  • For Your Consideration: The 2016 Chainsaw Award Nominees for Best Foreign Language Film!

    ,,

    With voting season now open on the FANGORIA Chainsaw Awards, fans are putting their minds at work to select their favorites out of every potential nominee. When it came to the Best Foreign Language Film category, there was some argument as to what technically counted for the category, eventually disqualifying technically-released-in-2015 film ANGST (due to it’s 1983 production) and WHITE DOG. Meanwhile, The Mo Brothers’ KILLERS and the anthology film MEXICO BARBARO were also in contention, but eventually were bumped out by its creepier competition. And after some careful consideration, FANGO found five fright flicks worthy of taking home the Gold Chainsaw.

  • “AMERICAN PSYCHO” Team Reunite for Manson Murders Film

    ,

    One of the definitive horror comedies of the 21st Century, Mary Harron’s AMERICAN PSYCHO is a mean, brilliant film whose cult has grown steadily (and persistently) since hitting cinemas 16 years ago. Now, with Harron wrapping up her work on the all-female filmmaker horror anthology XX (alongside Jennifer Lynch, Karyn Kusama and Jovanka Vuckovic) and the AMERICAN PSYCHO musical splattering onto Broadway soon, good news hit this morning regarding the film’s writer-director duo as Harron and her PSYCHO scribe Guinevere Turner will be reuniting for a film based on the Manson Family murders.

  • “STARRY EYES” Filmmakers Attached to “MAMA” Sequel

    ,

    Back in 2014, a little film called STARRY EYES blindsided the horror community with a shocking, Faustian tale for a new generation, landing on many end-of-year lists (including my own) and establishing filmmakers Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch as artists to watch. And while the duo have kept busy on other projects- primarily, the upcoming anthology HOLIDAYS as well as Summit Entertainment’s EXORCISM DIAIRES from OCULUS scribes Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard- the two directors have landed their highest profile gig to date, as The Hollywood Reporter reports that Widmyer and Kolsch will be rewriting and directing the sequel to MAMA for Universal Studios.

  • “SONNY BOY” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    While there are plenty of films who turn to their lesser aspects in an attempt to wrangle the title of “cult film,” there are select others who earn it simply through existence. Robert Martin Carroll’s SONNY BOY is firmly, undeniably in the latter category as an absolute masterpiece of weird, unhinged filmmaking at its most soulful. An aesthetic mix between David Lynch, John Waters and Terrence Malick, SONNY BOY is an essential film for those who love the bizarre, surreal and trashy cinema, and Scream Factory has done the world a kindness by bringing it to a new generation on Blu-ray.

  • Stanley Film Festival Announces Restructuring Plans; Will Relaunch in 2017

    ,

    Over the past several months, this writer had heard chatter from some Denver-based horror hounds regarding the state of- in this writer’s opinion- the best horror-specific film festival, Stanley Film Festival; unfortunately, the chatter was not what this writer had wanted to hear. In the ensuing months, there had been ups and downs, with the peak being that the Stanley Hotel was to become a horror museum and year-round genre hotspot and the valley being that there was a good chance of the festival not running as planned in 2016. This morning, however, the future of the Stanley Film Festival was confirmed, with good news and bad news in tow.
