  • Q&A: Director Lawrence Roeck on “DIABLO”

    ,

    With the genre marketplace being as it is, it’s actually not quite surprising to see both westerns and horror movies, with secular fan bases in their own right, cross paths so often in recent months. With bone tomahawk, the hateful eight and and now Lawrence Roeck’s DIABLO, the line between gritty western, shocking horror and brutal thriller has become more and more blurred. And while the latter is probably more notable for its cast, which includes Western royalty Scott Eastwood as well as Walton Goggins and Danny Glover, the inspirations, hard-hitting violence, thematic material and cinematography from Dean Cundey make DIABLO a must see for horror fans. Fangoria caught up with Roeck to talk DIABLO, shooting an indie western and the film’s frightening influences…

  • Arrow Video Announces U.S. Blu-ray Releases for “BRIDE OF RE-ANIMATOR”, “THE STUFF”

    ,

    Upon hitting U.S. shores in late 2014, Arrow Video has truly gone above and beyond to give the Criterion treatment to its genre releases, no matter how obscure. With deluxe high definition reissues of titles like Brian Yuzna’s SOCIETY, Mario Bava’s BLOOD AND BLACK LACE and Tobe Hooper’s EATEN ALIVE, Arrow Video proved they could stand with the domestic boutique big boys, and with their first title announcements for 2016, they’re coming out of the gate swinging once again.

  • “CHERRY TREE” (Film Review)

    ,,

    After collaborating on the superb and creepy WAKE WOOD, one would think that the combination of director David Keating and writer/producer Brendan McCarthy might be able to replicate that same magic (no pun intended) for an equally wicked follow-up, CHERRY TREE. Yet, when all is said and done, CHERRY TREE is a simply frustrating experience, often times pushing and pulling between what the story wants and what the genre demands. That’s not to say the film is outright terrible; in fact, the third act is rather ironclad, save for the final stinger of it all. But that’s also to say that CHERRY TREE feels unfocused, going for cheap scares and uncomfortably familiar imagery over anything truly terrifying or even exceptionally entertaining.

  • Don’t Get Cross with The First “THE CONJURING 2” Trailer

    ,

    Very few films can given the somewhat oxymoronic title of “contemporary classic,” but James Wan’s THE CONJURING has undoubtedly earned it. A worldwide sensation that debuted to commercial and critical acclaim in the summer of 2013, THE CONJURING ensured James Wan’s position as a bona fide master of horror and a Hollywood power player. But even as it seemed Wan would move on from horror for the time being, the filmmaker has returned to the case files of Ed and Lorraine Warren for THE CONJURING 2: THE ENFIELD POLTERGIEST, and now, we have our first look at the highly anticipated horror sequel.

  • Exclusive Trailer: Found Footage Frightener “THE FINAL PROJECT”

    ,,

    With the increasingly saturated VOD market turning the horror business into one of the most crowded in the industry, it’s always a bit refreshing to see an independent film find alternate methods of distribution. This is especially more refreshing when that alternate method of distribution is theatrical, as experiencing horror in a theater is an experience unmatched at home viewing. It’s even more refreshing when that gamble is taken on a truly independent project, which is why the announcement of CAVU Pictures’ release strategy for Taylor Ri’chard’s debut feature THE FINAL PROJECT is one worth remembering. And luckily for our readers, FANGORIA has the exclusive first trailer for THE FINAL PROJECT, which you can see below!
