  • The Dreadful Ten: 10 Awesome ’90s Horror Films!

    ,,

    As someone who grew up watching the many horror films of the ’90s, it’s always a bit disappointing to hear the decade get so much flack for its contributions to the genre. Sure, the ’80s are a tough act to follow, considering how many phenomenal, practical FX-driven fright films were spawned during that time, but the ’90s has had its fair share of awesome scare fare, most of which are miles more memorable that the decades that have come since. Even the guilty pleasures of the ’90s- your DEEP BLUE SEAs and ANACONDAs and what-have-you- are much easier to defend than some of the stinkers of the ’80s! So with that on our macabre mind, FANGORIA has decided to list off ten absolutely awesome ’90s horror offerings for your creepy consideration!

  • “BITE” (Film Review)

    ,,

    Since the heydey of body horror in the late ‘80s/ early ‘90s, the gruesome subgenre has resurfaced sporadically in recent times. As CGI becomes less of an industry standard among the low-budget horror realm, horror titles such as AMERICAN MARY, TUSK, and ANTIVIRAL have taken advantage of the power of practical FX work when applied to malevolent body modification. Yet while many of these films rely on surgery-gone-mad or flesh rotting away to the elements, few modern body horror offerings go truly beyond the pale for their main mutation. However, if Chad Archibald’s BITE is any indication, that tide could be turning in favor of the bold and ambitious side of the subgenre.

  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: “THE RANTS MACABRE” celebrates Mother’s Day with “PSYCHO”!

    ,,,

    It’s not much of a surprise to horror fans to see mothers at the center of horror films throughout the years. Whether they’re the protagonist (THE BABADOOK, ROSEMARY’S BABY), the antagonist (MOTHER’S DAY, FRIDAY THE 13TH) or somewhere in between (MANIAC, SANTA SANGRE), a mother can bring emotional and psychological baggage to a horror project that other characters simply cannot. And no cinematic mother is as iconic or essential to the genre as Norma Bates, and with her on the mind, THE RANTS MACABRE celebrates Mother’s Day by revisiting Alfred Hitchcock’s PSYCHO!

  • “BATES MOTEL: Season 4, Episode 8” (TV Review)

    ,,

    Episode 8 of BATES MOTEL is titled “Unfaithful” and the title couldn’t be more apt, as that’s exactly how Norman views his mother’s position with her new husband. Of course, Norma justifies her marriage and protective motherhood as “trying to protect” everyone from everything but for this viewer, the act is wearing thin. As for Norman, his anger and newfound inner brat is, while unappealing, not unwarranted. It becomes evident to him that he doesn’t fit into these new lives which leaves him feeling a growing resentment, planting more seeds towards the inevitable.
