  • L.A.! See “THE DEMON’S ROOK” Free this Saturday at Jumpcut!

    Do you want to see something bonkers? THE DEMON’S ROOK is. Gory, psychotronic and homemade, THE DEMON’S ROOK is ambitious no-budget horror. Steeped in strange mythology and boasting ultraviolent setpieces, James Sizemore’s SFX-driven fantasy-horror is very much a good time, and FANGORIA is very excited to present a free screening of the film at our regular Los Angeles hang, the Jumpcut Cafe (13203 Ventura Blvd.), this Saturday, September 20th.

    FANGO Flashback: “DEAD SILENCE”

    For contemporary horror fans, the career of James Wan has been particularly interesting. After catapulting onto the radars of genre audiences everywhere with 2004’s SAW, the fillmaker was set back by two successive box office failures in 2007, which floundered his career until 2011 low budget hit INSIDIOUS. With 2013’s massive THE CONJURING, the redemption story goes a little farther with the upcoming Wan-produced prequel, ANNABELLE. After all, Wan looks to propel the very subgenre that nearly ended his relationship with horror seven years prior: doll horror.

    Q&A: “SERENITY ROSE” Creator, Aaron Alexovich

    SERENITY ROSE is the kind of comic weird kids grow up on. Full of one-of-a-kind characters, goofy situations, and heaping helpings of magic and mayhem, SERENITY ROSE has helped open up the comic world for readers who’d usually shy away from delving into the more constricted universes of bigger companies. With its ten year anniversary at hand, creator Aaron Alexovich hopped on Kickstarter to fund a collected, hardcover edition of the past decade and met with overwhelming success. Following the launch of SERENITY ROSE: 10 AWKWARD YEARS, Alexovich spoke with FANGORIA, attempting to explain his work and what has kept moving him forward through all of the ups and downs.

    Fantastic Fest Shorts Preview: Fredrik S. Hana’s Seaside Scare, “AUTUMN HARVEST”

    The winner of Fantastic Fest’s 2013 Short Fuse Program, Norwegian filmmaker Fredrik S. Hana returns to Austin this year with for the World Premiere of his atmospheric seaside tale AUTUMN HARVEST. His latest is a change of setting—the winning ANGST, PISS AND DRID was a squalid, interior work of human horror, while AUTUMN HARVEST is more ethereal and nature-based—but maybe not pace. Hana is clearly focused on sensory cinema, and like several of the 2014 short films (of which FANGORIA is a proud sponsor), unfolds largely dialogue-free.

    “THE GUEST” (TIFF Movie Review)

    Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett’s THE GUEST qualifies as horror for lack of any other easy genre classification (well, aside from a delightfully cheeky Halloween themed climax). The duo have delivered a project that mixes their trademark dark humor and hyper cineliteracy with elements of 80s horror, thrillers, and action flicks, topped off with a light dusting of John Carpenter. It’s a movie that Cannon Films would have been proud to slap their logo across during the neon decade and yet it also feels contemporary. The film strives for nothing more than pure, unadulterated, unapologetic entertainment and so delivers on that promise, you can’t help but sit back and smile.
