  • Stream to Scream: “HABIT” (1995)

    ,,

    When a name like “Larry Fessenden” comes to mind, many different people can think of many different things. To some, Fessenden is a virtuoso character actor, slipping into small yet great (and often charismatic) roles into a myriad of horror projects, whether it be a lead role in Glenn McQuaid’s I SELL THE DEAD or a scene-stealing cameo on an episode of THE STRAIN. To others, Fessenden is a miniature magnate of independent horror, with his Glass Eye Pix production company helping launch the careers of Ti West, Jim Mickle and many more. But what Fessenden should be best known as is one of the best independent directors in the genre today, and an excellent example of that reputation is his 1995 psychosexual vampire film, HABIT.

  • Exclusive Q&A: Lloyd Kaufman talks Tromadance and “RETURN TO NUKE ‘EM HIGH” release

    ,

    Unfiltered, honest and completely off the wall, there’s little question as to how Troma reflects the ideals and personality of the company’s fearless leader, Lloyd Kaufman. Aside from being a champion of independent film for over 40 years, Kaufman has also helped redefine the boundaries of genre filmmaking, implementing the splattery aesthetics of horror films and the raunchy humor of ‘80s sex comedies into genuinely satirical material. And it’s that love for counterculture and the brilliance of conveying high-brow social commentary into low-brow midnight movies that fuels this year’s Tromadance Film Festival, which hosts one of the most impressive line-ups in its 16-year legacy in 2015.

  • Q&A: Josh Leonard on “THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN”, “BATES MOTEL”

    From HATCHET to TRUE DETECTIVE to BATES MOTEL, actor Josh Leonard has kept one foot in the horror genre since launching his career as one of the trio of “filmmakers” from THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT. But Leonard has not had many opportunities like that of Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN remake, which posited the actor into a much more surreal project than he’s experienced in the genre. With the film now on the home video market, FANGORIA spoke to Leonard about his ill-fated genre characters, his stint on BATES MOTEL and entering THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN…

    ,

    Lately, one of the most appreciated revivals in the horror genre has been the full-on return to aesthetics of the ‘80s.
