    MTV’s “SCREAM: THE SERIES” is going to be GREAT

    You know what? I like to consider myself a fair man. I listen to a variety of music spreading across multiple genres and artists of all walks of life. I watch films regardless of era, production value, premise, or even general basic appeal. I like to give any and everything a shot, since even if something isn’t for me, it’s likely going to work for somebody else, and if it does work for me, then I will then have something new to respect and learn from as an audience member. But there are some things that, once I see the preview, I start to feel bad vibes, and even though I’ll give it a fair shake, SCREAM: THE SERIES have set those bad vibes to uncomfortable levels.

    Exclusive: Death Waltz to Release “MADMAN” Original Soundtrack For The First Time

    While the majority of content hitting audiences nowadays is turning towards the digital marketplace, there’s still a devoted and loyal audience for physical products. Whether it be for Blu-rays, action figures or vinyl pressings, the collectors market is still alive and breathing, and now, more obscure titles than ever are getting their time to shine years and years later. And in the case of the 1982 slasher cult classic MADMAN, that spotlights going to last a little longer in 2015, as FANGORIA exclusively learned over the weekend that the beloved synth soundtrack for MADMAN will be released for the very first time via Death Waltz Records!

    Dominic Cooper in final talks for Custer in AMC’s “PREACHER”

    The comic book adaptation bubble keeps growing and growing, with no signs of a pop in the immediate future. With the popularity of comic-based TV shows such as ARROW, AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D, and the recent horror-tinged addition to the fold, iZOMBIE, making waves on the small screen, it only makes sense that AMC would be rolling the dice on another comic adaptation series, what with THE WALKING DEAD being the crown jewel in their cable empire.

    FANTASTICA Q&A: Bill Plympton talks “CHEATIN'”, Part Two

    As filmmakers change with the times, it’s not often that a classically-informed filmmaker will retain their talents and sensibilities to their fullest extent. This is even more rare when it comes to animation, especially as the production side of things jumps from hand-drawn to digital. But luckily for audiences, Bill Plympton is that rare case, with his unfiltered, mature cinematic voice still in tact for his latest surreal animation outing, CHEATIN’. With CHEATIN’ now in theaters, FANTASTICA recently caught up with Plympton to talk animation, humor and what’s next for the groundbreaking storyteller…

    “THE HARVEST” (Movie Review)

    Director John McNaughton secured his horror rep with the insinuating authenticity of HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER, and following a couple of more fanciful fear concepts in the intervening years, he returns to the real world with THE HARVEST. Only this time, there’s more than a touch of grim fairy tale to the film.

  • FANGO Flashback: “MINDWARP”

    For those who have been FANGORIA fans from throughout our history may remember the birth of FANGORIA Films in 1992, a legacy that still echoes to this day with our “FANGORIA Presents” titles and various endeavors in production. But over twenty years ago, FANGORIA Films started off with three original productions, with the inaugural entry being one that encapsulated both FANGORIA and STARLOG sensibilities at the time and starred two of FANGO’s favorite genre talents. That film, Steve Barnett’s MINDWARP, didn’t quite set the box office on fire, but has amassed a loyal following over the years, culminating in Twilight Time’s recent Blu-ray release of the film. So with FANGORIA’s recent COVER TO COVER release paying tribute to our history of horror, this writer sat down to revisit the first FANGORIA Film.

  • Rest in Peace, Richard Dysart (1929 – 2015)

    While horror fans hold filmmakers and SFX artists in high esteem, there’s a reason why the horror community becomes so attached to its performers. For a genre that’s meant to explore our nightmares and evoke fears we never knew we had, an actor who can inject the material with pathos and authenticity can make or break that experience as a whole, especially if they can do so multiple times. And hence, when noted genre performers do pass on, it’s almost as if we have lost a member of a community as opposed to someone we’ve only known on the big screen as fictional characters. That’s certainly the case this week, as the exceptional Richard Dysart has passed away at the age of 86.

    “SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK” To Receive Documentary Treatment

    Adore it or fear it, the revered and reviled children’s book series SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK is about to receive a documentary film treatment. FANGORIA #339 explored the “Satanic Panic” era in which SCARY STORIES acted as a sacrificial lamb, and more to the point, the lasting impression it had on contemporary artists within the horror genre, innovative and invigorating filmmakers like the Soska Sisters, and Karen Lam, and the duo of Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunston, who were originally slated to bring the eerie campfire/folklore tales to the silver screen.
