Seth Green Talks About What Got Cut to Make Can’t Hardly Wait PG-13

15 May 2015 11:01 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It's been nearly 20 years (!) since Can't Hardly Wait was part of the late-’90s wave of teen comedies. But the film was originally supposed to be a raunchy R-rated flick, which was later downgraded to PG-13 and set at a high-school graduation party at the behest of Sony (this was before American Pie, you must remember). We caught up with one of the film's many stars, Seth Green, who played virginal wannabe-rapper Kenny Fisher, at the Turner upfront to chat about what eventually got cut. We need a director’s cut!I rewatched Can’t Hardly Wait recently. I understand there was a scene with Amber Benson that was taken out? Oh yeah, there was like 40 minutes of that movie that was cut out. The movie was originally an R-rated movie. Sony, in the midst of putting it out — it was at the very beginning of the reemergence of the »

17 traumatic TV deaths that we're still in denial about

9 May 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

So, it's now been a couple of weeks since The Incident took place on Grey's Anatomy, and now that the dust has settled we're looking back on the other small-screen deaths that have left us similarly destroyed.

Below, we've listed 17 of the TV demises we're still not over. In no particular order. They all made us sad. We're not crying, it's just raining. On our faces.

Warning: Just in case this doesn't go without saying, spoilers galore lie ahead. Some of these shows are finished, some are still on, but all of the episodes referenced aired in 2014 or earlier.

1. Joyce Summers (Buffy)

Spoiler: Joss Whedon is going to show up a few times on this list. The man has a self-confessed cruel streak when it comes to offing beloved characters, but the death of Buffy Summers' mother is in a different league even by Whedon standards.

‘Midian Unmade: Tales of Clive Barker’s Nightbreed’ Hardcover Sequel Anthology

6 May 2015 10:55 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Many monsters came to Midian seeking shelter from the hate of humanity. That hate brought death and destruction to the supposedly safe haven in the 1988 novel, Cabal, and its film adaptation, Nightbreed (1990), leaving viewers to wonder what Clive Barker's eclectic cast of characters would do next. On July 28th, Tor Books will release a highly anticipated 300+ page answer (in both hardcover and Kindle) to that question with the Nightbreed sequel anthology, Midian Unmade: Tales of Clive Barker's Nightbreed. Featuring an introduction by Barker and short stories from a wide range of great writers (including David J. SchowC. Robert Cargill, and Weston Ochse), this Nightbreed collection explores what happened after the last page was turned and the end credits rolled in Barker's brilliant world of the lost and lonely.

Synopsis: "An all-original horror anthology set in the world of Clive Barker's cult film masterpiece, Nightbreed, and including stories by Seanan McGuire, »

Slamdance 2015: Festival Director Anna Germanidi

10 February 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Last spring Slamdance announced that co-founder Peter Baxter was turning over the reins of Festival Director to Anna Germanidi, who had served as festival manager since 2012. Baxter remains the president of the organization and also has oversight on Slamdance's distribution.

She then joined Slamdance as a submissions and programming intern, and within six months became the programming and filmmaker relations manager.

Germanidi's diverse background, which includes production on several short films (Kiosk, Téa, To Be Discontinued), bolsters her new position, with new additions to this year's Slamdance. This year the film festival featured "Fearless Filmmaking: Art on Your Own Terms," a block of micro-shorts that were shot on Digital Bolex's D16 cameras. The »
