The undersea horror movies of the late 1980s

31 May 2017 4:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jun 2, 2017

Inspired by James Cameron's The Abyss, the late 80s brought with it a wave of brilliantly cheesy undersea horrors, Ryan writes...

Hollywood studios occasionally have an uncanny knack of announcing almost identical film projects at the same time. In the 1980s, we had rival police dog movies K-9 and Turner And Hooch. The 90s saw the release of rival eruption movies (Dante's Peak and Volcano), opposing killer space rock pictures (Deep Impact and Armageddon) and duelling insect comedies (Antz and A Bug's Life). We provided a detailed run-down on these rival movies back in 2015.

Around the year 1989, meanwhile, film producers briefly fell in love with a curiously specific genre: undersea sci-fi horror. Between January 1989 and the spring of 1990, no fewer than five films all came out with a similar theme - DeepStar Six was first, followed by Leviathan, Lords Of The Deep, »

Hair-Raising Prometheus Sequel Shows 79-year-old Scott Still Has It While Dual Fassbender Is Show-Stealer

14 May 2017 5:08 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Alien: Covenant' review: Michael Fassbender plays android brothers David and Walter in this effective sequel to Ridley Scott's muddled 'Prometheus.' 'Alien: Covenant' review: Recapturing 'some of the excitement, awe, and horror' of 1979 original Before we get to Alien: Covenant, a rant about its predecessor, Prometheus. The problem with Ridley Scott's 2012 return to the Alien universe is that the more we learned about the skeletal, seething, phallic, vicious xenomorphs, the looser their hold on our cinematic subconscious. Much of the effectiveness of Scott's 1979 franchise starter lies in its cruel randomness; the tragedy of a horrible death being the result of bumping into the wrong stranger on the wrong street on the wrong night. Jettisoning such primal simplicity, Prometheus suggested a farfetched connection between the aliens and mankind. The result was a muddled attempt at expanding the Alien universe so it could address no less than the origins of humanity. »

Radiohead’s Coachella Set Interrupted Twice by Technical Difficulties, Upsetting Fans

15 April 2017 8:38 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Sound problems plagued Radiohead’s performance at Coachella Music and Arts Festival Friday night — prompting the band to leave the stage twice during their headlining set and causing frustration for fans.

The trouble first began on the Coachella main stage during the third song of their set (2016’s “Ful Stop”), Variety reported, causing the band to come to a full stop while the sound from the speakers were restored.

The band made it through one more song — 1997’s “Airbag” — before the audio glitch occurred again, Billboard reported, cutting out midway through 2007’s “15 Step.”

The sound dropout was met with several bursts of violent feedback, »

Radiohead Sound Cuts Off at Coachella Causing Band to Walk Off Stage Twice (Video)

15 April 2017 6:41 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Radiohead had disastrous tech problems headlining the first night of Coachella ... walking off stage not once, but twice. The sound glitches started early in the set ... and only got worse. The first walk off went down after the sound cut out completely for most of "15 Step." The band returned, and so did the pesky problem ... "Let Down" was a let down so they left again. Eventually sound techs got it under control and the band »

Sundance 2017: Jaunt Announces Virtual Reality Series Reimagining of The Lawnmower Man Movie

19 January 2017 11:21 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The Sundance Film Festival is just getting started in Park City, Utah, and virtual reality company Jaunt Inc. is heating things up at the winter event by announcing a Vr series reimagining of The Lawnmower Man, the 1992 film based on the Stephen King short story of the same name.

A far cry from King’s short story upon which it is based, Brett Leonard’s The Lawnmower Man movie heavily incorporated virtual reality in its plot. No details on the Vr series’ plot are known at this time, other than the fact that it will be a “reimagination  of the film.”

We have the full press release with more details on Janut’s upcoming Vr slate below, as well as trailer for The Lawnmower Man film, which stars Pierce Brosnan and Jeff Fahey. In case you missed it, Scream Factory recently announced an upcoming collector’s edition Blu-ray of The Lawnmower Man. »
