If you’ve been a long time reader of Blogomatic3000 (now, of course Nerdly) you’ll know how huge a fan I am of director Pearry Teo. He has helmed some fantastic straight to DVD movies – some of which put big-budget cinema flicks to shame – including the awesome Necromentia, Witchville and Dead Inside (aka The Evil Inside).
His latest film, The Dark Prince, is another take on the Dracula legend which stars Brit actor Luke Roberts as the titular character and Jon Voight as Van Helsing. The film, which was lensed in Romania, is currently at the Cannes Film Market and director Teo has revealed the films poster on his Facebook page (which if you’ve any interest in low-budget filmmaking you really should be following).

He’s especially interested in the new technology of electricity, which promises to brighten the night – useful for someone who avoids the sun. But he has another reason for his travels: he hopes to take revenge on those who cursed him with immortality centuries earlier. Everything seems to be going according to plan… »

This week, Ryder adds a new genre to her expansive filmography with a role in the true crime biography The Iceman, opens in limited release May 17th.
Ryder stars as Deborah Pellicotti, the wife of notorious contract killer Richard Kuklinski (Michael Shannon). The movie, based on actual events, follows Kuklinski as he climbs his way up to criminal ladder becoming the mob’s fierce go-to hitman, all while keeping his occupation hidden from his wife and children.

Throughout the year, Thn will look at 53 Walt Disney Animated Classics, from Snow White to Wreck-it Ralph, through the obscurity of Fun And Fancy Free to the second Golden Age of Beauty And The Beast. These are the films the Walt Disney company are most proud of, the ones that hold a special place in our hearts, the ones that still cost a fortune to buy on DVD.
In the second part of this week’s double hitter, we look for some bear necessities with The Jungle Book.
Directed by Wolfgang Reitherman
1967/ 78 minutes
The Jungle Book marked a return of sorts for Walt Disney; after only being partially involved in One Hundred And One Dalmatians and The Sword In The Stone, the latter’s disappointing performance led Disney to take a more active role in the film’s story. He threw out storyman Bill Peet’s original script, which closely »

About two years ago, an adaptation of Odd Thomas started filming and we haven’t heard much since, aside from some legal battles between parties involved in financing the film. A sales trailer has now been released and it gives us a pretty good idea of what to expect from the movie.
“The story centers on a short-order cook named Odd Thomas (Anton Yelchin) who can commune with the dead, a secret only his girlfriend (Addison Timlin) and the local police (Willem Dafoe) chief know. The young man can also spot malevolent forces called bodachs, who feed on pain and portent imminent death. When Odd sees them in spades surrounding a stranger, he finds himself in a race against time to avert a catastrophe.”

The first trailer for director Stephen Sommers’ adaptation of the Dean Koontz novel Odd Thomas has made its way online. The story centers on a short-order cook who can commune with the dead, with Anton Yelchin starring as the titular character. It’s a uniquely “small” film for Sommers following the director’s previous tentpoles like Van Helsing, The Mummy, and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, but he appears to be delving in similar territory as the more supernatural aspects of Odd Thomas are grounded by a healthy dose of humor and charisma from Yelchin. The pic looks to strike a vibe similar to Men in Black or Beetlejuice, and it’s a bit too early to tell if it succeeds or not, but Yelchin’s starring turn sure is promising. Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Willem Dafoe, Addison Timlin, Nico Tortorella, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, »

Here's some heart-wrenching news for fans of classic Hammer horror films. Turns out the owner of Bray Studios, where the iconic studio filmed many of its most classic films, is looking to turn this once mecca of horror into luxury homes.
According to the UK's Daily Mail, the owner of Bray Studios in Berkshire, Neville Hendricks, says the iconic location is no longer viable for movie-making – and that he wants to put up to seven executive homes on the site.
But the plan has infuriated big names in the movie business, including Terry Gilliam, director of The Fisher King, and Richard O’Brien, composer and star of The Rocky Horror Picture Show – who are backing a campaign to save the studios. Protesters have set up a Save Bray Studios Facebook page and started an online petition. They claim that the studios are struggling only because show business agent Hendricks, who owns the site near Windsor, »

The 1970’s were the end of an era for the beloved Hammer Studios, to the chagrin of a legion of fans the world over. Gothic castles and the supernatural in horror films were slowly giving way to more realistic horrors with the introduction of films like Psycho, Blood and Black Lace, and Rosemary’s Baby.
The Vampire Lovers came near the end of the line for Hammer Studios, yet the film was a success, proving that the old formula still had some strength in the ever-changing culture. Somewhat hampered by a hopelessly old fashioned script, the film manages to stay current with its lesbian overtones, that even today would be titillating in certain circles.
Ingrid Pitt stars as the age old temptress Carmilla Karnstein, whom along with her family, the Karnsteins, have torn a path of destruction through Europe murdering wealthy families for generations. Over the course of Carmilla’s hunt, »
