Drive-In Dust Offs: Westworld

23 hours ago

As a kid, you can’t be picky where you find your fix of sci-fi and horror. Sometimes it’s the big screen, but often (for me, anyway) it was that living room landmark, television. I remember being seven and watching a Western where a couple of guys are on vacation at a resort where you can be a cowboy and have gunfights with androids (Sci-Fi, sweet!). And then…bad things start to happen. The androids break down, and now they’re killing the guests (ooh, Horror!). My head reeled from this magical swirl, a mesh of circuitry and chaos. Welcome to Westworld (1973), and its parent resort, Delos. Their slogan: Have we got a vacation for you.

This was a pretty good year for Sci-Fi. Soylent Green made a splash (“It’s Peeoople!!!”), the latest installment in the Apes franchise, Battle for the Planet of the Apes, and Woody Allen »

Exclusive: Philippe Mora Discusses Howling II & Working with Christopher Lee

3 July 2015 2:21 PM, PDT

I unabashedly love Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf and, on July 14, the patron saints of classic cult film- Scream Factory- are resurrecting Philippe Mora’s sequel on Blu-ray. In honor of its release, I was fortunate to be able to speak with Mora about his experiences working on the film, collaborating with both Sybil Danning and the legendary Christopher Lee, and how the latter had quite a lifetime of experiences even before he became one of the greatest actors to grace the silver screen.

Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with me, Philippe- I am a huge fan of Howling II and I even have an original one-sheet hanging in my kitchen.

Philippe Mora: Oh, thank you so much! Let me tell you how that image came about. One day we were filming a scene with Sybil who is supposed to be in »

Editorial: Sarah Connor is the Soul of the Terminator Franchise

3 July 2015 1:13 PM, PDT

[Originally appeared in the September 2014 issue of Deadly Magazine] There is a scene 75 minutes into 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day,  in which James Cameron pinpoints the humanity amidst all the time travel, liquid metal and state-of-the-art special effects. Young John Connor (Edward Furlong) is bonding with the T-800 machine assigned to protect him (Arnold Schwarzenegger), by teaching him how to high five. The moment is designed to underscore the father/son dynamic between John and the Terminator, as well as provide a visual symbol of the hope for mankind – that we are able to co-exist alongside technology. And, if we’re reading even more deeply, that we can still master it.

A great deal of Terminator 2’s running time is devoted to the connection between John and Schwarzenegger’s T-800. However, it’s telling that the most poignant shot – the one that says the most about their relationship – is from the perspective of John’s mother, Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton »

Review: Stung

1 July 2015 6:11 PM, PDT

As someone who grew up watching creature features (usually courtesy of Elvira’s Movie Macabre), I absolutely had a blast with Benni Diaz’s recent killer wasp romp, Stung. Part old-school critter camp, part new-school mentality, the horror comedy features some incredible special effects, tons of great gore and wickedly fun kills, as well as a strong script from Adam Aresty that does an excellent job balancing out the humor and horror of the situation. Stung never strays too far from its B-movie roots and perfectly celebrates everything fans enjoy about these types of films with an infectious enthusiasm.

Stung starts off rather innocently, as we follow Julia (Jessica Cook) and her co-worker Paul (Matt O’Leary) who are on their way to cater a swanky backyard party where they’re hoping to impress their upscale clientele. Everything goes as planned until a swarm of mutant killer wasps show up »
