    “HAROLD’S GOING STIFF” (Movie Review)

    The vast majority of the post-NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD zombie canon has conditioned audiences to accept, without question, the premise that if not somehow contained, the appearance of walking dead leads inexorably to apocalypse. Fast or slow, sentient or comatose, the zombies are not only coming to get poor Barbara in the graveyard—they’re out to decimate civilization.

    Jess Franco’s “A VIRGIN AMONG THE LIVING DEAD” (Blu-ray Review)

    Those that dismiss the elephantine and obsessive filmography of the late cinema slinger Jess Franco would be wise to sit down and absorb what might be his greatest film of the 1970s, if not his storied career: CHRISTINA, PRINCESS OF EROTICISM or, as it’s more commonly referred to as–including on the sleeve of Repemption/Kino Lorber’s superlative Blu-ray release–A VIRGIN AMONG THE LIVING DEAD.

    “SATURDAY MORNING MYSTERY” (Movie Review)

    SATURDAY MORNING MYSTERY offers a tantalizing concept previously untouched by the genre: a grown-up, live-action, horror-movie take on SCOOBY-DOO. Spunky heroine Nancy (Ashley Spillers)—essentially a flesh-and-blood version of Velma—and her three pals Gwen (Josephine Decker), Chad (Adam Tate) and Floyd (Jonny Mars), who happen to bear a number of similarities to Daphne, Fred and Shaggy respectively, are paranormal investigators who cruise around solving mysteries with their dog Hamlet via an orange Volkswagen bus.

    Simon Rumley talks his new-to-DVD films, “GEORGE ROMERO” movie and more

    Prior to his transition to the (very) dark side with films like THE LIVING AND THE DEAD and RED WHITE & BLUE, British independent filmmaker Simon Rumley made his big break into feature-length filmmaking with his “youth culture trilogy”—STRONG LANGUAGE (2000), THE TRUTH GAME (2001) and CLUB LE MONDE (2002, pictured above). The loosely connected triad is getting a long-overdue DVD release in North America today via Jinga Films, and Fango spoke with Rumley about these seminal works as well as what he’s got coming up.

  • “ABANDONED MINE” (Movie Review)

    I was hoping—against hope, I suppose—that the title of ABANDONED MINE might have a double meaning, a metaphoric reference to losses the characters have suffered. But no, it means exactly what it seems, and so does the movie.

    Clive Barker’s “THE HISTORY OF THE DEVIL” (Stage Review)

    Written before he explored his own vision of hell’s god, Leviathan, in THE HELLBOUND HEART, Clive Barker’s 1980 play THE HISTORY OF THE DEVIL focuses on the underworld’s more traditional Judeo-Christian figurehead, Lucifer. Montreal’s Title 66 Productions, in conjunction in the Fantasia film festival, conjured up a new production of Barker’s work for three nights earlier this month, seeking to answer the question: Is there sympathy for Satan?
