    “SONNO PROFONDO” (Movie Review)

    The following might very well be the shortest review you’ll read here at Fango this month. It’s not because SONNO PROFONDO (DEEP SLEEP) — a new Argentinian psychodrama from writer, composer, photographer and director Luciano Onetti — is a bad movie. It’s not. It’s actually not a movie at all really, in the traditional sense anyway.

    Q&A: Katie Cassidy on “THE SCRIBBLER”

    It’s an exciting landscape these days in independent filmmaking. Thanks to advances in digital filmmaking, more ambitious yet reasonably affordable films are being greenlit every day. Yet in these films, not only do we get to meet new, resourceful filmmakers but we  get to see more established actors experiment with their craft as well.

    Colin Farrell Confirms “TRUE DETECTIVE” Season Two Role!

    When HBO’s TRUE DETECTIVE launched earlier this year, few (including FANGORIA) could have predicted just how far into genre territory the series would venture. In fact, many horror fans have praised the season finale of TRUE DETECTIVE as one of the best hours of horror television this year, standing among horror procedurals such as SILENCE OF THE LAMBS and SE7EN. And with the series adopting the “seasonal anthology” format, speculation has run wild with where the series can go from here and if we should expect that genre element to return.

    “IT FOLLOWS” (Fantastic Fest Review)

    The concept that drives writer/director David Robert Mitchell’s unnerving horror film IT FOLLOWS is obvious in its allegory and certainly, the idea of evil VD has been mined since David Cronenberg literally spat out his sex parasites in 1975’s THE CAME FROM WITHIN (aka SHIVERS). Here, in IT FOLLOWS, it’s not the metaphorical frissons that affect the viewer, rather it is the economical ways in which its director uses sound, silences and framing to seep under the audience’s skin. And believe us, IT FOLLOWS, much like the spectral STD it introduces, leaves an unshakable residue long after withdrawal.

  • “DREAMS IN THE WITCH HOUSE: A LOVECRAFTIAN ROCK OPERA” (Music Review)

    Rock opera may not be the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of H.P. Lovecraft’s writing,  but the new album DREAMS INT HE WITCH HOUSE: A LOVECRAFTIAN ROCK OPERA manages to deliver the unexpected. The project, masterminded by executive producer Mike Dalager, is like the soundtrack to an elaborate stage production that may not exist, but seems like it should.

    Exclusive: Comments and poster art for cult novel adaptation “HOUSE OF STAIRS”

    Before THE MAZE RUNNER, and even before CUBE, there was HOUSE OF STAIRS, William Sleator’s 1974 cult-fave sci-fi/thriller novel about five teenagers trapped in a labyrinthine environment that leads some of them to turn on the others. Forty years after its publication, it’s finally set to become a movie, and FANGORIA spoke to its producers at the Frontières International Co-Production Market during Montreal’s Fantasia festival this past summer.

    Fifteen Shorts to see at Fantastic Fest 2014

    On the eve of Fantastic Fest 2014, FANGORIA—proud sponsor of the FF Shorts Programs—shared with our readers five stellar short films from the festival’s past to watch online in full. As the fest gets underway however, we turn our eye to its highly anticipated slate of short shock. Ever exciting in its short film programs (thanks in large part to curator and programmer Kier-La Janisse) Fantastic Fest is a destination for adventurous audiences, those with irreverent taste and looking for an amazing time. Sometimes, amazing is fun. Sometimes, amazing is gross. Sometimes, amazing is confrontational. Oftentimes, it’s simply way gnar. Roll then with me, through a selection of shorts to keep an eye out for. Some I’ve seen. Others, I’m just very much looking forward to. All, I’m hoping fans and festgoers will catch with me at the Alamo South Lamar.
