The calendar may say it's springtime, with Passover and Easter around the corner, but at movie theaters, it's more like Halloween.
As many as seven horror films are opening this month, including "Afflicted," "Oculus," horror spoof "A Haunted House 2," and "The Quiet Ones." There are also the horror-themed sci-fi thrillers "Under the Skin" and "Transcendence." Even at the art house, there's a vampire movie, Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive."
Has April become the new October?
There are a number of possible reasons for the current pile-up of horror films, but it may not be a deliberate strategy on the part of the studios, according to box office experts.
"April is often a dumping ground for studios, which is probably why we're seeing a surplus of horror titles this year," says Jeff Bock, senior box office analyst at Exhibitor Relations. "Truth be told, it's also the calm before the summer storm, »

A is for Aladdin
Starting with Cadillac Man and ending with Bicentennial Man, Robin Williams made 27 films over the course of the 90s. That's a whole spectrum of Robin Williamses: kooky (Mrs Doubtfire), mournful (What Dreams May Come), creepy (Jack) and annoying (again, Bicentennial Man). Yet the most 90s Robin Williams performance of all is his turn as the Genie in Disney's Aladdin, in which he is allowed to blabber and gibber and yelp and riff about nothing at a mile a minute for ages. It's brilliant, but exhausting. Remember, this film had two sound editors. Pray for them.
B is for The Blair Witch Project

Apparently craving a generous studio audience more than a good script, Lindsay Lohan has landed a guest role on CBS' "2 Broke Girls." CBS announced on Wednesday (March 5) that Lohan will be appearing on the Monday, April 14 episode of Monday 8:30 comedy. After playing herself on "Glee" and "Anger Management," as well as in "Scary Movie 5," Lohan at least theoretically has a character to play on "2 Broke Girls." CBS says that Lohan will be playing Claire Guinness, "a soon-to-be-bride who asks Max and Caroline to make her wedding cake." As Max and Caroline are about to discover, Claire is really indecisive. One thing Lohan can guarantee is that she'll be greeted with prolonged applause when she first appears on-screen. The "2 Broke Girls" audience has been giving Jennifer Coolidge the Fonz treatment for over a year, roaring at her every initial appearance as if Sophie Kachinsky's arrival offers hope of humor. »

With all the hoopla about the big Sunday night movie award show, many of you might not have gotten the list of the big winners from Saturday night’s big movie awards show. I’m talking about the 34th Annual Razzie Awards. They were started in 1980 by John Wilson to celebrate the movie year’s worst achievements. The hour-long ceremony was held this past Saturday evening down the street from the site of Sunday’s big show. Without further ado, here’s the nominees and winners for the 2013 film year:
Worst Remake, Rip-off, Or Sequel:

Awards season comes to a head tonight as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presents the winners of the Academy Awards, and - as is traditional - yesterday saw the very worst of cinematic achievement celebrated with the 34th annual Golden Raspberry Awards.
While Adam Sandler dominated the nominations (as usual) with Grown Ups 2, the Razzie favourite went away empty handed for a change as the ensemble comedy Movie 43 and M. Night Shyamalan sci-fi After Earth picked up three gongs apiece, with Movie 43 claiming Worst Picture, Worst Director(s) and Worst Screenplay and Jaden Smith and Will Smith named Worst Actor, Worst Supporting Actor and Worst Screen Combo.

The results are in, the envelopes have been opened, and the "winners" of the 34th Razzie Awards have been unveiled in ceremonies held at Hollywood's coolest new venue - just down the street from Sunday night's Oscars - IgnitedSpaces. The hour long show handed out at least one statuette to four of the five Worst Picture nominees, but Adam Sandler and his unfunny follow up Grown Ups 2 went home empty-handed.
Taking three of the top awards was the star-studded, snicker-free sketch comedy Movie 43, which "won" for Worst Screenplay (written by at least 19 people), Worst Director ("credited" to 13 people), and Worst Picture. Tying with 43, and also "winning" 3 gold spray-painted trophies, was the Will Smith and Jaden Smith sci-fi fiasco After Earth. Dad Will Smith took Worst Supporting Actor, son Jaden Smith was named Worst Lead Actor, and the combination of father & son, described in the ceremony as being "stranded »
Right before the Academy Awards announces its winners, the 34th Annual Razzie Awards has unveiled the list of its own winners for the worst achievement in film for 2013. Taking the prize for the Worst Picture of the year is "Movie 43," beating out such films as "After Earth," "Grown Ups 2," "The Lone Ranger" and "A Madea Christmas." The movie also won for Worst Director and Worst Screenplay. The theme of this year's Razzies focused on the Smith family, with Jaden Smith winning Worst Actor and Will Smith winning for Worst Supporting Actor for "After Earth." The father-son team also won in the Worst Screen Combo category. The only good news is that Adam Sandler and his "Grown Ups 2" went some how ignored, despite dominating the awards show for two straight years. Check out the full list of nominees and winners (in red) below. Worst Picture: * Movie 43 * After Earth »
Glamour! Elegance! The sweet smell of self-congratulation! None will be present at the 34th annual Razzie Awards, a proudly low-budget event dedicated to dishonoring the previous year’s worst movies. (Actually, make that “no-budget”; have you seen the Razzies’ website? It looks like a Geocities page from 1996.)
There are several strong contenders in this year’s Razzies race, from father-and-son team Will and Jaden Smith to perennial “winner” Adam Sandler and Golden Raspberry Award Foundation favorite Sylvester Stallone, who snagged a record-breaking 31st nomination for his work in three 2013 films.

Tim Story is returning to direct from a script by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi, bringing the entire creative team from Ride Along back together for the sequel. »
From boxing to axing. Maverick director Werner Herzog has landed a knock-out blow with plans to cast Mike Tyson as an axe murderer in forthcoming drama Vernon God Little.

Tisdale plays the lead character 'Jody' in "Scary Movie 5".
"There were so many cameos" Tisdale said about "Scary Movie 5", "and that's what I love about these movies.
"They'd write a scene, then look for cameos, and they'd just pop in and do it.
"It was, like, 'Whoa, Mike Tyson's here'...and that wasn’t even planned!"
Tisdale's "High School Musical" track record included two TV movies, 1 feature film and several albums, with Tisdale following up with a Warner Bros. Records deal in 2006 allowing her to release the studio CDs "Headstrong" (2007) and "Guilty Pleasure" (2009).

Awards season can get a bit tiresome after a while. All that Hollywood backslapping and red carpet posing can get a bit much... and we're only halfway through January.
One awards show that always gets the thumbs up from Digital Spy is the Razzies, the celebration of the biggest flops on the big screen. Getting into the Razzies spirit, we asked Digital Spy readers on our Facebook page for their biggest movie stinkers from the last 12 months.
Keep reading to find out what they picked:
1. After Earth
Anna Yould: "That's two hours or more of my life I will never get back."
Banji Bagzi Eguana: "The worst movie of all time."
2. Pacific Rim
Donnchadh Grant: "Unwatchable nonsense."
Richard Field: "A rip off of just about every action movie ever made. Utter crap."
James Chivers:"Not a single good actor in that film, and even Idris Elba is phoning it in. »
The 2014 Razzie Award Nominations have been released. These awards celebrate the worst movies that have been made over the year. The main film nominated this year include After Earth, The Lone Ranger, Grown Ups 2, Movie 43 and A Madea Christmas. I agree with most of the films on the list except The Lone Ranger. Yeah it wasn't the best most, and it was a box office disaster, but it certainly wasn't one of the worst movies of the year. Other bad movies that didn't make the nomination list include Paranoia, R.I.P.D., The Canyons, and A Good Day to Die Hard.
Below you'll find the full press release with the list of nominations. Are there any other movies you think should be on on it?
