Fright At Home – October 6th, 2015

15 hours ago | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

This week’s Fright At Home is going to be a jam packed one. Quite a few releases hit shelves and online stores today, so it’ll be a bit lengthy. Everything from sci-fi/action to straight up horror, and even some horror/comedy fare thrown in for good measure.

Nocturna (Alchemy)

John Hurt returns as the War Doctor with Big Finish

5 October 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We only got to witness the War Doctor for mere minutes during the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary episode “The Day of the Doctor“, however John Hurts presence as the Doctor captured the imagination of Whovians across the globe and made us internally and externally scream for more knowledge on the short life of this incarnation.   Well now Big Finish are doing just that with twelve full cast War Doctor audio plays featuring John Hurt himself!

“I have been a huge fan of John since first seeing him in the repeats of I, Claudius in the 1980s and in his Oscar-nominated role as the eponymous The Elephant Man,’ says Big Finish executive producer Jason Haigh-Ellery. ‘Watching his performance in The Day of the Doctor I did find myself fantasising that some far off day we might have the chance to work with him on the audio adventures of Doctor Who and »

200 Greatest Horror Films (180-171)

3 October 2015 7:51 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Special Mention: The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Directed by Jim Sharman

Screenplay by Richard O’Brien and Jim Sharman

1975, USA

For the unfamiliar, The Rocky Horror Picture Show is the film adaptation of a popular musical stage production composed and written by Richard O’Brien, a struggling actor at the time who was best known for his performances in such musicals as Hair and Jesus Christ Superstar. For O’Brien, The Rocky Horror Picture Show was an homage to drive-in double features and science fiction B-movies of the fifties, and ironically, the film itself went on to become the ultimate midnight movie. To this day, screenings held in and around its anniversary as well as on Halloween sell out. It has never been pulled by 20th Century Fox from its original 1975 release, and it continues to play in cinemas four decades after its premiere, making it the longest-running theatrical release in film history. »

Video of the Day: Watch a new compilation video of First and Final frames in films

30 September 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The way a film starts and the way it ends can tell a lot about a movie, as well as the particular style of the director behind the project. Numerous films throughout history have had memorable opening and closing shots that have elevated the feature in question, while also taking on a life of their own as iconic moments in cinema.

Following his first exploration of first and final frames in film, vimeo user Jacob T. Swinney has revisited the topic in a new video, looking at 70 new films and how their opening and closing mirror each other. Swinney had this to say in the episode description.

After numerous requests, I finally decided to create a sequel to “First and Final Frames”. Part II plays the opening and closing shots of 70 films side-by-side. Like the first video, some of the opening shots are strikingly similar to the final shots, while »

Best of Late Night TV: Kimmel Trolls Fallon With 'Heatherball' Game, Jeff Goldblum's Baby Talk

25 August 2015 12:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

"The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," "Late Night With Seth Meyers" and "The Late Late Show with James Corden" were all on repeats on Monday night. That left "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Conan" with new shows, and they were ready to steal your attention.

Jimmy Kimmel trolled Jimmy Fallon -- who always has elaborate games for his guests -- by setting up a game called "Heatherball," aka tetherball with Heather Graham's face on it (brilliant!), with guest Bob Odenkirk (mock) refusing to play. Bob said he wanted to just sit down and talk to Jimmy, and called his publicist on stage to complain that he was being forced to play a stupid game. »

Watch: Epic 18-Minute Tribute To The Films Of David Lynch

14 August 2015 1:59 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The end of next month marks the 38th anniversary of David Lynch’s debut feature film, “Eraserhead.” To preemptively commemorate the occasion, we thought we’d dust off an oldie, but a very much still relevant goodie. Filmmaker (and mega Lynch buff) Michael Warren cut together a fantastic 18-and-a-half-minute supercut of Lynch’s work three years ago, which holds up, given that the writer-director’s last feature was “Inland Empire” way back in 2006.   Warren’s tribute chronicles all ten of one-of-a-kind artist’s narrative movies to date, including “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me.” A true homage, it doesn’t skimp on making use of shots from the “Twin Peaks” series, either. Notable not just for its thoroughness, Warren’s video is wonderfully edited. He seamlessly splices together “Dune,” “Wild at Heart,” and “The Elephant Man” with “Blue Velvet,” “The Straight Story,” and “Mulholland Drive” (not to mention the other aforementioned pictures). Just as strong, »

People Places Things director James C. Strouse Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

Jim Strouse's sleeper summer hit features an agile, very funny Jemaine Clement sparring with Stephanie Allynne, Jessica Williams, Michael Chernus (of Noah Baumbach's Mistress America), Regina Hall, Gia Gadsby and Aundrea Gadsby.

Virginia and Alessandro Nivola, The Elephant Man, playwrights Will Eno and Alan Ayckbourn with a touch of Alain Resnais and a John Singer Sargent portrait, form a frame to our conversation. I connect Jim's composer Mark Orton (out of Alexander Payne's Nebraska) to Walter Slezak in Alfred Hitchcock's Lifeboat, Jean-Pierre Melville's Le Silence De La Mer, Marlene Dietrich in Stanley Kramer's Judgement at Nuremberg and Madeline Kahn in Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles, and he connects Chernus and Clement to Men In Black 3.

Jemaine Clement as Will Henry: "He is very present and open…"

More classic British horror heads to Blu-ray as Eureka! Entertainment announces the release of Freddie Francis' 1965 shocker The Skull, arriving on dual-format Blu-ray and DVD on 26 October.Perhaps best known as an Oscar-winning cinematographer, shooting such acclaimed works as The Elephant Man, The French Lieutenant's Woman, Glory and Cape Fear, Freddie Francis also directed a raft of horror flicks throughout the 1960s and 70s. After a successful spell at Hammer, Francis moved across to the newly launched Amicus Productions, where he would help shape them into the only British company to rival Hammer's vice-like grip on the country's horror scene.Adapted from a novel by Robert "Psycho" Bloch, The Skull reunites Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee for a chilling tale of obsession and the occult,...

Modern life is homogenised and not as much fun, says John Hurt

We’re obsessed with the dangers of alcohol and political correctness, says Hurt, who stars in Radio 4’s Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell

Sir John Hurt has bemoaned the homogenised state of modern society, in which excessive warnings about the danger of alcohol abound and making a pass at a woman is fraught with risks.

The 75-year-old actor, whose film credits include The Elephant Man, The Naked Civil Servant and the Harry Potter films said life was more fun in the days when he hellraised with the likes of Peter O’Toole and Oliver Reed.

Watch: 4-Minute Tribute To David Lynch's Masterful Film Work

22 July 2015 1:50 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Vimeo-er Alex Kalogeropoulos’s series, “Cinemasters,” is described as focusing “on film's most prominent and influential auteurs, past and present. Their achievements in directing simply cannot be outmatched and their influence on the art of cinema will forever be existent.” It is in no way surprising, then, that his sophomore episode is devoted to none other than David Lynch. A comprehensive effort, Kalogeropoulos’s supercut includes every Lynch feature (with the exception of 2002’s “Rabbits”—one some might classify as such), though he purposefully omits the director’s shorts and television output. Lynch fans will effortlessly spot the man’s cinematic feats, such as “Eraserhead,” “The Elephant Man,” “Blue Velvet,” and “Mulholland Drive.” And (no less important) no David Lynch supercut without “Dune,” “Wild at Heart,” “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me,” “Lost Highway,” or “Inland Empire.” Among Lynch’s cinematography (and the movies featured in Kalogeropoulos’s supercut), only “The. »
