My Movie Diary (2000-2009)

28 December 2009 6:58 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I can’t remember why, I’ve slept since then, but, in January of 2000, I found myself sitting in front of a blank Word document.  I had an idea in my head of what I wanted to do, and, now, 10 years later, I’m still working strong at it.  I began keeping a sort of diary, listing the days and months and putting down the films I saw in the theater into it.  I don’t remember why I only included movies I saw in the theater.  I could have started just as an idea-giver on how many movies I actually saw each year (I also kept a running count each year).  It began on January 7th, 2000, when I entered Bicentennial Man as my first film in this long and ever-growing endeavor.

In 2000, I saw 166 films in the theater.  There were many a high (seeing Gladiator on May 5th and »

The Foywonder's Ten Worst Horror Films of the Decade

23 December 2009 8:31 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The first decade of the new millennium has come to an end, and that means it is now time for film sites all over the web to begin posting their various retrospectives and lists recalling the decade that was. I generally as a rule dislike such lists because they are always so subjective. Then I said screw it and took it upon myself to do one of my own naming the ten worst horror movies of the past decade. Besides, people love bitching on the Internet about lists like this, and who am I to deny readers yet another excuse to get into pointless flame wars over personal opinions.

Of course, this list is just my personal opinion which is not legally binding ... unless Proposition 304 passes. And we all pray that it will.

I set two rules when putting this list together: Only horror movies that received fairly wide theatrical »

Tuesday Top Ten: Bite Me!

27 October 2009 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It's Halloween Week! Though a horror movie wuss I be there's one movie monster who I'll always give it up for, the vampire. Herewith: the film & television vampires who I would find most difficult to resist. (I've restricted myself to the past 30 years because there are too many I haven't seen from earlier... like those Hammer Horror films Matt was just talking 'bout). Should these 10 suckers ever come knocking, I shan't be wearing a cross, turtleneck or smelling of garlic.

I've already discussed Seline in Underworld and that hot Mexican in From Dusk til Dawn so I'm skipping them here.

10 Dracula (Gerard Butler) in Dracula 2000 (2000)

There are abundant lists of "best/sexiest vamps" on the net, but most of them go off in directions I can't support [cough Twilight... must everything be about page views? They twinkle. In the sun. Ugh]. But The Daily Beast makes a good point in favor of Gerard Butler: Ceiling Sex.

Halloween 3D Gets Writer and Director

21 September 2009 11:05 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Bloody Disgusting received confirmation that Patrick Lussier, the My Bloody Valentine 3D director and editor of numerous Wes Craven films has officially signed on to direct Halloween 3D.  You can exhale now.  Lussier’s former colleague Todd Farmer (who wrote My Bloody Valentine 3D) has signed on to pen the newest installment of the Halloween franchise.  So if you loved My Bloody Valentine 3D, chances are you’re all set for Halloween 3D (brought to you by Dimension Films).

To recap my earlier post on Halloween 3D, this will be the eleventh film in the horror franchise that has grossed more than $300Mm worldwide, was started under the direction of John Carpenter and most recently rebooted by Rob Zombie.  The franchise has largely (although not exclusively) followed psycho killer Michael Myers through his Halloween night killing sprees.

 

Farmer knows his way around a scary-movie script, having written Jason X, The Messengers (the story for it, »

Plummer, Dourif Calling for 'Priest'

21 September 2009 1:20 AM, PDT | CinemaSpy | See recent CinemaSpy news »

If the trailer for the upcoming Legion proved anything, it’s that director Scott Stewart has a good eye for casting. Now comes news about his follow-up, an adaptation of the Tokyopop graphic novel "Priest"; it appears two more actors have just signed on, and both are solid character players.

According to a tweet attributed to Stewart, Christopher Plummer and Brad Dourif have joined the cast of Priest, which revolves around humanity’s battle against 12 fallen angels. Plummer has been a Hollywood veteran for over 50 years, but has also appeared in such genre fare as Dracula 2000, and most recently lent his voice to the Disney/Pixar animated feature Up.

The same could be said of Dourif, who earned an Oscar nomination for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest in 1975, but is also recognizable for small, but memorable roles in Halloween (the Rob Zombie one) and The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. »

Plummer & Dourif Now Aboard Priest

18 September 2009 | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

In addition to last night's news that Mädchen Amick had joined the cast of director Scott Stewart's Priest , Stewart announced via Twitter that genre vets Christopher Plummer and Brad Dourif ( Halloween II are part of the cast as well! Plummer is no stranger to the vampire genre having played Van Helsing in Dracula 2000 . Opening in theaters on August 13, 2010, Priest is set in a world ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampire. It follows a warrior priest (Paul Bettany) who turns against the church to track down a murderous band of vampires who have kidnapped his niece. Cam Gigandet, Maggie Q, Karl Urban, Stephen Moyer and Lily Collins co-star. »

Halloween 3D Gets My Bloody Valentine 3D Director

8 September 2009 8:24 PM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Ever since the third installment in the rebooted horror franchise centering around the silent murderer Michael Myers (that of course being Halloween) was announced [1], there have been rumors [2] about who would direct the movie seeing as Rob Zombie wouldn't return for a third round. So who will fill the hairy shock rockers shoes? Another hack, of course! Zombie's replacement will be frequent Wes Craven editor and My Bloody Valentine 3D director Patrick Lussier, who aside from directing that horrible remake also has directed the equally bad Dracula 2000 plus its two DVD sequels, Dracula II: Ascension and Dracula III: Legacy. So with Lussier behind the wheel on this accident waiting to happen, what little faith I had in this project after hearing that Zombie was not going to go near it, has now vanished. But heck, who am I kidding, come next summer I'll probably end up watching this anyways hoping for a good laugh, »

Children of the Corn Gets Remade Again, and Halloween 3D Moves on Without Zombie

8 September 2009 8:19 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

By now you already know that the Weinstein Company have announced that a third entry in their rebooted “Halloween” franchise will be hitting screens as soon as next Summer without the first two movie’s writer/director, Rob Zombie, but with the added glamour of 3D. Cause, you know, everyone’s doing it, so why not? So the question is, who will replace Zombie, and soon? According to Variety, the Weinstein Company head honchos are currently in talks with “My Bloody Valentine 3D” director Patrick Lussier (the “Dracula 2000″ franchise) to take over the reins. Lussier is one busy man, as he’s already attached to drive Nicolas Cage around in another 3D adventure, “Drive Angry”. Meanwhile, the Weinstein Company is also buy setting up another rebooted franchise. They’ve assigned writer Ehren Kruger (one of the gazillion writers on “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”) to adapt yet another version »

Next 'Halloween' Has its Writer/Director

7 September 2009 9:15 PM, PDT | CinemaSpy | See recent CinemaSpy news »

Horror flick editor Patrick Lussier will be the next Halloween director, taking the reins of the franchise from Rob Zombie, whose Halloween II underperformed at the box office.

Dimension FilmsBob Weinstein had been negotiating with Lussier to write and direct. Now Fangoria is reporting that the former Scream editor, who was also responsible for the Dracula 2000 series of movies and this year’s My Bloody Valentine, will be delivering Michael Myers’ next set of exploits for a summer 2010 release.

Lussier also served as visual consultant on The Eye remake starring Jessica Alba and Darkness Falls.

Slasher movie veteran Steve Miner had been rumored as in the running for the 2010 Halloween sequel, to be titled Halloween 3-D. But the hiring of Lussier makes sense, given that My Bloody Valentine, which performed solidly at the box office, was also released in 3-D.

Nicolas Cage will Drive Angry

31 August 2009 2:48 AM, PDT | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

Nicolas Cage will be making his first 3-D movie and he's really, really angry about it. The man will play the main character in Drive Angry, a thriller with grindhouse story elements to its storyline.

In the film Cage will play a father who just saw his daughter killed and her baby kidnapped by the movie's villains. For whatever reason it's up to only Cage's character to pursue the bad guys as they speed down a highway, trying to elude their pursuer who is now in a white hot rage to deliver revenge upon them. As the chase intensifies there apparently will be lots of bloody collateral damage as other motorists get caught up in the mayhem and vehicles crash out of control. With a plotline like that it I certainly hope that the filmmakers go all-out and just embrace the crazyness of the concept, and c'mon, if you've seen »

Ryuhei Kitamura Returns to Horror with Teratoma

16 July 2009 10:54 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Ryuhei Kitamura isn’t going to let the awful experience of “Midnight Meat Train” stop him from trying to conquer the American horror scene, it would appear, because he’s just signed on to direct a new horror flick called “Teratoma” for the boys at Jaz Films and Neo Art & Logic. The latter company is run by Joel Soisson, the prolific producer/director of direct-to-dvd horror sequels to borderline successful franchises “Dracula 2000″, “Feast”, and “Pulse”, among many others. Soisson calls the film: “Teratoma is The Fly meets Rosemary’s Baby.” Styd says Kitamura, most famous to Western audiences for his cult zombie-Samurai-splatter action flick “Versus”, will be directing from a script by Jim Agnew and Sean Keller. The duo’s previous credits include Dario Argento’s “Giallo” and a pass on John Carpenter’s upcoming return to horror, “The Ward”. Teratoma is a kind of tumor, and if you google it, »

Patrick Lussier Talks Fourth 'Dracula' Film

10 June 2009 1:10 AM, PDT | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

A fun little "what if" hit the web courtesy of the good folks at Moviehole.net who chatted with director Patrick Lussier about a planned fourth Dracula film that never came to be. Before directing My Bloody Valentine 3D, Lussier got behind the camera for Dimension Films' Dracula 2000, Dracula II: Ascension and Dracula III: Legacy. Read on for the short blurb. "Joel Soisson and I originally wanted to continue the adventures of Uffizi... and before that, had even discussed a theatrical sequel to D2K but none of those came to pass, I'm afraid," he tells Moviehole.net. But if you want to know what happened next... The Cardinal picks up Luke, forces him back into Transylvania to find Uffizi... only they find Julia, now mistress of the vampire horde. Uffizi's bugged out on his own quest. Mayhem, of course, would've ensued. »

Exclusive: Talking horror with David Draiman of Disturbed

21 May 2009 2:44 PM, PDT | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

Currently on the road in the midst of the fourth Music As A Weapon Tour, David Draiman, frontman of Chicago's Disturbed, recently sat down with Fangoria Musick prior to a show to discuss music, film, and the horrors of real life and beyond.

James Zahn (Fangoria): When people hear the band Disturbed, I don’t think they necessarily associate you with the horror genre, but your latest album Indestructible is pretty dark in terms of subject matter, primarily with real-life horror…

David Draiman: There’s no doubt about that.

Fangoria: Your latest video for The Night has been released, and it seems to present “the night” as a kind of “creature”...

Draiman: Well, [Jason] Noble (director) presented us with a treatment for it that definitely fit the idea that we had for the song, which was the the night was it’s own kind of entity and it sort of takes you over, »
