  • 30 for 31: “POPCORN” (1991)

    ,,,

    I’m thrilled to see 1991’s POPCORN finding a new pulse with a whole new generation of viewers. The film just recently screened as part of Los Angeles’s Beyond Fest, and Synapse has a snazzy Blu-ray of the movie coming in early 2015, which is awesome considering this film previously never made it past the original VHS release. This loving tribute to gimmick films of the 1950s and 60s, predating Joe Dante’s MATINEE, is as gruesome as it is fun.

  • Doug & Ralph Brekan Team For Surreal Horror Film, “LIGHTHOUSE LANE”

    ,

    Ralph Brekan is a prolific artist who has had an extensive career in the art world, exploring themes of popular culture and mass consumerism. Drawing heavily from the pop art movement and commercial artists of the ’60s and ’70s, Brekan’s designs blends those aesthetics with color theories applied by the abstract expressionists. His fine art has been exhibited in three continents, seven countries and eleven cities, making Brekan a recognizable figure throughout the international art scene. Brekan has managed to fuse his extensive background in fine art to working professionally in props and art departments for motion pictures and theatre. Now, through his company, Brekan Arts International, this work has culminated into producing and editing his debut feature, LIGHTHOUSE LANE.

  • Shadowvision: “DRESSED TO KILL”

    ,,,

    Welcome to Shadowvision, a regular column in which Fangoria.com revisits modern horror films in black-and-white. The purpose is to analyze these films through a new lens, seeing if the classically informed viewing experience will give a new angle to familiar images. If you’d like to watch along at home, it’s simple: go into your TV settings and desaturate the picture completely, then adjust the contrast and brightness to fit either standard or high definition.

  • Q&A: Checking in with Rob Zombie and “31”

    ,,

    If I’m honest, I don’t know why exactly musician and filmmaker Rob Zombie is presently doing a round of interviews. The performer is currently in the midst of recording a new album, as well as running a polarizing crowdfunding campaign for 70s set Halloween-horror 31, yes, but neither are at a stage of completion. If anything, the opportunity seemed one to simply “check in” with Rob Zombie, one that fans and FANGORIA would take advantage of regardless.

Therefore, we present 30 for 31, in which FANGORIA recounts the cinema that most strongly represents what Halloween means to us.

  • Q&A: Screenwriter Frank Woodward on “WRONG TURN 6”

    ,,

    At this point, gorehounds need no introduction to the WRONG TURN franchise, the resident direct-to-video splatter sessions for 20th Century Fox. Filling in the demand for grue by the gallon as well as silly slasher set-pieces, WRONG TURN has built a cult audience that’s followed them for 6 movies, the latest being WRONG TURN 6: LAST RESORT. Putting these backwoods killers in a new location with new tools at their disposal, WRONG TURN 6 looks to hopefully breathe new life into the series, largely thanks to screenwriter Frank Woodward’s enthusiasm for both the series and the genre. Woodward recently spoke to FANGORIA, revealing his approach to the sixth WRONG TURN film and his hopes that LAST RESORT won’t be just that…
