Para Elisa: Press Release: "A job at a magnificent house owned by a famous musician seems too good to be true – and it is – in the tension-filled horror film Para Elisa. The acclaimed new Spanish film comes to DVD and VOD on September 1, 2015, from Dark Sky Films.
Desperate for some post-graduation cash, party girl Ana (Ona Casamiquela, Eva) answers a babysitting ad. She arrives for an interview at the elegant home of Diamantina (Luisa Gavasa, Flesh Memories), a former child prodigy pianist who is now an eccentric old woman who collects antique toys and dolls.

A corrupt small-town sheriff is on the hunt for two runaway kids who took his car on a joy ride in Cop Car, an unnervingly funny thriller now available on Digital HD and On Demand, and debuting on Blu-ray and DVD on September 29, 2015, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
Starring Golden Globe-winner Kevin Bacon (Footloose, Mystic River) and directed by Jon Watts (the upcoming Untitled Spiderman Reboot), Cop Car is “A midnight movie blast!” according to Russ Fischer of Slashfilm.
When a pair of 10-year-olds find an abandoned cop car in a field and take it for a joyride, it seems like they could kill themselves at any moment. But things only get worse when the small-town sheriff goes looking for his missing car—and the illicit cargo he left in the trunk—and the kids find themselves at the center of a deadly game of cat and mouse they don’t understand. »

Kevin Bacon has something he wants to show you, and it.s his wiener. The Footloose star has never been shy about baring it all in a movie (Wild Things anyone?), and he recently appeared in a hilarious video that not only spoofs Hollywood.s notorious double standard when it comes to on-screen nudity, but it also makes you think that maybe Kevin Bacon just likes to whip it out. There are some truly great moments in this mock PSA from Mashable that decries gratuitous female nudity in film, not because it.s sexist, but because dudes want to walk around naked, too. Bacon even volunteers to spearhead this male nudity movement and has some ideas for roles he.d like to play. For instance, to the producers of HBO.s Game of Thrones he says: Let me be on the show. Come on. I.ll play a naked wizard »
Better luck next time, Kevin Bacon. His last name may suggest otherwise, but Bacon isn't all that good at competitive eating contests. The Footloose actor, 57, accepted 7-year-old Ethan's challenge to see who could eat the most ice cream in six seconds. The winner would nab bragging rights while the loser would fork over a $6 donation to the Give Kids the World charity. "Ethan here thinks that he can eat more ice cream than me, so he's challenged me to a contest. Why six seconds and [...] »

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, musical artists like Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald, Steely Dan, Toto, Hall and Oates, and dozens of others regularly popped up on each other's records, creating a golden era of smooth-music collaboration.
And 10 years ago (June 26th, 2005), an internet phenomenon was born. In 12 short but memorable episodes — first via the the short-film series Channel 101 and then online — Jd Ryznar, Hunter Stair, Dave Lyons, Lane Farnham and their friends redefined an era and coined a term for the sultry croonings of McDonald, Fagen, et al. »

The actor played lead character Valentine 'Val' McKee in the 1990 original, but did not star in any of its direct-to-video follow-ups or TV spinoff.
Asked which of his past movies would benefit from modern special effects, Bacon told Metro: "Definitely Tremors but part of what's great about that movie is there are next to no digital effects.
"The monsters are done with puppetry, and it's still odd, funny and scary - it's a cool accomplishment.
"I'd love to do something else with Tremors and revisit the character 25 years later."
A fifth direct-to-video movie Tremors 5: Bloodline is due for release later this year, but will also not star Bacon. »
The Seattle International Film Festival kicks off this weekend, celebrating its 41st year. The largest, most highly attended film festival in the U.S., this one is kind of an unwieldy monster. Boasting more than 400 movies, and clocking in at a massive 25 days, it.s a something of a cinematic marathon. It.s a total blast, but when it.s done you seriously need a nap. Over the course of the fest, Siff runs the gamut, screening titles that made a splash at earlier-in-the-year festivals, like Sundance and SXSW, but it also provides an outlet for films big and small from around the globe. There are dozens of world and North American premieres on the schedule, as well as an awesome slate of archival films, a subset of African pictures, and a tribute to Kevin Bacon that includes Footloose, Diner, and his latest thriller, Cop Car. There.s a ton »

This year, the Seattle International Film Festival will screen 450 films from 92 countries, including 49 World premieres, 51 North American premieres and 18 Us premieres.

No one has the time of their lives in “Desert Dancer,” a fact-based drama in which all the dancing is dirty — at least according to Iran’s Islamic “morality police,” the Basij. The principal offender here is Afshin Ghaffarian, a noted Iranian dancer and choreographer who had to practice his craft in secret before defecting to France in 2009, though as with so many “extraordinary” true stories, British director Richard Raymond’s debut feature leaves you craving more truth and less canned inspirationalism. With its heart (but little else) in the right place, this thoroughly generic, long-on-the-shelf Relativity release (which opened in some overseas territories last summer) looks to exit the stage quickly following its April 10 limited bow.
Although dancing, like singing, is not an expressly forbidden activity (or “haram”) under Islamic law, it was still one of the previously permitted personal freedoms banned after the Iranian Revolution of 1979 — a prohibition »

Indiana's coolness took a south bend this week when Gov. Mike Pence signed into law a bill that allows businesses to turn away Lgbt customers on the grounds of "religious freedom." Sort of makes you wish that "not sucking" was a religion. To remind Indiana lawmakers why their nonsense is, well, nonsense, let's take a look at some gay icons and iconography that originated in Indiana. If you're so concerned about protecting the hatred of gay people, why do these folks below rule so much? Adam Lambert, our Precious Moments figurine version of George Michael The wailing "American Idol" runner-up came out in the most decadent way possible: with a Rolling Stone cover story and salacious serpentine imagery. Lambert was raised in Southern California but was born in Indianapolis, which basically makes him a living version of "Saved by the Bell." "Let's Hear It for the Boy" queen Deniece Williams »

It is a momentous day for Sex and the City fans around the world as Sarah Jessica Parker celebrates her 50th birthday. While the role of Carrie Bradshaw made Sarah a fashion icon and a superstar, she has starred in a wide variety of films and television shows over four decades. Parker began her career as a child star on the stage in Annie, and has gone on to become an enduring fixture in pop culture.
Her movie career was launched with supporting roles in '80s teen comedies Footloose and Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, but soon she grew into a leading lady with memorable roles in a string of early 1990s comedies. Parker might be best known for romantic comedies these days, but over the last 30 years she's impressed critics in roles as diverse a mystical witch, an egotistical talkshow host and the embodiment of a single woman of the 2000s. »
Ok, I’m sorry. You probably didn’t come here expecting a Kanye West reference — @KimKierkegaardashian’s genius Twitter feed is more my style — in an Idol recap. But my brain just went from the frying pan into the active volcano after Season 14’s Top 10 performance telecast (a confusing label, given that there were 11 singers on stage all night, with one awaiting the bad news that he or she was the »
Against all odds, there will be no Phil Collins ballad — or any soundtrack cuts from The Bodyguard, Frozen, Titanic and Armageddon — when the American Idol Top 10 (plus one contestant on the brink of elimination) tackle “Songs from the Movies tonight (8/7c on Fox).

Hey Dance fans! The "landmark 20th season" and 10th year of "Dancing with the Stars" has begun, and it already looks like some fierce competition. Many strong and surprising dancers hide among the twelve new contestants, and the weak links are only moderately weak. No Master Ps, Lolo Joneses, or Michael Waltrips here this season, thank goodness. But why do they bother making Derek Hough go through the motions of competing when they're going to pair him up with former Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin? Seems like a shoo-in. But who knows, she could be terrible. It's unlikely, but anything is possible.
Lots of the pairings seem the same as in past seasons though. Tony Dovolani is again placed with an older competitor, while Mark Ballas is with the young one; Derek is with the ringer again, and Val with the surprising unknown talent. Fortunately, Peta is again paired with someone »

Ask almost anyone, and they will tell you their favorite scene in Guardians of the Galaxy was at the end, when Baby Groot dances to 'I Want You Back' by the Jackson 5. One question fans have always wondered, though, is: Why was Baby Groot afraid of Drax, and why did he stop dancing when the Destroyer looked his way? Speaking with Doug Loves Movies, director James Gunn finally provided an answer.
According to Gunn, who is busy prepping Guardians of the Galaxy 2 for release in 2017, there was a deleted scene that explains Drax's disdain for dancing. It also better clarifies the relationship between Groot and Drax. The director says:
"There was actually a scene that we cut from the movie where big Groot was dancing to 'Livin' Thing' by Elo. And it wasn't such an elaborate dance. It was more that he was just moving up and down like this, »
