Drive-In Dust Offs: Deep Red

23 May 2015 11:53 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

My first foray into Italian horror was Lucio Fulci’s Zombie (1980), seen as a delightfully repulsed 10 year old. However, Dario Argento’s Deep Red (Profondo Rosso if you’re Italian) was the first Italian horror film that actually intrigued me; same age, but very different feelings. The repulsion was there, that base fear, but set within a framework of beautifully rendered images. I didn’t know much about art, but it felt like that’s what I was watching.

Released in March of 1975, Deep Red was the latest thriller from Argento in the giallo style; an Italian term which has generally become  known to mean a gruesome, lurid detective story; so called due to the fact that the original Italian pulp novels a lot of these stories pay homage to were written on yellow, or giallo, paper. Argento was already making a name for himself worldwide with previous efforts in »

New Scream Queens Featurette: Go Behind the Scenes with Ryan Murphy and the Cast

22 May 2015 3:21 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I'm going to watch Scream Queens no matter what, but that first full-length trailer for Ryan Murphy's latest was a bit underwhelming. As Murphy explains in this brand new behind-the-scenes featurette, it's supposed to be a cross between Heathers and Friday the 13th. That mix sounds like it could be a blast, but based on the footage revealed thus far, I'm not quite sure if the show will nail the horror and humor, let alone deliver an appropriate blend of the two. Hear all about the upcoming series from Murphy and his cast in the new Scream Queens featurette below. The show also stars Lea Michele, Keke PalmerNasim Pedrad, Jamie Lee Curtis, Nick Jonas,Oliver Hudson, Ariana GrandeSkyler SamuelsBillie LourdDiego Boneta and Abigail Breslin, and will kick off its 15-episode run in the fall on Fox. Here’s the official synopsis for Scream Queens: »

Scream Queens Trailer Piles On The Self-Parody

20 May 2015 6:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox is betting big on Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk this fall with the American Horror Story creators’ campy horror-comedy Scream Queens, and now that the first full trailer for the anthology series has been released, it’s easy to see why – seemingly every teen idol this side of Disney pops up in the preview.

Emma Roberts (Unfabulous), The Nine Lives of Chloe King‘s Skyler SamuelsGlee‘s Lea Michele and Keke Palmer (True Jackson, VP) are seemingly taking on the biggest roles in a cast that also boasts Abigail Breslin, Nasim Pedrad, Oliver Hudson, Billie Lourd, Diego Boneta, Glen Powell, Lucien Laviscount, Niecy Nash, Nick Jonas and Ariana Grande. Oh – and original Scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis is on hand to provide the series’ real horror credentials (unless you want to count Breslin’s Zombieland and Haunter, which is entirely valid).

Unfortunately, the uneven tone displayed by this »

Watch: New Trailer for Scream Queens, Starring Jamie Lee Curtis & Emma Roberts

19 May 2015 2:01 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

"I think all these sororities are evil, but that house... is truly dangerous." A new, full-length trailer for Ryan Murphy's Scream Queens TV series has been released, teasing the hazing and horrors to come, including a death-by-lawnmower scene.

The 15-episode debut season of Scream Queens premieres this fall on Fox:

"The girls of Kappa House are dying for new pledges. Scream Queens is a new killer comedy-horror series from Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning executive producers of Glee and “American Horror Story.”

Wallace University is rocked by a string of murders. Kappa House, the most sought-after sorority for pledges, is ruled with an iron fist (in a pink glove) by its Queen Bitch, Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts, “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” “Scream 4”). But when anti-Kappa Dean Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis, “Halloween,” “A Fish Called Wanda,” “True Lies”) decrees »

Is Jamie Lee Curtis the killer in 'Scream Queens'?

14 May 2015 11:54 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jamie Lee Curtis is back where she started. The star who made her name with such iconic late '70s/early '80s slasher classics as "Halloween," "Prom Night" and (to a lesser extent) "Terror Train" shows up in the first trailer for Ryan Murphy's new series "Scream Queens," and in the process almost recreates her famed "angry lunch" photos: Theory: Jamie Lee Curtis is the killer here. Just spitballing! But think about what a delicious, ironic surprise that would be, given her storied background as a horror-movie victim. Or maybe it's too obvious? In any event, I can't think of a better use of her intimidating talents. Also starring Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin and Nick Jonas, among others, "Scream Queens" is slated to premiere in September on Fox. Watch the trailer above.   »

"What fresh hell is this?" The first footage from Ryan Murphy's Scream Queens TV series features Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, and a college campus serial killer.

Malcolm McDowell Becomes ‘The Abominable Dr.Phibes’

9 May 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

There was a time when Malcolm McDowell’s status as a jobbing actor in numerous celluloid stinkers appeared to eclipse his defining roles in Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange and Lindsay Anderson’s If.

However, good reviews for Amazon StudiosMozart In The Jungle brought him back to public attention in a way he maybe hadn’t experienced for a while. This success may be consolidated by his now taking the lead in a remake of Vincent Price comedy horror classic The Abominable Dr.Phibes.

The 1971 movie saw Price’s irrevocably-scarred academic seek revenge on the surgeons who he believed killed his wife following the devastating car crash that put her in hospital and destroyed his face. To make things more interesting he despatched each of them in the florid fashion of the Old Testament’s Ten Plagues Of Egypt. A sequel, Dr.Phibes Rises Again, followed and Price »

Poltergeist: How Tobe Hooper Deconstructed the American Dream & Fueled My Childhood Nightmares

8 May 2015 5:19 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This summer, a brand new vision of Poltergeist will arrive in theaters everywhere and terrify a whole new generation of fans. While I’m going to reserve my judgments on just how that version is going to fare until I see it on May 22nd, I thought this made for a perfect time to revisit Tobe Hooper’s original film, which has remained one of my favorite horror movies for over three decades and is still one of the greatest and most effective haunted house films of all time.

The first time I saw Poltergeist, I was only 5 years old and, suffice to say, my childhood was forever changed on that fateful day. Growing up, I was raised by a single mom and we lived in a trailer park, so I guess I always viewed families with both parents who could afford to live in a "real" home as individuals »

It’s the start of a new month, and as ever in film and Blu-ray circles, nothing gets the fans salivating more than the upcoming release slate from the awesome folks over at Arrow Films.

Combining the bio-horror elements of his earlier films whilst anticipating the technological themes of his later work, Videodrome exemplifies Cronenberg’s extraordinary talent for making both visceral and cerebral cinema. Max Renn (James Woods) is looking for fresh new content for his TV channel when he happens across some illegal S&M-style broadcasts called ‘Videodrome’.

9 incredible low-budget science fiction movies: Moon, Monsters, Primer

2 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The advent of nimble digital cameras and cutting edge visual effects has meant that filmmakers have been able to mount increasingly ambitious sci-fi stories on relatively small budgets.

This week sees the release of Monsters: Dark Continent, a follow-up to Gareth Edwards' brilliant 2010 debut Monsters. Not only did Monsters shoot Edwards to the big time, putting him in the director's chair for Godzilla and next year's Star Wars: Rogue One, but it also only cost less than $500,000 to make.

Below, we look at 11 incredible science fiction movies that prove you can make a great movie for just a fraction of what Avengers: Age of Ultron cost ($280 million, apparently!).

Dark Star (1974)

Production budget: $60,000

How many could you make for the price of Avengers: 4666

Why it's essential viewing: Before he made his trio of classics Assault on Precinct 13, Halloween and The Thing, John Carpenter directed this trippy sci-fi about »

April Ghouls Drive-in Monster-rama: Cinema Retro's Hank Reineke Reports

1 May 2015 7:02 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Hank Reineke

On the weekend of April 24-25, DVD Drive-In and the Riverside Drive-In in Vandergrift, Pa, hosted the third annual April Ghouls Drive-In Monster-Rama. This springtime festival of 1970s and 1980s exploitation horror-films, now in its third year, is the more recent sister to September’s glorious Drive-In Super Monster-Rama. This latter event, which will enjoy its ninth incarnation this coming autumn, generally features a slate of more “traditional” monster movies from the 1960s and 1970s. Neither weekend of programming should be missed by any horror film devotee with access to an automobile. The intent of the original Drive-In Super Monster-Rama (first presented at the Riverside in 2007) was to authentically re-create the ambiance of the all-night drive-in theater spook shows of the 1960s and 1970s. In this regard, the event succeeds in every possible manner.

Co-sponsored from its inception by George Reis of the cult-film website “DVD Drive-In” and the Riverside Drive-In, »

Icons of Fright Interview With Everly Director Joe Lynch and Actress Jennifer Blanc

25 April 2015 3:51 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

It’s impossible to not like Joe Lynch. Quite easily one of the nicest guys around, you can definitely hear the passion for film in his voice, and the mere mention of a film that Lynch is a fan of sparks a lengthy conversation, which is always great to have. Having recently hit DVD/Bluray, Lynch’s newest film, the Salma Hayek-led action film Everly, is an intense and inventive spin on the modern day action film, and features not only good performances by Hayek and a lot of other great actors, but also Jennifer Blanc-Biehn (The Victim, The Divide).

We were able to have a chat with both Joe and Jen regarding Everly, what drew them to the project, and what’s coming next for them as well. Read on!

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Beast Within

25 April 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The horror landscape was changing by 1982. People were tiring of slashers; even the Halloween franchise decided to take a left (some would say wrong) turn away from Shatner masks and sharpened knives, and used the brand name to explore the holiday itself in the perpetually under-appreciated Season of The Witch. The genre seemed to be turning towards monsters, from large scale dread fests such as John Carpenter's The Thing to more intimate fare like Frank Henenlotter's Basket Case. The horror films of 1982 displayed a refreshing variety of ways to make audiences jump, squirm, gasp, smile, and when the occasion arose, vomit. The Beast Within giddily checks all the boxes.

Released in February by United Artists, the film took in a total of 7.7 million at the box office. Those were not great numbers, and the reviews were worse. Mainstream critics in general have never been kind to horror; almost »
