    Women in Horror ’13: The Return of Christina Lindberg!

    Original artwork by Rob Jones, commissioned for The Exploitation Army in 2005

    There are certainly some out there who own a THRILLER: A CRUEL PICTURE T-shirt, but don’t know the name of the beautiful one-eyed actress screen-printed on the front.  I can understand that.  The image is irresistibly potent and perfectly represents what we love so much about no-bullshit cinema.  The iconic visuals of more savage films from yesteryear haunt us as films fans, in the best possible sense. And Christina Lindberg’s “Frigga” from THRILLER…, one of the most devastating yet entertaining of rape/revenge films, has always been a queen among of those poltergeists.  If you do own that shirt, it’s okay – you understand that the woman on your chest made an impact, and I’d love to tell you more about her.

    First Fango Set Visit: SXSW Horror “HAUNTER”

    It is a conventional stance of Hollywood ingenues to rise to prominence through roles in horror movies, only to disparage their genre origins once presented with opportunities more palatable to the mainstream. This is refreshingly not the case with Abigail Breslin, teenage star of ZOMBIELAND and Oscar nominee for her precocious performance in LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE, whom Fango catches up with on the set of Vincenzo Natali’s HAUNTER.

    Q&A: Eli Roth, producing “THE LAST EXORCISM PART II”

    This year, audiences awaiting the return of Eli Roth find an embarrassment of riches. On the directorial end, there’s both werewolf-in-a-steel town Netflix original series HEMLOCK GROVE and his Amazonian cannibal odyssey, THE GREEN INFERNO. The sometimes actor scripted and stars in Nicolas Lopez’s Chilean earthquake picture AFTERSHOCK and most relevantly, has lent a guiding hand to emerging talent, producing Ti West’s upcoming THE SACRAMENT and the sequel to one of the more undervalued of recent American genre films, THE LAST EXORCISM PART II (out March 1st). It’s this tale of Southern gothic that has Fango speaking to Roth about his own investment in continuing Nell Sweetzer’s story, how audiences approach foun footage, that which he’s never seen before in a possession film and what his producing legacy aims to be.
