Ten Terrible Movie Titles

  • Cinelinx
Movie titles don’t necessarily make or break a movie on their own, but this is a look at ten movies where their titles didn’t do them any favors.

In the realm of zaney movie titles, I can appreciate those that are trying to be fun or silly, like 1964’s The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed Up Zombies or even Dude, Where’s My Car? Those are passable because they actually give you an idea of what to expect while perhaps generating a chuckle or a shake of the head. I can even deal with lame puns and wordplay in titles, as long as they make sense for the material at hand. Examples include Blacula! or Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties. Even titles that are so straightforward they end up being dumb aren’t lying or misleading to us, and so they shouldn’t

"Conjuring" Crew Talk A Possible Third Film

At the world premiere of "The Conjuring" sequel on Tuesday night, the cast and crew were on hand to talk about not just the new film but about the chances of the franchise continuing.

Certainly all those involved seem keen on a third one. Screenwriters Chad and Carey Hayes say they "definitely have a third in mind," actress Vera Farmiga said "just ask me".

The film's director James Wan was more hesitant but still open to the idea: "It depends on what happens this weekend... there could be many more movies because the Warrens have so many stories."

The films are based on the stories of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) with their most famous case being the Amityville Horror, the events of which take place between the first and second "Conjuring" film and won't likely form a part of this series.

The Jump Scare: A Defence

Edward Gardiner with a defence of the jump scare…

The Conjuring is a horror movie for people who don’t like horror movies.”

I like Mark Kermode. He’s one of the most respected film critics working today because of a fantastic (and rare) combination of insight, humour and honesty, and a genuine love for film, which has propelled him to the top of his profession – not to mention an enviable knowledge of the subject . I’ll listen to anything he says, read anything he writes, watch anything he makes. I respect his opinion whether I agree with it or not; in fact, one of the most enjoyable things about listening to the Wittertainment podcast he does with Simon Mayo every Friday is hearing him wax lyrically about a film I didn’t warm to, or vice versa, because I enjoy weighing up my opinion against someone who always has

Joy movie review: a mess to be mopped up

Even the miscasting of Jennifer Lawrence takes a backseat to the forced quirkiness, which David O. Russell cannot get his cast on the same page with. I’m “biast” (pro): love Jennifer Lawrence

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Oh no. Does David O. Russell have his first dud on his hands? I know lots of people aren’t thrilled with his 2004 film I Heart Huckabees (I like it), but for the first time since he realized that Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper belong onscreen together — theirs is a chemistry that will be the stuff of Hollywood legend, I have no doubt — the result is something that never quite gels. Russell isn’t wrong about Lawrence and Cooper: it’s only when they are paired up here that the movie comes alive. But they’re not paired up onscreen anywhere

The True Stories Behind 10 Unforgettable Horror Movies

  • Moviefone
Whether you're a fright fanatic, a middle-of-the-row horror fan, or a "someone-dragged-me-here" who barely watches from between terrified, trembling fingers, you've probably noticed an interesting trend: a lot of recent horror movies are based on true stories. At least that's what the filmmakers would have us believe.

The all-too-common "based on a true story" or "based on true events," along with the less reliable "inspired by true events," have become ubiquitous additions to most horror movie marketing campaigns. But this is nothing new. Going all the way back to the "Texas Chainsaw Massacre's" iconic 1974 tagline -- "What happened is true. Now the motion picture that's just as real." -- the truth has always been an important tactic in upping the fear factor for audiences.

If events truly did happen, does that make it more frightening? The recent success of movies like "The Conjuring" (2013), "The Possession" (2012) and "The Haunting in Connecticut" (2009) point to a big "yes,
