  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: Comedian Jake Johannsen joins “MONSTER PARTY” to talk Evil Kid Horror!

    ,,,

    If there’s anything that the world can agree is a universally terrifying entity, it would be children. Time and time again, Hollywood (as well as independent films) are more than willing to remind fright fans of just how unsettling creepy kids can be. And with that in mind, the fearsome four sit at the kid’s table with comic royalty Jake Johannsen to discuss evil child horror on this week’s hilarious edition of MONSTER PARTY!

    ,

  • FANGO Flashback: “THE MIST”

    ,,

    In almost a tragic recurring theme in the horror genre, most of the films fright fans consider to be classics of the genre certainly were not received that way initially. Whether it be the many critically-lambasted post-HALLOWEEN efforts of John Carpenter, the direct-to-video dumps of FEAST and TRICK ‘R TREAT or the commercial failures such as THE MONSTER SQUAD and NIGHTBREED, most beloved terror titles have earned their esteemed reputations years, perhaps even decades after the fact. Yet few films have earned their prestigious post-release reputation more than Frank Darabont’s terrifying and tragic adaptation of Stephen King’s THE MIST, which truly has aged like a fine wine in the near-decade since its release.

  • “SOME KIND OF HATE” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    Following its world premiere at the 2015 Stanley Film Festival, SOME KIND OF HATE was this writer’s true, definitive frontrunner for the best horror film of the year. A clever, emotional twist on the long-dormant slasher subgenre, SOME KIND OF HATE brought a brutal, visceral vision to the big screen unlike anything this writer had before while establishing Adam Egypt Mortimer as a genre director to watch. And while Image/RLJ Entertainment gave the film a push during its VOD release in September, there are still many fright fans who have yet to give the film a shot. Now, with the film debuting on Blu-ray (exclusive to Best Buy until late next month), horror hounds have the perfect opportunity to catch up with the macabre movie, while fans of the film have a chance to check out the bigger picture of SOME KIND OF HATE.

  • “ALIEN: COVENANT” Gets Official Release Date, Story & Cast Details

    ,

    If you disregard the ALIEN VS. PREDATOR films as well as Ridley Scott’s PROMETHEUS, the last tried-and-true ALIEN effort was nearly 20 years ago with 1997’s ALIEN: RESURRECTION. However, with the ‘indefinite hold’ currently on Neill Blomkamp’s ALIEN effort (which would have seen both Hicks and Ripley back into the franchise), the best chance of seeing the Xenomorph back in proper form was Ridley Scott’s PROMETHEUS follow-up, which promised to bridge that prequel to Scott’s ’79 original. Yet today, in a surprise announcement, 20th Century Fox has revealed the official title for Scott’s second ALIEN prequel, entitled ALIEN: COVENANT, as well as the synopsis, returning PROMETHEUS cast and exactly when we’ll see the return of the ALIEN franchise.

  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: More “ALIEN” Franchise Dissection with “WOMEN IN CASKETS” on “THE RANTS MACABRE”!

    ,,,

    Last week, THE RANTS MACABRE brought aboard Dawn & Jen of the Women in Caskets Podcast for the first part of their ALIEN-centric podcasts, discussing Ridley Scott’s ALIEN, James Cameron’s ALIENS as well as ALIEN: ISOLATION and Ellen Ripley in general. The in-depth discussion touched upon everything from Ripley’s tragic story arc to Scott’s naturalistic (if controversial) approach to direction to the representation of the corporate greed in ALIENS, offering a fantastic introduction to a fun and thoughtful podcast crossover event. Now, that crossover continues with part two of THE RANTS MACABRE’s ALIEN franchise dissection, covering David Fincher’s ALIEN3 and Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s ALIEN: RESURRECTION.

  • “DEAD BODY” (NYC Horror Film Fest Review)

    ,,

    While some might argue that the “whodunit?”-style of storytelling may be outdated, this writer would argue that not only is the structure relevant but also woefully underutilized. A precursor to the slasher film, “whodunit?” mysteries can be just as effective when applied to the horror genre as it is when applied to noirs and thrillers, especially when a film provides reasonable doubt for as many characters as possible. Luckily, DEAD BODY does just that, providing the genre’s strongest and most brutal “whodunit?” in recent memory, rife with excellent performances and jaw-dropping FX to sell the scares full-stop.

  • Event Report: “MISERY” with Bruce Willis & Laurie Metcalf on Broadway

    ,,

    This writer must admit that it’s a bit surprising that not more horror takes to the stage in a serious context. Of course, there are the many macabre musicals that infuse the flamboyant Broadway attitude and the splattery, insane properties of horror films past, including musical adaptations of EVIL DEAD, RE-ANIMATOR and SILENCE OF THE LAMBS. But the stage is rarely approached for traditionally frightening fare these days, even with the potential of genuinely frightening a room full of people being a logical step from the increasingly interactive haunt experience. But at least one live show is making the bold step of attempting to do so, and with a property that is beloved by many horror hounds: Stephen King’s MISERY, starring Bruce Willis, Laurie Metcalf and Leon Addison Brown.
