Animation pics are bookending the Morelia International Film Festival for the first time in its 15-year history. Pixar Animation Studios’ latest opus, “Coco,” no less, receives its world premiere in Morelia on opening night, October 20, while Carlos Carrera’s “Ana & Bruno” marks its Latin American premiere when it wraps the fest on October 28.
Set in Mexico and against the country’s most important annual event, the Day of the Dead, “Coco” is an apt choice as Morelia and the nearby lakeside village of Patzcuaro are particularly renowned for their Day of the Dead festivities. Since the festival usually ends close to the eve of the holiday, some guests have stayed on to witness the pageantry.
Snagging the world premiere of Pixar’s latest animated feature began some two years ago when festival director Daniela Michel met Pixar Chief Creative officer John Lasseter at the Lumière Festival in Lyon where Lasseter told her that Pixar’s next project »

Horror-Rama Toronto, the Only stand-alone horror convention and cult cinema celebration, returns for its 4th year in a larger and wilder space with a gaggle of amazing celebrity guests and cinema icons –including actress Ashley C. Williams in her Canadian convention debut!

In 2015 she received acclaim for her blistering turn in director Matthew A. Brown’s psychological horror film Julia and both she and Brown (who will also be attending Horror-Rama 2017) will screen their masterpiece and meet their fans.
Ashley joins previously announced special guests: John Harrison (Creepshow, Day of the Dead, Tales from the Darkside, Dune); Frank Henenlotter (Basket Case, Brain Damage); Mink Stole (Pink Flamingos, Female Trouble, Serial Mom); Vernon Wells »

It may be later than it should have been, but horror legend George Romero is finally getting his sorely deserved star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Sadly, George Romero passed away at the age of 77 in July, so he wasn't around to see it happen, but the important thing is that justice is being done. The man who invented the zombie genre as we know it with Night of the Living Dead is finally getting his due.
The announcement was made by the officially Hollywood Walk of Fame website, with the ceremony scheduled to take place on October 25. Shortly after his death, fans nominated George A. Romero to finally get his star, with some even starting a fundraiser to get it done. These things do cost money and fans thought that if they could raise the funds, it may help get the star in place. Fortunately, the organization is doing it on their own. »

Close-Up is a feature that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead (1968) is playing October 1 - 31, 2017 in the United States as part of the series Prelude to Halloween.For all of its social and cinematic influence, its current notoriety as the granddaddy of the contemporary zombie movie (and television show and comic book and videogame), George A. Romero’s 1968 debut, Night of the Living Dead, was a remarkably unassuming production. Shot in mid- through late-1967 on a budget of around $114,000, with a cast and crew of unknown actors and amateur locals, the film went on to accumulate an international gross of more than $30 million, setting the standard for a progressively popular horror sub-genre in the process. One now marvels at its systematic structure, its discerning formal design, its clever manipulation of time and space, and its shrewd exploitation of generic conventions. »

Just like Dr. Logan, Waxwork Records has been keeping busy with new vinyl horror score releases this year, and now they're resurrecting two favorites as re-issues with a slightly new look: George A. Romero's Day of the Dead and Sam Raimi's Darkman:
Press Release: Waxwork Records is beyond thrilled to present George A. Romero’s Day Of The Dead Original Motion Picture Score on deluxe double vinyl. Originally released by Waxwork in 2013 and 2014, and selling out almost immediately, the score to George A. Romero’s Day Of The Dead by composer John Harrison (Creepshow, Tales From The Dark Side) is 100% synth driven, dark, and blends elements of tropical compositions and atonal, droning electronic cues.
In 2013, Waxwork and composer John Harrison unearthed the original, lost 1985 master tapes containing the complete Day Of The Dead film score from the attic of a recording studio in Pittsburgh, Pa. After painstakingly restoring, »

In the early 1980s, before Day of the Dead, Romero’s career almost went in a completely different direction… It’s no secret that George A. Romero *almost* made more movies than he actually did end up making, but did you know that he was at one point attached to direct a Marvel Comics superhero movie? In […] »

Looking back on this still-young century makes clear that 2007 was a major time for cinematic happenings — and, on the basis of this retrospective, one we’re not quite through with ten years on. One’s mind might quickly flash to a few big titles that will be represented, but it is the plurality of both festival and theatrical premieres that truly surprises: late works from old masters, debuts from filmmakers who’ve since become some of our most-respected artists, and mid-career turning points that didn’t necessarily announce themselves as such at the time. Join us as an assembled team, many of whom were coming of age that year, takes on their favorites.
What happens when, even ten years on, a masterpiece still has not received its due? Well, you keep pushing for it, even in the face of a macrostructure of art evaluation that will have to collapse entirely »

A new trailer for Disney-Pixar's Day of the Dead-inspired film, Coco, is out! See for yourself how beautiful this animated film looks below!
A lot of comparisons have been made between The Book of Life and Disney-Pixar's latest venture, Coco. Despite the obvious similarities with the theme and music, the latest trailer for Coco shows that their film will stand up as its own unique take on The Day of the Dead, when it comes out in November.
Disney and Pixar really brought the charm with this trailer. Everything from the dog (Dante), to the skeletal walk, to the accountant skeleton had me grinning from ear-to-ear. The animation duo has always had a knack for creating solid dialogue for all ages to enjoy, and it looks like they're on the top of their game with Coco.
Although, the dialogue is memorable, the thing I'll take away the most from »
