Bagged and Boarded Comic Reviews: B.P.R.D., Moody Frankenstein, and more!

18 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT

New comic book Wednesday has come and gone. The dust at your local comic shop has settled. An eerie silence descends as you finish reading your last superhero book of the week. Now it's time for something a little more sinister. Welcome to Bagged and Boarded: comic reviews of the sick, spooky, twisted and terrifying!

 

B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth No. 118

 

Hellboy's old pals in the B.P.R.D. are in a heap of trouble (and he's no help). The world has, effectively, ended. Giant monsters pour from the center of the world. The Black Flame is a near-deific powerhouse of fire and muscle watching over ruined Manhattan. The key members of the group are scattered across the nation. And everyone's about to be eaten by some sort of monster. A blow-for-blow battle between Liz Sherman and the Flame ensues, and chaos is the law.

More Genre Films Safe For Youngsters

18 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT

For many horror fans with kids, deciding which scary films are appropriate for children can be a challenge. It’s natural to want to pass on a love of the macabre to our offspring and bond over a shared interest in horror, but we also want to protect our children from nightmares or from being scarred by exposure to gratuitous onscreen violence. There are some more obvious kid-friendly choices like The Watcher in the Woods or Something Wicked this way Comes but it can be tricky to determine what is and isn't age-appropriate when it comes to films that were not necessarily made with children in mind. To remedy this, we've begun a recurring segment that spotlights classic titles we deem suitable for most young viewers... at least those old enough to understand the difference between fantasy and reality. Do keep in mind that these are our opinions, and only »

Ever since it's release via IFC Midnight on March 18, 2014, filmmaker Eric England's indie 'body horror' flick Contracted has been burning up DVD and VOD, and we've got first word on the successful feature's inevitable sequel.

"IFC has asked us for a sequel," filmmaker England, whose previously wrote and directed the genre feature Madison County, told us this morning of a potential follow-up to Contracted.

"I told the producers I wasn't interested, because I never envisioned a sequel in the first place, but if I came up with an idea that I felt lived up to or surpassed the first »

17 April 2014 11:15 AM, PDT

Telltale Games has been really knocking it out of the park the last few years, thanks to games based on such properties as Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, Vertigo Comic Fables and The Walking Dead. The later of which has garnered glowing praise from virtually all of have played it.  Many have gone so far as to say that it is the best version of Robert Kirkmans story in any medium (books, comics, tv).  

With all the acclaim and success, it was only a matter of time before someone decided to have a little fun with the conceit and gameplay in their post-outbreak world.  The guys at Dorkly have created a mashup of The Walking Dead game and everyone's favorite plumbers, theMario Bros. in this animated short 'The Walking Koopas'.

Exclusive: Director Hank Braxtan Talks the Creature Feature 'Unnatural', First Photos!

17 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT

With narrative shades reminiscent of 1979’s Prophecy, an ‘old-school’ practical effects approach, a grueling location shoot in Alaskan winter climes and a cast that includes ‘Twin Peaks’’ 1990’s bombshell Sherilyn Fenn, our interest was piqued from the onset. Now at long last, we’re finally able to bring you word on director Hank Braxtan’s wrapped feature Unnatural.

Helmed by Braxtan (who’s upcoming psychological horror feature Chemical Peel is due out via Lionsgate this coming October), Unnatural was produced by Ron Carlson with cinematography by Marc Carter and editing by filmmaker Mike Mendez (Big-Ass Spider), and was shot this past January and February on location in Fairbanks, Alaska. In addition to Fenn, the cast includes James Remar (‘Dexter’), Ray Wise (Jeepers Creepers 2, ‘Twin Peaks’), Graham Greene (The Green Mile), Q’orianka Kilcher (‘Sons of Anarchy’) and Ivana Korab.

‘With many species on the verge of extinction,’ reads the official synopsis of Unnatural, »

Not Safe For Work: 13 Gruesome Decapitations

17 April 2014 8:30 AM, PDT

Typically I’d line an article of this nature up with a nifty little introduction. This time around, I’m just going to hit you with something of a disclaimer: Compiling this list was extremely challenging. There are countless scenes depicting heads being severed from bodies, in countless different pictures. And quite a few of them could easily be considered strong enough to make this list. Ultimately it comes down to personal preference. You’re likely to agree with some of these choices (there’re a few safe calls, I admit), and you’re probably just as likely to disagree with a few. If you’re feeling as though I missed a masterpiece, drop a line. Who doesn’t love watching cranial destruction?

Q&A: Kyron Schon Recalls “Night Of The Living Dead”

16 April 2014 3:30 PM, PDT

Kyra Schon will be forever remembered as the doomed Karen Cooper in George A. Romero’s Night Of The Living Dead, but the enthusiastic Schon has layers of personality and charm that far supersede her famous character’s ghoulish aura. On the eve of an appearance at Chicago’s Sci-Fi Spectacular 2014 this weekend, the kind Schon took a few moments to provide Fangoria with her thoughts on what would have happened if everyone’s favorite zombiefied youngster had actually survived that initial onslaught in 1968.

16 April 2014 2:32 PM, PDT

After spending the last several years either in front of the camera or producing, Eli Roth has finally returned to directing feature films with The Green Inferno.  Though it played last year at several festivals, the general public will have to wait until September before they can see his new cannibal film.  To tied you over until then, have a look at the trailer that was just released. 

 

 

 

Our own Scott Weinberg wrote that "The Green Inferno works as both a gut-punch horror film and a distressingly downbeat adventure story." Read his full review here

Excl: Director Tammi Sutton Talks 'Ripped-Off'

16 April 2014 2:30 PM, PDT

With Isle of Dogs’ director Tammi Sutton’s latest feature Ripped-Off gearing up for principal photography in Los Angeles, CA this spring, we caught up with the filmmaker to discuss what happens when car thieves steal the wrong vehicle (this being a Sutton film, all sorts of stylized hell will break loose, more than likely). Read on.

Currently casting, Ripped-Off was written by Jeff Sisson, and will be produced by Caprice Conley, with cinematography by Jonas Navickas. The film’s tagline is as follows; “They stole the wrong car... Now heads are gonna’ roll."

“The inception of Ripped-Off honestly started when I was winding down filming my last two features in Europe and England,” stated Sutton (her last feature currently in release, the gritty Andrew Howard and Barbara Nedeljakova-starring crime thriller Isle of Dogs, bowed to DVD via Green Apples on January 28, 2014.)

Stuart Gordon’s Taste Is Poignant And Gross

16 April 2014 12:30 PM, PDT

If you're a horror fan, living in Los Angeles certainly presents some perks. Since moving here, I've seen a dramatic interpretation of The Exorcist, musicals based on Silence of the Lambs and Re-Animator, and even a one-man show featuring the living embodiment of Edgar Allan Poe. Those last two examples were directed by Stuart Gordon and were very much in his "wheelhouse," so to speak - Re-Animator was of course his film to begin with, and he's adapted Poe for the Masters of Horror TV show (plus Poe was played by Jeffrey Combs, a staple in Gordon's films). And now he's back on the Los Angeles stage scene with Taste, which is based on one of the more insane real life crime stories in recent memory, turning it into a very funny but also somewhat touching and sad story of two lonely men who have gone to extremes just to »
