    Joel Edgerton’s Blumhouse Collaboration Titled; Dated

    While many of us stateside cinephiles know Joel Edgerton as an actor, having risen to prominence in the past decade including taking up a MacReady-esque role in THE THING prequel, Australian audiences also know Edgerton as a successful screenwriter in his own right. Having penned the amazing modern noir THE SQUARE and crafted the story for the intense post-apocalyptic thriller THE ROVER, it was only a matter of time before Edgerton brought his behind-the-camera talents to Hollywood. And now that time has come, with Blumhouse having slated Edgerton’s debut as writer-director for a 2015 release, and offering the first official synopsis for the fright flick.

    Last week, FANGORIA’s monthly Dead Right Horror Trivia Game in Los Angeles was once again a tense battle between industry experts.

    Schwarzenegger’s Zombie Drama “MAGGIE” Finally Gets a Trailer!

    Personally speaking, with THE WALKING DEAD being as big as it was, I can’t remember the last time a feature length zombie film has drawn such curiosity and anticipation as Henry Hobson’s MAGGIE. Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin in a film that looks markedly different than most undead terror tales, the film was famously pulled from last year’s Toronto Film Festival after being acquired by Lionsgate, and leaving the film to premiere at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. And now, fright fans have their first chance to see what MAGGIE is all about, with the trailer finally being released earlier today.

    “THE X-FILES” Re-opened for 6-Episode Event Series in 2016

    Who knew that when THE X-FILES debuted back in 1993, it was destined to end up becoming a massive hit; a pop culture touchstone for which all genre TV, from supernatural sagas to crime procedurals, would be measured by? The show lasted for nine seasons (and two movies) through its world-building, its ability to sustain suspense, and its amazing feat of parlaying it two stars’ chemistry and sexual tension into being one of the primary curiosities in a show that revolved around uncovering evidence of extraterrestrials and government conspiracies.

    FANTASTICA Presents: The Circle of Fright

    If there’s any singular philosophy that has been proven time and time again, it would be that history does indeed repeat itself. And as much as that philosophy is valid in terms of politics, social dynamics and pop culture as a whole, it’s also very true in cinema, especially in the horror genre. While nostalgia may reign supreme in the horror genre, or at least it has been for the past decade and a half, the new content on both the independent and studio level have largely been inspired by or outright pull from techniques of horror past. And with the constantly changing marketplace that has seen the rise of VOD and streaming, the genre has struggled to figure out what will be the next trend in horror, even despite a glut of imaginative independent ideas by talented filmmakers laying in development hell.

    “DIGGING UP THE MARROW” (Blu-ray Review)

    With most films, especially in the horror genre, it’s always best to go in with as little knowledge as possible as to what’s coming as to prevent entering with unfair expectations. After all, as reviewers, we have an obligation to approach all projects for review with an open mind and as little baggage as possible; we’re champions of cinema, and should always be looking to raise it upon our shoulders than push it under our feet. Yet with some films, such as DIGGING UP THE MARROW, the film is so tied into the filmmaker’s DNA that the overall viewing experience will, somehow, someway, be tampered by one’s take on director/star Adam Green. If you’re a fan, or indifferent, or unknowing of Green’s past work, MARROW will work on many levels, and from this writer’s review some weeks back, the film is both a narrative and technical success for Green and Co. But if you’re actively not a fan of Green, MARROW won’t do much to change that, as Green or Green’s properties are referenced in almost every scene in this film.
