    “ON LOCATION IN BLAIRSTOWN: THE MAKING OF FRIDAY THE 13TH” (Book Review)

    Author David Grove is a FRIDAY THE 13th superfan who admits such with pride in the introduction to his latest effort, the hefty and illuminating ON LOCATION IN BLAIRSTOWN: THE MAKING OF FRIDAY THE 13th (available now from Author Mike/Dark Ink books). Grove has penned plenty of genre-oriented tomes in his day, including 2004’s well-received MAKING FRIDAY THE 13th: THE LEGEND OF CAMP BLOOD, and the existence of his latest poses the question as to how he could ever best the scope of that well-reviewed initial immersion into the Voorhees universe. the answer is that, instead of trying, Grove focuses here exclusively on producer/director Sean S. Cunningham’s first stab at the slasher franchise exclusively, and does so affectionately – yet objectively -  and even stops to muckrake a bit of choice gossip for those that care about such things.

    Win an “ONLY GOD FORGIVES” Prize Pack!

    Oh, do we have something for you. Having broken through with the ultra-cool neo(n)-noir DRIVE, the very singular director Nicolas Winding Refn could’ve easily gone a more crowd-pleasing path with his follow-up and ninth feature film ONLY GOD FORGIVES. Carrying over one of DRIVE’s most appealing aspects, Ryan Gosling, he instead crafted a sort of nightmare world, where the bad behavior of bad people is no longer a slow motion seductive, but garish, surreal and unsettling. The ensuing dialogue-light, transgressive journey of harsh vengeance—guided by a leading man who’s largely ineffectual and an incredible performance by Kristin Scott Thomas as his silver tongued, horrifying, warped mother—is one pushy, weird delight. And FANGORIA is happy to reveal that we have a prize pack including the film on Blu-ray, one copy of the great Cliff Martinez soundtrack, one shirt and copies of the character posters for a lucky reader.

    A new vision of HELLRAISER, one that aims to do justice to both Clive Barker’s original novella THE HELLBOUND HEART and the fantastic film on which its based, is long overdue. Stuck in some form of development or another at Dimension Films for years now, the proposed remake now has both a writer and some optimism attached. That writer? Barker himself.
