Metallica's Kirk Hammett Unveils His Massive Horror Movie Poster Collection

11 August 2017 6:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett is a huge fan of horror movies, which should come as no surprise for fans of the shredder. Hammett often plays guitars with classic horror icons painted on them including Boris Karloff as The Mummy, Bela Lugosi's Tales of the Dead, and Dracula to name a few. The guitarist has collected classic horror posters and memorabilia since 1987 and has amassed quite the collection of the past 30 years. Hammett and Salem, Massachusetts' Peabody Essex Museum have teamed up to display over 100 pieces from the guitarist's private collection to be put on display from August 12th through November 26th.

Before the museum came to safely take Hammett's art from his walls, he had the classic posters up in nearly every room of his home. The guitarist said that he would put a guitar and amplifier in each room just in case the images from the posters sparked »

The Furniture: The Night of the Hunter's American Expressionism

7 August 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

"The Furniture," by Daniel Walber, is our weekly series on Production Design. You can click on the images to see them in magnified detail.

Charles Laughton’s The Night of the Hunter is an American classic. But it is also a clear descendant of a movement from across the Atlantic: German Expressionism. This comes through most clearly in the breathtaking work of cinematographer Stanley Cortez (The Magnificent Ambersons).

Yet while The Night of the Hunter’s visual language is clearly indebted to the German films of the 1920s, its sets are far cry from the angular nightmares of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and its siblings. Instead, the work of art director Hilyard M. Brown and set decorator Alfred E. Spencer is grounded in iconic American architecture. Through the intimate collaboration of production design and cinematographer, an Expressionist battle between good and evil unfolds through the aesthetic material of American life. »

Kayti Burt Jul 24, 2017

Den of Geek Us talked to Peter Capaldi about the episode he thinks first defined his Doctor...

Peter Capaldi will end his tenure as the Twelfth Doctor on Doctor Who in the 2017 Christmas Special. Capaldi just finished filming the episode, which means at least the production part of the Doctor Who experience is now behind him.

Looking back on his three-season run as the Doctor, which episode does Capaldi see as the one that most defined his Doctor? Den of Geek Us was part of a group of reporters at San Diego Comic Con today who were given Capaldi's answer...

I think Listen, in the first season because it’s the first time we clearly see this kind of obsessive quality about him. Because, in that episode, he has a compulsion that there’s a creature that exists that you can’t see, »

NYC Weekend Watch: Marcello Mastroianni, The Caan Film Festival, Terry Zwigoff, Immigrants on Film & More

18 May 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Film Society of Lincoln Center

“Il Bello Marcello” highlights Italy’s greatest actor and, in turn, its greatest filmmakers.

Stalker continues its run.

Museum of the Moving Image

The Caan Film Festival is underway! Films from Michael Mann, Coppola, Hawks, and more kick it off.

The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari plays on Sunday.

Starring: Matt Dillon, Mickey Rourke, Diane Lane.

Cinematography: Stephen Burum

Film Editor: Barry Malkin

Written by S.E. Hinton and Francis Ford Coppola

Produced by Francis Ford Coppola

Directed by Francis Ford Coppola

 

Rumble Fish, Francis Ford Coppola’s Young Adult tone poem, unspools in a black and white never-never land of sullen teens, pool tables and pompadours. It may take a moment for the audience to suss out that we’re not in the Eisenhower era with Chuck Berry, Marilyn Monroe and the Cold War but squarely in Reagan’s domain of MTV, Madonna and the Cold War.

Set in a destitute Oklahoma town with the ghost of The Last Picture Show whistling through its empty streets, Matt Dillon plays Rusty, an inveterate gang-banger growing up in the shadow of his older brother played by Mickey Rourke, a reformed juvenile »

The Vampire Bat

31 March 2017 8:22 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

 

Another impressive horror restoration! Majestic Pictures pulls together a great cast, including Fay Wray and Lionel Atwill, for a smart gothic horror outing complete with squeaky bats, a flipped-out village idiot (Dwight Frye!), a crazed mad scientist (the worst kind) and a lynch mob with torches that have been hand-tinted in color. Melvyn Douglas is the debonair flatfoot assigned to solve a series of vampire killings.

16 Movies With 100-Percent Fresh Ratings on Rotten Tomatoes (Photos)

28 February 2017 11:19 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It’s a badge of honor for movies: Rotten Tomatoes’ 100-Percent Fresh rating. A movie that wins it needs to garner only positive reviews from the aggregate site, and that’s no easy thing to accomplish. Even some of the best movies in history don’t have a 100-percent rating. Here are 17 that do, with a few that might be unexpected. “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” (1920) A silent, creepy German horror film, “Dr. Caligari” is full of strange expressionist imagery. The story of a hypnotist who uses his gift to force a man to commit murders is considered a classic. »

White Zombie Starring Bela Lugosi Screens at Schlafly Bottleworks February 2nd

26 January 2017 8:23 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“I kissed her as she lay there in the coffin; and her lips were cold.”

White Zombie (1932) Starring Bela Lugosi  screens Thursday February 2nd at 7:00pm at Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest Avenue Maplewood, Mo 63143). 

Now I know where Eddie Munster got his widow’s peak! He must have watched White Zombie as a toddler and decided to emulate his Uncle Dracula who remained behind in Transylvania while Grandpa, Herman and Lily moved to America. Actually, Bela Lugosi isn’t Dracula in the 1932 chiller White Zombie, but he might as well be. He’s a voodoo master who has taken his enemies lives over, turned them into zombies and made them his slaves. When he is contacted by a man who is coveting somebody else’s wife, Lugosi simply turns her (Madge Bellamy) into one of the living dead by waving her scarf over an open flame. She keels over, is »
