In the Shadow of Christopher Lee's house.....

It is a quiet, end of summer afternoon in London's Belgravia and I am standing outside the childhood home of Sir Christopher Lee at 51 Lower Belgrave St.  The building is very elegant but perhaps appropriately for Hammer Horror's  Prince of Darkness, on the dark side of the street and I shiver a little.  It is always hard to believe a film star has passed away as their screen life never does.  With his beautiful, gravelly voice, distinguished face and wonderful screen persona, Christopher Lee is one of my favourite actors and I had always intended to visit here.   So why now?  Well I am an actor myself getting ready to shoot my next horror feature film 'Host' from the awesome horror director Ray...

NYC Weekend Watch: Outsider Visions of America, Koker Trilogy, ‘Joan the Maid’ & 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.

Film at Lincoln Center

“Another Country: Outsider Visions of America” offers films by Demy, Resnais, Antonioni, Varda and more.

IFC Center

The rather staggering Abbas Kiarostami retrospective continues, with screenings of the Koker trilogy and more.

The Blade Reboot Could Introduce The X-Men Into The McU

Marvel revealed their full Phase 4 line-up at Comic-Con and, though they weren’t on the slate, chief Kevin Feige did confirm that the X-Men would be joining the McU in the not-so-distant future. This leaves us to wonder if the movies set to be released over the next few years will sow the seeds for the arrival of mutantkind in the franchise. It’s certainly possible, and one film that could set up the X-Men is Blade.

Even though the supernatural-themed flick doesn’t seem like the natural place for the mutants to feature, there are a few ways to make it work. The Hollywood Reporter has come up with an intriguing list of ways that Mahershala Ali’s solo movie as the vampire hunter could be the place to fold the X-Men into the McU. For one, THR points out that classic team member Jubilee has been a vampire for a time.

23 Times the Devil Stole the Show

The Devil is the detail that makes so many shows stand out from the crowd.

He is the Tempter, the Manipulator, the Prince of Darkness, with all the style, wit, and chutzpah that those titles entail.

And yeah, he commands the Army of Hell and bears a big grudge against humanity for stealing Daddy God's love away from His angels.

19 Times the Enemy was Closer than We Knew

So whether he is portrayed as a once-off antagonist, the wise-cracking employer, or the Big Bad Evil Guy, he's typically gonna draw focus from (and be far more interesting than) any "heroes" in the picture.

So which Beelzebub lights your Hellfire? Who has been the most iconic Lord of Hell in your opinion? Seriously, to which one would you sell your soul?

John Carpenter Considers Directing Little Horror Film, Big Action Movie or TV Next

John Carpenter Considers Directing Little Horror Film, Big Action Movie or TV Next
Legendary director John Carpenter hasn't directed a movie in almost a decade, but the filmmaker is making it clear he is not officially retired. In a new interview with Collider, Carpenter says he's still open to directing once again. Last year, Carpenter expressed similar thoughts, noting that he wouldn't mind directing another movie again as long as it wasn't The Thing 2. Now, Carpenter says he would particularly like to do another horror or even an adventure movie, but only if it's for a project he would truly enjoy taking part in.

"I don't have one scheduled but I'm working on things. I made a lot of movies and I got burned out and I had to stop for a while. I have to have a life. Circumstance would have to be correct for me to do it again. I'd love to make a little horror film that would be great or a big adventure film.

Pretty Packaging: John Carpenter's Prince Of Darkness

(Ok, seeing as how the releases are so similar, I'm cribbing the first bit of this article from my previous one about Escape From New York...) Back in November, UK distributor StudioCanal released two of their John Carpenter titles with some pretty nifty packaging. They were The Fog and They Live, and each set contained the film in 4K Uhd, two Blu-rays, and the soundtrack CD (always worth it when it's a John Carpenter film...). In December, Escape From New York followed. StudioCanal had some maybe-we-do-maybe-we-don't shenanigans going on about giving Prince of Darkness a similar treatment. They released the film as a standard Blu-ray back in January, but then proceeded to announce a collector's edition similar to the other three. Well, here we are,...

The weather may be getting better outside, and you may be feeling inclined to spend more time outdoors, but I’m about to give genre fans more than two dozen reasons why you should stay home during the month of April, as we have an incredible amount of horror and sci-fi films and series events headed to various digital and VOD platforms over the next few weeks.

Things kick off with Jordan Peele’s new run of The Twilight Zone exclusively on the CBS All Access service on April 1st, and then Netflix is summoning up a whole new batch of brand new episodes of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on April 5th. That same week, we have a bunch of films hitting various platforms, including Glass, Pet Graveyard, The Banished, and Terror 5.

Longtime ’60 Minutes’ Producer Alan Weisman Dies at 68

  • Variety
Alan Weisman, a longtime producer for “60 Minutes” known for his work with Morley Safer, died Thursday at his home in New Jersey of natural causes. He was 68.

Weisman produced some of Safer’s most memorable “60 Minutes” segments, including the 1984 profile of Jackie Gleason and the 1989 jailhouse interview that brought national attention to the plight of Joyce Ann Brown, whose conviction for murder was set aside shortly after the segment aired. Weisman also produced Safer’s interviews with such showbiz notables as Jack Lemmon, Woody Allen and violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg.

Weisman worked on the “60 Minutes II” series that aired on CBS from 1999 to 2005. Most recently he produced segments for the Showtime series “60 Minutes Sports.”

“Alan Weisman was a brilliant writer and sophisticated storyteller. He was also a brutally honest and funny colleague,” said Bill Owens, executive producer of “60 Minutes.” “I have never met anyone prouder to have worked at CBS and ’60 Minutes.

Benedict Cumberbatch to Play Satan in Amazon’s ‘Good Omens’
Neil Gaiman revealed that Benedict Cumberbatch will play Satan in the Amazon series adaptation of “Good Omens.”

Gaiman said that Cumberbatch’s Prince of Darkness will be “a giant, animated Satan” who appears “400 foot high.” The “Sherlock” star will appear in episode 6 of the series, which debuts on May 31.

It was previously announced that Frances McDormand will appear on the show as the voice of God. Additional cameos in the series will include Jack Whitehall, Michael McKean, Miranda Richardson, Jon Hamm, and Nick Offerman.

Based on the novel of the same name by Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. The show is set in 2018 on the brink of an apocalypse as humanity prepares for a final judgment. But Aziraphale (Michael Sheen), a somewhat fussy angel, and Crowley (David Tennant), a demon, aren’t enthusiastic about the end of the world, and can’t seem to find the Antichrist.

Good Omens” was Gaiman’s first novel,

The Plague of the Zombies

The Plague of the Zombies

Blu ray

Shout Factory

1966 / 1.66:1 / 91 Min. / Street Date – January 15, 2019

Starring André Morell, John Carson, Jacqueline Pearce

Cinematography by Arthur Grant

Directed by John Gilling

Propping up one of Hammer Studios’ more visceral double-bills, John Gilling’s The Plague of the Zombies was released alongside Terence Fisher’s Dracula, Prince of Darkness in January of 1966. Fisher’s film was a briskly bloody chapter in the vampire’s long career but Gilling’s melancholy thriller packed a considerably gloomier punch.

The London-born Gilling was a writer/director with a taste for provincial settings, class conflict and horror – social commentary with a gothic twist. That formula was put to the test in his distinctly odd bit of sci-fi agitprop, 1957’s The Gamma People, a cold-war fable about a sinister doctor and an army of mind-controlled juvenile delinquents.

In 1960 Gilling turned that story on its head with The Flesh and the Fiends,
