  • “TWIN PEAKS” Revival Offers Massive, Star-Studded Full Cast Announcement!

    ,

    In the past two years since the TWIN PEAKS revival was announced (as well as its rocky road to development), the few bits of casting speculation floating around the trades posited that Showtime’s third season would be somewhat of a career retrospective for David Lynch, with cast members from BLUE VELVET, WILD AT HEART, LOST HIGHWAY, MULHOLLAND DRIVE and more making their way into the series. However, no one could have guessed that TWIN PEAKS’ return would be as massive as it appears, as Deadline revealed the full cast line-up, which features collaborators new and old!

  • The Dreadful Ten: 10 Horror Films for Science Fans!

    ,,

    One common misconception about the horror genre is that, due to their reliance on emotional response, they’re somehow intellectually weaker than standard dramatic cinema. Though that could be attributed to the amount of scare fare out there, having outproduced almost every comparative genre in the industry, there are certainly a good amount of horror films for the more scientific minds out there. So for this week’s Dreadful Ten, FANGORIA offers up 10 horror films best suited for science lovers!

  • Q&A: Filmmaker Jeremy Saulnier on “GREEN ROOM,” Punk Inspirations and Patrick Stewart

    ,,,

    Writer/director Jeremy Saulnier is poised for his first mainstream hit when GREEN ROOM goes into theaters nationwide this Friday—even though it’s as aggressive and confrontational as independently made genre films get. Saulnier spoke to FANGORIA about how it came together, the film’s basis in real life and his star Patrick Stewart.

  • Q&A: Adam Egypt Mortimer, Sarah Adina Smith & Nicholas McCarthy talk “HOLIDAYS”

    ,

    One of the best aspects of contemporary horror anthology films is the diversity of cinematic visions that come with the territory. Whether a segment goes for gasps, laughs or dry-heaves, the fact that you get a different flavor of filmmaking with each passing tale is fantastic, especially for the curious fright fans out there who are likely to find themselves down a rabbit hole of the contributor’s past work. And when it comes to filmmakers, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more diverse array of styles and tones than in HOLIDAYS, now in select theaters and VOD from Vertical Entertainment. FANGORIA recently spoke to three of HOLIDAYS’ wicked directorial roster- THE MIDNIGHT SWIM’s Sarah Adina Smith, SOME KIND OF HATE’s Adam Egypt Mortimer, and THE PACT’s Nicholas McCarthy- about their respective segments, building universes and what’s next in their frightening filmography…

  • “BATES MOTEL: Season 4, Episode 5 & 6” (TV Review)

    ,,

    Let me start by saying Episode five of BATES MOTEL’s stellar fourth season has some of the best Norma one-liners we have heard in a long time. As Romero and she try to put the house back together after a break-in, Norma is trying to rationalize why she would be a target of such destructive vandalism. In classic Norma fashion, she says “What the hell, Alex? I have been so good. I’ve totally kept to myself, all I have been thinking about is Norman and getting him better, I’ve been busy marrying you. I haven’t had time to piss anyone off.”

  • Event Report: The Life-Changing, Addictive Experience of The Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival

    ,

    For this writer, 2016 is proving to be a year of firsts: first time writing for FANGORIA, first time living abroad, and my first time attending the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFFF). Truth be told, until this year, I’d never heard of BIFFF; I am a huge fan of genre films and festivals, but until this year, work obligations kept me confined to the Denver area. Don’t get me wrong, there are some superb film festivals in that neck of the woods: The Stanley Film Festival, Mile High Horror Film Festival, and the Denver Film Festival, but there’s nothing quite like BIFFF.

  • Release Date Shuffle: “THE BYE BYE MAN”, “THE BLACKCOAT’S DAUGHTER”

    ,

    Just a few weeks ago, FANGORIA reported that STX Entertainment’s upcoming horror venture THE BYE BYE MAN was moved up from a Halloween release to early June, setting the film one week before the release of THE CONJURING 2 in a strong vote of confidence. Since then, the trailer and poster for THE BYE BYE MAN have been released and all seemed to be according to plan… until just days ago, when news broke that THE BYE BYE MAN would be pushed back from June all the way to December 9th, near the release date that KRAMPUS inhabited late last year.

  • “DANGEROUS MEN” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    In many ways, the Alamo Drafthouse brand has become a safe harbor for the odd, obscure and altogether ostracized film. While the Drafthouse Films distribution model has offered high-class art film, transgressive foreign fare and excursions into the absurd, Drafthouse locations around the country have hosted unique repertory screenings of classic and cult titles that can’t be found at your local multiplex. Yet nothing quite compares to how Drafthouse has help reinvigorate the “midnight movie” model, and by reintroducing films like MIAMI CONNECTION, ROAR and DANGEROUS MEN to the world, Drafthouse has helped cement a new legacy for insane and incompetently-made cinema otherwise lost in time.
