  • Stream to Scream: “BLACK DEATH”

    ,,

    Horror is such a wide expanse of a genre. It can fit into a lot of time periods and situations and provide different levels of fear and repulsion. One concept that the horror genre has tackled time and time again is the fear of disease, either on the personal scale of one person’s body rotting away from a virus, or a pandemic that manages to ravage the whole of human civilization.  In these scenarios, what proves to be even scarier than the disease itself is the reaction that the fallible characters have to them. We all make bargains with ourselves and others to get what we want, and no one is more prone to desperate deal making than those willing to avoid death at all cost.

  • Interview: Brian Yuzna talks “SOCIETY” Blu-ray and Sequel!

    ,

    Brian Yuzna’s SOCIETY is easily one of the strangest damn horror movies ever made and as a direct result, one of the best. It’s one of those films that slots into the horror genre almost out of a lack of any other proper genre classification. The project was the directorial debut for Yuzna, who had previously established himself in the business by producing Stuart Gordon’s first string of flicks starting with RE-ANIMATOR. Given total directorial freedom, Yuzna delivered something that is simultaneously a searing satirical comment America’s great class divide, a campy send up of teen melodrama, a paranoid thriller, and thanks to an unforgettably icky finale, one of the goopiest genre flicks ever made.

  • Q&A: Stephen Lang on playing (un)dead in “SALEM” and “THE MONKEY’S PAW”

    ,

    While SALEM’s second season offers the incredible addition of performers such as Lucy Lawless, Stuart Townsend and Jeremy Crutchley, one shouldn’t forget some of the incredible dramatic powerhouses who helped anchor the first season, including Xander Berkeley and Stephen Lang. Obviously, showrunners Brannon Braga and Adam Simon never forgot, and in fact created a creepy blast from the past by bringing Lang’s Increase Mather back from the grave just in time for the second season’s witch war. With Lang making his debut on last week’s impressive episode and showing face again this week, FANGORIA spoke to the esteemed actor about Increase Mather, playing undead and whether or not he’ll haunt WGN America’s flagship series in the years to come…

  • “SALEM: Season 2, Episode 7” (TV Review)

    ,,

    It’s not often that a series that trades so often in the sensational like SALEM slows down its action to offer something contemplative. But in the latest episode, “The Beckoning Fair One” helmed by horror master Joe Dante, SALEM takes a moment to breath while investigating the interpersonal dynamics of SALEM’s most sinister inhabitants. Luckily for the viewer, that narrative gamble pays off as the episode sets the stage well for the impending witch war while still offering every demented aspect that makes the show so endearing in the first place.

  • “LAKE NOWHERE” (Movie Review)

    ,,,

    A number of movies lately have aped not only the shooting style of ’80s horror films but the visual degradation of VHS tapes from the period, but not many have turned out as well as the short feature LAKE NOWHERE, a little slice of heaven for fans of vintage bloodfests.

  • “AREA 51” (Film Review)

    ,,

    It’s a very curious thing to be a critic and a horror fan experiencing Oren Peli’s AREA 51 for the first time, especially given that this writer will inherently have somewhat of a different experience than most casual moviegoers. That’s not to insinuate that there is any kind of bias towards the film, but much like in taking a test, there will always be a divide between those who studied the subject and those who come in completely fresh to it. Obviously, the found footage shocker- finished in 2009 and then subject to more than five years of rewrites, reshoots and post-production work- has been one to watch for a very long time, especially considering the director’s previous effort is now a legitimate piece of horror history (and one that should be used as a free pass for a theatrical release for whatever would follow). And while there are snippets of a completely different horror film that even can be seen in stills from AREA 51’s trailer, this writer went into AREA 51 giving it the benefit of the doubt, setting the past aside as much as possible and hoping to see that the director of PARANORMAL ACTIVITY still can scare behind the director’s chair.

  • Q&A: Janet Montgomery on the salacious, sinister “SALEM”

    ,

    For every weird, wild and wicked place that SALEM goes over the course of its second season, there’s few elements that bring it back to Earth as effectively as the presence and gravitas of Janet Montgomery, the British actress who provides one of the most emotional and effortlessly evil performances on WGN America’s flagship program. And with the next episode, the Joe Dante-helmed “The Beckoning Fair One”, looking to reshape everything we thought we knew about SALEM, Montgomery spoke to FANGORIA about her role on the show, challenges in the second season and getting physical in the impending witch war…
