    “PSYCHO II & III” (Scream Factory Blu-ray Reviews)

    Recently, the AVClub posted a list of 1983′s “lousy” sequels, which (justifiably) pointed out that one year gave us JAWS 3-D, THE STING II, STAYIN’ ALIVE—sort of a who’s who of notoriously bad follow-ups.  However, they inexplicably included PSYCHO II (while leaving out Amityville 3-D!), which was a head scratcher. By most accounts, this was a remarkably good (some say great) sequel that deftly jumped two incredible hurdles.  One being time; it had been 23 years since the first film had broken so much ground in the genre, and thus the younger audiences that made horror such a lucrative endeavor in the early 80s might not even know about it.  The other, of course, was the lack of one Alfred Hitchcock. Who would dare attempt to follow the master?

    “COHERENCE” (Fantastic Fest Movie Review)

    Here’s a tip for slightly sadistic event planners seeking to liven up yet another humdrum middle-aged dinner party: Pencil the soirée in for the same night a reality-refracting, modern convenience-decimating, quantum physics-substantiating comet is set to pass overhead and watch the revelers plunge into a paradox-ridden puzzle of an evening they’ll never, ever forget.

  • GOREZONE Too Hot for Apple and Android!

    FANGORIA just learned that our recently revived GOREZONE—FANGO’s more sanguinary and saucy sister magazine—is too hot for Apple and Android! As with every FANGORIA magazine and special edition issue, we submitted GOREZONE #28, the sell-through only return of the mag after a 20-year sleep,  to our App store to be purchased for online consumption. Alas, it was rejected by the powers that be for being too explicit.

    “GRAND PIANO” (Fantastic Fest Movie Review)

    It is not rare to find a director appropriating, or recalling, the stylistic flair of Alfred Hitchcock, Brian De Palma or Dario Argento. Just at Fantastic Fest alone, we’ve encountered director Mark Hartley employing a great deal of split diopter throughout his remake of 1978’s PATRICK. What is rare, however, is to find such influence utilized in clever, thematically appropriate and more breathtaking than endearing manner. As you may expect, this is leading to the arrival of such a film: Eugenio Mira’s GRAND PIANO, an utter joy of high concept, artfully composed and absolutely thrilling pure cinema.

    “WITCHING & BITCHING” (Movie Review)

    Álex de la Iglesia’s last towering horror effort, THE LAST CIRCUS, was an intensely grim (but not entirely devoid of humor), wildly bizarre look at a country he loves and the struggles that threaten to tear it apart. Being the masterful genre filmmaker he is, WITCHING & BITCHING similarly has a fair share on its mind, but on the flipside is a giddy, delightful supernatural romp, probing the way men and women treat each other.

    Red Band Trailer Lays Out How the “HELLBENDERS” Roll

    JT Petty, the filmmaker behind fantastic, and serious-minded horror western THE BURROWERS has turned his attention to something of a rowdy horror comedy in HELLBENDERS. The tale of the Augustine Interfaith Order of Hellbound Saints and their aim to break bad so that they may attract possessing demons and set the evil straight, looks like shitty attitude-boasting, New York fun.
