Listen to 1977 Star Wars Audience React to Death Star Explosion

Listen to 1977 Star Wars Audience React to Death Star Explosion
On May 25, 1977, cinema as we know it was changed forever, when 20th Century Fox released a movie called Star Wars. Fans entering theaters that day didn't know this at the time, but they still came out in droves to see Star Wars on the big screen, as they would do in the years to come for The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. A few years back, a fan released an audio recording from inside a theater where Star Wars was playing in 1977, which was later synced up to footage from the film. The end result offers fans rare audio inside one of the first ever Star Wars screenings back in 1977.

On May 25, 2013, a YouTube user named William Forsche uploaded a video that contained five minutes and 23 seconds of audio that he recorded from inside a 1977 screening of the very first Star Wars movie, A New Hope. That

Scream Factory Reveals Final ‘Exorcist III” Blu-Ray Details

In my mind, I have always found Exorcist III not only scarier than the original film. Ever since I saw the film on home video in the 90’s, I think the film becomes even more haunting as I get older. Later, I heard that Blatty, the author of The Exorcist and the writer/director of Exorcist III, had to re-shoot an ending that included an exorcism which was mandated by the studio. For years, a “director’s cut” has been on the whispers of genre fans worldwide. Late last year, I found a tasty morsel of information that this rumored “director’s cut” was happening. Bigger genre sites picked it up immediately after our little site was the first to dig up the info from the source, TheNinthConfiguration.com, some credited us to finding the info and bringing it to the attention of many, most of the sites didn’t attribute us.

Rejoice! Scream Factory Unleashes a Legion in the form of The Exorcist III: Collector’S Edition; Hitting Churches and Shelves This October!

Look, I’m ready for the stoning to begin, so I’ll just say it: I love The Exorcist III. Not in a “hey, I dig that movie” kind of way. More like a”It’s better than the first film” kind of way, so this news could get someone pregnant if they were nearby me right now. It seems as if the gang at Scream Factory have it out for me, with their Amazing releases of Brian de Palma’s Raising Cain, John Carpenter’s The Thing and now this bad boy. I’m having to see a therapist just to explain how every single film I adore is getting the Collector’s Edition treatment from the Shout Factory off-shoot, and my therapy bills are getting high.

Well, it would seem that the long-awaited Director’s Cut of the film (which is rumored to be much closer to Blatty’s novel,

Listen: 1977 Audience Reaction During A Screening Of 'Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope"

"Star Wars" fans fall into three camps: those who were old enough to see the original trilogy in theaters, those who grew up with the original trilogy on home video, and then audiences who didn't discover the franchise until the prequels arrived. For the folks that did first experience the "Star Wars" mania of the late '70s and early '80s, it can be hard to describe, but this little video on YouTube should help. Read More: Watch Complete 'Star Wars' Deleted Scenes From 'A New Hope' Through 'Revenge Of The Sith' Doing the rounds now, it was actually a couple of years ago that William Forsche uploaded an audio recording he made of going to see "Star Wars" with his Mom. Yes, this is super dorky, but it is an interesting glimpse into how crowds were absorbed by George Lucas' sci-fi blockbuster. You can skip

Horror History: Check Out a Rare Image of Film Icon James Dean as Frankenstein's Monster

Long before his death behind the wheel of what is said to be a cursed Porsche 550 Spyder in 1955, cultural icon James Dean appeared as Frankenstein's monster in the Fairmount High School play "Goon with the Wind."

William Forsche recently uploaded a very rare image of Dean in full make-up as one of cinema's greatest creations to his Facebook page. Take a look at the goods below.

2014 is looking to be the biggest year for the Frankenstein monster yet with several films being released based on Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's titular literary character. Shelley crafted her tale, Frankenstein or The Modern Prometheus, way back in 1818. How's that for staying power?

Unless you're either really young, really stupid, or have been living under a rock, you should know the story of Victor Frankenstein's monstrous creation and the havoc it caused, which has enthralled generations of readers and inspired countless writers of horror and suspense.

Votd: 47 Minutes of Behind The Scenes Footage from ‘Ghostbusters 2′
Studio produced Epk featurettes usually suck. From time to time, we post B-roll footage on the site (usually in Page 2) because I love watching the making of a movie in the unedited form. I've always loved the cinema verite-style film documentaries, but they're rare. Special effects artist William Forsche has posted 47-minutes of fly on the wall behind the scenes footage from the set of Ghostbusters 2. Forsche shot the footage during FX tests and actual FX production of the film. We get to see the effects team putting together the suit operated animatronic puppet Slimer, director Ivan Reitman working out a ghost-heavy sequence with the effects team and star Bill Murray, the prosthetic make-up being applied and filming of the moving Vigo painting segments, model builders recreating a New York City subway tunnel in miniature for the subway of slime sequence, and much more.
