South By Southwest has been full of slow-burn horror this year, creating a pattern of early calms followed by short bursts of pandemic horror – some good, some bad. Film festivals aren’t meant for routines though, they’re meant to be places where a large variety of genre insanity can be found, insanity exactly like Stage Fright. Think The Rocky Horror Picture Show meets Friday the 13th, with ample doses of Dimebag Darrell level shreddage, and you’ve got the formula for a face-melting horror musical ripe with infectious energy and deadly sing-alongs. It’s a rare treat when a horror film can have me smiling from start to finish, but a continually inviting rock opera drenched in blood and littered with guts? That’s an event I’d put on my Sunday best for.

The show titled 'No Trickery! An Evening of Destruction' will take place in May and June, the Mirror reported.

Reynolds added that they want all Guns N' Roses fans across the globe to come see the performance of the iconic band and they are really gearing up for another "epic residency". (Ani) »

Whenever journalists complain about working conditions, the backlash can come swiftly. (For example, "Who cares that you're stuck without adequate food and sleep for a week - you're on the Rihanna plane!") Still, we can't help feeling sorry for the reporters who have shown up in Sochi, Russia, for the 2014 Winter Olympics, only to find that the city was not exactly prepared for their arrival. International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach has maintained that "the Olympic stage is ready for the best winter athletes in the world" but reporters arriving at the Black Sea resort town have observed a shocking lack of amenities: no water, »

Jean-Claude Van Damme is a man known for roundhouse kicking people into oblivion, not making audiences laugh (well, not intentionally), but that doesn’t mean the iconic action star isn’t up for the challenge! Welcome To The Jungle sees Van Damme’s first purely comedic role, as he plays a motivational leader of sorts conducting a big-business team building “vacation” on a remote tropical island. He’s still a badass hero and his martial arts expertise are still called upon, but Van Damme cleverly indicates he’s keen on the satirical joke – unfortunately, he might be the only one. In the words of Guns N’ Roses vocalist Axl Rose, “Welcome to the jungle, we’ve got fun n’ games” – minus most of the “fun n’ games.”
Welcome To The Jungle isn’t your typical office get-together, which our newly stranded castaways are about to find out. Following their guide »

For reasons that are unclear, Guns N’ Roses’ Axl Rose has decided to weigh in on Peppergate, as I’m now calling it, which is better known as the mini-scandal that has erupted since it was revealed that the Red Hot Chili Peppers were not playing live during their guest appearance with Bruno Mars during the Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday. In fact, their instruments weren’t even plugged in. In a guest post to The Hollywood Reporter and Billboard posted Tuesday (4) night, Rose sarcastically posited that maybe they were playing wirelessly, and that maybe, “in the name of science and »
Shakira burst on the scene in late 2001 with her first english-language album Laundry Service, and has been captivating us ever since with her vocal tremor and physics-defying moves. She’s a bottle-blond goddess possessed by the spastic spirit of Jim Carrey.
This Sunday is her 37th birthday, so let’s celebrate her quirkiness and … sometimes challenging lyrics. What’s your favorite Shakira? Is it the #1 smash “Hips Don’t Lie?”, which is the biggest selling single of the 21st century? Her collaborations with Beyonce and Rihanna? Or is it one of these personal favorites?

The official anthem for the 2010 FIFA World Cup is catchy as hell, with hooks galore. It (and the occasional accidental pop-out exposure) is a great reason to celebrate soccer. And who else but Shakira could take Fozzie Bear’s Catch Phrase and turn it into a hit!

Gateway films can take a horror aficionado down roads to a destination that resurrects memories of humble beginnings as a young horror fan. I found “Trick or Treat” on YouTube in its entirety a few weeks back, and nostalgia overpowered me to the point that I had to go down the rabbit hole of horror and hair metal to see how far it goes. “Trick of Treat” seems to be the one that everyone remembers, mainly because of Gene Simmons and Ozzy Osbourne making brief cameos, and Skippy from “Family Ties” sporting long hair, and dropping the “F” word from time to time. Stuff like that is downright unforgettable. »
