    Zombie Activists Attack in First Scene from BBC’s “IN THE FLESH” Season Two

    BBC America’s IN THE FLESH has, alongside French series THE RETURNED, garnered acclaim for being one of the more novel pieces of undead fiction in the current, oversaturated climate. The series’ first season took an interesting look at a post-zombie apocalypse in which those transformed were being rehabilitated and assimilating back into society, with plenty of social commentary-informed bumps along the way. Season Two premieres this month and opens with an attack by the Undead Liberation Army and marks the first instance in which I ever took something like the term “zombie terrorists” seriously.

    Exclusive Texas Frightmare Q&A: Robert Patrick

    Genre-friendly actors are far too often typecast, capitalizing on their animated brand of villainy as to keep work as steady as possible. Once a performer breaks out of such however, there’s a certain freedom in the limited roles that don’t inhibit creativity and ambition.

    “BLOOD GLACIER” (Movie Review)

    You’d have to search far and wide for a genre filmmaker not influenced by John Carpenter, and more specifically THE THING. The legendary filmmaker’s arctic account of an assimilating, parasitic lifeform is a masterpiece of paranoia and puppetry, deftly blending looming atmosphere and existential angst with holy shit creature FX. Post-THE THING, the ensuing struggle between filmmaking and fandom, which is arguably a hurdle for horror filmmakers more than any other type, often leaves little else besides the impact and homage. A pleasant surprise then, that Austrian director Marvin Kren’s similarly snowbound creature feature BLOOD GLACIER isn’t just the sum of its favorite films.

    EXCL Images: Snowbound Creature Feature, “BLOOD GLACIER”

    Out this Friday on VOD and in select theaters via IFC Midnight is Marvin Kren’s snowbound creature feature, BLOOD GLACIER (aka The Station). Clearly in the vein of the Antarctic-set John Carpenter classic THE THING, BLOOD GLACIER manages to be more than the sum of its influence, and ends up altogether an atmospheric, pulpy and very fun mash of practical, hybrid animal monsters. Fango has two exclusive images to share from the film, in anticipation of its debut.
