    Shadowvision: “LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS” (1986)

    Welcome to Shadowvision, a regular column in which Fangoria.com revisits modern horror films in black-and-white. The purpose is to analyze these films through a new lens, seeing if the classically informed viewing experience will give a new angle to familiar images. If you’d like to watch along at home, it’s simple: go into your TV settings and desaturate the picture completely, then adjust the contrast and brightness to fit either standard or high definition.

  • Exclusive Q&A: “POKER NIGHT” director Greg Francis talks Eklund and Perlman!

    For this writer, one of 2014’s biggest end-of-year surprises was POKER NIGHT, which was an exceptionally engaging and clever horror flick that mixed the elements of a kidnapping thriller and dark comedy. Yet the film plays as well as it does for many reasons: POKER NIGHT not only has an exceptional cast, featuring Ron Perlman, Giancarlo Esposito, Beau Mirchoff and Michael Eklund, but a truly talented writer/director in Greg Francis. With the film hitting home media this week from XLrator, FANGORIA chatted with Francis about two of POKER NIGHT’s most prolific performers…

    “LOVE AT FIRST BITE” / “ONCE BITTEN” Double Feature (Blu-ray Review)

    In Scream Factory’s attempts to bring unheralded gems of genre cinema to Blu-ray, the company has also culled some of the most beloved, but more obscure, cult classics into the fold as well. Whether it be sleazy, insane or outright absurd, Scream Factory is giving these titles new life among their creepy catalog. And while sometimes this leads to some truly exceptional rediscoveries, it also occasionally leads to cult misfires as well, such as the Double Feature Blu-ray of Howard Storm’s ONCE BITTEN and Stan Dragoti’s LOVE AT FIRST BITE.

    “VAMPIRE’S KISS” / “HIGH SPIRITS” Double Feature (Blu-ray Review)

    While Scream Factory has often brought many underappreciated genre classics to the world of high definition, they’ve also done a great service to cult film fans by bringing some of horror’s most odd titles to Blu-ray as well. Yet as of late, Scream Factory has found greater success in bringing these demented discoveries to audiences as double features, which of course comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. And, particularly, Scream Factory has used this business model to help bring vintage horror comedies to fans, offering a safety net to an unpredictable subgenre that offers the likes of Robert Bierman’s VAMPIRE’S KISS and Neil Jordan’s HIGH SPIRITS.

    “RPG: REAL PLAYING GAME” (Film Review)

    By now, the general conceit of RPG: REAL PLAYING GAME is oh-so-familiar to genre fans: a group of strangers are forced to kill each other in an interactive game run by a sinister entity. Whether it be BATTLE ROYALE, THE HUNGER GAMES, THE RUNNING MAN, GAMER or the multitude of other films running with that concept, RPG does have select differences in its execution that makes it stand out more to the horror crowd. But even despite some ingenious flourishes, interesting character drama and the constraints of its budget, the conceptual familiarity is the least of RPG’s problems.
