  • “BATES MOTEL: Season 3, Episode 1” (TV Review)

    ,,

    To this writer, there’s a certain satisfaction in knowing the direction that BATES MOTEL will eventually go, and the, dare we say, change in Norman’s voice that’s been teased in A&E’s previews for season three. But, BATES MOTEL still has to get there, and  I have to give A&E credit in that the first episode of the third season is much better written than most of season two, especially in terms of the oh-so-uncomfortable approach to Norman and Norma’s familial relationship. And with strong writing comes strong performances, and luckily, strong direction, which all makes “A Death in the Family” a solid lead in with a promise of something much creepier.

  • “THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE” (1962) (UK Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    Now, I’ll be up front: THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE is not a horror movie. However, the 1962 John Frankenheimer film is as close as a political thriller could be to being a horror film and a believable drama, carrying elements that are familiar to genre fans, including PSYCHO, THE DEAD ZONE and ROSEMARY’S BABY. And it also has the benefit of being genuinely scary at points, and thanks to a befitting Region B Blu-ray from Arrow Video, the time is ripe for revisiting this intense and unnerving classic.

  • Q&A: “WOLFCOP” himself Leo Fafard Speaks!

    ,

    With the amount of campy throwbacks hitting the market recently, those films are only as effective as those filling the shoes of their main attraction. This is especially true for WOLFCOP, a film in which the human aspect has to be as endearing and fun enough to keep the audience engaged until we get to the more monstrous action. Luckily, that film has Canadian actor Leo Fafard filling the role of the beastly constable, delivering a committed and frequently hilarious performance both in and out of make-up. FANGORIA recently caught up with Fafard about his inaugural leading role as well as keeping his humanity as the WOLFCOP…
