Review: Nightbreed: The Director’s Cut

1 hour ago

Anyone with an interest in watching Clive Barker’s director’s cut of Nightbreed should most likely be familiar enough with the troubled production history and the Cabal cut that was making the festival rounds a couple of years ago. What makes this the definitive version of Barker’s ambitious dark fantasy is how this manages to expand the grand mythology taken from his novel Cabal, while adding clarity to Lori (Anne Bobby) and Boone’s (Craig Sheffer) relationship as the center of the story. Most importantly, the 40 minutes of new material was added in a way that actually helps the pacing and only running 18 minutes longer than the theatrical version keeps this from being a bloated experience.

Added footage of Boone and Lori together before he travels to the exotic home of the monsters, helps give their relationship a sense of purpose and Lori’s nightclub performance adds more depth to her character. »

Q&A with The Strain’s Natalie Brown

4 hours ago


Natalie Brown plays Kelly Goodweather on The Strain, a character that is much more than just the ex-wife of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather. Natalie is the latest to take part in our Q&A series and tells us all about her characters journey throughout the first season. *Spoiler Warning*

What initially drew you to the role of Kelly Goodweather? Did you know from the start that you’d become a vampire?

“What drew me to the role was the opportunity to work with Guillermo del Toro. Before my callback, I researched Kelly’s character in “The Strain” trilogy, and discovered what was in store for my character, which only made it more enticing.”

Once you got the role, did you read the novels and comic book series to get a good idea of where the story was heading? Or did you want to keep it a surprise?

“I read the first book after auditioning. »

“Crescent Bay is not the ideal place to spend one’s golden years, especially since the once-idyllic retirement community has been beset by a series of deadly animal attacks from the ominous forest surrounding it. When grizzled war veteran Ambrose McKinley (Nick Damici) is forced into moving there by his yuppie son Will (Ethan Embry), the residents immediately take offense to Ambrose’s abrasive personality. But that take-no-prisoners attitude may be just what Ambrose needs to survive as it becomes clear that the attacks are being caused by creatures that are neither animal nor man, and that the tight-knit community of Crescent Bay is hiding something truly sinister in its midst…

Preview Gallery: 20th Anniversary Retrospective Celebrating Demon Knight to be Featured in Deadly – Horror & Sci-Fi Magazine Issue #3

22 hours ago

One of my very favorite parts of this job is being able to pay tribute to movies that I grew up loving, the ones that taught me something about the genre and had a huge impact on me as a horror or cinema fan in general. One such movie is Ernest R. Dickerson’s Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight  andm with its 20th anniversary approaching, I thought the horror comedy would make for a perfect selection for my next Deadly – Horror & Sci-Fi Magazine retrospective in the upcoming November issue.

During my research on Demon Knight over the last several months, I came across some really cool production stills and the official set of lobby cards that were released in 1995. Because they’re not something easily found online, I thought it would be fun to share with our readers as I geeked out over these and think other fans of »

23 October 2014 4:52 PM, PDT

Last night, Daily Dead had the opportunity to sit down and chat one-on-one with Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor on the eve of his big screen debut in Fear Clinic, which celebrated its world premiere at the 2014 Screamfest Film Festival.

During our interview with Taylor, he discussed how fellow Slipknot band member Shawn Crahan’s (“Clown”) foray into acting for The Devil’s Carnival (a project that Taylor was also supposed to co-star in but had to bow out due to timing) added fuel to his own long-time interest in performing in front of the cameras. Taylor also chatted about his experiences working on Fear Clinic, landing a role alongside the likes of Robert Englund and Fiona Dourif and how the film had him reexamining some of his own personal fears as well.

Taylor gave us the dirt on his future plans in film, involving a brand new project that his »
