  • Slamdance Film Festival 2016 Selections Announced!

    ,

    What once began as a reaction to the snobbish, anti-genre mentality of prestigious film festivals in the ‘90s, the Park City-based Slamdance Film Festival has become a legitimate force of its own over the years. Over its 21-year legacy, Slamdance has hosted the likes of Trey Parker, Christopher Nolan, Lena Dunham, Jared Hess and Seth Gordon, and most recently debuted Scream Factory’s BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS as well as 2015 festival favorite BODY from Dan Berk and Robert Olsen. Now, the festival- which only selects films from first-time filmmakers made for under $1 million- has announced its 2016 line-up exclusively via Variety, presenting bold, largely star-free fare from around the world.

  • Exclusive Q&A: Director Jeff Lieberman talks 4K “BLUE SUNSHINE” Screenings & Blu-ray

    ,,

    For those unfamiliar, Jeff Lieberman’s BLUE SUNSHINE is the rare kind of horror film that redefines the term “cult classic.” As a film about LSD that, 10 years later, causes its users to go completely bald and commit senseless acts of bloody murder, BLUE SUNSHINE needs to be seen to be believed. And while the film had been a bit of a lost treasure among fright fans for a while, the film is currently taking revival houses by storm with a brand new 4K transfer.

  • Q&A: Actor Joey Kern talks “BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS”

    ,

    As fans of horror comedy might know, Joey Kern is not unfamiliar to the subgenre. After a memorable supporting turn in Eli Roth’s debut fright flick, CABIN FEVER, Kern has popped up in a pair of horror comedies in the past few years, including ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE UNDEAD and, most recently, in Scream Factory’s original release, BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS. In BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS, Kern hops into a role that suits his comedic sensibilities, playing the slacker best friend who is among the first to notice that his office building is being overrun by vampires. Recently, Kern spoke to FANGORIA about BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS, working with Dr. God and the side of the horror genre he tries most to avoid…

  • NYC Horror Film Fest Review: “ALL I NEED”

    ,,

    When a film decides to employ a big twist in its third-act, the film by proxy makes it more difficult for the content of the first two acts to stand on their own merit. Like it or not, that twist will polarize most viewers depending on how receptive to the twist they are, if they understand the twist, or if they saw the twist coming at all. And while the bold twist that ALL I NEED takes in its third act with the subtle drop of a name and philosophy is certainly unpredictable, it’s recontextualizing of the action that came before it makes it perhaps more problematic than one might like.

So it’s with that adventurous attitude that our fearless four sit down with actor Oscar Nunez (THE OFFICE, THE 33) to explore foreign horror on this week’s eerie edition of MONSTER PARTY!

  • FANGO Flashback: “CONSTANTINE” (2005)

    ,,

    To be honest, Francis Lawrence’s CONSTANTINE is a film that gets an undeserved bad rap. At the time of its release, it didn’t fare very well with critics or fans of the HELLBLAZER comic series, many of whom harped on the film’s use of CGI and the casting of Keanu Reeves as the title character. However, time can certainly be a very curious thing, and in CONSTANTINE, not only is this a very strong genre effort- almost a modern equivalent to NIGHTBREED- but could perhaps be Lawrence’s crowning cinematic achievement as a filmmaker.
