  • “DON’T F*** IN THE WOODS” (Film Review)

    ,,

    For most horror fans, one of the biggest problems with contemporary horror is that it doesn’t quite capture the spirit of old-school fright films. Whether it’s CGI bloodshed and monsters, a lack of sexuality and violence, or the overly sleek and polished visuals, newer horror offerings just can’t emulate the gritty, D.I.Y., in-camera insanity of horror from yesteryear. However, if it’s bloodshed, nudity, and practical monsters that you’re missing, then there’s at least one horror film that you should seek out: Shawn Burkett’s aptly-titled DON’T FUCK IN THE WOODS.

  • Q&A: Filmmaker Oren Shai talks “THE FRONTIER”

    ,

    Suspense. Paranoia. Bloody Revenge.  Believe it or not, but horror and noir are surprisingly similar bedfellows, with both genres unafraid to explore the dark side of humanity. That is as true for classic noir as it is for contemporary pulp mysteries, such as Oren Shai’s THE FRONTIER. Starring THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL’s Jocelin Donahue, CRIMSON PEAK’s Jim Beaver, ROAD HOUSE’s Kelly Lynch, and YOU’RE NEXT’s AJ Bowen, THE FRONTIER is an intense, captivating neo-noir offering, and with the film about to hit select VOD outlets, FANGORIA spoke to Shai about how his haunting trip to THE FRONTIER came to be…

  • Brooklyn Horror Film Festival Review: “BEYOND THE GATES”

    ,,

    For horror fans who grew up in the ’80s and ’90s, chances are that they may have come across the weird world of VHS games. An alternative to tabletop roleplaying games as well as home console video games, VHS games would mix interactive storytelling with group-oriented challenges, akin to almost a more dramatic, produced version of a board game. With that in mind, it’s fairly insane that VHS games have not been utilized more often within the horror genre, and with Jackson Stewart’s BEYOND THE GATES, a horror-centric VHS game gets the JUMANJI treatment, except with way more blood and guts.

  • “STAN AGAINST EVIL” (TV Review)

    ,,

    For those of us who are equal parts horror and comedy fans, the name “Dana Gould” should be more familiar than not. In the latter category, Gould is best known as a comedian, writer, and performer whose hilarious nd esteemed stand-up career is as prolific as his writing on acclaimed series such as THE SIMPSONS. However, Gould has been making a name for himself in the former as well, appearing in SOUTHBOUND, TALES OF HALLOWEEN, and now, serving as the brains behind IFC’s new horror comedy series STAN AGAINST EVIL, a small town monster killer series that leans closer to the Monster Kid-friendly BUFFY than the balls-out explicitness of ASH VS. EVIL DEAD.

  • Q&A: Writer/Producer Nick Antosca talks “CHANNEL ZERO: CANDLE COVE”

    ,,

    For the first season of their new horror anthology series, CHANNEL ZERO, Syfy has assembled an incredible creative staff, including Max Landis (CHRONICLE), Craig William Macneill (THE BOY [2015]), and CANDLE COVE author Kris Straub. Yet Syfy’s ace-in-the-sleeve would be the series’ creator, Nick Antosca, who has gone from carving up the rude in HANNIBAL to creating a more atmospheric living nightmare with CHANNEL ZERO.
