  • Stream to Scream: “KRISTY”

    ,,

    When a movie finds a comfortable spot on a studio shelf, more than likely it’s the sign of a troubled production. Whether it’s a hard film to sell, a tough script to crack or any number of legal issues, there’s rarely a film that comes out unscathed once it’s pulled from a set release date. But a negative preconception doesn’t necessarily equate to a low-quality film, and in the case of KRISTY (a/k/a SATANIC), which was unceremoniously debuted on the Lifetime Channel after nearly 2 years on the shelf, is living proof that not all rocky roads lead to disappointing places.

  • Hammer Horror to Receive The Documentary Treatment from Diabolique Films

    ,

    Before this writer became the Web Content Manager (and later, Web Editor & Managing Editor) for FANGORIA, I had the pleasure of cutting my teeth in the horror journalism world for a macabre magazine entitled Diabolique. Serving as their Web Editor from May to October of 2013, I definitely knew that there would be an interesting future for such a bold, classy publication upon my departure as there simply was no other magazine like it. Lo and behold, Diabolique’s ventures since have included the upcoming return of H.G. Lewis, entitled BLOODMANIA, and now, a full-length feature documentary entitled HAMMER HORROR: THE WARNER BROS YEARS.

  • Jeffrey Dean Morgan joins “THE WALKING DEAD’ as infamous villain Negan

    ,

    To be completely honest, there is rarely a show that can make it to six seasons and offering such compelling television as THE WALKING DEAD, even if the most recent episode wasn’t as exhilarating or contemplative as the ones that came before it. Nevertheless, fans of THE WALKING DEAD comic have been waiting for the appearance of a certain someone ever since Rick Grimes and his group made it to Alexandria, and finally, we know exactly when we are going to meet the one and only Negan, and who will be filling his sadistic shoes.

  • In Memoriam: Gunnar Hansen, The Original Leatherface from “THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE”

    ,,

    An ugly, unfortunate fact that all horror fans have to face is the depressing nature of death. Even though we all live and breathe a genre that revolves around death, the truth is that death is a something we all have to face at one point or another. And in terms of the iconic filmmakers and actors who helped foster the love of horror in us all, the next ten to twenty years will remind us of the fact in the worst way.

  • “OH THE FLESH YOU WILL EAT” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    Most readers associate the name ‘Dr. Seuss’ with goofy, wholesome fun about elephants hearing invisible creatures and hat-wearing felines trashing houses simply because it’s funny. His clever rhymes have been celebrated for decades by parents and their brood, despite the good Doctor’s notorious fear of children. But haven’t you ever wanted to see Seuss’s work a bit more edgy? Perhaps instead of adorable creatures doing silly things, those said creatures are off killing the world or spreading disease?

  • Nicolas Winding Refn’s “THE NEON DEMON” Acquired by Amazon

    ,

    Two weeks ago, this writer wrote a Deaditorial about the problematic economic relationship between streaming services and the horror genre. And while that relationship is still a bit of a concern to this writer, news broke over the weekend exclusively via Variety that might point at least one service going in a genre-friendly direction as Amazon Studios has acquired Nicolas Winding Refn’s highly anticipated horror film THE NEON DEMON.

  • Horrific love story “NINA FOREVER” set for Valentine’s Day release

    ,

    Undying love sees one of its most gruesome expressions in NINA FOREVER, a SXSW premiere that has won plenty of fest praise, and is now heading for U.S. release.

    Epic Pictures has announced that NINA FOREVER, written and directed by Ben and Chris Blaine, will open February 12, 2016 for Valentine’s Day weekend. The movie just received British Independent Film Awards nominations for Best Debut Director and Most Promising Newcomer, the latter for Abigail Hardingham, who stars alongside Cian Barry and Fiona O’Shaughnessy; it also took the Best Feature prize at this year’s FrightFest. The synopsis: “NINA FOREVER follows Holly [Hardingham] as she begins a relationship with her co-worker Rob [Barry], who is grieving over the recent death of his girlfriend Nina [O’Shaughnessy] from a motorcycle accident. Holly has fallen for Rob and is determined to help him though his grief. Yet every time they make love, Nina appears; tangled, bloody and still fixated on Rob. Holly doesn’t freak out and run—she can deal with the dead girl sharing their bed, their lives, their minds. If it’s what Rob needs, it’s what she’ll do, regardless of the consequences.”

    “NINA FOREVER offers a strong alternative to audiences sick of the standard, overly sappy Valentine’s Day fare,” says Epic’s Patrick Ewald. “The film smartly mixes humor, horror and romance elements in a film that is surprisingly touching and thought-provoking.” Adds Epic’s Shaked Berenson, “Similar to IT FOLLOWS, NINA FOREVER appeals to wider audiences because of its subtext. Unlike pure horror films, it’s a relationship-horror story in which well-drawn characters drive the story.” Check out NINA FOREVER’s official website and Facebook page.
