Hey You! Get Outta My Soul!

With the September 9th release of Lakeshore Entertainment's The Exorcism of Emily Rose coming up, I thought it'd be a good time to take a look at the history of exorcism in the modern horror film. My research revealed something that I really should have figured out sooner -- with few exceptions, every single exorcism film made after 1973 is either a rip-off or blatant cash-in on The Exorcist.

No country put out more of these rip-offs than Italy. The following is just a brief listing of the Italian exorcism films that came in the wake of The Exorcist. This is by no means definitive, and I encourage any oversights to be e-mailed to me through our contact form.

Gore and Loathing in Phoenix V: The Recasting of "One Bloody Night"

Part of a series of essays related to the on-going production of an Arizona-based indie horror film, One Bloody Night.

After the "weekend of hell" when all but the entire cast had quit or been let go, I had come to the conclusion that I would never cast a movie again. I immediately put this lesson to use as other members of the crew stepped up to the plate and took over the second round of casting.(read more...)

Gore and Loathing in Phoenix III: The Casting of "One Bloody Night"

Part of a series of essays related to the on-going production of an Arizona-based indie horror film, One Bloody Night.

I changed the ring on my cell phone recently; every time I heard the old ring it reminded me of actors. The thought that an actor, a prospective actor or someone who wants to give me news of actors, was possibly behind the ring of my cell made me cringe and want to curl up in my bed and hide my head under the covers.(read more...)

Gore and Loathing in Phoenix I: Conceiving "One Bloody Night"

"Why are you making a horror movie?" I get that one a lot here lately, and my pat answer is I've always liked horror movies and I've always wanted to make movies so it seems natural that I'd be cranking out horror flick.(read more...)

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...)

Hammer, We Hardly Knew Ye

I’m sure all you boils and ghouls remember the very first time you saw Peter Cushing swing across the screen in Brides of Dracula. Perhaps, you felt a twinge in your stomach when you saw Christopher Lee show his fangs for the first time in Horror of Dracula. Or maybe you just couldn’t help to be swept into the atmosphere of The Hound of the Baskervilles. Regardless, there is a certain feeling you expect to generate while watching the typical Hammer horror. To the classic horror fan, Hammer is to horror as plastic is the Michael Jackson’s nose. However, there is a whole other side the Hammer in which few classic horror fans venture to.(read more...)
