Criterion Files #28: Sate Your Thirst with ‘Blood for Dracula’

7 December 2011 4:06 PM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Editor’s note: This week, your tireless Criterion Warrior (oh, idea for a new column!) requested a week off to pursue something literary and intelligent and, well, big-wordy. With Mr. Palmer out, our own J.L. Sosa stepped up to the plate to file his very own Criterion, um, File. Be nice, bloodsuckers! When I first saw Paul Morrissey‘s Blood for Dracula, I definitely felt like I was partaking of an illicit pleasure. A friend of mine with an encyclopedic knowledge (and equally impressive collection) of B-movies was moving to new digs and bequeathed to me, along with many other obscure relics, his VHS dub of the Criterion Collection’s unedited laserdisc edition of the film (Ld spine #287, for the digit-obsessed). Based on the rumors I’d long heard, I was expecting copious over-the-top gore. The film delivered on that promise, but also unexpectedly unfolded with the langorous pace of a high-falutin’ costume drama. You »

Criterion Files #63: Things Aren’t What They Seem in ‘Carnival of Souls’

27 October 2011 9:46 AM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Flesh for Frankenstein and Blood for Dracula. Island of Lost Souls. The Most Dangerous Game. The Night of the Hunter. The Blob. For a company perhaps best known for releasing pristine editions of international arthouse classics, The Criterion Collection certainly has a healthy amount of cult films in its repertoire. Cult cinema is often a difficult beast to recognize, for such films avoid the roads best travelled in their journey towards recognition and renown. Unlike seminal films in the collection including The 400 Blows, 8 ½, or Rashomon, cult films aren’t typically met with immediate cultural or institutional recognition upon release, aren’t made by internationally-recognized talent, and don’t always have an immediately traceable history of influence. That is, however, what makes cult films so interesting and so valuable: they emerge without expectation or pretense and signal the most populist and anti-elite means by which a film can gain recognition, pointing »

I just came back from the Fantasia Film festival press conference and I am already overwhelmed.

Flesh For Frankenstein Review d: Paul Morrissey

1 April 2011 2:39 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Flesh For Frankenstein / Andy Warhol's Frankenstein (1973) Direction and Screenplay: Paul Morrissey Cast: Joe Dallesandro, Udo Kier, Monique van Vooren, Dalila Di Lazzaro, Arno Juerging, Srdjan Zelenovic, Nicoletta Elmi, Marco Liofredi, Liù Bosisio Highly Recommended Monique van Vooren, Joe Dallesandro, Flesh for Frankenstein The first time I saw Flesh for Frankenstein was during its theatrical release in 1973, when it was titled, Andy Warhol's Frankenstein. Warhol, of course, had little to do with the production besides lending his name to it. The real genius behind Frankenstein and its follow-up, Andy Warhol's Dracula, was Paul Morrissey. [Antonio Margheriti aka Anthony M. Dawson's contributions to the film are unclear.] The original Frankenstein release was in glorious 3-D, with special visual effects by Robert V. Bernier and Carlo Ramboldi. Maybe it's because I find it less distracting, but I prefer the (2D) DVD issue better. That's because the film's dark humor comes through without [...] »

Cult icon Joe Dallesandro joins Canada’s Shock Stock con

10 February 2011 11:57 AM, PST | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

Canadian horror and exploitation film fans making their way to London, Ontario’s first-ever Shock Stock convention (running April 29-May 1) will be thrilled to learn that legendary Andy Warhol disciple/actor Joe Dallesandro (pictured) will be appearing. Fans know Dallesandro not only for his landmark New York art/porn hits Flesh, Trash and Heat, but for the wild Paul Morrissey-directed cult favorites Flesh For Frankenstein (a.k.a. Andy Warhol’S Frankenstein) and Blood For Dracula (a.k.a. Andy Warhol’S Dracula). »

My Udo My Udo What Have Ye Done

4 January 2011 2:00 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Ja from Mnpp here. Have you read this phenomenally odd and delightful interview with the actor Udo Kier at The Av Club? Odd and delightful are the two words I'd always use whenever mentioning Mr. Kier, but he really brings it this time around.

Over at Mnpp  I picked out my fifteen favorite quotes from the interview, but I'm so oddly delighted in this chat's wake I've got to just keep on thinking about Udo, and what better way to do that then to mercilessly pick apart the work he's done over the years with a completely frivolous list. He's worked so much in such a vast array of projects that there are dozens of his performances that I've missed (I don't know how this is possible but it appears I've never seen any of the films he's done with Fassbinder, for example), but out of the many I have »
