  • Q&A: Director Franck Khalfoun talks “i-LIVED”, “AMITYVILLE” & more…

    ,

    Though many old-fashioned horror fans have been resistant, and even sometimes hostile, to the idea of digital horror, the fact is that the burgeoning trend is an organic progression of genre storytelling. As films like THE DEN, UNFRIENDED and OPEN WINDOWS explore the digital realm into their nightmarish narratives, the incorporation of technology into horror is no different than when cell phones shook up the slasher, new technology helped usher in a new wave of J-Horror and the inexpensive mass production of cameras offered the found footage phenomenon.

  • FANGO Flashback: “MINDHUNTERS”

    ,,

    In relation to cinema, the work of director Renny Harlin is the equivalent of deep fried macaroni and cheese. On one hand, it’s not going to be good for your palate, and it’s not going to fulfill you like a lean, mean meal from an expert chef. On the other hand, it’s going to feel so good when you do consume it, and when you’re finished, all you’re going to want is more. And while a diet of deep fried mac-and-cheese would likely kill you in the long run, when the craving to watch a Renny Harlin flick comes around, resistance is futile.

I don’t want anyone walking out of the theater feeling worse than when they went in. That is not why I enjoy—or make—movies.

  • “SCREAM: THE TV SERIES: Season 1, Episode 1” (TV Review)

    ,,

    The pilot episode of MTV’s Scream opens with a familiar source of terror in teen horror as of late: the horror of embarrassing social media. A video of two girls making out in a car is uploaded to Youtube, leaving one of the high schoolers mortified. Played by Bella Thorne, the hot blonde teen who committed the act of outing the lustful car lesbians returns home after boasting about her bullying to her boyfriend, immediately takes off her clothes and blasts some modern alternative MTV pop music. The newly-designed Ghostface wastes no time at all, texting her puns and acting out a lame modernization of the original Scream’s iconic opening without any of the meta horror movie contexts that made the original so endearing and clever.
