Celebrate Valentine's Day with THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, BELA LUGOSI, & GOOSEBUMPS


Celebrate Valentine's Day with The Silence of the Lambs & Bela LugosiNew apparel on sale now at Fright-Rags.comGoosebumps collection coming February 28


Pair your Valentine's Day dinner with some fava beans and a nice Chianti! Jonathan Demme's The Silence of the Lambs was released on February 14, 1991, and Fright-Rags continues the Valentine tradition with a new line of apparel from the Oscar-winning film that introduced Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter.



The Silence of the Lambs collection includes four shirts, ranging from newly-commissioned artwork to production stills, including a glow-in-the-dark design. Put the lotion in the basket with a pair of crew socks and an enamel pin of the "death's-head" moth that has become synonymous with the film.

Despite being portrayed by countless talented actors, no one embodies the character of Dracula more than Bela Lugosi. Fright-Rags has teamed with the Lugosi estate to release two shirts and a pair of socks featuring the classic horror icon in his signature Dracula costume.



Later this month, Fright-Rags will expand its Goosebumps collection. The additions will include shirts for two of R.L. Stine’s bestselling Goosebumps books - Say Cheese and Die and One Day at Horrorland - along with a pair of socks featuring the Goosebumps logo.

The Silence of the Lambs and Bela Lugosi collections are on sale now at Fright-Rags.com. The Goosebumps collection will be released on February 28 at 10am EST.

Fright-Rags is also re-printing several popular shirts on February 21, including designs from Halloween, The Thing, Dawn of the Dead, The Evil Dead, Creepshow, and more.

PosterSpy: Alternative movie posters by true movie fans


Alternative movie posters by true movie fans in PosterSpy: Alternative Movie Poster Collection


Schiffer Publishing, Ltd. would like to introduce PosterSpy: Alternative Movie Poster Collection. PosterSpy is a collection of today's best alternative posters by artists who really "get" the films, with nearly 300 posters by 58 artists from around the world. 

Way before the advent of social networks, the first, and sometimes only, visual contact you may have had with a movie was its poster. To return to this enlightened approach and escape the hard selling, marketing campaigns of today’s releases, this book pays tribute to the artists who celebrate the era when cinematographic posters made us dream. Presented by ARTtitude, this collaboration features the contemporary work of 58 different artists from the PosterSpy art community, one of the most influential groups devoted to alternative posters. The nearly 300 posters presented here cover a diverse range of genres and eras, from pop culture favorites like Star Wars and Goonies to the Wes Anderson filmography to horror and sci-fi classics. Each piece reveals intensely creative and detailed representations of films that ask the viewer to see the film in a new way and challenges the visual package included with the original release.

In this beloved family-favorite, it’s the early 1960s and fifth-grader Scotty Smalls (Tom Guiry) has just moved into town with his folks (Karen Allen and Denis Leary).

It’s the beginning of a magical summer of baseball, wild adventures, first kisses and fearsome confrontations with the dreaded beast and its owner (James Earl Jones) who live behind the left field fence. Soon nine boys have become best friends, Scotty is part of a team, and their leader has become a local legend in this hilarious and warmhearted comedy.

 

This crowd-pleasing gift set includes a set of 10 custom Topps® baseball cards — featuring Scotty Smalls, Benny “The Jet” and the rest of the ragtag roster — created exclusively for this release. The major-league treatment continues with an all-new booklet filled with behind-the-scenes photos from the film director’s personal archive and an all-new, full-color poster.

Women in Horror Month Kicks Off with DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK Apparel



Women in Horror Month kicks off with Dead Hooker in a Trunk apparel
New Texas Chainsaw Massacre merchandise also available from Terror-Threads.com

Terror Threads kicks off Women in Horror Month with a line of merchandise for the Soska Sisters' debut film, Dead Hooker in a Trunk. Sam Coyne has created a new design for the indie exploitation flick, which comes on T-shirts, baseball tees, tank tops, and glitter-accented enamel pins.

At the request of the Soskas, Terror Threads has also made baseball tees featuring the Dead Hooker in a Trunk logo, just like the ones that were created to promote the film upon its original release in 2009.

The limited edition pins are a pre-order item and will ship later this month, while everything else in stock now. As evidenced by the company's previous Soska Sisters collection, this merchandise is likely to sell out!



Terror Threads expands its line of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre apparel with three new designs. One features Sam Coyne's illustration of iconic imagery and characters, and the other two utilize stills from Tobe Hooper's 1974 classic. They're all available on T-shirts, baseball tees, and tank tops, with select designs on hoodies.

Dead Hooker in a Trunk and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre apparel are on sale now at TerrorThreads.com.

-- USA Today

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Examining the creative and commercial value of musical sampling, including the related debates over artistic expression, copyright law, and (of course) money, COPYRIGHT CRIMINALS: THE FUNKY DRUMMER EDITION arrives on DVD this February to attempt to answer a question on behalf of an entire creative community: can you own a sound?

From director Benjamin Franzen, this acclaimed doc, which originally aired on PBS' "Independent Lens" traces the rise of hip-hop from the urban streets of New York to its current status as a multibillion-dollar industry. For more than thirty years, innovative hip-hop performers and producers have been re-using portions of previously recorded music in new, otherwise original compositions. When lawyers and record companies got involved, what was once referred to as a "borrowed melody" became a "copyright infringement."

Showcasing many of hip-hop music's founding figures like Public Enemy, De La Soul, and Digital Underground -- while also featuring emerging hip-hop artists from record labels Definitive Jux, Rhymesayers, Ninja Tune, and more. COPYRIGHT CRIMINALS also provides an in-depth look at artists who have been sampled, such as Clyde Stubblefield (James Brown's drummer and the world's most sampled musician), as well as commentary by another highly sampled musician, funk legend George Clinton.
