Horror Scenes That I Love: The Finale of Dellamorte Dellamore


Today’s horror scene that I love comes from the 1994 Italian film, Dellamorte Dellamore.

Viewed out of context from the rest of the film, this is not an easy scene to explain.  My suggestion is enjoy it for the beauty of the images and Rupert Everett’s mournful performance.  And, if you haven’t seen it, watch Dellamorte Dellamore as soon as possible.

Horror Scenes That I Love: The Chase Sequence from Jean Rollin’s La Vampire Nue


Today’s horror scene that I love comes from 1970’s La Vampire Nue.  This film was directed by the brilliant French surrealist, Jean Rollin.

What is this scene about?  To be honest, what it’s about is less important than how it looks and how it makes you feel.  As a director, Jean Rollin specialized in bringing dreams and nightmare to cinematic life.  (That said, as surreal as this scene may be, it’s actually one of the more straight forward moments to be found in Rollin’s filmography.)

Coogler, Jordan, and Stallone return with Creed!


The first trailer for Creed was released earlier today!  Now, I have to admit that I’m not a huge fan of boxing.  Nor did I exactly love Rocky when I watched it on TCM.   (That said, I’ve always secretly felt that I was a bit too glibly dismissive of it in my review.)

But you know what film I did really admire?  Fruitvale Station.  Ryan Coogler’s directorial debut was a powerful and disturbing look at race relations in America.  It had its flaws but overall, Coogler crafted one of the best films of the decade.  Equally impressive was the film’s star, Michael B. Jordan.

So for me, my interesting has been piqued because Creed is another chapter in the careers of both Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan and I can not wait to see where they go.

However, I think a lot more people will want to see the film because it is another chapter in the story of Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky.  So, before seeing Creed, be sure to check out our own Jedadiah Leland’s look back at the history of the Rocky franchise!
