Watch: 12-Minute Video Essay Explores The Soundtrack Of 'The Man Who Fell To Earth'

22 September 2015 3:02 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Rock legend David Bowie is no stranger to movies. In fact, he’s acted in quite a few: they range from campy cult favorites like “The Labyrinth” to Tony Scott’s underrated vampire flick “The Hunger.” He’s also made appearances in Martin Scorsese’s “The Last Temptation of Christ” (as Pontius Pilate), Christopher Nolan’s “The Prestige” (as inventor Nikola Tesla), in addition to popping up randomly in everything from “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me” to a cheeky cameo in “Zoolander,” where he plays himself. With his gaunt, skeletal physique and otherworldly aura, it’s not a surprise that filmmakers remain attracted to him as a visual subject (one day, someone will cast Tilda Swinton in a biopic of the singer… mark my words). And yet it is Bowie’s unknowable, alluring alien nature that remains his chief quality as an entertainer and a pop culture icon. This »

I’ve written on more than one occasion how many subsets there are of zombie films. In most cases, you know what you are going to get. Straight up purist zombie films, contagion zombie films, zom coms, and even zom rom coms (That’s zombie romantic comedy. I don’t know if it’s fully made it into the horror lexicon yet, so I felt that I needed to elaborate) The vampire film has its own unique evolution, and exactly what any vampire film is about is much more difficult to decipher. It could be anything from gothic period pieces, showdowns between a Van Helsing protagonist and a Dracula antagonist, »

Bluray Review: The Hunger (1983)

14 September 2015 1:07 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Combining the sensual approach to vampirism with the angle of treating it like a drug addiction, Tony Scott’s 1983 film The Hunger is now availble on Bluray, giving fans both new and old a chance to see one of the best vampire films of all time in HD. While somewhat bare when it comes to supplemental material, it’s still very much a film you should look for, if you haven’t seen it before.

Revolving around Miriam and John Blaylock (Catherine Denevue and David Bowie), a vampire couple, who spends their nights picking up potential victims at goth bars by night (Bauhaus is featured performing in the film’s opening) and living a wealthy lifestyle by day. John has been Miriam’s partner for hundreds and hundreds of years, and soon finds himself, like many of Miriam’s former companions, suddenly not sleeping and aging quite rapidly.Trying to stop the aging, »

The Hunger |Blu-ray Review

25 August 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Roundly dismissed upon its release by critics in 1983, Tony Scott’s classy, stylish art-house vampire film The Hunger arrives on Blu-ray as a demure addition to the Warner Bros. Archive Collection. A notable cult item still lacking of a deserving reappraisal for its significant merits, the film has long languished in obscurity with the exception of its references to the explicit lesbian sex scene shared between Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon (featured in a first-wave resurgence of interest in Lgbt cinematic themes with the documentary version of Vito Russo’s The Celluloid Closet, 1991). It represents one of three cinematic adaptations from horror writer Whitley Streiber, following the also forgotten Wolfen (1981), starring Albert Finney.

Miriam Blaylock (Deneuve) is an ancient yet breathtakingly beautiful vampire. Her lover of the past three centuries, John (David Bowie) has suddenly begun to age and decay, apparently something that has eventually happened to all of her past lovers, »

August 18th Blu-ray & DVD Releases Include Nightmare Castle, Nomads, and Burn, Witch, Burn

17 August 2015 4:24 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

August 18th is bringing horror and sci-fi fans a bounty of home entertainment choices this week, especially if you’re into cult classics and indie genre films. Titles arriving on Tuesday include newer movies like Cub, Ejecta and Closer to God as well as the latest from the Soska Sisters, Vendetta. Several older films are getting an HD overhaul on Blu-ray too, including Nomads, The Hunger, Nightmare Castle, The Wife Killer and the supernaturally-infused Burn, Witch, Burn which was also co-penned by Richard Matheson.

And while it may not necessarily be a full-on genre movie, it’s worth noting that Shout! Factory is also releasing the criminally underrated cyber-adventure/thriller Hackers onto Blu-ray this week to celebrate its upcoming 20th anniversary.

Susan Sarandon on Gay Marriage, Transgender Rights and Her First Lesbian Sex Scene

30 June 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Susan Sarandon, a longtime gay ally, plays a lesbian grappling with her grandchild’s transgender identity in the upcoming Weinstein Co. drama “Three Generations.”

When did you first become an Lgbt ally?

If you’re involved in the arts in any way, shape or form, your whole life is completely integrated with gay artists, and creative people who are gay. I started speaking in public in the early days of the AIDS epidemic when there were huge demonstrations that didn’t even find their way into the New York Times. Having lost a lot of very close friends, who were given the message to die in shame somewhere out of sight, that activated me very quickly.

Did you know it would be controversial to play a lesbian in 1983’s “The Hunger”?

I never went in anticipating the reaction it caused. I thought it was an interesting project. Who wouldn’t »
