It Came From The Tube: Salem’S Lot (1979)

14 August 2016 11:09 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Stephen King adaptations are very hard to pull off successfully. For every Misery, there’s a Graveyard Shift; Carrie soars while Cujo stalls. The small screen has had it just as bad—the elephantine The Stand benefits from its four-night rollout, while no amount of time could save The Tommyknockers. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg—at last count, there were 91 King adaptations (I’ll need to double-check those figures) across all media. For this blurry-eyed cathode ray kid, however, nothing has yet to match the two-part graveyard dance known as Salem’s Lot (1979).

Originally airing on CBS on Saturday November 17th and 24th, Salem’s Lot was a huge success for the network; there was even talk of turning it into a weekly series. Alas, that never came to be. However, we were gifted with 183 minutes of measured, chilling suspense and terror helmed by none other »

‘Stand by Me’ Oral History: Rob Reiner and Cast on River Phoenix and How Coming-of-Age Classic Almost Didn’t Happen

28 July 2016 12:05 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s been three decades since “Stand By Me” became the little drama that could, catapulting River Phoenix to stardom, establishing Rob Reiner as a director on the rise, and racking up big ticket sales on a paltry budget.

The story of four friends from small town in Oregon, hiking into the countryside in search of the body of a boy who has been hit and killed by a train, is an unlikely coming-of-age tale. Yet in Reiner’s sensitive hands, it becomes a meditation on mortality — one that transcends its 1950s setting to have a universal appeal.

Stand By Me” is unique in other ways. For one thing, it rivals “The 400 Blows” in its ability to evoke complex characterizations from young actors. Not only Phoenix as spiritual leader Chris Chambers, but co-stars Wil Wheaton as sensitive Gordie Lachance, Jerry O’Connell as wisecracking Vern Tessio, and Corey Feldman as hot-tempered Teddy Duchamp, »

5 cars made famous by TV and film

18 July 2016 11:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

 

The cars we see in TV and film can put them on the map for those who don’t follow updates in the world of four wheels. So which cars have been made famous by TV and film, that you can perhaps pick up yourself from LeaseCar UK and take for a spin? Let’s take a look…

Hyundai Tucson

Made famous by: The Walking Dead

There was a lot of debate over the vehicle Rick Grimes and co decided to use to get around during the zombie apocalypse – many people believe the show is set in 2003-4 which is when the comic was originally printed, but the car used is a 2011 model. However, creator of The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman, stated that he doesn’t want to limit the show to a timeframe but the car model used definitely got people talking.

However, as this article points out, the »

Revisiting the ending of The Mist

6 July 2016 11:06 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dan Cooper Jul 12, 2016

We look back - with spoilers - at the incredible ending to the film of Stephen King's The Mist...

Unsurprisingly, this article contains spoilers for 2007’s The Mist. This is a deliberately big spoiler warning, for a film you really don't want spoiled. Really.

Stephen King is a man of many collaborations. We suspect you don't need us to tell you that, as they span many mediums and have borne more sweet-tasting, fleshy morsels than the Man from Del Monte would know what to do with.

Without even mentioning his many silver screen collaborative efforts, there’s American Vampire, the excellent comic book series he has co-written with the wildly-talented Scott Snyder; Ghost Brothers Of Darkland County, a musical created in cahoots with T Bone Burnett (creator of that theme tune for True Detective amongst many, many other things). If we’re talking straight up words on »

Every 'Halloween' fan needs to watch this video

23 May 2016 5:17 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

John Carpenter's simple, legendarily creepy Halloween theme is one of the most immediately-recognizable movie themes of all time, and the horror master himself played it live for the first time during a concert (his first ever!) at Los Angeles's Bootleg Theater over the weekend -- not to mention his themes for 1976's Assault on Precinct 13, 1980's The Fog, 1979's Escape from New York, 1983's Christine, 1986's Big Trouble in Little China and 1989's They Live (the latter four of which were co-composed with Alan Howarth). I can only imagine that seeing this live and in person was a religious experience for Carpenter fanatics. "I direct horror movies," said the writer/director/producer before jumping into Halloween. "I love horror movies. Horror movies will live forever." Carpenter also performed tracks from his albums Lost Themes and Lost Themes II.  You can watch Carpenter perform all of the above-mentioned themes »

Watch John Carpenter Perform Halloween Theme and More at L.A. Concert

22 May 2016 4:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

John Carpenter is widely known as one of the most celebrated genre filmmakers of all time, directing classics such as Halloween, Escape From New York, The Fog and so many more. What some might not realize is the filmmaker is also an accomplished musician, who actually composed the scores and theme songs for most of his movies. The filmmaker hasn't directed a feature since 2010's The Ward, but over the weekend, the filmmaker took to the stage for a live retrospective of his music, performing several of his iconic theme songs from his hit horror movies.

The concert took place this past Friday at the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles, where the director performed the theme songs live for hits such as Halloween, They Live, The Fog, Assault on Precinct 13 and Christine. In case you couldn't make it to this event, videos of these performances recently surfaced on YouTube, »

The Dark Tower Movie: What We Know So Far

13 May 2016 1:55 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There was a stretch, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, when Stephen King.s novels were inspiring numerous horror and suspense-thriller films. King.s name, alone, got people into theaters for see adaptations of Carrie, The Shining, Cujo, Christine and Firestarter, to name just a few. The machine slowed down over the years, still producing gems -- Misery in 1990, or The Shawshank Redemption in 1994 . but not churning out nearly the number of King-based films as those earliest days.   That doesn.t mean the author every stopped telling stories. Quite the opposite, in fact. So now that Hollywood is circling back around to the cinematic-worthy works of Stephen King, they are remembering just how many incredible tales the writer has in his chest, and new movies are hopping on our radars. Hulu, for example, rolled the dice on King.s JFK assassination thriller, 11.22.63. The author.s mesmerizing It is back »

NYC Weekend Watch: Terence Davies, Straub-Huillet, ‘Dead Ringers’ & More

6 May 2016 7:20 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Museum of the Moving Image

Before his masterful Sunset Song begins its U.S. run, Terence Davies will be given a complete retrospective at MoMI. His self-titled trilogy screens on Saturday and Sunday; the latter day also brings Distant Voices, Still Lives and, with a post-screening Q & A to boot, The Long Day Closes.

The Omen Prequel Is Happening at 20th Century Fox

28 April 2016 12:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The problem with most prequels is that the original never intended to show you what happened before the events deemed worthy enough to depict in a movie. But that isn't stopping the brain trust at 20th Century Fox from moving forward on The First Omen, a precursor to the 1976 classic that introduced Damien to the world. Antonio Campos, who made waves with his Sundance hit Christine (not a Stephen King remake) is in talks to direct.

A grown-up Damien is at the center of a new A&E horror series that debuted earlier this year, and 20th Century Fox already blew it with their critically panned remake of The Omen in 2006. So they're taking this long-standing horror franchise in a totally new direction. This next movie is produced by David Goyer and Kevin Turen under their Phantom Four banner. There are no story details. The movie will tell what happened »

Why did '11.22.63' change so many parts of the book?

4 April 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When Hulu's 11.22.63 debuted back in February, my review — which praised James Franco's performance as a teacher who travels back in time to stop the JFK assassination, but was disappointed in some of the changes made in adapting Stephen King's novel — included a couple of quotes from writer/producer Bridget Carpenter about why she chose to gloss over my favorite part of the book, where Franco's character gets to enjoy being a high school teacher in early '60s Texas. I promised I'd run the full Carpenter interview when we got closer to the end of the miniseries, ultimately deciding to hold it until today's release of the series finale. Though the interview was conducted in January, when I'd seen every episode but the finale, we go through a whole bunch of spoilers for both the show and the book, so it made sense to save it for now. »

John Carpenter directed Starman while he was in the middle of one of the greatest runs in the history of Hollywood. Over the course of one decade, the director of Halloween spread his wings and made bonafide masterpieces like Escape From New York, The Thing, They Live, and Big Trouble in Little China. He made effective chillers like Christine, […]

We chat to Skulduggery Pleasant author about the movie adaptation, new trilogy Demon Road, horror influences, Feminism and Doctor Who

Derek Landy is excited. Next week, he's going to see two of his favourite 80s films on the big screen for the first time. His publisher Harper Collins is hosting screenings of Joe Dante's Gremlins and Wes Craven's A Nightmare On Elm Street at London's Picturehouse Central (win tickets to both, here) for Landy's legion fans as part of the publicity circuit for book two of his Demon Road trilogy, Desolation.

Landy made his name in Young Adult fantasy with the nine-book Skulduggery Pleasant series about a skeleton detective and his teenage girl accomplice. The huge success of the first Skulduggery novel was a tornado that lifted him Dorothy-like straight out of his family's farm in Ireland and plonked him down in Hollywood where he »

Blu-ray Review: The Curse / The Curse II: The Bite

The Movies

The Curse

The life of a farmer can be difficult, especially if that farmer is watering his crops with contaminated “toilet water” that came from the inside of a meteorite that crashed on his property. Farmer Nathan thought life was going was going great with his new cheating wife, empty headed kid, step-kids being smarter than him, and his strict Christian views. Unfortunately, a meteor just had to strike down on his property with no real scientific inspection from anyone for at least ¾ of the movie.

Farmer Nathan then starts noticing his vegetables filled with maggots, diseased cattle, terrible tasting tap water, and his new wife with an infection on her face. Farmer Nathan does what any farmer trying to make a living would do in such a terrible situation. Nothing.

‘11.22.63’ Showrunner Promises Hulu Series Stays True to Book, Teases Stephen King Easter Eggs

15 February 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“The book is a wonderful piece of art, but it’s also something that’s a doorstop,” Bridget Carpenter, showrunner of “11.22.63” says of Stephen King’s 900-page novel on which Hulu’s television event series is based — so, the show will move at a faster pace.

“You have to make that dramatic, you have to make it drive like a train. We wanted a speeding train of a story,” Carpenter adds, explaining that the pacing is different from the book. But other than that, “11.22.63,” which launches on Presidents Day, will stay “very true” to King’s masterpiece.

“I think that people who know the book will feel rewarded, but I also think that there are enough surprises and deviations to make it fresh,” she says.

As for speeding up the story, which is compressed into an eight-episode series, Carpenter, who serves as writer and exec producer, explains, “In the book, »

Heather’s Favorite Doomed Romances from the 1980s

12 February 2016 3:14 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

I love a heartwarming, feel-good romance story just as much as the next person, but sometimes, it’s those doomed cinematic relationships that tend to stick with you the most. One of the more interesting ill-fated couples I recently encountered was Rob (Cian Barry) and Holly (Abigail Hardingham) from Nina Forever. The new couple must endure the looming presence of Rob’s ex-girlfriend, Nina (Fiona O’Shaughnessy), who died recently in a car accident and happens to show up anytime they become intimate.

The pitch-black comedy touches on a lot of the complications that come with modern relationships and all the proverbial baggage we endure as a result of our previous romantic entanglements. It really struck me throughout the story just how well directors Ben and Chris Blaine perfectly explore those themes in Nina Forever, making me realize that some of my very favorite movie love affairs, particularly from the 1980s, »
