The Kardashian and Jenner Ladies Get Spooky at Mason Disick's B-Day Party

16 November 2014 12:10 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Mason Disick had a birthday party straight out of a movie on Saturday. Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick's son, who turns 5 in December, was surrounded by his mom's famous sisters, including Khloé Kardashian and Kendall and Kylie Jenner, at an early celebration in La. Complete with Christmas trees covered in spiderwebs, the picture-perfect party captured the mood of Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. In a series of Instagram snaps, the group showed off the festive decorations and face makeup, courtesy of artist Joyce Bonelli. It's been about six months since reports of Kourtney's third child with Scott emerged. The reality star's pregnancy physique was front and center when she slipped into a bikini for some fun in the sun in September. The following month, she revealed her growing baby bump while treating her children, Mason and Penelope, to a day at the pumpkin patch. Meanwhile, Kourtney's sister Kendall »

The Kardashians sure love Halloween. The reality stars kept things spooky weeks after the horror-filled holiday to throw Kourtney Kardashian's son Mason an early birthday party Saturday. (He turns 5 on Dec. 14.) It seems the expectant mom was inspired by the family's trip to Disneyland: Friend and makeup artist Joyce Bonelli helped transform the guests into creepy characters from Tim Burton's classic The Nightmare Before Christmas. Kendall and Kylie Jenner both attended, but it was Koko (Khloé Kardashian) who really went all out for Mason. The dedicated aunt rocked a long red wig and fully painted face to go as the movie's heroine. »

Comikaze Cosplay Wrap Up

12 November 2014 5:02 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Stan Lee's Comikaze is a convention that is held every year in Los Angeles. It's not too big of a convention but still is jam packed with some great panels and events. Just this past year it was on Halloween weekend which made those cosplayers look even more spectacular.

The convention had a variety of panels including one of Stan Lee himself, the Game of Thrones cast, and the original 1960's "Batman" television series cast. Unfortuantely, Batman aka Adam West had the flu so he was unable to attend but Catwoman (Julie Newmar) and Robin (Burt Ward) were there. Ms. Newmar was a bit eccentric, wearing cat-ears and calling herself a "cat, but it was really entertaining. As a fan of the series, I was very excited to see them. The panel primarily promoted the release of the entire Batman series on DVD, it's available now!

I Have Never Seen ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’

3 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Ashe never got to see a ton of modern classics from his youth, so we’re making him watch them all as a nostalgia-less adult. Check out the inaugural article for more info. Halloween is over, so my Halloween movie mini-marathon is at an end. And I saved the best (by which I mean my wife’s favorite film) for last: The Nightmare Before Christmas. Yes, I’ve been with her for seven years and somehow managed to never see it. I am a good husband. (I love you, honey!) What’s weird is I’ve tried to watch it before, but something would always happen right after I started it. Someone would call with an emergency. The power would go out. One time I got insanely sick and passed out. (It turned out to be a really bad stomach flu.) This time, nothing horrible happened! That I know of. Anyway »

Daniel Radcliffe, Juno Temple Share Favorite Halloween Costumes at ‘Horns’ L.A. Premiere

31 October 2014 12:02 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Many in the cast and crew celebrated the Los Angeles premiere of “Horns” on Thursday by wearing Halloween costumes at the Arclight Hollywood. Some celebs’ outfits really made an impression, with the costumes ranging from a Roman god to skeletons to forest fairies.

Daniel Radcliffe and Juno Temple, the stars of the dark thriller, did not arrive to the carpet in costume. After seeing an especially elaborate costume, they joked with one another and Radcliffe said, “Oh, look he’s trumping us.”

Yes, Daniel Radcliffe is in this photo but the angel in the background stole the show #Horns pic.twitter.com/oBMuYqJ2E9

The costumes were a fitting complement to the film’s plot, which is rooted in religious and dark symbolism.

“The script was so original,” Radcliffe explained. “We live in a world with some very homogenous films and this was so distinct »

The 13 Worst Halloween Movies of All Time

31 October 2014 9:51 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Halloween is finally upon us, and a lot of you have been holding down your own horror movie marathons. We're sure you've included the classics, but not many of them actually take place on All Hallow's Eve. And the ones that do? Well, quite a few are not very good. John Carpenter's 1978 Halloween is of course a classic. 2009's Trick 'r Treat is a new perennial favorite that grows its cult base every year. And you simply can't go wrong with The Nightmare Before Christmas between now and New Year's Eve. But you may want to seek out new and interesting films that revolve around this terrifying treat-filled holiday. The following list of movies is not for you! This is a warning: Do not invite your friends over for the following 13 fright flicks, as they are the worst Halloween movies of all-time. That said, they are not without their merits. »

Halloween Twitches: Our Favorite Film Ghosts

31 October 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

(If there's something strange, in the neighborhood, who ya gonna call? Twitch!) As Jack Skellington's minions so gleefully sang in The Nightmare Before Christmas: "This is Halloween, this is Halloween, Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!". So we here at Twitch decided to have some of our writers tell about their favorite movie ghosts. Now this is in no way meant to be a comprehensive list, but just contains some personal stories, for fun's sake. Some will mention the scariest ghost they saw in the cinema, some will go for disturbing. Some go for emotional involvement, some take a wide definition and choose whatever haunted them the most... That means your own favorite ghost may not be in this list, but that is not because it would...

Halloween Live Shows: 7 Best Bets Around L.A.

31 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

At this time of the year we call it trick or treating, but any other time it would be called begging. So when you’re done begging for candy, (or eating the candy your kid begged for), don’t be afraid to take in a show. Or do be afraid cause most of them feature witches, ghouls and knife-wielding psychopaths. For a full list of events around Los Angeles this weekend, scroll on.

Bringing Hp Lovecraft to the big screen

31 October 2014 1:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Just in time for Halloween, James considers the weird tales of Hp Lovecraft, and the ones that could make great films...

(Warning: this article contains spoilers for several H.P. Lovecraft stories and also contains material that may upset the balance of your sanity. "Tekeli-li! Tekeli-li!")

Dear readers, I am writing this under an appreciable mental strain since by tonight I may be no more. The end is near and soon will come the oblivion which is my only refuge from the unnamed and unnameable. Hallowmas has arrived and I hear the howling from that awful reef, the horrible croaking voices and the slippery bodies lumbering against the door.

The nauseous fishy odour seems to have mounted suddenly, the shrill whippoorwills have burst into a kind of pandaemoniac cachinnation which fills the countryside and I am certain that everything is coming to a head. Or, at least, a gibbering mockery of a head. »

My Favorite Halloween Movie: The Nightmare Before Christmas

29 October 2014 2:19 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

[Since Halloween is this week, Adam, Perri, and I decided to write a bit about the films we watch annually to celebrate the holiday.  Click here for Adam's pick.] My memory is a bit hazy, but I'm pretty sure The Nightmare Before Christmas was the first stop-motion animated film I ever saw.  I was used to 2D animation and had never seen the work of Ray Harryhausen and his ilk.  Then my parents took me to see the film, and Jack Skellington's sentiments regarding Christmas Town could have easily applied to my feelings about Henry Selick's masterpiece.  The movie that may not be scary, but it embodies the best aspects of a child's holiday traditions. For those who haven't seen the film (you monsters), it's about Jack Skellington (speaking voice by Chris Sarandon and singing voice by composer Danny Elfman), the "Pumpkin King" of Halloween Town who has grown tired with the annual celebration.  After a night of despondently walking through the woods, he comes across a collection of trees.  Each one has a door and the door corresponds to a specific holiday. »
