Top 10 Good Classic Scary Movies For Halloween

One of the best parts of celebrating Halloween is watching a good scary movie. Whether you are spending time with a date and want the extra cuddle time or you just enjoy scary movies, you need to take time to watch some of these classics this year. These are the top ten movies for Halloween. Poltergeist Poltergeist is one of the classic scary movies. It is creepy enough to scare some adults, but at the same time safe for kids who love to be scared, as well. This was written by Steven Spielberg and MichealGrais and instantly became a classic.

This is the movie that will keep you up at night, wishing you had never watched it. It is a classic story of demonic possession and the attempts to save the girl. Paranormal Activity Although Paranormal Activity is a fairly new release, it manages to perfectly balance the tens

'The Conjuring' Blu-Ray Giveaway!

The Conjuring 5 Things to know… INTERACTIVE GIFS! 1) The Conjuring is directed by the acclaimed James Wan, the Australian-born director of the fright-fests Insidious and the Saw series. His Twitter handle is @CreepyPuppet. Say no more. 2) The Conjuring has been given an “R” rating by the MPAA. Not because of blood, gore, or violence, but simply because it’s just so scary from start to finish! 3) The Conjuring’s cast and crew experienced creepy events during filming. Scratches appeared out of nowhere on Vera Farmiga’s computer soon after she agreed to act in the movie, the crew were routinely woken by something in the “witching hour” between 3 and 4AM, and the real-life Carolyn Perron fell and broke her hip while visiting the set. 4) The Rhode Island farmhouse where The Conjuring is set once belonged to an accused witch, Bathsheba, who tried to sacrifice her children to the devil and killed herself in 1863. 5) Hold your applause! The Conjuring will make you

A Halloween Classic: 'Ernest Scared Stupid'

Not all holiday-themed movies can hold up and stand the test of time. Now there's a decent sized list of movies that do, whether it be a Thanksgiving film like "Planes, Trains & Automobiles", a Christmas movie like "Christmas Vacation"; or, in this case, a lovable Halloween movie like "Ernest Scared Stupid". I’m sure "Ernest Scared Stupid" is not the first film that pops into your head when you think about Halloween movies, and, in fact, it's often forgotten. But make no mistake; it's a film that truly holds up due mostly to Jim Varney’s wacky alter-ego as Ernest P. Worrell. Some might argue that "Ernest Goes to Camp" is the alpha-omega Ernest movie and I can’t disagree, but there’s just something special about 1991's "Ernest Scared Stupid", one of the later films in the franchise. The plot is simple: after a misunderstanding, Ernest P. Worrell unleashes an evil troll on Halloween. Naturally, in

Official 'Wolf Creek 2' One Sheet Has Been Released

Finally, the official one sheet poster for Greg McLean's  Wolf Creek 2 has been released. “Lured by the promise of an Australian holiday, backpackers Rutger, Katarina, and Paul visit the notorious Wolf Creek Crater. Their dream Outback adventure soon becomes a horrific reality when they encounter the site’s most infamous local, the last man any traveler to the region ever wants to meet; Mick Taylor (John Jarratt). As the backpackers flee, Mick pursues them on an epic white knuckled rampage across hostile wasteland. Only one will remain to be dragged back to his lair to witness the true magnitude of his monstrosity. And if the last man standing is to have any hope of surviving where no one else has survived before, he’ll have to use every ounce of cunning to outwit the man behind the monster and become every bit as ruthless as the monster inside the man.“ I rather enjoyed the first Wolf Creek , so it's a given that I'll give the sequel a go. 

Love It Or Hate It, New 'RoboCop' Film's Tech Likely To Catch Attention

The 2014 reboot of the classic 1987 RoboCop ran into trouble with fans early on. Rumors that director Joel Kinnaman would shoot for a PG-13 rating and the early shots of a high-tech black suit had purists taking to Twitter to malign the film in 2012. A year—and several trailers later—some reviewers are willing to hold their words to see exactly what this new RoboCop has to offer, and many are interested in the modern tech that will make the film more believable for today's audiences. The Suit As with Iron Man , the most important piece of tech in RoboCop is the suit. Unlike the Stark suit, which Tony can jump in and out of at will, the RoboCop gear is less suit and more exoskeleton. The badly injured Alex Murphy is put into the suit as a way to save his life. Although he can remove certain elements, like the faceplate, he essentially becomes one with the suit. The original suit was heavy and slow; since modern audiences used to fast tech like that seen in Transformers

Kind Of Epic Show: Batfleck Was The Bomb In Phantoms Yo!

As the title suggests the Kind of Epic crew provide their thoughts on the Batman casting as well as adding their own casting dreams for the Justice League. General discussion is had in which we confirm Aquaman is indeed a badass and we talk heavily about Afleck's past work. We also tackle the question that was on the cover of USA today, Where are the Female Super Hero films? We try and discuss heroines who aren't just derivative or condescendingly weaker iterations of their male equivalents. No girl, she, or Ms. added to their titles. The possibility of a Guilermo Del Toro Zatanna film, Katee Sackhoff as Captain Marvel, and perhaps Silver Sable getting some more love in comics, film or tv. As always keep it epic!

Two Possible Titles For 'Star Wars Episode VII'

Two working titles for Star Wars Episode VII have been revealed.  But since Disney now owns them, there's no guarantee they will use any of these two -- but these are titles that George Lucas picked. And they are... 1. Star Wars Episode VII: Rise of the Jedi 2. Star Wars Episode VII: Return of the Sith Thoughts?  Personally, I like Rise of the Jedi . Source: Latino Review

The 5 Best Halloween-Themed Horror Movies

Continuing our top five lists which began back in July with the The 5 Scariest Fourth of July-Themed Movies, I give you my list for the top five Halloween-themed horror movies. Now there are a lot of movies centered around Halloween, so I thought it'd only be fitting to focus on the scary ones. After all, Halloween is supposed to be spooky, right? Now let's get this started off right, shall we... 5. Satan's Little Helper (2004) At the five-spot is a fun little horror outing directed by Jeff Lieberman, which tells the story of a young boy who, on Halloween night, is unknowingly assisting a serial killer commit a string of murders. You'll laugh, you'll'll have a good time. 4. Sleepy Hollow (1999) Based, or loosely based, on the story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by Washington Irving, 'Sleepy Hollow' tells the tale of constable Ichabod Crane (played wonderfully by Johnny Depp) who is sent to the quiet town to investigate
