  • FANGO Flashback: “RAVENOUS”

    ,,

    When horror fans think “cannibal film,” there’s a few images that come immediately to mind: insect-ridden skeletal remains, thick jungle brush, blood-soaked savages, etc. Perhaps if not the jungle cannibal films, horror fans might think of the domestic cannibal flicks, whether it be more southern fried fare like the work of H.G. Lewis or the ominous creepshow of the Hannibal Lecter films. But among the more accepted endeavors in the cannibal subgenre, a few exceptional fright flicks approach the genre with utter unique and mind-bending tales that far too often fall between the cracks; Antonia Bird’s RAVENOUS is among those films.

  • “REBOUND” (Film Review)

    ,,

    When it comes to independent filmmaking, the dynamic between the familiar and the fresh is always an important one to observe. In this sense, a film can be aware of the subversion it has made to specific expectations or genre tropes, but only after it has become cognizant that the audience should be familiar with the story or subject matter. It’s an odd narrative tug-o-war, yet one seemingly necessary for a majority of genre films, especially ones such as Megan Freels Johnston’s REBOUND.

    ,

    THE HOWLING and GREMLINS legend Joe Dante’s celebrated web series TRAILERS FROM HELL, in which some of strange cinema’s brightest stars (like Guillermo del Toro, Mick Garris, Eli Roth, Roger Corman and many, many more) share their insights into a selection of cult, horror and fantasy films, cut against and over a cavalcade of classic movie trailers, is coming to Charles Band’s B-movie channel Full Moon Streaming.

  • “GHOUL” (2015; Movie Review)

    ,,,

    GHOUL set a genre box-office record in its opening weekend in its native Czech Republic, no doubt in part due to its appropriation of the true story of Soviet cannibal Andrei Chikatilo. One wonders how those audiences felt once they realized that Chikatilo’s presence largely amounts to name-dropping in the midst of a very familiar found-footage scenario.

  • FANTASTICA Presents: Appreciating Horror Beyond Horror

    ,,

    Upon consideration, one rarely gets their first taste of horror from the horror genre itself. For an unfortunate number, it comes from reality: whether personal or not, tragedy and inhumanity can lead one’s young mind into dark places. For others, it can be from our own imagination, with dark corners of rooms and unfamiliar noises guiding us towards the paranoid and petrifying. But for the rest of us, it comes in the cinema from which we least expect it, often in the genres we trust not to drag us into terror.
