‘Phantom of the Opera: The Motion Picture’ (1989) is an oft forgotten, but no less formidable film version of the classic tale

25 October 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Phantom of the Opera: The Motion Picture

Written by Gerry O’Hara and Duke Sandefur

Directed by Dwight H. Little

United States, 1989

Nearly 30 years went by since the 1962 Hammer Films production of The Phantom of the Opera until the ghoulish fiend made his way back onto the silver screen. An interesting turning point for the property, if it can be described as such, came in 1986, when arguably the most popular interpretation of the story ever graced not the movie theatres but rather the opera houses. Andrew Lloyd Weber’s sensational stage adaptation was all the craze in the 1980s and is still recognized as a tremendous success and achievement today. As such, it was only natural that filmmakers would want to pounce on the popularity of the title and produce yet another version, to say nothing of the fact that the rights had gone into the public domain by 1989. Enter producer Menahem Golan, »

First Details About Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3, Episode 2 Revealed

21 September 2015 4:18 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

The third season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is finally going to embrace superpowers, as Agent Coulson and Daisy Johnson/Quake look to assemble the Secret Warriors. The team of Inhumans won’t just be battling their own kind though, as it sounds like Asgardians will once again factor into the Marvel and ABC series.

However, rather than an enemy, this member of Thor’s race – who won’t be Jaimie Alexander’s Sif (she’s busy starring in Blindspot) – sounds like he’ll be an ally in the quest to discover where exactly Simmons vanished to at the end of season two.

Here’s the official synopsis courtesy of ABC:

Review: How to be a Superhero

How to be a Superhero

By Mark Edlitz

Bear Manor Media, 586 pages, $42.95/$29.95

Longtime readers of pop culture magazines have no doubt read interviews with actors who have donned capes, cowls, spandex, and prosthetics to portray heroes and villains drawn from comic books. I certainly was involved in my fair share of such interviews working at Starlog Press and its successors have continued, especially contemporary online outlets which are enjoying a bonanza of options.

Most of those interviews tend to be about the most immediate project with little insight or context about an actor’s association with a media property or being the latest in a long line to play the same role. And certainly, these interviews are sandwiched between news, features, and other topics. So, it’s a bit of a surprise that such a collection has not been attempted before.

Thanks to SneakPeekTV.Com, Sneak Peek producer Roger Corman's 1992 "The Fantastic Four" feature in its entirety, plus a trailer from director Marty Langford's documentary "Doomed ! The Untold Story of Roger Corman's 'The Fantastic Four':

Low-budget film producer Corman reportedly finished the New Horizons feature in 1992 and although filming was completed, the picture was never officially released.

"...in a flashback, 'Reed Richards' (Alex Hyde-White) and 'Victor Von Doom' (Joseph Culp) are college friends who use the opportunity of a passing comet to try an experiment; however, the experiment goes wrong, leaving Victor horribly scarred. 'Sue' and 'Johnny Storm' are two children living with their mother, who has a boarding house where Reed lives. 'Ben Grimm' (Michael Bailey Smith), is a family friend and a college buddy of Reed's.

Review: The Phantom of the Opera (Blu-ray)

23 February 2015 9:52 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Growing up, I was a huge Freddy Krueger fan. I had also become infatuated with Gaston Leroux’s novel, The Phantom of the Opera, which made me a pretty easy mark for Dwight H. Little’s (Halloween 4) 1989 film based on the popular work of fiction. Focusing more on the horror contained within Leroux’s original story, this version is a wickedly ghastly and blood-soaked tale of obsession that allows Robert Englund the room to do what he does best as a performer- go nuts. And after recently checking out the Scream Factory Blu-ray, it was great to see just how well Little’s inventive adaptation has held up over time and how much fun the film still remains, despite its age.

In this Phantom of the Opera, Jill Schoelen portrays an aspiring singer by the name of Christine Day who gets knocked unconscious during an audition, an event that mysteriously »

6 February 2015 1:55 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“You love the music. I am the music.” Though he’s best known for portraying the man of your nightmares, prolific actor Robert Englund has played a plethora of memorable roles over his impressive career, including his turn as the titular villain in 1989’s The Phantom of the Opera. Scream Factory is bringing Dwight Little’s take of Gaston Leroux’s classic novel to Blu-ray on February 17th, but you can watch clips and the trailer from the upcoming release right now.

Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Galaxy of Terror, Freddy vs. Jason) assumes the classic role of The Phantom in this shocking, nerve-jangling retelling of Gaston Leroux’s timeless tale of music, madness and murder!

An aspiring opera singer finds herself transported back to Victorian-era London – and into the arms of a reclusive, disfigured maestro determined to make her a star. The silver-throated Christine (Jill Schoelen, The Stepfather »
