Help Me Figure Out These 14 'Classic Screen Types' Offered by the New York Times

9 December 2010 9:24 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The following video comes courtesy of "The New York Times" from their "Fourteen Actors Acting: A Video Gallery of Classic Screen Types" project scored by Owen Pallett and directed by Solve Sundsbo. This came online yesterday, but as I looked through the various silent performances I couldn't make out just what "classic" screen types each was mimicking. So, as everyone and their mother posted the videos yesterday I was hoping someone would shed some light on each so I could pass the information on to you, but alas, no one that I've found has mentioned a single film in relation to each performance. I didn't even notice anyone mentioning how Tilda Swinton is obviously channeling Maria Falconetti's performance from The Passion of Joan of Arc or Jennifer Lawrence's obvious Janet Leigh in Psycho impression.

I can't help but be reminded of North by Northwest from Anthony Mackie's video, »

10 Best Movie Vampires of All Time

28 October 2010 3:49 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With Halloween right around the corner and vampires being all the rage this year, is it any wonder why I have vampires on the brain? So without further ado, here is Tmp’s roster for the 10 best movie vampires of all time!

#10 - Edward Cullen and the vampires of the Twilight Saga

With Eclipse about to be released on DVD and Blu Ray, Edward Cullen and the Twilight gang just had to make the list. With their vegetarian diet and their diamond studded, dazzling-in-the-sun skin, these vampires certainly gave us a lot to talk about. Edward Cullen in particular made females swoon with delight all over the globe with his brooding good looks and his undying and fervent love for the awkward Bella Swan. Even this humble writer was not immune to his charms. Talk about a vampire dream come true.

#9 – Marlow and the vampires from 30 Days of Night

Absolutely terrifying. »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Last Saturday night's screening of F.W. Murnau's classic 1922 horror film Nosferatu may have set an attendance record for the Loew's Theatre in Jersey City, New Jersey. The legendary movie palace had been saved from destruction by dedicated volunteers and has been showing classic films again for the last decade. The day began with a well-attended screening of Son of Frankenstein, certainly among the best of the Universal horror classics. However, it was the evening screening of Nosferatu that brought out the masses. The theater management expected a good turnout but admitted they were stunned. The lines of people patiently »

Cinematical Movie Club: Nosferatu

25 October 2010 12:22 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Halloween, Columns, Horror, Cinematical

It's impossible to watch F.W. Murnau's 'Nosferatu' untainted. The 1922 classic is the fertilized, embryonic source of our modern vampires. Bram Stoker set the stage with 'Dracula,' and Murnau's cinematic creation is the sinewy strand that forced itself in to create life -- a race of cinematic bloodsuckers.

The German filmmaker set the visual menace and vampiric rules. Nosferatu is a beast who doesn't look, move or act quite human. His skin appears to be just a little bit different. His teeth are sharp and eager to pierce the skin and devour the ruby-red elixir. He sleeps in coffins, thrives at night and avoids the sun. Rats and darkness follow him, and although he is, in many ways, monstrous, there is also an eager gentleness with him, a thin tendril that links him to humanity. Nosferatu preys on humans, but »

Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror: No 7 best horror film of all time

22 October 2010 3:48 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Fw Murnau, 1922

Sex and death, those two great mainstays of the horror genre, have rarely been as poetically evoked as in Fw Murnau's silent masterpiece. If Nosferatu wasn't quite the first vampire movie, it was the first adaptation of Dracula, albeit an unofficial one; Bram Stoker's estate sued the producers and all copies of the film were ordered to be destroyed.

Fortunately for the history of cinema it was an order that could not be enforced in Germany. The film follows the story of Dracula closely, though names have been changed. The Dracula character, Graf Orlok, was played by Max Schreck as a hideous walking corpse with a bald head, pointy teeth and long fingernails; Jonathan Harker becomes Thomas Hutter, Mina Harker is Ellen, Renfield is Knock and Van Helsing becomes Professor Bulwer.

As Hutter travels to Carpathia to meet Orlok for the first time, his crossing of the »

Back to Basics with 'Dracula'

14 October 2010 10:31 PM, PDT | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

Although Dracula first came to life, if you'll excuse the phrase, in Bram Stoker's 1897 novel, it was through the 1931 Universal Studios film that he truly gained immortality. When watched now, it's slightly difficult to see what it is that caused Dracula to become arguably one of the most important movies in history. It's all a bit soapy and stagy - but with good reason. While the film was inspired by a classic piece of horror literature, it was actually based on a play.

Count Dracula has had a somewhat troubled history on film. He first appeared onscreen in 1922, but he went by the name Count Orlock. German director F. W. Murnau's Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror was an unauthorized adaptation of Stoker's book that eventually was pulled from distribution due to legal action from Stoker's estate. But when Universal production head Carl Laemmle Jr. decided to film the story, »

What Do Catherine Deneuve, Max Schreck, Robert Pattinson & Ingrid Pitt Have in Common?

11 July 2010 3:43 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Long before Robert Pattinson, Max Schreck made screaming teens scream louder What do Max Schreck, Catherine Deneuve, Lina Leandersson, and Robert Pattinson have in common? Well, for one thing, they are/were all human. Second: They are/were all actors. Third: They’ve all played movie vampires. Fourth: They’ve all been included in Mark Kermode‘s The Guardian list featuring the top ten movie vampires of all time. John Amplas (Martin), Ingrid Pitt (The Vampire Lovers), and Federico Luppi (Cronos) are also there — inevitably, so is Bela Lugosi — but missing in action are Delphine Seyrig (Daughters of Darkness), Klaus Kinski (Nosferatu), Frank Langella (Dracula), George Hamilton (Love at First Bite), and, gasp, Christopher Lee. »

The 10 best screen vampires

Mark Kermode picks film and TV's most enduring bloodsuckers

Max Schreck, Nosferatu (1922)

An unacknowledged adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula (which was banned in Britain after copyright complaints from the author's litigious widow), Fw Murnau's silent gem still startles and amazes; the sight of the vampire's shadowy hand grasping at the heart of his victim ranks among cinema's most enduring images. So convincing was Max Schreck's unearthly performance that the modern movie Shadow of the Vampire would playfully suggest that he was the real deal; a genuine vampire hiding his identity in plain sight beneath the cover of movie magic.

Federico Luppi, Cronos (1993)

Debunking that most enduring vampire cliche, Guillermo del Toro's chilling masterpiece manages utterly to desexualise its antihero's bloodlust with extraordinary results. Having availed himself of the weirdly mechanical "Cronos" device, Federico Luppi's Jesus Gris staves off death with the occasional snifter of spilled claret. A »

The James Clayton Column: Shrek - forever and ever and ever...

8 July 2010 2:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The posters for Shrek Forever After may claim that it’s The Final Chapter in the big green ogre’s story, but James isn’t convinced…

Mother of mercy! Is this the end of Shrek? Apparently so, for Shrek Forever After is the closing act of the saga. Once screenings stop we will be officially Shrekless.

The promotional posters have told us that this is the last in the cycle with big green letters - not quite as big as those that proclaim it’s in 3D - that say The Final Chapter. Barring an epilogue or an appendix that means The End, The Conclusion, The Grand Finale, The bit where Porky Pig pops up and says “Th-th-th-th-th-that’s all folks!”

In Japan they’ve dubbed it Sayonara Shrek (I think that means 'Good Bye Shrek'). In Denmark it’s been christened Shreksen: Tak Og God Nat ('Shrek: »

Tma’s 25 Greatest Horror Movies of All Time

24 May 2010 10:59 PM, PDT | The Moving Arts Journal | See recent The Moving Arts Journal news »

As usual, distilling the value of a film into a short paragraph in ranking it against every other film ever released in the same genre is imperfect, subjective and quite frankly, irrational. But it sure is fun. So continuing our “Tma’s Greatest” series that began with our Tma’s 25 Greatest Sports Movies of All Time, we decided to make a list of the 25 best horror movies ever made.  But before you proceed to the list and get bent out of shape because your favorite movie didn’t make the list, remember this: we specifically decided to make a list of the “greatest” as opposed to the “scariest” horror movies because scary doesn’t always indicate the quality of a film, and vice versa.  Also, as thorough and meticulous as we were in constructing the list, there are bound to be omissions.  Feel free to let us know what we missed. »

Behind the scenes on the Twilight saga

20 May 2010 11:55 AM, PDT | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Since the release of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight novel in 2005, a huge fanbase has followed Bella Swan falling in love with 104-year-old enigmatic vampire Edward Cullen.

on what is undoubtedly one of the world's most celebrated phenomena since Harry Potter.

“Nosferatu” reimagined again with new soundtrack

1 April 2010 8:04 AM, PDT | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

In a time of horror remakes with little respect for their original material, it’s good to see someone trying to pay proper homage to a classic fright film. F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu: A Symphony Of Horrors is one of the most acclaimed genre movies of all time—so revered that many admirers have applied their own soundtracks to the silent landmark. The newest attempt comes from HobGoblin, whose founder­­­ Strephon Tayler formed the group (whose name is a nod to trailblazing horror composers Goblin) to craft a modern score for the timeless vampire tale. »

Love the 1922 silent film Nosferatu directed by F.W. Murnau? Well, you’re going to love it a whole lot more with a new, live modern soundtrack performed by the Evolution Control Committee. But, here’s the real gimmick: The new soundtrack is composed entirely of soundtracks from other movies that Ecc will DJ live as the film unspools.

Culling snippets from The Sound of Music, Jaws, Dr. No, Star Wars, Eraserhead and dozens more, the Ecc spin the vinyl soundtracks into one amazingly unified score. To witness a sample of this amazing process, check out the video below.

And, in addition to Nosferatu, there will be a screening of the documentary Copyright Criminals directed by Kembrew McLeod and Ben Franzen, which examines the history, controversy and ongoing debate over music sampling. Featured in the doc are Public Enemy, »

Werner Herzog Reflects On Nosferatu, The Vampyre

22 March 2010 12:08 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Few filmmakers — past or present, alive or dead — can boast a filmography as vast and as varied as that of Werner Herzog. Acclaimed as a filmmaker, famed as an eccentric personality and veted as one of cinema’s true artists, Herzog is truly a singular voice in film.

This past Saturday, the Egyptian Theatre was the fortunate host to guest Werner Herzog, as he presented a double feature of two of his more popular films, 1979’s Nosferatu, The Vampyre (known as Nosferatu, Phantom Der Nacht, or Nosferatu, Phantom of the Night in its native Germany) along with 1987’s Cobra Verde.

Readers of FM likely need no introduction to either Nosferatu or its titular character. Herzog’s film is of course a remake of the 1922 silent classic directed by F.W. Murnau and starring Max Schreck as cinema’s first classic vampire. An unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s immortal Dracula (published »

Nosferatu Creeps and Logan Runs to the Egyptian in March!

11 March 2010 3:51 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

This March, the American Cinematheque will play host to two programmes that will send a succulent shiver down the spine of any buff of classic horror and science fiction.

On Saturday, March 20th, the Egyptian theatre presents Encounters at the Edge of Sanity: A Tribute to Werner Herzog, and welcomes legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog, for a live discussion between his seminal films Nosferatu the Vampyre and Cobra Verde, both starring Herzog’s favorite collaborator, the genius actor Klaus Kinski.

Nosferatu, of course, needs no introduction to monster maniacs. Citing F.W. Murnau’s milestone 1922 (unauthorized) Dracula-adaptation Nosferatu, A Symphony of Horror- featuring the immortal performance of Max Schreck as the vampire Orlock – as the best film ever made in Germany, Herzog, already a lauded writer/director himself, remade the film in 1979 as an homage to the work that inspired him so, and that had defined German cinema of the time. »

Desert Island Monster Movies

By George D. Allen

Recently, I wrote an article for the Movies Unlimited home blog, MovieFanFare, offering my quickly selected picks for 10 “desert island” movies, those films which, were I forced to choose, I felt (in those moments writing the article, anyway) I would be carting along with me to enjoy during my eternal vacation/banishment on said remote locale.

Now, monsterfans, wipe those memories of Stephen King’s gruesome short story “Survivor Type” from your mind and assume all of your other creature comforts are as normal as they could possibly be (so that you don’t have to worry about minor concerns like hacking off your own body parts for food!), and pick those 10 masterworks of the horror genre you’re going to be forced to live with for the rest of your days. I completed my own “Rorschach test” in this regard below. It was tough. I »

A foxy Oscar hopeful is too clever by half in a week that also offers some terrific twisty horror and a strangely anaemic vampire outing

A few years ago, animation fans became (justifiably) alarmed by the ubiquity of CG "digimation", which seemed to be devouring all in its path. Tales of Hollywood studio bosses walking through their animation departments and "switching off the light boxes" seemed like harbingers of a dismally monotheistic future. Yet against the odds the future looks bright; not only has digital king John Lasseter been a flag-waver for Japan's Ghibli studios (Hayao Miyazaki owes him much) and Disney's artistic heritage, we now have an Oscar race that pitches 3D digital animation against "old-fashioned' 2D hand-drawn and even diehard stop-motion animation. While the stereoscopically modern Up will surely triumph over the quaintly archaic Princess and the Frog in the main animation category, it's odds-on for Aardman's equally »
