A Sneak Peek of the Graphic Novel Adaptation of Shakespeare vs. Lovecraft

18 July 2012 5:35 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

A graphic novel adaptation is on its way for D.R. O'Brien's horror-comedy mash-up Shakespeare vs. Lovecraft, and we have a few preview panels provided by the author that reveal Juliet is not the girl she used to be! Check 'em out!

Synopsis:

“We are such stuff as dreams are made on; and our little life is rounded with a sleep.” -- William Shakespeare

“In his house at R’lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.” -- Howard Phillips Lovecraft

In the same putrid vein as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Shakespeare vs. Lovecraft slithers hideously onto the literary mash-up scene, whispering of cosmic horrors and eldritch tales whilst espousing sweet soliloquies and profoundly contemplating mankind’s place in the universe.

Prospero, driven dangerously insane by prolonged exposure to the dread Necronomicon, makes a terrible pact with the titanic alien beast known as Cthulhu. Now only his enchantress daughter, Miranda, and a »

Review: The Theatre Bizarre (DVD)

7 May 2012 9:18 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In the tradition of movies like George Romero’s Creepshow, Trilogy of Terror and Asylum comes The Theatre Bizarre, a collection of six short films with plenty of blood to fling around, but sadly not much else. The film opens with a woman who enters an abandoned theater and encounters Udo Kier, playing an automaton host who introduces these six stories to an audience of just one.

Mother of Toads is the first story, presenting a nod to Lovecraft transplanted to France. Catriona MacColl plays a street vendor who entices a young man with the promise of getting his hands on a copy of the fabled Necronomicon. He takes the bait, leaving his girlfriend behind at their hotel and discovers too late that he must pay for his curiosity. The short seems to be inspired in part by the film The Maze, one of the first 3-D horror films that »

To Get Ready for 'Cabin in the Woods,' Here Are The Top 5 Cabin Movies

10 April 2012 7:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Everything from “The Truman Show” to John Carpenter’s “Halloween” is chopped up and blended in the pop culture Cuisinart that is Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon’s irrepressible “Cabin in the Woods” (read our review from SXSW here). But it quite clearly owes a certain debt to a very specific type of horror sub-genre set primarily in a rickety homestead in the forest, one just desolate or decrepit enough to be rife with the possibility of evil spirits, demented madmen, psychic trauma… or all of the above. When Whedon originally came to Goddard with the concept, he gleefully suggested making a “cabin movie.” While “Cabin in the Woods” ended up being much more than that (it's an acidic takedown and euphoric celebration of all things horror), we wanted to briefly cite five of the films that contributed, either directly or through the pop culture ether, to “Cabin in the Woods. »

Looking back at From Beyond

4 April 2012 5:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Re-Animator director Stuart Gordon returned a year later with another Hp Lovecraft adaptation, From Beyond. Rob looks back at a great, goo-filled 80s horror…

There's been some discussion that some of weird fiction writer Hp Lovecraft’s more grand ideas would not translate that well onto film or television. That the bizarre horrors that lurk in the dark corners of his universe are better implied or hinted at rather than slapped onto the screen with CGI.

While I, along with other fans, still wonder what Guillermo del Toro’s take on At The Mountains Of Madness might have been like, these ideas need a budget of millions – the grandeur of Cthulhu rising from the ancient city of R'lyeh, which fans have held in their imaginations since the 1930s, would be expensive to replicate. But there are still many Lovecraft myths that would be much cheaper to adapt.

And this is where Stuart Gordon comes in. »

'The Theatre Bizarre' Review

30 January 2012 5:08 PM, PST | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

by Colleen Wanglund, MoreHorror.com

While I’ve seen more than a few indie horror anthologies of late—some good, others forgettable—the anthology film seems to be making a comeback.  Like the classic George Romero/Stephen King Creepshow (1982) and the impending The ABCs Of Death due out later this year, The Theatre Bizarre (2011) is one of those films that lives up to its buzz….and fans’ expectations.  Six shorts linked by framing scenes make up The Theatre Bizarre, a film being distributed by Severin Films. 

The film’s opening and framing segments, directed by Jeremy Kasten (Wizard Of Gore {2007}) titled “Theatre Guignol” star the wonderfully bizarre Udo Kier as a life-size marionette and story teller in an abandoned theater.  Virginia Newcomb plays a young woman obsessed with the old theater, who sneaks into it one fateful night to hear the strange stories.  Throughout the segments are a cast of weird, »
