Is this the golden age of TV horror?

6 July 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With Hemlock Grove, Penny Dreadful, Hannibal, The Walking Dead & more, Ron suggests this is a golden age in the history of Us TV horror…

Feature

On April 30th 1954, a Finnish-American actress, showgirl and pin-up named Maila Nurmi sashayed down a dark corridor fogged with dry ice, stopped on cue and unleashed a bloodcurdling scream. She was sporting her best faux-Morticia Addams dress, vampy fingernails, long black hair and an imperious expression. After the introductory trance and shriek that began every episode of Kabc TV’s The Vampira Show, the host would recline on a skull-decorated Victorian couch and mockingly introduce one of any number of low-budget and no-budget horror films for her late-night television audience. Vampira was the first horror host in American television, appearing on the air only five short years after the station first signed on in Los Angeles.

Tyburn Films: British Horror’s last line of Defence

4 July 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

1976 saw the publication of John Brosnan’s excellent book The Horror People. Written during the summer of 1975, it makes interesting reading 40 years down the line. Those who feature prominently in the book – Peter Cushing, Vincent Price, Jack Arnold, Michael Carreras, Sam Arkoff, Roy Ward Baker, Freddie Francis, Robert Bloch, Richard Matheson and Milton Subotsky – were still alive, as were Ralph Bates, Mario Bava, Jimmy Carreras, John Carradine, Dan Curtis, John Gilling, Robert Fuest, Michael Gough, Val Guest, Ray Milland, Robert Quarry and Michael Ripper, all of whom were given a mention. Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney Junior, Michael Reeves and James H Nicholson were not long dead. Hammer, Amicus and American International Pictures were still in existence. George A Romero had yet to achieve his prominence and Stephen King wasn’t even heard of!

Brosnan devoted a chapter to a new British company called Tyburn Films. Founded by the charismatic and ambitious Kevin Francis, »

‘Lake Erie Monster’ #1: A Modern Iteration of Classic Horror

24 June 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Lake Erie Monster #1

Written and Illustrated by: J. Kelly and John G.

Published by: Shiner Comics Group

Remember Creepy and Eerie comics? Did you grow up with Tales from the Crypt? Did you love watching Creepshow? The Lake Erie Monster is a wonderful throwback to the classic horror comics of the 70’s. The art, the tales, even the narration scream of a love for classic horror comics, and that, in part, is why the series is such an entertaining read. In Northeastern Ohio there is a legend of a monster that hides in the murky waters of Lake Erie. This mysterious creature has lent its name to a hockey team, a beer, and now, a series of spine chilling horror comics.

The first issue of the series is broken into two parts, a format familiar to comics of this genre. The first portion, set in the 1960’s/70’s, begins with a young, »

Venus in Fur | Review

21 June 2014 7:20 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Mighty Aphrodite: Polanski Returns With Spirited Adaptation

The once quite reticent Roman Polanski quickly returns with yet another adaptation of a popular Broadway play, Venus In Fur, which follows his 2011 star studded Carnage. Say what you will, but Polanski, who often tends to favor claustrophobic chamber pieces, excels with chatty subversiveness, and detractors of the sometimes forced Carnage should revel in this latest effort, a dark labyrinth of comedic mind games that does with words what something like Lady from Shanghai does with mirrors.

A dreary, desolate evening sees a desperate theater director, Thomas (Mathieu Amalric) pacing the stage as he bitches angrily on the phone about the miserable auditions he witnessed all day long for the lead in his new play, Venus In Furs, an adaptation of an infamous novel credited with birthing the term masochism. Clearly, the play is a labor of love for the man, and »

Final Push to Fill The Morturary Collection with Terror

18 June 2014 12:06 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

There are plenty of Kickstarter success stories out there, and we hope that The Mortuary Collection ends up joining their ranks as it sounds completely badass! As of this writing the guys have 56 hours left to raise just $4,000! Read on to see if you wanna pitch in!

Described as a stylized live-action horror anthology film that fuses the surreal storytelling of "The Twilight Zone" with the goopy aesthetics of "Tales from the Crypt," The Mortuary Collection will be comprised of four twisted tales of madness and the macabre in a sleepy New England town, spun by an eccentric mortician.

On the run from the police, a misguided young girl takes refuge in a decrepit old mortuary. There she meets Montgomery Dark, an eccentric undertaker with more than a few skeletons in his closet. Montgomery chronicles the strange history of the town through a series of twisted tales, each more terrifying than the last. »

Exclusive: John Schneider Talks Smothered and More - Part 2

13 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

John Schneider has done it all. He's found success in television, music and film. Most recently he decided to try his hand at something he's always loved: horror movies. With his new film Smothered being released soon, Schneider sat down with us to talk a bit more about the project.

As John Schneider isn't a name we normally associate with the horror genre, the writer and director of Smothered explained what led him to make the movie. "I've always been a horror fan," Schneider said.

"My mother used to subscribe to some magazine I remember seeing when I was a kid that had Frankenstein on the cover," he said of his early influences. "And when I was growing up in New York, there was a thing called 'Chiller Theater' and I'd watch that every week. I can still see the hand and the 'Chiiiillller' thing. So I've always been a fan. »

HBO’s Tales from the Crypt – 25 Years Later: Isn’t It Time This Show is Resurrected?

10 June 2014 4:40 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

On this day - June 10th - in 1989, HBO debuted Tales from the Crypt with the Walter Hill-directed episode "The Man Who Was Death." William Sadler starred as an executioner who, you could say, relished his job. He took things a bit too far, however, turning vigilante until he was caught by the law and sentenced to death himself, ultimately winding up in the electric chair he knew all too well. Beyond the cynical, archetypal "Crypt" twist we had become accustomed to by the time the series called it quits in 1996, the episode was significant in the fact that Sadler's character - Niles Talbot - broke the fourth wall. Sadler had this dead gaze - as he stared directy into the camera - that was hypnotic and menacing. It was only contradicted by a wry smile that would come when he was taking a swig of beer or talking about killing someone. »

Details on The Mortuary Collection

5 June 2014 8:19 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Do you crave horror in the anthology form? Do you miss the days when practical effects ruled the horror screen? If so, you’re not alone. Filmmaker Ryan Spindell shares those longings and is writing a love letter to horror’s 1980′s heydays with his Kickstarter project, The Mortuary Collection.

A gothic horror anthology film in the works, The Mortuary Collection centers on an undertaker who tells four tales of terror to a young girl who takes shelter in his mortuary. With 16 days left on its Kickstarter timeline, the film is over the halfway mark to reaching its $50,000 goal, but it could still use some help. If you like Creepshow, Tales from the Darkside: The Movie, The Twilight Zone or Tales from the Crypt, then this could very well be a project you’d like to support.

Scream Factory to Release Tales from the Crypt & Vault of Horror on Blu-ray

30 May 2014 5:10 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Before the TV show of the same name came out in 1989, there was the Tales from the Crypt movie. Released in 1972, this British anthology horror film explored multiple matters of the macabre, from a Christmas Eve killer to a Chinese figurine that grants three wishes, and also featured the legendary Peter Cushing in one of its tales.

A sequel to Tales from the Crypt, titled Vault of Horror, came out in 1973 and Scream Factory has announced plans to release both of these horror anthologies as a double feature Blu-ray later this year.

Appearing on Blu-ray for the first time, the Tales from the Crypt/Vault of Horror double feature is set to be released sometime this fall. Scream Factory also announced that they will release 1985′s The Doctor and the Devils, a gothic thriller centered on grave robbers, on Blu-ray for the first time this fall, as well:

Now, the Master of Horror takes us into his Bestiary for an anthology series free of continuity, but full of shocking consequences.

80s-Inspired Anthology The Mortuary Collection Takes to Kickstarter

28 May 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Los Angeles-based filmmaker Ryan Spindell is a huge fan of 80s horror, particularly the practical effects and lifelike monsters that slashed up screens both big and small during that oh, so glorious decade.

He's also got a serious soft spot in his heart for the horror anthology, and that's why he's making one of his very one, entitled The Mortuary Collection. But he needs your help.

After trying to convince various studios to back his idea for an 80s-inspired horror anthology, Spindell has taken matters into his own bloody hands, recently launching a Kickstarter campaign in an effort to raise the necessary funds to bring his throwback love letter to life.

Described as a stylized live-action horror anthology film that fuses the surreal storytelling of "The Twilight Zone" with the goopy aesthetics of "Tales from the Crypt," The Mortuary Collection will be comprised of four twisted tales of madness and »

Exclusive Interview: Robert Englund Talks Freddy’s Nightmares, Fear Clinic Movie, Upcoming Projects

21 May 2014 5:25 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

He’s most widely known as Freddy Krueger, the sadistic bladed glove-wearing killer of those Elm Street teenagers unlucky enough to find him lurking in their dreams. In real life, though, actor/director Robert Englund is one of the nicest guys around. His fans saw that for themselves at Wizard World’s recent Minneapolis Comic Con, as Robert signed autographs, posed for pictures, and talked genuinely with each person he came in contact with.

In-between steady streams of fan interactions, I had an exclusive interview with Robert at Wizard World, where he talked about playing Dr. Andover once again in the upcoming Fear Clinic feature film, working in front of and behind the camera on the Freddy’s Nightmares TV series, upcoming projects, his ultimate dream role, and more.

How did it feel to step back into the shoes of Dr. Andover and reunite with director Robert Hall for the »

Review: Locker 13

27 April 2014 3:22 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

  Film anthologies are such hit or miss entities these days (actually, when haven’t they been?), some working very well and some, well..not so much. Like an entertaining homage to Rod Serling’s various anthology TV shows, Locker 13 (directed by Bruce Dellis, Jason Marsden, Matthew Mebane, Adam Monteirth and Donovan Monteirth) gives fans of the anthology sub-genre an entertaining time, one that doesn’t take overstay its welcome, giving a decently paced and well executed ride.

More akin to The Twilight Zone than Tales From The Crypt, Locker 13 revolves around Skip, a young janitor at a wild west-like theme park. Curious about the theme park and the stories that inhabit it, Skip sits down as his supervisor, Archie, guides Skip through various stories about the different choices that people are given in life and how each person’s decision can affect their lives, for the good, or in some cases, »
