  • Exclusive: “BIG BAD WOLVES” Directors’ Chainsaw Award Acceptance Speech!

    ,,

    By now, it’s no surprise that FANGORIA has had our eyes on Israeli horror directors Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, TriBeCa darlings and crafters of such frightening foreign titles such as RABIES and BIG BAD WOLVES. And while BIG BAD WOLVES has had its fair share of praise from FANGORIA, Quentin Tarantino (who called it his favorite film of the year) and many other critics, fright fans themselves showed their love for the film in the 2015 Chainsaw Awards, voting Keshales and Papushado’s sophomore effort as the Best Foreign Language Film released last year against the likes of A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT, WITCHING & BITCHING, THE HOUSE AT THE END OF TIME and THE STRANGE COLOR OF YOUR BODY’S TEARS. After learning of their win, Keshales and Papushado wanted to thank their fans for voting for BIG BAD WOLVES, and you can read their statement below…

  • FANGO Flashback: “WITCHERY”

    ,,

    In 2011, Comic-Con was doing this huge promotion for the David Hasselhoff Comedy Central Roast, and publicists had been handing out Hasselhoff facemasks to thousands of attendees. That’s right: thousands of “David Hasselhoffs” were walking around Comic-Con! A Hoff-faced patron came over to the FANGORIA booth with his mask on, and asked, “Can the Hoff be in a horror film?” I replied, “Well, he was in WITCHERY.” Crickets…. Yeah, the Hoff was WITCHERY!

  • “HANNIBAL: Season 3, Episode 1” (TV Review)

    ,

    In many ways, the third season premiere for Bryan Fuller’s adaptation of the HANNIBAL mythos is much like the cannibalistic doctor himself: mysterious, unpredictable, cerebral and incredibly refined. Furthermore, the premiere’s masterful visual composition- jumping from flashbacks of multiple color palates, dream sequences, extremely methodical experimental shots and traditional lensing- earns an uneasy trust from the audience, much like Hannibal’s relationship with du Maurier as well. But following last season’s bloodbath of a finale, the audience who has restlessly awaited for HANNIBAL’s return are asked for a bit more patience in “Antipasto”, as not only is HANNIBAL unraveling the story at its own pace, but by its own unique design.

    ,

    The Brenner’s are the unsuspecting family to be receiving their fair share of terror in INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3, and Stefanie Scott is the unfortunate soul in this installment to be bearing the brunt of it.

We caught Scott on the brink of her Hollywood ascension and found out how a psychic predicted her rise in Tinseltown as well as the thespian benefits of listening to death metal…..

  • “THE NIGHTMARE” (Movie Review)

    ,,

    Rodney Ascher’s THE NIGHTMARE (in theaters and on VOD today from Gravitas Ventures) revisits the subjective-narrative documentary form he explored in his previous ROOM 237. In that film, without comment, we are whisked into a world of tinfoil-hat theories on the “real” meaning of Stanley Kubrick’s THE SHINING; in THE NIGHTMARE, the subject is sleep paralysis, a medical phenomenon in which the mind becomes awake, but the body is still strapped in the atonia of REM sleep.

  • FANGO Flashback: “DUEL”

    ,,

    Despite the stubborn arguments of some jaded fright fans, there’s no denying that JAWS is an essential film in the canon of the horror genre. The iconic score, the incredible practical effects and the genuine tension that creeps throughout; JAWS is a pop culture phenomenon that doesn’t only have the replay value of a genuine horror classic, but also the palpable scare factor that hits audiences hard to this day. And while Steven Spielberg never quite returned to out-and-out horror territory since, and understandably so considering the troubled production of JAWS, the film might have never been as effective had Spielberg not had a crash course in the craft of suspense and terror with DUEL.
