    Return of the Dragon: Know Your “HANNIBAL”!

    It’s been nearly 30 years since the first cinematic iteration of Hannibal Lecter hit audiences in Michael Mann’s MANHUNTER, and even that took place two years before THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS even hit book shelves. And now, with Thomas Harris’ cerebral cannibal now gracing the small screen in an elegant and eerie fashion, FANGORIA is looking back at each of the respective Dr. Lecter’s who have made their mark on the big and small screen…

    Stream to Scream: “PET SEMATARY”

    “The soil of a man’s heart is stonier.” These words are intoned by both Jud Crandall and the helpful spectre Pascow at different points in the classic Stephen King novel/film PET SEMATARY. It’s a sentiment that can easily be applied to King’s adapted filmography, which is a quarry pit filled with diamonds and rocks. The aforementioned 1989 film, directed by Mary Lambert (whose other genre credits include PET SEMATARY II, URBAN LEGEND: BLOODY MARY, and the classic TALES FROM THE CRYPT episode “Collection Completed”) and scripted by King himself (who also enjoys a brief cameo as a minister during a funeral scene) undoubtedly stands out as one of the diamonds. Nearly thirty years after its release, PET SEMATARY still has that kind of scary sheen that supernatural films try but often fail to emulate.

    FANGO Flashback: “WITCHERY”

    In 2011, Comic-Con was doing this huge promotion for the David Hasselhoff Comedy Central Roast, and publicists had been handing out Hasselhoff facemasks to thousands of attendees. That’s right: thousands of “David Hasselhoffs” were walking around Comic-Con! A Hoff-faced patron came over to the FANGORIA booth with his mask on, and asked, “Can the Hoff be in a horror film?” I replied, “Well, he was in WITCHERY.” Crickets…. Yeah, the Hoff was WITCHERY!

    FANGO Flashback: “DUEL”

    Despite the stubborn arguments of some jaded fright fans, there’s no denying that JAWS is an essential film in the canon of the horror genre. The iconic score, the incredible practical effects and the genuine tension that creeps throughout; JAWS is a pop culture phenomenon that doesn’t only have the replay value of a genuine horror classic, but also the palpable scare factor that hits audiences hard to this day. And while Steven Spielberg never quite returned to out-and-out horror territory since, and understandably so considering the troubled production of JAWS, the film might have never been as effective had Spielberg not had a crash course in the craft of suspense and terror with DUEL.

    “SALEM: Season 2, Episode 9” (TV Review)

    It’s very rare that a horror show like SALEM can get this far into a season while remaining largely unpredictable. The series has expertly played its narrative cards, and with every direction you think they might go, they choose a less expected path in a way that is not only satisfying but organic to the characters on display. Hence, in their latest episode entitled “Wages of Sin”, SALEM once again pulls the rug out from under the audience, sending one major character to the pits of hell while dragging others through their figurative hells as well.

    Stream to Scream: “DEAD SNOW 2: RED VS. DEAD”

    While generally well-received, financially successful and, at the very least, having earned the notoriety of “that nazi zombie movie” among contemporary horror fans (over the likes of OUTPOST and SHOCKWAVES), DEAD SNOW has been a rather divisive movie among horror audiences. Some fright fans took Tommy Wirkola’s Scandinavian scare fare in stride, praising the fun approach to the material and splattery action that would cement it as a modern midnight movie. Others, however, were less impressed; whether it be using the “harbinger” trope or aping too much of Sam Raimi’s EVIL DEAD aesthetics, harder critics donned it too derivative for its own good. Thus when a sequel was announced, the response was a surprising balance between cheers and apprehension, even if the time since its premiere had garnered DEAD SNOW 2: RED VS. DEAD a mounting sense of goodwill.
