    Report: The Stanley Film Festival, an Essential Horror Retreat

    Traveling to the Stanley Hotel is already something of a pilgrimage. The historic lodge, built in 1909 and famous for its spectral activity, looms over Estes Park, CO, surrounded by stunning, natural but also otherworldly landscape. Then of course, there’s the fact that it was a catalyst in the mind of Stephen King; his own stay there inspired THE SHINING, one of the most seminal works of horror there is. Lucky for us then, The Stanley Hotel, the Denver Film Society and programmers Michael Lerman and Landon Zakheim have enhanced the inherent aura of the locale with the Stanley Film Festival. A weekend-long celebration of genre in all its forms, which wrapped its second edition over the course of April 24-27, is quickly establishing itself not only as a perfect horror vacation, but as growing into a vital horror retreat—an essential destination for all those who worship at the altar of the macabre.

    Jason Blum talks “OCULUS”; Film Closes Scotland’s Dead by Dawn

    Now out in wide release stateside, Mike Flanagan’s haunting, destabilizing OCULUS (of which Fango heartily recommends) makes its way to Scotland this week as part of the annual Dead by Dawn International Horror Film Festival. Closing a stellar lineup that includes William Castle greats, CANDYMAN, New Zealand surprise HOUSEBOUND and more, OCULUS is sure to finish the weekend with more than a few hairs raised. Prior to its U.S. bow, Fango spoke to horror producer extraordinaire Jason Blum, who’s built a mini-empire of low budget, high earning scare fare. Fairly unusual in his filmography for being completed before Blum came aboard, the always candid filmmaker brought his usual energy and optimism for his upcoming slate—including THE PURGE 2—to our chat.

    Up to Snuff: Why ‘Found Footage’ is Good for Horror

    There’s an undeniable stigma that accompanies the term “found footage.” After effectively phasing out the reign of “torture porn,” these first person frighteners redefined the face of studio horror, thanks to consistently low budgets and easy-to-market visuals. Yet, as with any in-vogue subgenre, the sheer amount of found footage films has left many horror fans jaded, a sentiment only increased by the questionable quality of several offerings.
