Victor Frankenstein Press Conference Highlights, Featuring James McAvoy & Daniel Radcliffe

23 hours ago

With Victor Frankenstein out in theaters this week, Tamika was recently invited to take part in a press conference with Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy, who talked about the new take on Mary Shelley's classic novel:

James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe on the uniqueness and trait twists of Victor and Igor in this film:

James McAvoy: Victor's always been maniacally obsessional. Way back from Mary Shelley's original. We tried to investigate that in a real kind of post-Freudian world. Not just go, "He's a bit energetic and he's a bit obsessed." Then, halfway through the book, he goes home for a vacation for a year and comes back completely healthy and sane and goes, "Oh, what, the monster's alive? Thank goodness I'm really healthy now and I can go kill it."

Whereas we tried to stay in the kind of post-Freudian world and why is he so maniacal, »

Blu-ray Review: The Larry Fessenden Collection

25 November 2015 11:03 AM, PST

If ever there was to be a Mt. Rushmore of modern horror, there’s no question that the face of Larry Fessenden would get prominent placement. One of the patron saints of indie horror, Fessenden is a true auteur and a true original whose incredible career is now being celebrated with the Scream Factory release of The Larry Fessenden Collection, containing four of his films and hours of bonus features that help illuminate just what a vital voice Fessenden has been in the genre for more than three decades. This is one of the best horror releases of the year.

Fessenden (whose Glass Eye Pix has been around since the mid-’80s, helping produce films including The House of the Devil, I Sell the Dead, Stake Land and Late Phases) has built a career on twisting and subverting the conventions of classic horror films and filtering them through his own distinctive lens. »

Review: Victor Frankenstein

25 November 2015 10:11 AM, PST

"You've heard this story before..." Those are the first words spoken by Daniel Radcliffe's disembodied voice at the start of Victor Frankenstein. This is said to remind the audience of the many film adaptations of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, at the same time implying that this version brings something new to the table. Although this iteration does breathe some much-needed freshness into this almost 200-year-old monster story, its glaring flaws keep the film from truly standing out from its predecessors.

What does stand out about this particular story is that it goes beyond Shelley's cautionary tale of what happens when you "play God," focusing more on the relationship between Victor Frankenstein (James McAvoy) and Igor (Daniel Radcliffe) than their creations. James and Daniel have an electric chemistry (no pun intended) and when the story focuses on the two of them working together, the movie truly feels compelling.
