The Chicago Critics' Top 100 Horror (or Just Plain Creepy) Films in History

31 October 2014 3:20 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Scariest movies ever made: The top 100 horror films according to the Chicago Film Critics (photo: Janet Leigh, John Gavin and Vera Miles in Alfred Hitchcock's 'Psycho') I tend to ignore lists featuring the Top 100 Movies (or Top 10 Movies or Top 20 Movies, etc.), no matter the category or criteria, because these lists are almost invariably compiled by people who know little about films beyond mainstream Hollywood stuff released in the last decade or two. But the Chicago Film Critics Association's list of the 100 Scariest Movies Ever Made, which came out in October 2006, does include several oldies — e.g., James Whale's Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein — in addition to, gasp, a handful of non-American horror films such as Dario Argento's Suspiria, Werner Herzog's Nosferatu the Vampyre, and F.W. Murnau's brilliant Dracula rip-off Nosferatu. (Check out the full list of the Chicago Film Critics' top 100 horror movies of all time. »

Bigfoot Saturdays: ‘Night of the Demon’ is Glorious Schlock Incarnate

24 October 2014 7:47 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

[Continued from Part 3]

Take four, the final take of why I wanted to write about Bigfoot: Bigfoot is fun.

I like dissecting movies. That is, after all, why I spend countless hours pounding out essays and reviews during my free time. I enjoy it so much that on my days off from work, instead of just watching more movies and relaxing, I take time out to essentially do more work (enjoyable work, fun work, rewarding work, but work nonetheless). Thinking about Bigfoot films- one of the strange little movie niches that I enjoy incredibly despite often minimal returns- is enjoyable, it’s complex, and it can provide insight into why images resonate the way they do, and why they stick with me beyond a film’s runtime, but it doesn’t explain why I started watching all these movies in the first place. At the heart of it, I like Bigfoot because he’s fun. »

Last week we brought you an exclusive still from Juan Martinez Moreno’s The ABCs Of Death 2 segment, “S is for Split,” and today we’re continuing our coverage by sharing a short interview we conducted with Moreno. We had the opportunity to shoot a few questions the filmmaker’s way about his super-tense segment, delving deeper into his love of horror and what cinematic scares keep him up at night. In addition, be sure to return on 10/23 for a guest entry from Moreno himself, going into detail about his favorite cinematic death scene of all time.

Wgtc: What’s your favorite horror movie and how did it influence you as a filmmaker?

Juan Martinez Moreno: It’s impossible for me to name just one, there are Lots!! I love some classics, Todd Browning’s Freaks, Jacques Tourneur’s Night Of The Demon, or Robert Wise’s The Haunting. »

Bad, On Purpose? The Awful, Awful Scourge of ‘Sharknado’

10 August 2014 2:26 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

I adore bad movies. I own Foodfight! on DVD. I’ve made countless friends furious when I forced them to sit through Manos: the Hands of Fate. I own a VHS player partly so I can watch my copy of Miami Connection. Terrifyingly personal psycho-drama turned black comedy The Room, no-budget bigfoot horror Night of the Demon, the many sordid works of Neil Breen, real estate agent by day, least charismatic person to ever act by night- these are movies that I enjoy, truly, and, strange as it may seem, they mean something to me. When I tell people that Birdemic is one of my favorite films ever, I mean it in every way, with no ironic distance. As silly as they are, as strange as the cult of bad movie watchers is, these things are more than just trainwrecks to be watched with a sense of sadistic joy; they’re odd, »

The Most Insane Bigfoot & Yeti Movies Ever Made

24 March 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Considering they're the best-known cryptids in history, the humanoids known variously as Sasquatch, Bigfoot, Yeti, the Abominable Snowman and so forth don't get much respect in modern cinema. While thousands of hours of film and video have been dedicated to these elusive man-beasts, there's something about the big dude that makes it nearly impossible for filmmakers to take him seriously, or even tell a semi-competent story about him. It's certainly not for a lack of trying; there have been nearly a hundred Bigfoot and Yeti movies released since the '50s. Old-fashioned giant monster romps, found-footage and slasher entries, feel-good family dramas, romantic comedies... even porno flicks. So why are nearly all of them so damn goofy?   Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy these insane interpretations; in fact, the crazier they get, the more I dig 'em. So to honor this dubious cinematic legacy, here are two dozen of »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #58. Joe Dante’s Casting the Runes

26 February 2014 6:30 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Casting the Runes

Director: Joe Dante

Writer: David Tully

Producers: Daniel Tully, Rob Heydon

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Simon Pegg

So Joe Dante’s last film was the underrated 2009 3D film, The Hole, which sadly went direct to DVD even after being well received in Venice and Toronto that year. Now, he’s got a few projects brewing and 2014 will see the release of his film, Burying the Ex starring Anton Yelchin. But the project we are really interested in this project, which looks to be based on the same short story that inspired Jacques Tourneur’s classic 1957 film Night of the Demon, which starred Dana Andrews. While Sam Raimi did a sort of homage to the material already with his 2009 film Drag Me To Hell, Dante’s film seems more of a direct connection. And set to star Simon Pegg!
