Cauldron of Blood Blu-ray / DVD Release Details & Cover Art

8 August 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Reclusive blind artist Franz Badulescu makes beautiful life-like sculptures, but as photographer Claude Marchand discovers, they may be a little too realistic. There’s something macabre going on at Franz’s Spanish castle in 1971′s Cauldron of Blood (aka Blind Man’s Bluff), starring horror legend Boris Karloff, and Olive Films is bringing the film’s murderous mystery to Blu-ray and DVD this fall.

Coming to Blu-ray and DVD on October 14th, Cauldron of Blood will be available in time to secure a spot in Halloween movie marathons. For those unfamiliar with the Euro horror film, we have the synopsis and a look at the cover art (image courtesy of Amazon!):

“In a clever twist on the sculptor/murderer theme that runs throughout horror film history, the legendary Boris Karloff stars as blind artist Franz Badulescu, who creates startlingly lifelike statues with the help of his protective daughter, Viveca Lindfors »

Exclusive Video Interview: Ed Harris Talks Snowpiercer and Creepshow

27 June 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This week, South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho’s latest film, Snowpiercer, comes roaring into theaters courtesy of The Weinstein Company. During a recent press day, we spoke with Harris about his approach to the role of Wilford- a character who doesn’t necessarily get a lot of screen time, but has a huge hand in many of the film’s major turning points. Also, because this writer is a huge Creepshow fan and anyone who has seen the film knows just how amazing and memorable Harris’ performance was in the Father’s Day segment, we got Harris to quickly chat about the smooth dance moves he busted out while shooting the 1982 horror classic.

Set in the post-apocalyptic future where the Earth has entered into a new Ice Age and the only survivors left reside on a perpetual-motion train, also named Snowpiercer, the very fate of humanity hangs in the balance once a revolution breaks out. »

24 May 2014 12:10 AM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Kevin Scott, MoreHorror.com

Heavy Metal (1981)

Director: Gerald Potterton

Writers: Daniel Goldberg, Len Blum, Dan O’Bannon, Richard Corben, Bernie Wrightson, Angus McKie, Jean Giraud

Voice talents: John Candy, Eugene Levy, Richard Romanus, Al Waxman, John Vernon

Soundtrack artists: Sammy Hagar, Journey, Riggs, Devo, Blue Oyster Cult, Cheap Trick, Don Felder, Donald Fagen, Nazareth, Grand Funk Railroad, Black Sabbath, Trust, Stevie Nicks

If you were a kid in a record store in the early 1980’s, you saw this poster. Our record store was poorly lit with carpet crawling up the walls where you could thumb through albums with provocative covers while your parents ran their errands. Ahh, innocence lost. I couldn’t recall an animated film like this before or since, but the most significant thing that I can remember about “Heavy Metal” is that it taught me that animation can have adult and horrific elements. This movie scared me a little. »

Fright Exclusive Interview with Ghoulish Gary Pullin at Texas Frightmare Weekend!

15 May 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

 

If you’ve ever bought a score from Waxwork Records, a print from Mondo, a shirt from Fright-Rags, or a magazine from Rue Morgue, there’s a good chance that you own a piece of art from Ghoulish Gary Pullin. His unique vision allows him to take the love and admiration that all of us horror fans feel about our favorite work, and display it affectionately in his designs. I’m not just a friend of Gary’s but a fan as well, with some of his work decorating my very own walls. It’s always a pleasure talking to Gary at Texas Frightmare, not only because he’s a kind person, but also because he’s always coming up with new and exciting creations. In this interview, we discuss his pieces for Goblin’s tours, his inspiration behind his art for Texas Frightmare Weekend 2014, and who he’d like »

Heather’s Favorite Mean Girls of Horror

9 May 2014 2:49 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With Lucky McKee and Chris Sivertson’s All Cheerleaders Die arriving on VOD this week, I thought this would be the perfect time to celebrate some of my very favorite “mean girls” of the horror genre. And while I do love our beloved heroines as much as the next genre fan, there’s just something really fun about watching powerful women flaunt their cruelty and penchant for torturing others every now and again.

Check out my Favorite Mean Girls of Horror picks below and see if any of your favorite vengeful vixens made the list! Caution: Some of these may be a bit spoilery for the uninitiated!

Nancy Downs (Fairuza Balk)- The Craft

While she may have grown up a total darling in films like Return to Oz and The Worst Witch, Fairuza Balk was the true epitome of a nineties mean girl in The Craft. Her character, Nancy Downs, »

John Harrison’s Creepshow Score Comes to CD in Limited Edition

1 April 2014 1:12 PM, PDT | Horror News | See recent Horror News news »

One of my favorite horror film scores is to the first George A. Romero film that I ever saw, his 1982 cotton candy comic book film Creepshow. I always loved the music to this film and it was available for years on both LP and later on CD in a significantly truncated version that played very well as a listening experience but was woefully lacking as a representation of the film’s score since many … Continue reading →

Book Review: 'Stephen King Films Faq' by Scott Von Doviak

13 March 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Writing about Stephen King movies is always an interesting – if daunting – prospect. If one wanted to be a stickler about things, there are really only a few actual “Stephen King films”: from Creepshow to A Good Marriage, they’re listed under "Screenplays" on the “also by Stephen King” page at the front of most of the man’s books. But that’s limiting. Since Brian DePalma adapted Stephen King’s first novel, Carrie, for the big screen in 1976, the Stephen King Movie has been a genre unto itself, encompassing myriad directors, writers, mediums, and styles, all tied together by the fact that Stephen King wrote something that served as inspiration. Where the publishing history of Stephen King is fairly straightforward (with a few hiccups), the movie history is chaotic, because making movies is more complicated than making books. Deals are made, then broken. Screenplays are written and discarded. Budgets are cut, »

Waxwork Records has thus far released the soundtracks to Rosemary’s Baby, Day of the Dead, and Re-Animator on the vinyl LP, a format that was declared dead in the early 1980’s when compact discs became all the rage. They have just announced the upcoming release of John Harrison’s music to George A. Romero’s 1982 fan favorite Creepshow. How much of the music from the film will be on the record is unknown at … Continue reading →

Exclusive: Director Joe Begos Talks Aliens, Effects, and Sequels for 'Almost Human'

18 February 2014 5:00 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Almost Human is a throwback to the sci-fi/horror flicks of the 1980s. Old school scares, alien invaders, and all practical effects. We spoke to writer/director Joe Begos, who talked about making his first feature, filming outside Los Angeles, and where a sequel will go if he has the chance.

Since we last spoke at Fantastic Fest, what has been going on? What has the response been like?

Pretty good, I guess. There is a lot of negative stuff out there along with the positive stuff - like anything else. I feel like the people I made it for, the people who like these kinds of movies, are really responding to it. That’s really all I wanted. It’s not a movie that everyone is going to like. It’s not a “four quadrant” picture - like you don’t bring your grandma and your dog to see it. »
