Is this the golden age of TV horror?

6 July 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With Hemlock Grove, Penny Dreadful, Hannibal, The Walking Dead & more, Ron suggests this is a golden age in the history of Us TV horror…

Feature

On April 30th 1954, a Finnish-American actress, showgirl and pin-up named Maila Nurmi sashayed down a dark corridor fogged with dry ice, stopped on cue and unleashed a bloodcurdling scream. She was sporting her best faux-Morticia Addams dress, vampy fingernails, long black hair and an imperious expression. After the introductory trance and shriek that began every episode of Kabc TV’s The Vampira Show, the host would recline on a skull-decorated Victorian couch and mockingly introduce one of any number of low-budget and no-budget horror films for her late-night television audience. Vampira was the first horror host in American television, appearing on the air only five short years after the station first signed on in Los Angeles.

Review: Rewind This! (DVD)

18 April 2014 8:53 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A light-hearted but entertaining look back at the glory days of VHS tapes and those who still remain passionate about them today, Rewind This! is a near-perfect documentary. Rewind This! explores the historical impact of VHS and celebrates everything we love about the now-dormant format that lives on through the collectors who still pound the pavement in search of the perfect tape.

Directed by Josh Johnson, Rewind This! features a fantastic blend of informative interviews with those who were there firsthand when VHS forever changed the entertainment industry, including Charles Band, Lloyd Kaufman, Frank Henenlotter, Roy Frumkes, Cassandra Peterson and many others. Johnson uses his experts to lay the foundation and then fills in the gaps with an array of fan and collector interviewees that proves that even though VHS tapes are a thing of yesteryear, there may never be a format that will ever revolutionize home movie distribution the »

Son of Ghostman (2013) Review

15 February 2014 11:01 AM, PST | Best-Horror-Movies.com | See recent Best-Horror-Movies.com news »

Is Son of Ghostman a good flick Hell yes it is. Its inspired and its rewarding and trust me Its got big replay value. There are also enough quirky themes within the pic to craft an entertaining drinking game on the fly... which ironically enough goes against plenty of hipster frat boy douchebag stances introduced in the movie. But dont feel bad about knocking back a few while screening this little indie that could because its really all about fun. Having just wrapped Son of Ghostman Im going to keep the horror host theme alive. Its time to line up Elvira and the classic vamp flick weve all come to adore Fright Night. Youve got to love Peter Vincent right »

Dario Argento’s Dracula (2012) Review

4 February 2014 11:02 PM, PST | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Review written by Kevin Scott, MoreHorror.com

Dario Argento’s Dracula (2012)

Director: Dario Argento

Screenplay: Dario Argento, Enrique Cerezo, Stefano Piani, Antonio Tentori, Bram Stoker

Cast: Thomas Kretschmann (Dracula), Marta Gastini (Mina), Asia Argento (Lucy), Unax Ugalde (Jonathan), Rutger Hauer (Van Helsing)

It took me a while to warm up to Francis Ford Coppola’s take on Dracula from 1992. No cape, and morphing from an old guy in a geisha outfit to one of the Doobie Brothers in a Victorian pimp suit. I was accustomed to the refined stylings of Christopher Lee and Frank Langella. I’m glad, because even more takes on the classic vampire tale would follow, and being a purist just isn’t conducive to having an open mind.

There have been Italian vampire tales before, but never by the master of the giallo himself. I’ve got a good friend who summed up Italian horror cinema perfectly. »
