  • The Dreadful Ten: Top 10 Horror Films Worth Hunting Down

    ,,

    With so many streaming services and digital video on-demand services out there nowadays, it’s no surprise that genre fans have more options to watch whatever they want than ever before. While this may be a normalcy for those growing up in the digital age, many of us who grew up with video stores or, hell, even the disc-delivery days of Netflix remember the difficulty- and in many cases, the thrill- of hunting down obscure genre films. Luckily, as much as there is that’s now widely available, there are still some horror gems that escape being found too easily, and so FANGORIA has dedicated this week’s Dreadful Ten to a collection of horror films worth the time and effort to track down.

  • NYC Horror Film Festival Review: “III”

    ,,

    Right from the get-go, Pavel Khvaleev’s III is a film uninterested in presenting a straightforward narrative, instead opting for a gothic, surreal puzzle that blends fantasy and reality with a mind towards the bigger picture. In fact, as a whole, III is the kind of film that makes bold choices in almost every regard: plot points, cinematography, FX and subject matter all present something a bit more in the vein of risky, stark art house fare as opposed to what genre fans may expect. And while there is something refreshing about that attitude, especially considering how gorgeous the film’s fantastical elements can be thanks to these gambles, there is also an overall lack of life in the quixotic, polarizing narrative of III.

  • Event Report: King Diamond, Live in New York City!

    ,

    It was a dark, wet night on Thursday, November 19th, when this writer ventured out to see the one and only King Diamond on his first of three nights playing at the Playstation Theater in New York City. To be honest, the notice was a bit of a surprise: Diamond’s original Friday/Saturday gig sold out very quickly, and when a third show was promptly added, this writer knew he wasn’t going to miss the opportunity to see the Danish rock icon live in concert. Yet the road to seeing King Diamond was not as easy as one might imagine: following high temperatures throughout November, heavy rainfall hit on the 19th, backing up traffic tremendously and making the journey from the PATH exit on 34th Street to the Playstation Theater on 44th street one that would leave this writer soaking wet.

    ,

    While the festival hasn’t always been friendly to the horror genre, especially through its formative years, Sundance has grown more accepting of scare fare in recent times, branding a horror-centric Midnight line-up that has now become standard with all “legitimate” film festivals such. Luckily, Sundance has also carried it’s notoriously high standards among its Midnight choices as well, often bringing about the most lauded- or at least polarizing- films in the horror world, including the V/H/S series and the upcoming A24 release, THE WITCH. Now, Sundance 2016 has laid its claim to the first 9 films of their midnight line-up, which features some heavy-hitters indeed and all of which are world premieres.

  • NYC! First True 4K Screening of “BLUE SUNSHINE” comes to Alamo Yonkers on 12/11, with director Jeff Lieberman Q&A!

    ,,

    If you’re unfamiliar with Jeff Lieberman’s BLUE SUNSHINE, it’s guaranteed because you simply haven’t seen the film. An utterly crazy cult classic about random killing sprees linked by a maddening brand of LSD, BLUE SUNSHINE is a film whose loyal audience has grown over the years thanks to the film’s resurgence on DVD and streaming video. However, one problem with the film is that the previous prints struck from the film have unilaterally been sub-par, as the original negative had seemingly gone missing… that was until now.
