  • “YUREI: THE JAPANESE GHOST” (Book Review)

    ,,

    The first image that usually comes to mind when someone mentions “Japanese ghost” is the long-haired, white-draped, female spirit a la Sadako from THE RING or Kayako from THE GRUDGE. With their deathly pale faces and blood thirsty drive to kill all who cross their paths, they have become the standard from which many J-Horror spirits have been built from. But, did you know that they are merely the newest interpretation of what is actually a centuries old folk tale? Or that the modern appearance of these ghosts, or better known as yurei, was born out of necessity due to the poor lighting at early kabuki theaters? YUREI: THE JAPANESE GHOST explores the darker side of Japanese folklore, creating one of the first, modern English texts to thoroughly explore the intricacies of Japans’ beliefs on death, dying, and the afterlife.

  • Q&A: Director Josh Forbes talks “CONTRACTED: PHASE II”

    ,

    One of the more gruesome horror offerings of the last few years, CONTRACTED certainly raised a stir among fans of indie horror upon its release in late 2013. The film spread like wildfire over streaming services such as Netflix, and the divisive body horror flick rode a solid wave of momentum (and impressive VOD numbers) to CONTRACTED: PHASE II. Continuing the story exactly where the first film left off, director Josh Forbes looks to up the ante with the second film to make a bigger, badder follow-up than anyone could anticipate, and with FANGORIA screening the film in NYC this Tuesday, we caught up with Forbes to talk PHASE II, body horror and his future in fright fare…

  • FANTASTICA Presents: The Killer At Your Doorstep, or Courting the Domestic Thriller

    ,,

    One of the scariest positions a person can find themselves in is one of vulnerability. To let someone into your heart, head, or home is an unnerving proposition, and one that can get very tragic very quickly. For every good thing that could come of such interpersonal exchanges, there are millions of horrible things that can occur as well. And it seems now more than ever we live in a state of constantly being on-guard and reluctant to all the messiness of human interaction; we text our friends and loved ones instead of calling them due to a fear of awkward pauses ,and place tape over the cameras on our computers because “you never know who’s watching.”
