  • “WOLF CREEK: THE SERIES” (TV Review)

    ,,

    It could have been very easy for the creators of WOLF CREEK to go the FREDDY’S NIGHTMARES route, positing tails of outback terror connected by modern horror icon Mick Taylor. After all, star John Jarratt is so perfect in the role of the sadistic, crude killer that it’s almost criminal to not give him the platform to perform on the WOLF CREEK series. However, perhaps the reason WOLF CREEK’s TV continuation works as well as it does is that it understands the narrative value of Taylor, and by allowing Jarratt to take a backseat to the story of his vengeance-bound victim, the series builds upon the seedy world of WOLF CREEK, in which Taylor is far from the only danger lurking in the darkness.

  • “PLANKFACE” (Film Review)

    ,

    As a young couple begin to fool around on the hood of their car, deep in the woods, we see a masked figure walk up, dragging an axe. While the murderer definitely succeeds in his mission of murder in the short scene, he’s wounded multiple times before stumbling off. Not too long after, Max and Stacey (I-ZOMBIE’s Nathan Barrett and FRANKENSTEIN CREATED BIKERS’ Ellie Church) are setting up for a nice weekend of camping when they’re attacked by a drifter who leaves Max injured and Stacey brutally raped. When Max awakes, mid-way through his girlfriend getting raped, something in him snaps, and not only does he exact revenge on the drifter, but does it by returning the favor with a knife…right before getting knocked unconscious.

  • Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival Presents: “EGOMANIAC” & The Meta Revenge Film!

    ,,

    Horror films have always excelled at exploring the fragility of sanity. No other genre ventures into the unspeakably dark crevices of the human mind with the naked curiosity that horror does. Nor does any genre make the descent into madness as much fun as it is with horror. Enhancing that fun factor is filmmaker Kate Shenton, who marries horror and comedy in her debut fictional film, EGOMANIAC, which will have it’s North American premiere on October 7th during the Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival.

  • Got What It Takes? Here’s Our October “31 FOR 31” Horror Movie Challenge!

    ,

    It’s that time of year again; the stores are breaking out the candy bags, the decorations are going up, and Halloween gets closer with every passing day. Of course, as we all await for the haunted attractions and repertory screenings to arrive, most fright fans are already breaking out their seasonal favorites and planning out their cinematic calendars. But for the few tried-and-true horror fans, October is much more than the spookiest month of the year; it’s an out-and-out challenge to catch as many fright films as possible, which has led to the “31 for 31” challenge in which horrorheads attempt to watch one macabre movie a day for the entire month. So with that in mind, FANGORIA is officially setting out to tackle the 31 for 31 challenge, and if you’ve got what it takes, you can play along too!

  • James Gunn-penned “BELKO EXPERIMENT” Acquired by Blumhouse, Orion Pictures

    ,

    Even though he may be best known to audiences as the director of Marvel’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY films, James Gunn will always have a home in the horror genre. After all, Gunn did cut his teeth on such terror titles as TROMEO & JULIET, SLITHER, SUPER, LOLLIPOP CHAINSAW, or DAWN OF THE DEAD (2004). And while we may not know when- or if- Gunn will ever return to the director’s chair within the genre, we do know that fans may see his latest horror production, THE BELKO EXPERIMENT, sooner rather than later, as Deadline reports the film has been acquired by Blumhouse and Orion Pictures!
