‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Teasers Get Extra Creepy

4 September 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy’s stylish and strange anthology series American Horror Story has so far featured many staples of the horror genre – including ghosts, aliens and witches  - but the upcoming fourth season, American Horror Story: Freak Show, will introduce perhaps the most nightmarish creatures ever born from the human imagination: clowns.

One of the most famous (and most horrifying) clowns in the history of horror cinema is Tim Curry’s cheerfully demonic Pennywise from It. Fittingly, in one of the newest teasers for American Horror Story‘s new season, we get to see an imitation of one of the most memorable scenes from it, in which Pennywise opens his mouth to reveal a gaping maw full of nasty teeth. Though it’s not as original as some of the other promos for the show, American Horror Story‘s clown ...

Rosario Dawson talks Canada, Atom Egoyan and her love of Tim Curry

27 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Since her first role at the age of 15 in Larry Clark and Harmony Korine’s KidsRosario Dawson has had an extraordinary career in both mainstream and independent cinema. From dramas to comedies to action films to musicals, her range has proved to be almost boundless, inhabiting tremendously diverse characters with a deftness that’s rarely seen.

In person Dawson comes across as extremely approachable, fiercely intelligent and quick to laugh. It doesn’t hurt at all to learn that she’s a geek at heart, going on at length after the interview about her love of genre cinema, Star Wars and The Rocky Horror Picture Show (with a particularly endearing gush  for the titanic talent that is Tim Curry).

In Cannes to discuss her complex role as both pursuer and pursued in Atom Egoyan’s drama The Captive, Dawson was quick to praise her working with the iconic Canadian director, »

A Gingerclown Coming to Club You With a Funnybone

26 August 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

What's scarier than an evil clown? How about an evil Gingerclown? Or something like that... Anyway, here's a new movie featuring a grease-painted psycho and Tim Curry. That should be enough to keep you reading.

Terrifying nightmares come to life in the thrill ride Gingerclown, arriving on DVD (plus Digital), Digital HD, and Video on Demand November 11 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Including a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, the Gingerclown DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $26.98.

When a group of high school kids break into an abandoned amusement park, they come to find it is overrun by monsters. A house of horrors reminiscent of It, Gingerclown stars Tim Curry (Charlie's Angels), Lance Henriksen (Aliens), Brad Dourif (Halloween), Michael Winslow (Spaceballs), and Sean Young (Ace Ventura: Pet Detective).

I Have Never Seen Stephen King’s ‘It’

20 August 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Quick catch up if you missed the first installment of this series: I’m a guy who missed a lot of generation-defining movies from my youth (though I did not, as many readers apparently suspect, intentionally not watch them as some sort of devious scheme). Now I’m watching them as a 30-year-old in 2014 with no nostalgia for them. It doesn’t make my opinion any more or less valid, but hopefully it’s an interesting one. Or that’s the hope, anyway. This week, I watched Stephen King’s It. I’ve read the book, but not seen the movie. I think I might have seen a brief part of the original airing when I was six (I remembered seeing a black dog, and that was indeed in the movie), but my parents probably didn’t want me watching it because I had gotten freaked out by Pet Sematary not long before.

Clue – With All Three Endings! – Screens Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

20 July 2014 8:05 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“Life after death is as improbable as sex after marriage!”

Clue plays midnights this weekend (July 25th and 26th) at The Tivoli Theater as part of the Reel late at The Tivoli Midnight series.

Way back in 1985, before we were translating literally every board game, video game, or action figure into a movie, there was Clue.

As in the Parker Brothers board game, seven suspects find themselves in a mysterious mansion with the body of someone who has been murdered by one of them. Was it Colonel Mustard (Martin Mull) with the revolver in the conservatory? Or was it Miss Scarlett (Lesley Ann Warren) with the rope in the billiards room?

Could it be both?

Clue was filmed with three possible endings. That’s 321 fewer endings than the board game permits, but two endings more than offered by most movies.

150 random celebrities, painstakingly sorted into Hogwarts houses

8 July 2014 11:42 AM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

On July 8, J.K. Rowling released a short, short story about grown-up Harry Potter and the Sequel She Swore She’d Never Write, and over in the magical land of central Florida, the Harry Potter theme park’s Diagon Alley expansion is entertaining six-hour lines on opening day. So apparently, it’s Harry Potter day, and to celebrate this completely random occasion, I’ve decided to do something equally arbitrary and sort a bunch of celebrities into the four houses of Hogwarts. Why? Art needs no reason.

First, the criteria. The Hogwarts houses are divided based on traits: Slytherins are cunning, »

'The Lion King': 20 Things You Didn't Know About the Disney Classic

14 June 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Sure, you've seen "The Lion King" dozens of times. You own the soundtrack and you've caught the Broadway show. Maybe you even had "Lion King" sheets and went to bed singing "Hakuna Matata."

And what "Lion King" fan doesn't know about the scene where stars supposedly spell out "Sex"? We bet there are still some things you didn't know about the beloved Disney classic, which turns 20 on June 15.

1. When writer Irene Mecchi was hired, she was told that the story pitch was "'Bambi in Africa' meets 'Hamlet,'" so she started calling it "Bamlet."

2. Disney believed that "Pocahontas" (which came out in 1995) would be the bigger, more prestigious film and put all its key animators on it instead. Story artist Brenda Chapman (who went on to direct "Brave" and "The Prince of Egypt") thought the story "wasn't very good" and writer Burny Mattinson declared, "I don't know who is »

12 Cartoons You Definitely Watched In The 90s

11 June 2014 6:37 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Nickelodeon Animation Studios

How many hours a day did you spend watching cartoons when you were a kid? Before school, after school and summer holidays; they even got a look in on Christmas Day. Childhood was cartoon heaven. And they were good for you too. The animated worlds blasting from the box in the corner of the living–room introduced us to narratives and characters, they pumped up our imagination. And they were awesome too.

Kids these days got it rough. Cartoons just ain’t what they used to be. Sure they’ve got Ben Ten, and maybe one more, but they just can’t compete with the cartoon heyday of the 90’s. This list will remind you just how good we had it back then. If you spent any time in front of the TV growing up at all you are bound to have seen these shows: delved into »

How I Fell In Love with Horror Icons Before I knew They Were Horror Icons

6 June 2014 2:13 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Despite being fortunate enough to be raised on a healthy diet of horror, I can’t deny the fact I was born in 1990.  I was born long after our most beloved genre actors got their start and made their mark in horror, and there are plenty of horror icons that I didn’t first see in their iconic roles.  Tony Todd, Bruce Campbell, and Jamie Lee Curtis were three actors I was fortunate enough to see in their career changing roles.  However, I know a good amount of horror icons from films they probably wish they could expunge from their resumes.

Horror Icon: Lance Henriksen

Role I Know: Kerchak from Disney’s Tarzan

Lance Henriksen is without a doubt one of my favorite actors of all time, but the first time I ever saw him in action…I didn’t actually see him. Disney’s Tarzan is my least favorite »

10 Movie Monsters that Terrified Me as a Kid

26 May 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I watched a lot of scary movies when I was a kid. I've always loved the adrenaline rush of being scared. My kids are the same way, so it's fun to watch "family friendly" horror movies with them. Is it bad that I am entertained watching my kids get freaked out watching these kinds of movies? 

I was having a conversation with a friend recently about monsters, characters, and creatures in movies that really, genuinely scared us as kids. From that conversation this top 10 list was born. Read over it and let me know what movie monsters terrified you as a kid!

The Definitive Movie Musicals: 10-1

The end is here – if someone asked you what the most important movie musical of all time was, it would come from this portion of the list. Obviously, it’s all subjective, but it’s difficult to make a case against the influence of these films on our culture and the industry as a whole. So, cue the orchestra and practice your dance moves, because the closing number is here.

Stephen King's It Lands at a New Line Cinema

22 May 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A big screen adaptation of Stephen King's It has been in development for five years. During that time the project was set up at Warner Bros. Now THR is reporting that the production has been moved to New Line Cinema, which is another division of the studio. Apparently, it's rare for something like this to happen. 

New Line is looking to go back to their roots with horror. It was once known as the "House that Freddy Built" because of the success of the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. The report says that horror is now having "a resurgence at the company -- the emphasis is less slashery and more thrills and chills -- as evidenced by last year's hit The Conjuring."

It is one of my favorite novels from King, and I also enjoyed the '90s TV movie with Tim Curry. I want to see a great film adaptation made. »

Stephen King’s ‘It’ Floating To New Line

22 May 2014 1:31 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Warner Bros have been developing a new adaptation of Stephen King’s clowns ‘n coming of age horror novel for a few years now – this appears to be a giant shoe, sorry step, closer with the news that the film has shifted production to the studio’s dedicated horror division. New Line made their name with A Nightmare On Elm Street before branching out into the Rush Hour and Lord Of The Rings franchises. However with The Conjuring and this latest move it seems they are once again becoming a bespoke home for the genre.

You may be familiar with It via the 1990 miniseries directed by Tommy Lee Wallace (Halloween III), featuring a terrifying Tim Curry as Pennywise, the clown who lives in the sewers and lures children to their deaths with the promise they will “float”. That was split into two hefty chunks and the new movie will be »

Two-movie adaptation of Stephen King's It moves to New Line

21 May 2014 10:39 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Stephen King's It is to be split into two films, as Warner Bros movies it under the New Line banner.


There's a bit of corporate rejigging going on here, with one project at the heart of it being the long-mooted big screen take on Stephen King's It. Memorably adapted into a television miniseries starring Tim Curry (that was edited into one feature length VHS release in the UK), the new It was being overseen by Warner Bros. The studio has now moved it into its New Line division however. New Line looks like it might be the new home of the studio's horror output (given New Line's Elm Street roots, there's some sense to that).

Ordinarily, we wouldn't really be interested in a studio shuffling a project from one of its divisions to the other. But we've learned two things from this particular story. Firstly, that Warner Bros is »

Stephen King. Also known as: the world’s leading authority on convincing adults it’s a sterling idea to keep the lights on at night. The prolific horror author has left many devoted readers quaking beneath their blankies – and in front of their screens. It’s no secret that adaptation rights to the his work are snapped up faster than he can churn them out, as his name is a surefire guarantee of a built-in audience. So, it comes as little surprise, what with The Age Of The Remake in its stride, that one of his most popular novels, It, has been earmarked for a reboot.

Today’s news comes from The Hollywood Reporter, who report that the long-gestating project has shifted studios. For the last five years, the film has languished at Warner Bros. – but it shall fester no more now that it’s been allocated to their genre division, »
