Spotted: Your Favorite '90s Star in Stranger Things Season 2

Image Source: Netflix You may have noticed that a couple of stars from the '80s and '90s joined Stranger Things season two. First there's Sean Astin, of The Goonies and Rudy fame, as Bob the Brain. The second is Will's doctor at the Department of Energy. Dr. Owens is played by prolific comedian Paul Reiser. This 60-year-old New Yorker got his big break in entertainment in the 1982 Barry Levinson film Diner, which costars Kevin Bacon, Tim Daly, Steve Guttenberg, Mickey Rourke, and Daniel Stern. (It's worth a watch if you ever get a chance.) RelatedHas Stranger Things Already Started Planning Season 3? Here's What We Know After appearing in the first two Beverly Hills Cop films, Reiser landed one of the starring roles on the NBC sitcom My Two Dads opposite Greg Evigan and Staci Keanan.

Whatever Happened to Staci Keanan from My Two Dads?

The age of entertainers in Hollywood run the gamut, from eight to 80 and beyond. And while there is no shortage of child actors, making the transition into adulthood while being able to keep the flame of passion burning is no easy task. We all know stories of child stars who either crashed and burned badly or simply fizzled out never to be heard from again. While Staci Keanan didn’t crash and burn and she did have some success as an adult actress, she has been extremely inconspicuous in since 1998. So, what has this former child phenom been up

Arbitrary Cinema: “I Saw What You Did (And I Know Who You Are!)”

Join me in the confines of my house on the hill, where every week I’ll be sharing with you a seemingly random review of a movie that’s come across my horror-nerd radar in the middle of the night. So come join my on the couch. It may give you some insight into the way our referential minds connect films, it may introduce you to something you never knew existed, or it may give you a rash that requires a 7-day ointment treatment. Or, maybe none of that matters in the end–because this is Arbitrary Cinema..

I Saw What You Did – Bluray Review

William Castle warns you: This Picture Is About Uxoricide!”

Disclaimers like this regularly adorned the posters and lobby cards of master showman William Castle’s films. To boil him down to just “shlock” though, doesn’t give his legacy the due-justice it deserves. Sure, his

Lisa | Blu-Ray Review

Director Gary Sherman is perhaps best remembered for his cult titles Raw Meat (1972) and Dead & Buried (1981), or maybe for his franchise contribution, Poltergeist III (1988). But one of his last theatrical features, Lisa (1990) gets a Blu-ray release this month, which features surprisingly adept performances in what remains a pseudo-ya thriller. Television stars Cheryl Ladd (“Charlie’s Angels”) and Staci Keanan (“Step By Step,” here in her feature debut) play a Los Angeles mother and daughter who get caught up in a serial killer’s web of murder and sex in a film that curiously exchanges thrills for logical character development. Co-written by Karen Clark (who would solely work on television features following this film), the script presents in sobering fashion a female teenager’s yearning to break out into adulthood via dating and sex despite the lack of maturity that only age can bring. Unfortunately, the rather hokey genre elements this

Tgif Turns 25: Looking Back at the Family-Friendly Sitcoms That Defined '90s TV
If you were a child or a parent during the early '90s, there's a good chance that ABC's Tgif lineup graced your TV set. Remember Tgif? A two-hour block of family-friendly comedies that tried to make it seem fun staying in on Friday nights? It officially debuted 25 years ago this month - on Sept. 22, 1989, with a lineup that included Perfect Strangers, Family Matters, Full House and Just the Ten of Us. And notably, it debuted four years before that other landmark '90s TV block, Must See TV. The early promos are a trip, as they're both introducing the

'Revolution' Recap: Reunited and it Feels Kinda Eh
After a good-looking promo, I had really high hopes for the latest episode of Revolution. Then I saw it was called "Mis Dos Padres," a Mexican My Two Dads, if you will, and I was really hopeful the post-apocalyptic versions of Paul Reiser and Greg Evigan were going to sweep us away to a land of focused hope.

I don't mean to beat a dead Patriot's horse, because Stacy Keenan knows I've been saying the same thing week after week. But this one was a perfect example of what is not working this season.

In Honor of "Girl Meets World," Five Other Tgif Spinoffs We Need

Tgif, ABC's storied, family-friendly block of Friday night programming, gave us harmless TV that some would argue has amounted to classic programming: Full House, Perfect Strangers, Hangin' With Mr. Cooper and Sister, Sister all originated in that Friday block, which ran from 1988-2000 (with a resurgence from 2003-5). When I heard that ABC was revamping Boy Meets World in a spinoff series called Girl Meets World, where onetime teens Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) raise their titular teen daughter together, I vroomed my motorcycle in approval like Jonathan Turner. Still, this raised a question: What other Tgif classics deserve a spinoff series?

Here are five options I'd be most psyched to see. Cross your fingers for a Patrick Duffy cameo.

One thing that ruled about Tgif was the constant presence of funny women. On Step By Step, we were gifted by the fresh-faced,

Brad Dourif attends a ‘Death and Cremation’

Actor Brad Dourif is most commonly known for his roles in genre fare such as Exorcist 3, Grim Prairie Tales, and the Child’s Play series. In more recent years Dourif has expanded his repertoire on television with roles in Deadwood and Law & Order, but that hasn’t stopped him returning to the more creepy roles with which he made his name, such as in his latest movie Death and Cremation.

The debut of director Justin Steele, Death and Cremation is from a script by Alecc Bracero and Justin Steele, and stars Dourif along with Jeremy Sumpter (Friday Night Lights), Scott Elrod, Debbon Ayer (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), Daniel Baldwin (Homicide: Life on the Street), and Staci Keenan (My Two Dads, Step by Step) in a story that takes place:

Trailer for Death And Cremation

  • HeyUGuys
In the interests of full disclosure I will admit up front that I am a pretty big fan of Brad Dourif and love his performances in otherwise terrible films.

In addition to some questionable film choices, Dourif has recently done solid work in a number of Werner Herzog films and is probably still picking up pay checks for supplying the voice of Chucky in the Childs Play films.

He recently had a small part in Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call – New Orleans and even managed to stand out there, against the wild eyed crazed performance by Nicholas Cage.

Brad Dourif is now playing a role that was surely made for him, a creepy funeral owner in a new thriller, Death and Cremation.

Death and Cremation is the feature film debut of Justin Steele, who in addition to directing also co-wrote the film. The film was shot on the Red One by cinematographer Akis Konstantakopoulos. Although the plot doesn’t sound that exciting

Theatrical trailer for 'Death and Cremation' starring Brad Dourif.

I simply don't think there is enough Brad Dourif in cinema, or else I am looking in the wrong places. Instantly recognizable, Dourif has shown up in all sorts of genres and notable works so it is good to see him once again, this time in a new horror/thriller Death and Cremation.

In Crest Point, people go about their day-to-day lives with no sense of urgency and standard stereotypes abound. There's the high school bully with the popular girlfriend. The single mother raising her son after her husband has died. The detective who's never cracked a big case. Then there's Stan (Brad Dourif), a single 59 year old recluse who contributes to society by offering cremation services from the basement of his funeral home. Jarod Leary (Jeremy Sumpter), a bullied and fatherless 17-year-old high school outcast doesn't even try to fit in with his high school peers. Dressed in black,

New Teaser Trailer: Brad Dourif in Death and Cremation

Have you decided what you want done with your remains once you croak? The main options really don't sound very appealing -- you could either be insect food six feet under or be burned until you're nothing more than just a pile of ash. I'm for the third alternative -- getting stuffed with candy, strung up, and then bludgeoned by my mourners until said candy bursts through that zany Y-incision. That way ... huh? Oh yeah, sorry! A new teaser trailer for the Brad Dourif vehicle Death and Cremation has hit online, and we've got a peek at it for you!

The flick was directed by Justin Steele and stars Dourif, Jeremy Sumpter, Scott Elrod, Daniel Baldwin, Debbon Ayer, Sam Ingraffia, Carly Craig, and Staci Keanan. Check out the plot crunch, the spooky new teaser, and even the theatrical trailer below.
