10 Great Directors Who Should Make Horror Movies — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What filmmaker would you most like to see try their hand at a horror movie?

Kristy Puchko (@KristyPuchko), Pajiba/Riot Material

I struggled with this question, because a lot of the directors I have adored have worked in horror, be it Tim Burton (“Beetlejuice,” “Edward Scissorhands”), Robert Zemeckis (“Death Becomes Her”), Edgar Wright (“Shawn of the Dead”), Frank Oz (“Little Shop of Horror”), Guillermo del Toro (“Crimson Peak”), Bong-Joon Ho (“The Host”), Jim Jarmusch (“Only Lovers Left Alive”), or Taika Waititi (“What We Do In the Shadows”). Part of what I love about the genre is the way is can be reshaped with vision, color,

'Jigsaw' Brings the 'Saw' Franchise Back to the Big Screen as 'Thor: Ragnarok' Debuts Overseas

'Jigsaw' Brings the 'Saw' Franchise Back to the Big Screen as 'Thor: Ragnarok' Debuts Overseas
Over the last couple of years, October hasn't been the haven for horror one would think it would be. This year, however, not only has the year itself been dominated by top quality horror releases, but It got a jump start on the scary season with a September release and October has already had Happy Death Day debut with strong numbers. This weekend, Lionsgate hopes to give the genre another jolt with Jigsaw, which brings the Saw franchise back to the big screen after a seven year hiatus. Additional new releases include George Clooney's Suburbicon and Universal's Thank You for Your Service while Dimension will finally release Amityville: The Awakening after over five years of the film bouncing around the release schedule. Expected to finish #1 this weekend, Lionsgate brings back one of the studio's most iconic characters with Jigsaw. Michael and Peter Spierig (Daybreakers) directed the film, which arrives

Carrie Fisher's Personal Star Wars Scripts Go Up for Auction
Carrie Fisher's hand annotated Star Wars scripts are going up for auction during a three- day Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds personal property action on October 7th through the 9th in Los Angeles, California. Profiles in History is in charge of the auctions and they expect the scripts to fetch some decent money, so if you are interested in any of these, they aren't going to go for cheap. These are important pieces of the Star Wars legacy and will be a worthy addition for any collector.

Fisher was known for taking her pencil out and crossing out some of the clunkier dialogue in the script and replacing it with her own witty dialogue. That fact is especially evident in her personal The Empire Strikes Back script, which has over 1,000 words handwritten by the actress in it. There are actually four scripts going up for auction, as she had two different ones for Empire.

Sofia Vergara's First Hollywood Red Carpet Was For a Movie Premiere You Won't Expect
Sofia Vergara has been a staple in Latin American pop culture since she starred in her first Pepsi commercial at age 17, but her first Hollywood red carpet didn't come until the year 2000 for a movie premiere that might surprise you. Back then, the 28-year-old actress made an appearance on the red carpet for Scream 3 - random, right? Little did anyone know just how much her life would change nine years later when she landed the role of Gloria on Modern Family. At the time of the Scream 3 premiere, Sofia had only appeared on Latin TV, specifically Mexican telenovelas as well as co-hosting the travel show Fuera de Serie. She made her first splash in Hollywood with a cameo in a 1999 Baywatch episode called "Boys Will be Boys", but didn't really become famous stateside until 2009. Now, Sofia is one of the highest paid actresses on TV and is married

Carrie Fisher Helped Write Star Wars 8
Star Wars Celebration in Orlando kicked off last week with an epic panel that celebrated the franchise's 40th Anniversary. It included a heartwarming tribute to the late Carrie Fisher. The next day, LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy joined director Rian Johnson for the Star Wars: The Last Jedi panel, celebrating what will ultimately be one of Carrie Fisher's last movies. Both the LucasFilm president and director paid tribute to the late actress in their own way, and Rian Johnson revealed that she even helped him write the Last Jedi script.

During the first half of the panel, hosted by Josh Gad, fans got to see a number of The Last Jedi behind-the-scenes photos that were taken by Rian Johnson on the set, one of which featured Carrie Fisher in full costume, with her feet up on a desk between takes, alongside Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron) and John Boyega (Finn).

Disney Eyeing Will Smith For Live-Action Dumbo Flick

  • LRM Online
I know what you’re thinking. You love the idea of Dumbo being remade into a live-action movie, but were worried by its serious lack of Will Smith, right? I know. I’m a mind reader.

In all seriousness, though, Disney’s recent trend in remaking their animated classics for the big screen is one that both elates and frustrates. On one end, it’s hard not to roll your eyes at the laziness inherent in the whole deal. Their properties are so well known that these films are bound to make some kind of profit, not matter how bad. On the other hand, the House of Mouse has already proven with films like Cinderella and The Jungle Book that a lazy idea does not necessarily mean lazy execution. So long as they put great talent both in front of and behind the camera, there’s a good chance they

The Week in Star Wars – Carrie Fisher obituary, Rogue One passes $700 million, original ending revealed and more

On December 23rd, Carrie Fisher boarded an aeroplane from London to Los Angeles and suffered from a heart attack. She had just completed the European tour of her book. Four days later, she passed away at the age of 60.

Fisher was raised into the Hollywood industry. Her mother, Debbie Reynolds, was the star of screen having found fame at the age of 19 in Singin’ in the Rain and her father was pop star Eddie Fisher. She was born on October 21st 1956, just a few years after Reynolds became a star. The two would develop a close bond, captured brilliantly in a photo where Fisher, just six years old, watches her mother perform on stage.

As a child Fisher was known as the “family bookworm”, but an opportunity to star on stage alongside her mother in Irene meant that she never graduated. She moved to London where she enrolled in Central School of Speech and Drama,

Carrie Fisher: From Princess Leia to Perfect Hollywood Wit

Carrie Fisher: From Princess Leia to Perfect Hollywood Wit
Carrie Fisher is dead. If I can't get my head around that inconceivable fact, it's because her voice is still in my head. Her smarts and her humor, both fueled by curiosity. Her laugh bubbling up like her honesty – both unfakable. Carrie, always the smartest person in the room. And the most fun. That could be intimidating. She knew it.

When we first met, she was already Princess Leia, Star Wars royalty even in that ridiculous bun. I made a joke about it, and Carrie looked disappointed. She wasn't hurt

Netflix’s Lost In Space Series Adds Parker Posey as Dr. Smith

  • DailyDead
It looks like Parker Posey will climb aboard the Jupiter 2, as the actress has reportedly joined Netflix's Lost in Space remake series to play a key role familiar to fans of the original show.

Deadline reports that Posey (Scream 3, Blade: Trinity, Louie, Clockwatchers, Best in Show) will play Dr. Smith, a character who was the initial antagonist and (eventual) source of occasional comic relief portrayed by Jonathan Harris in the original series, which aired from 1965–1968 on CBS. Fans of the show will remember Dr. Smith as someone who set out to sabotage the Robinson family on their space voyage aboard the Jupiter 2 (originally referred to as the Gemini 12). No specific details about Posey's version of Dr. Smith have been revealed at this time.

Season one of the new Lost in Space series will consist of ten episodes and is slated to premiere in 2018 on Netflix. Neil Marshall (The Descent,

The Smallest Show On Earth: In Memory Of The Bijou (1957) And The Alger (1940-2015)

The delightful British comedy The Smallest Show on Earth headlines a great Saturday matinee offering from the UCLA Film and Television Archive on June 25 as their excellent series “Marquee Movies: Movies on Moviegoing” wraps up. So it seemed like a perfect time to resurrect my review of the movie, which celebrates the collective experience of seeing cinema in a darkened, and in this case dilapidated old auditorium, alongside my appreciation of my own hometown movie house, the Alger, which opened in 1940 and closed last year, one more victim of economics and the move toward digital distribution and exhibition.

'Scream': 15 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the Slasher Franchise

  • Moviefone
It's been five years since the release of "Scream 4" (on April 15, 2011), but like the Ghostface killer, the franchise refuses to die.

Since the first film's release nearly 20 years ago (on December 20, 1996), there have been four movies that have grossed $604 million worldwide, as well as a spinoff series on MTV whose second season begins May 31. "Scream" not only became the most lucrative slasher-film series ever, but it also revitalized the teen horror genre. Still, as inescapable and relentless as the "Scream" franchise has been, there are still a lot of secrets behind that mask. Here are 15 terrifying tidbits of trivia.

1. "Scream" was originally a screenplay by Kevin Williamson called "Scary Movie," inspired in part by the real-life killings of five college students in Gainesville, Florida in 1990. But Dimension studio chief Bob Weinstein didn't think the title reflected Williamson's blend of horror and comedy.

2. Inspired by the recent Michael Jackson hit,

Neve Campbell: ‘Everything about Us politics makes me proud to be Canadian’

The Hollywood Scream queen is back – as a hard-boiled fixer in TV series House of Cards. Neve Campbell talks about being lonely in La, how political back-stabbing beats running around with a kitchen knife – and why she’s backing Hillary over Bernie

‘What does it even mean to be the world’s sexiest woman?” asks Neve Campbell. “Did they see every woman in the world? What does ‘sexy’ mean? Is what I find sexy what you find sexy?”

All good questions. I had asked Campbell to recall her early career, in which the Hollywood star was forever getting her sexiness ranked. In 1998, Empire magazine rated her No 3 in their list of 100 sexiest movie stars. More intriguingly, FHM ranked her No 31 in 1998, then 20 in 2000, and 42 in 2001. Did Campbell become more sexy in 2000 – and then less so a year later? Or was the 2000 ranking just because Scream 3 came out and she was in the news?
