    Stanley Film Festival ’14: Haunted History and Happenings of The Stanley

    As far as brilliant and appropriate settings go, it’s almost hard to believe The Stanley Film Festival—a horror film festival of screenings and particularly haunting happenings—is only in its second year. This being the first that FANGORIA is attending in an official capacity, both as press and bringing our monthly LA-based Dead Right Horror Trivia Night (co-hosted with Shock Till You Drop), there’s a particular thrill in the air for this writer. A lodge with a storied past, not least of which inspiring one of the most seminal horror stories of our time (THE SHINING), hosting a celebration of the types of tales we admire and pledge allegiance to, feels church-like. It also feels particularly inviting of the Stanley’s ghostly reputation, as if we’re all silently daring ourselves and its deep, historic halls to confront each other. Is this where we go beyond the pale?

    Official Trailer: Surreal Home Invasion Film, “BORGMAN”

    The strange, strange, exhilarating Dutch piece of work BORGMAN has been confirmed for a June release from Drafthouse Films. And so, comes its official U.S. trailer, one that highlights and sells the film’s more frightening, uneasy qualities; hopefully so that its dark comedy and destabilizing, surreal nature hit even harder when seen in full.

    From the FANGORIA Vault: “THEM!”

    Well, fright fans, there’s no denying it: spring is here. April Showers are moistening the shallow graves surrounding the FANGORIA archives, and it’s drawing all sorts of creepy crawlies into our vault. While the occasional stinkbug is more than inconvenient, at least they’re relatively small, unlike the irradiated insects in the 1954 creature feature THEM!

    “WAR OF THE WORLDS: GOLIATH” (Blu-ray Review)

    The decision to review a 3D animated sci-fi epic on this, one of the most celebrated horror movie websites may seem odd, but not to this writer. The film in question, WAR OF THE WORLDS: GOLIATH is a dark, ambitiously designed film whose soul not only belongs to its source—HG Wells literary masterwork—but to Jeff Wayne’s cult phenomenon double LP concept album, 1978’s “Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of War of the Worlds.” That platter was a favorite of this writer during his childhood and remains so. Like that album and its accompanying, graphically illustrated book, WOTW: GOLIATH (which was released overseas some time ago) is evocative, violent and epic in scope, and firmly dependent on sound to deliver its grim thrills.
