The 18 Best Performances in Horror Movies — IndieWire Critics Survey

(Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday.

Reactions to Ari Aster’s “Midsommar” predictably run the gamut, but there seems to be a general consensus that Florence Pugh is fantastic in the lead role. In the aftermath of Toni Collette’s work in “Hereditary,” and Essie Davis’ memorable turn in “The Babadook,” there’s been something of a renewed appreciation for horror movies as a vehicle for strong performances.

This week’s question: What is the best and/or most indelible performance you’ve seen in a horror film, and how did it leverage the genre to accomplish something that might not have been possible in a more grounded type of movie?

Isabelle Adjani in “Possession

Henry Winkler Looks Back on His Iconic Scream Death Scene

Henry Winkler Looks Back on His Iconic Scream Death Scene
Henry Winkler once appeared in an uncredited role for the 1996 slasher movie Scream, and the actor recently opened up on what it took to film his iconic death scene. The former Happy Days star might be an Emmy-winning actor based on his performance in the Showtime series Barry, but horror fans still fondly remember him as Principal Himbry in the popular horror movie.

Perhaps because dying in a slasher movie was new territory for him, Henry Winkler revealed that his death scream was at first inefficient. After some direct coaching from director Wes Craven, however, Winkler got further into the character and totally nailed the principal's demise.

"This one shot, with the bad guy with the mask coming into my eyeball, it took two hours to shoot. As he was stabbing me, Wes, in his professorial way, came up and he said, 'Do you think it might be more excruciating?

Disney And Lantern Near Settlement For Weinstein Co. Film And TV Projects

  • Deadline
As Lantern Entertainment looks to fully exploit the assets it acquired as part of its $289 million acquisition of The Weinstein Company assets, it is close to reaching a significant settlement with Disney, a stakeholder in some of the company’s film and titles.

A person familiar with the discussions between Lantern and Disney characterized them as constructive and among many similar negotiations happening with other rights-holders, with the goal of removing any objections and disputes. The conversations toward a settlement were reported by Disney in a filing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware.

Disney has separately maintained that Weinstein Co. owes it $6.8 million in outstanding payments connected to films Lantern did not pick up, including Scream 4 and The Matador.

Harvey and Bob Weinstein sold Miramax to Disney in 1993, eventually parting ways with the company a decade later and launching their own eponymous company in 2005. The Weinstein Co. filed

Scream and Hellraiser Reboots Considered at Blumhouse, Nothing Happening Yet

Could Blumhouse revive Scream and Hellraiser next? Blumhouse Productions has made a serious name for themselves in recent years. The studio produces micro-budget horror movies that often spawn franchises like Paranormal Activity or The Purge. They also churn out huge hits such as Get Out and Split, just to name a couple. Last year, they revived Michael Myers on the big screen with Halloween, which was made in partnership with Miramax. As it happens, that may have opened a much larger door.

Jason Blum, head of Blumhouse, has expressed his desire to take on other known franchises in the past, having specifically cited Scream, as well as The Crow and Friday the 13th. During a recent interview to promote Happy Death Day 2U, Blum was asked specifically about Scream and Hellraiser, since they're both under the Miramax banner. Here's what Blum had to say about it.

Yes, we definitely have [discussed it]. We're looking,

Lords of Chaos Poster Turns Rory Culkin Into a Norwegian Black Metal Maniac

Lords of Chaos Poster Turns Rory Culkin Into a Norwegian Black Metal Maniac
I love a good poster about as much as I love a good death metal tune. And so it pleases me that today we can pass along the poster for director Jonas Akerlund's Lords of Chaos starring Rory Culkin, Emory Cohen, Sky Ferreira, Jack Kilmer, and Valter Skarsgard. For those of you that might not be aware of the film or its killer backstory, Lords of Chaos is based on the 1998 non-fiction book of the same name by Michael Moynihan and Didrik Soderlind, which follows a series of crimes that occurred in Oslo, Norway in the early 1990s surrounding the black metal bands Mayhem and Burzum.

The film premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival and has been snagging up awesome reviews and killer word-of-mouth ever since. In fact, the movie currently holds a 91% fresh rating over on Rotten Tomatoes. The site doesn't currently have a Critics Consensus but the score

David Arquette Wants Scream 5 to Be a Tribute to Wes Craven

Halloween (2018) may have surpassed Scream (1996) as top-grossing slasher movie in history, but don’t count Ghostface out just yet. Though the franchise is technically still alive in the form of a TV Series, there hasn’t been a new Scream flick since 2011’s soft-reboot (aka Scream 4). If David Arquette has his druthers, though, Deputy […]

David Arquette Would Love For Scream 5 To Happen

Due to its unique meta edge, the Scream franchise has always been one of the most successful horror series around, crossing over to achieve a lot of mainstream appeal – 2018’s Halloween has only just knocked the first entry from its top spot as the highest-grossing slasher. So we definitely wouldn’t rule out the possibility of a Scream 5.

Ghostface was last seen slashing his way through the cast back in 2011’s Scream 4 and though there were murmurs of a follow-up in the years after that, any plans that existed were respectfully rested after director Wes Craven passed away in 2015. However, the brand survives in the form of the Scream TV show and there’s clearly potential for the project to continue on with another filmmaker at the helm.

One cast member who’d certainly love to return is David Arquette. The actor played Danger-prone deputy Dewey Riley in all four movies,

If Scream 5 Happens, David Arquette Definitely Wants to Return

If Scream 5 Happens, David Arquette Definitely Wants to Return
When legendary director Wes Craven passed away in 2015, the horror genre was forever changed. His final film wound up being 2011's Scream 4, the final installment in a series which saw Craven directing each sequel. With Craven gone, chances of a fifth Scream movie seem a bit unlikely, as filling the shoes of such an icon is extremely difficult for any filmmaker. Still, should a potential Scream 5 ever go into production, you can count on seeing franchise star David Arquette returning to once again play the most loveable cop in Woodsboro.

Speaking in a recent podcast, Arquette recognized the trouble in doing another sequel without Wes Craven at the helm. This echoes what co-star Neve Campbell has previously said about the concept, feeling it might be too difficult to pull off under the creative guidance of someone else. Still, Arquette feels the late director would still be a part of the project in spirit,

Neve Campbell Not Ruling Out A Return To The Scream Franchise

Scream‘s Sydney Prescott is easily one of the great Final Girls in the horror genre. What made her stand out above the pack was Neve Campbell’s stellar performance, as the actress carved her character out into a strong, three-dimensional person. What’s more, she managed to get through all four movies in the series still standing.

The last time Campbell played Sydney was back in 2011’s Scream 4, whose underwhelming box office take and reception ended up scuppering plans for a revived trilogy. But would the actress consider returning to the franchise for a fifth film? Campbell was promoting her latest project, Skyscraper, while talking with Kinowetter when the topic of Scream inevitably came up. She said that she thinks it would be hard to do another without the involvement of the late, great Wes Craven, but stopped short of ruling out the possibility.

“Well, ya know, I think it would be challenging…

Neve Campbell Talks Being Typecast as a Horror Actress After ‘Scream’ and Leaving Hollywood Behind
Neve Campbell was one of the hottest actresses in the late ’90s, leading Wes Craven’s Scream franchise as heroine Sidney Prescott and further cementing her status as a ’90s icon with The Craft and “Party of Five.” But aside from reprising the role of Sidney in 2011’s Scream 4, Campbell wasn’t exactly a staple of post-’90s Hollywood… […]
