Fright Exclusive Interview With Locker 13/Monster Squad Star Jon Gries!

2 April 2014 4:12 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

 

Jon Gries has had quite the career so far, playing many characters that fans adore all around the world. Ask any horror (on non-horror fan as well to be perfectly honest) to name one of their favorite monster movies from the ’80s and more times than not, one of their answers will include Fred Dekker’s The Monster Squad, in which Gries played “Desperate Man”, a character that never failed to get vicious and hairy when the moon came out. Other film roles, like Real Genius, Napoleon Dynamite and the Taken films have kept Gries constantly working, and his status as one of the hardest working character actors around is legendary. We were able to chat with Jon for a bit, to talk about his role in the Twilight Zone-like anthology, Locker 13, and as expected, it was definitely a pleasure. Read on!

 

First off, Locker 13 has an old-school vibe to it, »

Review: Locker 13

29 March 2014 12:36 AM, 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, »

Player Piano: Interesting Ideas Churn Into Nonsensical Slog in Mira’s Third Outing

Back with his first film since the 2010 potboiler, Agnosia, Spanish director Eugenio Mira returns to filming in English with Grand Piano, an ambitiously designed film that desperately tries to work around a central gimmick. Featuring inspired use of several musical selections and slick editing, which seem designed to pick up the slack for the lack of dramatic tension in a laughable narrative that only becomes more ludicrous as more details become revealed, its initial set-up is quite certainly engaging in that it creates a curiosity to want to know more. That’s saying a lot considering there are several obnoxious supporting characters and wooden performances that muddle the mood early on.

Tom Selznick (Elijah Wood) is known as the most talented pianist of his generation, but he hasn’t performed in public for five years due to »

Artists and Models

22 March 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

1955′s Artists and Models, directed by Frank Tashlin, neatly satirizes the cold-war paranoia of the fifties (and the McCarthy hearings in particular) by focusing on a similar witch hunt, the war against comic books.

Tashlin’s film, starring Dean Martin as a failed “fine” artist reduced to drawing for comic books and Jerry Lewis as the fella who reads them, has its basis in fact (more or less): future Mad publisher William Gaines actually appeared before a 1954 Senate subcommittee on juvenile delinquency where he defended his comics line including the politico’s favorite easy target, Tales from the Crypt.

Tashlin cut his teeth directing some of the more transgressive cartoons for Columbia and Warner Bros. so it’s no surprise he’s on the side of the angels (in this case Gaines),  blasting anything in sight with a pretentious bone in its body. In Artists and Models, fine art »

Comic Book Review: 'Afterlife with Archie #4: Archibald Rex'

6 March 2014 2:30 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

“Sure you’re ready for this kind of responsibility, son?”

This is tragedy.

When we first learned about Afterlife with Archie, it sounded like high camp, a way for the squeaky-clean Riverdale gang to get its hands dirty with the latest pop culture trend.  It hasn’t turned out that way, because writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and artist Francesco Francavilla understand that in order to make a horror story scary, you have to love the people in peril.  Archie comics have existed since the early 1940s, and by the nature of familiarity, the creators don’t have to work hard to generate affection or sympathy for these characters; it’s already there, ingrained into our collective consciousness.  It’s to Aguirre-Sacasa’s and Francavilla’s credit that they do work hard to earn that affection, treating Afterlife as a reader’s first exposure to these people.

Briefs: Travoltify Your Name, Tom Daley Is An Inspiration, And The New Cast of “Dancing With The … Stars?”

Birthday shoutouts go to Landon Donovan (above), who is 32, Adrian Zmed is 60, Chaz Bono is 45, and the faboo Catherine O’Hara is 60. Sexy Holidays to you!

Fox has picked its Bruce Wayne for Gotham, and it’s … a little kid! Which makes perfect sense, of course. I don’t know why the hell I thought it would be a hot twenty-something.

I’m verklempt. I mean seriously having palpitations. I already posted the audio of “Barracuda” from tonight’s Glee, and here are Santana, Elliot, and Rachel doing Laura Branigan‘s classic “Gloria” (a song which may come in … very high … on my Top 100 Ladies of The 80′s List). The late Laura is my second all-time favorite singer, and I love when she gets recognition.

Tales from the Crypt 2×07 – “The Sacrifice” Review

21 February 2014 5:00 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Original airdate – May 15th, 1990

There’s a reason I don’t usually remember the Tales From the Crypt episodes with no supernatural leanings – it’s because they’re bland. Look, every episode, you’ll find a single certainty: there’s going to be someone getting killed or someone deserving of some major cosmic comeuppance, and then they get their just desserts. It’s how Gaines structured the books. But taking away the supernatural element, makes damn sure that the whole reason for watching the show is gone; because there isn’t a monster that’s going to come back in the last act and take vengeance for the untimely death of the victim or victims in question. So, what you’re left with in the end, is just human cruelty without the comic book retribution that makes the death and gore so much easier to swallow. But the problem with »

An Interview with Lance Henriksen, Part 1: Projects and Philosophy

21 February 2014 1:00 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

At a recent signing at Dark Delicacies, I was able to sit down with Lance Henriksen and speak for a few moments. I thought we would be talking about his recent western/supernatural graphic novel project with Joe Maddrey entitled To Hell You Ride, but, as you'll soon encounter like I did in this multi-part interview, the conversation soon took on a life of its own.   Fearnet: I hear that you and Joe Maddrey have been working on the graphic novel To Hell You Ride for a couple of years.   Henriksen: Yeah. Tom Mandrake lives in New Jersey and Joe and I live out here [in California]. What started all of this is that I wrote a script 20-25 years ago called Telluride.   A Western?   It was this story. I was down at Comic-Con and Mike Richardson [of Dark Horse Comics] shook my hand and said, "Do you want to do a comic? I just shook your hand, »
