Re-Animator

Blu-ray

Arrow

1985 / 1:85 / Street Date August 8, 2017

Starring: Jeffrey Combs, Barbara Crampton

Cinematography: Mac Ahlberg

Film Editor: Lee Percy

Written by Stuart Gordon, Dennis Paoli, William Norris

Produced by Brian Yuzna

Music: Richard Band

Directed by Stuart Gordon

Released in 1985, Stuart Gordon’s Re-Animator remains the grandest of Grand Guignols, a viscerally entertaining comedy that is just grindhouse enough for fans of Blood Feast and arthouse enough for connoisseurs of Francis Bacon’s more grisly canvases.

Originally scripted for Chicago’s Organic Theater Company by Gordon and co-writers Dennis Paoli and William Norris, Re-Animator was based on H. P. Lovecraft’s short story, Herbert West – Re-Animator, first published in 1922. Set in the blandly generic college town of Arkham, Massachusetts, the action revolves in and around the classrooms of stately Miskatonic University’s medical school and the sterilized atmosphere of the academy’s dank morgue evoked so well by Mac Ahlberg’s lush cinematography.

The Killing of America

In Japan Leonard Schrader's docu about real-life American horrors was called Violent America. The decidedly unflattering picture couldn't find a U.S. distributor when new but accrued a reputation as the ultimate compilation of violent historical images. It's now filed with cannibal and zombie pictures in exploitation movie catalogs, yet it has more in common with Schrader's Taxi Driver.

‘Snowden’: How Oliver Stone’s Editors Kept the Nsa Whistleblower’s Story Personal and Political

  • Indiewire
‘Snowden’: How Oliver Stone’s Editors Kept the Nsa Whistleblower’s Story Personal and Political
Snowden,” Oliver Stone’s best movie in years, benefits from the same biopic approach as “Born on the Fourth of July,” by giving us the personal story and not just the inner workings of the intelligence community that we gleaned from Laura Poitras’ Oscar-winning “Citizenfour” documentary.

Snowden” is a gripping narrative about the changing perceptions of the whistleblower (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) as he moves from idealism to disillusionment— while remaining a patriot. The film’s editors Lee Percy and Alex Marquez helped to humanize the Nsa contractor’s life and what motivated him to leak thousands of classified documents to journalists, exposing covert global surveillance programs.

While exploring the covert world of spying and complicated computer tech, Stone focuses heavily on Snowden’s relationships, particularly with girlfriend Lindsay Mills (Shailene Woodley), who broadens his ideology, and CIA recruiter and mentor Corbin O’Brian (Rhys Ifans), whose surname was lifted from George Orwell

Film Review: ‘The Runner’

Film Review: ‘The Runner’
The 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill takes a back seat to the sticky personal and career complications of an idealistic Louisiana Congressman in “The Runner,” an earnest but lifeless political drama that makes an average hour of C-span seem like “House of Cards” by comparison. One of the innumerable low-budget indies Nicolas Cage has turned to in a combined move toward career revitalization and tax-debt payback, this uninspired directing debut for producer Austin Stark (“Happythankyoumoreplease,” “Infinitely Polar Bear”) features solid work by its star but is far too staid and familiar to earn either arthouse prestige or the kind of cult that flocked to Cage’s 2009 Bayou State romp, “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans.”

Cage reveals the same general desire to be taken seriously as an actor again here that was already on display in the recent “Joe” and “The Dying of the Light,” right from an early scene

Carrie Set Visit Report Part 2: Cast Soundbites with Judy Greer, Alex Russell, Portia Doubleday and More

In Part 1 of our Carrie set visit report, we heard from director Kimberly Peirce and star Chloe Moretz regarding their thoughts on the upcoming retelling of the classic Stephen King novel.

We also discussed what they both did to prepare for the project, working with Julianne Moore and much more in regards to their experiences during production.

For this portion of our set visit interviews, we were able to sit down with several of the Carrie co-stars including Judy Greer, Portia Doubleday, Alex Russell and Ansel Engort. In Peirce's film Greer is portraying well-meaning educator Miss Desjardin, and during her roundtable chat she discussed how her character is really the catalyst for all the tragedy that happens in Carrie. Doubleday (who was fantastic in the recent indie thriller K-11) chatted about what we can expect from resident mean girl Chris Hargensen in Screen Gems’ upcoming production, and newcomers Russell and
