    “DARK BLOOD” (Movie Review)

    “If you want something enough, you must will it. If you’re obsessed enough, you will get the object of your desire.”

    So declares a tortured desert eccentric named Boy—portrayed by a fiery River Phoenix in his final screen role—to the pair of marooned Hollywood jetsetters he’s holding captive in a pivotal scene from DARK BLOOD, but the character might as well have been whispering through the celluloid ether to director George Sluizer, who recently (and with an effort that can only be described as herculean) plucked the film from the purgatory of fractional incompleteness in which it has lingered unseen for twenty years and made it a (qualified) whole.

    “INHUMAN RESOURCES”: Tom Savini sees “Redd,” Part Two

    It must be kismet. Horror/makeup FX king Tom Savini, a hero to FANGORIA readers since we first profiled him in the very first issue of the mag in 1979, appears in and supervised the FX for INHUMAN RESOURCES (formerly REDD INC), the first “volume” of FANGORIA Presents’ new VOD/DVD label; see here http://www.fangoria.com/new/fango-presents/ for details). INHUMAN RESOURCES follows a deranged corporate manager/convicted serial killer Thomas Reddmann (Nicholas Hope) who kidnaps six people and holds them hostage in a deserted office. Soon the tortures begin, but all is not what it seems… Fango caught up with Savini in Australia during production of his latest splatter flick, and you can see part one of this interview here .

    “AS I KNEW HIM: MY DAD, ROD SERLING” (Book Review)

    When discussing classic sci-fi/horror/fantasy television, ardent fans of THE TWILIGHT ZONE almost always come up against the camp that see your ZONE and raise you an OUTER LIMITS. Some may even dare say they prefer ONE STEP BEYOND or even on the similar Rod Serling tip, NIGHT GALLERY. But true ZONE heads are such not just because of the silvery black and white photography, skin-crawling theme music, nor the assorted aliens, monsters, shape shifters, murderous dummies and devils that gave the program it’s hook. Rather, they hold the show high because of Serling’s pen, because of his philosophies, his morality and his humanity. Because of course, THE TWILIGHT ZONE was never really about those trappings or narrative twists, it was about the folly of man, the belief that people are fundamentally good and that human evil is a perversion of prejudice. It was about both the wit and the somewhat broken heart of the man who built the house that stood on CBS’ prime time hill between 1959 and 1964.
