Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment’s manufacturing-on-demand program continues during the month of June with 29 films being released as part of MGM’s Limited Edition Collection. Unfortunately only one qualifies as real horror, but there’s another that should appeal to genre fans so we’re including some info on both for your perusal.

First up is 1958’s Curse of the Faceless Man – A stone figure is unearthed in Pompeii followed by a series of skull crushing murders. Stars Richard Anderson, Elaine Edwards, Adele Mara; irected by Edward L. Cahn.

Next is the mash-up entitled Haunted Summer from 1988 – Romantic poets Lord Byron and Percy Bysshe Shelley, along with Shelly’s future wife, Mary, and her beautiful stepsister, Claire, travel blissfully through Switzerland one summer. Both women share Shelley’s bed, while the tortured Lord Byron flounders in a secret relationship with his physician. They experiment with opium, “free love”, and the nature of good and evil. The events form the foundation for Mary Shelley’s famous novel, FRANKSTEIN. This drama is part surreal, part historical – of lust and fantasy, of ecstasy and horror, of the inner strings of creativity. Stars Philip Anglim, Alice Krige, Eric Stoltz; directed by Ivan Passer. A little something for everyone, right?

The rest of the 29 films slated for release in June range from 1954 to 1990 and include performances by Hollywood’s greats – Bob Hope, Anthony Hopkins, and Yul Brynner to name just a few. Most are crime dramas/noirs, thrillers, and comedies: Down Three Dark Streets (1954), Return to Treasure Island (1954), Quincannon, Frontier Scout (1956), The Killer Is Loose (1956), Hot Cars (1956), The Boss (1956), Gun Duel in Durango (1957), The Halliday Brand (1957), Lost Lagoon (1958), Riot in Juvenile Prison (1959), The Man in the Net (1959), Phaedra (1962), Call Me Bwana (1963), Johnny Cool (1963), Love Is a Ball (1963), A Rage to Live (1965), Riot on Sunset Strip (1967), Red, White, and Zero (aka The White Bus) (1967), A Midsummer Night’s Dream (1968), The File of the Golden Goose (1969), Cannon for Cordoba (1970), Adolf Hitler: My Part in His Downfall (1974), Hennessy (1975), Another Man, Another Chance (1977), April Morning (1987), The Iron Triangle (1989) and The Fourth War (1990).

Zac Efron Looks Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Ted Bundy

Published

on

We told you a while back that Zac Efron would be assuming the role of charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger’s new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (that title is a wondrous mouthful); and today Efron himself took to Twitter to share the first image of himself as Bundy. Check it out!

Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

Principal photography began back in October 2017.

Make a Date With The Devil and Father Amorth

Published

on

Well, that headline’s not entirely accurate… you wouldn’t want to be a third wheel now, would you? What we’re talking about here is William Friedkin’s new documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. In it Friedkin witnesses first-hand the work of the Vatican’s in-house exorcist; and if that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will!

Deadline is reporting today that we can expect to see the flick sometime this spring in theaters via The Orchard.

Known as the “Dean of Exorcists,” Father Amorth (who turned 92 not so long ago) has performed thousands of exorcism rituals to rid evil from the human body.

In the early 1970s when I directed The Exorcist, I had not witnessed an exorcism; but I wondered how close I had come to portraying reality,” Friedkin tells the site. “I had been curious to meet Father Amorth for many years; and when he granted permission to meet and film him in Rome last May, it was the opportunity to complete the circle and see how close that film came to reality.
