Life-Size Bust of Bela Lugosi’s Dracula

22 June 2015 9:42 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Many actors played Bram Stoker's iconic creature of the night on film, but Bela Lugosi memorably portrayed the bloodsucker on both the stage and screen, playing Dracula on Broadway in the late 1920s before donning the fangs for the classic 1931 film adaptation of Stoker's 1897 novel. Lugosi's version of Dracula is now further immortalized with an incredible new life-size bust from Sideshow Collectibles and Black Heart Enterprises.

Now available to pre-order for $599.99 and expected to ship this summer, Sideshow Collectibles and Black Heart Enterprises' life-size bust of Bela Lugosi's Dracula was authorized by Bela Lugosi Jr. and perfectly captures the entrancing blue eyes that have scared and thrilled viewers for the better part of a century.

Penny Dreadful, Ep. 2.08, “Memento Mori”: “We are the dead!”

22 June 2015 3:36 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Penny Dreadful, Season 2, Episode 8, “Memento Mori”

Written by John Logan

Directed by Kari Skogland

Airs Sundays at 10 pm Et on Showtime

As Penny Dreadful nears the end of its second season, it decides to acknowledge that it has characters beyond Vanessa and Ethan. The pair don’t even appear in this week’s episode, “Memento Mori,” but there’s enough going on to fill up the void.

Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton) has become aware of his enchantment by Evelyn Poole (Helen McCrory), and he doesn’t just mean in the romantic sense — he recalls how on the day of his wife’s funeral, he was at a ball waltzing. That’s simply not the kind of man he knows he is. Evelyn confirms his suspicions by possessing him and causing him to throw a tantrum, but Sir Malcolm is able to break the enchantment, and then unwisely goes off to »

The Last Great Horror Icon Is Gone: Where Are the Future Scare Masters?

13 June 2015 9:51 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 With the death of horror film legend Christopher Lee, the last of the legendary honor guard of horror has passed on. He was part of an elite group that created the horror genre. Lee’s passing is a reminder that it’s been a long time since we had a new horror film superstar. Is the day of the horror film specialist gone forever? Where are the big-screen boogie-men for the 21st century?

                             

Once upon a time there were a group of actors, known as the ‘screen boogiemen’ who created the horror film/monster movie genre (starting in Universal Studios and later in Hammer Studios.) They were specialists who understood the psychology and performance style of horror cinema and became legends in the industry. The first was silent film star Lon Chaney Sr. (Phantom of the Opera, London After Midnight, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, the Unholy Three, the Monster, »

R.I.P. Christopher Lee – Here Are His Ten Best Roles

11 June 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The day monster kids have dreaded for some time has arrived. Mournful, nostalgic, and melancholy – it’s the end of an era for more than one generation of horror fans.  It seemed like Christopher Lee would live through all eternity, but unlike some of the characters he played, there’s no bringing him back to life this time. He made it to 93 and went out on a high note, appearing in the final Hobbit film just this past winter. He had an amazing career of fantastic performances and remains the greatest villain actor in film history. Rip to the last classic horror star and thank you for all the monster memories.

Christopher Lee was married to his wife Birgit (Gitte) for 54 years.

Here, according to Movie Geeks Jim Batts, Dana Jung, Sam Moffitt, and myself, are Christopher Lee’s ten best roles.

Sir Christopher Lee Dead At Age 93; Personal Reflections On A Legend Of The Film Industry

11 June 2015 7:33 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Artist Jeff Marshall created this tribute to Sir Christopher Lee, which was presented to him by Cinema Retro publishers Lee Pfeiffer and Dave Worrall.

By Lee Pfeiffer

Sir Christopher Lee, the acclaimed British actor, passed away last Sunday in London. He was 93 years old. The family waited to make the announcement until all family members could be notified. Lee was an early contributor to Cinema Retro magazine and periodically provided interviews and personal insights into the making of his films. We, along with movie lovers everywhere, mourn his loss. Lee was more often than not associated with the horror film genre, a fact that often frustrated him. He would routinely point out that he made many diverse films and played many diverse roles in movies of all genres, from comedies to westerns. For many years he was most closely associated with the films of Hammer studios, the British production firm »

Film Review: 'Freaks'

10 June 2015 1:46 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ The first American picture to be marketed as an unambiguously supernatural horror experience (released on Valentine's Day, 1931) was Tod Browning's Dracula starring the iconic Bela Lugosi. Universal were at that time in a financial jam, thanks in part to the economic travails of the Great Depression. They found their saviours in the gothic texts of Bram Stoker and Mary Shelley. Rival outfits quickly noticed that audiences were flocking to the likes of Dracula and Frankenstein (1931) and box-office receipts don't lie. MGM (always the classiest studio in Hollywood) decided they too wanted a slice of the lucrative pie, and turned to studio old boy Browning to deliver them their own smash hit.

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is Being Rebooted

27 May 2015 4:33 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

When 20th Century Fox released "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" in 2002, the goal was to launch a new big-budget franchise. But after spending $78 million on the film, it only grossed $179 million worldwide with a disappointing $66 million earned in Us. While the movie was considered a failure (it was also Sean Connery's last film role), Fox has announced that it will reboot the project in hopes of getting it right this time. John Davis (Chronicle) is producing. A director has yet to be hired. The original film was based on a comic book series by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill, and features such literature characters as Allan Quatermain, Captain Nemo, the Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and Mina Harker of Dracula. »

Hit Me: How Johnny Mnemonic Helped Redefine Cyberpunk Cinema in the ’90s

22 May 2015 3:37 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

On May 26th, 1995, music video director and artist Robert Longo made his directorial debut with Johnny Mnemonic, an adaptation of William Gibson’s futuristic short story of the same name (Gibson also penned the screenplay) that starred Keanu Reeves in the titular role as a “mnemonic courier” who finds himself in the middle of a corporate conspiracy with implications for all of mankind.

Johnny Mnemonic celebrates its 20th anniversary this month, and while it may not necessarily be a film many sci-fi fans celebrate, it’s always held a special place in my heart, undoubtedly being one of the coolest films I saw that year and one that also revitalized the cyberpunk film movement (yes, even before The Matrix came along and did it a bit more effectively).

For the uninitiated, Johnny Mnemonic transports us to the year 2021; in the opening text crawl, we learn that corporations have taken over »

Sadie Frost is to play a stripper in a West End play. The 49-year-old star has revealed she will play the late American burlesque entertainer Gypsy Rose Lee in the play, which will tell the story of composer Benjamin Britten, who was one of Gypsy's friends. She exclusively told Bang Showbiz: ''I'm doing a play in the West End playing Gypsy Rose Lee. It's called 'Britten', and is about Benjamin Britten and his life.'' The 'Dracula' actress - who has a son, Finlay, 24, from her relationship with Gary Kemp, as well as Rafferty, 18, Iris, 14, and Rudy, 12, from her marriage to Jude Law - continued to say she ''can't wait'' to take to the stage for the production to show the world her talent as a performer. Speaking about her character, she added: ''She sings, she strips and she has proper amazing lines. I can't wait.'' »

12 Sexiest Female Vampires

19 May 2015 7:14 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Hammer Horror

In the heyday of the ‘sex-vampire’ film, from the late 1960s to the early 1980s, the focus wasn’t on some squeaky-clean Robert-and-Kristen couple but on Eros and Thanatos – the mythical archetypes used to describe sex and death. Exploitation movie distributor Pete Tombs wrote about the sex-vampire phenomenon in his classic 1990s book, Immoral Tales: Sex & Horror Cinema In Europe, with Cathal Tohill. He also interviewed the films’ makers for celebrated Channel 4 series Eurotika!, and snapped up the rights to some of the movies for his company Mondo Macabro. He joins us on a short, heavy-breathing tour through one of the cinema’s most disreputable sub-genres…

“When vampires were first written about, they were like horrible, scuzzy, dirty old men really,” says my old pal Pete Tombs – who, given his lifelong love of the horror genre, really couldn’t have a more apt surname. “Horrible things that »

Meryl Streep, Seth Rogen's 'XMas,' 'Spectre' top Sony Pictures CinemaCon sneak

24 April 2015 1:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Las Vegas - It's not an understatement to suggest that since they last presented their wares to the world's theater owners Sony Pictures has had a pretty dramatic 12 months .   December's North Korean hacking scandal made the release of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's "The Interview" a global news story where the studio and exhibitors blamed each other for not screening the film in mainstream theaters.  And, frankly, when Potus gets involved there better be a lot of water under that bridge to put all that behind you.  Five months later Sony has a new Chairman (Tom Rothman) and, luckily, much better films to help heal some delicate wounds. The studio didn't have the star power to rival previous presenters Paramount and Warner Bros, but they did bring a lot of new footage and also made some news. First, let's get to the news.

23 specially-shot movie teaser trailers

21 April 2015 4:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Psycho to Jurassic Park, here are 23 teaser trailers that don't show a frame of footage from the movies they're advertising...

These days, we're used to the marketing hype for a major film building up about two years ahead of release. Visitors to Comic-Con got a preview of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, for example, more than two years ahead of its due date. Our collective hunger for a first look at major forthcoming films is such that, it seems, studios are keen to show off their work-in-progress earlier and earlier.

But there are ways of teasing a forthcoming movie without showing a frame of the finished product, which is where the following list comes in. They're all examples of promos that manage to get across the flavour of a future film without going into story details. Some of them were made before a foot of celluloid was exposed, »

Mike Mignola Takes Frankenstein Underground

19 March 2015 10:38 AM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

His name is synonymous with Hellboy, but for five issues this spring Mike Mignola will be stepping away from Hellboy to visit with one of the greatest monsters in history: Frankenstein. In Frankenstein Underground, a five issue mini-series from Dark Horse, the monster finds himself at an ancient temple in Mexico and endears to make a friend before things go (inevitably) wrong. Mignola chatted with us about his version of the monster and its relationship to the original novel, as well as his general creative process when writing for artist Ben Stenbeck. Plus, we couldn’t resist asking about Hellboy In Hell, just a little. And beer.

Famous Monsters. Frankenstein Underground is a new spinoff from the Hellboy graphic novel House Of The Livind Dead. What do you think it is about Mary Shelley’s creation that has made people develop so many iterations of him? People are always writing and talking about him. »

Exclusive: Watch Francis Ford Coppola Talk to Robert Rodriguez About "The Things They Fire You For"

17 February 2015 7:37 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Even if the only movies that Francis Ford Coppola ever made were the three Godfather films, he'd still be a cinematic legend. But he didn't just stop there: The Conversation, The Outsiders, Rumble Fish, Dracula, Apocalypse Now. The list goes on and on. He is, simply put, one of the Greats. That's why Coppola is such a welcome choice for The Director's Chair, a fantastic ongoing series on El Rey Network where Robert Rodriguez chats candidly with filmmakers about the entirety of their careers. In the past he's hosted Guillermo del Toro, Quentin Tarantino and John Carpenter, and they've all resulted in very worthwhile conversations about the realities of being a working artist in Hollywood. Speaking of that, we've got a clip from the upcoming The...

'Crimson Peak' trailer knows what women want - decadent creepiness and Tom Hiddleston

13 February 2015 11:15 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Goth is dead, long live goth! “Crimson Peak” is bringing back the heyday of “Bram Stoker’s Dracula.” A luscious color palette can be just as menacing as a blue filter. Sometimes more so, since audiences are unnerved by a pop of canary yellow when Color Theory is telling the hindbrain it should be slate grey. And of course, what gothic tale would be complete without an enigma in a crushed velvet waistcoat? Tom Hiddleston is a man of many talents. One of the his most appreciated ones is breathing life into dangerous, brooding men. His breakout role as Loki in “Thor” led to his turn as Adam in “Only Lovers Left Alive,” and now the mysterious Sir Thomas Sharpe in Guillermo del Toro’s “Crimson Peak.” Based on the trailer above, Victorian ladies aren’t the only ones who will be getting the vapors.   I mean, is del Toro trying to kill us? »

‘Dracula Untold’ Defeats ‘John Wick’ on Home Video Sales Charts

12 February 2015 9:41 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a close battle for the top-selling disc the week ending Feb. 8, a reboot of one of Universal’s classic monster franchises narrowly outsold the latest Keanu Reeves actioner.

Universal Pictures’ “Dracula Untold” debuted atop the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales charts, which combine DVD and Blu-ray unit sales data, and the dedicated Blu-ray disc sales chart. The film, which grossed $56.3 million at the domestic box office, stars Luke Evans in a story about how the famed vampire came to be.

Lionsgate’s “John Wick” was a close No. 2 on both sales charts, selling 95% as many total copies and 97% as many Blu-ray discs; 50% of “Wick” unit sales were on Blu-ray, compared with 49% for “Dracula.”

“Wick,” a critically lauded thriller starring Keanu Reeves, grossed $43 million at the domestic box office, and also debuted atop Home Media magazine’s rental chart for the week. “Dracula,” like most Universal new releases, is held »

Quiz: How well do you know your vampire movies?

9 February 2015 7:32 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Our obsession with big screen vampires dates back nearly a century since the blood-sucking undead Nosferatu stalked his way through the shadows in F.W. Murnau’s 1922 film.   An unliscensed version of Bram Stoker’s DraculaNosferatu paved the way for every vamp from Blacula and those vamps slayed by Buffy to Edward Cullen and co.

Now we’re getting a look at a whole new crop of vampires in Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi’s uproarious mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows.  The hilarious film focuses on four vampires – Viago, Vladislav, Petyr, and Deacon – who are flatmates in Wellington, New Zealand.  Along with their human friend Stu, the immortal souls struggle with the mundane everyday tasks like paying the bills and the covering their share of household work via the chore wheel, because vampires! They’re just like us!

The riotous film has been touring the festival circuit for over a year, »

Breathe team sings with Beggar’s Opera

6 February 2015 10:00 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Partners behind Breathe Umphefumlo reteaming on new slate of films.

The partners behind Berlinale Special world premiere Breathe Umphefumlo – Cape Town, South Africa-based Isango Ensemble, Advantage Entertainment, and the UK’s Film & Music Entertainment (F&Me) – are reteaming on a slate of new films starting with an adaptation of John Gay’s The Beggar’s Opera to shoot in Cape Town in August.

Isango will transport Gay’s 1728 satire/morality play to the jazzy underworld of 1950s Cape Town. Mark Dornford-May, who won the Golden Bear with U-Carmen eKhayelitsha, is again directing.

Dornford-May said, “The Beggar’s Opera is a savagely funny satire on money, morals and marriage — as relevant and biting today as it was when first written.  Setting the film in post war colonial Cape Town will give it a visual style and a music flair that will inform the original – and take it further.”

South African Reboot of ‘La Boheme’ to Bow at Berlin Film Festival

6 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The South African team behind 2005 Golden Bear winner “U-Carmen eKhayelitsha” will be taking a new adaptation of “La Boheme” to Berlin this year.

“Breathe — Umphefumlo,” which transports the classic Puccini opera to a Cape Town township, will have its world premiere Feb. 8 as a special presentation at the 65th Berlinale.

As with “U-Carmen,” which was an adaptation of Bizet’s opera, featuring South Africa’s award-winning Isango Ensemble, helmer Mark Dornford-May looked for a way to translate “La Boheme” to a modern South African township setting — a hallmark of the group, which was founded in 2000 by Dornford-May, and draws its performers from the distinct neighborhoods surrounding Cape Town.

The director says he found parallels between the Paris of “La Boheme” and contemporary Cape Town in an unlikely place: Tuberculosis claims the life of one of the main characters in the original opera, set in the 1840s, and continues to »
