    “SWAMP THING, VOL. 2: FAMILY TREE” (Comic Review)

    SWAMP THING has had as many series as the average person has fingers. Currently on its fifth run, the newest addition to the growing mythos has a found a different DC home outside of the Vertigo imprint, this time under the current DC universe, “The New 52.” Thanks to the relaunch, the hulking figure is back in the spotlight, this time with a densely rich world for him to kick ass and take names in.

    “DARK TOUCH” (Tribeca Movie Review)

    In DARK TOUCH, European director and provocateur Marina de Van transfers her now recurring theme of identity crisis and unsure footing from grown women to a young girl still in pre-pubescence. It’s this pre-pubescence that’s taken terrifying advantage of; the repercussions of which manifest themselves in a fury of psychic power and telekinesis. Of course, CARRIE will be and is a touchstone for many in the case of this Ireland-set horror story, but whereas that tale explores the fear of oncoming womanhood, DARK TOUCH is an unnerving look at it forced on someone far, far too young.

    Q&A: “THE LORDS OF SALEM” Actresses Meg Foster and Dee Wallace

    The city of Salem, Massachusetts probably would have stayed anonymous through history if it wasn’t for the notorious witch trails that took place there between 1691-92. Cinema has frequently found inspiration in these infamous events, and filmmaker/musician Rob Zombie returns to the screen this Friday with THE LORDS OF SALEM, perhaps his darkest and most audacious work to date, with veteran genre stars Meg Foster (from John Carpenter’s THEY LIVE, pictured above with Zombie) and Dee Wallace (from Joe Dante’s THE HOWLING and others) among his cast.

    Mood Lighting: Five films to prime you for “THE LORDS OF SALEM”

    THE LORDS OF SALEM is both undoubtedly a Rob Zombie film and yet something of a departure. Aesthetically more mannered and surreal, the director brings his assuredness to what amounts to a less gritty, more heightened and composed peer into evil and a groundswell of negative energy. It’s lush and stylish and all of the similar sounding words that describe a trippy lightheadedness best experienced on as big a screen as possible.

    Q&A: Corn on Macabre reflect on horror-themed grindcore and definitive collection, “DISCOGRAPHIC VIOLENCE”

    The late, great Rod Serling-worshipping, H.G. Wells-hyping horror-themed avant grind band Corn on Macabre may have once issued a wonderfully sinister sonic salvo entitled “Shut Up and Play Something Evil,” but it would be a mistake to presume this was a motivational mantra chanted before each practice. “The message definitely wasn’t something that we needed for ourselves,” the band’s former bassist/current Highness guitarist Brent Eyestone tells FANGORIA. “Our collective evil was in tune and finely calibrated before we even got down the steps to the basement.”

    “THE SEARCH FOR WENG WENG” Doc looks to Kickstarter for completion

    I was first introduced to the diminutive James Bond rip-off from the Philippines known as Weng Weng at my friend Anthony Biancofiore’s house long after an alcohol fueled party. Anthony is a big fan of the “little people” and it goes beyond an admiration and love for Billy Barty and the cast of UNDER THE RAINBOW. His devotion to dwarf stars extends to Bridget the Midget and her fellow small stature artistes in the world of adult entertainment and this strange oddity called Weng Weng; who with the help of his trusty umbrella that he uses to fly around à la Mary Poppins, his fast punchy kung-fu moves and his harem of regular sized sultry sexy starlets, has become an icon of cult cinema and is a significant part of Filipino culture.
