Movie Poster of the Week: “Man in the Dark”

18 July 2014 8:21 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Screening in all its 3-dimensional glory on August 1st and 2nd in MoMA’s essential summer retro Lady in the Dark: Crime Films from Columbia Pictures, 1932–1957, Man in the Dark was the first 3-D film released by a Hollywood Studio. United Artists' Bwana Devil had been released in November 1952, but it was regarded as an independent production. Warner Brothers was scheduled to have the first major studio release with House of Wax, but Columbia, in their true balls-to-the-wall style, rushed Man in the Dark into production, filmed it in 11 days, and got it up on screen on April 8, 1953, a mere 48 hours before André de Toth’s House of Wax.

The plot is classic amnesiac noir: after undergoing experimental brain surgery in prison to remove his criminal tendencies, Edmond O’Brien finds he has lost his memory and ends up being pursued by his former cohorts—all the way »

Late Horror Icon Paul Naschy Returns in Upcoming Film Wax

3 June 2014 11:41 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Back in 2009 we lost iconic Spanish actor Paul Naschy, who is best known for playing a handful of legendary monsters, including the Wolfman, Frankenstein's monster, Dracula and the Mummy. Five years after his death, Naschy is set to return to the screen in a film entitled Wax.

Per Bloody Disgusting, Victor Matellano's debut film will feature the voice of Naschy, which will emanate from one of the film's animatronic wax figures. The voice samples were taken from old theatrical recordings.

Jack Taylor, Geraldine Chaplin, and Jimmy Shaw also star in the film, and you can check out the teaser trailer, poster art, and a few stills below, the latter of which are loaded with tasty boobage!

Synopsis

Wax tells the story of a young journalist employed to spend a night at Barcelona’s Wax Museum, where paranormal activities are supposed to be taking place. He must record everything happening there. »

Horror's 7 Most Haunting Houses

27 May 2014 3:10 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Aside from The Return of… or The Revenge of…, there may be no more beloved horror titles than those involving The House…. There is something very mysterious and foreboding about a mysterious house containing all kinds of unknown horrors.

Shout Factory has released a new entry on the list with House in the Alley arising today, May 27th. The obscure Vietnamese horror pic is sure to pique the interest of fans and follow in the footsteps of some of the freaky House-themed films of the past…which leads us to our newest Top List: Horror's 7 Most Haunting Houses.

Make no mistake; we aren't necessarily talking about 'haunted houses' here, but 'haunting houses,' meaning movies with House in the title that did a wonderful job of scaring the hell out of us. We'll begin with some honorable mentions to get the ball rolling.

The video game-inspired House of the Dead »

William Castle’s The Tingler and House On Haunted Hill – A Look Back at 1959

11 May 2014 7:46 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The St. Louis Globe-Democrat is a monthly newspaper run by Steve DeBellis, a well know St. Louis historian, and it’s the largest one-man newspaper in the world. The concept of The Globe is that there is an old historic headline, then all the articles in that issue are written as though it’s the year that the headline is from. It’s an unusual concept but the paper is now in its 27th successful year! Steve and I collaborated in 2011 on an all-Vincent Price issue of The Globe and he has asked me to write a regular monthly movie-related column. Since there is no on-line version of The Globe, I will be posting all of my articles here at We Are Movie Geeks. Since this month’s St. Louis Globe-Democrat is written as if it’s 1959, I decided to write about two of my favoririte films from that »

The Bottom Shelf: Theatre Of Blood, Sparks, Wrecked and more

7 May 2014 2:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It's a new monthly horror column, where Nick looks at the latest DVD and Blu-ray releases. This time? Theatre Of Blood, Sparks and more...

Feature

Welcome to Den Of Geek’s newest regular feature. Leaving a monthly stain on the glowing veneer of the site’s hallowed digital halls, this blog’s humble goal is to explore cinema’s shady alleyways in search of the obscure, weird and not-so-wonderful, bad taste, or just plain bad. All clear? Then, let’s get wading.

Everyone knows that critics are a wretched, bitter cross-section of human sewage, right? In case you’d forgotten, the first few films we encounter provide evidence of these dregs of society finally getting their just desserts.

Vincent Price might be the perfect critic-slayer. Surely there can be no finer way to go than accompanied by a Shakespearian quote in the high-camp dulcet tones of a horror legend. Theatre Of Blood, »
