It Came From The Tube: Devil Dog: The Hound Of Hell (1978)

11 June 2017 12:07 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Thanks to The Omen (1976) and little Damien’s watchdog, Hollywood figured they could mine some horror from our canine friends, on the assumption that there’s something inherently evil to exploit. Except…they’re not. Are they sometimes vicious? Definitely. But I would hardly call dogs evil, especially ones allegedly in favor with Satan. Which brings us to todays’ Tube, as TV naturally had to take a shot at demonizing our four legged friends, a task at which Devil Dog: The Hound of Hell (1978) fails spectacularly. It is however, a blast and more fun than a bowl full of kibble.

Originally airing on Halloween night of 1978 on CBS, Devil Dog was up against Linda Blair and her demonic cousin in Summer of Fear over on NBC, a true dilemma for horror fans as both satisfy in different ways. But since I’ve already covered that Wes Craven helmed Ya adaptation »

5 June 2017 10:31 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Born on Halloween night (in the Us, although it was already November 1st in Yugoslavia), actor Massimo Dobrovic has shared a link with the horror genre since his birth, and he's strengthened that connection over the years with memorable roles in a wide range of films and TV series. After stepping into the world of vampires in Nocturna, Massimo turns his attention to zombies with key roles in two upcoming TV series, Age of the Living Dead and Feel the Dead. For our latest Q&A feature, we caught up with Massimo to discuss both series, as well as working with Brendan Fraser on Behind the Curtain of Night, his new cookbook, and much more.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Massimo. You’ve acted in a lot of projects in recent years, including several in the horror genre. What do you enjoy the most »

‘Ghostwatch’ Scared So Many People That BBC Only Aired It Once — 25 Years Later, You Can Finally Watch It Again

21 April 2017 5:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

You don’t have to believe in ghosts to believe in “Ghostwatch.” BBC aired the infamous, ahead-of-its-time mockumentary on Halloween night, 1992, creating such an uproar with the program that it never made the airwaves again. Twenty-five years later, “Ghostwatch” can finally be seen again: As it did with “The Devils,” Ken Russell’s oft-censored, long-unavailable act of feature-length blasphemy, horror streaming platform Shudder has made the film available to stream.

Presented by the Beeb as a totally above-board enterprise, the 90-minute special purports to seek (and perhaps even offer) irrefutable proof that ghosts do in fact exist. The organizers do so by spending the night in a house that’s said to be haunted, with an entire team both in the studio and out in the field live; the coverage resembles that of a high-profile footie match. Well-known presenters play themselves in the production, which only makes it more understandable »

Newswire: Infamous BBC Halloween stunt Ghostwatch manifests on Shudder

18 April 2017 11:18 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Next to Orson Welles’ 1938 radio play of The War Of The Worlds, The BBC’s presentation of Ghostwatch is probably one of the best-known media-induced panics in broadcasting history. (And possibly more effective, as historians have recently concluded that the bedlam surrounding Welles’ broadcast was exaggerated by contemporary newspapers eager to discredit their radio-news rivals.) On Halloween night of 1992, the BBC aired Ghostwatch, a 90-minute faux-investigative report purporting to show evidence of real paranormal activity in a London house featuring real news and kids’ show personalities. The whole thing was a stunt dreamed up by screenwriter Stephen Volk, but the people of Britain didn’t know that. Thinking they were seeing a real ghost really taking over the TV airwaves, people freaked the fuck out, leading to national panic, soiled underpants, and, more tragically, a suicide connected to the incident.

And Ghostwatch is remarkably terrifying, not least because ...

Faux Supernatural Documentary Ghostwatch (1992) Comes to Shudder

18 April 2017 7:25 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Officially streaming for the first time in the United States on Shudder is the infamous BBC faux documentary, Ghostwatch. For those not familiar with Ghostwatch, it was presented to viewers as part of a BBC anthology series called Screen One as a legitimate live investigation of the paranormal.

Press Release: Today, Shudder, the premium thriller, horror, and supernatural streaming service backed by AMC Networks, releases the BBC’s infamous faux-paranormal documentary Ghostwatch for the first time ever in the United States.

Produced as a part of the BBC anthology series Screen One, it was presented as a live television investigation of paranormal activity, not as a scripted TV movie. It was banned after the premiere because of disturbed viewers making an estimated 30,000 panicked calls to the BBC switchboard in a single hour. Ghostwatch was never re-aired on UK television, it never aired in the United States, and has never been »

It Came From The Tube: Summer Of Fear (1978)

9 April 2017 12:48 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Sometimes, TV horror is the perfect medium for a particular kind of story. Perhaps a story that doesn’t rely on effects or sensationalism to affect the viewer; a tale that works in a simple, straightforward way, dealing with all too common emotions experienced by the regular teenage mind. To wit, Summer of Fear (1978) Aka Stranger in Our House, a chiller directed by the late legend Wes Craven based on the bestselling Ya novel of the same name by Lois Duncan (I Know What You Did Last Summer). It’s a breezy thrill ride that also shows Craven could successfully work in the mainstream.

Originally airing Halloween night on NBC under the Stranger title as one of their The Big Event titles, its toughest competition was ABC’s Three’s Company/Taxi/Starsky and Hutch dynamo. But no worries, if you needed a horror fix on Halloween night, this is what you were watching. »

SXSW 2017 Review: Prevenge is a Fiercely Funny Exploration of Grief and the Horrors of Motherhood

11 March 2017 9:58 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Children these days are so selfish. While I can't really speak to the experience of being pregnant myself, I've vicariously lived through dozens of friends who have become mothers over the years, and the one thing I learned from all of them is that for nine months (technically ten), you have barely any control over what's going on with your own body, and for some women, that can be an intensely terrifying experience. It's those horrors, as well as the pain of grief, that Alice Lowe explores in Prevenge, in which the only way her character can cope with the loss of her boyfriend is to destroy those responsible for his untimely demise, all while being prodded on by the voice of her unborn child.

More than seven months pregnant herself, writer/director/lead actress Alice Lowe stars as Ruth, a bit of a misanthrope who is coping with a huge loss in her life, »

Drive-In Dust Offs: Halloween (1978)

4 March 2017 11:02 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It starts with the music, which rises as the screen fades from black to reveal the sinister orange glow of the credits and a leering jack o’ lantern. The rapid, staccato piano notes indicating an oppressive force at work; relentless and unforgiving. John Carpenter’s Halloween (1978) is about all of these sensations and more; concrete vibrations that have echoed through the halls of horror, resounding from time to time to remind audiences of its lasting influence and potency.

By now, most know the story of how Halloween came to be and the landmark it truly is. How producer Irwin Yablans approached Carpenter about doing a horror film after seeing his Assault on Precinct 13 (1976), and wanted it to revolve around babysitters; how the film was initially panned by major critics, and then re-evaluated once it started to become popular; how it ended up making over $70 million worldwide at the box office against a $325,000 budget, »

Paul Reiser Comments on His Character in Stranger Things 2

15 February 2017 9:31 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With Dr. Brenner's (played by the great Matthew Modine) fate unknown following the first season of Stranger Things, the Hawkins Laboratory has a big position that needs to be filled, and Paul Reiser's Dr. Owens intends to do just that in the second season of the Netflix series.

In a recent interview with EW, Reiser (Aliens, Red Oaks) discussed joining one of the most popular shows out there right now, and he also talked about the differences between Dr. Brenner and Dr. Owens:

"There’s a little more humanity. Modine’s character had very few lines so he was this looming, powerful presence. My guy is much more hands-on and sort of among his many degrees is that he has a bedside manner that Modine’s character did not have. I know coming into this what this community has gone through and my job is to try and walk them through their mistrust. »

The Duffer Brothers Comment on Potential Endgame of Stranger Things

13 February 2017 2:48 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Halloween is going to be extra special for many horror fans this year thanks to Netflix's season 2 release of Stranger Things, and if you're already wondering how many seasons the series could go after its sophomore stretch, a new interview on EW sheds some light on the subject.

According to EW, in a recent chat with Stranger Things co-creators Ross and Matt Duffer, they revealed that they could see their series running for "four or five seasons," and it doesn't sound like they'd leave it open for future sequels beyond the original series. Here's what Matt Duffer had to say:

"I want it to have a really finite ending. I don’t want it to be one of those shows that runs out of gas and they lose it because they’re losing interest."

Ross Duffer wants season 2 to feel like its own cinematic experience, and while a third season »

Stranger Things Season 2: First Plot Details Revealed!

9 February 2017 3:52 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

In this past weekend during the Super Bowl, TV lovers around the country got a taste of the next season of the Netflix original series Stranger Things in the form of a thirty second spot. We got images of our leads clad in Halloween Ghostbusters uniform (it is 1984, after all — and we’re expecting one kid to see “he slimed me” at some point) along with a ton of creepy imagery, with the closing shot of a spider-like creature silhouetted in the clouds and hovering over the city.

Fans, of course, ate the trailer all up. It was exactly what we wanted to see out of a Season 2 teaser. Though while it was big on images, it was sparse on actual plot details. Now, in a new report from EW, we have the first real solid details regarding what to expect from the second season of Stranger Things, and it comes courtesy of the creators, »

9 February 2017 10:30 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Stranger Things may not be coming back until Halloween, but a new image from the second season makes it feel like autumn (and trick-or-treating time) is in full swing.

Sundance 2017. Correspondences #2

29 January 2017 6:03 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Wind RiverDear Josh,After lulling us into a false sense of complacency with Friday’s clear skies, Utah apparently decided to give us a proper welcome with some real snow. So after a two-hour delay, crawling up the I-80 from Salt Lake City into Park City proper, past the occasional “Impeach” sign and hitchhikers on their way to the Women’s March, I was just grateful to have arrived (though a missed screening means word on Charlie McDowell’s intriguing sci-fi entry The Discovery will have to wait). Discoveries in general, though, are what Sundance is all about, positioned as it is at the beginning of the year, and featuring a host of relative unknowns right alongside more established filmmakers. When this year’s slate was first announced, however, I’ll cop to feeling a twinge of disappointment given the lack of major names, especially after 2016’s embarrassment of riches. »
