  • Release Date, First Episode Revealed for “TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE” Season Three!

    ,

    As all fright fans know, it’s not easy to get a film made, especially any horror film with any ambition and imaginative concepts. However, while many horror filmmakers flock to television, some are thinking outside the box as a way to pursue their creative endeavors. And though the last season- entirely comprised of live performances- hit audiences nearly two years ago, filmmakers Larry Fessenden (WENDIGO) and Glenn McQuaid (I SELL THE DEAD) turned to the audio realm to fuel the minds of their cohorts via their radio plays TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE. Yet now, FANGORIA has some good news for fans of TALES, as well as a completely free way to get a terrifying taste of the show’s third season!

  • “FREAKS OF NATURE” (Movie Review)

    ,,

    Catching even genre fans off guard with its presence in theaters, FREAKS OF NATURE is in fact the vampires-meet-zombies-meet-aliens mashup filmed in 2013 as (the aptly titled) KITCHEN SINK. Now, after several nationwide-release date changes/delays, it has been abruptly retitled and dumped into token runs by Columbia Pictures (which didn’t even bother to print up a poster for the multiplex where this reviewer shared the prime opening-night show with maybe half a dozen people).

  • The Dreadful Ten: Top 10 Versions of “THE MONSTER MASH” from Bobby “Boris” Pickett

    ,,,

    It’s not very often that Halloween falls on a Saturday, but when it does, it poses a question to all lovers of festivities and frights: what “Monster Mash” should I play at my Halloween party? Obviously, with Bobby “Boris” Pickett having dedicated his life to performing the same song over and over with slight variations to the orchestration and lyrics, it’s not an easy choice to make and is guaranteed to lay on even more pressure to one’s Halloween plans. Luckily, FANGORIA’s resident novelty song expert and THE CONDEMNED enthusiast Madeleine Koestner took charge to provide horror hounds with the ten best Monster Mashes for their petrifying playlists.

  • NYCC ’15 Video Q&A: Producers Rand Ravich & Howard Gordon talk “LOOKINGLASS”

    ,

    Alongside the more genre-friendly LUCIFER and THE X-FILES, LOOKINGLASS looks to bring the hard-hitting action to sci-fi fans this upcoming year on FOX as they mix an old school detective story with an older school horror inspiration. Yet LOOKINGLASS is more than just star Rob Kazinsky playing a rejuvenated and supernaturally-abled badass avenging his own death; there’s also a bigger and more complicated story at hand, touching on subjects based out of controversial sciences and social commentary. Thankfully, FANGORIA was able to talk to producers Rand Ravich and Howard Gordon at New York Comic Con 2015 to shed some light on this Frankenstein story…

    LOOKINGLASS will debut on FOX in 2016. Stay tuned here at FANGORIA.com for on New York Comic Con and LOOKINGLASS!

  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: Special “HALLOWEEN” Bonus Episode of “WE’LL SEE YOU IN HELL”!

    ,,

    Halloween has come early this year, fright fans, as the FANGORIA Podcast Network has a treat for you all! Earlier this week, Joe DeRosa and Patrick Walsh dropped the latest episode of WE’LL SEE YOU IN HELL, sitting down to ramble through and occasionally lambast LEPRECHAUN. However, little did FANGORIA know that Joe and Pat had a seasonal surprise for us all, and somehow, they found a film on Netflix that might be even more incredulous than LEPRECHAUN… HALLOWEEN: RESURRECTION!

  • “THE BIRTH OF KITARO” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    Monsters known as “yokai” have been part of Japanese folklore for as long as people have had reasons to fear the dark. The spooky creatures have proved so popular that not only are they still prevalent in modern popular culture, but have even welcomed contemporary monsters such as the Slit-Mouthed Woman or the half corpse of the Teke-teke, who first gained attention in the late ‘70s, into its fold. While comic-created Kitaro (inspired by a story card play) may not be an original yokai, he is credited with keeping the yokai spirit alive for over 55 years and has spawned numerous cartoons, shows, movies, video games, toys; basically anything you can slap that adorable little face on. Unfortunately, there’s almost no translated work for English readers… until now.

  • Doug Jones & Photographer Joshua Hoffine team for FX-heavy, Lovecraftian “INNSMOUTH” Project

    ,

    Despite having a film in theaters with CRIMSON PEAK and three successful television series air over the summer, I think fright fans can agree that there is simply not enough of Doug Jones in our lives. An extraordinary actor with or without a mountain of make-up, Jones is not only a talented performer but a genuine fan of horror in his own right, especially when it comes to classic terror tales and the Gothic. So therefore, it’s great and, admittedly, not too surprising to see Jones as the sole human element in the latest project from acclaimed horror photographer Joshua Hoffine, entitled INNSMOUTH!

  • “INK & STEEL” Filmmakers Want Your Attention With “#DISTRACTDEAD”

    ,

    It’s always exciting to see fright filmmakers go outside of their comfort zone and go for more versatile output. It’s easy for filmmakers to stick to a niche or the expectations of their fanbase, so for co-directors Patrick Ward-Perkins and Jonathan Ehlers to branch out from their documentary feature INK & STEEL to the horror genre is a welcome change of pace. And now, Ward-Perkins & Ehler’s have hit the ‘net with first look at their biting and creepy fright flick, entitled #DISTRACTDEAD.

  • “MANSON FAMILY VACATION” (Movie Review)

    ,,

    Written and directed by J. Davis and currently available on Netflix, MANSON FAMILY VACATION explores the multifaceted idea of family, as two brothers attempt to reconnect and forgive the past through radical understanding. The film also explores the semiotics of Charles Manson—the idea of an infamous clan of outcasts—and the myth of the changeling child. Merging these concepts seamlessly, MANSON FAMILY VACATION penetrates the heart and tells its audience, in a dark and humorous way, that it understands.
