    BD Horror News - CA Readers: Experience The Bloody Insanity Of Peter Jackson's 'Dead Alive' In Theaters This FRIDAY!

    Bloody Disgusting is proud to present a special theatrical screening of Peter Jackson's Dead Alive this coming Friday night (movie starts at 11:55PM) at the Nuart Theater in Los Angeles (11272 Santa Monica Blvd.) The showing will be of an actual print of the New Zealand zombie flick that's widely considered the goriest of all-time, and is often listed along such classics as Night of the Living Dead and Zombi 2 as one of the greatest zombie flicks ever.

    In Jackson's 1992 classic, "a young man's mother is bitten by a "rat monkey." She gets sick and dies, at which time she comes back to life, killing and eating dogs, nurses, friends, and neighbors."

    Tickets are still available here. Come join us for some bloody chaos!

    Some interesting Cinefamily events...



    FRIDAY NIGHT FRIGHTS presents:
    Dr. Giggles (star Larry Drake in person, 20th Anniversary screening!)
    Friday, April 27th | 11:59pm

    Dr. Giggles is a film that has it all -- mirth, murder, medical puns -- which makes it all the more perplexing that it wasn't declared a cultural touchstone upon its release in 1992. Starring Emmy-winning Larry L.A. Law Drake in the tittering, titular role, Dr. Giggles is the quaint story of a small town doctor who just wants to see his patients well and rested -- in the morgue! This gleeful and gory late entry in the slasher pantheon is both hilarious and at times shockingly grotesque -- and is well-deserving of a clinical re-evaluation on this, the 20th anniversary of its release. So put on your best blood-soaked scrubs and grab your sharpest scapel, 'cause the doctor is inSANE! Dr. Giggles star Larry Drake will be here for a Q&A after the film!
    Dir. Manny Coto, 1992, 35mm, 96 min. (35mm print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive)

    and...




    T.J. MILLER'S HANGOVER MATINEE:

    What’s the best way to watch an old-time movie? Why, recovering from a hangover, sofa snugglin’ -- and a bit of the hair of the dog that bit ya! Comprehension and belief in this undeniable truth (movies + mimosas + madness = happy) was a key point of agreement between us and our newest family member, comedian TJ Miller. Together, we introduce to you to the “Hangover Matinee”: a monthly brunch complete with food, coffee, booze, and live entertainment -- all for anyone who loves old movies in the early afternoon.

    For our first Hangover Matinee, we’ve got the captivatingly strange 1933 version of Alice In Wonderland: proof that “weird” wasn’t a recent invention of the late twentieth century! Plumbing depths of the uncanny valley barely glimpsed before or since, this one encased some truly inspired casting (W.C. Fields as Humpty Dumpty! A prehensile Cary Grant as Mock Turtle! Gary Cooper as the White Knight!) in heavy, elaborate costumes, and makeup that rendered its characters playful but monstrous, as Lewis Carroll might have intended! Paramount spared no expense choreographing the dream world for this lavish production, in which a moon-eyed Alice navigates through a Wonderland so beautifully grotesque that each frame shivers with delight.
    Alice In Wonderland Dir. Norman Z. McLeod, 1933, 35mm, 76 min.


    Alice In Wonderland (1933)!
    Saturday, April 28th | noon

    Hero Complex Film Festival To Screen ‘Shaun of the Dead’, ‘Wall-E’, ‘Robocop’ & More | Geeks of Doom

    Hero Complex Film Festival To Screen ‘Shaun of the Dead’, ‘Wall-E’, ‘Robocop’ & More

    Posted by eelyajekiM | April 26th, 2012 at 12:30 pm



    San Diego Comic-Con and WonderCon may be the greatest gathering of heroes, villains, and all other pop culture-related shows, but it’s the Hero Complex that’s the one true geek-related film festival. Since its inception in 2009, the LA Times’ Hero Complex Film Festival – lead by LA Times writer Geoff Boucher – has screened films like Batman Begins, Star Trek, the first two Iron Man films, and Dick Tracy.

    Now, the list of films that will be screened during the festival has been released and it’s quite a compilation of geek favorites.


    It will all start off with a zombie-filled day on Friday, May 18th, with Dawn of the Dead featuring director Zack Snyder and The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, then Shaun of the Dead featuring director Edgar Wright in person. Actor Peter Weller will present a screening of Robocop on May 19th, which will be followed by A Clockwork Orange with Malcolm McDowell and Rainn Wilson taking part in a Super screening. Attendees will head to the stars on Sunday, May 20th as John Carter director Andrew Stanton will present attendees with a screening of Wall-E and a special preview of Brave. This will be followed by screening of Serenity with star Nathan Fillion.

    LA Times members will be able to purchase discounted tickets starting now. Tickets for the general public go on sale at 10am Thursday, April 26 at latimes.com/herocomplexfilmfest. Of course there will be a limited amount of tickets to those who want to attend the entire event.

    I have to say, I am rather excited to see the variety of films being screened at this year’s Hero Complex Film Festival. Hopefully there will be a few more bills added to the slate.

    The “Cabal Cut” Of ‘Nightbreed’ To Screen In Los Angeles June 10th! Check Out The Trailer! | | Bloody DisgustingBloody Disgusting


    The “director’s cut” of Clive Barker’s Nightbreed has been a highly sought-after and highly intangible experience for horror fans ever since the film’s release over two decades ago. And while those seeking it out may not have crossed the finish line quite yet, there’s now a “Cabal Cut” which may be the closest we ever get to Barker’s original vision. And it’s playing LA’s New Beverly Cinema on June 10th, hosted by Days of the Dead.

    “In 2009 Seraphim’s Mark Miller contacted Morgan Creek and found out that there may well be more to the Myth than anyone had thought. Two European encoded VHS tapes were discovered and sent to Phil and Sarah Stokes, who run Clive Barker’s website, Revelations. They viewed the tapes and saw what nobody had seen in almost 2 decades; additional Nightbreed footage. Phil and Sarah transferred the footage to DVD and, with Clive’s approval, announced to the world that missing footage for Clive’s film had been found. Inspired to see Clive’s original vision come to light, filmmaker Russell Cherrington, longtime friend of Clive Barker and Seraphim, took the DVD back to England and, working with editor Jimmi Johnson and Clive Barker’s original Script, created the new cut ofNightbreed composited from two the VHS sources and the original Warner Brothers DVD. The original cinema release of Nightbreed was fused with the workprint to create The Cabal Cut.”

    Head to Occupy Midian for more details
    Apologies for the double post. Worth it.

    Get Abominable With Dr. Phibes (LA Screening/Contest) | CHUD.com

    Hey there Los Angeles Fright fans! Time for another Friday Night Frights! (like us on Facebook, if you dare!)

    Vincent Price mutha****as!

    Ever since we screened the Price episode of Night Gallery as a lead-in to the original Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, my cohort Sebastian and I have been itching to do a full Vincent Price movie. And the time has come. This Friday, May 25th, we’ll be screening one of Price’s finest, weirdest films: The Abominable Dr. Phibes! As always, the screening will be at midnight @ The Cinefamily in Los Angeles.

    Quoth the FNF power blurb:

    Death is the ultimate trip, so won’t you come groove on the vibes of Dr. Phibes? Horror icon Vincent Price is known for plenty of savage, spooky and shocking roles, but none are as far-out as his titular turn in The Abominable Dr. Phibes! In this epitome of cool U.K. horror from director Robert Fuest (The Final Programme, And Soon The Darkness), Price plays a phreaky phantom of the opera who’s got a bone to pick with the stuffy British doctors who allowed his beloved wife to die on the operating table. With the aid of his hot chick sidekick and his bizarro clockwork band, Phibes wreaks vengeance on the M.D.s with wacky and gruesome deaths inspired by — biblical plagues? Fuest imbues the ‘70s psychedelic proceedings with visual flair and gorgeous production design, making this an abominable in-theater experience you can’t miss!
    Awesome movie with one of the greatest horror icons ever.

    My weekly Cinefamily email...

    There's so much stuff happening this week that a bullet-pointed rundown should do the trick to start:


    - May has marked the passing of two of Cinefamily's heroes: writer/illustrator Maurice Sendak ("Where The Wild Things Are"), and Adam Yauch (of the Beastie Boys). This week, we have free-admission tribute shows to both of these cultural icons.

    - It's a double dose of Memorial Day BBQ action! The Monday holiday itself marks the epic return of The Five Minutes Game -- and, the day before (Sunday), T.J. Miller's Hangover Matinee is now also a Brunch-a-Q!

    - Queer/Art/Film, the visiting residency from NYC, is back this Friday, with a 35mm screening of John Schlesinger's 1971 classic Sunday Bloody Sunday, presented by groundbreaking filmmaker Lizzie Borden (Born In Flames!) Schlesinger was hot off his Oscar-winning Midnight Cowboy when he directed this definitive '70s statement on "modern love". Check out the trailer here!

    - This coming Tuesday the 29th, Stuart Gordon will be here at the Cinefamily in person for an in-depth Q&A session about the process of bringing his legendary '80s horror film Re-Animator to the stage as...a musical?! Come also meet cast members of the new production, as well as thrill to a screening of the original flick!



    Yours in programming,
    Bret B.

    Saturday Morning Massacre Dispatches Nosey Kids | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    "...and I would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn’t for you meddling kids!. Just how many episodes of "Scooby Doo" ended with that line? And did anyone ever wonder why the criminals were able to bamboozle the entire town and police squad with their schemes only to be foiled by a dog and four stoner kids who rolled into town two days earlier in a van that had to smell like malted hops, bong resin and dog farts? We’ve got some info on a new movie where the meddling kids don't necessarily fare so well.

    Directed by Spencer Parsons and starring Ashley Spillers, Josephine Decker and Jonny Mars, Saturday Morning Massacre follows some meddling paranormal investigators trying to make a buck. From the information we've managed to glean thus far, there is no talking dog in this film.

    Saturday Morning Massacre is currently in post-production, and its official website, titsandaxe.com, will be launching soon. Kudos on my new favorite website name. We'll keep you posted on this one.

    From the Press Release
    Imagine if all the meddling kids from Saturday morning cartoons really did go out and try to solve crimes, uncover murders and get in the middle of really sticky situations. I can assure you they wouldn't get out unscathed...if even alive.

    Synopsis
    In Saturday Morning Massacre a team of amateur paranormal investigators struggle to make ends meet by debunking reports of supernatural incidents. With the group on the verge of bankruptcy, Nancy takes on a case involving rumors of suspicious disappearances and violent deaths linked with the abandoned Kyser schoolhouse. Discounting rumors of satanic practices, the team proceeds, desperately chasing cash and the opportunity to encounter their lives’ work – to catch a real ghost.

    On a tour guided by the local sheriff, the team members learn of the schoolhouse’s gruesome past. Despite his advice to spend the night in a hotel, they decide to stay; they set up their gear and prepare for nightfall. When the sun goes down, the truth comes out: The Kyser house isn’t haunted – it’s inhabited by a sadistic feral family with an insatiable appetite for torture.

    Saturday Morning Massacre is a bloody parody of mystery cartoons and the consequences of meddling with the supernatural. The film stars Ashley Spillers (Slacker 2011), Josephine Decker (IFC Films' Uncle Kent & Autoerotic), Jonny Mars, Adam Tate and Paul Gordon (The Happy Poet) with Heather Kafka (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre '03), Sean Ryan, Wyeth Miller and Sonny Carl Davis (Thelma & Louise, Lonesome Dove).
    Playing at the LA Filmfest...might have to giver her a go.
