Horror Cinema's Scariest Killer Scarecrows

13 March 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Stuffed with straw, dressed in rags and left to twist in the breeze, the typical mild-mannered scarecrow may not be built to frighten anything larger than your average feathered pest... but that hasn't stopped these eerie effigies from coming to life in our nightmares. For generations, this image of the harvest has been associated with the darker, colder days to come, so it wasn't long before spooky tales were being spun about evil scarecrows wandering the fields, intent on reaping something more substantial than corn. Cinematic scarecrows have come a long way since the lovable Wizard of Oz character, but some of them might still be looking for a brain... maybe even the one that's still in your skull.   Let's look at some of the all-time scariest movie scarecrows ever to stalk the fields by moonlight...     “Bubba” (Dark Night of the Scarecrow, 1981)   This chilling made-for-tv classic presents one of the »

6 March 2014 11:30 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

ABC's drama project "American Crime" is lining up one of the deepest casts you'll find this pilot season. The latest addition is Timothy Hutton, who has landed a lead role in the show.

The pilot, from "12 Years a Slave" Oscar winner John Ridley, is about a racially charged murder trial in California's Central Valley and its effect on those involved. Hutton, formerly of TNT's "Leverage," will play the father of the murder victim. His character is a gambling addict who has managed to turn his life around.

Felicity Huffman ("Desperate Housewives") is in talks to play Hutton's wife, and Penelope Ann Miller has signed on to play the mother of the victim's wife, who was badly beaten when her husband was killed. The cast also includes Benito Martinez ("The Shield"), W. Earl Brown ("Deadwood"), Caitlin Gerard, Elvis Nolasco and Richard Cabral.

Nikki Reed Will Open A Haunted Email In New Horror Flick

30 January 2014 8:30 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Twilight Saga may have been a shamefully terrible chapter in teen-targeted cinema, but the series did act as a launch-pad for multiple actors and actresses, most notably Ashley Greene and Nikki Reed. Greene has demonstrated considerable acting talent in projects like Cbgb and ABC’s short-lived Pan Am, while Reed was one of the best parts of recent action fare like Catch .44 and Empire State. Greene already made her bid to become a Hollywood scream queen with 2012 flop The Apparition, and now, it’s Reed’s chance. The actress has just signed on to topline a Singapore-set horror film called Email, which will start shooting on location in Singapore this May.

Singaporean director Kelvin Tong will helm the flick for Spj Enterprises, a production company also based out of Singapore. Tong previously directed The Maid, which was widely considered to be one of the country’s first horror »
