Scream Factory Bringing The Doctor And The Devils Home To Bluray; Features New interview With Mel Brooks

12 September 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Freddie Francis was legendary for directing genre greats such as Tales From The Crypt, Dr. Terror’S House Of HorrorsThe Evil Of Frankenstein and many more films that horror fans hold close to their hearts, and now Scream Factory is set to bring another Francis gem, the Mel Brooks-produced The Doctor And The Devils to Bluray on November 14th. I’ve always loved liked the film, it’s full of great performances by former Bond actor Timothy Dalton, Jonathan Pryce and Stephen Rea.

While it’s not a part of the “Collector’s Editions” releases, it still has a couple of goodies for fans of the film, including a commentary and a bran new set of interviews with people involved.  Scream Factory’s recent Bluray release of The Legend Of Hell House looked great, so it’s probably safe to say that the team will treat the transfer »

Complex narratives: 6 series that revolutionized television in the digital age

3 September 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The digital age has changed television dramatically within the past two decades.  With the advent of cable channels, home video media, dish on demand and the internet, the average TV viewer has a variety of venues to access television programs. With all these ways to access television shows, the viewing audience has become more aware of repetitive story lines, inconsistency in character development and continuity errors.  In short, these advances in technology have made for a more sophisticated casual television viewer, therefore allowing for the progression of serialized storytelling.

Today’s television writers have a landscape to develop complex narratives beyond the limitations of the episodic format, and now that audiences have better accessibility to these shows, there is a higher demand for serialized storytelling where there wasn’t one before.

Although there have been many television shows that have contributed to the overall progression of the modern serialized television series, »

'Tales of Poe' review

25 August 2014 5:41 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

By Jonathan Weichsel, MoreHorror.com

Tales of Poe, an anthology film directed by Bart Mastronardi and Alan Rowe Kelly, consists of three very strong, but very different short films adapted from the works of Edgar Alan Poe. Some viewers will prefer the straightforward yet creepy The Telltale Heart, others will laugh out loud the campy Tales from the Crypt inspired The Cask of Amontillado, while others will get sucked into the lush visuals of the abstract, surreal Dreams. The three stories in the anthology are all so strong, yet so distinct, that three people could watch the film and each one have a different favorite.

"The Telltale Heart", the most straightforward adaptation in the anthology, is also conversely the one that takes the most interesting liberties with its source material. Switching the genders of the main characters, and having the narrator, brilliantly played by the great Debbie Rochon, tell her »

TV Review: Monsters – S1E1: “The Feverman”

25 August 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Horror is a genre that transcends all mediums, but package it in the form of an anthology-television series and you’ve found the key to my heart. If you’re familiar with my posts on Icons, you’ll know I’m a sucker for this stuff, especially Freddy’S Nightmares! Despite the fact that they really aren’t too many bonafide classics (apart from the obvious usual suspects), it’s a format I enjoy if anything for the eclectic variety and ability to quickly invest in a segment without worrying about continuity. One of my morning rituals is to turn on The Twilight Zone, Amazing Stories, or something of that ilk while I eat breakfast for those reasons. If I love it, I’ll continually revisit it (“Walking Distance” in particular), and if I’m not too keen on it, it’s ok because the next episode will be entirely independent of itself. »

Film4 FrightFest 2014 Review – Bad Milo! (2013)

23 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Bad Milo!, 2013

Directed by Jacob Vaughan

Starring Ken Marino, Gillian Jacobs, Mark Kay Place, Claudia Choi, Toby Huss, Peter Stormare, Kumail Nanjiani and Stephen Root

Synopsis:

A horror comedy centered on a guy who learns that his unusual stomach problems are being caused by a demon living in his intestines.

When describing Bad Milo! to someone, a fair few comparisons spring to mind. It’s like a 21st Century version of Basket Case, it’s the Tales from the Crypt episode they never made, it’s a big budget version of a skit you’d likely find on Youtube etc. But frankly there is no real way to describe just how odd and bizarre a movie like Bad Milo! is. After all, it’s about a man who has a demon living inside his anus.

Ken Marino plays Duncan, a man who is stressed with his whole life. His family »

Review: Isolation by David Moody

20 August 2014 6:36 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

They say that all good things must come to an end, and this eBook only release of Isolation brings David Moody’s zombie writing to an end, collecting his remaining fiction together and drawing a line underneath his undead work. Never say never, of course, because horror has a way of coming back from, ahem, the dead, but for now those of us who have been on Moody’s journey through the zombie apocalypse can step into his cadaver filled world one final time.

There are five stories in this collection, the main one being the titular Isolation, a novella based on a screenplay that Moody had been working on developing into a movie with Colchester based director Will Wright but which had, as these projects often do unfortunately, stalled. Telling the tale of Keith, a socially awkward young man who initially finds himself alone among the suddenly deceased rest of the world, »

10 Most Chilling TV Moments Ever

19 August 2014 2:22 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fox

It’s rare these days to get a scene on television that genuinely makes the hairs on your neck stand up on end, which really brutally knocks you for six.

We’re used to gore, of course. The rise of cable TV as the go-to medium for bloodthirsty, gripping stories, along with the fall in cost of decent CG effects has seen the amount of nasty body horror on television multiplied by a factor of what-the-hell in recent years.

But genuine, clammy-handed fright fests are few and far between. The old school weird sci fi and horror anthologies like The Twilight Zone, Masters Of Horror, The Outer Limits and Tales From The Crypt were always more concerned with the macabre than the chilling. Those that have stood the test of time without crumbling into cheese were either gruesome, shocking or freaky, relying on a short, sharp shock in the »

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

18 August 2014 12:02 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We have some sad news for horror fans hoping to have the Tales from the Crypt & Vault of Horror Blu-ray release in time for Halloween. Scream Factory has announced that the double feature is delayed due to a setback with locating the uncut footage from Vault of Horror:

“Sorry guys but we need to delay our upcoming blu-ray release of Tales From The Crypt / The Vault Of Horror. The double feature is now scheduled for 12/2/14 instead of its originally planned 10/14/14 date.

As you know, we announced this release with the goal of presenting Vault uncut. That is still the plan but we have run into some challenges in our process. Fox (whom we licensed the film from) does not have this original footage in their vaults and because of this we are seeking some other avenues to try to find suitable source material. One route we have pursued has been »

Hellraiser: Bestiary Interview with Mark Miller & Ben Meares

13 August 2014 4:38 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Later this month, we’ll see the release of a brand new Hellraiser comic book mini-series. This time, the series will go with an anthology format, giving us new tales in the Hellraiser universe from a variety of popular and upcoming writers. The first issue contains the start of a six-part serial written by Mark Miller and Ben Meares, where a group sets out to steal Pinhead’s pins, and I caught up with both of them for the latest installment of our Q&A series.

We’ve seen a number of limited Hellraiser comic book series from Boom! and Clive Barker. How did the idea for this anthology series come about? Was it something that you pitched to Clive?

Ben Meares: Hellraiser, in my mind, has always had a certain magic to it because the rules of the mythos can be applied to almost any kind of story.

Mark Miller: Right. »

Farmer Schwarzenegger + Zombie Abigail Breslin = Maggie

12 August 2014 4:15 PM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Schwarzenegger is going to be in a horror genre film. Let that sink in for a moment. Sure, one can argue that The Terminator is essentially a sci-fi slasher. Also, don’t forget he directed a Tales from the Crypt episode as well. Before you cry out Predator as a horror film just simply know, I really don’t think of it as horror.

According to today’s post by Variety, his latest completed film, Maggie, has been added to the Toronto International Film Festival. If you haven’t heard about Maggie yet, good. That’s why we’re here. It has been mentioned online in the past but no one really knew if it was going to be a straight horror film, a drama, a comedy…no one knew. Well, more information has come out and it looks to be more of a zombie drama focusing on the conflict that a farmer, »

A Look Back At: Full Eclipse (1993)!!

6 August 2014 3:06 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The ’90s was an interesting decade to say the least. Growing up, nothing was better to me, than sitting down to watch either a horror film or one of my favorite HBO programs, whether it be Tales From The Crypt or The Kids In The Hall, most of my nights were spent eating McDonald’s and being stuck to the TV. Once in a great while, HBO would premiere films exclusively on their channel, and sometimes those films would be just what I was looking for. Whether it be 1991′s Lovecraftian, Phillip Marlow meets Black Magic type of film Cast A Deadly Spell, or the subject of this A Look Back At article, the 1993 Werewolf Cop film Full Eclipse, HBO really did a hell of a job offering some fun programming.

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. »
