How we made: Jane Asher and Roger Corman on The Masque of the Red Death

‘I hated the bath scene. They stuck awful little modesty circles on my nipples and they kept floating off’My Edgar Allan Poe adaptations began in 1960 with The Fall of the House of Usher. I held off doing The Masque of the Red Death, because I felt it had some similarities to Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal, with its hooded figures, and I might be accused of copying. But it got to the point where it was the best unadapted one left, so I thought I’d go ahead and worry about it later. Continue r...

‘Hellraiser’ Rights Return to Creator Clive Barker Next Year

It’s been a surprisingly busy year for Hellraiser news (perhaps because we’re all trapped in hell). There’s a Hellraiser TV series in the works at HBO, with Halloween director David Gordon Green at the helm. And then there’s a Hellraiser reboot from filmmaker David Bruckner (The Night House). And now here’s perhaps the biggest Hellraiser news of all: the American rights to the franchise are now back in the hands of original creator Clive Barker. Clive Barker has had next to nothing to do wit...

If You Wanted a Cyberpunk ’47 Ronin’ Sequel Set 300 Years in the Future, We Have Good News

Typically, when a movie performs so poorly that it earns a reputation as one of the biggest box office bombs of a given year, it’s a good sign that the film in question won’t be getting a sequel. But inexplicably, that maxim does not seem to apply to the 2013 Keanu Reeves film 47 Ronin, because that movie is getting a cyberpunk sequel set 300 years in the future. Deadline says that Netflix will distribute this 47 Ronin sequel, which will be produced by Universal 1440, the production arm of Un...

Everything You Should Watch After You Stream ‘Howard’ on Disney+

Howard Ashman is, hyperbole be damned, one of the most important figures in the history of animation. It’s an impressive feat considering that he never once drew a character or directed an animated feature. You may not know his name, but Howard Ashman’s words have given life to some of the most beloved characters of modern Disney animation. What’s more, his lyrical compositions and collaboration with composer Alan Menken inspired the last 30 years of mainstream American animation in one way or...

CS Interview: Talia Shire Talks Cult Classic Rad

Masaaki Yuasa is one of the hardest working filmmakers in the anime industry right now.

And the amazing thing about a Yuasa project is that you’re not sure what to expect every time. Will you get a hardcore violent sci-fi series? Or a sweet, whimsical comedy? With his newest series J...

NASA and SpaceX's launch was postponed, but at least we got to see their wildly corny spacesuits

The much-heralded joint launch between NASA and Elon Musk's SpaceX was postponed on Wednesday due to light rain in Florida. It was a disappointing anticlimax for the first manned space launch from American soil since 2011 — all systems were "go" just an hour before astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley were scheduled for 4:33 p.m. liftoff — but there was a silver lining to the clouds above Cape Canaveral: the world got to see, for the first time, NASA and SpaceX's alarmingly chees...

Mother of all sci-fi: which is the best Alien movie?

The series has delivered a horror masterwork, a seminal shoot-em-up and some auteurist gems ... but how do they rank?What better way to celebrate the recent Alien Day than to place the eight movies in the long-running space saga into some kind of order of excellence? And also perhaps to ask how so many film-makers have managed to muck up the original film’s formula.Let’s start at the bottom. The two Alien vs Predator movies from 2004 and 2007 are now remembered largely for their staggering bland...
