  • “GODDESS OF LOVE” (Film Review)

    ,,

    When a horror film- or any film for that matter- is subject to the independent production process, the sheer lack of budget and time to bring the story to reality is a true test to the mettle of a filmmaker. For some, the temptation to cut as many corners as possible and stretch out any given moment in an amateur attempt to get to feature length is an irresistible one. However, tried-and-true filmmakers rely on resources, passion and healthy collaboration to bring their story to life as authentically as possible. Jon Knautz certainly falls in the latter category, and in that regards, GODDESS OF LOVE uses its low-budget means to its advantage by crafting an utterly claustrophobic and bold film that is gripping from start to finish.

  • “COP CAR” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    While foreign horror fans may know Jon Watts best from his yet-to-be-released-stateside debut film CLOWN, the filmmaker made one hell of an impression with his indie thriller COP CAR earlier this year. And upon watching the film, COP CAR is really worth the hype, offering a lean, mean story of unassuming children in fatal danger with an atmosphere that feels like a mix between Coen Brothers crime film with the pacing of a Micheal Haneke flick. And with a new Blu-ray from Universal Home Entertainment, viewers will have a chance to experience the flick in a whole new light thanks to a stunning 1080p transfer.

  • The Dreadful Ten: Top 10 Horrors We’d Like To See in 3D, Part 2!

    ,,

    Six months ago, FANGORIA posted an edition of our beloved Dreadful Ten column focusing on the fright flicks we would most want to see in 3D, if ever given the chance. And while post-conversion 3D has a bad name among the horror community, the process can be used for good or can even enhance the experience, especially in the cases of JURASSIC PARK or PREDATOR. Hell, in Europe, it’s nearly routine for classic genre titles to get 3D Blu-ray rereleases! Therefore, we decided to add another batch of terror titles that this writer would love to see in the third dimension, whether it be for their incredible FX make-up or cinematography that is begging for the increased depth…

  • Arrow Video Blu-ray Round-Up: “THE BEAST”, “EATEN ALIVE” & More…

    ,,

    With a mind towards the obscure, the fascinating and the fantastic, there’s a reason why Arrow Video has earned the reputation as the unofficial Criterion Collection of the genre. Yet with their incredible restorations, top-tier special features and a very specific film selection, the comparison is more than justified and equally as impressive. Nevertheless, much like how beauty is in the eye of the beholder, film’s subjective nature might make choosing Arrow titles a risky task, and therefore, FANGORIA has rounded up Arrow Video’s latest titles to help fright fans find the right addition to their horrific high-def collection.
