  • Tall Man, Big Heart: A Tribute to Angus Scrimm

    ,,

    The flood of online tributes to the late, great Angus Scrimm (real name Lawrence Rory Guy), who passed away at age 89 on Saturday night, all say the same thing: Angus was the nicest guy in horror and a true gentleman. He made everyone he ever met feel special. Of all the celebrities I crossed paths with during my long FANGORIA tenure, Angus ranks as one of the few who became a true friend.

  • FANTASTICA Presents: Existing with Non-Existence within “ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD”

    ,,

    In Tom Stoppard’s now 25-year-old film ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD, the playwright-turned-director does something precious few have ever done: he eschews the format of reality completely. Comparable to say Quentin Dupieux’s equally undefinable dark comedy RUBBER, ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN has no defined rules, no defined roles and coasts along on the oblivious nature of oblivion. And thanks to that attitude, Stoppard does Shakespeare by the way of Gilliam, offering something where the very world where the film exists is so unpredictable that there’s no way of knowing exactly what is at stake, a notion that is simultaneously hilarious, bizarre, tragic, terrifying and amazing.

  • FANGO Flashback: “NIGHTWATCH” (1997)

    ,,

    Following the critical and commercial success of SE7EN, Hollywood was looking for any and all fucked-up serial killer thrillers that could ride on that film’s coattails. With films such as FEAR, KISS THE GIRLS, 8MM and more popping out of the woodwork, finding the fetishistic depravity of possessive serial killers became the M.O. for the genre, with studios looking everywhere for dependable inspiration. And it is likely that search that brought Ole Bornedal to Hollywood to remake his film NIGHTWATCH, a unique, stylish psychological horror-thriller that added a Hitchcockian craftsmanship to otherwise dour, provocative subject matter.

Luckily, FANGORIA has kept our ears to the constantly changing floor for nearly 40 years now, keeping fright fans up to date with the latest in the world of horror.
