Blacula

Dracula the king of the vampires, much like his undead cousin the Zombie, has become an overused and somewhat stale staple of genre cinema. But that doesn’t mean that there’s not at least some good blood to be sucked from the cinematic neck of this most enduring horror icon. Join Deadly Movies as we explore the best incarnations of the lord of darkness. PS that’s a Sesame Street joke in the title.., hello, is this thing on?

Top 5 World Cup Football Player/Horror Movie Lookalikes

Frank Ribery Sloth Goonies

Football/Soccer has its fare share of odd looking players, but what World Cup players would slip easily into the world of horror without even the need for prosthetics? By the way I couldn’t resist poor Frank Ribery (who suffered a terrible injuries in a car accident) and the popular Sloth comparison. Sorry. Onwards! Continue reading

Top 5 Nazi Zombie Movies

zombie header

Nazis. Can’t live with them.., Can’t live with them. As soon as zombies became a credible way of making money it was only a matter of time before history’s greatest real-life bad guys, and all round assholes, became zombie exploitation fodder. Interestingly, as you’ll see below, as with World War 2, filmmakers from around the world lined up to turn Hitler’s blondes into Romero shufflers. It’s as if for some strange reason everyone enjoys decapitating a Nazi. Odd that.

Godzilla March Trailer 8

For Godzilla fans May can’t come around quick enough. But March has bought about an unforeseen treat, a new Godzilla trailer with all new footage.

Top 5 Movie Monsters of the 1980s

Q the winged serpent 1982 close

The 80s was a rich breeding ground for horror and sci-fi, for some it was the peak. Undoubtably the decade produced absolute classics when it came to monsters and creatures. With that in mind, just as we did with the Top 5 Monsters of the 1990s, let’s make this tough for ourselves with some house rules: 1) The creature has to be a new film from the decade and not a sequel to a movie from previous decades (so that’s goodbye to Aliens, King Kong, and Godzilla). 2) ‘Monsters’ refers to proper monsters, beast type creatures that offer up something a little different from the normal humanoid-type beings we’re all so used to (so that’s goodbye to Freddy, Jason, Michael et al). 3) I’ll try and avoid animals, both current and extinct (so that’s goodbye giant crocodiles, alligators, sharks, and Cujo!). 4) Let’s get it on.., Continue reading

Harold Ramis Dies Age 69

haroldramis

I feel compelled to write a little something today on the sad passing of actor, writer, and director Harold Ramis. I think I’m writing this as a little soul searching for the 10 year old me who would – very literally – watch a VHS copy of Ghostbusters daily. The cassette was a Christmas present from my parents and my first ever PG rated movie, which made me feel particularly grownup. I have no idea how old I would have been that Christmas, but I’d hazard a guess of five or six. I watched that movie so may times that the vinyl cover that holds the paper sleeve in place was sellotaped to the box and the tape itself was heavily scratched and scuffed from over viewing (except for the librarian scene which a skipped over for years).

Anyway, the point is that I watched and studied the faces of Ramis, Aykroyd, and Murray daily. As a child when you are completely unaware of the existence of celebrities and a filmmaking process, all you know are the faces of the people on screen. Later, of course, as I became aware of life outside Ghostbusters I would watch anything with these three in it leading me into the films of their peers; actors like Belushi, Chase, Martin, Moranis, and Candy, and their respective work, and so on. While many creative people contributed to the success and wonderment that is Ghostbusters, it was those repeat viewings, a process impossible to pre-VHS generations, where Ramis, Aykroyd, and Maurray became these unknown familiars to me, and, along with that VHS, I have taken them with me everyday since.

In short Harold Ramis’s body of work as an actor, writer, and director had a great effect personally on millions of people, including me as just one, and we are all eternally grateful and will miss him dearly as fans and distant admirers. I think if we all go out today and eat a 35 foott long Twinkie weighting approximately 600 lbs, Harold would be very happy.

Top 5 Terrible Godzilla Suits (aka Godzilla at his worst) 最悪のゴジラスーツ

facepalm-Godzilla

In 28 movies stretching nearly 60 years Godzilla has shown remarkable staying power in pop culture. Neither Japan nor Hollywood have been able to replicate that kind of longevity in sci-fi or horror, in fact, outside of James Bond, in any genre. Just think, Godzilla has more movies to his name than King Kong, Alien, Predator, Jaws, and Jurassic Park combined, with numbers to spare. However, It’s been a wonder, at times, how the King of Monsters ever got this far when you consider some of the entries. So lets take a look at some of the very worst Godzilla incarnations to date (remember to check out Deadly Movies Top 5 Godzilla Suits too here): Continue reading

How BIG is the new Godzilla?

1724937_718331444863929_76056193_n

The new Godzilla poster has sent many a tongue wagging over the sheer scale of the beast. At first glance he would appear to be twice the size (more if you consider the perspective) of the  Transamerica Pyramid, leaving you with the reasonable conclusion that Godzilla will come in at some 520 meters (1,700 feet). Wow! That’s a lot of Goji.  Continue reading

Top 5 Godzilla Suits (aka the top badass incarnations of the king) 最高のゴジラスーツ

Suit_large

It’s been 60 years, 28 movies, and one Matthew Broderick since Godzilla first munched and crunched his way across Japan. In that time the King of the Monsters has had many a career high and low. Each movie sees a different take on the creature, often using a different suit design. So join Deadly Movies, sushi firmly in cheek and sake snugly in enema, as we take a look at the greatest Godzilla suits to date: Continue reading
