Heather’s Favorites of 2019

  • DailyDead
2019 was truly a gift for horror fans, as we were inundated with tons of amazing content, both on the big and on the small screen as well. In fact, it was hard to keep up with everything, which is why I’m bummed I still haven’t had a chance to catch up with several films that most likely would have ended up on this list. That being said, after taking in more than 300 movies (both horror and non-genre included) and several television series to boot, here’s my rundown of my favorite genre entertainment from 2019:

Please keep in mind that I only include films that have received an official release during 2019, so films like Vfw, First Love, Something Else/After Midnight, Come to Daddy, The Vast of Night, and Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street will most likely have to hang in there until next year.

Enjoy!

The Top 20 Horror Movies Of 2019: Ready Or Not…Here They Come (Part II)

It’s that time again. Another year has come to an end and while 2019 was an odd one for horror as far as mainstream titles go, with many household baddies ending up leaving less of a mark than so many awesome indies (in my opinion), there was still a lot to like over the last twelve months.

Indeed, 2019 was a reminder of the tremendous diversity found in the many horror subgenres that brought us cornucopia of terror. Take your pick, choose your fate and dive right in with us. And in case you missed our first 10 choices for top horror movies of 2019, you can check them out here.

At sea, no one can hear you slurp the blood of seagulls as a means of sustenance. I think that’s how the saying goes? Rob Grant’s Harpoon is a claws-spiked survival nightmare on water, featuring three friends with deeper

Man vs Predator – Must-see creature features

Even in the early days of cinema, viewers paid to see otherworldly beings from their favourite gothic novels take shape on the big screen. With their ability to thrill, exhilarate and freak us out in any shape or form, larger-than-life characters like Dracula and Frankenstein have deservedly created their own film genre: the ‘monster movie’ or ‘creature feature’, centred on a group of people attempting to escape the clutches of these fearsome beasts. To celebrate the release of Crawl on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download (available from 16th December), join us for a countdown of must-see creature features that paved the way for this latest addition to a very special canon.

Jaws (1975)

Where better to start than the film that pretty much defined the modern blockbuster? Steven Spielberg’s masterpiece has it all: a killer score from John Williams, superb animatronics that put a lot of modern CGI to shame,

Eastern Europe Fields Strong Oscar Entries

  • Variety
Eastern Europe Fields Strong Oscar Entries
Western Europe traditionally gets the lion’s share of attention in the international film category, with France and Italy still leading the record books in terms of nominations and wins. But a number of the most exciting contenders among this year’s submissions hail from a little further east: in a bumper year for cinema from Central and Eastern Europe, a few titles stand out.

Language has been a subject of significant controversy in this year’s Oscar race. Yet, the Academy has moved the needle on this front in recent years: not so long ago, films that weren’t in an official language of the submitting country were ineligible. That would have ruled out this year’s submission from the Czech Republic, “The Painted Bird.” Aiming to be the first Czech film to score a nomination since 2003’s “Zelary,” Václav Marhoul’s film is a linguistic anomaly in all

Cinematic Gratitude v. 2019

During a year in which the world finds itself increasingly in the throes of totalitarianism and corruption, when institutions, traditions and good old common sense seems to be crumbling before our very eyes, when the world itself appears to be catching fire, a spirit of thanksgiving may be one that is hard to come by. But there are reasons to give thanks even in light of those realities, ones even directly to those realities, and I encourage you to seek out those reasons, be as grateful as is warranted, and find ways to express that gratitude. In other words, don’t let the bastards get you down.

In the world of the movies, there was the usual degree of lousy movies, some franchise-related, of course, but some that were pretty shitty of their own accord. And at the same time, there were lots of reasons to justify gratitude. Here are

The venerable sales company changed its strategy before Berlin.

Exclusive Interview: Director Alexandre Aja Talks The Challenges Of Making Crawl

Alexandre Aja’s Crawl was perhaps the biggest surprise horror hit of the summer. The aquatic scream fest, which followed a young woman (Kaya Scodelario) navigating through a Florida hurricane to rescue her father (Barry Pepper) from ferocious alligators, was a critical and commercial success. With a $13.5 million budget, Crawl went on to earn nearly $90 million around the world, as well as a more-than-healthy 82% on Rotten Tomatoes (here’s our glowing review).

We Got This Covered recently had the opportunity to speak with Mr. Aja about the aesthetics of his latest film, as well as the mechanics behind the performances of his two lead actors.

Interview: Director Alexandre Aja Discusses Crawl, Upcoming Interactive Haunted House Movie, and Adaptation of Junji Ito’s Tomie

  • DailyDead
Nearly one decade after making viewers afraid to go in the water (without risking the loss of an appendage) in Piranha 3D, Alexandre Aja dove back into underwater horror this past summer with Crawl, a claustrophobic thriller that pits college swimmer Haley (Kaya Scodelario) and her estranged father (Barry Pepper) against ravenous alligators amid the chaos of a Category 5 hurricane.

Crawl is undoubtedly one of my favorite moviegoing experiences of 2019, and with the film out now on Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD from Paramount Home Entertainment, Daily Dead had the pleasure of speaking with Aja once again about the ambitious underwater filming for Crawl (which is explored in-depth in the Blu-ray's special features), the serendipity of getting to work with Sam Raimi, and how this water-centric filming experience compared to making Piranha 3D. With plenty of projects on his horizon, we also talked with Aja about his upcoming interactive haunted house

Crawl Director Alexandre Aja Talks Crafting His Killer Alligator Horror Flick [Exclusive]

Crawl Director Alexandre Aja Talks Crafting His Killer Alligator Horror Flick [Exclusive]
Alexandre Aja has quietly asserted himself as a master of gory horror over the past decade and a half or so with movies like High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes and Piranha 3D. With his latest effort, Crawl, Aja stepped into the world of (relatively) high-budget creature features, and it worked out quite well, based on the general consensus. In a summer that was filled with many disappointing sequels and reboots, this alligator-infested, bloody ride proved to be a huge bright spot.

Crawl centers on a massive hurricane that hits Florida, leading Haley (Kaya Scodelario) to ignore evacuation orders and search for her missing father, Dave (Barry Pepper). Upon finding him in their family home, she discovers her father is gravely injured, as a pack of large alligators has found their way inside. To make matters worse, the two of them become trapped by the rapidly rising floodwaters, with little hope of rescue.

Stellan Skarsgård and Harvey Keitel Holocaust Film ‘The Painted Bird’ Acquired by IFC Films

  • The Wrap
IFC Films has acquired the U.S. rights to “The Painted Bird,” a Holocaust drama starring Stellan Skarsgård, Harvey Keitel and Udo Kier that played at Venice and Toronto earlier this year, the distributor announced Tuesday.

The Painted Bird” is directed, written, and produced by Václav Marhoul and is based on the novel by Jerzy Kosinski. The foreign language drama will be the official Oscar submission from the Czech Republic. IFC Films is planning a theatrical release for 2020.

The film was praised on the festival circuit for its bleak, unsparing look at Holocaust atrocities and evil, but the nearly three-hour saga, all in black and white on 35mm film, also prompted walkouts among moviegoers and split some critics.
