  • Stream to Scream: “MOCKINGBIRD”

    ,,

    When watching a film like MOCKINGBIRD, which essentially plays as a found footage home invasion film constructed like a puzzlebox, a question arises in the head of the viewer: if a film commits so many cinematic crimes yet remains effortlessly gripping, can one consider it good? Make no mistake, even the most predictable moments of MOCKINGBIRD were tense, scary and even a bit unsettling. But for every moment that highlights the glorious aspects of using a found footage perspective, there is an equal moment of logical flaw, inconsistency and an overall problematic narrative to cancel it out. It’s an interesting dynamic, even if for the wrong reasons, and it almost feels as if MOCKINGBIRD is too tied to minimalism for its own good, even though the minimalism is what makes the film terrifying.

  • “UNTIL DAWN” (Video Game Review)

    ,,

    Before I get into this review, I should at least be forward about one thing: I’ve been out of the gaming loop for a long time. Not out of a lack of interest; video games have long been a part of my life and the myriad commercials for new releases piques my interest as much as the next gamer. However, this writer’s workload has been way too busy for way too long to really be able to focus and appreciate a video game that takes hours upon hours to finish. Yet when I caught wind of UNTIL DAWN, a Supermassive Games Production from the minds of Glass Eye Pix cohorts Graham Reznick, this writer broke his dry spell as this game would be worthy of my undivided attention.

  • R.I.P. WES CRAVEN (1939-2015)

    ,,

    We at FANGORIA are speechless. After the loss of the Great Christopher Lee earlier this year, it is both shocking and deeply upsetting to learn of the passing of filmmaker and horror movie maverick Wes Craven, one of our founding fathers of contemporary fear. There’s not much to say about Wes, the Father of Freddy, that you , the FANGORIA reader, don’t already know. Wes was a man who gave us a celebrated series of dark, edgy and energized genre films that defined their times. Some were more definitive than others, but none were devoid of interest or ambition and all were driven by an often covert intellect.
