  • “GOOSEBUMPS” (Movie Review)

    ,,,

    The opening logos on GOOSEBUMPS include not only the expected Sony and Columbia Pictures, but also Sony Pictures Animation. While this portends an excessive amount of CGI to follow, the filmmakers have at least made a run at hitching their wagon to their actors—at least until an excessive amount of digital FX does follow. So much so that one of the freakish creatures pictured on the poster/ad art can barely be glimpsed in the finished movie, where he (it?) is relegated to massing-monster crowd scenes.

  • Q&A: Casper Van Dien on Adopting a Killer Kid in “JUNE”

    ,,

    Considering how much depth and pathos STARSHIP TROOPERS/SLEEPY HOLLOW star Casper Van Dien brings to his nuanced, powerful turn as the adoptive father of the titular 9-year-old who drives the spectral coming-of-rage tale JUNE, it’s difficult to believe his path to the role began with the random serendipity of co-star Victoria Pratt passing him her cell phone between shots on the set of his award-winning sophomore directorial effort PATIENT KILLER.

  • Q&A: Taissa Farmiga Talks the Standout Satirical Slasher “THE FINAL GIRLS”

    ,,,

    Todd Strauss-Schulson’s THE FINAL GIRLS may be a completely on-point riff on the conventions of ’80s slasher fare, but there’s a strong beating heart at the center of the bloodshed: Taissa Farmiga as heroine Max. The AMERICAN HORROR STORY actress sat down with FANGORIA for this exclusive interview.

  • “THE MIND’S EYE” (Movie Review)

    ,,,

    If SCANNERS came out today, what would we make of it? Luckily, we don’t have to ask ourselves this question with THE MIND’S EYE exploding across the festival scene (including Austin, TX’s Fantastic Fest). Informed as much by the 1994 spinoff SCANNER COP as by the iconic headbusting classic itself, THE MIND’S EYE takes the whole franchise and channels it into a bad-ass midnight movie that wears its love of David Cronenberg right on its sleeve.

Written and drawn by the series founder Eric Powell, we follow the Goon as he stumbles onto a circus run by a legion of the damned. An excellent addition to an already incredible series, the work is a great little side story for fans new and old.

  • “MORITURIS” (Blu-ray/DVD Review)

    ,,

    Crucifixion. Death by millstone grinding. Men outfitted in rotting animal hides and thrown to wild dogs. Evening garden parties lit by burning, accelerant-soaked Christians hanging from trees. Damnatio ad bestias (“condemnation to beasts”) as public entertainment in the amphitheaters. Sawing of live upside-down human beings from crotch to skull. Julian of Antioch publicly humiliated and beaten every day for a full year before being sewed up, as Wikipedia notes, “in a sack half-filled with scorpions, sand, and vipers, and cast into the sea.”
