  • “ALL HALLOWS’ EVE 2” (Film Review)

    ,,

    Whether you’re a fan or completely unaware of the 2013 indie horror anthology ALL HALLOWS’ EVE, there’s a good chance you’ll find it’s sequel to be a frustrating experience. On one hand, fans of the first film might be disappointed that the structure and face of the first film- the bloodthirsty ‘Art the Clown’- is completely thrown away in favor of something completely different altogether. And on the other hand, the anthology film more or less plays exactly how it was produced: a collection of wholly disconnected horror shorts bought and assembled with no cohesion or mission statement. Though some of these shorts are well produced and executed in their own right, the overall ALL HALLOWS’ EVE 2 experience feels far from satisfying, especially when paired with a lazy and generic wrap-around segment.

  • For Your Consideration: The 2016 Chainsaw Award Nominees for Best TV Actress

    ,

    With voting season now open on the FANGORIA Chainsaw Awards, fans are putting their minds at work to select their favorites out of every potential nominee. When it came to the Best TV Actress category, the competition was fierce and many fantastic performers didn’t quite make the cut, including FROM DUSK TILL DAWN’s Eiza Gonzalez, THE WALKING DEAD’s Alexandra Breckenridge, iZOMBIE’s Rose McIver, SCREAM’s Willa Fitzgerald and SOUTH OF HELL’s Mena Suvari. Alas, only five performances could garner nominations in the category’s sophomore year, with FANGORIA going with the strongest of the strong.

  • “AXE/KIDNAPPED COED” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,,

    Here’s a sterling example of how a film’s history can be as fascinating, or more so, than the movie itself. Severin Films’ restorations of Frederick R. Friedel’s drive-in features AXE and KIDNAPPED COED are noteworthy enough, but the supplemental wealth on the Blu-ray places this one among the past year’s very best disc releases.

  • For Your Consideration: The 2016 Chainsaw Award Nominees for Best Foreign Language Film!

    ,,

    With voting season now open on the FANGORIA Chainsaw Awards, fans are putting their minds at work to select their favorites out of every potential nominee. When it came to the Best Foreign Language Film category, there was some argument as to what technically counted for the category, eventually disqualifying technically-released-in-2015 film ANGST (due to it’s 1983 production) and WHITE DOG. Meanwhile, The Mo Brothers’ KILLERS and the anthology film MEXICO BARBARO were also in contention, but eventually were bumped out by its creepier competition. And after some careful consideration, FANGO found five fright flicks worthy of taking home the Gold Chainsaw.

Now, with Harron wrapping up her work on the all-female filmmaker horror anthology XX (alongside Jennifer Lynch, Karyn Kusama and Jovanka Vuckovic) and the AMERICAN PSYCHO musical splattering onto Broadway soon, good news hit this morning regarding the film’s writer-director duo as Harron and her PSYCHO scribe Guinevere Turner will be reuniting for a film based on the Manson Family murders.
