10 Brilliantly Self Aware Wes Craven Cameos

Fox

The death of Wes Craven has, unsurprisingly, seen fans and former collaborators coming out with glowing tributes to the creator of Last House On The Left, The Hills Have Eyes and A Nightmare On Elm Street. One recurring point has been to praise how Craven loved being perceived as a “Master of Horror”.

With the exception of 1999’s Music Of The Heart, Craven continued working almost entirely within the genre where he made his name; content for four decades in being known simply for scaring people silly.

Craven enjoyed his reputation as a purveyor of the dark and disturbing and, equally, enjoyed sending it up. The result of this was a side career that involved knowing cameos both in his own films and those of others – jokey fan pleasing appearances that will help ensure he remains a recognisable horror icon as much as those he created.

[Yuletide Terrors] Day 14: Silent Night

Throughout the month of December, we will be highlighting a film a day that has some tie into the holiday somehow. Some titles will be obvious, others won’t be. Some films will be good and, again, others won’t be. However, we think all titles are worth your time whether to give you chills inside your home or to make you drink more eggnog until you puke laughing.

The small sleepy town of Cryer, Wisconsin is ready for Christmas. Their annual Santa Claus Contest draws Santas from all over the country. But this year a Santa comes to town to punish those that have been naughty. The town’s Sheriff (Malcolm McDowell) and Deputy (Jamie King) are trying to close in on the killer. Could it be the cranky out of town Claus (Donal Logue)? And what about the out of work lumberjack (Mike O’Brien)? But in a

The Tripper and Contact High

Music festivals have never appealed to me. Especially the ones that involve camping in the dead of summer. The bands that are booked for festivals either don’t register or elicit a chuckle. Being around hundreds to thousands of people for that long sounds like one of the ten Chambers of Hell not mentioned in Big Trouble in Little China. Not to mention chronic swamp ass for days.

Six friends are headed to the Free Love Festival nestled deep in the Red Wood forest. Samantha (Jamie King) is hoping to have a good time and put her psycho right wing ex-boyfriend, and bad acid trip behind her. Samantha is excited to spend the time Not everyone is thrilled about the annual freak show. While the Mayor (Rick Overton) is eager for the revenue to fill the town coffers, Sheriff Buzz Hall (Thomas Jane) smells a rat. And they don’t

‘Silent Night’ DVD Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Jaime King, Malcolm McDowell, Brendan Fehr, Donal Logue, Ellen Wong | Written by Jayson Rothwell | Directed by Steven C. Miller

Following on from his original horror flick The Aggression Scale, which was undoubtedly a hit with a lot of horror fans, director Steven C. Miller tackled a quasi-remake of the controversial 1984 killer-Claus film Silent Night, Deadly Night. Why quasi-remake? Well Silent Night takes the basic theme of that film (and by extension that of the classic Tales From the Crypt story “And All Through the House”), along with one or two of it’s most famous set-pieces and crafts an all-new tale of a killer Santa Claus picking off citizens of a small American town on Christmas Eve – and that’s the plot in a nutshell. No more, no less.

Unlikely to inspire the same controversy as the original film, Silent Night is more of a self-aware parody of the

Exclusive: Jason Mewes Speaks Up for Silent But Deadly

Jason Mewes has been on the scene for a long time. It's hard to believe it was nearly 20 years ago that we first got a look at Jay and Silent Bob in the classic comedy Clerks. Dread Central recently had the chance to talk with this veteran actor about his new horror/comedy Silent But Deadly.

Mewes started by giving us a brief overview on the film. "It's about a dude who was misunderstood because he's not the smartest guy around and he sort of just loses his cool," Mewes said. "Also he loses his best friend. I won't give that away right now, but he loses his best friend, his only friend, and he loses it upon losing his friend and being mistreated and goes on a sort of killing spree. I know that doesn't make it unique, but…I never want to give away too much…when he's going around killing,

6 Recommended Summer "Slashers!"

  • FEARnet
6 Recommended Summer
One of the things I love so much about the horror genre is just how many sub-sections there are to it. I mean, if you were so inclined or just in the mood, you could focus your movie viewing leisure time specifically to the supernatural, or to zombies, or perhaps werewolves & vampires, or monsters (oh my)! But for me, I personally like to get seasonal with my horror movies. And so with summer officially upon us, this is the time of year I break out all of my favorite (and obscure) summer slasher horror! We figured we’d give you 6 recommendations so you could get into the summer slasher spirit as well; some of which are well known, some obscure and some recent ones that just warrant another look in the off chance you missed ‘em upon their initial release. The 'Friday The 13th' films are a given,

Retro Active: The Tripper (2006)

by Nick Schager

[This week’s "Retro Active" pick is inspired by the history-rewriting presidential actioner Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.]

Political satire is nothing new to the horror genre, and on more than a few occasions—for example, William Lustig and Larry Cohen's Uncle Sam, or Joe Dante's Masters of Horror episode "Homecoming"—it's managed to find a suitable equilibrium with nasty carnage. Such a balance, alas, is nowhere to be found in The Tripper, the feature directorial debut of actor David Arquette, about a bunch of twentysomething friends who find themselves coping with all manner of clichéd slasher-madness circumstances, none more deadly than being pursued by an axe-wielding maniac in a Ronald Reagan mask. If you’re immediately wondering whether the Gipper—who's stalking victims at a drugged-out hippie-dippie Free Love music festival at Redwoods National Forest—eventually finds a way to carve "Just Say No" into his victims’ bodies, you're already one step ahead of this leaden effort.

Exclusive: Steven C. Miller and Vincent Guastini Talk Silent Night; New Photos!

With Steven C. Miller’s slasher Santa flick Silent Night having wrapped last month in Winnipeg, we chatted with the director regarding the feature, as we also did with makeup guru Vincent Guastini, both of whom gave us the lowdown on the FX-heavy flick, its slated release date, and more.

“We shot it in seventeen days,” Miller, whose feature The Aggression Scale released earlier this week to video via Anchor Bay, told us of Silent Night, which stars veteran actor Malcolm McDowell, Jaime King (Sin City), Jamie Kennedy (Scream), Brendan Fehr (Final Destination), Lisa Marie (Sleepy Hollow), Donal Logue (Shark Night 3D) and Ellen Wong and serves as a loose remake of Charles E. Sellier, Jr.’s controversial 1984 slasher film Silent Night, Deadly Night. The originator revolved around an unhinged teenager who embarks on an axe murder spree while dressed as Saint Nick.

Talkin' and Trippin' with Devi Snively

Thanks to a string of award-winning short films, Devi Snively has become something of a darling on the film-fest circuit, garnering a reputation as a filmmaker's filmmaker. While this underground renown hasn't translated to aboveground fame for the auteur, this might soon change thanks to the April 10 release of Snively's first feature, Trippin', in a deluxe two-disc set that also collects all of her celebrated shorts. And if that doesn't do it, her innovative upcoming web series Martini Mom & Devil Spawn likely will.

I recently caught up with the garrulous Ms. Snively for a wide-ranging discussion that covered everything from storytelling and Spider-Man to Oklahoma and the exact location of madness.

Congratulations on the Trippin' DVD! You and Team Deviant have been making movies for more than a decade, but this is your first major release. Is it a validating experience?

Patricia Arquette And Kacey Barnfield Cast In The David Arquette Directed Glutton

Actor Abraham Benrubi takes the lead in the David Arquette helmed horror effort 'Glutton'. The new psychological thriller which revolves around a 1200-pound man (played by Benrubi) will be Arquette's second go at directing within the genre following his 2006 serial killer effort 'The Tripper'. Over the weekend the new movie received a couple of interesting cast additions in the form of David's sister Patricia Arquette and rising star Kacey Barnfield ('Jabberwocky'). This won't be the first time David has directed his sister having helmed a few episodes of Patricia's hit series 'Medium' in the past. Kacey (below), star of 'Lake Placid 3' and 'Resident Evil: Afterlife', will be joining the project when the production begins shooting next month in Canada....

David Arquette is a Glutton for 3D Horror?

When most people think of the career of David Arquette, they perceive an often borderline Film/TV career to which he brings a certain nerdy handsome awkwardness, most notably in Eight Legged Freaks and Scream. More usually, however, they will associate him with Courteney Cox- to whom he is still married despite separation last year- and a bizarre infrequent stints as a “pro” wrestler for the WCW, where his ill-judged title reign is often seen as one of the key to that company’s demise.

What fewer will know is that he has a not inconsiderable series of directorial credits to his name and is now about to film his first ever 3D feature film, titled Glutton.

Arquette’s previous directorial credits include several episodes of CSI Miami and Medium, as well as a co-written sole feature film called The Tripper; a slightly trashy horror oddity in which a

Arquette Returning To Directing With Glutton

  • WENN
Troubled actor David Arquette is throwing himself back into work after rehab, signing on to direct a new 3D thriller.

The troubled star has put his health before his career in recent months, following his separation from wife Courteney Cox last year, and checked into rehab in January to conquer an alcohol addiction.

His personal problems forced him to quit as creative director of Hollywood vaudeville show Beacher's Madhouse earlier this year, but Arquette is now ready to return to the spotlight.

And, after he completed promotional commitments for the fourth Scream movie, in which he stars, he'll step behind the camera to direct psychological thriller Glutton.

Producer Stan Spry says, "David is the perfect person to direct Glutton. He brings invaluable assets to the project, including his visual style, creative flair and ability to relate to the cast."

Arquette, who previously directed horror film The Tripper and various TV shows, will also executive produce the project through his company Coquette Productions, reports trade paper Daily Variety.

Work on Glutton is expected to begin in Canada in July.

David Arquette Will Direct Glutton

David Arquette Will Direct Glutton
David Arquette will be sticking with scares once the Scream 4 dust settles, directing the psychological thriller Glutton.There's not much detail in Variety's announcement, other than that the film will be "in the vein of Misery" and be shot, of course, in 3D. Does a film in the vein of Misery need to be in 3D? If someone's tied to a bed and getting their ankles broken with a hammer, we're not sure we want to be that close to the action.Anyone who saw Arquette's previous directorial outing, the scurrilous horror The Tripper - about rock-festival hippies being stalked and slashed by, to all intents and purposes, Ronald Reagan - might suspect that Glutton is likely to have its tongue firmly in its cheek. He's since made a 3D short called The Butler's In Love. Maybe that was an exercise to get his head round the technology.We'll

David Arquette Becomes a Glutton

David Arquette has always been a horror genre guy, from appearing in the Scream franchise and Eight Legged Freaks, to directing his own slasher flick, The Tripper. With that in mind it's not surprising to hear that Arquette has signed on to even more genre fare.

No plot crunch is available as of yet, but Kenny Yakkel (Dead Air) wrote the script, which is described as being in the vein of Misery. Stan Spry and Cameron Larson are producing along with R. Scott Reid, Steve Ecclesine and Lawreen Yakkel, while Arquette will exec produce through his Coquette Prods. banner.

Glutton is scheduled to begin production in Canada this July. We'll bring you more as we have it.
