‘Fangoria’ lives on! Thu, 26 May 2016 21:21:40 +0000 fangoria_logo_withoval Recently a friend of mine who’s an editor for another magazine, heard that Mike Gingold, longtime EIC of Fangoria along with the art director, Bill Mohalley had left, and the fate of the magazine was in question. Those words sent a shiver down my spine. I, like many of you, grew up with Fangoria. I LOVE Fangoria. It’s a corner stone for horror entertainment. So after confirming the news, I did the only rational thing I could think of. I went online and ordered several back issues just in case.

But today the world is much brighter. Fangoria released this statement regarding their future.
“Since the news of Mike’s exit broke, many were wondering what would happen with FANGORIA, considering just two weeks earlier, we released a statement regarding our new publication schedule. So rather than keep our readers in the dark or at the mercy of ill-informed speculation, FANGORIA has decided to share where the company currently stands.
fangoria-issue-50-coverfangoria 300As of this writing, I have taken the unenviable position of filling the massive shoes of Michael Gingold, Chris Alexander, Tony Timpone, David McDonnell, David Everitt and Bob Martin as the next Editor-in-Chief of FANGORIA Magazine. The magazine will be restructuring to bring in new blood, including at least two exceptional women in the horror journalism field who will be announced in a formal staff statement on June 1st.

The publication schedule that FANGORIA announced on May 10th will continue as scheduled. Issues #345 and #346 will be sent exclusively to subscribers in the coming weeks, and our June Issue, #347, will be our first to return to stands with an early digital release exclusively on

I would like to be clear about one thing, though: FANGORIA will never be the same without Mike’s presence and influence in the magazine. This writer will not try to mirror Mike’s accomplishments from his 28 years with FANGORIA, nor could I if I even wanted to. But what this writer does promise as Editor-in-Chief will be a different kind of FANGORIA altogether; something timeless, new, and unique yet building on the legacy of what made FANGORIA so notable in the past.

FANGORIA will still be dedicated to giving independent horror filmmakers, authors, game designers, and FX artists the showcase they deserve. In this next phase of FANGORIA, this writer hopes to revive the art of FX preview pieces, which has since been lost in the age of studio embargoes and CGI, and make them integral to each ensuing edition. And I want to hear more voices in the world of FANGORIA, print, web or otherwise, especially from the endless stream of brilliant female writers as well as writers of color, both of whom offer a perspective on the genre that I couldn’t possibly imagine.

The fact is that FANGORIA has so often been a part of what we all grew up reading. Even though the magazine has changed under the direction of Tony, Chris and Mike, FANGORIA has essentially been a treasure of horror’s past that many of us still love. For what it’s worth, a new generation should be able to feel the same way about FANGORIA that the lifers and horror lovers do, and I will do my damnedest to make sure that happens.

So, in short: FANGORIA is not dead. I hope both Mike and Bill find an exceptional outlet for their immense talent from here on out, and I’ll be damn sure to read wherever they go next. I hope that you all give this next chapter of FANGORIA a chance to stand on its own, as I promise that I will pour every ounce of energy that I have into doing just that.

Please check back here at next week for our official staff announcement as well as more details about FANGORIA #347, which is currently in production. I would personally like to thank the fans for sticking with FANGORIA through the good and bad, and please: wherever they go, whatever Mike Gingold and Bill Mohalley does next, support it.”

Now I can sleep a little better. I’ll admit, I am still a little concerned that the parting of Mike and Bill may impact the magazine, but only time will tell. For now, I’ll continue to support Fangoria since they have been part of my life for the last two decades and I’m not quite ready to say goodbye.

Grimm: season finale review ‘Beginning Of The End’ Thu, 26 May 2016 20:48:58 +0000 Grimm_S5_KeyArt_1920x1080


***Spoilers ahead***



Recap of last week: H.W. has Zuri, Trubel knows about the Miracle Stick, Renard has won the election and won Adalind. Nick wants to kill him. Let’s jump into the Fight!

Black Claw’s plan to take over the government and then the world, is starting to happen!! Renard’s been elected and now more and more Wesen working for B.C. are going to take up positions of power.

Okay, Diana’s dolls are REALLY CREEPY. Not good for your kid to have a voodoo fit on you. Especially if you don’t want to be together. Aww its nice that Adalind finally gets to spend time with her daughter. If that’s the only good that comes of this, we’ll take it.

I am waiting for Diana to kill Rachel. It’s coming.

Back on the other side of town, Hank’s place was broken into and filled with the two B.C. members that Nick killed. This isn’t good. These two new detectives are annoying me already. And Mrs.Miller needs to stop calling the cops. This smells of Black Claw.

I knew it!!!!! Black Claw detectives sent to kidnap Hank. Come on Nick and Wu, rescue him. Prediction is that Mrs. Miller is dead…… wait for it …..okay still waiting. Oh man, the whole police precinct is Black Claw! It’s begun.

Eww what is Conrad doing to Adalind? Did he just turn her into stone? This guy is serious….What’s a fairy tale without a cursed engagement ring.

So were back to Tony. Monroe finally got to release some anger. And got some answers. We know where Hank is! But first we have to make things awkward and have Nick and Renard cross paths.

So here’s the million dollar question. Why are they keeping Hank alive? HA! Found Mrs. Miller.

It’s a trap!! Sh*t! H.W. is down! Not good! Come on Meisner!

Too late. Everything is gone, everyone is dead. Nooo!!!!!!!! Not Meisner! After everything that Meisner did for you Renard, you’re going to let Conrad kill him. Even his mercy killing isn’t enough. I cant forgive Renard.

Cue Nick. Time for a showdown. And now Nick’s locked up. Not good.

Knew it. *****SPOILER ALERT********

Rosalee is pregnant. Good and Bad. What if Black Claw wins? What will happen to Rosalee and the baby?

Play fire with fire. Eve cooked the two B.C scouts. Good. Fry them. And it turns out Diana killing Rachel wasn’t a dream. So another one down. Not going to be enough.

They’re coming after Nick……Now. Go Wu!!! Ok two more down. Knew he’d come in handy. They still got away with Nick to the North Precinct, surrounded by Black Claw members and Conrad. Not good. Conrad wants a book….the book of all Grimms alive and dead. I say burn it.

Wait what? This is all a dream? Or is he now in a dream? Im so confused. Ok, dreaming. Exchange book for Kelly….. Even if they kill all the cops here, that deal will still stand. No exchange, no Kelly…..ever..

Unless Eve kills Conrad. Which didn’t happen. Damn. Eve is now the one mortally wounded. I may not like her, but I feel like enough of the good guys have died this episode. Oh no, Nick’s got the stick……and Conrad is on his way. Ok she’s healed! Now hide the stick!!!!!!!!!!!!! ASAP.

I think the stick just cured Eve of, well, Eve. I think we just got Juliette back. Ugh. I’m predicting that Diana kills Conrad. And hopefully soon…because Black Claw is here. We finally get to see where the tunnel leads. Crap we don’t have Eve anymore.

Nick vs. Black Claw – Round 1. 5 down. correction, 6 down. Nick shot.

Round 2 – death by battle axe.Nick shot 3 times. Nick down. Not down. 2 B.C. dead

Round 3 – Rosalee tells Monroe she is pregnant. Better late than never. Only Monroe can make that a positive.

Winner by Miracle Stick – Nick.

Boss round – Nick vs. Conrad and Renard. We have a late player to the game. As I called it earlier, Diana kills Conrad using Renard. Winner – Diana – Death by Voodoo. Now it’s just Renard and Nick. Until next season……………..

Containment : ‘He Stilled The Rising Tumult’ Thu, 19 May 2016 19:10:06 +0000 Containment

Although Containment has been officially cancelled by the CW, we still have a few episodes left. Personally I hope Netflix, Amazon or another streaming service decides to pick up the show because it has potential. With streaming services looking for original content, Containment might be a viable option. We’ll see.
On the next episode:
With the sweltering heat hitting the triple digits and life outside the cordon returning to normal, Lex (David Gyasi) moves full steam ahead in an attempt to uncover the truth behind a potential government cover-up. Meanwhile, when Katie (Kristen Gutoskie) learns that Thomas’ (guest star Donielle Hansley) entire family has succumbed to the virus, and Thomas is now missing, she and Jake (Chris Wood) set out to find him. After discovering that one of their captors may have contracted the virus, Xander (guest star Demetrius Bridges) and Teresa (Hanna Mangan Lawrence) plan their escape from the grocery mart. Christina Moses and Trevor St. John also star. Michael Allowitz directed the episode written by Elizabeth Peterson.

Supernatural “All In The Family” review Sun, 15 May 2016 20:30:16 +0000 supernatural_Season10_Poster1


Did you watch the last episode of Supernatural? No, well beware! SPOILERS AHEAD!

On this week’s episode of Supernatural: Concerned for Castiel, Dean and Sam devise a plan to rescue Lucifer from Amara’s (Emily Swallow) clutches.
Holy cow this episode had a lot of meat to it! I find myself watching this show with people that aren’t caught up or who know very little and they are found overwhelmed. This show packs a whole lot into one hour and this week was no exception. This episode had a lot to do with sacrifice and the true meaning of what it is to be God. I finally got to be my Castiel “Lucifer” mix and Metatron ended up not being a dick after all! Who would have thought?!
I love that this show really delves into religion without being overly Goddy (yes that is an adjective I made up). This show really just shows deep down what God truly is and means to earth. He created everything and should be responsible. I love that he wants to be like a father and not fix everything when it breaks. That is truly touching. I really hope as this season goes on that God faces his fears and comes face to face with Amara. I think he has felt he has lost his importance and needs to get that morale boost back. Omg I also almost cried when I saw Kevin come back too. He was really one of my favorites! I hope that God will not try and off himself. He must realize what an important role he plays on the Earth and letting Amara take over something so precious isn’t right.
Metatron really did a brave thing to save everyone. God must realize at some point that all of the people around him want to help and want what’s best for the people of Earth. The tie in of the boys always being saved because they are the next supreme leaders is a really nice touch too. I think god needs to stick around a little longer before that can happen. In my perfect world Amara would be locked up,Lucifer would be able to roam trouble free, Cas would be back with the boys and we all live happily ever after. I know that won’t happen like that but one can be hopeful. Only time will tell what will happen in the future but with the way this show messes with your mind anything is possible. Until next time…

‘The Shining’ becomes an opera Sun, 15 May 2016 01:02:04 +0000 the-shining-opera-3the-shining-art








I wouldn’t of believed it if I hadn’t read it myself, but it’s true. Stephen King’s iconic horror story is now an opera. In Stanley Kubrick’s 1980′s film adaptation which starred Jack Nicholson and Shelly Duvall, a family heads to an isolated hotel (The Overlook) for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father Jack Torrence into violence, while his psychic son Danny sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future.

Per Fan Fest, the opera comes from a collaboration of Composer Paul Moravec and librettist Mark Campbell and took three years to be completed. Paul Moravec was immediately intrigued by the idea of an operatic adaptation telling NPR, “Stephen King’s original novel is all about love, death and power and those are the three foundational components for an opera.”

From the Minnesota Opera’s website:
Stephen King’s best-selling novel comes to life in this suspenseful new opera by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Paul Moravec and librettist Mark Campbell (Silent Night and The Manchurian Candidate). As the Torrance family settles in at the infamous Overlook Hotel, Jack comes face to face with his own demons – real and imagined. Will he be able to protect his wife and son from the evil forces within the hotel? This dramatic thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat with a dynamic musical score befitting King’s page-turner. Brian Mulligan (pictured above), who delivered a riveting performance as Hamlet, returns to the Minnesota Opera stage as Jack Torrance.

The Minnesota Opera artistic director Dale Johnson says the entire run has been sold out for weeks and discussed some of the challenges that come along with putting a new spin on such an iconic story, “It’s just part of our popular culture so, we have to make sure that the pace of the opera, and the telling of the opera, doesn’t sit too long in one place — because the audience is already ahead of you.”
