Drive-In Dust Offs: Scream And Scream Again (1970)

28 May 2016 10:05 AM, PDT

Every time a hospitalized man wakes up, he’s lost another limb. Meanwhile, London police are on the hunt for a serial killer who drains the blood from his victims before dispatching their bodies. Also meanwhile (again), a Nazi-ish regime is being thwarted from an insider in an Eastern European country. Again meanwhile (and also again), I’m thoroughly confused. And you will be too! Welcome to Scream and Scream Again (1970), a joint Amicus/Aip production that’s as delightful as it is confounding.

Released in the U.K. in January 1970, and the U.S. the following month, Scream and Scream Again enjoyed box office success, bringing in over $1.2 million U.S. against a $350,000 budget. The film has enjoyed somewhat of a reappraisal over the years, with critics succumbing to its seemingly nonsensical charms. And you should too, as long as you keep a notebook and pen nearby.

Okay, it »

Back Inside Innerspace, Joe Dante’s Fantastic Voyage

27 May 2016 7:45 PM, PDT

Stop me if you’ve heard this idea for a movie: Dean Martin gets miniaturized and injected into the body of Jerry Lewis.

That’s the pitch for Joe Dante’s 1987 film Innerspace, his last collaboration with producer Steven Spielberg until making Small Soldiers for DreamWorks in 1998. Made between his contributions to the outrageous 1986 anthology comedy Amazon Women on the Moon and his darkly comic 1989 movie The ’Burbs, Innerspace could be considered Joe Dante’s most commercial film. Not only did it carry the Spielberg brand, it was also cast with big stars (Dennis Quaid, Martin Short, and Meg Ryan) and boasted impressive, state-of-the-art special effects and a high concept that was sure to bring people out to the theater. And yet, for some reason, the movie was something of a box office disappointment when it was released in the summer of 1987; though the film’s final budget is difficult to pin down, »

Exclusive Interview: Marlene Forte Talks Playing Celia on Fear The Walking Dead Season 2

27 May 2016 6:15 PM, PDT

The last two episodes of Fear The Walking Dead took viewers to the Abigail compound, a place run by Celia Flores, a woman who sees the apocalypse as a promising new phase of life. With Fear The Walking Dead now on break until August, Daily Dead had the absolute pleasure of speaking with Marlene Forte, the actress who plays Celia, about her actions in the Mid-Season 2 finale, her character’s understanding of Nick and compassion for Daniel, and the potential question mark surrounding Celia’s future. *Spoiler Warning*

Thank you for taking the time to talk with me today, and congratulations on your phenomenal performance as Celia on Fear The Walking Dead.

Marlene Forte: Thank you. It was a phenomenally written character. We don’t get too many of those for women on TV. It was a treat. It’s amazing to work with female producers like Gale Anne Hurd, »

Christopher Lombardo & Jeff Kirschner Give Their Diagnosis of Healthcare Horror Movies

27 May 2016 4:35 PM, PDT

[Guest authors Christopher Lombardo and Jeff Kirschner of Really Awful Movies share their diagnosis of healthcare horror movies with Daily Dead readers.] When the Us was overhauling its healthcare system, much to-do was made about so-called “death panels,” government committees who would decide who lives and dies based on asset allocation. As far as healthcare horrors are concerned, it turns out that playing God is very real, but luckily only in film and Sarah Palin’s fright-filled imagination. Nefarious nurses, murderous docs, and psychopathic hallway stalkers in horror movies have effectively put end-of-life issues at the forefront, but not in a way that can be reasonably debated: your life, their ending of it.

We’ve decided to weigh in on the healthcare hullabaloo by looking at fictional settings that make One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest look like the height of patient-centered thinking. So sit back and self-medicate with whatever’s in the fridge (or better still, the medicine cabinet) and take these seven healthcare horrors—but don’t call us in the morning. »

Exclusive Q&A: Michael Coast Teases What’s Ahead for Night Of The Living Dead: Revival

27 May 2016 3:28 PM, PDT

Overseeing and intertwining separate comic book stories set in the same zombified universe is no easy task, but Michael Coast has done a seamless job doing just that throughout the first four issues of all ten series of Double Take’s Night of the Living Dead: Revival. Coast is also a writer for several of the series that expand the world of George A. Romero’s classic zombie film, and with #4 issues hitting shelves on June 1st, the busy writer/editor took a quick breather from his Double Take duties to discuss zombies, humor, world building and much more in our latest Q&A feature.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Michael. One of the most entertaining characters in Double Take’s Night of the Living Dead: Revival series is little Lisa Foster, a girl with a vocabulary that would make the most hardened sailor wince. »

Q&A: Writer/Director David Farr on Working with David Morrissey & More for The Ones Below

27 May 2016 2:02 PM, PDT

New parents get potentially deadly new neighbors in The Ones Below, the feature film directorial debut of David Farr (AMC’s The Night Manager, Hanna). With The Ones Below coming out in theaters and on VOD today, we recently caught up with Farr, who discussed working with David Morrissey (The Governor on The Walking Dead), the inspiration behind his new film, and much more.

David, thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, and congratulations on your fantastic new film, The Ones Below. How did you come up with the idea for your latest movie? Is this is a story that you’ve been thinking about for a long time?

David Farr: The film was inspired by a conversation I had in 2011 with a great friend about the anxiety of parenting. I was directing him in a Harold Pinter play at the time. We both have children. »

27 May 2016 12:42 PM, PDT

Ever wonder what it would be like to be possessed by something evil? Ahead of the June 3rd premiere of Robert Kirkman’s Outcast TV series, Cinemax has released a new interactive trailer simulating the eerie experience of demonic possession.

To experience the unsettling, interactive Outcast trailer, visit:

https://www.possessionbegins.com/

“The trailer, created by Campfire, a part of SapientNitro, which can be experienced on www.PossessionBegins.com beginning May 27, uses 3D audio technology and eye-tracking software to create an immersive experience that uses viewers’ behavior – in this case, opening and closing their eyes – to explore the premise of the show and interact with the horror of Outcast firsthand. A webcam and headphones are recommended to achieve the maximum viewing experience but if a webcam isn’t available viewers will be prompted to use the space bar as a substitute.

Synopsis: Based on the Skybound/Image comic title by Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta, »

Q&A: Justin Kucsulain on Playing Ethan on The Walking Dead Season 6, Filming a Fight Scene with Andrew Lincoln

27 May 2016 11:14 AM, PDT

One of the more intense moments from The Walking Dead comic book series is Rick’s hand-to-hand fight with Hilltop resident Ethan, and for our latest Q&A feature, we caught up with Justin Kucsulain, the actor who played Ethan on Season 6 of AMC’s The Walking Dead. Kucsulain discussed filming the gritty fight scene with Andrew Lincoln, being on the set of the Hilltop, his role in Season 2 of Bloodline, and more.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Justin. When were you first inspired to become an actor and what drove you to pursue acting as a career?

Justin Kucsulain: I was first inspired to become an actor on the set of the 2013 Marvel summer blockbuster, Iron Man 3, working as a featured extra. At the time I was just a “big, fit dude” with zero craft, working strictly off of natural ability. »

Watch: The Walking Dead Spoofs The Star Wars Holiday Special for Red Nose Day

27 May 2016 8:22 AM, PDT

“Don’t you just wish you could do something… lighter?” Andrew Lincoln asks Norman Reedus during a a little downtime on The Walking Dead set. In a new NBC video celebrating Red Nose Day (which took place on May 26th), the duo imagine what it would be like if The Walking Dead spoofed the opening of the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special.

Featuring Jeff Goldblum and Yvette Nicole Brown as Daryl’s family, Steven Yeun with a ventriloquist dummy named Edmund Rottington III, David Morrissey dressed up as Elvis, Dax Shepard and Chris Hardwick as Han Solo, Melissa McBride ready to do a 16-minute drum solo, and Merle’s hand as, well… Merle’s hand, the intro to The Walking Dead Red Nose Day Special teases quite possibly one of the most entertaining projects that will never get made. But you can still watch the hilarious intro below and think, »
