  • Stream to Scream: “EXCISION”

    ,,

    For this writer, Richard Bates Jr.’s EXCISION is one of those essential genre titles that operate close to the vein of horror comedy and yet don’t quite follow the horror-comedy mold. Much akin to William Friedkin’s KILLER JOE and, to an extent, Daniel Waters’ HEATHERS, EXCISION carries a mean-streak and matter-of-fact presentation of its darker, disturbing material that feels less conventional and yet completely humorous in execution. And furthermore, EXCISION is the kind of film that features an old school vibe in that it moves and is stylized at its own pace, giving characters their own moments to live and breathe within the universe while presenting artistic flourishes that feel unique and different from other depictions of internal fantasies.

  • For Your Consideration: The 2016 Chainsaw Award Nominees for Best Foreign Language Film!

    ,,

    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 the Best Foreign Language Film category, there was some argument as to what technically counted for the category, eventually disqualifying technically-released-in-2015 film ANGST (due to it’s 1983 production) and WHITE DOG. Meanwhile, The Mo Brothers’ KILLERS and the anthology film MEXICO BARBARO were also in contention, but eventually were bumped out by its creepier competition. And after some careful consideration, FANGO found five fright flicks worthy of taking home the Gold Chainsaw.

  • The Dreadful Ten: Top 10 Horror Prequels!

    ,,

    When initially approaching the concept for this week’s Dreadful Ten, this writer thought that assembling titles would be easy as could be. After all, what is the horror genre known better for than all manners of prequels, sequels and spin-offs? However, upon further inspection, finding gems among the many horror prequels is more of a frustrating endeavor, with most of the best prequels happening on television and/or as flashbacks in a sequel. Nevertheless, FANGORIA was able to dig up ten petrifying prequels that made the grade!

  • Stream to Scream: “THE VEIL”

    ,,

    THE VEIL is quite a curious movie to behold, largely in that the filmmaking in and of itself tells a story within the story of the film. That story, of course, is a film that was originally found footage that- through a variety of means- has been changed to become a straightforward narrative… and yet, can’t quite give up the ghost of its original framing device. It’s a film where so much works from top to bottom and yet there’s something essential that couldn’t quite make the film click, and the rewriting/editing process to find that element feels ever apparent. And yet, because so much of the film works, THE VEIL isn’t quite a film to dismiss as you actively root for the project find greatness all the way up until the credits roll.

  • FANGO Flashback: “THE ENTITY”

    ,,

    In the grand scheme of haunting films, there is nothing quite like THE ENTITY. While it’s aesthetics might have been replicated in the past (particularly, the INSIDIOUS films appear to be particularly inspired by THE ENTITY), no other film comparably tackles such subject matter in a stylized, mainstream execution, let alone in a manner that feels visceral and terrifying. And not so surprisingly, perhaps the lack of thematically similar material helps the 33-year-old-film resonate as an intense experience in this day-and-age that one can appreciate more with each subsequent viewing.

  • The Dreadful Ten: 10 More Icons Who Should Be in The FANGORIA Hall of Fame

    ,,

    Unlike most Halls of Fame, the FANGORIA Hall of Fame is not built by committee but rather by the fans themselves. With voting open as a part of the Chainsaw Awards ballot, the FANGORIA Hall of Fame has seen a variety of horror icons inducted, from FX masters to Final Girls to even iconic zombies.. However, with only so many spots open every year since the Chainsaw Awards’ humble beginnings in 1992, that does mean there are a fair share of deserving horror figures who have yet to have the honor of induction.

  • For Your Consideration: The 2016 FANGORIA Chainsaw Award Nominees for Best TV Series!

    ,,

    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. Truth be told, this might have been one of the hardest categories for FANGO to narrow down: BATES MOTEL had a more solid season than ever before, while improvements were found in the latest outings of AMERICAN HORROR STORY, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES and THE STRAIN alike. Alas, there can only be five horror series that can earn FANGORIA’s nominations, and these five series were, in this writer’s opinion, the most consistently strong of the televised terrors in 2015.
