Listen to John Carpenter's New Album of Scores for Movies That Don't Exist

26 January 2015 5:20 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

One of the signature elements of John Carpenter movies is their score. With only a few exceptions, he has typically composed the music for his features himself, including the iconic theme to Halloween and a number of classic synth-heavy soundtracks that have gone on to influence major electronica artists and modern filmmakers. If you love Carpenter's movies, you likely own the soundtracks to those movies. You may even listen to the scores for the later titles even if you're not as big a fan of them. And you will definitely want to pick up Carpenter's latest album of music, none of which was written for a movie at all. This album is titled Lost Themes, which implies that they were intended for movies but were never used. That's not the case, although...

Fox’s Scream Queens Will Include Lea Michele, Ariana Grande, Keke Palmer, Abigail Breslin And Joe Manganiello

19 January 2015 11:20 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox is assembling a remarkably high-profile cast for its upcoming Ryan Murphy anthology series Scream Queens. In addition to previously-cast series leads Emma Roberts and Jamie Lee Curtis, the comedy-horror series will star Lea Michele (Fox’s Glee), Abigail Breslin (Little Miss SunshineZombieland), Keke Palmer (Akeelah and the Bee) and Joe Manganiello (HBO’s True Blood). Meanwhile, Victorious co-star and breakout chanteuse Ariana Grande has landed a recurring role.

Whether all those actors will be singing as well as acting is unclear, but it’s a sure thing that Michele, Palmer and Grande will belt out at least a few numbers. Breslin is a likely candidate for a singing role, too, seeing as she showcased her vocal abilities in the little-seen drama Janie Jones back in 2010 and has also been an occasional member of dream-pop band Stargroves.

The stacked cast is less surprising when you consider the show’s pedigree. »

TV News: Peaks, Scream, Netflix, Flash, Veep

Twin Peaks

The upcoming return of "Twin Peaks" to Showtime has everyone asking who from the original 1990s series is returning. So far the network has only confirmed that Kyle McLachlan will be back as Special Agent Dale Cooper. Then came a rumor early last week that both Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey) and Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer, Maddy Ferguson) would be reprising their roles.

Late last week though, both Sheryl Lee and Dana Ashbook (Bobby Briggs) appeared at a UK festival for "Twin Peaks" lovers and said they've gotten the Ok from David Lynch to reveal that they're both coming back to the show. They didn't confirm but did seem to imply that Sherilyn Fenn is also back. [Source: io9]

Twentieth Century Fox has obtained the rights to John Carpenter‘s 1981 cult-classic “Escape From New York” and intends to remake the film, a spokesperson for the studio told TheWrap Tuesday.

Kurt Russell starred as the iconic one-eyed anti-hero Snake Plissken in the original Dystopian action film, released by Avco Embassy in 1981. Studiocanal owned the rights to the film, which had several suitors, and was won by Fox’s Mike Ireland on the back of the studio’s competitive bid.

13 January 2015 11:30 AM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Jamie Lee Curtis may have starred in "Halloween: Resurrection," but even she can't defend it.toofab's Rachel Hoffman caught up with the classic scream queen at a press junket for her upcoming movie, "Spare Parts," where the actress finally revealed how she really felt about the end of her "Halloween" run.Quick refresher: Curtis launched her movie career with the original "Halloween" in 1978. Twenty years after the original, the veteran actress played Laurie Strode once again in "Halloween H20" -- before being unceremoniously killed off in "Resurrection.""'Halloween: Resurrection was a joke,'" she admitted when we asked about her horror legacy. "The only way I could do 'Halloween: H20' was to agree to come back in a next movie ... because of the way 'Halloween: H20' ends.""I would never have been in that movie," she added, before saying that her character had to die in order to get closure. »

Hear 'Halloween' Director John Carpenter's Ominous New Song 'Night'

12 January 2015 7:48 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

John Carpenter has long been known for creating eerie, engaging soundtracks to match his unsettling and action-packed movies like Halloween and Escape From New York. Recently, he used that approach to making an ominous, stand-alone album, Lost Themes – due out February 3rd – which serves as home to "Night," a chilly, slow-building synth-driven track that recalls his work on his action soundtracks like Assault on Precinct 13 and his Escape movies, which is now streaming.

"It's 'lost themes' in the sense that we were scoring the movies that many people have in their imaginations, »

What I’m Looking Forward to at Sundance 2015

8 January 2015 8:02 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Sundance Film Festival is one of the biggest events in independent film each year. That’s surprising that it’s so successful to a former Salt Lake City resident like myself, because January is literally the worst time to be in Utah each year. The temperatures are always freezing, snow is constant, and the inversion makes the air hard to breathe. Sundance isn’t a film festival you go to, it’s one you survive. But still, despite the weather conditions, each year sees a new crop of films that stand as some of the best of the year. For instance, one of my favorites of 2014, Blue Ruin, played at Sundance last year. Here are some of the films I’m looking forward to catching this year.

Heather’s Favorites of 2014

1 January 2015 10:45 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Starry Eyes

A blood-soaked cautionary tale about the price of fame and sacrificing your own identity in the name of ambition, Starry Eyes is yet another fantastic reminder that the indie genre world is truly the best (and generally only) place fans can find ambitious and challenging horror tales these days. Anchored by a breakout performance by Alex Essoe, Starry Eyes is by far one of the more captivating and unforgettable horror movies I’ve seen this year and I cannot recommend it enough.

Snowpiercer

For Snowpiercer, Bong Joon-ho ventures into the sci-fi realm resulting in an experience that’s relentless, exhilarating, emotionally devastating and wholly unlike anything else released this year. A masterful blending of genres coupled with timeless political allegories, a hint of social satire and a star-studded cast who all deliver tour de force performances. Snowpiercer may not necessarily be the biggest movie that was released this year, »
