    ,,

    TRIBESMEN/VIDEO NIGHT author Adam Cesare saw his raucous, sometimes hilarious, frequently unsettling haunted-arcade novella ZERO LIVES REMAINING hit paperback and e-book last week. So it seemed an appropriate occasion to hit Cesare up for a list of vintage video games that influenced this literary mayhem.

  • Stream to Scream: “WHISPERS BEHIND THE WALL”

    ,,

    Listed as one of FANGO’s top films we’d hope you’d see in 2016, this writer was pleasantly surprised by the addition of Grzegorz Muskala’s WHISPERS BEHIND THE WALL to Hulu this week. Considering the film’s provocative erotic subject matter and domestic thriller elements, the fact that the film is deservedly making it’s way to U.S. audiences is a testament to indie distributors that are at least making some effort to bring titles without foreign stars or edge-of-your-seat action stateside. And, for admittedly selfish reasons, it will be good to see WHISPERS BEHIND THE WALL’s cult audience grow, as its increased accessibility will finally allow this writer to share beyond basic spoiler-free discussions about this engaging psychodrama with other fright fans.

  • “THE X-FILES: Season 10, Episode 4” (TV Review)

    ,,

    After putting together an out-and-out contemporary classic with “Scully and Mulder meet the Were-Monster,” one might have imagined that the next installment of THE X-FILES would have a tough time reaching that high bar. Yet to be perfectly honest, one could assume that no one expected “Home Again” to be a busy, unfocused and frankly disappointing chapter of THE X-FILES revival. After all, Glen Morgan’s writing and direction on the series has frequently been stellar, but when THE X-FILES announced its return would be contained to a six-episode event series, the fact that one episode missed the mark so prominently shows that the little time fans have with Scully and Mulder again feels more valuable than it once was.

  • Eerie Episodes: “MASTERS OF HORROR: Pick Me Up”

    ,,

    To be perfectly honest, it’s shocking that “Pick Me Up”- in concept as well as in present execution- never found itself previously adapted in the horror genre. Considering both of the urban legends it’s based off, each of which have been individually adapted in projects such as THE HITCHER and BREAKDOWN, as well as the post-SCREAM slasher boom in the ‘90s, a project like “Pick Me Up” would seem to be a no-brainer, at the very least on paper. Nevertheless, it wasn’t until MASTERS OF HORROR came along that the project specifically took life, allowing the concept to run wild even if its within the constraint of a limited budget and TV schedule.

  • FANGO Flashback: “SHOCKER”

    ,,

    One of the things this writer loves so very much about Wes Craven’s filmography is that, when left to his own devices, Craven was not afraid to go absolutely crazy with his work. In that sense, several of Craven’s films throw caution to the wind as irreverent humor, dream logic and bloody horror run wild in an orgy of cinematic madness, such as THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS, NEW NIGHTMARE and SHOCKER. And in terms of the latter, Wes Craven uses his unique and twisted sensibilities to try to create a new horror icon, notedly as a response to the franchise from which he was exiled from, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET.
