Synapse Films to Release Single-Disc Blu-ray / DVD of Dario Argento’s Tenebrae

28 June 2016 1:13 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

If you missed out on their three-disc, limited edition Steelbook release of Tenebrae back in February, then you're in luck, because Synapse Films has announced a September 13th single-disc Blu-ray / DVD release of the 1982 Dario Argento film, complete with many of the special features included on the Steelbook:

Press Release: Synapse Films Announces The Single-disc Release Of Tenebrae, Dario Argento’S Giallo Masterpiece, On Blu-ray And DVD September 13th

Italian terror master Dario Argento elevates the Giallo genre to new heights with 1982’s Tenebrae, a darkly humorous, futuristic and notoriously grisly horror film many consider to be one of his finest works.

American mystery author Peter Neal (Anthony Franciosa) comes to Italy to promote his newest novel, Tenebrae. Unfortunately, a razor-wielding serial killer is on the loose, taunting Neal and murdering those around him in gruesome fashion just like the character in his novel. As the mystery surrounding the killings spirals out of control, »

'Game of Thrones': An Appreciation of Ramsay Bolton

22 June 2016 5:17 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Ramsay Bolton is dead. Scratch that: Ramsay Bolton is dog food. Fed to his own hounds by his former victim Sansa Stark after his defeat by her half-brother Jon Snow, he suffered a fate as grisly as the ones he'd dished out over his four-season run. During that time, he became Game of Thrones' most divisive character: Viewers and critics alike found him boring in his brutality, as he committed atrocity after atrocity the way normal people ate breakfast. What, many asked, was the point?

But that's just it: The pointlessness is the point. »

Alexander the Great and Judy the Greatest

10 June 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

On this day in history as it relates to the movies...

323 BC Alexander the Great dies of an unknown illness. Colin Farrell plays him in a movie centuries and centuries later and it's suggested that it's a combo of Typhus, Bad Wigs, and Loving Jared Leto that does him in. Who could survive that combo? (Remember when Baz Luhrmann was going to make an Alexander movie, too, but Oliver Stone beat him to it? We wish it had been the other way around.)

38 Ad Julia Drusilla dies in Rome. In the infamous Bob Guccione movie Caligula (1979) her brother Caligula (Malcom McDowell) is shown licking her corpse. Somehow that's not remotely the most perverted thing in the movie!

1692 Bridget Bishop is executed for "Detestable Arts called Witchcraft & Sorceries." She's the first victim of the notorious Salem Witch Trials that will claim many lives and inspire many works of art including The »

9 Songs That Endorse Cheating On Your Partner

19 January 2016 5:24 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

McA

If I’ve learned anything from the music business (and I probably haven’t), it’s that life for a music star is like one, decades-long scene from Caligula: a hazy combination of sex, drugs, and hardcore depravity that may or may not involve Helen Mirren and acts of bestiality. Also, no one outside of Taylor Swift seems that worried about cheating on each other.

Well, okay, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration. After all, there are countless songs about the heartbreak that stems from finding out you’ve been cheated on. It’s the kind of raw, visceral pain that even million dollar recording contracts and worldwide fame don’t help you get over. (If Beyonce’s so affected by it, none of us have a chance.)

Still, for every plaintive cautionary tale about the agony that’s triggered by a passionate love affair, there »

Dragon Blade review – historically fanciful romp

17 January 2016 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Jackie Chan, John Cusack and Adrien Brody take up swords and sandals for this epic Silk Road crowd-pleaser

A crowd-pleasing theatrical hit in China, Daniel Lee’s visually lavish romp gets only a limited cinema airing in the UK, alongside a simultaneous VOD release. There’s certainly enough spectacle for any cinema, as the Han dynasty narrative throws up warring tribal nations and marauding Roman legions, brought together on the Silk Road in a historically fanciful mashup of martial arts, military manoeuvres, and “all together now” construction work. Jackie Chan is typically likable as Huo An, who forms an unexpected bond with John Cusack’s mildly laughable Lucius before Adrien Brody appears as the utterly preposterous Tiberius – a swaggering performance that would not have looked out of place in Tinto Brass’s Caligula. Handsome production design and sweeping battle vistas lend a touch of class, with Chan directing the action scenes with trademark brio. »
