The Bottom Shelf: Re-Animator, The Beast Within and more

9 June 2014 4:48 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Re-Animator, The Beast Within and Camp Dread are among the horror films to appear on DVD and Blu-ray this month. Nick takes a look...


Wow. Just a month in and this regular post dedicated to the - shall we say - more idiosyncratic, less delicate of movies (or shall we just say “gory horrors and not-quite-b-movies”) has the splendid fortune of getting to review Stuart Gordon’s tongue-in-cheek classic, Re-Animator.

Produced by Brian Yuzna, the warped individual behind the brutal class satire/mutant cannibalism jaunt Society, and starring that rubber-faced icon of the midnight movie, Jeffrey Combs, this remains one of the crowning glories of 80s cult film-making. Re-Animator's essentially an outlandish, sillier take on Hp Lovecraft’s spin on the Frankenstein mad-scientist story, and Combs, who you’ll undoubtedly know from such box-office juggernauts as Doctor Mordrid and Cellar Dweller (reviewed here next month), plays brilliant-if-misguided medical student Herbert West. »

Crime Classic: Paul Verhoeven's RoboCop

28 May 2014 5:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We're holding a free screening of a crime classic of your choice next week. Here's a closer look at another option: the original RoboCop...


On the 5th June, we're holding a free crime classic cinema screening to celebrate the launch of the videogame Murdered: Soul Suspect. You can find out details of the screening, and how you can vote for the film you most want to see, here.

For now, here's our look back at the first of the films you can choose from: Paul Verhoeven's 1987 classic, RoboCop.

Nb: The following contains mild spoilers.

There are many reasons why RoboCop endures as one of the best films of the 1980s, but one of them stands out from the rest: it’s so many things at once. It’s a sharp corporate satire. It’s a violent action movie. It’s a pitch-black comedy. It’s a science fiction film about mortality and technology. »

Seventeen years on, and the devoted parents of teenager Michael are at their wits’ end. Their son lies in a hospital bed, his body wracked by a mysterious illness.

‘The Beast Within’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

12 May 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Ronny Cox, Bibi Besch, Paul Clemens, Don Gordon, R.G. Armstrong, Katherine Moffat, L.Q. Jones, Logan Ramsey, John Dennis Johnston, Ron Soble, Luke Askew, Meshach Taylor, Boyce Holleman | Written by Tom Holland | Directed by Philippe Mora

The Beast Within is a strange movie, you spend a lot of the time thinking it’s a strange werewolf film and the rest wondering just what the hell the beast is.  The fact is though if you take your time and watch it you realise that the so-called Beast is unique, by listening to the commentary and watching the documentary included in this release you realise that the creature is in fact a cicada.  I know, I had to look up what it was too.

The Beast Within starts with newlyweds Eli and Caroline MacCleary (Ronny Cox and Bibi Besch) enjoying their honeymoon until their car breaks down on a cold dark country road. »

The Beast Within Blu-ray Review

11 May 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Philippe Mora

Starring: Ronny Cox, Bibi Besch, Paul Clemens, Don Gordon, R.G. Armstrong, Katherine Moffat, L.Q. Jones, Logan Ramsey, John Dennis Johnston

Running Time: 98 Minutes

Certificate: 18

Extras: Making Of, Director’s Commentary

The Beast Within hints towards a werewolf film, with its imagery of a full moon and a credit mentioning “Transformation effects.” However, this is far from a werewolf tale although it does take onboard some of the key elements. In order to make this a much fresher piece there are ideas of possession too and an overall theme of circularity and metamorphosis.

Ronny Cox and Bibi Besch play a just married couple whose car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, as Eli (Cox) goes for help, Caroline (Besch) is attacked by an unseen creature who rapes her before disappearing into the night. 17 years later and the couple now have a 17 year old son who is a »

Six of the Best Michael Ironside roles

2 May 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

A cold-eyed stare which could stop you in your tracks and a deeply unnerving grimace are just two of the characteristics which made Michael Ironside the go-to villain in eighties and nineties genre cinema. Ironside has a whopping 200-plus acting credits to his name, and similar to the likes of Lance Henriksen and Rutger Hauer, he’s cultivated a respected fanbase over the decades, many of whom came to appreciate him during the golden era of the video shop. His latest role is alongside Dominic Purcell in Ice Soldiers, out next week on DVD.

His popularity from those decades was very much affirmed when he was recently cast in cameo roles by A-list Hollywood directors McG and Matthew Vaughan, adding fun metatexual moments in their X-Men and Terminator movies. He returns this week in new DVD thriller Ice Soldiers and we’ve taken the opportunity to look back at some of his most memorable roles. »

‘The Beast Within’ UK Blu-ray / DVD Release Details

23 April 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The trailer for The Beast Within, upon its initial release in 1982, warned that the final 30 minutes were so horrific that viewers might not survive to see the end credits roll. Scream Factory has already released the movie on Blu-ray in the Us, but UK residents who survived a viewing of the grim coming-of-age flick, or those who want to check it out for the first time, will be happy to learn that Arrow Films will soon be releasing The Beast Within in a dual Blu-ray and DVD format in the UK:

Before The Winter Soldier and The First Avenger there was. Captain America (1990) Director: Albert Pyun Stars: Matt Salinger, Ronny Cox, Ned Beatty Steve Rogers must save the world from Italian fascists and lousy production values. I hope you appreciate the current Marvel Cinematic Universe, because there was a period of time where comic fans had to deal with films like this.

Monologue: Sterling Archer, Burt Reynolds & Dead Bodies

24 March 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Have you ever watched Archer? I had tuned in here or there but hadn't ever committed. This weekend I binge watched about 10 episodes and now I'm madly in love. I'm beginning to think it's one of the great sitcoms, each character is so fully defined and there are jokes of so many varieties, not just verbal but visual and physical and recurring and always true to character. One of my favorite recurring gags is Archer's obsession with Burt Reynolds. In the Season 2 episode "Pipeline Fever" he keeps talking about Gator (1976) since he and his ex-girlfriend/coworker are going to the swamp. They're arguing about the element of surprise when Archer gets distracted.

Which is why mobility is key. And how will we achieve mobility, huh? An airboat, Lana. Just like Burt Reynolds in White Lightning. Not to mention Gator! Which... even though it's a sequel I think it's the stronger of the two films. »

Appetites: Surveying Paul Verhoeven

1 March 2014 9:21 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Paul Verhoeven filmography screens at the Tiff Bell Lightbox through April 4th, culminating in a screening of his new “crowdsourced” film, Tricked.

Common wisdom dictates that cynicism and sentimentality are carefully linked, if not outright synonymous. In filmic terms, the most comfortable formulation of that argument is to align, for instance, romantic comedies with socially-acceptable (and, often, utterly noxious) notions of gender politics. Through the deployment of relationships and character profiles that support popular notions of how women and men behave, these movies are able to exploit comfortable mores in order to mainline easy pathos. What’s less common is to consider how that relationship between affect and effect can be subverted, perhaps because it’s relatively rare for truly subversive artists to be handed the proverbial keys to the kingdom.

Enter Paul Verhoeven. From his early Dutch features, including Turks Fruit (Turkish Delight) and Soldaat van Oranje (Soldier of Orange »

‘Total Recall’ is arguably among the very best science-fiction films of the 90′s

19 February 2014 9:10 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Total Recall

Directed by Paul Verhoeven

Written by Ronald Shusett, Dan O’Bannon and Gary Goldman

1990, USA 

Based on a Philip K. Dick short story (We Can Remember It for You Wholesale), Total Recall is set in a futuristic society, where “it has become scientifically possible to implant fake memories into a person’s mind, while erasing their previous identity, thus creating a fictitious persona in such that the subject believes he or she is someone else.” The filmmakers took great liberty with the original story, but, luckily Dan O’Bannon and Ronald Shusett (respected writers of some of the greatest science fiction films), whipped up one of the best produced Hollywood screenplays of the 1990′s.

Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as Quaid, a 21st-century construction worker in 2084 who discovers that his entire memory of the past derives from a memory chip implanted in his brain. In seeking out the truth, he »

Remake of Verhoeven's RoboCop Bombs in North American

17 February 2014 6:39 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

RoboCop’ 2014 movie: Full-fledged flop at domestic box office (photo: Joel Kinnaman in ‘RoboCop’ 2014) Directed by José Padilha, and starring Joel Kinnaman and Abbie Cornish, Sony Pictures’ $100 million-budgeted RoboCop 2014 remake opened with disappointing numbers on Wednesday, February 12, 2014. Things improved a bit over the weekend, but there’s no denying that RoboCop 2014 will become a major domestic box office bomb. (See also: José Padilha hates ‘RoboCop’ 2014 filmmaking process.) According to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo, Padilha’s remake of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 "classic" (as mentioned elsewhere on this site, just about anything made before 2003 is considered a classic these days) landed in third place this extended Presidents Day Weekend, February 14-17, trailing both Warner Bros.’ overwhelmingly well-received The Lego Movie and Sony Pictures / ScreenGems’ low-budget romantic comedy About Last Night. Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street), and featuring the voices of Chris Pratt, »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #139. Jean Baptiste Leonetti’s The Reach

11 February 2014 6:15 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Reach

Director: Jean-Baptiste Leonetti

Writer: Stephen Susco

Producer: Michael Douglas, Robert Mitas

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Michael Douglas, Jeremy Irvine, Ronny Cox

Jean-Baptiste Leonetti’s directorial debut was the stylistic dystopian film Carre Blanc, which reflected a world as a Kafkaesque caste system. While it played at Sitges and Toronto, the film never received a Us release, but it was enough to get Leonetti a high profile English language gig starring Michael Douglas. Even more exciting is the fact that this based on a young adult novel by Robb White, the screenwriter that penned a host of William Castle films (of which The Tingler and Homicidal are definitely worth a look, while more popular titles like 13 Ghosts and House on Haunted Hill have recently been remade). All around, it’s an arresting combination and we can’t wait to see what the offbeat Leonetti has in store for us. »

As we prepare to witness how a remade Robocop plays on the big screen, the folks at Screen Junkies have used their Honest Trailers venue to remind us of the awesome that is the original Paul Verhoeven film. The 1987 sci-fi actioner starred Peter Weller, Nancy Allen, Kurtwood Smith, Ronny Cox, and Miguel Ferrer and featured, as outlined in the Honest Trailer, some of the best one-liners and blood-soaked violence ever put to film.

‘The Beast Within’ Blu-ray Review (Scream Factory)

Stars: Ronny Cox, Bibi Besch, Paul Clemens, Don Gordon, R.G. Armstrong, Katherine Moffat, L.Q. Jones, Logan Ramsey, John Dennis Johnston, Ron Soble, Luke Askew, Meshach Taylor, Boyce Holleman | Written by Tom Holland | Directed by Philippe Mora

When I was a kid, there were two movies that terrified me as a kid. This wasn’t the creeping dread I felt when I watched Night of the Living Dead or The Twilight Zone. No, this was outright fear, the kind that sends you under the covers, sleeping in a sheen of sweat with the lights on. And maybe it sounds silly but as someone with a highly overactive imagination who lived in the woods, I don’t find it silly at the time. But now when you’re older, you look back and feel stupid about some of the things that terrified you or the film just isn’t that good. The »

Blu-ray Reviews: The Beast Within and Crawlspace

21 January 2014 10:44 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Scream Factory, ever busy preserving horror’s cinematic legacy, recently released another pair of cult classics on Blu-ray, The Beast Within and Crawlspace. Today, we have another double review taking a look back at these two often overlooked genre films.

The Beast Within: The Beast Within is the first theatrical screenplay by now genre vet, Tom Holland (Fright Night, Child’s Play). It follows a sickly 17-year-old named Michael MacCleary (Paul Clemens), who, as it turns out, has the misfortune of being the offspring of a violent encounter between a murderous swamp beast and his mother (Bibi Besch).  And as Michael begins awkwardly transitioning into a man on the eve of his 18th birthday, he’s also forced to deal with the terrifying evil growing inside that he must overcome. Because, if he doesn’t face his true nature, Michael may forever be lost to his swamp beast lurking »
