Watch: 9-Minute Video Essay On Brian De Palma's Cult Classic 'Phantom Of The Paradise'

4 December 2014 9:21 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Though not as famous as either “Tommy” or “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” and despite its quick box office death, Brian de Palma’s 1974 rock opera “Phantom of the Paradise” has slowly developed a cult following over the years, and a new video essay from Scout Tafoya will tell you why. The latest entry in Tafoya’s monthy video series “The Unloved” (via RogerEbert.com) focuses on de Palma’s cult classic and provides some much-needed context for the film’s very existence – it came out during the so-called New Hollywood movement of the '70s – as well as lavishing praise on de Palma’s stylized direction and world-building. Special notice is also given to the film’s star – and antagonist – Paul Williams, who created the film’s stellar soundtrack. Although it took decades to find its audience, the film still had a lasting impact on those lucky few that understood its madness. »

Rocky Horror Picture Show sequel Shock Treatment for stage adaptation

28 November 2014 7:34 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Rocky Horror Picture Show sequel Shock Treatment is to be adapted for theatre.

Creator Richard O'Brien has reworked the film for the stage ahead of a debut at London's King's Head Theatre in April, BBC News reports.

Filmed in 1981, Shock Treatment was a commercial flop that never gained a general release.

In focused around a sinister game show that imprisoned Rocky Horror characters Brad and Janet.

O'Brien said: "Shock Treatment has been waiting patiently in the wings for a stage premiere since the film was released in 1981.

"Just as Rocky began life upstairs at the Royal Court, it seems a perfect fit for Shock Treatment to start its stage life in the effervescent atmosphere of the astounding King's Head Theatre."

‘Rocky Horror’ Sequel ‘Shock Treatment’ Set To Electrify London Stage

27 November 2014 11:30 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Legendary schlock musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show had a successful stage to screen transfer, in the process inspiring more cosplay than a thousand Wizard World conventions. Follow up movie Shock Treatment was a flop, but writer/star Richard O’Brien is planning to set the blood-stained glitterball in motion again with a reworked live version, due to premiere at the King’s Head Theatre in London next year. Though not a direct sequel, the film featured Rocky Horror characters Brad and Janet, who became part of a deranged TV broadcast in an age before reality television.

The satirical content is clearly a big draw for reviving the script now. While Shock Treatment didn’t make a dent at the box office it does have its own following. The production cast numerous performers who would go on to greater things, such as the late Rik Mayall and Ruby Wax, as »

15 Weirdest Cult Films Of All Time

27 November 2014 9:29 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures.

Cult films are movies that have a dedicated, passionate following. Originally, the term was coined to describe the following of midnight movies, such as The Rocky Horror Picture Show, in the 1970’s. Since then the term has grown and now cult film is its own established sub-genre.

They are often marketed as cult objects – occasionally films are made with the idea that they will become cult hits in the future. This sort of film can be kept alive after failing at the box-office thanks to its fans and their efforts to ensure that it does not get forgotten by quoting it, holding special screenings and engaging in other types of audience participation including things like cosplay.

A film can be labelled a cult movie for many reasons. The aforementioned box-office failure is one, along with the presence of a certain actor, themes or stylistic devices. They are often »

Candid Kidman (and Naomi) in 'The Last Impresario'

22 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Glenn here with a bit of a photography break. I had anticipated catching far more films at Doc NYC, the documentary festival that is wrapping up its season here in New York. One film that I was able to catch, a nominee for Best Documentary at the "Australian Oscars", was Gracie Otto's The Last Impresario. It is a delightfully portrait of the life and career of the so-called most famous man you have never heard of, Michael White, and an entertaining trip down the film and theatre industry's memory lane. Otto discovered White when visiting the Cannes Film Festival and sought to document him, looking at the way he changed London's West End with original productions of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Oh! Calcutta! and many more, before getting into film production with the likes of Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

One of the film's best moments is »

Watch an incredible live staging of ‘Back to the Future’

21 November 2014 7:21 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Back to the Future is one of the most beloved films of the last several decades, and an arguably perfect Hollywood film, but it’s a wonder that the film hasn’t gotten the same cult treatment as say, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. No one would bat an eye at performers acting out scenes in front of a live screening of that film, but now one group called Secret Cinema has gone the extra mile and done the same for Robert Zemeckis’s film. And they’ve spared no expense, completely recreating the old ’50s town of Hill Valley, California in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. Take a look:

/Film shared the video Thursday after first reporting on the event back in June. They point out that another secret screening of Back to the Future may arrive in Los Angeles at some point. But in the mean time, »

'The Conjuring 2' Gets Delayed Until 2016

21 October 2014 7:29 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

How much of a threat is Jem and the Holograms? Enough of one that Warner Bros. has decided to shuffle it's release for the highly anticipated sequel The Conjuring 2.

The Conjuring 2 was originally set to open in time for Halloween next year, arriving on October 23, 2015. Now that Jem and the Holograms is also occupying that slot, Warner Bros. has delayed their sequel to director James Wan's 2013 hit The Conjuring, moving it to an unspecified release date in 2016.

The Conjuring 2 will reportedly continue the adventures of real-life paranormal investigators Ed Warren (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) as they take on a new case. The spinoff Annabelle came out earlier this month, and while it wasn't a hit with critics it has already pulled in $37 million against a $6 million budget. There are no plans for a sequel at this moment.

Right now, The Conjuring 2 does not have a set director. »

Top 10 Musicals That Should Be Made Into Movies

20 October 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There are two upcoming movie musicals that, for a long time, I've wanted to make into motion pictures, should someone with money be willing to give me the funds to make them -- Into The Woods and The Last 5 Years. I'm both nervous and excited to see how directors Rob Marshall and Richard Lagravenese, respectfully, have interpreted the material I hold so close to my heart. I am especially nervous for Into The Woods, given Marshall's less than impressive track record. If someone is going to screw up something I cherish, it should be me. Of course, there are far more than two musicals I have a deep connection to. Some have already been made into films, like Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Les Miserables, but there is a vast collection of musicals I have thought could make fantastic films, but have never been made. »
