It’s that wonderful, frightful, cool and creepy time of year again, when everything including the leaves on the trees are dying and our taste buds are craving sugary sweets and pies made from the guts of our jack-o-lanterns. It’s October, which means Halloween is nearly upon us! Get you costumes completed, your home haunts constructed and your candy collected for trick’r treaters, because you have to make time to watch some of the scariest movies this time of year.
In an effort to assist you in your cinematic scare-fest, we’ve come up with a list of the scariest movies to watch on Halloween… with one caveat. We have excluded virtually all “slasher” flicks. Why? Well, let’s just say we all know them, we all love them on some level, but really… don’t we all want something more in our scary movies? In honor of »

Robert Rodriguez’s “Machete Kills” is a sequel based on an end-credits joke from a film that was itself based on a joke trailer contained within a half-joke grindhouse homage. Exactly how many degrees such an endeavor is removed from anything resembling serious cinema would require Jean Baudrillard to calculate, yet for more immediate filmgoing purposes, all there is to see here is a surprisingly long-lived gag finally running out of gas. As violent as its predecessor yet noticeably duller and less outrageous, “Machete Kills” is dragged to the finish line entirely by its director’s madcap energy and an absurd cast of major stars in strange cameos. The Open Road release will likely be well received by fans of the original, while others will be forgiven for wondering just how much longer Rodriguez’s jones for intentionally shoddy, Z-grade filmmaking deserves their continued indulgence.

Team Experience is celebrating Gay Pride with their favorite moments in gay cinema... Here's Craig (of 'Take Three' fame) on a certain seminal early 90s trip... Happy Gay Pride Weekend Everyone!
The open road and the “messed-up” faces along the way are what haunt lost hustler Mike (River Phoenix) most in My Own Private Idaho. In Gus Van Sant’s seminal 1991 gay road movie Mike trips through narcoleptic encounters with both male and female clients, Wizard of Oz-style barns crashing to the ground, talking porno mag covers, tableaux vivants sex scenes and Shakespeare’s Henry IV. His is an eventful, hardscrabble life filled with grit and longing. Each scene arouses memorable moments that every Idaho fan — gay, bi, straight or whatever it takes to have a nice day — surely still carries with them.
The most hopelessly romantic moment in the film and one of its best scenes is Mike’s campfire stopover. »

The North American box office laughed its way to the bank thanks to Universal's R-rated comedy Identity Thief, despite a massive blizzard that began Friday and crippled the Northeastern United States. The Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman comedy trampled the debut of Steven Soderbergh's latest flick Side Effects and regulated last week's champ Warm Bodies from its perch. Despite the big opening of Identity Thief, the box office was down a steep 45% from last year when four movies opened north of $20 million, including the $40 million plus debuts of The Vow and Safe House.
It got decked by the nation's critics (especially a rather cruel and insensitive review by the relic known as Rex Reed) to the tune of a 24% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but that didn't stop people from turning out en masse to watch Identity Thief. The R-rated comedy from Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon arrived on »

Weeks of elected official hot wind and a snub by the Academy Awards didn't stop Sony's Zero Dark Thirty from landing at the top spot at the North American box office this weekend. The acclaimed film's first weekend of wide release easily surpassed the openings of the parody A Haunted House and the delayed drama Gangster Squad. Overall, business continued brisk in 2013 as the top ten rose 6.3% over ticket sales from last year at this time.
After opening in five theaters to gangbuster business in mid-December, Kathryn Bigelow's War on Terror drama Zero Dark Thirty expanded to 2,937 theaters this past Friday and made the most out of the critical cheers and congressional jeers thrown at the film over the past few weeks. Thirty earned a rock solid $24 million to bring its total to $29.4 million. CinemaScore viewers gave the drama an encouraging "A-" rating, which bodes well for the film's »
