Elvira, Mistress of the Dark icon Cassandra Peterson opens up in ‘Yours Cruelly, Elvira’ memoir

Cassandra Peterson was eight years old when she saw her first horror movie. The film was William Castle’s “House on Haunted Hill” starring Vincent Price. She was both repelled and fascinated by it, but it sparked a lifelong love affair with the horror genre that would eventually lead Peterson to create her Elvira, Mistress of the Dark persona and go on to become the Queen of Halloween. This year, Peterson is celebrating the 40th anniversary of Elvira, a character she began cultivating during her...

14 Remakes That Are Better Than The Original

In this day and age, it's amazingly easy to be a cynic. It could be argued that remakes are lazy cash-ins, that they're a sign of the lack of original ideas left in cinema, or that they exist only to appease that sizable portion of the cinema-going audience that needs to see films in their native tongue, without subtitles. That's true in a great many cases (I'm looking at you, "Jacob's Ladder," "Quarantine," and "The Fog"), and yet there are times when a remake is a golden opportunity to do some...

You can cook salmon in the dishwasher

Wrap seasoned salmon in aluminum foil, place it in your dishwasher, and voila! Dinner is served. The heat from a dishwasher can cook salmon, and the unconventional cooking method may prevent fishy smells from stinking up the house. Vincent Price cooked fish in the dishwasher on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in 1975, calling it "a dish any fool can prepare." — Read the rest

Hear Vincent Price Star in a Classic Radio Adaptation of George Orwell’s 1984

Here are some things you may not know about Vincent Price: He was once a young man. Before becoming a horror icon in the 1950s, he was a successful character actor. “Only a third of his movies that he made were actually horror films,” says his daughter, Victoria Price. “He made 105 films. People don’t realize he had an extensive career in theater and radio.” He came from a wealthy St. Louis family and harbored early anti-semitic views and a misguided admiration for Hitler in the 1930s. H...

Ariel Fisher’s Favorite Movies of All Time

It’s strange being asked to write something about yourself where you work. I’ve been writing about and for myself for years now, but somehow doing it this publicly always feels like putting on shoes that are one size too big. Alas, I digress already. Unfortunately, it’s a habit. I’ll try to keep it contained. Anyway! I’m Ariel Fisher and I’ve been freelancing for /Film for a few years now. I’ve recently become the latest editorial addition to the news desk and I’m absolutely in love with the ...

Five Real Haunted Places That Would Make Killer Horror Movies

Horror movies get a lot of mileage from claiming to be based on, or at least inspired by, true stories. The Conjuring Universe is big on claiming they’re telling true tales of terror, and it was recently revealed that the writers of the first Conjuring and the director of Spiral: From the Book of Saw were teaming up to launch a horror franchise based on the true story of the allegedly haunted LaLaurie Mansion. But why stop there? There are a ton of allegedly real haunted places out there, waiti...

The Six Weeks of Halloween: Speed Round

It’s tradition around these parts to finish off the Six Weeks of Halloween with a Speed Round of brief thoughts on films I watched for the marathon, but haven’t otherwise covered. Maybe it didn’t fit with a given week’s theme. Perhaps I just don’t have a lot to say about it. Or it may be that I have too much to say about it and just don’t have the time or inclination to organize my thoughts. As of this writing, I have seen 69 horror (or horror-adjacent) movies during this Halloween season. Th...

#TrackoftheDay: “Strange Transformations”

Sonic Boom SixUK (2009) I will say this: it is evident that Sonic Boom Six has excellent taste in samples. Any song that is heavy with Vincent Price is an automatic winner in my book. Extra points for a band name that’s numerically incorrect when compared to the number of members. I don’t know why I always enjoy that so much–perhaps it’s the fact that math and I sometimes get into knife fights. Anyway, that’s before we get to the song itself, with its excellent beat and smooth vo...

When Salvador Dalí Met Alice Cooper & Turned Him into a Hologram: The Meeting of Two Kings of Camp (1973)

Kings of camp Alice Cooper and Salvador Dalí made a natural pair when they met in New York City in April of 1973. "A mind-melding of sorts took place," writes Super Rad Now. "Over the course of about two weeks" Cooper and Dalí "ate together, drank together, and basked in the glow of each other's exceptional uniqueness." Then Dalí decided to turn Cooper into a hologram, the First Cylindric Chromo-Hologram Portrait of Alice Cooper's Brain. How did this come about? It was only a matter of t...

Comment on simple, essential bolognese by Barbara

In reply to Emily. Yes, Emily! My original bolognese — made now for more than 40 years — came from Vincent Price’s wonderful “Treasury of Great Recipes.” His is much like Deb’s except is uses 2 minced chicken livers in addition to the beef and cream instead of milk. The chicken livers add an indescribable umami to the taste of the sauce.

Duke pressured ACC into canceling tournament by shutting down all Blue Devil sports

Even as ACC commissioner John Swofford said Thursday morning the ACC tournament would continue despite the worldwide coronavirus pandemic, Duke University president Vincent Price had decided the Blue Devils were done. Just before noon, while Florida State's players warmed up on the court, Price notified his fellow ACC presidents and Swofford that Duke would suspend all athletic competition, including Thursday's quarterfinal against N.C. State. We have been thinking a lot about athletic...

Freddy Krueger actor Robert Englund reveals real-life horrors with ‘True Terror’ series

Robert Englund is no stranger to scary storytelling. Though the 72-year-old longtime Laguna Beach resident is best known for portraying the knifed finger glove-wearing antagonist Freddy Krueger in Wes Craven’s “A Nightmare on Elm Street” films, Englund said he’s more recently taken a deep dive into the world of non-fiction horror.

Hear Christopher Tolkien (RIP) Read the Work of His Father J.R.R. Tolkien, Which He Tirelessly Worked to Preserve

J.R.R. Tolkien is responsible for the existence of Middle-earth, the richly realized fictional setting of the Lord of the Rings novels. But he also did his bit for the existence of the much less fictional Christopher Tolkien, his third son as well as, in J.R.R.'s own words, his "chief critic and collaborator." Christopher spent much of his life returning the favor, dedicating himself to the organization, preservation, and publication of his father's notes on Middle-earth's elaborate geog...

Vincent Price and Boris Karloff both used some weird ingredients in their homemade guacamole recipes

Boris Karloff and Vincent Price are perhaps the two most well-known horror movie actors in history. But that's not all they had in common—they were, apparently, both fans of homemade guacamole. Karloff's recipe was originally published in a newspaper (I couldn't track the original source, but the earliest date the image appears online is from November 2013). I personally prefer a squeeze of lime, rather than lemon juice, in my guacamole, but otherwise this is pretty straight-forward—except for t...
