    “THE RAID 2″: Who is Hammer Girl?

    Like its predecessor, THE RAID 2 is not wanting for chaos. Across its crime saga-fit runtime, there is no shortage of skin to slash, heads to smash, glass and bones to break, or bullets flying. But while almost every sequence is more spectacular than the last, it’s likely you’ll emerge from the film with one villain’s name on the tip of your tongue. Like Mad Dog before her, Hammer Girl is an impossibly violent piece of work immediately burned into your brain. Using the household tool as a natural extension of Tiger Style, and masking something with those bug big sunglasses, the beautiful, ferocious character is unknowable and so very cool.

    “AMERICAN VAMPIRE: SECOND CYCLE” (Comic Review)

    Launching careers, AMERICAN VAMPIRE started as a simple vampire comic in 2010 and has since become one of the most well-received horror series in years. Utilizing clever play on the creatures’ long-held mythos, while telling a compelling story that spanned a solid seventy years of American history and five volumes of graphic novel, AMERICAN VAMPIRE is new again. After a yearlong break, AMERICAN VAMPIRE: SECOND CYCLE sees original creators Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque return to finish what they started, claiming that this new creation is “the beginning of the huge machinations of the whole series, from here forward, toward the finale.”

    From the FANGORIA Vault: “PUMPKINHEAD”

    Is there anything as exciting as stumbling upon an unexpected treasure? Over here at the FANGORIA Vault, we think so, especially considering the numerous cobwebs and skeletal remains we’ve swatted through over the years. Of course, sometimes “treasure” can also be an understatement, like in the case where we discover a gallery of amazing and rare stills from the set of the late, great Stan Winston’s PUMPKINHEAD!

    Q&A: Frank Pavich and the tale of “JODOROWSKY’S DUNE”

    Cinema is full of devastating stories of films unfinished, abandoned or stolen. One of the most mythical of these is Alejandro Jodorowsky’s follow-up to his magical cult classics EL TOPO and THE HOLY MOUNTAIN, a proposed adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 science fiction novel, DUNE. The film was deep in pre-production in the mid-70s when financing fell apart, and boasted a crazy attached cast including Orson Welles, Salvador Dali, Mick Jagger, Gloria Swanson and David Carradine, production design by HR Giger and Jean “Moebius” Giraud, visual FX by Dan O’Bannon, and music by Magma and Pink Floyd. One can only imagine the stunning, mystical epic this would have been.
