'Penny Dreadful' men bring brooding horror to Comic-Con: Live-Blog

10 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's been a long day in Ballroom 20. I live-blogged "24." I live-blogged "Under the Dome" by accident. I live-blogged "Community." And I watched thousands of young women squeal over Dylan O'Brien. Now it's time to cap off Comic-Con Thursday with Showtime's "Penny Dreadful." While Eva Green is absent -- Too busy to kick off her 2015 Emmy campaign here? -- we have many of the "Penny Dreadful" men, including creator John Logan, Reeve "Dorian Gray" Carney, Harry "Frankenstein" Treadaway and Josh "Werewolf Guy" Harnett.  Aisha Tyler is moderating. Click through and follow along... 5:58 p.m. "Penny Dreadful" has to follow after the terrific "Hannibal" panel, which was also missing a number of featured stars... Sepinwall live-blogged that one. Oh and we don't really have the "Penny Dreadful" men, because Timothy Dalton isn't here.  6:04 p.m. Great Season 1 sizzle reel. Few people on TV can equal Eva Green when it comes »

Trailers from Hell Says 'Let Him Have It'

9 July 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Today on Trailers from Hell, Brian Trenchard-Smith rediscovers another dark Brit drama about the death penalty, "Let Him Have It," starring Christopher Eccleston as the real-life murderer of a policeman. The hangman Albert Pierrepoint (of "Pierrepoint: The Last Hangman") makes a small but important appearance in Peter Medek’s 1991 film about the controversial 1953 execution of Derek Bentley for the murder of a policeman (even though Bentley merely egged on the actual shooter with the phrase, “Let him have it.”) The film stars Christopher Eccleston as the doomed Bentley, Tom Courtenay as his father and a supporting cast featuring a who’s who of British character actors including Edward Hardwicke (Watson of BBC’s "Sherlock Holmes"), Michael Gough ("Horror of Dracula") and Clive Revill ("The Legend of Hell House") as the executioner Pierrepoint. Even though Bentley’s words "Let him have it ” were ambiguous when the policeman »

Even though Bentley's words " Let him have it " were ambiguous when the policeman demanded the shooter hand over the gun, the jury, under prejudicial instruction from the judge, decided the words meant "Shoot him!"

Kill Breed - A Look at the Many Species of Vampires

7 July 2014 10:59 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Vampire. Envision the creature. Do you picture the classic cloaked version? Or the frilly shirt-wearing kind? Or the feral? Or god forbid the sparkly ones? Vampires come in all shapes and sizes, and with Rigor Mortis coming to Blu-ray and DVD on July 8th, we decided to take a look at some of our favorites.

Ever since Bram Stoker brought us Dracula, filmmakers and storytellers have been modifying vamps and making them into all sorts of unique beasties. Some are pretty and some are really, really ugly… but they all drink blood and use humans like we use cattle.

Rigor Mortis features a very unique type of vampire, and it's always fun to see a creature that expands the legend.

So let's take a look at some of the coolest types of vampires that have come into our lives.

For starters, we'll begin with the classic vampire. And what do we mean by "classic" vampire? »

20 Greatest Movie Villains Played By British Actors

30 May 2014 6:28 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

tumblr

Mustache twirling aficionados of evil all know that when Hollywood wants ‘bad’ they go British, regardless of the characters actual nationality. Hollywood’s decision to cast Brits as bad guys started in the early days of cinema when American actors were reluctant to play villains so producers looked elsewhere.

They settled on the British because their accent was thought to represent sophistication and intelligence (clearly Hollywood producers have never been to Essex) and had anti-imperialistic connotations from the big, bad British Empire of yesteryear.

The British accent was to become a modern-day equivalent of the white hat/black hat stereotype of good and evil and was used to help audiences instantly recognize that one stereotype most people would never meet in real life; the evil genius. Almost a 100 years later and that tradition is still as strong as ever.

Metropolitan FilmExport at 25: Sammy Hadida’s Top 10 Pics

22 May 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Metropolitan FilmExport topper thinks back on the films he’s seen and handled in his career and names some of his favorites.

1. King Kong

My dad, who was distributing Rko movies in Casablanca, showed us the movie and I was so amazed by the adventure, the spectacle it provided.

2. Casablanca

Beyond the fact that the film resonated with me because I was raised in Casablanca, I loved the mythical couple formed by Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.

3. Vertigo

That film is still referenced. Hitchcock was able to weave amazing suspense in a story that he mastered from the beginning to the end.

4. Some Like It Hot

Marilyn Monroe was on the cover of Playboy on the day I was born so I’ve always had a soft spot for her.

5. Horror of Dracula

That movie traumatized me. It took me a while to get over it, but I loved it. »

Trailers from Hell Swims with 'Devil Ship Pirates'

2 May 2014 8:26 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This week on Trailers from Hell, Brian Trenchard-Smith takes on "Devil Ship Pirates," a troubled 1964 action/adventure maritime adventure film. Like its predecessor "The Pirates of Blood River," Hammer's second pirate saga overcomes its budget restraints by setting most of the action on dry land. As usual with the studio’s forays into historical material, the innate cruelty of those unforgiving eras is given its head, leading to more than a little blood being spilled on all the lovingly fabricated finery. Indispensable Hammer stalwart Jimmy Sangster ("Horror of Dracula") did the script and Hammer regulars Andrew Keir and Michael Ripper lend their typically steady support to Sir Christopher Lee, who gets to do some nifty buckling and swashing under Don Sharp’s efficient direction. »

Contest: Win The Quiet Ones Prize Pack

23 April 2014 8:35 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Releasing in theatres this Friday is the new Hammer horror film, The Quiet Ones. Inspired by true events, it stars Jared Harris as a college professor who tries to create a poltergeist. Co-starring are Sam Claflin as one of his students and Olivia Cooke as the experiment subject.

Though I haven’t yet seen the film myself, it looks to be rather chilling bit of horror and I’m definitely excited for it. Hammer recently gave us the excellent Woman In Black and I’m hopeful that The Quiet Ones will turn out to be just as terrifying. Judging by the trailers that we’ve seen, I think there’s a good chance that it will be.

In honor of the film’s upcoming release, we have a prize pack to give out to one luck reader. It includes a T-shirt, a box of matches, a poster, DVDs of The Woman In Black, »

Competition: Win ‘Frankenstein And The Monster From Hell’

15 April 2014 1:26 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

To celebrate the release of the Hammer classic Frankenstein And The Monster From Hell - coming to 2-disc DVD & single-disc Blu-ray for the first ever time in the UK on 28th April 2014 – we have a copy to giveaway to one lucky horror fan!

The final feature film directed by the legendary Terence Fisher, Frankenstein And The Monster From Hell is a perfect, unusually gory and beautifully gothic swan song for Hammer’s incarnation of Mary Shelley’s two accursed creations.

Featuring yet another standout performance by the brilliant Peter Cushing as the mad baron, Frankenstein And The Monster From Hell is also notable for the pre-Star Wars pairing of the actors who would four years later reunite to play two of the most iconic villains in the cinematic galaxy – Darth Vader (David Prowse) and Grand Moff Tarkin (Cushing).

Dracula, Prince of Darkness/Plague of the Zombies

14 March 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Trailers From Hell welcomes all movies great and small but sometimes a particular trailer may not be up to the visual quality of the rest of our catalog or is simply too oddball to present in our usual format. Nevertheless, there’s such a wealth of exciting, strange and unusual films out there, we’d be remiss not to call attention to them. We’re happy to present the Tfh Misfits.

 

The double feature trailer for Hammer’s underrated follow-up to 1958′s Horror of Dracula starring a silent movie version of the vampire (Christopher Lee thought the dialogue was too dumb to utter). Its co-feature, a downer-zombie movie with a unique slant on the social stratification of the UK at the turn of the century, was part of the so-called “Cornwall” duo claiming The Reptile as its sister film due to similar locations and settings.

Top 11 Most Vicious Vampires

20 January 2014 1:48 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

They are perhaps the most versatile monster we know. The vampire. Sometimes sexy, sometimes proper, sometimes feral, sometimes classic. The vampire comes in so many different forms.

With the release of Black Water Vampire on DVD and VOD tomorrow, January 21st, we celebrate the Top 11 Most Vicious Vampires.

There are so many to choose from. Vampires have been present in movies and television forever, so picking out the most vicious is no mean feat. We've done our best to narrow it down to the Top 11 but also have our usual honorable mentions to help flesh out the list (pun definitely intended).

We'd like to recognize the infected Alpha male vampire from I Am Legend; that dude was simply badass. In any version of Salem's Lot, be it either of the television mini-series or the book, Kurt Barlow has always been Type 1 brutal. Chris Sarandon's Jerry Dandridge in Fright Night »

The Horror Channel has announced the return of the Hammer double features.

The season, which runs on Saturday nights from February 1 to 22 at 9pm, promises "vampire vixens, creepy castles, mouldy mummies, satanic sadists and Lee & Cushing on top show".
