    Fantastic Fest Shorts Preview: Ben Steiner and “THE STOMACH”

    You’ve not seen a medium like this. Ben Steiner’s THE STOMACH, likely described as a genre hybrid and seamless in being such, is a fantastic and fantastical piece of work. Whereas spiritualists and psychic mediums are often romanticized, or at the very least cast in a more classical horror light, this stark short presents a harsher, sadder existence. One where the gift manifests in a strange, abject manner and the person its bestowed on is at the mercy of those with nefarious needs.

    David Cronenberg’s “MAPS TO THE STARS” (TIFF Movie Review)

    I’ve said this before, but to fully appreciate and embrace the work of mad Canadian movie maverick David Cronenberg, you must view his films as an arc—a trajectory of obsession that begins with his earliest shorts like CRIMES OF THE FUTURE, to his first features like SHIVERS and RABID, continuing with less fantastical but no less visceral fare SPIDER, CRASH and COSMOPOLIS and climaxing (literally in some sequences) with his latest immersion into weird human behavior, the malevolent Cannes hit MAPS TO THE STARS.

    Shadowvision: “RE-ANIMATOR”

    Welcome to Shadowvision, a regular column in which Fangoria.com revisits modern horror films in black and white. The purpose is to analyze these films through a new lens, seeing if the classically informed viewing experience will give a new angle to familiar images. If you’d like to watch along at home, it’s simple: go into your TV settings and desaturate the picture completely, then adjust the contrast and brightness to fit either standard or high definition.

    “THE REACH” (TIFF Review)

    THE REACH is a great work of pulp delirium masquerading as accessible mainstream entertainment. Starring, as it does, the son of Spartacus himself, legendary actor Michael Douglas (who also produced and developed the project) and baited for the ladies with youthful hard bodied hunk Jeremy Irvine (WAR HORSE), THE REACH exceeds its potentially pedestrian lure and conventional set-up and ends up being something far more daring and aesthetically evolved. An existential, bizarre western/horror hybrid, it plays like an expanded ROAD RUNNER short by way of Werner Herzog’s FITZCARRALDO and THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME, peppered with macho swagger and a distinctly European sense of operatic grandeur.  And like the similarly testosterone-soaked thriller THE GREY, if marketed right THE REACH could—and should—find its cult very quickly.

  • Raven Banner To Release Animated Last Chapter of “TODD & THE BOOK OF PURE EVIL” to Canada

    Before the contemporary explosion of horror on television, there were a select few horror comedy series that fell prey to early cancellation. These series would later find cult fandom on streaming platforms, home media and cable syndication, and few had such a stirring fanbase as Canada’s TODD AND THE BOOK OF PURE EVIL. And it’s said stirring fanbase that also helped revive the show for an animated, feature-length series finale, entitled TOOD AND THE BOOK OF PURE EVIL: THE END OF THE END, on Indiegogo, doubling the intended $75,000 goal.
