Hammer Films 'The Vampire Lovers' Coming to Blu-Ray

9 December 2012 1:28 AM, PST | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Another Hammer Film has been rescued from the vaults and is making its way to Blu-ray courtesy of the fine folks over at Scream Factory, the horror film division of distributor Shout Factory. They have announced that The Vampire Lovers (1970) is headed to Blu-ray sometime in 2013.

The film is directed by Roy Ward Baker (Scars of Dracula, And Now the Screaming Starts!) and stars Peter Cushing (Dracula, The Curse of Frankenstein), Ingrid Pitt (Countess Dracula, The House that Dripped Blood), Kate O'Mara (The Horror of Frankenstein), and Madeline Smith (Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell).

The independent distributors are yet to reveal the technical specs and supplemental features that will be included on this release.

Phil Nichols' Frankenstein Stage Play Gets a New Lead Actor

6 September 2012 12:48 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The Houston Country Playhouse's production of Frankenstein helmed by Phil Nichols is gearing up for its October 12th start, and we just got word that a new lead actor is stepping into the pivotal role of Victor Frankenstein.

Nichols told us, "We’re in the home stretch on Frankenstein. Unfortunately, Sam Martinez left the production for personal reasons, but a fresh young actor named Louis Crespo, Jr., is taking over the part of Victor Frankenstein." Phil sent over a gallery's worth of stills featuring Crespo, which you can see below.

Synopsis:

FX master and director Phil Nichols’ (Groundead, Renfield: The Un-Dead, Boggy Creek 2010, Psychic Experiment, Reel FX make-up kits) take on this production of Frankenstein by Victor Gialanella from the novel by Mary Shelley is "high Hammer horror style". Nichols says, “We’re pulling out all the stops to homage the Peter Cushing Frankenstein films, drawing inspiration from Evil of »

This Week’s Must Read is actually a series of reads. If you haven’t been following the One+One Filmmakers Journal new blog, you’ve been missing some of the best new writing on underground film past and present on the web. They’re really turning themselves into an invaluable resource over there. This past week they’ve run a great primer on Barbara Hammer, a review of the documentary It Came From Kuchar, and a piece on dissident filmmaking.Brooklyn’s Light Industry screening room also has a new blog up, which is now required reading. Recently, they posted up the legendary 1971 issue of Artforum that was devoted to underground film.Robert Maier has an awesome story about a Baltimore-based underground film not directed by John Waters, but was to have featured Divine. Alas, the project fell through and it wasn’t to be. It was called Vacancy. »

Writer-Director to Bring Us Sherlock Holmes vs. Frankenstein

2 July 2012 7:12 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

The Frankenstein monster has taken on many a foe in cinema, namely his creator.  Now, his world is colliding with Sherlock Holmes in, well, the aptly titled Sherlock Holmes vs. Frankenstein, says Screen Daily.

Parkland Pictures is shepherding/selling the project which has French director Gautier Cazenave attached.

According to the site, the film "sees Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson travelling to Germany to investigate a strange case in the village of Darmstadt." Shocker.  This shit writes itself.

Hammer vet Shane Briant - who appeared in Captain Kronos and Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell - is attached to star with Clement Von Franckenstein (apparently a real-life baron whose family name served as the inspiration for Mary Shelley's novel).

8 March 2012 9:15 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The newly revived Hammer studios have put the call out to film fans everywhere for their help in track down some lost scenes from their back catalog that were previously cut by a villain even deadlier than Dracula, the censors!

Hammer have identified nine missing scenes from six of their most beloved films, which back in the 50′s and 60′s were deemed too shocking, violent, sexy or gory for British audiences by the film censors. The film studio’s search is a worldwide one with the hope that uncut versions of these scenes may be owned by private collectors who own the original film reels in other countries.

Here’s the nine clips being sought, which are listed on their website;

The Reptile – an extended “knife in neck/snake bite” scene The Curse of Frankenstein – the “eyeball” and “head in acid bath” scenes The Mummy – “under-dressed maidens”, “tongue-cutting” and/or »

19 January 2012 11:58 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

There's no doubt about it ... when it comes to horror, few studios are as synonymous with the genre as Hammer. The long and rich history they have with some of the world's greatest monsters and movies is nothing short of legendary, and they're looking to take steps to preserve these gems for many generations to come!

From the Press Release

Chris Haberman's VHS Misadventures

19 January 2012 1:10 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Need to ask a favor, folks. Here’s the deal: Months ago my wife and I and our friend John, whom you will meet later, decided to utilize our precious vacation time to rent a car and drive from our native Kentucky to Colorado. The goal was just to see what happened along the way. We departed on a Friday night with no reservations and a minimum of must-see destinations (the Badlands were imperative; the rest could be bypassed according to our whims at that time, at that moment).

I had no idea what was in store for me. Waking up in a national park to find an accusatory mountain goat looking in your filthy SUV’s window is one thing. Finding an ancient video store willing to sell hundreds of VHS tapes for $1.99 each is utterly another.

I present to you, dear, dear readers ... The Video Vendor.

We were in Newcastle, »
