Killer Mermaids DVD Review

10 June 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Milan Todorovic

Cast:  Kristina KlebeFranco Nero, Natalie Burn and Dragan Micanovic

Certificate: 18

Running Time: 94 min

There is a perfectly good reason why film reviews exist folks, and that is to fish out golden works of filmmaking. Like fishing, you do tend to find bits of trash like empty tins and bottles. Killer Mermaids is certainly that kind of film title (c’mon, mermaids that kill!) that hooks your attention, but turns out to be a disappointing find.

It shouldn’t be ignored that this is actually part of film history, as it is Serbia’s first-ever creature feature to be made. Director Milan Todorovic also made the first Serbian zombie film, Zone of the Dead in 2009, which did not get good reviews at the time of its release. Not the best start for Serbian film, but its an achievement nonetheless – a starting point to get better…then they made Killer Mermaids! »

Italian cult films ‘Django’ and Dario Argento’s ‘Suspiria’ to be adapted for television

8 April 2015 9:40 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Two international producing companies, France’s Atlantique Productions and Italy’s Cattleya, have joined forces to co-develop and produce television adaptations of two cult Italian film properties.

According to Slashfilm, the two companies intend to adapt the spaghetti western icon Django based from Sergio Corbucci’s original film and Italian horror film classic Suspiria by Dario Argento which was inspired by the 1845 novel Suspiria De Profundis by Thomas De Qunicey. The companies intend for both shows be in English language and to produce twelve episode seasons with a running time up to 50 minutes per episode with the hope for multiple seasons.

The concept of Django seems well-suited for a television adaptation, being that the character of Django has become an icon of the western landscape much like a James Bond (in spy films) or a Batman (in the superhero genre), where the performer of the character has become secondary to the legend. »

'Django' And 'Suspiria' TV Shows In Development

8 April 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It seems, these days, television executives aren't taking meetings with young writers to hear new pitches. Instead, they're just looking to see what properties are still out there that might have a viable idea for a series. Which leads us to two cult movies getting thrown into the TV show development pile. Screen Daily reports that French and Italian producers Atlantique Productions and Cattleya are teaming up to bring Sergio Corbucci's Franco Nero-starring spaghetti western, "Django," and Dario Argento's horror classic, "Suspiria," to the small screen. Both titles have swirled around recently in the pop culture sphere, the former as one of the key influences on Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" (Franco Nero even had a small role), while David Gordon Green tried to mount a remake of Argento's, only to see it fall apart. So what will these shows bring to the table? Read More: 10 Movies »

'Django' and Dario Argento's 'Suspiria' Getting Classy TV Series Remakes

8 April 2015 9:23 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

In a watershed deal for the Italian television industry, two production companies have inked a development and production pact to turn the spaghetti western "Django" and the Dario Argento-directed occult horror film "Suspiria" into international TV series. French television producer Atlantique Productions and top Italian indie production company Cattleya will first re-imagine Sergio Corbucci's 1966 western — which of course spawned Quentin Tarantino's own homage, the slave revenge western "Django Unchained," along with a bevy of sequels and spinoffs— "with the grit and edginess of modern television dramas," per a press release. The overseas producers will then jump into the "smart horror" parade with "Suspiria De Profundis," from the 19th century Thomas De Quincey novel that influenced Dario Argento's stylish, seminal 1977 giallo horror. Though directors, showrunners and casts have yet to be unveiled, Argento will serve as »

Sergio Corbucci's Django Heads For TV

8 April 2015 8:16 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Sorry, Quentin Tarantino fans, but the characters from Django Unchained are not headed for our telly boxes any time soon, at least outside of the movie showing on Netflix etc. Still, a French TV company wants to turn the idea of the 1966 inspiration for Qt’s film and a version of Dario Argento’s Suspiria into TV series.Django would reimagine Sergio Corbucci's cult 1960s Western, which helped turn Franco Nero into an icon and saw the coffin-dragging gunslinger take on a bandit chief. The concept was potent enough to spawn sequels, spin-offs and homages, which included Tarantino’s 2012 effort. It will be an English-language show with plans for an initial season of 12 episodes running 50 minutes each and, if successful, multiple follow-ups.There’s a similar hope for Suspiria, which would transform 19th century writer Thomas De Quincey’s Suspiria De Profundis into a series, working from the same »

"Suspiria" TV Movie In The Works

8 April 2015 7:29 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

TV series adaptations of both the Dario Argento supernatural classic "Suspiria" and Sergio Corbucci's cult 1966 western "Django" are reportedly in development over at France's Atlantique Productions and Italy's Cattleya.

Both shows would be English-language and score an initial season of twelve hour-long episodes with potential follow-up seasons.

"Django" is described as a re-imagining of the story of first film, about a coffin-dragging gunslinger’s feud with a bandit chief. That film spawned numerous sequels and homages including Tarantino's "Django Unchained".

"Suspiria De Profundis" will be a new adaptation of Thomas De Quincey's novel of the same name which inspired Argento's 1977 masterpiece. Argento himself will serve as the series' artistic supervisor.

Whilst Argento's film was psychadelic supernatural tale set in a remote Bavarian dance academy which turns out to be a coven, the new series will be set in London and Rome at the turn of the 20th century »

France’s Atlantique Productions and Italy’s Cattleya enter into two-title co-development and production deal

French drama producer Atlantique Productions and Italian outfit Cattleya have secured a co-development and co-production agreement to turn 1960s Western Django and Dario Argento’s Suspiria into TV series.

The second, Suspiria De Profundis, is inspired by the 19th century English writer Thomas De Quincey’s eponymous book, which was made into the classic Italian horror film Suspiria in 1977 by Dario Argento. Argento will serve as the series’ artistic supervisor.

Quentin Tarantino Lists His Top 20 Spaghetti Westerns of All Time

26 March 2015 3:13 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

When I first heard about this list this morning I could have sworn it was old news, but as it turns out, this list of Quentin Tarantino's top 20 spaghetti westerns is a new thing as presented to us bt Spaghetti-Western.net. What I must have been thinking of was a list of spaghetti westerns that influenced Tarantino's Django Unchained, some of which are repeated here such as Sergio Corbucci's The Great Silence (read an essay I wrote on this one here) and the obvious, Django, and Giulio Petroni's Death Rides a Horse. However, this list is more than that and more than just Sergio Leone and Corbucci titles, though those two do make up eight of the twenty films on Tarantino's list. I haven't looked to see how many of the more obscure titles listed here are available on Netflix, but I have a feeling now that »
