'Search Party' Season 2: TV Review

When TBS' Search Party premiered last fall, I went out on an intellectual limb and described the tone-hopping series as "Michelangelo Antonioni's L'Avventura as a Brooklyn-set single-camera comedy."

Season two is premiering on Sunday (November 19) night (with two episodes, rather than in its entirety) and, to go out on less of an intellectual limb, I'd say the first six episodes of the new arc are more like a hipster comic version of I Know What You Did Last Summer, a bit like HBO's Bored to Death if somebody had, literally, been bored to death and the other characters had...

Scream Queen Jennifer Love Hewitt's Quiet Life: Inside Her World Out of the Hollywood Spotlight

Scream Queen Jennifer Love Hewitt's Quiet Life: Inside Her World Out of the Hollywood Spotlight
Jennifer Love Hewitt is off the grid. Well, not the grid-grid. She's still a proponent of electricity and internet service, and she even joined Instagram in August. But since appearing on Criminal Minds for one season, she has taken a decisive step back from the Hollywood scene, focusing on family life with husband Brian Hallisay and their two young children, daughter Autumn and son Atticus. We couldn't help but think of the actress this month when the 20th anniversary of I Know What You Did Last Summer scared us all over again on Oct. 17—and just in time for Halloween. Hewitt marked the nostalgic milestone on social media but otherwise didn't pop up to...

Your Alternative Halloween Viewing Guide: Hidden Horror Gems to Make Movie Night Frighteningly Fun
Every Halloween, when you want to check out a horror movie to get your heart racing, or a hilarious scary movie send-up to celebrate the holiday with laughs, everybody seems to cycle back to some of the same old classics.

While the slasher movies we've all come to know and love are classics for a reason (see: Halloween, I Know What You Did Last Summer or Scream), it’s fun to dive a little deeper into the realm of obscure horror, where some of the truly great fright flicks hide in the shadows.

Check out Et’s suggestions for some of the great lesser-known gems of spooky cinema with this year's alternative Halloween viewing guide:

The ‘Halloween’ Franchise Ranked From the Worst to Best Slash

The ‘Halloween’ Franchise Ranked From the Worst to Best Slash
There was no way to predict that a low-budget, independent horror movie with a no-name cast would go on to become one of the most influential films in cinematic history. But 40 years ago, John Carpenter built the framework for one of the most successful franchises ever and helped create the “slasher” genre with the 1978 smash Halloween.

In the ensuing years, Michael Myers (aka The Shape) became one of culture’s preeminent boogeymen, Carpenter’s haunting theme continued to set an ominous mood and the fictional town of Haddonfield dealt with a serious body count problem. While the motivations for Michael’s actions grew more convoluted, he remained a terrifying force four decades later.

Now, with a new Halloween in the works from director David Gordon Green and writer Danny McBride, featuring original star Jamie Lee Curtis as the ultimate survivor, Et decided it was time to look back on the franchise to determine which film is a dull

‘Tragedy Girls’: The Cast Reveals How the Film Is Every Family’s Worst Nightmare (Exclusive)

‘Tragedy Girls’: The Cast Reveals How the Film Is Every Family’s Worst Nightmare (Exclusive)
How far would you go for social media followers? It’s a question many millennials have probably asked themselves -- but hopefully, they won’t go as far as the leads of the upcoming horror-comedy Tragedy Girls.

The film tells the story of two death-obsessed teenage girls who embark on a killing spree in their small town to draw attention to their social media accounts, and its two stars, Brianna Hildebrand and Alexandra Shipp, spoke with Et about how frighteningly close to reality this concept is.

“I don’t think it’s that far-fetched,” Shipp admitted. “I think this generation is moving toward something like this in a sense.”

“It definitely says a lot about the power of social media,” Hildebrand agreed. “It is definitely not too far off to think a young person would do something like this for likes and attention.”

“I think it only takes one person to go that far,” Shipp added.

I Know What You Did Last Summer Turns 20: See the Cast Then and Now
Just in time for Halloween, I Know What You Did Last Summer turned 20. Directed by Jim Gillespie, the classic slasher movie was a big break for many stars. For instance, Johnny Galecki, who played Max Neurick in the film, went on to star as Leonard Hofstadter in the hit series The Big Bang Theory, and Sarah Michelle Gellar, who played Helen Shivers, went on to play Buffy Summers in the popular TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It was also a big film for stars Ryan Phillippe, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Freddie Prinze Jr. Besides launching some of these stars' careers, the movie sparked a bit of romance. Prinze, who played Ray Bronson, ended up marrying Gellar in 2002. Although the two didn't play...

‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’: Looking Back on the Slasher Classic 20 Years Later

‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’: Looking Back on the Slasher Classic 20 Years Later
With Halloween quickly approaching, horror fans everywhere are in search of the next great scary movie. While 2017 has been a phenomenal year for the genre -- with standouts like Split, Annabelle: Creation, It and Get Out -- audiences need only to look back on the late ’90s slasher era for some of horror’s best thrills.

The genre was more popular than ever thanks to the colossal success of Scream in 1996, with almost every major film studio attempting to recreate that same magic. Soon, everything from Urban Legends to a new installment of Halloween with Jamie Lee Curtis followed. Between 1996 and 2000, the horror genre was at an all-time high. So high, it almost became hard to keep track of them all.

But one slasher film in particular stands out among the rest: I Know What You Did Last Summer, which came out 20 years ago on Oct. 17, 1997.

It’s not all that surprising, given the screenplay

‘Megyn Kelly Today’ Premiere: Unremarkable Start Leaves Viewers Wondering What’s The Point of All This

‘Megyn Kelly Today’ Premiere: Unremarkable Start Leaves Viewers Wondering What’s The Point of All This
Psst, Megyn Kelly: I know what you did last summer. And last year. And the year before that.

NBC’s attempt to give the former Fox News host an extreme non-partisan makeover got off to a bumpy start earlier this year, as Kelly’s primetime newsmagazine “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” drew fire for lackluster chats with Vladimir Putin and Alex Jones, both controversial figures intent on undermining American democracy.

It was a lose-lose situation for Kelly, who has alienated both sides of the political aisle: The left, by years of race baiting on Fox News; the right, by disavowing those Fox years (ironically, just before racism became a cornerstone of the new presidential administration).

Video: 5 Best Teenage Slasher Movies

Everyone loves a good slasher movie. It’s got everything a movie lover wants- dumb teenagers with hormones and serial killers who are bent on finding them. Plus, lots and lots of bad decisions. It’s like a game of cat and mouse only most of the time the mouse loses. With that in mind, we would like to share with you five of the best slasher movies around.

5. I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)

While this movie didn’t get many favorable reviews, Jim Gillespie’s I Know What You Did Last Summer has all the elements of a slasher film. Clueless teenagers and a relentless killer.

‘Wish Upon’ review: Dir. John R. Leonetti (2017)

Wish Upon review: John R. Leonetti cautions ‘be careful what you wish for’ in new teen-centric horror, Wish Upon.

Wish Upon review by Kat Hughes.

Wish Upon Review

Teenagers used to be the chosen kill subject in near enough all mainstream horror cinema, from Friday the 13th and Halloween, to Scream and Valentine, audiences couldn’t get enough of scared teenagers. In recent years however, things have shifted to a more mature protagonist, or failing that, a family. The likes of Insidious, The Conjuring and Sinister all focus on families being tormented by all manner of ghastly things. It’s been a while since teens have really taken centre stage, but new movie Wish Upon seeks to return to what has come before.

Joey King stars as Clare, a teenage girl from the wrong side of suburbia whom has never gotten over her mother’s death. She lives with her

Trailer & new images from teen horror ‘Wish Upon’

From the director of Annabelle and starring Joey King (The Conjuring), Ryan Phillippe (I Know What You Did Last Summer), Shannon Purser (Barb from Stranger Things) and Sydney Park (The Walking Dead), Wish Upon is a wickedly chilling story about an alluring object imbued with sinister and dangerous powers, a cautionary tale that takes the ‘be careful what you wish for’ theme to frightening new levels…

17-year-old Clare Shannon (King) is barely surviving the hell that is high school, along with her friends, Meredith (Park) and June (Purser). So, when her dad (Phillippe) gifts her an old music box with an inscription that promises to grant the owner’s wishes, she thinks there is nothing to lose. Clare makes her first wish and, to her surprise, it comes true. Before long, she finally has it all: money, popularity and her dream boy. Everything seems perfect—until the people closest to

Video Interview: Ryan Phillippe Talks Wish Upon & Reflects on the 20th Anniversary of I Know What You Did Last Summer

  • DailyDead
Out in theaters this weekend is John R. Leonetti’s Wish Upon, which follows a teenager named Clare (Joey King), who is gifted with a mysterious box that has the ability to grant the owner seven wishes. The only catch is that for each wish granted, a blood sacrifice is required, and Clare is unable to stop a series of horrific and violent deaths that follow. Unwilling to give up the ideal life she finally gets to lead, Clare finds herself spiraling out of control as her obsession with the magical box grows deeper.

In Wish Upon, Ryan Phillippe plays Clare’s father, a working-class single dad who makes ends meet by going through dumpsters to find scraps and other valuables he can either repurpose or sell for cash. During the recent press day for Wish Upon, Phillippe discussed how the struggles his character Jonathan faces were something that hearkened back to his own life,
