    Trailer: South American 3D Neo-Giallo, “NECROPHOBIA”

In just recent months, we’ve brought word of the unique homage SONNO PROFONDO (aka DEEP SLEEP) from Argentina, as well as Italian-horror infused high school flick MALDITO AMOR from Chile. You can now add the very neat-looking, also Argentinian NECROPHOBIA 3D—the latest film from JENNIFER’S SHADOW (aka CHRONICLE OF THE RAVEN) director Daniel de la Vega—to the list.

    A New “ROSEMARY’S BABY” Aims to Set Itself Apart

    On Sunday May 11, NBC unveils the first half of a new, four hour miniseres adaptation of Ira Levin’s ROSEMARY’S BABY. In 1968, horror showman William Castle produced Roman Polanski’s highly regarded 1968 film of Levin’s book in an attempt to prove to Hollywood, and to moviegoers, that he could produce a “classy” horror movie. Best known for B-movies like THE TINGLER (1959) and HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1958), among others, Castle yearned for respectability. The drive-in fare he produced (complete with gimmicks such as wiring theater seats for electricity in order to “shock” viewers as he did with Tingler) were moneymakers, but Castle was never taken seriously as a filmmaker.

    Brian De Palma’s “SISTERS” (Arrow Blu-ray Review)

    SISTERS just might be the most important movie in Brian De Palma’scareer. Though his first feature MURDER A LA MOD laid down hints of what was to come, SISTERS was the first time De Palma ditched his satirical, political, Godard-influenced romps in favor of self-consciously accepting Hitchcock’s crown as a new master of suspense. That’s not to say that the movie is serious, of course. De Palma’s deep appreciation and understanding of Hitchcock extended to Hitch’s dark humor and refined sense of irony. So, what Pauline Kael’s once famously referred to as De Palma’s “alligator grin” is in full effect.
