The Greatest Horror Anthology Film Segments of All Time

25 October 2014 7:35 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Popular in the 1960s and early 1970s with more rare appearances in the 1980s, 1990s and the 2000s, the anthology-style horror film has made a solid resurgence in recent years with such portmanteau releases as The ABCs of Death films and the V/H/S series.

With Mexico Barbaro, Fear Paris and other projects in various stages of completion, the anthology horror film looks to continue to be an important part of the horror cinema landscape.

Some anthology films employ a framing or wraparound sequence in an attempt to connect the segments that make up the film while others dispense with this classic Amicus-style approach entirely and simply present a collection of short films connected by genre.

Either way, a horror anthology film is ultimately about the quality of its individual segments and this article will take you on a tour of the greatest horror anthology segments of all time. »

Blu-ray Review – The Incredible Melting Man (1977)

13 October 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Incredible Melting Man, 1977.

Directed by William Sachs.

Starring Alex Rebar, Burr DeBenning, Myron Healey, Ann Sweeny, and Michael Alldredge.

Synopsis:

An astronaut returns to Earth after flying through the rings of Saturn and mutates into a gooey mess whilst going on a murderous rampage.

With one of the best movie titles ever, The Incredible Melting Man is a 1977 horror film with its roots in 1950s sci-fi and the horror comics of the day, where gloopy, radioactive monsters would roam the country and infect innocent people whilst the world was under the threat of nuclear war. The full details of the plot are basically what is in the summary above – astronaut Steve West (Alex Rebar) and his crew are flying their spacecraft through the rings of Saturn when Steve suffers some sort of seizure and blacks out. He wakes up in a hospital back on Earth covered in bandages and, »

Don Keefer Has Passed Away

25 September 2014 12:22 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Don Keefer left an indelible mark on the minds of horror and sci-fi fans with his crucial and courageous role in a classic episode of The Twilight Zone and his memorable turn in “The Crate” segment of George A. Romero and Stephen King’s Creepshow. Though his impressive onscreen personalities will last forever, we’re sad to report that Don Keefer has passed away at the age of 98.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Don Keefer passed away of natural causes on September 7th. In the 1961 “It’s a Good Life” episode of The Twilight Zone, Don played Dan Hollis, a man celebrating his birthday with his wife, a few friends, and the six-year-old mind-reading malevolent mutant, Anthony Fremont. Don turned in a powerful performance, standing up to the young telepathic murderer and challenging his friends to put an end to the madness. His desperate speech was a spine-tingler and helped »

21 September 2014 1:19 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Oh, mid-September. The Halloween décor is creeping up on us, the candy corn is flowing like cheap vodka at a bachelorette party, and the biggest decision in your life is what costume to wear. True, the temperatures (if you are living in certain parts of California) are in the hundreds, and not very Halloween or fall-like whatsoever, but we’re currently less than a week away from the fall season, and that favorite time of year is in our hearts. So,..that means it is time to kick off the season with some classic films that are guaranteed to give us horror fans the excitement we need to speed up the coming of October. I thought I’d kick things off with my 5 Films To Get You Stoked For Halloween!!!

Exclusive Film Blog - Week 3 with Spirit World Films' Creature Feature

27 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

We're back with the third installment of Dread Central's exclusive on-the-set coverage from Atlanta for Spirit World Films' Creature Feature, and this week we tackle "How to Reinvent the Indie Wheel... Or Die Trying."

Spirit World is the brainchild of three talented indie trendsetters: Chase Smith, Lance Paul and Edward Boss. These Southerners are turning the game upside down on what the true meaning of indie global films is.

With films budgeted at less than $20k, their combined multi “hat-wearing” skills are proving that you don’t need a giant budget nor a Hollywood soundstage to create cult classics.

Creature Feature is comprised of four short vignettes and one overall story that connects them all, similar to classics such as Creepshow and Trick 'r Treat.

Do clowns scare you? Have you ever looked at a scarecrow and wondered, "What if?" Are zombies or naked witches your thing? Or what about »

TV Review: Monsters – S1E1: “The Feverman”

25 August 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Horror is a genre that transcends all mediums, but package it in the form of an anthology-television series and you’ve found the key to my heart. If you’re familiar with my posts on Icons, you’ll know I’m a sucker for this stuff, especially Freddy’S Nightmares! Despite the fact that they really aren’t too many bonafide classics (apart from the obvious usual suspects), it’s a format I enjoy if anything for the eclectic variety and ability to quickly invest in a segment without worrying about continuity. One of my morning rituals is to turn on The Twilight Zone, Amazing Stories, or something of that ilk while I eat breakfast for those reasons. If I love it, I’ll continually revisit it (“Walking Distance” in particular), and if I’m not too keen on it, it’s ok because the next episode will be entirely independent of itself. »

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. »

Heavy Metal (1981)

Director: Gerald Potterton

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. »

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.

Heather’s Favorite Mean Girls of Horror

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!

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 →
