    Cast and producer talk “BATES MOTEL”

    Did you ever wonder what Norman Bates was like prior to his misadventures in PSYCHO? You may say, “Yes, and that was explored in PSYCHO IV.” But the folks at A&E, along with executive producers/showrunners Carlton Cuse (of LOST) and Kerry Ehrin, have a different take on Norman’s early years, which they’re presenting in BATES MOTEL, premiering tonight at 10/9 Central.

    “HIGH ON THE HOG” actress Fiona Domenica talks her true terror tale

    For some people, home is where the heart is, but for others, it can be where the horror is. Speaking exclusively to FANGORIA, actress Fiona Domenica (who discussed her role in the upcoming Sid Haig-starrer HIGH ON THE HOG here) opened up about her next film, A PRAYS ELLEPSIS, a self-penned story that draws inspiration from a real-life nightmare.

    “HELL’S MUSE” (Book Review)

    To avoid judging a book by its cover is accepted wisdom, but darn if the state of that cover unavoidably colors one’s perceptions. And Jack Wallen’s HELL’S MUSE (Autumnal Press) knocks on the reader’s door in a dishevelled tizzy, with bruises (editorial boo-boos like the phrase “his most perfect work” in the back cover blurb, or paragraphs of text accidentally printed twice in the author bio) and scars (blurry graphics and horrendous, confusing title typography).  Take heart, because the old axiom proves correct; HELL’S MUSE is better than its shabby outer appearance would suggest.

    “THE FOX” (Book Review)

    For those who subscribe to the notion that horror fiction thrives on brevity, the recent proliferation of small presses offering shorter tales of the uncanny for the equivalent price of a newsstand magazine is a welcome development. UK publishers such as Nightjar and Spectral have dedicated themselves to the chapbook form, and their success in finding and commissioning quality material can be measured in the number of these stories that have subsequently gone on to be included within the array of ‘Year’s Best’ genre anthologies.

    Q&A: “MY AMITYVILLE HORROR” director Eric Walter

    “PLUS ONE” (SXSW Movie Review)

    Were you a different person 45 minutes ago?  Is it wild to suggest you may have been? At an age like 18, 19 or 20, a significant time of development and personal understanding, it might not be. Kids are ever changing, ever evolving and often, not so organically. They revolve interests, style and friends in an effort to grasp themselves and impress others. All the while, they hemorrhage mistakes and spew nervous energy with little time to understand what’s working and what isn’t. PLUS ONE, the latest from Greek filmmaker Dennis Iliadis (THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT), forces surreal reflection on the youth at a lavish house party, in a pop art-horror spin on one-night-can-change-everything teen movies.

    “THE CALL” (Movie Review)

    Rushed into its release slot today after Sony’s next-to-last-minute bumping of CARRIE to the Halloween season, THE CALL, which only began filming late last summer, feels neither rushed nor like a throwaway substitute. It’s an accomplished suspense/psychothriller in many ways, let down only by unfortunate lapses in the home stretch.
