Shlocky charms: The crazy rise and 'terrifying' return of 'Leprechaun'

25 August 2014 5:27 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

How did a low budget horror movie about a diminutive Irish monster spawn five sequels, a new reboot, and the career of Jennifer Aniston? EW tracks the deranged history of the Leprechaun franchise.

British actor Warwick Davis says he has “specific” fans—well-wishers who want to discuss just one of the several fantasy franchises in which he has appeared. “People talk about Star Wars, people talk about Harry Potter,” he explains, “and people talk about Leprechaun.”

Alert readers will have noticed that one of these franchises is not like the others. While Star Wars and Harry Potter have raked in billions of dollars, »

Ghostbusters 1 & 2 Blu-ray Special Features, National Ghostbusters Day Announced

21 August 2014 9:11 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“It’s the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.” It may be hard to believe, but it’s already been 30 years since Dr. Ray Stantz thought of happy memories that conjured up the towering, walking marshmallow in 1984′s Ghostbusters. The upcoming anniversary celebration keeps getting bigger, as a National Ghostbusters Day has been announced just a few weeks before the new Blu-rays hit the shelves.

Sony is releasing the Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray on September 16th. If you’re wondering where the love is for the film’s 1989 supernatural sequel, don’t despair: Ghostbusters II is coming to Blu-ray for the first time via a 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray, also set for a September 16th release.

Sigourney Weaver Doesn’t Want To Be An ‘Expendabelle’

21 August 2014 2:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Easily one, if not the most iconic action heroine to grace the silver screen (sorry, Linda), it seems that Sigourney Weaver isn’t in a hurry to return to her action roots. When the first The Expendables film was announced people weren’t overly thrilled with the idea however once they saw how much fun the film was they soon changed their minds. The success led to two sequels and whilst the most recent film struggled at the box office (probably not helped by the family friendly 12A rating) it was still lovely to see all the big action heroes share screen time.

An all-female spin-off was announced a long time ago and is slowly heading for production next year the project has lost one of its most wanted actresses. Sigourney Weaver found herself the figurehead icon for the strong action heroine after James Cameron got his hands on her »

Growing Up Geek: How Aliens Changed My Life

18 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I think your first R-rated movie in a movie theater is almost a rite of passage for any movie geek. At least it was for me. Seeing an R-rated movie was kind of a big deal as a kid, as I was always told I couldn't see them. I was 8 years old when I saw my first R-rated film, and it opened up a floodgate of awesomeness! 

When I first saw the trailer for James Cameron's Aliens I knew I had to see that film. It was the first trailer I ever saw that gave me goosebumps and got me really, genuinely excited about seeing a movie. My heart sank when I found out it was rated R because I didn't think there was any way in hell that my parents were going to let me see it. 

Of course I begged them to let me go! I was »

Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988) review

17 August 2014 8:42 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Grace Fontaine, MoreHorror.com

Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988)

Director: Tony Randel

Writers: Clive Barker (story), Peter Atkins (screenplay)

Starring: Clare Higgins as Julia Cotton

Ashley Laurence as Kirsty Cotton

Kenneth Cranham as Dr. Philip Channard/Channard Cenobite

William Hope as Kyle MacRae

Imogen Boorman as Tiffany

Doug Bradley as Pinhead/Captain Elliot Spencer

Nicholas Vince as Chatterer/Chatterer II

Simon Bamford as Butterball Cenobite

Barbie Wilde as Female Cenobite

Sean Chapman as Frank Cotton

Hellbound: Hellraiser II could have been an unquestionably inferior sequel to the amazing first film if it had been placed into the hands of a director who had a conflicting visionary approach to material that had been strongly established by Clive Barker, but wouldn’t you know it, director Tony Randel delivers one of those few follow ups that manages to stand on its own merits and follow suit to its predecessor.

Happy Birthday 'The Abyss'! Watch 1-Hour Documentary On The Making Of James Cameron's Underwater Thriller

11 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Coming between "Aliens" and "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," James Cameron's "The Abyss" is for better or worse, not as well remembered as either of those films. That said, few films would be, sandwiched inside two game-changing, blockbuster, sci-fi movies. But 25 years ago, on August 9th, Cameron delivered his underwater thriller well before he would make "Titanic," or take a submarine to the Mariana Trench, and while the weekend kept us busy, this making-of documentary might be a good way to kick off your week. Running one hour long, this doc kicks off with a bang, with the director underwater announcing: "I'm James Cameron, and I want to take you into a world of cold and darkness, and unrelenting pressure — the movie business." It then cuts to Cameron sit down interview where he announces that his aspirations: "If I couldn't do when '2001: A Space Odyssey' did for science »

The Nostalgia Files: Sequels of the 1980s

10 August 2014 11:19 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 1980s were a time in which the science fiction and adventure film genres reigned supreme. Films like Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), Ghostbusters (1984), and Back to the Future (1985) are three of strong examples of classic 80s films that expanded their respective universes to further installments. The sequel, while a sometimes surefire way of making money off of an already established and original idea, can at times continue the adventure and prolong the cinematic magic in wonderful ways.

Filmmaker George Lucas popularized the sequel concept in 1980 with a follow-up to 1977’s Star Wars: A New Hope. He had a vision when starting his space opera at episode #4 and The Empire Strikes Back furthered the adventures of Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca, R2-D2, and C3P0. It is thought by many to be far superior to its predecessor. A third installment soon followed and so did a prequel trilogy in 1999. These »

Alien: 35th Anniversary Limited Edition Blu-ray Release Details & Cover Art

8 August 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

They were answering a distress call, but it wouldn’t be long before the crew of the Nostromo would need to send out one of their own. This year marks the 35th anniversary of Ridley Scott’s Alien, and to celebrate the film’s legacy, 20th Century Fox has unveiled eye-grabbing cover art for their Alien: 35th Anniversary Limited Edition Blu-ray release that depicts the Xenomorph and Ridley melding together.

Set for an October 7th release, the Alien: 35th Anniversary Limited Edition Blu-ray features the theatrical cut and the director’s cut, as well as a digital copy and some meticulously detailed cover art that makes it difficult to tell where a spacesuit-clad Ridley begins and where the Alien ends.

Spotlight on the Stars: James Cameron

6 August 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at one of directing’s biggest A-listers of them all. The filmmaker in question? Well, that would be James Cameron, of course. A filmmaker who also does his best to literally change the world, Cameron is pretty special. In many ways, he really is the king of the world, so it’s only appropriate that we take a look at him in this particular article series. In any event, here we go now. Cameron got his start working behind the scenes on low budget exploitation before being given a chance to direct Piranha Part Two: The Spawning. He was fired from that project, but still has a credit. If ever there was an outlier on a resume, it’s that one. From there, he set out to make a true first feature, one that turned out to be none other than The Terminator. »
