  • The Year in Horror, 2015: Ken’s Top 10 Horror Films!

    ,,,

    Make no mistake: 2015 was the year of horror television. Between stellar seasons of PENNY DREADFUL, SALEM, ASH VS. EVIL DEAD, HANNIBAL and THE WALKING DEAD, there was no place scarier or more fun than the small screen. When you add in the impressive terror titles making their way to high definition this year, the big screen fare of 2015 felt unfortunately like an afterthought. Nevertheless, 2015 did offer a respectable amount of haunting fright fare in the cinemas, much of which still sticks with this writer to this day.

  • FANGO Flashback: Christmas Carnage in “HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN” team’s “TREEVENGE”

    ,,,

    Ah, Christmas…the time of year when people get together to share love and joy. When parents and children gather around to exchange gifts under beautiful Christmas trees…trees that have been viciously hacked and sawed from their roots and dragged away from their own loved ones, bound and sold and carried off to strange dwellings to be roughly thrust into cold metal holders and festooned with tacky decorations!

  • FANGO Flashback: “BRIDE OF CHUCKY”

    ,,

    Following the release of CURSE OF CHUCKY, fans of the CHILD’S PLAY franchise rallied behind the film, many of whom called it a return to form for Don Mancini as well as Chucky as a frightening character. In fact, those same sentiments echoed that of the last time the CHILD’S PLAY franchise underwent retooling, following CHILD’S PLAY 3 beating a dead horse with the same old slasher formula. Of course, the last reinvention of CHILD’S PLAY came in the form of BRIDE OF CHUCKY, which not only served as a strong introduction of Charles Lee Ray into the serial-killer culture of the later 20th Century but built upon the mythology of the franchise to refreshingly weird places.

  • Stream to Scream: “LAST SHIFT”

    ,,

    While the old saying goes “never judge a book by its cover,” the same ideology can sometimes be difficult to apply to films with underwhelming, misrepresenting or flat-out terrible key art. In the age of streaming platforms, bad key art has almost become the standard in order to hook the widest viewership possible, even if it repels the film’s core audience. Yet on the flip side of bad streaming key art, they do present a certain benefit for these films by lowering expectations for the audience which, when paired with a truly fantastic film like Anthony DiBlasi’s LAST SHIFT, can make a surprising experience all the more unpredictable and worthwhile.

  • FANGO Flashback: “PSYCHO III”

    ,

    Much like snowflakes and fingerprints, you’ll never find two horror fans with the same opinions about the PSYCHO sequels. Perhaps among the most divisive franchises in horror history, it’s difficult to find a critical consensus on the later tales of Norman Bates, whether it be Richard Franklin’s PSYCHO II, Mick Garris’ PSYCHO IV, the variations of BATES MOTEL or Anthony Perkins’ PSYCHO III. And while this writer has never been a fan of PSYCHO III, especially considering my love for PSYCHO and PSYCHO II, the time felt right to give PSYCHO III another shot, hoping to eschew the PSYCHO legacy and take it as a slasher in its own right.

  • Deaditorial: The Art of the Horror Tie-in

    ,

    Believe it or not, the horror genre is at a strangely unpredictable place at the moment. With haunting movies on the decline, the battle for the horror zeitgeist is raging on between the returning J-Horror and the slowly reviving slasher subgenres. Meanwhile, horror TV is at an all-time high, dominated by THE WALKING DEAD and AMERICAN HORROR STORY while still offering prestigious entertainment like PENNY DREADFUL and HANNIBAL. And horror video games are on the upswing, with UNTIL DAWN and THE EVIL WITHIN filling in the hole left by the dissolution of SILENT HILLS.
