Revoltin’ Reviews: Pieces, The Mutilator, and The Vincent Price Collection III

16 hours ago | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

This one’s going to be a cake walk, creeps: two vintage 80s slasher flicks and some Vincent Price. Sometimes ancient talismans procured in questionable eBay lots really do work as advertised!

Pieces

•             Release Date: Available March 1st on Special edition Blu-ray (2 Blu-rays + CD)

•             Written By: Dick Randall, Joe D’Amato

•             Directed By: Juan Piquer Simón

•             Starring: Christopher George, Lynda Day George, Frank Braña, Paul L. Smith

Pieces had a weird effect on me when I first saw it. I remember thinkin’ it was one of the greatest slasher films I’d e’er slapped my eerie eyeballs upon, as it pretty much had everything that makes the genre so outrageous, only amped up to the nth degree. I also remember thinkin’ “Man, I need to own this film right away; it’s the bat’s knees!” I then sat down, ate a slice of pizza (maybe it was a sandwich… »

The Invisible Man to Star Johnny Depp

9 February 2016 5:58 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

He's played a pirate, an outcast, and a mobster, and now that Johnny Depp is set to star in The Invisible Man, the prolific actor could add "iconic Universal Monsters character" to his list of memorable roles.

Deadline reports that Depp is lined up for the lead role in The Invisible Man. The character was created by legendary author H.G. Wells in his 1897 novella, The Invisible Man. In the novella, a scientist named Griffin engages in criminal activities after performing an irreversible experiment on himself that causes his body to become unseen by the human eye.

It's not yet known who is writing The Invisible Man script or who will direct the movie, but it is a part of Universal's new shared cinematic universe featuring iconic characters from the studio's history, including Wolf Man, Dracula, Van Helsing, the Bride of Frankenstein, and The Mummy.

Johnny Depp Recalls Finding Jack Sparrow in the Sauna and Torturing Leonardo DiCaprio

5 February 2016 1:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Santa Barbara, Calif. — It was a rare treat for those who managed tickets to Thursday night’s presentation of the Maltin Modern Master Award to Johnny Depp to kick off the 31st annual Santa Barbara Film Festival’s roll call of fetes this year. After all, the “Black Mass” star never does this kind of thing, a two-hour sit-down chat about his career with plenty of fireside-like anecdotes and even a streak of dead-on impressions of Marlon Brando, Al Pacino and Donald Trump.

“I’m scared to death,” Depp said at the start of the discussion, moderated by film critic Leonard Maltin, after whom the festival’s highest honor was named last year.

Maltin began by noting that few would have expected the star of television’s “21 Jump Street” to one day immerse himself in the role of ruthless mobster James “Whitey” Bulger. “That’s a journey,” Maltin said of such an unlikely trajectory. »

Bottle Shock – The ‘Tribute to Alan Rickman’ Review

31 January 2016 4:44 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I Hate wine!  Seriously, no kidding, I cannot drink it, smell it and I don’t like to talk about it.  The origin of this distaste for fermented grape juice?  It was when I was in the Navy (there he goes again!) I was on liberty in Brindisi, Italy (Bill remembers!)  We were in a restaurant on a bright, sunny Italian Sunday afternoon.  We ordered food and wine.  The wine came in pitchers, not bottles.  I don’t recall the food ever arriving, don’t remember leaving the restaurant, going back to the ship, none of that, complete blackout.

Literally one minute in the restaurant, the next lying face down in my rack strangling on my own sick.  I won’t go into any more sordid details, I’ll spare you that.  Sufficient to note I was in trouble with the Navy, had gotten horribly sick on a liberty boat, »

More Vincent Price gems make their way to Blu-ray with this stunning set. Scream Factory has long been sifting through the Sony/MGM vaults to license titles for their Blu-ray releases and, because MGM had acquired the American International Pictures library, they in-turn have been pigging out on the genre films of American actor, author and…

'The Godfather' actor Abe Vigoda. 'The Godfather' actor Abe Vigoda dead at 94; reports of his death in the early 1980s were greatly exaggerated Actor Abe Vigoda, little-known internationally – despite a supporting role in The Godfather – but popular in the U.S. as a result of the 1970s television series Barney Miller and of an erroneous 1982 People magazine obit, died in his sleep at his daughter's home in Woodland Park, New Jersey, on Tuesday, Jan. 26, '15. The cause of death seems to have been old age. Vigoda (born on Feb. 24, 1921, in New York City) was 94.

Examining Hollywood Remakes: The Fly

4 January 2016 6:45 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

It’s a new year but we’re still looking at remakes and what makes them good or bad. For our latest article, we’ve got one of the good ones as we break down David Cronenberg’s The Fly.

It’s often the case where the original film is clearly better than the remake, or sometimes vice-versa. In this case, however, it’s actually hard to determine which of them is better because they’re both so well done. Both were financially successful and well-reviewed. Both versions inspired sequels. For horror fans, both versions of this film are worth a viewing. Additionally, they both had great poster catchphrases. The 1958 version had, “He was once human!” and the remake had the even more memorable “Be afraid! Be very afraid!” 

 The original version of The Fly (1958), based on a short story by George Langalaan, was made during the sci-fi boom of the 1950s, »

Drive-In Dust Offs: Premature Burial

2 January 2016 11:06 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It’s one of those fears I never think about until someone brings it up - being buried alive. Just saying it makes my skin crawl, and not in a scary movie kind of way. Waking up in total darkness, unable to really move, hearing the sound of my heart beating wildly in my chest and this is before the true panic sets in. Check please, and bring the car around, won’t you? This is why I will be cremated, thanks (and save the comments about waking up engulfed in flames – it’ll be quicker, at least). Roger Corman’s Premature Burial (1962), based on the short story by Edgar Allan Poe, taps directly into this fear and mines that vein for 81 entertaining minutes.

Released in North America on March 7th by American International Pictures (there’s a story – more on that later), Premature Burial was the 3rd of Corman’s Poe adaptations, »

Happy 50th Birthday to the Batman TV Show: the Best Super Hero Parody Ever

1 January 2016 9:18 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 This month marks the 50th anniversary of the Batman TV show (1966-68) starring Adam West and Burt Ward as Batman and his teen partner Robin the Boy Wonder. The show was a huge hit when first released and still has a loyal following today. The show was a clever satire, not only on super heroes but also on 1960s pop-culture in general. Cinelinx celebrates ABC’s Batman at 50.

 In January of 1996, a mid-season replacement show debuted on ABC and became an unexpected hit. It was originally planned to be produced for the fall ’66 season but it was moved up to January. ABC’s Batman was part of its 1966 “second wave” programming, being one of 4 shows that debuted during the mid-season. (Along with The Double Life of Henry Phyfe, Blue Light and The Baron.) While the other three are mostly forgotten, Batman became the sensation of the season—airing twice each week, »
