To begin with, let me say that I loved A GHOST STORY. (Read my review here.) Loved it. That fact only made me sadder when I learned that the film’s producer Adam Christopher Donaghey had been charged with raping an underage girl on the film’s set. (He is, pardon the de rigueur cliché, innocent until proven guilty.) Alright, stay with me, here. Donaghey worked for Cinestate. And, following his arrest, more allegations came to light, that Donaghey had a long history of pervy behavior, and that the folks at Cinestate knew about it and looked the other way. It’s the exact same as with the Harvey Weinstein thing. People knew, including allegedly some real Hollywood bigwigs, but nobody did anything about it because of who the guy was and how much money he controlled. If true, Cinestate rightfully deserves to get roasted.
Unfortunately, Cinestate owns Fangoria. The latter isn’t accused of any wrongdoing, but because of their parent company several podcasters and contributors, people who worked with Fangoria, announced that they would no longer be involved with Fango. This includes big names like Barbara Crampton and Joe Bob Briggs. Now Fangoria did anything *but* toe the company line. They publicly ripped Cinestate a new one, in fact. Then they severed ties. This was the righteous move on their part, but it now means that Fangoria is once again dead in the water. They are hoping that a new buyer will take over, but there’s no guarantee. It’s such a shame to see so many innocents get burned because of the actions of a few. Shame on all sex fiends, and with the people who cover for them!
