News: SyFy Orders George R.R. Martin's Nightflyers To Series

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies

http://www.spoilerfreemoviesleuth.com -   A few months back we reported that SyFy was working on a pilot for a new translation of George R.R. Martin's Nightflyers as a pilot. Apparently, they're so impressed with how it's coming out that they've already green lit the entire first season. Originally published as a science fiction short in 1980 by Analog Science Fiction and Fact, the story was turned into a 1987 film that didn't do very well at the box office. It starred '80s female lead Catherine Mary Stewart. Now with Martin's Game of Thrones prepping its concluding season, another one of his properties may become a huge hit for the SyFy in partnership with Netflix. If they can put a reasonable budget behind the show, the cable outlet may be able to bring over a lot of HBO's viewership for this series. Although M

Arrow Video: The Love of a Woman (1953) - Reviewed

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies

http://www.spoilerfreemoviesleuth.com - Arrow Video, like The Criterion Collection, continues to prove themselves to be a benchmark of educational film releasing informing this still young but eager to learn cinephile of some of the greatest films from the world over.  Their latest offering, the final film of still largely unknown in the US French director Jean Gremillon The Love of a Woman is no exception, providing viewers with all the hallmarks of a grandiose tragic romantic melodrama steeped in uncompromising realism with a hefty dose of ambiguity as to whether or not we should feel elated or devastated by what transpires.  Whereas an American film production of this story would have taken a black or white, happy or sad choice for our central protagonist in the end, The Love of a Woman brilliantly sidesteps an eas

Blu Reviewed: Arrow Video's The Slayer

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies

http://www.spoilerfreemoviesleuth.com - Given the title, I'm thinking it'sprobably The Slayer...Arrow Video has really dug deep into the obscure corners of cult filmdom this time around, and has unearthed a slasher film which has a good word-of-mouth reputation among serious connoisseurs of the genre, yet is very rarely actually seen. The Slayer has a certain amount of notoriety for two reasons: firstly, it was among the notorious banned-in-the-UK “video nasties,” and secondly, its old VHS releases boasted some eye-grabbing cover art which burned itself into the retinas of many a kid growing up in the video store era. But despite being much talked-about in certain horror-lover circles for those reasons, this film has been notoriously difficult to find pretty much since the 1980s. In the US, its only home media release was a big
