    FANGO Contributor Izzy Lee Brings Scary Short Films to Frightfest, Fantasia Film Festival

    Though the top genre festivals in the world often grab fright fans’ attention with the latest and most desired horror features, one mustn’t forget the array of fantastic horror shorts that one can see in the festival scene. And of course, with the many writers who lend their unique, critical voices to the pages of FANGORIA, it’s no surprise that many also find their voices in the world of short form cinema, making an impression from one city to the next with their visual nightmares. One FANGORIA contributor, Izzy Lee, is among the hardest working short film directors in the genre, and the proof lies in the pictures as two of her latest shorts, entitled POSTPARTUM and A FAVOR, have landed screenings at the prestigious Fantasia International Film Festival as well as UK’s beloved FrightFest!

    The Dreadful Ten: 10 Horror Villains Who Deserve A Comeback

    While sometimes the horror community can have a bit of a kneejerk reaction to news of remakes, reboots, what-have-you, the simple fact is that they’re not going anywhere. But this writer can certainly understand such polarized responses; after all, what is horror cinema but a genre defined by its icons? Universal Monsters, the slashers of the ‘70s and ‘80s, creepy creatures we know by name: our need for new boogeymen has fueled some of the most iconic nightmares in cinematic history.

    Flesh and Blood: “CAT PEOPLE” (1982)

    As any fright fan knows, the horror genre has a particularly salacious relationship with sexually explicit content. And while nudity so often goes side by side with decapitated heads and brutal bloodletting, there are also horror filmmakers throughout the years who made an art form out of the human body with an appreciation of our most lurid and lucid desires. And it’s with that macabre mentality in mind that FANGORIA is proud to announce our partnership with Mr. Skin for a brand new NSFW column that looks to provoke our minds as well as our more physical impulses, FLESH AND BLOOD!

    FANGO Flashback: “LAND OF THE DEAD”

    In a world where terms such as “zombie apocalypse” and “Z-Day” rest comfortably within the mainstream vernacular, it’s nearly impossible to imagine a time when the shambling, biting corpses that we know and love/loathe weren’t a common presence in the horror landscape. Though the earliest depictions of zombies in cinema can be traced back to 1932’s WHITE ZOMBIE, many place the birth of the modern zombie in the 1968 black-and-white classic NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, and consider the film’s director, George A. Romero, the godfather of the zombie subgenre.

    “THE UNWANTED” (DVD Review)

    Writer/director Bret Wood’s moody microbudget melodrama THE UNWANTED (out now on Blu-ray from Kino-Lorber) has been met with general critical indifference since its release. Too glacial in its pacing, too light on hard sex and violence for many horror movie hounds and too modestly financed to thrill those looking for a glossy arthouse piece, THE UNWANTED is certainly an anomaly and doesn’t fit comfortably anywhere, really. That, of course, is part of its fascination; it’s a film that goes against convention and has a strange power that is hard to shake.
