    Q&A: Director Luciano Onetti on Experimental Neo-Giallo, “SONNO PROFONDO”

    Neo-giallo is a fascinating, often exhilarating thing. As the beloved genre is currently seeing a revival, be it in small stylistic nods or all-out throwback, the current incarnations are more interesting than average subgenre homage. Possibly because giallo is so steeped in style, design and psychosexual leanings, the current crop aren’t tediously adhering to formula.

    “HANNIBAL: SEASON TWO” (Blu-ray Review)

    Despite ratings that pale to those of THE WALKING DEAD, there’s little doubt that Bryan Fuller’s HANNIBAL is more fun than any horror show currently on television. By existing in its own universe and playing by its own logic, HANNIBAL is able to deliver excellent drama, tremendous performances and some of the most shocking gore ever presented on network television. Beyond that, HANNIBAL is a show of utter confidence; often delving into the surreal and perturbed, the show trusts it’s audience to go along for the journey no matter what weird direction they may be taken.

    Q&A: Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl Talks Going Green for “LEPRECHAUN: ORIGINS”

    When WWE Studios announced its intention to reboot the campy LEPRECHAUN franchise with the more serious LEPRECHAUN: ORIGINS, its choice for the lead was an obvious one: wrestler Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl, who had previously donned leprechaun garb in the ring. FANGORIA spoke to the actor about his new take on the Irish evildoer.

    Joe Dante’s “THE BURBS” (Arrow Blu Review)

    Joe Dante hit the cultural zeitgeist hard with GREMLINS, delivering a knowing horror comedy for kids at the peak of an era in which children were swallowing up genre VHS rentals at a record pace. The film was such a hit that it afforded Dante about a decade of Hollywood freedom to make strange, self-conscious, genre-bending comedies like THE EXPLORERS, INNERSPACE, MATINEE and GREMLINS 2: THE NEW BATCH. None of them were particularly successful as Dante’s sensibility was always too dark, sardonic, and knowing for massive crossover success beyond that inexplicable Christmas monster movie hit. However, the man’s entire canon from the period has gone on to become cult classics and one in particular seems to only grow in popularity.

    “CLOSER TO GOD” (Fantastic Fest Review)

    Out here in the real world, the marriage of medical inquiry to ever-evolving technology has eradicated plagues, advanced life expectancy dramatically, and provided a good deal of the planet’s inhabitants with a standard (and quality) of living that has vastly expanded our ability to pursue individual dreams and aspirations in ways those who previously trudged through human history could not even begin to fathom. (On this point, see Matt Ridley’s epic 2011 tour de force, THE RATIONAL OPTIMIST.) There are, of course, tragic and deeply disturbing examples of vile excess in the pursuit of a purported common good—the Tuskegee experiment, MKUltra, Project 4.1, profoundly immoral and heinous animal experimentation, the Burke and Hare murders—but, generally speaking, the benefits that have redounded to we the living via our collective (and overwhelmingly non-psychotic!) march of progress are, in context, nearly as fantastical as they are miraculous.
