14 August 2014 12:05 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Linnea Quigley is a prolific actress with over a hundred credited film and television appearances including the likes of Return of the Living Dead, Night of the Demons, Graduation Day, Savage Streets, Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers, Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings, and Silent Night, Deadly Night. Ms. Quigley, who was kind enough to sit down for an interview with Sound on Sight, is currently working on several projects at the moment and will appear at screenings of both Night of the Demons and Return of the Living Dead in the Chicagoland area at the end of August.

Acting is a dream job for many people in the world and it is an extremely competitive field. When and how were you able to break into the business?

Well I didn’t think that I had any chance, because I came from Iowa and I was very very very very very shy and it »

More Brains at The Hi-Pointe Midnights This Weekend! – Return Of The Living Dead

7 July 2014 8:38 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Send more cops!”

Return Of The Living Dead screens this Friday and Saturday nights (July 11th and 12th) at midnight at the Hi-Pointe Theater (1005 McCausland Ave, St. Louis) as part of Destroy the Brain’s Late Night Grindhouse series.

Return Of The Living Dead (1984) was a spin-off of the Living Dead series that resulted from the sharing of copyright between George Romero and Night Fo The Living Dead co-writer John Russo. While Romero went to continue the narrative with Dawn Of The Dead and Day Of The Dead, both bleak social satire/horrors, Russo undertook a humorous and far more chaotic reprise of the original story. Russo wisely teamed with writer/director Dan O’ Bannon (a St. Louis native!), who pulled out all the stops for one gut-buster of an entertaining horror film. From a strip tease in a graveyard by Scream Queen Linnea Quigley to a massive showdown between the zombies and the law, »

Return of the Living Dead Part 2 (1988) review

19 April 2014 11:35 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Kevin Scott, MoreHorror.com

Writer: Ken Wiederhorn

Director: Ken Wiederhorn

Cast: Michael Kenworthy (Jesse), Thor Van Lingen (Billy), James Karen (Ed), Thom Matthews (Joey), Suzanne Snyder (Brenda), Dana Ashbrook (Tom Esseck), Philip Bruns (Doc Mandel)

Return of the Living Dead may have been the first zomedy ever. It was as far I’m concerned anyway. An off the rails and completely over the top parody homage that had the pedigree of being written by the guy that penned “Night of the Living Dead” and directed by the guy who wrote “Alien”. A very nostalgic movie for me, and an all-around favorite to just about any horror fan that I know of. Which brings me to the question of “Did the sequel that came three years later fair as an acceptable follow up?”

I’ve learned a couple of things about part 2 that I didn’t know. It wasn »

Blu-ray Review: ‘George Washington’ Re-Release Recalls Introduction of Great Director

13 March 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Before “Snow Angels”, “Prince Avalanche”, or even “The Sitter”, director David Gordon Green flexed his film school muscles in his unabashed inauguration, “George Washington”. Eying its body, the 2000 film shares qualities other first-timers huff when trying to be taken seriously by the arthouse crowd. Especially with the films that were assuredly motivated by Green’s work like 2012’s “Beasts of the Southern Wild”, “George Washington” celebrates storytelling instruments like whimsical young voiceover, shots that are equally distinct & questionable, and the raw potential of non-actors.

With crime becoming a famous trend for first-time directors hungry for authorship, (Tarantino, Anderson, R. Johnson, Malle, and Godard among others), Green chose the other option, to make an obscure film where the story is background to a thickly atmospheric foreground. (Oddly enough, Malick did both).

Rating: 4.5/5.0

But what makes “George Washington” more exceptional than its comparisons is its soul, which can be seen past »

Criterion Collection: George Washington | Blu-ray Review

11 March 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

As director David Gordon Green returns to the mind frame of independent cinema with a duo of films like Prince Avalanche and (especially) the soon to be theatrically released Joe, Criterion revamps his 2000 feature debut, George Washington at a time that seems ripe for reexamination both in Gordon’s own eclectic filmography and the American independent film scene at large. Insomuch as snagging a slot in the Criterion lineup with a debut film, Green’s title is a definitive standout (Lena Dunham’s 2010 feature Tiny Furniture also comes immediately to mind), and after almost a decade and half later, we can look back and see a brilliant filmmaker already working a magic rarely seen in the independent realm both then and (even more notably) now.

There is an omnipresent nostalgia to be felt while watching George Washington, whether it be your first viewing or one of several rewatches, as it concerns a group of kids, »

Win The Killers on Blu-ray

24 February 2014 3:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

To mark the release of The Killers on 24th Feruary, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on Blu-ray.

There is more than one way to kill a man…

“I gotta find out what makes a man decide not to run.  Why all of a sudden he’d rather die.”

So muses hitman Charlie (Lee Marvin) after his high-priced victim Johnny North (John Cassavetes) gives in without a fight.  Obsessed with the answer, Charlie and his hot-headed associate Lee (Clu Gulager) track down Johnny’s associates, and uncover a complex web of crime and deceit involving his femme fatale girlfriend Sheila (Angie Dickinson) and ruthless mob boss Jack Browning (Ronald Reagan in his last screen role).

Loosely inspired by the Ernest Hemingway story, and directed by Don Siegel (whose many other taut, efficient thrillers include Dirty Harry and the original Invasion of the Body Snatchers), The Killers was commissioned »

The Killers

22 February 2014 6:10 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

(Don Siegel, 1964; Arrow Academy, 18)

Hemingway's 1927 story The Killers is set one evening in a Chicago diner where two hitmen arrive to kill a washed-up boxer, Ole Andreson, who dines there regularly. This night he doesn't show, but when informed of their visit reveals neither surprise nor any intention of running. It's a lean, ironic, funny tale of fate, confronting death and grace under pressure that inspired Edward Hopper's painting Nighthawks and was turned into a classic 1946 film noir that made a star of Burt Lancaster. John Huston co-wrote a screenplay in which an insurance investigator discovers why Andresen decided to die rather than flee.

Don Siegel's remake, the first film planned as a full-length TV movie, turned the doomed victim into racing driver Johnny North (John Cassavetes), kept the basic plot of a heist gone wrong, but looked at the story from the viewpoint of ageing hitman Charlie Strom »

The Killers: Blu-Ray Review

13 February 2014 10:08 AM, PST | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Director: Don Siegel. Review: Adam Wing. Commissioned as the very first 'TV movie', Don Siegel's compelling thriller would be forgiven for being utterly forgettable. As it turns out, The Killers is a bit of a gem, complimented by great casting, strong performances and sparkling dialogue. "I gotta find out what makes a man decide not to run. Why all of a sudden he'd rather die." And so it begins. Hitman Charlie (Lee Marvin) can't quite work out why his high-priced victim, Johnny North (John Cassavetes), gives up without a fight. Obsessed with the answer, Charlie and his hot-headed partner, Lee (Clu Gulager), track down Johnny's associates, including Ronald Reagan in his last screen role, uncovering a complex web of crime and deceit along the way. The Killers is loosely inspired by the Ernest Hemingway story of the same name. It's the second Hollywood adaptation, first brought to life in »

The Killers Blu-ray Review

13 February 2014 3:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Don Siegel

Starring: Lee MarvinAngie DickinsonJohn CassavetesClu GulagerRonald Reagan and Norman Fell

Running Time: 93 minutes

Certificate: 15

Loosely inspired by the Ernest Hemingway story, when their high-priced victim Johnny North (John Cassavetes) gives in without a fight, two hitmen (Marvin and Gulager) become obsessed in finding the answer as to why. The duo track down Johnny’s former associates, only to discover a complex web of crime and deceit involving his femme fatale girlfriend Sheila (Angie Dickinson) and ruthless mob boss Jack Browning (Ronald Reagan in his last screen role).

“I bet you’re a big Lee Marvin fan aren’t ya”, so muses Michael Madsen’s Mr. Blonde to Harvey Keitel’s Mr. White in a terrific tense scene in Quentin Tarantino’s crime classic Reservoir Dogs. Like the gangster double act and the now iconic filmmaker, I’m also very much a fan of »

There is more than one way to watch The Killers

24 January 2014 9:17 AM, PST | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Arrow Films’ Arrow Academy label is pleased to announce the release of The Killers, coming to Blu-ray for the first time in the UK on 24th February. Probably best known as the film that was intended to be the first TV movie, but pulled by broadcasters due to what was seen as overtly graphic violence, The Killers, most importantly, is the film that established Lee Marvin. This feature-packed disc will be released as a deluxe Blu-ray featuring original and newly commissioned artwork, an archive interview with director Don Siegel, new and exclusive interviews with Dwayne Epstein, author of 'Lee Marvin: Point Blank' and Marc Eliot, author of 'Ronald Reagan: The Hollywood Years', alongside an exclusive collector’s booklet featuring new writing on the film by Mike Sutton, extracts from Don Siegel’s autobiography and contemporary reviews.

Blu-ray, DVD Release: George Washington

2 January 2014 2:49 PM, PST | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: March 11, 2014

Price: Blu-ray/DVD Combo $39.95

Studio: Criterion

The acclaimed 2000 drama George Washington is the first feature-length film by director David Gordon Green (Your Highness, The Sitter).

The film follows a group of kids growing up in a depressed rural town in North Carolina, as seen through the eyes of 12-year-old Nasia (Candace Evanofski). After breaking up with her show-off boyfriend Buddy (Curtis Cotton III), she withdraws from her delinquent friends and becomes romantically interested in a strange, introverted boy named George (Donald Holden) who is burdened by the fact that his skull never hardened after birth. Tragedy strikes when George accidentally kills Buddy, and the group, fearing punishment, decides to hide his body. In its aftermath, George takes up the unlikely role of town hero.

An ambitiously constructed, elegantly photographed meditation on adolescence, Green’s movie features fine performances by its award-winning, young ensemble cast.
