Drive-In Dust Offs: 10 To Midnight (1983)

  • DailyDead
Horror was so prevalent and popular in the early ‘80s that even the action genre wanted in on the…uh, action. Chuck Norris haiyah’ed a Michael Myers wannabe in Silent Rage (1982), so next up it was granite faced Charles Bronson’s turn to take on slashers with 10 to Midnight (1983), a sleazy yet fascinating trip through the mind of a serial killer. While it’s never as deep as it thinks it is, it’s smarter than it has any right to be.

Released in March, this Cannon production, co-distributed by MGM, recouped its 4.5 million plus a few million more at the box office. Certainly not Death Wish numbers, but it’s not really a Death Wish type of film (until it is). As for the critics, Mr. Ebert called it “a scummy little sewer of a movie”. He’s not completely right, though; the misogynistic male gaze is upended

Death Wish: remake gets a first trailer

Ryan Lambie Aug 4, 2017

Bruce Willis stars in the forthcoming remake of the revenge thriller, Death Wish. Here's a first trailer...

When Charles Bronson starred as the vengeful architect Paul Kersey in 1974's Death Wish, he helped kick off a franchise that lasted for well over a decade. And now, thanks to director Eli Roth, the franchise is back with a new Paul Kersey - this time played by Bruce Willis, in full-on grump mode.

The big twist this time is that Kersey's a surgeon rather than an architect. When dreadful things happen to his wife and daughter, Kersey takes to the streets in a hoody and becomes a gun-wielding harbinger of death. Because the new Death Wish is directed by Roth, Kersey also uses

Bruce Willis ‘Death Wish’ Trailer Blasted as ‘Alt-Right Fan Fiction’
The trailer for Eli Roth’s upcoming remake of “Death Wish” might have misjudged the current moment, at least going by the rather harsh reaction from many viewers. A remake of the 1974 exploitation film starring Charles Bronson, “Death Wish” centers on Dr. Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis), a family man who embarks on a vigilante killing spree in the streets of Chicago after criminals break into his house and kill his wife and assault his daughter. It’s essentially the same as the plot of the original film, but in 2017, at least for many observers, it felt a little too pandering to.

This new version of Death Wish stars Bruce Willis as a doctor at a hospital who decides to become a silent vigilante when his family is assaulted.

Bruce Willis Is Out For Blood In First Death Wish Trailer

While some may hold dear movie franchises such as Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings or anything having to do with Harry Potter, it’s actually Death Wish that does it for me – and I’m probably one of the few guys under fifty years of age who will say that. Hey, I’ve always been a fan of vigilante justice on film, and few other series have pulled it off so well.

Odds are that you’re probably familiar with characters like the Punisher, but what separated Charles Bronson’s Paul Kersey from a Frank Castle was that he was just your average guy who was dealt a very bad hand. Basically, someone close to him was killed in each of the five movies making up the original series, thus making for an even worse time for anybody who happened to be a street thug within Kersey’s locale.

Director Eli Roth’s Death Wish Remake Starring Bruce Willis Gets A Trailer

  • LRM Online
If one were to ask me what film I’d want to see a remake of, I wouldn’t have ever picked Death Wish. The original Charles Bronson film was fun enough, but in a world where we have characters like The Punisher and movies like Taken and John Wick, it really doesn’t do much to stand out in any meaningful way. Add to that the relatively low name recognition of Death Wish outside of film fans, and there really didn’t seem to be much reason to go back to the well on this one.

However, I became a bit more interested when Eli Roth got involved. While I’m not a huge fan of his, he has an unmistakable flare and vision that could take this film in an unexpected direction. MGM has now officially released the first official trailer for the flick for all to see.
