One of the bright surprises of the commentary tracks of this outstanding Criterion Collection release is that the filmmakers wanted comics to make jokes about their movie -- and that that is precisely the reason they chose the title they did. They shrewdly realized that jokes are great free advertising, and it worked -- the movie was a modest hit for Paramount, the Hollywood company that released it. But the movie was made far from Hollywood, in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, by filmmakers who'd ...

title: Rosemary's Baby function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Paramount Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Mia Farrow, John Cassavetes, Ruth Gordon, Sidney Blackmer, Maurice Evans, Ralph Bellamy, Elisha Cook, Jr., Charles Grodin release year: 1968 film rating: Five stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Today's horror movie freaks are often puzzled when told that 'Rosemary's Baby' is one of the greatest horror movies ever made. There's no blood, there's no violence to speak of, it's all about pregnancy, and the only monster is glimpsed but briefly. Because too many of today's horror movie buffs equate horror and action (as others equate science fiction and action) to the degree that they think that horror HAS to have lots of action, they end up bored by 'Rosemary's Baby.' Because they want explicit blood and guts, or at least a wisecracking monster, they miss the implications of the story and the carefully-build suspense.

title: Pet Sematary function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Paramount Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Dale Midkiff, Fred Gwynne, Denise Crosby, Blaze Berdahl, Miko Hughes, Brad Greenquist, Susan Blommaert, Michael Lombard release year: 1989 film rating: One star reviewed by: Bill Warren For a while, Paramount was turning out approximately one Stephen King adaptation a year; one or two were very good ("The Dead Zone," for example); most were bad. "Pet Sematary" is in the latter group; it's bottomed out only by its own sequel; even "Graveyard Shift" is more fun.

title: Tales Of Terror function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: MGM Home Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring: Vincent Price, Peter Lorre, Basil Rathbone, Debra Paget, Joyce Jameson, David Frankham, Maggie Pierce, Wally Campo release year: 1962 film rating: Three-and-a-half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren MGM has been steadily issuing old American International thrillers that, through complicated transactions, they've ended up owning. Hopefully, in time they'll work their way through all of the possible titles; entries in Roger Corman's series of Edgar Allan Poe adaptations, like 'Tales of Terror,' are particularly welcome.

title: The Dead Zone function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Paramount Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Christopher Walken, Brooke Adams, Herbert Lom, Tom Skerritt, Anthony Zerbe, Martin Sheen, Simon Craig, Colleen Dewhurst, Nicholas Campbell release year: 1983 film rating: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren The movies David Cronenberg directs from his own scripts tend to be dark, sardonic musings on the plasticity of the human body and mind. While some of those he adapts from the works of others, like "The Fly," can share and expand on these ideas, the adaptations tend to be more straightforward tales told in a classic, "style-less" style. A perfect example is "The Dead Zone," one of the best adaptations to date from a novel by Stephen King.
