I have absolutely no idea why Douglas Aarniokoski’s “Nurse” movie decided to not only shoot in 3D (I’m assuming it was shot in 3D), but why it would officially slap the “3D” in the title. Really, it’s a movie about a nurse who kills unfaithful men, while lusting after Katrina Bowden. I don’t get it. (Okay, I get the lusting after Katrina Bowden part. She’s kinda purty.) But the whole 3D thing? Weird what movie producers thinks will sell tickets these days. Anyways. After two years in the making, the film has now officially gotten a trailer, which you can peep below. As for when you can indulge in this little “Single White Female”-ish thriller, it’s due out next year. Paz de la Huerta (HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”) turns up the body heat in this wickedly entertaining story of a fatal attraction. By day, »
Following the shiny, sexy and stylish teaser poster for the long delayed horror thriller Nurse 3D from Lionsgate, we finally have a teaser trailer for the film arriving next February. With a Single White Female vibe, this looks like a sultry but trashy movie that feels like a Skinemax movie that looks pretty. Paz De La Huerta leads the charge as a nurse who becomes obsessed with one of her co-workers (Katrina Bowden), but when she pulls away from her aggressive advances, that's when things get deadly. We suppose the rampant sex and nudity isn't a far cry from other horror movies, but it feels like 3D softcore porn. Watch? Here's the first trailer for Doug Aariniokoski's Nurse 3D, originally from Apple: Nurse 3D is directed by Doug Aariniokoski (The Day, Highlander: Endgame), who wrote the script with David Loughery (Obsessed, Lakeview Terrace). Abby Russell (Paz De La Huerta), by »

The hilarious and inspiring story of how a mysterious misfit got past every roadblock in the Hollywood system to achieve success on his own terms: a $6 million cinematic catastrophe called The Room.
Anyone who has seen Tommy Wiseau's The Room will have had questions. Many, many questions. It's a move that asks so many questions that even on repeated viewings, you're no closer to answers. Well, ten years after the fact, Greg Sestero (who played Mark in the movie) has given us some of the answers we've been looking for in his 'tell all' book The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made - a hilarious recount of one of the most baffling films ever committed to cinema.

Word has just come that a spine-chilling thriller in the tradition of Single White Female (didn't know she had a tradition), Besties, is coming to VOD January 21 from Phase 4 Films. Read on for details.
Written/directed by Rebecca Cutter, Besties features standout turns from Madison Riley (Grown Ups) and Olivia Crocicchia (Katy Gavin from TVs "Rescue Me"), with '90s icon Corin Nemec ("The Stand") co-starring.
Besties tells the story of two high school girls -- Sandy, a high school freshman and self-described loser, and Ashley, a sexy senior and Sandy's former babysitter. Sandy, hoping to forge a friendship with the most popular girl in school, arranges to be left at home under Ashley's supervision while her father goes out of town. Little does Sandy know that an unexpected visitor from Ashley's past will leave the awkward freshman and her idol tangled up in a manipulative and deadly friendship. »

There’s a new trailer for the latest film from Robert De Niro’s shingle, Tribeca Films, and Well Go USA Entertainment. It’s the first trailer to refer to the film by its new title, “The Truth About Emanuel.” When it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, where it was an Official Selection, earlier this year it was under the title, “Emanuel and The Truth About Fishes.”
The film’s stars include Jessica Biel and Alfred Molina, and it tells the tale of a troubled young woman who becomes obsessed with her neighbor (Biel), who reminds her of her dead mother. The trailer paints the film as a thriller with a “Single White Female” feel to it, but most of the press on the movie is that it’s more of a genre-crossing psychological piece.
On the film’s scope and tone, Tribeca Chief Creative Officer, Geoffrey Gilmore says: »

Last night Supernatural took a break from the angels and demons and did a very fun little screwball caper around the Men of Letters headquarters. Things kicked off with the discovery of a ridiculously antiquated computer straight from that Tracy/Hepburn film Desk Set. It had the vacuum tubes and the blinking lights. All it needed was a set of punch cards for an operating system.
Dean calls in their cute lesbian hacker pal Charlie (Felicia Day) to try and get the thing working again. She uses her Surface Rt to troubleshoot. (That loud thud you heard was a product placement.) In the course of repairs, Dean knocks over what looks like either a relic borrowed from Warehouse 13… or the actual Bottle City of Candor. Whatever it is, the busted bottle releases Dorothy and the Wicked Witch who had been trapped within for seventy five years. »

Walsh, who has served on the panel since its inception nine years ago, claimed in August that he will not be on the show in 2014, but later played down his potential exit.
Speaking to Digital Spy this week at pop-up pub The Magners Arms, Flack said that she couldn't picture The X Factor without Walsh.
"I don't think it will be [his final year]," she commented. "I don't think it'll be the same without Louis. He's like part of the furniture, ain't he?"
Flack also tipped Nicole Scherzinger, who is mentoring the girls, to win the show for a second consecutive year.
"I wouldn't be surprised if Nicole got the double whammy and won again," she said. "There's something in her. She's just amazing.
"She's a girl's girl. It's impossible to fall out with Nicole, »

Football: Celtic v Barcelona
Handed a daunting Champions League group of Ajax, AC Milan (who defeated them 2-0 in week one) and tonight's opponents, Celtic's chances of qualification are likely to rest on their performances at Parkhead. Barcelona's campaign started with a 4-0 victory over Ajax, but they should not underestimate Neil Lennon's team: it's less than 12 months since their shock defeat to Celtic at this very venue. Over on Sky there's live coverage of Arsenal v Napoli and Chelsea's visit to Steaua Bucharest. Gwilym Mumford

She did what to the t-shirt?! Denver Bronco's wide receiver Eric Decker and country pop singer Jessie James reveal some really strange fan moments and some of their favorite things. Jessie has a strong female following that love her makeup and hair tutorials, but when it comes to getting that "Jessie James look", one fan took it a little too far... "She copied every single detail. A little Single White Female," Jessie explained. "But bless her heart, I still think she's sweet." Aw, even after bizarre moments she still loves her fans. Eric reveals that his favorite show is SportsCenter (no surprise there!) but Jessie thinks it's another show...one that she's »
After joining Jason Statham for the abysmal action thriller Parker earlier this year, "American Idol" judge Jennifer Lopez has found a potentially more promising film to shoot before the reality show returns in 2014. Variety reports Lopez will lead The Boy Next Door, the next micro-budget film from Paranormal Activity and The Purge producer Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions banner. The story follows a mother, recently separate from her husband, who sparks an inappropriate affair with a teenage neighbor boy, a friend of her own son. However, the relationship turns out to be more than she can handle. Read on! When the woman tries to abruptly end the relationship, the boy stirs up trouble in her life. Sounds like some Single White Female type action here, and while it sounds wholly familiar, hopefully with Blum's involvement as a producer, we're looking at a solid thriller to join his other successes. »

Based on the Fyodor Dostoyevsky novella The Double, the latest from director Richard Ayoade (who did 2010's Submarine and co-starred in last summer's The Watch) stars Jesse Eisenberg and presumably follows the book's paranoid protagonist, who goes mad obsessing over the idea that his co-worker has stolen his identity. A total pushover, he repeatedly meets the man who is his exact double and yet, personality-wise, his opposite in every other way. Basically, Jesse Eisenberg is going to update what we refer to as Single White Female–ing. And it's going to be totally creepy. »

There's long been a hidden link between Hollyoaks and horror. Here are 10 actors who've made the jump from soap to gore...
Nb: This article contains spoilers.
There’s a moment in one of comedian Simon Amstell’s stand up shows where he recounts a conversation he once had with the executive producer of Channel 4 soap opera Hollyoaks. Trading on the commonly held opinion that Hollyoaks is “rubbish”, Amstell enquired as to why the producer didn’t try to make it better. The answer came that they did make it better, but people stopped watching.
Even by the not-so-great standards that soaps are measured, Hollyoaks has always been firmly towards the bottom of the ladder. The fictional Chester suburb where the majority of inhabitants are extraordinarily good looking but also extraordinarily stupid has been identified by its often wildly outlandish storylines and impossibly pretty people. »

After kicking off The Twilight Saga, director Catherine Hardwicke has thankfully fallen away from vampire melodrama and taken to an erotic thriller with some rock flare. Plush has an almost Single White Female vibe to it as rising rock star Hayley (Emily Browning) loses her band mate and brother to a drug overdose, and finds her new band crashing and burning, only to take solace in a hopefuly new friendship with Enzo (Xavier Samuel), the replacement guitarist. However, their relationship begins to push boundaries, and Enzo might not be the charmer he seems as his dark and troubled history is slowly revealed. Now we have some first look photos featuring Browning as a pretty sexy rock star and more. Look! Here are the first photos from Catherine Hardwicke's Plush from the film's official website: After losing her band mate and brother to a drug overdose, and seeing her new band fail critically and commercially, »

An explicit sex scene in a new film only highlights the problems Nigeria's film industry has with Lgbt representation
It's not exactly Brokeback Mountain. They look like they're having more fun, for starters – one guy bent over a deluxe sofa getting rogered by his mate: "Yeah! You know I'm a bad boy!"
It's no tearjerking "I wish I knew how to quit you", but it is a tiny piece of history: one of Nollywood's handful of gay sex scenes. It kicks off the film Pregnant Hawkers in typically unapologetic Nollywood style; surprisingly explicit for a country where homosexual sex is still illegal and punishable by death in some states.
Reactions have been, shall we say, mixed. "I'm speechless – are we supposed to accept this trend?" said one blogger. A forum commenter: "This is not good for Nollywood – salt in the wound." Another: "It's time for sympathetically and affirmatively drawn gay characters in Nollywood. »

There are faint echoes of Single White Female and Heavenly Creatures in this oestrogen-fuelled thriller, an update of a French film based on Sébastien Japrisot's cult '60s novel. Tuppence Middleton and Alexandra Roach play childhood friends who reconnect in their 20s and become unhealthily entwined in each other's lives, but so many twists and turns lead to nowhere.
A fiery explosion at the start belies the deeply somnolent mood that follows when Micky (Middleton) wakes up in the burns unit and fails to recognise herself. She has incurred a head injury after throwing herself from the window of the French farmhouse where she used to spend summers with her aunt (an underused Frances de la Tour) and a little girl called Do.
Micky struggles to »
Considering that the majority of films released nowadays feature men in their leading roles, it’s a pleasant change to see indie feature Compulsion switching it up. Not content with one actress, there’s the delight of both Heather Graham and Carrie-Anne Moss co-starring in this upcoming thriller from director Egidio Coccimiglio.
A remake of the Korean film 301, 302, Compulsion ties together the obsessive habits of two women living in the same apartment building. Graham plays Amy, a gourmet chef with the desire to make every evening meal spectacular, twisting her culinary affection into a scheme to manipulate those around her. Upon meeting her new neighbour, Saffron, who turns out to be a child star she once adored, she launches a campaign to win over the former actress.

Chicago – Long-delayed stateside, premiering On Demand, stupidly retitled (it was and still should be just “Alyce”), Jay Lee’s twisted trip down the rabbit hole of sanity, “Alyce Kills,” was not high on my list of anticipated films. Much to my surprise, “Alyce Kills” is a riveting slice of weird, a tale that reminds me of great films like “Repulsion” and “May” more than most of the junk that falls through the genre cracks and ends up in a similar launch pattern. It’s ten times better than most horror movies that will hit the multiplex this year. Genre fans will eat it up.
Alyce (Jade Dornfeld) is unstable but the kind of mousy, harmless unstable that you might sit next to on your commute to work and barely notice. There are little hints of personality disorder but the fact that her ring tone is “Crazy Train” is supposed »
