  • The FANGORIA Guide to the 2015 Stanley Film Festival

    ,

    With the number of genre-centric film festivals hosted around the world, there’s few that make horror as immersive as an experience as the Stanley Film Festival. By taking the film festival model and injecting it with events such as the immersion game, virtual reality experiences and live music/performances, Stanley has quickly ascended to “must-go” status among the horror community. Yet with so many options and choices throughout the four day festival, navigating through the Stanley Film Festival could be a horror show of its own, so FANGORIA has put together a personalized guide for Stanley attendees based on their specific tastes and sensibilities. So without further ado…

  • “Salem: Season 2, Episode 4” (TV Review)

    ,,

    I must admit that with a show like SALEM, the repeated efforts to be bolder and brasher beyond the limits of taste are motions to be respected. Whether it’s graphic foreplay, gore or just uncomfortable thematic material, SALEM caters to its audiences love of the taboo while crafting their own unique brand of horror. This is largely effective of an approach, yet with 13 episodes to service per season, that balance doesn’t always equal a narrative home run. And while the pacing of this episode is a bit rocky at times, SALEM still has many admirable moments in the latest episode, bluntly entitled “Book of Shadows.”

  • Video Interview: Writer/Director Leigh Whannell on “INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3”

    ,,,

    In the horror genre, there’s few fright franchises that have found as much praise and success from hardcore horror fans and casual horror audiences as the INSIDIOUS films. After INSIDIOUS brought SAW creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell back into the horror forefront, CHAPTER 2 proved the films to be a powerhouse of critical and commercial success. Now, the third chapter of the INSIDIOUS franchise looms, looking to shine light on possibly the darkest tale of the saga to date. And with Whannell himself taking over the reigns from Wan this time around, FANGORIA caught up with the writer/actor/director on the set of the Into The Further 4D Experience to chat about prequel pressures, monsters and his directorial debut…

  • Confirmed: Guillermo del Toro’s “SILENT HILLS” Cancelled by Konami

    ,

    While 2014 found many long-anticipated horror video games hitting consoles, including the FANGO Cover-donning THE EVIL WITHIN, there was nothing that scared gamers more effectively and unexpectedly as P.T. (short for “playable teaser”), the demo level for Guillermo del Toro and Hideo Kojima’s upcoming SILENT HILLS, which was being developed by Konami and aimed to star WALKING DEAD icon Norman Reedus. But after a long-development process, SILENT HILLS, which was due to hit Playstation consoles in 2016, has hit several obstacles, the largest being Kojima’s abrupt exit from the project to further work on METAL GEAR SOLID V. And despite Konami’s claim that they were to make SILENT HILLS  with or without Kojima, social media reports following Guillermo del Toro’s appearance at the San Francisco International Film Festival have stated the project itself may be dead.

  • FANGO Flashback: “CHILD’S PLAY”

    ,,

    While the horror genre has its fair share of great sequels, prequels, spin-offs and reboots, there’s nothing quite like the original. Yet sometimes, after seeing some of the insane or bizarre places a fright franchise can go, memories of the original can become cloudy or perhaps even heightened in status without a proper and timely re-examination. But then there are the fright franchises that have always had that weird subversive streak to them, and there’s few whose concept has helped usher in such eerie and odd material as well as CHILD’S PLAY.
