    Hammer to adapt Witchy novella, “THE DAYLIGHT GATE”

    Excitingly, witches are back in a big way. Is the short-lived sub-genre of Folk Horror, as well? It would seem so. In just over a week, FANGORIA is sponsoring Beyond Fest’s British Invasion double feature of occult-minded THE BORDERLANDS and Ben Wheatley’s psychedelic pagan period piece A FIELD IN ENGLAND. Both, set in rural England, follow in the influential footsteps of the likes of WITCHFINDER GENERAL, BLOOD ON SATAN’S CLAW and CRY OF THE BANSHEE. Now, Hammer Films (who tread that ground with the likes of the great THE DEVIL RIDES OUT and THE WITCHES) has taken an interest in Jeanette Winterson’s 17th-century set THE DAYLIGHT GATE.

    Daniel Radcliffe talks his Igor in upcoming “FRANKENSTEIN”

    In a recent live Q&A with SiriusXM, HARRY POTTER and THE WOMAN IN BLACK star Daniel Radcliffe was asked about his upcoming turn in the Max Landis-scripted FRANKENSTEIN. A further reconstructing of the mythos, it’s been said this new FRANKENSTEIN would present the classic tale through the eyes of Igor, the famed hunchbacked servant who officially joined the Frankenstein lineage in 1939′s SON OF FRANKENSTEIN. Radcliffe confirms as such and offers a whole lot more on the picture, which he describes as a “romp.”

    “THE DEMON’S ROOK” (Screamfest Movie Review)

    THE DEMON’S ROOK is exactly the kind of psychotronic gem we search for in no-budget/backyard/DIY horror. Director James Sizemore—wearing a vast array of horns and hats on the film including writer, star, producer and special makeup FX—is positively charged with realizing his entirely warped vision (is that what’s missing from so many movies?) of demons, netherworlds, surf rock barn parties and a bearded savior at all, and despite no, costs. Which is to say, in the already niche world of genre film, THE DEMON’S ROOK will occupy a special place in the hearts of a select few.

    Last night, October 7, FANGORIA lost one of the greatest and most significant contributors in its 34 year history.

The circumstances of Phil’s passing from organ failure are so deeply troubling and sad, that I’m doing my best to overcome these horrible feelings inside by remembering the good times we spent together, and the legacy Phil has left us.
