  • Q&A: Actor Logan Marshall-Green Dares to Accept “THE INVITATION”

    ,,,

    From AND THEN THERE WERE NONE to THE HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL and THE BEAST MUST DIE, most horror films are screamingly obvious when asking audiences to attend their gatherings that will no doubt end in terror. But what makes THE INVITATION so particularly unsettling is that you have no idea what its dinner party will offer for dessert—especailly given its setting in the kind of airy, Silverlake-adjacent abode favored by so many seemingly well-adjusted LA hipsters.

  • Deaditorial: Negan, The Governor and “THE WALKING DEAD”‘s Villain Problem

    ,,

    THE WALKING DEAD set the stage for perhaps one of the most devastating episodes of horror television to date. Maggie, one of the most sympathetic characters of the show, was near death, with a pregnancy complication jeopardizing the lives of herself and her unborn child. The otherwise confident, selfless leader that is Rick Grimes was left a sweaty, shaken mess, humbled and emotionally compromised by an underestimated force. And almost every character had a “two days ‘till retirement” moment that would make their death bittersweet: Eugene’s Map, Abraham and Sascha’s decision to settle down, Carl’s armory chat with Enid, etc.

  • Q&A: Producer/Writer Brendan McCarthy on the Horrific Folklore of “CHERRY TREE” and “THE HALLOW”

  • The Dreadful Ten: 10 Horror Movies That Deserved A Sequel!

    ,,

    When it comes to sequels, the horror genre can be a fairly mucky playground. On one hand, you have fright films with fantastic follow-ups, whether it be ALIENS, WRONG TURN 2 or HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II. On the other hand, you have the myriad indirect sequels that were churned out by rights-holders to make a quick buck; does anyone remember the sequels to AMERICAN PSYCHO, ROSEMARY’S BABY or CARRIE? And then there are the horror offerings that, for either commercial or logistical reasons, never received the sequel they truly deserved, and likely won’t ever will. So for this week’s Dreadful Ten, FANGORIA offers up ten macabre movies that deserved a frightening follow-up!

  • Found Footage… For Real: Vintage “EVIL DEAD” Behind-The-Scenes Footage!

    ,,

    It might be a cliche, but there’s something magical about homemade horror filmmaking. Personally speaking, I remember running around a campground for a Video 101 assignment, camcorder in tow, filming a faux trailer for a serial killer thriller with nothing but whoever and whatever I could assemble on a Friday night in the middle of winter. And while that stupid, stupid movie has been lost in time, I’ll never forget how exhilarating and fun the process was, and how much that memory still stands out nearly seven years later.

  • On Set: Mickey Keating’s Psychological Creepfest “DARLING”

    ,,,

    Walking toward the Harlem townhouse serving as the key location of DARLING, your faithful Fango correspondent spots a couple of cops hanging around the front steps. It seems odd that such a small independent shoot would need this kind of security—and then it turns out that the uniformed lawmen are actually executive producer Larry Fessenden and his regular actor John Speredakos, making cameos in the movie.

  • Stream to Scream: “HE NEVER DIED”

    ,,

    There’s something effortlessly refreshing about films that confidently reside in their own universe. By offering characters with established history, rapport, and relationships, watching their stories unfold has an immersive quality that more grounded, gritty fare just cannot capture. Therefore, when something like HE NEVER DIED comes around and offers up a supernatural horror comedy that lives somewhere between JOHN WICK and TWIN PEAKS, it’s all the more of a twisted treat than your standard terror titles.

  • FANGO Flashback: “LAKE MUNGO”

    ,,

    While much can be said about the stylistic and tonal differences between faux-doc horror and found footage, the most prominent difference between the subgenres is the illusion of transparency. As any genre fan can tell you, found footage does its damnedest to downplay transparency, playing everything mostly straight-faced and therefore crafting many of the tired, repetitive trademarks of those films. However, faux-doc horror works so well because it appears to be on-the-level with the audience, offering multiple perspectives, editing, music and an atmosphere of truth that informs the execution.
