    Women in Horror Month: Stephanie Rothman, The Feminist Queen of Exploitation Cinema

    While February is commonly considered to the Black History Month, genre fans have also adopted the month for another cause: Women in Horror Month, recognizing and celebrating the often underappreciated women who help make the genre what it is today. While by no means demeaning the work of men within the genre, Women in Horror Month asks horror fans to turn their eyes beyond just the scream queens and final girls, but rather to the hard-working women who struggle to make great work specifically for the genre they love. Therefore, FANGORIA is celebrating Women in Horror Month by shining a light on some of the most instrumental women to the development of horror as we know it…

    Event Report: Vinegar Syndrome Presents “DON’T GO IN THE WOODS” at Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers!

    New York area FANGORIA fans are likely (or if not, should be) aware of the Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers, our favorite purveyors of specialty and dine-in cinema. And if they are, they’re likely not to miss out on some of horror’s most excellent revival screenings, including those by FANGORIA, Video Vortex and Vinegar Syndrome. And it’s the latter that brought this writer out to the Drafthouse last Saturday, as I served as host to Vinegar Syndrome’s screening of the newly remastered cult classic DON’T GO IN THE WOODS.

    CHRISTINE Revisited, Part One: A Q&A with Keith Gordon

    Thirty years ago, director John Carpenter took to the driver’s seat in adapting one of Stephen King’s most successful novels from the early ‘80s: CHRISTINE. The result: a taut, beautifully realized film that was not only a top notch horror flick, but a brilliant exploration into America’s romance with the automobile! CHRISTINE is all about possession and obsession, and the monster herself sets her high beams on the pathetic miserable Arnold Cunningham. Transforming for the worse as a result of “owning” the titular ’58 Plymouth Fury, Keith Gordon gave life to Arnold Cunningham all those years ago, and recently spent some time with FANGORIA to revisit his past love- that sleek, sexy but sinister CHRISTINE…

    “POKER NIGHT” (Blu-ray Review)

    Having last seen POKER NIGHT on the big screen, I’ve been surprised about how few horror fans have had the film on their radar. From the initially FANGORIA-presented screening, the film absolutely blew away this writer’s expectations, delivering something creepy, funny, brutal and compelling all in one sitting. But unlike several less-than-great titles that hit around the same time, there was a certain unjust preconception around the horror lot that the film wasn’t up to snuff thanks to its masked antagonist. So with POKER NIGHT’s impending Blu-ray release, this writer took the opportunity to revisit the film and see if it’s particular brand of horror held up on a second viewing in high definition.

    “LOVE AT FIRST BITE” / “ONCE BITTEN” Double Feature (Blu-ray Review)

    In Scream Factory’s attempts to bring unheralded gems of genre cinema to Blu-ray, the company has also culled some of the most beloved, but more obscure, cult classics into the fold as well. Whether it be sleazy, insane or outright absurd, Scream Factory is giving these titles new life among their creepy catalog. And while sometimes this leads to some truly exceptional rediscoveries, it also occasionally leads to cult misfires as well, such as the Double Feature Blu-ray of Howard Storm’s ONCE BITTEN and Stan Dragoti’s LOVE AT FIRST BITE.
