Q&A: Kyron Schon Recalls “Night Of The Living Dead”

23 hours ago | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Kyra Schon will be forever remembered as the doomed Karen Cooper in George A. Romero’s Night Of The Living Dead, but the enthusiastic Schon has layers of personality and charm that far supersede her famous character’s ghoulish aura. On the eve of an appearance at Chicago’s Sci-Fi Spectacular 2014 this weekend, the kind Schon took a few moments to provide Fangoria with her thoughts on what would have happened if everyone’s favorite zombiefied youngster had actually survived that initial onslaught in 1968.

16 April 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Not only did the Amando de Ossorio-directed 1971 flick Tombs of the Blind Dead kickstart a boom of Spanish horror films, but it also served as the starting off point for an entire franchise, collectively known as the Blind Dead series.

Tombs of the Blind Dead Synopsis

In 1971, director Amando de Ossorio created what horror fans worldwide consider to be Spain’s Night Of The Living Dead. In Ossorio’s nightmare vision, a legion of Knights Templar – executed horsemen whose eyes had been pecked out by crows – rise rotting from their graves, hunting only by sound in a quest for human flesh. The Blind Dead saga begins here, »

UK must prepare for the Birth Of The Living Dead

15 April 2014 11:23 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

A new documentary is on the way to UK DVD and we reckon it’s a must see for all fans of the godfather of Zombie, George A. Romero.In 1968 a young college drop-out named George A. Romero gathered an unlikely team - from Pittsburgh policeman, iron workers, housewives and a roller rink owner – to create a low budget horror film that would revolutionise the industry, and spawn a new flesh eating monster that endures to this day… that film was ‘’Night of The Living Dead". “Birth of the Living Dead”, is the story of how they managed to pull off the greatest guerrilla shoot of all time. This documentary includes exclusive new interviews with the godfather of zombie films George A. Romero himself, as well as brand new animations created by Gary Pullin. Put together with 60’s archival footage this film shows just how politically charged "Night’’ was, set »

9 April 2014 2:54 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We already told you that George A. Romero will be appearing at Texas Frightmare Weekend, but we have one more exciting piece of new for fans of Dawn of the Dead. The Alamo Drafthouse is teaming up with Texas Frightmare Weekend for a rare screening of the 1978 zombie classic, with George A. Romero, Tom Savini, David Emge, and Scott Reiniger in attendance.

‘Antisocial’ Blu-ray Review

9 April 2014 7:03 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Michelle Mylett, Cody Thompson, Adam Christie, Ana Alic, Romaine Waite | Written by Cody Calahan, Chad Archibald | Directed by Cody Calahan

[Note: With the film finally set for a home entertainment release next week, here's a reposting of my review of Antisocial from its UK debut at last years Frightfest]

It’s often been said that people today wander about the streets in a zombie-like state – with their faces buried in their phones texting their friends, tweeting and checking out who likes what on Facebook – oblivious to the outside world. But what if this reliance on technology, and social networks in particular, became societies downfall? What if the thing we shared online was more than just information? That’s the question posed by Antisocial.

Sitting somewhere between Night of the Living Dead, The Crazies and The Social Network, Antisocial sees five university friends gather at a house party to ring in the New Year. What they don’t know is the end really is nigh, as an epidemic has erupted outside and around the world. With nowhere else to turn, »

Dimension Films Wins Horror Pitch ‘Transference’

8 April 2014 8:42 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Material sales slowed the last two weeks while the town was preoccupied with vacations, but stuff is selling again. Yesterday, Dimension Films made a preemptive deal to acquire Transference, a horror pitch from scribes Brandon and Phillip Murphy. The movie is in the spirit of Night Of The Living Dead and World War Z, where residents of a small Bible belt town grapple with the onset of a global outbreak of demonic possession that spreads like virus. Not sure if this fits into Hollywood’s fixation on faith-based fare, but if there are plodding dead guys eating the flesh of slow moving townsfolk like the films that inspired this project, combined with some demonic possession, I am there. The duo most recently sold their horror spec The Bringing to Sony. They are repped by Wme and Mosaic. »

10 directors who made belated returns to their franchises

3 April 2014 1:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Top 10 Ryan Lambie 4 Apr 2014 - 06:26

From Francis Ford Coppola to George Miller, we take a look at 10 directors who made belated returns to the franchises they created...

There's nothing new about directors returning to the stories and characters they first brought to the screen years before. Director Fritz Lang directed his first film featuring the mesmeric master of disguises Doctor Mabuse in 1922; he then returned to make The Testament Of Dr Mabuse in 1933, before heading back one final time for The Thousand Eyes Of Dr Mabuse in 1960 - the director's last film.

In recent years, however, it's become increasingly common for directors to return to the film series they began years earlier. It's an attempt, perhaps, to return to themes that still interest them, or to tell a new story in the same landscape as before, or maybe because of a Hollywood deal too lucrative to turn down. As the selection below proves, »

Exclusive Interview With Tom Savini And Alexandre O. Philippe On Doc Of The Dead

23 March 2014 10:11 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A long, long time ago, when The Walking Dead was just a phrase and zombie movies only had a cult following, George A. Romero came along and created one of the most iconic horror movies in history – The Night Of The Living Dead. Many people consider this title to be where the zombie genre was created, marching forward in time towards becoming an unstoppable pop culture juggernaut, but that’s not Entirely true. Yes, The Night Of The Living Dead really put zombies on the map, but variations of Romero’s creatures existed for years beforehand – something you’ll learn by watching a documentary called Doc Of The Dead.

Filmmaker Alexandre O. Philippe (The People Vs. George Lucas) has been watching zombies claw their way into every aspect of our daily lives, and he found it necessary to properly educate audiences on how zombies became the iconic figures that they now stand as. »

'Psych': Bruce Campbell and Dule Hill say 'Nightmare on State Street' has too many horror references to count

19 March 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Psych's" penultimate episode, "A Nightmare on State Street," is in line with all of the USA comedy's best scary episodes, like "Mr. Yin Presents" and "Tuesday the 17th." In fact, it's full of more horror movie homages and references than one can count.

One of the biggest homages is the casting of horror movie legend Bruce Campbell ("Evil Dead," "Army of Darkness") as Dr. Ashford Simpson -- a "full-of-c*** dream therapist," Campbell tells Zap2it -- whom Campbell, as a "Burn Notice" alum, was excited to play for his fellow USA show.

"I was like, 'Where do I sign?'" says Campbell. "I ran into [stars Dulé Hill and James Roday] at all these events because I was on 'Burn Notice' and they were on 'Psych,' and actors always say, 'Let's work together,' but I actually watch their show, I love it. The tone is like nothing else. I love the humor »

SXSW 2014: Ranking All 25 Movies We Saw at This Year's Festival

17 March 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Given the subarctic winter we've been experiencing in the Northeast this year, South by Southwest (SXSW), which takes place annually in balmy Austin, Texas, was something we were looking forward to even more than usual. Warm weather, spicy Mexican food, and the hottest movies imaginable all added to create a thoroughly thawing experience.

There wasn't a single Omg-you-have-to-see-this movie like there was last year, when "Short Term 12" made its debut, but the festival's lineup was quietly powerful, full of movies that were easy to miss, but at your own peril. There were a handful of loud, shout-y debuts, but some of those missed the mark completely, leaving room for the smaller movies to reach in and steal my heart.

So, a rundown of all of the movies we saw at SXSW -- some were odious, some were wonderful, but all of them we were very happy to watch... and »

Tom Savini Explains The Enduring Appeal of Zombies, In Film and On TV

14 March 2014 9:13 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Tom Savini is a great guy to talk zombies with. The horror legend has worked as an actor and director (who remade "Night of the Living Dead" in 1990), but is best known for his special effects and makeup work on films like George A. Romero's seminal "Dawn of the Dead" and "Day of the Dead." Savini's one of the interviewees in "Doc of the Dead," a new documentary from "The People vs. George Lucas" director Alexandre O. Philippe that explores the evolution of the zombie on screen, from its early days in features like the Haiti-set "White Zombie" through Romero's "Night of the Living Dead" through to the AMC juggernaut that is "The Walking Dead." The film explores the appeal of the animated undead by way of interviews with folks like Savini and Romero as well as actors Bruce Campbell and Simon Pegg and writers Max Brooks and Robert Kirkman. »

Dlc Review: ‘Dead Rising 3: Fallen Angel’

13 March 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Another month, another installment in Dead Rising 3’s “Untold Stories of Los Perdidos.”  Last month’s “Operation Broken Eagle” was a fun-but-flawed addition to the game, focusing not on new series hero Nick Ramos, but on the stunningly generic special ops soldier Adam Kane, which stripped almost all of the personality from a lighthearted game and made it grim and gritty…and not really in a good way.  However, it still deserved a look simply for being more Dead Rising 3, flawed or not.

Unfortunately, the trend continues in the second “Untold Story,” the ominously titled “Fallen Angel.”  Going to the opposite side of the coin, the “illegal” Angel Quijano is the focal point, and this Dlc seems to fall into similar issues as its predecessors, but in a completely different way.

In the world of Dead Rising 3, those who have been infected with the zombie virus are forced to get “chipped, »

iZOMBIE TV Series Cast Revealed

12 March 2014 3:26 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Back in November, we reported that a TV series based on DC’s iZOMBIE was in the early stages of development. The project has been given a pilot order by The CW and we now know who make up the main cast. This series will be set up as a crime procedural based on the comic book series that started in 2010 from Chris Roberson and Michael Allred:

“Gwen Dylan is a gravedigger in an eco-friendly cemetery…and a zombie detective. Once a month, she has to eat a human brain – both to keep from going all “Night of the Living Dead,” and to keep her own memories intact. As a result, Gwen’s mind is crowded with the dead person’s thoughts. And lately, she feels compelled to fulfill their final requests. Torn between a mysterious mummy and a dashing young monster-hunter, Gwen is set for adventures beyond imagination! »

Fearnet Movie Review: 'Doc of the Dead' [SXSW 2014]

12 March 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Anyone who sets out to make a documentary film about the history of zombie cinema is in a no-win situation: if you stick with the obvious stuff, then the hardcore horror fans will get bored, impatient, and very annoyed. But if you focus mainly on the oddest and most obscure information regarding cinematic zombiedom, then you're leaving out all the newbies -- or the geeks who only pretend to know White Zombie from Rob Zombie.

  Fortunately the movie-obsessed documentarian Alex Philippe -- his film The People vs. George Lucas is recommended to any hardcore Star Wars nut -- knows how to cover a lot of bases in a short amount of time, and the result is a light and amusing film about some of the grossest movies you'll ever see.    Without rattling off all the statistics, let's just say that Mr. Philippe and his team manage to touch on all »
