ABC’s Marcia Clark Drama Pilot Casts Robin Tunney in Lead Role
Robin Tunney has been cast in the lead role of the ABC drama pilot “The Fix,” which boasts former O.J. Simpson prosecutor Marcia Clark among its writers and executive producers.

New movies are coming to Netflix, which means some titles are also on their way out.

Film Review: ‘Half Magic’

Film Review: ‘Half Magic’
“I’m not saying I’m against women’s rights, I’m just saying there’s no market for their films,” insists vainglorious action star Peter (Chris D’Elia) to his miserable development assistant and girlfriend Honey (Heather Graham). He’s a ridiculous man and it’s a ridiculous line, but one suspects that Graham, here making her writing and directing debut after decades as eye candy, has heard similar riffs during her career. Her Wiccan romantic comedy “Half Magic” is one part wish fulfillment, two parts justified fury. When Peter sneers, “Your directing career hasn’t gotten off the ground yet because you look like a big-booby dummy,” it’s too easy to picture Graham going home from yet another lousy meeting to furiously type out frustrations which play out here in all-caps Comic Sans.

The question is: Can Graham prove powerful people like Peter wrong? She’s made a proudly feminine film about three friends

The Craft (1996)

Teen movies might want you to believe that high school was all about keggers and beautiful cheerleaders, but we prefer The Craft’s version of events. Featuring a quartet of angsty teens who turn to witchcraft in the face of personal high school horrors, The Craft casts a spell that leaves you wishing you had an

Drive-In Dust Offs: Bad Dreams (1988)

Cults and their leaders have always equally repulsed, fascinated, and terrified me. The repulsion and terror are obvious markers for any sane person, but some would rather not have it in their lives at all, thank you very much. This is also a lucid and healthy response. But in horror we look for the cathartic in the carnal; and while Bad Dreams (1988) spends a great deal of effort mining a very similar vein as A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987), it succeeds in carving out its own modest slice in the late ‘80s landscape.

Released stateside in April by Twentieth Century Fox, Bad Dreams made back its $4 million dollar budget opening weekend, but petered out after it pulled in just over $9 million total. A profit, yes, but not the big numbers they were hoping for based on what they thought was a foolproof Elm Street format. Oh, and

Shannon Purser Worried That Nobody Would Watch Stranger Things

Image Source: Getty Images / David M. Benett It was July 2016 when Matt and Ross Duffer introduced us to Barbara Holland via the cult show Stranger Things. Barbara, or "Barb" as she's so lovingly remembered, played by Shannon Purser, served up a relatable yet rarely represented teen who took a place in our hearts immediately. Our grief for the loss of Barb's protective personality, mom jeans, and, as Shannon puts it, "iconic glasses" even made way for the hashtag #JusticeForBarb and a Topshop t-shirt reading "Never Forget." Ahead of the release of Stranger Things season two, Shannon hosted a special Netflix event at Topshop's flagship store in London, giving fans the chance to watch new episodes in a Hawkins-themed screening room. We sat down with Shannon to discuss the show's cult status, her binge-racing behavior, and Barb's undeniable magic. Popsugar: When did you realize that Stranger Things was going to be such a megahit?

The Craft Is a Masterpiece, but the Stars Who Almost Got Cast Would've Been So Interesting

The Craft is easily one of the most underrated movies to come out of the '90s, and honestly, it just keeps getting better with age (I watched it the other day on Netflix, so I can vouch). Whispers of a reboot have been floating around for years, but in Entertainment Weekly's recent oral history of the film, a surprising piece of information about the original came to light. The casting director for the cult hit, Pam Dixon, explained that Neve Campbell was always at the top of the list for their dream cast due to her wildly popular run on Party of Five, but a handful of other rising stars almost played Bonnie instead. While Campbell brought the perfect amount of shy and awkward tics to the role, can you imagine if she'd had more of a Cher Horowitz vibe? "We tested Alicia Silverstone, Scarlett Johansson, Angelina Jolie," Dixon said.

10 Times Skeet Ulrich Mesmerized You With His Creepily Sexy Smirk
You may know Skeet Ulrich as Fp Jones from Riverdale, but the 47-year-old actor has actually been steaming up the silver screen since the '90s. Yep, in case you can't recall (or weren't born yet), Skeet played Chris Hooker in The Craft, Billy Loomis in Scream, and Juvenal in Touch. While Skeet has undergone a series of transformations throughout the years, the one thing that's remained the same is his killer good looks. We don't know if it's his rugged scruff or his creepily sexy smirk, but there's something about him that is just so irresistible. RelatedWhy Fp and Alice Are the Og Jughead and Betty on Riverdale

Neve Campbell Reflects On ‘The Craft’ and ‘Scream’

Neve Campbell Reflects On ‘The Craft’ and ‘Scream’
Neve Campbell was seemingly everywhere in the late ’90s, becoming a household name thanks to memorable performances in The Craft, Scream (and its sequel), and Wild Things – it’s pretty crazy to think that The Craft and Scream were both released in the very same year! Over twenty years later, Campbell reflected on her two […]
