Kill, Baby…Kill! – The Blu Review

Review by Roger Carpenter

During the first half of the 60’s Mario Bava created several genuine horror classics that remain high-water marks in the genre over a half century later. Films such as Black Sunday (1960), Black Sabbath (1963), The Whip and the Body (1963), and Blood and Black Lace (1964) either pushed the boundaries of horror or helped to establish cinematic tropes still used in modern horror. Always saddled with shoestring budgets and bad deals, Bava nevertheless remained optimistic in the face of his cinematic struggles. A case in point is the troubled production of Kill, Baby…Kill! which ran out of money midway through the shoot. The cast and crew were so loyal to Bava they worked for free to finish the film—a film, by the way, which only had a 30-page script with no dialogue when filming commenced. Bava had the actors make up their own lines, preferring to resolve

And since variety is the spice of life, I tried to give you guys an assortment of different sub-genres, so that you should be able to find something to fit any horror-loving mood! Happy October and happy viewing, everyone!

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Night Evelyn Came Out Of The Grave (1971)

I cherish a good giallo film. For those unfamiliar with this sub-genre, it’s like a slasher, but with an emphasis on police procedure and a dash of Italian Vogue. (Not to mention the ubiquitous gloved killer.) Starting in the mid ‘60s, they revved up the violence, leading to the watershed of Twitch of the Death Nerve (1971), where Mario Bava singlehandedly invented the “body count” that transferred across the water and led us to Haddonfield and Camp Crystal Lake.

But some gialli still let their freak flags fly, bringing us to The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave (1971), a film that blends bodies, bodices, castles, the supernatural, possible gas lighting, nudity, and triple crosses into an overflowing bath of ideas that is a lot of fun to splash around in. Not all the water stays in the tub, but there’s still plenty enough for a good soak.

Released in Italy in August,

The legend of Ridley Scott’s I Am Legend

Padraig Cotter Oct 5, 2016

Arnold Schwarzenegger was set to star in I Am Legend, with Ridley Scott directing. We look back at a lost movie...

Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend is one of the greatest vampire novels ever written, and is a noted inspiration on people like Stephen King and George Romero. The book tells the story of Robert Neville, who is seemingly the lone survivor of a plague that turned most of humanity into bloodsucking ghouls. Neville survives nightly attacks by hordes eager for his blood while trying to overcome the crushing loneliness of being the last human left. It’s a book that manages the twin feat of being a great horror story and an achingly sad character study; it’s got a gut-punch of a twist too.

I Am Legend is an inherently cinematic concept, but it hasn’t had a smooth ride on the big screen.

Is the end near for doomsday TV? NBC orders apocalypse dramedy series

Is the end near for doomsday TV? NBC orders apocalypse dramedy series
Are we nearing the end of the post-apocalyptic TV drama boom? NBC has ordered a dramedy series titled Apocalypse that stars Rob Lowe, Megan Mullally, Jenna Fischer and Matthew Baynton. The set-up: A comet is on an unavoidable collision course toward Earth and one extended family must navigate the societal chaos that ensues. Characters include "a foul-mouthed priest, an unhinged white supremacist, a mild-mannered bank manager, a germ-phobic cyber-terrorist, a five-star general and a child who (possibly) rose from the dead." They say that parodies signal the coming demise of a popular genre; see also how 1980's Airplane! crashed the airline disaster movie streak,

Watch: Will Forte Rules The World In Trailer For Phil Lord & Chris Miller's Fox TV Series 'Last Man On Earth'

Even with big screen smash successes in 2014 with "The Lego Movie" and "22 Jump Street," Phil Lord and Chris Miller aren't leaving the creative opportunities of television untapped. This spring they're giving Will Forte a showcase role in "The Last Man On Earth," and the first teaser trailer is here. And yes, the concept is as simple as the title: one man is left as the sole person on Earth. And in Forte's hands, that means doing every crazy idea you've ever wanted to try with no fear of reprisal. It's an amusing teaser for sure, but don't think this one will be just a solo Forte show. January Jones and Kristen Schaal are part of the cast too, and that trio should prove to have an interesting dynamic. "The Last Man On Earth" arrives on March 1st, and Lord and Miller have directed a couple of episodes as well. Watch below.

12 New Television Shows We Can’t Wait to Watch

A new year and a new list! But while I suspect we’re all more than a bit tapped out on lists of lists on top of lists rehashing the glories and failures of 2014, this list is a bit different, because it’s forward-thinking, driving us to right into the glory of a year so fresh that it’s still wearing its official New Year’s Baby Cloth Diaper ©. This is a list about things to come, a list chronicling the unseen, a list of possibilities. In short, this is a list of dreams. It’s also — mainly, mostly — a list about entertainment to come, specifically of the small screen variety and particularly the kind that we will seen sooner rather than later. The traditional seasonal system has been shoved aside over the past few years, no longer dictating that autumn is the only time to see a bevy of new television offerings (though I still have

Fox sets midseason plans for 'Glee,' 'Backstrom,' 'The Following' and more

Fox sets midseason plans for 'Glee,' 'Backstrom,' 'The Following' and more
Kudos to Fox for milking two days of news reports out of an otherwise unified announcement of its midseason schedule. After we reported yesterday that "American Idol" and "Empire" will premiere on January 7, Fox rolled out its entire midseason overhaul, including premiere dates for new drama "Backstrom," new comedies "The Last Man on Earth" and "Weird Loners," a new reality offering called "World's Funniest Fails" and returns for new seasons of "MasterChef Junior," "The Following" and "Hell's Kitchen." Fox also revealed plans for the final season of "Glee." After a fairly rough fall -- "Gotham" and "MasterChef Junior" are among the few unvarnished positives -- it's no wonder that Fox's changes touch every night of primetime. Let's look at the winter/spring premieres, jumping between chronological order and night-by-night. There will be a handy, but complicated, chart at the bottom of the page when this confuses you.

Deathwatch: Fall TV survival status report

Deathwatch: Fall TV survival status report
It's been a remarkably bloodless fall TV season. There have only been a few shows officially canceled (and a couple more unofficially), while other modestly rated shows have received rather generous full-season pick-ups (like ABC's Forever). Still, some titles have yet to receive a network verdict and could go either way. Below is our Deathwatch guide to what's sticking around for awhile, which shows are still on the bubble and which are canceled (or sorta canceled). One thing you'll notice is there are remarkably few currently endangered shows. That's not to say every green show is actually doing well or

Blu-ray Review: The Vincent Price Collection II (Scream Factory)

The first Vincent Price collection from Scream Factory was a pure treasure. When October rolls around, almost nothing puts me in the Halloween mood like a constant stream of Vincent Price films on my TV. Never did I think that Scream could improve upon their original price collection, but when the films that would be included in this new set were announced, I was shocked. The first Vincent Price Collection has some really solid Price films, mostly of a Poe nature, and it was one of the most exciting releases of the year for fans of classic horror. The second set, drops the Poe theme(mostly), and includes some of Price’s most famous, well-regarded films, including a couple of my favorites. The list of films is impressive, and there are extras on most of the films. The packaging is consistent, and equally pleasing to the eyes. Scream Factory’s

Fox Cuts Mulaney's First Season Short

Mulaney isn't getting the 16-episode treatment. With Fox's overall ratings continuing to decline this Fall, the network has decided to reduce its order of the show to 13 episodes. The good news for fans: for now, Mulaney will continue airing after Family Guy at 9:30 p.m. on Sundays. Despite its striking similarities to NBC's classic Seinfeld, the Lorne Michaels-produced show starring former Saturday Night Live writer John Mulaney and Martin Short hasn't been a hit with critics and audiences. Should the show get the ax midseason, Fox has three other shows - The Last Man on Earth, Bordertown, and Weird Loners - ready to fill its spot. Are you bummed about the news?

Who needs Will Smith? 'I Am Legend' is getting a reboot

  • Hitfix
(Cbr) Warner Bros. is going back to the post-apocalyptic well with another adaptation of Richard Matheson’s "I Am Legend" film. This one won’t feature Will Smith, who starred in the 2007 film, and sounds as if it won’t have much in common with the source material. According to Deadline, the studio asked Gary Graham to repurpose his script "A Garden at the End of the World" into a reboot. The original screenplay, which garnered a lot of attention on the Black List website, was described as a sci-fi version of "The Searchers," the 1956 John Ford classic in which John Wayne combs the West for the Comanches niece kidnapped his nieces and killed the rest of the family. This will mark the fourth time Matheson’s 1954 novel has been adapted for film. Vincent Price starred in the 1964 film "The Last Man on Earth," Charlton Heston played the lead in
