  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: “THE HORROR SHOW” Continues Their Monstervision Tribute!

    ,,,

    Last week, THE HORROR SHOW took us back to the days where “horror television” meant Joe Bob Briggs ripping the heart out of Saturday Night every week on MONSTERVISION. But rather than rack up the Drive-In Totals for one week and call it quits, THE HORROR SHOW will devote a whole series to the petrifying cable presentation. And for this week, THE HORROR SHOW revives MONSTERVISION’s terrific takedown of ICE CREAM MAN!

  • FANGO Flashback: “PRISON”

    ,,

    For longtime readers of FANGORIA.com, this writer’s affection for the work of Renny Harlin has been well-documented. With genuinely awesome cinematic offerings such as MINDHUNTERS, DEEP BLUE SEA, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET PART IV, THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT, DIE HARD 2 and CLIFFHANGER under his belt, few directors can capture the spirit of popcorn entertainment better than Harlin. Even his cinematic missteps- FORD FAIRLANE, DEVIL’S PASS and EXORCIST: THE BEGINNING- are perhaps hobbled by their own ambition, and the fact that they still are fairly entertaining in their own right is a testament to Harlin’s work as a filmmaker. Yet unfortunately, too few horror hounds have seen one of Harlin’s legitimately best terror titles: the 1988 haunting thriller PRISON.

  • Transgressive Terror Attraction “DYSTOPIA” Frightens Up N.J., U.K. Experiences!

    ,

    Considering their growing popularity among more adventurous and daring horror audiences, it’s no wonder why the cult-like atmosphere of extreme, immersive haunts is becoming an art form in and of itself. Of course, one of the most controversial figures in that arena would be Russ McKamey, whose McKamey Mansion and other full-contact haunt experiences have lead to protests, regional bans and psychological scars for the unprepared. Following his exile from his successful, Long Island-based haunt, McKamey has teamed with NY horror collective Fringe Horror Theatre to create his latest immersive experience, DYSTOPIA, which has finally found a pair of venues daring enough to bring it to life.

  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: “THE GIRLS IN THE BACK ROW” Dig Up Indie Vampire Flicks!

    ,,,

    Out of all the subgenres in horror history, few have as much of a storied history with women as vampire horror. From its Gothic beginnings to contemporary reinventions, vampire horror has tackled subjects of lust, hunger, power, and mortality in perspectives that challenged traditional gender roles throughout the years. With that in mind, THE GIRLS IN THE BACK ROW tackle a pair of independent vampire horror films that continue that unique tradition: A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT and ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE!

  • Found Footage… For Real: Jim Gillespie’s Award-Winning Short Film, “JOYRIDE”!

    ,,

    In the wild world of Hollywood, there are numerous dream archetypes by which most filmmakers hope to find themselves eventually inhabiting. For some, it’s that one’s screenplay reaches the right person on the right day at the right time, launching them into a career not unlike Quentin Tarantino or Shane Black. For others, it’s the path more frequently taken, especially as video hosting has become the norm: a filmmaker directs a short, it gets seen by the right people, and the next thing they know, they’re running full-speed on the path of becoming the next go-to studio director. And while that dream may not be a complete fantasy- just ask genre directors such as Andres Muschietti, Fede Alvarez or David Sanberg-, the pure glut of short films on the web and in festivals nowadays has turned those chances into those akin to hitting the lottery.

  • “WEIRD DETECTIVE #1” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    Solving supernatural mysteries requires a very specific set of skills, the most preferred being a dictionary-like knowledge of the occult, a taste for cheap whiskey, and a hefty dose of self-loathing from continuously watching your loved ones being ripped apart by the denizens of Hell. Luckily for us, WEIRD DETECTIVE manages avoid all those tropes, instead creating a detective who is just as strange as the cases he seems to solve. Dark Horse’s newest comic is a refreshing addition to the heavily saturated genre of horror noir while harking back to that WEIRD TALES vibe that turned many a reader into a raving maniac howling from the abyss.

  • “OUTCAST: Season 1, Episode 1” (TV Review)

    ,,

    For fans of Robert Kirkman’s particular brand of pulp horror, one certainly knows the value of patience. While OUTCAST, the new exorcism horror series from Kirkman and Cinemax, does start out of the gate with a bit of stomach-twisting nastiness (including one shot that is guaranteed to give off phantom pains), the narrative itself does demand that the audience follow the story at a specific pace, investing its time into building the characters and world before throwing us into exorcist action. In some ways, it’s tonally more akin to the likes of HANNIBAL than Kirkman’s own WALKING DEAD, with mature, artful storytelling with glimpses of brutal, goosebump-inducing horror. But by no means does this mean OUTCAST is any less of a horror show, and in its debut episode, the series offers a layered tale of terror that’s engages you intimately before bringing its nightmares to life.

  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: Joe & Pat get Greed-y on “WE’LL SEE YOU IN HELL”!

    ,,,

    Greed may not be good, but it is certainly somewhat necessary in all of our lives. Whether it’s for experience, personal gain, financial gain or to rise in your profession, greed is something that is relatively common among the seven deadly sins, and can even be manageable if one is not consumed by the need for Greed. So, of course, Greed lives decadently on this week’s WE’LL SEE YOU IN HELL!
