Special Features - America's Rape of Scandinavian Crime Drama

30 December 2012 11:49 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Paul Risker on America's 'rape' of the Scandinavian crime drama...

The American remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011), adapted from Steig Larsson’s first novel of his Millennium Trilogy, follows on the heels of Sweden’s 2009 adaptation and forms part of a trend that has seen a number of Scandinavian crime dramas adapted into the English language.

This year saw the release of Contraband, directed by Baltasar Kormákur, the star of the original Icelandic Reykjavík-Rotterdam, and rumors circulate of a remake of Headhunters (2012), adapted from Norwegian crime writer Jo Nesbø’s book of the same name. Meanwhile, the acclaimed Danish television phenomenon The Killing, remade for American television, is preparing for its third season, whilst the second two installments of Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, have been announced.

100 + Greatest Horror Movies (pt.3) 100-76

15 October 2012 2:29 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the month of October, Editor-in-Chief and resident Horror expert Ricky D, will be posting a list of his favorite Horror films of all time. The list will be posted in six parts. Click here to see every entry.

As with all lists, this is personal and nobody will agree with every choice – and if you do, that would be incredibly disturbing. It was almost impossible for me to rank them in order, but I tried and eventually gave up.


Special Mention: Gremlins

Directed by Joe Dante

Written by Chris Columbus

1984, USA

Gremlins gets a special mention because I’ve always considered it more of a comedy and a wholesome Christmas flick than an actual horror film. This tribute the 1950s matinee genre stands the test of time from a time when parents would take their children to family films that pushed the boundaries of the MPAA. Joe Dante is »

Movie Review: The Hands of Orlac (Austria, 1924)

10 September 2012 5:58 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

By Colleen Wanglund,

Based on Maurice Renard’s 1920 novel Les Mains d’Orlac this earliest film version directed by Robert Wiene (The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari {1920}), though technically Austrian is a superb example of German Expressionism in the silent era of film.

Paul Orlac (Conrad Veidt) is a young and gifted pianist.  Returning home from a concert, Orlac is badly injured in a train wreck.  Orlac’s devoted wife Yvonne (Alexandra Sorina) begs Dr. Serral (Hans Homma) to save the pianist’s hands.  Serral removes the hands from the corpse of a recently executed robber/murderer and replaces Orlac’s hands, which were damaged beyond repair.  Serral does not tell Orlac of the transplant surgery, but he finds out anyway. 

Orlac returns home but his demeanor has changed.  He is in despair over the state of his hands and is afraid to touch his own wife.  Over the »

Forgotten Gialli: Nosferatu Industries

29 August 2012 8:39 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The first in a short series on Italian horror-thrillers of the sixties and seventies.

Are these all true gialli, or am I stretching genre definitions to breaking point? It might be more interesting to ask, What elements must be present, in what concentration, to make a film qualify as a giallo?

...Hanno combiata faccia (1971) translates as They've Changed Their Faces. Bear that in mind.

Director Corrado Farina made short subjects for Italian television, including a couple of looks at the fumetti (comic strip) industry. His better-known feature (of the two he made in his short, almost abortive career), Baba Yaga (1973), spins off from an erotic comic series by Guido Crepax, and is a surreal, pop art fantasia involving S&M nazis and Carroll Baker

(It's worth noting in passing that Crepax's bdsm porno strip, starring a heroine based on silent star Louise Brooks, won the enthusiastic approval of Brooks herself, »

Five Absolutely Intriguing Vampire Films

6 August 2012 9:58 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

By Marcy Papandrea,

These days it seems vampire films have been over done, and we see the same thing over and over again.

Nothing seems to add anything new, nothing is intriguing anymore. However there are those hidden gems out there, ones that really add something special to the genre, and transcend it. 

I decided to list my Top 5 vampire films that are absolutely intriguing, and ones that might go under the radar.

The genre really is full of interesting things, if you know where to look of course.

I hope in providing this list, it may allow you the reader to think outside the box in terms of vampire films and it may provide you with some gems you may not have yet come across.

It took me a couple of years to finally sit down and watch Chan-wook Park’s take on the vampire story, »

Tarantino, Scorsese and Other Directors Reveal Their Top 10 Movies of All Time

6 August 2012 8:08 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

There was plenty of discussion across the movie blogosphere following last week's announcement that Vertigo had dethroned Citizen Kane as the greatest film of all time according to Sight & Sound's decennial poll. In addition to revealing the top 50 as determined by critics, they also provided a top 10 based on a separate poll for directors only. In the print version of the magazine, they have taken it a step further by reprinting some of the individual top 10 lists from the filmmakers who participated, and we now have some of them here for your perusal. Among them, we have lists from legends like Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola and Quentin Tarantino, but there are also some unexpected newcomers who took part including Richard Ayoade (Submarine), Miranda July (Me and You and Everyone We Know) and Sean Durkin (Martha Marcy May Marlene). Some of these lists aren't all that surprising (both Quentin Tarantino »

Top Ten Movies of All-Time from Scorsese, Tarantino, Coppola, Allen, Del Toro and More

6 August 2012 6:33 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last week, the recent Sight & Sound list of the top 50 movies of all-time (find it here) was released. The poll is conducted every ten years and this year's edition was made by polling 846 critics, programmers, academics and distributors. In addition to that list, however, Sight & Sound polled 358 film directors, which included Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, Francis Ford Coppola, Woody Allen and Mike Leigh. Tallying the results the directors' top ten looked like this: Tokyo Story (dir. Yasujiro Ozu) 2001: A Space Odyssey (dir. Stanley Kubrick) Citizen Kane (dir. Orson Welles) 8 1/2 (dir. Federico Fellini) Taxi Driver (dir. Martin Scorsese) Apocalypse Now (dir. Francis Ford Coppola) The Godfather (dir. Francis Ford Coppola) Vertigo (dir. AAlfred Hitchcock) Mirror (dir. Andrei Tarkovsky) Bicycle Thieves (dir. Vittoria De Sica) The problem, for me at least, is that doesn't really tell us much.

Doctor Gash's Tip of the Scalpel: Vampires!

21 June 2012 11:34 PM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

"Is this your wife? What a lovely throat." -Graf Orlock, Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror (1922) Vampires, oh how they've changed through the years. Unfortunately, it seems that somewhere along the line the vamps lost their…their Grrr!

And I'm not just talking about the Twilight vampires; although they are certainly guilty, they are just the newest non-threatening vampires. With the big finale of the Twilight saga on the horizon, we'll certainly be getting our fill of the Cullens, the Volturi and their ilk. We need to get back to the understanding of this fact…vampires eat people.

However, with the R-rated Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (review) hitting theatres, there is hope. It's time to turn the scalpel toward some impressive vamps in the past so we give a Doctor Gash Tip of the Scalpel to Vampires That Were Actually Scary.

Now, before the waves of disagreeing comments come crashing upon my shores, »

Catch the Final Performances of Nosferatu This Weekend in New Jersey

20 April 2012 11:23 PM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

New Jersey isn't just about orange people with dangerously sharp hair and cleavage you can't escape; it's also about Vampires - the kind that rip your head off with teeth or sharp nails. And an ambitious theatre troupe is proving its love for the fanged with a live performance of Nosferatu.

Based on the 1923 German Expressionist film by F.W. Murnau, writer/director Alex Dawson's stage adaptation additionally draws on Chinese shadow-play, Shakespeare, and explorer/orientalist Richard Burton's translation of Hindu vampire fables to tell the story of Count Orlock, a rat-fanged Romanian looking for love even as he brings a boatload of Black Death to a German village.

From the team that brought you A Clockwork Orange with makeup by Tom Savini alumnus Dan Diana and original music by composer Bruce Donnola, the production, which stars film actress Quinn Shephard as Ellen Hutter and Shakespearean actor Caryle Owens as the eponymous Nos, »

The Comedy Critic - Out of the Frying Pan, Into the Abyss

13 April 2012 3:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Adam Hollingworth casts a satirical eye over Werner Herzog's Into the Abyss: A Tale of Death, A Tale of Life...

Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away, there was a place called Bavaria. And in Bavaria, there was born many moons ago a strange boy called Werner Herzog.

You may ask yourself why Werner Herzog was such a strange boy. Well, there were in fact many things about little Werner that set him aside from the other boys in Bavaria. First, there was his voice: a lilting, soothing and hypnotic emitter of dulcet tones that could induce even the jolliest individual into a sudden, dreadful depression. Next, there was his mind, a mind so warped that it stretched into the darkest recesses of the mortal world…but more on this later. Finally, there were his eyes: black, soulless, vacant beady eyes that, one supposed, had »

10 Commonly Overlooked Horror Films Worth Seeing

31 March 2012 12:43 AM, 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, »

New Dracula Movie: Hammer Films

14 March 2012 6:34 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Dracula Resurrected. That would be a good title (methinks) for a new Hammer Films release starring Jean Dujardin as Count Dracula. What? Hammer and Dracula together again? Well, read on… Thanks to the success of the Daniel Radcliffe vehicle The Woman in Black, the recently resurrected Hammer Films may try its hand at another Dracula movie, says Jonathan James in The Daily Dead. During a recent interview with Hammer historian Marcus Hearn, The Daily Dead learned that Hammer is planning a Dracula movie set in the 21st century. Said Hearn: “The company’s chairman, Simon Oakes, is talking about making a new Dracula, and setting it in present-day London. It’s fun to speculate who could step into Christopher Lee’s shoes. Just last year I would probably have dismissed the idea of another Hammer Dracula as quite far-fetched, but I think the success of The Woman in Black has »
