Review: Bizarre Cult Curio 'Roar' Starring Tippi Hedren & Melanie Griffith

28 May 2015 2:01 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There’s just too many movies. In the U.S. alone, every year seems to bring with it a new record broken for theatrical releases. If we’re in the midst of a golden age of anything, it would appear to be endless choices. In this age of cinematic oversaturation where even The New York Times has finally taken a stand to not review every film given a theatrical release in the U.S., is there even room for dormant quasi-cult films to reach any kind of audience? Drafthouse Films seems to think so. The independent distributor has released Oscar nominated films like “Bullhead” and “The Act of Killing,” but not enough attention is given to the other kind of new release they specialize in: unearthing strange, seemingly lost older movies and giving them a new lease on life through limited theatrical runs and eventual VOD and Blu-ray releases.

'Roar' (1981) Movie Review

20 April 2015 1:23 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Often times people watch a movie and wonder to themselves, "Who thought this was a good ideac" Usually, this thought is given to films that are incompetently put together or just dumb plot ideas. Rarely does that thought come up because of the safety of the entire cast and crew. This brings me to Roar, a movie where husband/wife duo of Noel Marshall and Tippi Hedren set out to make a film showcasing the plight and beauty of African big cats, and things... went a little awry. The cast and crew had to endure over seventy bloody attacks from the animals, which resulted in injuries ranging from director of photography Jan de Bont being scalped (resulting in 120 stitches) and Melanie Griffith needing facial reconstructive surgery. The film itself wants to have a light touch, but the entire time you are on edge knowing all of these people are really getting hurt. »

The more he discovers about her, though, the more he realizes just how different Louise is from anyone he's known before. Lovecraftian love abounds in Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead's Spring, coming out on Blu-ray and DVD as a Best Buy exclusive on June 2nd before hitting other stores on August 11th, and we have the film's home media release details and cover art:

Press Release -- "A young American in a personal tailspin heads to Europe to escape his past and falls for a beautiful woman with a dark and deadly secret in the unique and unforgettable Spring. From Drafthouse Films, FilmBuff and Anchor Bay, the genre-bending horror romance that's been described as a brilliant cross between Before Sunrise and An American Werewolf in London »

Roar: Drafthouse Films Is Bringing Big Cats Back To The Big Screen

19 February 2015 6:00 PM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Aside from having good taste when it comes to acquiring some of the best titles from modern cinema Drafthouse Films also has a knack for finding gems long forgotten in cinema's past. And not just the already established cult faves like Ms. 45 and Wake in Fright. Drafthouse Films find new titles for us to engage with and obsess over as well. Were it not for the work of Drafthouse Films I would not have believed that ninjas were controlling the drug trade in Miami back in 1987. Miami Connection taught me otherwise. And I also would have not have attempted to drunkenly dance to the theme music from The Visitor at the closing party of a local film festival last October if it were not...
