  • Q&A: The Soska Sisters talk “VENDETTA”, “HELLEVATOR” & More…

    ,

    When it comes to twin female directors working in the horror genre, there’s nary a pair working harder and more consistently than Jen and Sylvia Soska. The Canadian born-and-bred directors of such fright fare as AMERICAN MARY and DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK have since found a haven of morbid material over at WWE Studios, helming SEE NO EVIL 2 before moving onto the bloody revenge flick VENDETTA. Now with the latter film breaking into the home video market this week, FANGORIA spoke with the Twisted Twins themselves about VENDETTA, their upcoming Blumhouse game show HELLEVATOR, their latest fright feature PLASTIC and their visceral venture into the world of comic books…

  • “SINISTER 2” (Film Review)

    ,,

    For those going into SINISTER 2 believing it to be a retread of the first SINISTER, this writer has some good news and some bad news for you. The bad news is that SINISTER 2 is not much like the original SINISTER in most ways, even if the strong family-driven drama and graphic kill films carry over into the Ciaran Foy-directed sequel. The good news is, however, that SINISTER 2 is different in many great ways, and the many ways that the film spins the mythology of Bughuul and his potential victims offers something much more unique to fright fans while still satisfying SINISTER die-hards.

  • Q&A: Producer Jason Blum talks “SINISTER 2”, “CREEP” and “THE VISIT”

    ,

    A producer’s job is never done, and that’s certainly true for Blumhouse mastermind Jason Blum. With his name on nearly every theatrical horror offering this year, including THE BOY NEXT DOOR, THE LAZARUS EFFECT, UNFRIENDED, INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3, THE GALLOWS and THE GIFT, Blum has created one of the most successful brands in the genre with his unique business model, and looks to prove so again with his latest production, SINISTER 2. With the film hitting theaters today, FANGORIA caught up with Blum to talk about the SINISTER sequel as well as what other macabre movies Blumhouse has on their horizon…

  • Q&A: Kate Bosworth talks “AMNESIAC”

    ,

    While the slasher boom of the ‘80s and late ‘90s painted the horror genre as not a particularly great playing ground for actresses, there’s little denying that the genre has also offered some women the chance to truly wow audiences. Whether it’s Janet Leigh in PSYCHO, Mia Farrow in ROSEMARY’S BABY, Kathy Bates in MISERY or Essie Davis in THE BABADOOK, the right genre project can present actresses a chance to break expectations and deliver a performance that is truly memorable. The same can definitely be said about Michael Polish’s new thriller AMNESIAC, which affords longtime leading lady Kate Bosworth the chance to go into much darker yet ultimately more fascinating territory. FANGORIA recently spoke to Bosworth about playing a twisted take on a “Hitchcock Blonde”…

  • “THE BINDING” (Film Review)

    ,,

    Despite its vomit-spewing, head-spinning horror pedigree, William Friedkin’s intelligent and nuanced 1973 classic THE EXORCIST transcends genre. In addition to its healthy box office, two Oscar wins and four Golden Globes, the film was celebrated by the Vatican upon its release, with Father Kenneth Jadoff heralding it as a ‘deeply spiritual film’ given its examination of faith under duress. Having recently screened writer, producer and director Gus Krieger’s feature directorial debut THE BINDING, itself a powerful and thought-provoking film, I predict a similar emotional response from audiences, denominational, agnostic or otherwise.
