  • FANGO Flashback: “NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD” (1990)

    ,,

    As surprising as it may sound, George A. Romero has a fairly impressive number of solid remakes to his filmography; while a stinker like 2008’s DAY OF THE DEAD may attempt to spoil the bunch, remakes of THE CRAZIES, DAWN OF THE DEAD and, of course, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD have done well by their predecessor. In the case of the latter, the film at least knew it had the original director’s seal of approval, with longtime collaborator Tom Savini behind the camera and Romero himself producing. But even in a time before the “remake” stigma of the mid-to-late-’00s, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1990) does a fairly great job of honoring the original film while ultimately offering a different approach, one that underplays some of the social commentary of the ‘68 film while modernizing the story for more demanding contemporary audiences.

  • The Dreadful Ten: 10 Awesome ’90s Horror Films!

    ,,

    As someone who grew up watching the many horror films of the ’90s, it’s always a bit disappointing to hear the decade get so much flack for its contributions to the genre. Sure, the ’80s are a tough act to follow, considering how many phenomenal, practical FX-driven fright films were spawned during that time, but the ’90s has had its fair share of awesome scare fare, most of which are miles more memorable that the decades that have come since. Even the guilty pleasures of the ’90s- your DEEP BLUE SEAs and ANACONDAs and what-have-you- are much easier to defend than some of the stinkers of the ’80s! So with that on our macabre mind, FANGORIA has decided to list off ten absolutely awesome ’90s horror offerings for your creepy consideration!

  • “BATES MOTEL: Season 4, Episode 8” (TV Review)

    ,,

    Episode 8 of BATES MOTEL is titled “Unfaithful” and the title couldn’t be more apt, as that’s exactly how Norman views his mother’s position with her new husband. Of course, Norma justifies her marriage and protective motherhood as “trying to protect” everyone from everything but for this viewer, the act is wearing thin. As for Norman, his anger and newfound inner brat is, while unappealing, not unwarranted. It becomes evident to him that he doesn’t fit into these new lives which leaves him feeling a growing resentment, planting more seeds towards the inevitable.

  • Stream to Scream: “THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD”

    ,,

    While horror anthologies may be one of the most debated subgenres out there, it’s unfortunate that Amicus- one of the seminal anthology producers of its time- is often left out of the conversation. Known best as their “portmanteau” productions, Amicus’ specific, often star-studded approach to anthology filmmaking is unique and rather fantastic, and yet they often find themselves absent from the discussions and listicles of the current horror landscape. Yet as Amicus becomes more accessible with each passing day with their inclusion on streaming and Blu-ray, the chances of their impressive anthology fare- such as TALES FROM THE CRYPT, DR. TERROR’S HOUSE OF HORRORS and THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD- becoming more pertinent to contemporary audiences grow with it.

  • Found Footage… For Real: Vincent Price in Tim Burton & Rick Heinrichs’ “VINCENT”

    ,,

    As many horror icons as there may be in the lexicon of the genre- and there are many– I don’t think there is any as instantly recognizable and quite as beloved as Vincent Price. A brilliant performer in his own right, Price’s adoration of the horror genre went far beyond the projects he appeared in; in fact, to many, Price was as synonymous with the horror genre as ghosts and ghouls themselves. But while Price’s wit and class might never be replicated in the horror genre, there’s no doubt his influences spread far and wide, especially for his EDWARD SCISSORHANDS’ cohort Tim Burton.

  • Q&A: Director Agnieszka Smoczynska on the Lore of “THE LURE”

    ,,

    Poland has never been known as a hotbed of essential genre cinema, but that will likely change as director Agnieszka Smoczynska’s THE LURE continues to attract audiences worldwide on the festival circuit. The outré movie, which plays Queens’ Museum of the Moving Image’s Panorama Europe 2016 fest (May 6-22, where you can also catch Estonia’s GHOST MOUNTAINEER) and also swims into Montreal’s Fantasia film festival this summer, ranks as the best mermaid-vampire-disco musical you will ever see.
