Wait Until Dark

30 December 2016 12:13 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Is this a genuine classic? I think so. Sure, it’s the old story of the blind girl in jeopardy, but it’s been worked out so well. Audrey Hepburn, Alan Arkin, Richard Crenna and Jack Weston shine in a keen adaptation of Frederick Knott’s play, which could be titled, Dial C for Can’t See Nuthin’.

21 October 2016 11:33 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Prince Albert of Monaco is an American homeowner!

The prince confirms exclusively to People that he recently purchased the childhood home of his mother, actress-turned-royal, Princess Grace.

“It feels good,” he tells People of the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, home. “I’m very happy to have saved this old family home from a near certain death or development.

“We’re still trying to figure out what we’re going to do with it. We’re looking at having it contain some museum exhibit space and maybe use part of it for offices for some of our foundation work.”

Film Festival Roundup: AFI Fest Adds ‘La La Land’ Gala, London Awards Kelly Reichardt’s ‘Certain Women’ and More

20 October 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Keep up with the always-hopping film festival world with our weekly Film Festival Roundup column. Check out last week’s Roundup right here.

Full Lineup Announcements

– “3-D Auteurs,” a 19-day, 34-film festival spotlighting stereoscopic movies by some of history’s most distinguished directors, will run at Film Forum November 11 – 29. The festival spans 3-D’s earliest days (including some turn-of-the-century films by pioneer Georges Méliès) to the present, and represents virtually every genre, including Westerns, Film Noir, and Science Fiction. Hollywood’s first big 3-D craze (sometimes called 3-D’s “golden era”), intended to offset the threat of television, came in the early 1950s, with such movies as Hitchcock’s “Dial M For Murder,” André De Toth’s “House of Wax” and Jack Arnold’s “Creature From the Black Lagoon” (all included in the series).

Hollywood produced roughly 50 movies in the process from 1952 to 1954, before fizzling out and being overtaken by »

Horror disc round-up: Ghoulies, The Burning, Frogs vs Slugs

3 October 2016 4:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Nick Aldwinckle Oct 25, 2016

Fancy some horror? We've been taking a look at the discs of Ghoulies, The Burning, Psychomania and more...

“Have you ever heard a frog scream?”, the tag-line to George McCowan’s 1972 ecological horror Frogs (out now on Arrow Blu-ray) should have read. Indeed, for any of you readers that have ever been rudely awoken at 2am by the sound of a traumatised frog being gifted to you by your pet cat/furry psychopath, an amphibian cry of terror is probably the second worst sound there is (behind, of course, Kaiser Chiefs).

Not that frogs themselves are inherently evil, though viewing this classic dose of seventies green-themed nastiness might convince you otherwise. Slugs are Ok, too, though we’ll get on to them later on in this month’s vague »

Daily | “Joe Dante at the Movies”

4 August 2016 9:33 AM, PDT | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

"For Joe Dante at the Movies, a retrospective at BAMcinématek running Friday through Aug. 24," begins Glenn Kenny in the New York Times, "the programmers let that director pair his movies, including Gremlins, Innerspace, The ’Burbs and Gremlins 2: The New Batch, with gems and oddities ranging across cinema’s past, including The Black Cat, Dial M for Murder and the W.C. Fields comedy It’s a Gift…. 'Movies are a 20th-century art form, and the 20th century is over,' he said during an interview in which he discussed fighting to keep the grimmest of Christmas tales in Gremlins, working with a young Ethan Hawke and River Phoenix on their first movie and creating a Gremlins 2 character, who resembles a certain Republican presidential nominee." We're collecting reviews and more interviews. » - David Hudson »

June 28th Blu-ray & DVD Releases Include Return Of The Killer Tomatoes

27 June 2016 5:37 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

June is ending on a quiet note for horror and sci-fi home entertainment releases, as we only have six titles coming our way on June 28th.

Blue Underground has shown some love to two cult classics with their Blu-ray double feature of Circus of Fear and Five Golden Dragons, and Arrow Video is resurrecting another cult classic (albeit one that is a bit more recent) with their Return of the Killer Tomatoes Special Edition Blu-ray.

Other notable titles being released this Tuesday include Alien Strain, Shark Exorcist, Forgotten Tales, and Hotel Inferno.

Alien Strain (Mti Home Video, DVD)

After his girlfriend vanishes without a trace on a camping trip, he quickly goes from witness to suspect. Now, a year later, she returns to the very spot from which she was taken, but not like she was before.

Ten Things I Learned At The 2016 TCM Classic Film Festival

7 May 2016 1:12 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Well, another year spent in the company of classic cinema curated by the TCM Classic Film Festival has come and gone, leaving me with several great experiences watching favorite films and ones I’d never before seen, some already cherished memories, and the usual weary bag of bones for a body in the aftermath. (I usually come down with something when I decompress post-festival and get back to the working week, and this year has been no exception.) There have now been seven TCMFFs since its inaugural run in 2010. I’ve been lucky enough to attend them all, and this time around I saw more movies than I ever have before—18 features zipping from auditorium to queue and back to auditorium like a gerbil in a tube maze. In order to make sure I got in to see everything I wanted to see, I had to make sure I was »

Watch: 9-Minute Video Essay Examines How Alfred Hitchcock Brilliantly Blocks A Scene

24 March 2016 7:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s safe to say most filmmakers today have learned something from Alfred Hitchcock, if not been directly influence. The master filmmaker's resumé speaks for itself — “Rear Window,” “Psycho,” “Rebecca,” “Notorious,” “Strangers on a Train,” “Rope,” “The Birds,” “North by Northwest,” “Shadow of a Doubt” and “Dial M for Murder” — and his remarkable grasp on technical prowess in achieving big screen spectacle has been rarely matched. And among the things Hitchcock knew best about filmmaking was how to stage a scene, as broken down and analyzed by Nerdwriter1 in his latest video, “How Alfred Hitchcock Blocks A Scene.” Read More: Watch: 7-Minute Video Essay Explores Ensemble Staging In Bong Joon-Ho's 'Memories Of Murder' Taking a closer look at an early scene in “Vertigo” — the 1958 picture some cinephiles would argue is not only Hitchcock’s greatest work, but also quite possibly the best film of all-time — the nine-minute »

NYC Weekend Watch: Metrograph, Jerry Lewis, Stan Brakhage, ‘Late Spring’ & More

3 March 2016 5:48 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Metrograph

The most exciting theater to hit New York in years opens today. They’ll begin with The Purple Rose of Cairo and Taxi Driver on Friday. Saturday and Sunday unbelievably packed, the schedule including The Spirit of the Beehive, Vivre Sa Vie, The Long Day Closes, Femme Fatale, Goodbye, Dragon Inn, and Noah Baumbach‘s »

Let Us Prey (2014) review

27 January 2016 9:43 PM, PST | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Michael Sieber

MoreHorror.com

Let Us Prey is a film released in 2014 staring Liam Cunningham, Pollyanna McIntosh and was directed by Brian O’ Malley.

McIntosh plays PC. Rachel Heggie, who is a cop starting a new job at an out of the way Scottish police station. Upon Heggie’s arrival at the station, it looks like it’s going to be a boring shift. However, things begin to get weird as the jail fills up with an assortment of ne’er do wells who have much more beneath the surface than the crimes that landed them in their cells. This sets the stage for the arrival of a mysterious stranger - thought to have been involved in a motor vehicle accident earlier in the film - who stirs the pot and boils up mayhem for everyone involved.

I enjoy films that take place primarily in one location, Dial M for Murder »

I Confess

23 January 2016 4:50 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

What's it all about, Alfie? The master of suspense goes in an unusual direction with this murder mystery with a Catholic background. And foreground. Actually, it's a regular guidebook for proper priest deportment, and it's so complex that we wonder if Hitchcock himself had a full grip on it. Montgomery Clift is extremely good atop a top-rank cast that includes Anne Baxter and Karl Malden. Rated less exciting by audiences, this is really one of Hitch's best. I Confess Blu-ray Warner Archive Collection 1953 / B&W / 1:37 flat Academy / 94 min. / Street Date February 16, 2016 / available through the WBshop / 17.95 Starring Montgomery Clift, Anne Baxter, Karl Malden, Brian Aherne, Roger Dann, Dolly Haas, Charles Andre, O.E.
