Finals Week: The Rise of Women in Horror Fandom and Film

20 December 2010 9:16 PM, PST | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

By James Morgart

“There is no pleasure. There is no pain. There is only skin.” - Pinhead, Hellraiser III

“Women tend to be more tolerant about visceral things because they have more direct personal experience with them. They cope with periods once a month, they go through childbirth and they are usually the ones who look after the bleeding and battered limbs when the kids take a tumble. They can put blood and gore in context and generally cope better than men.” - Bela Lugosi

Most scholarship on the horror film has assumed that males are the primary spectators of horror; however, there have been developments, both in scholarship as well as in mainstream media, to contradict this point. In 2009, journalist Michelle Orange pointed out, in an article written for the New York Times, “Recent box office receipts show that women have an even bigger appetite for these [horror] films than men. »

'WoW: Cataclysm,' Julian Assange, And The 'Tron: Legacy' Ost In Today's Twitter Report

7 December 2010 1:28 PM, PST | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

Wrapping up the report for this morning, I'm already predicting that tomorrow's feed will include numerous well-articulated critiques of the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con hotel registration process, but for now, the big topics of the day are Julian Assange's arrest in London and reactions to the "Tron: Legacy" soundtrack that's shown up on Amazon for $3.99.

Jhonen Vasquez and Jeremy Haun's responses to the new music from Daft Punk for "Legacy" differ greatly, and the range of posts about WikiLeaks' founder being taken into custody was mixed as well. Find out who's predicting what, where Andy Kuhn and Jimmy Palmiotti agree on "Skyline" and who's playing "World of Warcraft: Cataclysm" down below.

I'm @brianwarmoth, and these retweets comprise the Twitter Report for December 7, 2010.

Tsa Pat-Downs, Four Loko Side Effects, And 'The Walking Dead' In Today's Twitter Report

22 November 2010 11:29 AM, PST | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

If you dug Robert Kirkman's "Walking Dead" episode last night, you weren't alone. He was a compliment magnet last night in the Twitter Report feed, and though Kirkman didn't direct, he did leave to door open to that possibility for next season.

Elsewhere, airport pat-downs courtesy of the Tsa were a hot topic. John Layman submitted his feelings on the matter in no uncertain terms, while James Robinson got sentimental about Michael Jackson and Rebekah Isaacs believes that she's discovered the worst Four Loko has to offer. Check out her warning after the jump along with some Chris Samnee art the hypothetical Harry Potter contemplations of Joe Hill.

I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for November 22, 2010.

"Step Up 4Ever" and Suggested Future "Step Up" Titles

15 November 2010 4:28 PM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

When Summit Entertainment releases a fourth "Step Up" film in 2012, it will be an impressive accomplishment for at least two reasons. First of all, at four entries,"Step Up" is the longest running dance movie franchise in history. Second, they've managed to maintain a nearly impossible feat: giving their sequels ridiculous names that incorporate a numeral into the title. "Step Up 2: The Streets" begat "Step Up 3D" which begat "Step Up 4Ever."

The question of what to name sequels is always an interesting one. There's just so many options to choose from. Do you go with the plain old number ("Lethal Weapon 2") or use a Roman numeral ("The Odd Couple II") for a touch of class? Should you add a "part" ("The Godfather Part II") to make it sound like the sequel was always intended as part of the plan? Should you spell out the number ("The Ring Two »

Dino De Laurentiis, 1919-2010

12 November 2010 7:00 AM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

You sometimes hear filmmakers described as "a director's director." Dino Di Laurentiis, who died yesterday at the age of 91, was a producer's producer. In a career that spanned almost seventy years, he made every kind of movie imaginable, from arthouse classics to major blockbusters, from mainstream fare to quirky genre oddities, and worked with an impressive array of director's from Federico Fellini to Michael Mann, Sidney Lumet to Milos Foreman.

For a comprehensive overview of his life, you can read The New York Times obit by Dave Kehr, but I'd recommend Jeffrey Wells' take over at Hollywood Elsewhere, not because he has a particularly encyclopedic knowledge of the man but because he decided to bash his body of work in the obit -- calling him "a primitive showman" with the "philosophy... of a wheeler-dealer" -- which prompted an interesting discussion about De Laurentiis' legacy and the ethics of obituary writing. »

Event Report: ZomBCon: Carnell's Diary of the Dead

12 November 2010 12:08 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

A unique event - a convention centered solely on the undead and “zombie culture” - took place here in the Emerald City. Organized by promoter Ryan Reiter (of “Red, White, and Dead” fame), this was an undertaking the size of which would have been bold for even an already established convention. For a first-time con, the scope of it was impressive, to say the least.

The guest list alone was one that would cause most promoters to lay awake at night fitfully worrying over logistics: George Romero, Bruce Campbell, Malcolm McDowell, Chuck Palahniuk (author, Fight Club), Max Brooks (author, World War Z), John Amplas (Martin, Day Of The Dead), Terry Alexander (Day Of The Dead), Scott Reiniger (Dawn Of The Dead) Ted Raimi (Spider-man), The Ladies of The Evil Dead (Theresa Tilly, Betsy Baker, Ellen Sandweiss), Danny Hicks (Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn), Timothy Patrick Quill (Army Of Darkness), the Zombie Research Society, »

R.I.P. Dino De Laurentiis (1919-2010)

11 November 2010 12:25 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Legendary film producer Dino De Laurentiis has passed away today aged 91. Born in Italy in 1919, Laurentiis served in World War II before establishing himself as a producer with Italian offerings such as Giuseppe De Santis' 1949 classic Bitter Rice and later efforts such as Federico Fellini's La Strada (1954) - which won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film - and Nights of Cabiria (1957), along with the cult classic Barbarella (1968, dir. Roger Vadim).

After moving to the Us in the early 1970s and establishing his own studio De Laurentiis Entertainment Group, he enjoyed a string of early successes with the likes of Serpico (1973, dir. Sidney Lumet), Death Wish (1974, dir. Michael Winner), Three Days of the Condor (1975, dir. Syndey Pollack), The Shootist (1976, dir. Don Siegel) and The Serpent's Egg (1977, dir. Ingmar Bergman).

In the 1980s De Laurentiis became known for cult classics such as Flash Gordon (1980, dir. Mike Hodges), Conan the Barbarian (1982, dir. »

Rest in Peace: Dino De Laurentiis

11 November 2010 12:20 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Few producers in Hollywood have been as prolific as Dino De Laurentiis. For decades the man pumped out tons of genre films, sometimes one right after the other. It's with a heavy heart that we report today that he's no longer with us.

According to Italian website Ansa, De Laurentiis, who brought us hundreds of films such as Hannibal Rising, Red Dragon, Hannibal, Army of Darkness, Cat's Eye, King Kong, King Kong Lives, Maximum Overdrive, Silver Bullet, Dune, The Dead Zone and Amityville II: The Possession, has passed away in Los Angeles at the age of 91.

At this time we here at Dread Central would like to offer our sincerest condolences to Dino's friends, family, and constituents. Thanks for the memories, sir.

Rip Dino De Laurentiis

11 November 2010 11:33 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

.

Ja from Mnpp here. When I think of the name Dino De Laurentiis my mind instantly flashes to a bunch of much beloved cheese-fests from the 70s and 80s - Barbarella, the two Conan movies, Flash Gordon. But the man did it all, from Nights of Cabiria to Army of Darkness.

I don't know anything about his personal life but he's one of those legendary movie-men whose names become as big as the very big movies that they make. He won the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award in 2001, on top of a statue for La strada in 1957. He was 91 years old.

What's your favorite movie of his?

R.I.P. Dino De Laurentiis

11 November 2010 9:38 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The colourful, eccentric and never less than ostentatious Italian film producer and entrepreneur Dino De Laurentiis passed away at his Beverly Hills home yesterday. He was 91.

After producing his first features in the 1940's and teaming with producer Carlo Ponti on several prestigious Italian films in the 1950's, De Laurentiis turned his attention to what would become his trademark - ambitious, expensive and epic scale international co-productions more concerned with being popular entertainment than critically lauded.

Two studio complexes he built, one in Italy and later one in North Carolina, were both forced to close due to tough economic times and various famous flops he produced. Nevertheless with 166 films under his belt, De Laurentiis will long be remembered for many defining works.

Amongst his earlier credits were Federico Fellini's "La Strada" and "Nights of Cabiria", Roger Vadim’s “Barbarella”, Mario Camerini's "Ulysses", King Vidor's "War and Peace".

In memoriam: producer Dino De Laurentiis

11 November 2010 7:26 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dino De Laurentiis, producer of such films as Barbarella, The Dead Zone and Hannibal, has sadly passed away.

Producing more than 500 movies over almost 60 years, Dino De Laurentiis became famous for his grand, sweeping epics such as The Bible: In The Beginning, Battle Of The Bulge and the 1976 remake of King Kong.

Nevertheless, De Laurentiis’ most interesting and fondly remembered films were smaller in scale. 1973’s Serpico, directed by Sidney Lumet, boasted a remarkable performance from Al Pacino, while 1983’s The Dead Zone paired director David Cronenberg with Christopher Walken in unforgettable style.

Inevitably for such a prolific producer, not everything De Laurentiis’ fingers touched turned to gold – Flash Gordon, Dune and Maximum Overdrive (writer Stephen King’s first and only directorial credit) all underperformed at the box office – films such as Death Wish, King Kong and, most recently, Hannibal, were huge commercial successes.

De Laurentiis also produced such cult classics as Barbarella, »

His daughter, Raffaella, released a statement, confirming: "Dino De Laurentiis, patriarch of the De Laurentiis family, Academy Award-winning producer and film legend, died on Wednesday, November 10, 2010 at 10Pm (Pst) at his home in Beverly Hills, California surrounded by family. He was 91."

Dino De Laurentiis Dies Age 91

Dino De Laurentiis, the Italian producer of nearly 150 films, including the likes of Barbarella, Flash Gordon and 1976's King Kong, has died.To say that the man was a legend in his own lifetime is almost unfair bearing in mind his startling body of work. He worked on an incredible array of projects, straddling virtually every conceivable genre, from 1976's Deathwish to 1992's Red Dragon, taking in Waterloo, Army Of Darkness, Serpico and U-571 along the way.The son of an Italian pastamaker, Dino worked his way up from humble propman to box-office producer of American smashes such as 2001's Hannibal at the age of 83.He worked with a huge number of industry legends, from Fellini (in La Strada) to David Lynch (Dune), over the course of his working career, eventually winning lifetime achievement awards at the Venice Film Festival in 2003, as well as the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award »

Election Results, Captain America, And 'Cowboys And Aliens' In Today's Twitter Report

3 November 2010 10:01 AM, PDT | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

If you're worried about Jon Favreau getting lonely while he's slaving away edition "Cowboys and Aliens" together, don't be. His tweets lately seem to indicate that he's had plenty of company with visitors like Guillermo del Toro and Edgar Wright. Plenty of other faces in our feed could have used some company last night, however; with Prop 19 failing in California and lots of incumbent candidates in elections across the U.S. getting the boot, there was a lot to react to last night.

Meanwhile, if you need something to react to right now, I highly recommend some Hulk art that Philip Tan posted and some Supergirl pencils that Jamal Igle happened to have sitting around. Check them out after the jump along with Michael Cho's assessment of "Captain America: The First Avenger."

'The Walking Dead' Creators And Cast Name Their Favorite Horror Movies

31 October 2010 11:01 AM, PDT | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

"The Walking Dead" makes its long-awaited debut on AMC this weekend, offering one heck of a Halloween treat for television audiences.

Given the timing of the premiere, it's easy to guess what the "Walking Dead" cast and creators will be doing this Halloween, but what about in years past? Given all the time they've spent around zombies lately, I asked "The Walking Dead" team about their go-to horror movies for the Halloween season, and which scare-fests get pulled from their shelf every year around this time.

We gave you an early peek at Frank Darabont and Gale Anne Hurd's answers last week, and now you can find out what the rest of the cast and creative team had to say.

Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes in "The Walking Dead"): I don't know whether it was that, when I was younger there were better movies being made, I'm not sure — but I loved "The Omen. »
