16 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Why bother going out to the multiplex when the movies you want to see are on Netflix? Whether it's a classic weepie like "An Affair to Remember," an Audrey Hepburn movie, a Jane Austen favorite or "Clueless" (again), here are some of the best chick flicks streaming on Netflix right now. (Availability subject to change.)

Review: Halloween Complete Collection Blu-ray Box Set (Deluxe Edition)

4 October 2014 7:48 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

By Jennica Lynn Johnson

MoreHorror.com

“Look, the boogeyman can only come out on Halloween night, right?”

Sorry, Laurie, but this year Halloween came early. On September 23rd, horror fans near and far—myself included—rejoiced when Shout Factory / Scream Factory released a 10-disc (or 15-disc if you threw down the extra cash for the Deluxe Edition) Blu-ray box set containing every film in the Halloween franchise along with a wide array of bonus features. It’s time to lock your doors and hold on tight as I guide you through the night he came home… with me.

Before digging into the discs themselves, it is impossible not to acknowledge the beauty of the box that houses the discs. On one side, there is the classic jack-o-lantern which has become iconic to the Halloween franchise.

What is really worth noting is the Michael Myers artwork on the two opposite sides of the box. »

John Carpenter to Release Lost Themes Album

John Carpenter and Jamie Lee Curtis participated in a Q&A last night in Hollywood for a Halloween screening event put on by Beyond Fest.

While you can get some of the highlights from the event in our previous report here, there's one thing that was certainly deserving of its own news item.

Carpenter revealed that early next year, he'll be putting out an album that will contain all of his "lost" themes. That should be an interesting mix, for sure!

Beyond Fest: Video Highlights from the Curtis and Carpenter Halloween Q&A

2 October 2014 8:14 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

"I am Halloween," Jamie Lee Curtis confessed to a packed Egyptian Theater. This was met with a roar of approval from the audience who had gathered last night (October 1st) for a special Halloween 4k screening presented by Beyond Fest.

The actress took part in a pre-screening Q&A - a rare public appearance to talk about the film with director John Carpenter and, needless to say, it was quite a treat for fans.

Carpenter was his usual honest, candid self and Curtis quickly warmed up to the crowd, got a little foul-mouthed and provided a lot of fun anecdotes.

‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ – 30 Years Later

1 October 2014 6:43 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A Nightmare on Elm Street

Directed by Wes Craven

Written by Wes Craven

2014, USA

Wes Craven intended Nightmare to be an exploration of surreal horror as opposed to just another stalk-and-slash horror movie, and not only did Nightmare offer a wildly imaginative, inspired concept, but it was a solid commercial genre entry for the dating crowd. Elm Street was New Line’s first genuine mainstream cinematic venture (after Alone In The Dark), and made the company a huge pile of money. The film was shot in 30 days at a cost of roughly $1.8 million, but it made back its figure and then some on opening weekend. New Line Cinema was saved from bankruptcy by the success of the film, and was jokingly nicknamed “the house that Freddy built.” Perhaps the most influential horror film of the ’80s, Craven’s 1984 slasher about a quartet of high school kids terrorized in their dreams »

5 Horror Remakes That Are Better Than the Original

1 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Hey, it’s almost Halloween, so let’s all get ready by putting this on repeat for the rest of the month and talking about some horror movies. Specifically, let’s take a look at the dreaded horror remake. Everyone’s gotten one now — Freddy, Jason, Michael Meyers, and even the freaking Amityville Horror have all seen attempted remakes of their films. Why the hell are the production demons in Hollywood foisting these turds on us? Everyone knows that horror remakes always suck. Except when they don’t, anyway. 5. The Thing John Carpenter’s The Thing is a classic of the sci-fi horror genre. The original? Not so much. In fact, there’s a significant chunk of people who only know it even exists because Jamie Lee Curtis is watching it on TV in HalloweenThe Thing from Another World is your fairly basic 1950’s sci-fi film, with an invader from another world (go figure) who lumbers »

This is a huge week for horror fans, as the highly anticipated Halloween box set arrives from Anchor Bay and Scream Factory to officially set the mood for autumn and begin the countdown to the spookiest day of the year. There are also several other fantastic Blu-ray and DVD collections joining the ranks of Michael Myers as well, including Elvira, Jigsaw and Pazuzu!

One of my personal favorites, The Innocents, is also getting the hi-def treatment from Criterion this week, as well as the late 80’s cult classic StageFright, which is being released by Blue Underground. There are also a few new films getting released, including Wer, Found and the sci-fi thriller The Signal. Fans of Sonno Profondo will also be able to pick up a copy of the film on VHS this week too.

Heather’s Favorite Things About Halloween: The Complete Collection (Deluxe Edition)

22 September 2014 4:39 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The long wait for Halloween fans is almost over- Scream Factory and Anchor Bay’s stunning box set, Halloween: The Complete Collection, finally arrives tomorrow and I was very fortunate to have had the opportunity recently to immerse myself in all things Michael Myers in order to take a look at what they put together for their definitive Deluxe Edition Blu-ray set.

While I believe that The Complete Collection is absolutely a worthy addition to any fan’s home entertainment library, I know that there are some concerns out there from Halloween fans that buying the pricey set means they are forced to re-buy several of the franchise’s titles once again (especially considering most of the Halloween films already celebrated their individual releases in high-def over the last two years). That sentiment is true to a certain degree but, as a fan, I couldn’t imagine not picking »

Eugenio Derbez Developing ‘The Valet’ Remake Under New Pantelion Deal

5 September 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mexican star Eugenio Derbez is developing a remake of the French film “The Valet” as the first project under his new first-look deal with Pantelion Films.

The exclusive deal with Derbez underscores the high stakes of reaching the coveted Hispanic moviegoing audience — a fast-growing demographic at the box office.

Derbez starred in and directed Pantelion’s hit “Instructions Not Included,” the highest-grossing Spanish-language film ever released in the U.S. at $44 million. The film grossed another $55 million outside the U.S.

“Pantelion and Televisa can reach my core fan base better than anyone and, with the distribution expertise and brand recognition of Lionsgate, I know we can build on the crossover audience that we began to reach with ‘Instructions,'” Derbez said.

Derbez also starred in 2007’s “Under the Same Moon,” which took in about half of its $23 million worldwide in the U.S.
