    “ARMY OF DARKNESS / REANIMATOR” (Comic Review)

    H.P. Lovecrafts HERBERT WEST—REANIMATOR has been adapted or referenced in a dozen different ways, from cartoons to video games to movies, and most famously being the basis for what is arguably one of the greatest horror flicks of the 80s, RE-ANIMATOR. With its shambling corpses and looming horror of the unknown, and an enigmatic, mysterious author to boot, it’s easy to understand why so many creators would be attracted to put their own spin on the classic tale. ARMY OF DARKNESS/REANMIATOR is the latest addition, this time putting EVIL DEAD’s smart-mouthed, chain-sawed leading man Ash in the shoes of the story’s anonymous narrator as he teams up with mad scientist Herbert West. Sticking close to the original Lovecraftian version, this comic is less of a re-telling and more of a garnish to the tale of terror.

    “EVIL DEAD 2″ Won’t Come from Remake Director Alvarez

    EVIL DEAD 2013 was immensely divisive. Arriving with an anticipation few contemporary horror films have garnered, the result is a total gorefest, delightfully achieved with mostly practical FX.

Months on, following plenty of buzz talk about crossing the reboot’s timeline with the original series and Sam Raimi helming an ARMY OF DARKNESS 2, it seems the redo’s follow-up has stalled.

    Exclusive Music Video: Dance Hall Pimps’ “The Dead Don’t Walk”

    As a horror fan myself, there’s few things that are as great as seeing fellow fright fans embrace their love for the genre and apply it to their other passions. Sometimes, that fandom begets filmmakers, who seek to become the next George Romero or John Carpenter. Sometimes, that fandom produces musicians, who apply their love for horror in the aesthetics of their art and lyrics of their songs. And in times like this, those influences combine to create something truly unique and fear-film-friendly.

    This past weekend on Saturday, September 26th, in a rain, wind and cold battered Toronto, FANGORIA’s Canadian component had its bloody mitts in a double shot of connected events. Local legend Thea Munster once more assembled her ghouls for the official Toronto Zombie Walk and despite the near biblical weather, thousands of shambling rabble rousers in every class of cannibal corpse costume stumbled in to join the fun.
