John Carpenter: FANGORIA legend!

On May 8, 2013, in Uncategorized, by admin

Fangoria’s limited collector’s line of special issues returns with a tribute to the inimitable John Carpenter. Inside, I put up my dukes and defend two of Carpenter’s most dismissed films, VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED and THE WARD. I’ll wait for the snickers to die down before I state that the defense comes from my sincere belief that Carpenter has never made a worthless movie. What other of the Masters of Horror can make that claim? All this and more when you pick up a copy for yourself here:!/~/product/category=5049390&id=23500370

A salute to MAMA

On January 20, 2013, in Uncategorized, by admin

It’s funny. When I was on the set of MAMA, another journalist asked Guillermo Del Toro if horror were truly and finally dead. It was soon after the FRIGHT NIGHT remake and a slew of other theatrical fright flicks had bombed severely, but Del Toro just laughed that off. He said he could wallpaper his office with trade articles that proclaimed either ‘Horror is dead!’ or, conversely, ‘Horror’s the thing!’. He said focus less on the genre and more on the quality of the art. He was right, of course, and MAMA has gone on to bulldoze this weekend’s box office. Congratulations to Senor Del Toro, Jessica Chastain, and especially to director Andy Muschietti and producer Barbara Muschietti. Can’t wait to see what’s next, guys!

Oh, and read my interview with Chastain on here:
