Stephen King Week: Creepshow Q&A with Adrienne Barbeau

31 October 2015 11:56 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

I love horror anthology films and like many of you out there, Creepshow is the one I judge all others against. Released in 1982, George A. Romero and Stephen King's tribute to EC Comics is filled with talented actors, but Adrienne Barbeau really steals the show as Billie, a character that couldn't be more different from who Adrienne really is. As a Halloween treat for our readers, I caught up with her to talk about her role in "The Crate," convention appearances, her work as an author, and more.

How did you first hear about Creepshow and what were your impressions of Stephen King's screenplay?

My agents sent me the script along with an offer to play "just call me Billie - everyone does". I read it and thought, oh no, this is way too bloody for me. At that time, I think the only horror film I'd ever »

Deadly Pleasures: The Dark Half

25 October 2015 3:27 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In the vast pantheon of Stephen King movie adaptations, there tends to be a pretty clear demarcation between those films widely accepted as “good” and the rest, which are either dismissed as being bad or else forgotten altogether. The accepted wisdom is that George A. Romero’s 1993 adaptation of The Dark Half falls into that latter camp. That’s a mistake.

Despite being one of the greatest horror filmmakers of all time, Romero has never had an easy career. He redefined horror several times over with his first two Living Dead films but was cheated out of the royalties for directing one of the most successful independent films ever made. He had big commercial success working with a major studio on Creepshow, but he couldn’t get his next movie financed the way he wanted to make it. The late ’80s–’90s were particularly tough for Romero, with two difficult »

Drive-In Dust Offs: Demon Seed

24 October 2015 11:24 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Demon Seed (1977) was the latest in an ever growing subgenre of science fiction film: Technodoubt (okay, I just made that up). But as the world started to catch up with its imagination (Apple Computers was born in ’76), and technology raged forward like a silicon locomotive, Hollywood searched for ways to exploit mankind’s natural fear of progress. From the dangerously malfunctioning Hal in 2001 (1968), to the murderous androids of Westworld (’73), rich veins of cybernetic carnage were mined for maximum cinematic paranoia. Demon Seed upped the ante by downloading the menace right into the home.

Released in April by MGM, the film was not a commercial success by any means, but certainly drew attention from critics due to its unusual (and quite absurd) high concept story, a showcase performance from Julie Christie, and a piqued interest in director Donald Cammell. Regardless of the gateway, Demon Seed remains a unique genre treatise on dominance and loss. »

Pieces of Terror: Tales Of Halloween and a Look Back at Horror Anthologies

21 October 2015 5:24 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With the impossibly fun Tales of Halloween now in wide release, it seems like as good a time as any to dig deep into one of my favorite subgenres of horror: the anthology film. From Tales from the Crypt to Tales from the Darkside to Tales from the Hood, the horror anthology offers something for everyone. And apparently that something is “tales.”

In speaking with most of the directors from Tales of Halloween, there was consensus in their feelings about what makes for a great anthology film: singularity of vision and consistency of quality. Both can be difficult to achieve, as the format practically dictates that some segments be stronger than others or express a different voice. But when an anthology can achieve even one of those things, there’s the potential for real horror movie magic.

There are great anthologies made by one filmmaker, among them Mario Bava’s Black Sabbath, »

Interview with Tales Of Halloween’s Darren Lynn Bousman

19 October 2015 4:29 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

To celebrate the recent release of the horror anthology Tales of Halloween (now available on iTunes and all VOD platforms), Daily Dead spoke to the filmmakers behind the movie to discuss the project, their individual contributions and more.

Darren Lynn Bousman exploded onto the horror scene in 2005, taking over the Saw franchise with Saw II and turning the series into a household name at the helm of the first three sequels. He has since balanced studio projects with fiercely independent, more personal cult films like Repo! The Genetic Opera and The Devil’s Carnival. His contribution to Tales of Halloween, “The Night Billy Raised Hell,” stars Barry Bostwick as Satan pulling a series of dark pranks on Halloween night. It’s the lightest thing Bousman has made yet, and also the funniest.

While there has been comedy in some of the other films you’ve made, “The Night Billy Raised »

A host of familiar genre faces and directors come together to tell ten tales of terror in this Halloween anthology.

You can forget Halloween being a time when a new Saw movie – or any random gore movie for that matter – would hit the cinema just to keep in the spirit of things for a day or two around All Hallows Eve, because ever since Trick ‘r Treat came along a few years back and defined what a festive Halloween movie should be by creating the macabre autumnal feel that Halloween evokes, »

'Tales of Halloween' Review: A Creepy Cocktail of Scares and Laughs

17 October 2015 2:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With a cast that includes Barry Bostwick, Cerina Vincent, Adrienne Barbeau and John Landis, Tales of Halloween is a welcome addition to a genre that is the mainstay of the low budget artist. With a bunch of horror tales woven together in a manner that recalls the iconic Creepshow, this movie works because the people behind it are "horror people." They understand what an anthology series needs to have. With halloween around the corner, Tales of Halloween is truly a movie of, for and about its time.

There hasn't been a movie like Tales of Halloween in a long while. This probably explains why it feels so fresh, even though horror films are well worn in the anthology realm. Set in suburban neighborhoods that make Tales of Halloween imminently relatable, this starts off by instantly letting you know it knows what it is doing. In fact, from the moment the title sequence unspools, »

Interview with Tales Of Halloween’s Dave Parker

14 October 2015 11:39 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

To celebrate the October 16th release of the horror anthology Tales of Halloween, Daily Dead spoke to the filmmakers behind the movie to discuss the project, their individual contributions and more.

Writer/director Dave Parker has been part of the horror scene for many years, coming up through Charles Band’s Full Moon Features (where he directed his first feature, The Dead Hate the Living!) before going on to direct the excellent The Hills Run Red and ColdWater. His short “Sweet Tooth” kicks off Tales of Halloween in terrific fashion with real Halloween atmosphere, gore, and wickedly dark humor. Parker talks about the origins of his cautionary tale, the casting of some beloved genre stars and the pressures of going first.

So you know you’re going to be making this anthology with your filmmaking friends and you know you have free reign to do whatever you want. Where do »

Interview with Tales Of Halloween’s John Skipp and Andrew Kasch

13 October 2015 1:52 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

To celebrate the October 16th release of the horror anthology Tales of Halloween, Daily Dead spoke to the filmmakers behind the movie to discuss the project, their individual contributions, and more.

The only directing duo contributing to Tales of Halloween, John Skipp (writer of A Nightmare on Elm Street 5) and Andrew Kasch (Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy) have a lot to say about making a movie with their friends and the current state of horror. Their segment, “This Means War,” about a pair of neighbors feuding over Halloween decorations, deals with this very subject.

One of the things I love about Tales of Halloween is that so many of the segments deal with different aspects of the holiday. Yours tackles Halloween decorations... sort of. Where did the inspiration for your short, "This Means War", come from?

Andrew Kasch: Halloween haunts are my jam! Each year, I hit »

Interview with Tales Of Halloween’s Mike Mendez

7 October 2015 11:26 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

To celebrate the October 16th release of the horror anthology Tales of Halloween, Daily Dead spoke to the filmmakers behind the movie to discuss the project, their individual contributions and more.

Mike Mendez is best known as the director of films like The Convent, The Gravedancers, Big Ass Spider! and, most recently, the horror comedy Lavalantula for Syfy. He’s both a producer and a director on Tales of Halloween, contributing the ’80s slasher-inspired “Friday the 31st.”

This project started with you and Axelle Carolyn, right?

Mike Mendez: It’s Axelle’s concept and she’s the one who got the ball rolling. She told a few of us about it, and I brought in Epic Pictures and got it financed. From that point on, it’s been Axelle’s and my burden to bear, for better or worse. A very fun burden to bear.

Q&A with A Christmas Horror Story Director Steve Hoban

2 October 2015 3:23 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The cast and crew of A Christmas Horror Story have stuffed the cinematic stockings with a delightfully devious new take on the holiday season. With A Christmas Horror Story now out in select theaters and viewable on VOD and iTunes, Daily Dead caught up with Steve Hoban—one of the film's three directors—to discuss working with William Shatner, setting the horror anthology film in the same town from the Ginger Snaps movies, and much more.

Thanks for taking the time to converse with Daily Dead today. I really enjoyed A Christmas Horror Story and believe it will become a holiday cult classic that horror fans can happily unwrap each year. How did you get involved with this project and what appealed to you the most after reading the script for the first time?

Steve Hoban: Thank you for saying that. As true fans of the genre, we made »

50 Greatest Comic Book Movie Adaptations

1 September 2015 7:40 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

40. Road to Perdition

One of the more surprising and lesser-known facts about Sam Mendes’ second film, Road to Perdition, is that it’s actually adapted from a graphic novel of the same name by Max Allan Collins. The plot follows Michael Sullivan (Tom Hanks), an Irish mob enforcer as he goes on the run with his son Michael Jr. after Jr. witnesses a murder and their family is killed in an effort to cover up any witnesses. There’s many great things in this film that standout, such as Jude Law’s creepy performance as assassin Harlen Maguire, one of Paul Newman’s final and finest performances as mob boss John Rooney, and Hollywood got an early look at the talent of Daniel Craig as the unstable Connor Rooney. However, it’s the climax that remains the most memorable thing in it, featuring some of the most iconic work from »

I, Madman | Blu-ray Review

21 July 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Scream Factory brings late 80’s horror thriller I, Madman to Blu-ray, one of two notable cult classics from Hungarian/Canadian director Tibor Tabaks. Beginning in Canadian television, Tabaks reached notoriety with his 1987 sophomore feature, The Gate, a bizarre creature feature which terrorized children with its forced perspective monsters and introduced the world to child actor Stephen Dorff. He’d follow that up with this pulpy adaptation of a screenplay by David Chaskin (A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge). A gothic murder mystery plays out in the eternally uneasy streets of a hazy, 1989 Hollywood in this simple yet strange forgotten oddity.

Bookworm Virginia (Jenny Wright) works in a used bookstore, often finding herself attracted to lurid, violent fiction. After an influx of random materials coming in from an estate sale, she finds a 1950s set thriller, Much of Madness, More of Sin, a visceral novel about a mad »

Will 'Tales of Halloween' be the next great horror anthology?

14 July 2015 6:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Feature-length horror movie anthologies are pretty hit and miss, but there are a few that have been well-received including "Creepshow," "Tales from the Crypt," "Trilogy of Terror," "V/H/S," "Trick 'r Treat" and 1945's "Dead of Night." The latest entry in the sub-genre is "Tales of Halloween," which features segments directed by such horror luminaries as Lucky McKee ("May"), Neil Marshall ("The Descent") and Darren Lynn Bousman (the "Saw" franchise) and featuring appearances by fright flick icons like Lin Shaye, John Landis, Joe Dante, Adrienne Barbeau and -- my all-time favorite -- "Twilight's" BooBoo Stewart. So will it be worth a watch? Check out the Comic Con-debuted trailer below and decide for yourself. Given the sheer number of directors involved, expect it to be all over the map. »

‘Tales From the Crypt’ Volume 1 The early days of the horror icon crawl back from the grave

22 June 2015 7:10 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Few comics sit at the intersection of “fan beloved,” “industry defining,” and “absolutely impossible to acquire” the way the EC Comics library does. For a while they almost felt like Comics’ very own Holy Grail. On one hand, you’ve got the Tales From The Crypt brand itself, which has left an indelible mark on pop culture with films, cable TV series, Saturday morning cartoons, and a line of revival graphic novels from Papercutz — a proud legacy, to be sure. But on the other hand, you enter into the more nebulous region of pop cultural osmosis, and it’s there that the legend of Bill Gaines’ little comic line that could grows to gargantuan levels. The baby boomers that ate his ghoulish “mags” up in the early ‘50s eventually grew into the genre fiction movers and shakers of the ‘70s and ‘80s — from cult directors like George Romero and Joe Dante, »

Let's celebrate Father's Day with these 5 murderous movie dads

19 June 2015 5:16 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's Father's Day, meaning it's time to celebrate the man who gave you everything. Or maybe he didn't! Maybe he took off before you were even born. Maybe he was always away on business. Or maybe he just didn't love you enough. Hopefully none of those were true for you, but if they were: I am so sorry. Let's be real: Father's Day isn't fun and games for everybody. But even if your dad fell short, look at the bright side: at least he didn't try to kill you (I hope!). To afford some perspective, below I've listed five murderous movie dads who will make you immediately run out and buy a card saying "Thanks for always being there, Dad" or "You're the greatest, Dad" or "Thanks for not trying to cut me up into little pieces with an ax, Dad." That last one you're probably going to have to make yourself, »
