“Divorce can be fun,” Lisa Edelstein’s Abby declares at the start of the new Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce trailer — and if her conscious uncoupling from husband Jake involves as much cozy re-coupling as we see in the preview, we can see why she’d think so.
Season 2 of the Bravo drama picks up with self-help author Abby and her estranged hubs trying to give their marriage another go, despite her new gig (which requires her to write about the end of their union) and his big secret (his girlfriend is carrying his kid).

Laverne Cox will step into the platforms of 1975’s iconic Tim Curry as Dr. Frank-n-Furter when production for Fox’s remake of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” begins March 2016 in Toronto. The two-hour telefilm will reintroduce the recently engaged Brad and Janet (originally played by Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon, respectively) to the “sweet transvestite” just before Frank-n-Furter’s latest creation is unveiled: the flaxen-haired Rocky Horror. After a number of years in limbo, the project is finally pushing through, hot on the heels of the cult film’s 40th anniversary. Casting is still underway with Ulrich/Dawson/Kritzer. Fans of “West Wing”–“iZombie” crossover fan fiction can silence their keyboards—CBS has it covered with its new series pickup, “BrainDead.” The comic-inspired drama will follow a young government staffer as she realizes brain-eating aliens are consuming congressmen. Mark Saks Casting is handling the 2016 project that already includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead, »
[Editor's Note: We're bringing some of our columns from Deadly Magazine into Daily Dead as well and today we have a look at our review roundup from Monte he likes to call "Movie Mayhem." Each month, he'll give you the rundown on movies he watched over the last 30 days that you may be interested in checking out. In the first installment on Daily Dead, find out what he thought of Bone Tomahawk, Tales of Halloween, Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, and more...]
Bone Tomahawk: It’s a horror film, but it’s mostly a western. Add Kurt Russell, some cannibals and basically point me in the direction of the movie theater because I’m sold. “Bone Tomahawk” is an impressive film, one of the best of the year so far; a mix of unusual humor, touches of thoroughly effective and satisfying horror, a beautifully rendered western era composition, and stunning performances from an impressive cast. Richard Jenkins, known to horror fans as one of the operators of horror in “The Cabin in the Woods”, is amazing. Mr. Jenkins constructs a character that is both too old to banter with the mindset of those younger than him but also too old to not share whatever wisdom he can conjure up through insufferable anecdotes. Matthew Fox, from televisions “Lost”, plays a prideful and somewhat despicable hired gun. Mr. Fox might be at his best here, »

The role was originated by Tim Curry, who played Frank-n-Furter -- a self-described "sweet transvestite" -- in the Broadway show, then the 1975 movie. According to Deadline, the project had been stalled for a while, but now, with Cox on board, it's gotten the official greenlight, and is set to debut on Fox sometime next year.
Details about this new version of the flick -- which also starred Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, and Meat Loaf -- are being kept under wraps for now, though the project is being described as a "reimagining" of the beloved hit. The original film followed a young couple (Sarandon and Bostwick) who stumble upon the home of the flamboyant, flirtatious mad scientist Dr. Frank-n-Furter, who ensnares the pair in his wacky, »

The Rocky Horror Picture Show just gets better with age. Once a West End smash for Richard O’Brien, its film adaptation became a commercial flop and was destined to wither away in movie purgatory, only to become a cult classic amongst midnight movie lovers. But in 2015 the film has reached legendary status in theatre and film; you only have to do a quick Google search and see what sing-along screenings are happening near you, but now you have the chance to have your own screening in the comfort of your own home with the 40th anniversary edition!
This edition keeps the film in its true form, filled with bright colours, loud music and general 1970s »

Horror omnibuses are frequently a mixed bag. Sometimes they’re not even a bag of tricks, let alone treats, but more like a box of inedible rocks. That, unfortunately, is pretty much the story with “Tales of Halloween,” a collection of 10 macabre miniatures that are disposably diverting at best and execrable at worst, despite the participation of some familiar genre faces and directors. Opened on 12 screens around the country Oct. 16, simultaneous with a VOD/iTunes release, the pic will no doubt make a more lasting impact as junk food for buffs in home formats.
Thinly connected by audio input from Adrienne Barbeau as a sexy-voiced radio DJ, the tales here all take place on All Hallow’s Eve, presumably in the same town. Many unimaginatively revolve around a folk tale that turns out to be horribly true, as the characters discover to their mortal peril. In “Sweet Tooth,” it’s »

To celebrate the recent release of the horror anthology Tales of Halloween (now available on iTunes and all VOD platforms), Daily Dead spoke to the filmmakers behind the movie to discuss the project, their individual contributions and more.
Darren Lynn Bousman exploded onto the horror scene in 2005, taking over the Saw franchise with Saw II and turning the series into a household name at the helm of the first three sequels. He has since balanced studio projects with fiercely independent, more personal cult films like Repo! The Genetic Opera and The Devil’s Carnival. His contribution to Tales of Halloween, “The Night Billy Raised Hell,” stars Barry Bostwick as Satan pulling a series of dark pranks on Halloween night. It’s the lightest thing Bousman has made yet, and also the funniest.
While there has been comedy in some of the other films you’ve made, “The Night Billy Raised »

Tales of Halloween, 2015.
Starring Booboo Stewart, Ben Woolf, Barry Bostwick, Lin Shaye, Adriennne Barbeau, Lisa Marie, Barbara Crampton, Adam Green, John Landis, Robert Rusler, Caroline Williams, Noah Segan, Joe Dante, Stuart Gordon, Mick Garris, Pollyanna McIntosh.
A host of familiar genre faces and directors come together to tell ten tales of terror in this Halloween anthology.
You can forget Halloween being a time when a new Saw movie – or any random gore movie for that matter – would hit the cinema just to keep in the spirit of things for a day or two around All Hallows Eve, because ever since Trick ‘r Treat came along a few years back and defined what a festive Halloween movie should be by creating the macabre autumnal feel that Halloween evokes, »

Tales of Halloween is a horror anthology which sees several up-and-coming horror directors, as well as some already established, take turns in trying the scare the viewer.
Set in a small Us town, we move from house to house witnessing all manner of strange going-ons. The best thing about Tales of Halloween is that there is something for absolutely everyone. The stories feature witches, ghosts, demons, the devil, goblins, serial killers and even alien abductions.
Events start on a high with Sweet Tooth (who will surely become the next urban legend a la Candy man). Its a »

With a cast that includes Barry Bostwick, Cerina Vincent, Adrienne Barbeau and John Landis, Tales of Halloween is a welcome addition to a genre that is the mainstay of the low budget artist. With a bunch of horror tales woven together in a manner that recalls the iconic Creepshow, this movie works because the people behind it are "horror people." They understand what an anthology series needs to have. With halloween around the corner, Tales of Halloween is truly a movie of, for and about its time.
There hasn't been a movie like Tales of Halloween in a long while. This probably explains why it feels so fresh, even though horror films are well worn in the anthology realm. Set in suburban neighborhoods that make Tales of Halloween imminently relatable, this starts off by instantly letting you know it knows what it is doing. In fact, from the moment the title sequence unspools, »
People can often carry out their life’s biggest fantasies when their identities are hidden by a disguise, but they often don’t ponder the effects their actions have on others until they’re forced to face the consequences of their choices themselves. Barry Bostwick appreciated having the opportunity to don extensive and frightening make-up for his role of The Devil in the ‘Night Billy Raised Hell’ segment of the new anthology horror film, ‘Tales of Halloween,’ which opened in theaters and on VOD and iTunes this weekend. The section of the independent movie, which was directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, not only allowed the Golden Globe-winning actor the opportunity to portray an [ Read More ]

Adding to our Tales Of Halloween (out now in limited theaters/VOD)coverage this week, we spoke to director Darren Lynn Bousman, whose “The Night Billy Raised Hell” segment shows the more mischievous side of Halloween. Having previously helmed Saw 2–4, Mother’S Day, The Barrens and other films, Bousman went for more of a comedic route with his segment and he & the rest of The October Society made one hell of an anthology, with Darren’s segment being an absolute blast from start to finish.
When we spoke to Mike (Mendez), he mentioned how the film itself came together, but I’m curious how your involvement specifically happened. Can you speak on joining the project?
It’s funny. It started with Andrew Kasch and at Jumpcut Cafe (Rip), which was pretty much the horror hangout. He asked me “Hey man, would you want to do an anthology?”, but I didn »

An anthology of ten creepy tales set around Halloween night, featuring the likes of candy-munching demons, mischievous imps and a killer pumpkin.
