  • Easter Goes to Hell with Chris Sato’s “BUNNY”

    ,

    Holiday-themed horror films are always fun; they appeal to both filmmakers and filmgoers for their ability to distort and subvert social and/or religious traditions and iconography. By now, most major American holidays have either one or various fright films dedicated to transgressing their sacred status: Christmas has SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT, Valentine’s Day has MY BLOODY VALENTINE, and Halloween has that one movie… y’know, the one with the guy who’s got the mask and knife and he’s chasing the babysitter around… I can’t remember the name of it…

  • FANTASTICA Q&A: Bill Plympton talks “CHEATIN'”, Part One

    ,

    As filmmakers change with the times, it’s not often that a classically-informed filmmaker will retain their talents and sensibilities to their fullest extent. This is even more rare when it comes to animation, especially as the production side of things jumps from hand-drawn to digital. But luckily for audiences, Bill Plympton is that rare case, with his unfiltered, mature cinematic voice still in tact for his latest surreal animation outing, CHEATIN’. With CHEATIN’ now in theaters, FANTASTICA recently caught up with Plympton to talk animation, humor and why America needs animation for adults…

  • “BATES MOTEL: Season 3, Episode 4” (TV Review)

    ,,

    After a strong pair of Norman-centric episodes and one weak Norma-and-Romero-centric episode, BATES MOTEL once again kept it’s stride going into its fourth week with a fairly Dylan-centric episode that definitely played to the character’s strength. While everyone does have a chance to shine in this episode, named “Unbreak-able”, there’s much progress made on a narrative and emotional level with Dylan this episode that the oft-brooding character essentially steals the show and offers just the right amount of credible vulnerability. And in doing so, we also get a better insight into Caleb, a character once set up as an underlying antagonist but is now revealing himself to be nothing more than a time capsule of Norma’s maturation.

    ,,

  • “SALEM: Season 2, Episode 1” (TV Review)

    ,,

    To say that the first season of WGN America’s SALEM pushed boundaries with what could be done on a non-premium cable channel is certainly an understatement. Graphic nudity, insane violence and some top tier practical SFX paired with the living and breathing environment of SALEM made the show a simultaneously provocative and compelling horror series, and with each subsequent episode, the show seemed to raise the bar a little higher in terms of storytelling and controversial content. However, in the second season premiere of SALEM, entitled “Cry Havoc”, that bar is cleared and then some, offering some of the most shocking and intriguing moments on the series to date.

  • Q&A: “ROCHE LIMIT” writer Michael Moreci

    ,

    Since FANGORIA last talked to Michael Moreci, he has not only been non-stop creating, but has been making history after recently hooking up with Heavy Metal magazine. While perhaps not as well-known as some of his other horror contemporaries, if his work is any indication, he’s not far from being a recognizable name. From the deep space exploration of ROCHE LIMIT to the horrors of monsters and war that is BURNING FIELDS, he has been unafraid to push the boundaries of comics, refusing to be limited to one genre while shoving together as many as he can. After a year and a half, Moreci has once again sat down with FANGORIA and dished on his latest works.
