Kill, Baby… Kill!: Bava’s Beautiful Best

When a filmmaker creates a number of movies that qualify for masterpiece status, it becomes nearly impossible to quantifiably conclude which one stands above the rest as his or her single greatest achievement. We have our favorites, of course, but can any of us really name which of Hitchcock’s films is his definitive best? Or Kurosawa’s? Or Spielberg’s? The same is true of Mario Bava, the great Italian director who made films across a number of genres but who is best known for his work in horror. How does one name a single “best” movie from the man responsible for Black Sunday and Blood and Black Lace and The Whip and the Body and Black Sabbath? It’s like naming a favorite child.

While his 1966 movie Kill, Baby... Kill! isn’t always named as being one of Bava’s best, it absolutely deserves to be part of the conversation and is,

Laura Antonelli, Italian Actress and Sex Symbol, Dies at 73

Laura Antonelli, Italian Actress and Sex Symbol, Dies at 73
Rome — Actress Laura Antonelli, who became an Italian sex symbol in the 1970s and worked with masters Luchino Visconti, Dino Risi, and Ettore Scola, proving her true thesping talent over a career spanning 45 movies during almost four decades, died Monday at her home in Ladispoli near Rome. She was 73.

Antonelli died of a heart attack in modest housing provided by Ladispoli social services in 2009. Her career had taken a tragic turn in the 1990s after cocaine-related charges were pressed against her in 1991. She was cleared of the charges in 2006.

Born Laura Antonaz in 1941, in Pola, which is now in Croatia but was then part of Italy, Laura Antonelli grew up in Italian post-World War II refugee camps before her family subsequently relocated to Naples.

After starting out making TV commercials for soft drinks and bedsheets she landed minor roles in Italian erotic genre movies and comedies, including Mario Bava’s

'Malicious' Sex Symbol Who Became a Worldwide Sensation in the '70s Found Dead: Antonelli Led Troubled, Tragic Life

Laura Antonelli: 'Malizia' actress. Laura Antonelli: 'Malizia' sex symbol who led troubled life found dead (Note: This Laura Antonelli article is currently being revised and expanded.) Laura Antonelli, for a brief while an international star thanks to scandalous sex-themed movies such as Malizia and The Divine Nymph, and who later became enmeshed in scandal and personal turmoil, was found dead by her housekeeper on Monday morning, June 22, '15, at her home in Ladispoli, in the outskirts of Rome. Antonelli had reportedly suffered a fatal heart attack. She was 73. Long after her cinema heyday, in the early '90s Antonelli made headlines following a botched plastic surgery that left her face somewhat disfigured. Also at that time, she found herself accused of drug trafficking by Italian authorities. Both incidents led to lengthy, traumatizing judicial battles. From gym teacher to 'girl bomb' Born Laura Antonaz on Nov. 28, 1941, in Pula, in the then Italian province of Istria,

Happy Birthday Vincent Price! A Look Back at Vincentennial

Today is Vincent Price’s 104th Birthday! Price was born here in St. Louis on this date in 1911 and is the most iconic movie star to hail from our city. Price, who died October 25th 1993, was also a gourmand, author, stage actor, speaker, world-class art collector, raconteur, and all-around Renaissance man. Vincent Price was simply one of the most remarkable people of the 20th Century. Four years ago we had the opportunity to celebrate his 100th birthday and St. Louis was the place to do it. I teamed up with Cinema St. Louis to present Vincentennial, The Vincent Price 100th Birthday Celebration, an event that lasted through much of the Spring of 2011. The following year Vincentennial won two coveted Rondo Awards, one for “Best Fan Event” and a second for myself as “Monster Kid of the Year” for directing the event. The Rondo Awards are prestigious Fan Awards given out

One of our favorite horror events of the year is Drive-In Super Monster-Rama, which takes place every September and shows eight classic horror movies over two nights on a huge drive-in screen.

Vincentennial Nominated for a Rondo Award for Best Fan Event

Vincentennial, the Vincent Price 100th Birthday Celebration, which took place here in St. Louis last Spring and was covered in depth at We Are Movie Geeks, has been nominated for a Rondo Award for “Best Fan Event”. Now in their tenth year, The Rondo Awards are prestigious Fan Awards given out annually for the year’s best horror-related stuff–movies, magazines,articles, toys, etc. The Rondos are completely fan-based; nominees are selected by horror film fans and focus specifically on the horror genre. The awards are debated at The Classic Horror Film Board and presented at the Wonderfest Hobby Expo in May in Louisville, Ky. The awards are named for Rondo Hatton, the 1940′s-era character actor whose glandular disease resulted in a misshapen face and brutish appearance (an article I wrote for Wamg about Mr. Hatton can be found Here)

The Rondos have 31 categories covering all aspects of film and the horror genre in general,

Vincentennial: Champagne For Caesar Rescheduled

Due to technical difficulties beyond our control, we were unable to show the Champagne For Caesar and Baron Of Arizona at our Vincentennial Vincent Price Film Festival last night. We are now showing the 35mm print of Champagne For Caesar Thursday night (May 26th) at 9:15 after the screening of Witchfinder General at Brown Hall on the campus of Washington University. Cinema St. Louis will be showing Baron Of Arizona at the St. Louis International Film Festival in November. Super-8 Vincent Price Movie Madness is still playing at The Way Out Club Thursday night starting at 10pm and there will be a bonus element at that: a 16mm print of Dr. Goldfoot And The Girl Bombs (1966), a film considered by Price scholars to be his worst but one that is actually a campy, kitschy blast from the past. Dr. Goldfoot And The Girl Bombs will begin at 11:30 at The Way Out Club.

Vincentennial: All-Vincent Price Globe-Democrat Published

The all-Vincent Price issue of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat is hot off the presses!. The Globe is a monthly paper run by Steve DeBellis, a well know St. Louis historian, and it’s the largest one-man newspaper in the world. The concept of the Globe is that there is an old historic headline, then all the articles in that issue are written as if it’s the year that the headline is from. Steve’s been publishing this paper since 1986 (it was called the St. Louis Inquirer until 1994 when he bought the naming rights to the Globe, which had been a major daily for over 100 years until it folded in 1986).

Steve is and last summer I was introduced to Steve, a huge Vincent Price fan, last summer and we collaborated on an all-Vincent Price issue of the Globe-Democrat to tie into the Vincentennial. This issue deviates from the

Not Available on DVD: Dr. Goldfoot And The Girl Bombs

Article by Dana Jung

Dr. Goldfoot And The Bikini Machine (1965) was a wild and funny send-up of beach movies, James Bond spy films, and horror movie cliches. It boasted Frankie Avalon, Dwayne Hickman (TVs Dobie Gillis), and the beautiful Susan Hart as a robot who speaks in a variety of foreign accents. The great Vincent Price also stars as the mad scientist/evil supervillain of the title, a role he would reprise in both a television musical special promoting the film, The Wild Weird World Of Dr. Goldfoot (which also included Hart), and the Italian-made sequel Dr. Goldfoot And The Girl Bombs (1966), directed by giallo and horror meistro Mario Bava. And while Bikini Machine and Wild Weird World have both been released on DVD (but are currently out-of-print), the Girl Bombs sequel still has yet to find a home on DVD.
