Arbitrary Cinema: The Laughing Woman (1969)

4 August 2016 4:01 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Join me in the confines of my house on the hill, where every week I’ll be sharing with you a seemingly random review of a movie that’s come across my horror-nerd radar in the middle of the night. So come join my on the couch. It may give you some insight into the way our referential minds connect films, it may introduce you to something you never knew existed, or it may give you a rash that requires a 7-day ointment treatment.  Or, maybe none of that matters in the end–because this is Arbitrary Cinema..

 

The Laughing Woman (1969)

 

It’s no secret that the horror film is often accused of being misogynistic. There are examples in nearly every sub-genre that certainly can validate that argument. The scantily-clad women murdered at the gloved hands of a killer in Giallos, the big breasted nympho victims of the Slashers, the »

Christopher Lombardo & Jeff Kirschner Give Their Diagnosis of Healthcare Horror Movies

27 May 2016 4:35 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

[Guest authors Christopher Lombardo and Jeff Kirschner of Really Awful Movies share their diagnosis of healthcare horror movies with Daily Dead readers.] When the Us was overhauling its healthcare system, much to-do was made about so-called “death panels,” government committees who would decide who lives and dies based on asset allocation. As far as healthcare horrors are concerned, it turns out that playing God is very real, but luckily only in film and Sarah Palin’s fright-filled imagination. Nefarious nurses, murderous docs, and psychopathic hallway stalkers in horror movies have effectively put end-of-life issues at the forefront, but not in a way that can be reasonably debated: your life, their ending of it.

We’ve decided to weigh in on the healthcare hullabaloo by looking at fictional settings that make One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest look like the height of patient-centered thinking. So sit back and self-medicate with whatever’s in the fridge (or better still, the medicine cabinet) and take these seven healthcare horrors—but don’t call us in the morning. »

Exclusive photos: Fran Kranz in new adaptation of Shakespeare’s ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’

20 May 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Hollywood, the Dream Factory, is the apt setting for the latest cinematic update on William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Fran Kranz, Hamish Linklater, Lily Rabe, and Rachael Leigh Cook are among the cast in the new Midsummer adaptation. HitFix has an exclusive early look at the film. The new vision of one of the Bard’s greatest comedies is set in present-day Hollywood, a place where glamorous stars, commanding moguls, starving artists, and vaulting pretenders all vie to get ahead. The Athenians are Hollywood glitterati, the mechanicals (Bottom and his troupe of wannabe actors) are film students, and the fairies of the forest are hippies in Topanga Canyon, nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains just east of Malibu. Staging or filming a Shakespeare project four centuries after the incomparable playwright lived and after countless artists have already mounted productions of his plays poses several challenges. (Yes, really four centuries, »

Actress Paz de la Huerta is suing Lionsgate, claiming an accident on the set of “Nurse 3D” left her unable to work.

The case moved forward on Tuesday after a hearing in Santa Monica, Calif., where Lionsgate hoped the judge would dismiss the case. The judge denied the request, allow the lawsuit to continue.

‘Aimy in a Cage’ Review

8 January 2016 10:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Crispin Glover, Allisyn Ashley Arm, Terry Moore, Paz de la Huerta, Michael William Hunter, Theodore Bouloukos, Sara Murphy, Gabby Tary, Rick Montgomery Jr., Charles Everett Tacker, Maria Deasy | Written and Directed by Hooroo Jackson

I like weird films, and because of this fact I tend to experience some truly strange and unique movies. Aimy in a Cage may be a step too far into the “weird” for some, but if you are a fan of the likes of A Clockwork Orange it may just push the right buttons for you.

Aimy Micry (Allisyn Ashley Arm) is a free spirited artistic girl who lives with her grandma (Terry Moore) who hates her. Seemingly out of control, her Grandmother and the rest of her family and friends use different methods to try and control Aimy, while an oncoming plague threatens to kill them all.

Aimy Micry is set in an offbeat world in which rebellious kids are put through Wolworth Surgery, a mind-altering operation that prevents misbehavior. In the backdrop of the film, a plague is spreading through the world and worsening. Aimy’s family remains oblivious in their hedonistic lifestyle as things get more and more dire, and Aimy’s behavior more out of control.

Aimy in a Cage is set for release on January 8th and features a cast that also includes Terry Moore, Theodore Bouloukos and Sara Murphy.
