A lot of our favorite genre films are categorized explicitly as horror. Films like Halloween or Friday the 13th fit pretty neatly under the horror heading. However, there are a lot of quality horror titles that are more readily classified as science fiction or thriller than horror. There are myriad reasons why films with obvious horror overtones are marketed and classified as something other than horror: horror pictures often do lower box office number than sci-fi and thriller films; also, horror titles generally appeal to more of a niche audience, so studios appear to favor leveraging the thriller or science fiction elements of a film in order to attempt to interest a larger audience.
In the name of appropriate classification and equitable marketing practices we are spotlighting five films that aren’t always explicitly categorized as horror but we fondly regard as such.
One of the greatest films of its kind, »

Anchor Bay are unleashing Chris W. Freeman and Justin Jones' 'Sorority Party Massacre' onto DVD on 11 February 2014 in the Us and is touting the project as 'a master class in girls, gore, carnage and comedy.' So if you're the kinda guy who likes to leave buying a Valentines gift for his loved one till the last minute and have absolutely no idea about what your partner would actually like then perhaps you could slide this under her nose come that special day? And if she hates it, which she likely will, at least you'll have your very own copy to enjoy. You can check out the new Nsfw trailer form the film which is particularly flesh heavy with lady lumps making appearances all over the place.

Dining out can be dangerous.
So Frank (Tom Selleck) discovered after having dinner with Angelo Gallo (guest star Chazz Palminteri) -- a boyhood friend who happened to be a Mob lawyer -- in Friday's (Nov. 15) "Blue Bloods" episode "Justice Served," written by series co-executive producer Siobhan Byrne O'Connor. The men left the restaurant jovially, but right after Frank's car pulled away, the attorney was felled by two bullets to the back.
Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) was getting a taste of another side of the law by serving jury duty. Young defendant Deshawn Williams (J. Mallory-McCree) was on trial for the murder of a deli cashier, and when the jurors went into deliberation, only one held out for a "not guilty" verdict. Guess who?

Having first premiered on television in 1996, the vampire saga Kindred: The Embraced is now available on DVD in a collectible box set that includes an exclusive edition of The Book of Nod, a letter to fans from series creator John Leekley, the extended pilot episode, audio commentary, deleted scenes and cast interviews. The show follows San Francisco police detective Frank Kohanek (C. Thomas Howell), who discovers that his alleged mobster suspect is actually Julian Luna (Mark Frankel), the undead “Prince of the City” and the leader of the vampire clans that are collectively called The Kindred. During this recent exclusive phone interview with actress Brigid Brannagh, who played Sasha, the sassy teenaged descendent of Julian Luna, talked about how surreal it is to be talking about the TV series again, 17 years later, why she thinks this show has maintained its popularity over the years, what originally attracted her to this role, »

With many people marking Halloween this past weekend, it’s no surprise that we’d see a celeb wear a questionable costume that many of us would find to be offensive. No, we’re not talking about Paris Hilton dressing up as Miley Cyrus (although, ewwwww); rather, we’ve got Dancing With The Stars’ Julianne Hough who made the regrettable decision to attempt to add authenticity to her Orange Is The New Black costume by applying blackface.
On Big Morning Buzz Live, Tamar Braxton remarked that she didn’t necessarily find the getup racist, but we know that there are people who respectfully disagree. Donning blackface is, thankfully, generally something that’s been fazed out of polite society, but occasionally a celeb will commit an act of cultural insensitivity that lands them in hot water. Like Ted Danson, C. Thomas Howell and Billy Crystal before her, Julianne Hough »

Time does not in fact heal all wounds, Aaron Hotchner will discover tonight on Criminal Minds (CBS, 9/8c).
As the hour opens, Hotch is “working long hours, like he always does, and presenting a case when he collapses” in front of his colleagues, Thomas Gibson tells TVLine. The cause: Internal bleeding from the scar tissue of the stabbings he suffered years ago at the hand of The Reaper aka George Foyet.
During surgery, Hotch experiences vivid visions of two important people from his past: his wife Haley (played again by Meredith Monroe), who was a Reaper victims, and Foyet himself (C. Thomas Howell). Here, »

"It may be a little tough for me to watch with Haley and Foyet returning. It will be a while before I do," Gibson tells TVGuide.com. "Plus, I don't know how many people want to see the guy who killed their wife again!"
Bubble shows: Which will survive?
He may not want to, but Hotch will come face-to-face with George "The Reaper" Foyet (C. Thomas Howell) again on Wednesday's episode (9/8c, CBS), along with his late wife Haley (Meredith Monroe), whom, of course, The Reaper killed in the show's 100th episode before Hotch beat him to death. After collapsing at work due to complications ...

Timur Bekmambetov's upcoming horror flick Squirrels has already been dubbed the new Sharknado across social media following the recent release of its trailer.
A new poster has followed today (August 22), featuring a squirrel nibbling on a severed human finger along with the tagline: "Hold onto your nuts".
We know we can't wait to see it, so in anticipation we look back at 12 other films where good animals go bad (or just where very bad ones attack). From bloodthirsty squirrels to giant, mutant rabbits - take a look at your peril below.
The Birds (1963)
Strange seagulls and other creepy winged creatures turn on a beautiful socialite (Tippi Hedren) in a small Northern California town in Alfred Hitchcock's atmospheric thriller, based on a short story by Daphne Du Maurier.

Based on the graphic novel Flashpoint by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert; Barry Allen wakes up in a timeline similar to the one he calls home, but quickly discovers several startling differences. For starters: his mother is alive, Iris his wife is married to someone else, and he is without his abilities. While the Justice League doesn’t exist in this timeline; they are represented by different versions of themselves. In a world where villains are heroes and heroes are villains, the Flash will need to find help from unlikely “heroes” in order to restore the timeline, hopefully before the war between Aquaman and Wonder Woman destroys the world.

Ryuhei Kitamura’s second American film (his first was the Vinnie Jones starrer The Midnight Meat Train), No One Lives harks back to his early work – the Super 8 short Down to Hell and his most famous flick Versus – putting strangers together in a pitched battle against a common enemy.
The film starts out very much along the typical backwoods/hillbilly slant, as a gang of robbers screw up their latest mansion heist and, to make up for their loses, kidnap a couple in a car instead. It looks as though we’re seemingly headed down the torture route, with our villains set to get the information they need from the couple by any means necessary. However Kitamura flips the script and what the robbers, »

The larger and more sweeping the cosmic event, the more the audience needs a character to act as the anchor. This was a lesson Marv Wolfman learned while writing the first such event, Crisis on Infinite Earths. Years later, when he was afforded the opportunity to novelize it, he focused on The Flash as his focal point. Similarly, Geoff Johns built the entire Flashpoint miniseries around Barry Allen and used it to upend the DC Universe and set the stage for the new 52.
While the miniseries was a beautifully drawn, sprawling mess that made little sense whatsoever, the animated adaptation does a better job honing the story and its spinoffs into a tighter, more focused tale. It still doesn’t make a whole heck of a lot of sense but it’s entertaining to watch. Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox is now out on Blu-ray from Warner Home Video and »

The wait is over for those anxious to see how screenwriter Jim Krieg along with director Jay Oliva (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns) and producer James Tucker (Superman: Unbound) have adapted the comic book miniseries Flashpoint by Geoff Johns & Andy Kubert into a DC Universe Animated Original Movie. To give viewers a preview of the unfolding action Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has released a new clip featuring some serious hand-to-hand combat between Wonder Woman and Aquaman as well as a fistful of images.
When time travel allows a past wrong to be righted for Flash and his family, the event’s temporal ripples prove disastrous, creating a fractured, alternate reality where the Justice League never formed, and even Superman is nowhere to be found. Amidst a new world being ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman’s Amazons and Aquaman’s Atlanteans, Flash must team with a grittier, more »
Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox is DC Universe’s feature-length animated adaptation of the DC Comics Flashpoint crossover event of 2011. In the story, The Flash/Barry Allen (Justin Chambers) awakens in an alternate reality, in which he has no powers, there is no such thing as superheroes, and his friends from the Justice League are all skewed and non-heroic versions of themselves.
The closest thing Barry can find to an ally is the alternate version of Batman (Kevin McKidd), who is skeptical at first, but quickly reveals his own reasoning for wanting Barry’s crazy story to be true. However, their plan to restore the timeline to its natural state has many hurdles – including the machinations of the Reverse-Flash (C. Thomas Howell), ...
