  • TMZ
[[tmz:video id="0_2ucp22ws"]] Martin Luther King Jr. might have starred in the most important Super Bowl commercial of the year ... according to Jim Jones, anyway. If you missed it ... Dodge used a 1968 Mlk speech -- about service and community -- for its Ram trucks spot. Using his words to push truck sales rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. But Sunday night outside Craig's in WeHo, Jim had more of a silver linings reaction to the controversy.

Nicolas Cage Is Batshit Insane in Psychedelic Revenge Movie ‘Mandy’ — Sundance 2018 Review

Nicolas Cage Is Batshit Insane in Psychedelic Revenge Movie ‘Mandy’ — Sundance 2018 Review
Even before Nicolas Cage does a line of coke off a shard of broken glass in “Mandy,” the movie is batshit crazy. Panos Cosmatos’ followup to his wacky debut, “Beyond the Black Rainbow,” is another stunning dose of psychedelia and derangement, this one folded into the constraints of a woodsy revenge thriller, but that’s mainly an excuse for Cage to unleash his most psychotic extremes. Cosmatos gives him plenty of opportunities in this hypnotic midnight movie, which veers from astonishing, expressionistic exchanges to gory mayhem without an iota of compromise.

A glimmering font establishes the rural setting as “1983, A.D.,” and it may as well be a forgotten relic of eighties B-movie excess, funneled through Cosmatos’ own creative indulgences. The grainy 16mm imagery, a vibrant mixture of neon hues and shadows set to Johan Johansson’s disorienting score,

Evan Peters Leaves His Cult Followers at Home For a Red Carpet Date Night With Emma Roberts
Emma Roberts and Evan Peters arrived in style for the Critics' Choice Awards in La on Thursday. Emma, who sported new bangs, looked lovely in a sleek white column gown while Evan cleaned up nicely in a black suit and bow tie. The couple have been dating on and off since 2012 and looked sweet as they posed together on the blue carpet - speaking of blue, we kind of miss the sapphire locks Evan had while playing crazed cult leader Kai Anderson on the recent season of American Horror Story. In addition to his role as a modern-day cult leader, Evan also portrayed mentally unstable criminals of the past, including Jim Jones, David Koresh, and Charles Manson. Details are beginning to trickle in about the upcoming eighth season of the FX series, but we have yet to find out if Ryan Murphy mainstays Evan and Emma will be returning for

When It’s Not “Only a Movie”

There are Famous Monsters…and then there are famous monsters.

Both Psycho and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre were inspired by the real-life crimes of mass murderer Ed Gein; The Silence of the Lambs, book and film, incorporated character traits of multiple serial killers in the depiction of Jame Gumb, the psychopath hunted by FBI agent Clarice Starling — with a little help from the imprisoned Hannibal “The Cannibal” Lecter, himself a (still-mysterious) amalgam of stranger-than-fiction monsters of past and present.

While the profoundly disturbing thriller Se7en reeked with authentic nihilism, and films like Dawn of the Dead and Hostel took blood-soaked pains to offer satiric commentaries on the sorry state of humanity, there’s an entire genre of films that bypass the more commercial goals of “escapism” in favor of more directly dramatizing the horrific tales we’ve read about in the newspapers, pored over in paperback, or seen described
