  • FANGO Flashback: “NINJA III: THE DOMINATION”

    ,,

    As anyone familiar with the frequently over-the-top production house can tell you, The Cannon Group didn’t make the kind of films one forgets easily. In fact, with titles like 10 TO MIDNIGHT, SCHIZOID, THE COMPANY OF WOLVES and a trio of Tobe Hooper films (LIFEFORCE, INVADERS FROM MARS and THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2) under their belt, Cannon gave the horror genre some of the sleaziest, bloodiest, and most imaginative fare throughout the ‘80s.

  • Stream to Scream: “FRANKENHOOKER”

    ,,

    From what this writer hears and sees on a daily basis, many horror fans are turned off by what is being offered in the wave of modern macabre cinema these days. And while those fans might be a little dramatic and potentially a little blind to the excellent output on the independent level, this writer can agree that, in most cases, horror filmmakers just don’t make ‘em like they used to. Case in point: FRANKENHOOKER, the type of film that is both equally absurd and astonishing yet would never, ever be produced today.
