With the advent of the Internet, postmodernism found the perfect vessel. Today, a few clicks and an enter button can thrust you into any realm you so chose – along with a wink and plenty of ironic air quotations. This practice hasn’t solely applied to the common consumer either; tastemakers and artists have also sought this chic alternative in their works. Charlie Kaufman writes about his fictional self in Adaptation (2002), dreams become genres within themselves in Inception (2010), and a super- (anti-) hero mocks comic book movies in next year’s Deadpool.
It’s become so ingrained in the cinema of today that thinking back to a time before deconstructive art becomes a postmodern practice within itself. But we have to keep reminding ourselves what the archetypes of each genre are, otherwise it’s easy to miss the irony and just absorb the quotations. This was something that the late, great »

Most Likely to Die, 2015
Directed by Anthony Diblasi
A group of former classmates gather for a pre-party at one of their homes the night before their 10-year high school reunion, and one by one, they are brutally slain in a manner befitting each’s senior yearbook superlative.
After the release of Wes Craven’s Scream in 1996, the slasher genre (which was effectively dead by the mid-80s) received a resurgence and many imitators came to our screens like I Know What You Did Last Summer, Cherry Falls and Urban Legend. During this time, screenwriter Laura Brennan wrote a screenplay called Most Likely to Die, which remained undeveloped as the subgenre once again died out. Now, nearly 20 years later, it’s been brought to us by Missionary director Anthony Diblasi, »

When I think of teen thriller/horror movies, the classics immediately come to mind: Carrie, Friday the 13th, the first I Know What You Did Last Summer and even Scream had its moments but there's another breed of teen thrillers that seems to be overlooked - sometimes because they're cheesy, sometimes because the premise sounds ludicrous so there's way the movie is going to be any good and sometimes, they're just plain bad.
With the Bret Easton-Ellis scripted The Curse of Downers Grove (trailer) opening on Friday in select theatres and digital HD, I was thinking about some of these less popular teen horror thrillers and I must admit, I really like a lot of movies that fall into this grey space wh [Continued ...] »
Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.
Without further ado, here's what's coming up...
One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »

It's good to see you again, Jennifer Love Hewitt! On Saturday, the 36-year-old I Know What You Did Last Summer actress was photographed for the first time since giving birth to her second child, son Atticus James Hallisay, five weeks earlier. Jennifer kept her look casual, opting for a printed tunic, skinny jeans and wedge booties for a walk with a friend in L.A. Jennifer is also mom to daughter Autumn James Hallisay, 20 months. It's too soon to start thinking about Baby No. 3, but according to Jennifer, she wants a big family.

Freddie Prinze Jr. is a hands-on dad! The actor took to Twitter on Tuesday to share some new photos of his adorable daughter Charlotte kicking some butt in the gym.

Blumhouse has always been a studio that I have been wary on. I’m not the hugest fan of the Paranormal Activity franchise, with the exception of Paranormal Activity 3. The Purge films are ok for what they are but I guess the highest ranking films from the company would be Insidious and Sinister. Unless, you want to count Whiplash – which could be conceived as a psychological horror film. Regardless, I’m glad there is a studio doing what Blumhouse does.
The Gallows documents a group of teenagers who sneak into the school at night to sabotage a stage play of the same name that has a tragic past. As you could probably guess, the stage play has a noose in it and the tragedy would be a kid was accidentally killed during the production back in 1993. For some stupid reason, the school and the drama teacher allow a new »

Horror filmmakers have a special fondness for shedding teenage blood.
After all, teens are horror's primary audience, so it's especially frightening -- and cathartic -- to see teens like themselves targeted by deadly evil, often just for behaving like normal adolescents. In the last four decades, movies about teens targeted by slashers have become the mainstay of movie horror.
With "The Gallows" hitting theaters this Friday -- a teen horror movie with echoes of "Carrie," "Prom Night," "I Know What You Did Last Summer," and more -- it's worth looking back at some of the most celebrated teen horror movies of all time. Just remember, don't separate from the group, and don't have sex.

Anyone remember Party of Five? Exactly the same as Dawson’s Creek but without those homely qualities of a Katie Holmes or Michelle Williams. It aired on Channel Four in the Nineties, convincing Miramax producers that casting Neve Campbell in Scream was a good idea. Providing her with a means to pay the mortgage for twenty years and three subsequent sequels.
Initially championed by Wes Craven maker of original Nightmares on Elm Street. Scream was touted as a revisionist reinvention. That most post-modern of commodities known as the tongue in cheek slasher movie. A nudge, nudge, wink, wink wake up call for an outdated genre. Written by Kevin Williamson who went on to pen The Faculty for Robert Rodriguez, Scream is still heralded as a benchmark today. Spawning numerous copycat flicks including I Know What You Did Last Summer, »
