New Photo from Rob Zombie’s Halloween-Set Horror Film ‘31’

23 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With Rob Zombie's upcoming film 31 taking place in a setting known as "Murder World", you can expect to find plenty of malevolent monsters (of the human variety) around every corner, but not every character is evil at heart. Zombie's newest photo from his next film features what the writer/director calls "the good guys from 31", characters played by Meg Foster, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Sheri Moon Zombie, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, and Kevin Jackson.

Zombie's 31 was recently acquired for North American distribution by Alchemy. No release date has been revealed at this time, but stay tuned to Daily Dead for further updates on Zombie's latest film.

"Welcome to my next film. It is called 31. It is the story of five random people kidnapped on the five days leading up to Halloween and held hostage in a place called Murder World. While trapped inside this man-made Hell they must fight to survive playing »

The Hundred Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window And Disappeared Review

4 May 2015 10:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Hundred Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared was first described to me as “a European Forrest Gump with lots of explosions,” and I was sold! After watching it, I’m pleased to report that this description is dead on. Adapted by director Felix Herngren from Jonas Jonasson’s bestselling book of the same name, The 100 Year Old Man is a loose-limbed, historically sprawling shaggy dog of a movie. Enjoyment is predicated on your acceptance of the ridiculous and, most importantly, of you being able to appreciate the sight of a terrified skinhead being squashed to death by an elephant’s butt.

We open with the titular 100-year-old Allan Karlsson (Robert Gustafsson) mourning the death of his beloved cat at the hands of a fox. Clutching a stick of dynamite in his withered hand, he shuffles through the snow and plants it in the ground. Boom. No more fox. »

New Look at Rob Zombie’s Halloween-Set Horror Film ‘31’

1 May 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With Rob Zombie's upcoming film 31 taking place in a setting known as "Murder World", you can expect to find plenty of malevolent monsters (of the human variety) around every corner, as evidenced in the latest still from the film, which shows someone who looks like they came from Dr. Frankenstein's lab.

Revealed by Bloody Disgusting, the new still from Rob Zombie's 31 features a very memorable member of the Murder World proceedings. Though the official cast member and character in the still haven't been announced, there are physical similarities between this character and Richard Brake's Doom-Head, who was revealed in a shadow-shrouded still in March, so they very well could be one and the same.

Zombie's 31 was recently acquired for North American distribution by Alchemy. No release date has been revealed at this time, but stay tuned to Daily Dead for further updates on Zombie's latest film. »

Inherent Vice Blu-ray Review

1 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson’s adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s Inherent Vice came and went theatrically. Much like Spike Jonze’s Her, it seems an expensive arthouse film that didn’t connect with the public, though both were nominated for Screenplay Oscars. Vice made $8 million, while Anderson’s last film The Master only made twice as much. The filmmaker hasn’t ever scored a big hit (his biggest success was There Will Be Blood, which made $40 Million), and that’s a little sad because he’s one of the greatest filmmakers working today. This noted, Vice is destined to live on as a cult favorite. It’s too drugged out not to eventually find an audience, though its resemblances to films like The Big Lebowski and The Long Goodbye are mostly superficial. Joaquin Phoenix stars as Larry ‘Doc’ Sportello, who works as a sort of private investigator, and the »

Why 1998 Was the Best Year In Film History

27 April 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Check here for a complete list of our essays. Just one glance at the Oscar nominees for 1998 might make it seem less a questionable choice for “best year in film” — and more an insane one.   Instead of a 1974 – The Godfather II, The Conversation, Chinatown, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, etc – or even a 1994, where Shawshank, Quiz Show, and Pulp Fiction lost to Gump – you choose a year where the Oscars would allow Roberto Benigni to climb atop both the figurative and literal chairs of the Shrine?   Fine, step away from the Oscars. Would you still celebrate a year that saw not one, but two movies about asteroids threatening the Earth?  A year that saw such scars carved across cinematic history as Patch Adams, My Giant, Stepmom, and Krippendorf’s Tribe?   It bears repeating: Krippendorf’S Tribe? »

Rob Zombie Reveals Two More Photos from 31

24 April 2015 2:45 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Two eerie scarecrow creations make for an unsettling atmosphere in one of two new photos from Rob Zombie's 31. Currently in the editing stage, Zombie's latest Halloween-set horror film will feature eclectic, creepy characters aplenty, including Sick-Head, Doom-Head, Sister Serpent, Father Murder and more.

"Welcome to my next film. It is called 31. It is the story of five random people kidnapped on the five days leading up to Halloween and held hostage in a place called Murder World. While trapped inside this man-made Hell they must fight to survive playing the most violent game known to man... a game called 31.

31 has no rules. 31 has no boundaries. It is ever so simple. Do whatever you can do to kill your opponent before they kill you. Keep this up for 12 hours and freedom is yours.

Who are the opponents? Well... a group of vile, filthy, blood-thirsty clowns known as The Heads. »

New Photo from Rob Zombie’s 31

14 April 2015 9:35 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Sister Dragon, Doom-Head, Father Murder, Lucky Leo—these are the names of just a handful of the bizarre, intriguing characters inhabiting Rob Zombie’s 31, which wraps filming shortly and is on the verge of entering the editing stage. To hold horror hounds over until more looks at his creatively conjured nightmare are revealed, Zombie recently unveiled a new photo from 31, showing Tracey Walter having a good time playing Lucky Leo.

In addition to Walter as Lucky Leo and Malcolm McDowell as Father Murder, the "owner of Murder World", 31 comprises the following eclectic cast:

Pancho Moler (2005's Bad News Bears, American Horror Story: Freak Show) plays Sick-Head. Jeff Daniel Phillips (The Lords of Salem, Halloween 2) portrays Roscoe, "the ass-kicking carney mechanic of Venus Virgo’s traveling show." Jane Carr (Curb Your Enthusiasm, How I Met Your Mother) plays Sister Serpent, "a wicked cross of Satan meets Mother Goose. »

Watch: 10-Minute Video Essay Explores The Film Noir Roots Of 'The Big Lebowski'

3 April 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You may find it hard to believe, but “The Big Lebowski” premiered in theaters over 17 years ago. Where did all the time go? Well, within that timeframe, “The Big Lebowski” has gone from being viewed as an innocuous change-of-pace in the Coen Brothers’ filmography to obtaining cult status, and now, it would not seem out of place to consider it a modern-day classic. Its reputation has grown so much over the years because of how well it lends itself to repeat viewings and critical film analysis. Case in point: Roger Ebert gave the film a 3-star rating when it came out in 1998. Twelve years later, he added the film to his “Great Movies” list. At this point, you would think not much more could be added to the conversation when it comes to this movie. Nevertheless, CineFix has decided to throw their hat into the ring with a video analysis of their own. »

Rob Zombie’s 31 Acquired for North American Distribution

2 April 2015 10:06 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We're one big step closer to entering Murder World, the main setting of Rob Zombie's upcoming horror film, 31, as the North American rights have been picked up for the Halloween-set movie in which five kidnapped people fight against the likes of Doom-Head, Death-Head, and many more demented denizens of a place that even the bravest of trick-or-treaters likely wouldn't visit.

According to Indiewire, Alchemy (formerly known as Millennium Entertainment), has acquired the North American rights for Rob Zombie's 31, which has been filming with the following impressive, eclectic cast in front of the camera:

Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, 2007's Halloween) as Father Murder, "the owner of Murder World." Tracy Walter (Repo Man, The Silence of the Lambs) as Lucky Leo.

Box Office Predictions: 'Divergent's 'Insurgent' Will Take Down Penn's 'Gunman' with Ease

19 March 2015 8:58 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Divergent Series: Insurgent will outperform the original film, even though that one was terrible. I liked this a lot more, so it should be a lively podcast on Friday as Brad gets mad. I'm going with $18k per theater, $68.4 million, or about a 30 percent jump. That's aggressive, but slotting this against the Ncaa Tournament was pure genius. The Gunman looks D.O.A., even more so than Run All Night. The trailers could not look any worse, Sean Penn creeping around in the shadows with a gun. I'm putting it at $8.4 million, but even that might be kind. Like that scene in The Big Lebowski, there's just no bottom here. Do You Believec Not really, no. Well, okay, I believe in the sense that with only 1,300 theaters it's punching well above its weight. As per normal, these religious titles are basically impossible to predict as they rely on actual human marketing. »

Longmire Season Three Blu-Ray Review

19 March 2015 7:55 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Longmire is an absolute anomaly in the world of television, which could have something to do with the fact that it was pulled from A&E, despite consistently high ratings for the network. It’s also the reason that it was something of a no-brainer that it would be picked up by someone else, and season four will air on Netflix later in the year.

Where the first two seasons pulled us slowly into the depths of Sheriff Walt Longmire’s life on the sprawling plains of Wyoming, the third season is like the hammer blow that follows the slow, methodical wind-up.

The second season ended by bringing a lot of forces to the fore in a move of plot construction that brilliantly weaves angles and conspiracies into a show that actually makes it difficult to look away. The third season spins this all together, but uses a mode of »

Malcolm McDowell Joins Rob Zombie’s 31

11 March 2015 12:51 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Halloween may be over seven months away, but on the set of Rob Zombie's 31, the autumnal season is in full force and trick-or-treaters could pop up at any minute. Filming began yesterday on 31, Rob Zombie's Halloween-set horror film that takes place on the horror-soaked holiday at a place called Murder World. In recent weeks several key cast members have been added to the fright film and yesterday another big-name addition was announced: Malcolm McDowell.

In addition to playing Dr. Samuel Loomis in Rob Zombie's Halloweeen (2007) and Halloween II (2009), McDowell has played memorable characters aplenty in his legendary career and is perhaps best known for playing Alex in Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange. Now he'll add the character of Father Murder to his résumé. Announced by Zombie on his Facebook page, Father Murder is the "owner of Murder World", the sinister setting of the film where five kidnapped »

Longmire Season 3 Now on DIsc

7 March 2015 10:04 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The wonderfully underrated Longmire completed its third season last year and was then canceled by A&E for reasons beyond understanding. After some protracted negotiations amidst a fury of wronged fans taking to social media to save the series, Netflix announced they have picked up the series for a fourth season to air later this year.

Burbank, CA (February 23, 2015) – The stunning skies of Wyoming, and the mysteries beneath them, have never been more enthralling than in the unfolding episodes of Longmire, the popular A&E-turned-Netflix television series.  Those cinematic visuals and intense situations have also never looked better than in the full 1080p HD presentation of Warner Archive Collection’s Blu-ray™ release of Longmire, Season 3, available now via your favorite online retailers.

Warner Archive Collection’s release of Longmire, Season 3 on Blu-ray™ includes all 10 episodes in a three-disc set, as well a documentary entitled “The Ghost in the Storm,” which »

Top 5 Oscars highlights: Julianne Moore finally won, power of 'Glory,' ...

23 February 2015 12:11 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

It’s been a long, crazy ride. That seems to be a sentiment echoed every year as the Oscar season comes to a close, having seen so many contenders become pretenders, front-runners changing with the announcement of every new precursor, and records kept or broken. It’s hard to put into words just what this year truly meant, and only time will tell if the academy’s choices really were the right ones, but for now, here are some of the things that stuck out as highlights: -Break- 1. Julianne Moore has an Oscar … at last! “Far from Heaven.” “Boogie Nights.” “The Hours.” “The End of the Affair.” Those are just the films for which Julianne Moore lost at the Oscars. There’s also “Safe,” “Magnolia,” “Short Cuts,” “The Kids Are All Right,” “The Big Lebowski,” “Children of Men,” and any number of great performances she wasn’t »
