  • First Details, Poster: Jessica Cameron’s Psychothriller “AN ENDING”

    ,

    If you’re a tried-and-true horror fan, you likely know the name of Jessica Cameron. Whether it’s from her turns in CAMEL SPIDERS and SILENT NIGHT to her directorial efforts TRUTH OR DARE and MANIA or her persistent presence at horror conventions and festivals worldwide, Cameron has made a name for herself in the D.I.Y. horror community, even going as far as to be featured on FANGORIA’s SPLAT CHAT. Yet while audiences await for TRUTH OR DARE and MANIA’s general release, Cameron is already hard at work on her newly-announced film, AN ENDING!

  • “BATES MOTEL: Season 4, Episode 4” (TV Review)

    ,,

    The fourth episode of BATES MOTEL opens with Norman recounting all of the people that “mother” has killed while the voice of his dead father telling him that Norma killed him is running in his head. When Norman refuses his meds, the nurse tells him that if he doesn’t take them, he will be locked into his room until a resident nurse comes to see him. While the rules of this institution remain a bit murky, the logic here remains problematic, but that’s far from Norman’s biggest problem this week.

  • Found Footage… For Real: Vintage “EVIL DEAD” Behind-The-Scenes Footage!

    ,,

    It might be a cliche, but there’s something magical about homemade horror filmmaking. Personally speaking, I remember running around a campground for a Video 101 assignment, camcorder in tow, filming a faux trailer for a serial killer thriller with nothing but whoever and whatever I could assemble on a Friday night in the middle of winter. And while that stupid, stupid movie has been lost in time, I’ll never forget how exhilarating and fun the process was, and how much that memory still stands out nearly seven years later.

  • Stephen King’s “CELL” joins “31” at Saban Films

    ,

    Over the past year, the distribution game has changed rather radically in the independent film world. While studios devote more and more resources to blockbusters and tentpole films, smaller distributors with more radical release strategies have found solid footing by betting on the strength of their output. Entities such as STX and A24 have established their reputation with releases such as THE WITCH, THE GIFT and GREEN ROOM, and now, Saban Films looks to join them with a growing genre slate that includes Rob Zombie’s 31 and now, as per The Hollywood Reporter, Tod William’s adaptation of Stephen King’s CELL.

  • “THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS” (Film Review)

    ,,

    As much sense as it may make to a marketing executive or producer, having the name of a horror icon attached to your film is actually somewhat of a risky proposition. By associating a film with someone who is known and beloved by genre films, expectations will understandably be raised, which could work as a double-edged sword if those standards are not met. And in the case of Nick Simon’s THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS, having that attachment be the final credit in the prolific career of Wes Craven (who served as executive producer) is an even larger shadow to shine through in the eyes of horror enthusiasts.

  • On Set: Mickey Keating’s Psychological Creepfest “DARLING”

    ,,,

    Walking toward the Harlem townhouse serving as the key location of DARLING, your faithful Fango correspondent spots a couple of cops hanging around the front steps. It seems odd that such a small independent shoot would need this kind of security—and then it turns out that the uniformed lawmen are actually executive producer Larry Fessenden and his regular actor John Speredakos, making cameos in the movie.

  • Stream to Scream: “HE NEVER DIED”

    ,,

    There’s something effortlessly refreshing about films that confidently reside in their own universe. By offering characters with established history, rapport, and relationships, watching their stories unfold has an immersive quality that more grounded, gritty fare just cannot capture. Therefore, when something like HE NEVER DIED comes around and offers up a supernatural horror comedy that lives somewhere between JOHN WICK and TWIN PEAKS, it’s all the more of a twisted treat than your standard terror titles.
