  • Trailer: “CARVER,” A Slasher from 14 Year-old Filmmaker Emily DiPrimio

    In a way, this is perfect. When do slashers appeal to horror fans most? I’d argue when we’re teens, and the often charged up, youth-oriented sensibilities of the subgenre fall right in line with our adolescence. Fitting then, 14 year-old Emily DiPrimio wasn’t just content to watch them, but get out and craft one herself. It’s now complete and the young filmmaker has unveiled the first trailer for CARVER.

    “TWIN PEAKS: THE ENTIRE MYSTERY” (Blu-ray Review)

    When CBS and Paramount Pictures teamed to bring TWIN PEAKS: THE ENTIRE MYSTERY to Blu-ray this summer, there was no question as to whether or not this would be the definitive home release of the series and prequel film, FIRE WALK WITH ME. The concept of a definitive set pales in comparison to the reality: a massive 10-disc set that felt as physically dense as the content it held within. In an age where physical media is being given the short shrift time and time again, TWIN PEAKS: THE ENTIRE MYSTERY is any tried-and-true genre fan’s golden ticket.

    FANGORIA Sponsors Fantastic Fest 2014 Shorts Programs; Lineup Announced!

    Short Films are one of the most thrilling aspects of a festival.

Sad then, the short film conversation can often remain at festivals or in industry circles. In hoping to change that, even a bit, FANGORIA is quite proud to be the official sponsor of the Fantastic Fest 2014 Shorts Programs.
