Who Was that Masked Man?

25 June 2015 8:17 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

By Mike Thomas

MoreHorror.com

In the beginning, there was Lon. As the disfigured antagonist in The Phantom of the Opera, his half-masked face hid a horrible secret, only to be revealed at the climax of the film. The formula of the masked villain had been played out in countless films, with the hero unmasking the villain in the end. This worked well for suspense, and it an easy gimmick for an exciting reveal.

In the Golden Age of Horror, villains - monsters - had faces. Frankenstein. Dracula. the Wolfman.. With these characters, it was the creature that was important, not the actor. So anyone, from Bela Lugosi, to John Carradine, to -- Leslie Nielsen could portray the undead creature of the night. (Bar Bet: though Lugosi is most identified with Dracula, it was Count Dooku, Christopher Lee, who played the part more than any other actor). In the Universal Monsters era, »

The Last Great Horror Icon Is Gone: Where Are the Future Scare Masters?

13 June 2015 9:51 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 With the death of horror film legend Christopher Lee, the last of the legendary honor guard of horror has passed on. He was part of an elite group that created the horror genre. Lee’s passing is a reminder that it’s been a long time since we had a new horror film superstar. Is the day of the horror film specialist gone forever? Where are the big-screen boogie-men for the 21st century?

                             

Once upon a time there were a group of actors, known as the ‘screen boogiemen’ who created the horror film/monster movie genre (starting in Universal Studios and later in Hammer Studios.) They were specialists who understood the psychology and performance style of horror cinema and became legends in the industry. The first was silent film star Lon Chaney Sr. (Phantom of the Opera, London After Midnight, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, the Unholy Three, the Monster, »

Batman V Superman: 10 Other Movie Mashups We’d Love To See

23 May 2015 8:18 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel/Warner Bros.

The Dark Knight v Man of Steel. The Caped Crusader v The Last Son Of Krypton. Bruce Wayne v Clark Kent. The ultimate battle between the two biggest and best-known superheroes of all time. 

However excited you might be, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice won’t hit the big screen until March 2016, but that doesn’t stop us from speculating over this, that and everything else that might happen in this mashup between two massive franchises.

Of course, it does provoke some other thoughts too. While franchise mashups have the obvious appeal of pulling together two big cult followings, they don’t exactly have a great reputation for being brilliant films. Alien Vs Predator being one example. Alien Vs Predator Requiem being another. 

Freddy Vs Jason (or A Nightmare on Friday 13th) performed equally badly at the box office, despite original Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) reprising his role. »

8 TV shows based on horror movies -- and how they fared

12 May 2015 5:26 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

With the recent successes of such TV series as "American Horror Story," "Hannibal" and Showtime's "Penny Dreadful," horror is hot on the small-screen right now -- so much so that in addition to MTV's forthcoming small-screen "Scream" spinoff, TV studios are in the midst of bringing a horde of cinematic fright-film properties to television, ranging from "Shutter Island" to "The Devil's Advocate" to "The Mist." In light of this, I've taken a look back at eight previous horror movie-to-tv translations and analyzed why they hit -- or didn't -- with audiences. "Bates Motel" (A&E) Based on: "Psycho" Aired: 2013-present Why it did (or didn't) work:a great pedigree ("Lost" showrunner Carlton Cuse), a terrific cast (Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore) and generally positive critical notices gave "Bates Motel" a sheen of respectability that worked well in this Golden Age of prestige television. The show has so far aired three successful seasons »

Drive-In Dust Offs: Dead & Buried

17 April 2015 5:08 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

1981 was an amazing year for horror. An American Werewolf in London. The Beyond. The Evil Dead. The Funhouse. The Howling. The list goes on and on. However, one that always seems to fall through the cracks of time and memory is Dead & Buried.

Released in May 1981, Dead & Buried did not set any box office records. This is due to the fact that it is very hard to categorize. Is it a slasher ala Friday the 13th Part 2? No, but there are some gruesome and realistic deaths courtesy of late effects whiz Stan Winston. Is it a monster movie like The Howling? Not exactly, but the movie involves transformations (of a sort). Is there a mystery to solve? Definitely, and this is what drives the story forward and through the disparate elements at play.

60’s and 70’s TV survivor James Farentino stars as Dan Gillis, Sheriff of the seaside town of Potter’s Bluff. »

Exclusive: Interview with 'Bethany' Director James Cullen Bressack and special guest Zack Ward

11 April 2015 1:23 AM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Interview by Kevin Scott

MoreHorror.com

I had the privilege recently to talk with the very talented director James Cullen Bressack. He’s becoming the Cameron Crowe of Horror directors by being a wunderkind and showing mind blowing talent as a writer and director even before he could buy his own beer. I was grateful to get some insight from him, find out what inspired him, and see what’s next. Special thanks to actor/producer/writer Zack Ward for joining in on the interview.

Ks: I know that you get this a lot, but you are a really young guy. You seem so close to the golden age of VHS, with a love for such classics as “Basket Case” and the William Lustig films, yet you are a generation removed. How did you discover them?

Jcb: I got really into watching VHS stuff. My Dad had “Hellraiser” on VHS. »

3 April 2015 3:18 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

At a motel, hotel, or inn, you expect to have a roof over your head, a bed to sleep on, and the peace of mind that you'll live to see the sun shine through your window come morning.

Soon, viewers can experience the scaly scares and scythe slices of the lattermost overnight establishment like never before, as Arrow Video has announced they will release Eaten Alive on Blu-ray and DVD in both the Us and UK with a bunch of bonus features and a fresh 2k transfer from the original camera negative.

Video of the Day: Watch a young boy get a bionic arm from Iron Man

12 March 2015 5:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Over the years, numerous performers have found themselves associated with iconic characters they’ve played, whether it’s Robert Englund with Freddy Krueger, or Harrison Ford with Han Solo. The current roster of Marvel performers are no different in that regard, as Chris Hemsworth’s role as Thor has overshadowed everything he’s done, and Ruffalo is now associated with The Hulk more than any other role of his career.

The performers, however, have taken this in stride, often using their public persona for charitable acts. The most notable recent example involved Chris Evans and Chris Pratt, who publicly made a friendly wager earlier in the year, based on the outcome of the Super Bowl. Both performers followed through on the bet, with Evans visiting Seattle Children’s Hospital as Captain America, and Pratt visiting the Boston Children’s Hospital as Star Lord. Now the next performer to do the »
