The 8 Faces Behind Your Greatest Costumed Fears

Editor’s Note: We’ve spent a while searching for a fitting replacement for Ashe (who we still miss), but we’re elated to welcome David Christopher Bell to our team. He’ll be writing insightful lists for us every Thursday from now until we stop blackmailing him for that thing he did in Florida in 1986. Please give him a warm welcome! It’s funny. After Anthony Perkins first appeared as Norman Bates there was absolutely no going back from it. No matter what role he was put in after Norman, when audiences looked at him all they could see was the shower-interrupting taxidermologist that they feared so deeply. This proved to be a major hindrance in his career, causing him never to land any major role in the industry afterward. Now if only he had worn a mask. After all, if horror films have taught us anything it’s that no matter how effective a performance

Exclusive: Marley Shelton Talks Scream 4 Blu-ray

Exclusive: Marley Shelton Talks Scream 4 Blu-ray
Marley Shelton plays Sheriff Dewey Riley's right-hand deputy Judy Hicks in Wes Craven's reboot of the popular series, available in stores now

Scream 4 is available on Blu-ray and DVD today. While this self-stated 'reboot' of sorts brings the original trio of Sheriff Dewey (David Arquette), Journalist Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox), and eternal victim Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) back to the town of Woodsboro for another mysterious round of "Guess the Killer", it also introduces a whole slew of new characters. What most of these characters have in common is that they eventually succumb to the deadly antics of the now iconic Ghostface killer. What makes Deputy Judy Hicks different is that she lives to see the end of the movie, becoming one of the few people to survive a Scream outing. We recently caught up with actress Marley Shelton, the actress who plays Judy, to discuss this luck of the draw.

We previously posted the Scream 2010: Scream 4 Teaser Trailer.

This alternate opening scene to Scream 4 does not imbue me with any desire to see this film. Its cool seeing Aimee Teegarden on the big screen though.

Arriving just in time for Halloween is director Wes Craven's horror sequel Scream 4, which continues this popular franchise on Blu-ray and DVD October 4th. Ten years have passed, and Sidney Prescott, now a best selling author, returns to the town of Woodsboro to face the masked killer Ghostface in what may or may not be their final confrontation.

We caught up with Wes Craven to talk about this long-awaited home video release, the possibility of more sequels, and the Vespa accident that made him realize he's been doing it right all these years in terms of gory special effects.

Exclusive: Scream 5 Is Happening Says Wes Craven
We just got off the phone with Wes Craven, who is out promoting the Scream 4 Blu-ray and DVD, in stores October 4th. When Scream 4 was coming to theaters last spring, it was rumored to be the beginning of a whole new trilogy. The sequel didn't fare quite as well at the box office as some hoped. This had many speculating that the popular franchise was over, and that the so-called new trilogy would not play out on screens as intended.

Well, Wes Craven tends to think the contrary. He is a firm believer in Scream 5, and says that 'yes', the movie will more than likely get made sometime in the near future.

"Yes. The odds are that there will be (a Scream 5). It is something that Bob Weinstein wants to do. He tends to do what he wants to do. So I am inclined to think that there

Box Office Beatdown: Fast Five Drives Away with $83 Million

Box Office Beatdown: Fast Five Drives Away with $83 Million
Weekend Box Office

Fast Five $83.6 millionRio $14.4 millionMadea's Big Happy Family $10 millionWater for Elephants $9.1 millionProm $5 millionHoodwinked Too! Hood Vs. Evil $4.1 millionSoul Surfer $4.1 millionInsidious $2.8 millionHop $2.2 millionScream 4 $2.1 million

It's been a boffo weekend for Fast Five. This big budget car sequel seems to have welcomed the summer blockbuster season into the box office. It managed to crank out a spectacular $83 million. Add in international takes and it's grossed $165 million. This is particularly impressive because this surprisingly well-reviewed crowd-pleaser has managed to top the previous entry in the series which made $71 million on opening weekend.

In other news, Rich Ross of Disney is no doubt tucking his tail between his legs after his first attempt at creating a new franchise bombed big time. Prom was an utter disaster. They had predicted a $9 million opening but instead the tween film debuted to a very disappointing $5 million. It seems this won't be getting the High School Musical

Ryan Turek Talks Still Screaming

Ryan Turek, Editor-in-Chief of Shock Till You Drop and good chum of ours, has been hard at work. Between his upcoming Hellraiser doc and his Scream documentary, Still Screaming: The Ultimate Scary Movie Retrospective, debuting, this is a gent who hasn’t let any grass grow under his feet.

And we were lucky enough to jabber with him, at great length, about the weird, wild experience of turning the Scream franchise’s story into an engaging feature film, featuring Wes Craven, Neve Campbell, Liev Schreiber, Henry Winkler, Matthew Lillard, Jamie Kennedy, Laurie Metcalf, Parker Posey, Scott Foley and many others.

I think we’ll take the “On:” format for this one. Cool?

It was another winning weekend for the movie industry with box office receipts up an estimated 34% from this time last year making everyone hope the 2011 slump is over. Rain in much of the country no doubt helped encourage moviegoers to buy a ticket and stay indoors.

You can't keep a good bird down evidently. Rio was the champ for the second weekend running. It's $26.5 million haul was enough to beat out Madea's Big Happy Family that opened to a robust $26 million. However, Tyler Perry's sixth cross-dressing film performed under expectations. Many had been projecting a $30 million opening weekend but it wasn't able to pull that off. The last two movies featuring his popular Madea character had opened at $41 million and $30 million.

There's Someone At The Door

Starring Lucy Hale, Shenae Grimes, Neve Campbell and Dane Farwell. Directed by Wes Craven.

By Eric Isaac - April 21, 2011

The saying goes, “There are no more original ideas”. Whether you agree or not, there are still films that push boundaries, tell original stories and, especially in the horror genre, scare the hell out of us. Wes Craven continues his Scream saga by stating the obvious – these films rehash the same story line and really aren’t that scary. Then he presents us with exactly that. "Scream 4" is essentially a remake of the original with a few minor changes. Craven at least has the decency to make fun of the franchise in the first ten minutes of the film but that could be more to his own benefit--it comes off as more of a copout than a clever plot device.

Sidney is back, this time healed of her mental and

Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Limitless: $100m worldwide? Despite yesterday's estimates, Carlos Saldanha's animated 3D feature Rio failed to reach the $40m mark at the North American box office this past weekend, April 15-17. According to actuals found at Box Office Mojo, Rio grossed $39.22m, for a $10,252 per-theater average. Studio estimates, in fact, were inflated across the board, as you can see below.

Wes Craven-Courteney Cox's Scream 4 Major Disappointment, Soul Surfer Sturdy: Box Office

David Arquette, Courteney Cox in Wes Craven's Scream 4 Carlos Saldanha's Rio Biggest Domestic Opening 2011, Tops International Box Office At no. 2 this weekend (April 15-17) in North America, Wes Craven's Scream 4 opened with a highly disappointing $19.27m — about $10m less than expected — as per studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. That translated into an underwhelming $5,833 per theater for the $40m-budgeted horror flick. The extensive Scream 4 cast includes Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Neve Campbell, Hayden Panettiere, Academy Award winner Anna Paquin, Kristen Bell, Emma Roberts (Eric Roberts' daughter, Julia Roberts' niece), Rory Culkin, two-time Academy Award nominee Mary McDonnell, Heather Graham, Adam Brody, Erik Knudsen, Dane Farwell, and Nico Tortorella It should also be noted that among the top twelve films in the Us/Canada, Scream 4 was the only one to be down on Saturday — and not just slightly down; according to studio estimates,

The headline news for box office watchers this weekend is that it's the first to end the slump. Ticket totals had been averaging below the previous year's take most every weekend this year so far. The estimated $139 million haul is well above the same weekend last year which topped out at $119 million.

Rio was the unsurprising big winner at the Us box office this weekend with a $40 million take, right on track with the estimates going into Friday. The tropical bird film earned another $53 million overseas. Add that to its initial $80 million already earned (it had been released in some international markets prior to its Us debut) and the birds have managed to rack up an impressive $168 million so far. Not bad!

Erik Knudsen, Rory Culkin, Marielle Jaffe, Hayden Panettiere, Scream 4 As expected, Carlos Saldanha's animated 3D feature Rio topped the North American box office on Friday, April 15, earning $10.2m according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo.
