Crypt of Curiosities: The Cat People Films

  • DailyDead
Next to Universal, few studios have had such a big impact on horror than Rko Radio Pictures. Started in 1927, Rko was the first studio founded to make exclusively sound films, a then-brand-new invention that served as a major draw for the studio. Rko’s life was relatively short (it was killed just 30 years after forming), but during their time, they put out a seriously impressive number of classics, including Top Hat, It’s a Wonderful Life, The Informer, and most notably, Citizen Kane.

Of course, Rko didn’t shy away from horror. While their output wasn’t nearly as prolific as, say, Universal’s, it was still quite impressive, boasting some of the most formative and important horror films of old Hollywood. Rko saw the release of a few all-time classics, including I Walked With a Zombie, The Thing From Another World, King Kong, and the topic of today’s Crypt,

Asian World Film Festival Broadens Already-Wide Embrace

Georges Chamchoum has a simple mission: He wants to share the rich and varied offerings from Asian filmmakers with Hollywood players and beyond.

A cultural counter force to Washington isolationism, he has lined up a wide array of screenings, panels and tributes for the third annual Asian World Film Festival. The eight-day event kicks off Oct. 25 in Culver City and concludes Nov. 2, sponsored in part by Variety.

This year’s installment is the broadest yet in scope. Movies range from “Dearest Sister,” the first film from Laos submitted for a foreign-language Oscar, and

Little Gandhi,” Syria’s first entry in that category, to pioneering Hollywood drama “Joy Luck Club,” part of a beefed-up Asian-American focus.

Opening-night movie “Ayla: The Daughter of War” sets the tone. Directed by Can Ulkay, it centers on an orphan and a Turkish soldier during the Korean War and is Turkey’s official foreign-language submission in the Academy Awards.

The ‘Halloween’ Franchise Ranked From the Worst to Best Slash

The ‘Halloween’ Franchise Ranked From the Worst to Best Slash
There was no way to predict that a low-budget, independent horror movie with a no-name cast would go on to become one of the most influential films in cinematic history. But 40 years ago, John Carpenter built the framework for one of the most successful franchises ever and helped create the “slasher” genre with the 1978 smash Halloween.

In the ensuing years, Michael Myers (aka The Shape) became one of culture’s preeminent boogeymen, Carpenter’s haunting theme continued to set an ominous mood and the fictional town of Haddonfield dealt with a serious body count problem. While the motivations for Michael’s actions grew more convoluted, he remained a terrifying force four decades later.

Now, with a new Halloween in the works from director David Gordon Green and writer Danny McBride, featuring original star Jamie Lee Curtis as the ultimate survivor, Et decided it was time to look back on the franchise to determine which film is a dull

Review: ‘American Satan’ is a Nightmare of Sex, Drugs, and Heavy Metal

American Satan is the kind of film that might very well pop up as an Alamo Drafthouse Weird Wednesday screening in the coming years. It’s a shame its distributor will probably not strike a 35mm print for the occasion. The film is a maddening hyper-nightmare of smoke, hypodermic needles, and hard rock that somehow is far more endearing than it ought to be, with a cast led by musician Andy Biersack as Johnny Faust, a recent high school graduate from Columbus, Ohio who lands in La seeking fame and fortune. Johnny and Vic (Booboo Stewart) fortunately have a plan: they hook up with UK-based group The Relentless — who’ve also come out to La seeking fame with manager Ricky (John Bradley) — and add a sexy rebel Cassandra (Tori Black) to the group. Pure talent isn’t enough as Johnny learns the hard way and soon the group finds themselves

I Spit on Your Grave’s Jamie Bernadette joins ‘N.C.I.S : New Orleans’

Actress Jamie Bernadette (All Girls Weekend, The 6th Friend, Sinbad and the War of the Furies) has made the move from indie cinema to TV, guest starring in NCIS : New Orleans – the NCIS spin-off that chronicles the cases worked in The Big Easy, a city known for its music, entertainment and decadence.

Bernadette made her debut as Callie Tillford, a Russian sleeper agent sent to take out one of her own, in last night’s episode ‘The Asset’. It is expected that CBS will bring the character back, if even to answer all of the questions posed during her debut episode, for an extended arc.

N.C.I.S : New Orleans marks Bernadette’s first prime time network TV credit though she has starred in numerous independent films. Her leading role in the horror film The 6th Friend, which she also produced and co-wrote, has garnered her many

The myth of A Clockwork Orange’s ban

Simon Brew Oct 4, 2017

Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange was unavailable in the UK for nearly three decades. And yet it was never banned...

Throughout much of the 1980s and early 1990s, there were two films that many film nerds wanted to get their hands on, but in the UK at least, they couldn’t. For The Exorcist and A Clockwork Orange were arguably the two highest profile films that, for much of VHS’ popularity, you simply weren’t able to rent or buy on tape in the UK. As such, an under the counter industry in illegal, poor quality copies was booming, whilst many cinemas traded off late night shows of The Exorcist, where the film could still be seen freely.

Kate McKinnon Shines as the New Ms. Frizzle on Netflix’s ‘The Magic School Bus’ Reboot — Watch the Trailer
Ah, the mellifluous refrain of Lily Tomlin’s Ms. Frizzle warning: “Strap in, kids. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.” How many lazy afternoons were spent learning about the digestive tract from the inside of an intestine, or flying inside an exhaust pipe to fix a faulty engine and learn what a carburetor is? Now, it’s time for the next generation to surreptitiously learn about science at the urging of an eccentric, frizzy-haired teacher. Netflix released the first trailer for its reboot of “The Magic School Bus,” a beloved and educational kids’ show that ran for four seasons from 1994-1997 on PBS Kids, titled “The Magic School Bus Rides Again.”

Ms. Frizzle, originally voiced by Lily Tomlin, will now be played by Kate McKinnon, rightful heir to all things funny and wacky. The only thing missing in the passing of the baton is Ms. Frizzle’s signature frizzy hair,

“The Mask Hides My Ugliness:” Violence and Trauma in Rob Zombie’s ‘Halloween’

Looking back on this still-young century makes clear that 2007 was a major time for cinematic happenings — and, on the basis of this retrospective, one we’re not quite through with ten years on. One’s mind might quickly flash to a few big titles that will be represented, but it is the plurality of both festival and theatrical premieres that truly surprises: late works from old masters, debuts from filmmakers who’ve since become some of our most-respected artists, and mid-career turning points that didn’t necessarily announce themselves as such at the time. Join us as an assembled team, many of whom were coming of age that year, takes on their favorites.

In 2007, Rob Zombie, for his third feature, took on a beloved horror franchise — helmed at its inception by genre maestro John Carpenter — and dug his grime-coated nails into Halloween with tenacity. Insistent on finding reason behind a remake,

Help George Romero Get a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
Without George A. Romero, we probably wouldn't have The Walking Dead, or any of the many zombie movies that currently plague the horror movie landscape. He is considered the Godfather of the genre. One that has stood the test of time. Sadly, the master of the Living Dead passed away earlier this year. But fans can help keep his memory alive by donating to a worthy cause. Getting the man a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

George Romero's influence on the modern horror landscape is undeniable. And it's almost unthinkable that he doesn't already have a star cemented into the sidewalk at Hollywood and Highland, where any number of individuals creep around in Romero-inspired zombie costumes taking photos with tourists for a dollar tip. Romero was very close to getting his star before he passed away. But it didn't happen.

Last summer, it was announced that George A. Romero
