    “BURYING THE EX” (Blu-ray Review)

    Out of the many of the proclaimed “Masters of Horror” working today, there’s few who keep their cinematic voices as refreshing and versatile as Joe Dante. While his budgets and resources are a far cry from his subversive studio days, Dante still goes for broke in terms of his projects and subject matter as opposed to slumming it with annoying tailored fan service. There’s no better example of Dante’s evolving voice than BURYING THE EX, a potentially by-the-numbers Rom-Zom-Com that escapes its meager means via Dante’s ambition and willingness to get down and dirty with the subject matter.

    FANGO Flashback: “BONES” (2001)

    Upon its initial release, BONES was not defined by the impressive track record of director Ernest Dickerson, nor was it defined by New Line Cinema, which had been struggling to find a horror successor to the nearly decade defunct NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET franchise. No, BONES was defined by and pre-emptively written off by many horror fans because of its star, rapper Snoop Dogg, whose face and thin visage would define the marketing for BONES. However, because BONES was regarded (and disregarded) as “that Snoop Dogg horror movie,” not many horror aficionados took the time to give the movie a chance. Had they did, perhaps they would have seen what this writer saw when revisiting the film one week ago: a genuinely creepy and incredibly fun fright flick with shades of imaginative insanity throughout.

    “THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS” (Blu-ray Review)

    There’s no denying that Wes Craven is indeed one of the top directors in the genre, and there are few who are outright more terrifying and gripping that Craven at the top of his game. Yet Craven is known for his peaks as well as his valleys, and from the jump from one point to another, there is a ton of weird, wild stuff on the way. THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS is among Craven’s most bizarre (and heavy-handed) films, and though the film isn’t necessarily a genre classic in any regards, the outrageous places the flick eventually goes has rightfully earned THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS a loyal cult audience.

    Stream to Scream: “DUST DEVIL”

    There are horror films that attempt to scare the audience by creating a world as close to our reality as possible; films that go for grit and realism in order to make you believe that a palpable threat could be lurking just outside your door. On the opposite end of the spectrum, there are movies that place their narratives deep inside a dreamscape, forcing the characters within to navigate a world where myth and monsters are God, and the corporeal realm we know is an afterthought at best.

    “THE SLASHENING” (Film Review)

    In an age where horror spoofs are almost universally derided, there’s a certain amount of gutsy respect afforded to filmmaker Brandon Bassham for going straight into THE SLASHENING as a parody. After all, there’s only so much material in the slasher genre that has yet to be untouched by spoofs or commented upon by self-referential fright flicks. And while this serves true for some parts of THE SLASHENING, which is clearly inspired beyond its means, Bassham thankfully takes a more absurdist approach that provides inherent charm to this lean, mean parody.

    “HARBINGER DOWN” (Film Review)

    For a critic who primarily reviews within the horror genre, giving a completely unbiased review to a project such as HARBINGER DOWN is almost impossible. Given the film’s publicized Kickstarter, promotional materials presenting itself as a “practical effects film” and the heartbreaking saga of Studio ADI’s work on THE THING, HARBINGER DOWN has been a film fright fans have been rooting for since day one. And while any horror fan should be excited when one of the industries top FX masterminds is given free reign to do an old school monster movie, that same sense anticipation can be a double edged sword, and HARBINGER DOWN unfortunately falls into that category.
