More of this, please!

Shudder just added two classic horror movies from the 1970’s. They are brought to you by Dan Curtis, who also made Burnt Offerings & Dark Shadows.  The movies are an anthology, “Dead of Night” and a vampire flick, “Dan Curtis’ Dracula”.

Dead of Night

Dead of Night is an anthology, with stories about a vintage car that transports its driver back to 1926, the mistress of an old mansion who is terrified by vampires and a mother tormented by her dead son Bobby.  It stars a baby-faced Ed Begly Jr., Patrick Macnee, Anjanette Comer, Horst Bucholtz & Joan Hackett.

If you’re a fan of older horror, or you’re over the age of 25, I’d advise you to avoid the reviews on the site. One of them is complaining that this movie is a “Twilight Zone ripoff”. Well if you actually knew anything about the Twilight Zone, you’d know that Richard Matheson wrote a lot of those stories, and he wrote these stories, so of course, there will be a similar vibe. And I’m not sure how that’s even a bad thing? For me, it’s a huge plus!

Dan Curtis’ Dracula

“Jack Palance stars in this terrifying adaptation of Bram Stoker’s classic vampire legend written for the screen by sci-fi/horror master Richard Matheson and produced by the legendary Dan Curtis. Palance is Count Dracula, whose centuries-old existence is threatened after he attacks the lovely Lucy Westenra and her fiancé calls in famed vampire hunter Dr. Van Helsing to investigate.”

Cast: Jack Palance, Simon Ward, Nigel Davenport, Pamela Brown, Fiona Lewis

TV execs are taking the hint, and it seems like every channel is getting into the Halloween spirit this year. Here are a few of them. I’ll update this post as more programming is announced.

James and his wife Casey load up their teenage kids and head to a remote cabin in Oregon for a weekend trip. When James ventures into the dark, snowy forest in search of firewood, he encounters a woman hidden in the frozen terrain and barely alive. James brings her back to the cabin for help, but the family has no way of knowing that the woman’s presence will be the catalyst for a series of horrifying events and bloody carnage that will change their lives forever. Mixing original storytelling with timeless supernatural elements.

DEAD NIGHT– the directorial debut of Bradford Baruh – features a stellar cast of genre favourites including Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator), Brea Grant (A Ghost Story) and AJ Bowen (You’re Next) and delivers a wild and terrifying weekend away. The Dark Sky Films 2018 theatrical release premiered at the Fantastic Fest. Jennie Kermode of Eye for Film called it “an ambitious film whose strength is in its strangeness.”
