Song You Need to Know: King Diamond’s ‘Masquerade of Madness’ Is a Crushing Paean to Insanity

It’s been 12 years since everybody’s favorite corpse-painted Danish vampire, King Diamond, last rose from his crypt with new music and nine since a series of heart attacks sidelined him from touring for a few years. Now that he’s gotten some fresh blood and regained his sea legs, he’s back to his old shrieky self and has recorded a new ripper, “Masquerade of Madness,” which will appear on his new LP, The Institute, due next year.

The track has all the hallmarks of Classic King Diamond: plodding riffs (you know,

Terminator: Sarah Connor, Laurie Strode and Becoming Unstoppable

Natalie Zutter Nov 5, 2019

Terminator: Dark Fate follows the Halloween franchise in recentering the story around the women who started it all.

This article contains spoilers for Terminator: Dark Fate and Halloween (2018).

What do a 19-year-old waitress and a 16-year-old babysitter have in common? Neither got any warning that her life was about to be shattered. In the space of one fateful night and a violent attack that neither could have predicted or prevented, their idyllic existences—dates and daydreams, service shifts and National Honor Society—are transformed into desperate fights for survival. Sarah Connor of the Terminator movies and Laurie Strode of Halloween become final girls, but more than that, they are remade as mothers of franchises. Each woman’s first showdown, with the Terminator and with Michael Myers, respectively, spawns an entire fictional world that largely grows up without them.

Until now with the release of Terminator: Dark Fate and last year’s Halloween.

‘Terror Train’ Blu-ray Review (88 Films)

  • Nerdly
Stars: Ben Johnson, Jamie Lee Curtis, Hart Bochner, David Copperfield, Vanity | Written by T.Y. Drake | Directed by Roger Spottiswoode

I love the slasher film craze more so than any other sub-genre. Yes, they’re a little repetitive for the most part but they’re always fun to watch. I guess the big formula with most of them, is A) Insert traumatic event. B) Find a location, secluded or otherwise. C) Cast teenagers and have them doff their tops and D) Have them get killed in a variety of manners. Also, the more dated the production, the better. Terror Train follows all of these steps and more. It’s one of the more upstanding and inventive of the slasher films to come out of the early 80′s. The biggest reason why it stands out to me, is that while Jamie Lee Curtis is the star of the film and easily the most recognizable of the roles.

Terminator Box Office Suffers Dark Fate

David Crow Nov 3, 2019

Terminator: Dark Fate opens at $29 million, the worst #1 November opening in six years and barely better than Genisys.

After previous models revealed more than a few flaws, there appears to be little enthusiasm among North American moviegoers to check out what Terminator: Dark Fate has under the hood. That’s perhaps the biggest takeaway from the film’s tepid opening weekend at the box office.

Despite opening in first place this weekend, besting Joker in its fifth weekend and Maleficent: Mistress of Evil in its third, the Tim Miller-directed Terminator: Dark Fate fell below expectations when it debuted at an estimated $29 million. That number also makes Dark Fate the lowest #1 November opening since Ender’s Game in 2013.

This figure is below the floor Paramount Pictures set as their estimates for the weekend of $30 to $40 million, and it is certainly below what expectations must’ve existed when

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Boogey Man (1980)

Sometimes you come around on a film; perhaps not a complete 180 degrees, but somewhere over 90 and enough to make one reevaluate previous harsh judgments. And so it is with The Boogey Man (1980), German art house director Ulli Lommel’s paean to psychic residue and familial discourse as filtered through a ludicrous mash-up of The Exorcist, Halloween, and The Amityville Horror. Once attuned to its peculiar charms, it’s hard to resist.

Distributed by The Jerry Gross Organization (Zombie) in early November, The Boogey Man was a huge success – probably baffling Lommel and definitely baffling the critics, who were none too kind at the time (nor are most now). Made for a paltry $300,000, the film brought in between $25 and 35 million, depending on which accountant you ask. Big numbers for a film filled with technical inconsistency, mostly poor acting, and enough plot for three films.

Halloween Kills First Look at Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy Doyle

Halloween Kills First Look at Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy Doyle
Anthony Michael Hall can be seen as Tommy Doyle in the first Halloween Kills footage. Yesterday was Halloween and Jamie Lee Curtis celebrated by sharing a sneak peek at the highly anticipated sequel to last year's Halloween. Fans of the franchise were taken by surprise since nobody expected to be getting some footage so soon, but it seems things are already further along than initially thought. Curtis is back as the iconic Laurie Strode and Judy Greer is back as Strode's daughter Karen, as seen in the new footage.

The Halloween Kills sneak peak also offers up our first look at Anthony Michael Hall as the adult version of Tommy Doyle. The character was the young boy who Laurie Strode was babysitting in the 1978 original and he has shown up a few more times in the franchise, though the rest of those movies have been erased by the new trilogy.

‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ Powers to $2.35 Million at Thursday Box Office

  • The Wrap
‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ Powers to $2.35 Million at Thursday Box Office
Terminator: Dark Fate,” the latest sequel to the “Terminator” franchise that brought back the original stars Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger, made $2.35 million in previews on Thursday night. It opens on approximately 4,000 screens this weekend.

As November kicks off, “Terminator: Dark Fate” is one of four titles opening in wide release this weekend. Warner Bros. has the noir film “Motherless Brooklyn” starring Edward Norton, Focus Features has “Harriet,” the Harriet Tubman biopic starring Cynthia Erivo, and Entertainment Studios has the animated “Arctic Dogs.” Additionally, Netflix is releasing Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” into limited theaters beginning this weekend.

“Dark Fate,” though, is aiming to prevent Judgment Day yet again and bring the “Terminator” franchise back to life, with the studio projecting an opening between $35-40 million behind a $185 million budget. It would have to overperform to $45 million to become the highest opening for a Terminator film, ahead of 2003’s “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.

Halloween Kills writer Danny McBride lassos frontier Western

  • JoBlo
Actor, writer, and producer Danny McBride is an interesting cat. While he's often seen as merely the schlubby douchebag from films like Pineapple Express or the over-the-top Kenny Powers from Eastbound and Down, the guy is honestly so much more than that. He's dabbled in science fiction (Alien: Covenant) and horror with last years's successful reboot of Halloween. Well you can now…

All the Stars You Completely Forgot Were in the Terminator Movies

All the Stars You Completely Forgot Were in the Terminator Movies
It's been a long and winding road for the Terminator franchise, which picks up Friday where it ostensibly left off in 1991, when Arnold Schwarzenegger's T-800 sacrificed itself to destroy the chip in its head that, while fueling an at least temporarily successful rescue mission, could potentially be used to help annihilate humanity one day. Similar to how 2018's Halloween asked you to forget that there had been nine sequels/reboots/updates in the interim since the original in 1978, so Terminator: Dark Fate follows the action directly from Terminator 2: Judgment Day, never mind the three movies made in the meantime, two of them featuring Ah-nuld. Which, for...
