  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: Lurid Love is in the Air on “THE RANTS MACABRE”

    ,,

    After two weeks of Lunch Hour Reviews, THE RANTS MACABRE is back to discuss wicked romances to carry on the spirit of Valentine’s Day. But rather than dip back to the time-honored classics of Gothic Romance or the more recognizable tales of love & death, Darren & Mindy are going to a much darker decade for this week’s discussion: the ‘90s!

  • “THE MUTILATOR” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    One of the benefits of being a relatively younger fright fan is being able to see the cult classics and eerie obscurities of the ’80s for the first time in this day and age. Whether it’s insane fright fare like BLOOD RAGE, the campy fun of MADMAN or the ridiculous proto-slashers of BLOOD AND LACE, they certainly don’t make ’em how they used to, and without the baggage of the bigger franchises looming over them as they must have upon their initial release, these bad boys often take a life of their own. And somewhere among the weirder horror offerings is THE MUTILATOR, a brutal oddity that, for all of its pacing and dialogue issues, more than makes up for it in the gore department with a stylish scene or two to help keep things interesting.

  • FANGO Flashback: “THIR13EN GHOSTS”

    ,,

    Having grown up as a horror hungry genre fan in the ‘90s, this writer will always have a certain affection to the largely maligned fright fare of the decade as well as the early ‘00s. This means, no matter their myriad flaws and frustrations, I will often find myself defending the post-SCREAM slasher flicks, bloated animal attack horror and even the industrial ghost stories that attempted to add a HELLRAISER vibe to classic haunting tales. In that last category sits the heyday of Dark Castle films, who through several horror offerings, gave grislier, largely imaginative remakes of William Castle’s golden-age nightmares, with the strongest likely being Steve Beck’s THIR13EN GHOSTS.

  • Event Report: “The Loving Dead” Interactive Experience at NYZ Apocalypse!

    ,

    While some people find Valentine’s Day to be a celebration of romance and love, others find it to be, in no uncertain terms, a nightmare. Yet even with the most tumultuous relationships, it could always be worse: there could be zombies running around, willing to speed up that “‘til death do us part” aspect. And at the Long Island’s NYZ Apocalypse over this past Valentine’s Day Weekend, the interactive haunted attraction aimed to test the strength of relationships by pitting them against a horde of unstoppable, undead prom dates!

  • “FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    While Robert Rodriguez’s El Rey Network continues to grow with each passing month, with various events, marathons and original programs (including the fantastic DIRECTOR’S CHAIR series) helping that growth, the channel is likely still best known for FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES. Building upon the mythos established in the film of the same name, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN’s second season saw the Gecko Brothers, Satanico Pandemonium, the Fuller Family and all the various outliers go into bold new territory. And now, fright fans have the opportunity to sink their teeth into FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON in a newly packaged Blu-ray set, courtesy of Entertainment One.

  • Event Report: Freaky Figures Shine at New York Toy Fair 2016!

    ,

    Despite being one of the biggest collectible conventions in the country, even this writer had to think twice about braving the frigid temperatures of New York City this weekend for the 2016 NY Toy Fair. Nevertheless, as the resident writer for our weekly Toys of Terror column, harsh weather just had to be an occupational hazard as I trekked down to the Jacob Javitz Center on Saturday to give horror hounds their first looks at 2016’s biggest and boldest fright figures!

    ,,

    With voting season now open on the FANGORIA Chainsaw Awards, fans are putting their minds at work to select their favorites out of every potential nominee. When it came to Best TV Make-Up/Creature FX, there were many deserving choices who didn’t unfortunately make the cut, including PENNY DREADFUL, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES and ASH VS. EVIL DEAD. Nevertheless, with only five fright programs that could land the nominations, FANGORIA had to narrow it down to the absolute bloody best of Make-Up/Creature FX on terror television in 2015.
