To celebrate Mother's Day we're taking a look at our 5 favourite mother/daughter acting duos who've made a name for themselves in Hollywood.
Not only are these two mother and daughter but they've had some of the most iconic female roles in horror movie history. Janet Leigh was a bonafide scream queen from the late 1950's up until the early 1980's. She starred in Touch of Evil, The Fog, and of course Psycho for which she received an Oscar nomination. Jamie Lee Curtis first gained mainstream attention with her portrayal of Laurie in John Carpenter's Halloween which sparked a multi-decade franchise. She has since solidified herself among Hollywood greats with Freaky Friday, True Lies, and A Fish Called Wanda.
Here's another pairing with »

Coming soon to a VOD platform or Walmart near you is Boone The Bounty Hunter , and it’s one you definitely should be checking out. You don’t even need to be like me, a person who loves movies starring wrestlers and good old 90s-style action, to have a good time watching it.
John Hennigan is our star / producer / co-writer. After graduating from college with a film degree, he wrestled for WWE under the names Johnny Nitro and John Morrison, and he was pretty good at it; he now works for Aaa (a Mexico-based promotion) and Lucha Underground (the MTV wrestling show). But he’s always had a passion for the same sorts of movies I love – 80s / 90s comic action, kung fu, chase movies – and given the chance, he’s made this.
He plays Boone, a TV bounty hunter – his resemblance to any famous TV »

Funny or Die released a prank video inspired by Alice Lowe's very funny Prevenge, and we have it for Daily Dead readers to watch. Also in today's Horror Highlights: a new clip from The Black Room and details on the extension of the play Sirens of Titan at Sacred Fools Theater in Los Angeles.
Check Out Funny or Die's Prevenge Prank Video: "A pitch black, wryly British horror comedy from the mind of Alice Lowe (“Sightseers,” “Hot Fuzz,” “Paddington”) that’s as funny as it is vicious, Prevenge follows Ruth, a pregnant woman on a killing spree. It's her misanthropic unborn baby dictating Ruth's actions, holding society responsible for the absence of a father. The child speaks to Ruth from the womb, coaching her to lure and ultimately kill her unsuspecting victims. Struggling with her conscience, loneliness, and a strange strain of prepartum madness, Ruth must ultimately choose between »

There’s a moment early on in “Captain Fantastic” where Viggo Mortensen’s Ben Cash, still reeling from the news of his wife’s suicide, addresses his children on the matter. “Last night mommy killed herself,” he says, “she finally did it.” The bluntness hits like a shock to the system.
It won’t be the last we encounter Ben’s child-rearing directness. Over the course of the film, he sticks firmly to his “no lying” mantra, going as far as to tell his young daughter about sexual intercourse after she asks. But that initial encounter is critical. As played by the extraordinary Mortensen, it’s a moment of deep tragedy. He gives the line a no-nonsense edge that proves euphemisms don’t run in this family, but his swelling eyes hint at how crippling that can be. It’s at this moment that “Captain Fantastic” asks its big question: »
