10 actors who finally embraced their campiest films

30 June 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Something amazing happened over the weekend: Elizabeth Berkley, who once riled us with caffeine melodrama as Jessie Spano on "Saved by the Bell," embraced a critical part of her past. She voiced support for the cult phenomenon of "Showgirls," her wildly over-the-top 1995 bomb that has become arguably the campiest piece of '90s iconography. She gave a wonderful speech to a rapt La audience, who rigorously salted their French fries in approval.  But not everybody can be as cool as Berkley. (Looking at you, Faye Dunaway.) Here are ten actors who've embraced the silly, dubious, or campiest movies in their filmography.  1. Jane Fonda, "Barbarella" After "Barbarella," Jane Fonda scored seven Oscar nominations, two wins, and a brand new reputation as one of the more strident celebrities of the '70s. It took her awhile to acknowledge the campy fun in "Barbarella," the swingin' sci-fi sex adventure she made her then-husband Roger Vadim, »

'Annie' Star Aileen Quinn Reunites with Costar Tim Curry 33 Years Later

9 June 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Little orphan Annie is all grown up!  There was a touching "Annie" reunion at the Actors Fund's 19th Annual Tony Awards Viewing party on Sunday in Los Angeles. Aileen Quinn (Annie) joined her costar Tim Curry (the evil Rooster Hannigan) at the event, where he was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award. It's been 33 years since the beloved 1982 musical hit the big screen -- and it's been that long since these two have seen each other. "He was so caring and nurturing. I know he's known for these crazy, wild, evil characters, but offscreen, he was so kind to me," Aileen told MovieFone on the red carpet. "He would protect me and hold my hand real tight during stunt work. He would ask, 'Are you nervous?' He was so sweet. I can't wait to give him a big hug." Tim suffered a stroke two years ago, and while his speech has slowed, »

Tim Curry to the 'It' Remake's Pennywise: 'Good Luck'

8 June 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Congrats to Tim Curry, who made a rare public appearance Sunday night in Los Angeles to accept an award. It was one of the first times the beloved "Rocky Horror Picture Show" star has been in the public eye since a 2012 stroke left him in a wheelchair.

The 69-year-old star may not be the same energetic force we remember as "sweet transvestite" Frank-n-Furter, but he told Moviefone he's "very lucky" to be honored by his peers. "It feels amazing. I feel very lucky," he said of accepting his Lifetime Achievement Award from the Actors Fund.

He also wished "good luck" to Will Poulter ("We're the Millers"), who's been cast as the new Pennywise the clown in the upcoming remake of Stephen King's "It," a role Curry played to perfection in the 1990 mini-series. "It's a wonderful part," Curry said of Stephen King's unforgettable evil clown, who terrorizes a group of children. »

Director Cary Fukunaga Departs New Line’s Adaptation of Stephen King’s It

25 May 2015 4:12 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Cary Fukunaga was going to film Pennywise the clown's Derry-based reign of terror this summer, but it's now been revealed that Fukunaga has left the director's chair of New Line's adaptation of Stephen King's It, with principal photography delayed as a result.

TheWrap reports the news of Fukunaga's departure from It, revealing that the True Detective director felt creatively compromised as the film approached the start of filming in mid-June. Production on the It movie is now postponed and it's not certain how soon Fukunaga will be replaced or when production on the project will move forward.

Warner Bros. subsidiary New Line Cinema (which took on the It film last May) recently requested budget cuts on the adaptation of Stephen King's It (initially approved for a $30 million budget) and are strongly considering trimming the project down to one film, which conflicted with Fukunaga and Chase Palmer's ambitious two-movie screenplay adaptation of the epic 1986 novel. »

Thanks, Mom! The Movies Our Mothers Introduced Us To

10 May 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Mother's Day always gets us thinking about everything our mothers have done for us, and for me, that includes introducing me to a lot of great movies. So I asked my fellow editors which movies they wouldn't have found without their moms and which films they watch with their moms. Some of the answers were surprising (The Rocky Horror Picture Show!), and some were more expected: it turns out everyone's mom loves Gone With the Wind. Take a look through our favorite mom movies, and let me know what you always watch with your mom! »

Stanley Film Festival 2015 Photos & Impressions

6 May 2015 4:50 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

As those that were following our Twitter feed and recent features are aware, I was at the Stanley Film Festival last week and it was easily one of the best horror events I've attended. While it's something that you have to experience for yourself, I wanted to give readers details on some of the highlights, including my favorite screenings, Stuart Gordon receiving the Master of Horror award, a Cooties-inspired eating contest, a "marching band from hell," and an immersive horror game that us working together to stop a cult.

What makes the Stanley Film Festival so different from seemingly similar festivals is that there is a great mix of screenings and special events. Sure, you could attend every movie screening during the festival and have a great time, but there's so much more.

The festival kicked off on Thursday night with Cooties as the opening film. Directors Jonathan Milott »

Peaches Christ: A True Icon of Fright

5 May 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Edgy, provocative, and often hilarious, the drag scene is one of the most fascinating forms of entertainment. We now live in a world of demanded political correctness, and while the drag scene has greatly evolved over the last few years, the taboo sensationalism of it all still rings true.  Thanks to the success of Logo’s RuPaul’s Drag Race, drag queens and drag culture have started to shift into the mainstream as something more than just Tootsie or The Rocky Horror Picture Show.  However, you don’t need to be on a reality show competition to make a name for yourself in the drag community, and horror fans are missing out on the scream queen we didn’t know we needed.

Peaches Christ (the stage name for Joshua Grannell) is a drag performer, emcee, filmmaker, and actor.  Peaches currently resides in San Francisco where her Backlash Production Company and »

Will Poulter Sets Sights on Playing Pennywise the Clown in Two-Film Adaptation of Stephen King’s It

4 May 2015 4:37 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In previous films, he's played characters who've elicited laughs from viewers, but soon Will Poulter will likely be sharing his own laugh onscreen as Pennywise the clown in the upcoming two-film adaptation of Stephen King’s It from Warner Bros.' New Line Cinema.

According to Variety, Will Poulter (We're the Millers, The Maze Runner) is in negotiations to play Pennywise in the two-film adaptation of Stephen King's epic 1986 horror novel, It. Pre-production on the first film is currently underway with Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) in the director's chair, working from a screenplay he wrote with Chase Palmer. Filming is expected to begin this summer. Fukunaga is currently only slated to direct the first It film, though both movies will work from the script he wrote with Palmer.

As King fans remember, It was adapted for the screen once before in 1990, as a two-part miniseries that aired on ABC. »

10 Random Horror Movie Questions with Bj Colangelo

30 April 2015 6:36 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

No two horror fans are alike, and our differing tastes is a large part of why horror remains such a successful genre.  Fear is universal, but what exactly inspires that fear varies from person to person.  Over on Halloween Love, journalist John Squires tagged me in a “10 Random Horror Questions” survey that’s been circulating on YouTube.  Getting to know a writer can help you determine who’s opinion you most align with when looking for film recommendations. I challenge the rest of the Icons crew to do the same.

1. What was the first horror movie you remember watching?

My mother has always loved horror movies.  My dad was the type of person that loved to scare other people, but hated being scared. This meant that my mom would often watch horror alone, until they had me.  Thinking that I would just be too young to remember, my mom would »
