  • “THE CURSE / CURSE II: THE BITE” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    The ‘80s was a weird, wild time in the world of horror filmmaking. Imaginative, FX-heavy films were in vogue, most of which were gleefully R-rated and contingent on shock value to grab the insatiable horror audience.

And there’s no better example of both categories of ‘80s horror than in THE CURSE and THE CURSE II, a pair of genre oddities that are making their high-definition debut from Scream Factory this week.

  • Eerie Episodes: “THE NIGHT STALKER: The Werewolf”

    ,,

    While the age of streaming certainly has it’s pro’s and con’s, one of its greatest benefits is the ability to access archives of old horror television and introduce it to a new generation. In this respect, as someone who grew up watching THE X-FILES and FREAKYLINKS, KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER is both a great classic horror series but a fascinating time capsule as well. Humorous, endearing and fantastically written, THE NIGHT STALKER was the first horror series of its kind, and often treated the lore and mythology of classic horror villains with respect in a way most TV series at the time would respond with parody.

  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: “SPLAT CHAT” goes “SOUTHBOUND” with Director Patrick Horvath

    ,,

    With a few years spent in Los Angeles, it’s easy to become disenchanted by cinema as a form of art. Observing how success is measured by your peers, filmmakers or otherwise, one becomes more eager to spearhead sales, and compromise creativity for marketability. Certain goods can come out of this realization of commercialism. After all, the endgame is to create a visual work for the enjoyment of an audience, and solubility is how one engages said audience — but let’s not confuse compromise with abandoning one’s individuality.
