Way back in 1979, FANGORIA #1 put Godzilla up front, and we’re doing the same, spotlighting the updated monster from Gareth Edwards’ much-anticipated megabudget take on the Japanese classic. We’ve got a set visit and exclusive words from Edwards, along with a trip to the Aussie location of Greg McLean’s WOLF CREEK 2; Jim Jarmusch and Tilda Swinton talking their cool new vampire movie ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE; Ti West on his religious chiller THE SACRAMENT; Lucky McKee and Chris Sivertson explaining why ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE; ex-cop turned film guy Randy Jurgenson revealing the true facts behind William Friedkin’s shocking CRUISING; director Jeremy Saulnier discussing his knockout revenge pic BLUE RUIN; and much more.
INTERVIEW: JIM JARMUSCH The veteran poet of cinematic cool expresses his passion for vampires in “Only Lovers Left Alive.”
INTERVIEW: TILDA SWINTON It took a one-of-a-kind actress to breathe new eternal life into her “Only Lovers” bloodsucker.
INTERVIEW: JOHN POGUE He ventured across the pond to helm the Hammer production “The Quiet Ones” on the studio’s home turf. Plus: star Jared Harris speaks up.
PREVIEW: “PENNY DREADFUL” Victorian London plays host to classic creatures; can transplanted American Josh Hartnett cope?
PREVIEW: “THE SACRAMENT” Ti West leaves devils and ghosts behind to find the horror in religious manipulation.
INTERVIEW: HUH JUNG “Hide and Seek” allows the Korean director to reveal what spooks his fellow citizens.
PREVIEW: “BLUE RUIN” The way Jeremy Saulnier’s intense thriller presents it, payback is a bitch for both sides.
ON SET: “GODZILLA” Fango tours the badly battered locations of Gareth Edwards’ monster remake. Plus: reviews of classic Big G films on new Blu-rays!
PREVIEW: “THE MACHINE” It looks like a lady and tries to act like a human in Caradog W. James’ near-future opus.
PREVIEW: “MALIGNANT” The protagonist of Brian Avenet-Bradley’s latest indie chiller finds Brad Dourif literally messing with his head.
INTERVIEW: RANDY JURGENSEN The former policeman’s input made William Friedkin’s “Cruising” all the more arresting.
PREVIEW: “MR. JONES” Pry too deeply into his secrets, and you’ll suffer for his art in Karl Mueller’s surreal flick.
DIARY OF THE DEB: “BILLY’S CULT” On this New Jersey set, the terror would begin after Debbie wrapped for the day.
ON SET: “WOLF CREEK 2” Some people call tourists annoying; the villain of Greg McLean’s sequel calls them targets.
PREVIEW: “ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE” Lucky McKee and Chris Sivertson rework their formative first feature as a meatier, bloodier project.
INTERVIEW: SCOTT SNYDER The comics writer is far from done telling the century-spanning saga of the “American Vampire.”
INTERVIEW: TOM SPINA When you want a screen creature to look its best/worst again, he’s the man you call.
