Need an out-of-body experience? Fango #9 has you covered: from Freaky to Possessor to Wolf of Snow Hollow, our Fall 2020 issue covers films with a dizzying amount of body-swapping, telepathic possession, comas, doubles, and transformations. Count down slowly from 10 to 1, and follow us into a trippy, ever-shifting universe of awesome horror.
FREAKY: See that decapitated jock on the cover? We go all in on Freaky, a post-post (-post?) modern high-school slasher that overflows with gore and heart in equal measure. We chat with director Christopher Landon and star Kathryn Newton.
