Deal! Universal Classic Monsters Blu-ray Collection On Sale

8 April 2014 8:07 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This week, Amazon is offering Universal's Classic Monsters: The Essential Blu-ray Collection for only $54.49 and if you've been reading this site for over a year-and-a-half you'll know what a fan of this collection I am. Back in October 2012 I received a review copy of the set, which includes Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, The Bride of Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, Phantom of the Opera and Creature From the Black Lagoon and sought to review the three films I hadn't seen of the bunch. Those reviews can be found at the following links: The Invisible Man (read here) The Phantom of the Opera (read here) The Creature from the Black Lagoon (read here) Of those I didn't explicitly review for this set, I actually love them all. The original Wolf Man is great and Dracula is particularly creepy, but you really can't go wrong with any of them. The »

The Bride Of Frankenstein Screening at Schlafly Bottleworks April 3rd

27 March 2014 8:32 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“To a new world of gods and monsters!”

The Bride Of Frankenstein will screen at Schlafly Bottleworks Thursday, April 3rd at 7pm

Sequels have long been one of the most embarrassing products of cinema, because they tend towards repetitiveness and faddish cash-in value rather than originality and integrity. There are exceptions of course, the first and foremost being The Bride Of Frankenstein (1935)!

Frankenstein (1931) was startlingly good in a primitive way but the sequel was a sophisticated masterpiece of black comedy and the jewel in the crown of Universal’s Golden Age of Horror. It’s amazing how well The Bride Of Frankenstein works and how well it’s stood the test of time. It’s less horror and more fairy tale, but the horror is still there. And so is the humor! And so is the depth of the most famous misunderstood Monster! Impossibly, Boris Karloff expanded on the role »

The Grand Budapest Hotel review: Ralph Fiennes is laugh-out-loud funny

4 March 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Wes Anderson; Screenwriter: Wes Anderson; Starring: Ralph Fiennes, F Murray Abraham, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton; Running time: 100 mins; Certificate: 15

Writer/director Wes Anderson delivers a luxury film experience in the shape of The Grand Budapest Hotel, a feast for the eyes with a ritzy, glitzy cast and touches of comedy gold courtesy of Ralph Fiennes. Surprisingly, the erstwhile English Patient is a hoot as Gustave, the effete concierge who caters to the every whim of the rich and fabulous in a fictional Alpine state in the turbulent 1930s.

Tilda Swinton looks like the Bride of Frankenstein after a few too many lightning strikes as Madam D, the super-rich matriarch who enjoys certain 'under the counter' services at The Budapest. Clearly, Gustave is devoted to making sure his customers leave satisfied, but he is »

The Mummy Starring Boris Karloff Screening at Schlafly Bottleworks March 6th

25 February 2014 8:14 AM, PST | | See recent news »


“Anck-es-en-Amon, my love has lasted longer than the temples of our gods. No man ever suffered as I did for you”

Boris Karloff, who had a way of making evil sound so darn reasonable, played the mysterious Ardeth Bay/Imhotep in the original 1932 version of The Mummy. The movie was directed by Karl Freund  - his first directing gig after serving as cinematographer on Dracula and Metroplis. The Mummy tells what happens when ancient Egyptian priest, Imhotep, is brought back to life by a tomb-exploring archeologist. He kills the archaeologist and his crew, and runs amok in Cairo looking to reincarnate the soul of his ancient lover.

The pace of The Mummy is perfect – slow and deliberate, with rich and suggestive atmosphere, and the film provides many memorable moments. The first is the young scientist at the opening going insane in shock and horror. His reactions to the very subtle »

Diy Monster Makers: Stained Glass Horror Portraits by Joseph Olson

3 February 2014 2:00 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

The centuries-old tradition of stained glass seems like an unusual medium for depicting modern horror movie scenes until you realize just how many gothic horror classics – from Hammer vampire films to John Carpenter's The Fog – have made excellent use of the ornate multicolored windows as chilling set-pieces.   Photos: Glass By Joe   Massachusetts-based Artist Joseph Olson understands the spooky potential of this timeless art form, and combines his love of the medium with his passion for horror movies in dozens of elegant stained glass hangings and lamps depicting scenes and characters from classic horror, sci-fi and monster films.     “I suddenly got into horror movies after watching Evil Dead for the first time,” Olson writes in his website bio. “I was in college when I learned that I loved stained glass, so I tried to think of a way I could combine my love for stained glass with my love for horror movies. »

The James Clayton Column: Why, Frankenstein?

29 January 2014 3:45 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature James Clayton 31 Jan 2014 - 07:30

The arrival of I, Frankenstein leaves James pondering the enduring phenomenon of Mary Shelley's seminal creation...

"We belong dead." Frankenstein's Monster in Bride Of Frankenstein (1935).

No, friend, you don’t belong dead. The masses definitely disagree with the Monster. (Ignore the mob of parochial peasants bearing pitchforks and flaming torches, because they're only film extras and their opinion on anything doesn't matter.)

Time has proved that Frankenstein's Monster (a.k.a. The Creature) is eternally popular and ever- relevant and, thus, should never be allowed to just die.

He's easy to revive. A few zaps of electricity and some dramatic lighting and, oh God! It's alive! It's alive! He is, indeed, alive again, shaped like Aaron Eckhart and gracing the big screen now that fresh release I, Frankenstein has found its way into theatres. You needn't worry if you don't get a chance »

Weird Science: Six Frankenstein Moments On Stage And Screen

28 January 2014 4:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It was on a dreary night in January that yet another studio beheld the accomplishment of its toils with the release of I, Frankenstein, the latest film inspired by Mary Shelley’s pivotal novel, as well as Kevin Grevioux’s comic.

Monsters have always been big business in the movie industry. While Shelley may have called hers “creature” or “wretch”, calling into question its wickedness, Hollywood doesn’t always have such a sympathetic view.

So as I, Frankenstein lurches into cinemas, we decided it might be time to take stock of the highs and lows of Man’s overreaching pride, with six crazy creations from film, stage, and the small screen.

1. Frankenstein (1931)

No discussion of Frankenstein could be complete without James Whale’s renowned interpretation from 1931. Boris Karloff’s rendition of the creature is the make-up job that launched a thousand parodies, rip-offs and Halloween costumes. But it’s no wonder. »

Thomas Edison’s Frankenstein Screening in St. Louis Feb. 6th – A look Back at 1910

26 January 2014 7:53 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Frankenstein, starring Boris Karloff and directed by James Whale in 1931, is usually referred to as the ‘original’ movie version of Mary Shelly’s 1818 novel. It will be screened in its restored Blu-ray format on February 6th at Schlafly Bottleworks in St. Louis so movie buffs will have the chance to see this classic again on the big screen. But, as any real horror movie buff knows, the Karloff/Whale version of Frankenstein was not the first time Shelly’s story was filmed. Inventor Thomas Edison filmed his own take 21 years earlier. Edison’s 1910 Frankenstein only runs 14 minutes and it will be screened after the Karloff version at Schlafly on February 6th.

The story behind the first Frankenstein is a fascinating one. Thomas Edison had been the leading pioneer of the first kinetoscopes, an early motion picture viewing device, and then projected motion pictures. His Frankenstein was filmed in 1910 at Edison »

2014 Has Its Second Major Box Office Bomb: Frankenstein Reboot

26 January 2014 7:49 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

‘I, Frankenstein’ box office: Frankenstein reboot is second domestic box office bomb of 2014 (photo: buffed up, shirtless Aaron Eckhart in ‘I, Frankenstein’) Made for a reported $65 million (not including marketing and distribution expenses), the Lionsgate-distributed I, Frankenstein is surely not about to become a movie franchise. Directed by Stuart Beattie and starring Aaron Eckhart as the "I" of the title, I, Frankenstein collected a dismal $8.3 million from 2,753 North American theaters this weekend, January 24-26, 2014, according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. The weekend’s only new wide release in the United States and Canada, I, Frankenstein landed in sixth place on the domestic box office chart. I, Frankenstein, in fact, is the second major 2014 domestic box office bomb, following the $70 million-budgeted Renny Harlin-Kellan Lutz effort The Legend of Hercules, which debuted with $8.86 million at 2,104 locations a couple of weeks ago. To date, The Legend of Hercules »

Frankenstein Starring Boris Karloff Screening at Schlafly Bottleworks February 6th

22 January 2014 8:04 PM, PST | | See recent news »

“The brain you stole, Fritz. Think of it. The brain of a dead man waiting to live again in a body I made with my own hands!”

The classic and definitive monster/horror film of all time, director James Whale’s Frankenstein (1931) is the screen version of Mary Shelley’s Gothic 1818 nightmarish novel of the same name (Frankenstein; Or, The Modern Prometheus). The film was produced by Carl Laemmle Jr. for Universal Pictures, the same year that Dracula, another classic horror film, was produced within the same studio – both films helped to save the beleaguered Universal. The film’s name was derived from the mad, obsessed scientist, Dr. Henry Frankenstein (Colin Clive), who experimentally creates an artificial life – an Unnamed Monster (Boris Karloff), that ultimately terrorizes the Bavarian countryside after being mistreated by his maker’s assistant Fritz and society as a whole.

Seventy-two  years after its release, Frankenstein still leaves an impact. »

Aaron Eckhart Dishes On The Mad Doctor Of I, Frankenstein

13 January 2014 9:16 AM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

One complaint that's been resurrected again and again about the upcoming Aaron Eckhart vehicle is its title I, Frankenstein furthers a monstrous misnomer. As any fan of the James Whale-helmed classics Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein can tell you, Frankenstein is the name of the mad scientist; his creation is known in those movies as The Monster. But with the latest clip courtesy of Comic Book Movie, that misconception gets cleared up a bit as Eckhart speaks to two gloomy authority figures about the dangerous experiments of one Victor Frankenstein. Here's the official synopsis for I, Frankenstein: 200 years after his shocking creation, Dr. Frankenstein's creature, Adam, still walks the earth. But when he finds himself in the middle of a war over the fate of humanity, Adam discovers he holds the key that could destroy humankind. From the co-writer of the hit supernatural saga, Underworld, comes the action thriller I, »

Worst-Dressed Celebs At The 2014 Golden Globe Awards

The Golden Globes are one of the biggest red carpet fashion nights of the year. Television stars mingle with Hollywood royalty, mega stars accessorize with hot arm candy and some of the biggest beauties in the world make major fashion faux pas. Some of these celebrities might be taking home an award tonight, but that doesn’t stop them from being the worst dressed.

Parks and Recreation‘s Aubrey Plaza is beloved for her offbeat sense of humor, which is why it’s weird to see her in a dress that looks like a bridesmaids dress (with matching shoes!!!) that would be on the discount rack at David’s Bridal. Amber Heard proved by her Bride of Frankenstein hair and over the top posing that the only person on Earth who needs more attention than Johnny Depp is Johnny Depp’s girlfriend. And funny lady Megan Mullally »
