Notre Dame Cathedral: 14 Classic Movie Scenes at the Paris Landmark (Photos)

  • The Wrap
A fire broke out on the roof of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris Sunday. Shortly thereafter, the flames caused the spire to collapse and spread to one of its landmark tower. The cathedral spokesman shared the heartbreaking news: “Everything is burning, nothing will remain from the frame.”

The 850-year-old cathedral is a landmark in history and on celluloid. It’s the primary backdrop for the classic 1939 film “The Hunchback of Notre-Dame,” as well as Disney’s 1996 animated feature remake. It has also appeared in the Oscar-nominated “Midnight in Paris” and 2004’s “Van Helsing.”

Here is a list of films either set or shot at the famed Cathedral.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame” (1939)

There have been many versions of this 19th century tale by Victor Hugo, but this 1939 classic with Charles Laughton starring as Quasimodo and Maureen O’Hara playing the object of his love, Esmeralda, differed from the novel

The trio of new baddies include Red Dart (pictured), who’ll be played by “Whistler” alum Holly Elissa and is described as “a ruthless and precise killer”; Kodiak (Michael Jonsson of “Van Helsing”), a “beast of a man with brute force”; and Silencer (played by Miranda Edwards of “The Magicians” and “Orphan Black”), who’s “a master of stealth.”

Bram Stoker’S Dracula – 25 Years of Horror and Tragedy

  • DailyDead
Bram Stoker’s Dracula is a modern horror masterpiece, and one that too often goes overlooked. A film that is horrifying, intriguing, and astoundingly beautiful, Francis Ford Coppola took Stoker’s masterwork and breathed new, undead life into it in 1992. It recently hit its 25th anniversary, and the film remains a classic piece of horror cinema.

The film opens in 1462, with Vlad Dracula (Gary Oldman) returning from war against the Turks to find that his beloved wife, Elisabeta (Winona Ryder) has killed herself upon receiving false news of his defeat and death. When the priest tells him that her soul cannot be saved and will be forever damned by her suicide, Vlad renounces God in a fit of rage. He desecrates his small chapel, stabbing a stone cross and drinking the blood that begins to ebb from it, embracing eternal life and damnation at the hands of a merciless god.

Dark Universe: the undignified death of a cinematic universe

Ryan Lambie Nov 14, 2017

It's fair to say that The Mummy didn't ignite the multi-movie franchise expected of it. We look at the death of the Dark Universe...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for 2017's The Mummy.

See related  Star Wars: Rogue One review Star Wars: Rogue One - what did you think?

For some, The Mummy's marketing campaign began not with a bang, but a squeaky Tom Cruise scream. In December 2016, an unfinished trailer for the then-forthcoming film appeared online, and soon went viral: lacking music and proper sound effects, the promo's otherwise dramatic visuals suddenly seemed comically threadbare. A violent plane crash unfolded with only a few chunks of dialogue and an amusing yelp from co-star Annabelle Wallis; Tom Cruise stumbled about in zero-gravity with only a few apologetic 'oofs' and 'eeks' for company.

Steps were taken to have the leaked trailer removed, but as is the way of the web,

Halloween 2017: Siblings & Scares Double Feature – Mom’S Got A Date With A Vampire and Hocus Pocus

  • DailyDead
[To get you into the spooky spirit, the Daily Dead team is spotlighting double features that we think would be fun to watch this Halloween season. Check here for more double feature recommendations and other Halloween 2017 coverage.]

There’s nothing quite like an outside threat to bring a family together, especially when that threat is of the undead variety. Siblings may not always get along, but when your sister’s soul is sought by a coven of witches, or when your mom is eyed as an eternal bride by a coffin-dwelling creep, it’s time to take those Sister Sledge lyrics to heart and become a family that can overcome anything—including wicked spells and sharp fangs. Set on respective fateful nights where the future of a homestead hangs in the balance and its up to siblings to save it, Mom’s Got a Date with a Vampire and Hocus Pocus are family-friendly films that make for a great double feature during the Halloween season.

Perhaps the less-known of the two films, Mom’s Got a Date with a Vampire will likely ring a nostalgic bell for

Robert Englund Says He's Too Old to Play Freddy Krueger Again

Robert Englund Says He's Too Old to Play Freddy Krueger Again
When it comes to horror movies, A Nightmare on Elm Street is definitely on the Mount Rushmore of the genre, featuring one of the biggest horror villains ever. Freddy Krueger is a legend and he has been portrayed by Robert Englund in nearly every movie. But sadly, it looks like the actor has given up on the thought of ever revisiting the horror classic. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Robert Englund confirmed that he will never play Freddy Krueger on the big screen again.

It's hard to believe, but Robert Englund is 70-years old and just doesn't think that he can pull off playing Freddy anymore. Freddy Krueger is a physically demanding character and Englund doesn't think that his body, specifically his back and spine, can handle it at his age. He had this to say.

"I'm too old to do another Freddy now. If I do a
