Freddie Prinze Jr. is pretty clear about why his 15-year marriage with Sarah Michelle Gellar has been so "cool and groovy," as he described it. E! News caught up with the actor who brought us back to the beginnings of their relationship way back when they were filming I Know What You Did Last Summer in 1997. "We were just friends. That's one of the reasons I think our relationship has always been so good," he admitted. "We were just friends for a good two years before we ever went on a date. She knew what kind of guy I was. She knew what my morals were, what my priorities were and visa versa. We already kind of knew all the faults in the other person." He continued, »
Sometimes, TV horror is the perfect medium for a particular kind of story. Perhaps a story that doesn’t rely on effects or sensationalism to affect the viewer; a tale that works in a simple, straightforward way, dealing with all too common emotions experienced by the regular teenage mind. To wit, Summer of Fear (1978) Aka Stranger in Our House, a chiller directed by the late legend Wes Craven based on the bestselling Ya novel of the same name by Lois Duncan (I Know What You Did Last Summer). It’s a breezy thrill ride that also shows Craven could successfully work in the mainstream.
Originally airing Halloween night on NBC under the Stranger title as one of their The Big Event titles, its toughest competition was ABC’s Three’s Company/Taxi/Starsky and Hutch dynamo. But no worries, if you needed a horror fix on Halloween night, this is what you were watching. »

“Well, there's nobody who didn't have a horrible high school experience except for, like, one guy I met once,” Joss Whedon said while sitting down with Et on the set of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in 1997.
At the time, the show was in production on its second season, with everyone -- including stars Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy), David Boreanaz (Angel) and Alyson Hannigan (Willow) -- returning to work on a bona fide hit for The WB. Whedon summed up his own high school experience as “constant humiliation and rejection,” an apt time period for a TV horror series. (Note: This was probably before they ever met, but I still like to believe the “one guy” he was referring to is Nathan Fillion.)
“I thought it would make a good show,” Whedon said. “I thought, I'll make a show about high school that's a horror movie just as my high school was, and that's »
The original Jeepers Creepers came out way back in 2001 and helped revive the idea of creature feature horror movies. At the time, there were a lot of teen slashers like Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer occupying the box office. Jeepers Creepers 2 followed a couple of years later. Despite the fact that both movies were successful, a third installment never managed to get going. That changes now because Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral has officially started filming.
According to a report from Bloody Disgusting, Jeepers Creepers 3 has officially started production in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Director Victor Salva, who helmed the first two installments, is returning to the director's chair this time around. Jonathan Breck is also expected to reprise his role as the Creeper. Recently, it was reported that Gina Phillips' character Trish, who was one of the main characters in the first Jeepers Creepers alongside »
