‘Mom and Dad’ Review: Nicolas Cage Goes Nuts in Cartoonish Zombie Thriller — Tiff

18 September 2017 11:51 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If “Night of the Living Dead” and “Spun” had a demented lovechild, it would look something like Brian Taylor’s “Mom and Dad.” While that’s all the better us, the actual kid would be getting a real bum deal.  Unfortunately for that demented lovechild, if born into Taylor’s twisted world, it would soon find its two beloved parents fighting tooth and nail to kill it.

Marking his first effort as solo writer-director, Taylor has lost none of the tweaked-out, live-wire intensity he brought to his work with collaborator Mark Neveldine. “Mom and Dad” has the same depraved verve, sick humor and berserk pulse of the “Crank” series, and what’s more, marries all that to an operatic Nicolas Cage performance in full on nutzoid mode. But more than the fervid cartoon violence and Cage’s rococo line readings, the film’s greatest asset lies in its simple, cold-blooded »

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Ravenous’

15 September 2017 5:52 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The zombie apocalypse subgenre has proven sufficiently durable and extensive to encompass everything from traditional horror to romantic comedy, sociopolitical metaphor to knockabout farce. But it’s doubtful that any previous movie or TV drama about the voracious undead has deserved the label of “contemplative” as much as writer-director Robin Aubert’s “The Ravenous” (“Les Affames”), an eerily melancholy horror story set in a contemporary Quebec countryside, where the line between life and death is relentlessly smudged and the survival instinct is repeatedly undermined by fatalistic resignation.

To be sure, Aubert plays by the rules of the game when it comes to establishing the particulars of his plot: Flesh-eating zombies of unknown origin infect or devour humans; the creatures can be terminated only with bullets to the head or through the energetic application of sharp instruments; an increasingly desperate and gradually dwindling group of survivors take their last best shot at traveling toward a safe haven.

Tiff 2017 Interview: Writer/Director Robin Aubert on the Idyllic Horror of Les AFFAMÉS

14 September 2017 4:29 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Writer/director Robin Aubert’s zombie road movie Les Affamés recently premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, and is set to make its Us premiere later this month at the 2017 Fantastic Fest in Austin. Daily Dead recently caught up with Aubert, and he discussed the inspiration behind his story, his ambitious approach to creating a compelling zombie film, keeping Les Affamés “all in the family,” and more.

Congrats on the film, Robin. I'd love to hear about what your approach to this story was, and bringing all these different characters together throughout the setting of this crazy outbreak.

Robin Aubert: It’s been a dream of mine always to write the zombie film. I really loved the film Night of the Living Dead as a kid. And I always want to do a zombie movie, but from my point of view. You know, when you do a zombie film it's weird, »

Why Night Of The Living Dead refuses to die

6 September 2017 10:08 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Though its initial release was nearly half a century ago, George A. Romero’s Night Of The Living Dead has had a tendency to rise from its grave every few years in the form of remakes, reboots, rip-offs, and homages. As it turns out, the reason this creative property refuses to stay down, and the reason zombie films…

Tobe Hooper’s Box-Office Struggles: How Shaky Returns Undercut A Visionary Director

29 August 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Tobe Hooper, who died over the weekend at 74, was a leader in the Vietnam-era boom in independent, ultra-violent horror films. His 1974 “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” is considered the last in a trio of low-budget horror breakouts that included George Romero’s 1968 “Night of the Living Dead” and Wes Craven’s 1972 “Last House on the Left.”

Though grosses for these films were unreliably reported, “Texas” appears to have done the best. Its reported $30 million domestic take (adjusted, around $140 million today) was at least 100 times its budget (also a guess, though some reports have it as high as $300,000 in 1974 value). Producers recouped costs and little else from distributor Bryanston (best known for the Andy Warhol and Paul Morrissey’s “Frankenstein” and “Dracula” movies, as well as taking over distribution of “Deep Throat”).

Like Romero and Craven, the hit boosted Hooper’s career. But unlike his peers, Hooper struggled to establish his brand after “Texas. »

‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ Director Tobe Hooper Dies at 74

29 August 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

The last few years have hit horror fans nearly as hard as they’ve hit comedy ones.  First was A Nightmare on Elm Street director Wes Craven’s unexpected death in 2015.  Then came splatter icon Herschell Gordon Lewis, the “Godfather of Gore,” in 2016.  Just last month, Night of the Living Dead director George A. Romero – who single-handedly brought zombies to the forefront of popular culture – after an aggressive bout of lung cancer. Now another horror icon has left us.  Tobe Hooper, best known for breathing life into the iconic Texas Chainsaw Massacre, has died of natural causes at

In Memoriam: director Tobe Hooper

Don Kaye Aug 29, 2017

The legendary director of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre has sadly died at the age of 74.

We're sad to report that filmmaker Tobe Hooper has passed away at the age of 74 in Sherman Oaks, California. The Austin, Texas native was best known for directing 1974’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, one of the greatest and most influential horror films ever made and one of several films - including 1968’s Night Of The Living Dead, 1972’s The Last House On The Left and 1975’s Shivers - that introduced a raw new intensity to the genre.

Rob Zombie on Tobe Hooper: 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre' Changed My Life

28 August 2017 8:23 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

I remember once reading about a conversation Orson Welles had with PeterBogdanovich about the fact that screen legend Greta Garbo only made tworeally good pictures out of 40.Orson's response was, "Well, you only need one."

Well, Tobe Hooper definitely had "the one." Sure, he made several pictureshorror fans remember fondly such as Poltergeist, The Funhouse and Salem'sLot. But “the one” he will be forever remembered for is The TexasChain Saw Massacre.Game changers arrive on the scene without warning – and in the early Seventies, this movie exploded on screen.

Writer and director best known for the 1974 film The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

There can be no argument as to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, the 1974 horror film about a group of teenagers who fall into the clutches of a psychopathic family, being one of the most pervasively disquieting films ever made. Its uniquely rotten, insidious flavour is the result of macabre production design, degraded cinematography, clammy lighting and a sophisticated and abrasive use of sound. Like George A Romero’s Night of the Living Dead and Wes Craven’s The Last House on the Left, the film used horror to express the discontentment of a country reeling from Vietnam and widespread social unrest. Fans included Ridley Scott (“It shocked the hell out of me”), Stanley Kubrick, who bought his own print, and William Friedkin, director of The Exorcist, who said it “transcended the [horror] genre”.

A Tribute to Tobe Hooper, Whose ‘Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ Was, and Is, the Horror Film of Its Time

27 August 2017 12:37 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The director Tobe Hooper, who died Saturday at 74, will always be remembered for one spectacularly terrifying low-budget horror film, and that’s because it happens to be one of the most uncanny movies ever made. When “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre” appeared on the landscape in 1974, the film instantly became famous; though relatively few people saw it, just hearing that title made you feel like you had. The film’s very existence was designed to give you a shudder.

Yet for those who did venture out to experience it (those numbers grew impressively as time went on), “Texas Chain Saw” turned out to be something nearly unimaginable: a haunting and indelible dream of terror in the form of a meat-hook exploitation film. It was the wildest nightmare that the movies had ever seen, all built around the image of Leatherface, a mentally disabled grunting mute psycho wearing a mask of human skin that he never took off »
