Cult Italo Helmer Fernando Di Leo, A Tarantino Fave, Set For First Remake With ‘Madness’ Redo (Exclusive)

Cult Italo Helmer Fernando Di Leo, A Tarantino Fave, Set For First Remake With ‘Madness’ Redo (Exclusive)
Rome – Fernando Di Leo, the late Italian exploitation-pic maestro exhumed from oblivion after Quentin Tarantino started citing his works as inspiration, is getting a first remake with plans underway for a contempo redo of his violent 1980 noir “Madness,” about an escaped con seeking to retrieve some loot from under the floorboards of an isolated cottage.

Madness” (pictured) which starred Andy Warhol alumnus Joe Dallesandro (“Flesh,” “Trash,” “Heat”) as multiple murderer Joe Brezzi, is a lesser-known title by Di Leo whose titles comprise 1970’s gangster pics “Wipeout!,” (Aka “The Boss”) – known to be among Tarantino’s favourite grindhouse movies – “Mister Scarface,” and “Italian Connection.” It’s also being touted as the first of a trio of planned Di Leo remakes.

“We are starting with this one, which is considered a minor Di Leo work, in order to be humble and not put too much pressure on the director,” said Gianluca Curti,

Wes Craven Remembered by Bob Weinstein: "It Was a Joy to Listen to Him Talk About Fear"

As head of Dimension Films, Bob Weinstein had to convince Wes Craven to direct Kevin Williamson's meta-horror screenplay, originally called 'Scary Movie,' which was released in 1996 as Scream. The movie, which grossed $173 million worldwide, gave birth to three sequels and a series on MTV. Looking back, Weinstein remembers Craven, whose name became synonymous with smart horror movies, as "a student of the art of that genre." I had never met Wes. I knew him from movies only, but I was a big fan of The Last House Left and A Nightmare on Elm Street scared the hell

R.I.P. Wes Craven (1939 – 2015)

Some sad news this morning as it has been revealed that American filmmaker and horror maestro Wes Craven has passed away at his home in Los Angeles aged 76 after a battle with brain cancer.

Craven began his career as a director in 1972 with his first feature The Last House of the Left, a controversial rape-revenge thriller that proved to be a box office success. He followed this with films like The Hills Have Eyes, Deadly Blessing and Swamp Thing before introducing the world to the iconic character of Freddy Krueger with 1984’s slasher classic A Nightmare on Elm Street.

He would return to the Elm Street franchise as co-writer on 1987’s A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors as well as directing 1994’s Wes Craven’s New Nightmare. In 1996 he enjoyed huge success and breathed new life into the slasher genre with Scream, returning to direct all three sequels

Horror Director Wes Craven Dead at 76

The man who gave us Freddy Krueger is gone! One of the great, name-above-the title horror maestros of the ‘70s and ‘80s has died. Wes Craven was a huge name in the horror biz – his A Nightmare On Elm Street in ’84 was an influential shocker, spawning many sequels and rip-offs. He followed that up with the first three Scream films. He was such a box-office sure-thing, he was the reigns to a Meryl Streep Oscar-baiter with 1999’s Music Of The Heart. But Craven’s heart was always in horror: The Hills Have Eyes, The Swamp Thing, The Serpent And The Rainbow, and The People Under The Stairs were among his many popular films. My favorite remains his first, The Last House On The Left, a still-terrifying look at sadism and savagery that was decades ahead of its time. Wes Craven was 76 and had suffered from brain cancer.

Eli Roth Producing ‘Cabin Fever’ Remake – With The Same Script

Well, this is strange. Just 12 years after the release of Eli Roth’s debut movie Cabin Fever, it seems that it is getting the remake treatment by Intruder director Travis Zariwny. Roth himself is behind the film, and will serve as executive producer.

Cabin Fever was a low budget horror movie set around a group of teenagers who head to a cabin in the woods. While there, they gradually succumb to a mysterious flesh-eating virus. Obviously there are parallels between this and similarly themed efforts including The Evil Dead and even The Last House Of The Left.

It seems that there is some logic behind remaking the film though, as Roth explains.

“Travis had an amazing vision for my original script, and as a scary movie fan I really wanted to see it. I almost see this like re-staging a play, and I’m excited to see what ideas Travis

Christina Hendricks, Aaron Paul, Allison Williams: The Power of Strong Supporting Roles

Christina Hendricks, Aaron Paul, Allison Williams: The Power of Strong Supporting Roles
Actors dream of landing that one role that ignites a career.

Even if it’s not quite the “42nd Street” fantasy of instantaneous stardom for the understudy, a supporting role on a TV series can be an important stepping stone, especially if the show is a critical and/or commercial success. And in rare instances, the magic of being in the right supporting role on the right show at the right time can propel a player who’s the second (or third) banana into full-fledged stardom, the kind that inspires Internet parodies, Halloween costumes and social-media shrines.

Such was the case for three actors who rocketed from virtual obscurity, through scene-stealing supporting roles, to become likely contenders in this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards derby. Christina Hendricks made Joan a force to be reckoned with during the pilot shoot for “Mad Men.” Aaron Paul saved the life of Jesse Pinkman

A mind bending supernatural thriller, The Last House follows Kelly (Lindsey Haun) as she is house-sits for an estranged couple who are taking a trip to Italy to escape their troubles and start afresh.

Mórbido Fest 2013 Review: House Of Last Things, A Different Kind Of Ghost Story

A small boy clutches a yellow balloon as if it's a security blanket. A young woman cuts open an apple only to find a golf ball inside. Her teenage brother watches in fright as a photo of a loving couple morphs into that of two coffins, side by side.These are just a handful of the fantastic images from Micharl Bartlett's House Of Last Things, a ghost story that behaves far differently from most other recent American fare that have chosen to play in such supernatural realms. Though the film is at times still quite creepy, and always persistently strange, Bartlett's story is refreshingly absent of evil and any real terror, gruesome or otherwise. For as much as it is a ghost story House Of Last...
