  • “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.

  • Q&A: Actress Ashley Hinshaw on “THE PYRAMID” and “TRUE DETECTIVE”

    ,

    When you hear a title like THE PYRAMID, any horror fans mind will go to the usual suspects: mummies, scarabs and all sorts of ancient Egyptian curses. However, horror fans who checked out last fall’s THE PYRAMID were surprised by a whole different kind of horror, with an experience made even more visceral by a handful of strong performances. Among these performances was Ashley Hinshaw, who adds an emotional dimension and physical commitment to a role that in the hands of others could have been merely another screaming victim-to-be. FANGORIA recently caught up with Hinshaw and talking THE PYRAMID, her horror fandom and her participation in TRUE DETECTIVE’s second season…

  • Event Report: “MADMAN” Q&A at the Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers!

    ,,

    When it comes to revival screenings, there’s no place quite like the Alamo. Whether it be classics, cult classics or any and every oddity in between, the spirit of the Drafthouse experience brings together a unique and energetic audience like no other cinema can. So when the opportunity rose for this writer to host Vinegar Syndrome’s screening of the 1982 slasher classic MADMAN, complete with a Q&A with the cast and crew of the film, I immediately accepted and prepared myself for what would undoubtedly be one hell of a time.

  • “SALEM: Season 2, Episode 2” (TV Review)

    ,,

    For all the brutality and bloodshed on display, this writer sometimes forgets just how fantastical SALEM (and, to be honest, witchcraft in general) can be at times. While the show is very much steeped in horror, the higher concept magic and SFX always seem to immerse this writer deeper into the show’s universe in a way other horror shows seldom can. And doing so, it’s also a reminder that the heightened performances, dream logic and stylistic flourishes are all what make the show so entertaining, especially when matched with strong writing to boot.

  • Exclusive Blu-ray Clip: “THE WOMAN IN BLACK 2” Featurette Suggests Possible Trilogy Plans

    ,,

    The year in horror for 2015 got started with a scream earlier this year, as Hammer’s latest production, THE WOMAN IN BLACK 2: ANGEL OF DEATH, crept its way into theaters into the first weekend of January with a $15 million opening weekend. While the film wasn’t as big of a success as it’s Daniel Radcliffe-starring predecessor, but the film grossed over $35 million worldwide on a minuscule budget and, more importantly, scared audiences while doing so. And with THE WOMAN IN BLACK 2 coming to Blu-ray and DVD this week from 20th Century Fox, fans of the fright franchise will excited to hear that there may yet be another chapter in THE WOMAN IN BLACK’s story, as per this exclusive clip from the Blu-ray’s featurettes…
