Here’s the new Viewfinder List, the entertainment industry survey which polls studio executives, producers and creatives for their top 10 short films, commercials and/or music videos. This is similar to The Black List, as the Viewfinder List honors short form content and the directors who made them. The list was created by producer Jeff Schroeder, Aaron Schmidt (Langley Park Pictures) and Patrick Chu (FilmNation). In recent years, some of the shorts have been optioned and some of their directors have gotten jobs — and hey, the attention never hurts. This year’s top vote-getter, Fool’s Day, was directed by Cody Blue Snider, the son of Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider. Here is the website where it is possible to watch the shorts: Related: Viewfinder List 2012 Viewfinder List 2011 Votes: 17 Fool’s Day, directed by Cody Blue Snider Agents: Wme – Roger Green, Solco Schuit Managers: Circle of Confusion – Zach Cox Votes: 15 Noah, »

Handmade sterling silver “Devil Horns” necklace with black diamond fingertips. For the headbanger that has everything. $399.
The horrorfiling cool owner of Destroy the Brain has been kind enough to give me carte blanche when it comes to what gets featured for the Coffin Couture column. Which is great, since I’ve got lots of scary and metal things to share with you. But this week is sort of special since I’m sharing my 2013 Christmas Wish List with you. But not because I’m hoping for the handmade sterling silver Devil Horn necklace above to show up under my tree yes I am, but because I’m thinking many of you will be making last minute revisions to your lists because you had no idea there was such a thing as sterling silver devil horns that only Dio could love more than you.

Trevor Hogg reviews the second instalment which sees Rocket Girl grounded in the past....
"Bodies in motion tend to stay in motion…” Teen future-cop DaYoung Johansson hits 1980s NYC like a meteor. People can't get enough of the Rocket Girl: she's fighting crime, saving citizens, and causing a sensation. But she's also trying to right a wrong in a mystery so deep it could change the future forever. There's a lot more going on here than anyone knows about — and it might be more than the 15-year-old super detective can handle.
Given refuge by a pair of female scientists that she sees as the means to getting access to corporation being investigated by her, DaYoung Johansson is complicating the situation by becoming a major news item. The spontaneous and reckless law enforcement officer cannot avoid helping out people in trouble. Labelled Rocket Girl by the media and public masses, the »
"Today" anchor Matt Lauer stops by "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Wednesday (Nov. 13), where he talks about his Halloween costume -- he was "Baywatch's" Pamela Anderson -- and he and Ellen dress up as "Today's" fourth-hour hosts Hoda and Kathie Lee.
"I knew Carmen Electra was going to be there. I was working out. I didn't want her to show me up in that red suit. So for about a month I was doing crunches and man, does she look fabulous," he adds.
He also shares that before donning the famous red swimsuit, he had to put on a "concealer."
"When they say you'll have to wear a concealer ... it's more appropriate if they described it as a 'testicle vice'," says Lauer. "I get »
Before Matt Lauer put on that iconic Baywatch swimsuit for Today's Halloween special, we had no idea what great legs he had! But, if you ask him, he didn't quite pull off the sexy lifeguard look. "It was supposed to be a tribute to Pamela Anderson," he said on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing Wednesday, Nov. 13. "I look more like Dee Snider with fake boobs!" "It's not a great look," he admitted. But Ellen disagreed, telling him, "You look good! You have great legs." "You look surprisingly good in a swimsuit," she pointed out, to which Matt responded, "Too good, right?" Nonsense! Matt, 55, knew Carmen Electra, a legitimate »

Fans who attended Rock and Shock 2013 all got another killer weekend. There was just one unsettling occurrence we can't shake. When asked if he had gotten word about Season 3 of "Holliston" at a standing room only panel presentation, creator Adam Green said he hadn't.
And that, "Holliston" Nation, is concerning.
To quoth the Green directly when questioned about Season 3, he said, "We don't expect to hear until the end of the year or early next year, but obviously we're holding our breath just like many of you are and hope that we get the good word any day now. You gotta keep in mind that FEARnet was originally created to show horror movies, and “Holliston” was only produced because its president, Peter Block, who is a close friend of everyone on this show and who also produced my movie Frozen, had the foresight to air an original show for their »

Kevin Grevioux recently spoke to Dread Central at New York Comic Con and when it comes to the convention circuit, this is definitely not his first rodeo. Grevioux has been a fan from an early age and was a large presence (literally) as Raze in Underworld and Underworld: Rise of the Lycans.
He’ll also be seen as Dekar in I, Frankenstein, the film version of his graphic novel starring Aaron Eckhart.
DC: My Dad was in radio and I worked on Fangoria Radio for awhile with Dee Snider, and I think both of us have pretty good radio voices. Were you ever in radio at all? You have such a great, commanding voice, you’d be pretty good for it, I think.
Kg: No one ever led me down that path in school. It was always science. For a split second, I thought about broadcast journalism but that wore off after a week. »
