It's that time of year -- the radio stations are switching to Christmas music and the television channels are whipping out old and new holiday specials, concerts, movies and other fun treats. The Hallmark Channel is no exception, showing 'round-the-clock Christmas movies and specials until Dec. 25 -- less than a month away!
The ones on tap for Monday, Nov. 26 include:
"Matchmaker Santa" (6 p.m. Et): A young baker (Lacey Chabert) discovers love while stranded at Christmastime. Also starring "Brady Bunch" mom Florence Henderson and "Cheers" mailman John Ratzenberger. »
Thanks to classic nineties sci-fi Species, in which Natasha Henstridge played a beautiful alien-human hybrid out to reproduce by enticing and sleeping with men, the bar for movies about sexy murderous alien seductresses has been set pretty high. Ready to place a new offering on the table, however, is director Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast) in his first feature film since 2004′s uncomfortable mystery drama Birth.
Under the Skin stars Scarlett Johansson (The Avengers) as a very different kind of Black Widow: an alien temptress who picks up male hitchhikers on the remote roads of Scotland and lures them to their deaths with the promise of sex. An interesting but confusing teaser trailer arrived a few weeks ago and an extended trailer has now joined it, showing a little more (though not much) of Under the Skin‘s plot and protagonist.

“Do you like sex with death?” “Yeah, so fuck off and die.”-Return Of The Living Dead
From the earliest horror films, sex has always played a major role in the success and intrigue of the bastard genre of cinema. Whether it’s the sexual ambiguity of Count Dracula or the screaming topless women of the slasher subgenre, sex and horror go together like ramalamalama ka dinga da dinga dong. In some instances, sex is thrown into a horror film because it feels like it’s expected to be there, and therefore, feels a bit gratuitous. Sadly, sex is sometimes also used as a vehicle to expose the despicable and monstrous side of humanity. However, when sex is combined with horror successfully, it creates an entirely new experience for fans of the genre. With our adrenaline already skyrocketed from a sense of fear, adding a sense of arousal only sweetens the view. »

On the latest Lifetime original movie offering, Natasha Henstridge is her "Sister's Nightmare," playing a "criminally insane" woman named Cassidy who shot and killed her husband and almost drowned their infant over a decade ago.
Spoiler alert, in case you haven't watched it yet.
Kelly Rutherford is her younger sister Jane, a cop who has raised baby Emily as her own. But now Cassidy is out of the mental hospital and wants her daughter back! Dun dun dun. Except not really, because it's the slowest burn everrrrrrr. Over halfway through and the craziest thing Cassidy does is sneak into Emily's room in the middle of the night and be nice to her. Oh, the horror.
In fact, by the end, Rutherford is so annoying that we're rooting for Henstridge to kidnap her daughter and run for it. Maybe it's all a big twist -- Jane is actually Cassidy's nightmare for »
A distress signal from deep space. A blue-collar crew of astronauts discover a derelict space craft. A star beast of unknown origin chases them through dark pipe-lined corridors until there's only a few (if one) left. After the blockbuster success of Ridley Scott's sci-fi tinged haunted house movie "Alien" busted some blocks in 1979, it was only a matter of time before the low-budget copycats followed suit.
Not only were many of these knockoff movies kinda cool, but they turned out to be a proving ground of ideas and talent for future entries in the "Alien" franchise, including "Aliens," "Alien 3" and "Prometheus" … for realsimo. The first "Alien" was in itself a shameless "homage" to classic B-movies "Planet of the Vampires" and "It! The Terror from Beyond Space," so it's only fair that flicks like this week's Vin Diesel monster mash "Riddick" should take a page or seven from its playbook. »

The first teaser trailer has arrived online for Under The Skin, Jonathan Glazer’s sci-fi drama starring Scarlett Johansson as a distinctly sexy alien invader. The premise of the film sets Johansson’s character up as a voracious predator, who uses her sexualised appearance to ensnare her prey. If that all sounds a little Natasha Henstridge in Species, the first trailer suggests that this will be a different beast entirely, with a pronounced streak of surrealism very much at the fore. Take a look at the new trailer, below… ...

If you’re a random male pedestrian and a gal who looks like Scarlett Johansson ever pulls up and offers to take you to her place for a quickie, the logical thing to do would be run like hell, since this could only be either a sting or a sign of the apocalypse, no matter how good looking a fellow you are. But lust trumps logic as Johansson lures a bevy of bros to their doom in “Under the Skin,” which screened Friday night at the Telluride Film Festival.Director Jonathan Glazer, previously best known for "Sexy Beast," definitely has a seductive monster in ScareJo—er, ScarJo—this time. This is no Aileen Wuornos Goes Glam story, though, with the "2001"-style imagery at the start being a tip-off that Johansson is not your garden-variety female serial killer but rather an actual alien abductor in butt-hugging stonewashed jeans. If this sounds »

They may not have ended up together at the end of "Gossip Girl," but Lily van der Woodsen and Rufus Humphrey may get another shot at love.
No, we're not talking the rumored "Gossip Girl" movie -- as far as we know, that's still just a rumor. But Lifetime is staging an onscreen reunion between Kelly Rutherford and Matthew Settle, the two actors behind the only adult on-and-off romance on The CW's teen soap drama.
Lifetime's newest original movie "A Sister's Nightmare," also starring Petyon List and Natasha Henstridge, just cast Rutherford and Settle. The movie is about an intense sibling rivalry and dark family secrets.
Police officer Jane Rydert's (Rutherford) life goes into a tailspin when her sister Cassidy (Henstridge) is discharged from the state hospital for the criminally insane, and shows up at her door needing a place to stay. Jane never told her teenage daughter that she »
Attention, Upper East Siders: Rufus and Lily are back in town.

Lifetime has described "A Sister's Nightmare" as centering on "an intense sibling rivalry and dark family secrets. After fifteen years of hospitalization for being criminally insane, Cassidy (Henstridge) is finally released and reenters the life of her younger sister, Jane (Rutherford). But when a dangerous rivalry and past familiarities return, Jane is unable to prove her sister is still harmful to society and takes matters into her own hands to protect her family."

Before the doors of the Irving Convention Center even opened on Saturday, it was very evident that Dallas Comic-Con is no longer just a local Texas event. Just by reading the convention's Facebook page, you could see people sharing their stories of how far they had traveled to meet their favorite celebrities. Many were from out of state or distant corners of the Lone Star State.
Let's just get the negative out of the way so we can get to the good points. Yes, there were a few cancellations. One was felt more than the others. The first day of the event, Nathan Fillion's representatives contacted Comic-Con management and told them the actor wouldn't be attending because of health reasons.
Since the Comic-Con personnel can't just say it out of tact and professional reason, let me do the talking for them. Anyone who drives or flies thousands of miles »
