Re: Which films should be done next?  (reply)
Yes, I would love to see "The Black Cat" (1934) done up good. With as many bonus features and "making of" videos as possible. A full interview with Egar Ulmer's daughter and a documentary on the man himself. :-) I mean really do...

Re: SAVE BRAY (Studios) !! (reply)
Wich2, IF I had know that the old Biograph Studio was in trouble I would have worked to save it too. With information we can overcome the way of the world ;-) So let's not let this one go. Please sign the petition. We got a six...

SAVE BRAY! This is where it all happened folks! This was Hammer's studio where a lot of our favourites were made. So this is something we want to get behind. Let's not let what happened to MGM studios happen to...

Re: Dan Curtis' FRANKENSTEIN (1973) (reply)
I remember this one too! A very good attempt (If I recall correctly) to recapture the spirit of Mary Shelly's novels and present it in a sort of stage play format. I recall that it was shot on video tape (instead of film, like Curtis'...

Re: NIGHT OF THE DEMON Script (reply)
Ahhh, Curse of the Demon is one of my faves (I can hardly wait to see the original British version Night of the Demon)  I too read the short story by M.R. James and can attest to the fact that our scholarly friend Erasmus is correct, but...

I've heard both versions-- Hull was egotistical in worrying about the heavier makeup, and that no, it was out of concern for the script continuity as described above. We have to remember that most actors were very sensitive about...

MisterBeaumont wrote:"I find Hull's makeup a lot scarier than Chaney's, whatever the reasons for them." Agreed. That little black doggie nose on The Wolf Man always undercut his scariness to me. DaveI got to agree with Dave and Mister...

Dr. Realart,Yes, the makeups are almost identical.  Note how Pierce used the same technique of obscuring the upper lip and blending it more with the snout (more extreme in this photo) while at the same time accentuating the lower jaw...

Re: THE WEREWOLF OF LONDON (reply)
You'll note something of a continuity error in Werewolf of London where the old makeup was evidently being used. It is the scene where the werewolf invades the room of (I think) Miss Ettie Coombes (Spring Byington) -- anyway all you...

Re: The first zombie movie  (reply)
Hello Randy, Hope this finds all well with you. Super 16 is a widescreen format in 16mm. What they did was take the sprockets out on one side of the film and made a wider frame area. Regular 16mm has the row of sprocket holes on each...

Re: The first zombie movie  (reply)
I absolutely LOVE "White Zombie" I know Carlos Clarens called it "old fashioned" even in it time, but to me the whole film is this dreamy / nightmarish fantasy. Part Sleeping Beauty - part Dante's Inferno (which the image of the...
