    He dated and had sex with a teenager and almost certainly committed statutory rape multiple times, he preyed on a young fan, who was 13 when they started dating, he was 33 at the time

    Also that cover implies a blood soaked goretastic vapid wacky comedy and Tammy and the T-Rex delievers only on the vapidity

    The "Gore" edition just hit Shudder. I haven't watched it but it apparently earns it's name.

    Very fun, I recommend

    The ones that had totally different casts and increasingly small budgets?

    There is something wonderful about the third film having a kickstarter to secure some funding to get made. Just, perfect.

    Just as much as that there were enough suckers to put in almost half a mil for the sorry thing.

    Stuart Gordon, director of Re-Animator, has died.

    Never been a better time to watch that classic movie. And From Beyond, too! And while we're at it, Dagon, Castle Freak and ROBOT JOX.

    @Knob have you heard of re-animator?

    Jokes aside, I love Stuart Gordon. I loved Robot Jox, I loved Dagon, I loved them all.

    RIP.

    Wow I had no idea Dagon and King of the Ants were both Stuart Gordon. He was even more influential on teen me than I realized!

    Wish I had a working VCR right now so I could pop Dagon in.

    ...and King of the Ants, holy shit. I haven't thought about that movie in years.

    Stuart Gordon also co-wrote and co-created Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, but had to drop out from directing it because working for Disney gave him dangerously high blood pressure.

    the only thing I know about Reanimator is that Kevin Spacey asks the neighbor kid about it as an excuse to buy weed from him in American Beauty, so this makes sense to me

    I cannot praise Re-Animator enough.

    I've almost certainly told this story here before, but Re-Animator is what got me into watching horror movies. As a kid I was convinced that I did not like horror as a genre, especially horror in movie form. I don't entirely know where I got this idea, because I grew up reading Edgar Allen Poe and watching The X-Files and throwing slumber parties that everyone else had to go home from because the ghost stories were too scary, but it was firmly entrenched by the time I was a teenager.

    But when I was fifteen, I started reading HP Lovecraft. I can't be entirely certain why I decided to do this, but I believe it's because I was trying to branch out from Dungeons and Dragons and discovered the Call of Cthulhu game. I read through a flimsy collection of some of his less known stories and I was instantly in love with it. And one of the stories I specifically liked was Herbert West: Re-Animator.

    Maybe a year after that my mom started getting Netflix (still in its nascent mail-based form), and I could have one of the three DVDs she got at a time. One of the movies I rented this way was Re-Animator, which I watched by myself. I had read or been told that it was more of a like, good-bad horror movie, and I was confident that it would be fine. It was, and I loved it, and from there I started watching more and more horror movies, eager to catch up on the things that I'd missed by being obstinately disinterested for the past several years.

    The other thing I will say is that when I first fell in love with Re-Animator, I fell in love with it as a shitty adaptation of a story I liked, campy and bad but fun to laugh at. As I grew older, I began presenting it to friends as more of a life, "Well, it's not quite the original story, and it has some camp to it, but it's still kind of good." And now I've come one hundred percent around on it - everything I love about the movie is intentional, it's honestly a better and more concise version of the story than the written form is, and Stuart Gordon (as well as Brian Yuzna, Jeffrey Combs, Barbara Crampton, etc) deserves a massive amount of credit for it. Yeah, it's still going to be funny and schlocky B-horror, but it's that at its absolute best.

    I feel like actually seeing any of the re-animator movies would diminish my appreciation for the music video from one of the sequels and I'm not sure I can allow that.

    I'm not sure something can be increasingly small!

    Sure it can!

    According to Wikipedia, the second film had half the budget of the first film, and the third film had half the budget of the second film.

    my mom thought Re-animator was "dumb"

    which like, yeah a little.

    she did applaud the absolutely gruesome special effects and we had to pause to laugh during the scene when Jeffrey Combs gets attacked by the cat.

    Less "weird" and more "upsetting and stressful." Some very good, old friends have a wedding scheduled for DC in May. Current status uncertain.

    One of my wife's coworkers had been planning her wedding in Italy, for the beginning of this past March, for 2 years. That obviously didn't happen. A little heartbreaking.

    but right now I wanna talk about School of Rock, a basically perfect movie that only gets better now that I'm an adult and recognize how goddamn weird it is that indie darlings Richard Linklater and Mike White teamed up for a movie and it was a huge crowdpleasing family film

    Nick Pinkerton, one of the best writers on film today, just wrote about Deadbeat At Dawn, the kind of movie I think a lot of people here will (or already do) like, but most wouldn't take seriously. Pinkerton approaches it from a regional outsider art standpoint, in the tradition of George A. Romero or countless music scenes. It's absolutely fascinating and so refreshing to see a writer of this skill and knowledge not dismiss or condescend (which is a worse crime) to this kind of filmmaking.

    He just started a substack where he'll be posting long-form writing that couldn't really be published anywhere else.

    Here's a couple quotes:
    Among other things, with the absence of money comes a palpable sense of actual danger—budget can make a lot of things possible in a movie, but it can’t give you that, and very often the sense of a monetary safety net softens the impact of the finished product. When you can feel a gigantic crew sweating and fretting and breathing over every inch of a movie, it’s difficult to convince yourself that anything can really go awry, it’s hard to suspend disbelief to the point that you forget that help—the best help that money can buy—is always right around the corner. By contrast, when Jim Van Bebber is hanging off a speeding car at the end of Deadbeat at Dawn, that’s Jim Van Bebber hanging off of a speeding car—something that no insurance agency is going to give a star clearance to do on a professional shoot, something that only happens if you have no insurance agency, no stars, and no sense of professionalism, that most overrated of qualities.
    What I’m ultimately praising in Deadbeat at Dawn—or Bee Thousand, or Night of the Living Dead, or the music of Zapp & Roger, or Blood Feast, for that matter—is their idiosyncrasy, the degree to which they provide relief from a pop culture landscape in which everything does look the same or sound the same or move the same. And I think no small part of that same-iness is, as Romero suggests, a result of centralization, of the fact that American movies come from people who live in one or two cities, who read the same screenwriting guides and have the same ideas about things, and who rarely bother to expend much effort depicting the city that they live in on film, much less bothering themselves with any other place.

    I can't stress enough how good this piece is. It's long, digging into a ton of history, but I figure a lot of us have some time right now. Check it out.
