The horror genre has lost another director at way too young an age. The name James Isaac may not jump immediately out at you, but the man has delivered some of the most fun and obscure flicks of our generation.
If you haven't done so already, you need to make your voice heard as there are eight indie filmmakers out there who are depending on you to allow them to give you the goods! It only takes a second, people. We need to spread the red as much as possible.
With voting officially starting today, the cover art for all eight films entered into the Fangoria FrightFest film competition has landed with a splat in our mailboxes, and we've gotta say some of them are real winners. Ready for a little art-based terror?
I'm really pulling for Fangoria Magazine these days. Chalk it up to childhood nostalgia if you want, but some of my earliest genre memories were peeling through the pages of Fango and being absolutely mesmerized by what I saw.
While there’s been no shortage of horror festivals in recent years, it’s cool to see another one taking shape, this one in Seattle, WA. If you’re in the area, or you’re up for a road trip, this one looks like it’s going to be worth checking out!
A new trailer for Jim Isaac's latest film Pig Hunt just came our way, and it looks as if it kicks all sorts of ass. Yes, we have a fairly negative Pig Hunt review here on the site, but from what I'm hearing lately from others, it could be way off!
Reviewed by Johnny Butane Starring Travis Aaron Wade, Tina Huang, Howard Johnson, Jr., Rajiv Shah, Les Claypool Directed by Jim Isaac We thought we were lucky to get to see the world premiere of Jim Isaac’s Pig Hunt at this year’s Fantasia, but sadly I think our luck had run out. The film still had its world premiere, of course, but the only kind of luck that led us to suffer through its bloated running time was bad.
Well, another year of Fantasia has come to an end. The wife and I are headed home today and back to our “normal” lives, which believe it or not is actually something I’m looking forward to.
Friday started off pretty quietly, with our first movie being the Korean thriller Our Town (review). An auspicious way to start off the day because while it wasn’t the greatest film we’d seen, it certainly had some great moments but suffered from the usual pitfalls of the Korean film: too long and way too dramatic.
