The Dark Prince Bunnykins

 

Those of you curious as to why posts on The DLB have been so infrequent in recent months, please meet the reason: The Dark Prince Bunnykins! The past several months have been taken up serving this little fledgling Monster Kid on hand and foot, as well as his beloved mother. I am planning to ramp up posting, when time (and sanity) allows.

SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D

Starring Adelaide Clemens, Kit Harington and Sean Bean

Written and directed by Michael J. Bassett

Alliance

 

Having been on the Silent Hill: Revelation 3D set, I can tell you that the people who made it were committed, enthusiastic, and looking forward to taking the legacy of the first Silent Hill film, as well as that of the video games upon which the franchise is based, and moving them forward with the sequel.

Unfortunately, they failed.

WRETCHED REVIEWS: FRANKENWEENIE

Posted in Art, Eye Candy, Fantasy, Goth, Monsters, Movies, Reviews with tags , , , , , , , on October 5, 2012 by darklordbunnykins

FRANKENWEENIE

Voice cast includes Charlie Tahan, Martin Short and Catherine O’Hara

Directed by Tim Burton

Written by John August

Disney

It is slightly ironic that 30 years after Disney allegedly fired then fledgling animator Tim Burton for wasting their money making his (somewhat) macabre short movie Frankenweenie that the studio would hire the iconoclastic director to flesh out the concept in stop-motion and at feature-length. But Burton’s legacy of creativity and profit (he returned to the Mouse House to direct Alice in Wonderland) means that the professional oddball can pretty much do what he wants, with or without Johnny Depp.

The DLB recently spoke to Russell Cherrington, the restoration director of Nightbreed: The Cabal Cut, the extended/re-purposed version of Clive Barker’s notoriously troubled second film as a director, for MSN Canada. You can read that article here.

Cherrington, alongside Mark Miller from Barker’s Seraphim Films and effects animator Paul Jones, will be in Toronto tonight (July 19) to present the new Nightbreed as part of Rue Morgue Magazine‘s Cinemacabre film series. The screening starts at 9pm and takes place at the TIFF Bell Lightbox (350 King St. West).

RE-MASTERED “JAWS” PLAYS TIFF BELL LIGHTBOX IN TORONTO

Posted in Events, Eye Candy, Monsters, Movies, News, Thriller, Violence with tags , , , on June 29, 2012 by darklordbunnykins

For all those Torontonians (or Southern Ontarians) who have only ever seen Jaws on video or DVD, get yourself to the TIFF Bell Lightbox ASAP to experience Steven Spielberg’s classic horror show in all its digitally remastered glory. The theatre is showing the version of the film being released on Blu-ray August 14, and it looks and sounds amazing, having had itself digitally scrubbed.

I attended the press screening sitting beside Jason from FilmFest.ca who basically said he were about to see God onscreen, and he was right. Show times and info is available here.

WRETCHED REVIEWS: ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER (2012)

Posted in Eye Candy, Fantasy, Movies, Reviews, Vampires, Violence with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 21, 2012 by darklordbunnykins

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER

Starring Benjamin Walker, Dominic Cooper and Rufus Sewell

Directed by Timur Bekmambetov

Written by Seth Grahame-Smith

20th Century Fox

Much like the founding father himself, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is as honest a title as any movie has ever had. Indeed, if you give yourself up to its sheer ridiculousness then you’ll have a great time in the theatre. If you are especially fond of the laws of physics or decide to tsk-tsk the assorted clunkers that litter Seth Grahame-Smith’s script – which he adapted from his own book – then you’ll likely shake your head in disbelief and wonder how many Duplass Brothers films the budget could have covered. To you I say fuck off.

EXCL: KATRINA BOWDEN TALKS “PIRANHA 3DD”

Posted in Eye Candy, Gore, Interviews, Monsters, Movies, Sequels, Sex, Violence with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 1, 2012 by darklordbunnykins

Meagan Tandy and Katrina Bowden in Piranha 3DD (Dimension Films)

Katrina Bowden co-stars in the horror-comedy sequel Piranha 3DD, which opens wide today. The 30 Rock star plays the virginal Shelby, not her first venture into the genre as she also starred in the underrated Tucker & Dale vs. Evil. Bowden can next be see in the Toronto-shot psychological thriller Nurse 3D co-starring opposite Paz de la Huerta (Into the Void, HBO’s Boardwalk Empire.

Katrina, you’ve starred in a couple of horror films now, including Tucker and Dale vs. Evil. Are you a horror or horror-comedy fan?

I like horror-comedy. I think it’s a really fun genre, and when it’s done well it’s really great to watch.

Horror movies I’m not so great with. I get so scared. I’m kind of a baby when it comes to that. I’ve never really been a horror fan myself, going out to go see the new horror movies, for the only reason being that I can’t really handle them. I respect how they’re made; I think it’s a really cool genre to be part of it and to make.

What do you like about your character Shelby?

She’s kind of like the damsel-in-distress. She’s kind of shy and a little bit more reserved, but then everything bad that happens to her and has all these close calls and she almost dies. She’s in no way a hero type of person, but it was fun to play a shy type of girl.

What is your director John Gulager really good at?

He’s really good at making things look really gross. The blood, the vomiting scene, he was very excited to do that scene. I think I did that five times because he wanted the puke-up to be the perfect one. And he’s really good at setting things up to be really shocking. He did all the Feast movies; that’s kind of his thing and he does it really well, and he does it in a funny, humorous way.

Not Katrina Bowden

What was the mood like on set?

It was fun. It was very light-hearted and fun, and we all had a good time. We all knew we were getting ourselves into something… we’re going to be covered in blood and be in the water, and we were down for anything.

Without giving away too much, your character Shelby is involved in a rather nasty sexual encounter with a boy and a piranha. What was that scene like to film, especially given how bloody it gets?

It was pretty difficult. I think like any kind of love scene, it’s really uncomfortable to shoot, but then you add all these extra elements into it, it becomes that much more uncomfortable and awkward for everyone.

So that was a really hard night, wondering how it was going to turn out. I wanted it to look good and be funny and realistic. It was a hard scene to shoot, but I think it turned out really well. It was worth it.

What was it like working with the piranha themselves?

That was actually really cool because the guys who did the special effects for the movie they made all that, and I just find that fascinating that they can create these kinds of things that can move and do things and spit blood. They’re really beautiful in person. I think it’s cool that they did so much practically instead of relying on CGI for everything.

You also star in the upcoming horror film Nurse 3D. What was it like to work with your co-star Paz de La Huerta?

She’s definitely a very intense person. Not the easiest person to work with, but it really helps her craft. She just dives into a character, even if her character happens to be a psychopathic serial killer. So it doesn’t really equal a fun working environment, but I think it will help the movie definitely.

Are you eager to have fans see a darker side of you in that film?

Yeah. I was really eager to do some darker roles or something more intense or different from what I’ve already done. I think it’s challenging

Both that film and Piranha 3DD are in 3D. What are the challenges of working in 3D?

I do like 3D. I think it’s a really cool way to shoot a film as an element that a lot of movies don’t have. It makes it a little more difficult shooting-wise because there are more shots where you have to be conscious of where things are in terms of where the camera is. But it’s fun, and it’s not really that much different from shooting a regular movie.

EXCL: CHLOE MORETZ ON GETTING HER “DARK SHADOWS” ROLE

Posted in Eye Candy, Ghosts, Gore, Goth, Interviews, Movies, Supernatural, TV, Vampires, Werewolves, Witches with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 11, 2012 by darklordbunnykins

The DLB spoke with actress Chloe Moretz recently in conjunction with the home video release of Hugo, her collaboration with Martin Scorsese. Of course we just had to ask about her role in Dark Shadows. Director Tim Burton’s much-anticipated movie version of the ’60s soap opera casts frequent Burton collaborator Johnny Depp as the cursed vampire Barnabas Collins, a role originated by recently deceased Canadian actor Jonathan Frid. Moretz plays Carolyn, the sullen teen daughter of Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, played by Michelle Pfeiffer.

 

What was it like working with Tim Burton?

Working with Tim was such an experience. I don’t even know what to say because he’s probably been my dream, dream, dream director, along with Scorsese of course, to work with.

My mom and my brother didn’t actually tell me because they had called in and they had said that they wanted me for the movie, and of course my mom and my brother didn’t tell me in case it didn’t go through or something, and if it feel through I would be so devastated.

So they didn’t tell me, but after the deal went through my brother and I had landed in New York to do a photoshoot, I think, or something. And we had just landed, got off the plane, and [Moretz's brother] Trevor received an email from my mom saying the deal’s gone through, oh my gosh, we’re so excited. It’s happening. Of course he turns to me as we’re docking the plane, and he goes, ‘So Chlo, what we were going to tell you is you’ve booked a Tim Burton film for Dark Shadows and it films in three months, and I was like ‘What!?’ I just started freaking out on the plane, and everyone was like ‘what is wrong with that girl?’ And I was like freaking out, like ‘oh my Gosh!’ And I freaked out so much that I actually left my iPad on the plane. It was a pretty special thing.

I’m in love with Tim and I’m in love with Johnny and Helena [Bonham Carter] and Michelle Pfeiffer and everyone. It’s a really special, special movie.
