Finals Week: 'Gender Roles in Scary Movies'

14 December 2009 2:31 PM, PST | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

Welcome to Finals Week, inspired by real life college finals! We'll have a new academic paper on horror films every day this week!

Gender Roles within Scary Movies by Alex Boles

“What’s your favorite scary movie, Sidney?”

These words haunted American society for at least five years when Scream, Scream 2 and Scream 3 were released in 1996, 1997 and 2000 respectively. At least, the words haunted middle-aged women home alone in their big houses in the middle of nowhere scared to answer the phone at night. The fear and portrayal of women also allowed stereotypes and other characters to form for the future of women roles in scary movies. Sidney, played by Neve Campbell, says at the beginning of the first Scream film after receiving a phone call from one of the killers, that there is no point in watching scary movies because they all display the same representation of women. »

Halloween 3-D Director and Screenwriter Confirmed

22 September 2009 9:35 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Dread Central reports that the negotiations for My Bloody Valentine director Patrick Lussier to take over for Rob Zombie on Halloween 3D have ended positively and Lussier is now confirmed to take the director's chair. Lussier told ShockTilYouDrop that he is "excited to be aboard" the sequel. Fans should be, too, since Lussier is not a stranger to the Halloween world, having served as editor on one of the better sequels, Halloween: H20.

Joining Lussier is Valentine screenwriter Todd Farmer, with Dimension clearly hoping to duplicate the duo's Valentine success for H3D — especially after Halloween II lost its opening weekend to 3-D horror rival The Final Destination.

Production on Halloween 3D begins at the end of the year with an anticipated release date of late summer 2010. Shooting will have to be quick, since Lussier and Farmer are scheduled to start work on Drive Angry, the Nicolas Cage "revenge movie, »

Exclusive: Patrick Lussier Confirmed to Direct Halloween 3D

18 September 2009 9:17 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

After weeks of speculation we can now confidently report that the person taking over the reins of the Halloween franchise will be none other than Patrick Lussier, director of My Bloody Valentine 3D.

Halloween 3D is going into production early this November for what we can only speculate will be a late summer release. Which brings us to another question ... What does that mean for Lussier's recently announced Drive Angry with Nicolas Cage?

Rest assured that film is very much still happening. A trusted source close to the production of both films has told us exclusively that the two projects are extremely important to Lussier and company, and production of Drive Angry will begin immediately after Halloween 3D is completed.

In fact, production on H3D isn't affecting Drive Angry in the slightest bit because the Cage vehicle was always scheduled to begin filming spring of next year. Lussier can »

From My Bloody Valentine 3D To Halloween 3D! Patrick Lussier To Write & Direct!

7 September 2009 12:42 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The day after Rob Zombie's Halloween 2 opened, the Weinstein Company already announced it's intention to release Halloween 3D by next summer, no doubt to follow hot on the heels of last weekend (and this weekend's) number one movie The Final Destination. Not only that, but with the recently announced remake of The Blob, this Halloween would have to go on without Zombie. Last week's rumor was that Halloween: H20 director Steve Miner was circling the project. Seems now we have a different name.

In a recent Variety post, Patrick Lussier the director of My Bloody Valentine 3D is in negotiations to write and direct the next Halloween movie, Halloween 3D. Considering his long standing history with Dimension having edited for Wes Craven on the Scream movies, Red Eye and even Miner's H20, paired with the successful box office of his My Bloody Valentine remake, it comes as no surprise. »

Weinsteins Going Back To Former Halloween Director For Halloween 3D?

1 September 2009 12:48 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Yesterday a tipster started letterbombing the inboxes of horror editors with an unconfirmed bit of news about a director for Halloween 3D, essentially replacing Rob Zombie, who'll be moving on to The Blob and hopefully Tyrannosaurus Rex. The news isn't even 'news' yet, as it remains speculative. But it's an interesting idea, as the director is someone who has experience with the Halloween fanchise already, and has also had a hand in both 3D and another long-running horror series. The name, after the break... The first time Dimension revived the Halloween franchise, with Halloween H20: 20 Years Later (meant to be a sequel to the original Halloween II, ignoring the films that came after), the company turned to Steve Miner. He'd previously been allied with a rival franchise, directing Friday the 13th Part II and Friday the 13th Part III, the latter in 3D That being the case, he's more »

Greatest Scream Queens

1 September 2009 12:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Debbie Rochon, often described as a scream queen herself, wrote in an article originally published in Gc Magazine that "a true Scream Queen isn't The Perfect Woman. She's sexy, seductive, but most importantly 'attainable' to the average guy. Or so it would seem." Nastassja Kinski Films: To the Devil a Daughter (1976) [1] Cat People (1982) [2] The Day the World Ended (2001) [3] Inland Empire (2006) [4] Kinski will always be remembered for the iconic photograph shot by Richard Avedon (with a snake coiled around her body) and her role in Paul Schrader's (not so good) remake of Cat People. Needless to say, it was a hit at the box office and Kinski deservingly received a Saturn Award for Best Actress. Caroline Munro Films: The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971) [5] Dr. Phibes Rises Again (1972) [6] Dracula A.D. 1972 [7] Maniac (1980) [8] Faceless (1987) [9] Demons 6 (1989) [10] Caroline Munro seduced audiences in her Hammer roles in films like Dracula A.D. 1972, but for gore hounds, »

Miner Circling Halloween 3D ?

1 September 2009 | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

A tipster calling himself "The Egg Man" is making the rounds on the genre news circuit alerting all editors of a potential director for Halloween 3D . Over the weekend, Bob Weinstein of Dimension Films revealed to the L.A. Times that they'll be moving forward on a third 3-D chapter for the summer of 2010 with a new director attached. According to "The Egg Man," that director is Steve Miner, who also helmed Halloween: H20 . Miner's credits also include Friday the 13th: Part 2 , Friday the 13th: Part 3 , which was released in 3-D, House , and Lake Placid . Since then he's been doing a lot of television work. Recently, he helmed the Day of the Dead remake. No doubt he's a seasoned genre vet and has had experience with Myers, but is the right man to »

Steve Miner for Halloween 3D?

31 August 2009 10:50 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

We usually don't report on rumors because they often have a nasty habit of ending up being debunked, but it's hard not to see the logic in this tasty tidbit that has come across our desks.

A tipster, who wants to be identified only as The Egg Man, wrote in to us tonight with what could very well be an interesting development on the Halloween 3D front.

It would seem that Dimension is in negotiations with none other than Steve Miner to helm the next Halloween film. Why him? You may remember that Miner directed Halloween: H20 and Friday the 13th Parts II and III.

Being that Miner has successfully brought Myers to life once already after a miserable bout of sequels and has experience working in 3D, he truly seems like a logical candidate to be up for the job. Hence our reporting on this possibility. Lord knows, a »

The Horrors of Haddonfield: A Halloween Retrospective

5 August 2009 11:31 AM, PDT | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

Few films garner a strong enough impact to merit a “classic” label. Even fewer obtain followings large enough to warrant the making of nine sequels. John Carpenter is one of the very few in this business who can lay claim to both accomplishments. Though Halloween began as a small independent feature, it’s now grown into an undeniably successful franchise, and with the release of Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2 reboot just around the corner, it doesn’t appear Halloween’s momentum is anywhere near slowing.  

The Beginning (1978)

In 1978 John Carpenter and Debra Hill poured the artistic cement that would act as a foundation for what would ultimately become labeled horrors slasher sub-genre (there were a few excellent slasher films preceding Carpenter‘s work, but all failed to grab the attention that Halloween captured), a now pivotal piece of the cinematic related horror puzzle. Halloween, was a low budget (the entire »

The actress who plays Gretchen Morgan talks about the series and the upcoming DVD movie

Jodi Lynn O'Keefe certainly got off to a fast start in Hollywood.

'Pearl Harbor' Hunk Josh Hartnett Fine After Released From Hospital

3 April 2009 7:41 PM, PDT | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Four days after being hospitalized, "Pearl Harbor" hunk Josh Hartnett has been released from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. "He's fine," his rep Susan Patricola tells People. "They are running tests, which take time to get back and it's a process of elimination."

The 30-year-old actor was rushed to the hospital on Monday, March 30 after he complained of abdominal pains. At that time, Patricola said Hartnett was under observation of gastrointestinal problem he has been suffering for several months. "They just have to figure out what it is," she stated.

"Josh Hartnett walked into an ambulance at approximately 1:45 A.M. this morning suffering from a flare-up of a gastrointestinal problem that plagued him while he was starring in the west end of London during the production of Rain Man [last year]," the rep added. Besides, RadarOnline also reported that Hartnett "looked pale, dirty and disheveled" before he was taken to »

When Missing Actors Return to the Franchise Fold

3 April 2009 8:51 AM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

This week's "Fast & the Furious" is the fourth film in an eight-year-long franchise, but only the first to reunite all four stars from the original cast: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster. (Walker alone starred in 2003's "2 Fast 2 Furious," while Diesel made an uncredited cameo in 2006's otherwise unrelated "Tokyo Drift.") Speaking about the film this week with the New York Times, Diesel said "It's kind of tricky to revisit a character so long after the fact. But it's very cool on a lot of levels to be able to go back to high school and do it all over again."

Returning to a long-running franchise after being missing in action isn't just difficult; it's also unusual. Even if a film series lasts long enough to permit a star to leave and then return, it only happens with the right alchemical mix of fan interest, career desperation, »
