  • “MR. NEIGHBOR’S HOUSE” (TV Review)

    ,

    As someone who was raised on both horror and comedy, this writer has been somewhat of a fervent fan of Adult Swim’s particular brand of genre-fluid programming. From their deep cut horror references in shows like AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE and EAGLEHEART to their more outwardly demented material such as their “Infomercial” series, Brett Gelman DINNER specials and YOUR PRETTY FACE IS GOING TO HELL, Adult Swim has been steering their ship to the weirder and more wicked tides as of late. Their latest effort, the one-off “holiday” special entitled MR. NEIGHBOR’S HOUSE, is yet another step towards the unsettling, providing a bleak and nightmarish alternative to happy-go-luck children’s programming such as MR. ROGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD and PEE WEE’S PLAYHOUSE.

  • James Gunn-penned “THE BELKO EXPERIMENT” Premieres First Red Band Trailer

    ,

    Before he became the shepherd of Marvel’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY films, James Gunn was once the golden boy of Troma Entertainment, which he then followed with such twisted films as SLITHER and SUPER. But as Gunn found himself preoccupied with the second GUARDIANS flick, the writer/producer turned to WOLF CREEK franchise mastermind Greg McLean and THE CONJURING producer Peter Safran to bring his most shocking horror story yet to life: THE BELKO EXPERIMENT, which debuted to acclaim and quick acquisition following its premiere at TIFF 2016. Now, with BH Tilt and the recently revived Orion Pictures teaming to bring this ultraviolent ensemble picture to multiplexes nationwide, the first NSFW trailer for THE BELKO EXPERIMENT has arrived, and luckily, it doesn’t spoil too much, with only hints of the carnage that awaits…

  • Q&A: Filmmaker Isaac Ezban talks “THE SIMILARS”

    ,

    In today’s media landscape, far too many projects rely on the importance of nostalgia within their audience. Yet for some projects, nostalgia itself can be the building blocks of something truly fantastic, such in the case of Isaac Ezban’s THE SIMILARS. Pulling from classic sci-fi/horror hybrids of the ‘60s, especially THE TWILIGHT ZONE, Ezban is able to fully realize an original vision that feels respectful to its inspirations while firing on all cylinders in its own right. With the film now on VOD, FANGORIA caught up with Ezban to talk about THE SIMILARS, independent filmmaking, and his next film, PARALLEL…

  • Exclusive Details, Trailer: Vestron Video brings Bob Balaban’s “PARENTS” to Blu-ray!

    ,

    Last year, this writer had the pleasure of speaking to actor/filmmaker Bob Balaban about his storied career, including several unsung contributions to the horror genre (including MY BOYFRIEND’S BACK and the pilot for TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE). But out of his demented directorial efforts, Balaban is perhaps best known for PARENTS, a horror comedy that paints the nuclear family as crazed cannibals while sporting memorably macabre performances from Randy Quaid and Mary Beth Hurt. Now, with the film sadly absent from the world of high-definition, PARENTS is looking to get the Blu-ray treatment from none other than the recently revived Vestron Video label, and FANGORIA has the first details on the release below!

  • Q&A: Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues talk “DON’T BREATHE”

    ,,

    Having only directed a handful of short films at the time, it was surprise to horror fans that rookie director Fede Alvarez was given the shot at directing 2013’s EVIL DEAD reboot. What Alvarez proved with that film, though, was how capable he was as a filmmaker, giving fans a brutal and unflinching film that was not only entertaining as hell, but in this writer’s opinion, worthy of being placed right alongside the original film.
