Yummy - Jennie Kermode - 16152

Yummy - Jennie Kermode - 16152
The notion of cosmetic surgery and experimental skin treatments leading to a breach in the boundary between life and undeath has already enjoyed a good outing recently thanks to the Soska sisters' take on Rabid. Hot on its heels comes Yummy, a Belgian zomcom with a lot of blood, a dash of romance and not a whole lot going on upstairs. It's an affectionate tribute to House Of The Dead's much-loved hospital level (even managing to insert the line "don't come" and make it sound natural) but in a marketplace already crowded with shuffling, glassy-eyed hordes, it doesn't do enough to stand out.

The story begins with Alison (Maaike Neuville), her boyfriend Michael and her mother Sylvia (Annick Christiaens). Alison has chosen to visit an elite private clinic for a breast reduction (cue lots of groping...

10 80s Movies That Flopped At The Box Office, But Are Cult Classics Now
Many films that are cherished today were not necessarily loved when they were released in the theater. They either slowly gained momentum or most people did not care or did not know about them.

Related: 10 '80s Movies That Deserve Netflix Series

Movies like the audience participation film, The Rocky Horror Picture Show became well-loved because of the buzz around the members of the audience re-enacting scenes of the movie. Or David Lynch's Eraserhead, which acquired its following and gained its "classic" status from midnight movie showings. These are the top 80s movies that flopped at the box office, but are now cult classics.

Stanley Kubrick’s Career Was Propelled by Box Office Success More Than by Critics

Stanley Kubrick’s Career Was Propelled by Box Office Success More Than by Critics
It’s mid-summer. Normally we’d be covering the openings of “The Forever Purge” and “Ghostbusters: Afterlife,” with “Minions: Rise of Gru” in its second weekend competing for #1. As usual, all franchise titles, likely all hits.

Thirty-three years ago on the same weekend, another “franchise” was #2. His name was Stanley Kubrick, and “Full Metal Jacket,” his 12th film, went wide and began its successful road to profit.

The master filmmaker’s first release in seven years, “Jacket” continued his fruitful exclusive relationship with Warner Bros. (similar to the studio’s ties with Clint Eastwood and Christopher Nolan). Atypically for the season and the studio, it started as a limited release on June 26, then expanded on July 10. 12 years later his posthumously released “Eyes Wide Shut” opened on July 16. It’s impossible imagining either going in summer or even being made.

Kubrick’s ability to make such esoteric films didn’t happen in a vacuum.

25 greatest movie musicals based on Broadway plays to watch after ‘Hamilton,’ ranked worst to best, including ‘West Side Story,’ ‘Cabaret,’ ‘My Fair Lady’
If you never had a chance to see the rap musical mega-hit “Hamilton” on the stage, you are in luck, because Disney is releasing a filmed performance of the show on Disney+ just in time for the Fourth of July. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Pulitzer Prize-winning hit holds the title for most Tony nominated show with sixteen, and it took home eleven trophies, just one shy of tying the record set by “The Producers.” If you’re hungry for more spectacular showstoppers you can watch in the comfort of your home, we’ve assembled a list of the greatest movie adaptations of Broadway musicals, ranked worst to best.

‘Vampire Dad’ Review

‘Vampire Dad’ Review
Stars: Grace Fulton, Emily O’Brien, Jackson Hurst, Barak Hardley, Sarah Palmer, Juli Cuccia, Michael Naizu, Rich Cohen, Linda Nile | Written by Frankie Ingrassia, Kathryn M. Moseley | Directed by Frankie Ingrassia

Set in the early 1960s, Vampire Dad tells the story of the titular dad, Dr. Raymond Walenski – a family man-turned-vampire by Victoria, queen of the underworld. Turned into a vampire not because of some accident, being caught in the woods late a night, or being out during a full mood. No, Raymond becomes a vampire by choice – not his choice though, it’s Victoria’s choice. You see the queen of the underworld has a problem and she needs a therapist for the creatures under her rule.

Of course being a vampire isn’t as cool as it sounds, especially not in the suburbs of 1960s, which leaves Raymond struggling to keep his vampiric nature under control while his devoted

Bully. Tyrant. Genius: 8 Things We Learned From New Doc on Producer David Foster
It’s been virtually impossible to avoid David Foster for close to five decades. No matter the era, he’s been part of your pop life. Grew up in the Seventies? You probably remember his first hit, “Wildflower,” when he was in Canadian pop-r&b band Skylark; the Tubes’ “She’s a Beauty,” which he co-wrote and produced; and Earth, Wind & Fire’s “After the Love Has Gone,” which Foster co-wrote. In the Eighties, there was Boz Scaggs’ “Jojo,” a slew of Chicago comeback power ballads (“Hard to Say I’m Sorry,

You Don't Nomi – the curious allure of Showgirls

You Don't Nomi – the curious allure of Showgirls
The perverse critical power of Paul Verhoeven’s outrageous 1995 melodrama is dissected in this affectionate documentary

It’s 25 years since screenwriter Joe Eszterhas and director Paul Verhoeven released their jaw-dropping example of what can only be called hardcore soft porn: Showgirls, the story of a tough, sexy dancer called Nomi arriving in Las Vegas longing to make it in the bafflingly unprestigious world of hotel entertainment erotica floorshows. She was played by Elizabeth Berkley, who, with Verhoeven’s encouragement, delivered her character like a Stepford-Westworld sexbot: toggling with lightning speed between badass pouting, sultry smirking and explosive tantrums.

This documentary from Jeffrey McHale is an affectionate account of how this film has been rehabilitated. It was at first mocked by the critics, then showered with Razzies, which Verhoeven accepted in person like a good sport – the first step in its long, ironically humorous upward march. Showgirls then had an afterlife as a campy midnight-movie event,

“Time Warp: The Greatest Cult Films Of All Time: Volume 1” Enjoyably Tackles Midnight Madness
I’m a sucker for documentaries about cinema. There’s just something about a doc looking inward on its own medium that compels me. Perhaps it’s just the cinephile in me, yearning to learn as much as possible about as many films as possible? That’s a possibility, but it also could just be how fun they tend to be. The new documentary series Time Warp: The Greatest Cult Films of All Time, is definitely an example of that. Dropping tomorrow, part one of the three part series, Time Warp: The Greatest Cult Films of All Time Part I – Midnight Madness, dives into just what makes a midnight movie, why they’re so special, and how a cult of fandom has formed around so many of them. It’s a deeply enjoyable experience that I recommend highly for fans of the genre. The film is a documentary, part one
