Exclusive Interview with What We Do In The Shadows’ Jemaine Clement

20 July 2015 12:47 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Bloody, funny, and made for lovers of classic vampires by fans of the genre, What We Do in the Shadows is already one of my favorite horror comedies. With the movie coming out on Blu-ray and DVD on July 21st, I had a chance to catch up with Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords), who co-wrote, co-directed, and starred in the vampire mockumentary. 

For those that didn't know, What We Do in the Shadows started off as a short film and we talked about the process of turning it into a full feature, his first vampire movie memory, possibilities of a sequel, and more:

The Blu-ray version of the film includes your original short film that you released in 2006. Why did this particular idea stick with you long enough to make a feature film out of it?

Jemaine Clement: Well, there was a funding initiative by the New Zealand »

The Last Great Horror Icon Is Gone: Where Are the Future Scare Masters?

13 June 2015 9:51 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 With the death of horror film legend Christopher Lee, the last of the legendary honor guard of horror has passed on. He was part of an elite group that created the horror genre. Lee’s passing is a reminder that it’s been a long time since we had a new horror film superstar. Is the day of the horror film specialist gone forever? Where are the big-screen boogie-men for the 21st century?

                             

Once upon a time there were a group of actors, known as the ‘screen boogiemen’ who created the horror film/monster movie genre (starting in Universal Studios and later in Hammer Studios.) They were specialists who understood the psychology and performance style of horror cinema and became legends in the industry. The first was silent film star Lon Chaney Sr. (Phantom of the Opera, London After Midnight, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, the Unholy Three, the Monster, »

R.I.P. Christopher Lee – Here Are His Ten Best Roles

11 June 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The day monster kids have dreaded for some time has arrived. Mournful, nostalgic, and melancholy – it’s the end of an era for more than one generation of horror fans.  It seemed like Christopher Lee would live through all eternity, but unlike some of the characters he played, there’s no bringing him back to life this time. He made it to 93 and went out on a high note, appearing in the final Hobbit film just this past winter. He had an amazing career of fantastic performances and remains the greatest villain actor in film history. Rip to the last classic horror star and thank you for all the monster memories.

Christopher Lee was married to his wife Birgit (Gitte) for 54 years.

Here, according to Movie Geeks Jim Batts, Dana Jung, Sam Moffitt, and myself, are Christopher Lee’s ten best roles.

It’s only fitting that The Curse Of Frankenstein, »

Prolific British actor Sir Christopher Lee dies at age 93

11 June 2015 8:17 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Christopher Lee, an actor who brought dramatic gravitas and aristocratic bearing to screen villains from Dracula to James Bond enemy Scaramanga, has died at age 93.

Lee appeared in more than 250 movies, including memorable roles as the wicked wizard Saruman in The Lord of the Rings trilogy and the evil Count Dooku in two of George LucasStar Wars prequels. But for many he will forever be known as the vampire Count Dracula in a slew of "Hammer Horror" movies - the gory, gothic thrillers churned out by the British studio in the 1950s and 1960s that became hugely popular.

He railed against the typecasting, however, and ultimately the sheer number and range of his roles - from Sherlock Holmes to the founder of Pakistan - secured his place in film history.

"I didn't have dreams of being a romantic leading man," Lee told The Associated Press in 2002. "But I »

Christopher Lee, Actor Who Made Dracula Count Again, Dies at 93

11 June 2015 5:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Christopher Lee, the second most famous Dracula of the 20th century — an impressive feat — and a memorably irrepressible villain in James Bond film “The Man With the Golden Gun,” in the Star Wars films and in “The Lord of the Rings” pics, has died. He was 93.

Lee appeared in 10 films as Count Dracula (nine if his uncredited role in the comedy “One More Time” is excluded).

His first role for famed British horror factory Hammer Films was not the Transylvanian vampire, however, but Frankenstein’s Monster in 1957’s “The Curse of Frankenstein.” His close friend Peter Cushing, with whom he would co-star in horror films frequently, starred as the Baron.

Lee made his first appearance as the sharp-toothed Count in 1958’s “Horror of Dracula.”

For reasons not quite certain, he skipped the 1960 sequel “Brides of Dracula,” but he returned to the role for 1965’s “Dracula: Prince of Darkness” — a movie »
