    ,,

    Over the course of 36 years (and counting), the readership of FANGORIA Magazine have been united over a mutual love for all things horror.

  • Exclusive Q&A: Doug Jones talks “THE STRAIN”, “CRIMSON PEAK”, “FALLING SKIES” and more…

    ,

    To the sci-fi and horror crowd, Doug Jones could very well be classified as geek royalty. The frequent Guillermo del Toro collaborator has been a presence in the genre for nearly thirty years, and has become synonymous as being one of the most versatile and impressive creature performers in the business. And for Jones, that mantle doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon, as the actor is now busier than ever: with TNT’s FALLING SKIES currently in its final season, Jones has taken up a recurring role on FX’s THE STRAIN while appearing in a slew of genre features, including the impending del Toro joint CRIMSON PEAK.

An impressive director in his own right, Yuzna’s productions are completely representative of his reckless imagination, maniacal tonal shifts and unadulterated love for practical effects, and not nearly enough of his films are given the retrospective love that they deserve.

On the other hand, it has also provided some of the most hilariously inane and obvious rip-offs of all time, often times approached with a go-for-broke attitude. One-time video nasty CONTAMINATION definitely finds itself in the latter category, but once seeing the film, there’s little question as to why the fright flick managed to get the Arrow Blu-ray treatment: it’s next level bonkers, and it offer neither explanation or apologies for its insanity.
