‘Memory: The Origins of Alien’ Film Review: A Critical Dive Into Cinema’s Most Famous Chest Wound

‘Memory: The Origins of Alien’ Film Review: A Critical Dive Into Cinema’s Most Famous Chest Wound
Alexandre O. Phillippe’s “Memory: The Origins of Alien” isn’t just a documentary about the making of “Alien”; it’s also an act of film criticism. The new film explores the artistic and cultural traditions that led to the sci-fi-horror masterpiece, characterizing the Ridley Scott film as the ultimate culmination of every nightmare that came before it.

And although Phillippe’s documentary oversells its thesis — and suffers from glaring omissions — it’s a thoughtful love letter to a fascinating classic.

Ridley Scott’s “Alien,” written by Dan O’Bannon with a co-story credit by Ronald Shusett, is one of the most celebrated films of its kind. It’s a terrifying movie, set in space, with a crew of working-class joes and janes encountering unbelievable, Lovecraftian monsters that use the humans’ bodies as incubators. The film has been critically analyzed from top to bottom over the years, exploring the innovative production design,

John Carpenter Explains Why Modern Horror Films Aren’t Scary For Him

It’s hard to think of a more influential and iconic horror filmmaker than “The Master Of Horror” himself: John Carpenter. Not only is he a multi-disciplined craftsman – he’s known to direct, produce, write and score his own pics – but he’s also comfortable working within a variety of contrasting genres.

That all being said, it’s safe to say that the horror genre is the American filmmaker’s real bread and butter, hence his illustrious nickname. Though Carpenter has been relatively quiet as of late – the last flick he directed was 2010’s The Ward, while the last movie he produced and scored was last year’s brilliant Halloween reboot – he did sit down recently to answer some questions regarding the modern horror genre as a whole, and here’s what he had to share:

“No, I see the plumbing,” Carpenter said when asked if modern horror movies scare him these days.

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.

Blu-ray Review: Sleepwalkers Collector’s Edition

  • DailyDead
I remember seeing Sleepwalkers as a kid when it first hit HBO, and wondering why I was watching a movie where a cat monster had sex with his mom and tried to suck the lifeforce out of his girlfriend. At the time, I wasn’t quite old enough to appreciate where writer Stephen King and director Mick Garris were going with all of this, but when I popped in Scream Factory’s new Blu-ray release, I was much more tuned in to the movie’s “creature feature meets Flowers in the Attic” vibe.

Sleepwalkers fits right in with the crazy, melodramatic movies that came out of the early ‘90s, like John Carpenter’s In the Mouth of Madness or Tobe Hooper’s The Mangler. What Garris brings to King’s original screenplay (not based on one of his previous stories) is an ability to blend elements of the morose and

Interview with Sam Neill; talking Sweet Country

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Daniel Goodwin

In his incredible forty year career, legendary Northern Ireland and New Zealand raised actor Sam Neill has starred in a multitude of both mainstream movies and independent films, spanning continents, characters, genres and budget sizes. His latest film, Sweet Country, is an Australian frontier drama inspired by true events that embraces traits from the Western genre.

Australian native Warwick Thornton adapts Steven McGregor and David Tranter’s screenplay which tells the tale of Aboriginal farmhand Sam Kelly (Hamilton Morris), who accidentally kills an irate white bigot tormenting his family. Kelly goes on the run from law enforcement which takes the shape of the affable Sergeant Fletcher (Bryan Brown), accompanied by his Good Samaritan employer Fred Smith (Neill) who wishes to guide Kelly home to safety.

Before Sweet Country, Neill featured in critically acclaimed commercial thrillers (Dead Calm, The Hunt For Red October), prestige dramas (A Cry in the Dark,

It Came From The Tube: Gargoyles (1972)

Pity the poor gargoyle, second tier (at the very least) in horror iconography, resigned to being stone portents in many a film, but never getting their creepy due. This brings us to CBSGargoyles (1972), a TV movie that aimed to rectify that situation and give these mostly forgotten creatures a chance to shine through the filter of a demented Saturday morning vibe.

Originally broadcast as part of The New CBS Tuesday Night Movies, Gargoyles had to contend with the ABC Movie of the Week/Marcus Welby M.D. and NBC’s The Bold Ones: The New Doctors/NBC Reports. (Please, if anyone has seen The Bold Ones, hit me up. I need to know these things.) And Gargoyles did make an impact, earning a Primetime Emmy for Makeup from some new up-and-comer named Stan Winston. (We’ll get to him in a bit.)
