The Chicago Critics' Top 100 Horror (or Just Plain Creepy) Films in History

13 hours ago | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Scariest movies ever made: The top 100 horror films according to the Chicago Film Critics (photo: Janet Leigh, John Gavin and Vera Miles in Alfred Hitchcock's 'Psycho') I tend to ignore lists featuring the Top 100 Movies (or Top 10 Movies or Top 20 Movies, etc.), no matter the category or criteria, because these lists are almost invariably compiled by people who know little about films beyond mainstream Hollywood stuff released in the last decade or two. But the Chicago Film Critics Association's list of the 100 Scariest Movies Ever Made, which came out in October 2006, does include several oldies — e.g., James Whale's Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein — in addition to, gasp, a handful of non-American horror films such as Dario Argento's Suspiria, Werner Herzog's Nosferatu the Vampyre, and F.W. Murnau's brilliant Dracula rip-off Nosferatu. (Check out the full list of the Chicago Film Critics' top 100 horror movies of all time. »

Et's Brooke Anderson was there as the lady's made themselves nearly unrecognizable for Friday's episode: Aisha Tyler as Frankenstein's monster, Sheryl Underwood as The Creature from the Black Lagoon, Sharon Osbourne as the Bride of Frankenstein, a pregnant Sara Gilbert as The Mummy and Julie Chen as Dracula or is it Eddie Munster?

"It's Eddie Munster I've decided," said Julie. "Which I'm fine with because he was actually a pretty little boy."

For her own personal Halloween, Julie is going with Princess Leia, but a very specific version of the iconic Star Wars character.

"Not the hot Princess Leia, the cinnamon bun Princess Leia," said Julie.

Sara had restrictions for her costume, using all non-toxic »

Halloween Fiends: Monsters then and Now-Which Are Better?

28 October 2014 9:25 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Old monsters or new? Dracula or Freddy Kruger? The Bride of Frankenstein or the Bride of Chucky? How do you like your monsters…Classic or neo-nasty contemporary?


Most people like a good horror film around Halloween. It’s the time of year for a good scare. But what kind of scare do you want…classic or modern? Do you prefer the gothic grand guignol of yesteryear or the deranged demons of today? Who’s cooler and creepier?

Just for clarity’s sake, we’ll draw the old vs. new line at 1978, with John Carpenter’s excellent Halloween being the start of the modern age of Horror. Everything before that (The B&W Universal monster films, the Hammer Studios films with Cushing and Lee, the Poe/Hawthorn adaptations with Vincent Price, etc.) are classic horror flicks.

Let’s start with the names of the monsters. In this category, you have to go with old Hollywood. »

The game took a funny turn when Fallon attempted to get Barkley to guess "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles."Let's just say it didn't go well either.Watch the clip and see who had to act out "Ice Ice Baby" ... and find out who took home the win!

Jaws and Other Horror Film Inspired Art by Ganya

21 October 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »


Jaws by Ganya is part of the Hero Complex Gallery’s Imagined Worlds 2, and you can (should) buy a print right here. But while I was investigating the piece, which is a 24” x 18” limited edition giclee print, I discovered that the Catalan artist has a whole series of horror film inspired artwork that is definitely worth checking out. The pieces are all graphite pencil on wood, and the detail work and shading is really incredible. I think Jaws is my favorite, if only because it captures one of my favorite moments in one of my favorite movies. I could never hang Nosferatu in my house because I’m pretty sure it would give me night terrors. Click here to see more.

Follow the artist on facebook, twitter, or pinterest, or if you're fluent in Catalan, check out his blog.

Judging the Year’s Scariest Movies By Their Throwback Soundtracks

17 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Horror films live and die by their scores because the music is what helps drive the story and makes us feel anxious. While the images get stuck in the front of our brains, hearing tracks like John Williams‘ theme for Jaws immediately takes us back to the fearful place the film conjured up when we first watched it. In the spirit of the season, I looked back over the horror scores released this year to see which delivered the most frightening music and soundscapes, and discovered a recurring, synth-y theme. First, a little history. Horror scores have evolved over the years, but the first true horror film score was Franz Waxman’s score for Bride of Frankenstein in 1935. In the beginning, these scores were full of rich, almost romantic orchestration that was more about the thrill than creating a sense of foreboding leading up to a jump scare. In the 1950s, James Bernard »

How 'Dracula Untold's' New Ending Could Tie Into Universal's Monster Universe

15 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in the Oct. 24 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Dracula Untold scared up a surprisingly strong opening weekend at the global box office, but is it the launch of Universal's revived monsters franchise? Depends on whom you ask. In July, the studio announced plans for an Avengers-style universe based on its collection of iconic monsters, including Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Invisible Man, Bride of Frankenstein and The Mummy. Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek) and Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious) were hired to oversee the franchise, which would relaunch with The Mummy, directed by Kurtzman for

What Hump? Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein Plays Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli!

8 October 2014 8:33 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“I am not a Frankenstein. I’m a Fronkensteen!”

Young Frankenstein plays this weekend (October 10th and 11th) at the Tivoli as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight series.

Good comedies are rare. Great ones are rarer. Great parodies are needles in the haystack, and this is it. The parody can be brilliantly funny (most are horrid), but Young Frankenstein is near perfect.

Mel Brooks hit all nails right on the head in his black & white classic from 1974. Taking its themes from the Mary Shelley novel and providing some spot-on homage/parody to the James Whale classic Bride Of Frankenstein (and plenty of references to Son Of Frankenstein as well), Young Frankenstein is a breathless laugh and a half. In a weak comedy, you have the entire cast setting up one character for the laughs. Here, you have every character providing humor in every scene. None more »

‘It’s Alive! It’s Alive!’ Why Hollywood Keeps Trying To Spark Life Into Frankenfilms

27 September 2014 6:12 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Filmmakers have been obsessed with Frankenstein since James Whale brought Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel to life and instantly gave birth to an iconic monster franchise that remains a major priority for Universal. It’s one of the most important public domain properties in fiction, but reanimating the Green Guy into a worthy anti-hero isn’t easy. Everyone from Kenneth Branagh, Robert De Niro and Aaron Eckhart have discovered you need more than neck bolts to spark a good movie. The futility hasn’t stopped Candyman and Immortal Beloved director Bernard Rose, who’s returning to horror filmmaking with his own modern take on the Frankenstein legend. He shot his in downtown Los Angeles, with Xavier Samuel, Carrie-Anne Moss, Danny Huston, and Tony Todd starring in a Frankenfilm set against the backdrop of the contemporary 3D bio-printing revolution. “They’re already 3D-printing organs, so to actually print an entire human being »

The Importance of Blondes in Classic Horror

19 September 2014 1:29 AM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

“Blondes make the best victims. They’re like virgin snow that shows up the bloody footprints.”  — Alfred Hitchcock To be a person of virtue, one must possess the characteristics of being morally just and kind-hearted.  It is rather easy to determine whether or not a person is virtuous based on interactions with them, but to be able to convey cinematically that a person is of virtue, unfortunately must be expressed through the way an actor or actress looks and acts.  In the world of the early horror films, filmmakers did not have the luxury of time to develop the personalities and back-stories of secondary characters.  Filmmakers were to generate a tale of a monster to scare the masses, and quite honestly, couldn’t be bothered finding time to explain why the damsel in distress was worth anything other than eye candy and something for a monster to desire.
