Doors Guitarist Robby Krieger Boards Jim Morrison Movie

Doors Guitarist Robby Krieger Boards Jim Morrison Movie
A year after Ray Manzarek’s death, his Jim Morrison project “The Poet in Exile” remains very much alive.

Robby Krieger, the Doors’ guitarist, has come on board “Poet” as an executive producer who will work on the film’s soundtrack with Manzarek’s son Pablo and noted composer William Ross.

He’s also hopeful that Harrison Ford can be persuaded to portray Manzarek. During the band’s heyday in the late 1960s, Ford worked with the band as a stagehand and second camera assistant.

“I admit that it’s a longshot,” Krieger said of the potential casting of Ford. “I want to help this movie get made as much as possible.”

Alcon Entertainment went public last week with its desire for Ford to reprise his role as Rick Deckard in a reboot of the iconic sci-fi film “Blade Runner.” Reps for Ford have not responded to inquiries.

‘Sin’ (aka Bloody Bloody Bible Camp) DVD Review

Stars: Ivet Corvea, Jessica Sonneborn, Christopher Raff, Matthew Aidan, Ron Jeremy, Reggie Bannister, Tim Sullivan | Written by Vito Trabuco, Shelby McIntyre | Directed by Vito Trabucco

[Nb: With the film finally set for a UK DVD release under the title of Sin, some 2 years after its Us debut, here's my (old) review of Bloody Bloody Bible Camp from its original Us release]

Remember those ultra-gory slasher movies that were released to cash-in on the slasher-movie boom that followed the release of Friday the 13th? You know the ones, those that proliferated the shelves of video stores everywhere in the 80s? Well Sin, aka Bloody Bloody Bible Camp, is much like those – a low-budget, ultra-gory slasher, only this time round we’re treated to a gloriously camp take on the genre that sends up the movies it’s paying homage to, the catholic church, and Jesus Christ himself!

Sin, aka Bloody Bloody Bible Camp, opens with a 70s set prologue that straight away goes for the jugular as a group of miscreant teens at the Happy Day Bible Camp feel the wrath of Sister Mary Chopper who

FEARnet Movie Review: 'Lifeforce' Blu-Ray
 

There's so much to like about the 1985 science fiction / horror / action-packed apocalypse flick Lifeforce that one finds it very easy to overlook the film's numerous problems. I mean, why worry about boring stuff like editorial cohesion and tonal consistency when you have a flick jam-packed with spaceships, vampires, lasers, mass murder, and one of the most gorgeous naked ladies to ever grace the silver screen? No movie geek worth their stripes could dismiss Tobe Hooper's Lifeforce without admitting that there's some pretty amazing stuff on display in this adorably weird movie. Or if not amazing then at least novel, diverting, and audacious. The movie does borrow from a ton of other sci-fi films, but it has also inspired a few moments in films like Species, The Hidden, and 28 Days Later, so it all seems fair in the end.

  Look, the movie is based on a novel called The Space Vampires,

Adrian Garcia Bogliano’s creepy thriller Penumbra and the Us horror fantasy anthology Chillerama will receive their UK TV premieres on Horror Channel – which is good news for horror fans as both films are not currently available on DVD in the UK!

Penumbra (2011) – Sat Mar 23 @ 22:55

From Adrián García Bogliano, director of unique chiller Cold Sweat, comes a bold experiment into creeping paranoia with a nasty twist. Marga, an arrogant businesswoman from Spain is on a business assignment in Buenos Aires – she must find a new tenant for her family’s decrepit apartment. But what’s behind the décor signals a startling fate worse than death. Penumbra is a superbly realized horror entry from the Argentine talent rapidly becoming a genre powerhouse all to himself.

Interview: "Shelter" Star Trevor Wright On The Movie's Impact, His Gay Fans, And The Future

Trevor Wright photographed by Clinton Gaughran for AfterElton

At 30 years old, Trevor Wright can claim his ride in the entertainment industry has been both varied and very long. He began as a Gap spokeskid who landed a role in Paula Abdul's "Forever Your Girl" video alongside Elijah Wood, and he grew up landing roles on The George Lopez Show, NYPD Blue, Scrubs, and Boston Public. Then came the role for which AfterElton.com readers tend to be most appreciative: Zack in Shelter, the 2007 independent gay romance written by the film's director Jonah Markowitz. Wright's innocence and sensitivity in the role helped seal its position in our poll of the 100 greatest gay films ever -- it came in at #1. Yes, ahead of Brokeback Mountain. Anne Hathaway's resentment is palpable.

Wright is currently working on a web series with collaborators Tim Sullivan and Brian McCulley (the director and producer responsible

Geek Gossip: Robot & Frank, Secret Village, Ditch, Broken, A House Is Not A Home, Pain is Beautiful, Miss Poppins

It's the reign of the robots on screen, even though Spielberg's Robopocalypse went back to the drawing board for a total rethink.

Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim will show pilot-operated machines tackling an invasion of giant monsters, another Transformers is on the way and the next X-Men film is an exciting time-travel tale that will see mutant-hunting Sentinels targeting the team.

Continuing the trend but on a much smaller scale is Robot & Frank, which will be released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on March 8, 2013.

An official UK poster was recently unveiled for the movie, which is directed by Jake Schreier and stars Frank Langella, Susan Sarandon, James Marsden and Liv Tyler, with Robot voiced by Peter Sarsgaard.

Robot & Frank is a buddy caper. Set in the near future, ageing curmudgeon and retired jewel thief Frank (Frank Langella) lives a solitary life until his son (James Marsden) installs a caretaker robot,

Digital Fury: DVD Essentials for October

A Planet Fury-approved selection of notable genre releases for October.

Cinderella (1950) Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment Blu-ray and DVD Available Now

The Walt Disney classic finally makes it high definition debut. Though it was made over half a century ago, Cinderella remains a timeless work of animation. Part of its lasting appeal can be attributed to the amazing concept art of Mary Blair, whose gorgeous backgrounds and unique color palettes help to define its iconic visual style. Though she was only credited with color and styling, her influence in the look and feel of the finished product cannot be denied. Another aspect that is often overlooked is the lovely vocal contribution by actress Ilene Woods. She brings a measured confidence to the beloved heroine and her singing voice is as gorgeous as the animation.

DVD Review: The Deadly Spawn

The Deadly Spawn

Stars: Charles George Hildebrandt, Tom DeFranco, Richard Lee Porter | Written by Douglas McKweon, Ted A. Bohus | Directed by Douglas McKeown

Something awful is coming, hurtling through the void in a meteor that’s on a collision course with earth. When two foolish campers witness the meteor crash and investigate they become the first, of many, victims of the Deadly Spawn. Soon the spawn descend upon the basement of a house belonging to science-geek Pete (DeFranco), his movie obsessed younger brother Charles (Hildebrandt). As the spawn grow in size, and in appetite they eat their way through Pete and Charles’ family and friends, including Aunt Millie (Ethel Michelson) and Uncle Herb (John Schmerling), along with their invited guests and a handful of Pete’s study buddy’s…

Shot in 1982, The Deadly Spawn was the brainchild of producer Ted A. Bohus who, along with writer/director Douglas McKeown crafted a film that has,

DVD Review - The Deadly Spawn (1983)

The Deadly Spawn, 1983.

Directed by Douglas McKeown.

Starring Tom DeFranco, Charles George Hildebrandt, Ethel Michelson and John Schmerling.

Synopsis:

A crashed meteorite brings hostile alien life to Earth.

The Deadly Spawn is upfront about its inspirations, taking lead from and citing monster movies from the 1950s such as The Thing from Another World (1951), The Mole People (1956) and It! The Terror from Beyond Space (1958). Aspiring to blend the genres of horror and science-fiction, we open with a meteorite falling from outer space and landing in a remote part of New Jersey. Two plucky campers set out to investigate and are promptly dispatched in a pre-credits sequence that suitably sets the tone.

Following this, The Deadly Spawn struggles to find its footing. Another two characters are introduced - a mother and father - and some semblance of a plot seems to get going until strange happenings in a basement also lure these folks to their untimely demise.
