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

21 hours ago

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, »

Stephen King & J.J. Abrams’ Castle Rock Series Coming to Hulu

17 February 2017 5:46 PM, PST

Castle Rock. It's a town where many of Stephen King's stories take place and one that's referenced in many more. It's a community existing smack-dab in the center of King's wonderfully weird literary world, and now it appears that it will come to life in a new limited series on Hulu.

Abrams' Bad Robot production company announced the Castle Rock series in a mysterious video (see below) that references several of King's most famous works.

Deadline reports that Castle Rock is a limited series based on the stories of Stephen King. The project is being penned and executive produced by Sam Shaw (Manhattan, Masters of Sex), with Abrams, Bad Robot, Warner Bros. TV (and likely King) also backing the series.

Review: A Cure For Wellness [Monte’s Take]

17 February 2017 2:19 PM, PST

Director Gore Verbinski has crafted quite an interesting career. After striking genre gold with the remake of the Japanese horror film Ringu, orchestrating one of Disney’s most successful franchises with Pirates of the Caribbean, and continuing his collaboration with Johnny Depp on the animated film Rango and the reboot of The Lone Ranger, Verbinski was poised to do whatever he wanted to do with his next film, and it doesn’t take long to realize this quality in the director’s new film, A Cure for Wellness.

For nearly two and a half hours, Verbinski compiles a beautiful, confounding, and chaotic medley of his favorite and most influential film scenes recreated. One moment you are whisked away on a train ride through the Swiss Alps in a moment of stunning scenery, the next you are offered images of unnerving and repulsive situations. It’s undeniable that Verbinski and director »
