  • 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.

  • FANGO Flashback: “BLUE VELVET”

    ,,

    When did David Lynch’s BLUE VELVET first enter my consciousness? I had only been in the FANGORIA stable a few months back in 1985, when Dino De Laurentiis genre publicist Paul Sammon (now an author of excellent cinema books like the indispensible FUTURE NOIR: THE MAKING OF BLADE RUNNER) tipped me off that a new film from the ERASERHEAD auteur would be opening in the fall of 1986. The cult movie remains one of my favorite independent films to this day. Those who missed BLUE VELVET then can now catch it on the big screen when NYC’s Film Forum (209th West Houston; [212] 727-8110) unspools this classic from Friday, March 25th through Thursday, March 31st in a gorgeous 30th anniversary restoration, courtesy of Park Circus Films .

  • The Dreadful Ten: Top 10 Horror Icons of the New Millennium!

    ,,

    If there’s any common complaint this writer sees from the horror community at large, it’s that they just don’t make ‘em as they used to. Indeed, from SFX to production value, the horror game has certainly changed since the new millennium began sixteen years ago. However, that doesn’t mean the horror genre hasn’t produced some iconic characters in the past decade-and-a-half, and so for this week’s Dreadful Ten, FANGORIA is ranking our top 10 Horror Icons of the new millennium!

  • Stream to Scream: “CIRCLE”

    ,,

    The subgenre of “Sci-fi Thriller” is a very tricky line to toe when it comes to its bleedover appeal with fright fans. On one hand, there are Sci-fi Thrillers that are not very attached to the horror genre whatsoever; films like SOURCE CODE, LOOPER and LOGAN’S RUN may have scary elements, but are much more preoccupied with exploring the “science” aspects of “science fiction.” However, on the other hand, there are plenty of Sci-fi Thrillers that explicitly explore their dark side, firmly planting a foot in the horror genre, such as CUBE, THE TERMINATOR and, most recently, CIRCLE.

    With the evolution of horror moving towards the interactive experience, venues around the world have been changing the way fright fans consume fear.

  • FANGO Flashback: “SHORT NIGHT OF GLASS DOLLS”

    ,,

    Nothing gets the ball rolling on a good scary movie better than a person trapped in a single location. In the last decade alone, we’ve seen people get trapped in an elevator (DEVIL), a ski lift (FROZEN), a coffin (BURIED), and a radio station (PONTYPOOL); now, with the release of 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE, we’ll see what happens when three people trap themselves inside a Cold War-era bomb shelter. And while we hold out hope that 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE will prove itself as one of the all-time great movies about being trapped, no room or building can match the horror of being trapped inside your own body. This is the premise of Aldo Lado’s SHORT NIGHT OF GLASS DOLLS, one of the many exploitative murder mysteries – otherwise known as giallo – to be produced in Italy from the 1960s to the 1980s.
