FANGORIA NO. 319.
Fronting this issue is a gruesome moment from Quentin Tarantino’s DJANGO UNCHAINED, the much-awaited Western (or as Tarantino calls it, a “Southern”) that combines historical violence with homages to Italian film classics. We’ve got a lengthy, exclusive chat with Tarantino—who also shares an essay on trendsetting filmmaker Sergio Corbucci—words from the DJANGO FX team and lots of red-drenched photos.
Beyond that, there’s an on-set preview of TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D, plus special words from co-star Bill Moseley; a Don Coscarelli interview on his much-buzzed JOHN DIES AT THE END; director Tommy Wirkola and star Famke Janssen previewing HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS; Oren Peli revealing the secrets of PARANORMAL ACTIVITY’s success; director Sacha Gervasi on HITCHCOCK; Traci Lords talking EXCISION and her horror career; Damien Echols, one of the now-freed West Memphis Three, on what horror means to him; and lots more. Head down past the cover for the full details!
