Don't drink, Allex.
Allex (Gary Cairns) has a drinking problem. He goes to the bar and has a few then goes home to have a few more. Whiskey, mostly. Since the whiskey is probably more expensive at the bar, why not just save the money and get blackout drunk at home? I guess that's not the point. Anyway, Allex's problem has gone beyond forgetting how to spell his own name. He's gotten to the point where he won't even stop drinking even when a mad scientist (Brad Dourif) makes it so he's murdering strangers, friends, and co-workers during his blackouts. That's pretty bad. But, you know, his wife's died a couple months ago and she was very pretty and now he's got this enormous house in La to maintain all by himself. Of course he turned to drink.

Exclusive: La-based indie Enderby Entertainment has set a new production fund to finance two to four projects annually from various domestic and international partners with budgets of up to $15M. The first to be greenlit is Texas-set thriller The Storm. Nelson McCormick (The Stepfather, Prom Night) is directing from a script by Josh Campbell. Enderby partner Rick Dugdale will produce with Peter Toumasis; Enderby’s Daniel Petrie Jr (Beverly Hills Cop) is executive producing. Slated to shoot later this year, the film takes place in the midst of Texas storm season as a cold-blooded criminal seeks revenge on the small town sheriff who sent him to prison a decade earlier. With the sheriff mortally wounded, only an inexperienced deputy is left to protect the locals who are caught in the crossfire after a tornado rips through the town, cutting it off from the outside world.
“We are excited to start financing new projects at Enderby, »

Ranking any franchise is a personal and difficult process, but the Alien series represents its own challenges. Were you more affected by the intimate shocks of the 1979 original, or the more action-led 1986 sequel? Were you impressed by Alien 3's commitment to its bleak tone, or irked by its soupy darkness?
You're sure to have your own opinions as to how the Alien movies should be ranked, though we'd wager that, like us, you'd place the Alien Vs Predator spin-offs quite far down the list. But then there's Ridley Scott's prequel, Prometheus, a film some might rank far above Jean-Pierre Jeunet's quirky Alien Resurrection, and perhaps even David Fincher's Alien 3.
Accepting, then, that the ranking below is very much down to personal taste, »
Mention The Exorcist in a conversation and most horror fans will declare it the scariest film of all time. While that declaration is well deserved (it’s an absolutely perfect film in every capacity), a film that is quite often overlooked when it comes to the legacy of that film, is the third film in the series, The Exorcist III (1990). While wisely ignoring the events of The Exorcist II: The Heretic (rightfully so, most of us try to act like that one doesn’t exist whatsoever), The Exorcist III did what very few sequels were able to do and it did it with an intense amount of fervor: it rose to the challenge of not only being as good as the original, but in my opinion (and feel free to call bullshit on this, it won’t change my mind), it actual improves on the original in some ways, giving a solid, »
