Go Behind the Scenes of Aubrie Sellers’ ‘Sit Here and Cry’ Biker Chic Video

Go Behind the Scenes of Aubrie Sellers’ ‘Sit Here and Cry’ Biker Chic Video
Aubrie Sellers refuses to fit the mold of your average female country musician — and in an exclusive look at the making of the “Sit Here and Cry” music video, the singer proves she has no plans to deviate anytime soon.

“When I was thinking of video ideas for this song, I wanted it to reflect the energy of the music and express the big eye roll that ‘Sit Here and Cry’ is,” Sellers explained to People exclusively. “I had a very specific visual vision for it, and when I saw Sam Siske’s reel I knew he was going to get it.

‘Ghoulies 1&2′ Blu-ray Review (101 Films)


Stars: Peter Liapis, Lisa Pelikan, Michael Des Barres, Jack Nance, Mariska Hargitay, Scott Thomson, Ralph Seymour | Written by Luca Bercovici, Jefery Levy | Directed by Luca Bercovici

Ghoulies 2

Stars: Damon Martin, Royal Dano, Phil Fondacaro, J. Downing, Kerry Remsen, Donnie Jeffcoat, Dale Wyatt | Written by Charlie Dolan, Dennis Paoli, Luca Bercovici | Directed by Albert Band

For my film-loving friends and I, Ghoulies and its immediate sequel were almost rites of passage growing up – I distinctly remember renting them from not only the local video shop but also that strange guy that used to park on the street corner renting tapes out of his boot (or, if he was more successful, the back of a transit van). You know the one, he’d have the craziest VHS tapes you’d ever seen – Class of Nuke Em High, Black Roses, The Toxic Avenger, Ghoulies… all films that sold themselves on artwork alone.

5 Films You Should’ve Seen in 2015

By Kevin Scott

I’ve always seen Christmas and New Year’s as the one-two punch of all holidays. All the prep that goes into Christmas to culminate in just one brief and fleeting day, and then being immediately followed by the end of the year. That year that has etched its last two digits into our subconscious, and dies hard when trying to learn to write or type the new two digits for the following year. New Year’s is also a time when you can add one more year to how long it’s been since you passed some of life’s memorable and major rites of passage, like high school or college graduation, or even how long ago your favorite films came out.

It can be a bit melancholy if you let it. One thing that is definitely a high point of all this closure

Nashville Sneak Peek: Deacon and Scarlett Face Their Toughest Decision

Nashville Sneak Peek: Deacon and Scarlett Face Their Toughest Decision
It’s a good thing Nashville‘s Beverly made her peace with Scarlett and Deacon in last week’s episode, because it looks like the inspiration for “Black Roses” soon will be pushing up daisies.

This exclusive sneak peek at Wednesday’s episode (ABC, 10/9c) takes us inside the painful meeting between Bev’s family and her physician. While Scarlett sits, shell-shocked, Deacon refuses to believe that machines are the only things keeping his brain-dead sister alive.

Frightfest 2015: ‘Deathgasm’ Review

Stars: Milo Cawthorne, James Blake, Kimberley Crossman, Sam Berkley, Daniel Cresswell | Written and Directed by Jason Lei Howden

Deathgasm. That name conjures up a myriad of things in your mind. A myriad of things that Deathgasm probably contains in its short, but packed, 90 minutes running time. From death by dildo, decapitations, eviscerations, disembowelment, dismemberment and more. And metal. Lots and lots of heavy metal. Old-school metal, death metal, black metal; but definitely Not any hair metal!

The movie tells the story of Brodie, a metal-loving kid sent to live with his bible-bashing relatives who is an outcast at home And at school. When he meets a kindred spirit in Zakk at the local record shop, they decide – along with Brodie only two schoolfriends – to start their own band, the titular Deathgasm (they rejected the name Intestinal Bungee Jump). Soon the duo’s resentment of the suburban wasteland leads them to

Nashville's Laura Benanti Talks 'Heartwarming' Memorial Day Gig, Weighs in on Deacon Cliffhanger

Nashville's Laura Benanti Talks 'Heartwarming' Memorial Day Gig, Weighs in on Deacon Cliffhanger
Sadie Stone might have left Nashville before the end of the season, but Laura Benanti‘s heart is firmly ensconced in the ABC drama’s goings-on.

Take, for instance, her thoughts on Deacon’s sister Beverly, a hard-to-love character who grudgingly donated part of her liver to her ailing brother and who might have died at the end of the season finale.

“That beyotch!” Benanti says, chuckling. “Ugh, she’s so crazy. I hate her!” She calls out the title of Scarlett’s ballad of pain, inspired by Beverly’s borderline abusive mothering. ‘Black Roses! Black Roses!'”

‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Nightmare’ is the King of Metalsploitation

The first scene plays out like an anti-thesis to the satanic and heavy metal antics that the film devotes itself too. The setup is quaint. A young father happily shaves his face. A young mother is cooking breakfast, and their son yells that he can’t wait to scramble eggs with her! All of the sudden demons pop out of the oven and kill the mom and dad. Thus begins Rock ‘n’ Roll Nightmare – also known as The Edge of Hell in certain parts of the world – perhaps the most definitive entry into “Metalsploitation”.

What is “Metalsploitation”? One of my friends brought the term to my attention, and I’m not sure if that subgenre classification already exists, so if not congratulations to him for inventing it. Metalsploitation exists in this bizarre era of cinema where horror films and heavy metal artists and music met. It produced cult classics like this,

SXSW 2015: Director Jason Howden Previews the Heavy Metal Horror and Friendship of Deathgasm

Horror and Heavy Metal have a long, strong history, both in parallel interests (the occult, general rowdiness, protest, Satan) and combined forces (The Gate, Black Roses, Day of the Beast). They’re bedfellows again in upcoming SXSW Midnighter, the eagerly anticipated Deathgasm, whose wailing teaser got real rad real quick. The film follows two metal maniacs…

‘Sniper: Legacy’ Review

Stars: Tom Berenger, Chad Michael Collins, Vasil Enev, Dennis Haysbert, Danko Jordanov, Mercedes Masohn | Written by Don Michael Paul, John Fasano | Directed by Don Michael Paul

Shocking as it may seem given the amount of horror flicks I review here on Nerdly, I’m not just a horror fan. My movie-loving passion is in fact split between three genres: horror, teen comedies and action movies. As much as I can appreciate low-budget horror flicks I can also appreciate low-budget action movies – which, at least from major studios, are few and far between these days. Which is one of the reasons I was excited to check out Sniper: Legacy.

The other reason? Well, as a teenager I used to love Impact Magazine. It really was my film bible, I’d religiously pick up each and every issue from the newsagents near where I used to catch the bus to college; in

10 Things We Learned on the Set of 'Nashville'

10 Things We Learned on the Set of 'Nashville'
It's looking like the Season Two finale of Nashville will mirror the lyrics of a quintessential country song: someone's lyin', someone's breakin' up, and someone's gettin' stinkin' drunk. Rolling Stone was invited to the downtown Nashville set of the May 14 episode, which we're told will end in cliffhangers for most all of the main characters. We spent time in between scenes tempting the actors to spill secrets about the finale (which airs at 10:00 Pm Et on ABC). In doing so, we learned a little bit about the episode and
