How Horror Movies Helped Me Grow Up in a Single-Parent Home

7 September 2016 4:02 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

First of all, before I start this, I just want to point out that my childhood, despite various factors, was still really great and I’m truly grateful that I grew up the way that I did. My circumstances allowed me to learn a lot and grow to be fiercely independent, and much of that is still something that I carry with me. But the reality is that I did grow up in a home with only a single mom (for most of the time), which meant my childhood was a lot different than many kids I grew up with. And at times, I felt like the odd girl out—but all that changed when I really got into horror.

I spent the first 14 years of my life living in a trailer park in Des Plaines, Illinois, practically a stone’s throw away from the O’Hare International Airport. We »

Newswire: A cadre of horror legends assembles for Rock Paper Dead

26 August 2016 3:28 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

A new film called Rock Paper Dead is assembling a Dirty Quartet of horror talent, led by Fright Night director Tom Holland. Scheduled for a 2017 release, the film concerns serial killer Peter Harris, a.k.a. “The Doll Maker,” who returns home after a 20-year stint in a mental institution. Of course, in this kind of film, the treatment rarely pans out, and soon Harris is besieged by tortured memories from a much rougher-than-average childhood before returning to his murderous ways and setting his sights on a young woman named Ashley.

Director Holland is no stranger to creepy dolls, having brought Chucky to movie screens as the writer and director of 1987’s Child’s Play. Holland also is no slouch when it comes to presumably reformed mass murders, having penned Psycho II in 1983. While the film certainly sounds creepy on paper, Holland is known for the gallows ...

David Tennant Signs On For Dean Devlin’s Bad Samaritan

26 August 2016 9:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As a writer and producer, Dean Devlin has had a hand in some of the highest profile projects of the last quarter of a century. Universal Soldier, Stargate, Independence Day, Godzilla – all have been revisited repeatedly by Devlin and others, in numerous media. This is why – even though he is not the most prolific filmmaker – when he sets up a new property, people pay attention. We pay even more attention, when he casts an actor like David Tennant (Doctor Who, Jessica Jones), in a thriller like Bad Samaritan.

The script comes from Brandon Boyce, who previously wrote effective dramas Apt Pupil and Wicker Park. It centres on two young men working as car valets, who use their position to rob the homes of their customers. Inevitably, they eventually rob the wrong home, and face some unexpected consequences.

The first thing that is very clear about this movie is that it is about men. »

Interview: Dave Franco On Playing a Heartthrob in 'Nerve,' Emma Roberts' Brutal Honesty and More

29 July 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Dave Franco is kind of a secret weapon in every movie he pops up in. At first glance he may just seem like yet another handsome guy with a disarming smile, and then he starts stealing pretty much every scene he's in with some killer comedic timing. Doesn't matter if it's Fright Night or 21 Jump Street or Neighbors, he can take a little bit of screen time and make a big difference. Imagine what he could do as a leading man. Well, now thanks to Nerve, you don't have to. It features Franco's meatiest role to date. In it he co-stars with Emma Roberts as a mysterious player in a high concept game of truth or dare that gets increasingly out of control. So not only is it a change of pace for Franco in the sense that he's no longer just a supporting player, but...

Blu-ray Review: The Return Of The Living Dead Collector’s Edition

12 July 2016 12:18 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It’s hard to believe that the same year George A. Romero released Day of the Dead, the ultra-gory, ultra-bleak conclusion of the trilogy he began with Night of the Living Dead in 1968, writer/director Dan O’Bannon was spinning Romero’s original classic into a totally new direction with The Return of the Living Dead. Whereas Romero’s film is dark and sober, Return is pure punk rock anarchy—a horror comedy that successfully manages to be equal parts horror and comedy while introducing one of the most significant elements into the zombie mythos since Romero first made them flesh-eaters 17 years earlier.

The film’s ingenious premise—which was “meta” before being meta was really a thing—is that the events of the original Night of the Living Dead really did take place and were covered up, with the zombies locked into airtight drums and left in the basement of a medical supply facility. »

Has 'Justice League' Found A Star To Play Villain Steppenwolf?

6 July 2016 7:53 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

"We're not completely closed. We're close!"

That's what Justice League producer Deborah Snyder said during a recent set visit in London. She was responding to questions about whether or not the production had cast anyone to play the film's central villain, Steppenwolf, yet. 

The production revealed Steppenwolf would be the main villain for Justice League, and a deleted scene from Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice even offered up a glimpse of what the character will look like.

Some were caught off guard by the notion that they hadn't yet cast someone to play such a pivotal role, considering that interview was conducted on the 31st day of production. You had to imagine she wasn't exaggerating when she said said how "close" they were to making a deal, because they kind of had to be. 

So who could they get? Warner Bros. has a long, storied history when it comes »

Nicolas Cage: examining his recent straight-to-dvd movies

4 July 2016 9:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Jul 5, 2016

We dig through the ten recent straight-to-dvd films of Mr Nicolas Cage. Can we find a gem in there?

The first Nicolas Cage movie I saw wasn’t one of the cool ones. It wasn’t Wild At Heart, Raising Arizona or even Valley Girl. It was the Cher rom-com, Moonstruck.

My mum, having just gone through an acrimonious divorce, was trying to drum up the optimism to find love again, and apparently that involved watching a lot of rom-coms where an idealised – or at least intrinsically whimsical – version of love prevailed over boring old steadfast responsibility.

She would watch Dirty Dancing three or four times in a day, rewinding the ending relentlessly and bawling her eyes out. A VHS of Baby Boom was worn down until the tape resembled a type of grey, flimsy nylon. I hesitate to imagine what she was projecting with repeated viewings of Overboard, »
