Watch: 13-Minute Tribute To Alfred Hitchcock Celebrates The Films Of The Master Of Suspense

23 October 2014 12:03 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s been 34 years since Alfred Hitchcock’s passing and his influence still looms large, such as TV shows like “Bones,” which will present an homage to the director for its 200th episode. The tributes to the self-described traditional filmmaker don’t end there, as editor Shaun Higgins has crafted a nearly 13-minute long video tribute to the Master of Suspense. Covering the entirety of his big-screen career —which that means no “Alfred Hitchcock Presents” —the video contains shots from every single film Hitchcock directed, from the 1925 silent film “The Pleasure Garden” to Hitch’s last film, the disappointing 1976 comedy-thriller “Family Plot.” This may be the first time a tribute video finds itself impervious to criticisms of omitted films, though you may still be miffed that your favorite moment or shot isn’t accounted for. Watch “Alfred Hitchcock (1925 - 1976)” below and let us know what some of your favorite Hitchcock movies are. »

"I Deal In Nightmares": Watch Vintage 20-Minute Interview With Alfred Hitchcock

3 October 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We’re finally in the spooky month of October, the time of year where TV networks of all stripes start broadcasting horror films. One filmmaker whose work is a staple of the annual celebration of the macabre is the master of suspense himself, Alfred Hitchcock. Earlier this week, a 20-minute interview from 1966 with the British director surfaced online and it not only showcases Hitchcock’s deadpan wit, but also has some great quotes like, “I deal in nightmares.” Although many pretend otherwise, the migration of high-caliber, world-class filmmakers like Steven SoderberghDavid Fincher and Jane Campion to the small screen isn’t entirely without precedent. During the same time period that he released films like “To Catch a Thief,” “Vertigo,” “North by Northwest” and “Psycho,” Hitchcock helmed 17 episodes for his eponymous TV show, “Alfred Hitchcock Presents,” between 1955 and 1961. Indeed, in the interview Hitchcock says that he applied some of the lessons. »

Don Keefer Has Passed Away

25 September 2014 12:22 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Don Keefer left an indelible mark on the minds of horror and sci-fi fans with his crucial and courageous role in a classic episode of The Twilight Zone and his memorable turn in “The Crate” segment of George A. Romero and Stephen King’s Creepshow. Though his impressive onscreen personalities will last forever, we’re sad to report that Don Keefer has passed away at the age of 98.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Don Keefer passed away of natural causes on September 7th. In the 1961 “It’s a Good Life” episode of The Twilight Zone, Don played Dan Hollis, a man celebrating his birthday with his wife, a few friends, and the six-year-old mind-reading malevolent mutant, Anthony Fremont. Don turned in a powerful performance, standing up to the young telepathic murderer and challenging his friends to put an end to the madness. His desperate speech was a spine-tingler and helped »

7 Filmmakers that should give TV a try

8 September 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Richard Linklater

In this new golden age of television that we are currently living in, the television industry is poaching some of cinema’s greatest minds more than ever to create their own long form stories after being restricted to the hour and a half to maximum four hours that film allows. The gap is getting increasingly small between the two in terms of quality, and some would argue that TV has already overtaken film in some respects.

Steven Soderbergh, Guillermo del Toro, Eli Roth, Martin Scorsese, and Lars Von Trier have or are about to make the leap from the silver screen to the small screen with The Knick, The Strain, Hemlock Grove, and the upcoming Shutter Island prequel and The House That Jack Built. They’re not the first major filmmakers to create a show; both Alfred Hitchcock and David Lynch famously did so with Alfred Hitchcock Presents »

Event Report – The Big Picture: Hitchcock! Live!

3 September 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Every once in a while, you’ll hear the details of an event that sounds so, so awesome, that it takes you a moment to properly process what you just heard. Such was the case when my friend Monica invited me to join her for what was being billed as “The Big Picture: Hitchcock!” – A tribute to the great Alfred Hitchcock, one of the greatest directors of all time, and more importantly a tribute to all the wonderful music that has been created for his masterpieces. The concert took place at the legendary Hollywood Bowl theater on August 31st, 2014 with composer David Newman (son of the great Alfred Newman) leading the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra to perform live music from select scenes of 12 Hitchcock pictures.

The performers took to the stage to the narration that opens the record Alfred Hitchcock Presents “Music To Be Murdered By,” which immediately set the fun »

French Actor Jacques Bergerac, ‘Hypnotic Eye’ Star, Dies at 87

26 June 2014 12:49 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jacques Bergerac, a French actor who made a name for himself in film and TV and was wed to some of Hollywood’s most sought-after actresses during the 1950s and ’60s, has died. He was 87.

Bergerac died June 15 at his home in Anglet in the Pyrenees-Atlantiques region of southwest France, according to French media reports. The actor appeared in the cult horror film “Hypnotic Eye” and musical romantic comedy “Gigi” alongside Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron.

Bergerac gained his U.S. citizenship in 1963 and married Oscar-winning actress Ginger Rogers when he was 26. Rogers was 16 years his senior. He left his law studies behind in France and returned to the U.S. with Rogers to pursue a career in acting.

When they first met in France Rogers landed him a screen test at MGM, which led to a role in “Twist of Fate” in 1954 with him playing her onscreen boyfriend.

Showtime tempted by Morgan Spurlock's 'Seven Deadly Sins'

28 March 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Morgan Spurlock is returning to television, this time turning his attention to some of humanity’s indulgences with a Showtime limited series called "Seven Deadly Sins". The documentary will be broken into seven episodes, each hosted by Spurlock as he examines one of the Seven Deadly Sins: greed, sloth, envy, pride, wrath, lust and gluttony. “For years, I’ve wanted to do an "Alfred Hitchcock Presents"-style show comprised completely of nonfiction stories,” Spurlock said in a statement. “A series just as dark and twisted as anything fiction could imagine, and now I’m thrilled to have that dream come true with "Seven Deadly Sins". With Showtime as a partner, we’re going to make this as depraved as any scripted program as we dive head first into Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy and Pride. You won’t believe it until you see it…and even then, you may not believe it. »

‘Se7en’ Meets ‘Super Size Me’ With New Morgan Spurlock Series

26 March 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Imagine a nonfiction television series focused on greed, gluttony, sloth, lust, pride, envy and wrath. Well, doesn’t that just describe the whole gamut of reality TV? Yes, but not in a condemnable way that acknowledges these things as the cardinal sins they are. We need someone to take these vices back and put them in their place, and Oscar-nominated documentarian Morgan Spurlock seems to be that person, like a premium cable version of John Doe in Se7en, only without the killing. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he’s got a new show headed to Showtime called Seven Deadly Sins, which he describes as being like Alfred Hitchcock Presents but with true stories. I’d say this joins the new trend this year for major documentary filmmakers hitting the small screen with nonfiction miniseries, but Spurlock has been producing and hosting stuff for TV for years and already currently has the continuing Inside Man on CNN »

Review: Grand Piano

6 March 2014 10:13 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Feeling very much like a long lost episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Eugenio Mira’s Grand Piano is a stylish and taut thriller that wastes no time on spectacle, instead choosing to meticulously focus on story, characters, atmosphere and building tension throughout.

In Grand Piano, Elijah Wood portrays piano virtuoso Tom Selznick, who has fallen from the limelight after his last performance was a total disaster, leaving him as the laughing stock of the pianist world. Primed to make his comeback while playing his mentor’s piano at a special concert put together by his loving wife Emma (Kerry Bishe), Tom does his best to feign confidence as he first sits down to perform for an eager audience.

That façade of confidence is quickly shaken when he realizes there’s a maniacal sniper in the building (John Cusack) who has a gun aimed at his head. If Tom plays even »
