  • Test Your Horror Knowledge with the March 2015 Dead Right Horror Trivia Quiz!

    ,,

    Last week, FANGORIA’s monthly Dead Right Horror Trivia Game in Los Angeles was once again a tense battle between industry experts. Team “Zombie Redneck Torture Family” prevailed taking home plenty of sweet prizing including Blu-rays from Scream Factory and Synapse, as well as a very rare GRUDGE 2 snow globe. The evening was hosted by FANGORIA’s Rebekah McKendry along with genre director and trivia buff Dave Parker (THE HILLS RUN RED and the upcoming TALES OF HALLOWEEN anthology).  The duo melted minds with rounds that included PHANTASM, Famous Demises, Roger Corman Films, the ALIEN Quadrilogy, and Last Lines from Horror Movies.

  • Schwarzenegger’s Zombie Drama “MAGGIE” Finally Gets a Trailer!

    ,

    Personally speaking, with THE WALKING DEAD being as big as it was, I can’t remember the last time a feature length zombie film has drawn such curiosity and anticipation as Henry Hobson’s MAGGIE. Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin in a film that looks markedly different than most undead terror tales, the film was famously pulled from last year’s Toronto Film Festival after being acquired by Lionsgate, and leaving the film to premiere at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. And now, fright fans have their first chance to see what MAGGIE is all about, with the trailer finally being released earlier today.

  • “THE X-FILES” Re-opened for 6-Episode Event Series in 2016

    ,

    Who knew that when THE X-FILES debuted back in 1993, it was destined to end up becoming a massive hit; a pop culture touchstone for which all genre TV, from supernatural sagas to crime procedurals, would be measured by? The show lasted for nine seasons (and two movies) through its world-building, its ability to sustain suspense, and its amazing feat of parlaying it two stars’ chemistry and sexual tension into being one of the primary curiosities in a show that revolved around uncovering evidence of extraterrestrials and government conspiracies.

  • FANTASTICA Presents: The Circle of Fright

    ,,

    If there’s any singular philosophy that has been proven time and time again, it would be that history does indeed repeat itself. And as much as that philosophy is valid in terms of politics, social dynamics and pop culture as a whole, it’s also very true in cinema, especially in the horror genre. While nostalgia may reign supreme in the horror genre, or at least it has been for the past decade and a half, the new content on both the independent and studio level have largely been inspired by or outright pull from techniques of horror past. And with the constantly changing marketplace that has seen the rise of VOD and streaming, the genre has struggled to figure out what will be the next trend in horror, even despite a glut of imaginative independent ideas by talented filmmakers laying in development hell.

  • “DIGGING UP THE MARROW” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    With most films, especially in the horror genre, it’s always best to go in with as little knowledge as possible as to what’s coming as to prevent entering with unfair expectations. After all, as reviewers, we have an obligation to approach all projects for review with an open mind and as little baggage as possible; we’re champions of cinema, and should always be looking to raise it upon our shoulders than push it under our feet. Yet with some films, such as DIGGING UP THE MARROW, the film is so tied into the filmmaker’s DNA that the overall viewing experience will, somehow, someway, be tampered by one’s take on director/star Adam Green. If you’re a fan, or indifferent, or unknowing of Green’s past work, MARROW will work on many levels, and from this writer’s review some weeks back, the film is both a narrative and technical success for Green and Co. But if you’re actively not a fan of Green, MARROW won’t do much to change that, as Green or Green’s properties are referenced in almost every scene in this film.

  • Flesh and Blood #1: “SEXCULA”

    ,,

    As any fright fan knows, the horror genre has a particularly salacious relationship with sexually explicit content. And while nudity so often goes side by side with decapitated heads and brutal bloodletting, there are also horror filmmakers throughout the years who made an art form out of the human body with an appreciation of our most lurid and lucid desires. And it’s with that macabre mentality in mind that FANGORIA is proud to announce our partnership with Mr. Skin for a brand new NSFW column that looks to provoke our minds as well as our more physical impulses, FLESH AND BLOOD!

  • “R100” (FANTASTICA Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    There are some movies that within the first five minutes, you’re either 100% in or 100% out. And while Hitoshi Matsumoto’s R100 might initially appear like that kind of movie, the incredibly insane, fantastic and hysterically self-aware places the film prove any savvy viewer would be dead wrong. An cinematic genetic cross between John Waters and Neveldine/Taylor, Drafthouse Films has brought R100 to Blu-ray, allowing any daring viewers can take a trip down R100’s bizarre highway of S&M madness in excellent high definition.

  • Q&A: Radco’s Jon Conrad on Environmental Horror Graphic Novel “BAD SUMMER”

    ,,

    In the ever-changing media landscape, it’s no surprise that horror has found a way to dominate oh so many mediums. But while the rise to the top of both the box office and Nielsen ratings was inevitable, it’s been quite interesting to see how horror has developed in the world of graphic novels. Horror comics have been on the rise for the better part of 4 decades at this point, and now, some truly creative, transgressive and terrifying work has been breaking through the waves of pulp terror.
