  • Found Footage… FOR REAL: Zacherley, The Cool Ghoul on The Mike Douglas Show!

    ,,

    In the world of horror hosts, there have been many who made a career of their sharp wits and love for the horror audience, including Vampira, Svengoolie, Joe Bob Briggs, Elvira and many, many more. However, Eastbound fright fans should undoubtedly be familiar with the grandaddy of horror hosts, Zacherley (a/k/a John Zacherle), a seminal horror personality unlike any other. While Zacherley, “The Cool Ghoul,” has made a name for himself as a multifaceted talent in the horror community, he was equally as charming even outside the genre, as one can see in this rare clip of Zacherley in on the Cleveland-based MIKE DOUGLAS SHOW!

  • Eerie Episodes: “THE NIGHT STALKER: The Werewolf”

    ,,

    While the age of streaming certainly has it’s pro’s and con’s, one of its greatest benefits is the ability to access archives of old horror television and introduce it to a new generation. In this respect, as someone who grew up watching THE X-FILES and FREAKYLINKS, KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER is both a great classic horror series but a fascinating time capsule as well. Humorous, endearing and fantastically written, THE NIGHT STALKER was the first horror series of its kind, and often treated the lore and mythology of classic horror villains with respect in a way most TV series at the time would respond with parody.

  • FANGO Flashback: “THIR13EN GHOSTS”

    ,,

    Having grown up as a horror hungry genre fan in the ‘90s, this writer will always have a certain affection to the largely maligned fright fare of the decade as well as the early ‘00s. This means, no matter their myriad flaws and frustrations, I will often find myself defending the post-SCREAM slasher flicks, bloated animal attack horror and even the industrial ghost stories that attempted to add a HELLRAISER vibe to classic haunting tales. In that last category sits the heyday of Dark Castle films, who through several horror offerings, gave grislier, largely imaginative remakes of William Castle’s golden-age nightmares, with the strongest likely being Steve Beck’s THIR13EN GHOSTS.

    ,,

    With voting season now open on the FANGORIA Chainsaw Awards, fans are putting their minds at work to select their favorites out of every potential nominee. When it came to Best Supporting Actor, the competition was fierce, with WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS’ Jemaine Clement, LET US PREY’s Liam Cunningham, and WHEN ANIMALS DREAM’s Lars Mikkelsen all in contention. Hell, even narrowing down the nominees for BONE TOMAHAWK alone was a bit of a chore, with Matthew Fox almost equally as deserving of a nod! Yet with the amount of nominations limited to five spots, FANGORIA had to cut through the crowd to select top-tier supporting performances of 2015!
