FANGORIA #306 doesn’t hit the shelves or arrive in your
mailbox till early August, but we’ve got the first peek at the cover and the full
contents to share with you now! The front art is an old-school painting
celebrating the new rubber-suit-monster opus CREATURE, for which we’ve got an
exclusive interview and photos. We also preview DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK
with writer/producer Guillermo del Toro and director Troy Nixey, FRIGHT NIGHT
with director Craig Gillespie and star Colin Farrell, STRAW DOGS with director
Rod Lurie, the British knockout ATTACK THE BLOCK and the 3D flicks SHARK NIGHT
and FINAL DESTINATION 5, plus an extensive chat with Sissy Spacek on CARRIE and
much more. See the cover and complete contents after the jump!
INTERVIEW: SISSY SPACEK She turned Stephen King’s vengeful
“Carrie” into an indelible screen icon.

destination: a lake swarming with finned killers.
FEATURE: ITALIAN SHARK MOVIES In the wake of “Jaws” came a
whole school of Mediterranean mockbusters.
PREVIEW: “STRAW DOGS” The human animal hasn’t gotten any
less violent, so Rod Lurie revisits the Sam Peckinpah classic.
ON SET: “FINAL DESTINATION 5” Will better characters and the
use of 3D help this entry generate suspension (bridge) of disbelief?
PREVIEW: “FRIGHT NIGHT” There’s a new ghoul next door, and
he’s played by Colin Farrell in Craig Gillespie’s update.
INTERVIEW: WILLIAM RAGSDALE He first went suburban-vampire
hunting 26 years ago with Roddy McDowall by his side.
INTERVIEW: AGUSTÍ VILLARONGA “In a Glass Cage” is still a
horrifying place to be thanks to this Spanish director.

Terrified by the original, he put his personal stamp on the new version.
PREVIEW: “DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK”: TROY NIXEY Little
things meant a lot to the man at the remake’s helm.
INTERVIEW: NIGEL McKEAND The scripter of ’73’s “Don’t Be
Afraid of the Dark” had no idea he was creating a classic.
PREVIEW: “CREATURE” If you’re tired of CG beasties, prepare
to welcome the new rubber suit on the block. Plus: great monster costumes of
PREVIEW: “ATTACK THE BLOCK” Untamed youth meet
extraterrestrial enemies in a wild and wonderful British import.
PREVIEW: “THE DEAD,” PART TWO Charity began with roaming
zombies when this sleeper filmed in Africa.
DIARY OF THE DEB: “THE FLUSH,” PART ONE Her experience with
a budding filmmaker from Tijuana didn’t bowl Debbie over.
PREVIEW: “ROSE” John Skipp has long been a master of
horrific prose, and now he’s turning his talents to the screen.

bring out the weird with pen, ink and paint.
