  • Q&A: Filmmaker Benjamin Moody talks “LAST GIRL STANDING”

    ,

    For most filmmakers, the easiest way to subvert the expectations of horror fans is to go meta. Yet for a lot of those films, that decision can sometimes land the film in parody or, perhaps worse, condescension, with little respect being paid to the material that is being manipulated. Yet with Benjamin Moody’s LAST GIRL STANDING, the horror is just as important as flipping the script on the slasher genre. With the film having played at many esteemed festivals and conventions, including Frightfest, NYC Horror Film Festival, and Texas Frightmare Weekend, LAST GIRL STANDING has been gaining momentum and praise as a clever, much-needed kick-in-the-pants for slasher fans, and now that the film has arrived on VOD and DVD from MPI, FANGORIA spoke with the film’s director, Benjamin Moody, about creating palpable drama out of petrifying dread…

  • Q&A: Actor Michael Pare on “THE SHELTER”

    ,

    For a film like THE SHELTER, a storyteller needs a versatile actor who can bring a genuinely sympathetic side out of a rather despicable anti-hero. Leave it to the one and only Michael Pare to do the job, with the cult film icon offering an incredible performance as a man trapped in a hell of his own creation. With the film now available on VOD, FANGORIA spoke to Pare about inhabiting THE SHELTER, working with John Fallon, and his supporting role in the upcoming fright film ABATTOIR…

  • Q&A: Filmmakers Joshua Zeman and Rachel Mills talk “THE KILLING SEASON”

    ,

    For one reason or another, the worldwide fascination with true crime stories and serial killers is nearing an all-time high in current pop culture. From groundbreaking podcasts to shocking docuseries, these opportunities to dig deeper into the world of real-life monsters (as well as the social circumstances that allow them to thrive) grant us a better understanding of the human mind, and what can be done, whether nationally or locally, to protect ourselves and others from these frightening fates. With A&E’s compelling new documentary series THE KILLING SEASON, filmmakers Joshua Zeman and Rachel Mills (of CROPSEY and KILLER LEGENDS fame) go into the harrowing story of the Long Island Serial Killer, and unveil a bigger picture on modern day serial killers that one might not find on the local news. With the series having premiered in the last week, FANGORIA caught up with Zeman and Mills to talk about their journey into THE KILLING SEASON.

  • Q&A: Producer Adrienne Biddle talks “THE MONSTER”

    ,

    If there’s anything that’s inherently true about the horror genre, it’s that you can’t beat the real thing. That’s never been more true than for Bryan Bertino’s THE MONSTER, a film that captures real emotion, real suspense, and a real creature performance to bring the titular terror to life. Yet to pull off a film with all three elements in the independent storytelling space, one needs a confident, trustworthy producer to keep the film on the tracks, and that’s where Bertino’s partner at Unbroken Pictures, Adrienne Biddle, comes in. With THE MONSTER now turning heads in theaters and on VOD, FANGORIA caught up with Biddle about her modus operandi, making THE MONSTER, and the ever-changing business of horror…

  • Q&A: Filmmaker Sheldon Renan talks “THE KILLING OF AMERICA”!

    ,

    In a time where it feels like our nation is turmoil and violence is at an obvious high, it’s scary to sit down and watch it all transpire. While it may seem as if things are happening for the first time in history, the long-lost and newly found and released (thanks to Severin) documentary, THE KILLING OF AMERICA, shows us that we’ve always been violent and there has always been a bloodlust across our nation. It’s scarier than any hockey mask-wearing slasher and it’s not only an important film but one which initiates a discussion about where we should go from here on out and what we should do about it. FANGO spoke with one of the film’s directors, Sheldon Renan about the film and what shocking effects it had on those involved in the making of the film.

  • “BEYOND THE WALLS” (TV Review)

    ,,

    A 3-Part TV Mini-series that premiered in the US earlier this year as a Shudder exclusive, BEYOND THE WALLS embodies all the elements of what truly makes this writer scared. There is not an onslaught of blood and gore, but rather a quiet, ever-building tension in the story and in the camerawork that satisfies.

  • The Dreadful Ten: 10 Underrated Stephen King Adaptations!

    ,,

    My personal love affair with horror began when I read Stephen King’s novel “CARRIE”. I was in middle school, and before “CARRIE” I’d had no idea that such twisted and demented stories existed. “CARRIE” woke up something potent and powerful inside me. Whether you want to call it a fascination or an obsession with horror, it was the dark ideas of Stephen King that brought it forth.

  • Q&A: Writer/Producer Joe Casey talks “OFFICER DOWNE”

    ,

    Considering the many page-to-screen comic book properties that have hit the cinemas in recent years, fans might think that they’ve seen it all. However, even those who prefer their superhero fare with blood and battery haven’t seen anything quite like the big screen adaptation of OFFICER DOWNE, a chaotic, over-the-top action epic that promises camp and carnage in equal measure. Based on the popular comic series from Joe Casey and Chris Burnham, C. Shawn Crahan’s OFFICER DOWNE is an ultra-violent fever dream, complete with killer nuns, undead supercops, and a whole lot more. With the film only mere hours from being unleashed unto the unsuspecting masses, FANGORIA spoke with Casey (who also served as writer/producer on the film) to talk about the process of bringing OFFICER DOWNE to life…
