The Bottom Shelf: Willard, Ben, Street Trash and The Wonderful Worlds of Ray Harryhausen

Nick Aldwinckle Oct 30, 2017

This month's round up of genre DVDs and Blu-rays features Ray Harryhausen, Willard, rats on the rampage and more...

The underappreciated ‘nature gone wild’ porn horror movie subgenre has a somewhat patchy history, with a viewer’s search more likely to end up in some SyFy channel Megapterranoshark Versus Crocosaur cul-de-sac than something of the calibre of a Jaws or Arachnophobia. Sharks, spiders and gators are all well served, though (alongside the glaring lack of a movie adaptation of Guy N. Smith’s glorious Night Of The Crabs books) rodents have had something of a raw deal.

Fear not, though, faithful readers: we’re not going to drift off into Stuart Little territory just yet (that’ll be next month’s Stuart Little IV: The Rattening), as this month brings with it not one but two seventies rat-themed monster movie classics (well,

Class Of 1987 Retrospective Series Coming to Daily Dead Beginning July 5th

1987 was a wild year for horror and sci-fi cinema. We had an eclectic array of brilliant movies that spanned nearly every sub-genre you could imagine: classic monsters, vampires, slashers, supernatural, erotic thrillers, zombies, possession, cannibals, aliens, evil toys, cabin in the woods, anthological, or even indescribable horror (à la Street Trash). You name it, and there was probably a movie that came out during 1987 that would absolutely fit the bill. It was a banner year, and an amazing time to be a genre fan (for those of us old enough to have lived through it in real time).

In the spirit of last year’s “Class of 1986” celebration which we hosted right here on Daily Dead, for the next few weeks we’ll be running our “Class of 1987” series, which will pay tribute to a number of notable horror and sci-fi movies from 1987 with retrospectives, exclusive interviews, Corpse Club podcast episodes,

NYC Weekend Watch: Ozu, Peter Nestler, ‘Monterey Pop,’ Bertrand Tavernier & More

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Metrograph

The best of Ozu in one series.

Films by members of Magnum Photos will screen, as does Alan Clarke’s Rita, Sue and Bob Too.

Museum of the Moving Image

The Spielberg series screens three underseen, rediscovery-ready titles this weekend.

Film Society of Lincoln Center

Largely unseen, the films of Peter Nestler, a key figure in post-war German cinema, are being given their due in a new series.

Nitehawk Cinema

Midnight brings the restored Monterey Pop, Street Trash, and The Holy Mountain.

The Blues Brothers (with pre-show performance) and The Lost World screen before noon.

Quad Cinema

The films made and loved by Bertrand Tavernier are screening.

Funeral Parade of Roses continues its run.

Museum of Modern Art

The Philippine series continues running, including two films by Lav Diaz.

IFC Center

Midnight brings To Live and Die in L.A., The Thing, The Italian Job, and Taxi Driver.

During the day, Stalker, No Country for Old Men, and Monterey Pop are offered.

The Bottom Shelf: Frankenhooker, We Are The Flesh

Apr 28, 2017

Lucio Fulci, Frankenhooker and more in our round up of new horror Blu-rays and DVDs...

So, what’s your personal idea of hell? For this writer, it would almost certainly involve being chained down in the audience of an eternal live filming of Loose Women as Donald Trump waves a slice of tiger bread, forever just out of reach. Yours is likely to be similar, though it would have to be pretty grim indeed to come anywhere near Lucio Fulci’s 1981 career-best infernal vision and perhaps the definitive (obviously other than Little Nicky) cinematic depiction of eternal damnation, The Beyond.

Due Demoni: Lamberto Bava's "Demons" and "Demons 2"

  • MUBI
Mubi is showing Lamberto Bava's Demons (1985) from February 26 to March 28 and Demons 2 (1986) from February 27 to March 29, 2017 in the United States as part of the series Due Demoni.Horror movie viewing as societal disease in Lamberto Bava's Demons (left) and Demons 2 (right)The opening shots of Lamberto Bava’s Demons contrast the film’s adorably ingenuous protagonist with the ragged punk hordes of the subway car she’s riding. She stares at them with equal parts fascination and doe-in-headlights dread. It’s a concise visualization of the simple social commentary driving Bava the Younger’s trashterpiece diptych, Demons and Demons 2. The two make an excellent double feature of midnight flicks about the perils of daring to dip even passingly into the lower depths of subculture and the, well, demons that society risks releasing when willing to dabble in The Weird. But cautionary tales are rarely this batshit and never this fun,

Unforgettable Ooze: A Look Back at Horror Movies & Slime

  • DailyDead
[Guest authors Christopher Lombardo and Jeff Kirschner of Really Awful Movies take a look back at some of the most memorable slimy moments in the horror and sci-fi genres.] In Jean-Paul Sartre’s Being and Nothingness, the philosopher weighs in on the icky properties of slime: “…it sticks to me, it draws me, it sucks at me. Its mode of being is neither the reassuring inertia of the solid nor a dynamism…”

The author described “le visqueux” (viscosity) at length, and reportedly even stared at algae to experience the repulsive feelings associated with the title and theme of his dour novel Nausea.

When it comes to phobias, a fear of slime sits pretty low on the list. Who has even heard of blennophobia compared with more prevalent fears such as agora- or arachnophobia?

Perhaps because it’s one of those fears, like being scared of fire, that is so ubiquitous that it doesn’t really need a psychological condition or fancy verbiage attached to it. After all, it’s pretty rare to experience fire in your day-to-day life (as

[A Brew To A Kill] Septic Man and The Brown Note

I don’t believe in Karma. But there may be something to it. I’m sitting in my basement getting a whiff of my own shit while trying to write about a movie called Septic Man. Nothing like a good rain to get the sewer backed up. Ugh. Here’s hoping I can get power through this while holding my nose.

Water contamination in a small Canadian town forces an evacuation. That is when plumber Jack (Jason David Brown) is approached by a strange man (Julian Richings) who asks him to look into the cause. Years ago, Jack was able to fix a similar problem and received no recognition. After convincing his pregnant wife (Molly Dunsworth) to leave without him, he goes to investigate at the water treatment plant. Unfortunately for Jack he his trapped in a giant septic tank by metal mouthed, non talker, Lord Auch (Tim Burd) and

April 19th Blu-ray & DVD Releases Include The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and The Stuff

This third week of April has some exciting home entertainment offerings for us genre fans, including the special edition releases of two cult classics I adore, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and The Stuff. An indie film I’ve been hearing about for a while now, Grimewave, also makes its way to DVD this Tuesday and while it may not be traditional horror, Oscar-winner The Revenant certainly has enough badassery contained within its cinematic frames to be worthy of mentioning this week, and it arrives on both Blu-ray and DVD on April 19th.

Other notable releases this week include Smothered (which features a ton of horror icons and was directed by John Schneider of Smallville and Dukes of Hazzard fame), 15 Till Midnight, Classroom 6, Ip Man 3, German Angst and She Wolf Rising.

The Outre Eye of Daniel Xiii Featuring: Magnetic, Kung Fu Trailers Of Fury, The Bees, From Parts Unknown and More!
Before we dive in to this week’s revoltin’ reviews, I’d like to call attention to a fright flick exploding (quite literally) onto yer TV screens from those diabolical dudes atNecrostorm titled The Mildew From Planet Xonader! Now I worked on this flick, and I am damn proud of the outcome, so I really want to give ya taste of what the whole shebang is all about!

Some of you more astute creeps may remember I’ve talked about this film here before, but now I’ve had the chance to lay my putrid peepers on it, and I can assure you it’s an ultra-gory good time (and not just because my alter-ego provides some vicious voices for the goings-on).

The story goes a lil’ somethin’ like this: deep within the bowels of a top-secret research facility, scientists have been conducting experiments with a rapid-spread mildew capable of

Exclusive Clip: Bloody Knuckles Plays With Fire. On Blu-ray Today!

Today on Blu-ray Artsploitation films is releasing Matt O.'s Bloody Knuckles. Bloody Knuckles is a bit of a left field choice from Artsploitation, who've made their name straddling the line between high-minded art films and genre films. This film, on the other hand, is more of an '80s style sleazefest. Lots of gooey practical effects a la Street Trash and the constant intent to offend at any cost are high on the Bloody Knuckles priority list. It's certainly a fun film, here's what Artsploitation has to say about it:Travis, an underground comic book artist with a penchant for obscene caricatures, upsets a Chinatown crime lord who responds by cutting off the young man's hand. As a despondent, drunken Travis wallows in post-severed hand depression, his...

10 Messed Up ’80s Horror Movies That Must Be Seen To Be Believed

New World Pictures

There’s something magical about 1980’s horror movies that simply can’t be found in any film made before or since. On the outskirts of all the classics like A Nightmare on Elm Street and The Shining there were your cheesy movies full of giant monsters, gross out special effects, and some of the most incomprehensible plots you’ll ever find on the big screen.

During this time, the genre began to see a shift back to the schlocky movies of the late 1950s like Attack of the Crab Monsters and Earth vs. The Spider. While the majority of horror films in the ’70s were rather serious, featuring realistic killers and reflecting anxiety over the Vietnam war, the ’80s were anything but. Filmmakers got back into making fun, intentionally goofy movies with Ash Williams killing zombies while spouting one liners, calling on you to turn off your

Take a Swig of Viper at The Hi-Pointe Midnights This Weekend – Street Trash

“I don’t need this. I already got trouble with my kids, my wife, my business, my secretary, the bums… the runaways, the roaches, prickly heat, and a homo dog. This just ain’t my day!”

Street Trash screens midnights this Friday and Saturday Night (August 7th and 8th) at The Hi-Pointe Theater (1005 McCausland Ave, St. Louis) as part of Destroy the Brain’s monthly Late Night Grindhouse

Vintage Vinyl, the used record store on the Loop in U City, is housed in the same building that used to be the Varsity Theater. The Varsity is where The Rocky Horror Picture Show played midnights to sold-out crowds throughout much of the ‘70s and -80s. The theater definitely catered to the cult and college crowd, presenting counterculture film programming, mostly for the students at nearby Washington University and for years was the only place in town to catch 3-D movies.
