Dementia 13 trailer lands

Tony Sokol Sep 8, 2017

The new Dementia 13 trailer shows that some children won’t stay submerged.

Chiller Films has dropped the trailer for the upcoming retelling of Francis Ford Coppola’s atmospheric 1963 debut film Dementia 13, which was produced by independent movie maestro Roger Corman.

“A vengeful ghost, a mysterious killer, and a family where everyone has a secret converge in one night of terror,” the official synopsis promises.

The reimaging was directed by Richard LeMay (Blood Bound, Naked As We Come). Dementia 13 was written by Dan DeFilippo, who wrote the screenplays for The Invaders and Chilling Visions: 5 States of Fear) and Justin Smith (SiREN, The Boy).

The original movie told the tale of Luana Anders a scheming young woman who murders her husband and infiltrates his disturbing family’s stately, out-of-the-way mansion on a lake in Ireland. Her plans are interrupted by an axe-wielding lunatic who stalks and hacks up the family.

16mm Screening of Easy Rider March 7th at Schlafly Bottleworks

“You know, this used to be a helluva good country. I can’t understand what’s gone wrong with it.”

Easy Rider screens in 16mm at 7:30pm Monday March 7th at Schlafly Bottleworks in Maplewood

The perfect film to watch in old-school 16mm!

Easy Rider (1969) is much more than a 60s relic – it’s still a great movie even today. I find it fascinating that Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda took Roger Corman material and gave it an European- influenced arthouse approach. Combined with breathtaking visuals, a well-chosen rock soundtrack and some classic, stoned, improvised dialogue Easy Rider is still an impressive movie all these years later. Fonda had recently made The Wild Angels, Hopper the less remembered The Glory Stompers, and Jack Nicholson Hells Angels On Wheels, but Easy Rider reinvented the biker movie (or technically created a new subgenre: the “hippy” Biker Film), and things were never

Superficial 'News,' Mineo-Dean Bromance-Romance and Davis' fading 'Star': 31 Days of Oscar

'Broadcast News' with Albert Brooks and Holly Hunter: Glib TV news watch. '31 Days of Oscar': 'Broadcast News' slick but superficial critics pleaser (See previous post: “Phony 'A Beautiful Mind,' Unfairly Neglected 'Swing Shift': '31 Days of Oscar'.”) Heralded for its wit and incisiveness, James L. Brooks' multiple Oscar-nominated Broadcast News is everything the largely forgotten Swing Shift isn't: belabored, artificial, superficial. That's very disappointing considering Brooks' highly addictive Mary Tyler Moore television series (and its enjoyable spin-offs, Phyllis and Rhoda), but totally expected considering that three of screenwriter-director Brooks' five other feature films were Terms of Endearment, As Good as It Gets, and Spanglish. (I've yet to check out I'll Do Anything and the box office cataclysm How Do You Know starring Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, and Jack Nicholson.) Having said that, Albert Brooks (no relation to James L.; or to Mel Brooks

The Last Detail

Jack Nicholson found his personal favorite role in this fine road picture: Navy signalman Buddusky, charged with escorting sad-sack prisoner Randy Quaid to prison. Hal Ashby's direction and Robert Towne's script pitches the story at the human scale favored by '70s director-driven filmmaking.

The Pit And The Pendulum Blu-ray Review

Director: Roger Corman

Starring: Vincent Price, John Kerr, Barbara Steele, Luana Anders, Antony Carbone, Patrick Westwood, Lunette Bernay

Running Time: 80 minutes

Certificate: 15

Extras: Audio commentary with Roger Corman, Audio Commentary with critic Tim Lucas, Behind The Swinging Blade, Added TV Sequence, Original Trailer, An Evening Of Edgar Allen Poe with Vincent Price,

Best known as the king of cheap B-z movies, with his name recently attached to the likes of Sharktopus and Camel Spiders, Roger Corman has over 400 producing credits. But up until 1990, Corman was also known for directing over 50 films, and not all were as schlocky as one might expect. His best works were undoubtedly his Edgar Allen Poe adaptations, The Fall Of The House Of Usher, The Raven, The Masque Of The Red Death and this latest release from Arrow Video, The Pit And The Pendulum.

‘The Pit and the Pendulum’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

Stars: John Kerr, Barbara Steel, Vincent Price, Luana Anders, Antony Carbone, Patrick Westwood, Lynette Bernay, Mary Menzies, Charles Victor | Written by Richard Matheson | Directed by Roger Corman

This week has been a good week for Vincent Price fans and Arrow Video. Not only have we got Theatre of Blood, we now also have Pit and the Pendulum in another steelbook release. The Pit and the Pendulum is the second film in Roger Corman’s Edgar Allen Poe series of films (Fall of the House of Usher was first), and although Masque of the Red Death is arguably the better, this is a close second.

The Pit and the Pendulum is actually a very short story with not that much content available to make a full length movie from, so Richard Matheson took some liberties with the story when adapting it for the big screen. With elements of Fall of the

Night Tide – The DVD Review

Review by Sam Moffitt

When you are a true movie geek some titles become a sort of Holy Grail. When I was a monster kid growing up in the 60’s I read Castle of Frankenstein magazine avidly (one of the greatest magazines ever published by the way!) That periodical discussed so many movies that I just knew I would never get a chance to see, foreign films, independent films, odd ball avant garde’ experimental films, it made me determined to see them by any means necessary.

I recall reading about Night Tide in Castle of Frankenstein and wanting to see it very badly. I didn’t get to view that title until sometime in the 90s. I found it on vhs on the Rhino label and was happy to finally get to see it, it lives up to its reputation, for me anyway. Now I am happy to report Image

Blu-ray, DVD Release: That Cold Day in the Park

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Feb. 19, 2013

Price: DVD $24.95, Blu-ray $29.95

Studio: Olive Films

Sandy Dennis tries to overcome her loneliness in That Cold Day in the Park.

Sandy Dennis (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) stars as a wealthy and mentally disturbed spinster who goes to extraordinary lengths to assuage her loneliness in the 1969 drama That Cold Day In The Park, a seldom-screened film directed by Robert Altman (3 Women) that is now seeing its first-ever release on DVD and Blu-ray.

On a cold, rainy Vancouver day, Frances (Dennis) encounters a shivering blond youth (Michael Burns) sitting alone on a park bench. She offers him food and shelter and the apparently mute teenager accepts. Every night she locks his bedroom door, but the boy goes in and out of his room through the fire escape window, returning early next morning without her knowledge. Frances eventually attempts to seduce him and the boy soon

DVD and Blu-Ray Releases: April 26th - Monsters, Eastern Fare and Re-releases

Syfy and Korean monsters, machine-gun-toting Japanese schoolgirls, and some re-releases are the topics of this week's horror titles.

While Dinoshark (directed by Kevin O'Neill and starring Eric Balfour, Iva Hasperger, Aaron Diaz, Humberto Busto, Roger Corman) and Mongolian Death Worm (directed by Steven R. Monroe and starring Sean Patrick Flanery, Victoria Pratt) were on cable TV only recently, they're already here on home video. On top of that Chawz, the "Jaws with a wild boar" offering from Korea, and the hilariously unbelievable Machine Girl are vying for your purse strings all way from the Far East.

For the classically inclined, re-releases of Roger Corman's The Terror with a young Jack Nicholson, The Dorm That Dripped Blood, El Topo, as well as Francis Ford Coppola's Dementia 13 will keep you company this week.

Retro Slave: Coppola's Dementia 13 comes to Blu-ray

Awesome news cult movie fans! Film Chest is making Dementia 13 available to fans, restored and in Blu-ray HD for the first time ever. For years, it was rumored that this Corman/Coppola shocker had mysteriously disappeared, but thanks to HD CInema Classics and Film Chest it's been recovered.

Produced by celebrated B-movie icon Roger Corman and directed by the legendary Francis Ford Coppola, 1963’s terror-ific Dementia 13 is available on DVD/Blu-ray combo pack April 26 (though Amazon says March 29?).

Considered Coppola’s first mainstream, “legitimate” directorial effort, this gothic psychological thriller – based on a story idea Corman penned in one night – was shot for a budget of $42,000. The majority of the American actors were college pals of Coppola, many of whom paid their own way to Ireland for the opportunity to appear in a film.

Although Coppola promised “lots of sex and violence,” Corman later battled with Coppola and

Robert Downey's Greasers Palace Returns to DVD

Scorpion Releasing is issuing a new DVD of Robert Downey's weirdo classic Greasers Palace next week. It is available for pre-order from Amazon right now.

Unlike the older DVD from Image, this one is presented in 16x9 (1.85:1) anamorphic widescreen and some cool new extras. I think Putney Swope is his best film, but Greaser's Palace is right at the top of the list. Here is the full press announcement from Scorpion Releasing.

On 11/23, Scorpion Releasing proudly presents cult director Robert Downey's Greasers Palace on DVD! Robert Downey's critically acclaimed Greaser's Palace  is one of the most original, bizarre, hilarious, unforgettable films that you'll ever see. This audacious social satire...even more riotous than Downey's Putney Swope... pokes fun at just about every sacred cow with great gusto, a highly developed sense of the absurd, and a good measure of slapstick.

The Man and His Dream: A Francis Ford Coppola Profile (Part 1)

Trevor Hogg profiles the career of legendary filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola in the first of a five-part feature...

“I used to have synchronized movies,” recalled filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola of his industrious childhood. “Most of them I cut together from home movies my family had shot.” Charging admission for the neighbourhood screenings, the cinematic venture proved to be a lucrative enterprise for the young Coppola. “When I was about eighteen, I became very interested in Eisenstein. I read all of his work and went to see his films at the Museum of Modern Art,” stated the Detroit, Michigan native. “Taking my example from him, I went to theatre school and worked very hard.” After directing a number of plays, Francis Ford Coppola was drawn back to moviemaking. “In my third year at Hofstra, I sold my car and bought a 16mm camera…I went out to make a short, which I never finished.
