  • TIFF Q&A: Director Bruce McDonald talks “HELLIONS”

    ,

    After taking break from the genre after 2008’s cult classic PONTYPOOL, Bruce McDonald has returned to horror with his new Halloween themed feature HELLIONS and this writer couldn’t be more excited to check it out when it premieres at TIFF later this week. The film stars Chloe Rose (DARKNET), Rossif Sutherland (DEAD BEFORE DAWN) and fan favorite Robert Patrick in a tale written by Pascal Trottier.  The official synopsis states “A teenager must survive a Halloween night from Hell when malevolent trick-or-treaters come knocking at her door”. We visited Bruce on set on a chilly fall day way back in 2013 to learn more about the project…

  • Q&A: Paul Tobin and Juan Ferreyra talk Dark Horse Comics’ “COLDER”

    ,,

    As any horror hound might tell you, Dark Horse Comic’s COLDER has taken the comic world by storm. From its first titular cover of the lead character jamming his hand under his facial skin to the coveted Eisner nomination of 2014 for Best Limited Series, it has been the comic on horror fans lips. COLDER focuses on ex-mental patient Dean Thomas who has the power to go into a person’s mind and cure their problems, but it comes at the cost of lowering his internal temperature. Fighting his own demons while keeping others at bay, he soon finds himself among villains who want to destroy everything he built. FANGORIA recently sat down with creators Paul Tobin and Juan Ferreyra as they explain what is driving their own creative insanity…

  • “THE HIVE” (Film Review)

    ,,

    THE HIVE is a bit of a difficult film to review, at least for this writer. Not because it’s a difficult movie to understand- which it’s not- nor is it because it’s bad- which it’s definitely not. In fact, THE HIVE is, for the most part, an excellent film, and the kind horror audiences should be embracing considering that it’s an original, R-rated contagion movie that has some genuinely interesting and scary concepts at play. But the reason THE HIVE is difficult to review is because the film treads very lightly with its originality, as the film gets concerningly close to many of its very apparent influences.

  • Event Report: GWAR-B-Q 2015!

    ,,,

    Truth be told, I never sleep well the night before a big trip. That childlike spirit of excitement offers a dose of unrelenting restlessness and next thing you know, it’s 2 hours before you have leave and you haven’t slept a wink. And while most times I’d be chastising myself for being dumb enough to not have invested in a sleeping pill or the like, this time I gave myself a little more leeway: I don’t often get out to music festivals, and the last time I did was the first (and unfortunately last) time I had seen our upcoming headliner: GWAR.

  • Pittsburgh’s ScareHouse Haunted Attraction Adds “TRICK ‘R TREAT”, “KRAMPUS” Haunts!

    ,

    Outside of Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights, there’s few places that fright fans can go to find officially licensed haunts based on their favorite cinematic properties. In fact, most haunted attractions have to put their legally safe spins on our favorite horror icons, like “hockey mask killer” or “creepy burn knife man”, and one can’t necessarily blame them considering how competitive the haunt game can be. However, Pittsburgh, PA’s ScareHouse has gone above and beyond the call to action by partnering with mega-production house Legendary to bring two of Michael Dougherty’s petrifying properties to their interactive attractions: KRAMPUS and TRICK ‘R TREAT!

  • “AQUARIUS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    When AQUARIUS debuted earlier this year, positing itself as a genre-friendly lead-in to HANNIBAL’s third season, this writer took a shine to the show. It wasn’t the greatest procedural on television, but the characters were interesting, the writing went into curious directions and the Manson element brought a sense of perpetual horror to the show. But nevertheless, there always felt something off about AQUARIUS upon broadcast, almost as if the show was struggling to find its voice even though there appeared to be a great amount of creative freedom on display. However, upon revisiting the show on Blu-ray, where every episode is now offered in extended, unrated editions, and suddenly, it’s almost like watching an entirely new show, as AQUARIUS is clearly a premium cable show stuck in the format of a broadcast network program.
