In Grim Celebration (Of Hannibal Lecter)

Image
In 1991, on Valentines Day no less, the Academy Award winning Best Picture "The Silence Of The Lambs" was released. It ushered in a new era in horror and solidified the monster Hannibal 'The Cannibal' Lecter in the halls of horror. The award winning performance by Sir Anthony Hopkins was reprised in the sequel "Hannibal" and the prequel "Red Dragon." He was earlier played by the fantastic Brian Cox in the now celebrated "Manhunter" ("Red Dragon" earlier adaptation) and was played one last time theatrically by Gaspard Ulliel in "Hannibal Rising," to little fanfare. After those later films, the saga was resurrected brilliantly in the television adaptation "Hannibal" and the legendary Dr. Lecter was portrayed with brilliance by Mads Mikkelsen.
Now as we enter another Oscar awards show this upcoming Sunday the 24th, let us remember when horror conquered Academy Awards. We as horror fans never needed the accolad…

Our Beloved Horror Icon, ALICE COOPER!!! (Happy Birthday!)

Image
The one and only Alice Cooper is the original pioneer of 'shock rock' and to many of the bands and acts that have followed in his lead, he is STILL the best.
His blend of heavy rock and horror theatrics have been a draw for generations of fans, whether they're into rock or metal. Or into horror movies. Or grand theatrics. He covers it all.
With the passing of many of our beloved horror icons (recently "Creature From The Black Lagoon"s Julie Adams left us), let's be grateful to the stars above that our shock rock king Alice Cooper is not only around, but kicking @$$ to this day! LONG LIVE ALICE COOPER!!!







The Trailblazer Duane Jones (Happy Birthday)

Image
I would believe for any actor, receiving a leading role because you were the best actor in the group gives you great satisfaction. Such was the case for "Night Of The Living Dead" star Duane Jones. The casting itself became groundbreaking and Mr. Jones lived up to the confidence of his director George A. Romero. The release of the first modern Zombie film in the era of post segregation in the late 1960's America made this film one for the ages. An important film with an important performance from Mr. Jones.
Happy birthday Duane Jones and thank you for blazing the trail for others. The film and your performance will live on...
