While at Texas Frightmare Weekend, I had the pleasure of hearing from a few cenobites at the Hellraiser panel, known to other Frightmare attendees as the Cenobite Me panel. Doug Bradley, who played the infamous character of Pinhead, along with Nicholas Vince, who played Chatterer, and Barbie Wilde, who played the female cenobite in Hellbound: Hellraiser II reunited in Texas for a quick chat with Fangoria Magazine’s editor in chief, Chris Alexander. This was undoubtedly one of the most entertaining panels I’ve ever been to, and I feel lucky to have had witnessed it in person. However, I know a lot of people couldn’t make it all the way to Texas, so I wanted to share the experience with everyone. This way, everyone can rejoice in the event of some of horror’s most iconic figures reliving the shocking, provocative, unforgettable Hellraiser films that we all know and love. »

Back in May, we showed you the first teaser for the hotly anticipated Foxcatcher. That clip focused on Steve Carell’s eccentric, violent, and amply nosed millionaire John du Pont. This one focuses on Channing Tatum’s more-than-a-little-intense Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz. The Bennett Miller–directed film still looks super good, but we can’t say we wouldn’t have preferred if the teaser were soundtracked by a metal version of Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror.” »

This week’s Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, started on a “short”, sad note as host Ranvir Shorey read out a humorous letter from host Drashti Dhami explaining why she has left the show. Ranvir even joked that he wished she hadn’t left him as he now has to do all the work himself! Of course, thankfully, Drashti has been replaced and it is by none other than Manish Paul who was one of the original hosts during the earlier seasons of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. All the judges and contestants welcomed him warmly, and the show was filled with his usual hilarious antics and natural flirty behaviour with the ladies!
This week’s theme of Jhalak was ‘Judges Demand’ and this meant that the judges had chosen the specific dance style and that each contestant was to perform. Only how they did it, would remain entirely their choice.

Five years ago today Michael Jackson died. It feels like it was yesterday. His music still floods the airwaves and theaters and his popularity remains undiminished. Here are five reasons we’ll never see the likes of his singular talent again: 1. He had time to develop: There’s no real development process anymore: whether it’s the immediacy of “American Idol,” “The Voice,” etc., or YouTube, wanna-be artists get exposure often way before they are ready—even though they think they are. Jackson and his brothers incubated in Gary, Ind., away from any spotlight. Though Michael became famous at a very, very early age, that was only after the Jackson 5 had worked their way up through local talent shows, regional tours and more before Motown signed them in 1969 (after initially rejecting them in 1967). 2. He was born a star: Jackson came alive on stage in a way that only a »

Michael Jackson died five years ago today, but let's be clear: His music videos have only gotten more iconic and more unbelievable with time. Turns out it's easy to make timeless music if you're a talent with absolutely no contemporaries. To celebrate his life, we're taking a new approach to Michael's videos. Let's find the 10 craziest moments in all of Mike's videos and count them down to a zany #1. Grab your ticket to the Neverland ball and join me on this insane journey through Mj's video catalog. (Keep in mind that we stuck to short-form videos; if you want some long-form craziness, seek out the "Moonwalker" movie where Joe Pesci plays an evil foe who wants to hook kids on drugs or "Ghosts" where Michael is in makeup as a pudgy old white dude.) »

Chicago – Saturday, June 21st, 2014, marked a special night at the Museum of Broadcast Communications in Chicago – “A Salute to Dick Cavett.” The iconic talk show host, who seemingly knew every celebrity and newsmaker of the 20th Century, was honored for his broadcasting career, which has spanned over 50 years.
Richard Alva “Dick” Cavett was born – like his fellow talk show host Johnny Carson – in Nebraska. Like Carson, he began his entertainment career as a magician, right before he began college at Yale University. Shortly after graduating from Yale in the late 1950s, he was working at Time Magazine when he saw a notice in the newspaper that Jack Paar – then the host of “The Tonight Show” –was having difficulties with his opening monologues. Cavett wrote some jokes, and hand delivered them to Paar, who used them that night. The door to his career was open for Cavett, as he was hired »

Woah, time flies! Madonna's daughters are all grown up and the pop icon is keen on showing them off in her latest Instagram pics.

A second video for Michael Jackson's "Love Never Felt So Good" has been released — without Justin Timberlake. Debuted on Thursday, the alternate video for the first single off of Xscape includes even more archival footage of Jackson's many music videos, including "Beat It," "Bad," "Black or White" and "Smooth Criminal," among others. All of the old footage is interspersed with frames of a crowd of young dancers who are singing along and attempting the most memorable moves from the videos, dancing atop subway turnstiles for "Bad" and pool tables for "Beat It."

It’s official: Tom Hiddleston’s musical talent will no longer be confined to soundstages or the passenger seat of a car. His voice is going to be heard by all when he takes on the role of country star Hank Williams in Marc Abraham’s I Saw The Light.
In honor of his new venture and also because it’s Friday, we’ve rounded up some of Hiddleston’s best musical moments (with a little dancing bonus — because if this movie doesn’t take advantage of his rhythm, it might as well be a crime):

As many of you know, CW just released a teaser trailer for their upcoming revamp series called The Flash. Not to downplay the original trailer, but the CW has released two more trailers.

Sci-fi crime thriller Almost Human takes place in a world full of exciting new technology. Here are the inventions we covet the most…
The year is 2048. Evolving technologies can no longer be regulated. Dangerous advancements forever alter the criminal landscape. Police are not prepared. Law enforcement combats this corruption with a new line of defence... but not all are created equal.
Technology porn is an undeniable part of Almost Human’s attraction. J.H. Wyman’s sci-fi crime drama takes place in a world stuffed with cool gadgets, from big ticket items like its car-flipping synthetic humans to just-for-fun inventions like tiny robotic giraffes.
It’s an impressive feat of world-building that not only recalls the show’s sci-fi heritage (from Blade Runner to Battlestar Galactica, Almost Human proudly wears its influences on its sleeve) but also ensures its audience are held convincingly in thrall.
Set just fifty years from now, »
