Looking at actor Meg Foster’s resume brought on a feeling of disbelief for me. I know her as a sci-fi and horror genre icon. Most people in my circle know her from such films as They Live, Masters of the Universe, Stepfather II, and Oblivion as well as TV shows like Xena: Warrior Princess, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Sliders.
Ms. Foster adds another notch in her horror belt with Rob Zombie’s new film The Lords of Salem. She portrays Margaret Morgan, the head of a coven of witches who are burned at the stake because of their heresy. She curses the women of the town of Salem, Massachusetts and swears to »

If Charles Band were a pro wrestler, I’d like to think his entrance music would be Metallica’s “Master of Puppets”. Four new little beasties will be added to his repertoire when Unlucky Charms begins filming any moment now.
Five girls vie for a chance to model diva Deedee DeVille’s fashion line, but they’re soon competing for their lives against four mythical beings, led by the mischievous Farr Darrig. Deedee wants to steal the girls’ souls, but the beings have other plans…
Falling prey to these latest pint-sized predators from the Puppet Master maestro will be Charlie O'Connell (“Sliders”, 2-Headed Shark Attack), Jeryl Prescott Sales (“The Walking Dead”, The Skeleton Key), Anna Sophia Berglund (Playboy Playmate January 2011, “The Girls Next Door”), Seth Peterson (“Burn Notice”, “Providence”), Masuimi Max (xXx: State of the Union, The Devil's Muse), and Nikki Leigh (Playboy Playmate May 2012, Blood of 1000 Virgins).

It was the first thing on everyone's mind after the Veronica Mars movie made over $3 million in approximately 22 seconds: what's next? If there's anything Hollywood likes it's a trend. And getting fans to pay more for their movies. Combine the two and we're on the rain-slick precipice of falling into a world where every cancelled TV show gets a second shot on the silver screen. Thankfully Funny or Die has given us a glimpse into what that world might look like. And you know what? It's kind of glorious. Why not let Reginald VelJohnson pitch Taken 3: Family Matters? Who can deny Jerry O'Connell the joy of bringing to life all of the wacky Sliders universes he dreams about every night? Do any of us really want to live in a world without those...

After finding out that "Veronica Mars" was able to raise enough money on KickStarter to make a feature film, lots of other shows are attempting to raise money for their own movies. Thanks to FunnyOrDie, we now have April Fools videos of Jerry O'Connell pitching a "Sliders" movie, as well as Reginald VelJohnson pitching a "Family Matters" movie, which will apparently be like "Taken." Check out the videos below, as well as pitches for Darkwing Duck, Dinosaurs, Wings. Sliders: Family Matters: »
This year Funny or Die pranked us with an April Fools joke that would get any lover of the 90s excited followed by immediate letdown. Creating the faux site Kickstart of Die for our favorite dated 90s shows like "Wings," "Sliders," "Dinosaurs," "Family Matters," and "Darkwing Duck," Funny or Die gave us an enjoyable dose of nostalgia while also supporting real charities. On each of the show's fake Kickstarter pages the original casts come together in videos asking for help in turning their memorable shows into movies since, if "Veronica Mars" could do it, why not? In the "Wings" video the casts tell us that the film "Wings: Serenity" has already been partially shot, but still needs $60 million more to finish. But before you pledge your dollars just yet make sure to watch the exclusive clip from the unfinished film in which Steven Weber and Amy Yasbeck try to save »

From the instant Veronica Mars' Kickstarter campaign raised $2 million in less than 24 hours to make a feature film, every dearly departed TV show with a still-passionate fan following has been rumored for reboot.
