    “THE DEN” (Movie Review)

    The anonymity of the internet is the monster of THE DEN, a new POV/Found Footage title that aims (for at least the first half) to tell its story entirely from a computer screen. Opening with what must be a self-aware cheap jolt, director Zachary Donohue then unfurls a wide spectrum of malicious intent that Elizabeth (and by proxy you) is prey to by simply just being online. Viral pranks, swinging dicks and the harsh invalidation of your existence by someone immediately deciding they don’t want to chat with you give away to true evil, of course. As a film essentially about the horrors that await us online, THE DEN must go big in its cautionary tale and it does, alternately being effectively eerie and stumbling along the way.

    From the FANGORIA Vault: “FRIDAY THE 13TH” (1980)

    With the recent barrage of snowstorms over here at the FANGORIA archives, it’s an understatement to say that summer cannot come fast enough. Summer often holds dear memories for this writer, whether it’s of drive-in fright films of yesteryear or the slasher renaissance that would fill the summers of my post-SCREAM adolescence. In fact, each generation likely had a horror film to impact their summers, whether it be JAWS to keep people away from the ocean en masse or FRIDAY THE 13TH to make summer camp even creepier.
