Raw Meat Midnights This Weekend at The Moolah – ‘Late Night Grindhouse’

“Mind the doors! “

Raw Meat screens Midnights this weekend (June 30th and July 1st) at The Moolah Theater and Lounge (3821 Lindell Blvd, St. Louis, Mo 63108) as part of Destroy the Brain’s monthly Late Night Grindhouse film series.

Trapped by falling masonry during construction of the London Underground, a group of Victorian workers survive in the bowels of the earth for more than a century, breeding amongst themselves and cannibalizing the dead. A hundred years after their ordeal began, the last remaining descendant (Hugh Armstrong) finds his way back to the surface and begins to abduct people from station platforms in a desperate bid for companionship…..and food.

Despite its lurid title, the 1972 cannibal-in-the-subway movie from Gary Sherman (whose Dead And Buried and Vice Squad have already played Late Night Grindhouse), Raw Meat is one of the most intelligent and boldest horror films of the ‘70s. The opening scenes of

Death Line aka Raw Meat

This early gore-horror picture has a remarkable emphasis on human values, believe it or not, with a ‘monster’ that nevertheless is a paragon of loving gentleness. Add Donald Pleasance as a surly, posh-hating police inspector, and the shock value makes the Hammer films of the early ’70s taste like weak tea.

Dead And Buried Midnights This Weekend at The Moolah

“You can try to kill me, Dan. But you can’t. You can only make me dead. ”

Dead And Buried screens Midnights this weekend (March 24th and 25th) at The Moolah Theater and Lounge (3821 Lindell Blvd, St. Louis, Mo 63108) as part of Destroy the Brain’s monthly Late Night Grindhouse film series.

Drive-In Dust Offs: Raw Meat aka Death Line (1972)

  • DailyDead
British horror was still going through a transitional phase by the early ‘70s. Trying to turn people’s perception away from cobweb strewn castles and fog laden swamps, they played in the modern day with such classics as Tales from the Crypt, The Abominable Dr. Phibes, The Vault of Horror, Theatre of Blood, and Asylum. (Okay, those are either anthologies or Vincent Price films, but there are many other goodies as well.) So strong was the vibe that an American made the leap across the pond for his directorial debut, Raw Meat Aka Death Line (1972), a grimy, funny, and surprisingly poignant first effort from Gary Sherman (Dead and Buried).

Released in England in ’72 under the original Death Line title, it would take until September of ’73 to be unleashed on American soil by Aip under its better known moniker. Critics were decidedly mixed on Raw Meat; Roger Ebert considered it a “good debut” for Sherman,

Blu-ray Review: The Return Of The Living Dead Collector’s Edition

It’s hard to believe that the same year George A. Romero released Day of the Dead, the ultra-gory, ultra-bleak conclusion of the trilogy he began with Night of the Living Dead in 1968, writer/director Dan O’Bannon was spinning Romero’s original classic into a totally new direction with The Return of the Living Dead. Whereas Romero’s film is dark and sober, Return is pure punk rock anarchy—a horror comedy that successfully manages to be equal parts horror and comedy while introducing one of the most significant elements into the zombie mythos since Romero first made them flesh-eaters 17 years earlier.

The film’s ingenious premise—which was “meta” before being meta was really a thing—is that the events of the original Night of the Living Dead really did take place and were covered up, with the zombies locked into airtight drums and left in the basement of a medical supply facility.

The Dead Lands | Review

Dead and Buried: Fraser’s Sumptuously Filmed, Familiar Revenge Drama

Premiering at the Toronto Film Festival and snagging the distinction of representing New Zealand as the official best foreign language selection in 2014, Toa Fraser’s The Dead Lands is the first film to be shot entirely in the Maori language and to be told entirely from their character perspective (and not in their relation to white characters). That the narrative is entirely derivative, and with a brutality that will put one, peripherally, in mind of Apocalypto (yes, that Mel Gibson about the Mayans) is sometimes easy to overlook considering the film’s vibrant palette. But as well intentioned as these honorable characterizations are intended in Glenn Strandring’s script, on film they are shapeless archetypes of good vs. evil in an endless cycle of violence brought to a wishful thinker’s fantastical resolution.

Review: Dark Souls II (Xbox360)

I remember not long after it was released, one of my friends bought me Dark Souls for my birthday. It wasn’t a game I’d heard very much about, and so was intrigued as to how good a game I’d been given. No more than an hour into the game I was starting to think I was the victim of some cruel joke my friend had played, and yet, something about Dark Souls kept me going back to it. From Software had created a game so unforgiving it was infuriating, and yet it was never unfair, and it is for that reason, when I was given the opportunity to review Dark Souls II I jumped at the chance.

I always like to keep an open mind when I play a game, since no game is the same as its predecessors. Sequels I find tend to be a bit

It’s Not TV: HBO, The Company That Changed Television: The Movie Duels

14) The Movie Duels

Hell, there are no rules here – we’re trying to accomplish something.

Thomas Edison

There’s a story that on the November night in 1972 when HBO went on the air for the very first time to a few hundred subscribers in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Gerald Levin – then HBO’s top programmer and soon-to-be chief exec – ordered living room furniture installed in his office so he could watch that premiere night of HBO the way the channel’s first subscribers would see it. He wanted to see HBO through their eyes.

Today, in an era of Netflix, Hulu, on-demand, downloadable content available on almost everything but the kitchen toaster, it’s hard to appreciate how novel the concept of HBO was over 40 years ago. Except for a few small pockets of the country which had experienced the come-and-go efforts of earlier subscription TV services, nobody – including the people running

Fright Exclusive Interview With Mondo Poster Artist Jay Shaw!!

Poster artist Jay Shaw has already made a name for himself by creating some of the coolest prints for Mondo, Gallery 1988 and more than a handful of other studios. While a lot of other artists feel the need to throw every single detail of a film into their posters, Shaw’s style is a very unique one, typically focusing on an identifiable object from the film, and working from there.

By far my favorite artist working today, Jaw’s posters are plastered across my walls at home, and it’d be an accurate statement to say that I was pretty stoked to spend a little bit of time speaking with Jay regarding his work with Mondo & Gallery 1988, how he got into poster design, and some of his favorite horror films. Read on!

You have a very unique style to your work, while a lot of artists throw everything And the kitchen sink into their stuff,

Ramrod is Coming! Vice Squad at the Hi-Pointe Midnights this Weekend!

“Make a move, and make my day!”

If you think that line was said by Clint Eastwood in one of his Dirty Harry films, you’d be mistaken. It was uttered in 1982, the year before Sudden Impact, in director Gary Sherman’s sensationally sleazy Vice Squad, a sordid but exciting look at life on the seedy strip of Hollywood and Sunset Boulevard when the sun goes down. The guys at Destroy The usually feature horror fare at their monthly Late Night Grindhouse midnight series, but this weekend’s offering is indeed Vice Squad, a crime film more in line with a pair of Linda Blair movies (Chained Heat and Savage Streets) they showed last year (appropriate since Vice Squad star Wings Hauser dated Linda Blair for several years).

It may be hard out there for a pimp but the opening of Vice Squad where Ramrod, the sadistic pimp played by Hauser,

Want to grab lunch with 'Gremlins' director Joe Dante? Or have your script read by an Oscar-nominated screenwriter? Then check out the 'Trailers From Hell!' Kickstarter campaign
For fans of cult movies, Internet treasure troves don’t get much more treasure-y — or, I guess, trove-y — than Trailers From Hell!, the site where Gremlins director Joe Dante and his fellow “grindhouse gurus” talk viewers through vintage film promo clips.

Where else could you hear Hellboy auteur Guillermo del Toro recall wearing a fake moustache to sneak into 1981 horror flick Dead and Buried? Or Re-Animator director Stuart Gordon ruminate on the racially-charged ridiculousness of 1972′s The Thing with Two Heads? Or Animal House filmmaker John Landis entertainingly babble on about his days playing Roddy McDowall’s human slave in

Review: Dead & Buried (Blu-ray)

Potters Bluff is a quaint seaside town in Rhode Island that’s “the size of a postage stamp” according to its Sheriff, Dan Gillis (James Farentino). He has a beautiful wife, Janet (Melody Anderson), and the respect of the townspeople. It’s the kind of place where everyone is happy to see you, and they hope you’ll stick around for a long, long, time.

However, Sheriff Gillis has a problem no civil servant wants to have: His small town has been the site of several mysterious tourist murders. With the help of the local coroner, Mr. Dobbs (Jack Albertson), the poor Sheriff is in a no-win situation as bodies keep showing up.

Written by Dan O’ Bannon (Alien) and Ronald Shusett, Dead & Buried is the kind of really weird, and chokingly atmospheric horror movie they just don’t make anymore. Everything is shrouded in fog, day and night. And everyone acts a little strangely,

How The Nutty Professor Explains Eddie Murphy's Entire Film Career

Pretty much every time Eddie Murphy releases a film like A Thousand Words, Imagine That, Meet Dave or even Daddy Daycare, the critical world at large starts wondering out loud about whether we'll ever see the 'return of funny Eddie,' which is of course code for 'R-rated Eddie Murphy.'  The implication is, of course, that Murphy's more family-friendly work isn't funny, which is true (Meet Dave, The Haunted Mansion) about as often as it's false (Shrek, Dr. Doolittle).  But what these pundits fail to realize is two-fold.  First of all, we've been wondering when the Eddie Murphy of old will return longer than he was around in the first place.  Second of all, that persona is dead.  Dead and buried, and Mr. Murphy killed it himself right onscreen in front of us 16 years ago.  The very film that launched his most recent 'comeback' is the film that revolved
