'Hellions' Trailer Unleashes Trick-or-Treaters from Hell
We're slowly creeping into the fall season, with the last of the big budget summer tentpoles fading from the multiplex. Soon, it will be October, and that means it's time for some scary movies. Earlier today, we got a sneak peek at the The Witch, which looks terrifying. Now, we get the first trailer for Hellions, and it seems destined to become a Halloween classic!

In Hellions, a teenager's Halloween night turns into a terrifying fight to survive when trick-or-treaters from Hell show up at her doorstep. After getting the unwelcome news that she's pregnant, seventeen-year-old Dora (Chloe Rose) just wants to stay in on Halloween. But then a knock at the door delivers a gaggle of pint-sized demons after one thing: Dora's baby. Director Bruce McDonald unleashes a hallucinatory visual and auditory assault that propels&#160Hellions&#160to increasingly disturbing realms of terror. Robert Patrick co-stars.

Memories from the Set: Eric McCormack Talks Roles on Ally McBeal, Outer Limits, Will & Grace and More
A recurring feature in which we ask your favorite stars to reminisce about past gigs

In his nearly 30 years on television, Perception star Eric McCormack has played a spaceman, a Confederate colonel, a handful of lawyers and a dog, among other characters. But the through line that led to his best-known role started quite early, on an ABC dramedy not known for its edginess.

Doctor Blood’S Coffin – The DVD Review

The fine folks at the MGM Limited Edition DVD-r dove deep into their vaults to present a groovy sixties ghoulfest on DVD for all you fear fans. Doctor Blood’S Coffin was a staple of late night TV and horror hosts for several decades ( Chicago’s Svengoolie featured it 1998 ). It’s bright color photography made it a valuable asset to stations wanting a break from the black and white classics. Of course Coffin may owe its existence to the success of Hammer Films’ color fright fests of the late 1950′s. After the box office numbers generated by these new takes on Frankenstein and Dracula, many other British studios wanted a piece of the growing thriller audience. Caralan Productions even went as far as hiring the beautiful ( and buxom ) Hazel Court ( Peter Cushing’s doomed love from Hammer’s hit The Curse Of Frankenstein ) as the leading lady. Perhaps due to budgetary constraints,

Eric McCormack Barricades Himself From Evil Dark Forces

Here’s something most people don’t know: before he became really famous in the sitcom “Will and Grace”, Eric McCormack sported a full beard, a Southern accent, and played a bad guy turned sorta-not all that bad a guy in a little-seen TV Western series called “Lonesome Dove: The Series”. The show was re-christened “Lonesome Dove: The Outlaw Years” in Season 2, and there was never a Season 3, much to my disappointment. I love me my Westerns. McCormack was so good in that role that if you were to see him on the show, and compare him to his roles now, you wouldn’t think you were looking at the same person. Anyways, McCormack may or may not have grown back the beard for his latest movie, the supernatural flick “Barricade”, which he’ll be fronting for WWE Studios, the same studio behind all those movies starring their wrestlers that

Dennis Weaver: 1924-2006

Dennis Weaver: 1924-2006
Dennis Weaver, the laconic actor who became a TV star first as the sidekick Chester in Gunsmoke and then as the leading man of 70s series McCloud, died of complications from cancer on Friday at his home in Colorado; he was 81. A struggling actor in the early 50s who appeared onstage in A Streetcar Named Desire and Come Back, Little Sheba, Weaver got his big break in the nascent medium of television by auditioning in 1955 for the small part of Chester in the new CBS series Gunsmoke. Giving his character a unique, humorous accent and a limp (neither of which were specified in the original script), Weaver easily won the part, and fame as well as an Emmy award (in 1959) followed during his nine-year run on the show. After leaving Gunsmoke, a number of TV series appearances followed, including the boy-and-his-bear show Gentle Ben (1967-69) and the cult classic Duel (1971), directed by a then little-known filmmaker named Steven Spielberg. The thriller, about a man terrorized by the unseen driver of a large truck, put the fledgling Spielberg on the map and showcased Weaver in one of his best performances (the movie was theatrically released in 1983). Weaver's most notable role in the 70s, however, was as rural country Sheriff Sam McCloud in the detective series McCloud, which ran from 1970-77. Playing a New Mexico detective clashing with the New York police department, Weaver solved crimes weekly with his laid-back style, and received two Emmy nominations during the show's run. After McCloud, Weaver worked continuously on television, with notable roles in the 70s miniseries Centennial and Pearl, the acclaimed TV movie Amber Waves (opposite Kurt Russell and a young Mare Winningham), and Lonesome Dove: The Series, where he played Buffalo Bill Cody; Weaver's most recent appearance was in ABC Family series Wildfire. President of the Screen Actors Guild from 1973-75, Weaver was also a committed environmentalist, and spoke on behalf of the cause to both the United Nations and Congress; he and his wife, Gerry, also built their home in Colorado out of recycled materials. In addition to his wife, Weaver is survived by two sons, actor Robby Weaver and actor-producer Rick Weaver. --Prepared by IMDb staff
