The 13 Worst Halloween Movies of All Time

31 October 2014 9:51 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Halloween is finally upon us, and a lot of you have been holding down your own horror movie marathons. We're sure you've included the classics, but not many of them actually take place on All Hallow's Eve. And the ones that do? Well, quite a few are not very good. John Carpenter's 1978 Halloween is of course a classic. 2009's Trick 'r Treat is a new perennial favorite that grows its cult base every year. And you simply can't go wrong with The Nightmare Before Christmas between now and New Year's Eve. But you may want to seek out new and interesting films that revolve around this terrifying treat-filled holiday. The following list of movies is not for you! This is a warning: Do not invite your friends over for the following 13 fright flicks, as they are the worst Halloween movies of all-time. That said, they are not without their merits. »

Director Charles Martin Smith Talks Dolphin Tale 2, His Career as a Character Actor and the Transition to Filmmaking

12 September 2014 5:53 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The career trajectory of Charles Martin Smith has been a fascinating one to watch. The perennial character actor (supporting roles in American Graffiti, Starman & The Untouchables) slowly transitioned behind the camera, helming such genre fare as Trick or Treat and Fifty/Fifty.  Since then, Smith has transitioned to directing more topical dramas: The Snow Walker & Stone of Destiny – before finding commercial success with the family-friendly Dolphin Tale.  The surprise success of Dolphin Tale, the film grossed more than 70 million domestically, has not only spawned a sequel opening this weekend but also helped to establish an aquarium (The Clearwater Marine Aquarium) that houses Winter and Hope, the titular aquatic stars of both Dolphin Tale films. In the following interview with Charles Martin Smith, the writer/director discusses the darker adult themes of Dolphin Tale 2, the writing process behind the sequel and his approach to working with child-actors.  In addition, Smith »

Book Review: Heavy Metal Movies

29 July 2014 11:55 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Former head writer for the nudie site Mr. Skin, Mike “McBeardo” McPadden has stepped away from indexing every nude scene from every film ever made and dove head first into the high-speed, attitude driven world of Heavy Metal Cinema.  From The Book’S Website: “Heavy metal and high-thrill cinema have been joined together like mutant twins since before Black Sabbath took the name of a chilling Italian horror film in 1970. The unadulterated journey of Heavy Metal Movies spans concert movies and trippy midnight flicks, inspirational depictions of ancient times and future apocalypses, and raw hand-held digital video obsessions. As brash, irreverent, and visceral as both the music and the movies themselves, Heavy Metal Movies is the ultimate guidebook to the complete molten musical cinema experience.”

This book wasn’t written, it was forged…that’s how metal it is.  With over 666 movie recommendations ranging from the obvious choices like Trick Or Treat, »

Rock and Roll Nightmare (1987) Review

30 January 2014 12:39 AM, PST | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Written by Kevin Scott, MoreHorror.com

Rock and Roll Nightmare aka Edge of Hell (1987)

Directed by: John Fasano

Written by: Jon Mikl Thor

Cast: Jon Mikl Thor (John Triton), Jillian Peri (Lou Anne), Frank Dietz (Roger), David Lane (Max), Teresa Simpson (Randy)

Gateway films can take a horror aficionado down roads to a destination that resurrects memories of humble beginnings as a young horror fan. I found “Trick or Treat” on YouTube in its entirety a few weeks back, and nostalgia overpowered me to the point that I had to go down the rabbit hole of horror and hair metal to see how far it goes. “Trick of Treat” seems to be the one that everyone remembers, mainly because of Gene Simmons and Ozzy Osbourne making brief cameos, and Skippy from “Family Ties” sporting long hair, and dropping the “F” word from time to time. Stuff like that is downright unforgettable. »
