Therefore, it’s no surprise that so many funnymen are ardent fright fans. In our new column, Sidesplitters, FANGORIA chats with comedians who love horror as much as they love humor.

  • “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.

  • Q&A: Marcus Nispel talks “EXETER”, Remakes and Charles Manson

    ,

    To horror hounds, the name ‘Marcus Nispel’ is mostly associated with his Platinum Dunes-produced remakes of THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (2003) and FRIDAY THE 13TH (2009). But in 2015, the talk has shifted to new, original territory with the bloody possession flick EXETER. The film, which follows a group of teenagers who decide to party in an old asylum only to find themselves systematically targeted by demons, has been shaking up fright fans on VOD (via DirectTV), and recently, Nispel sat down with FANGORIA to discuss his latest exorcism excursion…

  • “BIG GAME” (FANTASTICA Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    This writer isn’t sure about any of the readers out there, but considering the loud and overloaded action fare that seems to come out of Hollywood more often than not, there’s definitely a hole where the fun, high-concept action/adventure film used to be. You all know the ones: the action pictures you’d so often find the names “Renny Harlin”, “John McTiernan”, “Paul Verhoeven” or “Kathryn Bigelow” attached to and would feature eccentric villains and heart-felt heroes with egos as big as the explosions on display. But with the rise of CGI and the dumbing down of the action movie model, these films have seeming gone dormant… that is with the exception of Jalmari Helander’s BIG GAME, a blast from the past through the eyes of an up-and-coming Finnish director.

  • FANGO Flashback: “NOMADS” (1986)

    ,,

    The horror genre has a long track record of being a jumping-off point for the careers of many actors and directors. Before helming classic films such as THE GODFATHER and APOCALYPSE NOW, legendary filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola got his start directing Roger Corman-produced horror features such as THE TERROR and DEMENTIA 13.  George Clooney got one of his earliest feature film roles in RETURN TO HORROR HIGH, and before he’d go on to direct blockbusters, Sam Raimi carved out a legacy as a master of horror that began with EVIL DEAD. And for future action heavyhitter John McTiernan, his career as a director began with a trippy little tale of terror called NOMADS.
