El Eslabon Podrido (The Rotten Link): Watch The Trailer For Diment's Next Now

2 May 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Argentina's Valentin Javier Diment won himself a lot of love in these pages with his La Memoria Del Muerto (Memory of the Dead), his deliriously strange 2011 effort that played like the bastard love child of Sam Raimi and Dario Argento. And while Diment has certainly kept himself busy in the years since as a producer, writer and director he has not returned to the director's chair until now with El Eslabon Podrido (The Rotten Link).A dark - you might even say grisly - black comedy about the residents of a remote village turning on one another, Diment's latest has been selected to take part in the Blood Window Galas at the Cannes Marche du Film and we've got the first trailer - subtitles included...

Udine 2015 Review: The Wicked, An Effectively Thrilling Exercise In Low-Budget Filmmaking

1 May 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Bolstered and braced by a wonderfully sinister performance from the relatively unknown young South Korean actress Park Ju-hui, Yoo Young-sun's The Wicked is a slow-paced but nicely modulated and effectively gripping exercise in low-budget indie filmmaking. Shot in a mere 10 days, for just $10,000, veteran assistant director Yoo's debut feature overcomes its budgetary limitations and proves to be a robustly satisfying throwback to 80s and 90s psycho horror-thrillers.Although at first it feels like an office-set social drama that focuses on issues such as mobbing and unhealthy competition among co-workers, as the story progresses The Wicked begins to reveal layers of evil that reach to a heart of darkness worthy of Dario Argento and John Carpenter.The original Korean title, which literally translates as "The Witch",...

April Ghouls Drive-in Monster-rama: Cinema Retro's Hank Reineke Reports

1 May 2015 7:02 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Hank Reineke

On the weekend of April 24-25, DVD Drive-In and the Riverside Drive-In in Vandergrift, Pa, hosted the third annual April Ghouls Drive-In Monster-Rama. This springtime festival of 1970s and 1980s exploitation horror-films, now in its third year, is the more recent sister to September’s glorious Drive-In Super Monster-Rama. This latter event, which will enjoy its ninth incarnation this coming autumn, generally features a slate of more “traditional” monster movies from the 1960s and 1970s. Neither weekend of programming should be missed by any horror film devotee with access to an automobile. The intent of the original Drive-In Super Monster-Rama (first presented at the Riverside in 2007) was to authentically re-create the ambiance of the all-night drive-in theater spook shows of the 1960s and 1970s. In this regard, the event succeeds in every possible manner.

Co-sponsored from its inception by George Reis of the cult-film website “DVD Drive-In” and the Riverside Drive-In, »

DVD Review – The Duke of Burgundy (2014)

27 April 2015 12:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Duke of Burgundy, 2014.

Directed by Peter Strickland.

Starring Sidse Babett Knudsen, Monica Swinn, Chiara D’Anna, Fatma Mohamed and Zita Kraszkó.

Synopsis:

A relationship based around mistress and submissive begins to deteriorate as repetition begins to set in.

Peter Strickland is a filmmaker with the uncanny knack of being able to make films that draw from many influences but go off in a completely different, and unexpected, direction. His previous film, 2012’s Berberian Sound Studio, came at you with the pretence of being a giallo, coming from the same stable as the works of Mario Bava and Dario Argento, and whilst it did indeed embrace many of the tropes of those filmmakers and set up a similar atmosphere it ended up being an unconventional but totally unique sensory experience.

The Duke of Burgundy employs a similar method of execution, opening with a simple scene of Evelyn (Berberian Sound Studio’s »

The Beyond: Sergio Martino’s Torso

23 April 2015 11:56 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

In 1973, after prolific director Sergio Martino made three formative giallo films — The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh, All the Colors of the Dark, and Your Vice Is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key — the filmmaker created a giallo-slasher hybrid that conflated sex, violence, and art. Torso was released a decade before Dario Argento’s Tenebre, but…

‘Blood and Black Lace’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

14 April 2015 8:07 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Cameron Mitchell, Eva Bartok, Thomas Reiner, Ariana Gorini, Dante Dipaolo, Mary Arden, Franco Ressel, Claude Dantes, Luciano Pigozzi, Lea Krugher, Massimo Righi | Written by Marcello Fondato | Directed by Mario Bava

Mario Bava’s Blood and Black Lace may not be the first Giallo film but it is the one that many took inspiration from and the genre itself formed from, especially the themes and style.  When a young model is killed by a mysterious masked figure she leaves behind a diary which may hold evidence as to the identity of her assailant.  As more women from the same fashion house die at the hands of the killer the police try to find the culprit.  In a tale of blood and blackmail, can they stop the killer before it is too late?

Blood and Black Lace is a movie that flits not only between genres but also somewhat bravely for »

Blu-ray Review – Blood & Black Lace (1964)

13 April 2015 1:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Blood & Black Lace, 1964.

Directed by Mario Bava.

Starring Cameron Mitchell, Eva Bartok, Thomas Reiner, Mary Arden, Ariana Gorini, Francesca Ungaro.

Synopsis:

A fashion house full of beautiful models becomes the setting for a bloodbath at the hands of a mysterious killer.

The film most recognised as kickstarting the giallo genre, Mario Bava’s 1964 thriller Blood & Black Lace has been given a complete restoration by Arrow Films, and if any of Bava’s films – particularly his earlier works – lend themselves to such a task than this is it. Not because it is a film that needs to be tidied up as much as it is such a visually striking film that not to be able to see it in as vivid and clean a print as possible would be as much of a crime as the events in it.

Like many of the giallo films that followed it, Blood & Black Lace »

Django and Suspira heading to the small screen

10 April 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

France’s Atlantique Productions and Italy’s Cattleya have announced that they have signed a co-development and co-production deal to bring two cult Italian movies to the small screen in Sergio Cobucci’s spaghetti western Django and Dario Argento’s horror Suspira.

First up will be a retelling of Django, “with the grit and edginess of modern television dramas”, followed by Suspiria De Profundis, an English language period horror “styled as the new Sherlock Holmes [which will] explore psychological fantasies of evil and attempt to solve fearful mysteries [with] storylines that reflect the clash between light and dark, progress and regression.”

Both shows have received twelve 50-minute episode orders, with storylines that will go on to develop over multiple seasons.

Italian cult films ‘Django’ and Dario Argento’s ‘Suspiria’ to be adapted for television

8 April 2015 9:40 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Two international producing companies, France’s Atlantique Productions and Italy’s Cattleya, have joined forces to co-develop and produce television adaptations of two cult Italian film properties.

According to Slashfilm, the two companies intend to adapt the spaghetti western icon Django based from Sergio Corbucci’s original film and Italian horror film classic Suspiria by Dario Argento which was inspired by the 1845 novel Suspiria De Profundis by Thomas De Qunicey. The companies intend for both shows be in English language and to produce twelve episode seasons with a running time up to 50 minutes per episode with the hope for multiple seasons.

The concept of Django seems well-suited for a television adaptation, being that the character of Django has become an icon of the western landscape much like a James Bond (in spy films) or a Batman (in the superhero genre), where the performer of the character has become secondary to the legend. »

The Suspiria film remake may be dead, but that doesn’t mean you can keep a coven of witches down. There’s now a Suspiria TV series in development out of Europe, with original writer/director Dario Argento on board as “artistic consultant.” But you’re probably not expecting precisely this plan for the TV version of Argento’s film […]

'Django' And 'Suspiria' TV Shows In Development

8 April 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It seems, these days, television executives aren't taking meetings with young writers to hear new pitches. Instead, they're just looking to see what properties are still out there that might have a viable idea for a series. Which leads us to two cult movies getting thrown into the TV show development pile. Screen Daily reports that French and Italian producers Atlantique Productions and Cattleya are teaming up to bring Sergio Corbucci's Franco Nero-starring spaghetti western, "Django," and Dario Argento's horror classic, "Suspiria," to the small screen. Both titles have swirled around recently in the pop culture sphere, the former as one of the key influences on Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" (Franco Nero even had a small role), while David Gordon Green tried to mount a remake of Argento's, only to see it fall apart. So what will these shows bring to the table? Read More: 10 Movies »

'Django' and Dario Argento's 'Suspiria' Getting Classy TV Series Remakes

8 April 2015 9:23 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

In a watershed deal for the Italian television industry, two production companies have inked a development and production pact to turn the spaghetti western "Django" and the Dario Argento-directed occult horror film "Suspiria" into international TV series. French television producer Atlantique Productions and top Italian indie production company Cattleya will first re-imagine Sergio Corbucci's 1966 western — which of course spawned Quentin Tarantino's own homage, the slave revenge western "Django Unchained," along with a bevy of sequels and spinoffs— "with the grit and edginess of modern television dramas," per a press release. The overseas producers will then jump into the "smart horror" parade with "Suspiria De Profundis," from the 19th century Thomas De Quincey novel that influenced Dario Argento's stylish, seminal 1977 giallo horror. Though directors, showrunners and casts have yet to be unveiled, Argento will serve as »

Sergio Corbucci's Django Heads For TV

8 April 2015 8:16 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Sorry, Quentin Tarantino fans, but the characters from Django Unchained are not headed for our telly boxes any time soon, at least outside of the movie showing on Netflix etc. Still, a French TV company wants to turn the idea of the 1966 inspiration for Qt’s film and a version of Dario Argento’s Suspiria into TV series.Django would reimagine Sergio Corbucci's cult 1960s Western, which helped turn Franco Nero into an icon and saw the coffin-dragging gunslinger take on a bandit chief. The concept was potent enough to spawn sequels, spin-offs and homages, which included Tarantino’s 2012 effort. It will be an English-language show with plans for an initial season of 12 episodes running 50 minutes each and, if successful, multiple follow-ups.There’s a similar hope for Suspiria, which would transform 19th century writer Thomas De Quincey’s Suspiria De Profundis into a series, working from the same »
