  • “ULTIMATE NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD: GENESIS” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    Marvel and DC have paved the way for comic companies to release simultaneous first issues of comics that are centered on a universal event. Whether it’s the monumental event of DC’s New 52 that followed the Infinite Crisis storyline a few years ago or just Marvel wanting unite all their characters under one timeline later this fall, it’s become fairly common to see multiple characters and story arcs starting over all at once. But what happens when a brand new, interconnected universe is launched by ten different comics with ten different stories? Double Take’s newest work ULTIMATE NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD: GENESIS is what happens.

  • Q&A: Eli Roth on Venturing Into “THE GREEN INFERNO,” Part Two

    ,,,

    When Eli Roth set out to make his cannibal shocker THE GREEN INFERNO (in theaters this Friday), he didn’t do it in the safety of a studio setting; he took his cast and crew into the wilds of the Peruvian jungle (and explained his reasons in part one of this interview). It’s certainly an ambitious and, some might say, insane production model to follow, yet one that lends an almost indescribable sense of danger to the final movie.

    ,,,

    If you’re a fan of ’80s exploitation cinema (and who among us isn’t?), you’re at least familiar with and very likely a fan of the output of Cannon Films.

  • FANGO Flashback: “THE HAUNTING” (1963)

    ,,

    While there had certainly been many haunting films previous to 1963, there were few that were ever taken as seriously as Robert Wise’s THE HAUNTING. There had been the William Castle fare that had done boffo at the box office but had been overshadowed by its over-the-top promotional tools. There had also been many haunted house films that never quite locked down the art of horror, delivering the sheet-laden ghosts and floating-by-string objects that have become associated with that classic era of fright fare. But THE HAUNTING was one of the first horror films to truly chill audiences to the bone, with an innovative and understated approach that played with what audiences may or may not have seen.

  • “HELLIONS” (TIFF Film Review)

    ,,

    After taking a few years off from horror following his impressive genre debut PONTYPOOL, Canadian cult filmmaker Bruce McDonald has dipped his toes back into the pool with HELLIONS. His latest effort isn’t quite as ambitious as the last one, but it is an endearingly creepy and creative little effort that showcases his technical prowess, even if the script doesn’t quite feel substantial enough for feature length treatment.
