Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Good news, everyone. The horror wizard John Carpenter is heading back to the genre with a new series for the SyFy network called Tales For A Halloween Night. Carpenter will executive produce the series and hopefully direct and write some of the episodes. The series is based off of Carpenter’s own horror anthology in graphic novel form. The search for writers, directors, and actors are currently in full force.

Hi, Bryan Here….

I’ve already noticed as of a couple of weeks ago that stores have already set up shop for Halloween.  I’m getting psyched already for this year’s Halloween celebrations.  And of course, what is Halloween without John Carpenter’s ‘Halloween’?  I just love this film, and am excited that this horror classic is returning to the theater.  The film will open in theaters on October 25th and run through October 31st.  Participating theaters will be listed beginning Friday, Sept 14, and new locations will be added continuously through Sept 28. Be sure to check back with ScreenVision for newly added theaters.  Scroll down for our current list and please check back for updates!  You can click the links below to purchase tickets as well.

Hi, Bryan Here….

I’m so excited for this release.  Finally, the ultimate edition blu-ray for John Carpenter’s ‘The Live’ starring Rowdy Roddy Piper will be released November 6th, 2012.  I was hoping they’d get this out before Halloween, but at least they are getting it out before the holiday season.  Tons of AWESOME extras come with this release.  I can wait.  No specs have been announced yet, but I will update everyone once those become available. That cover art is too cool.

Vice Squad – Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 25th, 2019

So a pimp, a prostitute, and a police detective walk into a bar. It sounds like the start of a bad joke or what could be a really good time with names like Princess and Ramrod, but in the case of 1982’s action film Vice Squad, that’s not always the case. In fact, this is a super sexualized crime thriller with some hardcore violence and one rough bad guy. This movie is the culmination of the late 70s and early 80s that brought together a ton of top-tier talent, which is funny because this movie is so over-the-top violent, that you can’t believe it was ever made and released. Gary Sherman directed this pic, who previously just came off Dead and Buried and went onto make Poltergeist III. He was joined by producing partner Robert Rehme (former president of Avco Pictures who helped make a ton of John Carpenter movies, including The Fog and Escape From New York). Also collaborating with this duo was cinematographer John Alcott, who had previously worked on four of Stanley Kubrick’s best films, including 2001: A Spacy Oddessy, Barry Lyndon, The Shining, and A Clockwork Orange. Rounding out this stellar crew of talent is composer Joe Renzetti (Child’s Play). While the story may be your standard grindhouse B-movie affair, the visual style, camera angles, and score are out of this world.

‘Someone’s Watching Me!’ Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 8th, 2018

Not to be confused with Michael Jackson’s song (Rockwell) ‘Somebody’s Watching Me‘, this 1978 made-for-television film called ‘Someone’s Watching Me!‘ was directed by the iconic John Carpenter (Halloween), which interestingly enough, came out a couple of weeks after ‘Halloween‘ was released in theaters. The film stars Lauren Hutton as a young woman who moves from NYC to LA in order to become a TV producer/director. She seems to be enjoying life out there, however, she has a stalker who spies on her from the building across from her with a telescope. This stalker sends her awful messages, harasses her, and even sends her strange gifts in the mail.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Memoirs of an Invisible Man’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 3rd, 2018

John Carpenter is mostly known as a maestro of horror with movies like ‘Halloween‘, ‘They Live‘, ‘Escape From New York‘, and ‘Big Trouble In Little China‘ under his belt. In 1992, a mostly forgotten movie he made is ‘Memoirs of an Invisible Man‘, which starred Chevy Chase, Daryl Hannah, Sam Neill, Michael McKean, and Stephen “Ned Ryerson” Tobolowsky. Carpenter and Warner Bros. Studios didn’t exactly get along, because they wouldn’t let Carpenter have total creative control here, so the film is safe and family friendly, unlike the rest of his films. In fact, Ivan Reitman of ‘Ghostbusters‘ was set to make this movie, but it never got off the ground and Carpenter was offered the role.

4K UHD Review: ‘Halloween’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 2nd, 2018

John Carpenter’s original ‘Halloween‘ film is iconic, classic, amazing, scary, and still holds up to this day. It paved the way for modern horror movies and slashers and spawned numerous sequels. This film has been released dozens of times over the years on various formats, but this is the first time in 4K UHD with Dolby Vision, which is an upgrade, to say the least. If you’re unfamiliar with the story of the movie, this is a slow burn of a masked killer with supernatural abilities and demonic forces who stalks and kills his victims, most of them high-school students. He’s the one in the dark corners, behind walls, and hidden in the bushes waiting to pounce and brutally kill you.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #14!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 18th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Since Ed Sheeran made a very quick cameo in this first episode of Season 7 of HBO’s Game of Thrones, a good friend of mine – Suzahhhnn, mentioned that the next Favorite Movie Scene of the Day should be one where a musician made a fun cameo in a movie. I thought it was a great idea and here we are. However, what movie to do, I thought. The obvious one would be Blues Brothers, but that will be saved for another time. As I was thinking and going through my movie collection, it almost instantly came to me, like a lightning bolt.

Bring in the Horror Holiday Cheer with Better Watch Out!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 14th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

I’m a sucker for holiday horror movies. They are so much fun and full of blood and holiday cheer. There’s a new film called ‘Better Watch Out‘ that will be released in theaters and on VOD on October 6th, which is just in time for Halloween. This very short teaser trailer is quite funny, which shows a couple of women singing Christmas carols, where a third woman is running from an unidentified attacker, where she quickly gets chopped up. I’m all in.

Soundtracks we want to see released on Vinyl!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 15th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

preview

I just love soundtracks to movies. I always have and I believe I always will. There is something about a score to a film that just perks me up in all the right ways and inspires my creative side, whether it be to write a screenplay or go back an watch that old film I love. Music is an integral part to films and is considered to be the mojo of every movie. I’m sure we’ve all seen that odd YouTube video of the final scene in Star Wars: A New Hope, where Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Chewbacca walk down a crowded arena to receive their medals to zero music. It’s super weird and awkward with no music, but just random sound effects of footsteps and a rare cough, laugh, and Chewie’s roar. John Williams did such a great job, as he always does with Star Wars music, but that final scene of music really puts your emotions on full blast. It’s all from the soundtrack too.

Blu-ray Review: GET OUT!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 25th, 2017

THE FILM

When you say the name Jordan Peele, you would most likely think of the brilliant comedic stylings of Key and Peele or Peele’s time on MadTV. You might even crack a big smile, thinking of Peele’s recent film Keanu. But I’m willing to bet you wouldn’t think of the words “horror maestro” when you see Jordan Peele’s name come across the screen. And that’s exactly what Peele can add to his resume résumé with his new movie Get Out, which he wrote and directed for the genre mogul Blumhouse.
