Capturing Film's Unseen Moments: An Interview with Kim Gottlieb-Walker

Kim Gottlieb-Walker has worked with many titans of film like John Carpenter, Steven Spielberg, and Clint Eastwood. Shooting not only for film and television, she is responsible for many of the iconic photos of Bob Marley that we have today. She also honorably represents the Cinematographer’s Guild on their National Executive Board. Kim was gracious enough to let me interview her about her decades of experience.

You've worked on several of John Carpenter's films. Can you tell us what that experience was like from film to film working with the same director?

BGH Classic Pack - Deep Cuts

For any number of reasons, some episodes of the Bloody Good Horror Podcast have never been available as part of our BGH Classics. Call it a mystery. Call it a conspiracy. Call it laziness. Today, we can call it a thing of the past. We're plugging holes here people!

Horror Headlines: Tuesday July 5th, 2011

Need another reason to come out of your mom's basement and head to Comic Con this year? Well it looks like "Underworld 4" will get it's big premier there in just a couple weeks and what's more the film's star Kate Beckinsale will be on hand to answer a bunch of nerdy questions that you shouldn't actually care about. Dust off your Boba Fett costume, I bet she'll be impressed by it.

While things are still ramping up on Rob Zombie's "The Lords of Salem" the crusty one has been nice enough to give us a glimpse of one of the nasty props he has come up with for the film. Namely a big old chair with tons of little spiky bits shooting out of it that I assume will be used for some sort of witch trial fun. There's also a picture of his wife's ass on the page if the chair doesn't do it for you.

To celebrate it's 20th anniversary 1981's "Halloween 2" will be getting the blu-ray treatment on September 13th of this very year. Trust me I did the math. Along with an alternative ending the disc will also be packed with the 1984 documentary "Terror in the Aisles" which is hosted by Dr. Loomis himself, Donald Pleasence. I can't wait to see what they do for "Halloween H20" in just 7 short years.

Every jackass with a phone can get a video of Beyonce falling on her ass these days and luckily they can also get some video from the set of "The Dark Knight Rises". In the clip you can see Anne Hathaway prancing around the stand-in for Wayne Manor in foggy old England. honestly this could be a behind the scenes shot from "The Princess Diaries 3" for all I know. I think Christopher Nolan is set to direct that too.

In Real People News: 

A Michigan man who was arrested 5 years ago for making love to a sheep went back on the lamb (I know it's just to easy) recently and was taken back into custody after breaking into a local farm where a group of cows and pigs were being housed. Nice to see he loves all animals equally though. Nice to see in this day and age.

Well it's as good an excuse as any I guess. An Oregon man was arrested recently while looking into a woman's house after his excuse of looking for his cat didn't fly with the cops. Of course not many people look for their cat while using their body as an amusement park but what do I know. I'm more of a dog person.

MTV announces plans and casting info for their upcoming "Teen Wolf" TV series adaptation. Yes, you read that right.

Out promoting her upcoming movie "Avatar" that you may have heard of, Sigourney Weaver drops some possible plot bombs pertaining to "Ghostbusters 3". These are pretty juicy details, so I will leave them out of this post. If you're intrigued as to the future of Peter Venkman and Oscar the baby? Be sure to click through.

A 23 year old man dies during an arrest and search by local police. It turns out, his the huge bag of weed that he tried to swallow didn't go down as easily as he thought it would.

A drunken Chinese boy mystifies doctors as he magically changes the channel on the television every time he rolls over. Further testing proved that the magic came from the remote control lodged in his anus.

Ben Ferrett, a 27 year old South Carolina man, has been awarded compensation in court. He's being compensated for passing out at a party while his so called friend poured super glue into his ear and butt crack.

Horror Headlines: Friday October 23, 2009

I went to a midnight screening of SAW 6 last night. While I can hear the collective groan of most of you, I love those movies and this one is the best one yet. Lots of great kills, lots of smart twists and, weirdly, an incredibly persuasive health care reform stance. Jigsaw actually delivers a monologue about the insidiousness of the insurance companies and the need for change! Yes we can! Here's to hoping that SAW 7 3D will take a stance on high gas prices! “Greetings, Mr. Exxon. I'd like to play a game...”

Have you ever wanted to see Neve Campbell's moist, lip-quivering histrionics in the THIRD-DIMENSION? No? Well, sorry, but according to a Bloody Disgusting “exclusive”, Scream 4 will be shot in 3-D. Speaking of 3-D, Roger Ebert just wrote a great piece about how if you like 3-D you are an idiot. This Scream news really brings his point home.

Steve Niles confirms that 30 Days of Night: Dark Days is currently in production and starring such acting luminaries as...well, all that matters is that Diora Baird is headlining. I don't have to be a vampire to know what of hers I'd like to suck! (To clarify, it would be her breasts. Possibly her vagina, depending on her bathing habits.)

Rob Zombie, perhaps the greatest (horror) director of all-time, announced on his Myspace that his soon-to-be-classic Halloween 2 will be returning to theaters next weekend, just in time for the holiday. That's great news but, really Rob, Myspace? It's hard for me to defend you when you're still using an archaic social networking device as your primary news delivery system. Can we get a Facebook, or a Blogspot or something? I'd be willing to do it for you...

In Real People News: 

One time, when I was around 12 years old and living in Oklahoma City, my dad sent me to the grocery store to pick up a few things for dinner. I would walk to the store because it was only a few blocks and, while the neighborhood wasn't the best, there was very rarely any violence. As I was walking back, carrying some steaks, some ice cream and a two-liter of diet Doc Shasta, two chipped-tooth teenage toughs came out from the side of an apartment and pulled a gun on me, demanding my groceries or else they would “put a cap in my foot”. My dad, an ex-cop, would always sit on the front porch with a .38 (this is obviously where I get my paranoia from) and, when he saw these kids pull a gun on me, he reacted quickly and shot one of the kids in the back, while the other one took off running. Needless to say, dinner tasted great and the little bastard was paralyzed for life. Why do I bring this up? Because if this guy carried a .38, he'd be eating a delicious chicken dinner tonight.

In good health? Speak English or Russian? Have a background and work experience in medicine, biology, life support systems engineering, computer engineering, electronic engineering or mechanical engineering? Then you are the perfect candidate for a simulated 520-day Mars mission! I prefer just going to Rekall. KUATO LIVES!

Remember when science was all about fact, or at least searching for the truth? Dr. Holger Bech Nielsen and Dr. Masao Ninomiya have announced their theory that the giant atom-smashing Large Hadron Collider is being “jinxed from the future to save the world”. Yep. Our best scientists believe that time-travelers are sabotaging the collider. In related news, guess who Obama just appointed as our new science czars!

Box Office Special - Summer Goes Out With a Whimper

Labor Day, while an awesome excuse to lay around and do nothing for three days, is about as fallow a film going period as you'll find on the calendar. Just two years ago, "Halloween" set a new four-day weekend record with $30 million. Some weekends, that wouldn't even qualify for 2nd place, but on Labor Day it's a record.

Be sure to check it out and say hi to Charlie and Brad!

Box Office Special - Destination Trumps Halloween

Just like that it's over: one of the most highly anticipated weekends by horror fans in recent memory has come and gone. And while the merits of both "The Final Destination" and "Halloween 2" may be debated for some time, the box office results paint a far clearer picture.

Horror Headlines: Monday August 31st, 2009

I guess Bob Weinstein was paying attention to this week's box office results, because he's announced that there is already a 3D "Halloween" sequel in the works, and one that will be shot without Rob Zombie. They're already in talks with a director, whom Weinstein declined to name, although whoever it is will have a hell of a time making a sequel considering he has to deal with all of the baggage brought by Zombie to the series story-wise.

The 2010 "Girls of Scotchworthy" calender is now available. Love indie horror and the babes that work in it? Do yourself a favor and purchase a calender from these guys.

Nic Cage has signed on to "Drive Angry", a revenge/action movie from "My Bloody Valentine 3D" director Patrick Lussier. That's right baby, Nicholas Cage in glorious 3D. Better start preparing your mindholes for that now.

In Real People News: 

Naked dude hi-jacks school bus, but that visual isn't as intriguing as the one of the children who decided to jump out of a moving bus to get away. I smell a "Speed" sequel.

Now teens are using social networking sites to arrainge fights. Finally, a much more efficient way to organize a beatdown.

Not gonna lie, that does look pretty dirty. Don't spend too much time trying to work out the details of what exactly is happening though, that can't be good for you.

1888: Jack the Ripper kills his first known victim, prostitute Mary Ann Nichols, slitting her throat from ear to ear.
