    Event Report: NYC Screening of “POKER NIGHT” with Ron Perlman Q&A!

    Truth be told, there’s nothing quite like FANGORIA’s free New York City screenings. Usually held within intimate art house venues, such as the Cinema Village on East 12th Street, there’s an inimitable sense of excitement that flows through the theaters as audiences prepare themselves for what horrors await. And while FANGORIA has brought stellar guests in previous NYC screenings, there was a heightened nature to this screening of Greg Francis’ POKER NIGHT, as it’s biggest star, genre vet Ron Perlman, would be making a live appearance as well as a post-show Q&A.

    Q&A: Director Jeremy Berg on “THE DEVICE”

    As many of those familiar with the process knows, independent filmmaking is much like pulling off a magic trick in broad daylight. Without the resources and time suited to your liking, you often turn to your own resourcefulness and imagination to wow the audience.  And the more ambitious your trick may be, the more you’re going to have to fight to create something truly unique. And for director Jeremy Berg, helmer of the alien abduction flick THE DEVICE, there’s few tricks as ambitious as pulling off a convincing extraterrestrial thriller on shoestrings. In a recent chat with FANGORIA, Berg spoke about pulling off THE DEVICE, building backstory and what lies next for the versatile filmmaker…

    Drafthouse Acquires Marling/Steinfeld-led Thriller “THE KEEPING ROOM”

    Time and time again, the connection between the western and horror genres becomes more apparent by every succeeding entry. Westerns, which often reflect a savage times and dangerous environments, have delved into the bloodier and gruesome realities of the genre as time has gone on under the eyes of revisionist directors. Likewise, horror has found many subgenres flourish when mixed with western tropes, including vampire films (NEAR DARK), creature features (THE BURROWERS) and even cannibals (RAVENOUS). But with 2015 already offering one western from a tried-and-true horror voice (Ti West’s IN THE VALLEY OF VIOLENCE), Drafthouse Films is raising the bar, announcing this morning that they acquired the claustrophobic Civil War thriller THE KEEPING ROOM.

    Event Report: “SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT” on 35mm at Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers!

    As any fervent filmgoer can tell you, there’s nothing quite like seeing a film at the Alamo Drafthouse, a theater chain and company devoted to bringing fans the most fun cinematic experience conceivable. From their full food and drink selection to their preservation of 35mm screenings to their strict “no talking” policy, it’s a well-deserved theatrical treat to check out a film, new or old, at a Drafthouse location. So when this writer was offered the chance to host their Yonkers screening of Charles E. Selliers, Jr.’s SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT, I leapt at the opportunity to help usher in this nasty holiday horror to fright fans.

    Ashley Thorpe’s “BORLEY RECTORY” Set To Wrap Campaign

    UK animator and veteran FANGORIA contributor Ashley Thorpe has been steamrolling his Indiegogo campaign to raise the scratch to bring his magnum opus, THE BORLEY RECTORY, to life. With the kindness of strangers as well as fellow UK ghost story enthusiasts Clive Barker, Axelle Carolyn, Neil Marshall, Mick Garris and Neil Gaiman, he’s almost there. And though the campaign closes on December 15th, he’s still looking for a few more shekels to see the flick through.

    Exodus: “BLOOD IN, BLOOD OUT” (Album Review)

    The first thing that comes to mind when listening to the opening track of Exodus’s new album, BLOOD IN, BLOOD OUT, is, that unlike several of the band’s peers, age has in no way mellowed the band in the slightest. “Black 13” is a crushing example of thrash metal done to perfection, as if the band were frozen in a block of ice in 1987 and then released to terrorize the populace (like Christopher Lee’s Dracula in the beginning of Hammer’s 1968 epic DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE).

    Farewell, from Managing Editor Samuel Zimmerman

    Maybe it wasn’t my first job, but FANGORIA was my First Job. In 2009, I found luck interning for an institution, under the guidance of Tony Timpone and Michael Gingold, no less. Later, I lucked out again. Tony, Michael and owner Tom DeFeo gave me a real shot by bringing me on board full time. Properly educated in, and particularly ravenous for, film and film history, though I was and may be, I was also still a kid with a developing style and soon, a Slaughtered Lamb tattoo.
