  • Glass Doll Films Releases Grindhouse Classics “BONNIE’S KIDS”, “THE CENTERFOLD GIRLS” to Australian Blu-ray

    ,

    As most fans of the macabre know, the horror and exploitation genres have often walked hand-in-hand as entertainment normally reserved for the deviants and disturbed. However, the renaissance of both genres over the past decade has truly shined a new light on some of the exceptional work among the seedy unbelly of cinema, and now, thats to the Australian-based Glass Doll Films, two of the most renowned grindhouse flicks are coming to high definition with plenty of exclusive extras: Arthur Marks’ BONNIE’S KIDS and John Peyser’s THE CENTERFOLD GIRLS!

  • FANTASTICA Presents: Law and Horror

    ,,

    You’ve seen it before, you’ll see it again and you’ll see it coming from a mile away. It’s one of the most familiar plot devices in horror history: a family (or a married couple) will have just come in contact with some sort of malevolent force, and now, one of their own is injured or missing at the hands of said evil. Suddenly, someone grabs a phone, and without fail, someone will ask them who they’re calling. “We need to call the cops,” they’ll scream, exhausted and desperate by the ordeal. Suddenly, the phone is taken out of their hands by their loved one, who looks at them and spouts out a variation on the same line: “What are we going to tell them? _____ did this to our home? What will they think?” And with that simple line, the family (or couple) must turn to an outside source- often times an eccentric-type- to help them save their child and their lives.

  • “DEATHGASM” (Fantasia Movie Review)

    ,,,

    The metalhead helped make the horror genre strong. That Manpower LP cover with devil ladies and lightning, a parental nightmare during the Satanic Panic hysteria, and the power harnessed by rolling the die as a Chaotic Neutral Dwarf that would annihilate your enemies: This spirit existed in horror cinema’s heyday, meaning the ’80s. The real stuff. Denim warriors. Studs.

  • FANGO Flashback: Lucio Fulci’s “CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD”

    ,,

    If it’s not an endurance test on your gag reflex, then a Fulci film it is not. The Italian master of gooey, gory cinema, Fulci may not be known for having the most ironclad stories in horror history as films like CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD run low on sense and high on intensity. Conversely, Fulci embraced the power of dream logic, using it as a launching point to tell tales of suspense and fear with beautiful visuals, nail-biting set pieces and a sheer disregard for good taste. And as any fan of the bonkers, occasionally long-winded CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD can tell you, Fulci puts his heart and soul into every frame of his films, which allows them to resonate and build his cult following even today.

  • Exclusive Clip: Ben Jehoshua’s Creepy Kid Chiller “THE CHOSEN”

    ,

    Ever since THE EXORCIST changed the game over 40 years ago, there’s nothing quite like a child possession film to tap into the fears that so many have for their brothers, sisters, and children. Now, a new demonic force looks to rise in Ben Jehoshua’s THE CHOSEN, which looks to explore a whole new mythology in regards to demons and their desire for young souls. And with the Kian Lawley-starring film hitting theaters and VOD this week, FANGORIA is proud to premiere an exclusive clip from the fright flick!

  • Geeknation Renews “HOLLISTON” For Third Season, Ariescope Original Programming Now Live

    ,

    As fans of Adam Green and Joe Lynch’s podcast THE MOVIE CRYPT can tell you, 2014 was not the best year for the pair of fright filmmakers. After the dissolution of the independently produced show’s network, FEARnet, and the tragic death of HOLLISTON castmember Dave “Oderus Urungus” Brockie, HOLLISTON was left in limbo while Green and Lynch turned their attention to finishing their films DIGGING UP THE MARROW and EVERLY, respectively. However, after a long time of hints and teases, fans of HOLLISTON will be elated to know that the show will indeed return for a third season on Geeknation’s digital platform as exclusively revealed by Entertainment Weekly.

  • Stream to Scream: “HABIT” (1995)

    ,,

    When a name like “Larry Fessenden” comes to mind, many different people can think of many different things. To some, Fessenden is a virtuoso character actor, slipping into small yet great (and often charismatic) roles into a myriad of horror projects, whether it be a lead role in Glenn McQuaid’s I SELL THE DEAD or a scene-stealing cameo on an episode of THE STRAIN. To others, Fessenden is a miniature magnate of independent horror, with his Glass Eye Pix production company helping launch the careers of Ti West, Jim Mickle and many more. But what Fessenden should be best known as is one of the best independent directors in the genre today, and an excellent example of that reputation is his 1995 psychosexual vampire film, HABIT.
