  • “CIRCUS OF THE DEAD” (Film Review)

    ,,

    A weathered mannequin bust sits atop a vanity table dressed in a police cap and mustache evocative of Adolf Hitler. “Doo Wacka Doo”, a benevolent song from the 1940’s, plays with the scratch-crackle only vinyl records make.  We see a hand dip into a retro can of white cream, painting the face of a woman not fully in view.  With the swirl of an antique Barber chair the disturbingly beautiful masterpiece is finally revealed. A dead woman is seated; head cocked to the side. Her face made up with white clown makeup; a blue color on the tip of her nose.  In her hands a beautiful glass display showcases her crudely extracted heart.

  • “FIRE CITY: THE INTERPRETER OF SIGNS” (Film Review)

    ,,

    To some filmmakers, a low budget is a terrifying thing, constantly ticking away as time and resources quickly work against your grand vision for a story. To others, however, a low budget can be something of a blessing in disguise, allowing ambitious ideas to work within a contained environment. In either case, a low budget warrants resourcefulness from a filmmaker, and in that case, a healthy imagination is always beneficial to roll with the financial and circumstantial punches. And in the case of Tom Woodruff Jr.’s FIRE CITY: THE INTERPRETER OF SIGNS, that imagination is on full display, allowing the Stan Winston alumnus to make a truly vibrant and intriguing story of monsters and men without peeling at the seams of its budget.

    ,

    After his feature film debut ANTIVIRAL made him a filmmaker to watch in his own right, FANGORIA has kept a close eye on filmmaker Brandon Cronenberg. Interesting enough, Cronenberg has found himself gravitating towards experimental music videos, navigating through the Canadian music scene to create some truly jarring and contemplative work. Now, Cronenberg has found himself at the helm of another aural oddity, lending his masterful eye to the haunting, NSFW inaugural single from the genre-defying musical outfit JOOJ, entitled “Shoulders and Whispers.”

  • Will “IT FOLLOWS” Be Followed By A Sequel?

    ,

And with the film holding steady and generating buzz even at four plus weeks at the box office, the eventual talks about a sequel have arisen.

  • “BATES MOTEL: Season 3, Episode 5” (TV Review)

    ,,

    While this writer had his doubts here and there, there’s no denying that BATES MOTEL is in a full upswing in their third season, taking a patient yet effective approach of tying together the obligatory White Pine Bay drama to that of the Bates family. Yet over the course of the fifth episode, entitled “The Deal,” the show hits on two essential themes that will likely usher in the horror of the show sooner rather than later. The first theme would be that of growth, with Dylan and Norma both taking large steps in improving their social and emotional standings, at least to a certain point. The second theme would be that of descent, with both Romero and Norman finding themselves on a downward slide into utter desperation. And in the middle lay those on either side of the fence, whether it be Emma, Caleb, Bob Paris, or Chick Hogan.
