What's your favorite scary movie? There are certainly plenty of good ones out there, but the '90s classic Scream is pretty fantastic. And because it's the weekend before halloween, and therefore the spookiest, scariest, and hauntiest weekend of the year, we thought it would be the perfect time to feature a supercut full of all the screams from the Scream franchise.

‘What’s your favourite scary movie?’
Director: Wes Craven
Plot: When a horror movie obsessive begins slaughtering high school students, local teen Sidney Prescott finds herself at the centre of events on the one year anniversary of her mother’s murder.
With satire as sharp as a knife, Scream took the clichés which plague the horror genre and spun them on their head. Then slit their throat. The super-meta slasher first hit the big screen in 1996 and introduced a saga that would influence scary movies for years to come. The ‘…Baby One More Time’ of horror, if you will.
Masked killer Ghostface creates a real-life horror movie inspired by an obsession with Hollywood’s darkest creations. The infamous opening scene, and arguably the scariest, encapsulates what Scream is. Drew Barrymoore answers the phone to an anonymous voice but their immediate flirting descends into threats. »

For you Ghost Face fans out there, here's something cool. Some time ago I did a feature-length documentary focusing on Scream, Scream 2 and Scream 3 called Still Screaming. Long story short, we cut a bunch of extras to accompany its release. Alas, they were not featured in the Scream Blu-ray box set.
Later, we packaged those extras in a limited edition two-disc set.

11 years after Scream 3 premiered, Wes Craven returned to Woodsboro to torment Sidney Prescott and the gang one more time. In 2011, Scream 4 pulled audiences back into theaters to the tune of $97 million worldwide, and brought in untold wealth to Dimension Films and The Weinstein Company in the resurgence of fans buying the first three. So Scream 5 and even Scream 6 seemed inevitable. But it.s 2013, so what.s the deal? Well, Harvey Weinstein still wants Scream 5 to happen. As reported by Indiewire, he confessed as much at the Zurich Film Festival Masterclass, saying he.s pushing his brother Bob, who runs Dimension Films, to get it going: "Everyone lived in Scream 4. I'm begging him to do the movie and just end it. We've milked that cow." It.s true. Despite all odds, survivor Sidney, dopey Deputy Dewey, and danger junkie Gale Weathers all pulled through this latest brush with Ghostface. »
Terminator may be back with Game of Thrones' Alan Taylor at the helm. The director of the upcoming Thor sequel via Disney, is in talks to helm the latest Terminator film for Skydance Productions, Annapurna Pictures and Paramount Pictures, sources have told Variety. There are no details on the plot at this time, and whether Arnold Schwarzenegger will have any part in the film at all, although that's highly unlikely. David Ellison produces via Skydance alongside Annapurna's Megan Ellison. The script comes from Patrick Lussier (The Eye, Scream 3, Drive Angry, Apollo 18) and Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island, Pathfinder, Alexander). »
There’s nothing more devastating than watching a great movie, when all of a sudden your favourite character is killed, especially if it’s completely out of nowhere. As film lovers, we’re a sentimental bunch, and it’s easy to get attached to characters after 2 hours (or even considerably less) of a well-written story, such that when they meet their shocking demise, we’re gutted, and even angry at the film for manipulating our emotions so brilliantly. The viewer then typically stews in their own resentment for the rest of the film, hoping that the character might magically return at the eleventh hour to save the day.
Whatever the rhyme or reason behind their deaths, these are 10 awesome characters who lit up the films they starred in, and while we really didn’t want them to die, the film just wouldn’t be the same without their ultimate sacrifice… »

It's been about a year since the Season 2 finale of "Todd & the Book of Pure Evil" aired on FEARnet, but finally the complete second season is arriving on DVD. Equal parts camp and gore, the show is a must-see for fans of horror, comedy, horror-comedy, and everything in between!
From the Press Release:
Imagine, if you will, a book of awesome power. A book that will make your deepest, darkest desires come true... but at a horrifying cost. This is The Book of Pure Evil, and it's loose in Crowley High, unleashing its dark power and filling the school hallways with monsters made of human fat and flesh-eating zombie rockers. Thankfully, four teenagers stand between The Book and the end of the world as we know it. And they will save our souls -- whether they like it or not.

As soon as the opening title sequence of Terror Tract starts you fee like you are watching a campy 80s horror movie. The score featuring generic female screams over melodramatic horns starts from the opening image until we see a quintessential American suburb complete with a young mom walking around in ugly jeans. But Terror Tract is not an 80s movie it was released in 2000 the same year as Final Destination and Scream 3. Adding to the era confusion is 80s star John Ritter who stars as Bob Carter a fast talking real estate agent shepherding the lovely Doyle couple to three different houses for sale each with their own »
While I've loved the unexpected twists and terrifying turns that lace every excellent episode of The Following, what truly cemented my adoration for Kevin Williamson's serial killer thriller was Emma, Jacob and Paul's literal and figurative threesome.
But with last week's episode forever eliminating one of the love triangle's corners (R.I.P. Paul), the fans and the show need to move on. So to find out what's next, I caught up with Nico Tortorella, who is coming off his most powerful episode yet as Jacob finally committed his first murder and simultaneously bid adieu to his partner in crime.
ETonline: We saw an unexpectedly emotional side of Jacob last week with his mother. Do you think he feels broken at that moment?
Nico Tortorella: Yeah, he's definitely broken. But that moment with his mother kind of shows you who Jacob is. The script was so beautiful in the way those pieces came together, especially »
I've gotta drop a Spoiler Alert at the outset of this article because one of the big reasons I wanted to sit down with the always-impeccable Shawn Ashmore at this time was because his character, F.B.I. agent Mike Weston, just survived one of The Following's most harrowing life or death situations to date!
In last week's episode, Weston found himself the involuntary star of a Follower Fight Club, where lead pipes and knives replaced fists and knees, after Joe tasked his devotees to abscond with the agent in hopes of learning the location of Claire's safe house.
After initially putting up a good fight, Weston endured a seriously brutal beating despite pleas that no one ever gave him Claire's location. But as the audience, and Ryan Hardy, learned after an eleventh hour reprieve, Weston was actually one of the few agents who did know where Joe's ex-wife was being held, thereby truly saving »
Scream 3 was supposed to be the end of the trilogy... but could Wes Craven close on such an underwhelming note I think what we all wanted from Scream 3 was an intriguing plot and a long look at the characters we learned to love over the course of the first two films. What we got is a rushed story that doesnt fit Sidney Prescott Dewey Riley or Gale Weathers. Sadly it doesnt fit Wes Cravens contemporary directorial style either. This one just doesnt fit anywhere. »
Fans of The Following received excellent news today when Fox revealed it was renewing the freshman series (along with The Mindy Project, Raising Hope and New Girl) for next season. And considering star Valorie Curry tells me tonight's all-new episode only begins to reveal how far Joe Carroll's reach extends beyond Emma, Jacob and Paul, it sounds like we'll be caught in the show's hypnotic web for years to come.
ETonline: The last time we talked, you told me that people were calling you "a monster" on the street. Has that changed at all?
Valorie Curry: [laughs] Oh no. No, no, no. That hasn't changed at all. That's only gotten worse. After episode three aired, I walked in my neighborhood coffee shop. This woman looked at me and her jaw literally dropped as she grabbed her husband and started screaming, "I love you, but I'm terrified, but I love you." I didn't »
The latest episode of Scandal - "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" - propelled us forward 10 months. Olivia and Fitz haven't spoken and both are miserable. There's a mole in the White House. David Rosen is persona non grata to all the D.C. law firms and he needs Olivia's help.
Then there's Scott Foley. Oh boy, was there Scott Foley! Jump right in with TV Fanatic staff writers Jim Garner, Christine Orlando, Carla Day, and Miranda Wicker - as well as Emily from ABC Scandal Fans website - to discuss our guest star's creepy tendencies!
What was your favorite scene or quote from "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?"
Jim: I hate to say it, but I so enjoyed watching Mellie throw Cyrus under the bus. I knew she was clever, but this showed she still has some teeth when it comes to Fitz.
Christine: It was more of a love to hate moment. When »

Like many of you, I excitedly watched The Following to see Kevin Bacon in his first-ever TV role. And while it's been great seeing him battle James Purefoy's charismatic killer, Joe Carroll, I quickly became infinitely more invested in Joe's three followers: Emma, Jacob and Paul. Well, last night took the tension to a new level as Emma cemented her control over that triumvirate in the most memorable shower scene since (ironically) Kevin Bacon in Wild Things.
And if thought that was shocking, just wait until next week's episode reveals the fallout from Emma's emotional expression!
To find out what fans can expect from future eps of The Following, I caught up with the absolutely amazing Valorie Curry (one of 2013's biggest breakout stars) to talk all about this thrilling threesome and find out why opening her heart is the most dangerous thing Emma could ever do.

As a movie enthusiast and the guy that runs Movie Room Reviews, I, Zack Mandell, have wondered for a while now: which of the horror movie murderers have killed the most in their on-screen careers? Breaking it down by amount of kills, here are the 10 most dangerous killers in the movies. 10. The Creeper – Kill Count: 20 As seen in: Jeepers Creeper (2001), Jeepers Creepers 2 (2003). Depicted by: Jonathan Breck. For a guy that comes out every 23 years and can only kill for 23 days, a kill count of 20 is pretty impressive. His obsession with body parts is pretty disgusting too. Unfortunately, his victims generally are not allowed to just donate them, meaning that the creeper has probably racked up an impressive body count over the last couple thousand years. 9. Ghostface – Kill Count: 28 As seen in: Scream (1996), Scream 2 (1997), Scream 3 (2000), Scream 4 (2011); depicted by: Skeet Ulrich, Timothy Olyphant, Scott Foley, Emma Roberts, Matthew Lillard and Rory. »

Last week The Following terrified over 10 million viewers with its pilot episode, but you best believe me when I say that you ain't seen nothing yet!
Not only does tonight's second episode begin to shine a light on my favorite storyline, but it deepens every character's backstory and reveals previously unseen connections. Like with Claire Matthews and Ryan Hardy, whose hinted at history comes into full view over the next two episodes as Claire continues to fret over her abducted son while avoiding all dark corners.
ETonline: When you read this script, what made you want to play Claire?
Natalie Zea: I have to say it was less about the character and more about the script as a whole. I was so confused by what I was reading; was it »
This has been an interesting season of The Vampire Diaries for Bonnie Bennett, who, despite factoring into the overall year-long mystery of finding the cure for vampirism, has been segregated from the main characters as she works on harnessing her magic.
But according to Kat Graham, Bonnie is about to come into focus in a big way as she not only regains full control over her powers, but could potentially use them for with potentially polarizing effects!
ETonline: Hey Kat, how's it going?
Kat Graham: Good, I'm driving from Cleveland, Ohio to Detroit to visit some radio stations and meeting a few fans, hanging out with some locals.
ETonline: Congrats on the Wanna Say music video? You look amazing in it!
Graham: Thank you so much! That means a lot coming from you, because you remember my terrible videos [laughs]. We won't talk about those, but I'm really proud of this. From the director »
A lot of us can agree, with little to no argument, that Scream 3 wasn't the most popular entry into the film series. I personally liked it myself, and there were other horror fans that also did, but most people didn't dig it at all because of the lackluster storyline. However, according to Entertainment Tonight, who recently spoke to Kevin Williamson about his upcoming show the Following, an entirely different storyline existed for the film.… »
