    Watch: Test Footage From John Carpenter's 'Halloween' Using Steadicam Competitor Panaglide

    Though many know of the great impact that the Steadicam had on the filmmaking world at large, few are aware of its competitor, the Panaglide. Though many use the two names interchangeably now, both were two different systems that were part of a nasty battle but what’s important now are the images th...

    TV Ratings: Winners ("The Voice," ABC Fridays) and Losers (The CMAs, Halloween Night)

    The 2012-13 television season just finished up week six, with NBC and CBS stealing back the 18-49 and overall viewers crowns after Fox's World Series-propelled wins in both last week. But ABC -- third in both regards -- offered up two of the most interesting ratings stories last week, both good ...

    John Carpenter's 'Halloween' Returning To Theaters Just In Time For Halloween

    Sequelized, remade and rebooted over the years, it speaks to the power of John Carpenter's 1978 horror classic "Halloween" that it still tops all of its subsequent iterations. At thirty-four years old, the film still remains a thrill, but if you haven't seen it or want a rare chanc...

    Rob Zombie on Going for Broke With 'Lords of Salem' and Why Making a Third 'Halloween' Would Be "Masochistic"

    A Few Great Pumpkins VI—Seventh Night: Fear(s) of the Dark

    It’s commonplace to bemoan the sad reality that animation has been so long considered a children's medium. The limitless possibilities for expression and beauty and terror and surreality offered by the form make it frustrating that it has been co-opted by the gatekeepers of kids’ entertainment. Ever...

    A Few Great Pumpkins VI—Sixth Night: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    Because Fredric March won the best actor Oscar for his double-role as the twin protagonists in the 1931 Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, the film is primarily remembered for his performance. Yet to ignore the astonishing filmmaking on display by the great Rouben Mamoulian is to miss one of the most elegant, technically audacious Hollywood horror films of all time, not to mention one of the most truly dangerous. This is definitely pre-Code stuff: a flash of nudity, sure (from madman's prey Miriam Hopkins, in bed), but also a surprising rawness in its violence and a vivid anger permeating its every shock. It feels particularly fresh today in the way it...
