Fantaspoa 2015 Dispatch: Frizzi 2 Fulci Live Concert

26 May 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Fantaspoa's homage to Fabio Frizzi, the main composer for the legendary Italian horror filmmaker Lucio Fulci, came to an end on Sunday evening (May 24) with an intimate yet extraordinary concert by Frizzi himself at the Centro Santander Cultural. Around 80 persons were lucky enough to listen to a live tribute from Frizzi to Fulci, which lasted little more than one hour and basically functioned as a perfect resume of the collaborations of these Italian masters. Frizzi took the stage only accompanied by an acoustic guitar, a keyboard, a computer and his notes, while in the background images of several Fulci films were projected throughout the concert. After a brief introduction using the music from Manhattan Baby, Frizzi began the journey to the past by...

Drive-In Dust Offs: Deep Red

23 May 2015 11:53 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

My first foray into Italian horror was Lucio Fulci’s Zombie (1980), seen as a delightfully repulsed 10 year old. However, Dario Argento’s Deep Red (Profondo Rosso if you’re Italian) was the first Italian horror film that actually intrigued me; same age, but very different feelings. The repulsion was there, that base fear, but set within a framework of beautifully rendered images. I didn’t know much about art, but it felt like that’s what I was watching.

Released in March of 1975, Deep Red was the latest thriller from Argento in the giallo style; an Italian term which has generally become  known to mean a gruesome, lurid detective story; so called due to the fact that the original Italian pulp novels a lot of these stories pay homage to were written on yellow, or giallo, paper. Argento was already making a name for himself worldwide with previous efforts in »

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

1 May 2015 7:02 AM, PDT | | 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, »

24 April 2015 8:12 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Tom Savini’s Nightmare City remake has met its indiegogo goal, but you can still support it during its final campaign days to help provide the Umberto Lenzi-presented project with more resources.

Blu-ray Review: The Beyond

20 April 2015 11:47 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Lucio Fulci’s 1980 film The Beyond is largely regarded as his masterpiece, and it’s hard to disagree with that sentiment. The Italian filmmaker had a long and varied career working across a number of genres, including fantasy, westerns and, most famously and frequently, horror. The Beyond finds him in total control of both his obsessions and his abilities, blending his penchant for nightmare logic, abstract formalism and, of course, gushy, gushy gore. Fulci gotta Fulci.

It’s practically useless to try and explain the movie’s plot, as this isn’t a movie that’s contingent on story. Any attempt to understand what’s really going on will more than likely lead to further frustration; better to let the images and tone of the thing wash over you. It begins with the murder of a man at the hands of an angry mob, an event which opens one of »

New on Video: ‘The Beyond’

7 April 2015 3:50 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Beyond

Directed by Lucio Fulci

Written by Dardano Sacchetti, Giorgio Mariuzzo, and Lucio Fulci

Italy, 1981

While he may not have the name recognition of George Romero or Wes Craven, Lucio Fulci has had a singular impact on the horror genre. And though his work doesn’t lend itself to the sort of pop culture familiarity that unites these and other more mainstream horror directors, what he did best within the genre, he did as well as any other filmmaker. His was a down and dirty horror: grisly, textured, elaborate, graphic. And arguably his finest achievement, certainly one that perfectly showcases his style and skill, is The Beyond (1981), out now on an extensive 3-disc collectors edition Blu-ray.

The Beyond begins in 1927 Louisiana, where the basic premise of portentous evil lurking near seven doors to hell is established. Upon one of those gateways sits an old gothic hotel, which in the present day, »

Senior Staff Writer Scott Davis looks at this week’s big Blu-ray releases in the Us…

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

All roads have led to this point, as they say. The final film in both The Hobbit Trilogy and J.R.R. Tolkien adaptations (at least for now), director Peter Jackson bids a fond farewell to Hobbits, Orcs and Wizards alike. Martin Freeman, Ian e, Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lily and Orlando Bloom return amongst the stellar cast, as Bilbo and friends face the final battle to save Middle-earth from the deadly Smaug.

Lucio Fulci's Zombie Flesh Eaters Soundtrack hits Vinyl!

23 March 2015 2:04 PM, PDT | | See recent QuietEarth news »

Death Waltz Recording Company in partnership with Mondo have exhumed a classic soundtrack of the living dead. From the twisted mind of Lucio Fulci comes Zombi 2 aka Zombie Fleash Eaters. A notorious gore classic and the poster child for the video nasty generation, the film takes viewers on a terrifying journey from New York City to a mysterious Caribbean island where sharks fight zombies and no eye ball is safe.

Fabio Frizzi's score is a standout of the film and one of my personal favourite horror scores. The pulsing, almost breathing of the opening is the stuff of nightmares.

SXSW Film Review: ‘We Are Still Here’

19 March 2015 12:31 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

We Are Still Here” makes a concerted effort to mimic the style of certain 70s/early ’80s supernatural thrillers — Lucio Fulci’s “The House by the Cemetery” (1981) is one clear model here, with its slightly “off” foreigner’s vision of American life and crude yet effective ghoul in the basement. Ted Geoghegan’s feature directing debut somewhat awkwardly straddles straight-up horror and tongue-in-cheek homage, its humor seldom foregrounded yet still sufficiently omnipresent to somewhat undermine the scares. Still, genre fans with a sense of history should make this entertaining chiller a sought-after item for midnight slots, and a welcome pickup for specialty home-format distribbers.

A rare horror exercise whose characters are nearly all well into middle age, “We Are Still Here” introduces the Sacchettis as they drive toward their new home in upstate New York in the dead of winter. Both are grieving the recent loss of their only child, »

Ten truly memorable zombies

15 March 2015 2:20 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Are zombies really that memorable? When you think about it, today’s undead munchers are not exactly an interesting crowd since all they do between meals is wander around in a trance. The pre Romero vegetarians are even worse, as they spend most of their time under the thumb of a zombie master, although on the odd occasion they do rebel against their tyrannical leader.

Zombie movies are a dime a dozen these days, and apart from a few moderately successful variations, they haven’t progressed beyond the flesh-eating antics of Night of the Living Dead (1968). But on the odd occasion a couple of zombies stand out from the faceless crowd of walking corpses, and what some these ghouls lack in personality, they make up for in other ways.

So here’s a list of ten memorable zombies that stood out for me, as an avid horror movie fan.

Reviews: The Films of Necrostorm!

Recently, the kind n’ sexy rascals at Necrostorm sent ol’ Xiii a special delivery scare package packed to the gills with gruesome gore-soaked fright flicks that will appeal to anyone raised on the likes of splatterific gems like Street Trash or Slime City, far out schlockers like The Toxic Avenger, and of course the lunatic visions of the one and only Lucio Fulci! With those aesthetics in mind, let’s dip our toes into this putrid pool starting with their latest release, entitled simply Judy!

Now On Blu-ray: An American Hippie In Israel Is One Far Out Trip

6 March 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Shot in 1971, released in 1972, and almost immediately forgotten, Amos Sefer's An American Hippie in Israel was a cult classic just waiting for a rebirth when the film was found by Grindhouse Releasing co-founder, Bob Murawski. Murawski is best known outside of the cult film world as an Academy Award winning editor (The Hurt Locker), but his apparent passion is cultivating a new crowd for lost classics like this film. Through the creation of Grindhouse Releasing with the late Sage Stallone, Murawski has helped to put films like this, Lucio Fulci's The Beyond, and the unique, indiosyncratic oeuvre of Duke Mitchell (Massacre Mafia Style, Gone with the Pope) back on cinema screens where they belong for nearly 20 years.An American Hippie in Israel is...
