Blu-ray Review – Body Double (1984)

24 October 2016 1:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Body Double, 1984.

Directed by Brian De Palma.

Starring Craig Wasson, Melanie Griffith, Barbara Crampton, Gregg Henry, Dennis Franz, Deborah Shelton, Guy Boyd.


An out-of-work actor becomes obsessed with a beautiful woman after spying on her through a telescope, leading to a series of nasty events.

After beginning the 1980s with the triple-whammy of Dressed to Kill, Blow Out and Scarface, filmmaker Brian De Palma’s next effort would be a slightly lesser offering in the shape of 1984’s Body Double, a more Hitchcockian movie than his previous couple of films but one that also saw the director toning down some of his usual trademarks in favour of a few different techniques.

Jake Scully (Craig WassonA Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors) is a happy-go-lucky jobbing actor who suffers from claustrophobia, making his latest role as a vampire buried in a grave a bit of a chore. Scully »

It Will Tear Your Soul Apart

Stephen King was once quoted as saying: “I have seen the future of horror… his name is Clive Barker.” That future became reality when, in 1987, Barker unleashed his directorial debut Hellraiser – launching a hit franchise and creating an instant horror icon in the formidable figure of Pinhead.

Barker’s original Hellraiser, based on his novella The Hellbound Heart, follows Kirsty Cotton (Ashley Laurence) as she comes head-to-head with the Cenobites – demonic beings from another realm who are intent on reclaiming »

Halloween 2016: 31 Movies to Stream on Netflix this October to Get You into the Spirit of the Season

30 September 2016 6:37 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

One of my favorite things to do every October is to binge-watch as many horror and sci-fi movies as possible (something I can guarantee I’m not alone in doing), and for those of you with Netflix, the streaming service can be an invaluable resource this time of year, although I do remember a time when there were a lot more options than we get these days.

That being said, I culled Netflix's entire library and put together 31 great movie choices that will undoubtedly get you into a macabre mood to celebrate Halloween this year. Take a look at our Netflix list below, featuring one film for each day of October, and get ready to enjoy an entire month’s worth of fright-filled fun, courtesy of Netflix’s streaming database.

Creep (2014)

Looking for work, Aaron (Patrick Brice) comes across a cryptic online ad: “$1,000 for the day. Filming service. Discretion is appreciated. »

Re-Animator getting a modern day remake with Re-Animator: Evolution

21 September 2016 6:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The 1985 horror-comedy Re-Animator is set for a modern-day remake, with director Serge Levin announcing to Bloody Disgusting that development is underway on a new film, titled Re-Animator: Evolution, which Levin has penned by actor Jonathon Schaech.

“Our adaptation is a modern rendition of Herbert West – ‘Reanimator’ by H.P. Lovecraft,” Levin told Bloody Disgusting. “Moreover, we’re making sure that the spirit and the story elements are more loyal to the original written material of H.P. Lovecraft. It’s much darker, more thought provoking, and definitely more grounded in science than the first adaptation. It will be a true horror film with some neat sic-fi layers.”

“Staying more true to the short story, we will have Major Eric Moreland Clapham-Lee, as one of the characters from the original written material,” Levin continued. “Many other story and character elements that I don’t want to reveal yet…resonate with the H.P. Lovecraft’s original vision. »

‘Re-Animator: Evolution’ In Development, Will Be ‘A Remake of Sorts’ of the Original

20 September 2016 1:39 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Re-Animator” is a 1985 comedy sci-fi film based on the H.P. Lovecraft story “Herbert West, Re-Animator” and directed by Stuart Gordon. For those unfamiliar with the plot, the movie centered around a medical student (Jeffrey Combs) who brings his headless professor back from the dead with a special serum. Rumors of a sequel have been circulating the web and now, thanks to Bloody Disgusting, a new “Re-Animator” film has been confirmed.

According to the site, the feature is titled “Re-Animator: Evolution” and is currently in development with Serge Levin directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with actor Johnathon Schaech.

“Our adaptation is a modern rendition of Herbert West – ‘Reanimator’ by H.P. Lovecraft,” Levin told Bloody Disgusting. “Moreover, we’re making sure that the spirit and the story elements are more loyal to the original written material of H.P. Lovecraft.

Re-Animator: Evolution Will Be a Modern Day Remake

19 September 2016 10:19 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Nothing is sacred. We learned that long ago, and you can expect most new horror movies to be a reboot or remake of some kind. Even the seemingly original looking The Woods turned out to be a Blair Witch sequel/reboot hybrid. So it should come as no shock to the system that the impending sequel Re-Animator: Evolution is actually a modern day remake. One that will stick closer to the original written works of H.P. Lovecraft.

Saying it sticks closer to the original source material has become a popular slogan amongst genre directors attempting to resurrect any long buried franchise. Though, it is kind of a slap in the face to fans who have been waiting years for a true sequel. And does it really matter to those fans that this will be held closer to the works of H.P. Lovecraft? Probably not, as Re-Animator is considered an 80s horror classic for a reason. »

Exclusive Interview: Scream Queen Barbara Crampton

8 September 2016 10:27 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Barbara Crampton Interview

Barbara Crampton is a horror icon. Starring in such movies as The Re-Animator and Chopping Mall, she became one of the most familiar faces of fright flicks throughout the eighties and nineties. She then stepped away from the genre around the late nineties as she became a series regular on American daytime soap The Young and the Restless. However, she couldn’t stay away for long and for the last few years has been getting back involved in the horror genre, popping up in such films as You’re Next, We are Still Here and Road Games.

Road Games screened for a second year in a row this year at Frightfest. The film debuted last year and this time around saw the director, Abner Pastoll, return to take part in a live director’s commentary. It also forms part of the third wave of Frightfest Presents titles. »

Poster and trailer for ‘Expendables of Horror’ ensemble Death House

4 September 2016 2:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A poster and trailer have arrived online for Harrison Smith’s ‘Expendables of Horror’ ensemble Death House, which features a host of genre favourites; check them out here…

The Death House is the Area 51 of Evil… a subterranean government facility that holds humanity’s worst on nine levels. Hell, Dante’s ninth level, holds the Five Evils… the “dark stars” of Death House. These individuals are so heinous they can never walk among society again. They may also be supernatural.

Agents Toria Boon and Jae Novak have their own dark pasts, arriving at Death House to tour its levels and observe its denizens first-hand as well as the medical and mental experiments of Drs. Eileen Fletcher and Karen Redmane. Their depraved experiments date back to the Nazi doctors of WWII.

Prison cells are virtual reality holo decks that recreate prisoner environments before they were incarcerated. A special hallucinogenic gas keeps inmates under control. »

Barbara Crampton reveals ‘Death House’ details [Exclusive]

1 September 2016 5:08 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Barbara Crampton is a horror icon; she made a name for herself in the genre playing Megan Halsey in The Re-Animator. Since then she’s appeared in many more films and has been a regular name on the credits of films at the last three year’s of Horror Channel Frightfest events.

We caught up with the scream queen just before this year’s Frightfest where she stars in both Beyond the Gates and Road Games. She was in high spirits about the festival and was upset that she wasn’t able to make it. She did however update us on her next project – Death HouseDeath House is basically a horror version of The Expendables, with all the big names of horror uniting. The project had a lot of input from the late Gunnar Hansen, but despite having the royalty of horror attached, is still in search of a »

Newswire: Horror-nerd class is now in session as Miskatonic Institute opens in NYC

31 August 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

The Miskatonic Institute for Horror Studies—a.k.a. the horror fan’s Hogwart’s—first opened in Montreal in 2010, the brainchild of film writer and programmer Kier-La Janisse (House Of Psychotic Women). In 2015, it expanded with a branch in London, helpfully strengthening the metaphor we were admittedly reaching for in the previous sentence. Now the nonprofit institute, which offers “university-level horror history and theory classes for people of all ages,” is expanding into the U.S. with a pilot program in New York City this fall, hosted at the Morbid Anatomy Museum.

The institute’s namesake, Miskatonic University—or the college from Re-Animator, for the stubbornly lowbrow among us—recurs throughout H.P. Lovecraft’s work. So perhaps it’s appropriate that one of the four classes in Miskatonic’s initial NYC run deals with the particular challenges of adapting Lovecraft for the screen, as taught by ...

Frightfest 2016: ‘Beyond the Gates’ Cast and Crew Video Interviews

28 August 2016 6:33 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The 2016 Horror Channel Frightfest is in full swing. Since Thursday night the Vue cinema in Shepherd’s Bush has been overrun with the dark heart of cinema as fans flock to watch all the festival has to offer. In addition to plenty of screenings, the festival also has a strong filmmaker presence with just about everyone turning up to introduce their films.

Beyond the Gates is one of our absolute favourites of this year’s Frightfest; the film sees two estranged brothers unite to go through their late father’s belongings. Whilst packing things up they find an old VHS interactive board game called ‘Beyond the Gates’ and decide to have a play. However, this is no ordinary game and by starting to play they have put their own lives on the line. It’s a fantastic throwback to the 80’s/90’s yesteryear of horror and also includes actress Barbara Crampton, »

FrightFest Presents Review – Road Games (2015)

25 August 2016 7:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Road Games, 2015.

Directed by Abner Pastoll.

Starring Andrew Simpson, Joséphine de La Baume, Frédéric Pierrot, Barbara Crampton and Edward Hogg.


Amidst reports of a serial killer riding the roads, a couple of hitchhikers in rural France accept a lift from a strange man.

A quick look at the title and the synopsis of Road Games is a good indicator of what you’re going to get from director Abner Pastoll’s debut feature film, because it immediately fills your mind with images of hitchhikers walking into a total bloodbath on some dingy backroad but once you’re on that journey with the two main characters you’ll find that things aren’t quite what they would at first appear to be and misdirection is the name of the (road) game.

Like all good thrillers should, Road Games gives you a sense of place and situation as it opens on »

Denise Richards: examining her recent straight-to-dvd movies

17 July 2016 3:10 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Jul 19, 2016

From Blonde And Blonder and You Stupid Man, through to Edmond: we go through the recent straight-to-dvd films of Denise Richards...

So far in this series of pieces that look at the straight-to-dvd or VOD movies of some of our favourite actors who have fallen on hard times, we’ve only looked at men (to date: Bruce Willis, Nicolas Cage, John Cusack and John Travolta). That’s because, mostly, actresses find themselves almost completely out of the game once they hit 30ish – an unnecessary full stop that a lot of us would like to see removed in the future.

Denise Richards, sadly, is no different. After marrying a man she found herself in an abusive relationship with, her career climb stumbled and she was forced back down into TV roles, where she’s currently still putting in the hours.

Richards had a sparkling, American Dream-like start in life. »

A celebration of disembodied brains and heads in the movies

13 July 2016 8:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 14, 2016

We take a look at some of the most memorable and freaky floating brains and flying heads in the history of cinema...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for The Brain From The Planet Arous and Prometheus.

For some reason we've yet to discover, cinema has, for decades, been home to all manner of sentient, disembodied heads and floating brains. Note that we’re not talking about decapitations here - though goodness knows that cinema is home to plenty of those, from Japanese samurai epics to modern slasher horrors.

No, we’re talking about movies where heads and brains remain sentient even when they’re stuffed into jars or colossal things made of stone. Sometimes used for comedic effect, at other times for shock value, they’re a surprisingly common phenomenon in the movies. Here, we celebrate a few of our absolute favourites - though you’re sure »
