Vincent Price: The British Connection

11 April 2014 7:03 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

As the undisputed king of American gothic, Vincent Price holds a unique position regarding his association with British horror. From the mid sixties, nearly all his films were made in the UK, and while not as distinguished as The House of Usher (1960), Tales of Terror (1962) and The Raven (1963), they are not without interest. As an actor perfectly suited to English gothic, Price’s output includes two career-defining performances. In a nutshell, he had the best of both worlds.

Masque of the Red Death (1964)

The British phase of his career began with a bang. After directing all of Price’s Poe chillers for American International Pictures, Roger Corman wanted to give the formula a fresh approach by making his next film in England. Aip’s Samuel Z Arkoff and James H Nicholson had already produced several European films, so the next step was to establish a London base with Louis M Heyward in charge. »

Revisiting Edgar Allan Poe's Classic Poem 'The Raven'

4 April 2014 | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

In January, BoingBoing featured a piece on the The Library of Congress scans of artwork from an original print of Edgar Allan Poe's poem "The Raven."     These scans bring to vivid life one of Poe's most famous and beloved works. "The Raven" is a familiar tale of love, loss, mourning and insanity. It was no secret that Poe was something of a tortured individual, but his melancholy never stopped him from creatively and meticulously planning his works.     He was well-known for saying that writers should plan out their works ahead of time. In that respect he was a perfectionist and, like most writers, extremely critical of his own work. Whether or not one agrees with his belief that writers should always have a plan (or outline) before creating a story, poem or other written work, it is clear to see that "The Raven" is a great example of writing at its finest. »

Have you been watching ... The Following?

4 March 2014 2:54 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Sky Atlantic crime drama is the flipside to the more highbrow True Detective – full as it is of garrottings, good-looking psychopaths and Kevin Bacon's face

The Following star James Purefoy's favourite TV

Kevin Bacon is a special human being. Not only can he be connected to everyone on the planet in six moves, he can also dance like Nureyev, even while wearing stonewashed denim. He's magical. His face is so familiar and reassuring that doctors ought to show a picture of it to patients just before they're wheeled into the operating theatre. And now you can gaze upon it every Tuesday night.

The Following, now halfway through its second season, is the story of serial killer-cum-cult-leader-cum-swarthy-stud Joe Carroll and his merry band of psychopathic followers, as they are relentlessly pursued by Bacon's maverick (what else?) FBI agent Ryan Hardy.

In the first series, Carroll, a university lecturer »

I Am Legend: The Greatest Vampire Movie Never Made

5 January 2014 4:25 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The death of Richard Matheson on 22 June 2013 marked the end of an amazing career as a novelist and screenwriter. His most enduring legacy will always be as the author of I Am Legend, arguably one of the finest vampire novels ever written. Considered ‘the very peak of paranoid science fiction,’ Matheson’s groundbreaking debut novel is one of the few contemporary vampire stories that came close to the literary excellence of Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

With plans of a sequel to the Will Smith misfire I Am Legend (2007) being seriously considered by filmmakers, there is only one thing that fans of Matheson’s outstanding post apocalyptic work are asking “when is there going to be a Proper film version of the book?”

Published in 1954, I Am Legend tells the terrifying tale of Robert Neville, the sole survivor of a mysterious airborne virus that has turned everyone, including his wife Virginia and best friend Ben Cortman, »
