Mayhem 2015: Jonathan Rigby To Narrate Long-Lost Dracula Script From Hammer Archive

14 August 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Now this sounds like a real treat for those attending the Mayhem Film Festival in Nottingham this October. Actor and Historian Jonathan Rigby will be narrating a long-lost Dracula script written by Hammer writer/producer Anthony Hinds. He will be joined on stage by a selection of actors to voice out the screenplay in front of an audience. What fun. Titled The Unquenchable Thirst of Dracula the script follows Count Dracula as he escapes to India 'where his evil influence is just as insidious and powerful'. Hinds wrote a few scripts for Hammer Films as John Elder: The Curse of the Werewolf (1961), The Phantom of the Opera (1962) and The Evil of Frankenstein (1964). This script was written some time around the late 60s, was never made into...

15 June 2015 7:37 PM, PDT | Best-Horror-Movies.com | See recent Best-Horror-Movies.com news »

Christopher Lee was born Christopher Frank Cardini in Belgravia England on May 27 1922. He served the Special Forces in World War 2 but has never discussed his role as he said he was bound an oath of secrecy. Though he began acting in the midforties in films like Hamlet and Moulin Rouge it wasnt until 1957 and 1958s The Curse of Frankenstein and The Horror of Dracula from Englands classic and prolific Hammer Studios that he began to achieve true notoriety. Both of these movies were huge successes and put the studio on the map as well as its two lead stars Peter Cushing (who play his adversary many times onscreen but was his close friend in real life) and Christopher Lee. »

The Last Great Horror Icon Is Gone: Where Are the Future Scare Masters?

13 June 2015 9:51 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 With the death of horror film legend Christopher Lee, the last of the legendary honor guard of horror has passed on. He was part of an elite group that created the horror genre. Lee’s passing is a reminder that it’s been a long time since we had a new horror film superstar. Is the day of the horror film specialist gone forever? Where are the big-screen boogie-men for the 21st century?

                             

Once upon a time there were a group of actors, known as the ‘screen boogiemen’ who created the horror film/monster movie genre (starting in Universal Studios and later in Hammer Studios.) They were specialists who understood the psychology and performance style of horror cinema and became legends in the industry. The first was silent film star Lon Chaney Sr. (Phantom of the Opera, London After Midnight, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, the Unholy Three, the Monster, »

Two well-regarded, nonagenarian British performers have died in the last few days: 93-year-old Christopher Lee (June 7, '15), best known for his many portrayals of Dracula and assorted movie villains and weirdos, from the title role in The Mummy to Dr. Catheter in Gremlins 2: The New Batch. 91-year-old Ron Moody (yesterday, June 11), among whose infrequent film appearances was the role of Fagin, the grotesque adult leader of a gang of boy petty thieves, in the 1968 Best Picture Academy Award-winning musical Oliver!, which also earned him a Best Actor nomination.

Christopher Lee: Remembering An Elegant Master of the Macabre

11 June 2015 5:47 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

I met Christopher Lee only once, over dinner at the 2013 Locarno Film Festival, where he was due to receive a lifetime achievement award. But even one night with Lee, who died June 7, was something to treasure. At 91, he was a consummate raconteur, spinning tales from a 60-year career in which he had become the very embodiment of the sci-fi, horror and fantasy movies that seep into little boys’ brains and turn them into Tim Burton, Joe Dante, Peter Jackson or George Lucas. At one point, our conversation turned to the subject of “Star Wars,” and the climactic lightsaber battle between Lee’s Count Dooku and the diminutive Yoda in 2002’s “Attack of the Clones,” made when Lee was a mere 80. “I did all of my own dueling in that scene!” Lee exclaimed, adding that he could be found in the Guinness Book of Records as the actor with the most on-screen swordfights. »

'Dracula' and 'Lord of the Rings' Star Christopher Lee Is Dead at 93

11 June 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Legendary actor Christopher Lee has passed away at the age of 93. The beloved actor, who spent his earlier years frightening audiences in vintage Hammer horror movies like Dracula before going on to star as the central villain in major franchises like Lord of the Rings and Star Wars, died after being hospitalized due to respiratory problems. Your relationship with Lee's work probably depends on what era you grew up in. His career began in the mid-40s, with ongoing roles in classic gothic horror films like The Curse of Frankenstein (1957), Horror of Dracula (1958), The Mummy (1959), Crypt of the Vampire (1964) and more. These roles -- along with his iconic Dracula, a part he played well into the 1970s -- are what truly marked him as one of cinema's greatest...

Sir Christopher Lee Has Died. Rest in Peace.

11 June 2015 1:27 PM, PDT | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

Sir Christopher Lee Has Died At The Age of 93. The life and career of Christopher Lee is the stuff of legends. He was born to a member of the King’s Royal Rifle Corps and an Italian contessa. He volunteered to fly planes in World War II, and later hunted Nazi war criminals alongside the Raf. He had a life fit for a 1950s storybook that you’d think was far too exaggerated, way before being on-screen and imprinting his essence into our minds forever.

Christopher Lee was Dracula. He was Scaramanga, one of the greatest James Bond villains of all time. He was Saruman, the quintessential evil wizard in J.R. Tolkien’s masterpiece.  He was part of the Star Wars franchise. The list goes on an on, as Sir Christopher Lee is credited with 200 hundred film appearances on his filmography. That’s quite the work ethic.

This man really lived a full life, »

David Edelstein on Christopher Lee: ‘The Last Living Horror Icon’

11 June 2015 11:27 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Christopher Lee — Sir Christopher in his final years — was the last living horror icon in the mode of Lon Chaney Sr., Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Vincent Price, and Lee’s frequent co-star, Peter Cushing, and it was an association with which he only reluctantly made his peace. His Count Dracula in the 1958 Horror of Dracula (British title: Dracula) remains an indelible portrait, alternately totemlike and bestial, with a penchant for nuzzling his buxom female victims before savagely sinking his fangs into their throats, and it made him an international star — but in the sorts of films he always longed to escape. In interviews, he took every opportunity to quote artists on his versatility, among them Billy Wilder (for whom he appeared as Mycroft in The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes) and his The Lord of the Rings antagonist Sir Ian McKellen, who reportedly said that Lee’s avoidance »
