    “DIGGING UP THE MARROW” (Blu-ray Review)

    With most films, especially in the horror genre, it’s always best to go in with as little knowledge as possible as to what’s coming as to prevent entering with unfair expectations. After all, as reviewers, we have an obligation to approach all projects for review with an open mind and as little baggage as possible; we’re champions of cinema, and should always be looking to raise it upon our shoulders than push it under our feet. Yet with some films, such as DIGGING UP THE MARROW, the film is so tied into the filmmaker’s DNA that the overall viewing experience will, somehow, someway, be tampered by one’s take on director/star Adam Green. If you’re a fan, or indifferent, or unknowing of Green’s past work, MARROW will work on many levels, and from this writer’s review some weeks back, the film is both a narrative and technical success for Green and Co. But if you’re actively not a fan of Green, MARROW won’t do much to change that, as Green or Green’s properties are referenced in almost every scene in this film.

    “R100″ (FANTASTICA Blu-ray Review)

    There are some movies that within the first five minutes, you’re either 100% in or 100% out. And while Hitoshi Matsumoto’s R100 might initially appear like that kind of movie, the incredibly insane, fantastic and hysterically self-aware places the film prove any savvy viewer would be dead wrong. An cinematic genetic cross between John Waters and Neveldine/Taylor, Drafthouse Films has brought R100 to Blu-ray, allowing any daring viewers can take a trip down R100’s bizarre highway of S&M madness in excellent high definition.

    Q&A: Radco’s Jon Conrad on Environmental Horror Graphic Novel “BAD SUMMER”

    In the ever-changing media landscape, it’s no surprise that horror has found a way to dominate oh so many mediums. But while the rise to the top of both the box office and Nielsen ratings was inevitable, it’s been quite interesting to see how horror has developed in the world of graphic novels. Horror comics have been on the rise for the better part of 4 decades at this point, and now, some truly creative, transgressive and terrifying work has been breaking through the waves of pulp terror.

    Video Q&A: Seth Gable and Tamzin Merchant talk “SALEM” and Superstition!

    For fans of SALEM’s first season, many could agree that the show was about transformation: for all the drama, gore and sex, the show ultimately followed witches and witch hunters as they transformed in their desperate pursuit of power. However, for season two, SALEM goes from transformation to transgression, as war comes to SALEM on all sides; needless to say, blood will be spilled, spells will be cast and hell will break loose. But there are few characters whose fates remain as unpredictable in the upcoming witch war as Cotton Mather and Anne Hale, and during FANGORIA’s set visit to SALEM, we were able to pry some answers from their performers, actor Seth Gable and actress Tamzin Merchant!

    Event Report: FANGORIA Presents “THE HITCHER” (1986) at Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers!

    Truth be told, there’s few horror films that effectively scared this writer- as in legitimate goosebumps and fear- in his youth as much as Robert Harmon’s THE HITCHER. The way that the film almost immediately descended you into terror, as well as the epic scope of the production and the nuanced brutality of the piece, made it feel somewhat more real and dangerous. And say what you’d like about Roy Batty, but for my money, Rutger Hauer has never been outright scarier than in the role of the enigmatic (and demonically paternal) John Ryder.
