The Dirt trailer

Mötley Crüe, the hair/glam metal band that became a sensation in the 1980s with songs like “Kickstart My Heart,” “Dr. Feelgood,” and “Girls, Girls, Girls,” released a book in 2001 called The Dirt that recounted their excessive off-stage exploits in graphic detail. That book has been in development as a movie for years: Borat director Larry Charles once wanted to make an NC-17 adaptation, but now it’s finally been brought to life by Jackass director Jeff Tremaine.

Check out the first The Dirt trailer below, which stars Douglas Booth (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) as Nikki Sixx, Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones‘ Ramsay Bolton) as Mick Mars, Colson Baker/Machine Gun Kelly (Bird Box) as Tommy Lee, and Daniel Webber (The Punisher) as Vince Neil.

Valentine's Day Horror Movies

(Welcome to Now Scream This, a column where horror experts Chris Evangelista and Matt Donato tell you what scary, spooky, and spine-tingling movies are streaming and where you can watch them.)

Matt: Valentine’s Day was last week, but why not present your sweetheart the greatest gift of all this week? A night of zero complications, pajamas, and streaming horror movies with an emphasis on love, crushes, and content that’d make Cupid cringe. Love as a monster, love as an escape, and most of all, love as the horror genre’s richest thematic destabilization. Don’t give into Hallmark’s greedy corporate brainwashing – stay in and celebrate true love the way you deserve!

Chris: Romance is in the air! What better way to reject Greeting Card and Expensive Chocolate Day than by cuddling up with the one you love, and watching some horror? After all, what can be a better aphrodisiac than fear? As Bela Lugosi says in Ed Wood, “The pure horror, it both repels, and attracts…Take my word for it. If you want to make out with a young lady, take her to see Dracula.” In honor of Valentine’s Day (which is this week, by the way, so I sure hope you got your loved one something), Matt and I are bringing you the following romance-tinged fright flicks.

2019 Marvel Legends Figures

We’ve already highlighted a ton of the cool movie and TV-inspired toys and collectibles that were revealed at the 2019 New York Toy Fair last weekend. But much like the return of Kenner’s vintage Star Wars figures, we thought some new additions to the Marvel Legends action figure line-up from the Marvel Cinematic Universe deserved to be highlighted on their own.

This year, Marvel Comics is celebrating their 80th anniversary, and in honor of that milestone, they’re releasing some figures of characters who you might not have expected to ever see available to display on your collectibles shelf. They include fan favorite characters like Korg and The Grandmaster from Thor: Ragnarok, Luis from Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Peggy Carter from Captain America: The First Avenger. Get a look at all of the new 2019 Marvel Legends figures from the MCU below. Read More »

Blumhouse had smashing success with their sequel/reboot to Halloween, and while they still don’t have the rights to a sequel yet, they’re certainly mulling the idea. But what about other horror franchises? Could Jason Blum and company reboot more fright flicks? That’s the dream (or should I say nightmare?). In the past, Blum has mentioned a passing interest in a Scream reboot, and he hasn’t given up the idea. The mega-producer also would like to take a crack at Hellraiser. Nothing is even close to official yet, but that could change.
