“The boys and girls of Sigma Phi. Some will live. Some will die.” –Terror Train‘s tagline, aka the best tagline ever. Saturday October 3rd marked the 35th anniversary to the Jamie Lee Curtis slasher Terror Train, and we thought we’d write a short piece to celebrate the film! It wasn’t my plan to write two tributes to […] »

With the leaves turning and Halloween on the way, October is prime time for watching movies that scare the hell out of you. And one of the scariest of the last few decades is making its way back to theaters to give you even more nightmares. John Carpenter’s slasher classic Halloween is making its way back to theaters, though your window to see this on the big screen one more time is very, very small. Fathom Events is going to bring a young Jamie Lee Curtis and the original Michael Myers back to theaters for one night, and one night only. That’s not a terribly shocking development; every year about this time, reparatory screenings of the original Halloween go down all over the country, but this one won’t take place exactly when you expect it to, as it happens on Thursday, October 29, sandwiched between »
Scream Queens' campy combination of comedy and horror continues at a lick in episode two, Chainsaw...
This review contains spoilers.
Scream Queens' first week was a culture shock, a barmy helter-skelter of an opener that lay its cards firmly on the table. We're watching a satire that blends together comedy and horror, and episode two, Chainsaw, continues to prove that Scream Queens is capable of both a good joke and a good murder. While the pilot and Hell Week strived for a gag-a-minute rate and as many gory deaths as possible, Chainsaw reels things in a little.
For starters, we only got one death and it was a bit of a cheat. While Ariana Grande's Chanel #2, 'Deaf Taylor Swift', Ms Bean and Shondell all bit the dust last week in gruesome faction, Chainsaw saw Wallace University's newest mascot, Coney, fall victim to the Red Devil. »
Psst! We've got a secret! Ok, it's not that much of a secret that Kristin Dos Santos visited the Scream Queens set in New Orleans this week, but the things she learned (and saw) while she was there definitely are, and she's spilling all (or most) of them over the next few weeks. You want a tour of the set from your new fave, Chad Radwell (Glen Powell)? Done! Want a peek inside the Chanels' closets? You got it! Want to compare theories with Lea Michele, Emma Roberts, and Jamie Lee Curtis? Well, your dreams are about to come true. Of course, there's one secret that it sounds like no one will ever be able to spill: the identity of the »
We've already seen plenty of snaps of the Scream Queen cast hanging out, but when it comes to tight bonds, it's all in the family. That's right, some of the show's star players are actually related to major Hollywood mainstays! We first realized the cast contained crazy connections when Jamie Lee Curtis re-created her mom's iconic scene from Psycho, but it turns out she's not alone. So, when you're done drooling over Glen Powell and the show's other hot guys, keep reading to figure out which of the cast members are descended from industry royalty. »

Can you still hear the eerie theme song playing in the distance? Does Michael Myers' prosthetic William Shatner mask still give you the heebie jeebies? Fresh off the heels of Fox's new Scream Queens series, Fathom Events is drumming up some classic 70's scares with a special one day only re-release of writer-director John Carpenter's career-defining original "Halloween." Jamie Lee Curtis, who reprised her role as Laurie in Steve Miner's "Halloween: H20," will be back in more than 220 theaters across the U.S. as the final girl stock character that made her famous nearly 37 years ago. Carpenter's main trick, besides his use of innovative Pov steadicam shots, was that rather than offer up yet another screaming victim, Laurie fights back. The re-release will also include a special introduction by Carpenter when it bows on October 29th. Tickets for the one day event are currently on sale. »

The horror classic “Halloween” is coming to more than 220 movie theaters around America for one night leading into Halloween weekend, 37 years after the low-budget tale of teenage terror captivated audiences.
Tickets went on sale Wednesday, Sept. 30 for the event, which includes a special introduction of the film by writer and director John Carpenter. Screenings begin at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 29 — two days before Halloween.
“Halloween” told the story of Michael Myers, a six-year-old who brutally murders his sister on a cold Halloween night in 1963. After 15 years in a mental hospital, he returns to his sleepy hometown of Haddonfield, Ill., with a plan for more bloodshed. Michael (played by Nick Castle and Tony Moran) stalks Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis, in her big screen debut) and her friends as they babysit. Donald Pleasance plays the psychiatrist, Dr. Sam Loomis.
The 1978 film debuted Oct. 25, 1978 in Kansas City and slowly spread to theaters across the U. »

Scream Queens fans already know that the TV show is going to have a major horror-movie homage in an upcoming episode, when Jamie Lee Curtis re-creates her mom Janet Leigh's iconic shower scene from Psycho. But it turns out that's not the only love letter to the genre that creator Ryan Murphy has in store. When Abigail Breslin - who plays Chanel #5 on the Fox slasher comedy - stopped by our La studios, we asked if there were any other classic scary movies or moments she'd love to see the show take on. "You know, that's a tough one," she said. "I was gonna say The Shining, but we did do a little homage to The Shining in an episode. So that will be really fun." Breslin wouldn't spill any gory details about exactly what shape that ode to the '70s flick might take, but she did say »

Good TV used to be an oxymoron. For many years, hour long shows were filled with situations that just didn't reflect what the viewing public wanted. Half hour shows weren't much better but at least they were funny. TV was seen as a graveyard. The place that actors went when their careers stalled. No serious director worked in this medium. Ever.
Then Reality TV happened and TV seemed to reach it lowest ebb yet. Whether it was couples searching for "true" love, or people getting $100 (after taxes!) for doing gross and disgusting things, it was one bad show after another. So you had bad episodic TV, bad half-hour TV and just awful Reality TV. Then something interesting happened...Cable TV and a little HBO show called The Sopranos.
Filled with real characters, violence, well written dialogue, and just about everything else that grabs viewers, The Sopranos showed that TV could be better than good, »
Get it, girl! Jamie Lee Curtis is not afraid to strip down in front of the entire Scream Queens cast and give them a little sexy show, all in good fun, of course. While filming a scene in which she comes on to a student's father (played by Kate Hudson's brother, Oliver Hudson) in the pilot episode, she had the whole cast hot and heavy — with laughter. According to a source on set, "When Jamie Lee Curtis was trying to seduce Oliver Hudson on the show… [...] »

1.1 Pilot & 1.2 Hell Week
The zany world of Ryan Murphy is a truly strange place be in. With American Horror Story, he essentially crafted four (soon to be five) different TV shows, and for its run-time, Glee remained a wholesome, relatively innocent confection. When the latter show finished, a space opened up on Murphy's slate and he quickly filled it with Scream Queens.
From its star-spangled cast to the whodunnit aspect to the great Jamie Lee Curtis in a main role, Scream Queens has a lot going for it. Suffice to say there was a weight of expectation heaped upon it but, now that the first two episodes have landed, did it satisfy? The answer to that question isn't a simple yes or no.
We enter the gilded halls of Kappa Kappa Tau, »
Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan co-created Glee and it was a big ratings success for Fox (at least in the first few seasons). Now, the trio's new series for the network, Scream Queens, also be a hit? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned to find out.
A college campus comedy horror TV series, Scream Queens, is set around the Kappa Kappa Tau sorority house. Dressed in the college mascot's Red Devil outfit, a killer is on the loose, and almost everyone has a motive. The cast includes Emma Roberts, Skyler Samuels, Lea Michele, Glen Powell, Diego Boneta, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Oliver Hudson, Nasim Pedrad, Lucien Laviscount, Billie Lourd, and Jamie Lee Curtis.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), »
"If anything, I hope people who are in college that watch this show have a more optimistic take on rushing and being a part of that. At the end of the day, you actually watch all of us work through it and figure it out, as a team."

It was so good, right? If you've been awake for the past what-feels-like-years, you'll already know that we're in a continual state of literally dying over Scream Queens, and now that you've seen it, you can join our obsession in figuring out Who The Red Devil Is. Step one: A fun little round of "Mafia," with all the Sq ladies: Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Jamie Lee Curtis, Keke Palmer, Billie Lourde, Skyler Samuels and Abigail Breslin. In the video above, they all have told you, in character, why their character can Not be the killer. Who do you believe? Press Play Above!! So far, of course, many of the guys also look mighty suspicious: Wes »
Scream Queens, the new Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk (American Horror Story, Glee) horror comedy has already made its two-hour Us debut, and now comes confirmation that the UK premiere won't be too far behind.

"Part black comedy, part slasher flick, the hotly anticipated »
The UK has seen a pretty awesome summer in 2013 compared to recent years. But as brilliant as constant sunshine is a welcome change to the usual rain in June or snow in April, some of us here at Digital Spy can't help but choose autumn as our favourite season of the year. And autumn has arrived today!
Sun is still around, a cool breeze is in the year, trees and falling leaves look like a beautiful painting, and we can start wearing cosy jumpers. So for those who love this time of year, DS has compiled a list of 12 great autumnal movies for the 12 equinox hours to get you in the mood.
While the time-travel elements may be confusing and make little sense, this underrated gem reunites Speed's Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock in a film that really showcases the beauty of autumn throughout.

Fox made both hours of tonight's "Scream Queens" premiere available for critics to review. I made it through the first before deciding it was aggressively not for me. Slasher films (which this whole season is a riff on) are generally not my favorite, and on the whole leaned more towards the end of the Ryan Murphy spectrum that I have little patience for. (In particular, the sheer amount of hateful invective hurled by the Emma Roberts character — which co-creator Ian Brennan described at press tour as "my great joy of life" to write — was exhausting to sit through.) Though I enjoyed Jamie Lee Curtis and laughed at the gag involving Ariana Grande and texting, I knew I wasn't going to want to see more, and moved on. But that's me. Based on the continued ratings for "American Horror Story," Murphy and company continue to have their fans, and I assume »
