The Story Behind 'Raiders,' the Documentary About the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made

16 April 2015 4:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Over 30 years ago, a trio of 11-year-olds in Mississippi began making a shot-for-shot remake of their favorite film, "Raiders of the Lost Ark," a project that continued for seven years and resulted in an all-kid cult classic. Chris Strompolos, Eric Zala and Jayson Lamb chose a Spielberg film with impossible-to-replicate special effects and complex set pieces. For years, the boys requested only costumes and film props for birthday presents, and spent summers reenacting dangerous Indie stunts with their friends and family. Harry Knowles of Ain't It Cool News called the "Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation" a better remake than Gus Van Sant's "Psycho," because it was "made with love." Horror director Eli Roth and actor John Rhys-Davies, who starred in the original "Raiders," also praised the film, and Spielberg himself invited the boys to meet him. But the "Raiders" remake never got finished—one scene was »

Mip TV: Mena Suvari on ‘South of Hell,’ Eli Roth, Her Chameleon Nature

14 April 2015 7:53 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cannes – Conjoining the talents of the world’s two young high priests of horror, Eli Roth and Jason Blum, Mena Suvari’s psychological chiller “South of Hell,” an eight-hour original drama, initiated its sales campaign Monday at Cannes Mip TV, having wrapped production in Charlestown in January.

At Mip TV, in a pretty print dress, Suvari hardly looks as if she’s got a devil inside her. That, however is part of her interest as an actress. Suvari broke out in Sam Mendes’ Oscar winning “American Beauty” where she played the girl next door and object of a helpless Kevin Spacey’s desire.

There’s something of that dichotomy, amped up, in “South of Hell,” which is produced by Blumhouse Television and Sonar Entertainment, which also sells international.

Set in Charleston, South Carolina, “the most possessed city in the world,” according to a synopsis, “South” features Suvari in almost every »

Mip 2015: High-End Dramas Replace Reality TV

8 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In the 1990s, after “Survivor,” “Pop Idol” and “Big Brother” galvanized Europe’s TV biz, the Next Big Thing was assumed to be a juggernaut reality format.

Now, for Europe, it’s the next high-end drama. All over Europe, as Cannes’ Mip TV market will underscore, pay TV operators (Canal Plus and Sky), broadcasters (Italy’s Mediaset, Spain’s Atresmedia), and some of its mightiest film-tv production companies (France’s Studiocanal, Germany’s Constantin) are either moving into English-language drama or amping up production.

Several market factors are at work. “There’s a highly competitive U.S. market for drama in premium and basic cable,” says Tim Westcott, analyst at Ihs Technology. “In international, premium pay TV operators are looking to invest in original series to protect their core business from Svod operators who are offering content more cheaply.”

The result: A near feeding frenzy for the production and acquisition of ambitious, »

Bre-x Marks the Spot: Weinsteins Mining for Stephen Gaghan’s “Gold”

30 March 2015 12:15 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The movie business has a lot in common with the speculative stock market. Those that get a piece of the action early can hope for a huge payday in the long run. The Weinsteins are building their 2016 slate, getting into the game prior to lensing with The Founder and now, Gold. Deadline reports that the Weinstein Co. won the derby over for the domestic rights to Stephen Gaghan‘s third feature film starring Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez and packaged by Teddy Schwarzman’s Black Bear Pictures (they started with Ramin Bahrani’s At Any Price and most recently preemed Eli Roth’s Knock Knock). The film would receive an assured 2500 screen release. The film which was described as a sort of The Treasure of the Sierra Madre has already been picked up in several territories and will begin lensing this June in Thailand, New York and New Mexico.

Contest: Win a Horror Marathon Pass for the 2015 Stanley Film Festival

24 March 2015 5:59 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

For decades, Estes Park, Colorado has been a destination for road-tripping horror hounds, as Stephen King was struck with the idea for The Shining while staying at the town's Stanley Hotel. But since 2013, fright fans have had another big reason to pay Estes Park and its famous hotel a visit: the Stanley Film Festival.

After screening feature films both old and new and hosting special guests galore in their first two years, the Stanley Film Festival is approaching once again, and we're teaming up with the festival for live coverage and other special opportunities for Daily Dead readers.

We've been told to keep an eye out for a full list of events and screenings next week, but, until then, we're giving two lucky Daily Dead readers a pair of Horror Marathon passes for the festival.

‘Knock Knock’s’ Lorenza Izzo Signs With Paradigm (Exclusive)

20 March 2015 11:19 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fresh off Eli Roth’s Sundance premiere “Knock Knock,” an update of 1977’s “Death Game” for which she generated heat thanks to her performance as a sexual temptress-turned-home invader, sought-after Chile-born Lorenza Izzo has signed with Paradigm Talent Agency for representation.

In addition to starring in “Knock Knock,” an upcoming wide release from Lionsgate, which purchased the film at the Sundance Festival for a reported $3 million in one of the biggest deals of this year’s fest, Izzo will also be seen in the lead role, alongside Daryl Sahara and Sky Ferreira, in Roth’s awaited “Green Inferno,” an Amazon-set cannibal horror-thriller. In it, Izzo maintains much of the audience empathy as a well-meaning and plucky student activist who keeps her cool when captured by the same natives she’s come to protect.

Izzo recently starred opposite Haley Joel Osment in the romantic comedy “Sex Ed.” Prior to that, she »

Jim Carrey, Keanu Reeves teaming up with 'Girl Walks Home Alone at Night' director

19 March 2015 10:24 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jim Carrey and Keanu Reeves have both dipped their toes into the indie world throughout their careers, but it's been quite awhile since they were involved with a project that has as much advance buzz as "The Bad Batch" does. The Annapurna Pictures and Vice project is acclaimed filmmaker Ana Lily Amirpour's follow up to "A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night" and is described as a dystopian love story set in Texas.  According to Deadline, while Diego Luna and Suki Waterhouse ("Insurgent") are on board as the film's leads, Carrey is set to play The Hermit, Reeves will portray The Dream and Jason Momoa will bring someone called Miami Man to life.  Extrapolate from those character names what you can. Production on the project will begin next month in Texas with Annapurna taking bids for global rights at the Cannes Film Festival.  And, yes, that sort of timeline »

19 March 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Grindhouse Releasing, the U.S. independent home entertainment distributors, has announced the release of a deluxe, uncut Blu-ray for Cannibal Ferox, directed by Umberto Lenzi.

Released in 1981, the film was banned in the UK in the early 1980s and added to the infamous Video Nasties list under the Obscene Publications Act, and still remains cut by six minutes on these shores.

Pre-order Cannibal Ferox On Blu-ray Here

The original uncensored, unrated director’s cut of one of the most notorious and violent films of all time. Banned in 31 countries, Cannibal Ferox assaults your senses as a group of Americans lost in the jungles of Amazonia experience brutal retribution at the hands of blood-crazed cannibals. Shot on location in the savage Amazon wilds of South America, Cannibal Ferox is one of the most violent and shocking films ever made. There are at least two dozen scenes of barbaric torture and sadistic cruelty graphically shown. »

Cannibal Ferox Blu-ray Special Features Revealed by Grindhouse Releasing

18 March 2015 3:59 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Gloria doesn't believe cannibalism exists, but that notion is ripped to shreds when she and her companions are targeted as meals for a rain forest tribe that's been pushed over the edge. Serving as an inspiration for Eli Roth's The Green Inferno and still leaving viewers feeling queasy nearly 34 years after its initial release, Umberto Lenzi's 1981 Italian exploitation horror film, Cannibal Ferox, was once banned in 31 countries but has received more love over the years as more and more people have discovered its palpable practical effects and uncompromising storytelling.

Having released Ruggero Deodato's Cannibal Holocaust on Blu-ray this past summer, the folks at Grindhouse Releasing are bringing Cannibal Ferox to Blu-ray with a new 2k transfer and a slew of special features, including never-before-seen deleted scenes, an abundance of cast and crew interviews, audio commentary by director Umberto Lenzi and star John Morghen, a new feature-length documentary on Italian cannibal cinema, »
