"Evil Dead": The Remake

Yet another classic horror film that is entirely unique and probably doesn't need any sort of remake is getting remade... and this time, at the behest of its original director. Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures is gearing up to remake The Evil Dead. Raimi will not direct the film himself, but is actively looking for a new person to take the helm. Although there's been no official casting, word has come down the pike that both Seann William Scott (American Pie) and Justin Theroux (Mulholland Drive) are strong contenders to replace Bruce Campbell as Ash.

Lions Gate to Remake "Scanners"

David Cronenberg's getting the remake treatment lately. Lions Gate is working on a new version of Scanners, inheriting the project from its days at the recently bought-out Artisan. Pierre David, René Malo and Clark Peterson will serve as producers. James Wan (Saw) has already passed on directing (he also passed on Fox's in-the-works remake of The Fly).

Lost Ed Wood Film Surfaces

Just in time for Halloween, a group of Ed Wood aficionados have announced that they've discovered the highly amusing Z-grade director's last known film, Necromania. Made in 1971 for less than $7,000, the pornographic horror movie tells the tale of a couple who search for occult means to spice up their sex life.(read more...)

Jeremy Kasten Interview

Jeremy Kasten

Anybody familiar with The Attic Expeditions (and if you're not, you should be) can tell you that it's a film loaded with interesting visuals and intriguing editing. The man behind the madness is Jeremy Kasten. We sat down with the director in August 2004 while he was working on the pre-production of his next feature...

Lloyd Kaufman Interview

Lloyd Kaufman

The man you're about to read about is utterly insane... or so he seems. The President of Troma Films and the creator of the Toxic Avenger (as he is often introduced) is very much as he appears in the numerous vignettes of Troma's Edge TV (found on finer Troma DVDs everywhere) - and yet has a deeper core of wild insight into classic film, Corporate America, and New York's Finest.

I had the honor and privilege of conversing with Lloyd early in August of 2002, right in the middle of his hectic schedule. I should have known I was in for a treat when Lloyd broke traditional interviewing technique and asked me the first question...

Lloyd Kaufman: Where are you, by the way?

Classic-Horror: I'm in Iowa.

The 2001 Caligari's Cabinet Awards

It's difficult to believe that we've been running this poll for three years now, but it's true. Every year in that time, dedicated readers have cast their votes for their favorite horror films of all time, and every year we rank 'em as they're called. Voting in this year's Caligari's Cabinet Awards occured between November 1st and December 31st, 2001 and was open to all readers of Classic-Horror.com.

The list never gets any less surprising, either. Sure, there are some titles that have made it every year, but the ones that come and go are what's truly fascinating. For instance, this year, Horror of Dracula, a mainstay of the first and second lists, dropped off into Honorable Mention, while The Beyond, which wasn't even ranked last year, made it into the main list.(read more...)

Yes, all the greatest horror films are here tonight, in bated breath to see which are "among the best," which are "the cream of the crop," and what is "the greatest horror movie ever made!"(read more...)

Ed Wood's Universe

Ever stop to think that maybe, just maybe, Edward D. Wood, Jr., bad movie king, had a tinge of genius? Shudder if you will, but consider it. Modern indie filmmaker Kevin Smith has taken at least one of Wood's narrative devices: a consistent universe.(read more...)

Frank Dello Stritto Interview

Early in September I was contacted by the two authors of a book entitled "Vampire Over London," a work that attempted to bring to light the 8 months that Bela Lugosi spent in England between 1951 and 1952. They wanted me to help publicize the book as they were publishing it independently. I agreed to interview the one in the United States, Frank Dello Stritto. What came from that was some fascinating insight into the secret life of Bela Lugosi.
