Since 1979, FANGORIA has lived up to its moniker as “First In Fright,” growing across the decades to become one of the most influential horror brands in the genre. At one point the only place on newsstands where fans could read about the world of contemporary horror, today FANGORIA has adapted to a world it helped create – into a multimedia platform company, spanning across print, digital, studio (film and television), podcasts, merchandise and more. Under publishers Tara Ansley and Abhi Goel, the brand is expanding from the page into the digital space as an iconic genre media destination, with the website and magazine headed by Editor-in-Chief Phil Nobile Jr., Digital Editor Angel Melanson, and Creative Director Jason Kauzlarich.
FANGORIA’s current mission is to honor its legacy through expansion into original film and television under the brand’s newly launched production arm, FANGORIA Studios, led by SVP of Film and Television Armen Aghaeian. Now in its fourth decade, Fango celebrates a massive and diverse community of creators and fans, and is at the forefront of the current moment of celebrating genre as a legitimate entertainment space – one where all are welcome. When it comes to horror, everyone screams in the same language.
