‘Bloody Marie’ VOD Review

Stars: Susanne Wolff, Dragos Bucur, Alexia Lestiboudois, Teun Luijkx, Jan Bijvoet, Therese Affolter, Mark Rietman, Kim Hertogs, Leny Breederveld, Dennis Rudge, Murth Mossel, Valentijn Dhaenens, Martijn van der Veen, Anna Tenta | Written and Directed by Lennert Hillege, Guido van Driel

The Netherlands is not a country that is very well known for its movies. Off the top of my head the only one I can actually think of is Christmas horror movie Sint/Saint (which is pretty good so check it out next December), so Bloody Marie enters a very small list of my movie watching entitled ‘Dutch cinema’.

Bloody Marie is the story of (unsurprisingly) Marie. A woman who was once a successful comic book artist but is now struggling to make a living through her art and lives in the Red Light District of Amsterdam. She is mostly drunk and walks the streets at night almost looking for

Film Review: Young Thugs: Innocent Blood (1997) by Takashi Miike

In their hometown of Osaka, a group of teenagers celebrates their graduation from school and their road into adulthood. Led by loudmouth Riichi (Koji Chihara), the three boys try to make ends meet collecting debts from local businesses, offering their services as bodyguards and eventually attempting to take on more solid jobs when, for example, Kotetsu (Kyosuke Yabe) gets a job as a bartender.

However, especially Riichi struggles with the reality after school. While his girlfriend manages Ryoko (Sarina Suzuki) to get a job at a local hair salon, his attempts at a regular job fail. When he cheats on her with a childhood friend of his, he becomes estranged from Ryoko as well as the other friends. Eventually, the separation and the fact he is beaten up several times by his former enemies, result in Riichi being severely depressed and lacking the necessary drive to move on in life.

Film Review: Young Thugs: Nostalgia (1998) by Takashi Miike

“Wherever we go…however far we walk…everything will stay the same.”

If we take a body of work as diverse as Takashi Miike, quite naturally one asks the question whether the director has a favorite. As Miike has repeatedly stated in the past, this particular honor goes to his 1998 film “Young Thugs: Nostalgia”, a prequel to “Young Thugs: Innocent Blood” released the year before and also based on the autobiographical novel by Riichi Nakabana. Considering films like “Blues Harp, “Ley Lines” and the “Dead or Alive”-series explored themes like origin, identity and growing up, the choice of this project, along with the finished product being Miike’s favorite film should not come as a surprise.

In general, both films, “Innocent Blood” and “Nostalgia”, define what has become the side of Miike, which is at times forgotten among the wildness of his other films, a tendency

Daniel Kurland Oct 9, 2018

Masters Of Horror Rewatch: John Landis’ “Deer Woman”

The man who gave us cinema’s greatest werewolf now brings us a pretty lady with deer legs.

I love John Landis. I know not everyone shares this opinion. He has been controversial ever since his involvement in the Twilight Zone: The Movie accident that claimed the lives of his leading man, Vic Morrow, and co-stars Myca Dinh Le and Shin-Yi Chen, both of whom were children. It’s an impossible discussion to have in any kind of satisfying way here; there was an entire book written about it (Outrageous Conduct by Stephen Farber and Marc Green) and a lengthy court case at the end of which Landis was absolved of legal responsibility. Clearly it was still a tragedy, and clearly Landis shares in the blame for an accident that could have been avoided. I only bring it up here to provide some context for Landis’ career and to let you,

Interview: Horror FX Legend Steve Johnson Talks Ghostbusters, Fright Night And More

When horror and film fans think of special FX legends, they usually lean toward Rob Botttin and Rick Baker, just to name a few. But there is one man who not only worked alongside these men, but became a master himself with work on films like An American Werewolf In London, The Howling, Big Trouble In Little China, Ghostbusters, Species and The Abyss, among so many others.

He helped create the lovable Slimer, did the make-up of a wicked ancient who was in search of women with green eyes to resurrect himself, and gave us the the feral vampires we love in films like Fright Night and Innocent Blood, as well as Blade II. His is a true story of a young passionate kid from Texas making a name for himself. The man is honest about his career, his wilder days in the business, and the ups and downs of

Review: "Innocent Blood" (1992) Directed By John Landis; Starring Anne Parillaud And Anthony Lagpaglia; Warner Archive Blu-ray

  • CinemaRetro
By Fred Blosser

The Warner Archive Collection has released John Landis’ “Innocent Blood” (1992) in a new, remastered Blu-ray edition. The Blu-ray incorporates two minutes of footage that appeared in overseas prints but were not included in previous U.S. releases. The film opens with a montage of the Pittsburgh skyline after dark, scored with Jackie Wilson’s lush 1960 ballad, “Night.” French vampire Marie (Anne Parillaud, in a lengthy nude scene) sits alone in her hotel room, deliberating on where to find her next sanguinary meal. She opens a newspaper to an article about a local Mafia crew headed by Sal “The Shark” Macelli and smiles: “I thought -- what about Italian?” She allows herself to be picked up by one of Sal’s henchmen, Tony (Chazz Palminteri), whose CD player is loaded with Sinatra discs. Just as Tony thinks she’s going to have sex with him, she chomps into

“Making a Hammer Film As If It Was Directed by Scorsese”: John Landis on Innocent Blood and Operating Muppets with Tim Burton

One of the most underrated films by one of America’s most underrated filmmakers just arrived on Blu-ray in the form of Warner Archive’s 25th-anniversary release of John LandisInnocent Blood. To call Landis underrated might seem perverse given that he’s directed some of the most successful and enduring movies of the late 1970s and early 1980s – National Lampoon’s Animal House, The Blues Brothers, An American Werewolf in London, Trading Places, Coming to America – but I still think his body of work has never quite gotten its critical due in this country, partly because his movies are so damn […]

John Landis on ‘Thriller 3D’, the ‘American Werewolf’ Remake, & Lucasfilm’s Director Troubles

He made John Belushi spit mashed potatoes out of his mouth in Animal House. He crashed dozens of cars in Chicago for a musical pile up in The Blues Brothers. He united The Three Amigos. He helped change the make up effects industry forever in An American Werewolf In London. He blew up Don Rickles in Innocent Blood. He let Eddie Murphy play half the cast of Coming To America. He’s John Landis, one of the greatest comedy filmmakers of his or any era. The guy is legend and oddly enough even all these years later his most iconic …

Re-Animator

Re-Animator

Blu-ray

Arrow

1985 / 1:85 / Street Date August 8, 2017

Starring: Jeffrey Combs, Barbara Crampton

Cinematography: Mac Ahlberg

Film Editor: Lee Percy

Written by Stuart Gordon, Dennis Paoli, William Norris

Produced by Brian Yuzna

Music: Richard Band

Directed by Stuart Gordon

Released in 1985, Stuart Gordon’s Re-Animator remains the grandest of Grand Guignols, a viscerally entertaining comedy that is just grindhouse enough for fans of Blood Feast and arthouse enough for connoisseurs of Francis Bacon’s more grisly canvases.

Originally scripted for Chicago’s Organic Theater Company by Gordon and co-writers Dennis Paoli and William Norris, Re-Animator was based on H. P. Lovecraft’s short story, Herbert West – Re-Animator, first published in 1922. Set in the blandly generic college town of Arkham, Massachusetts, the action revolves in and around the classrooms of stately Miskatonic University’s medical school and the sterilized atmosphere of the academy’s dank morgue evoked so well by Mac Ahlberg’s lush cinematography.

*Updated* An American Werewolf In London 35th Anniversary Blu-ray Announced

*Updated with the new 35th anniversary Blu-ray cover art.* “Keep clear of the Moors,” because Universal Pictures Home Entertainment will be releasing An American Werewolf in London on a restored, 35th anniversary edition Blu-ray this fall.

Scheduled for a September 27th release, An American Werewolf in London 35th anniversary Blu-ray comes with new cover art (see below) and features a restored version of the film, giving viewers a better look at John Landis’ lycanthrope mayhem and Rick Baker’s incredible, Oscar-winning makeup effects.

So far, the list of special features for the anniversary Blu-ray are the same ones that were included on the 2009 Full Moon Edition Blu-ray, making the restoration the only new element, but we’ll keep Daily Dead readers updated on future announcements regarding this release.

Fantastic Fest ’15 Review: Yakuza Apocalypse

Takashi Miike is an acquired taste, as we all know. The man has directed 98 projects ranging from tv to feature films, making an average of 3 projects s a year. That is, in a word, insane. The word insane often follows Miike’s name when referring to his work, which more often than not banks very heavily on the bizarre and/or graphic. Some Miike films are less out there than others, and not many in the past 10 years have done anything for me because of that. Yakuza Apocalypse is a return to “form” if there is such a thing, a kitchen sink of yakuza, vampires, Kung-fu, and animal-human hybrids. Naturally it’s a mess.

Boss Kamiura is the most unstoppable mob boss alive…because he’s undead. Being a vampire and an underworld leader is a powerful mix, but it turns out not unstoppable. A vampire hunter and a badass

'Evil Dead' Director Sam Raimi's Most Memorable Moments as a Horror Actor

  • FEARnet
'Evil Dead' Director Sam Raimi's Most Memorable Moments as a Horror Actor
Evil Dead director Sam Raimi is best known for his work behind the camera, but the truth is that he loves to act. Not in the Hitchcockian way, by cameos in his own films... he’s actually played roles great and small in tons of genre fare. Blink and you’ll miss him in the live action The Flintstones (in a crime scene re-enactment) and in John Landis’s Spies Like Us, where he plays alongside his pal Joel Coen as a guard: Sam & Joel Coen in "Spies Like Us" Sam has actually been friends with the Coen Brothers since Joel was an assistant editor on The Evil Dead, and at one point Sam, the Coen Brothers, and award-winning actresses Frances McDormand and Holly Hunter even shared living quarters. It’s no surprise then that Sam has been in two of the Coens' films: The Hudsucker Proxy and Miller’s Crossing.

'American Horror Story: Coven' Adds Three Witches

'American Horror Story: Coven' Adds Three Witches
As is creator Ryan Murphy's way, it is not confirmed that the recently booked actresses are going to be witches in the upcoming season of American Horror Story, but with a subtitle of Coven and a largely female cast, I'm playing the odds here.

First up is Angela Bassett, best known for her Academy Award-nominated portrayal of Tina Turner in What's Love Got to Do With It. Films that FEARnet readers are likely more familiar with include Critters 4, Innocent Blood, Boyz in the Hood, and Malcolm X.

 

 

 

 

Next is Patti LuPone. Best known for her work on Broadway (she won Tonys for roles in Evita and Gypsy and starred in Broadway productions of Sweeny Todd and Les Miserables, among others), LuPone has appeared in films (Summer of Sam and Heist to name a few) and had memorable guest roles on TV shows like 30 Rock.

Women in Horror '13: Q+A with Adele Hartley of Scotland's Dead by Dawn Festival
It's no secret to anyone who knows me that I am a big fan of Scotland, and that I would move there in a heartbeat if we didn't have these dumb things called international borders. Edinburgh in particular is a breathtaking city that still has architectural remnants of the middle ages, with windy little cobbled streets, claustrophobic closes and even a castle atop the hill right in city centre.

It's also a city proud of its morbid history bodysnatchers Burke and Hare have a bar and a strip club named after them (not to mention a booklet made out of Burke's skin on display at the Royal College of Surgeons), a sprawling, noticably lumpy city park sits atop masses of graves left over from plague times, and the ghost-walk business is booming.

Some guy named “John Landis” on some chat show called “Inside Horror”!

What are these things? Find out inside!

For a couple of seasons, friend-of-the-site Elric Kane produced and directed a little weekly horror-themed internet chat show called “This Week In…Horror!” (You might remember a certain Tfh-themed episode featuring Our Fearless Leader.) That show went away, mutated, transmogrified and grew up a bit to become Inside Horror. Elric’s back producing and directing and, now, hosting (alongside genre press mistresses Staci Layne Wilson and Jenna Busch).

Their very first episode aired live and on the internet last night, featuring premier Tfh guru/legend John Landis. Ostensibly there to promote his really incredible book — have I mentioned this before? It’s really lovely — Monsters in the Movies, the topics wander and the conversation’s freewheeling, ranging from the scene in Innocent Blood that Tomas Alfredson ripped off in Let The Right One In to darkness of the ending of Weird Science and

Entertainer of the Year 2011: The Cast of 'Harry Potter' at No. 2!
It makes sense that the enduring and magical "Harry Potter" franchise would rank high on our Entertainer of the Year list (last year the cast made No. 1!) The books and movies have been entertaining people for over a decade.

With the release of the first book, "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" in 1997, author Jk Rowling spurred the imagination of millions with her fantastical world of witches and wizards, centering on one boy who survives
