The Best of Movie Poster of the Day: Part 18

Above: 1986 Japanese poster for She’s Gotta Have It (Spike Lee, USA, 1986).In the ten months since I last did a round-up of the most popular posters on Movie Poster of the Day, two things have happened. I’ve slacked off a bit: after running the site since November 2011 and posting one poster every single day for years, in the past year I’ve let my self-appointed task slide a little and have been posting more sporadically. And at the same time it seems that Tumblr is starting to atrophy. At its height my site had over 300,000 followers—it still does officially, but I would guess that a large percentage of those people are no longer still on Tumblr or rarely check their feed. I’m often asked why I don’t up sticks and move to Instagram instead, but while I love Instagram for personal stuff, Tumblr is still

What's Really Happening with the Friday the 13th Franchise?

It's not really a great time to be a Friday the 13th fan. The franchise has been dormant for the better part of a decade and it doesn't look like that's going to change anytime soon. When last we saw Jason Voorhees, it was on the 2009 Platinum Dunes/New Line Cinema reboot.

Part of the problem in getting another Friday the 13th movie going was figuring out what direction to take it. There were many ideas, including possibly doing a found footage version of Jason carving up teenagers. Ultimately, a reboot was settled on, coming from

The Crazies screens Midnights this weekend (January 19th and 20th) at The Moolah Theater and Lounge (3821 Lindell Blvd, St. Louis, Mo 63108) as part of Destroy the Brain’s monthly Late Nite Grindhouse film series.

Interviews: Danielle Panabaker, Joe Anderson, and Radha Mitchell -- Talking about trying to survive The Crazies in the upcoming horror film

Written by Matt Goldberg Danielle Panabaker (Becca) While she may be getting a reputation as a "Scream Queen", Danielle Panabaker seems to relish the title. Already showing off her horror chops earlier this year with "Friday the 13th" and last year with the psychological thriller "Mr. Brooks", Panabaker not only seems excited by these roles but has a genuine interest in the whole production and while she does seem accident-prone, she enjoys the physicality of the role while constantly appreciating not only the visceral horror but the thematic horror of a town under quarantine and its citizens falling victim to a terrifying virus. On the script: "I love that it starts moving right away. There are no secrets. There's something wrong in this town." On being considered a "scream-queen": "I would love to be a scream ...
