Songs on Screen: Strange Awakenings with “I Still Believe” from "The Lost Boys"

24 June 2015 6:17 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Songs On Screen: All week HitFix will be featuring tributes by writers to their favorite musical moments from TV and film. Check out all the entries in the series here.  I saw this movie about ten thousand times when I was a teenager. Maybe more. "Lost Boys" is a classic for we of a certain age. It’s vampire movie where comic books and witty banter play a sizable role, which sounds like all movies now but was an aberration in 1987. This movie has it all. Chinese Food. Cranky Grandpas. Music by Inxs. Long before the dulcet tones of Kiefer Sutherland’s velvety voice made us swoon with “Who are you working for!” he regaled us with, “They’re only noodles, Michael.”   The time I had this movie committed to memory has passed, but I will never forget when the Emerson brothers, new arrivals to the sleepy coastal town of Santa Carla, »

Interview with Travis Stevens: Revitalizing the Independent Horror Scene One Film at a Time

5 June 2015 2:19 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

While the name Travis Stevens may not be familiar to horror fans, the films he’s shepherded over the last several years should: A Horrible Way to Die, Little Deaths, The Aggression Scale, The Thompsons, Big Ass Spider!, Cheap Thrills, Jodorowsky’s Dune, Starry Eyes, and the upcoming feature, We Are Still Here, which debuted at the 2015 South by Southwest Film Festival.

As a producer over a relatively short amount of time, Stevens has made a huge impact on the horror genre and still works tirelessly to bring engaging and unique independent projects to life. We recently chatted with Stevens about his background, his approach to producing, the state of independent horror and the one thing he recommends to aspiring filmmakers.

Thanks for speaking with me, Travis. You have done such an amazing job throughout your career finding interesting and thought-provoking films to work on that also feel different from each other. »

Hadley Freeman interview: 80s movies, Eddie Murphy, Lucas

3 June 2015 3:50 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Heathers, John Hughes, Back To The Future, Nora Ephron, Coming To America and more, as we chat 80s movies with Hadley Freeman...

Hadley Freeman's latest book has harnessed her love of 80s movies, and gone into detail about just why they work so well. Entitled Life Moves Pretty Fast, you won't be surprised to hear that Ferris Bueller's Day Off features in there. But then so does Dirty Dancing, Top Gun, Ghostbusters, Back To The Future and Eddie Murphy.

So what makes 80s movies so special? That seemed a logical place to start, as we caught up with Hadley for a chat...

Can I start by throwing a paraphrased movie quote at you? That line in The Truman Show about accepting the reality with which we're presented? At what point did you come to accept and realise that the movies of the 80s were so special to you? As you grew up with them, »

'An Open Secret' secures Us release

29 April 2015 3:50 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Esponda Productions, Vesuvio Entertainment, Rocky Mountain Pictures and Disarming Films announced that Amy Berg’s documentary about child sexual abuse in Hollywood will get a limited Us release.

An Open Secret will play at least 20 cities starting on June 5 and receives its international market premiere screening in Cannes on May 19.

The film premiered at the New York Doc Fest last November and interviews people who as children were exposed to sexual predators in the film industry.

Executive producers Gabe Hoffman and Matthew Valentinas were inspired to research the subject after learning of abuse victim Cory Haim’s death from a drug overdose.

“This is clearly one of the most controversial and most important films of 2015 and sheds light on one of the dirtiest secrets in Hollywood,” said Greg H Sims, CEO of Vesuvio Entertainment, which is distributing the film in partnership with Rocky Mountain Pictures. 

Randy Slaughter of Rocky Mountain Pictures said: “We’re pleased to bring »

The Last Horror Blog: Our Favorite Werewolf Movies, From 'Ginger Snaps' to 'Wolfcop'

19 March 2015 8:30 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Wolfcop, the highly entertaining new horror comedy from filmmaker Lowell Dean, has just slashed its way on to DVD – so I figured this was the perfect time to highlight some of the other great lycanthrope films out there. If you’re ready to bark at the moon, or just like finding opportunities to drop the word “lycanthropy” into casual conversation, then these films are guaranteed to please.   Silver Bullet Corey Haim and Gary Busey headline this 1985 feature, which was based on a Stephen King novella titled Cycle of the Werewolf. The small town of Tarker’s Mills has a murderer walking amongst them in King’s tale, but the killer isn’t a man – it’s a vicious werewolf with a taste for people. Haim plays a paraplegic...

Corey Feldman -- This One Goes Out to Corey Haim (Audio)

6 March 2015 3:00 AM, PST | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

It took him 5 years, but Corey Feldman is finally ready to honor his Bff Corey Haim in song -- recording a tribute to him to mark the upcoming anniversary of his death. The song is called "Remember 222" and will be released March 10th. Haim died in 2010 from pneumonia and a bad heart. The title refers to Haim's favorite number -- which, as Feldman has pointed out for years ... is eerily similar to his own fave digits ... 22. Interestingly, »

Silver Bullet (1985) review

4 February 2015 1:06 AM, PST | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Chris Wright

Silver Bullet (1985)

Directed By: Daniel Attias

Written By: Stephen King

Starring: Gary Busey (Uncle Red), Everett McGill (Reverend Lowe), Corey Haim (Mary Coslaw), Megan Follows (Jane Coslaw), Terry O’Quinn (Sheriff Haller), Robin Groves (Nan Coslaw), Leon Russom (Bob Coslaw), Bill Smitrovich (Andy)

Silver Bullet”, based on a Stephen King novella “Cycle of the Werewolf”, is a worthy entry in the werewolf sub genre of horror. A good chunk of werewolf films are rather predictable in having the werewolves being the complete center of attention from start to finish but “Silver Bullet” takes the opposite route. The film has a lot of suspense building up to the eventual reveal, which I liked. I don’t know why I hadn’t watched this film before until now but I am glad I did.

The film takes place in a very small town that is just »
