Jeff Hayes started out by making a fan related website for the cult classic film ‘Sleepaway Camp‘. Thru the site, he was able to contact a number of cast & crew from all the films & conduct exclusive interviews for the site, which eventually led to a reunion at the Fangoria Weekend Of Horrors convention. The reunion itself led to the now in post-producion direct sequel to the original Sleepaway Camp, ‘Return To Sleepaway Camp‘, starring Vincent Pastore, Jonathan Tiersten, Paul DeAngelo & Isaac Hayes (no relation to Jeff).

Ryan Dunn (1977-2011)

20 June 2011 9:17 AM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

As a "Jackass" fan, you lived with the knowledge that you could just wake up one morning to find one of those guys dead. To a certain degree, that was why we loved them. They were willing to put their lives on the line for their art. But you didn't expect to wake to this news; that Ryan Dunn, one of the core members of the "Jackass" troupe, is dead today at the age of 34, not in the midst of some hilarious and ill-advised stunt, but as a result of a massive car crash.

TMZ reports that Dunn and another unidentified passenger were killed early this morning in a car accident in Pennsylvania. It's too early to know the cause of the crash, though in their report, TMZ included a picture Dunn had tweeted a few hours earlier of him and his friends drinking, suggesting that alcohol could have possibly played a role. »

'The Social Network,' 'Eclipse' Lead Our Fictional MTV Movie Awards Killer Soundtrack Nominees

2 June 2011 9:15 AM, PDT | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

The MTV Movie Awards could add a category for Best Soundtrack, but for a show that hands out golden popcorn trophies for Best Scared-As-s**t Performance and Biggest Badass Star, well, that would be so conventional.

That's not to say that a number of the movies being honored on this Sunday night's show didn't have seriously kick-ass soundtracks. Here's a breakdown of some of our favorites among the nominees.

"The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" (Best Movie): The folks behind the "Twilight" franchise have had few missteps in translating the vampire drama to the big screen. One of their biggest successes is in curating killer companion albums and the "Eclipse" lineup is no exception. With strong tracks from Muse, the Bravery, Black Keys, Band of Horses and Cee Lo Green, "Eclipse" is another eclectic, surefire winner.

And on March 22nd, fans can now play the tunes of Cky’s past with the release of B-Sides & Rarities via Mighty Loud Entertainment and Fontana/Universal. The 12-song compilations features unreleased, rare, and long out-of-print tracks from the historic past of the band, dating back to the 90s. The lead single of the album, “Afterworld,” was [...] »
