The big payoff moment. The money shot. The Omg/Wtf/Nsfw scene in horror. These are the moments that define films. The moment that either grosses and disgusts or shocks the audience in such a way that they have to come back for the sequel. Here are our Top 13 Wtf Moments in Horror.
We're going to try to keep this to relatively mainstream films. That's not to say that some lesser known indies haven't had some shocking moments, but things seem that much more disturbing when the movie in question reaches a wide audience.
Beginning with our honorable mentions, we've got to include I Spit on Your Grave, one of the most censored and banned films of all times. Camille Keaton played Jennifer Hills who was raped for the better part of the first half of the film. Plenty of Nsfw moments there. Also those infamous shit-eaters in Salo: 120 Days of Sodom were certainly shocking. »

Is this the first time a physical assault has happened at a housewives reunion? Plenty of cast members have stormed off to prevent themselves from punching someone, but I think this is the first time actual fisticuffs happened. Everyone looked lovely. NeNe wore a floor-length hot pink gown and her finest lacefront, the one that makes her hair look like it is molded from plastic; Phaedra had on her best smug attitude and fake smile; Kenya was carrying a scepter and wore Gary Oldman’s battle armor from Bram Stoker’s Dracula; Cynthia wore … something, I’m sure, but can’t remember for reason of a boring nature; Porsha wore her new tits; and Kandi cosplayed as the Winter Soldier.Apollo has apparently been under federal investigation for fraud, which, Phaedra is quick to explain, is not an indictment, she has nothing to do with it, and they’re fine. »

Keep thi’ sen calm, tha’s from Yorkshire. There’s many reasons Yorkshire is God’s Own County, and one of them is the Yorkshire pudding. None of that Aunt Bessie’s muck, we mean a Proper Yorkshire pudding. Puffed up beauties the size of your fist, dripping with oil. Yorkshire folk are a proud bunch, and a lot of people don’t get that. Well, of course they wouldn’t, they’re not from bloody Yorkshire!
The county is hosting the second stage of the Tour De France this summer, our humble home watched by 3 billion people worldwide. Le Grand Départ will roll out from York Racecourse and then take to York’s historic streets.

In March 1981, as he made his Doctor Who debut, Peter Davison was already one the best known faces on British television. Not only was he the star of both a BBC and an ITV sitcom - Sink Or Swim and Holding The Fort - but as the young and slightly reckless Tristan Farnon in All Creatures Great And Small, about the often humorous cases of Yorkshire vet James Herriot and his colleagues, he had cemented his stardom. The part led, indirectly, to his casting as the venerable Time Lord.
Ja from Mnpp here with a new round of "Beauty Vs. Beast" for us to play... this week's inspiration? It's the 54th birthday of one of my favorite actors, Scotsman slash raving lunatic Robert Carlyle. Alright yes he's (probably) just acting the "raving lunatic" part... over and over again... so well... by all accounts he's a very nice gentleman. Think how sweet he seemed romancing Linus Roache in Priest! That was the first place I ever saw him - it was two years later where he'd cement the scary status he'd carry on to roles in Ravenous and 28 Weeks Later (which I actually prefer to the original) with the one and only terror that was Begbie in Danny Boyle's 1996 phenom Trainspotting.
Did I say "one and only"? Make that twice and doubly - now that Ewan and Danny have finally made up following DiCaprio-Gate (Boyle cast Leo over Ewan in The Beach, »
At last we get a great new batch of ape-based stills hot from Matt Reeves' upcoming simian sequel 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes'. The new pics come courtesy of USA Today and they certainly make a change from the stack of MoCap ones we've seen to date. This time we get plenty of monkey business and some fresh poses from stars Jason Clarke ('Zero Dark Thirty') and Gary Oldman ('Bram Stoker's Dracula'). Dotpota also stars Keri Russell ('Dark Skies') Kodi Smit-McPhee ('ParaNorman'), Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo ('Fringe'), Judy Greer ('Archer'), Andy Serkis ('The Hobbit') and Toby Kebbell ('Black Mirror') »
In anticipation of the The Paramount Theatre's 100th birthday next year, The Paramount and Stateside theaters are presenting the year-and-a-half-long "Paramount 100: A Century of Cinema" film series, which celebrates the history of movies from the silent film era to the present day. Movies have been screened in chronological order starting in January. This month marks a shift to the talking pictures of the 1930s.
Movies from the 1930s will screen this and next month as double features, showcasing the emergence of the gangster and monster genres, "while telling stories that range in upper-class highs to Great Depression lows":
Dracula: Bela Lugosi's iconic performance as the Transylvanian nobleman, based on Bram Stoker's novel of the same name. The success of this film ushered in a golden age of Universal horror films and continues to define the look and feel of American horror movies. Frankenstein: This equally iconic monster, »

Hello my beautiful cinephiles. Nathaniel, back from my rejuvenating weekend. It's possible that you haven't missed me since the team has been doing a great job but I missed you.
For my annual post-Oscar getaway I took my first cruise. On the left you'll see me finishing up some cherry & umbrella accented cocktail. That said I wasn't very boozy at all because cruises are cheap but they find other ways to charge you (aka alcohol). I brought no internet screens because cruises are cheap but they find other ways to charge you (aka wi-fi at 75¢ a minute!). The break was good for my eyes and soul so I'm excited to talk movies again (where do we even start?). The break was not, however, good for my skin; I am an unholy mess of three colors (blinding white, near-bronze, and cherry red) because I am not accustomed to sunlight. Sunscreen is, »

In just four short years, Luke Evans has risen through the acting ranks in rapid succession, going from smaller roles in Clash of the Titans and Robin Hood to much bigger parts in The Three Musketeers, Immortals and The Raven. Following roles in No One Lives and Fast & Furious 6, the actor capped off a stellar 2013 by playing Bard the Bowman in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which arrives on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD April 8. I recently had the chance to speak with this talented actor about taking on this coveted role, the archery training he had to go through to play Bard the Bowman, working with director Peter Jackson, while giving us updates on upcoming projects such as Dracula Untold and The Crow. Take a look at what he had to say in our exclusive interview below.
First off, did you read The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings »
Glenn here. As Jason already established, today is Francis Ford Coppola's 75th birthday today. Talia's brother, Sofia and Roman's dad, Nicolas and Jason's uncle, and Gia's grandfather presides over a clearly very talented family that keep kicking artistic goals. We're only four months into this new year and Sofia has (apparently) been hired for her first big studio film, Jason Schwartzman has appeared on screen in indie box office hit The Grand Budapest Hotel, and Gia's directorial debut, Palo Alto, is about to hit cinema screens. What's Frances up to? Well the five-time Oscar winner is laying low it seems after none of his ultra-arty projects - Twixt, Youth Without Youth, Tetro - took off the way he likely expected his artistic return to.
It's then a perfect opportunity to dig a bit deeper into his extensive filmography and find something you've never seen. I know »

Soul or blood-sucking creatures have been a part of folklore for thousands of years, and the modern vampire myth grasped the imagination in the early 18th century and has never really left us since.
A striking retelling of the story came in 2004, with John Ajvide Lindqvist's stunning novel Let the Right One In - later adapted into Tomas Alfredson's 2008 Swedish film and Matt Reeves's 2010 English-language remake Let Me In.

Ja from Mnpp here, back from vacation with a brand new round of "Beauty Vs. Beast." So here's the question (or rather the first question): what's your favorite Francis Ford Coppola movie? The legendary helmer's turning 75 today and so we look back through his work - the Godfathers, the Conversations, the Peggy Sues... the super sad undead love stories... listen, I'm not going to argue that his 1992 version of Dracula is his best film - I'd rather make it through the day without y'all calling the men in white suits to my door, thank you very much. But it's surely the movie of his I've watched the most times and have gotten the most pleasure from (give or take some Rob Lowe coming out of the shower in The Outsiders). The old fashioned effects work, Eiko Ishioka's astounding costumes - I wore my copy of the behind-the-scenes book down to a nub. »
Back in February, Eli Roth announced that he would next make suburban thriller pic Knock, Knock. With production set to kick off this month, he has gathered a cast that includes Keanu Reeves, Lorenza Izzo, Ana de Armas, Ignacia Allamand, Coleen Camp and Aaron Burns.While it’s not strictly a horror movie, it’s the closest Reeves has come to the genre in a long time: though Constantine had some scary elements, it was more of a supernatural superhero film and you have to stretch all the way back to Dracula for real horror (hold the jokes about Reeves’ accent, please). But he’s clearly ready to give something more scaresome a try, agreeing to star in and executive produce the movie that Roth wrote alongside Aftershock/Green Inferno collaborators Guillermo Amoedo and Nicolas Lopez.Knock, Knock finds Reeves as a seemingly happily married man living with his wife »
NBC is really becoming a champion of genre television. In addition to series Grimm, Hannibal, and Dracula, they are working on a four-hour remake of Ira Levin's novel Rosemary's Baby. Yes, Roman Polanski's 1968 version stands as a classic, but let's just look at this as a new adaptation of the novel, not the film. So let's turn into the skid and check out the first photos from the new adaptation, directed by Agnieszka Holland (The Wire, The Killing).
NBC's Rosemary's Baby
NBC's Rosemary's Baby stars Zoe Saldana (Star Trek, Avatar) as Rosemary and Patrick J. Adams (Suits) as her husband, Guy. The pair are running from a painful past in New York and accept an apartment in an exclusive building in Paris. But if things seem too good to be true, they probably are. Their neighbors, the Castevets, seem warm and friendly, but Rosemary starts to believe the »

Captain America is one of the most famous and important superheroes in the Marvel Universe. He is also the oldest Marvel hero to consistently have his own comic as he was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby in 1941. Beginning as a figure of anti-German and Japanese propaganda, Captain America and his civilian identity evolved into a man out of time, and one who was filled with great guilt because of the death of his partner Bucky Barnes. He went from wholeheartedly supporting the United States’ policy to refusing to wear the stars and stripes when the president himself was at the center of a conspiracy to hunt him down and kill him. He has fought and been betrayed by old friends and lovers, but Captain America still act as the moral center of the Marvel Universe, and the hero everyone from Spider-Man to The Punisher and Wolverine look up to and respect. »

Caesar and his young one have popped up on the latest one-sheet for 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes'. The warrior simian is seen cradling his offspring on the new poster from 20th Century Fox further expanding the chain of assets from the Matt Reeves helmed sequel heading our way this July. The movie stars Jason Clarke ('Zero Dark Thirty'), Gary Oldman ('Bram Stoker's Dracula'), Keri Russell ('Dark Skies') Kodi Smit-McPhee ('ParaNorman'), Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo ('Fringe') and Judy Greer ('Archer') with Brit stars Andy Serkis and Toby Kebbell giving their best primate performances. Head below for the new poster. »
Earlier today, I spoke with Luke Evans about the Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, arriving on April 8. We also talked about his upcoming Dracula Untold, where he stars as the title character in this horror origin story that blends the true history of Vlad Tepes (a.k.a. Vlad the Impaler) with Bram Stoker's fictional and iconic vampire. With the film arriving in theaters this fall, I asked when we might see the first trailer for director Gary Shore's film, which he revealed we'll see attached to prints of Godzilla, opening in theaters May 16.
"You're going to see the first trailer on the back of Godzilla. I maybe should not have told you that, I don't know. I think that's the plan. Don't hold me to that, but I think that's the plan."
Of course, things may change between now and then, »
Another couple of Bts pics from Matt Reeves' 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' have been unveiled over at Empire. Once more they feature many of the main players kitted out in their motion capture uniforms ready for those tech wizards to overlay their monkey artistry over the top. The first of which comes with a brief description from star Andy Serkis (Caesar) which you can read below. The second snap features a group of MoCappers including another look at Toby Kebbell who plays Koba in the follow-up. The movie also stars Jason Clarke ('Zero Dark Thirty'), Gary Oldman ('Bram Stoker's Dracula'), Keri Russell ('Dark Skies') Kodi Smit-McPhee ('ParaNorman'), Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo ('Fringe') and Judy Greer ('Archer'). Check out the new pics below. »
Las Vegas - 2013 was the biggest year at the box office for Universal Pictures. They had surprise hits like "The Purge," the studio's highest grossing individual movie ever with "Despicable Me 2," and "Fast and Furious 6" opened to a staggering $97.3 million. The year also ended on a sad note, however, with the unexpected passing of "Fast and Furious" star Paul Walker during a production break from the seventh installment of the franchise. The sequel was pushed from its 2014 to 2015 release date to deal with re-shoots necessitated by Walker's death and many wondered how the studio would position the action blockbuster at its 2014 CinemaCon presentation to the world's theater owners. They ended up taking the ultra conservative approach and stuck to business. The footage from "Fast and Furious 7" finds Dominic (Vin Diesel), Brian (Walker) and their crew in the middle of another adventure. What the job is this time around wasn't clear from the preview, »

The film is set for release on 14 Aug 2015, a day before India’s Independence Day holiday. The date represents a shift away from a potential clash with an untitled Kabir Khan-directed star vehicle for muscle-man Salman Khan.
The story involves Khan playing with the notions of celebrity and will require many physical and facial changes.
