It’s Elvira! The Mistress of the Dark Reveals Her Favorite Horror Movies

31 October 2016 12:29 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Cassandra Peterson has spent over half her life playing Elvira, the Mistress of the Dark.

“I can’t believe I’m celebrating 35 years with this character,” Peterson, 65, tells People of creating the iconic horror character as part of a local Los Angeles TV show. “But I think she’s got just the right mix of sexy, scary and funny for everyone to find something to love about her.”

Peterson — who co-wrote and starred in two Elvira movies — has watched with pride and awe as Elvira grew into a cult-favorite character with costumes, comic books, action figures, trading cards, pinball machines, »

Blu-ray Review: The Boy Who Cried Werewolf (1973)

31 August 2016 8:50 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

As someone who has always considered the werewolf to be his favorite movie monster, it has long been disheartening to see just how few truly good werewolf movies exist. Opinions may vary, of course, but I’d put the number somewhere between 10 and 20. While it’s not without its own charm, 1973’s The Boy Who Cried Werewolf, new to home video from Scream Factory after years of being unavailable, probably won’t be making that list.

A unique hybrid of monster movie, children’s fantasy, and 1970s domestic drama, The Boy Who Cried Werewolf finds young Richie Bridgestone watching the marriage of his parents dissolve. While on a trip to the family cabin with his dad (Kerwin Mathews), the pair is attacked by a wolf that bites his father. Before he can say, “I’m pretty sure my dad is a werewolf,” Richie’s dad becomes a werewolf and starts killing people. »

Top Ten Tuesday – Top Ten White People Doing The Right Thing

30 August 2016 3:11 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I think everyone in this country should be aware by now that our race relations are at an all time low.  It seems every time we hear the news another black citizen has been shot by the police or police have been shot by someone angry about these shootings.  It cannot continue.  We as a nation cannot keep going down this road.

I have always sympathized with Black Americans.  In fact as a Scot and Irish American I have always sympathized with anyone who ever got pushed around, starting with Native Americans, Asians, Jewish immigrants, women of any ethnic group, Hispanics from any country.

I also sympathize with the people who are tasked with law enforcement.  It’s a tough job.  I had some training in that area.  A couple of years ago I was hired by a Security company and was trained in unarmed, and armed, uniformed security.   I »

Happy Birthday Ray Harryhausen – Here are His Ten Best Films

29 June 2016 3:36 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, Sam Moffitt, and Tom Stockman

Special effects legend Ray Harryhausen, whose dazzling and innovative visual effects work on fantasy adventure films such as Jason And The Argonauts  and  The 7th Voyage Of Sinbad  passed away in 2013 at age 92. In 1933, the then-13-year-old Ray Harryhausen saw King Kong at a Hollywood theater and was inspired – not only by Kong, who was clearly not just a man in a gorilla suit, but also by the dinosaurs. He came out of the theatre “stunned and haunted. They looked absolutely lifelike … I wanted to know how it was done.” It was done by using stop-motion animation: jointed models filmed one frame at a time to simulate movement. Harryhausen was to become the prime exponent of the technique and its combination with live action. The influence of Harryhausen on film luminaries like Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Peter Jackson, and »

Kicking thing off on July 5th, the Sf/IFC Midnight films The Pack and Cabin Fever (the odd remake which used most of the script from the original film) are set to hit DVD/Bluray, while later in the month (July 26th), the long-lost cult favorites Hellhole and The Boy Who Cried Werewolf are set to make their Bluray debuts as well.

Cabin Fever & The Pack (July 5th)

A sanitarium with a sinister staff and a family with a hairy (and scary) dilemma will get the high-def treatment on July 26th with the respective Blu-ray releases of 1985’s Hellhole (being distributed on a Blu-ray / DVD combo pack) and 1973’s The Boy Who Cried Werewolf.

On This Day: Marilyn Mania and Sarah Connor x 3

19 May 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

May your 19th be beautiful.

On this day in history as it relates to the movies...

1536 Anne Boleyn is beheaded. Her tragedy is later reenacted by hundreds of actresses on tv, stage and film including Natalie Portman, Vanessa Redgrave, Helena Bonham Carter, and Genevieve Bujold (Oscar nomination).

1836 Cynthia Ann Parker is kidnapped in Texas during an Indian raid after her family is slaughtered. That's a tough break but not many people get to live on in history through multiple classics albeit under pseudonyms like "Debbie Edwards" (Natalie Wood in The Searchers) and "Stands With Fist" (Mary McDonnell in Dances With Wolves). 

1925 Malcolm X is born. 67 years later Denzel Washington wins his second Oscar playing him (Shut up! This is our preferred version of history because Al Pacino in Scent of a Woman. Ugh, really?)

1941 Nora Ephron is born spewing witticisms.

1958 Attack of the 50 Foot Woman is released in movie theaters. »
