  • “AQUARIUS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    When AQUARIUS debuted earlier this year, positing itself as a genre-friendly lead-in to HANNIBAL’s third season, this writer took a shine to the show. It wasn’t the greatest procedural on television, but the characters were interesting, the writing went into curious directions and the Manson element brought a sense of perpetual horror to the show. But nevertheless, there always felt something off about AQUARIUS upon broadcast, almost as if the show was struggling to find its voice even though there appeared to be a great amount of creative freedom on display. However, upon revisiting the show on Blu-ray, where every episode is now offered in extended, unrated editions, and suddenly, it’s almost like watching an entirely new show, as AQUARIUS is clearly a premium cable show stuck in the format of a broadcast network program.

  • “HIGH-RISE” (TIFF Film Review)

    ,,

    Through his work in films like KILL LIST, SIGHTSEERS, and A FIELD IN ENGLAND, director Ben Wheatley has established himself as a twisted cinematic force. Armed with a distinctly cynical outlook, a dark wit, and a knack for unexpectedly graphic gut-punches, Wheatley delivers comedies and dramas that have the visceral shock impact of horror. Thus far, Wheatley has typically played in the realist realm that earned him comparisons to the likes of Mike Leigh (only with a blood-soaked streak); however, his latest feature is a different beast entirely. Based on a novel by CRASH’s J.G. Ballard, HIGH-RISE unfolds like a cinematic nightmare. It’s a deliberately alienating experience designed to thrust audiences into a nastily satirical vision of society and leave them in a state of disturbed awe.

    ,

    Following the loss of THE FOLLOWING, HANNIBAL, and CONSTANTINE all sadly out of the picture, horror programming on network television has been dwindling.

Now, with the third season on the horizon and the second season hitting Blu-ray tomorrow as a part of Fox Home Entertainment’s Holiday Collection, FANGORIA has an exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette clip from the High Def set that shows off how they achieved one of the show’s most eerie antagonists: The Pied Piper!

  • Q&A: Actor Gethin Anthony talks Charles Manson and “AQUARIUS”, Season One

    ,

    There’s few real-life figures that must be as intimidating to portray as notorious cult leader Charles Manson, whose psychological and physical torment lead to some of the most graphic murders of the 20th Century. Yet few tackle the chilling character with the gusto of one-time GAME OF THRONES star Gethin Anthony, who embodies Manson in all of his wicked ways on NBC’s intense and dark series, AQUARIUS. With AQUARIUS now making its way to home video, now with more violence, sex and foul language that was cut from broadcast, FANGORIA caught up with the versatile actor to talk Manson, music and the grim eventualities that await AQUARIUS…

  • Flesh and Blood: “INNOCENT BLOOD” [NSFW]

    ,,,,,

    As any fright fan knows, the horror genre has a particularly salacious relationship with sexually explicit content. And while nudity so often goes side by side with decapitated heads and brutal bloodletting, there are also horror filmmakers throughout the years who made an art form out of the human body with an appreciation of our most lurid and lucid desires. And it’s with that macabre mentality in mind that FANGORIA is proud to announce our partnership with Mr. Skin for a brand new NSFW column that looks to provoke our minds as well as our more physical impulses, FLESH AND BLOOD!
