AT LAST!! For you obscure media fans, here is one of legendary filmmaker Tim Burton’s early efforts in collaboration with The Disney Channel that aired only once on Halloween night in 1983.
"After the initial airing, Disney Channel execs were so distraught by the frightening subject matter, that they never allowed the film to be shown again. Thankfully, someone managed to tape it that night, which provides us with this footage…"

It won’t be on sale until June 17, but we couldn’t wait to share this! One of the great horror novels of the late 20th century, Michael McDowell’s THE ELEMENTALS (1981), a haunted house story unlike any you’ve ever read, reprinted for the first time ever, featuring a new introduction by award-winning horror author Michael Rowe and stunning cover art by M.S. Corley. McDowell is best known for his screenplays for Tim Burton films but is now being rediscovered as a master of Southern Gothic literature. You won’t want to miss this one!

Batman Returns - Michelle Pfeiffer as Selina Kyle/Catwoman wearing her latex “Bride of Frankenstein” catsuit and matching mask.

This what Mary Vogt (the film’s costume designer, along with Bob Ringwood) explained about this specific outfit: “We knew we wanted it to be black and sexy and tight and shiny. Latex is as black and sexy and tight as you can get. When Bob Ringwood and I first designed the costume, it was for another actress. She had to drop out and Michelle came in, at the last minute.”

"It was difficult to wear – we had to cover Michelle with baby powder before she got into the suit. We made a body cast of her, and the costume was made on the body cast. We were afraid that it would rip, because she had these cat claws, and because it’s latex, once it ripped it’s over, you can’t repair it. So we had to make about 40 cat-suits, but actually it never ripped, it was very strong."

"Tim Burton came up with the idea for the stitches. He had this vision of the calico cat – with its stitches starting to come apart. Bob Ringwood and I were like, stitches? On latex? How do we do that? So we sculpted stitches in cast and glued them on. It looked terrible! So we decided to brush her in silicon, this thick liquid. After she had the costume on, we painted the silicon on her with big sponge brushes. So she’s dripping all over the place. But silicon, because it’s so shiny, when it was lit all you saw was the shine. And since she was moving around at night, it looked really fluid. That costume is all about the light – and of course, all about Michelle. At the end of the day, you’re helping the actor create the character. Whether they come from another planet or down the block, if it’s cavemen or contemporary, you have to go with what the actor’s personality is, they have to feel comfortable.”

"Johnny Depp is set to play the lead role in a remake of the 1971 Horror Classic The Abominable Dr. Phibes.

"Director Tim Burton, a longtime fan of Vincent Price and the Phibes films, is on board to direct the updated version of the movie which is at its heart, a gothic love story."
