  • FANTASTICA Presents: The Small Scream, or Why Horror Deserves Television

    ,,

    As some people might have figure out in the last 20 years, the internet can sometimes be a really awful place for rational discussion. Thanks to knee-jerk reactions, simple-minded trolling and a wave of intolerable ignorance, message boards around the net have become defunct while social media has become a place for more intimate, depressing forms of harassment. When you throw in something like film culture, where every opinion is divine until otherwise stated, the internet can be a shark tank as subjects like reboots, sequels, film adaptations and modern cinema are as likely to rouse vehement hate as opposed to any sense of open-mindedness.

    ,

    For contemporary horror fans, one of the most common complaints is that filmmakers today just “don’t make ‘em like they used to.” However, with Michael Polish’s intimate thriller AMNESIAC, fright fans are in store for a blast from the past, speaking the language of suspense akin to that of Alfred Hitchcock and Roman Polanski. With the macabre movie hitting this Friday, FANGORIA spoke to Polish about AMNESIAC, old school thrillers and even his time in front of the camera in SOME KIND OF HATE…

  • “BURYING THE EX” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    Out of the many of the proclaimed “Masters of Horror” working today, there’s few who keep their cinematic voices as refreshing and versatile as Joe Dante. While his budgets and resources are a far cry from his subversive studio days, Dante still goes for broke in terms of his projects and subject matter as opposed to slumming it with annoying tailored fan service. There’s no better example of Dante’s evolving voice than BURYING THE EX, a potentially by-the-numbers Rom-Zom-Com that escapes its meager means via Dante’s ambition and willingness to get down and dirty with the subject matter.

  • FANGO Flashback: “BONES” (2001)

    ,,

    Upon its initial release, BONES was not defined by the impressive track record of director Ernest Dickerson, nor was it defined by New Line Cinema, which had been struggling to find a horror successor to the nearly decade defunct NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET franchise. No, BONES was defined by and pre-emptively written off by many horror fans because of its star, rapper Snoop Dogg, whose face and thin visage would define the marketing for BONES. However, because BONES was regarded (and disregarded) as “that Snoop Dogg horror movie,” not many horror aficionados took the time to give the movie a chance. Had they did, perhaps they would have seen what this writer saw when revisiting the film one week ago: a genuinely creepy and incredibly fun fright flick with shades of imaginative insanity throughout.
