  • FANGO Flashback: “THE DEAD ZONE” (1983)

    ,,

    When Cronenberg comes up in discussion among horror fans, THE DEAD ZONE doesn’t get quite as much attention as Cronenberg’s more esoteric and bizarre offerings. In fact, THE DEAD ZONE is almost a perpetually overlooked title among the director’s impressive oeuvre, despite being as scary as any film the Canadian Master of Horror has ever crafted. Even more to his credit, Cronenberg crafted something truly unsettling and eerie while effectively visualizing the voice of Stephen King, who, at the time, was a bona fide horror powerhouse with a legion of loyal fans.

  • “FEBRUARY” (TIFF Film Review)

    ,,

    As chilly as the title suggests and surprisingly subtly mounted, FEBRUARY is a disorienting and bizarre twist on some familiar horror tropes. The first feature by Osgood Perkins (son of PSYCHO icon Anthony Perkins) takes a few concepts that will be familiar to many genre aficionados, then twists them through odd narrative knots and laces them with unexpected dramatic weight until the film begins to feel like something new. It’s tough to say how strong this story would be without it’s unconventional telling,  but thankfully, things turn out devilishly well as it is.

  • FANTASTICA Presents: Actor Michael Emerson talks “PERSON OF INTEREST”

    ,

    Being a part of a hit TV show sometimes can be a very strange thing, especially as episodes grow over time. Sometimes, looking back at the first season of a television show and the most recent season is like day and night, with such radical changes in tone and character helping to keep things fresh and exciting. Yet that’s not a bad thing in the case of PERSON OF INTEREST, a series that has progressed from crime procedural to outright sci-fi thriller, and luckily for newcomers and fans alike, you can track the evolution of the show on WGN America’s “Prime Crime” line-up, in which traces the show from its humble beginnings every Monday at 7 p.m. FANGORIA recently caught up PERSON OF INTEREST star Michael Emerson about the show’s epic 90-episode (and counting) run as well as the jump from mysterious figure to sci-fi mastermind…

  • Q&A: Actress Grace Phipps on “SOME KIND OF HATE”

    ,

    With many of the showstoppers from the 2015 Stanley Film Festival now reaching theaters and VOD, the one film this writer is ready to see unleashed upon the horror community is Adam Egypt Mortimer’s feature directorial debut, SOME KIND OF HATE. A supernaturally-driven slasher that cleverly questions preconceived notions about depression, bullying and revenge, SOME KIND OF HATE was among FANGO’s favorites of the festival. With the film raring to show its bloody face this Friday, FANGORIA caught up with actress Grace Phipps- who plays one of HATE’s most troubled teens- to talk about the shoot, her complicated character and what fright fare she’s involved in next…

  • Stream to Scream: “ZOMBEAVERS”

    ,,

    When it comes to a film like Jordan Rubin’s ZOMBEAVERS, where do you start but with the title? Obviously, many who see the film will immediately expect FULL MOON level camp at best, especially since the world of Syfy Originals has propelled animal horror into dull parody territory over the past decade. However, don’t let the punny, funny title fool you: ZOMBEAVERS is a full-fledged monster movie, with some genuinely awesome FX work as well as a firm sense of self-awareness that never derails the narrative. And furthermore, rather than desperately attempting to be a throwback or be too referential, ZOMBEAVERS decides to tell an original creature feature story that also works as an irreverent contemporary horror comedy in its own right.

  • 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…
