Beauty vs Beast: Shadow of the Auteur

28 December 2015 11:45 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Ja from Mnpp here christening 2015's final episode of "Beauty vs Beast" with one of my favorite movies of ever, which is celebrating it's 15th anniversary this week - E. Elias Merhige's Shadow of the Vampire, which fictionalized the filming of F.W. Murnau's Nosferatu by adding in some actual behind-the-scenes bloodsucking, was released on December 29th, 2000 -- I have strangely fixed memories of seeing this film for the first time, from the dreamy Art Deco opening credits on down; anyway it left a mark, so don't ask me what the hell happened to Merhige after this. He's only made one more feature-length film since, the 2004 serial killer thriller Suspect Zero with Ben Kingsley.

As for Shadow of the Vampire it didn't do great box-office-wise but it did manage to score two Oscar nominations - one for Make-Up and a much-deserved Best Supporting Actor nomination for Willem Dafoe, playing »

Academy Awards Film Series: 'Neverland' Found, Genuine Drama Lost

22 December 2015 4:51 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Finding Neverland' movie: Johnny Depp as James M. Barrie, with the Llewelyn Davies family: Kate Winslet, Freddie Highmore, Joe Prospero, Nick Roud and Luke Spill. 'Finding Neverland' movie review: Losing reality Back in 2001, German-born director Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace, World War Z) brought a much welcome non-Hollywood touch to the independently made psychological drama Monster's Ball. Besides the daring (if way overlong) sex scenes, that film imparted a refreshingly realistic atmosphere that was much enhanced by Forster's minimalist approach. As the title implies, his follow-up effort, Finding Neverland (2004), has absolutely nothing to do with reality, whether Peter Pan author James M. Barrie's or anyone else's. Even so, Forster's early, no-nonsense directorial touch is sorely missing from what is little more than your usual big-studio holiday movie whose “magical moments” might as well have been created by a computer.

Joshua Reviews F.W. Murnau’s Tabu: A Story Of The South Seas [Blu-ray Review]

16 December 2015 10:00 AM, PST | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

By 1931, nearly the entirety of the film industry had not only gained the capabilities to make sound pictures, but appeared to leave silent cinema completely behind. Save for a few iconic artists like Charlie Chaplin, who stuck with silent cinema aesthetics for quite some time after the growth of sound in cinema, the medium had all but shifted into both sound storytelling, and the stationary camera that it would need.

And then there is Tabu. From not only one, but two of those iconic artists mentioned in the paragraph above, this brisk and powerful journey into the South Seas was created by the pair of F.W. Murnau and Nanook of the North director Robert J. Flaherty, and tells a story only these two legendary filmmakers could. Blending both Murnau’s beautiful, expressionistic filmmaking with the cultural focus that made the heart of Flaherty’s work beat, Tabu became a film »

TV Review: American Horror Story: Hotel Episode 7: “Flicker”

19 November 2015 2:27 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Writer Scott Snyder has created a name for himself in the comic book world with his Batman series and, lately, the ongoing horror comics, Wytches. Another series his fans adore is American Vampire, a genre bending reimagination of vampire folklore, mainly surrounding Skinner Sweet, a new breed of the species who leaves a mark in various stages of American history. In one of the earlier issues, he saves an aspiring actress Pearl Jones during the 1920s silent film era after she is attacked by Hollywood vampires. She becomes a vampire herself, which leads to a life of revenge.

Episode seven of American Horror Story focused its energy on The Countess (Lady Gaga) and her journey to what made her the woman she is today. The Countess, it turns out, was an extra during the 1920s in Hollywood, lusting after Rudolph Valentino (Finn Wittrock, returning as a different, yet much more »

Day of the Dead Movie List: Top 5 Most Freakish Living Dead, Undead, and Ghosts

2 November 2015 9:22 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Hell's Kitchen: Soul stew image likely from the 1922 Benjamin Christensen horror classic 'Häxan / Witchcraft Through the Ages.' Day of the Dead post: Cinema's Top Five Scariest Living Dead We should all be eternally grateful to the pagans, who had the foresight to come up with many (most?) of the overworked Western world's religious holidays. Thanks to them, besides Easter, Christmas, New Year's, and possibly Mardi Gras (a holiday in some countries), we also have Halloween, All Saints' Day, and the Day of Dead. The latter two are public holidays in a number of countries with large Catholic populations. Since today marks the end of the annual Halloween / All Saints' Day / Day of the Dead celebrations, I'm posting my revised and expanded list of the movies' Top Five Scariest Living Dead. Of course, by that I don't mean the actors listed below were dead when the movies were made. »

Kino Revives F.W. Murnau’s Horror Expressionist Masterpiece Faust To Blu-ray!

30 October 2015 10:08 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Legendary filmmaker F.W. Murnau’s silent film mastepiece Faust is making it’s High Definition debut thanks to Kino Classics! Having released Murnau’s unforgettable horror classic Nosferatu two years ago as a lavish edition, Kino has restored the striking German Expressionist film from a archival 35mm elements, which is fancy for saying the transfer should look quite incredible. Also included is an alternate version of the film from 1930, which should serve as a nice curiosity for Faust fans. Hopefully this is a sign that another silent great The Last Laugh isn’t far off from a Blu-ray bow.

Faust streets from Kino Classics on DVD and Blu-ray, November 17th!

Special Features:

Piano score by Javier Pérez de Azpeitia,adapted from the 1926 orchestral arrangement by Paul Hensel Orchestral score by The Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra, compiled from historic photoplay music The Language of Shadows: Faust, a 53-minute documentary »

200 Greatest Horror Films (40-31)

29 October 2015 7:19 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Special Mention: The Most Dangerous Game

Directed by Irving Pichel and Ernest B. Schoedsack

Written by James Creelman

USA, 1932

Genre: Survival Horror

The first of many official and unofficial screen versions of Richard Connell’s short story of the same name, The Most Dangerous Game was made in 1932, in the era known as “Pre-Code Hollywood,” a time when filmmakers were able to get away with sexual innuendo, illegal drug use, adultery, abortion, intense violence, homosexuality, and much more. It was during this time that a film like The Most Dangerous Game was allowed to be made and shown to the general public without fear of censorship. The film was put together by producer Willis O’Brien while in pre-production on King Kong, and features several of the same cast and crew members, as well as props and sets from Kong. Despite these obvious cost-cutting measures, Dangerous Game never feels like a second-rate production, »

200 Greatest Horror Films (90-81)

26 October 2015 5:47 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Special mention: Häxan

Directed by Benjamin Christensen

Denmark / Sweden, 1922

Genre: Documentary

Häxan (a.k.a The Witches or Witchcraft Through The Ages) is a 1922 silent documentary about the history of witchcraft, told in a variety of styles, from illustrated slideshows to dramatized reenactments of alleged real-life events. Written and directed by Benjamin Christensen, and based partly on Christensen’s study of the Malleus Maleficarum, Häxan is a fine examination of how superstition and the misunderstanding of mental illness could lead to the hysteria of the witch-hunts. At the time, it was the most expensive Scandinavian film ever made, costing nearly 2 million Swedish krona. Although it won acclaim in Denmark and Sweden, the film was banned in the United States and heavily censored in other countries for what were considered, at that time, graphic depictions of torture, nudity, and sexual perversion. Depending on which version you’re watching, the commentary is »

The Definitive Foreign Language Horror Films: 10-1

23 October 2015 7:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Here we are at what is a surprisingly modern list. At the beginning of this, I didn’t expect to see so much cultural impact coming from films so recently made, but that’s the way it goes. The films that define the horror genre aren’t necessarily the scariest or the most expensive or even the best. The films that define the genre point to a movement – movies that changed the game and influenced all the films after it. Movies that transcend the horror genre. Movies that broke the mold and changed the way horror can be created.

10. El laberinto del fauno (2006)

English Language Title: Pan’s Labyrinth

Directed by: Gullermo del Toro

It’s more a dark fantasy film than a horror film, but it would be tough to make a list of 50 of those. Plus, it has enough graphic, nightmarish images to push it over the threshold. »

The Conversation: Drew Morton and Landon Palmer Discuss ‘Dracula: Pages from a Virgin’s Diary’

20 October 2015 8:19 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Conversation is a feature at PopOptiq bringing together Drew Morton and Landon Palmer in a passionate debate about cinema new and old. For their tenth piece, they discuss Guy Maddin’s fusion of silent-era horror and dance, Dracula: Pages from a Virgin’s Diary (2002).

Drew’S Take

Every autumn, I treat Halloween the way some Midwestern moms obsess over Thanksgiving or Christmas. Horror novels (last year, I finally read Joe Hill’s Heart-Shaped Box and loved it), true crime documentaries, and an abundance of films make up the majority of my media diet for about six weeks. Over the past week, I’ve been re-reading Bram Stoker’s Dracula and re-watching the glut of adaptations out there. I think I’ve finally dialed in my three favorite translations…in no particular ranking! Obviously, F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu (1922) has a certain advantage from being the “first,” but it has »

” Is this your wife? What a lovely throat!”

There’s nothing better than silent films accompanied by live music and I’d go as far as saying there’s nothing better than silent films accompanied by the Rats and People Motion Picture Orchestra. And I’ll go even farther by saying that there’s nothing better than the 1922 silent spooker Nosferatu accompanied by the Rats and People Motion Picture Orchestra which is an event that will be taking place Wednesday night, October 28th at Urban Chestnut Brewing Company’s Midtown Brewery & Biergarten (3229 Washington Ave, St. Louis 63103). Doors open at 6pm and the movie unspools after dark!

Blu-ray Review: Children Of The Night Comes Calling From Artsploitation Films

18 October 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Of all the monsters in the long history of cinema, no creature has been explored more often or in more detail than the vampire. From his cinematic genesis as a hideous rat-like creature in F.W. Murnau's Nosferatu to his numerous escapades as a romantic from Lugosi forward, the vampire has been explored from nearly every angle possible. As a result, when a film comes along with another look at the vampire myth and is touted as being new and different, I can't help but scoff a bit and prepare for disappointment. Argentinian filmmaker Ivan Noel may be a newcomer to these pages, but he's been working since 2008 and making some of Argentina's most talked about films. The fact that Children of the Night (original...

10 Commonly Overlooked Horror Films Worth Seeing

6 October 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When I was a kid, I used to love a scary movie. I remember catching the original The Haunting (1963) one night on Channel 9’s Million Dollar Movie when I was home alone. Before it was over, I had every light in the house on. When my mother got home she was screaming she’d been able to see the house glowing from two blocks away. The only thing screaming louder than her was the electricity meter.

That was something of an accomplishment, scaring me like that. Oh, it’s not that I was hard to scare (I still don’t like going down into a dark cellar). But, in those days, the movies didn’t have much to scare you with. Back as far as the 50s, you might find your odd dismemberment and impaling, even an occasional decapitation, but, generally, the rule of the day was restraint. Even those rare dismemberments, »

Sandler to Have Biggest Opening Weekend of His Career with 'Hotel Transylvania 2'? Think Again.

26 September 2015 9:54 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Hotel Transylvania 2.' 'Hotel Transylvania 2' far surpasses expectations at domestic box office: Adam Sandler a hit when heard but not seen Adam Sandler has been having his share of domestic box office flops lately. Chris Columbus' Pixels, which opened in late July to scathing reviews and indifferent audiences, was the latest one: a reported $88 million production (plus marketing and distribution expenses) that earned $76.67 million in the U.S. and Canada (plus an estimated $145.1 million elsewhere). But now comes the Sony Pictures release Hotel Transylvania 2, the concisely titled sequel to the late Sept. 2012 hit Hotel Transylvania. Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, the $80-85 million-budgeted animated feature should open around $48 million from 3,754 theaters according to early weekend box office estimates found at Deadline.com. The report adds that some “rival studio box office analysts” believe Hotel Transylvania 2 may actually pass the $50 million mark. On Friday, Sept. 25, '15, it collected a better than expected (estimated) $13.5 million. »
