The World Needs A Monster In First Dracula Untold Clip

16 September 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In the interests of full disclosure, I will admit that I am a big fan of vampires. By vampires, I mean proper vampires: blood-sucking Nosferatus with pallid skin and bloody fangs whose ultimate goal is to create an army of the undead, or something like that. As a result, I am willing to give the benefit of the doubt to almost any new attempt to tell a vampire story. But with the upcoming Dracula Untold looking more and more like Underworld Redux, it’s a bit of a struggle even for me.

Dracula Untold is not, as might be hoped, the true story of Vlad Tepes, the Romanian ruler whose reputation as “Vlad the Impaler” partially inspired author Bram Stoker to create his famous vampire. No, Dracula Untold is a vampire movie about how Vlad transforms into a bloodsucker in order to keep the peace in Transylvania and stop Mehmet »

15 September 2014 6:05 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Den of Geek Book Club: Lord Of Misrule

29 August 2014 3:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Aliya reads Christopher Lee's autobiography Lord Of Misrule, and finds a witty book full of anecdotes and a surprising amount of golf...

Christopher Lee holds the world record for the most amount of on-screen swordfights, having wielded a variety of swords, billiard cues, and lightsabers in 17 films. And that’s a small percentage of his body of work, with over 250 performances in some of the biggest, smallest and weirdest films you could hope to watch. I don’t know how he found time to write this autobiography back in 1977. And I also don’t understand how so much of that autobiography could be about golf.

How does he find time to play so much golf? And how does he make it sound so interesting? Maybe it’s the people he plays with: a mixture of stars, professionals, statesmen and politicians grace the pages, all of them deserving an anecdote or two. »

The House that Dripped Blood

26 August 2014 12:50 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Here's another installment featuring Joe Dante's reviews from his stint as a critic for Film Bulletin circa 1969-1974. Our thanks to Video Watchdog and Tim Lucas for his editorial embellishments!  

Four horror tales centering on haunted house. Well made and acted, an exploitable entry for general dualler markets, but rather mild for more bloodthirsty horror audience. Could have had class potential except for the title. Ok boxoffice future overall. Rating: Gp.

Its sanguine title notwithstanding, The House That Dripped Blood aims at quiet chills rather than boisterous thrills, taking the form of four horror stories of varying quality centering on an accursed country house. Production, direction and acting are of a high standard, although the stories written by Psycho's Robert Bloch lack the sensational aspects to wholly satisfy the present blood‑and‑guts horror market. In fact, were it not for the title, this could be a fairly »

Let me tell ya, creeps, nothin’ gets the ol’ Xiii’s motor hummin’ quite like a fright flick that is more akin to a fever dream than one of yer more pedestrian linear narratives. And for my money (roughly equivalent to $1.32 Us cash and a third party, out of state, presumably bad check for $16.45), no one does it better than Director Dante Tomaselli! So, before we begin our regularly scheduled revoltin’ reviews (this week featuring Varsity Blood, Jersey Shore Massacre and The Possession Of Michael King) and other assorted jackanappery, let’s check in with ol’ Dante to see what bats stir in his belfry of the damned!

Famous Monsters. Since Famous Monsters is a monster mag of world renown (besides being a website full o’ great guys gals and ghouls), what putrid periodicals did you enjoy in yer frightful formative years?

Erin Corwin Murder: Suspected Killer Admits He Searched for 'How to Dispose' of Body

Christopher Lee, the former Marine accused of murdering Erin Corwin, told investigators that he searched the Internet for "how to dispose of a human body," arrest records reveal. The revelation is just part of the evidence that San Bernardino County prosecutors have amassed against Lee, 24, who police contend was having an affair with Corwin and killed her out of fear his wife would learn of the relationship. Several days before her disappearance, Corwin, 19, told a friend that she and Lee were planning on taking a "special" trip together, according to court documents.

Review: WWII Triple Feature: "Attack" (1955), "Beach Red" (1967) And "Attack On The Iron Coast"

19 August 2014 3:49 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer 

Now this is what you call a bargain: three terrific WWII flicks for only $10 on Amazon, courtesy of Shout! Factory's Timeless Media label, which continues to distribute first rate editions of films that were often considered to be second-rate at the time of their initial release. This "War Film Triple Feature" package includes three gems that were not particularly notable at the time of their release. Two have grown in stature, while the third has benefited only from Cinema Retro writer Howard Hughes' enthusiastic coverage in issue #25. The films included in the set are:

"Attack" (1955)- During the period of WWII, both the Allied and Axis film industries concentrated on feature films that were pure propaganda designed to motivate their fighting men and the public at large. By the early-to-mid-1950s, however,  more introspective viewpoints emerged among Hollywood directors and writers. With the conflict now over, »

Den Of Geek Book Club: The Girl With All The Gifts

14 August 2014 2:39 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kaci takes a look at M.R. Carey's supernatural novel, The Girl With All The Gifts, the latest book club fiction entry...

This review contains spoilers.

In The Girl With All the Gifts, M.R. Carey manages to write a thoroughly enjoyable story filled with characters who frequently make it difficult to like them. Even Miss Justineau, who through Melanie's eyes seems like angelic perfection, isn't particularly so once you get inside her head — not only is there the revelation about her hit-and-run accident, but there's also the fact that her thoughts about Melanie frequently are not the motherly affection Melanie assumes her to feel. She's more pragmatic and distant than that inside her own head.

The interesting thing is that despite these characters' flaws and unlikeability, I found myself rooting for them anyway. Gallagher was a self-admitted coward who abandoned a girl he'd gotten pregnant and I still wanted »
