Grindhouse Aficionado: Issue #One

10 November 2012 12:34 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Grindhouse Aficionado… Bringing you the best of Grindhouse cinema (without the sticky floors).

This months Triple Feature: Fight For Your Life, Thriller- A Cruel Picture, and I Spit On Your Grave.

Exploitation films have been with us since cinema’s infancy. Take for example this tag line from a poster, circa 1895, that is promoting their latest “Moving Picture”.

The Wonderful Mutoscope showing

Moving Picures Photgraphed From Life

Drop nickel in slot-Keep turning crank to the right,

And you will see

How the Porto Rican Girls Entertain Uncle Sam’s Soldiers.

Flash forward eighty five years and you see this tag line on a movie poster in front of a Grindhouse on 42nd St.

This Woman Has Just Chopped, Crippled And Mutilated Four Men Beyond Recognition….

But No Jury In America Would Ever Convict Her!

I Spit On Your Grave

Aka

Day Of The Woman

The term “Grindhouse”, is possibly culled from a myriad of sources. »

So far, the good lads at SS have announced that Patricia Quinn (Rocky Horror, Lords Of Salem), Lynn Lowry (Shivers, The Crazies, Model Hunger), Ken Foree (Dawn Of The Dead), Christina Lindberg (They Call Her One Eye), director Joel M. Reed (Night Of The Zombies 2, Bloodsucking Freaks) and Gerrit Graham (Phantom Of The Paradise, Chud 2) will all attend.

Shock Stock is a small con in coming into its third year that has already garnered a reputation as a class trash act, a celebration of cult culture that has amassed a devoted cult of its own. Fangoria is proud to count itself as a sponsor.

The con runs April 12th – 14th 2013 in London, Ontario, Canada. More names to come. Stick around Fango for more details when we get them! And visit Shock Stock for more fun! »

Horror DVD/Blu-Ray News of the Week! 4/11/12

11 April 2012 8:24 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Man oh man, are we late on updating the news or what?! So rather than make with the excuses, why don’t we just get right down to it, huh? This particular post is to focus on upcoming DVD and Blu-Ray releases with clips, images, etc. So here’s the week in horror in terms of home entertainment!

The biggest news this week is the Blu-Ray release of Steven Spielberg’s classic blockbuster film Jaws which arrives August 14th! Universal Studios has unveiled the cover art (above) along with both a teaser trailer for the Blu-Ray release, as well as a great 8 minute video showing the restoration process for this particular release. Most note worthy however is that the fan-made documentary The Shark Is Still Working will finally be released as a bonus feature on this Blu-Ray. For those that have been following that project, it’s been a labor »

Taxi Driver at the Hi-Pointe Midnights this Weekend

3 April 2012 6:28 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

All the animals come out at night – whores, skunk pussies, buggers, queens, fairies, dopers, junkies, sick, venal.

The guys at Destroy the Brain.com are doing something a bit different this month with their Late Night Grindhouse midnight series at the Hi-Pointe Theater here in St. Louis. Martin Scorsese.s  Taxi Driver (1976)  is the first film they.re showing that was nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture (though Zombie should have been!) and is considered one of the greatest films of the .70s. At the same time it.s a perfect choice, the quintessential Grindhouse movie in the sense that it presents a time capsule of 42nd Street, the cultural center of America.s Grindhouse theaters throughout the .60s and .70s in Manhattan  before it was overhauled during Mayor Rudy Giuliani.s crackdown in the mid-.90s. Watch through Travis Bickle’s eyes as he cruises in his cab »
