Canadian Cult Cinema: The Overlooked & Underrated

21 April 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

You love the horror, suspense thriller, action and science fiction films that make up the world of Canadian cult cinema affectionately known as Canuxploitation.

You’ve watched the entire David Cronenberg genre filmography (if not, please do so now as The Brood, Scanners and The Fly are three of the greatest horror films ever made).

You’ve seen Black Christmas and The Changeling and watched a slasher-ific marathon of Prom Night, Terror Train, Happy Birthday to Me and My Bloody Valentine.

You caught up with Cube, the Ginger Snaps series, Splice, Hobo with a Shotgun and WolfCop all while keeping close tabs on the works of Astron-6.

Yet your hunger for Canadian genre film productions and co-productions cannot be satiated.

To aid you in your deeper exploration of the field, following is a chronological look at a number of Canadian genre films that simply don’t get enough attention.

Blu-ray Review: Class of 1984

14 April 2015 5:11 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Around the time I brought this Vestron Video release home from my local video store, I had an adolescent fascination with how the punk rock subculture that influenced my development had been portrayed in the media. In everything from video games to television and films, punk rockers were mostly portrayed as villains. There was a mythological aura surrounding the way these rebellious thugs were portrayed and it's clear in Class of 1984 that filmmaker Mark L. Lester (Commando) had a similar fascination and knew that pushing the legend made for better cinema.

Lester proudly declares now that he was prophetically making a film that bares important social significance and considers it to be the best film he's ever made, but let's be honest and admit that this movie is pure sleazy exploitation. Don't get me wrong, I love some good fun exploitation and as far as that's concerned there's no »

Contest: Win the Class of 1984 Collector’s Edition Blu-ray

10 April 2015 4:06 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

When someone says they're "surviving high school," it can usually be considered an exaggeration, but when it comes to the teachers and students of Lincoln High, there's a literal truth in the phrase. Sinister students stalk the school's halls and don't hesitate to teach their own warped lessons to teachers after the bell rings in Mark L. Lester's Class of 1984. Scream Factory is releasing the early ’80s thriller in a Collector's Edition Blu-ray on April 14th, and we've been provided with two copies to give away to a couple of lucky Daily Dead readers.

"Synopsis: The teachers at Lincoln High have a very dangerous problem… their students!

Andrew Norris (Perry King, Lipstick, Mandingo), an idealistic and naive music teacher, has moved into a new community with his pregnant wife, Diane (Merrie Lynn Ross, General Hospital), only to find his new job is an academic abyss. Appalled by the crime-infested school, »

The Best of “Movie Poster of the Day,” Part 10

10 April 2015 7:51 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: 1936 alternative one sheet for Modern Times (Charlie Chaplin, USA, 1936), designer unknown, and Us one sheet for The Shining (Stanley Kubrick, USA, 1980), designer: Saul Bass (1920-1996).As serendipity would have it, the two most popular posters of the past three months of Movie Poster of the Day were these two black and yellow faces, one a little-known 1930s poster by a journeyman designer at a budget print house, the other a very well known 1980s poster by the most recognizable name in movie poster design. Modern Times and Modern Horror. I’m hoping the love they received (over 500 likes and reblogs for each) were just as much about the items they were promoting: one my article on Leader Press, the other the Poster Boys podcast on Saul Bass by fellow movie poster aficionados (and ace designers) Sam Smith and Brandon Schaefer. Another Poster Boys related poster—Drew Struzan’s The Thing—also made the list. »

Class of 1984 Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Trailer & Clips

9 April 2015 4:35 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Detention doesn't solve problems in Class of 1984. The atrocious actions of the unruly students call for a far more intense form of discipline that Mr. Norris is pushed to dish out in the early ’80s thriller from Mark L. Lester. Soon, you can experience Class of 1984’s extracurricular revenge like never before, as Scream Factory's Collector's Edition Blu-ray of the film comes out on April 14th. Ahead of its release, we have the trailer and two clips from the Blu-ray, giving us a look at a young Michael J. Fox and a gun-wielding Roddy McDowall.

Teachers Vs. Students When Scream Factory Unleashes Class On 1984 This April!!

13 February 2015 11:01 AM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

When it comes to cult films of the ’80s, the Mark L. Lester (Commando, Firestarter)-helmed Class Of 1984 has always been one that has held a special place in my heart. I caught it for the first time as a kid, when my grandmother and I watched TV together and this gem of a film came on, and my grandmother and I were both equally on edge. The “teacher vs. rebel students” film is by far one of my favorite films, so when Scream Factory e-mailed me about their upcoming Bluray debut of Class Of 1984 hitting shelves (and online stores) on April 14th, the idea of a brand new, collector’s edition Bluray instantly gave me a smile from ear to ear. The film has everything from a script co-written by horror legend Tom Holland, a kickass Alice Cooper song, an early appearance by Michael J.Fox, and »

First trailer for Adam Green’s Digging Up the Marrow

25 January 2015 8:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first trailer has been released for Digging Up the Marrow, the latest offering from filmmaker Adam Green (Hatchet, Frozen), and you can check it out below after the official synopsis…

What if the ghastly images and abominations haunting our collective nightmares actually exist? Writer/director Adam Green (Hatchet) sets out to make a documentary exploring this tantalizing premise after being contacted by a mysterious man named William Dekker (Ray Wise). Dekker claims he can prove that “monsters are real” and insists these grotesque creatures are forgotten, hideously deformed humanoids inhabiting a vast, underground metropolis of the damned. Determined to expose the truth, Green embarks on a bone-chilling odyssey and gets more than he bargains for when he dares to go Digging Up the Marrow.

Digging Up the Marrow features a cast that includes Ray Wise, Kane Hodder, Will Barratt, Rileah Vanderbilt, Josh Ethier, Tom Holland, Mick Garris, Sarah Elbert and Alex Pardee. »

Mr. Hush (2011) review

Mr. Hush (2011)

Written by: David Lee Madison

Directed by: David Lee Madison

Cast: Brad Loree (Holland Taylor), Edward X. Young (Mr. Hush), Stephen Geoffreys (Stark), Steve Dash (Mac), Jessica Cameron (Julie), Connie Giordano (Debbie)

I don’t want to reveal my hand to early on this one, but then again you guys probably know by now that I don’t rip into any film to tear it to shreds. Typically, it’s for two reasons. I see what they were trying to do with a limited budget. The heart is there, but the money ain’t. Also, I’ve had to double back on my opinions of films on the first watch. Hating it in the beginning, and then seeing something or things on another viewing that shows me that I had a gross error in judgment. Well, “Mr. Hush” puts me into a purgatory of indecision. »

Movie Poster of the Week: An Interview with “Frank” Poster Designer Nicolette Vilar

16 January 2015 8:55 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Last month I selected the poster for Lenny Abrahamson’s Frank as my favorite poster of 2014. In the article I invited the “as-yet uncredited designer at P+A studio” to “come out from behind the mask and take a bow,” and so I was very pleased when I got an email from Nicolette Vilar a few days later letting me know that she was the P+A designer behind the giant papier-mâché head.

Nicolette, it turns out, was the perfect designer for a film about a fractured rock band, because as well as being a talented artist she is also the on-again, off-again lead singer of the all-female punk pop group Go Betty Go who have recently reunited and have a new Ep out this month. The band formed in 2001, released two CDs and played on the Vans Warped Tour, but Nicolette left in 2005. She recently rejoined the band with »
