Horrorphilia Presents Horror Hits: Volume 10 – Goblin’s 40th Anniversary Mix

Horror Hits 10 
2012 marks the anniversary of the formation of the Italian prog-rock combo that
came to be known as Goblin.

Goblin started off as Oliver in 1972 with core group being: Claudio Simonetti
(Keyboards), Massimo Morante (Guitars), Fabio Pignatelli, and Walter Martino.
Later in late 1973, after additional members came and went, they changed their
name to Cherry Five, which did not last long, and after a few minimal releases
dropped the name and found new life as Goblin.
1975 marked Goblin’s first of many collaborations with director Dario Argento,
providing the soundtrack to the film Profondo Rosso (Deep Red). This teaming
would continue until 1982′s Tenebre with the dissolving of the band’s core lineup.
Throughout the following years, various members of the group continued to
contribute to Argento film scores.
With the 1978 release of Zombi, the Dario Argento cut of George A. Romero’s
Dawn of the Dead, Argento recruited Goblin to replace the stock library music
Romero used in his version.
Between various film scores, the band still somehow found the time to release
several albums of non soundtrack material including a concept album Il Fantastico
Viaggio del Bagarozzo Mark (The Fantastic Voyage of Mark the Cockroach).
In 2000, the main core of Morante, Pignatelli, and Simonetti reunited as Goblin for,
what else, but to compose the score for a new Dario Argento film Non Ho Sonno
(Sleepless). The band returned to recording new material and toured until 2009,
when Claudio Simonetti decided to leave the band once again.
Here is my small salute to a band I truly respect and helped me become interested
in, and appreciate that film music can really be an art, Goblin.

Dark Discussions Podcast Episode 049 - Jon Hewitt Focus: 2008's Acolytes

A little known director from Australia named Jon Hewitt has been making a number of fine independent productions for some time. However, in 2008 he brought his latest film Acolytes across the world presenting it at film festivals everywhere. After viewers had seen the film, it is no surprise that one of the movie’s biggest triumphs was winning the silver medal for the best film at Austin’s 2008’s Fantastic Fest (beating out such films as Martyrs, The Chaser, and Left Bank; losing only to Let the Right One In).
Acolytes merges horror, thriller, coming-of-age, and teenage angst together into a bleak tale of three young adults discovery of what may be a serial killer that lives in their midst. When our protagonists decide to take an unorthodox way of using their findings, their lives change where dark secrets emerge that will shake the very foundations of not only their community but their very lives.
Director Jon Hewitt arguably is one of today’s best directors of genre films anywhere in the world. Acolytes stars such fantastic talents as Joel Edgerton, Michael Dorman, Hanna Mangan Lawrence (in a star making performance), Joshua Payne, and Sebastion Gregory. Based in Down Under, our director is a talent that Dark Discussions believes everyone should learn more about. We discuss Mr. Hewitt and his breakout film in depth and why everyone should take a peek. So turn out the lights, pull out the popcorn, and go watch a very dark film by a director that Hollywood will soon know a whole lot more about.

Vicis Interimo Episode 109: Silent House

Welcome to episode 109! This week we review the new 2011/2012 movie 'Silent House', which is in theatres now. This movie had some unique qualities, as well as an excellent performance by Elizabeth Olsen. We also can't help but discuss how rude people are in movie theatres, and how it's almost not even worth going! Other short topics include the TV shows 'Face-Off' (season 2), 'Monster Man', 'Missing', 'Alcatraz', and 'Person of Interest'... are these worth a watch, or no? One thing we agree on is the Stephen King story 'N.' which can be seen and heard on You tube (find the link below). Thanks for joining us this week! We hope that our sound quality issues are behind us, and that this episode is enjoyable. Please join us next week for a special episode featuring Slug from the Slugcast podcast. We look forward to having him join us! smiley

Dark Discussions Podcast Episode 048 - 2012's Stiletto Film Fest (Women in Horror)

The month of February was named Women in Horror month and what better way to reflect on the prior month with a film festival devoted to women and horror. The second annual Stiletto Film Festival featuring women in horror and their work including acting, screenwriting, producing, and most certainly directing came to Boston. Megan Sacco, a New England based film maker, came up with an idea to celebrate women and their accomplishments in film and the horror genre. But even more importantly, up and coming indy film makers of the female persuasion get an opportunity to show their films to fans and critics alike.
Dark Discussions was able to attend and view many of the films and interview some of the fantastic talent both behind and in front of the cameras. Feature length films such as Susan Adriensen’s Under the Raven’s Wing and Julie Ufema’s Caveat were shown to an audience that was highly rewarded. The short film What They Say starring the beautiful Heather Dorff and stunning Kelsey Zukowski, both out of Chicago, was one of the high lights, and Seattle based film maker, Tonjia Atomic, had her minimalist film Companion leaving folks squirming in their seats. In attendance as judges included actresses Monique Dupree and Melanie Robel.
As the month celebrating women in horror ends, gorgeous actress Seregon O’Dassey tells us all about her work in genre cinema and the independent film scene. Also, author and novelist Hollie Snider discusses her fantasy epic novel with Lovecraftian elements entitled For the Rank of Master.
Dark Discussions would like to thank Megan Sacco for letting us focus an episode on her festival, those who attended, and allowing fans to learn about some projects that everyone should be aware of. Susan Adriensen, Kelsey Zukowski, and Heather Dorff let us interview them right after the showing. Others like Julie Ufema and Tonjia Atomic took time out of their day for skype interviews. Judges Monique Dupree and Melanie Robel blocked off a bit of the festival to let us get their thoughts. And both Seregon O’Dassey and Hollie Snider were wonderful enough to let us interview them for Women in Horror month and show us talent both on film and page. From this day on, horror fans will know that all that is horrible is not just a one gender tradition.

Welcome to episode 108! This week we review the 2004 Japanese film 'Marebito', by director Takashi Shimizu (Ju-On, The Grudge). We also watched Diary of a Wimpy Kid this week, since last week we mentioned the sequel.

Dark Discussions Podcast: Episode 047 - H.G. Wells' The War of the Worlds Part 1

The novel, The War of the Worlds, written in 1898 has been in print from first publication until today without interruption. H. G. Wells, author of such other novels as The Invisible Man and The Time Machine, presents a story about a war where an alien race of beings from the planet Mars turns their eyes towards Earth, a planet filled with resources and natural beauty, still untainted by pollution and toxins. Writing in journal format, Wells turns a simple science fiction story into a fearful prophecy of total war where civilians would become targets while burnt earth strategies would become the norm. Man’s dependence upon technology and communication would be nullified and humanity’s dominance of the world they live in would be no more.
The tale is a foretelling of things to come that peculiarly showed how an alien invasion was a figurative metaphor of how man’s inhumanity upon man would make the 20th century one of the most destructive in world history. With the world’s dependence on technology for a more pampered life, it also would bring with it dangers that were only forewarned in 1898. And the irony of the story is that what would stop the Martians would be bacteria, Earth’s smallest and tiniest organisms.
Dark Discussions, in this first part of a three part arc, discuss the novel, its importance to genre fiction, and the writer who came up with a story which at the time was an astoundingly original idea. Further discussion includes the first great interpretation of the story by Orson Welles’s Mercury Theater, a radio theater presentation that brought about a panic to those who listened thinking it to be an actual news bulletin. Orson Welles shows how in 1938 he would become one of the greatest actor/director’s in history while bringing his cohorts at the Mercury Theater (including composer Bernard Herrmann) to the attention of the world.

Dolls of Despair #3 Interview with Roxsy Tyler

There are few females in the horror film industry today who have more going on in their career, before the age of 30, then our favorite Horror Hostess, Roxsy Tyler, who is nominated for Horror Host of 2011 in the Rondos (VOTE NOW)! Although she has been working in the industry since 2007, Roxsy’s big film debut when she brought her Carnival of Horrors to life in the Spring of 2010, via Potent Media, accompanied by her co-hosts Christopher Walker, Christian Jude Grillo, Chuck Maher, Johnnie Howard. Roxy’s signature look is darkly gorgeous, always including her black top hat, goth/rocker clothing and clown like make-up, a beautiful yet hardened look compared to her everyday soft features, reddish brown hair and petite frame. Her love of the Marx Brothers shines through as Roxsy bosses the boys around her carnival while they share their, usually, cheesy B movie choice of the month.
Roxsy starred opposite Raine Brown in the 2010 release of Booley, Potent Pictures first feature film, a great revenge story that addresses the continual problem of bullying in schools. Roxsy also starred in the Tom Berdinski film, The Giant Rubber Monster Movie, which is nominated for a short film Rondo Award (VOTE NOW), alongside many other popular horror hosts. The much anticipated indie horror film, Deer Crossing, another Potent Pictures film, should be released in 2012, and is presently being accepted for screening in horror conventions and film festivals globally, four to date! Roxsy also has an acting role in Deer Crossing, that also stars Christopher Mann, Doug Bradley, Ernie Hudson, Laura Cottrel, KJ Linehan, and Chris Inlow, but she is also Co-Editor and did some still photography for it as well. Roxsy has proven her acting and writing ability, but she is also fast becoming experienced in all the other facets of filmmaking, directing, editing and working the camera! Please join us in welcoming Roxsy to the Dolls of Despair as she talks to Syn Stacy and Splatter Flick about her blossoming career in film.
