Videodrome: how Cronenberg subverts the noir thriller genre

31 July 2015 3:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Cronenberg's Videodrome isn't just a classic sci-fi horror, but also a brilliant noir thriller. Ryan explains why...

Everything in Max Renn’s life is beginning to pulsate. First the Betamax videotape sent to him by one Bianca O’Blivion, which seems to breathe in his hand as he removes it from its beige packaging. Then Max’s television, squatting in the corner of his apartment, appears take on a life of its own: veins twitching, the screen bulging to the sound of a woman’s voice: “Come to me, Max. Come to me...”

David Cronenberg’s Videodrome, released in 1982, is loaded with violent and startling imagery like this. Like Apocalypse Now, its very narrative seems to disintegrate as its morally suspect protagonist Max Renn (James Woods) embarks on a journey into his own heart of darkness: a fascination with the origins of a video signal soon leads him to a world of corruption, »

Directors' Trademarks: David Cronenberg

28 July 2015 6:16 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

About once a month, Cinelinx will chose one director for an in-depth examination of the “signatures” that they leave behind in their work. This week, we’re examining the trademark style and calling signs of David Cronenberg as director.

Cronenberg first became interested in film during college, where he self-taught himself the art before establishing a co-op to produce films. His first feature length films were art-house movies, Stereo (1969) and Crimes of the Future (1970). Shivers (1975) was his breakthrough. That film received a lot of attention because although people were talking about it, they were divided in regards to its vulgarity, especially considering the fact that it was funded by the Canadian government. Still, it was the most profitable film funded by the Canadian government up to that point. His follow up was Rancid (1977) which was commercially successful. His next movie took a break from body horror to explore his love of cars and racing. »

Why 1980 Was the Best Year in Movie History

27 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others?  History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies?  So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »

The Sentinel (1977) Blu-ray Announced by Scream Factory

3 April 2015 2:03 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

You can't choose your neighbors in an apartment complex, and sometimes you get stuck next to a noisy, mean-spirited soul who makes you want to look in the classified ads before you even finish unpacking. Alison Parker has some rowdy neighbors around her new Brooklyn apartment, but what disturbs her the most is that nobody else lives on her floor. And that's only one of many creepy elements to be found in 1977's The Sentinel, and fans of the cult classic fright film should be excited to hear that Scream Factory has announced they will release The Sentinel on Blu-ray this summer.

From Scream Factory: "We are beyond thrilled today to report that we will be bringing the 1977 cult classic chiller The Sentinel to Blu-ray for the first time in the U.S. and Canada!

Planned release is for August. This often underrated, overlooked and shocking film from Director Michael Winner »

Stream the Soundtrack to Ryan Gosling’s Lost River Now!

30 March 2015 6:46 PM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

If you haven’t watched the trailer to Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut called Lost River, correct that now. While early buzz has been mixed, I’m excited to see the film. I think it is also cool that Johnny Jewel scored the film, considering he was going to be the original composer for Refn’s Drive (See Symmetry: Themes for an Imaginary Film where some of Jewel’s ideas and possibly leftout compositions lay). Lost River looks dreamy, hypnotic and a nightmare of Americana.

From the Press Release

Performer/producer/visual artist and composer Johnny Jewel scores Warner Bros.’ thriller Lost River, opening in theaters April 10, 2015.

Directed and written by Ryan Gosling, Lost River is a dark fairy tale about love, family and the fight for survival in the face of danger starring Christina Hendricks, Eva Mendes, and Ben Mendelsohn. The multi-talented Jewel provides a grainy analog synth score »

Leonard Nimoy 1931-2015: 6 non-Star Trek career highlights

27 February 2015 1:22 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Leonard Nimoy became an icon of science fiction in the 1960s for his timeless role in Star Trek as the Enterprise's chief science officer Mr Spock – a character he would play on and off for more than 45 years.

While Nimoy will always be best remembered for his work on the Star Trek television shows and movies, he also had an incredibly varied career as an accomplished writer, director, musician and photographer.

In celebration of Nimoy's life and legacy, we look back at six career highlights aside from his work in the Star Trek franchise.

1. Mission: Impossible (1969–71)

Nimoy became a household name in the pioneering science fiction series Star Trek, but even early on he sought to make his career choices as diverse as possible.

Following on the heels of Star Trek's shocking cancellation, Nimoy was cast in Mission: Impossible, another highly influential 1960s television series.

Watch: Explore David Cronenberg's Dangerous Method With 7-Minute Look At His Films

12 February 2015 8:09 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

David Cronenberg. From “Stereo” to “The Fly” to “Crash” (no, not that one, the one from 1996), to “A Dangerous Method” and beyond, it’s hard to argue that the (sometimes) writer, (more often) director has had an eclectic career. And with his first credited short nearly fifty years ago, perhaps that isn't surprising. Vimeo user Shaun Higgins (d.b.a. Hello Wizard) has paid homage to the uniquely varied director via a new seven-minute tribute supercut. The short splices shots from 21 of Cronenberg’s films together, lending some semblance to what defines a Cronenberg picture. In chronological order, going all the way back to 1969 and up through the present, Higgins includes: “Stereo,” “Crimes of the Future,” “Shivers” (a.k.a. “They Came From Within”), “Rabid,” “Fast Company,” “The Brood,” “Scanners,” “Videodrome,” “The Dead Zone,” “The Fly,” “Dead Ringers,” “Naked Lunch,” “M Butterfly,” “Crash,” “eXistenZ,” “Spider,” “A History of Violence,” “Eastern Promises, »

'Better Call Saul' Has Already Broken Cable Ratings Records

9 February 2015 8:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Better Call Saul," the new "Breaking Bad" spinoff series, had some serious shoes to fill following the end of that acclaimed drama. It turns out that AMC had nothing to worry about, as "Saul" debuted to almost universal critical acclaim, and now monster ratings, too.

"Saul" has already nabbed 6.9 million total viewers for its Sunday series premiere, and a whopping 4.4 million viewers in the coveted 18-49 demographic. That latter figure is a record-breaker for cable, marking the highest-rated cable series debut ever in that demo; it bested previous champ "The Dead Zone," which premiered to 4 million 18-49-year-old viewers in 2002.

And those numbers aren't even taking into consideration "Saul"'s eventual time-shifted viewership (DVR and on demand views) totals, which should be available later this week.

The two-night series premiere of "Better Call Saul" continues Monday night at 10 p.m. on AMC.

17 moments of movie terror in the bathroom

5 February 2015 7:47 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From toilet-based scares to nasty encounters in the shower, here's a selection of 17 memorable moments of terror in the bathroom...

Nb: the following contains potential spoilers and scenes which may be considered Nsfw.

The scariest moments in horror are often the most intimate - this is why knives are a far nastier, button-pushing instrument of death than the gun. As the Joker famously put it in The Dark Knight, “You can savour all those little emotions...”

Intimacy may be the key to understanding why, in horror films, so many dreadful things tend to happen in bathrooms. The bathroom is often where we go to be by ourselves - either to answer the call of nature, brush our teeth, or simply relax in the bath after a hectic day at work. Equally, the water closet also sees us at our most vulnerable: naked, or at least with our trousers down, and »
