  • FANGO Flashback: “BODY BAGS”

    ,,

    For any horror fan, the ‘90s can be a point of contention in the genre’s history. While the decade has produced some truly excellent fright fare, the decade didn’t quite find a popular groove in the genre until the post-SCREAM slasher boom, with many of the successive entries falling upon retrospective scrutiny. Yet potentially most damning about the ‘90s to fright fans was that many of the ‘80s horror masters found themselves marginalized and alienated by the studio system. And it was with that disdain that John Carpenter and Tobe Hooper fled to Showtime to set up shop with for televised terror, only to wind up with one of their most underrated titles to date: BODY BAGS.

  • Q&A: Juliet Landau and Deverill Weekes on Their Vampire Documentary “A PLACE AMONG THE UNDEAD”

    ,,,

    Juliet Landau is probably best known for playing the unhinged vampire Drusilla over multiple seasons of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and ANGEL. Deverill Weekes is an acclaimed cinematographer/photographer with a passion for genre films and TV, as well as prosthetic makeup and its creators. Given their backgrounds, it makes sense that the married Landau and Weekes have embarked on making the feature-length documentary A PLACE AMONG THE UNDEAD, which explores both creators and fans of vampires in literature, cinema, television and other media.

  • “SATANIC PANIC” (Book Review)

    ,,

    The ’80s: The doddering, bobble-headed Reagans, the Iran-Contra affair and the “Just Say No” slogan. New Wave. VHS and Betamax. Hair metal. Amazing genre films with killer practical FX. Any of these things may spring to mind when you think of that decadent decade, but some of you may recall the nefarious psychological plague that flung itself worldwide in search of cults, black magic, sacrifices and other dark rituals, to say nothing of heavy-metal singers testifying before Congress, murder and suicide by way of music and a decidedly devilish influence on horror films—as well as on GERALDO.

  • “THE STEAM MAN #2” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    Every once in a while, a story comes along that seems so completely implausible, a fantasy of the most ridiculous order, that you swear it was written during the ‘70s psychedelic sci-fi pulp movement instead of the modern age of comics. THE STEAM MAN from Dark Horse is one of those titles; a work that proves that imagination has no limit and art has no cinematic budget, exploding onto the page with a mix of steampunk, sci-fi, horror, and western. Currently on its second issue, the work continues where it left off with issue #1, this time focusing not on our heroes hunting in a giant mechanical man but on the vampire that they pursue across the desolate wasteland of their world.

  • Stream to Scream: “KRISTY”

    ,,

    When a movie finds a comfortable spot on a studio shelf, more than likely it’s the sign of a troubled production. Whether it’s a hard film to sell, a tough script to crack or any number of legal issues, there’s rarely a film that comes out unscathed once it’s pulled from a set release date. But a negative preconception doesn’t necessarily equate to a low-quality film, and in the case of KRISTY (a/k/a SATANIC), which was unceremoniously debuted on the Lifetime Channel after nearly 2 years on the shelf, is living proof that not all rocky roads lead to disappointing places.

  • Hammer Horror to Receive The Documentary Treatment from Diabolique Films

    ,

    Before this writer became the Web Content Manager (and later, Web Editor & Managing Editor) for FANGORIA, I had the pleasure of cutting my teeth in the horror journalism world for a macabre magazine entitled Diabolique. Serving as their Web Editor from May to October of 2013, I definitely knew that there would be an interesting future for such a bold, classy publication upon my departure as there simply was no other magazine like it. Lo and behold, Diabolique’s ventures since have included the upcoming return of H.G. Lewis, entitled BLOODMANIA, and now, a full-length feature documentary entitled HAMMER HORROR: THE WARNER BROS YEARS.
