Black Friday Holiday Horror Gift Guide

28 November 2013 11:10 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The holiday shopping season officially kicks off tonight and we know it can be difficult to find presents for horror fans that seem to have everything. To help make things easier, we’ve put together the initial list of our holiday gift suggestions, which include cannibal wine, classic horror shirts, vinyl figures and Blu-ray collections.

While a handful of these items are only available at select websites, you should be able to find some pretty good sales on other items starting tonight. Specifically, Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart will have big sales on Blu-ray/DVD titles and video games. We’d like to give Tamika Jones a big thanks for helping put this guide together.

Silence of the Lambs Wine: “The Alamo Drafthouse’s 2013 Signature Wines are an oenophilic nod to noted gourmand, wine connoisseur and psychopath Hannibal Lecter. “The Chianti Slurp” is an iconic wine in film moment, celebrated »

IMDb Names 13 Best Horror Movies / TV Episodes

30 October 2013 8:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Looking for suggestions of what to watch this Halloween night? Well, the Internet Movie Database may just have the exact recipe you're looking for to add a heaping helping of spooky to your evening!

1. Hellraiser

"Not long after the Rubik's cube was introduced to Americans came this tale of a different kind of puzzle box, the kind you really don't want to solve...or open. While the creepy Cenobites promise their victims eternity in a world of pleasure, pain and suffering, we only get see the pain and suffering part of that guarantee, underscored by the demon Pinhead's assurance that, in his words, "We'll Tear Your Soul Apaaaaart."

2. "The X-Files" episode "Home"

"There are many episodes of "The X-Files" that will keep a person up at night, but "Home" took the show's queasiness factor to new levels of ickiness by liberally playing with the horror trope of backwoods murderous maniacs. »

The Very Best Films of Vincent Price

24 October 2013 8:45 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Far too often we throw around the phrase "horror icon" or "horror legend"; however, there is no disputing the fact that Vincent Price absolutely deserves to be described with both of those handles. And today, to celebrate Scream Factory's launch of The Vincent Price Collection (review), we count down our Top 10 Vincent Price Films.

Well known to mainstream, non-horror fans as the voice in the legendary Michael Jackson song "Thriller," Vincent Price was indeed the face of horror for quite some time. He was incredibly chilling with a voice that simply oozed horror. And it's for those enviable traits, and the fact that he spent so much of his life dedicated to the horror genre, that we honor Vincent Price with his own personal Top 10 list!

He has just under 200 acting credits to his name, then over 175 more instances where he appeared as himself. Price's credits read like a »

22 Things We Learned from the ‘House of Wax’ Commentary…in 3D!

3 October 2013 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Long before Avatar and RealD broke new ground to bring a new version of 3D to movie audiences, Warner Bros. released the wildly successful major motion picture House of Wax in Polarized 3D. This helped launch the 3D craze of the 1950s, but that fad soon fizzled as the films released in this format rarely held up on their own once the gimmick wore off. Still, House of Wax has earned a long life for genre fans, shown with anaglyph prints and also flat on various home video formats. Now that 3D technology has reached home theaters, Warner Bros. has released House of Wax with its original stereoscopic presentation on 3D Blu-ray, just past the movie’s 60th anniversary. For the new Blu-ray, film historians David Del Valle and Constantine Nasr lend their voices to a technical and historical commentary, shedding some new light on the film that gave Vincent Price his first real step into the »

House Of Wax Blu-Ray Review

1 October 2013 8:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

House of Wax from 1953 has the distinction of being one of the first color 3D films released by a major studio. In the new 60th Anniversary Blu-Ray from Warner Brothers, you can watch the film in its original format; if, that is, you happen to be in possession of a 3D television and Blu-Ray player. Even without the benefit of 3D, House of Wax is a enjoyable and lurid slice of 1950s cinema, featuring Vincent Price and numerous severed heads.

Price is Professor Henry Jarrod, a brilliant wax sculptor who’s a bit too attached to some of his creations. He’s a decent person, though, right up until his wax museum partner Matthew Burke (Roy Roberts) burns down the exhibit for the insurance money, trapping Jarrod and his creations. Alive but horribly scarred, Jarrod transforms into a murderous madman. He takes his revenge on Burke and then sets about »

House of Wax 3D - Blu-ray Review

27 September 2013 6:56 AM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

“See the Chamber of Horrors and scare yourself out of a year’s growth!” The granddaddy of all 3D films makes a triumphant return and has been spruced up for new 3D setups. Just in time for Halloween! It’s telling that Martin Scorsese showed his Hugo filmmaking partners House of Wax to show how he wanted the production to handle shooting in 3D. 1890s New York: Professor Henry Jarrod (Vincent Price) sculpts history and beauty, eschewing sensationalism, into his wax figures in his small museum. He hopes that investor Sidney Wallace (Paul Cavanaugh) he is giving a tour will want to bankroll a larger venue but it will have to wait till after Wallace returns for a trip. Jarrod »

Celebrate 1953 House Of Wax Digitally Remastered Release With These Clips

26 September 2013 9:00 AM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

It never ceases to completely amaze me when a clearly awesome movie sneaks past me. I’m not sure how I survived without having seen the 1953 House of Wax, but after having watched these clips it will be a Halloween must view for me this year.

We have four clips for you here (my favorite being Unmasked) to celebrate the restored and remastered High-definition 3D Blu-ray available October 1st in honor of its 60th Birthday. Here’s the synopsis and the clips.

Professor Henry Jarrod is the owner and figure sculptor in a wax museum whose specialty is historic figures. When he and his business partner, Matthew Burke quarrel over the choice of exhibits displayed, Burke suggests it would be more profitable to burn down the museum in order to obtain the insurance money. As they fight, the museum burns and Jarrod is left for dead. It’s not until »

World 3-D Film Expo: “Creature From The Black Lagoon” & “Jaws 3-D”

10 September 2013 3:34 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

After opening day of the World 3-D Film Expo III at the Sid Grauman Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, where two diverse hits from 1953 where aired, Hondo and House Of Wax, the next day brought with it the blockbuster outing of the entire festival. Especially for monster kids.

Following The Maze and Bwana Devil, Saturday brought us Jack Arnold’s Creature From The Black Lagoon on the big screen, in 3-D, how it was intended to be seen, with star Julie Adams (aka Kay Lawrence, the luminescent bombshell in the classic white swimsuit) in attendance for a Q&A after the show. It doesn’t get much better than that.

I was blessed with the opportunity to talk with Julie Adams and her son Mitch Danton before the festival, in an interview that is forthcoming (stay glued to Facebook, Twitter, and the website for details!). At the Expo, I was able »

World 3-D Film Expo: “House Of Wax”

10 September 2013 3:20 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

For the third year running, the World 3-D Film Expo has come to Hollywood, with 35 screenings of rare, classic 3-D prints spread out over two weeks at the resplendently restored and iconic Grauman’s Egyptian Theater.

This year, audiences are treated to a stellar lineup that includes House Of Wax, Creature From The Black Lagoon, Revenge Of The Creature, Jaws 3-D, Wings Of The Hawk, It Came From Outer Space, The Mad Magician, Robot Monster, Hondo, and many more.

The event began this past weekend, and I had the pleasure of being in attendance for a couple of the screenings. It was my first experience with the Expo, and it’s all been fantastic thus far. Over the next week, I’ll be discussing my experiences at the event (I’m attending four days), the movies, and the special guests in attendance (like The Julie Adams, Joe Alves, and Piper Laurie).

Brash Blonde vs. Sweet Blonde (Long Before Titanic): Farrell Has Her 'Summer' Day

29 August 2013 5:20 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Glenda Farrell: Actress has her ‘Summer Under the Stars’ day Scene-stealer Glenda Farrell is Turner Classic Movies’ "Summer Under the Stars" star today, August 29, 2013. A reliable — and very busy — Warner Bros. contract player in the ’30s, the sharp, energetic, fast-talking blonde actress was featured in more than fifty films at the studio from 1931 to 1939. Note: This particular Glenda Farrell has nothing in common with the One Tree Hill character played by Amber Wallace in the television series. The Glenda Farrell / One Tree Hill name connection seems to have been a mere coincidence. (Photo: Glenda Farrell as Torchy Blane in Smart Blonde.) Back to Warners’ Glenda Farrell: TCM is currently showing Torchy Runs for Mayor (1939), one of the seven B movies starring Farrell as intrepid reporter Torchy Blane. Major suspense: Will Torchy win the election? She should. No city would ever go bankrupt with Torchy at the helm. Glenda Farrell »

We previously reported that Warner Bros. was working on a House of Wax 3D Blu-ray release for the movie’s 60th anniversary. We now have a look at the official cover art and details on bonus features. 

“Professor Henry Jarrod (Price) is the owner and figure sculptor in a wax museum whose specialty is historic figures. When he and his business partner, Matthew Burke (Roy Roberts) quarrel over the choice of exhibits displayed, Burke suggests it would be more profitable to burn down the museum in order to obtain the insurance money. As they fight, the museum burns and Jarrod is left for dead. It’s not until much later at a new museum that the fate of Jarrod and the mystery of how the lifelike waxed figures are created becomes gruesomely evident.”
