Mark Kermode's DVD round-up

29 December 2012 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Berberian Sound Studio; Grabbers; Code Name Geronimo – the Hunt for Osama Bin Laden; A Few Best Men

While the press has been full of doom-and-gloom stories about the "British film industry" (whatever that is) dying on its feet, 2012 proved to be yet another year in which the UK punched above its weight thanks to the work of adventurously non-parochial film-makers like Peter Strickland. In the extraordinary (anti)revenge thriller Katalin Varga (2009), writer/director Strickland unravelled a mythical archetype against the backdrop of the Carpathian mountains. Now, with Berberian Sound Studio (2012, Artificial Eye, 15), he turns his eye towards Italy and the evocatively vivid giallo-inflected horrors of Mario Bava, Dario Argento et al, which set the stylish template for a generation of saleably derivative American 70s schlockers.

The brilliantly versatile Toby Jones (whose Christmas TV performance in The Girl gave Anthony Hopkins a run for his money in the forthcoming Hitchcock) stars as Gilderoy, »

Review: ‘The Night of the Devils’ is Wonderfully Lurid Italian Horror Done Right

15 November 2012 3:00 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Editors’ Note: The Coroner’s Report and Foreign Objects are distinct columns covering horror and foreign films respectively, but a mash-up of the two feels more appropriate on the rare occasion when we cover a foreign language horror film. You wouldn’t know it from Italy’s film output these days, but there was a time when the country was home to filmmakers keeping the horror genre alive and well for the rest of us. That time was a roughly three decade span from the 60s through the 80s when filmmakers like Mario Bava, Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci and Lamberto Bava delivered movies that paired violence and sexuality with style and atmosphere. The result was a list of movies that continue to excite fans to this day including A Bay of Blood, Suspiria, The Beyond, Demons and more. Giorgio Ferroni and his 1972 film, La Notte dei Diavoli (aka The Night of the Devils) aren’t nearly as »

‘Dracula 3D’ Clips Showcase Dario Argento’s Horrific Vampire Legend

7 November 2012 3:03 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Dario Argento – a master of horror? Perhaps at one point. The Suspiria and Inferno director is gearing up for the Us release of his latest, Dracula 3D, but after catching these two clips of the film, you may want to steer clear of the 2013 IFC Midnight entry. It’s pretty horrific – and not in the way you’d want or expect.

The film is a wildly unique spin on the Dracula legend. Jonathan Harker (Unax Ugalde) leaves his fiancée, Mina (Marta Gastini), to go to work for Count Dracula (Thomas Kretschmann), but soon comes to realize the Count is actually holding him prisoner. Desperate to see her husband, Mina comes to town for a visit, but not only can she not get in touch with Jonathan, she must tend to her good friend Lucy (Asia ...

8.30pm, BBC1

A Panorama report following up one of its more worthwhile investigations of recent times: the exposure of mistreatment of patients at the Winterbourne View private hospital near Bristol. The hospital is now closed, with 11 of its staff facing sentencing as we go to press, but as this sequel shows, the trauma suffered by their victims goes on. Continuing the public health theme, over on Channel 4, Dispatches asks whether the outsourcing of NHS services to the private sector is going to do anybody but the contractors any good.

Mark Gatiss's tribute to movie horror is a gruesome treat

26 October 2012 4:03 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Doctor Who and Sherlock writer takes an expert look at cinematic spine chillers, from Argento to Del Toro, says Sarah Dempster

A full moon looms, a synthesizer gulps and – dun dun duuuuuun – it's all aboard Horror Europa With Mark Gatiss (Tuesday, 9pm, BBC4) for a trundle through the bloodied annals of continental terror. A one-off sequel to 2010's sterling A History of Horror, it finds Gatiss in endearingly tweedy tour guide mode, bringing relish and twinkle to a cross-continental tale of beleaguered mavericks, visionary hacks, broiling political subtexts and no-budget eviscerations.

First stop: Ostend. "What is commercial? Commercial is violence, blood, sex, horror," rumbles director Harry Kümel, a voluminously bearded pensioner in a sensible jumper who discusses murderous lesbians and ritualistic disembowelment with the polite weariness of a vicar extracting cress from a Bhs egg bap. He's right, of course, but it's the history and the curios that most interest Gatiss, »

100 + Greatest Horror Movies (pt.4) 75-51

25 October 2012 6:15 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the month of October, Editor-in-Chief and resident Horror expert Ricky D, will be posting a list of his favorite Horror films of all time. The list will be posted in six parts. Click here to see every entry.

As with all lists, this is personal and nobody will agree with every choice – and if you do, that would be incredibly disturbing. It was almost impossible for me to rank them in order, but I tried and eventually gave up.

Special Mention:

American Psycho

Directed by Mary Harrron

Written by Mary Harron

2000, USA

Bret Easton Ellis’s dark and violent satire of America in the 1980s was brought to the big screen by director Mary Harron. Initially slapped with the MPAA’s kiss of death (an Nc-17 rating), American Psycho was later re-edited and reduced to a more commercially dependable “R”. Perhaps the film works best as a slick satire about misogyny, »

6 Filmmaking Tips From Dario Argento

24 October 2012 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The word “Giallo” is Italian for “Yellow” which was the color of the covers of old pulp novels from the Mondadori publishing house. It’s also the color of the urine that’s scared out of you while watching the best horror flicks. There are a lot of names associated with the film movement (which usually focuses on the very stylish, very violent removal of blood from someone’s body), but at the top of the list is Dario Argento (sorry, Fulci fans). The Italian filmmaker has delivered the truly bizarre and beautiful, making movies like Suspiria and The Bird with the Crystal Plumage amongst many, many others. He was also instrumental in bringing Dawn of the Dead to life and influenced a new generation of horror directors (not to mention leagues of fans). So here’s a bit of free film school (for fans and filmmakers alike) from the master of Yellow. Go »

Fright Exclusive Interview – Richard Bates Jr. Director of Excision!

21 October 2012 12:55 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

From the moment I first saw the trailer to Excision, I knew it was going to be something special. It reminded me slightly in tone (judging from that promo clip) to Lucky McKee’s debut feature May and featured an incredible all star cast consisting of AnnaLynne McCord (90210), Traci Lords, John Waters, Malcolm McDowell, Ray Wise, Roger Bart, Marlee Matlin and so on and so forth. And before I even sat down to watch it, I knew that I had to talk to the sick and twisted mind that thought this whole thing up. Turns out that would be writer/director Richard Bates Jr. who makes his debut with Excision after also directing a short film version of it back in 2008. Richard was kind enough to sit down with Icons for a chat about the history of this personal project. Here’s what we found out! -Rob G. 10/12

Italian Teaser Trailer For Dario Argento’s ‘Dracula 3D’

19 October 2012 7:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Italian horror master Dario Argento, who brought us films such as Suspiria (1977), Inferno (1980), and Tenebre (1982) has recently directed a 3D adaptation of Dracula, called Dracula 3D. The film stars Rutger Hauer as Abraham Van Helsing, Thomas Kretschmann as Dracula, and Dario Argento’s own daughter Asia Argento as Lucy. We have the Iyalin teaser for you below, which doesn’t show too much, but you should really be familiar with the tale of Dracula by now.

The film was recently picked up by IFC Films for distribution in North America, so we’ll just have to wait and see how all of that turns out and hopefully we’ll get a UK release soon as well. Dario Argento can be hit and miss, as his films skirt between genuinely scary and a bit cheesy. Luckily for me I like both, but if I would have to take a guess, I »

31 Days of Horror: ‘The Masque of the Red Death’ is a wonder of atmosphere and colour

18 October 2012 8:59 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Masque of the Red Death

Written for the screen by Charles Beaumont and R. Wright Campbell

Directed by Roger Corman

USA/UK, 1964

While the British Hammer studio mined European gothic staples in its horror cinema revolution, their American counterpart, albeit one less blood-soaked, could be found in a series of Edgar Allan Poe adaptations directed by Roger Corman. The Masque of the Red Death is one such example, presenting Poe’s piece of the same name, while also incorporating other short stories as subplots. The content of those shorts doesn’t allow for the most elaborate story structure, but the narrative framework of the film, still perfectly decent and concise, matters little as this is a film chiefly about atmosphere and macabre visuals, the latter coming from future director Nicolas Roeg’s marvelous cinematography.

The film is set in this traditional gothic castle, acting as a fortress from the “red death” plague, »

Special Mention: Gremlins

Directed by Joe Dante

Written by Chris Columbus

1984, USA

Gremlins gets a special mention because I’ve always considered it more of a comedy and a wholesome Christmas flick than an actual horror film. This tribute the 1950s matinee genre stands the test of time from a time when parents would take their children to family films that pushed the boundaries of the MPAA. Joe Dante is »

David Gordon Green set to direct Little House on the Prairie film

2 October 2012 2:45 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Film-maker behind Pineapple Express in talks to shoot Abi Morgan adaptation of Laura Ingalls Wilder's books

David Gordon Green is in talks to direct a big-screen transfer for the American children's literary classic Little House on the Prairie, reports Deadline. The film adaptations's screenplay would be delivered by Britain's Abi Morgan, screenwriter on Phyllida Lloyd's The Iron Lady and Steve McQueen's Shame.

Gordon, who has graduated (some might say regressed) from small-town indie dramas such as George Washington and All the Real Girls to Hollywood stoner comedies such as Pineapple Express and Your Highness, is said to be at an early stage of negotiation. There are, as yet, no casting or other details.

Laura Ingalls Wilder published eight semi-autobiographical books in the Little House on the Prairie series between 1932 and 1943. They tell the story of a frontier family battling to make its way in the wilds of »

Guest Blog: Artist/Writer Tim Seeley Describes the Making of the Cover of Ex Sanguine

20 September 2012 5:32 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Ex Sanguine, from the creative team of Tim Seeley and Josh Emmons, is being released by Dark Horse Comics on October 17th, and Seeley put together this guest blog for us describing his process of designing the cover for Issue #1.

Seeley tells us how he began: "So I've got to come up with a cover for Ex Sanguine Issue 1, my new horror book from the great folks at Dark Horse. The first thing I do is look across my studio to where Josh Emmons sits and ask him what he thinks, as co-writer, we should focus on for the theme of the cover. Josh says he thinks it should hint at the 'romance' of the two main characters or on the plight of lead vampire, Saul Adams, whose long life is causing him to lose his memories and identities."

First came a number of concept sketches. Seeley explains, "It's not »

Six Killer Horror Soundtracks to Rattle Your Bones

16 September 2012 11:56 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Did you know how many horror movies that have completely forgettable music will still end up with a soundtrack available for purchase? I can't tell you the amount of times I've gotten to the end of the credits of a terrible movie and saw "Soundtrack available on ________ records."

I can't help but be baffled that someone would want all those songs in one place. Other times, the soundtrack available for a horror movie is a compilation of songs either written for or inspired by the movie written by artists that reflect the tone of the movie. Other times, however, the music that accompanies a horror film so perfectly matches the tone of the movie you can't imagine any other music being sufficient, and even listening to that music on its own is enough to give you the creeps. The following soundtracks are the ones that no matter where you are or what you're doing, »

DVD Review: "The Legacy" (1978) Starring Katharine Ross And Sam Elliott

Note: this review pertains to the British Region 2  DVD edition 

SL500_AA300.jpg" alt="The Legacy [DVD]" />

By Adrian Smith 

Although best known for his work as both a writer, director and producer with Hammer Films, Jimmy Sangster actually relocated to Hollywood during the early 1970s, where he worked very successfully in both film and television. Whilst there he wrote a supernatural script set in a run- down hospital in downtown Detroit. Much to his chagrin, the script was altered to more closely resemble the Hammer movies that were, to him at least, ancient history. Although keeping the American protagonists, events were manipulated to allow the story instead to take place in an English country estate featuring a collection of stereotypical butlers, chauffeurs and curtseying maids. The film is essentially Agatha Christie meets Dennis Wheatley through the filter of Dario Argento.
