    Women in Horror Month: Debra Hill, the Mother of “HALLOWEEN”

    While February is commonly considered to the Black History Month, genre fans have also adopted the month for another cause: Women in Horror Month, recognizing and celebrating the often underappreciated women who help make the genre what it is today. While by no means demeaning the work of men within the genre, Women in Horror Month asks horror fans to turn their eyes beyond just the scream queens and final girls, but rather to the hard-working women who struggle to make great work specifically for the genre they love. Therefore, FANGORIA is celebrating Women in Horror Month by shining a light on some of the most instrumental women to the development of horror as we know it…

    Fango Flashback: “THE VANISHING” (a/k/a “SPOORLOOS”)

    As graphic as the genre can be at times, the truth about horror is that our greatest nightmares are the constructs of our own imagination. Albeit now a generic statement, the most frightening things about reality come from the unknown, as our conceivable thoughts can paint a picture much worse than reality. However, at the same time, people understand that there are truly sick individuals out there in the world, and in rare occasions, our imaginations have nothing on what horrors people are capable of for seemingly no reason. And it’s that terrifying double standard that fuels the obsession at the heart of George Sluizer’s THE VANISHING (a/k/a SPOORLOOS), and the brief glimmer of hope that takes us down the darkest depths of the human soul.
