Martin Landau Has Passed Away

16 July 2017 6:38 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

July 16th will be remembered as a day when we lost two cinematic legends. Following the heartbreaking news of George A. Romero's passing, it's now been reported that actor Martin Landau has passed away at the age of 89.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Landau passed away at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center from "unexpected complications."

Nominated several times for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar (including for his work in Francis Ford Coppola's Tucker: The Man and His Dream and Woody Allen's Crimes and Misdemeanors), Landau played horror icon Bela Lugosi opposite Johnny Depp in Tim Burton's Ed Wood, a superb supporting performance that earned him the Oscar win.

In addition to Coppola, Allen, and Burton, Landau worked with the great Alfred Hitchcock in North by Northwest. He would go on to appear in The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, one of many guest-starring roles on genre television series, »

Hell in the Pacific

27 June 2017 8:35 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Class-act director John Boorman continues to mix genre grit with European-flavored art cinema, and the result is another winner. Toshiro Mifune and Lee Marvin fight a miniature two-man war when they’re marooned together on the same tiny island. Boorman’s strong direction and Conrad Hall’s knockout cinematography insure a maximum visual impact; it’s great filmmaking all around.

Farewell, Old Chum: Seminal Batman Adam West Dead at 88

10 June 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Adam West, the titular star of ABC's Batman television series that ran from 1966 - 1968 and left a defining mark on popular culture, passed away Friday, June 9th, from a battle with leukemia. The iconic thespian was eighty-eight years old. Born William West Anderson, West grew up in the town of Walla Walla, Washington before serving in the U.S. Army where he worked as an announcer for the American Forces Network -- considering the cadence of his voice, this is a supremely fitting start if you ask me. West then moved to Hawaii to pursue acting and subsequently appeared in early classic television such as Maverick, Lawman and The Outer Limits. At 37 he got his big break when producer Lorenzo Semple Jr. cast...
