  • “THE HIVE” (Film Review)

    ,,

    THE HIVE is a bit of a difficult film to review, at least for this writer. Not because it’s a difficult movie to understand- which it’s not- nor is it because it’s bad- which it’s definitely not. In fact, THE HIVE is, for the most part, an excellent film, and the kind horror audiences should be embracing considering that it’s an original, R-rated contagion movie that has some genuinely interesting and scary concepts at play. But the reason THE HIVE is difficult to review is because the film treads very lightly with its originality, as the film gets concerningly close to many of its very apparent influences.

  • Event Report: GWAR-B-Q 2015!

    ,,,

    Truth be told, I never sleep well the night before a big trip. That childlike spirit of excitement offers a dose of unrelenting restlessness and next thing you know, it’s 2 hours before you have leave and you haven’t slept a wink. And while most times I’d be chastising myself for being dumb enough to not have invested in a sleeping pill or the like, this time I gave myself a little more leeway: I don’t often get out to music festivals, and the last time I did was the first (and unfortunately last) time I had seen our upcoming headliner: GWAR.

  • Pittsburgh’s ScareHouse Haunted Attraction Adds “TRICK ‘R TREAT”, “KRAMPUS” Haunts!

    ,

    Outside of Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights, there’s few places that fright fans can go to find officially licensed haunts based on their favorite cinematic properties. In fact, most haunted attractions have to put their legally safe spins on our favorite horror icons, like “hockey mask killer” or “creepy burn knife man”, and one can’t necessarily blame them considering how competitive the haunt game can be. However, Pittsburgh, PA’s ScareHouse has gone above and beyond the call to action by partnering with mega-production house Legendary to bring two of Michael Dougherty’s petrifying properties to their interactive attractions: KRAMPUS and TRICK ‘R TREAT!

  • “AQUARIUS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    When AQUARIUS debuted earlier this year, positing itself as a genre-friendly lead-in to HANNIBAL’s third season, this writer took a shine to the show. It wasn’t the greatest procedural on television, but the characters were interesting, the writing went into curious directions and the Manson element brought a sense of perpetual horror to the show. But nevertheless, there always felt something off about AQUARIUS upon broadcast, almost as if the show was struggling to find its voice even though there appeared to be a great amount of creative freedom on display. However, upon revisiting the show on Blu-ray, where every episode is now offered in extended, unrated editions, and suddenly, it’s almost like watching an entirely new show, as AQUARIUS is clearly a premium cable show stuck in the format of a broadcast network program.

  • “HIGH-RISE” (TIFF Film Review)

    ,,

    Through his work in films like KILL LIST, SIGHTSEERS, and A FIELD IN ENGLAND, director Ben Wheatley has established himself as a twisted cinematic force. Armed with a distinctly cynical outlook, a dark wit, and a knack for unexpectedly graphic gut-punches, Wheatley delivers comedies and dramas that have the visceral shock impact of horror. Thus far, Wheatley has typically played in the realist realm that earned him comparisons to the likes of Mike Leigh (only with a blood-soaked streak); however, his latest feature is a different beast entirely. Based on a novel by CRASH’s J.G. Ballard, HIGH-RISE unfolds like a cinematic nightmare. It’s a deliberately alienating experience designed to thrust audiences into a nastily satirical vision of society and leave them in a state of disturbed awe.

  • Exclusive Clip: “SLEEPY HOLLOW” Blu-ray Clip Brings Practical Life to The Pied Piper

    ,

    Following the loss of THE FOLLOWING, HANNIBAL, and CONSTANTINE all sadly out of the picture, horror programming on network television has been dwindling. However, the shows that remain are still quite strong, with SLEEPY HOLLOW (starring Chainsaw Award-nominee Nicole Beharie) offering a second season last year that was met with stronger reviews and solid ratings. Now, with the third season on the horizon and the second season hitting Blu-ray tomorrow as a part of Fox Home Entertainment’s Holiday Collection, FANGORIA has an exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette clip from the High Def set that shows off how they achieved one of the show’s most eerie antagonists: The Pied Piper!

  • Q&A: Actor Gethin Anthony talks Charles Manson and “AQUARIUS”, Season One

    ,

    There’s few real-life figures that must be as intimidating to portray as notorious cult leader Charles Manson, whose psychological and physical torment lead to some of the most graphic murders of the 20th Century. Yet few tackle the chilling character with the gusto of one-time GAME OF THRONES star Gethin Anthony, who embodies Manson in all of his wicked ways on NBC’s intense and dark series, AQUARIUS. With AQUARIUS now making its way to home video, now with more violence, sex and foul language that was cut from broadcast, FANGORIA caught up with the versatile actor to talk Manson, music and the grim eventualities that await AQUARIUS…
