    Event Report: “SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT” on 35mm at Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers!

    As any fervent filmgoer can tell you, there’s nothing quite like seeing a film at the Alamo Drafthouse, a theater chain and company devoted to bringing fans the most fun cinematic experience conceivable. From their full food and drink selection to their preservation of 35mm screenings to their strict “no talking” policy, it’s a well-deserved theatrical treat to check out a film, new or old, at a Drafthouse location. So when this writer was offered the chance to host their Yonkers screening of Charles E. Selliers, Jr.’s SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT, I leapt at the opportunity to help usher in this nasty holiday horror to fright fans.

    The Year in Horror, 2014: Ken’s Top 10 Films

    With little over a week until Christmas, and two weeks until New Years Eve, it seems that 2014 has been a divisive year in the world of horror. While 2013 was a boon to genre films studio and indie alike, 2014 was not as lucky: great offerings mostly found their debut on VOD, while great studio horror was, more or less, widely accepted as a dime a dozen. But while 2015 may offer some truly creepy cinema, this polarizing nature of 2014’s horror offerings will do well for at least one thing: varied, unpredictable and oddly defensive End of Year lists!

    Q&A: Chuck Palahniuk on “BEAUTIFUL YOU”

    Brilliant madman author Chuck Palahniuk (FIGHT CLUB) released his latest opus, BEAUTIFUL YOU, this past October, a twisted tale that follows Penny Harrigan, a low-level associate in a big Manhattan law firm who finds herself a test subject for a line of sex toys to be marketed in a nationwide chain of boutiques called “Beautiful You.” But that’s just the beginning of her story, as Penny becomes an unwitting pawn in a maniacal plot for world sexual domination. Like all of Palahniuk’s stuff, the horror hides in the skin of the surreal and socio-political, and FANGORIA caught up with Chuck to discuss…

  • A Message From Managing Editor Ken W. Hanley

    A little over two years ago, I hurriedly made my way through New York, acting like a bucket of nerves as I searched for the offices of FANGORIA nearby Times Square. Having loved the magazine while growing up, I was excited to have learned they were looking for interns and that my unique skill set put me in the peculiar position of qualifying for such an opportunity. So when I finally made my way upstairs through a cramped elevator and found the door adorning the FANGORIA skull logo, I couldn’t have been more anxious, nor more ignorant of the path my life would soon quickly take.

    Ashley Thorpe’s “BORLEY RECTORY” Set To Wrap Campaign

    UK animator and veteran FANGORIA contributor Ashley Thorpe has been steamrolling his Indiegogo campaign to raise the scratch to bring his magnum opus, THE BORLEY RECTORY, to life. With the kindness of strangers as well as fellow UK ghost story enthusiasts Clive Barker, Axelle Carolyn, Neil Marshall, Mick Garris and Neil Gaiman, he’s almost there. And though the campaign closes on December 15th, he’s still looking for a few more shekels to see the flick through.

    Exodus: “BLOOD IN, BLOOD OUT” (Album Review)

    The first thing that comes to mind when listening to the opening track of Exodus’s new album, BLOOD IN, BLOOD OUT, is, that unlike several of the band’s peers, age has in no way mellowed the band in the slightest. “Black 13” is a crushing example of thrash metal done to perfection, as if the band were frozen in a block of ice in 1987 and then released to terrorize the populace (like Christopher Lee’s Dracula in the beginning of Hammer’s 1968 epic DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE).

    Farewell, from Managing Editor Samuel Zimmerman

    Maybe it wasn’t my first job, but FANGORIA was my First Job. In 2009, I found luck interning for an institution, under the guidance of Tony Timpone and Michael Gingold, no less. Later, I lucked out again. Tony, Michael and owner Tom DeFeo gave me a real shot by bringing me on board full time. Properly educated in, and particularly ravenous for, film and film history, though I was and may be, I was also still a kid with a developing style and soon, a Slaughtered Lamb tattoo.
