Daniel Roebuck - Dr. Shocker's Auction of HorrorDaniel Roebuck has spent a lifetime amassing one of the world’s most impressive collections of horror memorabilia. However, that collection is now going to auction, and you can take a piece home with you!

Roebuck is more commonly known as Dr. Shocker, and on October 26, the Chinese 6 Theaters (6925 Hollywood Boulevard, Hollywood, CA 90028) will host Dr. Shocker’s Auction of Horror. Read on for the gory details, and be sure to visit the official website of Daniel Roebuck, aka Dr. Shocker!

From the Press Release
In what will surely be the greatest monster matchup since Abbott and Costello met Frankenstein in 1948, Blacksparrow Auctions is teaming up with Dr. Shocker (noted character actor Daniel Roebuck’s alter ego) to offer movie fans a once in a lifetime collectible event, Dr. Shocker’s Auction of Horror!

This will be a rare opportunity to relive the pop culture explosion of classic monster and horror memorabilia of the late 20th century through the collection of one of its most avid fans, Daniel Roebuck. For nearly half a century, Roebuck has fostered a passion for classic monster and horror film collectibles. This love for all things monster related eventually grew so large that Roebuck, inspired by Forry Ackerman and Bob Burns, opened his own museum, Dr. Shocker’s House of Horror! Now this comprehensive cross-section of his amassed treasures is being passed on, including a vintage Bride of Frankenstein theatrical banner poster, dozens of lobby cards, autographs, original artwork, wax figures, vintage dolls, props, life masks, and many of the classic toys once offered in the pages of Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine. The live auction event will take place at the Chinese 6 Theatres of the world famous TCL Chinese Theatres in Hollywood, CA on October 26, 2013. A print catalog, featuring ShockerVision, is available for pre-order now at BlackSparrowAuctions.com.

Adding to the excitement of the auction event, Blacksparrow Auctions is pleased to announce the world premiere of Roebuck’s latest Dr. Shocker project, Dr. Shocker’s Vault of Horror, on October 9th at the same Chinese 6 Theatres. This DVD release will feature a veritable BOO-POURRI of ghoulish delights, including Monstermaniacs, a documentary about the monster collecting craze featuring Roebuck’s historic collection as its centerpiece. Seating is limited for the one night only big screen premiere. RSVP at blacksparrowauctions@gmail.com.

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation – First Trailer and Artwork!

Published

on

As a fan of flicks like Mad Monster Party, I was surprisingly pleased with the last two Hotel Transylvania affairs. For my money you can put the classic monsters in just about anything, and I’ll watch it happily, and these animated features feel like a natural progression of the 1967 Rankin and Bass classic. Which is why I’m looking forward to Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, and if you are too, check out the film’s new trailer and poster.

Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, who co-wrote the film with Michael McCullers, Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation features the voices of Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Fran Drescher, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon, David Spade, Keegan-Michael Key, and Mel Brooks.

Look for it in theaters on July 13, 2018.

Synopsis:
In Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, join our favorite monster family as they embark on a vacation on a luxury monster cruise ship so Drac can take a summer vacation from providing everyone else’s vacation at the hotel. It’s smooth sailing for Drac’s Pack as the monsters indulge in all of the shipboard fun the cruise has to offer, from monster volleyball to exotic excursions, and catching up on their moon tans.

But the dream vacation turns into a nightmare when Mavis realizes Drac has fallen for the mysterious captain of the ship, Ericka, who hides a dangerous secret that could destroy all of monsterkind.

Universal Acquires Riley Sager’s Final Girls for Film Adaptation

Published

on

The “final girl” has long been a staple of the horror film genre, and lately there have been several films with just about that very same title focusing on her and/or them. Well, guess what… there’s another one coming as Deadline is reporting that Universal Pictures has won a bidding battle to option rights for Final Girls, the bestselling novel from Riley Sager that hit shelves this past July.

The movie adaptation will be produced by Anonymous Content’s Nicole Clemens along with Sugar23’s Ashley Zalta and Michael Sugar as that stand-alone company continues to ramp up.

Sager’s book centers on Quincy Carpenter, who 10 years ago as a college student went on vacation to Pine Cottage with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horror movie-scale massacre. In an instant, the press dubbed her a “Final Girl,” coined for the group of similar survivors.

We’ll have more for you on this as it comes.
