  • Bad Robot & Don Coscarelli team for 4K “PHANTASM” Restoration!

    ,

    Earlier this year, news broke out of Texas Frightmare Weekend that Don Coscarelli was “retiring” his personal 35mm print of his fright favorite PHANTASM, a film whose prints have become decidedly difficult to find in its native format. For some, the move came as an unfortunate turn, considering that the 35mm theatrical experience is still one embraced by a majority of horror hounds, while rumors began to swell that the print’s retirement had something to do- promotional or otherwise- with the upcoming release of PHANTASM V: RAVAGER. Yet no one could have predicted the truth behind the matter, revealed this weekend at Harry Knowles’ Butt-Numb-A-Thon, as J.J. Abrams and his production company, Bad Robot, have teamed with Don Coscarelli on a 4K restoration of PHANTASM!

  • Stream to Scream: “LAST SHIFT”

    ,,

    While the old saying goes “never judge a book by its cover,” the same ideology can sometimes be difficult to apply to films with underwhelming, misrepresenting or flat-out terrible key art. In the age of streaming platforms, bad key art has almost become the standard in order to hook the widest viewership possible, even if it repels the film’s core audience. Yet on the flip side of bad streaming key art, they do present a certain benefit for these films by lowering expectations for the audience which, when paired with a truly fantastic film like Anthony DiBlasi’s LAST SHIFT, can make a surprising experience all the more unpredictable and worthwhile.

  • Exclusive Premiere: The Macabre Motion Poster for “THE FOREST”!

    ,

    While 2015 was a bit of a disappointment in terms of the genre, one cannot deny that 2016 aims to rectify that in a big way. In fact, not only does 2016 look to offer up stronger scares, but they will do so rather immediately as January 8th brings THE FOREST, Jason Zada’s terrifying ghost story that surrounds the real life Aokigahara Forest, a place morbidly renowned as a real life suicide forest in Japan. And while the film is still a little less than a month away, FANGORIA is excited to reveal the first motion poster from the fright flick, which you can check out below!

  • FANGO Flashback: “PSYCHO III”

    ,

    Much like snowflakes and fingerprints, you’ll never find two horror fans with the same opinions about the PSYCHO sequels. Perhaps among the most divisive franchises in horror history, it’s difficult to find a critical consensus on the later tales of Norman Bates, whether it be Richard Franklin’s PSYCHO II, Mick Garris’ PSYCHO IV, the variations of BATES MOTEL or Anthony Perkins’ PSYCHO III. And while this writer has never been a fan of PSYCHO III, especially considering my love for PSYCHO and PSYCHO II, the time felt right to give PSYCHO III another shot, hoping to eschew the PSYCHO legacy and take it as a slasher in its own right.
