Courtesy of XLrator Media, Fango has several copies of Norwegian folktale based creature feature THALE, and we are searching for some fine FANGORIA fans to send these out to.
In the film, two crime-scene cleaners discover a mythical, tailed female creature in a concealed cellar. She never utters a word, unable to tell her story, but the pieces of the puzzle soon come together: she’s been held captive for decades for reasons soon to surface.
To enter, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the word “THALE” in the subject line and include the following:
• Email address
• Mailing address
• Phone number
• AgeRead more »

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.”Read more »

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.Read more »

If you’re like me, you’ve probably been thinking “What the world needs right now is a book that’s like the literary equivalent of THE TEX-MEX CHAINSAW MASSACRE, with a creepy-ass Mexican cannibal family helping account for all those poor illegal immigrants who disappear trying to cross the border, and featuring a deranged maniac in a Luchador mask named El Gigante who likes to wrestle his prey to the mat in a grisly entertainment ritual of thrill-packed culinary prep.”Read more »

There is a charm to the cheap and dirty gorefest. Those who turn their noses up at it and pretend to only have the most refined tastes in their monster movie stabfests are kind of crashing bores. For the rest of us, a good cheesy piece of high camp loaded with grotesque practical FX and mom’s minivan hits the spot. Done well, a movie like this takes us back to our glory days of a movie night with good friends and enough karo syrup to choke a Labrador. You can feel the fun the actors are having on screen, their joy is infectious and when the brains start to spray all over the walls in pneumatic jets, everything feels right with the world.Read more »

Originally launched in 1987, MARSHAL LAW was a gob of spit in the face of superhero comics; a gleefully violent satire of the genre. The titular character was a superhero hunter, a war veteran living in a dystopian future city, tasked with hunting down the array of superpowered criminals and psychopaths created and then discarded by the US Government. In the words of the Marshal: “I hunt heroes. Haven’t found any yet.”Read more »

Regarding FRESH MEAT, MEET THE FEEBLES’ co-writer Danny Mulheron’s latest, the term “cannibal comedy” should have most Fango fans on board. But if you need a little extra incentive, our exclusive clip—with its New Zealand accents, rifle brandishing, short shorts and gentleman wrapped in a sleeping bag repeatedly run over—should give you a pretty good idea of the gonzo tone in store.Read more »

Netflix’s original programming and their all-in-one-day approach is about to get good deal gory and a good deal sudsy. Based on the novel from Brian McGreevy and produced, shepherded and partly directed by Eli Roth, HEMLOCK GROVE—as evidenced in its red band preview—revels in all manner of small town illicit deeds.
HEMLOCK premieres this Friday, April 19; optimal placement for weekend gorging on this tale of the eccentric residents of a dilapidated former Pennsylvania steel town and the murder of 17-year-old Brooke Bluebell. Through the investigation, the town’s seamier side, including werewolves and bio-experiments, is exposed, revealing nothing is what it seems.
I’ve seen two episodes so far, and the above footage is a pretty accurate look at the fun to expect. I’m all in what’s clearly both TWIN PEAKS-inspired and a product of post-AMERICAN HORROR STORY TV. This is bloody, soapy, hammy all-over print horror. There’s a review forthcoming, and I’m looking forward to setting aside more than a few hours to catch the rest.
