  • FANGO Flashback: “BELOW” (2002)

    ,,

    For most horror fans, BELOW is best categorized as the “submarine horror film,” likely because it’s one of the very, very few explicitly genre films set on a submarine. Yet if you think about it, submarines could be one of the easiest places to set a horror film; after all, it’s a claustrophobic metal tube that primarily is known for navigating the dark recesses of the ocean, and on a budgetary level, a filmmaker can get a lot of mileage out of a set primarily made of long, metal hallways. And beyond that, BELOW also holds the distinction of being a damn good horror movie, with the combination of director David Twohy and co-writer/producer Darren Aronofsky placing emphasis on scares and tension in ways many haunted house movies would only dream of doing.

  • “CITIZEN TOXIE: THE TOXIC AVENGER IV” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    Even for horror fans unfamiliar with the 40+ year running indie studio Troma, THE TOXIC AVENGER franchise remains the best known property among Troma’s intellectual property. Yet even with an iconic underground figure as Toxie, it’s been 15 years since THE TOXIC AVENGER had a proper entry released unto unsuspecting fans of splattery satire. However, TOXIC AVENGER fans can now at least enjoy the fourth (and, as of this writing, latest) addition in the franchise, subtitled CITIZEN TOXIE, in high definition, as Troma has given the film the Blu-ray treatment!

  • Stream to Scream: “SLEEPY HOLLOW” (1999)

    ,,

    Despite being in the FANGORIA Hall of Fame and synonymous with the modern Gothic movement, Tim Burton’s association with the horror genre remains a point of contention among horror fans to this day. While Burton has undeniably helmed horror films over the years, including BEETLEJUICE, DARK SHADOWS and SWEENEY TODD, some fright fans argue Burton is better known for his penchant towards dark, warped aesthetics than producing legitimate scare fare worthy of the genre mantle. Yet even the most hard-pressed horror hound has to admit that Burton put substance over style in at least one of his macabre movies, and it’s an impressive offering at that: 1999’s SLEEPY HOLLOW!

  • Netflix Orders 12-Episode Third Season of Anthology Show “BLACK MIRROR”

    ,

    Outside of the little-film-that-could known as IT FOLLOWS, was there any genre phenomenon this year that hit the zeitgeist as hard as Charlie Brooker’s BLACK MIRROR? Granted, the series has been buzzing among Brits and the more vigilant viewers for the past four years, but this twisted contemporary take on a TWILIGHT ZONE-esque anthology hit U.S. audiences like a brick wall when Netflix secured the exclusive streaming rights to the series. Now, Netflix and Charlie Brooker are taking BLACK MIRROR to the next level, as Variety has confirmed that Netflix has commissioned a 12-episode third season of BLACK MIRROR to begin production in the UK later this year.
