Blu Review: They Live: Collector's Edition

20 November 2012 9:15 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

John Carpenter has an interesting track record of films. Many are considered cult classics like Halloween, The Thing, and Escape from New York. Others are held in high esteem by some and shunned by others. I'm referring to The FogPrince of Darkness, and Vampires. A select few are seen as outright disasters. One prime example everyone would agree on would be "Ghosts of Mars." A film that seems to fall just a little shy of being considered a shining example of his work is They Live.

Two drifters try to make ends meet while working construction and living in a shanty town. One of the men, Nada (Roddy Piper), begins to notice suspicious activities occurring in the church across the street. He investigates and finds a small group of people who discovered aliens have taken over the world and dominate us subliminally through hidden messages delivered via television, billboards, »

Shout! Factory has been kicking ass on the DVD/Blu-ray front for a while now with a mix of genre and pop culture releases that appeal to the movie/TV lovers in all of us.

They’ve already released some pretty fantastic HD transfers and Collector’s Edition Blu-ray of Halloween II, The Funhouse, Halloween III: Season of the Witch, Terror Train and They Live, and now they’ve announced their first wave of titles scheduled for 2013… and they include a certain space vampire’s ample and frequently nude assets in glorious high definition. Check below for the list of upcoming awesomeness as well as a look at their exclusive new cover art for From Beyond. Scream »

Disc Spotlight: John Carpenter’s ‘They Live’ Deserves to Occupy a Spot on Your Blu-ray Shelf

7 November 2012 2:00 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

John Carpenter burst onto the genre scene in 1978 with Halloween, but the bulk of his great films came in the 1980s with classics like The Fog, Escape from New York, The Thing, Starman, Big Trouble in Little China and Prince of Darkness. His final film of the decade was a bit of an odd duck though and one that saw his trend of releasing a new movie every year or two come to a halt. They Live was released, not coincidentally, in the last year of Ronald Reagan’s presidency. Sold as a sci-fi/action hybrid the film is a not-so thinly veiled critique of the growing class divide engendered by a Republican mandate that favored a corporate culture and rampant consumerism. The rich were getting richer, the poor were getting poorer and the middle class were doing very little to stop it all. Roddy Piper plays a drifter who arrives in Los Angeles desperate for work »

Greatest Slasher Films (1970 – 1990)

28 October 2012 8:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The definition of a slasher film varies depending on who you ask, but in general, it contains several specific traits that feed into the genre’s formula. Author Vera Dika rather strictly defines the sub-genre in her book Games of Terror by only including films made between 1978 and 1984. In other words, she saw it as a movement. When someone describes Brick, they don’t define it as a noir, but instead neo-noir . In other words, it’s a modern motion picture that prominently utilizes elements of film noir, but with updated themes, content, style, visual elements or media that were absent in those from the 1940s and 1950s. So does one consider Scream a slasher film or a neo-slasher, or simply put, a modern slasher?

Some consider Thirteen Women to be the earliest slasher – released all the way back in 1932. Personally I think that is rubbish. Thirteen Women is more like Desperate Housewives on sedatives. »

10 More Horror Movie Themes For Your Halloween! (2012 Edition!)

28 October 2012 2:59 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Happy (almost) Halloween, faithful fright fiends! My friend Christel had contacted me several weeks ago asking for suggestions of horror movie music that could possibly be used for a skit that one of the performers of her An October Evening event was planning to do. The request was for something a little unconventional rather than an obvious choice, so after brainstorming for a few minutes, I came up with what I thought were some cool, underrated horror movie themes.* The assignment got me thinking about this article I published about 2 years back where I listed out my Top 10 horror movie themes. And while I still stand by all my selections in that piece, I thought it definitely warranted a follow-up article. So without further adieu, here’s 10 More horror movie themes for your Halloween!

Blu-Ray Review: Halloween II (1981)

Halloween II

Stars: Jamie Lee Curtis, Donald Pleasence, Charles Cyphers, Lance Guest, Jeffrey Kramer, Pamela Susan Shoop, Dick Warlock, Leo Rossi | Written by John Carpenter, Debra Hill | Directed by Rick Rosenthal

I wonder what John Carpenter was initially thinking when he ended his career making and undeniably genre defining film, Halloween. When he was writing his screenplay (a brilliant one, at that) with Debra Hill, did he stop and think that A) He was a huge fan of nihilistic endings and what a terrifying feeling it would be for audiences to go home, no doubt the sprawling suburbs featured in his film, or B) He knew deep down that it was sequel bait and by making the film he would go on to make the single, highest grossing independent film of all time. If I was a betting man, and I’m not, I’d still choose A. It was a stamp, »
