  • “LAST GIRL STANDING” (NYC Horror Film Fest Review)

    ,,

    As clever and exciting as the SCREAM franchise has been over the years, one of the franchise’s implicit flaws was never quite looking at Sidney Prescott’s psychological ramifications following each surpassing incident. In fact, very few horror franchises have addressed the trauma of surviving a “horror movie” scenario, and the few that have rarely do so in a realistic manner. And it’s exactly that realism that Benjamin R. Moody’s LAST GIRL STANDING attempts to ground itself in, investigating the “final girl” archetype through a post-modern lense that offers one of the most engrossing subversions on the genre in quite some time.

  • “LUCIFER” Series & Comic Release Dates Announced

    ,

    If Satan was truly in charge of corrupting America’s youth, then DC’s LUCIFER is blowing the horn like a charismatic pied piper. A staple of not only DC/Vertigo’s repertoire, but the comic world in general, LUCIFER has finally hit it big after twenty six years with his very own TV show on FOX.  While the show has been long in development, with only a couple of TV spots to whet our appetites, a release date for the supernaturally charged series has finally been announced via Deadline: January 25th, 2016, on the heels of the premiere episode of THE X-FILES reboot/mini-series.

    ,,,

  • FANGO Flashback: “THE MIST”

    ,,

    In almost a tragic recurring theme in the horror genre, most of the films fright fans consider to be classics of the genre certainly were not received that way initially. Whether it be the many critically-lambasted post-HALLOWEEN efforts of John Carpenter, the direct-to-video dumps of FEAST and TRICK ‘R TREAT or the commercial failures such as THE MONSTER SQUAD and NIGHTBREED, most beloved terror titles have earned their esteemed reputations years, perhaps even decades after the fact. Yet few films have earned their prestigious post-release reputation more than Frank Darabont’s terrifying and tragic adaptation of Stephen King’s THE MIST, which truly has aged like a fine wine in the near-decade since its release.

  • “SOME KIND OF HATE” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    Following its world premiere at the 2015 Stanley Film Festival, SOME KIND OF HATE was this writer’s true, definitive frontrunner for the best horror film of the year. A clever, emotional twist on the long-dormant slasher subgenre, SOME KIND OF HATE brought a brutal, visceral vision to the big screen unlike anything this writer had before while establishing Adam Egypt Mortimer as a genre director to watch. And while Image/RLJ Entertainment gave the film a push during its VOD release in September, there are still many fright fans who have yet to give the film a shot. Now, with the film debuting on Blu-ray (exclusive to Best Buy until late next month), horror hounds have the perfect opportunity to catch up with the macabre movie, while fans of the film have a chance to check out the bigger picture of SOME KIND OF HATE.

  • “ALIEN: COVENANT” Gets Official Release Date, Story & Cast Details

    ,

    If you disregard the ALIEN VS. PREDATOR films as well as Ridley Scott’s PROMETHEUS, the last tried-and-true ALIEN effort was nearly 20 years ago with 1997’s ALIEN: RESURRECTION. However, with the ‘indefinite hold’ currently on Neill Blomkamp’s ALIEN effort (which would have seen both Hicks and Ripley back into the franchise), the best chance of seeing the Xenomorph back in proper form was Ridley Scott’s PROMETHEUS follow-up, which promised to bridge that prequel to Scott’s ’79 original. Yet today, in a surprise announcement, 20th Century Fox has revealed the official title for Scott’s second ALIEN prequel, entitled ALIEN: COVENANT, as well as the synopsis, returning PROMETHEUS cast and exactly when we’ll see the return of the ALIEN franchise.
