    Q&A: Actor Ray Stevenson talks “RARE EXPORTS” Helmer’s Next, “BIG GAME”

    For fans of foreign horror, one contemporary Christmas chiller that has stood the test of time is RARE EXPORTS, the Finnish fright flick that gave a dark, mythological twist to the Santa Claus legend. Now, RARE EXPORTS director Jalmari Helander is back with another film that’s larger than life: BIG GAME, which pits the US President (played by none other Samuel L. Jackson) and his unwitting 13-year-old savior (Onni Tommila) against terrorists who aim to hunt the Commander-in-Chief. Among the big bads is OUTPOST veteran Ray Stevenson, who spoke to FANGORIA about his villainous role, his humanizing approach and his upcoming role as Blackbeard on BLACK SAILS…

    “SALEM: Season 2, Episode 13″ (TV Review)

    As fright fans may be able to tell you, you can’t have the devil on Earth without expecting a little damnation. And damnation there was on SALEM’s second season finale, a relatively busy and brutal episode that spans only the short time since John Jr. became Lucifer’s vessel at the hand of Countess Marburg. While the repercussions of said damnation won’t be entirely clear until SALEM’s (presumed) third season, there’s enough death, and fates worse than death, in “The Witching Hour” to satiate even the most bloodthirsty SALEM fan, with accompanying practical effects to boot. And considering the thoughts and images that SALEM leaves us to contemplate over the next few months, no character is going to come back to season three untested as this chapter in the series had anything but happy endings.

    Q&A: Producer Jason Blum on “THE LAZARUS EFFECT”

    Make no mistake: Blumhouse Productions has become the strongest brand of horror operating today. With 6 fright flicks already hitting audiences this year so far, and at least 7 more fright films coming our way before the year ends, Blumhouse has taken the Corman business model and flipped it on its head, reaping in financial rewards and even critical reverence as well. It’s that reputation that helped build this year’s THE LAZARUS EFFECT, which gave JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI director David Gelb his first foray into fright and assembled an incredibly versatile cast that included Olivia Wilde, Mark Duplass, Donald Glover, Sarah Bolger, Evan Peters and Ray Wise. In light of the film’s recent home media release, Blum spoke to FANGORIA about THE LAZARUS EFFECT, bending genres and his horror-filled future…

    Announcement: FANGORIA’s First Annual International Online Film Festival!

    For the better part of four decades, FANGORIA has worked hard to provide horror fans with the first word in fright, whether it’s a comprehensive look at the SFX in your favorite fright flicks or revelatory interviews with the masters of macabre. In this time, FANGORIA has explored many different avenues in the grue game, whether it’s conventions, film production, distribution, comics, a Sirius/XM radio show, audio dramas and much, much more. However, despite our love for the latest in horror, FANGORIA has never found the right time and place for our own film festival; after all, there were few venues that could hold our ambitious ideas… until now.

    “FRAGMENTS OF HORROR” (Comic Book Review)

    Japanese horror manga is a small but popular percentage of comics that come from the Land of the Rising Sun. While most fans are aware of the more popular titles such as ATTACK ON TITAN and HELLSING, there is a whole world of unexplored, smaller works that are more akin to the traditional horror of demons, ghosts, and madness. One of the most prolific creators to contribute to the genre is manga master Junji Ito. Most recognized for his works-turned-movies TOMIE and UZUMAKI, Ito has written and drawn an endless array of mind-boggling works ranging from black comedy to the perverted terrors of the human mind and the merciless universe and, thanks to Viz Media, we are once again graced with a new collection of his translated works titled FRAGMENTS OF HORROR. Both written and illustrated by Ito, it’s an easy introduction to his work for new fans while still keeping true to the intense nature to which seasoned fans have grown accustomed.

    Exclusive Report: Dark MoFo Fest, Part II

    Flying in from the mainland of Australia to Launceston Tasmania, the lighthearted  mood had changed. It was much colder, and spirits and ghosts were noticeably among us. Tragedy hung over the island in the low lying clouds and even wearing three pairs of pants, I couldn’t shake the chill, with cold winds from the Antarctic pole blowing, and I was there all alone.
