swerves, mannequin terror and undead affection.
Love leads to some pretty disturbing behavior in CORPSING, a

Since the launch of his viral marketing campaign for THE
LAST EXORCISM, which favored post-viewing tweets from horror fans over
professional critical consensus, Eli Roth’s philosophy as a producer has championed
the democratization of film spectatorship. That attention to a multiplicity of
voices has informed the bulk of his moviemaking process as well, including his
stint co-writing and producing RZA’s directorial debut THE MAN WITH THE IRON
FISTS (out on theatrical-cut and unrated DVDs and Blu-ray/DVD combo from
Universal Studios Home Entertainment today). Fango spoke with Roth about the
ins and outs of that process during his work in China for RZA’s dream project,
and the themes and cultural influences that pervade his filmography.
ALIENS: COLONIAL MARINES was in development in February
2008, announced by 20th CENTURY FOX to be considered a true sequel to the 1986
classic ALIENS film, despite its new medium. Fast forward four years and
numerous delays later, and the release of the highly anticipated title is finally
here offering up a drop in-and-out cooperative multiplayer campaign, fun
multiplayer modes featuring the continuing battles of space Marines against the
Xenomorphs. Gearbox Software, having promised to stay as true to the game's
predecessors as possible, as they're huge fans of the ALIENS franchise as well,
have delivered something great that will have you hooked for hours on end
before saying, "Game over man! Game Over!"

this exclusive essay for us. Have a read…]
As 2012 drew to a close and many looked forward with lists
of the “most anticipated” variety, I found myself thinking what I was most interested to see in 2013 were the many pictures that would come
with the continued growth of Artsploitation Films. New, but arriving with
impression and style, the boutique distribution company has already run a gamut
of Japanese gangs (HARD ROMANTICKER), wild Serbian youth (CLIP) and intensely
engrossing, psychosexual sci-fi (VANISHING WAVES). They’ve just begun their dip
into full-on horror though (recently nabbing the Chilean HIDDEN IN THE WOODS), and have given Fango the first word of three new international
titles coming our way.
George A. Romero’s NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD has been remade,
officially or unofficially, countless times, almost always with
disappointing—if not disastrous—results. But Douglas Schulze’s MIMESIS (on DVD
and Blu-ray tomorrow from Anchor Bay) adapts that classic in original and
intriguing ways. FANGORIA spoke to the Michigan-based director about his horror
The new movie posits that Mary Shelley’s classic novel was
actually based on a real scientific experiment gone wrong, and will be
available for big-screen consumption early next month. Read on for venue
