  • Exclusive Q&A: Director Nick Simon talks Craven, Killers & “THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS”

    ,

    Last year, the horror world lost one of its most beloved icons: filmmaker Wes Craven, the man behind such chilling classics as THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, SCREAM and more. Not only was Craven a fantastic artist in his own right, but he was an incredibly generous man in the world of horror, helping as producer to shepherd the directorial careers of Robert Kurtzman, Patrick Lussier, and John Gulager. And before his untimely passing, Craven helped to bring one final cinematic vision to the screen, ushering up-and-coming filmmaker Nick Simon for THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS.

  • FANGO Flashback: “LAKE MUNGO”

    ,,

    While much can be said about the stylistic and tonal differences between faux-doc horror and found footage, the most prominent difference between the subgenres is the illusion of transparency. As any genre fan can tell you, found footage does its damnedest to downplay transparency, playing everything mostly straight-faced and therefore crafting many of the tired, repetitive trademarks of those films. However, faux-doc horror works so well because it appears to be on-the-level with the audience, offering multiple perspectives, editing, music and an atmosphere of truth that informs the execution.

  • NYC! See “YOU’RE NEXT” On The Big Screen And Win A Mondo Vinyl Soundtrack LP!

    ,

    For this writer’s money, there’s few horror offerings in the new millennium that offered as much simultaneous fun and tension than Adam Wingard’s YOU’RE NEXT. Criminally underappreciated at the time of its release, I have to admit that it’s been satisfying to watch YOU’RE NEXT’s audience build since it’s 2013 release, and even more satisfying to see Wingard & Barrett emerge as top talents in the genre since. However, if you’re in the cult audience of YOU’RE NEXT and missed out on catching it theatrically, you’re in luck: not only is Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers bringing YOU’RE NEXT back to the big screen next week, but one fright fan will be going home with the new limited edition Mondo YOU’RE NEXT vinyl LP!

  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: Joe & Pat get hot over ‘Lust’ on “WE’LL SEE YOU IN HELL”!

    ,,,

    Since the announcement of their new format, it was never much of a question if “Lust” would be among the first deadly sins covered on WE’LL SEE YOU IN HELL. After all, longtime listeners can attest to the number of times Joe & Pat’s commentaries would go off the rails with stories of their lust and the many awkward, often terrible places it took them. And so it should be no surprise that Joe and Pat dedicate their third sin-centric episode to Lust this week on WE’LL SEE YOU IN HELL!
