  • “REGRESSION” (Movie Review)

    ,,

    “We’ve made absolutely no progress,” laments Ethan Hawke’s brooding detective Bruce Kenner about an hour into REGRESSION—and the audience may well be inclined to agree with him, presuming they can find this latest dumped-by-The-Weinstein-Company flick. But let’s regress back to the beginning of the story…

  • For Your Consideration: The 2016 Chainsaw Award Nominees for Best Actress!

    ,

    With voting season now open on the FANGORIA Chainsaw Awards, fans are putting their minds at work to select their favorites out of every potential nominee. When it came to Best Actress, this was definitely the most contested and debated category of this year’s awards, with many, many actresses in heavy consideration: SOME KIND OF HATE’s Grace Phipps, THE HARVEST’s Samantha Morton, THE GIFT’s Rebecca Hall, SPRING’s Nadia Hilker, FELT’s Amy Iverson and THE FINAL GIRLS’ Taissa Farmiga. That’s not even considering all the fantastic female performances from ensembles from which it was difficult to even nominate a leading actress, such as THE MIDNIGHT SWIM. Yet with the limitations of only five available nomination slots, FANGORIA had to highlight the lead female performances that stood out most among the crowd in 2016.

  • Deaditorial: Faith in Fright, or The Importance of Religion in the Horror Genre

    ,,

    It’s been over 40 years since it became a worldwide theatrical phenomenon, and still to this day, if you ask any person the scariest horror movie they’ve ever seen is, there’s a more than likely chance they’ll say THE EXORCIST. One of the main reasons this might be their answer is pretty simple: THE EXORCIST is a master class in horror filmmaking from all parties involved. However, one of the other main reasons you hear that title so frequently is that THE EXORCIST did something that JAWS, THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT and A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET did not: it made a monster out of The Devil.

  • “SOUTHBOUND” (Movie Review)

    ,,

    From the people behind the V/H/S movies comes a film that should satisfy even those who don’t usually respond to anthologies, as SOUTHBOUND consists less of separate segments than chapters in the same story—all of them scary, one of them a truly harrowing experience.

  • “THE PACK” (2016; Movie Review)

    ,,

    Even before they’re plunged into a cinematic nightmare that bridges the gap between John Carpenter’s original ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 and the 2011 Liam Neeson survival thriller THE GREY, the family we meet at the outset of Nick Robertson’s THE PACK has already got trouble aplenty.

  • For Your Consideration: The 2016 Chainsaw Award Nominations for Best TV Supporting Actor!

    ,

    With voting season now open on the FANGORIA Chainsaw Awards, fans are putting their minds at work to select their favorites out of every potential nominee. When it came to the Best TV Supporting Actor, this was one of the hardest categories to narrow down, with FROM DUSK TILL DAWN’s Zane Holtz, THE STRAIN’s Jonathan Hyde, BATES MOTEL’s Kenny Johnson and SCREAM QUEENS’ Glen Powell are very nearly making the cut. Even some of the nominated programs had some close calls for double contenders, with PENNY DREADFUL’s Timothy Dalton, HANNIBAL’s Raul Esparza, SALEM’s Jeremy Crutchley and AMERICAN HORROR STORY’s Denis O’Hare almost earning nods as well. Yet with only five slots for potential nominees, the last men standing for Best TV Supporting Actor are all incredibly deserving of the title.

    ,

    While the internet has many peaks and valleys when it comes to the world of horror, one of it’s best aspects is unearthing the oddities from horror history past.

And now, joining their ranks is something special from the days of TNT’s horror programming where MONSTERVISION reigned supreme: a vintage George A. Romero interview from TNT’s “The New Classics” presentation of CREEPSHOW!
