Catalog From The Beyond: The Ghoul (1933)
5 hours ago
Universal’s explosion of the horror genre in the 1930s gave us two legendary actors in Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff. Lugosi, who I’ve covered before in this column, was the leading-man type in that whomever he played, he was still pretty much Bela Lugosi (arguments could be made either way as to whether this was to his benefit or his detriment). Karloff, however, often had a tendency to get lost in his roles. Granted, part of this was done via the magic of FX. In movies like Frankenstein and The Mummy, Jack Pierce covered Karloff in enough prosthetics to make him unrecognizable. But credit must also be given to Karloff’s performances. Few people could pull off his take as Frankenstein’s monster where even with his face completely covered, and not a word of dialogue in script, he still managed to make this hulking monster come across as sympathetic. »

Interview: Alison Brie and Molly Shannon on Their Characters in The Little Hours
8 hours ago
Arriving in theaters in New York and Los Angeles this Friday is Jeff Baena’s oddball religious comedy (with has a hint of witchcraft to it) The Little Hours. An official selection of the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, Baena’s film is an adaptation of The Decameron, and during a recent press day for the film, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with two of the co-stars of The Little Hours, Alison Brie (Mad Men, Community) and Molly Shannon (Saturday Night Live, Never Been Kissed).
During our interview, the actresses discussed what initially drew them into working on The Little Hours, being able to collaborate with such a strong cast of females, their characters, and more.
So what was the biggest appeal for you to come into this project and work with Jeff? Was it the fact that it was an opportunity to be a part of such an unusual film? »

Science of Scares: Summer is for Sea Monsters
27 June 2017 3:46 PM, PDT
Summer is just starting and I’ve already found myself, multiple times, in natural bodies of fresh water that descended far deeper depths than I was prepared for. On one occasion, believing the riverbed to be no more than a few inches below my toes, I propelled myself down into the dark waters, stretching for the muddy bottom only to find it nowhere in reach, my lungs screaming for air. But need or air was not the only thing forcing me to the surface. The moment the riverbed was not right where I expected it, a familiar image came to my mind: that of a sea monster rapidly closing the distance between its sharp, protruding teeth and my fleshy toes. As I frantically kicked my way to the rocky shore, a slideshow of underwater monsters played in my mind, starting with the deep-lake horror movie The Quest (okay, it’s not really a horror film, »
