(Alternate Mix) Funkadelic-Maggot Brain (1971)

Saturday, October 24, 2009


The efficient and skeptical freelance insurance investigator John Trent is hired by the publisher Jackson Harglow to find where the famous writer Sutter Cane might be. After writing a series of best-sellers in the horror genre, affecting the reason and causing disorientation, memory loss, and paranoia in readers, Sutter has simply vanished near the release of his new novel, "Horror in Hobb's End." There is mass hysteria of his anxious fans waiting for the new release, and John believes that his disappearance is a marketing strategy. John follows his instincts and travels with Cane's editor, Linda Styles, to New Hampshire, seeking for the apparently fictional town of Hobb's End. While driving along in the night, Linda reaches Hobb's End, and John discloses that Sutter Cane has unleashed a powerful evil force in the black church of the mysterious town, and his twisted imagination is changing the reality and perception of those who read his novels.

# The small town is named "Hobb's End", an in-joke reference to the subway station where the alien ship is excavated in the movie Quatermass and the Pit (1967).

# After Sutter Cane says "Did I ever tell you my favorite color is blue?" It is realized that throughout the entire movie, whenever an actor has a close up, their eyes are blue, proving Sutter Cane's power.

# John Trent occupies cell number 9 at the asylum, and rents room number 9 at the Pickman Inn in Hobb's End.

# Contains many references to H.P. Lovecraft's stories, for example is the Name of the hotel and hotel owner "Pickman", a reference to the short story "Pickman's Model".

# The Sutter Cane character is clearly based on John Carpenter's friend Stephen King, even referencing King's New England roots, with Hobb's Corner filling in for King's Castle Rock. Carpenter directed a film version of King's Christine (1983). Additionally Michael De Luca had previously written the screenplay for the King adaptation The Lawnmower Man (1987). However, the characters say that Sutter Cane is even more popular than Stephen King.

# This is the third film in what John Carpenter has called his Apocalypse Trilogy, the first being The Thing (1982) and the second being Prince of Darkness (1987).

# The building used as the mental institution at the beginning of the film is actually a water filtration plant in the Beaches area of Toronto. It has been the scene of other movies, including the island fortress in Undercover Brother (2002). Filming can no longer take place inside this building following the terrorist attacks on the USA of 11 September 2001.

# The silly monster movie that Trent sees on the television was a real movie. The scene was from Phil Tucker's Robot Monster (1953).

# The scene towards the end of the film that featured dozens of monsters coming from the other side where a combination of men in suits, animatronics and a full-size "Wall" of creatures. It took over 30 people to operate the monsters.

# The Mrs. Pickman creature was shot as a miniature. Originally it was a man in a suit prosthetic, but John Carpenter didn't find it convincing enough.

# When Jürgen Prochnow lets the monsters from the other side into our world, originally in the script the entire town was sucked into the other side. When this proved to be too costly, an effects artist over at Industrial Light and Magic recommended that instead he "tears" himself apart like paper.

# The R.C. Harris water filtration plant was also used for the exterior shots of the asylum.

# Sam Neill, who was originally a director himself, suggested to director John Carpenter that he shoot some of the scenes in the hotel from above.

# The car keys that Julie Carmen swallows when Sam Neill is trying to escape from town were made out of pasta.

# Robot Monster (1953), which Sam Neill is watching at the end of the movie, is one of director John Carpenter's favorite monster movies as a kid.

# During the scene where a hand breaks through the glass of Sam Neill's cell, a piece of fake glass cut his neck.

# The effect of Julie Carmen spinning her head around was done by having a contortionist stunt-double wear an up-side down prosthetic mask of Carmen's face. Since the stunt double couldn't see, the filmmaker had to guide her on where to go by sound.

# Hobb is an old word which was used to refer to the devil

# The six Sutter Cane novels which Trent uses to track down the town of Hobb's End are the following: "The Hobb's End Horror", "The Feeding", "The Whisperer in the Dark", "Something in the Cellar", "The Breathing Tunnel" and "In the Mouth of Madness".

# References to the "Old Ones" by Sutter Cane, along with certain representations of monsters printed on his books and latter brought to life, are allusions to The Cthulhu Mythos - a series of stories by H.P. Lovecraft and continued by other writers into modern times. In this sense, one could consider "In the Mouth of Madness" John Carpenter's own contribution to The Cthulhu Mythos.

John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness 1987
When the guardian priest of an abandoned church in Los Angeles dies, Father Loomis finds a diary and a key, opens the door of the basement and finds a cylinder with a gruesome green fluid. The priest contacts Professor Howard Birack in the local university and he invites a team of students to research the findings and translate manuscripts. Their discovery leads to the fact that the tube contains the Devil's son, and a prophecy that "when the sleeper awakens the son will release the father." The tube is locked from the inside and the sleeper is beginning to stir.


# Screenwriter 'Carpenter, John' is credited as "Martin Quatermass". The pseudonym is a homage to Professor Bernard Quatermass, the lead character of "The Quatermass Experiment" (1953) and several subsequent TV series and film versions. In the original press notes he was described as 'the brother of Professor Bernard Quatermass, head of the British rocket programme.' In a further nod to Carpenter's influences, the character Wyndham is named after science-fiction author John Wyndham and Anne Howard's character is named after the star of The Wasp Woman (1959), Susan Cabot.

# Donald Pleasence's character, Father Loomis, is named after the character he played in the Halloween movies.

# 'Jameson Parker', who plays Brian, was sporting an old leg injury he picked up while making TV series "Simon & Simon" (1981), and would sometimes need to rest in his trailer because of the pain.

# When actor Peter Jason, who plays Dr. Leahy, introduces himself to Dr. Birack ('Victor Wong') for the first time, he wasn't expecting Wong to walk away in the middle of the scene. Jason's subsequent confused appearance and awkwardness is natural and unscripted.

# Rock singer Alice Cooper is among the hordes of homeless people that surround the church during the film.

# This is the second film in what John Carpenter calls his Apocalypse Trilogy. The others are The Thing (1982) and In the Mouth of Madness (1994).

# Peter Jason hurt his shoulder in the scene where he and Jameson Parker try to break the front doors of the church down to escape. He claims that the pain still flares up to this day.

# The movie was shot in just over 30 days.

# The scene where Wyndham (Robert Grasmere) is stabbed by the bag-lady at the back of the church is inspired by a smiliar stabbing scene in the Terence Fisher movie Curse of the Werewolf.

# Alice Cooper used the bike impalement trick in his stage shows prior to this movie. The bike he uses was his own personal prop.

# In the scene where Brain and Catherine are in bed in the morning, Brian says to her, "Who was he, the one that gave you such a high opinion of men?" This is a fairly well known quote (among others) from To Have and Have Not (1944), only the sexes are reversed here. The original has Lauren Bacall saying, "Who was the girl, Steve?" To which Humphrey Bogart replies, "Who was what girl?" And she responds, "The one who left you with such a high opinion of women."

# The audio of the "broadcasts" that Brian receives in his dreams was sampled by Marilyn Manson in the song "Down In The Park".

# Factual errors: (At 12:25) The Priest (Donald Pleasence) tells Dr. Birack (Victor Wong) that the Catholic Church containing the demonic fluid, located in Los Angeles, was built in the 1500s by Spanish missionaries. The Spanish did not colonize California with missions until 1769, with the founding of San Diego by the explorer-missionary Fra Junipero Serra. The mission where filming took place, Mission San Fernando Rey de España, was not founded until 1797.

Classic Horror

King Kong Escapes
An evil genius named Dr. Who has created a robotic version of King Kong named Mechani-Kong in order to dig for a highly radioactive element called "Element X", but the power of it shuts the robot down. Meanwhile, the crew of a submarine investigate the legend of King Kong on Mondo Island and Susan Wattson is attacked by Gorosaurus. However Kong comes to her rescue and kills it by breaking their jaws, before also saving the crew from a giant sea snake. Later, Dr. Who kidnaps the real Kong along with the submarine crew and hypnotize him to dig for Element X. He soon snaps out of it, escapes and swims off to Tokyo. The submarine crew also escape and Kong picks up Wattson, who he carries to the top of the Tokyo Tower where he fights Mechani-Kong.

I Was a Teenage Werewolf
A troubled teenager seeks help through hypnotherapy, but his evil doctor uses him for regression experiments that transform him into a rampaging werewolf

I Was a Teenage Werewolf Trivia
# American International Pictures released this on a double bill with Invasion of the Saucer Men (1957) with the tag line "We DARE You To See The Most Amazing Pictures of Our Time!"

# One of the most successful films ever released by American Internation Pictures.

# This was the film that came up with the popular title motif "I Was A *incert noun here*." Numerous films, songs, and books have paid homage to this film through their titles alone.

# American Internation Pictures rushed out a number of films similar to this in hopes of capitalizing on the success of I Was A Teenage Werewolf. Among them - I Was a Teenage Frankenstein (1957), How to Make a Monster (1958), and Blood of Dracula (1957).

# Guy Williams (Officer Stanley) would reunite with Michael Landon on several episodes of "Bonanza" (1959) as his cousin Will.

# Michael Landon later satirized his role in this film on his TV show, "Highway to Heaven" (1984). In the 1987 Halloween episode, "I Was A Middle Aged Werewolf," written and directed by Landon, the angel Jonathan Smith turns himself into a werewolf to scare off some bullies. Smith and his friend, Mark Gordon (Victor French) watch the movie I Was a Teenage Werewolf (1957) on TV. Watching the werewolf, Mark tells Jonathan, "You know, this guy in the movie reminds me a lot of you. I mean, when he's a regular guy, not when he's got fuzz all over his face."

The Curse of Frankenstein
Baron Victor Frankenstein, in prison for murder and trying to evade the guillotine, tells a priest how he and his mentor, Paul Krempe, had performed many scientific experiments, eventually leading to the resurrection of a dead body. The baron's obsession and the monster's homicidal nature cause the deaths of several of those around them. Finally the Baron is confronted by an enraged monster about to throw Victor's fiancée Elizabeth, from the castle parapet

The Curse of Frankenstein Trivia
# For many years this held the distinction of being the most profitable film to be produced in England by a British studio.

# The first Frankenstein movie to be filmed in color

# The idea originated with Milton Subotsky, who went on to co-found Amicus Films, Hammer's main rival during the 1960s and early 1970s. The script was revised several times to avoid repeating any elements from the Universal Frankenstein series. As part of this effort, new monster make-up had to be devised especially for this film.

# Christopher Lee's monster make-up was almost literally done at the "last minute". After previous attempts to design a monster make-up using a cast of Lee's head had failed, make-up artist Philip Leakey made the final design the day before shooting began, directly onto Lee's face, using primarily cotton and other household materials. Since he didn't use any latex or molds, the make-up had to be recreated from scratch every day.

# The original concept for this film was a black-and-white feature with Boris Karloff as Baron Frankenstein. Universal threatened a lawsuit if Hammer copied any elements from the classic Universal version. Hammer had Jimmy Sangster completely redo the script and had Jack Asher shoot it in Eastmancolour.

# This is not the first time Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee starred together. Lee had a small role in Laurence Olivier's Hamlet (1948), in which Cushing played Osric. The two had also appeared in Moulin Rouge (1952), though they shared no scenes.

# Bernard Bresslaw was considered for the role of the Creature, on account of his height.

# Patrick Troughton appeared in a brief role as a mortuary attendant. Although his name is credited on some early publicity material his scenes were cut from the finished film.

# Although they had both previously appeared in Hamlet (1948) and Moulin Rouge (1952), Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing met on the set of this film for the first time. They would pass the time between shots by exchanging Looney Tunes phrases, and quickly developed a fast friendship, which lasted until Cushing's death in 1994.

Update Movies were Deleted off youtube.com

On March 11 2008, the government sealed off an apartment complex in Los Angeles. The residents were never seen again. No details. No witnesses. No evidence. Until now.

# Was not screened for US critics.

# Unusually for a Hollywood production, this film does not feature a musical score.

# Remake of the Spanish movie [Rec] (2007).

# In October 2008 Knott's Berry Farm theme park in Buena Park, California, had a Quarantine-themed walk-through "maze" for the park's 36th annual Knott's Scary Farm Halloween Haunt. It was their third movie-themed Halloween Haunt maze, after Beowulf (2007) and The Grudge 2 (2006).

* Incorrectly regarded as goofs: Power to the building has been cut, yet the elevator still works. One character briefly mentioned that the building has a back-up generator, most likely to assist evacuation during emergencies. A pre-programmed back-up system explains why the elevator stops at each floor, and why the doors take so long to close.

* Revealing mistakes: Near the end, when Angela and Scott get into the room with lab equipment and newspaper articles on the walls, one article with the headline "Doomsday Cult Suspected in Weapons Lab Break In" is a real article. The real headline is "Dead by 34: How AIDS and Starvation Condemn Zimbabwe's Women to An Early Grave" by Daniel Howden, written Nov 17, 2006.

* Audio/visual unsynchronized: When the bio-suited CDC doctors enter the building, you hear the sounds of a self-contained breathing apparatus. However, the doctors are wearing standard gas masks with NBC filters, which are almost silent and don't use an external air supply.

* Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): In the United States, it is illegal for a law enforcement official to order someone not to film or photograph something.

Update Movies Removed Fro Youtube.com

phan·tasm (fan-taz-em) "a dream, a nightmare, a sense of unreality, something in a place where it shouldn't be".
~Don Coscarelli

Mike cannot decide what is real and what isn't, and is plagued by vivid nightmares. He gets the shock of his life when he watches, with binoculars, the conclusion of the funeral of his older brother's friend--the mortician (the Tall Man), by himself, lifts the casket into the back of a hearse. Mike heads to the grounds of the mortuary, which is home to very bizarre happenings, including a unique security device. Enlisting the help of brother Jody and ice cream salesman Reggie, Mike attempts to vanquish the Tall Man


# The mansion used for the exterior shots of the mausoleum was also seen in the James Bond film A View to a Kill (1985).

# Sequels to the Phantasm films are made in comic book form.

# Don Coscarelli's and Reggie Bannister's parents can all be seen as extras in the funeral scene.

# The dwarves were played by children.

# The "ball" scenes were simple special effects. The sphere was being guided around a corner by a fishing line. The sphere was thrown from behind the camera by a baseball pitcher and then the shot was printed in reverse. The ball attaching itself to the man's head was filmed by sticking it on his head, then pulling it off, and printing the shot in reverse.

# The stone-looking interior of the mausoleum was actually constructed of plywood and marble colored plastic contact paper.

# Title was changed to "The Never Dead" for Australian audiences as not to confuse it with the popular Aussie sex comedy Fantasm (1976).

# The coffin that Mike sees the Tall Man lift by himself and shove back into the hearse was made out of balsa wood, empty, and had a rope on the side facing away from the camera to make it easier to handle.

# The copyright date shown during the closing credits of this film says MCMLXXVII (1977)

# This film's original running time was more than three hours, but writer/ director Don Coscarelli decided that that was far too long for it to hold people's attention and made numerous cuts to the film. Some of the unused footage was located in the late 1990's and became the framework for Phantasm IV: Oblivion (1998). The rest of the footage is believed to be lost.

# Don Coscarelli rented all of the filming equipment used to make this movie, always on Fridays so he could use it all weekend and return it on Mondays, all the while only actually having to pay one day's rental on the equipment.

# The film's Turkish title, 'MANYAK', translates to 'Psycho'.

# Filmed at the same mansion location used in Little Girls Blue (1978).

# Don Coscarelli took the title "Phantasm" from the works of Edgar Allan Poe. It is a term frequently used by Poe in his writings.

# The genesis of the story came to Don Coscarelli in a dream. One night, being in his late teens, he dreamed of fleeing down endlessly long marble corridors, pursued by a chrome sphere intent on penetrating his skull with a wicked needle. There was also a quite futuristic "sphere dispenser" out of which the orbs would emerge and begin chase.

# To get the inspiration needed, Don Coscarelli spent a couple of weeks in an isolated cabin at the mountains outside Los Angeles while writing the script.

# Don Coscarelli got the idea of The Tall Man's living severed finger while drinking from a styrofoam cup. He punched his finger through the bottom and started moving it. He loved the visual effect of it and decided to include it in the story.

# Although being very tall, standing at 6 feet 4 inches, Angus Scrimm wore suits several sizes smaller and boots with lifts inside that added 3 inches to his height.

# The role of Jody Pearson was originally intended for performer Gregory Harrison who played the title role in Don Coscarelli's first feature Jim the World's Greatest (1976)

# The song played on the front porch by Reggie and Jody, 'Sittin' Here At Midnight', was actually composed by Bill Thornbury himself.

# The spheres were designed by craftsman Willard Green who charged the production a little over $1,100 for his services. Sadly, he died just after production completed and never saw his work on the big screen.

# At the scene near the end when Reggie comes out of the funeral home, the production installed a wind machine with a huge fan blowing to create the effect of a very strong wind. As a joke, A. Michael Baldwin started throwing stones in front of the fan, that went to hit Reggie Bannister and Kathy Lester several times.

# The film was originally rated X by the MPAA because of the famous silver sphere sequence, and because of the man urinating on the floor after falling down dead. Los Angeles Times film critic Charles Champlin made a phone call in a favor to a friend on the board. Thanks to him, Phantasm was downgraded from the original dreaded X-rating to a more acceptable R. Champlin's positive review was quoted on the film's promotional posters.

# Don Coscarelli's mother, novelist Kate Coscarelli, held several titles on the production such as production designer, make-up artist and costume designer, all under various different names. She also wrote a novel adaptation based on the film. It was published in 2002 and only 500 copies were produced.

# Co-Producer Paul Pepperman approached Angus Scrimm at a sneak preview of Kenny & Company (1976) and told him that Don Coscarelli had written a role for him in his next production. When informed that he would be playing an alien, Scrimm became very excited and immediately asked to know what country his character would hail from. Pepperman said: "He's not from another country, he's from another world."

# There are several references to Frank Herbert's Dune, including a bar named "Dune" and a scene where Mike is forced to insert his hand into a black box that inflicts pain as part of a test.

# The 1971 Plymouth Barracuda was chosen because Don Coscarelli remembered a guy in high school had one, and was a little envious of him. A Barracuda was made to look like the Hemi 'Cuda. Bill Thornbury then took the car to a friend of his and had it custom striped so it felt like it was really his car. The true purpose of the car was so the brothers Mike and Jody could have a means of bonding. In fact, A. Michael Baldwin learned to drive in that car, he was only 14 at the time! After the movie was finished, the car was sold, and to this day nobody is sure what really happened to it. As a result the black Hemi 'Cuda became just as much of a hallmark to the series as the chrome spheres.

# The theme song is played by Death Metal band "Entombed" in the middle section of the title track of their debut album, 'Left Hand Path' (1990), before the solos.

# A piece of dialogue is used at the beginning of the song "Guilty Of Being Tight" included in the "Municipal Waste" album "Hazardous Mutation" (2005).

# The line of dialogue "The funeral is about to begin, Sir" was used by Black Metal band "Marduk" in their track 'Hearse', from the album 'World Funeral' (2003), and also by the Death Metal band "The Ravenous" in a track from their first album "Assembled in Blasphemy" (2000).

# The theme song is also played by the legendary Hungarian black metal/thrash band "Tormentor", in the title track "introduction" of their album, released in August 1988.

DABBE with english subtitles

This horror film was made 2006 in Turkey.Director Hasan Karacadag has inspired by J-Horror masterpieces ''kairo&ringu'' for his creepy and atmospheric supernatural shocker. But his main source of inspiration is Dabbe-tul arz, a demonic entity who is mentioned in the holybook of islam-Koran as the herald of the Apocalypse. Once the demon comes into the mortal world, his influence starts to spread like a spider web. Despite the obvious budgetary restraints, Karacadag manages to scare us slowly but surely, thanks to a solid script, aggressive sound design and a bunch of young, talented actors. The movie was a big hit in Turkey.

A young alien (David Love) falls for a pretty teenage Earth girl (Dawn Anderson) and they team up to try to stop the plans of his invading cohorts, who intend to use Earth as a food-breeding ground for giant lobsters from their planet. The invaders, who arrive in a flying saucer, carry deadly ray guns that turn Earth-people into skeletons.


* The film's producers could not afford to construct a giant lobster, so only its shadow is seen - cast, no doubt, by a normal-sized lobster.

* Although Warner Bros. distributed this ultra-low-budget sci-fi film, it was definitely not a Warner Bros. production. The studio needed a genre film to play as the second feature with the Godzilla sequel it was releasing under the title Gojira no gyakushû (1955) and bought this from producer Tom Graeff.

* Unable to afford time on a soundstage to film Betty Morgan's home, director Tom Graeff posed as a UCLA student directing a student project, and so obtained permission from an elderly woman to film for free in her home.

* The trim on the aliens' costumes is made from masking tape, and their space boots are men's dress shoes covered by socks.

* One skeleton was used for every dead body in the film. A hook/tag on the head and identification markings in permanent marker on the hip can clearly be seen on the skeleton in almost every scene. The skeleton also has curiously bolted limbs.

* The filmmaker was on such a tight budget that the film's ultimate weapon, the "focusing disintegrator", was actually a Hubley's Atomic Disintegrator toy cap gun, bought for a dime, with a flashbulb added as a beam. (In some scenes the words "Hubley's" can clearly be seen embossed on the side of the gun.) Atomic Disintegrators can be bought today on eBay for upwards of $300.

* Dawn Anderson, who played Betty, was actually a former child actress named Dawn Bender. Like most movie teenagers of the period, she was in her early twenties when this film was shot.

* The ZAP visual from the ray-gun toys was accomplished by a mirror glued on to the nozzle and pointed at the camera, which was hit by the "deadly" glare.

* The super alien apparatus with the dials was actually an old audio mixing device (from the days of the bulky vacuum tubes).

* The entire B movie is an extra on the 2005 PS2 video-game, "Destroy All Humans!". It becomes available once the main story campaign is completed.

* King Moody's movie debut.

* The night watchman at Station 86 is reading a book titled "The Flying Saucers are Real" by Donald Keyhoe.

Hotel 626 is an online game(originally to promote Doritos ) where you have to check into this haunted hotel and attempt to escape. The game is available to play between the hours of 6PM and 6AM only, you can change your computer clock to let you in immediately and you are asked to play the game in the dark, using your headphones and microphone (apparently at some point you have to sing a lullaby to a sleeping zombie child). Try it out and let me know what you think.

Believe it or not the game is really well made and fun to play.
