How Many People in the U.S. Share Their Name with a Famous Horror Icon?

28 October 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Do you know anyone named Michael Myers? How about Freddy Krueger? If not, you could soon. Directory service Whitepages recently compiled a list of real people who share names with iconic figures from the horror canon. (While they did not do a follow-up and ask those people how they felt about sharing their names, we can surmise "not good" is probably the answer for most of them.) "Many people could say they've been scared by a number of the villains on this list, but until now have probably never thought that one could be living next door!" Whitepages culture and »

17 October 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The 41-year-old Cape Fear star, who co-starred with Misty in the 2013 drama August: Osage County, shared a photo with her pal on Instagram and praised Upham for her kindhearted presence.  "Misty Upham survived many things that many don't early on in life," she wrote. "She fought for the voiceless feircely. She understood suffering and the deepest pain. She had a presence everyone saw and felt. It is this presence that will continue. Out of the dark space »

The Definitive Scary Scenes from Non-Horror Films: 40-31

11 October 2014 1:34 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

40. Night of the Hunter (1955)

Scene: The Preacher on the Horizon

Video: http://youtu.be/9PyNL2ahKwc?list=PLZbXA4lyCtqolaQOAXly96de5FYQlPzqK Just like a few others in this section of the list, Charles Laughton’s brilliant Night of the Hunter isn’t really a horror film, but still sets out to keep the audience on edge. Starring a diabolical Robert Mitchum as a preacher/serial killer Reverend Harry Powell, it follows him as he tries to woo his former cellmate’s widow Willa (Shelly Winters), hoping to learn where he has hidden his bank loot. Powell devises that his children John and Pearl must know, but he struggles to gain young John’s trust. When Willa learns of his plan, Powell is forced to kill her and hide the body, leaving him as sole caretaker of the children, who flee down the river. And then the scene. Having believed they have escaped Powell, »

Desperate Housewives Emmy-Nominated Actress Lost Her Fortune Following Stock-Market Crash

22 September 2014 5:15 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Polly Bergen: 'Desperate Housewives' Emmy nominee; winner for 'The Helen Morgan Story' (photo: Felicity Huffman, Doug Savant, and Polly Bergen in 'Desperate Housewives') (See previous article: "Polly Bergen: Actress on Richard Nixon 'Enemies List'.") Polly Bergen began her lengthy — and to some extent prestigious — television career in 1950, making sporadic appearances in anthology series. She won an Emmy for Best Actress in a Single Performance – Lead or Supporting — beating Julie Andrews, Helen Hayes, Teresa Wright, and Piper Laurie — for playing troubled torch singer Helen Morgan (Show Boat) in the 1957 Playhouse 90 episode "The Helen Morgan Story," featuring veteran Sylvia Sidney as Morgan's mother. Curiously, Bergen's retelling of Helen Morgan's story was broadcast the same year that Ann Blyth starred in Michael Curtiz's Morgan biopic. Also titled The Helen Morgan Story, the film focused on the relationship between the singer and a »

Polly Bergen dead at 84: ‘First woman president of the U.S.A.,’ former mistress of Tony Soprano’s father Emmy Award-winning actress Polly Bergen — whose roles ranged from the first U.S.A. woman president in Kisses for My President to the former mistress of both Tony Soprano’s father and John F. Kennedy in the television hit series The Sopranos — died from "natural causes" on September 20, 2014, at her home in Southbury, Connecticut. The 84-year-old Bergen, a heavy smoker for five decades, had been suffering from emphysema and other ailments since the 1990s. "Most people think I was born in a rich Long Island family," she told The Washington Post in 1988, but Polly Bergen was actually born Nellie Paulina Burgin on July 14, 1930, to an impoverished family in Knoxville, Tennessee. Her father was an illiterate construction worker while her mother got only as far as the third grade. The family »

10 Crazy Wrestling Gimmicks That Should Have Never Worked (But Did)

14 September 2014 12:44 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Over the years, professional wrestling has seen many a bizarre, crazy gimmick. In general, it’s pretty much an anything-goes industry. However, just because anything goes doesn’t mean that anything works.

From farmers to aerobics instructors, teachers to dentists, along with cowboys, fairies, millionaires, bodyguards, garbage men, plumbers, race car drivers, truck drivers, bikers, Mortal Kombat characters (or close facsimiles thereof), rednecks, rappers, country singers, supermodels, and so on, many gimmicks simply beggar belief.

In other cases, there are those gimmicks which just seem so strange, so out there that it feels like there is no way the audience could ever invest themselves in someone wearing the persona of a particular gimmick. And yet, despite all the odds to the contrary, they not only manage to survive… they manage to thrive as well.

Of course, many of these don’t tend to go very far. In some cases, »

New No Good Deed 2014 Movie Received Mostly Negative Reviews From Major Critics

13 September 2014 1:07 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Screen Gems (Sony) released their new thriller film, "No Good Deed," into theaters this past Thursday, September 11th, and all the reviews are in from the top,major movie critics. It turns out that this film came far from resonating with them as most of them damn near hated it with an overall 27 score out of a possible 100 over at the Metacritic.com site. The movie stars: Idris Elba, Taraji P. Henson, Leslie Bibb, Kate del Castillo and Henry Simmons. We posted blurbs from a couple of the critics,below. Lindsey Bahr from Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 50 score, saying: "There's an intriguing premise buried in there that could have resulted in a smart look inside the mind of a malignant narcissist (which, the movie reminds us over and over again, was Jeffrey Dahmer's diagnosis too)." Dennis Harvey from Variety, gave it a 40 score, stating: "Ensuing action is tamely PG-13 in terms of graphic violence. »

10 Classic Movies That Will Inevitably Be Remade

9 September 2014 4:13 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Remakes, reboots and reimaginings; in recent years, ‘re’ has certainly become Hollywood’s go-to prefix. In an age where nearly every high-profile movie that hits theaters is based on an existing property, original projects are continually being overlooked in favor of those with built-in appeal and name recognition. There are currently dozens of established properties in development that are being rehashed and updated for the current generation of audiences, with the trend showing no signs of slowing down.

With that being said, there have been plenty of great remakes over the years. Classic movies like The Fly, Scarface, The Thing and Heat were all based on existing movies, while Ocean’s Eleven, Cape Fear and True Grit all delivered updates that were superior to the originals. However, on the other side of the coin are the dozens of lazy and uninspired remakes that seem to think a recognizable »

15 hidden gems from the last 15 years of The Simpsons

4 September 2014 2:28 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark counts down 15 great episodes of The Simpsons from its often-overlooked past 15 years...

Last week, we counted down our list of the top 50 episodes of The Simpsons ever made. It's a tough list to make, picking out less than 10 percent of the 552 episodes broadcast to date, to select the very best of the best. This is despite the off-hand consensus of some viewers that the series has been total rubbish since season 10.

We don't hold much truck with this assumption. The Simpsons is an institution and to suggest that more than half of it is garbage is more than a bit reductive. Admittedly, there's much to support the argument that few episodes produced in the twenty-first century can quite stand up to the genius of the earlier canon, but anything would suffer in comparison to that golden age of the show.

If you're one of the people who stopped watching the series after the nineties, »

New on Video: ‘Out of the Past’

1 September 2014 8:53 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Out of the Past

Directed by Jacques Tourneur

Written by Daniel Mainwaring

USA, 1947

Director Jacques Tourneur knew how to make the most out of a little, particularly when he was working in collaboration with producer Val Lewton (see Cat People, 1942, I Walked with a Zombie, 1943, and The Leopard Man, 1943). So when Rko gave this master of the low-budget picture a comparatively larger budget and a top-notch screenplay (by Daniel Mainwaring—as Geoffrey Homes—based on his own novel, “Build My Gallows High”) the result was one of the finest of all film noir.

Starring Robert Mitchum as Jeff and Jane Greer as Kathie, Out of the Past is built on a premise that is one of the defining characteristics of noir: the inevitability of an inescapable past. Such a device was often integral, with the repercussions of one’s recent deeds coming back to haunt them, but relatively rare was »

The Simpsons top 50 episodes

28 August 2014 8:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob counts down the top 50 episodes of TV's longest-running animated series, The Simpsons...

Since its debut in 1989, across 552 episodes and 25 seasons, The Simpsons has become one of the most revered and beloved TV programmes of all time. It’s a true cultural phenomenon that’s influenced not just animation, but all areas of TV comedy and sitcom. For so many of us, its quotes and catchphrases have permeated our everyday vernacular, from single words like “crisitunity” and “embiggen” to phrases “you don’t win friends with salad” and “everything’s coming up Milhouse.”

Personal opinions may vary, but for me the show’s peak years were from season 4 through to 10. They’re consistently funny, all killer and no filler runs with barely a dud episode to be found between 1992-1998. Past this point the standard becomes a little more mixed, and recent seasons have been distinctly average at best. The »

A Helpful Guide to How ‘The Simpsons’ Movie Parodies Have Changed Over 25 Years

28 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

There’s another five days left in Fxx’s great rerunning of every episode of The Simpsons in recorded history. Now, we don’t want to distract you — there’s still at least 100 hours to go, and shifting your eyes away from the TV for any reason could ruin that perfect butt-shaped indent that’s this close to being a permanent part of the couch — but just in case you need a break (a break that still involves The Simpsons, of course, we’re not monsters), here’s a momentary distraction. We all know the myriad of reasons why The Simpsons remains so popular. Revolutionize this, landmark that, longest-running yadda yadda yadda and so forth. But an exemplary trait of The Simpsons that tends to get short shrift (or shorter shrift, anyway), is its relationship with cinema. The Simpsons overflows with a love for film. Little homages to the classics. Grand »
