Katie Holmes has maintained a relatively low-key persona in the aftermath of her divorce from Tom Cruise last summer, but now she's getting back to business with her first movies since 2011's "Jack and Jill" and the ReelzChannel miniseries "The Kennedys." Photos from the set of one of those movies -- the upcoming "Mania Days" -- have surfaced, featuring Holmes dashing through a fountain with co-star Luke Kirby while clad in a wet T-shirt.
"Mania Days" depicts two manic depressives who meet in a psychiatric ward and embark on a romance. The movie is written and directed by Paul Dalio, who made his feature-film debut with the 2012 Bulgarian movie "Faith, Love and Whiskey." Spike Lee serves as a producer.

This week for Exploitation Alley, we’re going deep into the troubled teens genre, and into a film that I loved as a kid and continue to enjoy as an adult. Complete with shivs, juvenile halls and some pretty badass thugs, I’m talking about Rick Rosenthal’s 1983 youth gone wrong film Bad Boys…and no, not the Will Smith movie.
Bad Boys tells the story of Mick O’Brien (Sean Penn, Mystic River, At Close Range) a young hoodlum who spends his time snatching purses, getting into fights and putting the mack on his girlfriend J.C. (Ally Sheedy, The Breakfast Club). Hoping to step his game up, Mick comes up with the not so bright idea of ripping off his rival, another tough as nails thug named Paco ( played pretty ferociously by Labamba‘s Esai Morales), and Mick’s plan goes horribly wrong, ending with mulitple deaths, including »
If anyone knows the Halloween franchise, that person is Justin Beahm. The guy’s a walking encyclopedia of all things Michael Myers-related, and is currently writing the definitive book on the series, Halloween: The Complete Authorized History, which from the sound of it, is gearing up to be one hell of a read. Justin was nice enough to chat with Icons Of Fright, and talked everything from the book to his thoughts on where the series should go next. Check it out!
Writing the definitive book on the Halloween series is a huge undertaking, what inspired you to take it on?
The whole thing started several years ago, I think four years ago, when I was working on an article for Fangoria Magazine on the Halloween 4-6 story arc. I’ve always been kind of fascinated by that, and the series as a whole has always had such »
If you’re a geek or a horror fan, you probably already know the name Katee Sackhoff pretty well. She’s been in everything from Halloween: Resurrection and White Noise 2: The Light to Nip/Tuck and 24, but the talented young actress really made her name as “Starbuck” on the critically acclaimed reboot of Battlestar Galactica. Well, you’re about to see a whole lot more of Sackhoff as she stars in the upcoming Riddick, alongside Vin Diesel and Karl Urban, and A&E’s western drama Longmire.
With her latest film, The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia, set to hit theaters this Friday, FEARnet sat down with Sackhoff to discuss her latest film, real life ghosts, and “that guy from Jaws.”
I really enjoyed your performance in the film. How did you land the role of Joyce?
My fiancé actually produced the movie, so I knew about »

Michael Myers: the one person babysitters hate more than the kids they have to look after. As if minimum wage wasn’t the only problem they had to contend with! This mute maniac was driven by one thing, to kill Laurie Strode, his own babysitter. Due to him being an unstoppable killing machine, too, he also enjoyed offing any unlucky person (or animal) who got in his way. From his debut in Halloween in 1978, right through to Halloween: Resurrection in 2002, he has disposed a total of 77 victims and here we count down his top 10 most insane kills. For scientific reasons, of course.
Please be warned, this article contains spoilers, gore and nudity.
10. Lynda Van Der Klok: Halloween
Lynda is a prime example of the old horror movie stereotype: If you have sex, you’ll end up a victim. Michael had already dispatched of Bob – her boyfriend – stole his glasses »
