  • “MOST LIKELY TO DIE” (New York City Horror Film Fest Review)

    ,,

    MOST LIKELY TO DIE is a strange beast, mostly because its most alluring charm is also its greatest detraction. The fact is that MOST LIKELY TO DIE, from concept to execution, is standard slasher film fare; there’s rarely a moment in MOST LIKELY TO DIE that one won’t recognize as a horror movie trope or as problematically predictable. However, in the age where most films are either minimalistic, low-budget haunting movies or direct-to-video torture porn, there’s something refreshing about a pick-’em-off slasher film, complete with masked killer and ridiculous gimmick. Yet even with all the tools and potential at their behest, the fact that MOST LIKELY TO DIE never quite escalates beyond its conventional story is frustrating, ultimately limiting the film to an enjoyable yet forgettable contemporary chiller.

    ,,,

    With two months of terrifying tales under their belt, THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW is only getting started with their nightmarish audio short story series. And while Clay McLeod Chapman & Hanna Cheek have already brought tales of haunted records, cannibalistic romance, Lovecraftian luridness and macabre motherhood to daring listeners, the FANGORIA Podcast Network’s second original series offers another spine-tingling story this week.

  • FANGO Flashback: “BODY BAGS”

    ,,

    For any horror fan, the ‘90s can be a point of contention in the genre’s history. While the decade has produced some truly excellent fright fare, the decade didn’t quite find a popular groove in the genre until the post-SCREAM slasher boom, with many of the successive entries falling upon retrospective scrutiny. Yet potentially most damning about the ‘90s to fright fans was that many of the ‘80s horror masters found themselves marginalized and alienated by the studio system. And it was with that disdain that John Carpenter and Tobe Hooper fled to Showtime to set up shop with for televised terror, only to wind up with one of their most underrated titles to date: BODY BAGS.

  • Q&A: Juliet Landau and Deverill Weekes on Their Vampire Documentary “A PLACE AMONG THE UNDEAD”

    ,,,

    Juliet Landau is probably best known for playing the unhinged vampire Drusilla over multiple seasons of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and ANGEL. Deverill Weekes is an acclaimed cinematographer/photographer with a passion for genre films and TV, as well as prosthetic makeup and its creators. Given their backgrounds, it makes sense that the married Landau and Weekes have embarked on making the feature-length documentary A PLACE AMONG THE UNDEAD, which explores both creators and fans of vampires in literature, cinema, television and other media.

  • “SATANIC PANIC” (Book Review)

    ,,

    The ’80s: The doddering, bobble-headed Reagans, the Iran-Contra affair and the “Just Say No” slogan. New Wave. VHS and Betamax. Hair metal. Amazing genre films with killer practical FX. Any of these things may spring to mind when you think of that decadent decade, but some of you may recall the nefarious psychological plague that flung itself worldwide in search of cults, black magic, sacrifices and other dark rituals, to say nothing of heavy-metal singers testifying before Congress, murder and suicide by way of music and a decidedly devilish influence on horror films—as well as on GERALDO.
