Any true horror fan or cinephile knows what ties the iconic horror films Psycho and Halloween together. But for those who may not be aware, we’ll enlighten you.
The 1960 film from Alfred Hitchcock stars Janet Leigh as Marion Crane while the 1978 slasher from John Carpenter stars Jamie Lee Curtis. The former was one of the earliest scream queens in cinema’s history while the latter gained the status in the 70s and 80s, only to reprise it in the late 90s with Halloween: H20. But their real link is that Janet Leigh is Jamie Lee Curtis’ mother.
And as a tribute to her iconic mother, Jamie Lee Curtis has recreated the iconic shower scene that nearly everyone should be familiar with by now in an image that teases an homage scene from the upcoming Fox horror comedy series Scream Queens, in which Curtis is one of the stars. Read More »

After District 9, Elysium and Chappie director Neill Blomkamp teased concept art from an Alien franchise movie that he’d been working on outside of 20the Century Fox, the studio decided to pick up the sci-fi sequel, and it’s now supposed to be his next project.
Since then, Blomkamp has only teased one more piece of concept art, and while there’s been some talk about this new movie disregarding the events of Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection, it’s not entirely clear how the new film will settle in with the previous chapters of the Alien franchise.
However, it appears Blomkamp is hard at work developing the movie as the filmmaker recently shared a photo on Instagram showing off what appears to be his own personal Alien room, with four televisions and what looks like a bunch of concept art for his forthcoming movie. Check out the cool Neill Blomkamp Alien room below! Read More »
One of Tim Burton‘s best films is still Edward Scissorhands starring Johnny Depp. This year just happens to mark the 25th anniversary of the peculiar suburban fantasy about a misfit creation named Edward who has scissors for hands who ends up being taken in by family who in many ways is just as strange as the title character. So what better time to revisit the neighborhood where Burton’s story unfolds?
Just by looking at the suburban setting of Edward Scissorhands, you would think that the entire neighborhood was a film set. But it’s a real neighborhood, and it’s still around to this very day. But it looks remarkably different than it did in 1990 with one key difference that changes its entire appearance. See the Edward Scissorhands neighborhood 25 years later after the jump! Read More »
July 4th weekend is always a bankable one at the box office. There’s always some kind of major release hitting the big screen to get people as they enjoy some time off for Independence Day, and people flock to theaters to see stuff they missed from the previous weeks or just to see something again with their friends and family.
This past weekend, Jurassic World dominated the box office for a fourth weekend in a row, edging out Pixar’s Inside Out again and keeping Magic Mike XXL and Terminator: Genisys down as well. Those are some big offerings, but back in the summer of 1985, the line-up of movies available in theaters, according to a newspaper clipping, was both impressive and much different as far as the variety of offerings.
