Die Laughing: 50+ of the Most Hilarious Horror Movies

28 October 2011 6:34 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

It's that time of year again - pumpkins line porches, bags of candy fill the drugstore shelves, and children everywhere are encouraged by their parents to ring the bells of strangers' houses and demand handouts.

Halloween season also is the one time of year where it's pretty much impossible to avoid horror movies. If you're a horror fan like I am, there's really no change in your viewing habits because you were probably going to be watching Suspiria and The Abominable Dr. Phibes tonight anyway. But if you're only a seasonal horror fan, it can be a bit daunting to navigate the sea of bloody entertainments that flood the airwaves this time of year.

To that end, we've put together a list of over 50 horror movies that are as funny as they are scary (whether intentionally or by accident). Hopefully with the list below as a reference, even the most »

The ultimate Michael Biehn interview: The Terminator, James Cameron, Aliens and more

30 August 2011 7:37 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In the first part of our extensive interview with actor Michael Biehn, we got to chat about his 1980s work in The Terminator, Aliens, and much, much more…

Anyone who’s familiar with my writing will know that I have a great love of under-appreciated actors. I’ll use any opportunity available to praise their work, and draw attention to films and performances that sometimes pass by relatively unnoticed.

Michael Biehn, for my money, is the most under-appreciated actor of them all. I’m sure most of our readers hold him in high regard, since he’s starred in several of the greatest films ever made, but to the general public, he’s less widely recognised.

Best known for playing father of the future, Kyle Reese, in The Terminator and D Hicks in Aliens (I’m well aware what the initial stands for, but I was crushed when the Special »

Exclusive: Why Michael Biehn is unlikely to make Terminator 5

3 May 2011 9:05 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Biehn has been linked with an appearance in Terminator 5. But we suspect the actor himself might not be keen. Here's why...

Recently, we had the tremendous opportunity to have a rather lengthy and incredibly in-depth one-on-one chat to screen legend, Michael Biehn, spanning his entire career from The Fan, back in 1981, to his forthcoming directorial debut, The Victim (which I hasten to add he's very excited about).

During the course of the interview, the topic of the Terminator films inevitably arose, with Biehn being kind enough to humour us with his audition story through to his scepticism about initially becoming part of the first film. He was extremely frank in conversation, and as you'll see below, has taken no involvement in the last two Terminator films at all, through a sheer lack of interest.

Biehn has always maintained the same stance over the years towards the sequels, though, »

Lauren Bacall and the 1997 Academy Awards

19 February 2011 10:24 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Lauren Bacall (top); Bacall, Mimi Rogers in Barbra Streisand's The Mirror Has Two Faces (bottom) In her 2005 autobiography By Myself and Then Some, Lauren Bacall's updated version of her 1978 bestseller By Myself, the two-time Tony Award-winning actress (for Applause in 1970 and Woman of the Year in 1981) candidly discusses the ballyhoo surrounding her first — and to date only — Academy Award nomination for Barbra Streisand's 1996 romantic comedy-melodrama The Mirror Has Two Faces. Apart from a few film career lulls, Bacall had been working steadily in front of the camera since her film début in Howard Hawks' 1945 adventure-drama To Have and Have Not. But whether as mere on-screen decoration (Key Largo, Bright Leaf, Young Man with a Horn) or as a reliable leading lady (How to Marry a Millionaire, Woman's World, The Fan), she had been invariably ignored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Lauren Bacall: Oscar Veterans 1996

18 February 2011 5:19 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Lauren Bacall, Mimi Rogers in Barbra Streisand's The Mirror Has Two Faces Julie Christie, Judi Dench, Peter Fonda: Oscar Veterans 1997 Lauren Bacall Lauren Bacall was nominated as Best Supporting Actress for her performance as Barbra Streisand's domineering mother in the Streisand-directed melodrama The Mirror Has Two Faces. In one of the biggest upsets in Oscar history, Bacall lost to Juliette Binoche, who was one of the leads in Anthony Minghella's The English Patient. The Mirror Has Two Faces earned Bacall her first Oscar nomination. She began her film career in Howard Hawks' To Have and Have Not in 1945. Among Bacall's other film credits are Hawks' The Big Sleep (1946), John Huston's Key Largo (1948), Jean Negulesco's How to Marry a Millionaire (1953), and Ed Bianchi's The Fan (1981). »
