‘Vampyros Lesbos’ Blu-ray Review

28 November 2015 2:17 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Severin Films make their return to the UK home video market with the Blu-ray release of two Jess Franco films in their library, She Killed in Ecstasy and Vampyros Lesbos – erotically charged Euro-horrors starring Franco fave Soledad Miranda which mark the pinnacle of Franco’s career. The former, a revenge thriller, is considered the best of the 200-odd films the Spanish auteur has made, whilst the latter is a crowd-pleasing slice of sleaze (who doesn’t love lesbian vampires) that is also an oddly-faithful adaptation of Dracula.

“Against, against”: Creative Destruction with Albert Serra

20 November 2015 11:52 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

This interview was originally published online by Sight & Sound. It is being re-published on the Notebook in conjunction with Albert Serra's Story of My Death playing on Mubi in most countries in the world through December 14, 2015.If new movie masterpieces are proclaimed at each and every major film festival each and every year, the notable absence of adventurous, exciting and otherwise transgressive cinema amongst those lauded should inspire us to question not only the terms we use to describe films but also the standards to which we hold them.Catalan filmmaker Albert Serra, a transcendental minimalist who wields his camera like only a handful of fellow feature-film digital adventurers – among them Pedro CostaDavid Lynch and Michael Mann – is one of the few who produces work that truly creates a new encounter with the audience.

Why the Marvel approach doesn't make sense for Universal's classic monster reboots

18 November 2015 4:29 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Is Universal on its way to botching its planned series of Universal Monster reboots? Based on a piece published yesterday in Variety, it's certainly starting to sound that way. According to the article, which features interviews with Universal head Donna Langley and writers Alex Kurtzman ("Transformers") and Chris Morgan ("Furious 7"), the studio has hired a stable of storyboard artists, designers and writers to bring such characters as Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, The Mummy and the Wolfman to life for contemporary audiences. The iconic monsters, each of which has a specific writer or writers attached, will inhabit a "shared universe" in a series of interconnected films set in modern day. As Kurtzman put it: “The idea is that we have a deep bench of brains to consult with about how their monster fits into our world as we go forward." Added Morgan: ““This is not a heightened world. We’re exploring »

7 Horror Movies That Prove The Writer Is King

16 November 2015 10:30 AM, PST | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

Horror writers have inspired countless movies based on their books. In the modern era, Bram Stoker's book inspired Dracula in 1931, followed soon thereafter by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's Frankenstein spawning the classic monster movie. Ever since then, horror filmmakers have been driven by literary sources, whether they realize it consciously or not. But of all the writers who have inspired the creators of more recent horror movies -- Stephen King, Clive Barker, Edgar Allan Poe...

75 years ago today: ‘Fantasia’ opened in theaters

13 November 2015 4:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

75 years ago today, Disney took a risk with the opening of its experimental animated film, “Fantasia.” The third feature film made by the House of Mouse, “Fantasia” was released as a limited-run roadshow attraction, starting on November 13, 1940. The New York Times review published the following day declared it to be a film that “really dumps conventional formulas overboard and boldly reveals the scope of films for imaginative excursion.” Images of Mickey Mouse set to music by Paul Dukas, hippos dancing to the tune of Ponchielli, and centaurs and cupids backed by Beethoven have all become iconic in the decades since its release. The film has further secured its pop culture status with “Fantasia” video games, a follow-up feature called “Fantasia 2000,” and with a spot on AFI’s list of the greatest 100 American films. One “Fantasia” segment will soon get the live action treatment: the nightmarish “Night on Bald Mountain »

Jon Spaihts and Eric Heisserer to pen Van Helsing reboot

13 November 2015 12:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Universal is pressing ahead with its plans to reboot Van Helsing as part of its cinematic Monster universe, with Variety reporting that Jon Spaihts (Doctor Strange) and Eric Heisserer (The Thing) have signed on to co-write the script.

Spaihts has previously penned Universal’s upcoming remake of The Mummy, which will launch the new cinematic universe when it is released in 2017. Details are currently being mapped out as to how the shared universe will incorporate Van Helsing, a character who first appeared in Bram Stoker’s classic novel Dracula.

Universal’s previous stab at a Van Helsing movie starred Hugh Jackman in the title role, and was released in 2004, grossing $300 million around the globe.

Jon Spaihts And Eric Heisserer Plucked To Write Van Helsing Film Reboot

12 November 2015 7:24 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Notorious monster-hunter Gabriel Van Helsing is back in vogue. Barely a week has passed since we brought you the news that Syfy had acquired a gender-swapped treatment of the title mercenary for an all-new TV series and the long-gestating film reboot, simmering in development over at Universal, has recruited Jon Spaihts and Eric Heisserer to pen a screenplay.

Word comes by way of Variety, noting that the proposed film will dovetail with the studio’s ambitious shared monster universe, which will house such nightmarish creations as Frankenstein’s Monster, Dracula, the Invisible Man, the Creature from the Black Lagoon and the Wolf Man. It’s unclear yet how the titular mercenary will be integrated into the interconnected movie-verse, though the outlet suggests that cracking that degree of synergy is still being mapped out.

First introduced in Bram Stoker’s seminal Dracula, Van Helsing was adapted to the big screen in »

"Van Helsing" Reboot Scores Two New Scribes

11 November 2015 8:30 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Screenwriters Jon Spaihts ("Doctor Strange," "Prometheus") and Eric Heisserer (the "Elm Street" & "The Thing" reboots) have signed on to co-write the "Van Helsing" reboot at Universal Pictures.

Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan will produce the film which will be a part of Universal's push to establish a classic monsters on-screen universe made up of interconnected films which start with a reboot of "The Mummy".

Hugh Jackman starred in the 2004 film adaptation very loosely based on the character from Bram Stoker's famed novel "Dracula". In this version, he was also hunting other supernatural creatures like Frankenstein and the Wolf Man.

Van Helsing: female-fronted TV series in development

3 November 2015 12:50 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Syfy has put a Van Helsing TV series into development, focusing on female protagonist Vanessa Helsing…

Presumably hoping to shake off any lingering memories of the Hugh Jackman-starring movie, Syfy is putting its own Van Helsing TV series together.

Following in the footsteps of Ghostbusters and – as of yesterday – Ocean’s Eleven, Syfy’s protagonist here will be Vanessa Helsing, a female version of the iconic Vampire hunter.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Vanessa Helsing will be ‘the next in a lineage of warriors who must lead mankind against a world controlled by vampires.’ She will be ‘resurrected five years in the future’ and find that she is ‘essentially humanity’s last hope to lead an offensive to take back what has been lost.’

The word ‘lineage’ there makes us think that this new take might use Professor Abraham van Hesling – the original version of the character, »

Neil Labute Making ‘Van Helsing’ as a TV Show for SyFy

2 November 2015 2:30 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

There have been two great depictions of Van Helsing on the big screen. Edward Van Sloan played him as a strong-willed doctor in 1931’s Dracula. Then over 60 years later Sir Anthony Hopkins gave a completely different performance in Francis Ford Coppola’s (Apocalypse Now) adaptation, as a wild, funny, and arguably crazy Van Helsing. When Universal attempted to […]

200 Greatest Horror Films (40-31)

29 October 2015 7:19 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Special Mention: The Most Dangerous Game

Directed by Irving Pichel and Ernest B. Schoedsack

Written by James Creelman

USA, 1932

Genre: Survival Horror

The first of many official and unofficial screen versions of Richard Connell’s short story of the same name, The Most Dangerous Game was made in 1932, in the era known as “Pre-Code Hollywood,” a time when filmmakers were able to get away with sexual innuendo, illegal drug use, adultery, abortion, intense violence, homosexuality, and much more. It was during this time that a film like The Most Dangerous Game was allowed to be made and shown to the general public without fear of censorship. The film was put together by producer Willis O’Brien while in pre-production on King Kong, and features several of the same cast and crew members, as well as props and sets from Kong. Despite these obvious cost-cutting measures, Dangerous Game never feels like a second-rate production, »

The Golden Girls aired on NBC for seven seasons between 1985 and 1992. The series may have ended, but the series lives on in syndication, and many fans are still loyal to the series to this day.

Top 50 terrifying TV characters

29 October 2015 10:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Jokers, circus masters and demonic dolls. Which TV characters terrify you? Den Of Geek asked its writers that very question…

The subconscious is a terrible place; dark, mysterious and peopled by spectres from the past. As a bit of a laugh then, we sent our writers journeying into theirs and asked them to drag out any TV terrors they found lurking in the shadows.

Some television fears had been ensconced there since childhood, others were more recent tenants. Some were morally terrifying; human beings with icy hearts capable of atrocities, others were simply… atrocities.

Join us as we count down in order of terror from the sort-of-creepy to the downright terrifying, the 50 TV characters that, for whatever reason, give our writers chills. It’s by no means an exhaustive list, so feel free to fill in gaps by adding your own peculiar television nightmares below…

Buffy's Juliet Landau ropes in Joss Whedon, Tim Burton for 'definitive vampire genre documentary'

27 October 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel actress Juliet Landau is quite the expert on vampires, having spent seven years portraying Drusilla in the TV shows.

Now she plans to put that to good use and create the 'definitive vampire genre documentary' alongside her husband Deverill Weekes.

The actress - who is seeking crowdfunding support to bring the documentary to screen - has gathered interviews with many experts on the genre, including directors, writers and actors across film, television and novels.

Buffy and Angel creator Joss Whedon has taken part, as has Tim Burton, who directed Landau in vampire film Dark Shadows alongside Johnny Depp.

Gary Oldman, who played Dracula in Francis Ford Coppola's film of the same name, will make an appearance, as will Anne Rice and Charlaine Harris, authors of Interview with the Vampire and the True Blood novels respectively.

The documentary's description reads: "It is a tapestry with beautiful, »

The True Stories Behind 10 Unforgettable Horror Movies

25 October 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Whether you're a fright fanatic, a middle-of-the-row horror fan, or a "someone-dragged-me-here" who barely watches from between terrified, trembling fingers, you've probably noticed an interesting trend: a lot of recent horror movies are based on true stories. At least that's what the filmmakers would have us believe.

The all-too-common "based on a true story" or "based on true events," along with the less reliable "inspired by true events," have become ubiquitous additions to most horror movie marketing campaigns. But this is nothing new. Going all the way back to the "Texas Chainsaw Massacre's" iconic 1974 tagline -- "What happened is true. Now the motion picture that's just as real." -- the truth has always been an important tactic in upping the fear factor for audiences.

If events truly did happen, does that make it more frightening? The recent success of movies like "The Conjuring" (2013), "The Possession" (2012) and "The Haunting in Connecticut" (2009) point to a big "yes, »
