  • AJ Briones’ Acclaimed Horror Short “THE SMILING MAN” Has Arrived!

    ,

    Last year, FANGORIA reported on one of our favorite horror short films in recent memory, AJ Briones’ THE SMILING MAN, which packed more petrifying punch in seven short minutes than most horror films can in 90 minutes. And while the film has made the festival rounds (and, in fact, was even selected in the long-delayed FIOFF), Briones and Co. has finally unleashed the macabre short film on the world at large! Be sure to check out the fright flick in it’s entirety below, and you can follow Briones’ future work at the film’s official Facebook Page!

    ,

    THE ONES BELOW invites us into a duplex where the lives of two beautiful couples, both expecting their first child, become intertwined—first, sweetly, and then, after a tragic turn of events, horrifically, as their greatest joy transmogrifies into a Polanski-esque, Lynch-ian nightmare. FANGORIA recently had the pleasure of discussing the origins and implications of this psychological thriller with writer/director David Farr…

  • Grindhouse Releasing Unleashes “CAT IN THE BRAIN” on Blu-ray this Summer!

    ,

    If you ask a dozen horror fans about which splattery option from Lucio Fulci’s ouevre was their favorite, you would probably receive twelve different answers. Luckily, with boutique Blu-ray labels doing their due diligence, even the most obscure and shocking Fulci flicks have found their way to a whole new generation of horror heads. Now, Grindhouse Releasing- who previously did right by the filmmaker with their astounding release of THE BEYOND- is bringing one of Fulci’s bloodiest, most insane terror titles to Blu-ray: 1990’s CAT IN THE BRAIN!

  • NY/NJ! Win A Mondo LP at Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers “PET SEMATARY” Screening Next Week!

    ,

    When it comes to Stephen King adaptations, very few resonate with as much creepy purpose as PET SEMATARY, Mary Lambert’s terrifying take on grief, loss, resurrection and consequence. But as much as the film can inspire goosebumps with the likes of Undead Gage or Zelda, the film is equally notable for its sinister soundtrack. Of course, The Ramones’ title track from the film broke big in a way that few horror anthems ever have, but Elliot Goldenthal’s score adds that extra taste of Southern Gothic terror to the proceedings as well. Luckily for NY/NJ horrorheads, Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers is not only offering the chance to catch PET SEMATARY on the big screen next week, but one luckily attendee will be going home with Mondo’s PET SEMATARY vinyl LP!

  • Nicolas Winding Refn Announces ‘Remake Trilogy’ with Vincent Price, Giallo Classics!

    ,

    For this writer, one of the most highly anticipated horror offerings of 2016 is Nicolas Winding Refn’s THE NEON DEMON, which has already polarized audiences at the typically genre-unfriendly Cannes Film Festival. Hitting theaters next month, it will be Refn’s first tried-and-true entry into the horror genre, even if his filmography has long touched upon the themes and atmosphere of horror, but with the news breaking last week, it’s sure to not be his last. That’s because- in addition to his previously announced MANIAC COP remake- Refn has added two more horror classics to his slate of upcoming remakes on which the demented Danish filmmaker will serve as executive producer, according to Deadline.

  • “BATES MOTEL: Season 4, Episode 10” (TV Review)

    ,,

    Despite Norma looking very much deceased in last week’s episode, it was still debateable whether or not she was truly dead, possibly due to the fact that it is almost unheard of for one of the two leads to be killed off at this point in the game. With Norman’s mind increasingly diluted by psychosis, the show is always in the air as to what is real and what is not, and of course, there is also the case for characters having been brought back from the “dead” before, such as with Bradley Martin. Alas, that was not the case for poor Norma Bates.

  • FANGO Flashback: “PRISON”

    ,,

    For longtime readers of FANGORIA.com, this writer’s affection for the work of Renny Harlin has been well-documented. With genuinely awesome cinematic offerings such as MINDHUNTERS, DEEP BLUE SEA, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET PART IV, THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT, DIE HARD 2 and CLIFFHANGER under his belt, few directors can capture the spirit of popcorn entertainment better than Harlin. Even his cinematic missteps- FORD FAIRLANE, DEVIL’S PASS and EXORCIST: THE BEGINNING- are perhaps hobbled by their own ambition, and the fact that they still are fairly entertaining in their own right is a testament to Harlin’s work as a filmmaker. Yet unfortunately, too few horror hounds have seen one of Harlin’s legitimately best terror titles: the 1988 haunting thriller PRISON.
