Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott Make Out on 'Sharknado' TV Spot Set

  • TMZ
Tori Spelling and her husband, Dean McDermott, aren't letting a couple police visits and a possible mental breakdown ruin their love life, especially when cameras are rolling. Tori and Dean were spotted filming a scene Monday in Malibu for what we're told is a 'Sharknado' TV spot -- perhaps as a teaser for 'Sharknado 6,' which comes out this summer. Aside from shooting off a fake laser gun with Tara Reid,

Film Review: ‘The Hurricane Heist’

Film Review: ‘The Hurricane Heist’
As anyone who’s ever set foot on a film shoot can tell you, it’s a minor miracle that any film actually gets made at all. That great films are occasionally made is a major miracle. But perhaps most miraculous of all is the film that manages to be misguided on every conceivable level, on which any reasonable person would have pulled the plug after reading any random page of the script, that somehow still makes it through the agonies of both development and production into a wide release. Tailor-made to appear on a future installment of “Mystery Science Theater 3000,” “The Hurricane Heist” is a film of that third variety, a perfect storm of deliriously watchable inanity and ineptitude. It may be a strong early candidate for the worst movie of 2018, but don’t let that deter you – bad movies this fun don’t come along every day.

‘The Hurricane Heist’ Film Review: Caper Forecast Is Stupid With a Chance of Bonkers

‘The Hurricane Heist’ Film Review: Caper Forecast Is Stupid With a Chance of Bonkers
Critics often lament that worthy films released early in the year are too often forgotten during awards season, so let’s be very clear up front: For your Best of the Worst of 2018 consideration, in all categories, “The Hurricane Heist.” A “Sharknado” movie minus the fish, this mess is somehow the work of director Rob Cohen, who could once upon a time muster up junky entertainments like “xXx” and the original “The Fast and the Furious.” Now he’s managed to outdo such hilarious recent efforts as “Alex Cross” and “The Boy Next Door” with a laughable caper wherein the good...

'The Hurricane Heist': Film Review

'The Hurricane Heist': Film Review
When watching a disaster-thriller hybrid such as The Hurricane Heist, you can almost hear the bro-tastic Hollywood pitch sessions that spawned this kind of high-concept enterprise: “It’s Heat meets Twister!” “The Bank Job meets The Perfect Storm!” "Fast Five, but it’s set during Katrina!" "It’s Sharknado, but instead of sharks, there’s $600 million in cash and a bunch of actors speaking with questionable Southern accents!"

The latter probably comes closest to describing action veteran Rob Cohen’s dumb and mildly fun mashup, which has the xXx and The Fast and the Furious director doing what he does best: making people, cars and...

“Sharknado 6” Will Be a Time Traveling Adventure

Would it be too much too ask if Sharknado 6 could be a time traveling adventure that could travel back to say, the first movie, so the Sharknado’s past and present can meet and possibly cancel each other out? No? Okay, thought I’d ask. This has to be one of the only movies that openly celebrates being so dumb that people like it. It’s not even possible to bash the movie any longer since it’s already been called out for how insane it is and how utterly lacking it is as far as having any redeemable qualities. So they’re going

First Sharknado 6 Poster Arrives, Plot Promises Nazis and Dinosaurs

Sharknado 6 is definitely happening and the first plot details have arrived online to prove it. SyFy has found themselves a reliable franchise with Sharknado, with the network cranking out one of these a year since 2013. What started as a self-aware B-movie has morphed into an utterly ridiculous franchise that has to keep finding ways to get even more ridiculous in order to justify its existence. Case in point, Sharknado 6 is going to involve time-travel and as a result, we're going to see dinosaurs, Nazis and Noah's Ark.

This all comes from the first plot synopsis for Sharknado 6, which doesn't have an official title yet. Though, if history tells us anything, SyFy will come up with something that includes a topical pun. For example, the fourth movie was titled Sharknado: The 4th Awakens and was released several months after Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters. In any case, here's the

In the future, 98% of the Earth is covered by water and the only land is controlled by a warlord and his army of sharks. Humans are kept as food for the sharks until two friends risk their lives – one of whom is a “shark caller” with a supernatural ability to talk to sharks Fyi(!) – to rise against their captor and his legion of sharks.

Hold on, hold on… So we have a world covered in water. What water there is happens to be over run by sharks. And people live on floating islands, a la Waterworld, to survive. Errr, haven’t we seen this before? I think so! In fact,

‘Death House’ Interview: Yan Birch

With the highly-anticipated horror Death House being released in cinemas on 23rd February 2018, I got a chance to speak with actor Yan Birch about the legacy of People Under the Stairs (1991), his character in Death House and hanging out with friends on the set.

How did you first get into acting?

My father was in the business in Sweden. Mostly Cabarets and Comedy shows. He was also a musician, so I grew up in a very creative arts environment. I started with music and then moved on to hosting a TV-Show in my teens. Then it continued from there.

You have had various roles over your career, but you are best known for your performance the Stairmaster from People Under the Stairs (1991). Did you think that the character would still be so popular over 25 years later?

I had no idea that anything like this would happen… I did know anything

Jason Statham’s Killer Shark Movie The Meg Introduces Its Bait

Imagine a really big shark. No, bigger than that. Really big. I can guarantee that whatever you’re picturing would still be but a snack for the gargantuan menace of The Meg. This upcoming shark caper is the next project from The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and National Treasure: Book of Secrets director John Turteltaub, who sounds like he’s way overdue changing his name to John Sharkeltaub.

Based on Steve Alten’s 1997 book Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror, the movie follows the crew of a deep sea submersible as they’re menaced by a giant, hungry monster. Said monster turns out to be a prehistoric Megalodon (hence ‘The Meg’), and its colossal razor-sharp jaws leave the sub trapped on the ocean floor. Only one man can face down ‘The Meg’ and save the crew, and he comes in the form of Jason Statham.

He’s got a past beef with this shark,

The Disaster Artist inspires our list of the top 5 bad cult moviesThe Disaster Artist inspires our list of the top 5 bad cult moviesScott Goodyer11/17/2017 2:30:00 Pm

James Franco's The Disaster Artist is just around the corner. The hilarious comedy is the behind-the-scenes story of the making of the 2003 cult classic movie The Room. Self-funded by the unknown Hollywood wannabe Tommy Wiseau, who also wrote, directed and starred in The Roomit was a major flop but instant cult classic as word of mouth quickly spread on how ridiculously funny this serious drama was.

So what makes The Rooma cult hit? The same elements that elevate other bad movies which suffer from well-intentioned but off-the-mark writing and acting. It's hard to pin down, but we think in this particular case it's Wiseau's oddball personality that makes The Room stand out—and Franco's interpretation of it that makes The Disaster Artist

‘Snake Outta Compton’: A Massive Mutated Snake Terrorizes a Rising Rap Crew in Insane New Trailer — Watch

‘Snake Outta Compton’: A Massive Mutated Snake Terrorizes a Rising Rap Crew in Insane New Trailer — Watch
You can practically hear the pitch meeting roaring off the screen: “It’s ‘Snakes on a Plane’ meets ‘Straight Outta Compton,’ with a generous dash of ‘Sharknado,’ just for added bite!” Such is the premise and tone of Hank Braxtan’s upcoming “Snake Outta Compton.” From the looks of its first trailer, it appears that that comedy is going to deliver on that promise, no matter if it was a good idea or not.

The film follows a scrappy young rap group on the verge of making it — they’re just days away from signing a major record deal, presumably one that will rocket them into the big time — who unexpectedly run afoul of another Compton resident: a massive mutated snake who will not stop growing after a homespun experiment gone totally awry, and apparently has quite a bad attitude to boot. If you’re going to make a massive mutated snake,

Andy the Talking Hedgehog: the strange story behind the year's least Oscar-worthy film

Related: Sharknado 5’s Tara Reid: ‘It can get abusive. There’s a lot of bullying’

No journalist likes to admit this, but I recently blew a scoop. Last month I had to interview Tara Reid about Sharknado 5. I’d planned to ask her about some of her upcoming roles – in films with titles such as Party Bus to Hell, United Colors of Bennett Song and Andy the Talking Hedgehog – but before I could get there, Reid cut me off with what sounded like a well-practised wrap-up speech.
