Frightfest 2015: ‘Bite’ Review

19 hours ago | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Elma Begovic, Jordan Gray, Annette Wozniak, Denise Yuen, Lawrene Denkers | Written by Chad Archibald, Jayme Laforest | Directed by Chad Archibald

Chad Archibald has been making quiet a name for himself in genre cinema (and in my movie collection) over the past few years, whether it’s producing awesome action movies like Bounty Hunters, starring WWE’s Trish Stratus; or more horrific fare like Hellmouth and the fantastic Antisocial. More recently Archibald has also directed a number of horror hits, including last years Frightfest film The Drownsman and this years cause célèbre, Bite. Which has, if you believe the hype, been causing a furore at screenings around the world, with walkouts and vomiting amongst other audience afflictions…

Bite tells the story of bride-to-be Casey, while on her hen party getaway to exotic Costa Rica, gets a seemingly harmless bite from an unknown insect while bathing in an idyllic jungle pool. »

Frightfest 2015: ‘Wind Walkers’ Review

28 August 2015 4:51 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Zane Holtz, Glen Powell, Kiowa Gordon, Philip Burke, Johnny Sequoyah, J. Larose, Rudy Youngblood, Castille Landon, Christopher Kriesa | Written and Directed by Russell Friedenberg

From the films from actor/writer/director Russell Friedenberg that I have seen, it seems – at least to me – like he has a fascination with three things: Native American culture; the human psyche and the personal demons we all have; and the idea of the stranger among us (even if that “stranger” is familiar to us). With Wind Walkers he combines all three subjects in a story that follows group of friends and family as they descend into the Everglades swamplands for their annual hunting trip, only to discover that they are the ones being hunted by a malevolent entity tracking them through the Everglades…

Now the idea of supernatural spirits is nothing new in Native American culture, or in horror movies. However Friedenberg poses »

'Fear the Walking Dead' Showrunner Reveals What Makes the Spinoff Different

23 August 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

As the co-creator and showrunner of "Fear the Walking Dead," it's Dave Erickson's task to build out the walker-fied world first envisioned by his collaborator Robert Kirkman -- the original creator of "The Walking Dead" comic book and television series -- by adhering to the established mythology while simultaneously layering on brand-new, never-seen-before characters and story elements.

No problem, right?

Thus far, many of "Ftwd's" opening gambits suggest Erickson's cracked the way in: the show's both a spinoff and a prequel, chronicling the earliest days of the zombie outbreak; it's set in densely urban Los Angeles, a far cry from the wide open Southern spaces of the main show; and at heart it's a family drama built around the struggles of two high school guidance counselors to keep their fracture families alive, literally and figuratively.

"We purposely built the show a little bit more slowly than the original," Erickson »

What Follows It Follows: An Interview with Director David Robert Mitchell and Score Composer Disasterpeace

21 August 2015 2:46 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

The Cinefamily Theatre in La has been known to turn up the spooky on Friday nights for their “Friday Night Frights” series. A few weekends ago, my current horror movie obsession, It Follows, was screened and Director David Robert Mitchell and Soundtrack Composer Disasterpeace (Rich Vreeland) made an appearance to answer questions and enjoy the show with fans.  I was lucky enough to catch up with them before the film and get a few of my questions answered.

Famous Monsters. Thank you so much for taking the time to meet with me! I am a Huge fan of the film and am dying to hear where the inspiration for this story came from.

David Robert Mitchell. Well I’d been thinking about trying to make a horror film for a long time. I love horror movies and I just wanted to make one. The base idea for this came from »

From Romero to 'Walking Dead': A Brief History of Zombies in Pop Culture

19 August 2015 8:29 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Think of a teeming metropolis like New York City. Now double that in size. If every single person who lived there, every hot-dog vendor, third-grader and euphoric Mets fan, was in fact a flesh-eating zombie, that would roughly equal the 17.3 million people that tuned into last October's fifth-season premiere of AMC's The Walking Dead, the most-watched episode of anything in cable history. Those are blockbuster numbers and they occurred week after week. The demand for the show has become so huge that a prequel spinoff, Fear the Walking Dead, debuts this Sunday. »

Blu-ray Review – Videodrome (1983)

17 August 2015 4:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Videodrome, 1983.

Directed by David Cronenberg.

Starring James Woods, Deborah Harry, Sonja Smits, Les Carlson, Peter Dvorsky and Jack Creley.

Synopsis:

A cable TV channel owner wants to broadcast ‘Videodrome’, the most extreme programme on the network, but discovers that the show is front for a sinister global conspiracy.

Videodrome was the right film at the right time for director David Cronenberg (The Brood/Rabid). Cronenberg’s previous two movies – 1979’s The Brood and 1981’s Scanners – had seen the director rise above the grimy aesthetic of his early works and the quality of his productions get smoother but still retain his core themes of body horror, mutation and disease, and with the burgeoning home video market bringing all sorts of fears about moral corruption into the media headlines, Cronenberg was at the right place in his career to make a statement in his own unique way.

A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night (2014)

Written by: Ana Lily Amirpour

Directed by: Ana Lily Amirpour

Cast: Sheila Vand (The Girl), Arash (Arash Marandi), Marshall Manesh (Hossein the Junkie), Mozhan Marno (Atti the Prostitute), Dominic Rains (Saeed the Pimp), Rome Shadanloo (Shaydah the Princess), Ray Haratian (The Boss), Pej Vahdat (DJ Porno), Ana Lily Amirpour (Skeleton Partygirl), Masuka (Masuka the Cat)

There are two things that have inhibited me in the past from broadening my horror film horizons. Those things would be subtitles and anything filmed in black and white. I’ve conquered my perceived drudgery of reading subtitles, and after many forced exercises to multitask my watching and reading simultaneously, I can get lost in a really good horror movie, and the subtitles come as second nature. I’m still struggling with the black and white. Even established classics such as “Night of the Living Dead »

BBC Culture curates 100 best American films, courtesy of 62 international film critics

22 July 2015 5:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

BBC Culture has this week unveiled a new list of the top 100 American films, as voted for by a pool of international film critics from across the globe. The format of the poll was that any film that would make the list had to have recieved funding from a Us source, and the directors of the films did not need to be from the USA, nor did the films voted for need to be filmed in the Us.

Critics were asked to submit their top 10 lists, which would try to find the top 100 American films that while “not necessarily the most important, but the greatest on an emotional level”. The list, as you may have guessed, is very different to the lists curated by say the BFI or AFI over the years, so there are certainly a few surprises on here, with Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave (2013), Terrence Malick »

Scratching our heads at the BBC's top 100 American Movies of All-Time

21 July 2015 5:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

First off, let's make one thing clear.  We're not scratching our heads at Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing" making the BBC's 100 greatest American films.  That movie, of which an image accompanies this post, not only made the list, but ranked appropriately at no. 25.  It's the rest of the selections that have us scratching and, yes, shaking our heads in disbelief. A wonderful page view driver, these sorts of lists make great fodder for passionate movie fans no matter what their age or part of the world they hail from.  There is nothing more entertaining than watching two critics from opposite ends of the globe try to debate whether "The Dark Knight" should have been nominated for best picture or make a list like this.  Even in this age of short form content where Vines, Shapchats and Instagram videos have captured viewers attention, movies will continue to inspire because »

'Citizen Kane' Tops BBC's List of "100 Greatest American Films", Where Does Your Favorite Landc

21 July 2015 11:46 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Leave it to the Brits to compile a list of the best American films of all-time. BBC Culture has published a list of what it calls "The 100 Greatest American Films", as selected by 62 international film critics in order to "get a global perspective on American film." As BBC Culture notes, the critics polled represent a combination of broadcasters, book authors and reviewers at various newspapers and magazines across the world. As for what makes an American filmc "Any movie that received funding from a U.S. source," BBC Culture's publication states, which is to say the terminology was quite loose, but the list contains a majority of the staples you'd expect to see. Citizen Kane -- what elsec -- comes in at #1, and in typical fashion The Godfather follows at #2. Vertigo, which in 2012 topped Sight & Sound's list of the greatest films of all-time, comes in at #3 on BBC Culture's list. »

BBC Names 100 Greatest U.S. Films

21 July 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Every now and then a major publication or news organisation comes up with a top fifty or one hundred films of all time list - a list which always stirs up debate, discussion and often interesting arguments about the justifications of the list's inclusions, ordering and notable exclusions.

Today it's the turn of BBC Culture who consulted sixty-two international film critics including print reviews, bloggers, broadcasters and film academics to come up with what they consider the one-hundred greatest American films of all time. To qualify, the film had to be made by a U.S. studio or mostly funded by American money.

Usually when a list of this type is done it is by institutes or publications within the United States asking American critics their favourites. This time it's non-American critics born outside the culture what they think are the best representations of that culture. Specifically they were asked »

Comic-Con 2015: Fear The Walking Dead Interviews with Greg Nicotero and Dave Erickson

19 July 2015 2:35 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Closing out our coverage from Comic-Con, I have highlights from my interview session for Fear The Walking Dead. We're nearly a month away until the new series premieres and showrunner Dave Erickson clarifies how the timeline of the show fits into The Walking Dead, while Greg Nicotero confirms an expanded episode order for Season 2:

Makeup effects master and Executive Producer Greg Nicotero talks about growing up on zombie movies:

"When I grew up it was Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead. I loved zombie movies and I went to the theater, and I saw every single one of them. I snuck in and saw them. With The Walking Dead, we have 75 hours to tell a story. Now with Fear The Walking Dead, we have our first season of six hours, and you get to learn about these characters and you get to get into them. »

Comic-Con 2015: Dr. Travis Langley Talks The Walking Dead Psychology: Psych Of The Living Dead

17 July 2015 12:35 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In 2012, Dr. Travis Langley took us inside the minds of Gotham's protectors and tormentors in Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Knight. Now, along with a team of expert contributors, Dr. Langley examines the mental effects of the zombie apocalypse in The Walking Dead Psychology: Psych of the Living Dead. At Comic-Con, Daily Dead caught up with Dr. Langley, who discussed further exploring the survivors of Robert Kirkman's living dead world, his upcoming book Star Wars Psychology: Dark Side of the Mind, and much more.

Dr. Langley on his longtime love of The Walking Dead:

Dr. Travis Langley: I've always been a fan of The Walking Dead from the very first issue. You can go back and find issues—I think it's #11, #13 and #17—and go to the letter column, you'll find letters by me where I was analyzing the stuff back then. I've always been analyzing it. »
