Monday Discussion: When Did You First Experience Cinematic Horror?

14 April 2014 10:28 AM, PDT | | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Funny how memories work. For the longest time, when someone asked, "What got you into horror?" I'll always speak of the time I first sifted through the pages of Stephen King's "Cycle of the Werewolf" when it was first published in '83 and becoming mesmerized by Berni Wrightson's graphic, atmospheric werewolf attack illustrations. But my first brush with the macabre, and something rather grisly - I should add, came much a goddamn Disney movie. Netflix dropped a ton of titles on Instant earlier this month and one of the films I was eager to add to my queue and jump into was 1981's Dragonslayer by Matthew Robbins, who not only directed The Legend of Billy Jean, another favorite of mine, and *batteries not included, but has become a frequent Guillermo del Toro collaborator (Mimic, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, Crimson Peak) as well.

Final cut tussles between directors and studios

Odd List Ryan Lambie 4 Feb 2014 - 06:48

We head back to the 80s and 90s to look at eight famous battles between directors and studio executives over a movie's final cut...

If filmmaking is a compromise between art and commerce, then the final cut is often the point in the process where the tug-of-war between the two becomes the most intense. In their desire to make a film more profitable - often after feedback from preview screenings - studio executives will sometimes request re-edits or the shooting of additional scenes. And occasionally, when directors attempt to resist those changes for whatever reason, the resulting tension between director and studio can reach breaking point.

To illustrate the different ways these tussles over a film's final cut can play out, we're heading back to the 80s and 90s. In some instances, the films that emerged from the editing room were considered to be influential triumphs. »

Miramax Ramping Up Production, Taps Zanne Devine

14 January 2014 9:07 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Miramax has hired veteran producer and executive Zanne Devine as executive VP of production and development, signaling an expansion for the company.

The move comes a month after Miramax signed a 20-year deal with Harvey and Bob Weinstein for co-production and co-distribution of movies, TV and stage for titles in the Miramax library such as “Shakespeare in Love,” “Swingers” and “Good Will Hunting.”

Devine reports to Miramax Chairman Thomas J. Barrack, Jr., and Miramax CEO Steve Schoch. She will lead content acquisition, production and development for Miramax, overseeing both film and television.

Devine has been working with Miramax for past three years as a producer and strategic advisor on Martin Scorsese’s “Gangs of New York” TV series; Robert Rodriguez’s “From Dusk Till Dawn” TV series, currently in production; “The Ninth Life of Louis Drax” written by Max Minghella; “Mimic” from writer John Shiban and “The Prophecy” with writer and director Gregory Widen. »
