NYC Weekend Watch: Nyff Revivals, Harry Dean Stanton, Chinatown Cinema & More

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Film Society of Lincoln Center

Films by Costa, Hou, Renoir, and Varda screen as part of “Nyff Revivals.” Also part of Nyff is a 24-film Robert Mitchum retrospective.

Iffr: 4k restoration of Spike Lee classic 'She's Gotta Have It' in the works
Prolific TV director Ernest Dickerson - who’s helming the project - was talking about his upcoming films at Rotterdam.

Drive-In Dust Offs: Die, Monster, Die! (1965)

  • DailyDead
By the mid ‘60s, the glory days of Boris Karloff were far behind him. The gentle giant forever known as the screen’s original (and best) Frankenstein monster was relegated to appearing in disappointing quickies that squandered his immense talents. However, there were some twilight standouts: Mario Bava’s Black Sabbath (1963), a couple of animated delights, How The Grinch Stole Christmas! (1966) and Mad Monster Party? (1967), and his dignified portrayal of an aging horror star in Peter Bogdanovich’s debut, Targets (1968). Nestled in between (and often shown the door) was Daniel Haller’s Die, Monster, Die! (1965), an early, colorful, and fun foray into the world of H.P. Lovecraft.

Released by Aip in the Us in October on a double bill with Planet of the Vampires (Bava again), Die rolled out to theatres and drive-ins across the land, but had to wait until February to be released in England under the ghastly

The ninth annual Drive-in Super Monster Rama was staged – as is traditional - on the weekend following Labor Day at the Riverside Drive-in, Vandergrift, Pennsylvania. Inaugurated in 2007, this fiendish gathering of monster-movie insomniacs is tailored to those who cherish the classic horror films of the 1960s and 1970s. It’s a thoughtfully programmed and purposely retro affair; fans get to experience (or re-experience) their favorites as they might have when the movies were new – in the witching hour setting of an authentic neighborhood drive-in theater.

With each passing year the Monster Rama grows steadily in attendance and flourishes in reputation. In 2013 the annual gathering spawned a mid-spring sister event, the April Ghoul’s Drive-in Monster Rama. Co-sponsored from inception by George Reis (of the preeminent cult

The Bottom Shelf: Festive Vincent Price/Roger Corman Special

  • Den of Geek
What will horror fans be watching this Christmas? Nick's got some ideas

The phrase “camp as Christmas” seems the only appropriate way to describe this month’s festive special as we take a look at the Blu-ray release of six Edgar Allan Poe adaptations combining the formidable talents of the great Vincent Price and the glorious “King of B-Movies”, Roger Corman.

Filmed relatively early in Corman’s incredibly prolific sixty-year career (over 400 movies produced, more than fifty films directed and he’s even starred in thirty-odd to boot!), this month’s Six Gothic Tales boxset covers all but one of his and Price’s early 60s Poe-themed Aip productions, from the morose The Fall Of The House Of Usher right through to 1964’s UK-based The Tomb Of Ligeia.

The first thing to note is the difficulty in believing the man responsible for Inhumanoid, Subliminal Seduction and the upcoming Sharktopus

Blu-ray Review – Six Gothic Tales

Robert W Monk reviews Six Gothic Tales, a Blu-ray collection of the Roger Corman directed and produced adaptations of the Edgar Allen Poe stories The Fall of the House of Usher, The Pit and the Pendulum, Tales of Terror, The Raven, The Haunted Palace, The Tomb of Ligeia, starring Vincent Price, Barbara Steele, Peter Lorre, Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney Jr, Jack Nicholson and Basil Rathbone

Synopsis:

In The Fall of the House of Usher, a young man attempts to uncover the threat of a curse on his fiancée’s family. In Pit and the Pendulum, a brother investigates the untimely death of his sister, played by Barbara Steele. Tales of Terror adapts three Poe classics, Morella, The Black Cat and The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar, each starring a horror icon. The Raven is a slapstick comedy about three rival magicians linked by Poe’s most famous poem.

‘Vincent Price in Six Gothic Tales’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

Christmas is almost here and Arrow Video have a present for horror fans (though you’ll have to buy it of course). Vincent Price in Six Gothic Tales is a box set of the Roger Corman Edgar Allan Poe films starring not only Price but some of the most iconic horror actors. Just mentioning the names Barbara Steele, Peter Lorre, Lon Chaney Jr., Boris Karloff and Basil Rathbone in the same review as Vincent Price should have you getting your money ready straight away…and let’s not forget a young Jack Nicholson making an appearance too. All this movie history in just one box, and that’s before we even look at the special features included for each movie.

Roger Corman’s Poe movies are strange beasts though, normally taking only the name and basic plot they sometimes have little connecting them to the actual source material, yet as fans we love them anyway.

Bringing Hp Lovecraft to the big screen

  • Den of Geek
Just in time for Halloween, James considers the weird tales of Hp Lovecraft, and the ones that could make great films...

(Warning: this article contains spoilers for several H.P. Lovecraft stories and also contains material that may upset the balance of your sanity. "Tekeli-li! Tekeli-li!")

Dear readers, I am writing this under an appreciable mental strain since by tonight I may be no more. The end is near and soon will come the oblivion which is my only refuge from the unnamed and unnameable. Hallowmas has arrived and I hear the howling from that awful reef, the horrible croaking voices and the slippery bodies lumbering against the door.

The nauseous fishy odour seems to have mounted suddenly, the shrill whippoorwills have burst into a kind of pandaemoniac cachinnation which fills the countryside and I am certain that everything is coming to a head. Or, at least, a gibbering mockery of a head.

[Comic Execution] 5/16 – ‘Vincent Price: Night Terror’, ‘Mars Attacks: First Born’, ‘Tales From The Con: Year One’

I think it’s high time we start putting a premium on subtitles. Not the subtitles that you see in foreign films. I’m talking about when a book or a movie or a video game has the main title and also a secondary title that is deemed necessary for dumb audiences to figure out that it’s different from the previous, identically titled thing. For example; is it really necessary for every iteration of Bluewater Productions’ ‘Vincent Price Presents’ series to have a different subtitle? Can’t they all just be called ‘Vincent Price Presents’? This week’s column title was nearly a third of the work I did getting this thing published!

Actually, you know what? I’ve changed my mind. From now on, every week, I’m going to give Comic Execution a new subtitle. Give ‘em a taste of their own medicine. And you know what
