    Exclusive Trailer: Audrey Cummings’ “BERKSHIRE COUNTY”

    For those ingratiated in the L.A. horror scene, one of the most buzzed-about genre titles as of late was Audrey Cummings’ BERKSHIRE COUNTY. Having won awards at the Chicago Horror Film Festival, Atlanta’s HorrorQuest fest, Phoenix’s FearCon and Toronto’s Blood in the Snow Film Festival, the indie home invasion flick won the attention of the horror community when it won the Best Feature Award at Shriekfest, making Cummings the first female director to earn the award. And now, with the film’s Canadian release getting closer by the day, FANGORIA has the exclusive new trailer for BERKSHIRE COUNTY!

    “DIRECTOR’S COMMENTARY: TERROR OF FRANKENSTEIN” (Stanley Film Festival Review)

    When you have a legitimately fantastic and unique concept for a film, making said movie can feel like a game of basketball. You can hold on to the ball tight, you can show off fancy moves just because you’ve got a leg up on the competition, and you can exude a true show of confidence in every step you take with that ball. However, at the end of the day, all that matters is that the ball makes it into the net, and that you get credit for the points that you make. And other times, you can drop the ball, and perhaps someone else might pick up the ball one day and deliver on that promise that you had.

    “VALLEY OF THE SASQUATCH” (Film Review)

    One of the oldest North American myths of all time, it’s no surprise that the Sasquatch (a/k/a Bigfoot, Yeti, etc.) is still prevalent in the imagination of so many today. Living in the forests within our suspension of disbelief, the Sasquatch can take on any form we’d like it to, and therefore not only can it exist in our wildest dreams, but also our darkest nightmares. And while some films, like WILLOW CREEK and EXISTS, provide a painting of the Sasquatch as a territorial and animalistic monster, VALLEY OF THE SASQUATCH offers something much more benign and conscious, even if it’s similarly terrifying in its own way.

    The Disappearance of Garret Weaver: My Stanley Film Festival Experience

    After learning about the Stanley Film Festival last year, I knew that the festival was going to be a necessary destination in 2015. It had everything that this writer could have ever asked for in a horror festival: an interactive horror immersion game, a line-up of reportedly fantastic genre titles and a legendary location that’s supposedly one of the most haunted estates in America. So when I learned that I would be representing FANGORIA at the beloved festival, I knew that I would be in for a treat, although admittedly, I had no idea truly what I would be walking into.

    “BATES MOTEL: Season 3, Episode 9″ (TV Review)

    After their strongest run to date, this writer must admit that he’s disappointed in the narrative decisions made in the ninth episode of BATES MOTEL’s third season. All the character development, tension and wickedness of the previous eight episodes have all but been cast aside for the generic in-town drama that brought down and frustrated horror fans throughout the first two seasons. And of course, it’s no coincidence that this just happens to come about when Bradley inexplicably enters the foray, a character who not many missed and whose fate is all too apparent.

    While most horror fans may know Jessica Cameron from her burgeoning status as an indie scream queen in such films as CAMEL SPIDERS, TO JENNIFER and SILENT NIGHT, others know Cameron from her endeavors as an up-and-coming director in the horror genre as well. Her first film, TRUTH OR DARE, has made the rounds in the festival and convention circuit for 2 years now, and now, Cameron is ready for the world to take a look at her next fright film, MANIA.

    Event Report: “TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE LIVE!” at the 2015 Stanley Film Festival

    From everything I could gather out of last year’s Stanley Film Festival, one of the most fun and engaging events was none other than the live rendition of TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE, Glenn McQuaid and Larry Fessenden’s series of macabre radio plays. Ripe with excellent writing, strong performances and the live spectacle of foley work and musical accompaniment, TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE was the highlight of FANGORIA’s coverage last year at Stanley Film Festival. So with high expectations in mind, this writer made sure the live TALES was at the top of his agenda at the Stanley Film Festival, especially once I heard both Barbara Crampton and Leon Vitali would be among the performers.

    Exclusive Still, Q&A: Director John Portanova on “VALLEY OF THE SASQUATCH”

    Not too long ago, FANGORIA revealed the exclusive trailer for John Portanova’s VALLEY OF THE SASQUATCH, an independent horror picture that proudly puts the North American monster front and center.
