[BEST & WORST '13] Wolfman's 10 Festival Favorites From 2013!

I sure do hate writing end of the year lists. It’s not so much that I don’t like looking back on the best (and worst) films that have come out during any given year, but there’s no way I could have seen EVERY movie that came out in 2013. Especially with the rise in movies going straight to DVD and VOD, there are so many more ways to see movies. I do also sometimes get to see movies before they are officially released and I’m not very good about holding on to my excitement for a time when the movie is “officially” released but I always look like a dick for saying, “Oh well I really liked ________ but you haven’t seen it because it’s not out yet.” Real cool, Wolfman. Real cool. However, I did get to see a LOT of great genre movies this year by attending South by Southwest and Fasntastic Fest in Austin, TX. Every movie on this list played at one of those festivals, some of them have already been released, some of them have release dates, some will just be coming out in the near future. Another cool thing about movies at festivals is they blur and bend genre lines, so even if some of these films might not fit into the “horror” genre in the strictest of senses, they all played at festivals! There! I am playing by the rules! I win! READ MORE

Lords of Salem

[BD Review] 'The Lords of Salem' Delivers Slick Visuals, More Confusion...

To me, Rob Zombie has always been an enigma when it comes to his films. I initially loved House Of 1000 Corpses, but repeated viewings have had me questioning whether it was a good film, or Rob just masturbating over his references to 70s horror, much to our chagrin. The Devil’s Rejects was better, and while Halloween was brutal, it again felt more like Rob was again just stroking his ego. And the less said about Halloween II, the better (although the Director’s Cut wasn’t that bad). Now Rob has gone the low budget route again with The Lords Of Salem, which made its premiere at the 2012 TIFF to a full house). So, which Rob Zombie film are we getting this time?

Local rock radio DJ and recovering drug addict Heidi Hawthorne co-hosts a show with “the two Hermans” in modern day Salem, Massachusetts. One day, Heidi receives a mysterious wooden box containing a vinyl record from “The Lords”. Heidi and one of the Hermans play the record, which causes Heidi to have flashbacks of torture and witchcraft from Salem’s past. A local historian, Francis Matthias, takes a keen interest in the package, and after investigating, discovers a link between it, an old coven of witches and the Hawthorne bloodline. It seems that the witches who were burned at the stake by Heidi’s ancestor, Reverend Jonathan Hawthorne, are trying to return to fulfill a centuries-old curse placed upon the Salem’s women.

[Mayhem '13] Rob Zombie Chats Upcoming Live DVD, Movie Plans, And More

While attending this past Sunday’s Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival show in Clarkston, MI, I got the opportunity to sit down with none other than Rob Zombie, famed musician and director of this year’s The Lords Of Salem. During our interview we discussed Zombie’s upcoming “Great American Nightmare” attraction as well as his upcoming live DVD, which he states will not be your typical live concert fare. We also discussed his upcoming movie plans, which apparently include a non-horror film that he hopes to begin after his Bruins/Flyers hockey rivalry production. You can watch the full interview below.

[Interview] Jason Blum Talks 'The Purge', 'Sinister 2', 'The Town That Dreaded Sundown' And Low Budget Freedom

Writer/Director James DeMonaco’s Blumhouse and Platinum Dunes-produced The Purge stars Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Max Burkholder, Adelaide Kane, Edwin Hodge, Tony Oller and Rhys Wakefield and hits theaters tomorrow, June 7th.

In an America wracked by crime, the government has sanctioned an annual 12-hour period in which any and all criminal activity—including murder—is legal. The police can’t be called. Hospitals suspend help. It is one night when the citizenry regulates itself without thought of punishment. On this night plagued by violence and an epidemic of crime, one family wrestles with the decision of who they will become when a stranger comes knocking.

I recently hopped on the phone with producer Jason Blum (Sinister, Insidious, Insidious Chapter 2, Paranormal Activity 1-5, The Lords Of Salem, Dark Skies, The Bay) to chat about the political reaction to the film and the balancing act of dealing with a big idea in a small setting. We also talk about the creative reasons behind keeping budgets down and whether or not Sinister 2 will continue the Insidious Chapter 2 trend of feeling a little bigger. Finally, we get a few words about his partnering with Ryan Murphy (“American Horror Story”) for the meta-remake of The Town That Dreaded Sundown.

Rob Zombie Had A "Miserable Experience" Making The 'Halloween' Films, Was Going To Make 'The Blob' Serious

With The Lords of Salem still fresh in theaters, Rob Zombie has been doing quite a bit of press for the film. And he’s a great interview. However you feel about his work, he doesn’t seem to bullsh*t quite as much as a lot of other celebrity horror directors and I found him impressively candid in my interview with him a few weeks back.

He recently spoke to The Playlist and elaborated on his experiences with the Halloween films. “I really like those films. I didn’t have a good time making them. It was actually a kind of miserable experience. Anytime they vary from the format is when I really like them.

And varying from the format is what he wanted to do with his remake of The Blob, though the fact that it was another remake at all seems to be what turned him off to the project. Head inside for his take on that! READ MORE

5 Great Lines From 'House Of 1,000 Corpses'!!!

While I may not be the biggest fan of most of Rob Zombie‘s movies, I can’t deny that there are some fantastic, quote worthy lines throughout his films. They’re sharp, often hilarious, and have no subtlety whatsoever.

With The Lords Of Salem expanding into additional theaters this weekend, I thought I’d take a look back at Zombie’s first film, House Of 1,000 Corpses, which shocked and divided audiences upon its release. But whether or not you liked the film you have to admit that there were some truly entertaining moments. So head on down to see which five lines I loved the most from HO1K!

[BD Review] Brad Finds 'Lords Of Salem' To Be A Chore, Mike Loves The Style

Rob Zombie’s The Lords of Salem is finally out (in limited theaters in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Chicago, Philadelphia, DC, Miami, Dallas, Houston, Detroit) and it’s sort of a polarizing movie. Some people love it, others hate it. I kinda liked it for the strong visuals, but felt that the story was pretty spotty. But Brad and Mike have actual reviews posted – so read those!

Per Brad, “It would be easy to give Lords a pass. It has genuinely creepy imagery, cool scares, super crazy sound design, and even more mind blowing set designs. But there will be no pass, mainly because of the awkwardly unfulfilling ending and the fact that much of the “cool” doesn’t interact with the characters or plot.

Per Mike, “For 100 minutes, I was taken away to another place and the usual insistence in basic storytelling and character eluded me. In this case, the style is the substance.

Who will YOU agree with? Here’s Brad’s review out of TIFF, as well as Mike’s more positive take. As always, write in with YOUR review here!

The Lords of Salem opens in limited theaters (New York, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Chicago, Philadelphia, DC, Miami, Dallas, Houston, Detroit) tomorrow, April 19 from Anchor Bay Films. While not all of the story worked for me, I definitely appreciated the mood, tone and striking visuals in the film. I sat down with writer/director Rob Zombie a few weeks back and we discussed his approach to crafting such a cinematic experience, as well as what corners he needed to cut in order to get his tale to the screen.

Rob Zombie Says 'Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor' Might Be A Movie

In an interview with shock rocker Rob Zombie, ARTISTdirect has found out that the new album Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor might one day be turned into a movie. The album will be released April 23rd.

Zombie states, “Well, I think it could. I made it with that in mind. At least in my mind — no one else knows this — I wanted to have a storyline that runs through the record so if someday I wanted to make it into a movie musical like The Who’s “Tommy” or “Quadrophenia”, there was a structure to follow. I’m not really talking about what it is because I think it’s sort of relevant at this point. Maybe that’s why that sense comes through.

If this does happen, I’m very confident in saying that Sheri Moon Zombie will have a leading role and Rob Zombie will find a slew of b-horror actors that we haven’t seen since some obscure film in the 70′s or 80′s so that he appears hip and cool. READ MORE

The 5 Rob Zombie Films From Worst To Best!!!

Rob Zombie is most certainly a talented visualist, but he’s an inconsistent storyteller. That being said, I’ve found something to appreciate (and dislike) in almost all of his films and I figured now would be as good a time as any to take a look at his filmography. If anything, he does deserve some credit for having his own vision.

His upcoming The Lords of Salem hits limited theaters (New York, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Chicago, Philadelphia, DC, Miami, Dallas, Houston, Detroit) on April 19th from Anchor Bay Films, and I also thought it would be interesting to discuss my thoughts on the film within the larger context of his overall filmography.

The film “tells the tale of Heidi (Sheri Moon Zombie), a radio station DJ living in Salem, Massachusetts, who receives a strange wooden box containing a record, a “gift from the Lords.” Heidi listens, and the bizarre sounds within the grooves immediately trigger flashbacks of the town’s violent past. Is Heidi going mad, or are the “Lords of Salem” returning for revenge on modern-day Salem?
