  • The Dreadful Ten: 10 Awesome ’90s Horror Films!

    ,,

    As someone who grew up watching the many horror films of the ’90s, it’s always a bit disappointing to hear the decade get so much flack for its contributions to the genre. Sure, the ’80s are a tough act to follow, considering how many phenomenal, practical FX-driven fright films were spawned during that time, but the ’90s has had its fair share of awesome scare fare, most of which are miles more memorable that the decades that have come since. Even the guilty pleasures of the ’90s- your DEEP BLUE SEAs and ANACONDAs and what-have-you- are much easier to defend than some of the stinkers of the ’80s! So with that on our macabre mind, FANGORIA has decided to list off ten absolutely awesome ’90s horror offerings for your creepy consideration!

  • “BITE” (Film Review)

    ,,

    Since the heydey of body horror in the late ‘80s/ early ‘90s, the gruesome subgenre has resurfaced sporadically in recent times. As CGI becomes less of an industry standard among the low-budget horror realm, horror titles such as AMERICAN MARY, TUSK, and ANTIVIRAL have taken advantage of the power of practical FX work when applied to malevolent body modification. Yet while many of these films rely on surgery-gone-mad or flesh rotting away to the elements, few modern body horror offerings go truly beyond the pale for their main mutation. However, if Chad Archibald’s BITE is any indication, that tide could be turning in favor of the bold and ambitious side of the subgenre.

  • “BATES MOTEL: Season 4, Episode 8” (TV Review)

    ,,

    Episode 8 of BATES MOTEL is titled “Unfaithful” and the title couldn’t be more apt, as that’s exactly how Norman views his mother’s position with her new husband. Of course, Norma justifies her marriage and protective motherhood as “trying to protect” everyone from everything but for this viewer, the act is wearing thin. As for Norman, his anger and newfound inner brat is, while unappealing, not unwarranted. It becomes evident to him that he doesn’t fit into these new lives which leaves him feeling a growing resentment, planting more seeds towards the inevitable.

  • Stream to Scream: “THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD”

    ,,

    While horror anthologies may be one of the most debated subgenres out there, it’s unfortunate that Amicus- one of the seminal anthology producers of its time- is often left out of the conversation. Known best as their “portmanteau” productions, Amicus’ specific, often star-studded approach to anthology filmmaking is unique and rather fantastic, and yet they often find themselves absent from the discussions and listicles of the current horror landscape. Yet as Amicus becomes more accessible with each passing day with their inclusion on streaming and Blu-ray, the chances of their impressive anthology fare- such as TALES FROM THE CRYPT, DR. TERROR’S HOUSE OF HORRORS and THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD- becoming more pertinent to contemporary audiences grow with it.
