Final Wave of Fantastic Fest 2012 is Unleashed

12 September 2012 12:06 PM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Wow! I literally just jumped up for joy hearing this final wave. I think that this might be my favorite selection of films since I have been attending. Films like American Mary, Antiviral, Berberian Sound Studio, the remake of Who Can Kill A Child? – Come Out and Play and the World Premiere of the sequel to The Collector! These films plus a few others just caps off what I’m sure will be my favorite Fantastic Fest yet!

Also, for those keeping score, Michael picked 7 movies that are definitely showing while I picked 6. However, this could change once the secret screenings show. Again, Fantastic Fest starts next Thursday and we plan to have reviews, interviews and possibly video & audio blogs. Anyway, here’s the announcement:

Watch: New Documentary Follows a Real-Life, Vatican-Approved Exorcist

5 April 2012 1:15 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

  Fredrik Horn Akselsen's new movie has been Vatican tested and approved. No, really. It has. The Norwegian filmmaker follows real-life, church appointed exorcist José Antonio Fortea for his creepy documentary The Exorcist of the 21st Century. The devil has always been a hot commodity in horror, and Akselsen's film feeds our ongoing obsession with the devil. It's a known fact that the Catholic Church has — and sometimes still does — perform exorcisms. They were a popular occurrence throughout the 20th century — particularly during the '60s and '70s. Was it simply due to the social/political/economic unrest during that time, or is Satan the real deal? Who the heck knows —  but we're interested to see what Fortea has...

Okay, so this has nothing to do with either Daffy Duck or Loony Tunes. That headline was a momentary bit of madness that has us grinning from ear-to-ear. What we have here, kids, is a new documentary detailing the fight against Big Red!

While films such as the recent The Devil Inside love to bandy the 'Based On A True Story' label around for a bit of added punch in their marketing regardless of whether it's actually true or not the fact is that while Hollywood has a long history of playing at demons there are those who believe very much in their reality.Meet José Antonio Fortea - an actual, no joke, Vatican approved exorcist.

Rest in Peace: Lina Romay

24 February 2012 12:37 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Fans of Jess Franco and exploitation cinema today are mourning the tragic loss of one of the biggest stars in her industry and sub-genre, the all too young Lina Romay.

As reported by Video Watchblog, the news emerged today from Spain, where actor Antonio Mayans formally announced Romay's death last week, on February 15th at the age of 57 due to a lost bout with cancer.

One look at her IMDb page and you'll see that Lina amassed quite a body of work to go along with her quite beautiful body. Dubbed Franco's muse, Romay burst onto the genre scene with 1972's The Erotic Rights of Frankenstein and is best known for films such as Female Vampire, The Sinister Eyes of Dr. Orloff, The Mystery of the Red Castle, Erotic Kill, and many, many more. In the Eighties Romay moved from the front of the screen to behind-the-camera as a director of a dozen different films. »

Lina Romay – Cult Horror Actress Dead at 57

23 February 2012 6:27 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I first discovered the captivating allure of Lina Romay 30 years ago in the early days of VHS when I rented a tape called The Loves Of Irena on the old Private Screenings label. It was Spanish director Jess Franco’s erotic 1973 twist on the vampire legend also known as (among other titles) Female Vampire, The Bare Breasted Countess, and Erotikill. Romay spends most of her screen time almost completely nude, strolling about in the fog wearing nothing but a cape and big wide black boots and I was immediately smitten. I sought out more films with the actress and found out she was Franco’s common-law wife and would perform in over 100 films from the prolific cult director including such gems as Barbed Wire Dolls, Jack The Ripper, and Wanda The Wicked Warden (with Dyanne Thorne, it was later retitled and sold as an Ilsa sequel). Romay and Franco had »

My Three Favorite Moments in Hitchcock's 'Spellbound'

9 February 2012 9:47 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I hadn't seen Alfred Hitchcock's 1945 feature Spellbound until it arrived on Blu-ray and I can understand why it isn't one of the first films people talk about when they are listing off their favorite films from the master of suspense. Story wise, the film did little for me, but a lot of that is owed to the fact I am only seeing it for the first time now and so many films since have aped the idea of a psychiatrist falling for their potentially dangerous patient. It's not the film's fault I've seen so many other films explore this premise in my life since Spellbound first hit theaters over 65 years ago. That's just unfortunate timing due to what may be considered a late birth. However, that isn't to say Spellbound is a dud, not by any measure. In fact, I came away with three specific moments that truly impressed »
