After a bombardment of terrible sequels and remakes, the horror movie genre is undergoing something of a renaissance of late with the excellent Babadook and this week's It Follows leading the charge.
Both films are driven by strong performances from up-and-coming female stars (Essie Davis and Maika Monroe), which brings to mind a classic horror movie trope: the Final Girl. Most prevalent in slasher films, the Final Girl is the last character standing who confronts a killer/ghost/demon and lives to tell the tale.
Digital Spy looks back at 7 of our favourite horror movie Final Girls, why they're iconic and what they're up to now...
Many horror fans thought Drew Barrymore would end up being Scream's Final Girl when they first watched Wes Craven's 1996 horror, but the director offed her in the opening moments leaving Neve Campbell's Sidney Prescott to face down Ghostface. »
To Go On Two Legs: Gregory’s Fascinating Recapitulation of a Cinematic Train Wreck
Documentarian David Gregory graduates from an extensive history of shorts with his first feature length achievement, the verbosely titled Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s The Island of Dr. Moreau. However, the title is something of a misnomer, much like another recent examination of a project that never came to fruition with its originating director, Jodorowsky’s Dune. Stanley, who had gained a successful cult following in the early 90s for Hardware (1990) and the Miramax distributed Dust Devil (1992), would engage in the sort of uphill production battle that rivalled historical studio horror stories. Weather, nervous producers, pampered diva personalities, and ultimately, Stanley’s own limitations in reigning in such aggressive setbacks would result in his being fired from the set. However, the strangeness doesn’t stop there. Gregory manages to convey the extremity of a much maligned production, »

Bruce Willis has been filming his next movie, Wake, in the subzero temperatures of Cleveland, Ohio, but there.s one major issue that.s derailing production. No, it.s not the frozen tundra. The real John McClane isn.t afraid of frostbite. It.s the fact that there.s no more money to proceed, and if there.s one thing Bruce Willis appreciates, it.s a paycheck. The Greater Cleveland Film Commission released an official statement (which can be read on Cleveland.com) confirming the news. It said, in part, that Benaroya Pictures is looking to "find the remaining funds" and remedy the situation as quickly as possible. The statement also read that they are "optimistic" that production will resume in "approximately 2-3 weeks." A source close to the production told Deadline that things were headed towards this financial disaster for a while. As the trade notes, calls are currently »

12 Monkeys: Syfy UK, 9pm
Syfy's TV adaptation of Terry Gilliam's cult sci-fi movie comes to the UK.
Joined by comedian Sarah Millican, the trio are looking to offer their own unique insight into some of the most difficult and delicate issues in modern Britain.
As happens to independent films from time to time, the production of John Pogue’s Wake has run out of cash and had to close down production. The film was shooting in Cleveland, one of my old stomping grounds, and it was the local paper, The Plain Dealer, that got the scoop.
If the film gets back on track and starts shooting again it will be an action thriller starring Bruce Willis as “a sociopath who battles a team of mercenaries following his brother’s funeral.” The character sound like the polar opposite kind of action man to Die Hard’s sobbing John McClane. Let it never be said that Bruno doesn’t have range.
