Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher on Set of Empire Strikes Back - Vintage Photo

25 November 2014 7:28 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Here’s a great vintage photo that I’ve never seen before featuring Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher on the set of The Empire Strikes Back. It was recently revealed by Robert Englund that Hamill had a crush on Fisher during the production of these films, and the two of them look adorably happy in this photo. I have to say that the coolest thing in this photo are the freakin’ awesome Star Wars production winter coats they are wearing! Where in the hell can I get one of those!?

Emily S. Whitten Celebrates Tmnt Season Three!

25 November 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The current Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series continues to be a favorite of mine. It strikes the right balance between being a goofy, fun cartoon about a bunch of lovable characters and addressing more serious and dark themes about power and responsibility. It also does well at adding new ideas, characters, and material while including homages to previous incarnations of Tmnt and staying true to the foundations of the overall series. The art is pretty cool and unique; and of course, the voice talent and creative team are stellar.

The series is now in Season 3 (and already renewed for a fourth season!) and has taken on a slightly different focus, with the Turtles leaving the familiar NYC cityscape for other territory. A short while ago I got to sit down at the Times Square Toys “R” Us (a super-cool store with a Ferris wheel and other nifty things inside »

Fear Clinic Review [Nychff 2014]

14 November 2014 9:44 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Kicking off this year’s New York City Horror Film Festival was Robert Hall’s Fear Clinic, an ambitious nightmarescape about facing your fears and conquering your darkest demons. Everyone’s favorite dreamland killer, Robert Englund, stars as a crazy doctor who forces people to hallucinate whatever terrifies them most while being sealed in a gigantic chamber, yet Englund himself cannot carry such an unbalanced jumble of ideas.

Fear Clinic delivers non-stop terror if your biggest fears include seeing Robert Englund naked, entering an epileptic seizure, and black goo, while true horrors seem to escape Hall’s grasp throughout what seems to be a never-ending experiment. Getting from point A to point B is quite possibly one of the wildest cinematic rides I’ve taken in 2014, but for all the wrong reasons.

As most horror movies start, we meet a scientist named Dr. Andover (Englund) who wants to help the world with his newest invention. »

8 Times Freddy Krueger Wasn’t Played by Robert Englund in the Nightmare on Elm Street Films

12 November 2014 6:52 AM, PST | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

When you hear the name Freddy Krueger, the first thing that comes to mind is most likely another name: Robert Englund.

One of the things that makes Freddy unique in the world of horror villains is that he was always played by Englund, in each and every film of the original Nightmare on Elm Street franchise - and even in Freddy's long awaited cinematic battle with Jason Voorhees. Well, for the most part, at least...

The 30 Best Horror Movies of the Past 30 Years

10 November 2014 11:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The slasher movie, if we'll admit it to ourselves, is about our fears of teen sexuality. Whether you're a teen made nervous by your own hormones or a parent afraid of what trouble those hormones will get your kid into, the slasher-movie villain is your fears made flesh. But with the release 30 years ago this week (November 9, 1984) of Wes Craven's "A Nightmare on Elm Street," the slasher film entered a new dimension.

With the creation of Freddy Krueger (played indelibly by Robert Englund), who could kill teens in their dreams, the slasher villain proved there was no place that was safe, not even the subconscious.

In retrospect, the genre may have peaked with the release of this film; after all, how many other slasher villains since have been anywhere near as memorable? Unlike his predecessors, Jason Voorhees (of the "Friday the 13th" movies) and Michael Myers (of the "Halloween »

30 Years Back: The Glorious Year of 1984

7 November 2014 8:46 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe on the glorious year of 1984….

Whatever you may think of as the golden age of cinema, few can deny that the 80s brought about a fantastic array of classic and cult films. Anyone of a certain age may look back at a period of cinema, from growing up, with misty eyes and great fondness. With the recent 30 year anniversary re-release of Ghostbusters, now seems a good time to take a step back 30 years to 1984. This was a year when bustin made us feel good, when an Austrian cyborg promised to be back, where we turned it up to eleven, waxed on and off, and when Elm street gave us nightmares.

Taking a look back over the films on release that year and it seems that cinema goers were spoilt rotten. Ghostbusters was a blockbuster spectacular. A film which appealed to a broad spectrum. It had the ghosts and ghouls to transfix children, »

How Freddy Krueger Helped Mark Hamill Land his Star Wars Gig

6 November 2014 10:46 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Hollywood is full of all kinds of fun and interesting stories, and I have a bit of trivia here that you may have never heard before. In an interview with Yahoo, Robert Englund, the actor who famously played Freddy Krueger the A Nightmare on Elm Street films, shared the story of how he helped Mark Hamill land the role of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars.

Englund explained that his early career and Hamill's road to Star Wars started out with Englund auditioning for a surfer role in Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now. The actor didn't get the part because he was too old for the role, but Coppola thought he might be right for another part in a film being directed by his good friend George Lucas. So an audition was set up for Englund to audition for the part of Han Solo. He didn't fit the role though »

The Strange Story Of How Mark Hamill Owes His Career To Freddy Krueger

5 November 2014 12:27 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Remember that old SNL sketch with Kevin Spacey where different actors you'd never think of are trying out for iconic roles in Star Wars? If there was a sequence with Spacey acting out the role of Han Solo as played by Robert Englund, it probably would have been played for laughs and everyone would have laughed along with it. Who'd have thought the man who eventually invaded our nightmares as Freddy Krueger in A Nightmare On Elm Street would have ever had a shot at playing a scruffy looking nerf herder? Well you can stop laughing now, because not only did this happen, Mark Hamill would have never gotten his start without it. Yahoo recently interviewed Englund about his iconic career, as part of their ongoing Role Recall series. In the first part of their two-part interview, the actor recalls two parts he tried out for in the early days »

7 creepiest horror movie kids: The Exorcist, The Sixth Sense

5 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Aussie horror The Babadook, which is currently in UK cinemas and reaches the Us next week, is one of the scariest films of the year. Like a lot of the best fear-flicks, much of its ability to terrify comes down to one truly creepy kid.

In director Jennifer Kent's harrowing debut, six-year-old Samuel (Noah Wiseman) discovers a book called Mister Babadook, which just so happens to coincide with creepy occurrences at home that his mother (Essie Davis) blames on Samuel's overactive imagination. If we reveal any more, we'll ruin the film's surprises, but suffice to say that Samuel's behaviour is every bit as unnerving as the monster that could be lurking in his house.

He's not the only movie kid putting us off parenthood for life. Also responsible for giving Digital Spy a severe case of paedophobia (or fear of children) are these terrifying tots...
