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).

WRETCHED RE-ISSUES: THE ENTITY (1982)

THE ENTITY (1982)

Starring Barbara Hershey, Ron Silver and David Labiosa

Directed by Sidney J. Furie

Written by Frank De Felitta

Anchor Bay

Despite online chatter that an Entity remake is on the way (allegedly helmed by Ringu director Hideo Nakata), I find that hard to imagine. First, what studio is going to finance a movie about a malevolent spirit that repeatedly rapes the leading lady? Secondly, which actress would be brave enough to step into the shoes of the original’s star, Barbara Hershey? While not perfect by any means, the original Entity remains a disturbing film made in a bolder time, and a new version would likely be toothless by comparison.

“RUE MORGUE” FOUNDERS ANNOUNCES 1ST FILM

Posted in News, Rue Morgue, Supernatural, Thriller with tags , , , , , , , on August 8, 2011 by darklordbunnykins


Rue Morgue Magazine founder (and friend) Rodrigo Gudino has announced pre-production on his first film, The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh.

Set to begin filming this October, the movie, which will be shot in Toronto “in one of the city’s most unusual homes and best kept secrets,” was written and will be directed by Gudino. From the press release: “[T]he film centres on an antiques collector who inherits a house from his estranged mother only to discover that she had been living in a shrine devoted to a mysterious cult of angels. As night falls, he comes to suspect that his mother’s oppressive spirit still lingers within her home and is using items in the house – especially the statues of angels – to contact him with an urgent message. “

Gudino intends to follow Testament with his long-mooted remake of the violent ’70s Western Cut Throats Nine, to which Mads Mikkelsen, Harvey Keitel and Canadian actor Roy Dupuis have been attached.

SINISTER CINEMA: “MOTHER’S DAY” PLAYS RUE MORGUE’S CINEMACABRE TONIGHT!

Posted in Events, Gore, Movies, News, Rue Morgue, Violence with tags , , , , , on May 19, 2011 by darklordbunnykins

Rue Morgue Magazine‘s monthly movie night happens again this evening, with the Charles Kaufman camp classic Mother’s Day (1980) screening at 9:30 at The Bloor Cinema. Mother’s Day, the tale of two backwoods brothers who torment a trio of city girls at the behest of their momma, was reviled in its time for its exploitative nudity and violence, and we can’t blame the protestors as the sleaze is pretty thick. Feel free to bring your own bar of soap.

Posted in Devils, Events, Gore, Movies, News, Posters, Rue Morgue, Violence with tags , , , , on January 20, 2011 by darklordbunnykins

Rue Morgue Magazine‘s monthly Cinemacabre screenings return to Toronto’s Bloor Theatre tonight with 1977′s Holocaust 2000. The mag describes it as an “over the top 1977 Omen rip-off [which] stars Kirk Douglas as a businessman trying to build a nuclear power plant in the Middle East. As everyone opposing the plan meets a grisly end, he suspects that his son is really the Anti-Christ trying to bring on doomsday! Tense, gory and featuring a score by Ennio Morricone, HOLOCAUST 2000 is evil… Italian-style.”

We’ll be there!
