    Gene Simmons, WWE Studios partner for new horror label Erebus Pictures

    For those who have been keeping on the up-and-up of contemporary horror films, you might have noticed WWE Studios’ recent extended focus on the horror genre. After co-distributing OCULUS and finding big screen success with THE CALL, they produced last year’s LEPRECHAUN: ORIGINS and SEE NO EVIL, and have stated their intention to pursue more horror projects with up-and-coming horror filmmakers. But today, WWE Studios has taken an even bolder step, partnering with KISS figurehead Gene Simmons to establish a new film production entity, Erebus Pictures.

    The Dreadful Ten: Top 10 Horrors We’d Like to See in 3D!

    It’s strange how, for something so commonly referred to as a “gimmick” by people in and outside of the industry, 3D has been a big part of horror history, and has been there for many of its milestones. During the ’50s, 3D was a definitive attraction when it came to CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON, which remains a selling point at revival screenings to this day, and also brought in audiences to such genre pictures as HOUSE OF WAX and DIAL M FOR MURDER. Later, during the horror surge of the early ’80s, the gimmick came back, most prominently during FRIDAY THE 13TH PART III, which effectively used 3D to enhance the slasher tropes of the time. And when 3D made it’s grand comeback in the late ’00s, it did so with horror by its side, with MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D, CORALINE and THE FINAL DESTINATION all pre-dating the post-AVATAR 3D boom. And while 3D is still a presence nowadays, it’s not nearly used as commonly as in past years, where almost every studio release would tack on 3D for a box office boost.

    Q&A: Executive Producer Brannon Braga talks “SALEM”

    From the first scene on, WGN America’s SALEM proved itself a force of horror to be reckoned with, offering shocking violence, explicit sexuality and top tier drama. And yet despite the limits of television that SALEM tested over the course of its first season, the show also had some much more fascinating elements on display, including an amazing sense of scope and a genuine interest in depicting the multiple facets of the dark arts. And with the second season premiering next week, one only knows how much darker and intense the series intends to go from here. Luckily, FANGORIA was able to catch up with executive producer and co-creator of SALEM, Brannon Braga, about what to expect from the upcoming season as well what new type of witchcraft will storm into town…

    “BATES MOTEL: Season 3, Episode 3″ (TV Review)

    For a series based on one of the most terrifying schizophrenic killers in cinema history, I really shouldn’t expect the same duality from the narrative quality of BATES MOTEL. However, if the third episode of the third season, “Persuasion,” is any indication, that just might be the case. While I lamented the direction of the seasonal arc in the last episode, with the show once again returning to the “big town with dirty secrets” storyline that’s as tiresome as it is familiar, the third episode gets back on track with the inter-family tension between Norman and Norma seen in the first episode, and finally brings us to a super eerie place for the first time this season.

    Joel Edgerton’s Blumhouse Collaboration Titled; Dated

    While many of us stateside cinephiles know Joel Edgerton as an actor, having risen to prominence in the past decade including taking up a MacReady-esque role in THE THING prequel, Australian audiences also know Edgerton as a successful screenwriter in his own right. Having penned the amazing modern noir THE SQUARE and crafted the story for the intense post-apocalyptic thriller THE ROVER, it was only a matter of time before Edgerton brought his behind-the-camera talents to Hollywood. And now that time has come, with Blumhouse having slated Edgerton’s debut as writer-director for a 2015 release, and offering the first official synopsis for the fright flick.

    Schwarzenegger’s Zombie Drama “MAGGIE” Finally Gets a Trailer!

    Personally speaking, with THE WALKING DEAD being as big as it was, I can’t remember the last time a feature length zombie film has drawn such curiosity and anticipation as Henry Hobson’s MAGGIE. Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin in a film that looks markedly different than most undead terror tales, the film was famously pulled from last year’s Toronto Film Festival after being acquired by Lionsgate, and leaving the film to premiere at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. And now, fright fans have their first chance to see what MAGGIE is all about, with the trailer finally being released earlier today.

    “THE X-FILES” Re-opened for 6-Episode Event Series in 2016

    Who knew that when THE X-FILES debuted back in 1993, it was destined to end up becoming a massive hit; a pop culture touchstone for which all genre TV, from supernatural sagas to crime procedurals, would be measured by? The show lasted for nine seasons (and two movies) through its world-building, its ability to sustain suspense, and its amazing feat of parlaying it two stars’ chemistry and sexual tension into being one of the primary curiosities in a show that revolved around uncovering evidence of extraterrestrials and government conspiracies.
