The 9 Scariest Moments of the New One Direction Video

18 April 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One Direction, the boy band with at least two members who look like 10-year-old Jodie Foster, are back with a moody new ballad and video called "You And I." I assume it's about how sad they are to be lifting song titles from Lady Gaga. But honestly, watch this video. It's going for something. A feeling? I'm not sure, but it's weird and scary. Bizarre. And now, here are nine times it terrified me. 1. Niall's contemplation Oh, acting. I did not know acting would be making a cameo in this video. Niall kicks off this party by looking around in a sort-of-contemplative-but-mostly-dumbfounded way, and the camera pulls back to reveal he is dressed like Edie Sedgwick shopping at Zara. Mmm, moodz.  2. That First Morph. Imagine if you looked down for a second, looked up, and suddenly you were a bearded person with too many feelings. That happened to Niall Horan today. »

'American Idol' Recap: Dexter Roberts Sent Home, Kevin Bacon Steps In For Ryan Seacrest

17 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

American Idol’s results show Thursday started off with a surprise twist – The Following star Kevin Bacon stepping into Ryan Seacrest’s hosting shoes to kick off the night.

American Idol Recap

After Bacon passed the torch back to Seacrest, the top seven finalists were shown chatting about their performances and shared what they’d most like to do with a brand new Ford Mustang. Then, finally, the show got around to hearing Randy Jackson’s personal recap of Wednesday night.

Jackson, basically parroting the judges, mentioned Dexter Robert’s desperate need to make the songs he chooses his own. The former judge had similar advice for Cj Harris and wondered if Jess Meuse – who was harshly critiqued by the judges Wednesday – had done enough onstage to get America’s votes. Alex Preston, Sam Woolf, Caleb Johnson and Jena Irene, according to Jackson, would likely all be safe.

American Idol 2014 Eliminated Dexter Roberts Tonight,April 17th

17 April 2014 6:59 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Tonight's elimination episode, kicked off with host, Ryan Seacrest,acting legend Kevin Bacon, and the judges, waisting a lot of time with some "behind the scenes" footage of the final contestants and some other stuff that made me zone out. Luckily, Fox has given them only 30 minutes to wrap things up,so it wasn't long before they had to look at the recap footage of Jena Irene,Alex Preston,and Dexter Roberts, so Ryan could tell us that Dexter had indeed landed in the bottom 2 this week for vote-getting. After a break, they looked at recap footage for Caleb Johnson,Cj Harris,Sam Woolf, and Jessica Meuse. Then Ryan revealed that all them were safe except for Jessica, so she joined Dexter on the bottom 2 stools. Finally, after the last break, Ryan revealed that Jessica was safe, which of course, meant that Dexter Roberts was next on America's hit list tonight. »

American Idol: Kevin Bacon's Surprise Appearance and a Not-So Shocking Elimination

17 April 2014 6:57 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

And the cuts just keep on coming! Before we get into that, does any one else think that it was beyond random that Kevin Bacon opened tonight's live results show of American Idol? We love Bacon, and we know that he's the star of Fox's The Following, (which we love!) but we would have never guessed that surprise appearance in a million years. But hey, we ain't mad at it. We love bacon in any form we can get. Anyways back to the competition: The top seven sang their hearts out this week, but as usual, American was tasked with kicking one of our finalists out of the running for season 13's crown. So who were in the bottom two this week? Host Ryan Seacrest revealed it the two singers with »

'American Idol' Recap: Kevin Bacon Surprises on Results Night

17 April 2014 6:52 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The top seven finalists of American Idol left their fates in each other's hands with a theme of "competitor's picks," but one contestant fell short of his goal and ran out of luck on his journey. Thursday night's half-hour segment kicked off with yet another left-field celebrity cameo, as actor Kevin Bacon filled in for Ryan Seacrest with the show's opener. His appearance gave the remaining singers of Season 13 an unexpected perk: They can now link themselves to Bacon in the infamous six degrees of separation game.

Recap: 'American Idol' Season 13 - Top 7 Results

17 April 2014 5:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Once again, it's like this: Assuming Jena Irene, Caleb Johnson and Alex "New Hampshire's Own" Preston are safe on Thursday (April 17) night's "American Idol," I don't much care who goes home or who's in the Bottom 3.  There are the three people I care about and the cannon fodder. The big question: How is "American Idol" planning on killing the 30 minutes tonight? For the second straight week, Fox hasn't bothered to announce a guest performer, which either means that the producers decided they were happily able to fill the half-hour without a musical number, or they're having trouble booking guests. I have no evidence to confirm the latter. So... Who knows? On to the recap! 9:00 p.m. Et. Forget what I said about no guests, because... Kevin Bacon! He's introducing the show and trying to remind us that he has a TV show. A TV show on Fox! A TV »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Animal House'

17 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

Fat, drunk, and stupid may not be the best way to go through life, but it sure does create one memorable film character!

Movies have often been set in and around college campuses, but none quite like Animal House. From toga parties to food fights, the film not only introduced us to many collegiate cinematic clichés, but pretty much reinvented the entire genre. When you think of a college movie, you think of Animal House.

John Belushi made a huge leap from TV onto the big screen as Bluto, the exact opposite of what you think a fraternity boy would »

Watch the Snowy First Trailer for Ryan Reynolds's 'The Captive' (Video)

17 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Earlier today we found out that super hunky movie star Ryan Reynolds is headed to France with "The Captive," a kidnapping thriller directed by the always interesting and occasionally wonderful Canadian filmmaker Atom Egoyan ("The Sweet Hereafter," and that weird sex movie with Kevin Bacon). Well, following the announcement, we are gifted with a trailer for the movie, which looks tense, tragic and really snowy.

In the trailer, Reynolds plays a doting dad who leaves his little girl in the car while he goes to pick up a pie. When he comes back to the car, she is missing, leading to a frantic search and what appears to be a pretty elaborate conspiracy. Other cast members who appear in the trailer include Mireille Enos (as Reynolds's wife and the mother of the missing girl), Rosario Dawson as an investigator, Kevin Durand as (surprise!) a creepy weirdo, and Scott Speedman and »

The Following, Ep. 2.13, “The Reaping” brings season to new high

16 April 2014 7:07 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Following, Season 2, Episode 13, “The Reaping”

Written by Kevin Williamson and Megan Martin

Directed by Joshua Butler

Airs Mondays at 9pm (Et) on Fox

When The Following began its second season it seemed like it had fixed its previous issues. But those old problems eventually began to resurface and season two was faced with unnecessary plot twists, important characters with nothing to do, and countless storylines that didn’t seem to go anywhere.

“The Reaping” has one central issue and that’s Kingston Tanner (Tom Cavanagh). When he was introduced in “Betrayal” it was an interesting choice. On one hand, the idea of Joe (James Purefoy) fighting a religious war with a man who doesn’t exactly seem on the up and up and who represents what Joe viciously hates is fascinating. At the same time, it’s problematic that the writers have introduced a new character this late in the season. »

The Following Season 2 – Episode 13 Review

16 April 2014 5:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Matt Smith reviews episode 13 of The Following season 2…

The producers of The Following seem to have been biding their time. While nowhere near impeccable in their setting up of the end times their religious war has implied, things are coming to a head. Joe Carroll has another master plan that looks like it’ll end with yet another confrontation with Ryan Hardy.

Joe Carroll was always a bit of a reflection of the producers in the way he masterminded everything without ever revealing too much, in the first season in a more obvious way as he literally wrote about what was going to happen, and in this season he’s appearing on TV screens within TV screens to tell both the fictional and real audiences what is going to happen.

As a character, he even seems aware of the tension-sapping rule of protagonists. While the type of show ties itself »

The Following season 2 episode 13 review: The Reaping

15 April 2014 11:21 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Ron Hogan 16 Apr 2014 - 07:15

The Following comes to the violent confrontation it's been building towards all season...

This review contains spoilers.

2.13 The Reaping

Throughout the season, The Following has been building to something. Basically, they've been threatening a clash of cults. Joe's cult versus Lily's cult versus the FBI and Ryan's little cult of followers (Max and Mike and sometimes Claire). It's been teased, hinted at, and outright planned by certain parties on the show, but it has finally come to fruition, and it's as bananas as you would expect from this particular show.

There's been a relatively slow confluence of events to lead up to the big throw-down. Ryan followed the killers from the college and dropped his phone. Joe calls Lily, who traces the call and figures out where Korban is located. Lily hires a mercenary, who rents a car, which the FBI tracks. When they »

Camp Dread Reminds Us of Wonderful Summers Past

15 April 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

The clean, crisp air; the smell of the campfire; the call of nature. (Wait! What?) Yes, those are all wonderful things we associate with summer camp. A time for young people to venture out on their own and have experiences they'll remember for the rest of their lives... even if that's only about another 25 minutes.

The upcoming film Camp Dread, starring Eric Roberts, rekindles all those great memories of summer camp horror movies past, and oh, how we love them.

After becoming the setting of some truly memorable films in the 80's, summer camp has forever been tagged as the perfect hunting ground for the slasher. It's secluded, it's quiet, and it's filled with poorly supervised camp residents and camp counselors. Is there a more perfect recipe for a bloody good time than that? I think not!

So where do we start? Of course with the counselors. Oh those irresponsible, »

14 April 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

This story contains details about Monday’s episode of The Following. Proceed with caution!

While we certainly didn’t see Lily Gray’s demise in the cards, Connie Nielsen says she saw her character’s death coming “a mile away.” From her perspective, Lily’s days were always numbered. But sad as Nielsen is to be among the casualties this season, she tells EW, “I think exactly how she came in — she came in really just outrageous and strong and unafraid.” “I feel like she went exactly the way she would have wanted to go.”

But how did she go? »

In case you still aren't convinced that Jimmy Fallon pays close attention to YouTube, take a look at his latest video. The Tonight Show host has thanked his YouTube fans for helping his channel reach three million subscribers by bringing together his cast and crew for a rendition of "La Bamba". At the beginning of the video, Fallon addresses his YouTube subscribers. "That is incredible," he exclaims. "We appreciate every single one of you taking the time to watch our videos. Three Million!"

Young David Mazouz is having a hell of a year! First he's cast in Incarnate (also from Blumhouse), then he's picked to portray young Bruce Wayne in the TV Batman prequel “Gotham,” and now he's been tapped to appear in Greg McLean's new terror tale, 6 Miranda Drive.

According to Deadline, Mazouz (pictured) joins the previously announced Kevin Bacon and Radha Mitchell in the film about a family that unwittingly brings a fear-feeding supernatural force with them when they return from a Grand Canyon vacation.

Six of the Best: Laura Linney

11 April 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It can’t be easy as a  working actress in Hollywood where, save a few notable exceptions, women are pigeonholed into convenient, one-dimensional archetypes – virgin, vixen, vessel, victim, villain – eventually condemned to onscreen marriages and partnerships with men two decades their senior and then flung into an oubliette when they themselves have the temerity to age.

Laura Linney is one among an increasing number of shrewd professionals who have built a carrier from subverting these supporting roles and using them as stepping stones to leading lady status. To coincide with the DVD release of the fourth and final season of The Big C we are showcasing six of her performances

See a Half Dozen More Images from The Following Episode 2.13 - The Reaping

10 April 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

"The Following" continues to confound us. It seems like each season starts out promisingly, goes off the rails in the middle, and then comes back around at the end. And here we are near the end of Season 2 with Episode 2.13, "The Reaping," on its way. Will it follow the same pattern?

Again we ask: Why the hell does this show need 15 episodes per season? Stick with 12, or 13 at the most, and maybe things will improve. Powers-that-be, are you listening?

In any event, here are some stills and a new promo!

25 Disney Characters as Hogwarts Students — Mashup Art

Prince Hans, Queen Elsa, Princess Anna, and Kristoff Bjorgman

Magical Disney characters attending Hogwarts makes a kind of logical sense, but what about the muggles? Artist Annabella, aka Eira1893, gives no clear answer on that but does give us some really fun art. My only wish is that these pieces didn't have the ragged border.

Annabella should do Disney villains as Hogwarts headmasters. That would be pretty cool to see.

What's your favorite death scene from the Friday the 13th franchise? Is it the one where Mrs. Voorhees stuck an arrow through a young Kevin Bacon's throat? The epic sleeping bag kill from Part 7?
