  • Q&A: Filmmaker Isaac Ezban talks “THE SIMILARS”

    ,

    In today’s media landscape, far too many projects rely on the importance of nostalgia within their audience. Yet for some projects, nostalgia itself can be the building blocks of something truly fantastic, such in the case of Isaac Ezban’s THE SIMILARS. Pulling from classic sci-fi/horror hybrids of the ‘60s, especially THE TWILIGHT ZONE, Ezban is able to fully realize an original vision that feels respectful to its inspirations while firing on all cylinders in its own right. With the film now on VOD, FANGORIA caught up with Ezban to talk about THE SIMILARS, independent filmmaking, and his next film, PARALLEL…

  • Exclusive Details, Trailer: Vestron Video brings Bob Balaban’s “PARENTS” to Blu-ray!

    ,

    Last year, this writer had the pleasure of speaking to actor/filmmaker Bob Balaban about his storied career, including several unsung contributions to the horror genre (including MY BOYFRIEND’S BACK and the pilot for TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE). But out of his demented directorial efforts, Balaban is perhaps best known for PARENTS, a horror comedy that paints the nuclear family as crazed cannibals while sporting memorably macabre performances from Randy Quaid and Mary Beth Hurt. Now, with the film sadly absent from the world of high-definition, PARENTS is looking to get the Blu-ray treatment from none other than the recently revived Vestron Video label, and FANGORIA has the first details on the release below!

  • Q&A: Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues talk “DON’T BREATHE”

    ,,

    Having only directed a handful of short films at the time, it was surprise to horror fans that rookie director Fede Alvarez was given the shot at directing 2013’s EVIL DEAD reboot. What Alvarez proved with that film, though, was how capable he was as a filmmaker, giving fans a brutal and unflinching film that was not only entertaining as hell, but in this writer’s opinion, worthy of being placed right alongside the original film.

  • Exclusive Clip: Vestron Video’s “C.H.U.D. II: BUD THE CHUD” Blu-ray!

    ,

    While mostly a sequel in name only, C.H.U.D. II: BUD THE CHUD is definitely a cult film in the truest sense of the label. Trading in the monster movie conspiracy thriller of the first film for old fashioned splatstick, C.H.U.D. II may not be the best follow-up in horror history, but it’s certainly a lot of fun in its own right and carries a dedicated audience from its time as a ‘90s late night cable staple. Now, C.H.U.D. II is being unleashed on Vestron Video, and FANGORIA is ringing in the occasion with a clip from it’s brand new Blu-ray, which you can see below!

  • Q&A: Casper Kelly and Dave Willis talk “YOUR PRETTY FACE IS GOING TO HELL”

    ,,

    While there are several high-profile horror comedies currently turning heads on the small screen, few go as deep into the demented and disgusting as YOUR PRETTY FACE IS GOING TO HELL. With Adult Swim’s brand of surreal and crude humor injected into a sitcom about office politics in Hell, PRETTY FACE goes to some hilariously putrid places in its third season, thanks to the likes of series co-creators Chris “Casper” Kelly and Dave Willis. With season three now in progress, so far offering cringe-worthy takes on aliens, pregnancy, and workplace videos, FANGORIA caught up with Kelly and Willis about what macabre madness audiences should expect going forward…

  • Q&A: Filmmaker Benjamin Moody talks “LAST GIRL STANDING”

    ,

    For most filmmakers, the easiest way to subvert the expectations of horror fans is to go meta. Yet for a lot of those films, that decision can sometimes land the film in parody or, perhaps worse, condescension, with little respect being paid to the material that is being manipulated. Yet with Benjamin Moody’s LAST GIRL STANDING, the horror is just as important as flipping the script on the slasher genre. With the film having played at many esteemed festivals and conventions, including Frightfest, NYC Horror Film Festival, and Texas Frightmare Weekend, LAST GIRL STANDING has been gaining momentum and praise as a clever, much-needed kick-in-the-pants for slasher fans, and now that the film has arrived on VOD and DVD from MPI, FANGORIA spoke with the film’s director, Benjamin Moody, about creating palpable drama out of petrifying dread…

  • Q&A: Actor Michael Pare on “THE SHELTER”

    ,

    For a film like THE SHELTER, a storyteller needs a versatile actor who can bring a genuinely sympathetic side out of a rather despicable anti-hero. Leave it to the one and only Michael Pare to do the job, with the cult film icon offering an incredible performance as a man trapped in a hell of his own creation. With the film now available on VOD, FANGORIA spoke to Pare about inhabiting THE SHELTER, working with John Fallon, and his supporting role in the upcoming fright film ABATTOIR…

  • Q&A: Filmmakers Joshua Zeman and Rachel Mills talk “THE KILLING SEASON”

    ,

    For one reason or another, the worldwide fascination with true crime stories and serial killers is nearing an all-time high in current pop culture. From groundbreaking podcasts to shocking docuseries, these opportunities to dig deeper into the world of real-life monsters (as well as the social circumstances that allow them to thrive) grant us a better understanding of the human mind, and what can be done, whether nationally or locally, to protect ourselves and others from these frightening fates. With A&E’s compelling new documentary series THE KILLING SEASON, filmmakers Joshua Zeman and Rachel Mills (of CROPSEY and KILLER LEGENDS fame) go into the harrowing story of the Long Island Serial Killer, and unveil a bigger picture on modern day serial killers that one might not find on the local news. With the series having premiered in the last week, FANGORIA caught up with Zeman and Mills to talk about their journey into THE KILLING SEASON.
