Can't Hardly Wait (1998)

Daily Dead recently had the chance to speak with Byrne about how his latest film became a way to explore his own fears and insecurities—both personally and professionally—and how he enjoys trying to subvert horror fans' expectations whenever he takes the directorial reins.

Daily Dead recently had the opportunity to speak in depth with Embry about his work on the film, and he discussed the appeal of playing a conflicted father who will stop at nothing to keep his family safe.

The film stars Ethan Embry (Can't Hardly Wait, Empire Records) as "a struggling artist and metalhead who moves with his wife (Shiri Appleby) and daughter (Kiara Glasco) to a new house with a grisly history in rural Texas. Things begin to unravel for the family with the appearance of Ray (Pruitt Taylor Vince), a previous occupant of the abode and all-around disturbed-seeming personage."
As you'll see in the trailer, the film has a heart-pounding intensity that I dig. The
When four couples meet for a weekend away together, an attempt to run a “marriage intervention” goes hilariously wrong as everyone is forced to confront the secrets and fears that seem to be holding them back from finding happiness with each other.
Here, we rank a few unforgettable '90s teen movie dream girls, from just "whatever" to mind-blowingly awesome. Let it be known that rank position has nothing to do with looks (duh, they're all total Bettys), but is based on factors such as cultural impact, untouchable "it" factor, overall personality, and general badass-ery.

That could all change following a screening of the film at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery last weekend, where several cast members reunited.
Jennifer Love Hewitt led the charge for a revival after the screening, writing on Twitter: "Can't Hardly Wait reunion movie anyone? Let's get them to make it!"
