Review: Burying The Ex

20 June 2015 6:10 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

There’s a regular opinion of popular filmmakers hitting their peak and not being able to make good films after said peak. Masters of horror such as Carpenter, Argento and Hooper are quite often thrown into those false statements because of a film here or there (sometimes more than one), and as fan of those filmmakers, it’s somewhat of an irritating thing to hear. After Gremlins/The Howling director Joe Dante gave audiences the family friendly film The Hole, those who were once Dante fanatics seemed to be throwing him into that awful opinion, not having realized that The Hole was pretty much a kids’ horror film. Proving the naysayers completely wrong with the zombie horror/comedy Burying The Ex, Dante returns with a fresh and rejuvenated approach, and a film that not only pay homage to the days of E.C. Comics, but to horror fans and Los Angeles as well. »

‘Can’t Come Out to Play’ DVD Review

20 June 2015 12:25 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Michael Shannon, Samantha Morton, Peter Fonda, Natasha Calis, Charlie Tahan, Peter Fonda, Leslie Lyles | Written by Stephen Lancellotti | Directed by John McNaughton

 

John McNaughton, enfante-terrible of the BBFC thanks to his stunning 1986 debut feature Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, returns to genre film making after two decades away from horror (his Masters of Horror episode in 2006 is his only “horror” credit in 25 years), with Can’t Come Out to Play, a psychological thriller starring Britain’s very own Samantha Morton and everyone’s favourite Superman villain, Michael Shannon, who play married medical professionals Katharine and Richard Young who keep their sick son Andy isolated from the outside world in their remote countryside house.

However that isolation is broken when Maryann, following the death of her parents, moves in with her grandparents just down the road. Having left all she knows behind and feeling alone, she eventually befriends Andy »

A Naked Space Vampire in London: Tobe Hooper’s Lifeforce at 30

19 June 2015 3:56 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It has taken nearly 30 years, but it seems that Tobe Hooper’s 1985 sci-fi horror epic, Lifeforce, is finally earning the respect it deserves.

Lifeforce is the movie that pretty much killed Tobe Hooper's mainstream directing career. The first of his three-movie deal with the great Cannon Films, the film recouped less than half of its $25 million budget (which, for Cannon, might as well be Avatar money) upon its theatrical release and made Hooper something of a laughingstock in the process. Maybe because his previous movie, Poltergeist, had been so commercial (which has more to do with Spielberg’s influence than Hooper's), a lot of the audience for Lifeforce assumed Hooper didn't know what he was doing — they concluded that the movie just got away from him. Nope. Tobe Hooper knew exactly the movie he was making. Lifeforce is a crazy movie. It was designed as a crazy movie. It »

Movie Review: Horror-Comedy Burying the Ex Is Thin But Lots of Fun Anyway

19 June 2015 1:40 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It’s a sign of the unhealthiness of mainstream Hollywood — and the corporate theme-park audience it has cultivated — that a good exploitation director like Joe Dante doesn’t have the wherewithal to make a movie a year. It’s true that his work has a wide countercultural streak, which is why highbrow-lowbrows like me love him. In The Howling, his segment of Twilight Zone: The Movie, Neighbors, Gremlins 2Small SoldiersLooney Tunes: Back in Action, and the "Homecoming" episode of Masters of Horror, he proves that genre parody can also be the basis for potent, subversive satire. But you can enjoy his movies on dumber levels, too. What he lacks is a talent for middlebrow faux-seriousness — the kind you get in “dark” superhero pictures and “family values” monster flicks like Jurassic World. He’s not enough of a bullshit artist.Dante’s newest movie, Burying the Ex, doesn’t make the leap to satire. »

25 Years In La Part 4: 'Masters Of Horror,' Revolution, and getting Foxed

18 June 2015 1:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Like all superheroes (or anyone else who uses a secret identity), there came a moment when someone finally cracked the code and published my real name. To be fair, my identity was a pretty poorly-kept secret by that point. The first time I went to an actual press event, I used my real name, and anytime I met someone, I used my real name. "Moriarty" was a fun identity to slip into, and especially in the early days of the site, we played up the mythology of things. My friends all got their own spy names and would show up in the reports in the form of Henchman Mongo and Segue Zagnut and Harry Lime and more. From my end, it was silly and fun, and not something to be taken seriously. But when Film Threat ran a fairly vicious hit piece on Harry, I was also a target, and »

25 Years in La Part 3: Showtime, the Silverado, and the rise of Ain't It Cool

10 June 2015 11:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The first and most important thing that happened as a result of the staging of "Sticks and Stones" at the Met Theater as part of the Act One Festival was that Scott Swan and I got our first agent. Barbara Baruch worked for Ambrosio/Mortimer, a smaller boutique agency at the time, and from the moment we met her, she seemed like what I imagined an agent to be. She was nurturing, she was a cheerleader, she was a ballbuster, and she was always, always, always in our corner. Our time with her was unfortunately too short, and by the time the agency imploded in accusations of embezzlement, we were already repped by Gersh out of New York. Barbara was first, though, and she was the first one to start pushing people to come see our show and to read our work. The strangest thing about those early days is »

William Malone, he of House on Haunted Hill 1999, Parasomnia, Masters of Horror and Creature is an idiosyncratic voice in horror.

What movie, TV show or music did your parents ban from you as a kid?

25 March 2015 1:51 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Raunchy comedies. Scary movies. Songs with explicit lyrics. Space, the final frontier. When we're kids, we're frequently banned from checking out films, TV, music or other entertainment before we're "ready." Whatever that means. At HitFix, we discovered there's a range of what was banned in our households when we were children. Some folks like lucky-duck Gregory Ellwood had no bans at all. Some bans didn't hold. Some bans were so intense, they blanketed all corners of media. Below are some of our staffers sounding off on what wasn't allowed in their household. Share with us in the comments what stuff you couldn't watch or hear. Chris Eggertsen - "Married...With Children" "Married...With Children" was like the Devil in our house, and here's the kicker: I'm almost positive my mother never watched it before banning it. It was enough that a random Christian woman living halfway across the country whom »
