  • FANGO Flashback: “LAND OF THE DEAD”

    ,,

    In a world where terms such as “zombie apocalypse” and “Z-Day” rest comfortably within the mainstream vernacular, it’s nearly impossible to imagine a time when the shambling, biting corpses that we know and love/loathe weren’t a common presence in the horror landscape. Though the earliest depictions of zombies in cinema can be traced back to 1932’s WHITE ZOMBIE, many place the birth of the modern zombie in the 1968 black-and-white classic NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, and consider the film’s director, George A. Romero, the godfather of the zombie subgenre.

  • “THE UNWANTED” (DVD Review)

    ,,

    Writer/director Bret Wood’s moody microbudget melodrama THE UNWANTED (out now on Blu-ray from Kino-Lorber) has been met with general critical indifference since its release. Too glacial in its pacing, too light on hard sex and violence for many horror movie hounds and too modestly financed to thrill those looking for a glossy arthouse piece, THE UNWANTED is certainly an anomaly and doesn’t fit comfortably anywhere, really. That, of course, is part of its fascination; it’s a film that goes against convention and has a strange power that is hard to shake.

  • “COP CAR” (Fantasia Movie Review)

    ,,,

    COP CAR, in which two preteen boys steal a cruiser from a sheriff who’s very, very anxious to get it back, is not the kind of movie you’d get from a studio taking on this premise (shenanigans ensue!), nor is it a ruthless, transgressive indie nightmare (THE HITCHER with kids!). Rather, it derives its tension from the matter-of-fact way it plays out the story’s inevitable developments.

  • Event Report: The 16th Annual Tromadance Film Festival!

    ,

    It’s a hot, humid Friday afternoon in Brooklyn, NY, with a surprising amount of available street parking as this writer made his way towards the 16th Annual Tromadance Film Festival. The free event, celebrating its second year at The Paper Box in the heart of Brooklyn’s industrial district, has gone from schlock-centric self-promotion to a legitimate film festival in its own right, especially considering the top notch line-up of features this year. And despite lacking the glitz and glamour of other film festivals, Tromadance thrives on the independent spirit, gracious venues and enthusiastic fans that showed up in force.
