Horror films are not always known for having well-developed and instantly likable characters.
. But, seeing as how cheering for the demise of horny teenagers is often half the fun, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. There are a few deviations from that trend, however. Occasionally, viewers are given a group of characters that are easy to identify with and immediately likable. Alien and Black Christmas both had a great cast of well-developed characters that were relatable to the audience. Realistically, though, horror films with a congenial and fleshed out cast are the exception more so than the rule. It’s more commonplace to see horror films with disposable and interchangeable characters that no viewer has any emotional attachment to. Amongst those throwaway characters, we sometimes find performances that we are actually incensed by. We develop an intense dislike for certain cast members for a variety of reasons. Some characters »

While many were untying the bows on their Easter baskets Sunday, Mekhi Phifer was tying the knot.
The former "ER" actor, 38, wed longtime girlfriend Reshelet Barnes in an intimate Beverly Hills ceremony. About 100 friends and family members attended, including Phifer's son, who walked down the aisle with their Chihuahua.
Phifer entered to Stevie Wonder's "Ribbon in the Sky," according to E! News. The 15-minute ceremony featured the happy couple in dashing ivory.
"When she made her entrance into the courtyard, Mekhi was completely overcome with emotion and you could tell she took his breath away," an eyewitness source told E! News. "He had to wipe tears from his eyes for several minutes."
To top off what already sounds like a wonderful event, none other than TV's Judge Greg Mathis officiated the ceremony.

After a number of years spent sifting through independently-produced horror movies of every size, shape, quality, and nationality, one starts to notice the little intangibles. Things like intent, effort, and passion -- and, on the other hand, stuff like laziness, cynicism, and outright plagiarism. One of the recent "discoveries" on my horror rounds was an American indie called Smiley that, oddly enough for such a tiny film, earned itself a small theatrical run a few months back, probably because the sales agent knew what s/he was doing. Michael J. Gallagher's monumentally uneventful slasher flick Smiley comfortably joins the ranks of films like Chain Letter, Blood Creek, and Creature: low-rent horror flicks that play theaters only so the DVD sales sheets can legally say "fresh off a successful theatrical run!"
Because not even the creators of Smiley could believe that a movie this woeful could pack any appreciable number »

One of the great things about growing up in the late 80’s/early 90’s was that the majority of the well known horror franchises were all at their absolute peak in popularity, which meant that sequels to some of the most famous movie maniacs were always in production and always inevitable. Part of the fun of these flicks getting churned out at such an alarmingly fast rate was that in order to start promoting the next entry of a series in a timely fashion, studios would create teaser trailers with footage never intended for the actual movie. Just something quick and cool to whet the insatiable appetite of horror fanatics. So what follows are 10 of our all time favorite horror franchise teaser trailers. Do you remember any of the following?
A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987) – At this point, Freddy Krueger was on the cusp of becoming a phenomenon. »
