    Halloween 2016 might be heading towards a distant memory, but it took off like a scream as founder John Capo kicked off his inaugural FEARnyc festival at Manhattan’s historic Cinema Village theater.  One of New York City’s newest and biggest horror film festivals, the event scared the pants off lovers of the macabre and covered a whopping seven days from October 21st thru the 27th. It featured screenings of 65+ new and classic horror films, cast appearances, special events and ended with an awards ceremony and a moving Legacy Honoree tribute to iconic filmmaker, Wes Craven. Craven’s step daughter Nina Tarnawksky accepted the tribute on behalf of Craven’s family and delivered a heartfelt address paying homage to his forward thinking vision, and long harbored esteem for his audiences.

  • “THE COMPLETE VOODOO, VOL. 2” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    There was a lot of things to be terrified of in the 1950’s: Communism, atomic bombs, fat lazy children nursed on the unholy teat that is television. With such rampaging paranoia, it’s no wonder that some of the most iconic horror movies and shows emerged from the unique era, inspired in part by one of the largest horror comic booms in the history of the printed press. Thanks to the hard work of Yoe Comics and IDW Comics, we in the far future of 2016 with our flying cars and space travel, can read what all the hubbub was all about. THE COMPLETE VOODOO VOL. 2 is the second installment of reprinted horror works originally from Farrell Publications simply titled VOODOO, and features a collection of spooky stories to keep you up at night.

  • Q&A: Filmmaker Isaac Ezban talks “THE SIMILARS”

    ,

    In today’s media landscape, far too many projects rely on the importance of nostalgia within their audience. Yet for some projects, nostalgia itself can be the building blocks of something truly fantastic, such in the case of Isaac Ezban’s THE SIMILARS. Pulling from classic sci-fi/horror hybrids of the ‘60s, especially THE TWILIGHT ZONE, Ezban is able to fully realize an original vision that feels respectful to its inspirations while firing on all cylinders in its own right. With the film now on VOD, FANGORIA caught up with Ezban to talk about THE SIMILARS, independent filmmaking, and his next film, PARALLEL…

  • Exclusive Details, Trailer: Vestron Video brings Bob Balaban’s “PARENTS” to Blu-ray!

    ,

    Last year, this writer had the pleasure of speaking to actor/filmmaker Bob Balaban about his storied career, including several unsung contributions to the horror genre (including MY BOYFRIEND’S BACK and the pilot for TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE). But out of his demented directorial efforts, Balaban is perhaps best known for PARENTS, a horror comedy that paints the nuclear family as crazed cannibals while sporting memorably macabre performances from Randy Quaid and Mary Beth Hurt. Now, with the film sadly absent from the world of high-definition, PARENTS is looking to get the Blu-ray treatment from none other than the recently revived Vestron Video label, and FANGORIA has the first details on the release below!

  • Q&A: Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues talk “DON’T BREATHE”

    ,,

    Having only directed a handful of short films at the time, it was surprise to horror fans that rookie director Fede Alvarez was given the shot at directing 2013’s EVIL DEAD reboot. What Alvarez proved with that film, though, was how capable he was as a filmmaker, giving fans a brutal and unflinching film that was not only entertaining as hell, but in this writer’s opinion, worthy of being placed right alongside the original film.

  • Exclusive Clip: Vestron Video’s “C.H.U.D. II: BUD THE CHUD” Blu-ray!

    ,

    While mostly a sequel in name only, C.H.U.D. II: BUD THE CHUD is definitely a cult film in the truest sense of the label. Trading in the monster movie conspiracy thriller of the first film for old fashioned splatstick, C.H.U.D. II may not be the best follow-up in horror history, but it’s certainly a lot of fun in its own right and carries a dedicated audience from its time as a ‘90s late night cable staple. Now, C.H.U.D. II is being unleashed on Vestron Video, and FANGORIA is ringing in the occasion with a clip from it’s brand new Blu-ray, which you can see below!

  • Q&A: Casper Kelly and Dave Willis talk “YOUR PRETTY FACE IS GOING TO HELL”

    ,,

    While there are several high-profile horror comedies currently turning heads on the small screen, few go as deep into the demented and disgusting as YOUR PRETTY FACE IS GOING TO HELL. With Adult Swim’s brand of surreal and crude humor injected into a sitcom about office politics in Hell, PRETTY FACE goes to some hilariously putrid places in its third season, thanks to the likes of series co-creators Chris “Casper” Kelly and Dave Willis. With season three now in progress, so far offering cringe-worthy takes on aliens, pregnancy, and workplace videos, FANGORIA caught up with Kelly and Willis about what macabre madness audiences should expect going forward…
