  • “SANDMAN” Adaptation to Shun Clichés, Says Star/Producer Gordon-Levitt

    ,

    After months of silence on the SANDMAN movie, actor-turned-producer Joseph Gordon-Levitt has finally revealed details on the progress of turning DC/Vertigo’s monumental comic epic into a movie. In an interview with MTV, he announces his intention to make an action film without ever throwing a punch. While the source material certainly has its moments of octane thrills and dark chills, it’s generally regarded as a high art comic that focuses on philosophy and human frailty to push it along. So, how does our young new-comer intend to balance the two?

  • Flesh and Blood: “PHANTASM II”

    ,,,,

    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!

  • FANTASTICA Presents: When Animal Films Attack!

    ,,

    In the past, animals have always played an important role in the lexicon of horror. Now, we see animals as some sort of radioactive experiment gone wrong or a total far out way to destroy a city (I am looking at you SHARKNADO). In these contemporary projects, people forget that animals in their natural habitats are often terrifying, and that many people have fears of spiders, sharks and any animal that has sharp teeth and a thirst for blood.  Modern directors’ forays into animal horror are often so over the top that it is not scary; instead, it becomes laughable. But it didn’t always used to be that way, as more realistic animal horrors from fright film history would make people think, “Can this happen to me?”

  • “SALEM: Season 2, Episode 10” (TV Review)

    ,,

    After the past couple of episodes of SALEM, this writer wondered if the show would be veering through the downtrodden track it had set itself up for. With Mary facing her child’s sacrifice, Isaac missing in Marburg’s company, Cotton facing an impromptu execution and Anne facing the consequences of her own powers, SALEM certainly looked like it was setting up some sincere emotional devastation for its climax. And while that still might be the case, knowing how quickly the tide can change on WGN America’s flagship series, “Till Death Do Us Part” at least introduced a light among the dark and is certainly drawing lines between our anti-heroes and our villains.

    ,,

    In Monessen, Pennsylvania many people were recently seen crawling through the streets in zombie make-up. But who is behind this zombie apocalypse? Legendary, punk rock band, the Misfits.
