Blood Spattered Babe: Grappling with the slasher genre's violent, misogynist history

23 July 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When MTV teased the opening eight minutes of their "Scream" spinoff series late last month, I described the scene -- which depicted the brutal, jugular-spurting murder of Bella Thorne's character -- as "lazy, gratuitous and boring." I might have added "misogynistic" to the list of descriptors. It's a piece I probably wouldn't have written five years ago. My freshman year of high school, I caught a Friday-night showing of "Halloween" and "Halloween II" back-to-back -- on basic cable, with all the sex and nudity cut out. Because this is America, what remained was the violence: stabbings, impalings, deadly hot-tub scaldings, eyes gouged with hypodermic needles. I loved it all, innocently. I still do, but with less assurance. What is it that draws me to this macabre spectacle? More to the point: should I really feel good about enjoying it? The slasher film, as a rule, is a celebration of violence. »

The 23 Scariest Teen Horror Movies Ever, Ranked

7 July 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Horror filmmakers have a special fondness for shedding teenage blood.

After all, teens are horror's primary audience, so it's especially frightening -- and cathartic -- to see teens like themselves targeted by deadly evil, often just for behaving like normal adolescents. In the last four decades, movies about teens targeted by slashers have become the mainstay of movie horror.

With "The Gallows" hitting theaters this Friday -- a teen horror movie with echoes of "Carrie," "Prom Night," "I Know What You Did Last Summer," and more -- it's worth looking back at some of the most celebrated teen horror movies of all time. Just remember, don't separate from the group, and don't have sex.

Rebel Wilson Won’t Do Karaoke

19 May 2015 11:26 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Pitch Perfect 2′ star Rebel Wilson won’t do karaoke unless she is being paid to sing in a film.

The comedy actress thinks her fans assume she enjoys singing-a-long to songs in bars, because she sings in the movie – which also stars ‘Twilight’ actress Anna Kendrick, ‘Prom Night’ star Brittany Snow and Elizabeth Banks.

She told Glamour magazine: “A lot of people think – because we sing in the movie and whatever – that we would do karaoke, but I have a thing against karaoke. The microphones are never good quality, they have always been dropped, and a lot or people are screaming into them and the vocal sound quality is never the right mix and I’m like, ‘No!’ I’ll sing in a movie – when I’m getting paid.”

Although she doesn’t enjoy the pastime, Rebel has boasted that she can belt out an impressive version of Sir Elton John »

‘Discopath’ DVD Review

15 May 2015 4:24 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jeremie Earp-Lavergne, Katharine Cleland, Ingrid Falaise, Pierre Lenoir, Ivan Freud | Written and Directed by Renaud Gauthier

I’ve said it many times before and I’ve no doubt I’ll say it many times again, but Canadians know how to make damn good horror flicks and guess what? They also know how to do great retro-grindhouse flicks too! Yes Discopath, the tale of a man turned to murder by the beat, is another fantastic genre flick from the land that brought us He Knows You’re Alone, My Bloody Valentine and the more recent Antisocial.

Writer/director Renaud Gauthier made his name as a music video director, so it should come as no surprise that music features heavily in his first feature film, Discopath, an epic tale of trauma and turntables:

It’s 1976, Donna Summer tops the charts and everyone believes in mirror balls. Except Manhattan burger cook Duane »

Canadian Cult Cinema: The Overlooked & Underrated

21 April 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

You love the horror, suspense thriller, action and science fiction films that make up the world of Canadian cult cinema affectionately known as Canuxploitation.

You’ve watched the entire David Cronenberg genre filmography (if not, please do so now as The Brood, Scanners and The Fly are three of the greatest horror films ever made).

You’ve seen Black Christmas and The Changeling and watched a slasher-ific marathon of Prom Night, Terror Train, Happy Birthday to Me and My Bloody Valentine.

You caught up with Cube, the Ginger Snaps series, Splice, Hobo with a Shotgun and WolfCop all while keeping close tabs on the works of Astron-6.

Yet your hunger for Canadian genre film productions and co-productions cannot be satiated.

To aid you in your deeper exploration of the field, following is a chronological look at a number of Canadian genre films that simply don’t get enough attention.

Prom Night Wisdom, Don’t Be In Such A Rush To Drink

17 April 2015 11:09 AM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

‘…Extrication will be needed…” -Law Officer Falber in recorded scene of Prom night car accident Drinking seems to be the universal right of passage and hallmark for many kids to show they’re heading into adulthood, or just to blow off steam and break the ice and ease social anxiety. But so many teens are simply not equipped emotionally or physically to handle the repercussions of alcohol, and as such they do not drink responsibly.How many people have stories of excess from their youth that they hang their head in shame over? These people are the lucky ones, here to share […] »

Brittany Snow Gets The Boot in Hilarious Lipton Promo, Says She's Been Dissed By A Director Before!

19 March 2015 2:15 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Brittany Snow has a great sense of humor!  The "Pitch Perfect 2" actress stars in a brand new commercial for Lipton, where she freaks out on set after being fired by the director.  In the funny promo, the actress is auditioning for a spot in Lipton's "Bubble" commercial ... but things take a turn for the worse when she continues to mess up her lines and eventually loses her cool.  Turns out, this isn't the first time the "Prom Night" star has been dissed by a director! Snow revealed in a statement to toofab that, while she's never experienced anything quite as bad as the director in the commercial, she has been teased on set before.  "I don't think anyone has been that rude to me like the director in the spot was. I have been told by a director once... 'Ok, this time you did the scene wasn't That bad. »

Enderby Ent Whips Up ‘The Storm’ Under New Production Fund – Berlin

8 February 2015 2:52 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Exclusive: La-based indie Enderby Entertainment has set a new production fund to finance two to four projects annually from various domestic and international partners with budgets of up to $15M. The first to be greenlit is Texas-set thriller The Storm. Nelson McCormick (The Stepfather, Prom Night) is directing from a script by Josh Campbell. Enderby partner Rick Dugdale will produce with Peter Toumasis; Enderby’s Daniel Petrie Jr (Beverly Hills Cop) is executive producing. Slated to shoot later this year, the film takes place in the midst of Texas storm season as a cold-blooded criminal seeks revenge on the small town sheriff who sent him to prison a decade earlier. With the sheriff mortally wounded, only an inexperienced deputy is left to protect the locals who are caught in the crossfire after a tornado rips through the town, cutting it off from the outside world.

“We are excited to start financing new projects at Enderby, »

'A Nightmare on Elm Street' (2010): A Defense

4 January 2015 12:42 AM, PST | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

by Grace Fontaine

MoreHorror.com

You know what? I liked it. No, it has absolutely no bearing in the classic or on the better sequels produced, but I enjoyed it.

I Said, I Enjoyed This Movie!!! *beats chest*

Before I get pelted with criticism and "How Dar U!1!" messages, please indulge me.

I saw the original Elm Street when I was 24 years old, and by then, I had just about seen it all in terms of horror/gore/suspense. I got a buzz (tee hee) from the first 'Saw' and my perceptions about what was real and what was not changed when I watched the magnificent 'Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me'. So when I slapped Craven's seminal classic into the DVD player, I wasn't scared or shocked. Now please don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and I thought that Robert Englund is revered by horror lovers quite rightly. »
