    “BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA” (Comic Review)

    Undervalued upon release in 1986, BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA has gathered a rock solid cult following in the intervening years. One of John Carpenter’s less serious-minded films, the over-the-top kung-fu and lightning fantasy action-comedy is continuously adored by old fans and new generations. It’s thanks to these admirers that BOOM! Studios recently announced a comic addition to the BIG TROUBLE story. Featuring everyone’s favorite highway man, Jack Burton, on a brand new adventure of bizarre proportions, it’s sure to feed that insatiable need for quick one-liners and moccasin-clad high kicks.

    Gay of the Dead: Dante Tomaselli, Part One

    The terms “nonlinear” and “dream logic” are used in almost every interview and article about Dante Tomaselli’s work (and Gay of the Dead will be no exception).

    “THE DOLL” (CD Review)

    The latest album by horror auteur Dante Tomaselli, THE DOLL is the soundtrack to his in-development film of the same name (see details here), and a creepy, nightmarish auditory journey that will immediately unsettle anyone who listens to it. The disc is catchy at times and perfectly frightful at others—a hallucinogenic trip to a dark and uncomfortable place.

    From the FANGORIA Vault: “DEMONS” & “DEMONS 2″

    At this point, we over here at the FANGORIA vault have given up on trying to fight this bizarre weather. First, we had to thaw out the coffins after the polar vortex, not knowing we could use the ice when summer came earlier than expected.
