Featuring narration from The Craft's Fairuza Balk (and with clips of Robin Tunney, Devon Sawa and co), it made us feel a sudden pang of nostalgia and sent us on our own trip down memory lane to find out where they - and the rest of the '90s teen movie crew - are now.

So, here are 11 stars from some of our favourite '90s teen movies, and what they've gone on to do since:

Frightfest 2014: ‘Blood Moon’ Review

Stars: Ian Whyte, George Blagden, Anna Skellern, Corey Johnson, Shaun Dooley, Jack Fox, Eleanor Matsuura, David Sterne, Amber Jean Rowan | Written by Alan Wightman | Directed by Jeremy Wooding

It’s safe to say horror westerns don’t have the best track record. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a good amount of decent examples out there such as Grim Prarie Tales, Ravenous, Dead Birds and The Burrowers.

Given that, it was with a sense of trepidation that I approached Blood Moon

Set in Colorado in 1887, Blood Moon sees a stagecoach full of strange passengers and an enigmatic gunslinger Calhoun (Dooley) find themselves prisoners of two desperate outlaws on the run. As the prairie travellers attempt to outwit the outlaws in any way they can it soon
