Today is Boris Karloff’s Birthday – Here Are His Ten Best Films

23 November 2015 5:53 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, and Tom Stockman

No other actor in the long history of horror has been so closely identified with the genre as Boris Karloff, yet he was as famous for his gentle heart and kindness as he was for his screen persona. William Henry Pratt was born on November 23, 1887, in Camberwell, London, England. He studied at London University in anticipation of a diplomatic career; however, he moved to Canada in 1909 and joined a theater company where he was bit by the acting bug. It was there that he adopted the stage name of “Boris Karloff.” He toured back and forth across the USA for over ten years in a variety of low-budget Theater shows and eventually ended up in Hollywood. Needing cash to support himself, Karloff landed roles in silent films making his on-screen debut in Chapter 2 of the 1919 serial The Masked Rider.  His big »

My Vision for Spider-Man's Future in Film!

15 November 2015 8:37 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Okay, let's just pretend that the Marvel Cinematic Universe never got Spidey back and never made a shitty version of him played by Tom Holland! We would all have an exciting Amazing Spider-man Cinematic Universe courtesy of Sony. However, dis shit is happening and my life started to fall apart. But, what if the McU is done after Infinity War? Why not give the full rights back to Columbia Pictures? That way, they have plans for a cinematic universe again! If so, I would be their creative consultant and I would play an anti-hero version of Morbius the Living Vampire! Here's the rundown of my vision for the future of Spidey in film:     Phase 1   Spider-man (May 2030)   The Sinister Six (March 2031)   Spider-man II (May 2032)   The Black Cat (July 2032)   Spider-man III (July 2033)   Venom: Rise Of Carnage (May 2034)   Morbius: The Living Vampire (August 2034)   Spider-man And His Amazing Friends (May 2035)     Phase 2   Spider-man IV (May »

Edgar Allan Poe’s Black Cats: Two Adaptations by Sergio Martino & Lucio Fulci | Blu-ray Review

27 October 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Throughout the history of cinema there are countless adaptations of Edgar Allan Poe’s work, from D. W. Griffith’s early take on The Sealed Room through Roger Corman’s series of lo-fi refittings of the 60s up to last year’s attempt to adapt The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether in Stonehearst Asylum. Looking back at two loose Italian adaptations of Poe’s classic horror short The Black Cat, Arrow’s new Edgar Allan Poe’s Black Cats set sees a towering duo of giallo cinema auteurs picking and choosing their favorite elements of the original tale and molding them to their supernatural, blade-wielding will with blood-spilling glee and cinematic aplomb.

Released in 1972 on the tail end of a trio of more classically typified gialli in The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh, The Case of the Scorpion’s Tail and All the Colors of the Dark, Sergio Martino »

13 New Releases to Watch at Home This Week

27 October 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! If you see something you like, click on the title to buy it from Amazon. Edgar Allan Poe’s Black Cats (Arrow Video) In Your Vice Is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key, an uninspired writer living a life of lazy cruelty becomes the main suspect in a series of murders, but is he the killer or just an abusive prick? In The Black Cat, the residents of small rural town begin falling prey to a series of not-so accidental deaths. Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Black Cat” has been the basis of numerous adaptations, some more literal than others, but this pairing offers an Italian perspective from two of the country’s genre masters, Sergio Martino and Lucio Fulci. Martino’s works Poe’s tale into a giallo complete with a shadowy killer, vicious murders, and a sexualized environment, and »

Blu-ray Review: 'Poe's Black Cats'

24 October 2015 2:52 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ Edgar Allan Poe's famous short story The Black Cat has been adapted in almost every era of cinema, from Universal's two classic offerings 'suggested' by Poe's tale to Roger Corman's Tales of Terror (1962) and Dario Argento's 1990 version, starring Harvey Keitel. What links these films is not so much their source material but their shared lack of fidelity to the text, twisting Poe's work into narratives that bear little or no resemblance to the short story that bore them.

Pieces of Terror: Tales Of Halloween and a Look Back at Horror Anthologies

21 October 2015 5:24 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With the impossibly fun Tales of Halloween now in wide release, it seems like as good a time as any to dig deep into one of my favorite subgenres of horror: the anthology film. From Tales from the Crypt to Tales from the Darkside to Tales from the Hood, the horror anthology offers something for everyone. And apparently that something is “tales.”

In speaking with most of the directors from Tales of Halloween, there was consensus in their feelings about what makes for a great anthology film: singularity of vision and consistency of quality. Both can be difficult to achieve, as the format practically dictates that some segments be stronger than others or express a different voice. But when an anthology can achieve even one of those things, there’s the potential for real horror movie magic.

There are great anthologies made by one filmmaker, among them Mario Bava’s Black Sabbath, »

‘Edgar Allan Poe’s Black Cats’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

21 October 2015 1:03 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

When we think of classic Poe movies we tend to think back to the Roger Corman movies, though he wasn’t the only director to have adapted the writers work. Edgar Allan Poe’s Black Cats, from Arrow Video, brings together two adaptions of Poe’s classic tale, with some Italian flair.

Featuring Lucio Fulci’s The Black Cat, and Sergio Martoni’s Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key, this is an interesting take on the story with two different styles. While Fulci didn’t go too gory with this one, there are still moments, and he goes for the more fantastical side of the tale. Your Vice is a Locked Room… takes a much more sophisticated take on the story creating a macabre tale where everybody seems to be guilty and the only thing reliable is the Giallo style murders, and of course the black cat. »

Blu-ray Review – Edgar Allan Poe’s Black Cats

19 October 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Edgar Allen Poe’s Black Cats

Directed by Sergio Martino/Lucio Fulci.

Starring Edwige Fenech, Anita Strindberg, Luigi Pistilli, David Warbeck, Ivan Rassimov, Patrick Magee, Mimsy Farmer, Al Cliver and Dagmar Lassander.

Synopsis:

Box set containing two adaptations of Poe’s classic The Black Cat by directors Sergio Martino and Lucio Fulci.

Poe’s The Black Cat, like a lot of the writer’s stories, has been retold over and over in various different guises and adaptations, most notably in the 1934 Universal film starring Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi (and again by Universal in 1941 with Lugosi and Basil Rathbone), the middle section of Roger Corman’s 1962 anthology Tales of Terror and in 1990 with Dario Argento’s section of Two Evil Eyes. However, Argento wasn’t the only Italian director to have a go at it as Sergio Martino (Torso) and Lucio Fulci (Zombie Flesh Eaters) both tried their hands at adaptations, »

16 Mind-Blowing Facts About Edgar Allan Poe

17 March 2015 6:43 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

One of the most versatile and brilliant writers in history, Edgar Allan Poe was an American author who helped to influence scores of other literary greats.

Active during the 1840s and 1850s, Poe dabbled in mystery and detective writing, he helped to continue the emergence of the science-fiction genre of literature, and was part of the American Romantic Movement – even becoming the first well-known Us-born author to attempt to earn a living through his literary works alone.

Best known for his poems “The Raven”, “The Bells” and “Eldorado”, Poe also wrote several short stories, including “The Murders in the Rue Morgue”, “The Gold-Bug” and “The Black Cat”.

Interestingly though, Poe also tried his hand at other forms of literature – writing one play (“Politian”) and one completed novel (“The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket”) during his lifetime.

But aside from his brilliant works, Poe’s life itself also makes for fascinating reading. »
