  • “NIGHTMARES” (1983; Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    Largely lost to the mists of time and forever lurking in the considerable critical and commercial shadow cast by fellow horror anthology CREEPSHOW, released less than a year earlier, director Joseph Sargent’s endearingly guileless 1983 omnibus NIGHTMARES is not nearly as bereft of charm or cohesion as its reputation or detractors suggest.

  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: “THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW” takes you to “The Suitors’ Ward”

    ,,,

    The holidays are upon us, horror hounds, and just in time for Christmas, FANGORIA has a surprise in store for fans of the FANGORIA Podcast Network. Though THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW has spun yarns that are gruesome, spine-chilling and just plain wrong over the course of its previous seven episodes, this week’s slice is something a bit different than one might expect. In fact, this week’s installment of THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW has more heart and soul than our regular tales of terror, offering the tragic tale of “The Suitors’ Ward.”

    ,,,

And with 2015 nearly in our rearview, FANGORIA has decided to catalog our favorite offerings from televised terror titles from the past year…

  • Stream to Scream: “PROXY”

    ,,

    If there’s anything that can definitively be said about a horror film like PROXY, it would be that the film is not for everyone. For those who appreciate more scare-based, supernatural outings, PROXY is not the film for you, and will likely test your threshold for transgressive content. On the flip side of the coin, those whose horror obsession filters down to chasing the dragon that is shocking content, PROXY might be a bit too far into the contemplative, artistic side for those merely expecting bloody viscera. However, for those whom PROXY does latch its claws onto, the film is a mesmerizing, poetic experience that few films can rival, provoking ideological thoughts and a jaw-dropping narrative that you otherwise might not find in even the majority of independent fright fare.

  • “THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN’T DIE” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    For cult-minded fright fanatics, there will always be an unironic spot in our hearts for old, bonkers sci-fi horrors of the ‘50s and ‘60s. Often amalgamations between psychological thrillers and creature features, these films preyed upon the fears of progressive science as a breeding ground for deviancy and god complexes with frequently insane results. Luckily for those who adore these strange cinematic time capsules, one of the craziest and surprisingly well-crafted entries from this era has made its way to the high definition world courtesy of Scream Factory: THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN’T DIE!

  • FANGO Flashback: “BUBBA HO-TEP”

    ,,

    One of the most common complaints this writer hears from hardcore horrorheads is that contemporary scare fare lacks the heart of their predecessors. While there’s always been mean, merciless horror throughout the years, especially those caught in the crossfire of the slasher booms, there is a fair amount of truth to that sentiment. Though that doesn’t mean there aren’t impressively crafted or genuinely terrifying horror offerings nowadays, the organic sense of adventure, character and justice is much less common these days as opposed to the fright films of the ‘80s and ‘90s. Yet perhaps that makes modern horror with that old school heart and soul much more valuable to die-hard fans, which in turn crafts a specific legacy from which a film can gain a second life.
