Class of 1986: Is Stathis Borans the Real Hero of The Fly?

11 July 2016 6:18 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

I’m a huge fan of David Cronenberg’s entire career, but if there is one of his films that I continue to visit repeatedly, it’s The Fly. Between Howard Shore’s brilliant and heartbreaking score, the incredible performances from both Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis, and the amazing Oscar-winning special effects from Chris Walas that brought Brundlefly to life, The Fly is just one of those perfect movies that I enjoy rewatching and still continue to discover new things about the more I revisit it.

Like many, one of the big reasons I first fell in love with The Fly when I saw it at the drive-in as a kid back in the summer of ’86 was the infectious chemistry shared between Goldblum and Davis. Their shared passion is palpable and the way the duo (who were dating in real life at the time) influences each other throughout The Fly »

8 July 2016 4:12 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The horror genre had quite the year in 1986. Jason Voorhees climbed out of his coffin, scientist Seth Brundle tinkered with teleportation, two Tobe Hooper films were released in theaters, and Stephen King's directorial debut burned rubber on the big screen. In our new, free issue of Deadly Magazine, we revisit some of the genre's most memorable movies from that magical mid-’80s year with the people that helped make them. Welcome to the 30-year reunion for the Class of 1986.

Within the pages of this Deadly Magazine issue, you'll find retrospectives and interviews that shine spotlights on some of the most celebrated, and in some cases, underrated, films from 1986.

Scott Weinberg's interview with Barbara Crampton offers an intriguing look at the making of Stuart Gordon's other H.P. Lovecraft adaptation, From Beyond. Scott Drebit enrolls at Slaughter High to give his grade on the school-set slasher. Joseph Maddrey sits »

Drive-In Dust Offs: Humanoids From The Deep (1980)

16 April 2016 10:04 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Well, here we are again, back in Corman waters. Why do we keep coming back? What is the pull of a Roger Corman production that calls to us like a syphilitic siren wailing from the rocks, beckoning us home? My guess is quality chafing the walls of quantity. There are a lot of exploitation movies out there, and most were justified their position on the lower rung of a double bill on a Tuesday night at the drive-in. But un film du Corman is different – he’s always had an innate gift for corralling talent on the rise, and kind enough to foster it on the way down. His turn of the decade monster mash Humanoids from the Deep (1980) is a perfect storm of his wondrous cinematic sensibilities.

And of course I mean ‘wondrous’ as it applies to our station, the gloriously trashy and deliciously weird.  Humanoids fits neatly into »
