Fashion house Gucci and late director Stanley Kubrick, two pop culture icons, have collaborated on a very “exquisite” pictorial campaign. It is a collection of shots that feature models seamlessly superimposed into some of Kubrick’s classic films. Most notably The Shining.
The inspiration comes from Italian fashion designer Alessandro Michele who says he has always been charmed by cinema and the powerful human stories that come from them.
“I’ve always imagined my collections as films able to convey a cinematography of the present: a score of stories, eclectic and dissonant, that can sacralize the human and its metamorphic ability,” he added.
The portfolio doesn’t just include The Shining. Other films include 2001: A Space Odyssey and A Clockwork Orange.
Here we see a model sporting space boots, a green gown, and black lace leggings posing in the corridors of a space station while Dave goes about his business.
Here we get the punks from A Clockwork Orange drinking milk plus, some sort of drug-infused beverage served in the film’s futuristic time.
But what really grabs our interest is this sporty number unironically standing in front of the famous green bathtub in room 237 at the Overlook Hotel from Kubrick’s classic The Shining. Although Stephen King wasn’t impressed with Kubrick’s adaptation, some people think this film is one of the scariest in history.
Other Kubrick films honored by the fashion house include the Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman opus Eyes Wide Shut, and the period piece Barry Lyndon.
The fashion world sometimes gets their muses from horror movies. Back in 2019 designer, Jeremy Scott took his inspiration from scary movies for his Moschino collection. The menswear and resort wear exhibition appropriated some classic characters for the print editorials.
Marvel Studios’ Special Presentation: Werewolf By Night
Marvel’s Werewolf By Night has just released its official trailer and release date of October 7th. It looks like a fun/creepy retro horror special that will be streaming directly to Disney +.
A page for the special on Disney+ also reveals it’s been rated TV-14 and has been filed under comedy as its genre. Furthermore, the synopsis on the page teases the death of one Ulysses Bloodstone.
“On a dark and somber night, a secret cabal of monster hunters emerge from the shadows and gather at the foreboding Bloodstone Temple following the death of their leader,” the synopsis reads. “In a strange and macabre memorial to the leader’s life, the attendees are thrust into a mysterious and deadly competition for a powerful relic—a hunt that will ultimately bring them face to face with a dangerous monster.”
With confirmation the special is involving the Bloodstone Temple, that stands to reason the reports of Donnelly playing Elsa Bloodstone would be accurate. In addition to the eponymous werewolf and Bloodstone, the trailer also confirmed the involvement of Man-Thing.
‘Scream’ Vibes Prevail In Kevin Willamson Co-Penned Story ‘Sick’ Movie Clip
Kevin Williamson hasn’t been too busy over the last few years. But it appears his ideas have. The new movie Sick which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) was inspired by one of the stories he wrote.
Of course we know the Williamson brand. It was everywhere in 90’s horror. That slick storytelling mostly featured cat-and-mouse situations around final girls and unyielding slashers.
It looks like that sensation is back if we take anything away from the exclusive clip Collider proved today. According to the logline we are two getting young women holed up in a lake house during the pandemic. They think they’re alone, but it’s clear someone is out to get them.
Director John Hyams is behind the camera, and it seems he is sticking to that Craven/Williamson aesthetic where the camera moves seamlessly through the scene to focus on an object, dark colors are glossy and landscapes are uplit.
Sick is scheduled to release in Canada on Sept. 11, but that’s according to IMDb. As for the rest of the world, we’ll have to wait and see when it hits theaters.
