History has taught us that the transition from child star to adult actor is one of Hollywood's toughest professional hurdles, but Emma Roberts is making that evolution look effortless with wonderfully complex roles in It's Kind of a Funny Story, Scream 4, The Art of Getting By and Celeste & Jesse. Although it seems that those projects were simply set-ups for her greatest performance to date: as the wickedly wonderful Madison Montgomery on American Horror Story: Coven.
From her first vitriol-laced barb, it was clear that both the actress and her creation were not to be trifled with. Subsequent episodes have given Emma room to evolve Madison into more than your garden variety bitch as she's slyly infused all of her most venomous moments with an unmistakable insecurity and breathed luxurious lethargy into Madison's recent resurrection.
I caught up with Emma Roberts in anticipation of tonight's mid-season finale (titled Head in honor of Madame Lalaurie's decapitated dome) that »

What's your favorite scary movie? There are certainly plenty of good ones out there, but the '90s classic Scream is pretty fantastic. And because it's the weekend before halloween, and therefore the spookiest, scariest, and hauntiest weekend of the year, we thought it would be the perfect time to feature a supercut full of all the screams from the Scream franchise.

Horror writer/director Clive Barker took to his Facebook to tell everyone that – yes, we were aware that a Hellraiser remake had been contemplated, but it’s out of the realm of simple thought and we should be excited because he’s writing it.
Dimension Films, the old Weinstein-spinoff company that Bob took and developed into that studio that brought teen slasher flicks back until Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes realized they could just remake everything. Not to be outdone and let Scream 4 be the last unnecessary entry in a Dimension horror franchise, Bob and Clive decided to give Hellraiser a re-pitch, and – boy! – someone put that puzzle box together.
Barker reports from Facebook:
‘What’s your favourite scary movie?’
Director: Wes Craven
Plot: When a horror movie obsessive begins slaughtering high school students, local teen Sidney Prescott finds herself at the centre of events on the one year anniversary of her mother’s murder.
With satire as sharp as a knife, Scream took the clichés which plague the horror genre and spun them on their head. Then slit their throat. The super-meta slasher first hit the big screen in 1996 and introduced a saga that would influence scary movies for years to come. The ‘…Baby One More Time’ of horror, if you will.
Masked killer Ghostface creates a real-life horror movie inspired by an obsession with Hollywood’s darkest creations. The infamous opening scene, and arguably the scariest, encapsulates what Scream is. Drew Barrymoore answers the phone to an anonymous voice but their immediate flirting descends into threats. »

He's back and ready to play! From the filmmakers that brought you the original Child's Play comes the terrifying return of the pint-sized doll possessed by the spirit of a notorious serial killer.
When a mysterious package arrives at the house of Nica (Fiona Dourif), she doesn't give it much thought. However, after her mother's mysterious death, Nica begins to suspect that the talking, red-haired doll her visiting niece has been playing with may be the key to the ensuing bloodshed and chaos. The return of America's favorite toy, voiced again by Brad Dourif, is unrated and full of more blood-splattered thrills and chills.

One of horror cinema's most beloved franchises has had an uncertain future, but new word from megaproducer Harvey Weinstein about the Scream series should ease the nerves of fans of the spooky spoof films. "Everyone lived in Scream 4. I'm begging him to do the movie and just end it. We've milked that cow," Weinstein said of brother Bob, who leads the genre arm of Dimension Films, regarding Scream 5. There was a lot hinging on the release of Scream 4 for director Wes Craven, who intended to start a new trilogy. In 2011, we heard that Scream 5 was definitely a go, despite cocreator Kevin Williamson stating he was uninterested in furthering the story. Weinstein made the new statement during press rounds at the Zurich International Film Festival, where...

Two years have passed since Scream 4 arrived in theaters and with it, persistent rumors of a fifth film. Speaking at the Zurich International Film Festival, producer Harvey Weinstein said he wants the fifth Scream movie to wrap up the film series adding that he'd like his brother Bob to direct it. Bob Weinstein has produced all four previous Scream movies but never directed. That job has gone to horror legend Wes Craven on all four films. Harvey Weinstein adds that, "Everyone lived in Scream 4. I'm begging him to do the movie and just end it. We've milked that cow." But if you think the Weinsteins are done with the Scream franchise for good, think again. Scream will live on in the form of an MTV series which Weinstein has said would take a different...

This week brought talk of new life for two dormant horror franchises. First, Ryan Turek of ShockTillYouDrop tweeted that producers of the new "Friday the 13th" are taking pitches from writers for a found footage version of Jason Voorhees. Concurrently, Harvey Weinstein is talking about a potential fifth entry in the "Scream" series to finally end the story.
The problem is — while we can't fully support any classic horror series making the leap to overplayed style — "Scream" would make a much more compelling found footage movie.
While a found footage "Friday the 13th" reads "cash-in," an installment in the "Scream" series that embraced the format would be a way for the filmmakers and the studio get their cake and eat it too. From a purely financial standpoint, any studio holding the rights to a classic horror franchise would jump at the opportunity to make a new entry on a lower »

A selection of new pics from the upcoming premiere episode of the third season of FX's award-winning horror show 'American Horror Story: Coven' have been conjured up. The third effort which concentrates its efforts on witches and moves the action to New Orleans will no doubt be full of other genre-moulding subplots. The new pics feature stars Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates ('Misery'), Taissa Farmiga, Jamie Brewer, Emma Roberts ('Scream 4'), Evan Peters ('Kick-Ass') and Gabourey Sidibe. Co-stars on the new season include Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Alexandra Breckenridge, Frances Conroy, Denis O'Hare, Lily Rabe and Patti Lupone. The premiere episode is entitled 'Bitchcraft' and the new stills can be viewed below. »
When "Scream 4" was released, it was planned as the beginning of a new trilogy. But it grossed only $97 million worldwide on a budget of $40 million. Immediately, talks of "Scream 5" ended, showing that Dimension Films wasn't pleased with the underperforming franchise. But now, during the Zurich International Film Festival, Harvey Weinstein said that he's had conversations with his brother Bob Weinstein (head of Dimension Films) to make "Scream 5" in order to end the film franchise. "Everyone lived in 'Scream 4.' I'm begging him to do the movie and just end it. We've milked that cow," he said, adding that the plan would be to make "Scream 5" and then move on to a "Scream" TV series, which Wes Craven is directing for MTV. The TV series, however, will have little to do with the films and will deal with supernatural elements. »

For those who haven't seen Scream 4, there will be spoilers throughout the rest of this article.

"Everyone lived in Scream 4. I'm begging him to do the movie and just end it. We've milked that cow."
Back in April 2011, just before the release of Scream 4, director Wes Craven revealed that the sequel is intended to be the start of a new trilogy.

Scream 4 earned just $38.1 million at the domestic box office, and $97.1 million worldwide, from a $40 million budget.
