Comic-Con 2016 Interview: Anthony Ferrante and Caroline Williams on Sharknado: The 4th Awakens

29 July 2016 2:24 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

On July 31st, Syfy will unleash Sharknado: The 4th Awakens, picking up five years after we last saw Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) battling the titular forces of nature, and with the story heading to Las Vegas this time around, rest assured that all bets are off.

Daily Dead recently caught up with Sharknado 4 director Anthony Ferrante and scream queen Caroline Williams, who has a role in the latest sequel, to hear more about what fans can expect from The 4th Awakens and how Ferrante was able to pay homage to several of his favorite horror movies in this latest installment, including The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2, of course.

Anthony, you’ve been with Sharknado since the beginning and here you are, back for a fourth film. Can you start off by talking about what’s new for The 4th Awakens?

Read Our Free “Class of 1986” Issue of Deadly Magazine, Featuring Jason Lives, The Fly, From Beyond, Vamp

8 July 2016 4:12 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The horror genre had quite the year in 1986. Jason Voorhees climbed out of his coffin, scientist Seth Brundle tinkered with teleportation, two Tobe Hooper films were released in theaters, and Stephen King's directorial debut burned rubber on the big screen. In our new, free issue of Deadly Magazine, we revisit some of the genre's most memorable movies from that magical mid-’80s year with the people that helped make them. Welcome to the 30-year reunion for the Class of 1986.

Within the pages of this Deadly Magazine issue, you'll find retrospectives and interviews that shine spotlights on some of the most celebrated, and in some cases, underrated, films from 1986.

Scott Weinberg's interview with Barbara Crampton offers an intriguing look at the making of Stuart Gordon's other H.P. Lovecraft adaptation, From Beyond. Scott Drebit enrolls at Slaughter High to give his grade on the school-set slasher. Joseph Maddrey sits »

Tmnt season 3: 5 great episodes (with cake)

4 July 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Matt Edwards Jul 28, 2016

Here are 5 great episodes of Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles season 3, with cake. What more explanation do you need?

I’ve already written two articles about watching the Nickelodeon TV series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and eating cake. You can find them here and here.

The idea is to eat a ridiculous amount of cake and talk about what makes my favourite TV show so brilliant. What links Ninja Turtles and cake? Nothing. Why does everything always have to make sense? Even looking for pictures that I can use in these articles highlights that no one ever eats cake on the show. What I do is buy Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cake and just get on with it, and you can either go with me or call me out on doing something so weird. But then what are we gonna do with all this cake?

DVD Review – The Wicked Lady (1983)

4 July 2016 3:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Wicked Lady, 1983.

Directed by Michael Winner.

Starring Faye Dunaway, Denholm Elliott, Alan Bates, John Gielgud, Glynis Barber, Oliver Tobias, Joan Hickson and Prunella Scales.

Synopsis:

A woman marries into high society after stealing her sister’s fiancé but becomes bored with country life so she turns to highway robbery to get her kicks.

If you caught the Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films documentary from a couple of years back you may remember a sizeable section devoted to 1983’s The Wicked Lady. It may seem odd that a production company like Cannon – mostly known for action, martial arts and horror B-movies such as American Ninja, Invasion U.S.A. and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 – would delve into a period drama remake of a 1945 film but this was no ordinary period piece as The Wicked Lady was adapted and directed by Michael Winner, fresh from his success with »

Do sequels ever really work when decades have passed since the first film?

27 June 2016 3:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I still haven’t seen Independence Day: Resurgence, and there’s a good chance I won’t. When 20th Century Fox made the decision not to screen the film for Us press in advance of the film’s opening, they sent a very clear message to anyone paying attention, and it’s a message that I believe more and more studios would love to send to critics, especially on their giant event films: not only do we not need you, but we don’t want you. At all. And it’s true. Studios don’t really need to screen movies for critics. It’s a professional agreement that we all participate in, but more and more often, studios screen later and almost begrudgingly. I am amazed how many times this year alone I’ve had to basically beg to even find out when or if a screening is happening. The »

Blu-ray Review: Venom (1982)

24 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

If you’re looking for a great killer snake movie, you may find 1982’s Venom to be a disappointment. If you’re looking for a showcase of competitive overacting, Venom is your huckleberry.

Imagine the 1955 Humphrey Bogart/Fredric March movie The Desperate Hours if it were invaded by a killer black mamba. That’s Venom, only instead of Bogart and March, it’s Klaus Kinski and Oliver Reed, two incredibly talented but famously difficult actors, attempting to devour both the scenery and one another. Though it went into production with Tobe Hooper as director, he left the film fairly early on (with vague reports of “it just wasn’t working” as an explanation) and was replaced by Piers Haggard, the British filmmaker responsible for Blood on Satan’s Claw. He found himself in a difficult and unhappy situation, guiding a movie that wasn’t his and run roughshod over by his actors. »

Blu-ray Review: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2

21 April 2016 3:54 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Recognizing that it’s more than likely an unpopular opinion, I need to come clean and confess that I prefer Tobe Hooper’s 1986 sequel, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2, to its predecessor, which I’m also quick to point out is an unparalleled masterpiece of the genre. This has everything to do with personal taste. Tobe Hooper is one of my favorite filmmakers of all-time, and while I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve seen his 1974 classic, I probably revisit Part 2 every year. It’s one of my very favorite horror movies.

The third film in a trilogy Hooper made for Cannon Films in the 1980s (the other two being the brilliantly bonkers Lifeforce and Hooper’s remake of Invaders From Mars, released just a couple of months before TCM2 in ’86), The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2 was the movie the director had to »

April 19th Blu-ray & DVD Releases Include The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and The Stuff

18 April 2016 5:43 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This third week of April has some exciting home entertainment offerings for us genre fans, including the special edition releases of two cult classics I adore, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and The Stuff. An indie film I’ve been hearing about for a while now, Grimewave, also makes its way to DVD this Tuesday and while it may not be traditional horror, Oscar-winner The Revenant certainly has enough badassery contained within its cinematic frames to be worthy of mentioning this week, and it arrives on both Blu-ray and DVD on April 19th.

Other notable releases this week include Smothered (which features a ton of horror icons and was directed by John Schneider of Smallville and Dukes of Hazzard fame), 15 Till Midnight, Classroom 6, Ip Man 3, German Angst and She Wolf Rising.

Let’s be honest here: Scream Factory is a continuous machine, releasing genre favorites and various other films every year, with a strong emphasis on putting out films that horror fans have been dying to see given the deluxe treatment. From the early days of putting out awesome special editions of films like Halloween III and Lifeforce, to their ongoing partnership with IFC Midnight for releases such as The Babadook or Dark Summer, it’s a surefire fact that they’ve instilled an all across the board approach to the horror home video plateau. We dedicated a pretty hefty amount of time this past week to giving recent and upcoming Sf releases an in depth look, so naturally, here’s part one of our two-part our Massive Scream Factory rundown review!

Demonic Creatures and Chainsaws Revved Up For Scream Factory’s April Lineup!!

10 March 2016 3:05 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

We previously reported that the gang at Scream Factory are about to make the month of April an awesome one, with the 4/12 double feature of Anthony Perkins-led films Destroyer and Edge Of Sanity (link). Personally, that alone is reason enough to celebrate, but any respectable horror fan knows that the Sf crew likes to go big. Corin Hardy (the upcoming reboot of The Crow)’s The Hallow is arriving April 5th, with the tale of a man up against a demonic entity, loosened from the wilderness around it.  We had a short chat with Hardy last year, and it’s definitely enough to get genre fans excited for this Scream Factory/IFC Midnight team-up release.
