Stupid movies are one thing; stupid movies that are self-aware are something else and they don’t come more stupid or self-aware than the Sharknado movies. Inexplicably, the first Sharknado proved to be something of a cult hit, brought about by the fact that so many people latched onto the dumb premise and took it for the low-budget cable TV nonsense that it was, and then the inevitable happened – the sequel. Sharknado 2: The Next One followed closely behind and somebody with responsibility noticed that social media was taking the bait and that people were tuning in so, much like a novelty charity hit single, »

Already thinking about what you're going to do on Halloween? Though it may be contrary to popular belief, Halloween is one of the best nights of the year to stay in. Why? Because there are loads of scary movies and TV marathons on.

We've already started gathering the listings for Oct. 31, so take a look, and mark down the movies and shows you don't want to miss.

If there are two people who desperately want The Goonies 2 to happen, it's original stars Sean Astin and Corey Feldman. While their other co-stars haven't really brought the movie up in the press too much since director Richard Donner announced it was happening way back in early 2014, these two have been most vocal about returning to the Astoria Goondocks. But it's looking more and more like The Goonies 2 will actually be a full-on reboot. And it's possible that none of the original cast will return. Jeff Cohen, who played Chunk in the 1985 Amblin classic, has already confirmed he's sitting out the sequel. Now, Sean Astin tells that the rest of the cast may not be back. About why we haven't seen The Goonies 2 yet, the actor had this to say.
They have lots of ideas and they've been developing in different ways, but I just don't think »
Bindi Irwin is celebrating her first Halloween ever in style! Believe it or not, the 17-year-old Aussie will be taking part in the spooky holiday for the first time, thanks to Dancing With the Stars' annual Halloween-themed episode, and E!

Bindi and Derek Hough will be dancing the Argentine Tango to "Cry Little Sister" from The Lost Boys. Kind of funny considering Bindi told us Derek is her "big brother," right?! Bindi and Derek will be performing a second routine during tonight's episode, a team »
Horror fans have been dying for a good HD release of Tales From The Crypt Presents: Demon Knight for quite some time, and thanks to gang at Scream Factory, we not only have just that, but a special edition Bluray of release of Bordello Of Blood as well. Both releases feature brand new commentaries, as well as in depth docs detailing the making of and in the case of the latter Tales film, the troubles of everything from casting to diva attitudes. We had the chance to check out both releases, so sit back and read on!
There are very few horror/comedies as entertaining as 1995’s Demon Knight. The first of three Tales From the Crypt films (2002’s Ritual was so bad that very few fans even acknowledge it), the Ernest Dickerson-helmed film was an instant hit with horror fans, and rightfully so, it’s kind of perfect. »

David Zonana’s “Princesa,” produced by Michel Franco (“Chronic”) and Gabriel Ripstein (“600 Miles”), toon pic “A Nap on the Train” – which underscores the sophistication of Mexican animation – and Ileana Leyva’s “In the Hallways,” a film suggesting its geographic spread – are featured in the Morelia Fest 2nd Online Mexican Short Film Selection.
Near double in size– 34 titles vs. 2014’s 19 – the titles will play YouTube and a fest micro website during Mexico’s Morelia Fest, which runs Oct. 23 to Nov. 1.
Requiring permission from producers to play online, selection takes in half of the shorts that will screen from Friday at Morelia. Some buzzed-up titles – Juan Jose Medina and Rita Basulto’s “Zimbo,” or the eco-conscious “Jaguar” in animation; Alejandro Gerber’s “Luces brillantes” in fiction – aren’t in the cut; which will of course lend even more excitement to the short films’ cinema theater exhibition at Morelia.
But, an enterprising attempt to broaden the shorts’ distribution, »

October 20th is yet another stellar week of horror and sci-fi home entertainment releases, all leading up to our favorite holiday: Halloween. One of my favorite films of all time, Ernest Dickerson’s Tales from the Crypt Presents: Demon Knight, is finally making its way to HD via a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray from Scream Factory. And as if that’s not enough, Scream is also busy with two more great releases this Tuesday as well—Bordello of Blood and The Larry Fessenden Collection.
Kino Lorber is reviving another cult classic on Tuesday too—The Oblong Box—which is based on the Edgar Allan Poe tale and co-stars two cinematic legends, Vincent Price and Christopher Lee. For those of you Back to the Future fans out there (and really, who isn’t?), Universal is giving the series a few special releases in time for the film’s 30th anniversary and, »

Next Tuesday, Scream Factory will offer horror fans several new options for Halloween movie marathons when The Larry Fessenden Collection and the Tales From the Crypt films Demon Knight and Bordello of Blood come out on respective Blu-rays. Ahead of their impending release date, we have clips and trailers from all three Blu-rays to give you a look at what's to come.
Demon Knight (Collector's Edition Blu-ray): "A mysterious drifter known as Brayker (William Sadler, Iron Man 3) possesses the last of seven ancient keys that hold the power to stop the forces of darkness and protect all humanity from ultimate evil. But the human race is safe only so long as Brayker can evade the demonic Collector (Billy Zane, Titanic) who has gathered the other six keys.
In his obsessive quest for the key, the Collector rallies an army of ghastly cadavers against Brayker and the inhabitants of a run-down hotel. »

Between the horrifically graphic deaths and the great music on this week's episode of American Horror Story: Hotel, you may have missed that one scene is directly lifted from a classic '80s horror flick. Remember the 1987 vampire thriller The Lost Boys? It's a great movie, and it happens to contain one particularly memorable scene. We'll give you a hint: maggots are involved. In case you never saw the movie or you didn't put the pieces together, here's the inspiration for one of American Horror Story's most disturbing scenes so far.

We're officially in the thick of American Horror Story: Hotel, and we're already starting to feel like it may be the best season yet. One of the reasons we love Hotel so much is it seems there's a noted return to old horror tropes, but in the best way. Just this week, we noticed a nod to The Lost Boys, but with a season like this, we've been on high alert for homages to one of the most iconic horror movies ever: The Shining. We already saw an epic re-creation of the hedge maze (with a frozen Jack-Torrance-like corpse, to boot) on Scream Queens, but the fun doesn't stop there. Keep reading for all the references Ahs has made to Stanley Kubrick's 1980s classic.

Not having quite plundered all of the 80s for every possible remake, Hollywood is now starting to eviscerate the 90s. The latest quasi-classic to get the reboot treatment is Flatliners, which came out just on the cusp of the 1990's emerging into their own as a viable landscape for cinema. The original film contains elements from both eras, making it unique in the sci-fi horror genre. At this time, it's not known how the storyline will be skewered or altered, if at all.
Ellen Page is in talks to headline this version of Flatliners. It isn't known if she will play the role of Dr. Rachel Mannus, originated by Julia Roberts. It's possible that this version could introduce a whole new set of characters. The rest of the ensemble cast from the original included some heavy hitters from that time period, including Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, William Baldwin and Oliver Platt. »
The original film centered around a group of medical students who had the ability to travel into the afterworld to try to find meaning in their own lives, before having to be resuscitated in the nick of time before dying. Before long however, their experiments start to go south.

Joe Wright, the British director who, up until now has settled on bringing mainly period dramas like Pride and Prejudice and Atonement to the screen, focusses his talented sights on a retelling of the Peter Pan classic, which too can be wedged in that aforementioned genre, with the action taking place during World War II.
Pan is a brand new origin story written by Jason Fuchs, and was a screenplay that has appeared on the famous Blacklist, Hollywood’s list of the best of the best unmade screenplays. The action kicks off just before WWII, where Peter Pan’s mother Mary (Amanda Seyfried) is seen seemingly abandoning her newborn child at the gates of the Lambeth Home For Boys in south London. We very quickly skip forward 12 years to find Peter (newcomer »
