  • “BARRY BAKER: ASPIRING SERIAL KILLER” (TV Review)

    ,,

    There’s always a weird separation between what serial killers are and what society often perceives them to be. Often times, society imagines serial killers as these terrifying prowlers, or romanticizes them to be these misunderstood outcasts who are byproducts of their environment. But in reality, being a serial killer is a bit of an insane, complicated task: most serial killers are lucky more than calculating and effective, and anything can go wrong, from the planning to the act itself to the disposal of evidence. And in the new horror comedy pilot BARRY BAKER: ASPIRING SERIAL KILLER, anything and everything does go wrong, with a tongue-in-cheek look at a normal guy with homicidal tendencies.

  • Exclusive Clip: Creature Concerns in Bryan Bertino’s “THE MONSTER”

    ,

    Ever since THE STRANGERS shook up the world of horror eight years ago, fright fans have kept a keen eye on filmmaker Bryan Bertino.

However, that wait is now over, as Bertino is back with THE MONSTER, a tale of love, heartbreak, sacrifice, and a massive, man-eating monster. And for those looking for a sneak peek at THE MONSTER, FANGORIA is excited to unveil an exclusive clip from the film, which you can see below!

  • Event Report: “TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE” Live at Lincoln Center!

    ,,

    As any New Yorker can tell you, a 70-degree night in the middle of October is a fairly strange occurrence. But perhaps the peculiarly warm weather was fitting for a night such as October 20th, in which the good folks at Glass Eye Pix would be taking their eerie brand of radio plays to Lincoln Center for another live edition of TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE. Yet even beyond a showcase for the varying degrees of audio terror that can come from the minds of filmmakers Larry Fessenden and Glenn McQuaid, TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE is such a special experience because it truly feels communal, with horror enthusiasts gathering en masse to witness the petrifying proceedings.

  • New York Comic Con 2016: Actor John C. McGinley on “STAN AGAINST EVIL”

    ,

    Despite likely being best known for his stellar comedic acting as well as roles in films such as PLATOON, POINT BREAK, and THE ROCK, actor John C. McGinley is no stranger to the horror genre. Whether it’s coming face-to-face with a living skeleton in SE7EN, hunting Ice-T in SURVIVING THE GAME, playing a distraught father in IDENTITY, or his upcoming role in THE BELKO EXPERIMENT, McGinley has proven himself adept at filling in a multitude of roles in many cinematic nightmares. Yet McGinley’s experience with comedy, drama, action, and horror will come in handy for his latest role, the titular character from STAN AGAINST EVIL, the new IFC series from THE SIMPSONS alumni Dana Gould. Luckily, FANGORIA was on the scene at New York Comic Con 2016, where McGinley shared a surprisingly candid and emotional insight into his experiences with and surrounding STAN AGAINST EVIL…

  • Q&A: Curators Colin Geddes and Sam Zimmerman talk Shudder

    ,

On the day of this interview with TIFF Midnight Madness programmer Colin Geddes and FANGORIA alumni Sam Zimmerman about the launch of their latest joint venture, Shudder Canada, another Canadian media streaming site named Shomi, announced its closure. Yet Shudder Canada was the organic next step for the AMC-owned streaming service, launching on the heels of the US-centric Shudder’s successful first year. With their impressive library growing by the day, FANGORIA sat down with Geddes and Zimmerman to talk about Shudder, combating piracy, and, of course, the films they know, love, and are ready to share with the rest of the world…

  • Contest: Win A “LITTLE SISTER” Goth Nun Costume!

    ,

    ,,

    Over the years, there’s been plenty of songs, poems, writings, and sayings surrounding the idea of “paying the devil his due.” For some, it’s all about karma and comeuppance, but for others, it’s something more spiritual, more biblical, and more sacrificial in nature, which is where Nick Jongerius’ disturbing Dutch horror offering THE WINDMILL comes in. And with XLrator and FANGORIA offering a free screening of THE WINDMILL tonight, this writer spoke to Jongerius about putting together this tale of sinners and slaughter…
