Pupi Avati: The Man Behind The House With Laughing Windows

Posted 14th November 2012 at 04:09 PM by iluvdvds@Cult Labs

When it comes to cult Italian horror films, a few notorious names instantly spring to mind. From Lucio Fulci to Ruggero Deodato, Dario Argento and Mario Bava; there’s no doubt that these directors are some of the best names in cult Italian cinema. But with Shameless Screen Entertainment’s upcoming release of one of the greatest and most atmospheric gialli, The House With Laughing Windows, what better time than now, to look at the man responsible for this eerie thriller; Pupi Avati.

Robert The Doll

Posted 1st July 2010 at 08:16 PM by iluvdvds@Cult Labs

Haunted toys. We've all seen them in films. From Puppet Master to Child Play, haunted dolls provide great material for horror movies. But do such things exist? Well, the simple answer would appear to be, Yes. One of the most notorious cases involves a little doll that goes by the name of Robert and what a weird and VERY scary doll it is too. Is the doll really possessed/ alive?

Old Horror Radio Play!

Posted 14th May 2010 at 02:05 PM by iluvdvds@Cult Labs

Hellooo there!

It's been ages since I've done a blog, so hopefully you'll enjoy this.

Below is a link to something I've just made. I do luv a good horror story, especially an audio one (saves on reading ) So, just for you, is an old Horror Radio Show/Play entitled The Return From Death. And to add that extra bit of awesomeness, I've also added in old advertisments, trailers and even a song in the right places.

The story is pretty average to be...

Screenplay Task!

Posted 19th January 2010 at 11:09 AM by iluvdvds@Cult Labs

Hey there! I haven't done one of these in aggges - but, having spoken to Sam, thought this would be a nice blog.

Basically, at uni, I've just started the Screenwriting module and our first task was to create an opening scene from the below dialogue. We couldn't change the words, the order of the words, the characters or anything else like that. This is the original script:

1. Oh.
2. Yes.
1. Why are you doing this?
2. It's for the best.

Right, lets see if this will actually work. I've never done this before - so what better time to give it a try. Anyways, IF it does work (!), below are 5 little videos I've put together. Quite simply, as we're giving away 3 Anchor Bay DVDs - known for their horror releases, all the videos are are 5 trailers to well known films with the picture removed (and replaced with...

Martyrs review! :D

Posted 16th April 2009 at 06:46 PM by iluvdvds@Cult Labs

Well, I thought I’d jump on the Shameless bandwagon and start posting the odd review in the blogs too! Plus I do have a tendency to write quite long and ramble on a bit (!) so a blog actually seems more appropriate than a thread. So here we go... enjoy!
May contain teeny-weeny spoilers (but I’ll warn you when there’s a biggy! :P )

So I got asked to go see this film up London to the ICA...
