Bluray Review: From A Whisper To A Scream (aka-the Offspring)

13 hours ago | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Sometimes a release comes that could very easily be worth the price of purchase, just based on the film itself. Sure, it’s always a plus to have some kickass special features, and that’s good and all, but some films just grab you by the collar and scream out: Buy Me!! Those releases are fine, but there’s a special bonus feeling of excitement when you not only get one of those special films And enough supplemental material to last for Hours. That, my loyal fright fanatics, is what I’d like to call an “Ayfkm” release. Enough suspense, it stands for Are You Fucking Kidding Me?!

Jeff Burr’s terrifying and bloody as all hell anthology, From A Whisper To A Scream (aka-The Offspring) is just that type of Bluray release, adding yet another title to an already Very impressive line of films that the gang at »

Rescheduled! – Tab Hunter Confidential – The QFest St. Louis Review

17 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Tab Hunter Confidential now screens Monday, April 27th at 7pm at Landmark’s Tivoli Theater (6350 Delmar) as part of this year’s QFest St. Louis. For ticket information, go Here

Hollywood can destroy people. For every survivor of the Hollywood system, whether from years ago or any current actors, there are dozens of actors and other artists who crashed and burned, had serious substance abuse issues, committed suicide or never made it at all.

Just from memory I can name Barbara Payton, Jayne Mansfield, Jeanne Eagles, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Diana Sands and Montgomery Clift. For a complete rundown you can’t do much better than Kenneth Anger’s incredible book Hollywood Babylon and it’s even more depressing sequel Hollywood Babylon Part Two. Vincent Price called Hollywood “the most evil place on Earth!” And Vincent Price would know something about evil!

Now On Blu-Ray: Peter Cushing In Corruption From Grindhouse Releasing

25 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Christopher Lee. Vincent Price. Peter Cushing.These were the titans of horror films for a good thirty year stretch beginning in the late '50s with Hammer Horror's rise following the release of The Curse of Frankenstein. Price focused more on the campy stuff once he realized he was good at it following his long standing collaboration with Roger Corman and American International Pictures, but Lee and Cushing have a much less fanciful CV behind them. Hammer Films was retelling the classic horror tales introduced to audiences by Universal's gothic romances with the romance largely replaced by vicious violence and unrelenting unpleasantness.It was this early willingness to go the extra mile to repulse audiences that made Cushing and Lee into icons of the new generation of horror...

New House on Haunted Hill Poster from Mondo Features Vincent Price

4 March 2015 1:09 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

"Come with me, murderess, come with me." Over a quarter of a century before Clue dazzled audiences with its mansion-based murder mystery, William Castle's House on Haunted Hill brought together its own group of strangers for a night of terror in which everything—including a body swinging from a noose—was not quite what it seemed. Bolstered by the legendary Vincent Price's memorable performance as the enigmatic millionaire Frederick Loren, House on Haunted Hill is still a must-watch movie around Halloween and will forever cause some horror fans to look at skeletons with a wary eye.

Perfectly capturing the spooky spirit of the film's stormy night setting is artist Jonathan Burton's new House on Haunted Hill movie poster for Mondo. Available in both color and black-and-white (with green title lettering) this new take on Castle's classic features three of the film's essentials—Price, the skeleton, and the »

Set in a single small town, the film is a lot of fun, and I, for one, couldn’t more more excited not only for the film to finally get a HD release, but for the pretty impressive list of special features (including two commentaries And feature length docs as well), because as we all know, director Jeff Burr is a man who loves to talk and his stories are absolutely great. The film was also legend Vincent Price’s final horror film, so it’s one to pick up for many reasons!

Film Review: ‘The Duff’

20 February 2015 6:34 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A smart, snappy “Pygmalion” for the millennial age, “The Duff” gives a modernized makeover to a classical scenario involving an outcast who tries to fit in with the help of a good-looking, popular mentor. The ugly duckling in this case is Bianca (“Arrested Development’s” Mae Whitman), a high-school senior who’s initially defined by her denim overalls, penchant for burping, and extremely attractive and sought-after BFFs, Jess (Skyler Samuels) and Casey (Bianca Santos). Oblivious to the fact that she’s the most ignored member of her friendship threesome, Bianca finds her world upended when her lifelong neighbor, quarterback Wes (Robbie Amell), bluntly informs her that she’s a “Duff” – the Designated Ugly Fat Friend who functions as the gatekeeper for those interested in finding out about, or getting closer to, her more desirable comrades. Thus an identity crisis is born, one that director Ari Sandel and writer Josh A. Cagan »

20 February 2015 1:10 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Rihanna‘s reign won’t let up. Since she hit the scene in 2008, she’s had 13 No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100—tying her with Michael Jackson for the third most No. 1 songs on the chart. And she’s achieved all this before her 27th birthday, which just so happens to be today, Feb. 20.

‘Comedy of Terrors’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

17 February 2015 1:56 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Vincent Price, Peter Lorre, Boris Karloff, Basil Rathbone | Directed by Jacques Tourneur

If you are anything like me and were told that the cast of a film was Vincent Price, Peter Lorre, Boris Karloff and Basil Rathbone you’d be handing over your money to see it without question.  Add to this cast a director like Jacques Tourneur famous for films like The Cat People and Night of the Demon and this has classic written all over it.  Arrow Video have released Comedy of Terrors on Blu-ray and DVD, while it may not be a perfect film, there is a charm that is undeniable and infectious that make it hard not to fall for.

In Comedy of Terrors Vincent Price plays the role of Waldo Trumbull who partners with Peter Lorre’s Felix Gillie as funeral directors who have come upon a drought when it comes to work.  When »

Watch: Terry Gilliam's Animated Title Sequence For 'Cry Of The Banshee' Starring Vincent Price

11 February 2015 9:27 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Pop quiz – what is Terry Gilliam’s earliest credited work on a feature film? If you guessed anything “Monty Python” related, you’re actually a tad off. A year before “Monty Python’s Fliegender Zirkus,” and five years before “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” the actor/writer/director/everything man proved just how much of a film factotum he really is. Though he’d been working in TV since the late '60s, Gilliam’s first feature credit came in 1970 in the form of title designer for “Cry of the Banshee.” If you’re thinking, “Cry of the what?” you’re probably not alone. At all. Directed by Gordon Hessler — whose credits also include “Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park” and twelve episodes of “CHiPs” — the film stars Vincent Price as Lord Edward Whitman, an evil Elizabethan nobleman who tries to exterminate an entire coven of witches.

Madhouse, The Land That Time Forgot & Deranged Blu-rays Announced by Kino Lorber

9 February 2015 3:39 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Paul Toombes has played a horror movie antagonist for years, but the wicked ways of his onscreen persona are now trickling into his real life world in 1974’s Madhouse. In 1975’s The Land That Time Forgot, World War I-era castaways wash ashore on Caprona, a place where dinosaurs still stomp the scenery. And in similar fashion to Psycho‘s Norman Bates, Ezra Cobb kills people with his mother in mind in 1974’s Deranged. Kino Lorber recently announced that they are bringing these three diverse films out on Blu-ray in the near future, and we have the trio’s release details for those interested in making them new additions to their collections.

Madhouse: Featuring a fresh HD master, Madhouse will hit Blu-ray in July. Bonus features and the cover art have not been revealed yet. Directed by Jim Clark, Madhouse stars Vincent Price, Peter Cushing, Robert Quarry, and Adrienne Corri.
