  • Q&A: Filmmaker Paul Schrader talks “DOG EAT DOG”

    ,,

    One of cinema’s greatest writers and most adventurous directors, there’s few filmmakers that are as prolific and as versatile as Paul Schrader. From his early years behind the page for Scorsese to his recent independent efforts behind the camera, Schrader’s career has at least earned the term interesting, especially considering the filmmaker’s many efforts to retain his vision for the stories he tells. Luckily, Schrader’s vision is unfiltered, uncut, and unpredictable with DOG EAT DOG, an adaptation of Eddie Bunker’s crime novel starring Nicolas Cage and Willem Dafoe. With the film playing at Fantastic Fest and finally hitting general audiences this weekend, FANGORIA spoke to Schrader about DOG EAT DOG, having final cut, and whether or not the filmmaker will ever return to the horror genre…

  • Exclusive Clip: Get Entranced by Anna Biller’s “THE LOVE WITCH”

    ,

    With the amount of fright films produced digitally every year, it’s always a treat to see a genre gem shot and edited on good ol’ celluloid. Therefore, it’s no surprise that this writer went head over heels for THE LOVE WITCH, a contemporary throwback to the technicolor AIP sexploitation films of the ’60s directed by visionary artist Anna Biller. With the film opening in L.A. tomorrow, FANGORIA has an exclusive clip from THE LOVE WITCH (which made our “Must See in 2016” list) that you can watch below!

  • Q&A: Zoe Kazan on Bryan Bertino’s “THE MONSTER”

    ,,

    One of the strongest aspects about Bryan Bertino’s latest horror offering THE MONSTER is that the film operates on many different levels. To some, THE MONSTER is an exceptional practical creature showcase, while to others, it’s a simple and solid exercise in intense horror filmmaking. But most viewers of THE MONSTER will appreciate the emotional story at the heart of the film, elevated by a pair of incredible performances by Ella Ballentine and Zoe Kazan. The latter, in the role of a combative and mentally wrought Mother, plays a truly unflattering role with gusto and resolve, and on the eve of the film’s VOD expansion, FANGORIA caught up with Kazan to discuss her experiences with THE MONSTER…

  • Joe Dante’s Roger Corman Biopic Set for 2017 Production, Company X to Produce

    ,

    It’s been two years since BURYING THE EX, the most recent Joe Dante feature, hit screens, with the filmmaker filling his time on television efforts such as SALEM and THE WITCHES OF EAST END.

  • New York Comic Con 2016: Actor Kim Coates talks “OFFICER DOWNE”

    ,,

    In the world of cinema, there are certain actors and roles that fit one another like a glove, especially within genre entertainment. Much like Robert Englund and John Jarratt inhabited the roles of Freddy Krueger and Mick Taylor with the greatest of ease, the same can be said of Kim Coates and the titular protagonist of M. Shawn Crahan’s OFFICER DOWNE. Produced by Mark Neveldine of the chaotic film duo Neveldine/Taylor, OFFICER DOWNE is ultraviolent, over-the-top, and fun as hell, and at last month’s New York Comic Con, FANGORIA spoke to Coates about taking on his most kick-ass role to date!

  • Max Landis Announced As Writer/Director of “AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON” Remake

    ,

    Deep down, I think all horror fans knew the day would come where Universal Pictures would announce the remake for AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON. This is especially true for those who’ve been following the career of Max Landis, son of horror master John Landis, as Max has tweeted previously about a project entitled “Moors” when it came to a potential remake from his father’s filmography. But now, it’s official: Deadline reports that Max Landis will serve as both writer and director for AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, with Robert Kirkman and David Alpert from Skybound Entertainment (THE WALKING DEAD) serving as producer.

  • “DON’T F*** IN THE WOODS” (Film Review)

    ,,

    For most horror fans, one of the biggest problems with contemporary horror is that it doesn’t quite capture the spirit of old-school fright films. Whether it’s CGI bloodshed and monsters, a lack of sexuality and violence, or the overly sleek and polished visuals, newer horror offerings just can’t emulate the gritty, D.I.Y., in-camera insanity of horror from yesteryear. However, if it’s bloodshed, nudity, and practical monsters that you’re missing, then there’s at least one horror film that you should seek out: Shawn Burkett’s aptly-titled DON’T FUCK IN THE WOODS.

  • Q&A: Filmmaker Oren Shai talks “THE FRONTIER”

    ,

    Suspense. Paranoia. Bloody Revenge.  Believe it or not, but horror and noir are surprisingly similar bedfellows, with both genres unafraid to explore the dark side of humanity. That is as true for classic noir as it is for contemporary pulp mysteries, such as Oren Shai’s THE FRONTIER. Starring THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL’s Jocelin Donahue, CRIMSON PEAK’s Jim Beaver, ROAD HOUSE’s Kelly Lynch, and YOU’RE NEXT’s AJ Bowen, THE FRONTIER is an intense, captivating neo-noir offering, and with the film about to hit select VOD outlets, FANGORIA spoke to Shai about how his haunting trip to THE FRONTIER came to be…

  • Brooklyn Horror Film Festival Review: “BEYOND THE GATES”

    ,,

    For horror fans who grew up in the ’80s and ’90s, chances are that they may have come across the weird world of VHS games. An alternative to tabletop roleplaying games as well as home console video games, VHS games would mix interactive storytelling with group-oriented challenges, akin to almost a more dramatic, produced version of a board game. With that in mind, it’s fairly insane that VHS games have not been utilized more often within the horror genre, and with Jackson Stewart’s BEYOND THE GATES, a horror-centric VHS game gets the JUMANJI treatment, except with way more blood and guts.
