Teenage Fan Steals the Show at Bruce Springsteen Concert in Australia -- See the Clip!
Cutting class doesn’t get better than this!

An Australian teen had the night of his life when he was pulled up on stage to perform one of his favorite songs with Bruce Springsteen at his Brisbane, Australia, concert on Thursday night.

After reading the sign to a packed crowd at the Brisbane Entertainment Center, the musician invited the teen to come up on stage.

"Do you know the song? You know it on guitar? Well come on up!" said the rocker in a clip posted by YouTube user Melanie J.S.B.

The 14-year-old was given a guitar to perform the track with Springsteen, who stopped halfway to ask him to play softer

Synapse Films Wants You to Buy a Bag So Popcorn Can Go Home in a Blu-ray Box

“Buy a Bag, Go Home in a Box.” You have no idea how thrilled I am to report that one of my absolute favorite horror movies of the Nineties, Popcorn, will get a fully-loaded special edition Blu-ray sometime around Halloween this year courtesy of Synapse Films.

For the uninitiated, Popcorn is a love letter to the golden age of b-movies in the guise of a fun slasher flick about film students putting on an all-night bad movie horror film festival; a master-of-disguise maniac begins killing them off during the show via twisted takes on old school movie theater gimmicks.

The true highlights are the fake movies-within-the-movie lovingly paying homage to the b-movies of the Fifties and Sixties: The Amazing Electrified Man, The Stench, and Mosquito!

As much as I’ve had a major soft spot for Popcorn since seeing it in theaters opening weekend, I clearly don’t love it

10 More Awesome Horror-Themed Music Videos [Nsfw]

  • FEARnet
 

At the tail end of last year, Gregory Burkart presented you with his top 10 favorite horror inspired music videos of the year, a gory collection of horrific imagery mashed together with delightful sounds; a combination that I personally can't get enough of.  Be sure to go back and check out his picks, if you missed that post or just want to re-watch some kickass videos.

Today, I've queued up ten more awesome horror-themed music videos that I think you're going to like.  So instead of sitting here and talking to you any further, I invite you to turn up the volume and dig in!

Franz Ferdinand: "Evil Eye"

This here is actually the video that inspired this whole list.  Released just a few days ago, Franz Ferdinand's new video "Evil Eye" is an absolute must-watch, a blood-soaked ode to those cheesy '80s shot-on-video horror flicks that we all love so much.

Brad Pitt Eating: The Mashup

  • NextMovie
Movie characters may seem more glamorous than you and me, but they've gotta eat. And you know who eats a lot in movies? Brad Pitt. And unlike the rest of us, even in comic moments, he looks good doing it (shocker).

Pitt did a fair amount of eating in his Oscar-nominated turn as Billy Beane in "Moneyball," but he chows down so much in so many movies, we're starting to wonder if the actor just gets hungry on set and brings his lunch into the scene with him. We're just waiting to see how much he ingests in "Killing Them Softly," out this week.

Movies Included (Click to Buy):

TroyMr. and Mrs. Smith | Moneyball | Ocean's Eleven | Johnny Suede | The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford | The Devil's Own | Inglorious Basterds  | Across the Tracks | Cutting Class | Kalifornia | Spy Game | Meet Joe Black | Sleepers | Seven Years in Tibet

Graduation Day (1981) Review

Graduation Day is a high school slasher and there are tons and tons of these films out there... and oddly enough they are all virtually identical. From Cutting Class to Prom Night to Return to Horror High to Scream (which more paid homage to them than anything in my opinion) they all follow the same basic building blocks. Some horrible tragedy or prank perpetrated in the past gets avenged by masked killer. Many teens die multiple red herrings teenage sexual hijinks yada yada yada. You get the point.

Beyond Jennifer Aniston: 10 More Celebs We Can’t Believe Got Their Start In Horror Movies

We know all know Jennifer Aniston got her start running in terror from a tiny evil leprechaun in, you know, Leprechaun, but did you know that most A-listers have a crappy horror film lurking in their past somewhere? From Paul Rudd to Jack Black, Demi Moore to Amy Adams, the biggest names in Hollywood have at one point been covered in corn syrup blood and chased by a prop chainsaw. So enjoy 10 amazing actors and actresses who had to pay their dues at the business end of a fake meat cleaver. Our personal favorite? Julianne Moore. Can anyone name a dumber movie death than hers? We honestly want to know!

1) Paul Rudd, Halloween 6: The Curse Of Michael Myers (1995)

It would be so cute to see Paul Rudd carrying a baby! Unless of course he’s carrying a baby while sprinting down a hospital corridor to escape Michael Myers in this 1995 horror film.

Scream Debuts: 9 Big Stars Who Started in Horror

Not all great cinema stars have the most auspicious beginnings to their lives in celluloid. Some start in commercials, TV, bit parts, background work. Hell, a few even dabble in porn (we're looking at you, Sylvester Stallone).

Ground zero for acting talent, more often than not, is the horror genre. This being Halloween season, we decided to highlight a few mega-talents who jumpstarted their careers in much the same way they entered the world: naked, screaming and covered in blood.

George Clooney, 'Return to Horror High' (1987)

It took the "Ides of March" actor-director a solid decade in show business before he launched into superstardom as Dr. Doug Ross on "ER." Good ol' Gorgeous George may have paid his dues at the school of hard knocks, but he earned his diploma from "Horror High" playing an actor who gets killed by a serial killer while filming a movie about that killer.

Lucky 13: Slasher Victims Who Went On To Be Superstars!

Horror is made up of so many sub-genres, that it’s sometimes difficult to keep up with them all, especially the hidden gems amongst the usual blockbuster hits. But those huge titles are never usually as memorable as those smaller, low-budget frighteners. So to coincide with the DVD release of head-scratching, genre-bending comic-slasher Detention (read our review of Here), which stars a pre-hunger Games Josh Hutcherson, we’ve decided to take a look back at a number of gore and suspense-filled treats which featured a major talent, well before they became a big box-office draw or TV favourites. So here are some superb titles and a few that are bloody awful – they should be ashamed!

So let the countdown begin… or take the horrific consequences…

You Won't Want to Spend the Weekend with This Bernie! Moonstalker (1989) Review

1989 wasnt exactly a landmark year for horror. I dare you to name one movie from that year that has become a classic. Sure, there was Intruder, but other than that, there are just a lot of movies that I personally enjoy (Cutting Class, Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan, Halloween 5, Shocker, Return of the Family Man, etc.). Of course, there were a few stinkers in the bunch, like Elm Street 5. So naturally, I wasnt too enthralled…
