‘The Walking Dead’ will finally cross over with ‘Fear,’ says Robert Kirkman


Ever since The Walking Dead got its spinoff (aka prequel) series, Fear the Walking Dead, fans and reporters alike have been badgering the producers behind the two shows about the possibility of a crossover — and apparently said badgering has finally paid off.

“There are two Walking Dead shows, I’m not gonna name them… There is one character that is going to go from one show, that I will not name… and appear in the other show, which I will not name,” series creator Robert Kirkman revealed at the show’s New York Comic Con panel. “So what does that mean, because these timelines, how does that work? Are we going to see an interesting backstory of a Walking Dead character showing up in Fear the Walking Dead, or are we going to see a Fear the Walking Dead character show up in The Walking Dead, and see a future version of a character? What’s gonna happen? Is it going to be something completely different than that? Who knows?” Read more…

Pupi Avati’s Revenge of the Dead Returns in October

Revenge of the Dead

Revenge of the Dead: Italian horror movie getting re-release on October

Revenge of the Dead was a bit of an anomaly for us ’80s rental kids who lived to watch Eurohorror. It was packaged to appear like a kissing cousin to Lucio Fulci’s notorious The Gates of Hell (City of the Living Dead) and the countless other meaty Italian splatter ghoul movies that ended up on VHS and were the exotic, revolting alternative to comparitively pedestrian American horror. But Revenge of the Dead was really odd…

Directed by Pupi Avati (the mesmerizing The House of the Laughing Windows) and originally released as Zeder, the movie is a bizarre hybird of horror, sci-fi and supernatural weirdness is not your usual zombie flick, but a thought-provoking puzzler steeped in ancient mysteries. Stefano, a budding novelist, (Gabrielle Lavia, Beyond The Door, Deep Red) receives the innocent gift of a used typewriter from his wife on their wedding anniversary. While changing the ribbon, he discovers the typed imprint of writing left by the previous owner. Fascinated by this startling essay, Stefano uncovers the experiments of scientist Paolo Zeder whose claims of places where death ceases to exist intrigue the young writer. Obsessed with finding the truth about Zeder’s theories, Stefano is led on a terrifying journey where he is confronted with an occult conspiracy to reanimate the dead!

Revenge of the Dead is a movie I’m dying to reevaluate and now you can too because Code Red (via Kino Lorber) is now re-releasing this terrifying tale in HD in a reasonably priced edition. The film streets on October 17th and retails for an SRP of $ 19.95.

Have you seen Revenge of the Dead? Are you an Italian horror movie freak? Will you be picking this one up?

The Morning Watch: How ‘Top Gun’ Saved Home Video, ‘Dawn of the Dead’ Video Essay & More

Top Gun 2 Title

(The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.)

In this edition, a video essay explains how the release of Top Gun on VHS ended up saving the home video industry. Plus, another video essay takes a look at how Zack Snyder‘s remake of Dawn of the Dead has all of the trademarks we’ve come to expect from the filmmaker, and singer Natasha Bedingfield gives Strangers Things the cheesy theme song it deserves.

First up, Cracked takes a look at how the release of Top Gun on VHS ended up saving the home video industry at a time when video tapes cost upwards of $ 80. But when Top Gun was released, it sold for only $ 26.95, and it changed the entire home video industry for better and forever.

Next up, a video essay from Ryan Hollinger looks back at Zack Snyder’s remake of Dawn of the Dead and how it was an earlier indicator of the kind of movies we would get from the filmmaker. The AV Club acknowledges Snyder’s movies as “overwrought, try-hard pseudo-auteurism and as pointlessly violent, incomprehensible messes,” and the video essay looks at how Dawn of the Dead lives up to that reputation.

Following the new Game of Thrones theme song by Michael Bolton, the folks at Honest Trailers gave some other Emmy nominees their own cheesy theme songs as if the shows existed in the 1990s. This time, it’s Stranger Things getting a new theme song sung by none other than Natasha Bedingfield.

Studio Ghibli is Back from the Dead! Miyazaki is Developing New Film

Studio Ghibli

Can you believe it?! I don’t know if I do?! Reports are going around that Studio Ghibli has re-opened its doors, started hiring a new team of animators, and will soon start working on a brand new project. It was massive, heartbreaking news a fear years ago when legendary animator Hayao Miyazaki announced his retirement (after finishing The Wind Rises in 2013) and then subsequently the studio he helped start, Studio Ghibli, decided to stop making new films and instead focus on monetizing their old filmography. In the last few years, Miyazaki kept himself busy by making an animated short film for the Ghibli Museum in Tokyo. But now the studio is back from the dead and Miyazaki has a new idea for a film, which is what this is about. ›››

‘The Walking Dead’ Season 8 trailer is all action and a whole lot of of hope


After weathering criticism that Season 7 of The Walking Dead was unrelentingly bleak, Season 8 of AMC’s zombie hit looks like a very different animal, at least judging from the first trailer released at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday afternoon. 

While Negan is still sauntering around swinging his bat and warning people that they’re about to “shit their pants,” the tone of the trailer is one of defiance, as Rick Grimes and his allies take the fight to the Saviors, with the Alexandrians joining forces with the residents of Hilltop and the Kingdom to defeat the big bad.

There are some moments in the trailer that hint at a little more levity than previous seasons — including a somewhat innocent moment of a walker trying to catch a plastic bag caught on a tree — but much of the footage focuses on Rick and Maggie rallying their troops with motivational speeches… and Daryl blowing shit up.  Read more…

Academy Award Winner Martin Landau Dead at 89

Oscar Winner Martin Landau Dead at 89

Martin Landau, the Oscar-winning character actor who has worked with acclaimed directors like Alfred Hitchcock, Woody Allen, and Tim Burton, has died at the age of 89.

He is perhaps best known by modern audiences for his role as the down-on-his-luck Bela Lugosi in the black comedy Ed Wood, the Burton-directed biopic of the titular director of cult “bad” movies like Plan 9 from Outer Space. Landau won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for the role, after being nominated twice before for roles in Tucker: The Man and His Dream and Crimes and Misdemeanors.

Landau died on Saturday of “unexpected complications” following a short hospitalization at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, his publicist confirmed.

Landau had an impressive 58-year career in Hollywood that spanned both film and television, including a regular role in the original Mission: Impossible TV series, which he starred in for three seasons. After leaving the CBS series in 1969 due to contract dispute, Landau struggled to find his footing in the film industry, despite an early successful role as a threatening henchman in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1959 thriller North by Northwest.

It wasn’t until decades later when he was cast as financier Abe Karatz, the partner to the titular automaker Preston Tucker (Jeff Bridges) in Francis Ford Coppola’s 1987 biopic Tucker: The Man and His Dream, that Landau had a late-career breakthrough. Landau went on to receive an Oscar nomination and a Golden Globe win for the role, and even more award-nominated roles in the years that followed.

“Tucker resurrected me,” he told the Guardian in 2012. “Before that I did several films that should be turned into toothpicks. I was being offered, you know, professional bad guys in the evil business, total comic-strip stuff. When I got Tucker I thought, ‘Thank God, a human being.’”

Landau went on to receive another Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination in Woody Allen’s 1989 offbeat comedy Crimes and Misdemeanors, playing the murderous opthamologist Judah Rosenthal. But it wasn’t until Ed Wood in 1994 that Landau got the elusive golden statuette. His performance as the washed-up horror icon Bela Lugosi struck a chord with him and audiences, and remains one of his most memorable performances to date.

“Lugosi … had a palpable intensity and a presence that you can’t buy,” Landau said before Oscar win. “But this fuckin’ town shat on him … And I can relate to that. I’ve seen it happen a lot. I’ve seen it happen to me.”

Born in Brooklyn on June 20, 1928, Landau gave up a career as cartoonist at the New York Daily News to pursue acting.

While his film debut was in a small Korean war drama called Pork Chop Hill, Landau shot to fame when he appeared as one of the henchmen pursuing Cary Grant in North by Northwest. His sinister eyes and glossy looks caught the eyes of producers and directors, and he went on to appear in bit roles in Cleopatra (1963) and The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965).

He found success instead on TV, winning Emmy nominations for his three seasons on Mission: Impossible, and making guest appearances on Gunsmoke, The Twilight Zone and The Alfred Hitchcock Hour. Famously, he turned down the role of Spock in the original Star Trek series, which eventually went to Leonard Nimoy. Landau said he doesn’t regret it however, saying “Lenny (Nimoy) was better suited for” the role.

After his Oscar win for Ed Wood, Landau took on several  character roles in high-profile films, including City Hall alongside Al Pacino, the Jim Carrey film The Majestic, and the Harrison Ford cop comedy Hollywood Homicide. He collaborated with Burton a few more times, including the animated film Frankenweenie. In 2001, Landau was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

He is survived by his daughters Susie (a writer-producer) and Juliet (an actress known for Buffy the Vampire Slayer) from his marriage to Barbara Bain. Other survivors include sons-in-law Roy and Deverill, sister Elinor, granddaughter Aria, and godson Dylan.

‘Night of the Living Dead’ Director and Horror Legend George Romero Dead at 77

george romero dead

George A. Romero, the director of Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, and Day of the Dead, has passed away at the age of 77. The creator of the modern zombie movie, the often imitated but never matched filmmaker still looms large as one of the most important horror filmmakers of all time.

According to a statement released by his longtime producing partner, Peter Grunwald, Romero died in his sleep following a “brief but aggressive battle with lung cancer.” He was listening to the score for his favorite movie, John Ford’s The Quiet Man, and was with his wife, Suzanne Desrocher Romero, and his daughter, Tina Romero, at the time of his passing.

Born on February 4, 1940 in New York City, Romero’s first film as a director sent shockwaves through the genre movie world that are still being felt to this day. Shot in black and what and on a small budget, 1968’s Night of the Living Dead helped set the template for the modern independent horror movie – a young and hungry filmmaker pulls himself up his bootstraps and makes a scary, smart, and relevant experience. The film created an entire new subgenre of horror, inspiring blatant imitations and respectful odes to this day. The success of The Walking Dead on AMC began with Romero’s contributions to the mere concept of the cinematic zombie.

Romero remained outspoken about the horror staple he helped create, later saying of The Walking Dead: “Basically it’s just a soap opera with a zombie occasionally. I always used the zombie as a character for satire or a political criticism, and I find that missing in what’s happening now.”

Night of the Living Dead used a zombie apocalypse as a background for simmering chamber piece about racial tension and features one of the horror genre’s first great, black heroes, played by the fierce Duane Jones. His politically tinged zombie tales continued with 1978’s Dawn of the Dead, which took on America’s commercialism with the force of a crowbar to an undead skull, and 1985’s Day of the Dead, which drips with despair and paranoia as it explores the apocalypse from a military bunker.

Romero found it difficult to separate himself from the genre he popularized and his later zombie movies find him attempting to find something new to say while treading turf that even he admitted was familiar. 2005’s Land of the Dead, 2007’s Diary of the Dead, and 2009’s Survival of the Dead are more interesting than most zombie movies, sometimes feeling more like bold (and sometimes not successful) experiments.

Even when he wasn’t tackling the undead, Romero continued to build his career on horror. 1973’s The Crazies is a another politically charged horror tale and 1982’s Creepshow (the first and not the last time he would work in the world of author Stephen King) remain well-regarded One of his few non-horror films has earned a devoted cult following – 1981’s Knightriders, about a medieval reenactment troupe, has received acclaim in the decades since it came and went in theaters.

Even if George Romero just made the first modern zombie movies and created a formula that would be repeatedly borrowed and reinvented for 50 years, he’d be remembered as a horror icon. But George Romero did all of that while making thoughtful, funny, scary, and relevant movies that wielded shock factor like a fine blade. His work was pointed and political, even as it was inspiring generations of moviemakers, make-up artists, and monster fans. His thumbprint lurks on film and television, clear as day to anyone with access to a movie theater or a television. He will be missed.
