5 Horror Films To Watch This Halloween

4 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

For me, Halloween has always been about watching scary movies. While all the other kids dressed up as pirates and princesses and went trick-or-treating, all little Laura wanted to do was eat some popcorn and watch a Child's Play Marathon, or Hocus Pocus on replay. And my guess is that if you're a fan of this site, chances are you also like staying in and watching movies on Halloween. That's why I decided to put together a short list of horror films you should watch this spooky holiday. Feel free to put your suggestions below.

1. Hocus Pocus

Disney's Hocus Pocus is wickedly funny and charming. Three witches, played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy, set out regain their youth by absorbing the life force of kids. Hocus Pocus is a cult classic. It has a great sense of humor, and it's actually a movie you can watch »

The scariest movies ever nominated for an Academy Award

4 hours ago | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Since it’s Halloween (Happy Halloween everyone), I wanted to do something horror centric but also still relating to Oscar in some way. As such, I wanted to take a look at which scary movies, to one degree or another, were embraced by the Academy Awards. Ideally I’d have focused on Best Picture, but as I’m sure you all know, the pickings there will be mighty slim. Instead, I’ll bounce around, trying to stick to bigger categories whenever possible, but still looking for the most overt examples of genre fare ever cited. I might bend the rules once or twice, but hey…it’s Halloween. I hope you all enjoy. Here’s the ten scariest movies to catch the attention of Oscar: 1. The Silence of the Lambs – Any list like this has to start with this one, since it almost swept the Oscars in its year. Best Picture, »

Horror at the Oscars! 10 horror-ish films that should have been nominated for Best Picture

21 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Halloween is tomorrow! Did you pick out your costume yet? If you're stuck, HitFix has a few ideas for you. In the meantime, here's something else to chew on. Horror and the Oscars don't tend to go hand in hand. One of the most amazing anomalies of the circuit is the dominance of "The Silence of the Lambs" in 1991, but there remains a whole slew of horror films that were marked by as much aesthetic and formal value as any number of award winners. But they were just passed over. Genre bias? Maybe. Therefore, if you set out to make a list of horror films that should have been nominated for Best Picture, it's very possible that list just ends up looking like any number of "best horror films" lists. But we've given it our best stab here. Assuming all eras equal — as in, a Best Picture realm that has »

Lens Flare Supercut Makes a Case for the Derided Effect

29 October 2014 5:28 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Remember when Disney announced that J.J. Abrams would direct Star Wars: Episode VII and all of Twitter lit up with lens flare jokes? (Not me. I made a Felicity joke.) Jacob T. Swinney thinks that (possible) overuse of the camera effect has led to an unfair devaluation of the camera effect. He writes,

Lens flares seem to catch a bad rap. While some are simply a stylistic element (and some are even mistakes), there are plenty of thoughtful and symbolic uses of light scattering through the lens. Here is a compilation showcasing the many different types and uses of lens flares in a variety of films. 

To prove that, he has made this compilation of purposeful, thoughtful lens flares throughout cinematic history. Or actually, mostly recent films with a few older ones thrown in for cred. Still, he makes a compelling case. Abrams even makes the list. The supercut is »

26 October 2014 9:38 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Caged Heat screens Saturday November 22nd at 8pm as part of The St. Louis International Film Festival. There will also be a concert by Stace England and the Screen Syndicate, who play an album of songs inspired by Roberta Collins, one of the film’s stars. The Venue is Kdhx (3524 Washington Boulevard‎ St Louis, Mo 63103)

I love Women’s prison films – Chained Heat, Hellhole, Ilsa She Wolf Of The SS, The Big Bird Cage, The Big Doll House, Reform School Girls, and The Concrete Jungle all sit proudly on my Wip (Women in Prison) DVD shelf. One of the very best of this beloved subgenre is Caged Heat (1974), a wonderful exploitation masterpiece and the directing debut of Oscar-winner Jonathan Demme, that has everything you could possibly hope for in a Women-In-Prison movie: nudity, shower catfights, lesbian coupling, race wars, murder, chain-swinging, switch-blade slashing, and shock therapy!

Wow! You’re probably »

40 Great Horror Films for the Halloween Season Part 4: 10-1

24 October 2014 8:16 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Movies 10-1

10. Videodrome (1983) directed by David Cronenberg

In David Cronenberg’s world, sex hurts so good; it’s innately disgusting and primeval but at the same time beautiful and becoming. (Kind of like sex in the real world, when you think about it.) Bodies degenerate and mental states corrode under the influence of lust, and yet something new is engendered by the collision of bodies, bodily fluids, the ripping of flesh and the mangling of organs. Through the carrion of ugly comes the attractive flesh, the new flesh. Videodrome, as Jonathan Lethem once quipped, remains Cronenberg’s most penetrative film; he creates a world at once rooted in modernity circa 1983–a world afraid of the advent of television usurping our humanity, over-stimulated times ushering in the end times–and existing in a timeless, placeless vacuum. It’s vast and claustrophobic, prescient and paranoid, of the same lineage as early James Cameron »

The Silence of the Lambs gets an 8-bit video game makeover

23 October 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Silence of the Lambs has been given an 8-bit video game makeover.

As as part of CineFix's 8-bit Cinema series, the 1991 movie has been completely reimagined as an old-school adventure game.

The text-based game follows the adventures of FBI Agent Clarice Starling as she attempts to capture 'Buffalo Bill'.

It captures all of the film's most famous moments, including Clarice's first meeting with Hannibal Lecter.

There's even an 8-bit rendition of 'Buffalo Bill's infamous dancing scene.

The Silence of the Lambs won five Oscars at the 1992 Academy Awards, becoming only the third film to win awards in all five of the top categories.

Silence Of The Lambs - 8-Bit Cinema

22 October 2014 7:28 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

CineFix has released a new episode of their 8-Bit Cinema web series, and this time they transform the 1991 Academy Award-winning classic The Silence of the Lambs. When I first saw this movie, I couldn't believe what I was watching. It was such a horrific movie, and it was done so well. That's still the best performance that Anthony Hopkins has ever given. Even in his 8-bit video game form, Hannibal Lecter is still insanely terrifying.

Charlie Cox talks about Marvel’s Daredevil

21 October 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Charlie Cox (Stardust) was announced to play Daredevil on Marvel’s Netflix show of the same name a few months ago, and since then he has kept quiet about the project. We knew virtually nothing about the show prior to its panel at the New York Comic Con earlier this month where the cast spoke about working on the project [watch the panel here], and now Cox has divulged more information in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. Check out what he had to say below…

“It’s great fun, but it also comes with a great deal of responsibility, I wasn’t really aware of how vast the comic book world was until I became part of the Marvel universe. I went to Comic Con last week, and it’s really important to a lot of people. It really is. I’m having a great time.”

Cox went on to talk about research »

Cool Videos: The 8-bit version of Silence of the Lambs is pretty cool

21 October 2014 10:21 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

There is something to be said for the nostalgia of old school video games. Before graphics got so same amazing, video games had to entice you with gameplay and connections to the movies they were based on. Still, we never saw games based on dramatic films because there wasn't anything very "video-gamey" about them. But, this recreation of The Silence Of The Lambs as an 8-bit game proves that even thrillers can make cool games. Condensing the entire plot into an Nes-caliber game, »

News Nuggets: 10 tasty tidbits about the next blood-soaked season of 'Hannibal'

20 October 2014 7:23 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The cast and producers of NBC's "Hannibal" offer their fans new tasty tidbits about the "beautiful, macabre psychological thriller." Appearing at New York's PaleyFest, showrunner Bryan Fuller and stars Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, and Laurence Fishburne discuss the past and what is on the horizon for the third season. They say that "the emotional, blood-soaked" ending of last season was a "crucible" for everyone. Coming up, Hannibal's outfits might become even flashier while he is on the run, and there will not be as many tableaus for the next episodes. They are still pursuing the idea of bringing in Clarice Starling (played in "The Silence of the Lambs" by Oscar winner Jodie Foster). Entertainment Weekly -Break- Brad Pitt and his World War II soldiers in "Fury" take down "Gone Girl" at the box office this weekend. The debut brings in $23.5 million as it also tries to entrance awards voters. »

Tao Okamoto Joins Hannibal Season 3 As Lady Murasaki

18 October 2014 1:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Bryan Fuller has some exciting things planned for Hannibal‘s hotly-anticipated third season, which includes some intriguing new characters from Thomas Harris’ books. While the series has deviated greatly from the source material thus far, Fuller has taken it upon himself to draw inspiration and story beats from novel like Hannibal and The Silence of the Lambs at will, and is tackling the prequel novel Hannibal Rising next.

That, of course, comes with the inclusion of Lady Murasaki, Hannibal’s mysterious Japanese aunt. According to Deadline, Murasaki will be played by The Wolverine and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice actress Tao Okamoto. The site describes her role as follows:

“Okamoto will play the dark and mysterious Lady Murasaki, who possesses an alluring and classical beauty with a dark secret.”

Hannibal Lecter’s relationship with Lady Murasaki is incredibly complicated, darkly twisted and even romantic. Judging by the way Fuller »

Video Breakdown: Hannibal vs. Clarice in 'The Silence of the Lambs'

15 October 2014 7:06 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I've become a pretty big fan of Tony Zhou's "Every Frame a Painting" video series on Vimeo and YouTube, and although I'm not as big a fan of The Silence of the Lambs as many are, I found his most recent installment on the film quite informative. Entitled "Who Wins the Scenec", the video examines the first meeting between Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) and Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) in Jonathan Demme's 1991 thriller, which won 5 Academy Awards including a trophy for both actors mentioned above. In the video, Zhou examines how camera angles, framing, and point-of-view lay out the scene to help the viewer determine who ultimately wins this first standoff between the young FBI cadet and the seasoned serial killer. Both enter the scene with a primary goal in mind, but only one can be the true winner in the end. After watching this video, my thoughts immediately went »

Movie Review – Gutshot (2014)

13 October 2014 2:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gutshot (aka Gutshot Straight), 2014.

Directed by Justin Steele

Starring George Eads, AnnaLynne McCord, Steven Seagal, Vinnie Jonnes, Ted Levine,Stephen Lang, Tia Carrere and Fiona Dourif.

Synopsis:

A hard-up gambler gets in deep with the underworld when he takes up a bet from a wealthy gangster to pay off his loans.

Don’t be fooled by the poster art for Gutshot as this isn’t a Steven Seagal vehicle, despite his image being the most prominent. Neither is it a Vinnie Jones headliner, as his mug is also all over it, but both actors are part of an ensemble cast that includes Ted Levine (The Silence of the Lambs), George Eads (CSI: Crime Scene Investigtion), AnnaLynne McCord (Excision) and Stephen Lang (Tombstone) in a film that feels a little different in style for all involved, which isn’t a bad thing.

Jack (Eads) is a professional gambler who has run »
