    “THE CONJURING” (Movie Review)

    Real, palpable dread. In THE CONJURING, it is thick and ever present, and takes on many forms. It is a doll, it is a door. It is a hand clap, it is a spirit. It is malevolence in the air, it is the chill from a dark basement. It is accursed land. It is, eventually, the reveal of director James Wan’s full capabilities as a master of horror. Like INSIDIOUS before it—although miles ahead of that already splendid exercise in shoulder shudders—THE CONJURING is special because Wan, as a filmmaker is.

    First Look: Photos from Old Gods’ Bloody Video, “From Beyond”

    Among Fango’s long roster of past and current contributors lies musician and now aspiring filmmaker, Jeff Tuttle.

Fronting the noise-punk outfit finds Tuttle working through not only his macabre fandom, but the themes and concepts at play both in genre and life. With their first full length, STYLIZIED VIOLENCE on the horizon (a self-titled EP was out in 2011), the band has also afforded him the ability to marry visual and sonic blast in the splattered, strange clip for “From Beyond.”

    Check out the neat IMAX-exclusive “PACIFIC RIM” print

    Midnight movies are an experience. Whether it’s a repertory, one-time only deal, or a Thursday night before a major release hits, there’s a special energy that sets it apart. There’s also a special energy that sets IMAX apart (from say, 3D) and it seems the folks behind the enormous screen know that. Over the last year, they’ve introduced exclusive posters for midnight shows and the fans willing and exciting to come out and be the first to see highly anticipated films. Often, the prints are really good too! And that’s very much including this one for Guillermo del Toro’s Kaiju vs. Jaeger epic PACIFIC RIM.

    Chris Alexander Remembers RICHARD MATHESON, 1926-2013

    The great Richard Matheson has passed.

    The man who invented the template for what would evolve – with some un-authorized assistance from George A. Romero – into the modern zombie and who re-invented what a vampire could be with his 1954 novella I AM LEGEND, defined the parameters of dark fantasy fiction, working in all mediums and developing a style and evolving thematic arc that carried into his final writings.
