Not many things besides coffee and staring at Ian Somerhalder's smoldering gaze can perk up our morning. We're cranky and we're not afraid to show it.

10 Celebrities You Forgot Were In Horror Films

6 March 2014 12:30 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

This upcoming month, there are two interesting genre titles playing on Fearnet that you should take note of; 'Eden Lake' and 'Dahmer.' Why? Because they both represent early movies for actors that have proved to be outstanding performers in the arts long before they honed their craft. In the case of 'Eden Lake,' the film is fronted by Michael Fassbender, long before he played Magneto in the 'X-Men' films, stole the show in Quentin Tarantino's 'Inglourious Basterds' & played the android David from 'Prometheus' with such cold, calculated perfection. Also, you can catch 'Dahmer,' the bio pic from director David Jacobson, which stars Jeremy Renner in one of his first cinematic lead roles. Now he's an Avenger in the Marvel Universe! So it got me thinking about other examples of successful stars you may have totally forgotten were in genre films. »

Rainn Wilson Joins The Boy

1 March 2014 6:06 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Since The Office closed its doors in 2013, Rainn Wilson has been steadily turning in supporting performances in independent productions. That run looks set to continue, with news that the actor has joined the cast of The Boy, which began filming in Columbia in February.

The Boy is envisioned as the first part of a film trilogy that will chart the development of a mass murderer named Ted Henley – visiting him at the ages of 9, 14 and 18. In this initial instalment, Ted will be played by Jared Breeze, with David Morse and Mike Vogel – both about to be seen in the mystery thriller, McCanick – also in the cast. Craig Macneill (The Afterlight) is directing from a script he co-wrote with Clay McLeod Chapman.

The origins of this planned trilogy lie in Chapman’s own novel – ‘Miss Corpus’ – published in 2003. That story follows two unconnected strangers on their respective, but particularly disturbing, roadtrips. »

Rainn Wilson, David Morse And More Join Serial Killer Thriller The Boy

26 February 2014 9:19 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When we first reported on the serial killer horror The Boy, Elijah Wood.s genre-based production company SpectreVision snatched up the rights, and it sounded like a project that would get made for zero money with actors who we.ve never heard of. I couldn.t have been more wrong about that, as the thriller has landed a group of familiar faces to star. The Office.s Rainn Wilson will go against type for this film, and he.s joined by veteran dramatic actor David Morse (World War Z), We Are What We Are.s Bill Sage, Under the Dome.s Mike Vogel, and Zuleikha Robinson, who you.ll know from Homeland and Lost. What isn.t clear in the Variety article is whether or not these actors are signing on just for The Boy, or for all three of the proposed films that director Craig Macneill plans to make, »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2010

26 February 2014 2:57 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 27 Feb 2014 - 05:54

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2010, and another 25 overlooked gems...

By 2010, Hollywood’s obsession with 3D movies was in full swing. James Cameron’s Avatar may have given audiences a taste of what the cutting edge of stereoscope could look like, but it has to be said that the movies ushered into cinemas in its wake were a decidedly mixed bunch. Toy Story 3's 3D was extraordinarily effective, yet Clash Of The Titans looked like a blurry mess. How To Train Your Dragon came to life in its flying sequences, but the less said about the horribly murky Last Airbender, the better.

Unless we’re mistaken, none of the movies on this list were shot or released in 3D, and few of them did particularly stellar business. A few got a certain amount of critical acclaim, »
