  • “BATES MOTEL: Season 3, Episode 6” (TV Review)

    ,,

    With the track record from the first and second season of BATES MOTEL, there was an aura of cautious optimism when this writer decided to cover the third season. But luckily, that faith has payed off in a big way, as BATES’ sixth episode this season is a full-on home run for the series, and introduced a milestone into the show’s familiar lore. And as Norman and Norma drifted apart further than ever before, Norman and “Mother” finally came together, and it offered one of the most surreal and satisfying scenes in the series’ history.

  • Director Jack Sholder remembers “THE HIDDEN,” playing Chicago this weekend

    ,,

    Movies like ALONE IN THE DARK and A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2: FREDDY’S REVENGE have secured eclectic director Jack Sholder a permanent position in many a genre fan’s horror hall of fame. But, Sholder, whose less recognizable yet enjoyable credits include WISHMASTER 2: EVIL NEVER DIES, ARACHNID and the killer-shark telemovie 12 DAYS OF TERROR, is especially and justifiably proud of his work on 1987’s THE HIDDEN, New Line Cinema’s popular science fiction/action/horror hybrid.

  • “THE WALKING DECEASED” Actor Dave Sheridan Wants To Know: Have You Seen This Zombie?

    ,

    Fans of horror comedy should be familiar with SCARY MOVIE and THE DEVIL’S REJECTS star Dave Sheridan, who was most recently seen in the zombie culture parody THE WALKING DECEASED (check FANGO’s review here.) As such, Sheridan has found himself going deeper and deeper into the world of horror, hitting the convention scene while gearing up for his directorial debut in the genre. And while THE WALKING DECEASED let Sheridan lay some hurt on the undead, one zombie in particular was able to get some payback, according to a video recently released by Sheridan from his appearance at Dallas’ Walker Stalker convention.

  • “CARRIE” (2002) / “THE RAGE: CARRIE 2” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    There’s no doubting that Brian De Palma’s CARRIE, the 1976 inaugural adaptation of Stephen King, is a classic of the horror genre. It’s classy, unsettling and genuinely scary, compounded with De Palma’s stylish vision and King’s distinct narrative voice. Yet in the years since, the various attempts to remake and recapture that eerie essence has proven difficult, and there’s no better example of that than the CARRIE TV-remake as well as Katt Shea’s THE RAGE: CARRIE 2. And with Scream Factory’s double feature Blu-ray, CARRIE completists can finally have these misbegotten fright flicks in high definition.

  • Flesh and Blood: “A VIRGIN AMONG THE LIVING DEAD” (NSFW)

    ,,

    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!

  • “THE BABADOOK” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    To some, including this writer, THE BABADOOK was one of the genuine masterpieces of macabre cinema last year, providing a near perfect balance of psychological horror and creature feature. To others, THE BABADOOK was a victim of a loudly whirring hype machine, offering a horror tale whose straightforward scares were disappointing to a fault. In that way, THE BABADOOK has posited itself as a film that there’s very little middle ground towards, and with the film now on Blu-ray from Scream Factory, the rest of the world at large will get a chance to experience THE BABADOOK for themselves, as well as get an insight on how THE BABADOOK came to be.
