    Camilla’s Beastly Bulletin #1: Scarecrows, Ax Murder and Aliens, Oh My!

    Fangoria readers love horror movies for many reasons, and perhaps there is comfort in knowing that these heinous stories are for the most part, works of fiction. But what about the real horror stories that are happening every day across the globe? Many horror auteurs and writers find these a source of inspiration for their work, some being so bizarre that most minds could not conjure from their own imaginations and instead are beholden to the term “Based on a True Story.”

    Q&A: Director Scott Dow on “THE WALKING DECEASED”

    In a weird way, there’s an art to doing a horror spoof correctly, even though some horror fans would disagree that’s at all possible. Certainly, if you rely too much on an easy gag or anything too on-the-nose, you risk alienating your audience and being labeled as a cheap ripoff. On the other hand, if you stride too far away from the source material, you risk confusing your target audience and misrepresenting the film. So therefore, it’s important for a spoof to not only understand its source material, but to appreciate itself as a film, and build upon that material to earn some genuine laughs from the characters and dialogue.

    FANGO Flashback: “RAVENOUS”

    When horror fans think “cannibal film,” there’s a few images that come immediately to mind: insect-ridden skeletal remains, thick jungle brush, blood-soaked savages, etc. Perhaps if not the jungle cannibal films, horror fans might think of the domestic cannibal flicks, whether it be more southern fried fare like the work of H.G. Lewis or the ominous creepshow of the Hannibal Lecter films. But among the more accepted endeavors in the cannibal subgenre, a few exceptional fright flicks approach the genre with utter unique and mind-bending tales that far too often fall between the cracks; Antonia Bird’s RAVENOUS is among those films.

    “REBOUND” (Film Review)

    When it comes to independent filmmaking, the dynamic between the familiar and the fresh is always an important one to observe. In this sense, a film can be aware of the subversion it has made to specific expectations or genre tropes, but only after it has become cognizant that the audience should be familiar with the story or subject matter. It’s an odd narrative tug-o-war, yet one seemingly necessary for a majority of genre films, especially ones such as Megan Freels Johnston’s REBOUND.
