    KISS Co-founders Simmons and Stanley Remember Gordon Hessler

    Legendary genre journeyman director Gordon Hessler (pictured above with Ray Harryhausen) has passed at the age of 83. Hessler, a German born, British-blooded and educated, Hollywood-based filmmaker, is most notable to FANGORIA readers for his interesting post-Roger Corman work for American International Pictures, with the failed new “Poe Cycle” kick-starters THE OBLONG BOX (with Christopher Lee and Vincent Price), MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE (with Jason Robards and Herbert Lom) and the Poe flavored Vincent Price classic CRY OF THE BANSHEE, not to mention the utterly mad horror all-star opus SCREAM AND SCREAM AGAIN starring Price, Lee and Peter Cushing.

Starring Christoph Waltz as a computer genius tasked with solving an equation that would explain the meaning of life, the neon-soaked, industrial world evokes many of Gilliam’s past triumphs while appearing to embody his trademark, biting dark humor. Waltz is also in good company, as Peter Stormare, Tilda Swinton, David Thewlis, Melanie Thierry and Ben Wishaw all will inhabit the strange world of ZERO THEOREM.

    “A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT” (Sundance Movie Review)

    In Bad City, evil is relative. The fictional Iranian town, which exists only in a dreamy, anamorphic black-and-white, houses a small population which runs the spectrum of its namesake quality. And who’s to say who is worse than anyone else? Writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour is. Is a sleazy, coked-up, aggressive pimp any more terrible than who he employs? Is the silent vampire stalking the streets any less terrible because we love her?  Well, yes, but not in light of their actions.

    When Frankenstein (almost) met Selene…

    After its tepid first-weekend box office (an estimated $8.275 million and a sixth-place finish), it doesn’t look like I, FRANKENSTEIN will spawn a new franchise à la its producers’ UNDERWORLD. However, one of the creators of both series revealed to Fango that a seed was once planted for a crossover between the two.
