If Movieline ran a feature to accompany Bad Movies We Love called Bad Trailers We Love, the gory sales preview for Dario Argento's monsterpiece Dracula 3D would be spotlighted this week. It features everything that is awful about bad horror movies -- but in such a straightforward way that you can't help but watch the trailer in knee-slapping awe. Beware: One gratuitous sponge bath, buckets of movie blood and spoilers galore await you.
Ten years ago, after completing his 20th film in 27 years, filmmaking legend John Carpenter took a sabbatical from filmmaking. "I was tired," he explained to Movieline, pointing to a decades-long career spent filming one project after the next, including genre classics like Halloween, The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, and They Live. "I had given up my personal life and given up my health -- given up a lot of things, because of my love of movies, and I'd stopped loving cinema."
Fans of Dario Argento's cult 1977 thriller Suspiria who are a bit wary of the upcoming Natalie Portman-starring remake, take note: Writer-director David Gordon Green would like to put your minds at ease. Catching up with Movieline while discussing his new stoner comedy Your Highness, the versatile filmmaker emphasized a commitment to faithfulness and shared plans to recreate specific scenes and dialogue from the original. Most exciting of all? He's got the rights to the original Suspiria score by prog-rock band Goblin -- and he intends to use it.
