  • Q&A: Horror Maestro Mick Garris Revisits “PSYCHO IV: THE BEGINNING”

    ,

    We all know the story of the Bates Motel and it’s strange dark secrets. We also know about that shy, man-child living up in that big ole dark house high on the hill just behind the motel. But how much do we actually know about him; this introverted, somber, effete painfully meek odd man? Well, now, with BATES MOTEL, we may think we know Norman Bates in and out, but horror director Mick Garris had the pleasure of bringing Norman Bates’s back story to the small screen first with his vibrantly lit and nicely plotted film PSYCHO IV. He also remembers star Anthony Perkins’s complex nature and attitude towards the film, working with the likes of Olivia Hussey and Henry Thomas, and applying masterful artistic designs on a made-for-TV film…

  • “LATE NIGHT DOUBLE FEATURE” (Film Review)

    ,,

    What is it about the anthology format that sings a siren’s call to so many aspiring horror filmmakers, plumping their imaginations and then luring their visions to sit in bite-sized confines? Despite having only a handful of truly classic examples to lionize, there is no shortage of independent attempts at reviving a storytelling structure longsince fallen out of fashion in the studio system. Canadian indie LATE NIGHT DOUBLE FEATURE is the one of the latest darts flung hopefully towards a bulls-eye occupied by the finest of episodic frights: TRILOGY OF TERROR, TALES FROM THE CRYPT (the Amicus picture), CREEPSHOW, TRICK ‘R TREAT, and precious few others.

  • “NEKROMANTIK 2” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,,

    Not long ago, we were blessed with a pretty stocked Cult Epics Blu-ray of German filmmaker Jörg Buttgereit’s infamous NEKROMANTIK (review), which made the world ill upon its 1987 arrival and rightfully retains its notoriety. Having acquired more experience behind the camera and further fascination with those who prefer sex with the dead after reading an interview with a female necrophile, Buttgereit decided a sequel would be a worthwhile endeavor.

    ,,

    With only 24 hours left to vote in the 22nd edition of the FANGORIA Chainsaw Awards, FANGORIA has tried to give every nominee their day in the sun. Yet at the end of the day, each nominee is only as strong as the fans who have seen them, and in this regards, some truly special work has gone unnoticed. However, for the first time ever, FANGORIA gave our nominees the opportunity this year to campaign actively here on FANGORIA.com to state their case for their film or performance, and the good folks from XLrator Media responded in a big way to rally behind their nominee, Gerard Johnstone’s HOUSEBOUND!

  • Have the “INSIDE” Duo Found Their “LEATHERFACE”?

    ,

    Though the sentiment in the horror community has been unsurprisingly negative towards the idea of another TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE movie following the dreadful (yet successful) TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D, the idea that the supremely talented Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo will be guiding the film is always somewhat of a reassurance. But even that aspect haven’t stopped fans from rallying against a Leatherface origin story; after all, wasn’t the character at his scariest when the closest thing we had to backstory was a shot of a big metal door? Nevertheless, the show is still going on, and now, according to The Wrap, Bustillo and Maury may have found the most infamous member of the Sawyer clan.

On the eve of WOLFCOP’s U.S. home video release, FANGORIA caught up with Dean to talk WOLFCOP, WOLFCOP 2 and… WOLFCOP IN SPACE?!…
