  • “THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DOOR” (Film Review)

    ,,

    In the film’s favor, THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DOOR isn’t the trainwreck most people expect to see from the studio system nowadays, nor is it anything exceptional as well. Simply put, THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DOOR is a fairly unremarkable exercise in horror cinema, managing to be both generic and effective simultaneously. And while the film wears its influences on its sleeve- in fact, similarities to PET SEMATARY are uncanny at times-, THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DOOR rehashes and repurposes notable genre tactics because they’re known to work, and in that case, THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DOOR is creepy, if not truly original in nature.

  • “THE CORPSE OF ANNA FRITZ” (Film Review)

    ,,

    If you’re going to be tackling a movie about necrophilia, there’s a good chance that it’s likely going to be a polarizing experience. However, as fate would have it, necrophilia is simply the beginning of the wicked path shown in THE CORPSE OF ANNA FRITZ, an exercise in tension that will grip the audience from start to finish. Yet if there’s anything that’s truly shocking about THE CORPSE OF ANNA FRITZ, it’s how well director Hector Hernandez Vicens makes conventional story beats seem so unconventional via the use of misdirection that would put a magician to shame.

  • Found Footage… FOR REAL: Studio ADI’s Amazing Practical Work on “THE THING” (2011)

    ,,

    One of the reasons that horror hounds have become so apprehensive towards remakes is the idea that the genre’s history is being rewritten for a new generation. While this is often an irrational line of thought, as the original films never go away and often see a deluxe reissue as a result, the resentment is often built off of legitimate concerns: more often than not, contemporary remakes don’t quite reach the heights of their predecessors and resort of lazier filmmaking techniques. In fact, most horror fans are more worried about new fans becoming accustomed to a remake with CGI and frustrating plot retreads than the original films themselves, and this is why fans often cry out for remakes to go the extra mile to prove their worth.

  • FANGO Flashback: “WHEN A STRANGER CALLS BACK”

    ,,

    For whatever reason, WHEN A STRANGER CALLS always seems to be given an underwhelming reception by fright fans, many of whom understand its legacy but perhaps haven’t seen it or misled by the fact that it never became as “essential” as other horror offerings of its era. Nevertheless, the film is incredibly intense, creepy as hell and impeccably acted, and the film’s leap from claustrophobic horror film to brooding thriller following the first act is a ballsy move that’s worth celebrating, especially in this day and age. However, as guilty as some may be with their ignorance towards the first film, this writer must admit that the same caution was taken personally with the film’s 15-year-late sequel, WHEN A STRANGER CALLS BACK.

  • “WAYWARD PINES” Season 2 Cast Confirmed; Premiere Date Announced

    ,

    Ushering in what turned out to be a big comeback for filmmaker M. Night Shymalan, WAYWARD PINES was a truly creepy event series, complete with eerie paranoia, incredible practical creatures and a damn fine cast to boot. However, thanks to the series’ massive success, the one-and-done model originally envisioned for the tale has been eschewed, as Fox announced soon afterwards that WAYWARD PINES would return for a second season. Now, Deadline has reported that WAYWARD PINES’ second season has secured its ensemble cast as well as a premiere date that is shockingly sooner than anyone could have predicted.

  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: “SPLAT CHAT” talks “MARTYRS” (2016) with The Goetz Brothers!

    ,,

    Horror fans are loyal, dedicated to their favorite works, and unsure how to feel about remakes. Alright, most of us straight up don’t like remakes, and struggle to maintain our open mindedness. On one hand, William Friedkin compares film remakes to various stage presentations of the same play. After all, is it so irrational for a director to recreate existing stories and characters in their own image, with the same artistic merit as an original? If it’s okay to adapt plays, comic books, novels, and video games, why not other films?

  • “THE FINAL PROJECT” (Movie Review)

    ,,

    THE FINAL PROJECT begins by addressing a question oft-unanswered in found-footage movies: Who found and is presenting the footage, and why? The first scene has a shadow-shrouded figure telling us he has put together the following visual document as “some type of effort to try and better understand what happened that night.”

  • “SHADOW GLASS #1” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    The Renaissance brought a lot of things to the world: math, science, big poofy collars, the end to that Debbie-downer known as the Middle Ages (I mean, right?). But despite its contribution to modern thought, it wasn’t all ballads and tight pants. With every step forward in progression, a deep undercurrent of hate and paranoia swept along its ruddy sewers, most notably with the early modern witch-hunts. For every pious Christian, there were five witches swarming around, eating babies and banging Satan; Dark Horse’s new comic, SHADOW GLASS, explores just that.
