    Fango Flashback: “SORCERER” (1977)

    Following years of distribution limbo, William Friedkin’s 1977 box-office misfire SORCERER finally sees the light of day again this spring, beginning with a special one-week engagement (in a DCP restoration overseen by the director) at New York City’s Film Forum (209 West Houston; [212] 727-8110) from May 30 to June 5. Of his celluloid catalogue, Friedkin considers SORCERER his most accomplished work (he says he wouldn’t change a frame), better than his THE FRENCH CONNECTION and THE EXORCIST! You can judge for yourself when the thriller, a remake of Henri-Georges’ Clouzot’s French classic THE WAGES OF FEAR, burns up repertory houses decades after its initial debut.

    This past March brought the teaser of MALDITO AMOR, Gonzalo and Sebastián Badilla’s horror-comedy that’s equally influenced by 80s high school pictures as it is gialli, and one of the many reasons to be excited about the burgeoning genre scene in South America. Specially crafted as an announcement, that clip revealed the playful humor inherent to the production, but little else. FANGORIA is excited then to reveal the first footage from the film in its lengthy international trailer.

    From the FANGORIA Vault: “THE BROOD”

    Horror has taught many lessons to those of us who’ve grown up with the genre, but few have been as poignant as “family first.” After all, we’ve all seen the handiwork of THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, SON OF DRACULA and more than a fair share of cannibalistic clans. Yet here at the FANGORIA Vault, we do know that family doesn’t always last forever, and in those cases, the claws can come out. And luckily for us, we’ve uncovered the perfect example with these rare shots from David Cronenberg’s broken family frightener THE BROOD!

    There’s a reason we’re still talking CHEAP THRILLS, and have been for over a year now. From its world premiere at SXSW, the small, stylish, thoughtful feature debut from Evan Katz was immediately recognized as something special. It’s a biting film, both hilarious and horrifying in equal measure and not unwilling to slap anyone in its vicinity. As the film arrives on DVD & Blu-ray, primed for endless revisits where it loses zero effect—the sound design on the finger chop is always that stark—FANGORIA finishes our talks with the film’s principal cast.

    “AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE” #5 (Comic Review)

    During the past year, there are few things this writer anticipates more than opening my mailbox to reveal a lovely bubble envelope shipped from the Archie Comics Group, its vibrant address sticker displaying the iconic Riverdale gang grinning with perma-1950s “gosh-golly” cheer. Of course, inside that shipping slipcase lies something far more malevolent; in fact, what waits within is one of the scariest, most affecting horror comics I’ve ever read.
