SCREAM QUEENS: Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan on Season 1 – Interview

SCREAM QUEENS, which has its two-huor first-season finale Tuesday at 8 PM on Fox Network, is brought to you by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, the same creative team behind GLEE. Unlike Falchuk and Murphy’s relatively serious other joint horror creation, FX’s AMERICAN HORROR STORY, now in its fifth season, SCREAM QUEENS is simultaneously an homage to and send-up of the slasher flick genre. Set in an upscale university, SCREAM QUEENS conflates the arrival of a devil-masked murderer with the order of the school’s Dean Munch – played by horror-movie icon Jamie Lee Curtis – that the most […]Read On »

SCREAM QUEENS: Jamie Lee Curtis gets back to horror roots with new Fox series – Interview

SCREAM QUEENS, which premieres Tuesday, September 22 on Fox Network, is the latest brainchild of Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk (who work together on AMERICAN HORROR STORY) and Ian Brennan (who worked with Murphy on GLEE). It’s a serialized, satirical take on the slasher genre, with a snooty sorority being terrorized by a mysterious murder and traumatized by being forced to admit – the horror! – non-snooty pledges. Jamie Lee Curtis stars as Dean Cathy Munsch, who loathes the sorority and mandates that it to become open to anyone who wants to join. Curtis has done all sorts of roles, including […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: PROM NIGHT (Special Edition)

PROM NIGHT Special Edition Blu-ray | ©2014 Synapse Films

Stars: Leslie Nielsen, Jamie Lee Curtis, Casey Stevens Writer: William Gray from a story by Robert Guza Jr. Director: Paul Lynch Distributor: Synapse Films Suggested Retail Price: $24.95 The 1980 slasher film PROM NIGHT is not a perfect movie by any means. In fact, many late 1970s and early 1980s horror films so dearly missed the mark, they’re better off not being remembered. PROM NIGHT stands somewhere in the middle. One of many slasher knock-offs to feature HALLOWEEN star Jamie Lee Curtis, the other was 1980’s TERROR TRAIN and strangely both contain many of the same problems – and strangely […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: HALLOWEEN: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION LIMITED EDITION

Distributor: Anchor Bay/Shout! Factory Suggested Retail Price: $169.99 The significance of HALLOWEEN: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION LIMITED EDITION, which brings together all 10 films under once roof, is not lost among die-hard films. The rights issues for the ten films spans several different companies and many different licensees which has made a box set like this seem more like a pipe dream in the past than a reality. Then some crazy thing happened – Anchor Bay (which controls HALLOWEEN, HALLOWEEN 4: THE RETURN OF MICHAEL MYERS and HALLOWEEN V: THE REVENGE OF MICHAEL MYERS), Miramax/The Weinstein Company which has HALLOWEEN: THE […]Read On »

CD Review: TRADING PLACES soundtrack (2,000 edition)

TRADING PLACES soundtrack | ©2011 La La Land Records

An old fogey named Elmer Bernstein became the new (and perhaps unwitting) king of youth comedy scores when filmmaker John Landis had the idea that the composer’s straight-laced, old Hollywood approach would be ideal to play the classically pompous academia who did their best to make sure Faber College had no fun of any kind. The keg smash of 1978’s ANIMAL HOUSE made Bernstein into The Man in more ways than one, tuning his often brassy approach to the height of wealth-spoofing irony- an approach that would pay huge dividends for both men ten years later with TRADING PLACES. Of […]Read On »
