  • “MANSON FAMILY VACATION” (Movie Review)

    ,,

    Written and directed by J. Davis and currently available on Netflix, MANSON FAMILY VACATION explores the multifaceted idea of family, as two brothers attempt to reconnect and forgive the past through radical understanding. The film also explores the semiotics of Charles Manson—the idea of an infamous clan of outcasts—and the myth of the changeling child. Merging these concepts seamlessly, MANSON FAMILY VACATION penetrates the heart and tells its audience, in a dark and humorous way, that it understands.

  • NYCC ’15 Video Q&A: Rob Kazinsky talks “LOOKINGLASS”

    ,

    Originally titled THE FRANKENSTEIN CODE, the upcoming FOX sci-fi/crime series LOOKINGLASS has dropped the daunting weight of Mary Shelley’s shadow upon their work for something a bit more esoteric. However, a bit of mystery would be fitting for LOOKINGLASS, a series that looks to be just as much in the vein of a kick-ass procedural as it does creepy social commentary ala BLACK MIRROR. And with the show’s debut still a ways away, FANGORIA was able to get some words out of star and TRUE BLOOD veteran Rob Kazinsky regarding his experiences within LOOKINGLASS…

  • Deaditorial: Streaming Services are Killing Horror (And What They Can Do To Save It)

    ,,,

    It’s a bit hard to imagine, but I’ve been a paying Netflix subscriber for over ten years now. At first, what appealed to me wasn’t the convenience of never going to the local video store, which was a ritual I cherished then and miss dearly now, but rather the impossibly huge selection. As much as Blockbuster or Merchant Square Video could have the coolest new releases, the interesting video fare and a nice chunk of old & obscure films, they didn’t quite have everything I had been recommended via friend’s older brothers and society’s younger brother, the internet. And so I partook in the 3-at-a-time disc service to rent films such as MEET THE FEEBLES, KING OF THE ANTS and UHF, plus many various foreign, art and shlock films I couldn’t find elsewhere.

  • Event Report: “DRACULA” (1931) at the Alamo Drafthouse in Yonkers, NY!

    ,,

    There’s just something truly, unarguably awesome about revisiting the classic Universal Monsters on the big screen. Beyond being able to appreciate these fright favorites in a theatrical setting, there’s also a certain communal magic about watching these golden age genre films with a room filled with like-minded individuals. And thanks to the Alamo Drafthouse in Yonkers, NY, horror hounds had the chance to share that experience in front of one of the most iconic Universal Monster movies: Tod Browning’s DRACULA!

  • NYCC ’15 Video Q&A: Jill Marie Jones talks “ASH VS. EVIL DEAD”; Second Season Confirmed!

    ,

    When you hear a title like ASH VS. EVIL DEAD, any fright fan can tell you that fighting deadites can get too messy for one man (or several, for that matter). Hell, it’s even a given that the highly anticipated Starz series will feature Deadite-fighters who don’t even have the benefit of the one-armed lothario on their side. In fact, one of the first people fans will see battle the EVIL DEAD is Amanda Fisher, a badass detective who learns first hand just how dangerous the deadites can be. Luckily, Starz enlisted in the versatile and talented Jill Marie Jones to bring Fisher to life, and at the 2015 New York Comic Con, FANGORIA caught up with Jones to talk ASH VS. EVIL DEAD…

  • “ARMY OF DARKNESS: COLLECTOR’S EDITION” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    Fans of the EVIL DEAD franchise are among the most ardent collectors in the landscape of horror home media. Considering the various impressive DVD sets (including the lauded “Book of the Dead” packaging), the Blu-ray sets including two different editions of EVIL DEAD II and the excellent special features that come with each release, EVIL DEAD fans have spent a lot of money and raised a bar of expectations over the years. So when Scream Factory announced that they would be releasing a Collector’s Edition set of ARMY OF DARKNESS on Blu-ray right on time for the premiere of ASH VS. EVIL DEAD, many EVIL DEAD fans were skeptical about what the specialty distributor could offer outside the already impressive, studio-released Screwhead Edition Blu from years back. As it turns out, the answer is a hell of a lot, with Scream Factory offering not only the definitive home media release for the film but one that puts the Screwhead Edition to shame.
