The appropriately named prog rock band Goblin is most famous for their collaboration with Dario Argento on his gory giallo films, especially Suspiria, arguably Argento's most well-known and best film to date. Goblin provided Argento with unforgettable soundtracks to Tenebre, Phenomenon, and Deep Red, as well as Argento's 2001 film Sleepless, which brought the band back together again after 22 years. I'm ashamed to say I have not yet seen Sleepless, but after sitting through Argento's more recent movies like Do You Like Hitchcock? and even Mother of Tears, I'm a little wary.
Goblin also supplied soundtracks to other Italian horror movies, as well as giallo and soft porn director Joe D'Amato's Beyond the Darkness. They did the soundtrack to George Romero's Dawn of the Dead, aka Zombi, under the name The Goblins; much later, Shaun of the Dead used one of the songs from the soundtrack in their film »

I like most horror fans have been clamoring for Dario Argento to deliver us something as interesting and exciting as some of his early works. I love stuff like Opera, Phenomena (or Creepers as I remember renting it as a kid), Tenebre (aka Unsane), Deep Red and of course Susperia. Hell, I even love Jenifer, his episode for the first season of Masters Of Horror, but... aside from that, I really haven't enjoyed Dario's work in quite some time.
With that said, I was able to get my hands on the script that Jim Agnew & Sean Keller wrote for Giallo shortly after they wrapped shooting last year. I literally read it impatiently in one sitting. I truly believe it to be a terrific script and it gave me hope that Dario could potentially deliver his best film if only he could translate this script to film properly. And with Adian Brody as the lead, »
Diablo Cody wrote the script for this one in which Megan Fox plays a high school girl who is possessed by a demon and inflicts her wrath upon her male classmates. The trailer seems to imply that she's a vampire but most of the descriptions I've found are avoiding the "V" word. Amanda Seyfried plays Jennifer's best friend who must put a stop to the evil. You can check out Jennifer's Body on September 18.
There's a second trailer for this extraterrestrials as refugees flick produced by Peter Jackson. You see a little more of the aliens but they're quick glances. We do get come interesting glimpses of the alien technology and with Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen making so much money I have to figure the public is going to like all the robots on display here. The aliens start slumming on August 14.

It should be difficult for true horror fans to discuss the genre and not mention influential veteran Dario Argento. The Italian master has dabbled in various material during his lengthy career (he co-wrote Leone's Once Upon A Time In The West, for example), but is undoubtedly best known for his "giallo" works like Suspiria, Tenebre, Deep Red and Inferno. He's taking a page from his own book with his latest, bluntly titled Giallo. The movie features Oscar-winner Adrien Brody as an »

He’s been called everything from the Maestro of the Macabre and the Master of Italian Horror to the “Garlic Flavored Hitchcock”, but true horror fans know him as simply Argento. Last weekend at Fangoria’s Weekend of Horrors, Manhattan’s Jacob K. Javitz Convention Center was abuzz over the mere notion of his pending presence, even overshadowing the likes of horror visionaries Tobe Hooper and Guillermo Del Toro.
Dario Argento took the stage at 1:30pm on Sunday June 7th, accompanied by a translator and the woman who literally wrote the book on the Italian filmmaker, author of Broken Mirrors/Broken Minds: The Dark Dreams Of Dario Argento and Film Critic Maitlan McDonagh. McDonagh led the director through a slightly disappointing interview/Q&A that merely managed scratch the surface of the artist’s genius. The lack of depth and substance seemed to be mostly due to McDonagh’s »
