    Remembering Michael Winner, 1935-2013

    by: Chris Alexander on: 2013-01-21 18:07:23

    I considered Michael Winner a friend. Not a friend in the sense that he’d loan me 50 bucks when I was short on rent, but a friend in that his kindness, openness, advice and cheerful nature were inspiring to me, personally.

    I like to think I perhaps brightened his day on occasion as well. Maybe there was a mutual appreciation; I’m not quite sure. All I know is that learning of his passing this morning (he died at age 77 after an illness), I feel a great sense of loss. All fans of old-fashioned, unironic, no-nonsense genre filmmaking should too.

    92YTribeca Tribute to Bride of Frankenstein star Elsa Lanchester!

    by: Kier-La Janisse on: 2013-01-19 22:48:05

    As horror fans, you know her as the iconic BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, perhaps as the cheery boozer in Robert Siodmak’s THE SPIRAL STAIRCASE or WILLARD’s grouchy matriarch in the 1971 film of the same name. But how well do you really know Elsa Lanchester?

    EXCL Video: Don Coscarelli on “JOHN DIES AT THE END,” Part Three

    by: FANGORIA Staff on: 2013-01-19 01:06:41

    It’s not easy being a ’70s-era horror director and trying to
    get films made today when all Hollywood seems to be interested in is remaking
    your past gory glories. Following his 2002 sleeper sensation BUBBA HO-TEP and after
    helming the scariest episode of MASTERS OF HORROR (2005’s INCIDENT ON AND OFF A MOUNTAIN ROAD),
    writer/director Don Coscarelli continues his career renaissance with his latest
    movie JOHN DIES AT THE END (now on VOD;
    beginning its multi-city theatrical rollout on January 25 from Magnet Releasing;
    see list here),
    which has been killing audiences since its debut at Sundance last year.

    EXCL Video: Don Coscarelli on “JOHN DIES AT THE END,” Part Two

    by: FANGORIA Staff on: 2013-01-17 23:43:27

    First lesson when casting acting newcomers in your new genre
    flick: surround them with acting pros like Oscar nominee Paul Giamatti and
    fright faves such as Clancy Brown (THE BRIDE, HIGHLANDER, upcoming
    HELLBENDERS), Doug Jones (HELLBOY, PAN’S LABYRINTH) and the legendary Tall Man
    himself, Angus Scrimm. That’s what writer/director Don Coscarelli did with his
    latest movie JOHN DIES AT THE END (now on VOD;
    beginning its multi-city theatrical rollout on January 25 from Magnet Releasing;
    see list here),
    which has been killing audiences since its debut at Sundance last year.

    Jessica Chastain Saves the Drama for “MAMA”

    by: Trevor Parker on: 2013-01-16 21:28:13

    It’s not often that an actress rides into
    the motion picture world on the crest of as much hype and critical adoration as
    has Jessica Chastain. Rarer still is when that actress entirely validates the
    hype surrounding her, as Chastain most definitely has, garnering her second
    Oscar nomination in as many years. With her ruthless CIA operative in ZERO DARK
    THIRTY currently ruling the box office, audiences can catch a different side of
    Chastain’s acclaimed range when director Andy Muschietti’s ghostly fable MAMA
    his theaters this Friday.

    Remembering Patty Shepard (1945-2013)

    by: Stephan Segantini on: 2013-01-16 03:04:01

    Fans of European horror have long been mesmerized by a pair of stunning, shining eyes which could simultaneously transmit mystery, seduction and a strength that were capable of charming anyone…even a werewolf. Last week we lost  those eyes, those that belonged to Patty Shepard, star of such films as the cult Paul Naschy flicks WEREWOLF VERSUS THE VAMPIRE WOMAN (a.k.a. NIGHT OF WALPURGIS, 1971) or in the (unfairly) despised Assignment Terror (1970).

    EXCL Video Interview: Don Coscarelli on “JOHN DIES AT THE END,” Part One

    by: FANGORIA Staff on: 2013-01-15 14:05:01

    Yes, horror hounds, there is life after PHANTASM. A decade
    after his sleeper sensation BUBBA HO-TEP, JOHN DIES AT THE END (now on VOD; beginning its multi-city theatrical rollout on January 25 from Magnet Releasing; see list here)
    proves again there’s more to genre fave Don Coscarelli’s cinematic career than
