  • FANGO Flashback: “THE ENTITY”

    ,,

    In the grand scheme of haunting films, there is nothing quite like THE ENTITY. While it’s aesthetics might have been replicated in the past (particularly, the INSIDIOUS films appear to be particularly inspired by THE ENTITY), no other film comparably tackles such subject matter in a stylized, mainstream execution, let alone in a manner that feels visceral and terrifying.

And, of course, this category would be looking very differently had IT FOLLOWS remained on its intended limited release schedule earlier in 2015.
