Fangoria resurrects Dead Format

Why do people look at me like I’m crazy when I say Fangoria is the best genre magazine on the shelf?  I seriously read every horror related magazine that hits the shelves, from the old guy black and whites to the ultra glossy “high-brow” genre rags.  If its got a monster on it or in it I have to give it a shot. Now that gives me the right to say hands down for the last five months Fangoria has been the best magazine out there.  This past week saw the release of issue number 305 and it is no exception. Now you had me at the logo, but with a heavy focus on British Horror, a sweet merchandising of the Planet Of The Apes article, and a giant fold out Elvira poster, any self respecting genre fan would be a fool not to pick this up.

Now I have a little ritual when it comes to magazines.  I flip through every page and see whats on the platter before I dig in.  I like to take notice of little things like whether or not an article is still featured, or even their placement within the magazines.  Just one of my things.  Now while flipping through the new Fango, what do I come across on the very last page… Dead Format!  A brand new article by Kelly Forbes featuring horror films only available on VHS!!! Wizard Video’s Headless Eyes specifically in this issue. As a VHS collector and long time Fangoria supporter I just want to thank you guys for always giving me another reason to support my argument.  Fangoria is number one.   I found the article to be informative yet still accesible enough to entertain those of you who rely strictly on your fancy blew-ray players. Hopefully this mainstream exposure will help some of these lost classics find a place in the modern fans hearts and maybe even convert a few over to the darkside of  VHS collecting.

While we’re at it our good friends over at Fright-Rags just released some sweet Fangoria logo shirts.  Gotta get me that Gorezone one!

Fangoria invites you to a 3-D Priest Party

Early this afternoon I got a phone call by none other than Tony Timpone!  As a long time Fangoria fan you have to understand the weight that name carries, and for him to be calling for me?! Little ol’ Matt D.

The best part is he called me to invite you (The Forbidden Planet Fanbase) to a FREE special event for the upcoming film Priest.  Director Scott Stewart and star Paul Bettany will be there to give you an exclusive look at some mind-bending 3-D material.  Giveaways and free refreshments, what more could you ask for?

Here are the details on how you can get tickets to the event.

“This special Fango night will be a free presentation; to obtain tickets, send an e-mail to fangoscreening@starloggroup.com. You must list “PRIEST” as your subject line and your full name in the e-mail. Offer is good for you and one guest. Names will be checked at the door. Offer is first come, first served, and we will confirm your rsvp.”

On Tuesday, April 19 at 7 p.m., FANGORIA will be hosting a free 3D presentation in New York City on PRIEST, Screen Gems’ upcoming postapocalyptic action/horror film. Star Paul Bettany (LEGION, A BEAUTIFUL MIND, THE DA VINCI CODE) will be attending the special preview, along with director Scott Stewart. The duo will debut exclusive 3D footage from the manga-derived PRIEST and answer questions at the FANGORIA-moderated event, which will be held at the AMC Lincoln Square (1998 Broadway and 68th Street) next week. Free refreshments will be served and expect some cool door prizes and giveaways.

Written by APOLLO 18’s Cory Goodman and based on the graphic novel series of the same name by Min-Woo Hyung, PRIEST is set in an alternate world—one ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampires. The story revolves around a legendary Warrior Priest (Bettany) from the last Vampire War who now lives in obscurity among the other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church. When his niece (Lily Collins of THE BLIND SIDE) is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires, Priest breaks his sacred vows to venture out on an obsessive quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. He is joined on his crusade by his niece’s boyfriend (TWILIGHT’s Cam Gigandet), a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess (NIKITA’s Maggie Q) who possesses otherworldly fighting skills. PRIEST co-stars STAR TREK’s Karl Urban, CHILD’S PLAY’s Brad Dourif and TWIN PEAKS’ Mädchen Amick, along with TRUE BLOOD’s Stephen Moyer and WOLF’s Christopher Plummer. See the article in FANGORIA #303, on sale this month. PRIEST opens nationwide on May 13. You can see the official website here http://priest-movie.net/.

Fangoria #302

Fangoria issue #302 hit the shelves this week, and this reader’s jaw hit the floor.  There has been a lot of bad mouthing on Fangoria in the last couple years, but their most recent output should shut them haters up. They’ve added great new colums like Trash Compactor, which focuses on some serious deep cuts from the genre, and Sound Shock, covering in detail classic horror scores, soundtracks, and composers. Recent articles about personal favorites like Slithis, The Boneyard, The Twilight Zone and KISS makes me remember why Fangoria will always be my favorite magazine peroid. 

Fangoria Issue #302 being a perfect example, packed cover to cover with the gory goodness we’ve come to expect.  I was personally excited about interviews with Rubber’s Quentin Dupieux and the demented minds behind Hobo with a Shotgun.  But with articles on Dario Argento, Sybil Danning, Wolfen, Chainsaw Sally, Gore Shriek, and a cover dedicated to James Wan’s Insidious, I’m sure there is something for fans from all walks of the genre.  If that’s not enough to get you to open your wallet in these frugal times, did I mention it comes with a giant fold out poster for Argento’s Deep Red?

What are you waiting for? Pick up Fangoria #302!
