Night of the Demon (Rendez-vous avec la peur)

20 May 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

This French disc release of the Jacques Tourneur classic gets everything right — including both versions in picture perfect transfers. Devil debunker Dana Andrews locks horns with Niall MacGinnis, a necromancer “who has decoded the Old Book” and can summon a fire & brimstone monster from Hell, no election fraud necessary. Even fans that hate ghost stories love this one — it’s a truly creepy, intelligent highlight of the horror genre.

DVD Review – The City of the Dead (1960)

24 April 2017 3:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The City of the Dead, 1960.

Directed by John Llewellyn Moxey.

Starring Patricia Jessel, Dennis Lotis, Christopher Lee, Tom Naylor, Valentine Dyall, Venetia Stevenson, Fred Johnson, and Norman Macowan.

Synopsis:

A student travels to a remote New England village to research a paper on witchcraft, only to discover that the old legends of sacrifice may not be as in the past as she would like.

By 1960 Christopher Lee had already played his most iconic role for Hammer Films in Dracula, as well as appearing as the creature in The Curse of Frankenstein and the titular monster in The Mummy, and although he would go on to become a huge box office star in various other genre outings it was in this period during the early ‘60s (i.e. before he was churning out Dracula sequels on a regular basis) that he made some quite interesting little movies, and The City of the Dead »

From Kong to Kong: the 18 greatest monster movie scores

13 March 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Kong: Skull Island out now, Sean Wilson looks back at the classic monster movies with top tunes…

It’s time for Kong to reclaim his crown as king of the movie monsters in all-action blockbuster romp Kong: Skull Island, the latest instalment in the ongoing Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures ‘MonsterVerse’ that will eventually see the great ape do battle with the equally legendary Godzilla.

Featuring an all-star cast led by Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and John C. Reilly, Skull Island also features a rousing score from Captain America: Civil War composer Henry Jackman who uses every orchestral force at his disposal to depict Kong’s overwhelming size.

So what better time to recap the all-time-greatest monster movie scores from Hollywood and beyond?

King Kong (Max Steiner, 1933)

The one that started it all, as well as the birth of the monster movie and its accompanying soundtrack. Few »

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Brides Of Dracula (1960)

4 February 2017 10:20 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It’s Hammer Time again! Every once in a while I like to dip back to that golden age, where the revered monsters of yore were dusted off with loving care for a newly appreciative crowd of teenagers at the Drive-In. Building upon the worldwide success of The Curse of Frankenstein (1957), Horror of Dracula (’58), and The Mummy (’59), it was time for another Drac attack. The Brides of Dracula (1960) keeps up the high level horror, as long as you’re okay with a Dracula movie having no Dracula. Looking back on the whole series, Brides stands out (and up) due to this very omission.

Released in the UK in July, with a stateside rollout in September, Brides was another hit for the unstoppable Hammer machine; and why wouldn’t it be? All the staples (by this point, a formula, really) are present: cleavage, gorgeous cinematography, solid performances, and a gloriously elevated Gothic tone. »

Hammer Films, Motion Picture Capital team for movie fund

12 January 2017 2:08 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Hammer Films Eis Fund will back film and TV projects.

UK financier Motion Picture Capital, the Reliance Entertainment Group subsidiary, has formed a partnership with iconic UK production company Hammer Films.

The two companies are teaming on a new film fund called The Hammer Films Eis Fund which will offer private investors the opportunity to invest in a slate of Hammer branded film and TV productions.

The new fund will sit alongside Motion Picture Capital’s existing Eis fund and will only be accessible through a financial adviser.

Iconic horror label Hammer, best known for gothic horror films of the 1950’s including The Curse of Frankenstein, The Mummy and Christopher Lee’s Dracula, made a splash in 2012 with UK horror The Woman In Black, starring Daniel Radcliffe, which became the highest-grossing British horror film on record, taking £21.3m in its home territory and going on to gross over $130m worldwide.

2014 productions included »
