Win tix to "Hatchet For The Honeymoon" in Toronto; meet Stephen Forsyth!

23 October 2012 6:20 AM, PDT | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

Bava’s bizarre 1970 psychodrama Hatchet For The Honeymoon is one of his few masterworks that remains less celebrated, and that’s a shame, because it’s a triumph of style, satire and bizarre, obsessive imagery. Fangoria and Toronto’s Revue Cinema (499 Roncesvalles Avenue) will present a special screening of Hatchet Wednesday, October 24 at 9 p.m., and are honored to have as special guest for the evening revered pianist, artist and composer Stephen Forsyth, who starred as Hatchet’s murderous, mentally unbalanced lead and was a major star in Italy during the 1960s, starring in several high-profile, violent spaghetti Westerns and thrillers. Fango editor Chris Alexander will sit down with Forsyth for an in-depth discussion dissecting Bava’s unique directing approach and reflecting on those long-gone, never-forgotten days when the internationally exported genre cinema was king.

Exclusive: Interview with Legendary Italian Director Lamberto Bava

5 October 2012 9:52 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Interviewed by Michael Juvinall, MoreHorror.com

I recently had the immense pleasure of sitting down face-to-face with the famed Italian horror director, Lamberto Bava.  Bava’s films are primarily in the horror, giallo, and fantasy genres. 

Bava is the son of the legendary Italian director, Mario Bava and grandson of Eugenio Bava, a special effects artist and director from the silent days of Italian cinema.  He grew up on the sets of his father’s films, learning all that he could about the business.  He worked for 15 years under his father as his personal assistant, assistant director, and screenwriter on such films beginning with Planet of the Vampires (1965), Kill Baby, Kill (1966), Danger: Diabolik (1968), Hatchet for the Honeymoon (1970), Twitch of the Death Nerve (1971), Baron Blood (1972), and Lisa and the Devil (1974). 

Bava then began working with Ruggero Deodato on his infamous Jungle Holocaust (1977) and Cannibal Holocaust (1980) films, then with Dario Argento as »

Mario Bava’s Black Sunday And More Coming To Blu-ray From Kino/Redemption Sept 18th!

13 August 2012 11:52 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The beginning of this year home video label Kino partnered with Redemption Films and has since been reissuing remastered Blu-ray & DVDs of some of the finest and trashiest Euro films to ever grace the screen and now, in some cases for the first time in America! Chock full of Bonus Features, Kino/Redemption has been pumping these releases out non-stop every month with much focus going towards lavish releases dedicated to the films of Jean Rollin (The Nude Vampire, Fascination, etc). To be blunt, these are most-own discs fellow cult enthusiasts and you shouldn’t hesitate to add these to your collection.

Kino/Redemption recently just made a major announcement concerning a library acquisition of a certain Italian filmmaking legend; Mario Bava! Come September 18th, horror classics like Black Sunday, Hatchet For The Honeymoon and a double feature containing The House Of Exorcism/Lisa And The Devil will be making »

The Forgotten: The Place of the Skull

24 July 2012 2:39 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Valerio Zurlini, writer-director, is someone I find a little hard to pin down: a career which contains both Girl with a Suitcase (1961), in which prostitute/aspiring actress Claudia Cardinale becomes houseguest of a teenage boy (but it's Not like Risky Business) and Desert of the Tartars (1976), an existential historical epic based on a novel which David Lean had planned to film at one point. What initially seems to unite the work is a rare seriousness: Zurlini is earnest, almost humorless, and at times despairing.

The strikingly titled Black Jesus (1968 - the Italian title translates, more subtly, as Sitting on His Right) is a good example of Zurlini's willingness to follow a story into the darkest places. It's based blatantly on the true story of Patrice Lumumba, the first legally elected Congolese leader, who was deposed, tortured and assassinated under the watchful eye of the Un, and with the probable connivance of the Us and Belgium. »
