  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: “THE RANTS MACABRE” Tunes In To Radio Horror!

    ,,,

    Before the days of HANNIBAL and THE WALKING DEAD, horror hounds used to find their frights on the airwaves via radio plays, serialized thrillers and more. While horror on the radio still exists to this day- TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE, FANGO’s own THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW, etc.-, it certainly isn’t how it used to be since the days where Orson Welles’ WAR OF THE WORLDS broadcast unleashed mass hysteria upon the U.S. Yet in horror fiction, the dream of radio horror still exists, and in the latest episode of THE RANTS MACABRE, things get meta as our horror hosts tune into some broadcasted brutality!

  • NY/NJ! Win A Mondo LP at Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers “PET SEMATARY” Screening Next Week!

    ,

    When it comes to Stephen King adaptations, very few resonate with as much creepy purpose as PET SEMATARY, Mary Lambert’s terrifying take on grief, loss, resurrection and consequence. But as much as the film can inspire goosebumps with the likes of Undead Gage or Zelda, the film is equally notable for its sinister soundtrack. Of course, The Ramones’ title track from the film broke big in a way that few horror anthems ever have, but Elliot Goldenthal’s score adds that extra taste of Southern Gothic terror to the proceedings as well. Luckily for NY/NJ horrorheads, Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers is not only offering the chance to catch PET SEMATARY on the big screen next week, but one luckily attendee will be going home with Mondo’s PET SEMATARY vinyl LP!

  • Nicolas Winding Refn Announces ‘Remake Trilogy’ with Vincent Price, Giallo Classics!

    ,

    For this writer, one of the most highly anticipated horror offerings of 2016 is Nicolas Winding Refn’s THE NEON DEMON, which has already polarized audiences at the typically genre-unfriendly Cannes Film Festival. Hitting theaters next month, it will be Refn’s first tried-and-true entry into the horror genre, even if his filmography has long touched upon the themes and atmosphere of horror, but with the news breaking last week, it’s sure to not be his last. That’s because- in addition to his previously announced MANIAC COP remake- Refn has added two more horror classics to his slate of upcoming remakes on which the demented Danish filmmaker will serve as executive producer, according to Deadline.

  • “BATES MOTEL: Season 4, Episode 10” (TV Review)

    ,,

    Despite Norma looking very much deceased in last week’s episode, it was still debateable whether or not she was truly dead, possibly due to the fact that it is almost unheard of for one of the two leads to be killed off at this point in the game. With Norman’s mind increasingly diluted by psychosis, the show is always in the air as to what is real and what is not, and of course, there is also the case for characters having been brought back from the “dead” before, such as with Bradley Martin. Alas, that was not the case for poor Norma Bates.

  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: “THE HORROR SHOW” Continues Their Monstervision Tribute!

    ,,,

    Last week, THE HORROR SHOW took us back to the days where “horror television” meant Joe Bob Briggs ripping the heart out of Saturday Night every week on MONSTERVISION. But rather than rack up the Drive-In Totals for one week and call it quits, THE HORROR SHOW will devote a whole series to the petrifying cable presentation. And for this week, THE HORROR SHOW revives MONSTERVISION’s terrific takedown of ICE CREAM MAN!

  • FANGO Flashback: “PRISON”

    ,,

    For longtime readers of FANGORIA.com, this writer’s affection for the work of Renny Harlin has been well-documented. With genuinely awesome cinematic offerings such as MINDHUNTERS, DEEP BLUE SEA, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET PART IV, THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT, DIE HARD 2 and CLIFFHANGER under his belt, few directors can capture the spirit of popcorn entertainment better than Harlin. Even his cinematic missteps- FORD FAIRLANE, DEVIL’S PASS and EXORCIST: THE BEGINNING- are perhaps hobbled by their own ambition, and the fact that they still are fairly entertaining in their own right is a testament to Harlin’s work as a filmmaker. Yet unfortunately, too few horror hounds have seen one of Harlin’s legitimately best terror titles: the 1988 haunting thriller PRISON.

  • Transgressive Terror Attraction “DYSTOPIA” Frightens Up N.J., U.K. Experiences!

    ,

    Considering their growing popularity among more adventurous and daring horror audiences, it’s no wonder why the cult-like atmosphere of extreme, immersive haunts is becoming an art form in and of itself. Of course, one of the most controversial figures in that arena would be Russ McKamey, whose McKamey Manor and other full-contact haunt experiences have lead to protests, regional bans and psychological scars for the unprepared. Following his exile from his successful, Long Island-based haunt, McKamey has teamed with NY horror collective Fringe Horror Theatre to create his latest immersive experience, DYSTOPIA, which has finally found a pair of venues daring enough to bring it to life.

  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: “THE GIRLS IN THE BACK ROW” Dig Up Indie Vampire Flicks!

    ,,,

    Out of all the subgenres in horror history, few have as much of a storied history with women as vampire horror. From its Gothic beginnings to contemporary reinventions, vampire horror has tackled subjects of lust, hunger, power, and mortality in perspectives that challenged traditional gender roles throughout the years. With that in mind, THE GIRLS IN THE BACK ROW tackle a pair of independent vampire horror films that continue that unique tradition: A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT and ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE!
