  • NYC! BBQ Films to offer NYCC “BLADE” Blood Rave & Interactive Experience with The Crystal Method!

    ,,,

    There’s no denying that getting horror hounds to their local theater has been a chore as of late; there’s a reason studios have been wary of giving a horror film any budget whatsoever. So, as a result, exhibitors, festivals and event organizers have found business in bringing the cinematic language to audiences outside of the theaters, with interactive experiences providing new, cutting edge transmedia. One of the companies who are truly showcasing the future of entertainment is the aptly titled NYC-based BBQ Films, who have constructed events that not only work as parties inside the realm of a specific film, but also double as an interactive theatrical experience. And now, BBQ Films have their first, and likely not last, horror film experience just in time for New York Comic Con as they are putting together the Blood Rave from the opening sequence of BLADE!

  • The Dreadful Ten: Top 10 Most Anticipated Horror Directorial Follow-Ups

    ,,

    With more and more film festivals becoming genre-centric or adding emphasis to their horror-friendly midnight line-ups, there have been an increasing number of horror directors bursting onto the horror scene. Unfortunately, with the independent market being how it currently is, it’s a blessing that even a few of these director’s get a chance to make a second film, let alone carve out a career path. Combine that with myriad proven storytellers in the genre and there are sadly too many filmmakers that have been dormant for one reason or another for too long. Thus, FANGORIA has assembled our ten most anticipated directorial follow-ups in the genre…

  • “HARDCORE” (TIFF Film Review)

    ,,

    HARDCORE is a tricky movie to review. On the one hand, there’s no denying that it’s an extraordinary, ground-breaking achievement on a technical level, offering a cinematic rush that’s unlike anything that’s ever been seen before. On the other hand, beyond pure technique and visceral thrills, the flick is almost insultingly stupid and frequently poorly acted. However, if you can get past any hope of compelling characters or a meaningful storyline, there’s no denying that HARDCORE will knock your socks off as a pure thrill ride. You’ve just got to check your brain at the door or, better yet, remove it entirely.

  • Exclusive Video: FANGORIA goes to Wakaliwood!

    ,,

    In May 2015, Fangoria scribe David Bertrand made the brave/foolish decision to fly to “Wakaliwood”, Uganda – home of Ramon Film Productions, Uganda’s one and only DIY action film studio. Expecting to meet filmmaker Nabwana IGG and his armada of kung fu commandos (the team behind such incredible and insane action-packed, one-of-a-kind minor masterpieces of DIY cinema such as WHO KILLED CAPTAIN ALEX? UGANDA’S FIRST ACTION MOVIE) Bertrand discovered instead, to his delight and terror, that the Wakaliwood crew were preparing to film Uganda’s first horror film: EATEN ALIVE IN UGANDA.

  • Q&A: Actor Spencer Breslin talks “SOME KIND OF HATE”

    ,

    When it comes to independent horror filmmaking, what you may lack in resources and time, you attempt to compensate with good will. After all, a project worth supporting and rooting for is much more tempting for those working on an independent level as opposed to the jobs acquired out of necessity. But in that good will, you find those willing to champion the film, and in the case of Adam Egypt Mortimer’s modern slashterpiece SOME KIND OF HATE, the film is well equipped with champions. One of the film’s most longstanding champions, Spencer Breslin (who brings to life one of the film’s few redeemable characters, Isaac) spoke to FANGORIA recently to talk about the film, memorable moments from the blistering set and what’s next for the young actor…

  • “THE DEVIL’S CANDY” (TIFF Film Review)

    ,,

    Australian director Sean Byrne caused quite a stir with his 2009 debut THE LOVED ONES when it premiered at TIFF’s midnight madness. A peculiar mix of John Hughes teen melodrama and harsh gore horror, THE LOVED ONES toyed with viewers and twisted expectations in a manner designed to specifically please movie nerds. Unfortunately, studios didn’t quite know what to make of THE LOVED ONES, and the film took ages to actually reach screens after making the festival rounds. So it’s not too surprising that Byrne’s long delayed return is a far more conventional genre effort, nor is it particularly surprising that the more conventional movie isn’t quite as interesting.

  • FANGO Flashback: “THE DEAD ZONE” (1983)

    ,,

    When Cronenberg comes up in discussion among horror fans, THE DEAD ZONE doesn’t get quite as much attention as Cronenberg’s more esoteric and bizarre offerings. In fact, THE DEAD ZONE is almost a perpetually overlooked title among the director’s impressive oeuvre, despite being as scary as any film the Canadian Master of Horror has ever crafted. Even more to his credit, Cronenberg crafted something truly unsettling and eerie while effectively visualizing the voice of Stephen King, who, at the time, was a bona fide horror powerhouse with a legion of loyal fans.
