Fight for Horror Supremacy Week 2

11 October 2011 4:23 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

For the horror buff, Fall is the best time of the year. The air is crisp, the leaves are falling and a feeling of death hangs on the air. Here at Sound on Sight we have some of the biggest horror fans you can find. We are continually showcasing the best of genre cinema, so we’ve decided to put our horror knowledge and passion to the test in a horror watching contest. Each week in October, Ricky D, James Merolla and Justine Smith will post a list of the horror films they have watched. By the end of the month, the person who has seen the most films wins. Prize Tbd.

Ricky D (15 Viewings) Total of 29 Viewings


Thirst (1979)

Directed by Rod Hardy

The film is best described as one long dream sequence with nods to David Cronenberg, Rosemary’s Baby and perhaps even Solyent Green. Thirst features some superb in-camera visual effects, »

Not Available on DVD: The Klansman

23 August 2011 7:45 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

This article originally ran here at We Are Movie Geeks in October 2009. I’m re-posting it to help promote Super-8 Lee Marvin Movie Madness September 6th at The Way Out Club here in St. Louis.

Only in the 1970.s could Hollywood have turned its attention to the subject of racism in the deep south and come up with something so jaw-dropping in it.s political incorrectness as The Klansman. On the surface the 1974 film is a serious depiction of the bigotry and the racial confrontations that tear apart an Alabama town in the 1960.s, but watching it today The Klansman comes off at times serious, laughable, meanspirited, sleazy, and racist. I.m sure the movie wasn’t meant to be racist, but it is filled with characters mouthing so many racist beliefs and committing so many racist crimes that the movie seems to gloat gleefully in its outrageous depiction of bigotry and delivers one ham-fisted, »

Watch: Samuel Fuller Auditions For ‘The Godfather: Part II’

3 June 2011 3:53 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

This is just the strangest thing. As you all know, Hyman Roth is one of the most iconic characters in the entire Godfather trilogy. A Jewish gangster who serves as one of the most influential people in The Godfather: Part II, he’s not just – as stated above – one of the most iconic characters in the series, but one of the most important. His actions have a very wide ripple effect on Michael Corleone for the rest of his life, and an argument could be made for him as one of the greatest villains in film history.

A big part of that is his portrayal by Lee Strasberg, one that earned him a Best Supporting Actor nomination at the Oscars that year (which ended up being won by co-star Robert De Niro). That great performance is done in a very specific, calculated manner by the actor, and it’s difficult »

Watch Sam Fuller Audition For Godfather 2

3 June 2011 1:52 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

This is what I love about the internet. Besides being a medium where you can share information instantaneously, every so often, amongst all the bizarre viral videos and 'memes', lies some real solid gold. Trailers From Hell dug up an old screen test video of legendary director Sam Fuller reading with Al Pacino, for the part of Hyman Roth (which eventually went to legendary acting coach, Lee Strasberg). The director (whom you might know from White Dog, Shock Corridor or The Big Red One) gives a great subtle, underplayed performance here. Check out the video below. All Fuller and Godfather fans should get a great kick out of this.

New at Tfh: Joe Dante on Verboten

1 June 2011 11:17 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Joe Dante speaks well of Samuel Fuller and declares it Verboten! to do otherwise.

Once again Samuel Fuller uses the skimpiest of budgets as a tool to contrast reality with artifice. A long cherished project for the director, this German-set postwar drama was the last Rko picture, and has been out of circulation for years until its recent Warner Archive dvd release.


Check out the trailer commentary and then keep reading for some bonus annotations.

Let’s talk about Samuel Fuller for a moment, shall we? Or, more importantly, let’s let Samuel Fuller talk about Sam Fuller (in the context of his film Pickup on South Street):

How can you not love a cigar-chomping guy like that? And then to look a the movies he made is something unto itself. His films have verve and impact and, despite their b-picture nature, are never just blank programmers; they’re fully always alive. »

'White Dog' (1982): Movie Review

19 March 2011 11:16 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

by Colleen Wanglund, MoreHorror.com

Sam Fuller’s White Dog (1982) is an odd movie, and one that I wouldn’t necessarily classify as horror—it’s more of a melodrama. Based loosely on the 1970 novel of the same name by Romain Gary, White Dog was initially banned from theatrical release by the studio due to negative press and rumors that it was racist. With a screenplay by Curtis Hanson (The Dunwich Horror {1970}, L.A. Confidential {1997}) the movie tells the story of Julie (Kristy McNichol) a young, struggling actress who hits a dog (a white German Shepherd) on the highway one night. Julie takes the dog home with her while she tries to find its owners. The dog protects her from a rapist who breaks into Julie’s house and she develops quite an attachment to the dog. The dog—which is never given a name—gets out one day initially chasing a rabbit. »

Wacky Criterion Collection Newsletter Drawing Hints At Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing

17 March 2011 10:18 PM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

It has certainly been a busy week for Criterion, and I have a dozen or so drafts of news stories to finish up over the weekend. With Tuesday’s June 2011 new release announcement, new Three Reasons videos, additions to the Hulu Channel, and a handful of other smaller pieces, Criterion has kept me busy. Earlier today we got our March e-mail newsletter, complete with a brand new “wacky” illustration from Criterion’s own Jason Polan. This is what we got:

Now, when I first saw the film, my brain immediately jumped to White Dog, and the possibility of a Blu-ray release. I’m pretty sure that was on James’ list of Blu-ray upgrades that he wanted to see when we recorded our bonus episode earlier this year. As soon as I put that idea out online, everyone was quick to point out that the dog was obviously from Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing, »

What I Watched, What You Watched: Installment #78

30 January 2011 8:03 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I watched six movies this week, but of the bunch I'm only going to tell you about one here. One of them was Criterion's Blu-ray of Broadcast News, which I've already started working on my review, I also watched Cedar Rapids and The Eagle, but they don't come out for a few weeks so I'll be reviewing those at that point. I also saw The Mechanic and The Rite, but you already have my opinion of those two. So that leaves me with just one...

I can, however, tell you what is currently in my "To Watch" pile from Netflix, that includes Sam Fuller's The Big Red One, Peter Weir's Witness and John Huston's Prizzi's Honor. So if you wanted to add those to your lists we can discuss them next week, for now, here's what else I watched...

Shock Corridor and The Naked Kiss Blu Ray Review

28 January 2011 10:10 AM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

By the time Samuel Fuller had made his first film, he'd been a copy boy, fought in the second world war, written a number of pulp novels and screenplays and worked as a crime reporter. His directorial debut, I Shot Jesse James [1] (1949), was already informed by a lifetime's worth of real world experience. His films are personal -- even autobiographical -- and his storytelling is aggressive. His themes are often presented in an austere nature and his imagery can be heavy handed (White Dog [2]), but his earnestness leaves me smiling rather than cringing. It makes sense that Criterion would re-release two Samuel Fuller classics, The Naked Kiss and Shock Corridor, on the same day with matching cover artwork (provided by Ghost World author/illustrator Daniel Clowes). The films share a deep rooted pulp narrative that examines two of cinema's most prototypical social outcasts: hookers and schitzos. The Naked Kiss Directed »

What I Watched, What You Watched: Installment #77

23 January 2011 9:34 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Well, I'm down to only needing to see Wings (the first Best Picture Oscar winner) and Cavalcade (the 1934 Best Picture Oscar winner) and I will have seen them all. Next up, watching all of the Best Picture nominees... a task that is certain to take me even longer.

For any of you that may be interested in watching all of the Best Picture Oscar winners next month on Turner Classic Movies you will be able to knock a Ton of them out in only one month as they have their 31 Days of Oscar marathon. I know it's where I will be seeing several I haven't seen including the two I mentioned above, both of which aren't available on DVD. Wings shows on February 6 and Cavalcade shows on February 9. Just thought I'd let you know.
