Attention Upstate New Yorkers: The Buffalo Screams Horror Film Festival has released this year’s dates as well as revealing that the opening night ceremonies will include a special 30th anniversary screening of The Burning, featuring an appearance by writer and producer Roy Frumkes.

Weighing in at five days and leading up to Halloween (October 26th-30th), this is going to make Halloween plans much easier for you kids in the Northeast. The festival organizers are keeping Buffalo Screams at the same location as before – The Screening Room Cinema Cafe in Amherst.

Emil Novak, filmmaker and co-founder of the festival along with Greg Lamberson (Slime City Massacre), had this to say about Frumkes and The Burning, “The Burning was shot in Tonawanda, 20 minutes from here. We have an active independent horror filmmaking community in Buffalo, and it’s easy to pinpoint this classic 1981 slasher film as the beginning of the movement here. We’re actively searching for locals who worked on the film to participate in the festivities.”

Lamberson adds, “Roy was my teacher back at the School of Visual Arts in 1982 and 1983, and we’ve remained friends. I’ve brought him to Buffalo a number of times, and this time it’s to honor him for his important contributions to the genre, both as a filmmaker and as a teacher.”

Buffalo Screams will be making more announcements shortly regarding the rest of the lineup and most special guests. In the meantime keep your eyes on the official Buffalo Screams Horror Film Festival website. The deadline for film submissions is September 15th; click here for the submissions page.

Dario Argento’s 1971 classic The Cat o’ Nine Tails is set to whip its way onto a limited edition UK Blu-ray release on January 29, courtesy of Arrow Video.

To celebrate the release, which comes sporting a brand new 4K restoration from the original camera negative, plus an impressive stack of extras (see below for the list), here’s an exclusive clip featuring some of that old Argento giallo goodness we all know, love… and sadly miss.

Extras on this Arrow Video release include:

  • New audio commentary by critics Alan Jones and Kim Newman
  • New interviews with co-writer/director Dario Argento, co-writer Dardano Sacchetti, actress Cinzia De Carolis and production manager Angelo Iacono
  • Script pages for the lost original ending, translated into English for the first time
  • Original Italian and international theatrical trailers
  • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Candice Tripp
  • Double-sided fold-out poster
  • 4 lobby card reproductions
  • Limited edition booklet illustrated by Matt Griffin, featuring an essay on the film by Dario Argento, and new writing by Barry Forshaw, Troy Howarth and Howard Hughes

 
Synopsis:
When a break-in occurs at a secretive genetics institute, blind puzzle-maker Franco Arnò, who overheard an attempt to blackmail one of the institute’s scientists shortly before the robbery, teams up with intrepid reporter Carlo Giordani to crack the case. But before long the bodies begin to pile up and the two amateur sleuths find their own lives imperilled in their search for the truth. And worse still, Lori, Franco’s young niece, may also be in the killer’s sights…

Massive Collection of Original Stephen King Manuscripts Tragically Lost in Flood

Published

on

The last couple of years have seen a massive resurgence in movies and TV adapting the works of noted author Stephen King. We got “The Mist”, “Mr. Mercedes”, “11.22.63”, “Castle Rock”, The Dark Tower, IT, Gerald’s Game, Cell, and more. The power of his words have clearly resonated across generations and are impacting viewers today just as much as they did readers upon release. For Bangor, ME resident Gerald Winters, King’s work is more than a passion, it was his life’s calling.

According to the Maine Public, Winters moved to the United States from Thailand over a year ago and established his own business, Gerald Winters & Son. A rare book store, it was Winters’ intention to collect and store as much of King’s original work as possible, including first editions, manuscripts, signed copies, artwork, and more. The collection numbered in the thousands, a treasure trove of all things King.

Tragically, some 2,000 pieces of his collection was irreparably damaged when a water main burst in front of his business, flooding his store’s basement with several feet of water, soaking everything. “You can’t replace this stuff,” he told the site. He estimates that only 10% of his store’s inventory was okay after the incident.

Many of us have our own personal collections of something, be it movies, books, comics, toys, instruments, records… Whatever it is that you hold dear, that is what Winters felt towards his collection, which included items he traveled the world to acquire. It’s beyond heartbreaking to hear of his story.

Just days ahead of its release, we’ve teamed up with IFC Midnight to bring you an exclusive clip from their upcoming supernatural horror film The Midnight Man, which stars Robert Englund, Lin Shaye, and Gabrielle Haugh.

The Midnight Man hits theaters, VOD, and digital platforms on January 22, 2018.

Synopsis:
It was supposed to be just an urban legend… On a snowy night in her grandmother’s sprawling mansion, teenage Alex (Gabrielle Haugh) and her best friend Miles (Grayson Gabriel) discover a mysterious box hidden away in the attic. Inside are instructions for The Midnight Game, an ancient Pagan ritual said to summon the players’ greatest fears. It all seems like harmless fun—until they unleash the terrifying spirit of The Midnight Man, an unholy force who pits them against their darkest demons and dares them to survive. Horror legends Robert Englund and Lin Shaye (A Nightmare on Elm Street) co-star in this terrifying, supernatural game of cat and mouse. Play at your own risk…
