Why The Terminator is a horror classic

22 July 2014 1:31 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As James Cameron's The Terminator turns 30, Ryan looks at how its horror overtones made it a classic...

Feature

Things were not going well for James Cameron in the spring of 1982. He was just five days into what is supposed to be his debut as a director, the low-budget horror sequel Piranha II: The Spawning, and the project had gone sour.

Producer Ovidio Assonitis had no intention of letting Cameron make the film his own way (Assonitis had a track record of firing directors and taking over projects himself), and before long the director found himself stuck in Rome, jobless, and struck down with a fever. It was then that Cameron had the nightmare which would change the course of his career.

He dreamt of a horrifying metal being, clawing its way towards out of a sheet of fire, clutching a pair of kitchen knives. It was the seed that »

'Breaking Bad' spin-off starring Val Kilmer and Slash hits Kickstarter

16 July 2014 4:39 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

With each season of Breaking Bad, the show’s fan base grew, right up until showrunner Vince Gilligan decided that Walter White’s story had come to end after five seasons. But not everyone agreed with Gilligan’s choice. And as far as industry newcomer Larry Shepherd is concerned—spoiler!—Walt’s presumed death is not the final chapter of the story. And that’s exactly why he has launched a Kickstarter campaign for his own Breaking Bad spin-off titled Anastasia.

On the Anastasia Kickstarter page, Shepherd describes his series as picking up directly after Walter White’s collapse in the Breaking Bad finale, »

2014's most influential director: John Carpenter?

16 July 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

John Carpenter was once among Hollywood’s most prolific filmmakers. But the man who brought us such genre classics as Halloween, The Thing, Escape From New York, and Assault on Precinct 13 has only made one movie in the past 13 years—2010’s psychological thriller The Ward—and hasn’t troubled the box office in a big way since 1998’s James Woods-starring Vampires. (And Carpenter, 66, doesn’t sound like he’s in any rush to get back behind the camera: “I worked really hard for more years than I’d like to count, but now I can pick and choose things, »

10 of geek cinema's more curious quirks of fate

10 July 2014 6:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We take a light-hearted look at a few of the more strange coincidences and quirks of fate in recent cinema history...

Top 10

Stories are often built on coincidences and happenstance. Chance encounters at railway stations. Bruce Willis bumping into Ving Rhames while he's out and about in his Honda in Pulp Fiction. But what about those weird patterns we see in our everyday reality, or, more to the point, in cinema history?

When Batman Begins came out, it was widely noted that Christian Bale had already played an unfathomably rich man with a secret double life before, in Mary Harron's adaptation of American Psycho. Bale's character, Patrick Bateman, even has a surname that's basically Batman with an 'e' added to it.

Those are the kinds of strange quirks of fate we're looking at here. If you have any of your own, do share them in the comments section.

So, that book we first brought to your attention last fall - "On Set with John Carpenter" - has a release date: October 21st. This 176-page tome represents the works of Kim Gottlieb-Walker, who spent a lot of time with Carpenter doing on-set photography. Some of her pieces were on display at a Halloween convention in Pasadena last October and they're impressive. Many shots are never-before-seen. We're talking about from Halloween to Big Trouble in Little China.

This Fall ‘Prom Night’ Comes To Blu-ray

2 July 2014 5:28 PM, PDT | Horror News | See recent Horror News news »

1980 was a huge year for Jamie Lee Curtis. It’s the year she starred in three genre classics. ‘The Fog’, ‘Terror Train’ and of course, ‘Prom Night’. While “Halloween certainly thrust her into the “Scream Queen” arena it was the release of those three films in 1980 that cemented her crown.

On Sept. 9th Synapse Films will release the later of those three – ‘Prom Night’.

Malek Akkad Talks New Halloween Film

29 June 2014 4:21 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

So the big question everyone has been wondering since the announcement of the next Halloween film was whether or not it would continue on in the universe set up by Rob Zombie. Recently Collider caught up with Malek Akkad at the Saturn Awards, who shed some light on the subject.

“I can’t talk about it too much right now," says Akkad. "It will definitely keep elements and bring in new elements. But I really want to bring it back to kind of like, the classic – because the last one got a little dark – I want to bring it back to the classic Friday night horror film that people will really like.”

When asked about the ill-fated Halloween 3D, which was announced a couple of years back...

"Todd Farmer and Patrick Lussier did a script. The next day after the last one came out, we were back in production for Halloween 3D. »

Malek Akkad Offers a Halloween 3 Update…

29 June 2014 4:01 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

​Malek Akkad - son of Moustapha Akkad and overseer of all things related to Michael Myers and the Halloween series - hit the carpet of the Saturn Awards and Collider got some quotes from him about the franchise. The long-mooted Halloween 3 was brought up, naturally. But Akkad remained rather tight-lipped about the project which was said to be gaining some momentum a few months back.
