    Trailer: “RIGOR MORTIS” looks a bloody beautiful vampire film from Hong Kong

    RIGOR MORTIS, the directorial debut of Juno Mak, who previously starred in and wrote the harrowing REVENGE: A LOVE STORY, is taking a crack at resurrecting the Jiangshi, or hopping vampire. Popularized in 80s Hong Kong cinema like ENCOUNTERS OF THE SPOOKY KIND and MR. VAMPIRE, the creature of Chinese legend has often been cinematically a device of comedy. Mak, however, looks to be pushing something stark and stunning.

    Blu-ray Review: “STOKER”, A Fantastic Coming-of-Age Film

    A special breed, the best coming-of-age films are awash in cinematic power that evoke visceral remembrance of adolescence and a time when every emotion was true elation, the most fluttering of butterflies or absolutely gut-wrenching. It’s in adolescence when everything feels a matter of life and death, making this extremity of feeling ripe for exploration through genre. In that sense, and in many others, Park Chan-wook’s first English language feature STOKER is perfect. It’s lead, the young India (Mia Wasikowska) on the cusp of womanhood, navigating a journey of heightened senses, family mystery and eventual murder, is a warped, lurid portrait of coming-of-age. She faces loss, of both a loved one and an idol, and gains herself in the process. In the end, India boasts a sense of self, is assured of her body and is equipped with a thrilling drive.

    An Actor’s Best Friend, Debbie Rochon remembers canine co-star Valkrie

    Beloved genre veteran and longtime Fango friend/contributor Debbie Rochon just recently lost a dear friend and co-star. Here, she pays tribute to Valkrie Athena Liquori, a dog like no other. 

    Movie star canines have featured prominently in some of my personal fave cult and horror movies. Named simply ‘Dog’, THE ROAD WARRIOR featured man’s best friend as the last trustworthy companion Max had left in this world. As it turns out, he was right. The dog was played by an adopted shelter pup and trained to perform in the film. Because the sound of the engines upset him—and in one incident, caused him to relieve himself in the car—he was fitted with special earplugs. His breed was a Blue Heeler, sometimes also referred to as an Australian Cattle Dog. ‘Dog’ went to live with Dale and Max Aspin after the movie wrapped. Max was the stunt coordinator for the film, and his wife Dale was the animal handler and trainer, as well as being a stunt performer herself.
