My 5: Screamfest Ambassador Dominic Monaghan’s Top Horror Films

10 October 2017 9:42 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

“There is an excitement level about scary movies,” Dominic Monaghan tells Et about his fascination with the genre, and “if you do it right,” he says, “you tend to feel like you are screaming at the TV, trying to get the hero or the heroine to turn around or run away. It is an interactive experience that I enjoy most about it.”

While known for playing Charlie on ABC’s Lostand Merry in The Lord of the Rings film franchise, Monaghan has also starred in a couple of thrillers and horror-comedies, explaining that “the scary-ish movies that I have done up to now, I just based on my response to a good script.”

Mars Attacks: extra nerdy facts about the 1990s favourite

30 September 2017 3:21 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Den Of Geek Oct 1, 2017

Tim Burton's 1996 alien invasion movie Mars Attacks!, and some of the nerdy stuff behind it...

Coming off the back of arguably his most acclaimed film, the Oscar-winning Ed Wood, director Tim Burton returned to blockbuster movie territory, with his anarchic 1996 take on the Topps Tradiing Card series, Mars Attacks! He pulled together a cracking ensemble cast, and proceeded to take real glee in having them dispatched by aliens with a penchant for shooting birds of peace out of the sky, and saying ‘ack!’ a lot. In fact, the  dialogue of ‘ack!’ was a placeholder in the screenplay penned by Jonathan Gems, and was never replaced. A wise move, that. Gems, goes the story, developed the screenplay for the film, and only when he was done did he realise the trading cards themselves came with their own story on the reverse side!

The Iconic Halloween Movie You Should Watch Tonight Based on Your Zodiac Sign

29 September 2017 10:25 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Trying to narrow down the perfect Halloween movie to watch come Fall is like attempting to decide which is better: candy corn or candy apples (it's obviously candy corn, but for the sake of this analogy, I'll let it slide). There are plenty of horror movies to choose from, as well as beloved childhood classics like Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare Before Christmas. What's a movie fan to do? Instead of hemming and hawing and just watching a Friends rerun because you can't make a decision, let your zodiac sign steer your festive night in instead.

‘Cold Moon’ Review

8 September 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Josh Stewart, Christopher Lloyd, Robbie Kay, Candy Clark, Frank Whaley, Tommy Wiseau, Madison Wolfe, Laura Cayouette | Written and Directed by Griff Furst

In a sleepy southern town, the Larkin family suffers a terrible tragedy. Now the Larkin’s are about to endure another: Traffic lights blink an eerie warning, a ghostly visage prowls in the streets, and graves erupt from the local cemetery in an implacable march of terror . . . And beneath the murky surface of the river, a shifting, almost human shape slowly takes form to seek a terrible vengeance.

At first glance Cold Moon looks like most other by the numbers horror/thrillers, with a cast of people you will recognize straight away but take a while to place where from. However give it a minute because this movie has some really stellar performances from the core cast which – considering the concept is just bonkers enough to take »

The Nightmare Before Christmas Is Getting a Sequel - Well, Sort Of

1 August 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Tokyopop, an anime and manga publishing company, announced that it has secured the necessary rights to create a follow-up comic book, titled The Nightmare Before Christmas: Zero's Journey. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the comic book will center on Jack Skellington's dog, Zero, as he explores Christmas Town. It will be written by Tokyopop founder Stuart Levy, while Studio Dice will produce the artwork. Fun fact: Studio Dice previously adapted Beauty and the Beast into a manga series. RelatedWhat's This?

I'm a little amazed that The Nightmare Before Christmas hasn't received a proper sequel, but I suppose that the film and its character have had no trouble living on past their 1993 debut thanks to the endless stream of merchandising centered around Jack Skellington, Sally, and the other residents of Halloween Town.
