Celluloid Screams - Don Thacker Gives Us a Talk on Motivational Growth

6 November 2013 4:30 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

In town for the UK premiere of his film Motivational Growth (review) at Sheffield's Celluloid Screams festival, self-described "Engine of Delight" Don Thacker gracefully sat down with us for a lengthy chat about the film and his work past, present and future. What's in that head of his?

The Mold knows, Jack. The Mold knows...

Dread Central: What was the motivation behind Motivational Growth?

Don Thacker: Well, the motivation was to make a movie (laughs). No... I'd actually pitched a completely different film called 'Flexure', which is this awesome sci-fi love thriller that I want to make. I'd actually written it, and I spent a couple of years at Fermilab, the National Accelerator laboratories in Illinois and was visiting there a couple of times a week doing research. I have some guys over there who want to be consultants on the picture. It's a story about a guy who »

31 Days of Horror: 100 Greatest Horror Films: Top 100

31 October 2013 9:24 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Every year, we here at Sound On Sight celebrate the month of October with 31 Days of Horror; and every year, I update the list of my favourite horror films ever made. Last year, I released a list that included 150 picks. This year, I’ll be upgrading the list, making minor alterations, changing the rankings, adding new entries, and possibly removing a few titles. I’ve also decided to publish each post backwards this time for one reason: the new additions appear lower on my list, whereas my top 50 haven’t changed much, except for maybe in ranking. I am including documentaries, short films and mini series, only as special mentions – along with a few features that can qualify as horror, but barely do.

Come Back Tonight To See My List Of The 200 Best!

Special Mention:

Wait until Dark

Crowdfunding Friday: horror, anime, games and comics

Feature Ryan Lambie 1 Nov 2013 - 06:23

Looking for some geek-friendly crowdfunding projects to support? Then here's a selection of worthy things for your consideration...

Nb: The pitch video for Why Horror contains some gory scenes which some bosses might describe as Not Safe For Work. Just thought we'd let you know.

We may have overshot Halloween by 24 hours, but that hasn't stopped us including a couple of horror-themed projects in this week's crowdfunding selection. And on the topic of horror, there's still just about time (if you've read this early enough on a Friday) to get involved in director Stuart Gordon's Nevermore Kickstarter campaign.

A low-budget film which will see Gordon reunite with the great Jeffrey Combs for an adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's immortal poem, Nevermore still has a way to go before it hits its $375,000 goal - but if there's a last-minute swell of support, Nevermore »

On This Day in Horror Movie History October 24th

24 October 2013 10:10 AM, PDT | Best-Horror-Movies.com | See recent Best-Horror-Movies.com news »

On this day in 1986 Stuart Gordon introduced his second adaptation of an H.P. Lovecraft tale From Beyond. Like the cultclassic ReAnimator (1985) Gordons take on demons from another plain of existence amongst us is grotesque perverse and stars Jeffery Combs. (In fact most of the production crew that worked on ReAnimator returned for From Beyond). Instead of reanimating corpses Combs (through the character of Dr. Crawford Tillinghast) is involved with Dr. Edward Pretorius in experiments of resonating a process that allows individuals to see beyond human perception. »

Exclusive: Master of Horror Stuart Gordon Discusses his Nevermore Campaign and Poe’s Legacy

23 October 2013 11:47 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Daily Dead recently caught up with iconic horror filmmaker Stuart Gordon to discuss his plans for the Nevermore feature film adaptation, based on his hugely successful one-man play of the same name that starred Jeffrey Combs as Edgar Allan Poe.

A blending of fact and Poe’s fictional tales, Nevermore is Gordon’s exploration of the last days of Poe which have been shrouded in mystery ever since his death in 1849. During our recent chat with the Master of Horror, he talked about why he chose Kickstarter to fund the feature version and how the industry has changed for filmmakers who are looking to create original stories. Gordon also discussed his thoughts on other Poe adaptations, how Combs has perfectly embodied Poe over the years and more.

Daily Dead: I absolutely loved “Nevermore” when I went to see it a few years ago and I’m excited by the prospect »

Help Bring Stuart Gordon's Incredible Nevermore to the Big Screen

23 October 2013 10:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

We first told you about Stuart Gordon and Jeffrey Combs' plans to bring their phenomenal Edgar Allan Poe stage play Nevermore to the big screen a while back, but now the two titans are hoping to see their project become a reality through a Kickstarter campaign.

According to the campaign page: Nevermore is set in 1848, a year after the death of Poe's beloved wife, Virginia (and a year before his own). He had become internationally famous as the author of The Raven and his Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque. But his fame did not provide fortune, and so he was constantly seeking financial security and respect from the literary establishment.

This is Poe in his own words. Our text is taken from his letters and essays, and we have based our evening on reviews and reports of his actual appearances. Our goal is to present a sense »

Greatest Sci-fi Horror Films

22 October 2013 3:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The concept of the sci-fi horror genre allows us to address the built-in terrors and tensions developed in society that are difficult, if not impossible, to actualize and confront directly. It has the strengths of sci-fi’s ability to question our potential as a developed species, breaking current conceptions of reality to attain a scenario that directly addresses these bigger questions than those enveloped in regular drama. However, some of these questions are big enough to be menacing: we do not always wish to wonder about the scientific possibilities that lie outside of us; the unknown of the natural world can do its best to terrify us as well. This is a major distinction between what sci-fi horror and “regular” horror intend to achieve: no longer are the monsters personal and haunting regular people; they can be cosmic and haunting our professionals, our perceived authority. It is the helplessness in »

Event Pics: Tom Holland, Stuart Gordon & Others Come Out for Shock & Fangoria's Huge Horror Trivia Night Event

18 October 2013 7:01 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Last night, I co-hosted my 10th Dead Right Horror Trivia Night at the Jumpcut Cafe in Studio City, California with Fangoria's Rebekah McKendry and it was our biggest event of the year.

It's October and, naturally, we had to pull out all of the stops.  In addition to telling teams that costumes were mandatory, we stacked on some bonus rounds, some truly killer prizes...and asked Tom Holland (Fright Night, Child's Play) and Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator, From Beyond) to come on down and co-host some rounds!  Appropriately enough, Holland dished some questions from Fright Night.  Gordon, meanwhile, tackled some Edgar Allan Poe trivia and stumped for his Nevermore Kickstarter.

Regulars of the monthly trivia night event know that Friday the 13th Part 3's Larry Zerner is a fixture and he turned up last night dressed as Jason Voorhees while his teammates played the ill-fated "Shelly."

American Horror Story, Ep.3.02: “Boy Parts” an exercise in surreal pop telemaking

17 October 2013 9:08 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

American Horror Story, Season Three, Episode 2: “Boy Parts”

Directed by Michael Rymer

Written by Tim Minear

Airs Wednesdays at 10:00 Pm on FX

Just two episodes in and this season of American Horror Story is already a wicked melange of body horror, black magic and female empowerment. Two major themes prominent so far, are that of resurrection and science versus magic. But Coven is essentially a story about a group of women desperately trying to remain relevant in an ever changing world. In just three seasons, Ryan Murphy and his crew’s employment of heavily atmospheric sets and startling moments of violence combine to create a trendsetting series that has inspired other networks and show runners to take more daring risks. But the stakes here are less primal than that of season two. It didn’t take long for Misty Day (Lily Rabe) and Kyle Spencer (Evan Peters) to return to the show, »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 1994

16 October 2013 7:06 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 17 Oct 2013 - 06:29

Here are 25 more great, unsung films - this time, from the year 1994...

Yes, 1994. The year cinemas were dominated by such whimsical wonders as The Lion King, Forrest Gump, The Mask and, erm, True Lies. It was also the year Gump dominated the Academy Awards, and Four Weddings And A Funeral loomed large at the Baftas.

As ever, there was so much more to the year's cinematic landscape than Tom Hanks' park bench ramblings or Hugh Grant mithering from beneath his gorgously crafted hair. To prove it, here's a list of 25 films that, in our estimation, are among its most underappreciated. There's much horror, drama, tears and laughter, plus a couple of classic documentaries, too.

25. Phantasm III: Lord Of The Dead

The Phantasm series was quite unusual, in that writer and director Don Coscarelli made all four of them. This means that, »

New York Comic Con 2013: Re-Animator Collectibles to Run Amok

11 October 2013 11:20 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

In retrospect it's amazing to me that it has taken this long for someone to come up with a line of collectibles based upon Re-Animator. Thankfully, Amok Time is ready to right that wrong!

According to Figures.com Amok Time announced at the now happening New York Comic Con that they've acquired the license to Stuart Gordon's seminal film. Said licence includes both the original 1985 film, as well as the 1990 sequel, Bride of Re-Animator!

Amok Time will be producing three (3) action figures of “Herbert West” as part of their Monstarz collection. These are being sculpted by talented artist Jean St. Jean and are all scheduled for release in the Fall of 2014. Amok Time wouldn’t give specifics on each figure aside that Herbert in the poster above is an obvious choice as one figure. Each figure will include accessories and other cool pack-ins (such as the wild flying bat »

31 Days of Horror (Body Horror): Deconstructing Body Horror

10 October 2013 7:49 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

Your muscles contort. Your skin bubbles and stretches. Your loins throb and your limbs writhe. You thrash in the throes of excruciating pain and agonizing pleasure. Before you even realize your body has betrayed you, like a snake shedding its skin, you are born anew. Perhaps the most visceral of the horror genres, body horror represents the most intimate of all fears. It’s the inescapable sensation that the shell housing every synchronized component keeping you alive is under attack. Yet it is more than simple infection; it is metamorphosis, a mutation that does not always spell death. More so, it may even be the start of a beautiful new life.

The human body has long been the enemy of horror films. One only has to look as early as The Invisible Man or The Wolfman for manifestations of physical forms undergoing irrevocable change. But the body horror genre encompasses »

Watch: 90-Minute 'Masters of Horror' Documentary Is Like a Gold Mine for Horror Nerds

3 October 2013 10:15 AM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

  October is here, and we've officially reached Halloween territory. That means we'll be on a horror-film bender until the spooky holiday arrives later this month. There are plenty of fun releases to rent or see at the movies, but website Filmmaker Iq spotted something to whet our horror-loving appetites that's online right now. Masters of Horror is a 90-minute documentary, hosted by Evil Dead Adonis Bruce Campbell. The doc takes us inside the minds of several horror gurus, including John Carpenter, Wes Craven, Stuart Gordon, John Landis, George Romero, Dario Argento and Guillermo del Toro. We also catch a peek inside the studios of several horror FX geniuses, like Rick Baker and Tom Savini. "The basis for most of my films is essentially true life,&quot...

Crowdfunding Friday: a horror special

Feature Ryan Lambie 4 Oct 2013 - 06:18

Shudder in fear at this week's horror-themed crowdfunding projects, which includes a new film from Re-Animator director Stuart Gordon...

The nights are drawing in, and we've packed away our flip-flops and inflatable dolphins for another year. And as the autumn approaches, it's only right that we light a few candles, dust off our Mr James collections, and begin to consider the chillier, supernatural side of geek culture.

That's our excuse for this week's collection of crowdfunding curiosities, which includes a film project from a true master of the horror genre, and three other film and web series campaigns, which all have ideas to alternately provoke laughter and shivers of fear...

Nevermore

For many of us, Stuart Gordon will need no introduction. The director whose febrile genius brought such classic films as Re-Animator, From Beyond and Fortress to life, his work is distinguished by its gruesome gore and jet-black comedy. »

Kickstart This Now! Stuart Gordon’s Feature Film ‘Nevermore’

2 October 2013 1:23 PM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Stuart Gordon has brought us some great B-movies. Re-AnimatorDollsFrom Beyond and, even more recently, Stuck. My first year at Fantastic Fest was 2010 and it was the year that Gordon brought Jeffrey Combs and not only did they show Re-Animator and From Beyond, they also did the stage version of Nevermore. It was something I thought I would never see since it only seemed to be performed in Los Angeles. Last year, I talked to Combs at Con-tamination and asked if they were ever planning on doing a full tour of the play. Combs stated that he and Stuart really wanted to make a feature film out of it instead. He then told me, after signing my Mondo Nevermore poster that I bought at Fantastic Fest, that Gordon was probably going to launch something on Kickstarter to pull it off. After over a year’s wait, it looks like they are going forward. »

Toronto: IFC Picks Up Rights to 'Almost Human'

IFC Midnight has picked up North American rights to Almost Human, the sci-fi slasher movie that premiered in the Toronto Film Festival’s Midnight Madness sidebar. The low-budget movie is the debut feature of Joe Begos, who a few years ago worked at ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood and managed a local stage production of The Re-Animator (based on Stuart Gordon’s 1980s cult classic horror movie) before deciding to take the camera into his own hands.  Begos maxed out credit cards in order to tell the story of a man (played by Graham Skipper, whom Begos met while
