Land of the Dead

Director: George A. Romero
Screenwriter: George A. Romero
Cast: Simon Baker, Dennis Hopper, Asia Argento, Robert Joy, Eugene Clark, John Leguizamo
Distributor: Scream Factory
Rated R/Not Rated | 93/97 Minutes
Release Date: October 31, 2017

In 2005, 20 years after Day Of The Dead, Legendary filmmaker George A. Romero returned to the zombie subgenre he created with Land Of The Dead, the fourth entry in the writer-director’s Living Dead series.

Years after the zombie apocalypse, most of the United States is an uninhabited wasteland. Survivors have set up heavily fortified outposts across the country. In Pennsylvania, survivors have fled to the Golden Triangle district of Pittsburgh. Bordered by rivers and massive electric fences, Steel City has become a sanctuary for what’s left of humanity.

While most of the remaining population lives in squalor, the rich and powerful live comfortably in a luxury high-rise called Fiddler’s Green. Paul Kaufman (Dennis Hopper), the city’s Trump-esque ruler, has funded the Dead Reckoning project, an armored personnel vehicle that will bring the good people of Pittsburgh food and medical supplies, as well as necessities like liquor and cigars.

Blu-ray Review: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (Collector's Edition)

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2
Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Edition
Director: Tobe Hooper
Screenwriter: L. M. Kit Carson
Cast: Dennis Hopper, Caroline Williams, Jim Siedow, Bill Johnson, Bill Moseley, Lou Perryman
Distributor: Scream Factory
Rated R | 101 Minutes
Release Date: April 19, 2016

“I’m the Lord of the Harvest!”

When The Texas Chain Saw Massacre was released in 1974, it changed the face of horror. Tobe Hooper‘s film, about a group of friends who fall victim to a family of cannibals, remains one of the greatest – and most controversial – horror movies of all time.

Twelve years later, the horror landscape had shifted dramatically. Hooper’s low-budget exploitation flick inspired countless films, including John Carpenter’s Halloween and Ridley Scott’s Alien. By 1986, the slasher subgenre was in full swing, with franchises like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street releasing sequels each year.

Dennis Hopper in The Last Film Festival

Almost five years ago now, Dennis Hopper passed away at the age of 74 after a lengthy battle with cancer. But before Hopper departed, he made one final film, an indie flick titled The Last Film Festival, in which he plays a Hollywood producer trying to get his latest flop of a movie into any film festival that will accept it…which as it turns out is only one.

The movie has already been filmed for the most part, but production ended when Hopper died, just before his role was set to wrap up. For the fifth anniversary of his passing director Linda Yellen wants to finish and release the movie this year, but some additional funding is required to make it happen.

To get the movie completed a Kickstarter campaign was created to include Hopper’s fans and avoid certain obstacles. You can read more about how Hopper came to be involved in the project, what the movie is about, why your help is needed, and also watch the Kickstarter video below.

‘King Of The B’s’ Roger Corman Launching Paid YouTube Channel This Summer

Roger Corman

Roger Corman may be known to most as the premiere producer of some of the finest exploitation movies ever made, but to those in the know he is also one of the most important and influential figures in the entertainment industry. Many of Hollywood’s finest talents on both sides of the camera owe their careers in some part to the go-for-broke tutelage they were given by working for Corman, including filmmakers like Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, Robert Towne, Peter Bogdanovich, and Ron Howard, and actors like Jack Nicholson, Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Bruce Dern, and Robert Englund. Corman is a legend, and that is the undisputed truth.

This summer Corman is bringing a catalog of over 400 films he produced and/or directed to the vast cybernetic landscape of the Internet as he launches Corman’s Drive-In, a YouTube channel that will offer up his films for viewing for a fee still yet to be determined.

Dennis Hopper

Actor Dennis Hopper has passed away at the age of 74 after a long fight with prostate cancer. The star had been bravely battling the ferocious disease for many years now, and though the news seemed imminent, it is no less tragic.

With appearances on the Starz series Crash and roles in the movies Hell Ride, Elegy, and Swing Vote, the actor kept right on working until the end of his life. Hopper even has two more films on the one — one called The Last Film Festival that’s finished, and another in post-production called Alpha and Omega which he did the voice of Tony.

But it was a nasty and seemingly out-of-nowhere divorce from his wife of 14-years that had him in the headlines lately, and it was devastating to him both financially and physically. Before his passing, multiple reports indicated that his illness was advanced and that he weighed little more than 100 lbs, and that he was almost completely broke from the divorce.

Thankfully, despite being so sick, Hopper fought tooth and nail against his disease, which allowed him to be there when he was awarded his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in late March, and to see his 74th birthday recently.
