  • Contest: Win a “HORROR CLASSICS VOL. 1” Blu-ray Set!

    ,

    There are few institutions more integral to the horror genre than Hammer Studios, the UK-based production hub that gave classic monsters of film and literature a contemporary theatrical polish, complete with blood, nudity and incredible production design. And as any Hammer fan can tell you, the wait for the studio’s scare fare to make it into the world of high definition has been a restless one. However, the wait is over, and with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment releasing four of Hammer’s most memorable films in their HORROR CLASSICS VOL. 1 Blu-ray set, FANGORIA has ten terrifying copies to giveaway to devoted horror hounds. Read on to find out how…

  • “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.”

  • “NIGHT FARE” (Mile High Horror Film Review)

    ,,

    To call NIGHT FARE a weird entry into the horror genre is one hell of an understatement. It’s an incredibly well-crafted and exceptionally thrilling film that, at times, shows shades of JOY RIDE, THE HITCHER and THE MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN into the mix. However, it’s also a bit of a tonal rollercoaster, and while the entire experience is a damn fun time, some of the sharp turns on display are flat-out bewildering. While a lesser filmmaker would likely make those choices in a disjointed or erratic fashion, director Julien Seri works some unabashed midnight movie magic to make NIGHT FARE work as a strange, sinister new import you’ll have to see to believe.

  • “THEY LOOK LIKE PEOPLE” (Mile High Horror Film Review)

    ,,

    There’s a certain skill in creating a psychological horror film that feels ultimately human. While it was Norman Bates who reminded us that “We all go a little mad sometimes,” to tap into innately human fears that the average person can relate to is a difficult task, especially when so many filmmakers go for the explicitly surreal to heighten their scares. Yet it is the humanity of THEY LOOK LIKE PEOPLE that makes it so absolutely unnerving, playing up the everyday life of the characters and their unassuming normality before twisting the perspective into something much scarier.
