"Stand and deliver, sir!" Dennis Hopper in Philippe Mora's Mad Dog Morgan.

Philippe Mora: Ballad Of A Mad Dog

By

Alex Simon

Born in Paris in 1949, Philippe Mora is a member of one of Australia’s best known artistic families. His parents, Georges Mora and Mirka Mora, migrated to Australia from France in 1951 and settled in Melbourne, where they quickly became key figures on the Melbourne cultural scene. Georges, a wartime resistance fighter, became an influential art dealer, and in 1967 he founded one of the first commercial art galleries in Melbourne, Tolarno Galleries. The Mora family home and restaurants were focal points of Melbourne's bohemian subculture. As a result of this, Philippe and his brothers had what he has described as a "culturally privileged childhood."

Philippe moved to London in late 1967 to pursue painting and filmmaking. He was one of many important Australian artists, writers and others who »

Dimiter (Advance Book Review)

21 December 2009 3:53 AM, PST | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

The novel, Dimiter, is an intriguing religious thriller about a group of characters engaged in a psychological battle between good and evil. Author William Peter Blatty captivated audiences before with The Exorcist and now returns to literary form after a long absence with his latest work. 

The action takes place during the 1970s in Albania, where a mysterious man has been held prisoner. To the interrogator, the man in the prison cell is nicknamed as “an agent of hell.” The captive has created many false personalities for himself and believes he is each one of them. The interrogator becomes frustrated with the detainee because he will not reveal his true identity, even after being physically tortured. No one is safe when the prisoner violently escapes and continues with his secretive mission.

The scenery then transfers itself to Jerusalem and the narration focuses on neurologist Moses Mayo and detective Peter Meral. »

Grow Your Own Drugs For Christmas and The Exorcist: The True Story | TV review

16 December 2009 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

All I want for Christmas is an anti-anxiety saffron egg-nog. And this man can help, says Tim Dowling

It sounds like an item from an optimistic list of holiday chores, but Grow Your Own Drugs For Christmas (BBC2) is, of course, a festive instalment of the natural remedy-making series fronted by ethnobotanist James Wong, a man in a perpetual state of amusement. This could be because he's chuffed to be on telly, or it could be because he grows his own drugs. He even chuckles to himself during his voiceovers. I imagined him sitting in a sound booth with headphones on, reading a script and chortling at the merriment of it all.

Wong wanted to show you "how to make your Christmas cheaper, healthier and more original than ever". I'm not sure you want your Christmas to be original: personally, I think the key to success lies in stifling consistency; also, »

A Conversation with Captain Howdy: The Fangoria Interview with Eileen Dietz

28 November 2009 7:01 PM, PST | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

With vast experience on stage and screen (big and small), Eileen Dietz' career has woven a path in-and-out of the horror genre. While horror fans will no doubt associate the actress with her role as the face of evil in William Friedkin's Oscar-winning 1973 film The Exorcist, Dietz has many stories to tell. Fangoria's Australian correspondent Lee Gambin recently sat down for a one-on-one interview to discuss her career and craft.

Lee Gambin/Fangoria: What were some of your very first jobs in the entertainment industry, as I understand you started super young and how did the Neighborhood Playhouse Theatre School benefit you as a young actress?

Eileen Dietz: I worked at a Summer Stock company in Kalamazoo Michigan. It was a very bad place and the director of the theatre only brought me up there to rob me of my innocence if you know what I mean. »

Dog Death Gave Coolidge An Edge As Cage's Mum

19 November 2009 1:56 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Animal lover Jennifer Coolidge has a personal tragedy to thank for turning her into the perfect wreck in Nicolas Cage's new drama Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans - her dog died a day before filming started.

The American Pie star was fighting to get into character as Cage's unkempt stepmother when the death of her pooch made it all come together.

She tells WENN, "Some things personally were happening to me at the same time, so I sort of felt that the timing couldn't have been better with what my character was doing.

"I lost a dog the day before filming, in a terrible way. There's a book of photos that (director) Werner (Herzog) and his wife took and there's a picture where I look like Linda Blair from The Exorcist. I would like to say it was prosthetics but it was just some tragedy that helped it all.

"I think there were days I didn't bathe or wash my hair for a long time, so I did feel disgusting. I did become that person. If you could time it right in your life where you play someone tragic when something really awful is going on, it really works." »

Author of The Exorcist Talks Potential TV Series

17 November 2009 1:34 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

You may have heard the rumors regarding a potential "remake" of The Exorcist, a project that could involve the same creative duo as the 1973 horror classic. Director William Friedkin and writer William Peter Blatty, who also wrote the novel on which the movie is based, would collaborate on a TV series, and Bloody Disgusting writes that Blatty revealed some key details in an interview with Cemetary Dance magazine.

Specifically, Blatty mentioned details from the book he'd like to work in to the newer version, including the development of two minor characters, the housekeeper Karl and his daughter Elvira:

I would love to have been able to include the subplot involving Karl and his daughter Elvira which I did in my first draft, but that script ran to 172 pages, much, much too long. But I might have it my way in the near future, inasmuch as I've written an Exorcist miniseries »

Speak of The Devil: An Exorcist Miniseries?

16 November 2009 10:18 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Slash Film pointed us to a story over at Bloody-Disgusting (who got it from Cemetery Dance Magazine) talking about how author William Peter Blatty and director William Friedkin might be re-teaming for another take on The Exorcist, the book/screenplay/movie that made both men famous back in 1973-74, when The Exorcist became a horror film sensation, taking home multiple Oscars including Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay.

So is The Devil (aka Hollyweird) at work here? Not so much. The actual word is that Blatty has been working on a (spec?) script for a new Exorcist project for some time now, and that Friedkin may be onboard to helm it.

 

Now, if you’re a careful reader (fewer and fewer of those these days…) you’ll notice that I said “new Exorcist project.” That project is Not another unnecessary movie remake, but rather a new TV miniseries version of The Exorcist story, »

A new Exorcist?

The Exorcist is one of those films that few people think really needs to be remade - but what if the original writer and director were involved, and it was a miniseries, not a movie? That's a possibility currently being talked up by William Peter Blatty, who wrote both the novel and the book on which the film is based, and who was interviewed by Cemetery Dance magazine recently. Asked if there's anything he'd change about the film, Blatty replied, "I would love to have been able to include the subplot involving Karl and his daughter...

Friedkin and Blatty To Remake Exorcist?

15 November 2009 10:00 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

That sound you just heard was Mark Kermode's head exploding. William Peter Blatty, author of the original novel The Exorcist and its screenplay, has told Cemetery Dance magazine (in news brought to us by the always-excellent Bloody Disgusting) that a new version is in the works, in the form of a TV mini-series.Asked if there's anything he'd change about Friedkin's infamous 1973 classic, Blatty responded that he wished he'd been able to include a subplot from the novel about Chris MacNeil's housekeeper Karl, his daughter Elvira, and the questions over the death of Burke Dennings, but had been forced to drop it to keep the screenplay to a manageable two-ish hours. Then comes the bombshell: "But I might have it my way in the near future, inasmuch as I've written an Exorcist miniseries script that not only faithfully includes all the main elements of the novel, but also some »

William Friedkin Directing William Peter Blatty's Exorcist Remake?

15 November 2009 3:09 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

This news will probably upset anyone who is a die-hard fan of the original, but there may be hope. In a recent interview with Cemetery Dance (via Bloody-Disgusting), The Exorcist author William Peter Blatty clearly revealed that he was writing a remake of The Exorcist and that William Friedkin was going to direct it. The original 1973 Exorcist, based on Blatty's book, was adapted by Blatty himself and directed by Friedkin as well. So if we're to believe what he says, then it means the two are potentially reteaming again for an Exorcist remake or reboot or something along those lines. Read on for the full quote from Blatty. "Yes and no. I would love to have been able to include the subplot involving Karl and his daughter Elvira which I did in my first draft, but that script ran to 172 pages, much, much too long.

William Peter Blatty and William Friedkin Team for Another The Exorcist?

14 November 2009 8:35 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It seems that William Peter Blatty, the author of the original novel The Exorcist, could be reteaming with William Friedkin, director of the 1973 film based on Blatty's classic literary work of genius, for another version of the story. Though, according to Blatty, this new project won't be going to theater screens. Instead, it will be a four-hour miniseries made for television.

Cementary Dance magazine (courtesy of Bloody Disgusting) recently interviewed the author, and when asked if he would change anything about the original film, Blatty stated: Yes and no. I would love to have been able to include the subplot involving Karl and his daughter Elvira which I did in my first draft, but that script ran to 172 pages, much, much too long.
