    Director Joe Begos on an “ALMOST HUMAN” Sequel and What’s Next

    On the eve of its theatrical and VOD release from IFC Midnight, festival favorite ALMOST HUMAN is riding high on buzz and a nostalgia-friendly marketing campaign. Should that (deserved) good word translate to a success, there just may be another ALMOST HUMAN in the wings. This writer caught up with director Joe Begos during his press rounds for the alien-abduction slasher flick, and the filmmaker talked a potential second outing. However, you should be warned that the comment does cover some spoiler territory. Be cautious before reading on…

    Still young yet, the Stanley Film Festival may already have the coolest destination of any genre film fest: The Stanley.

    “THE RAID’s” Gareth Evans Talks Possible Horror Feature

    With THE RAID and the forthcoming ultraviolent epic THE RAID 2, Gareth Evans has certainly cemented himself as a master of modern action cinema. Last year however, he also managed to blow audience’s minds with “Safe Haven,” a short horror film co-directed by Timo Tjahjanto, in found footage anthology V/H/S/2. The short focused on an Indonesian cult and revealed the same go-for-broke madness found in THE RAID movies, but tuned to a truly insane, Fulci-like dial. Naturally, we’re hoping Evans makes a return to the genre, and when speaking with the filmmaker about the intensely bloody THE RAID 2, FANGORIA asked if he’s inclined to make an all-out horror picture.

    Bill Zebub’s “INDIE DIRECTOR” (Movie Review)

    For years, this writer had been avoiding the work of enfant terrible filmmaker Bill Zebub for no other reason than they just didn’t speak to me. Zebub’s greasy oeuvre includes such quaintly christened features like ANTFARM DICKHOLE and JESUS, THE TOTAL DOUCHEBAG and I’ve seen enough no-budget junk in my time to be wary of pictures like this: movies that bait their audiences with cheap shock tactics, the cinematic equivalent of the grade school brat in the corner of the class with the cone hat, farting and making faces while the teacher contemplates murder-suicide. Just not my speed.

    New “OCULUS” Poster Goes Through the Looking Glass

    Allow me to express this sentiment again: Mike Flanagan’s OCULUS is a very highly anticipated horror film here. Having delivered the terrific, eerie ABSENTIA, and coupled with stunning festival word (including from Fango’s own Chris Alexander), it seems Flanagan has something special on his hands and each new piece of art ratchets up anticipation. A new one sheet has arrived, illustrating the otherworldly nature of this accursed mirror that haunts the film and its characters, and even sort of reminds me of the end of PRINCE OF DARKNESS.
