B-Sides - A Thriller Rip-Off That'll Make You Want to Get Dead

22 October 2011 12:17 PM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Sometimes imitation can lead to sincere embarrassment. I’ll let you decide if sitting through this song & dance number clearly inspired by Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” video from the 1985 TV horror musical The Midnight Hour will make you want to get dead.

It must be said that The Midnight Hour boasted quite an eclectic cast of B and C list actors, some whose careers had long since peaked and others who would go on to become better known than they were at the time they appeared in this.

LeVar Burton

Peter Deluise

Dedee Pfeiffer

Dick Van Patten

Kevin McCarthy

Kurtwood Smith

Cindy Morgan

Mark Blankfield

Wolfman Jack

Macauley Culkin

The bell of this monster’s ball was Shari Belafonte. “Get Dead” was her big musical number, and it delivered everything you could expect from a cheesy TV movie stab at recreating the aesthetics »

Okay, your interest must be piqued at this point, right? Dying to hear the list? I'll keep you in suspense no longer. Imagine I'm Michael Madsen in Reservoir Dogs and lend me your ear. (trumpet fanfare) I give you the Image Midnight Madness Series lineup:

Let's start with the heavy hitters (film descriptions from Image Entertainment):

Hellraiser (Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital; September 6th)

Vamp DVD Review

21 February 2011 6:00 AM, PST | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In an effort to get into a fraternity two friends, Keith (Chris Makepeace) and Aj (Robert Rusler) travel to the ‘wrong side of town’ to find a stripper to hire for a college party. Taking along the nerdy Duncan (Gedde Watanabe), simply because he has a car, they find that beneath the already seedy surface lies an even seedier underbelly of vampires in the After Dark strip club. The club is run by the sleazy Vic (Sandy Baron) and the star attraction is the frightening Katrina (Grace Jones).

Vamp boasts a cast of cult eighties stars, including Robert Rusler (Weird Science, Thrashin’), Chris Makepeace (Meatballs), Gedde Watanabe (Sixteen Candles) and Deedee Pfeiffer (That’s right, Michelle’s sister) and the inclusion of the iconic and extravagant Grace Jones as a key vampire/stripper also represents a pretty inspired piece of casting.

The premise is also pretty fantastic for a film of this type, »

Vamp (1986) Movie Review

3 February 2011 9:03 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Arrow Video continue to endear themselves to all fans of cult and old school horror with yet another gem of a release in the slinky form of the 80s bloodsucker “Vamp”. Infamous mainly for its starring the one and only Grace Jones, one of the most terrifying creatures every to stalk the planet, in the lead, the film is a strange and somewhat obscure, though very welcome choice for the re-release treatment. The film is definitely one to stir memories of anyone who spent many of their formative years trawling video shops for genre fun, with an awesome cast that includes Chris Makepeace (“Meatballs”), Robert Rusler (“Nightmare on Elm St 2”), Dedee Pfeiffer (“House 3: the Horror Show”) and Sandy Baron (“Leprechaun 2”), not to mention sinister character actor Billy Drago. As usual, Arrow have pulled out all the stops, with the usual gorgeous custom DVD box art and collector’s booklet, »
