    Whether it’s man-eating crocodiles, dream demons or half-human vampire slayers, actor Dominic Purcell has faced his fair share of frightening foes over the course of his career. Of course, fans of the bulking actor wouldn’t be surprised, as Purcell has proven himself a versatile character actor, capable of both colorful supporting performances and stoic leading man status. In his latest project, the gory and over-the-top fantasy epic VIKINGDOM (now on DVD and VOD from Epic Pictures), Purcell mixes a bit of both worlds to provide a badass, sword-wielding warrior that’s different from your average, molar-grinding action hero. Purcell talked to FANGORIA about his new film, his inspired past performances and the horror role he found to be truly terrifying…

    Filmmaker Dante Tomaselli (pictured, creator of TORTURE CHAMBER, SATAN’S PLAYGROUND and others) recently released SCREAM IN THE DARK, his first standalone audio CD.

    Bill Paxton to adapt Lansdale’s “THE BOTTOMS”

    Ever since his strong feature debut, the religious horror film FRAILTY, genre fans have long wondered when Bill Paxton would return to direct another eerie outing (he helmed THE GREATEST GAME EVER PLAYED in 2005). Lo and behold, the time has finally come. Paxton is reteaming with FRAILTY scribe Brent Hanley for an adaptation of Joe Lansdale’s THE BOTTOMS, a racially-charged horror story that follows two Southern children who discover a mutilated body, and the string of murders that follow that may or may not be the work of a local legend named “The Goat Man.”

    Trailer: Marc Carreté’s Exorcism Road Movie, “ASMODEXIA”

    It’s thrilling when a trailer is able to convey stark mood like ASMODEXIA’s is.

It seems their destinations provide more than a few chills.

    Many Ways Through “A FIELD IN ENGLAND”: A Q&A with Ben Wheatley

    Like his work before it, Ben Wheatley’s A FIELD IN ENGLAND is a singular experience. It is wholly enrapturing and unexpected on first view, and subsequently unfurls upon return. Presented as a film of “magic and madness,” it is also one of many possibilities, from vastly different interpretation (as you’ll see below) to whether or not one will view it as informed by everything the director’s created until now. For those that do, it seems absolutely a culmination, one that allows the overspill of mystical air and dark energy that’s hung over, both heavily and not, DOWN TERRACE, KILL LIST and SIGHTSEERS.
