Deadly Pleasures: A Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989)

  • DailyDead
Like with any long-running slasher movie franchise, every horror fan has a favorite Nightmare on Elm Street sequel when asked. The most popular response is Dream Warriors, which, based on anecdotal evidence, many fans prefer even to the first film. Some like its follow-up, the Renny Harlin-directed The Dream Master, best. Very rarely, if ever, do Nightmare fans name the fifth installment, 1989’s The Dream Child, as their favorite. It’s the unloved orphan of the franchise, lacking even the novelty of Freddy’s Dead with its 3-D climax and the fact that it’s designed to end the series for good (even if Wes Craven’s New Nightmare would render said closure impotent just a few years later). For many, The Dream Child represents the franchise overstaying its welcome for one film too many before wrapping up. And, yes, the movie has its share of problems both in

Q&A with Nights Of The Living Dead Co-Editor Jonathan Maberry, Read an Excerpt from His Short Story “Lone Gunman”

  • DailyDead
For years, he's brought the dead to life in books like Patient Zero and Rot & Ruin, so it's rather fitting that prolific author Jonathan Maberry has now teamed up with the legendary George A. Romero to co-edit an anthology set within the early stages of the zombie uprising in Night of the Living Dead. Titled Nights of the Living Dead, the new anthology is now available from St. Martin's Press (check out our giveaway here), and to celebrate, we caught up with Maberry for our latest Q&A feature to discuss his work on the living dead dream project, and we also have a claustrophobic excerpt from his short story "Lone Gunman."

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Jonathan. How did the opportunity come about to collaborate on a Night of the Living Dead anthology with the legend himself, George A. Romero?

Soon she and her ex-lover Declan Grady (Joe Anderson) are drawn to the town of New English where they find Jebediah Crone and the Abattoir – a monstrous house stitched together with unending rooms of death and the damned.

The tragic story behind the death of Brandon Lee on the set of The Crow

Following the sad news of Michael Massee’s passing, Luke Owen looks back at the death of Brandon Lee on the set of The Crow

On March 30th 1993, Brandon Lee walked onto the set of The Crow in Wilmington, North Carolina. Less than 24 hours later, he was dead.

Based on the comic of the same name, The Crow was to be Lee’s big break. He had gained a cult following Showdown in Little Tokyo and Rapid Fire, but he wanted to move into something different and not be “remembered as the son of Bruce Lee” as he once put it. The Crow, written by James O’Barr and released in 1989, was very gothic and macabre, inspired by his love of The Cure and Joy Division and follows rock star Eric who is resurrected by a crow after he and his fiancée are killed in the streets by thugs.

2016 Los Angeles Film Festival Interview: Darren Lynn Bousman Talks Abattoir (Exclusive)
Many people often romanticize the seemingly idyllic characteristics of the past that appear to offer a serene way of life, without truly realizing what harrowing aspects can also often plague the situation. But the determined protagonist in director Darren Lynn Bousman‘s new horror film, ‘Abattoir,’ soon discovers how distressing the past can truly be when she realizes that a horrifying crime spree is coming back to haunt her. The all-too-important lesson of how the secrets of the past can truly harm a person’s present and future was highlighted when the film, which was written by Christopher Monfette, David J. Schow and Teddy Tenenbaum, screened at the 2016 Los Angeles Film [ Read More ]

Murder Rooms Make Up this Haunted House in Abattoir

Director Darren Lynn Bousman's latest horror film is titled Abattoir. This title recently had a screening at the La Film Festival, with a showing at the Arclight Culver City coming up. This haunted house thriller involves a home, which has been constructed from crime scenes. Each room in this house has had one murder take place inside. The film stars Jessica Lowndes (Altitude) as Julia, a real estate investigator. And, the film's second movie clip is hosted here. The clip shows Julia talking with several other characters. Each character reveals something more about this murder house. Several tragedies have taken place in this residence and each sounds worse than the last. Fans of well constructed stories, or of Bousman's earlier work (Saw III, Saw IV) will like what is revealed below. Though, Abattoir looks very different from Bousman's typical horror works. More on the film is available below. Release Date: 2016. Director: Darren Lynn Bousman.

Laff 2016 Interview: Darren Lynn Bousman on Making Impossible Movies and the Long Journey of Abattoir

  • DailyDead
Premiering tonight at the 2016 Los Angeles Film Festival is Darren Lynn Bousman’s Abattoir, a neo-noir-infused horror film that follows a reporter (Jessica Lowndes) investigating a mysterious man by the name of Jebediah Crone (Dayton Callie), who collects the rooms of violent crime scenes as part of his plan to build a home based entirely upon murder. Abattoir also co-stars Lin Shaye, Joe Anderson, J. Larose, and Michael Paré.

Daily Dead recently had the chance to speak with Bousman about his return to horror for his latest film, why he thrives on making “un-makeable” films, and the long journey of Abattoir from page to screen.

[Writer’s Note: Full disclosure, my significant other (and sometimes contributor to Daily Dead) edited Abattoir, so while we will not be reviewing it, we thought an interview with Bousman would be an appropriate way to give Daily Dead readers insights into the film.]

Let’s start at the beginning and talk about the evolution of Abattoir from the graphic novel to the feature film version. This has been a long time coming.

Looking for good books about the movies to read? We've got a bumper selection of recommendations right here...

A confession. I actually started writing this article in 2013, and the reason you've only reading it now is that I've made sure I've read every book on this list, save for one or two where I've marked otherwise. As such, what you're getting is a very personal list of recommendations. Each of these books has at least something to it that I think is of interest to someone wanting to learn more about film - or just enjoy stories of movie making.

I've tended to avoid picture books, with one exception, as these ones I've chosen are all intended to be chock-full of words, to relax with at the end of a long day. Which is what I did. There are one or two notable omissions, as I'm still

Contest: Win a Copy of Midian Unmade: Tales Of Clive Barker’S Nightbreed

  • DailyDead
Now available from Tor Books is the Nightbreed sequel anthology, Midian Unmade: Tales of Clive Barker's Nightbreed, featuring an introduction by Barker and short stories from a wide range of great writers. We've been provided with one copy of Midian Unmade: Tales of Clive Barker's Nightbreed to give away.

"Clive Barker's Nightbreed has been controversial since the moment it was released in a version edited by the studio and roundly condemned by Barker, who wrote and directed the movie. A virtually instant cult film based on Barker's novella Cabal, it was nominated for three Saturn Awards and won several prizes at European film festivals.

Midian Unmade tells the stories of the Nightbreed after the fall of their city, Midian. Driven from their homes, their friends and family members slain before their eyes, the monsters become a mostly-hidden diaspora. Some are hunted; others, hunters. Some seek refuge. Others want revenge.

‘Midian Unmade: Tales of Clive Barker’s Nightbreed’ Hardcover Sequel Anthology

  • DailyDead
Many monsters came to Midian seeking shelter from the hate of humanity. That hate brought death and destruction to the supposedly safe haven in the 1988 novel, Cabal, and its film adaptation, Nightbreed (1990), leaving viewers to wonder what Clive Barker's eclectic cast of characters would do next. On July 28th, Tor Books will release a highly anticipated 300+ page answer (in both hardcover and Kindle) to that question with the Nightbreed sequel anthology, Midian Unmade: Tales of Clive Barker's Nightbreed. Featuring an introduction by Barker and short stories from a wide range of great writers (including David J. Schow, C. Robert Cargill, and Weston Ochse), this Nightbreed collection explores what happened after the last page was turned and the end credits rolled in Barker's brilliant world of the lost and lonely.
