    “EVIL DEAD” to bloody WonderCon; Announcement Video, New clip

    Fede Alvarez’s remake of the Sam Raimi classic is being unleashed and by all accounts, it’s an unrepentant splatter show. Following the world premiere at SXSW, fans are being given another opportunity to preview the film with director and producers in tow at Anaheim’s upcoming WonderCon.

    WonderCon, a member of the Comic Con family that’s ever growing goes down in Anaheim March 29-31, just one week before EVIL DEAD storms cinemas. Director Alvarez and producers Bruce Campbell and Rob Tapert have decided to announce their planned attendance on Saturday March 30. You can find that clip below, as well as a brand new excerpt from the movie that comes with seven years bad luck.

    EVIL DEAD hits theaters April 5. Toronto Fango fans are getting an exclusive sneak of the film tonight and you can find much more from us on the reboot, starting with our cover story in issue #322 (on sale now), our exclusive audio interview with Alvarez and our talk with the cast.

    FANGO FUNHOUSE: Paul Scheer on the horrifying, the hilarious and the horrible!

    As any true fright fan can tell you, horror and comedy go together like monsters and sequels, often bleeding into one another in such iconic genre offerings such as the EVIL DEAD sequels, SHAUN OF THE DEAD and GHOSTBUSTERS. Whether it’s an unexpected kill after an inspiration speech or the supernatural indulging in macabre mischief, few can argue that the subversive nature of both genres compliment each other with relative ease. Therefore, I welcome you, dear reader, to FANGO FUNHOUSE, a look into the co-dependent world of horror-comedy through those who know it best.

    “KISS OF THE DAMNED” (SXSW Movie Review)

    KISS OF THE DAMNED will most often be referred to as throwback. Its dreamy score, its opening titles, its visual flair and just how swooning the cast is all hark to the Roger Vadim, Jean Rollin Eurohorror aesthetic beloved by so many. More than a call, though, Xan Cassavettes’ vampire tale is a refresher. Entrenched in supernatural high society, its heightened senses, from ample bloodshed to melodramatics to lips that smash hard when they come together has found a way to make vampirism exhilarating onscreen again.

    Tyler Labine: More “TUCKER & DALE” on the way?

    One of Fango’s favorite horror/comedies of recent years is TUCKER & DALE VS. EVIL, in which a couple of likable backwoods hillbillies are mistaken for serial killers by college kids who blunder into their own bloody deaths. It’s one film we’d welcome a sequel to, and we chatted with one of the stars about that progress.

    “REWIND THIS!” (SXSW Movie Review)

    Partway through director Josh Johnson’s VHS doc,  Alamo Drafthouse programmer Lars Nilsen explains, in his summation, culture hasn’t yet reflected on the impact of the dead (or not so) format. That impact, when looked at historically is where REWIND THIS! shines. Filmmakers like Frank Henenlotter, Charles Band, JR Bookwalter and Roy Frumkes (who very humorously hates the format), whose movies lived and found audiences on VHS, offer fantastic context and insight on being at the forefront. Anecdotes about shining to tapes before studios and the early days of sell-through prices make for great stories, while arguments about just what VHS did for low budgets, both on the distribution and filmmaking ends, are just a few buzz words away from sounding incredibly similar to the current pro-talk for digital revolution.
