Fright At Home Reviews: Sonny Boy, The Last Witch Hunter, Burroughs: The Movie and More!!

1 February 2016 4:33 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

This week sees two Fright At Home articles because, to be honest, we’ve seen quite a few films lately, ones that have stayed in our heads. This one also sees a documentary about one of the greatest writers of all time, William S. Burroughs. We’ve got quite a few films to cover in this one, and we’re excited to tell you Fright Fanatics all about them. Read on!

 

Sonny Boy (Dir. Robert Martin Carroll)

One of the craziest films I’ve ever seen, Robert martin Carroll’s Sonny Boy is like a coked-up look at family and insanity. Revolving around a very unconventional family full of colorful characters, the film follows “Sonny Boy”, a kind-napped baby who over the years, grows up and is stored in a cage. Beaten and having his tongue cut out by the demented Slue (Midnight Express) , Sonny Boy years for an escape »

Sundance 2016 Interview: Co-Writer/Director Jim Hosking Talks The Greasy Strangler

1 February 2016 12:20 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Undoubtedly one of the more unusual Midnight selections at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival was Jim Hosking’s The Greasy Strangler, the unpredictably perverse story of a father and son (Michael St. Michaels, Sky Elobar), a grease-laden murderer and the woman who gets between them (Elizabeth De Razzo).

Daily Dead had the opportunity to catch up with Hosking at the festival and heard from the up-and-coming filmmaker about his journey to getting The Greasy Strangler made, collaborating with his cast, and pushing the boundaries of modern cinema.

I'm curious, where did the story of The Greasy Strangler originate, and how did you get from the script point to the part where you got people to say “yes” to this? Because it is so unusual, I can’t imagine it was an easy sell to say the least.

Jim Hosking: I don't think anyone understood what this film was. I think »

20 years ago today: Julia Roberts, Jcvd, and many more guest-starred on ‘Friends’

28 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

20 years ago today, NBC aired “The One After the Superbowl,” the mega-episode of “Friends” packed with famous guest stars. The two-part episode had a massive lead-in from the Cowboys vs. Steelers game, even more than usual for post-Super Bowl programming — that game broke the record for most-watched sporting event ever on American television. The star-studded lineup of visitors to “Friends” was: Julia Roberts, Brooke Shields, Chris Isaak, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Fred Willard, and Dan Castellaneta. Roberts played Susie, Chandler’s elementary school classmate. Chandler eagerly agrees to go on a date with her, only to find out that the date was part of Susie’s plot for revenge to get back at Chandler for a prank he played on her in the 4th grade. “That was in the 4th grade! How could you still be upset about that?” Chandler exclaimed upon realizing what this was all about — as he stood »

Click here for Part 3! (#50-26)

The first decade and a half of the 21st century has brought a lot of changes to the landscape of film. The advancement and sophistication of computers has made realistic computer generated effects a mainstay in both big-budget and small-budget films. The internet and streaming technologies have given big Hollywood new competition in films produced independently and by non-traditional means. We went from purchasing films on yards of tape to plastic disks, and now we can simply upload them to the cloud. Advertisements for films have reached a higher, more ruthless level where generating hype through trailers and teasers is crucial for a film’s commercial success. Movie attendance has fluctuated along with the economy, but that hasn »
