I heard you met your wife, Anna Faris, on set during a movie. You're both great, I've loved her since the first Scary Movie but Chris you've [...] »

Review: The Walking Deceased

19 April 2015 4:41 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

I’ve always subscribed to the idea that film parodies only work when they’re played straight. When the situation is what brings the laughs, instead of continual references and camera winks, so to speak. Films like the Scary Movie or A Haunted House series never quite did the trick, with turning cliche-filled parts of the films they were poking fun into just a series silly jokes, with no staying power, once the scene was over. What made films like Airplane, The Naked Gun and even Top Secret! or Get Smart work so well, is how straight they were played, almost as if the viewer was the only one In on the joke, making each gag work tremendously well. The Tim Ogletree-written/Scott Dow-directed parody on all things zombie, The Walking Deceased, unfortunately falls into the former category, relying on over the top and continual references to the »

Anna Faris: Most of the Paparazzi 'Are Pretty Nice Guys'

13 March 2015 7:17 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Here's an admission you don't hear from celebs too often.

In a new interview with Health magazine, Mom star Anna Faris explains why she doesn't have too much of an issue with paparazzi.

"We're pretty low-key. We stay at home a lot," she says about her and her husband, Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt. "I don't know if my husband would necessarily agree, but most of them [paparazzi] are pretty nice guys, just trying to make a living, and a lot of them are apologetic."

She also says it pays to show them a little courtesy. The Scary Movie actress explains that most paparazzi will leave her alone as soon as they get the shot "if you're nice to them."

"I think some celebrities are so mean to them and resent them so much," she says. "I mostly feel scared just going out without makeup on. But at the »

4 March 2015 6:27 AM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

It's been 17 years since she played Lani on "Baywatch" ... but Carmen Electra could still slip right back into that red one-piece now! The sexy 42-year-old proved age ain't nothing but a number on Tuesday, when she posted a series of hot pics from her vacation in Tahiti. Sporting an animal print bikini and a floral sarong in her hand, the former "Scary Movie" star flaunted her anything-but-scary physique. Yasmine Bleeth Resurfaces After 10 Years -- See Her Now! Carmen opened up about aging in FHM last year. "I feel more comfortable now," Electra reveals. "Less nervous. I feel like I'm in a really good place in my life and just being in that space makes you feel sexier."Carmen says self confidence "starts on the inside first," and comes down to being comfortable in your own skin. "I think it's all about embracing yourself," the brunette beauty reveals.

Video Round-Up: The Walking Deceased, Behind-the-Scenes of New Bond Movie ‘Spectre’, Salem Season 2

26 February 2015 6:09 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We're back with another video round-up that should excite fans of The Walking Dead, James Bond, and Salem's John Alden. The first trailer for Arc Entertainment's The Walking Deceased, a horror comedy spoof of AMC's The Walking Dead and other living dead films like Zombieland and Shaun of the Dead, has been released, along with a new behind-the-scenes look at the 24th Bond film, Spectre, and another teaser for season two of Wgn America's Salem.

The Walking Deceased (slated for a March 20th release): "The Walking Deceased is a delightfully bloody addition to the pantheon of zombie-apocalypse spoofs. Lampooning every tried and true zombie meme. Join the Sheriff with his son, and a motley crew of survivors as they weather confrontations with zombies, meet up and then leave their tattered camp–a partially destroyed shopping mall.

Interview: 'Mom' star Anna Faris on why it's fun to be a mess, hard to fall down

26 February 2015 2:44 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Now it's time for your semi-regular reminder: Few comedies on network TV take more risks and offer more interesting rewards than CBS' "Mom" and CBS' "Mom" is shifting to a new time period at 9:30 on Thursdays.  They've been having a rough go of things recently on "Mom," with the death of Kevin Pollak's Alvin. And rather than following the normal sitcom blueprint of letting characters grieve for a scene or two, "Mom" has kept those emotional wounds open. Of course, as always on "Mom," it hasn't been all wallowing. Yes, her father just died and her mother may be cracking up a little, but Anna Faris' Christy got a promotion at work and with a new-found interest in the law, it's possible that Christy may have more direction than ever before. And that, of course, means that it'll soon be time for Christy to fall on her face again. »

Sundance Comedy 'People, Places, Things' Acquired By The Film Arcade

24 February 2015 8:43 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After earning rave reviews out of its Sundance premiere last month, Jim Strouse's "People, Places, Things" has been acquired for U.S. distribution by The Film Arcade. Starring Jemaine Clement ("Flight of the Conchords") and Regina Hall ("Scary Movie"), "People, Places, Things" is a poignant and relatable comedy about a recently divorced father who must now navigate the unknown landscape of single fatherhood and dating in New York City, while letting go of the wife who left him. It's the third film directed by Strouse, whose debut "Grace is Gone" earned two Golden Globe nominations and various festival prizes. "We're big fans of Jim's earlier films and he impressed us once again with 'People, Places, Things,' which is a witty and refreshingly honest look at modern day relationships," said The Film Arcade's Andy Bohn. "Jemaine Clement is as funny and charming as ever and we can't wait to share Jim's film. »

Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi on 'What We Do In the Shadows'

12 February 2015 1:07 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi serve up excellent horror satire in "What We Do in the Shadows," and it's nothing like the criminally terrible "Scary Movie" stuff you've choked down for the past 15 years. The film, which premieres February 13, takes a mockumentary approach to vampire culture that makes you realize a coven of bloodsuckers is not so different from the cast of "Modern Family." We asked the two about the movie's very casual use of special effects, the movies they care about most, and whether or not Bret McKenzie -- Clement's Flight of the Conchords partner -- really earned that Oscar for "Man or Muppet."  »

Thn Talks ‘Badge Of Honor’ With Lochlyn Munro

9 February 2015 9:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Lochlyn Munro may not be an immediately recognisable name but the Canadian actor has certainly been a prominent face in mainstream media since his breakout in the late 90s. You’ll know him best for his comedic appearances in A Night At The Roxbury, Scary Movie and White Chicks but the talented star has also featured in 21 Jump Street, Charmed, SmallvilleCastle and Arrow.

To celebrate the release of the new crime-thriller Badge Of Honor, we were fortunate enough to speak to Munro about the film, his past roles and his brilliantly diverse career.

Lochlyn: Hello, this is Lochlyn.

Thn: Hello Lochlyn, this is The Hollywood News. It’s a pleasure to be talking with you, I’m a huge fan!

Lochlyn: Oh well thanks, thanks! It must be a bit late for you out there, huh?

Thn: Yes, it’s actually 1 am here but I’m a bit of a night owl! »

17 moments of movie terror in the bathroom

5 February 2015 7:47 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From toilet-based scares to nasty encounters in the shower, here's a selection of 17 memorable moments of terror in the bathroom...

Nb: the following contains potential spoilers and scenes which may be considered Nsfw.

The scariest moments in horror are often the most intimate - this is why knives are a far nastier, button-pushing instrument of death than the gun. As the Joker famously put it in The Dark Knight, “You can savour all those little emotions...”

Intimacy may be the key to understanding why, in horror films, so many dreadful things tend to happen in bathrooms. The bathroom is often where we go to be by ourselves - either to answer the call of nature, brush our teeth, or simply relax in the bath after a hectic day at work. Equally, the water closet also sees us at our most vulnerable: naked, or at least with our trousers down, and »

20 Greatest Meta-Horror Movies Of All Time

31 January 2015 3:22 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

New Line Cinema

Every generation of horror has different things that define and seem to rule that time period. In the ’30s you had the classic monsters, with the ’80s came slashers and in the ’90s the hot phrase was “meta”.

For those unaware, meta-horror (in this case) refers to horror films that are particularly self-aware, governed by film-making that is extremely conscious of what genre it belongs to. Sometimes this simply means that the filmmakers will give a quick wink or a nod to previous horror classics, and at others there’s a full blown discussion by the actual characters in the film regarding the fact that they’re completely aware that they’re acting out a horror film.

It’s worth noting however that there is a difference between meta-horror and a parody: for instance, the Scary Movie franchise – whilst having many references to past and current horror »

Are we nearing the end of the post-apocalyptic TV drama boom? NBC has ordered a dramedy series titled Apocalypse that stars Rob Lowe, Megan Mullally, Jenna Fischer and Matthew Baynton.
