Interview: Bill Moseley Talks The Possession Experiment & Reflects on Silent Night, Deadly Night 3

5 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

From The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2’s Chop-Top to Otis from House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects, Bill Moseley is known for playing iconic villains in the horror genre, but his role as an exorcist in The Possession Experiment—coming out on VOD, Digital HD, and DVD—is firmly rooted on the side of good against evil.

In anticipation of The Possession Experiment’s release from Momentum Pictures, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with Moseley about finding his "inner Max von Sydow" in the film's opening exorcism scene, and with the holiday season upon us, the talented actor also reflected on playing the killer Ricky in Silent Night, Deadly Night 3: Better Watch Out!

Thank you for taking the time to talk with me about The Possession Experiment. What jumped out to you about the role of Father Mark?

Blu-ray Review: Return Of The Living Dead 3 Vestron Video Collector’s Series

2 December 2016 1:36 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Given just how lousy with zombies our current pop culture climate has become over the last decade or so, it’s hard to remember that the walking dead were out of favor as recently as the 1990s. The decade had a few bright spots (Peter Jackson’s Dead Alive, aka Braindead is a stone-cold classic, as is Michele Soavi’s Dellamorte Dellamore, aka Cemetery Man), but on the whole there weren’t a lot of memorable zombie movies coming out of the Clinton decade. Well, along comes the new Vestron Video Collector’s Series Blu-ray of Brian Yuzna’s Return of the Living Dead 3 to remind us that at least one more terrific zombie movie did come out in the ’90s, but many horror fans slept on it. Hopefully that changes now.

Pretty much a sequel in name only, 1993’s Return of the Living Dead 3 bears almost no »

Blu-ray Review: C.H.U.D. II: Bud The Chud Vestron Video Collector’s Series

29 November 2016 2:01 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Not all C.H.U.D. are created equal.

Within weeks of Arrow Video’s special edition Blu-ray of the original C.H.U.D.—still the best movie ever made about New York’s homeless being transformed by toxic waste into cannibalistic humanoid underground dwellers—Lionsgate’s new(ish) Vestron Video Collector’s Series adds its 1989 sequel, C.H.U.D. II: Bud the Chud, to its growing library of collectible Blu-rays. The completist in me is happy to have both available in the best possible format. The supportive horror fan in me is happy for the film’s fans, who finally get to put a high-def version of a movie they adore on their shelves. The movie lover in me would be perfectly okay not seeing it again.

C.H.U.D. II: Bud the Chud is what Fred Dekker’s Night of the Creeps might be if it weren’t any good. »

Deadly Pleasures: Texas Chainsaw 3D

10 November 2016 1:25 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Do your thing, cuz!”

Not since Busta Rhymes challenged Michael Myers to a kung fu fight has one moment in a horror movie so signified that a beloved franchise had completely lost its mind. But unlike Halloween: Resurrection, which represents the desperate, pandering death rattle of the Halloween franchise, those four words spoken near the end of 2013’s Texas Chainsaw find the series embracing a lunacy it had left behind for 20 years and attempting to inject new blood into Tobe Hooper’s dynasty. Literally. [Spoilers for Texas Chainsaw follow.]

Though it made a boatload of money upon its January 2013 release (about two and a half times its $20 million budget), Texas Chainsaw—originally called Texas Chainsaw 3D, as it was the first in the series released in the 3D format—is the kind of widely reviled sequel that most horror fans mention in conversations about the worst modern franchise films, standing alongside Jason Goes to Hell »

Review: Tales Of Poe is a Unique Take on the Master of Macabre’s Written Works

17 October 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In the history of the horror genre, there has been no shortage of movies adapted from the great Edgar Allan Poe. From the classic 1935 Universal adaptation of “The Raven," to the brilliant gothic Roger Corman/Vincent Price collaborations of the 1960s, and even through Stuart Gordon’s 1991 filming of “The Pit and the Pendulum” for Full Moon Features, there’s not a corner of horror that hasn’t been touched by the works of Poe. This makes any new adaptation of the author’s work challenging, though, because so many horror fans may carry a “been there, seen that” mentality towards the umpteenth retelling of “The Tell-Tale Heart.” It is to the credit of directors Bart Mastronardi and Alan Rowe Kelly that their new anthology, aptly titled Tales of Poe, offers a new spin on an author whose work has been brought to the screen for nearly 100 years.

Texas Chainsaw Killer Leatherface Was Inspired by This Cartoon

13 October 2016 5:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Most hardcore horror fans know that the iconic villain Leatherface from director Tobe Hooper's enduring 1974 horror classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was inspired by Wisconsin serial killer Ed Gein. That real-life killer also served as the inspiration for a number of iconic horror movies such as Psycho, Maniac and Silence of the Lambs. Tobe Hooper revealed quite the surprise in a new interview, when he revealed that this iconic character was actually inspired by a cartoon character.

October 1 marked the 42nd anniversary of the original horror classic, and Tobe Hooper made this surprising revelation during an interview with the New York Post. The filmmaker revealed that the beloved cartoon duck Baby Huey was the real inspiration for Leatherface, even though they both don't seem to have much in common. In the Baby Huey cartoons, the massive duck was hunted by a fox who wanted to eat him, but in Texas Chainsaw Massacre, »

Bill Moseley’s ‘Possession Experiment’ Sold to Momentum Pictures (Exclusive)

12 October 2016 7:42 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Momentum Pictures has bought rights to the exorcism movie “The Possession Experiment,” Variety has learned exclusively.

The film stars Chris Minor (“Edge”), Jake Brinn (“Glimpse”), Nicky Jasper (“Nocturne”) with KT Fanelli (“Pretty Bad Girls”) and Bill Moseley, best known for horror credits including “House of 1000 Corpses,” “The Devil’s Rejects” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2.”

Scott B. Hansen directs from a Mary J. Dixon script in which a student (Minor), who has always been drawn to the supernatural, decides to explore the dark world of exorcisms as a topic for his final world theology class project. Teamed with three classmates, the group investigates a multiple homicide that they eventually discover was an exorcism gone horribly wrong.

The student becomes obsessed with the event, and in a strange turn of events, decides the only way to research this topic is to undergo an exorcism himself.

Todd Slater (“The Truth About Lies”) is the producer. »

Hearty Helpings of Horror: Christopher Lombardo Digs into the Food Featured in Scary Films

19 August 2016 3:57 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Epicureanism has come to be associated with mindless indulgence in food and sex, even if those ancient Athenians called for more restraint than you’d typically see in your average horror movie.

Countless horror films, of course, have echoed cultural anxieties surrounding sex, but that other physiological need, food, is also a common ingredient. Poor impulse control is at the heart of every slasher film—usually the perp acting on his, but also the risk-taking behaviors of his victims. And it’s not much of a stretch to consider that there’s a genetic component to this, whether manifested in psychopathy or an inability to keep the fridge door shut.

According to a Bloomberg report, 2015 was the first year Americans spent more on dining out than on groceries, as at-home food prep shows proliferate and the real-life horror that is the obesity epidemic shaves years off our lives. Luckily, amidst »

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. »
