Preview of Sleigher: The Heavy Metal Santa Claus #1

24 July 2016 2:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Action Lab: Danger Zone’s new series Sleigher: The Heavy Metal Santa Claus #1 gets underway on Wednesday, and we’ve got a preview for you here…

Sleigher is the most recent (and reluctant) heir of the centuries old lineage to bear the title of “Santa Claus.” He’d rather slam back bourbon than glasses of milk, and blast metal instead of carols. But when evil rears its head before he’s delivered a single present, maybe he’s found his true calling — dishing out a holiday ass whoopin’!!!

Christmas in July…headbanger style – featuring a limited edition variant cover by Tony Fleecs (My Little Pony).

Sleigher: The Heavy Metal Santa Claus #1 is out on Wednesday, July 27th, priced $3.99.

Avant-Garde Legend Jonas Mekas Offers Filmmaking Advice in New Book Excerpt

10 July 2016 12:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jonas Mekas has been at the forefront of avant-garde cinema for more than half a decade, and in that time has accrued a wealth of knowledge that few could match. The 93-year-old luminary has condensed some of his insights into 13 precepts for aspiring experimental filmmakers to follow in “Akademie X,” a new book featuring lessons from 36 “tutors” offering advice in their respective fields.

Number four seems one of the most pertinent. “I believe that the two best ways to begin the journey are: one, to work with another filmmaker whose work you admire, and learn the art and craft the way the old Renaissance artists did or two, by acquiring a camera, any camera, and beginning to film/tape as a daily practice.” As with Werner Herzog and countless other filmmakers, Mekas also insists upon the importance of reading — and being discerning about it. »

Drive-In Dust Offs: Trick Or Treat (1986)

9 July 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

I’ll confess. I have a real mushy soft spot for Heavy Metal music. Back in the ‘80s, in my teen years, my buddy Nick and I would crank the latest from Kiss, Scorpions, Judas Priest, Cinderella, etc. And there’s something specifically about Metal tailored to teenagers – that heightened sense of drama we feel at that age, the hormonal urges, and the need to push back against ‘society’. (Right – but please give us our allowances to consume products, okay?)

But Metal also equated with power, which was aligned with evil, and before long, many parents came up with the notion that Metal was Satan’s music. (Is the Pmrc still a thing? Brr.) Well, marketing is marketing, and few Metal bands fought the label (hell, some even embraced it). So it seemed the timing was right for that satanic safe haven, the Horror Film, to meet up with the »

Near the end of “Breaking A Monster,” one of the three twelve-year-old kids who form the hip, new, and almost famous heavy metal band Unlocking the Truth complains to the filmmakers that he can’t play “Grand Theft Auto,” since he has to constantly practice with his band mates in order to release their first single […]

Nova Seed: A Heavy Metal Inspired, Retro-Laced Animated Feature

22 June 2016 2:40 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

In the tradition of Heavy Metal comes an all new animated sci-fi fable, painstakingly hand-animated over four years by Canadian Nick Diliberto.

Below you'll find two trailers for this simply awesome work. I can't wait to see the whole thing.

About the Film:

An eye-popping animated sci-fi fable in the tradition of Moebius and Miyazaki, painstakingly hand-animated by independent Canadian animator Nick Diliberto over four years. Despite spinning a familiar yarn that features a reluctant hero combating an evil subterranean mad-scientist (perfectly named Doctor Mind Skull), Diliberto peppers every frame with wonderfully eclectic details that teases a much larger canvas as he catapults the audience from set-piece to set-piece with an aesthetic sensibility that feels both nos [Continued ...] »

Trailer For Heavy Metal, Coming Of Age Documentary ‘Breaking A Monster’ Rocks Out

3 June 2016 9:55 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Say the words “heavy metal” and a certain image comes to mind: mean-looking, hard-living dudes, tattoos, and some unusually placed piercings. What you don’t generally see are three young, African-American kids from Brooklyn. But that — along with some incredible talent — is just what made Unlocking The Truth a sensation, and the upcoming documentary […]

‘Battleborn’ Review (PS4)

14 May 2016 11:04 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Let me get something off my chest before delving further into this review… I’m not a huge fan of Borderlands or Moba’s either for that matter, so I’m not exactly the target audience for the likes of Battleborn. But even I was willing to give the game the benefit of the doubt, even despite my possible prejudices – after all, Battleborn has been one of The most hyped games across current-gen platforms (well, unless you count Overwatch and Uncharted 4 for PS4 that is). And all that hype has to stand for something right?

Wrong.

Straight out of the gate Battleborn commits two of the ultimate gaming sins for me. One, you can’t play without an update At All and (more importantly) two, you have to sit through an opening cinematic, without any possibility of skipping straight to the action. Even worse for Battleborn is that the cinematic »

[Review] Belladonna of Sadness

6 May 2016 7:21 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It all begins with Once Upon a Time. Such a simple introduction for Belladonna of Sadness, a 1973 Japanese animated feature whose newly found legacy includes a decades-long disappearance, a dramatic re-emergence, and a growing reputation as a frenzied, pornographic freakout.

The final entry in anime elder statesman Osamu Tezuka‘s erotic Animerama trilogy has remained largely unknown to even the most die-hard cult cinephiles, a fate determined after its commercial failure bankrupted Tezuka’s production company, Muchi Films. That explains why the psychedelic feminist fairy tale fell by the wayside as similar X-rated animated contemporaries, including the T&A fantasies of Ralph Bakshi, lived on to titillate and traumatize poorly supervised video-age kids. Nearly two years after being acquired by Cinelicious Pics, this Aquarius Age curiosity returns in all its fully restored, 4K glory to reclaim its rightful place as a cultural artifact whose explicit themes still resonate today.

Mike Gold, Unabashed Fanboy

4 May 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Here’s why I conflate legendary bluesman Robert Johnson with legendary cartoonist/illustrator Jim Steranko.

Johnson took American roots music and molded it into The Blues. Brilliantly, I might add, having composed and recorded such classics as “Sweet Home Chicago,” “Terraplane Blues,” “Hellhound on My Trail,” “Love in Vain” and “Cross Road Blues,” a.k.a. “Crossroads.” In all, he produced only 29 tracks, every one between 1929 and 1938

Steranko took the comic art form and broke all the barriers, reinventing and reenergizing comics storytelling and design. He did so with equal brilliance, having produced such award-winning and virtually always-in-print features as Nick Fury Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain America, The X-Men, Superman, the graphic novel Chandler: Red Tide, and Heavy Metal’s adaptation of the movie Outland. The bulk of this work was published between 1965 and 1976, but by then Steranko had pretty much moved on to painting »

NYC Weekend Watch: Polanski, Akerman, Ozu, Prince & More

28 April 2016 5:23 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Metrograph

“Fassbinder’s Top 10” offers Salò on Friday, Walsh‘s The Naked and the Dead & Visconti‘s The Damned on Saturday, and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes on Sunday. All are on 35mm.

Roman Polanski‘s Frantic shows this Sunday, as does Ashes and Embers.

Spirited Away and The Cat Returns play as part of “Studio Ghibli Weekends. »

Artist Spotlight: BeastPop

11 March 2016 10:21 AM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

My name is Jared, aka BeastPop (with my brand name being BeastWreck), and I make illustrations and designs featuring all the stuff I like, ranging from cartoon monsters and beasts to horror-themed artwork. I sell these designs on a bunch of stuff like shirts, mugs, and art prints through my various web shops, and I mess around with character design when I can.

I prefer to work traditionally with some good ol’ fashioned pencils, pens, and brushes on illustration paper — pencil sketching with graphite or colored pencils, and inking with an assortment of pens and watercolor brushes with india ink. I will often digitally ink for convenience sake, however, and most of my coloring work is done digitally.

I drew all the time as a kid, filling up reams of paper, and drawing on the walls, etc, but I didn’t really take it seriously as a potential profession until much later in life. »
