50 Best Comic Book Movie Adaptations

1 September 2015 7:45 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

30. Lady Snowblood Part 1 and Part 2

While American comic books have struggled for legitimacy as adult entertainment for decades, their Japanese counterparts have long enjoyed acceptance as legitimate elements of mainstream culture. So while the American comic book movie only properly took off in the last fifteen years, jidaigeki adaptations of popular manga have been a staple of Japanese pulp cinema since the early 1970s. The best of these remains Lady Snowblood, director Toshiya Fujita’s two part revenge opera of a woman checking off a kill list of the gangsters who killed her family and left her for dead. Any familiarity to Kill Bill is entirely intentional, with multiple visuals, soundtrack elements and plot points lifted whole cloth by Tarantino. But even for those only familiar with the update, Fujita’s films remain feats of hard edged efficiency, actress Meiko Kaji a goddess of death in a world of opposing colors and sudden violence. »

Fright At Home: August 18th – Killer kids, Nomads, Alien Abductions and a whole lot of craziness!

18 August 2015 3:58 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

This week, for our Fright At Home column, we thought we’d try out something new. While we typically share the week’s newly released titles and give you a small rundown on what films are ones that you might want to check out, we thought it would be fun to switch it up a bit. We’re going to give you the DVD/Bluray art and the official synopsis for each film, but instead of writing small pieces on each film, this week we’re going to be featuring a video review of each film, so we can tell you in more detail about each film. It’s a test, so if you fright fanatics would rather have our usual format, sound off and let us know, and if you dig the new approach to Fright At Home, let us know that as well, because like it’s said in the video: ultimately, »

10 actors who finally embraced their campiest films

30 June 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Something amazing happened over the weekend: Elizabeth Berkley, who once riled us with caffeine melodrama as Jessie Spano on "Saved by the Bell," embraced a critical part of her past. She voiced support for the cult phenomenon of "Showgirls," her wildly over-the-top 1995 bomb that has become arguably the campiest piece of '90s iconography. She gave a wonderful speech to a rapt La audience, who rigorously salted their French fries in approval.  But not everybody can be as cool as Berkley. (Looking at you, Faye Dunaway.) Here are ten actors who've embraced the silly, dubious, or campiest movies in their filmography.  1. Jane Fonda, "Barbarella" After "Barbarella," Jane Fonda scored seven Oscar nominations, two wins, and a brand new reputation as one of the more strident celebrities of the '70s. It took her awhile to acknowledge the campy fun in "Barbarella," the swingin' sci-fi sex adventure she made her then-husband Roger Vadim, »

Arrow Video Bringing Pit Stop, La Grande Bouffe and Blood Rage To DVD/Bluray This June/August!

30 May 2015 2:17 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

For a good while, fans of Arrow Video’s amazing releases had to put their heads in the laps and cry while listening to Joy Division, due to the releases not being U.S. capable (unless you had an all region player or liked to be a hacker…like the girl in Jurassic Park…). Well, Arrow is a company that cares, and they’ve expanded their releases to the States, and I for one, have been doing jumping jacks nonstop over it (not really, I still have a gut dammit).

We were sent some information that made us quite excited, and if you’re one of the cool kids (blame my daughter for my using of that phrase, she is obsessed with that crazily catchy song), you’ll be excited as well!

On June 30th, Arrow is bringing Pit Stop, Jack Hill’s awesome followup to Spiderbaby (another film that »

It’s the start of a new month, and as ever in film and Blu-ray circles, nothing gets the fans salivating more than the upcoming release slate from the awesome folks over at Arrow Films. Its line-up of releases for August has been unveiled (both UK and Us), and you can view all the information below, including the stand-out title, David Cronenberg’s Videodrome, which is getting a very special, limited edition release in a collector’s package.

Videodrome: Limited Edition

Combining the bio-horror elements of his earlier films whilst anticipating the technological themes of his later work, Videodrome exemplifies Cronenberg’s extraordinary talent for making both visceral and cerebral cinema. Max Renn (James Woods) is looking for fresh new content for his TV channel when he happens across some illegal S&M-style broadcasts called ‘Videodrome’.

Voice actor Robert Rietti has died, aged 92.

Rietti was known for lending his voice to James Bond villains when filmmakers wanted to re-record lines.

According to The Times, Rietti died on April 3.

Among the villains he dubbed were Emilio Largo (Adolfo Celi) in 1965's Thunderball and Ernst Stavro Blofeld (John Hollis) in 1981's For Your Eyes Only.

Remembering Cat People Star Simon on 10th Anniversary of Her Death (Fully Revised/Updated Part I)

19 February 2015 7:53 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Simone Simon: Remembering the 'Cat People' and 'La Bête Humaine' star (photo: Simone Simon 'Cat People' publicity) Pert, pretty, pouty, and fiery-tempered Simone Simon – who died at age 94 ten years ago, on Feb. 22, 2005 – is best known for her starring role in Jacques Tourneur's cult horror movie classic Cat People (1942). Those aware of the existence of film industries outside Hollywood will also remember Simon for her button-nosed femme fatale in Jean Renoir's French film noir La Bête Humaine (1938).[1] In fact, long before Brigitte Bardot, Annette Stroyberg, Mamie Van Doren, Tuesday Weld, Ann-Margret, and Barbarella's Jane Fonda became known as cinema's Sex Kittens, Simone Simon exuded feline charm – with a tad of puppy dog wistfulness – in a film career that spanned two continents and a quarter of a century. From the early '30s to the mid-'50s, she seduced men young and old on both »
