Article: Happy Halloween! Watch “The Eye” “Venom” and “Cursed” today

Thirteen(ish) actors who left a film franchise and then returned

Article: Thirteen(ish) actors who left a film franchise and then returned

Who says you can’t go home again? If home is a popular movie franchise, you definitely can, as proved by the members of the following list. This is a topic we explored a few years ago here on IFC.com, but that list is already hopelessly out-of-date. With today’s release of “Underworld: Awakening” — featuring the…

Freddy Krueger coming to “Mortal Kombat”

Article: Freddy Krueger coming to “Mortal Kombat”

If fighting games are good for one thing–aside from illogically bouncing boobs–it’s throwing in wildly unrelated characters into their to-the-death tournaments. Memorable examples can be found in the very existence of the “Marvel vs. Capcom” series and the “King of Fighters” franchise, which lumps together brawlers from several disparate arcade titles in games that often…

The Five Scariest Wes Craven Movies

Article: The Five Scariest Wes Craven Movies

Tonight at 10:30 p.m. ET we are showing Wes Craven’s teen werewolf flick “Cursed.” The movie stars Jesse Eisenberg (you know, from “The Social Network” and “Zombieland”) and Christina Ricci (“The Opposite of Sex” and “The Addams Family”) as two siblings who have to battle a werewolf that has been wreaking havoc on their neighbors,…

What to Watch on IFC: April 25 – May 1

Article: What to Watch on IFC: April 25 – May 1

The April showers are unending and the May flowers haven’t started blooming, so you may as well stay inside and watch all IFC all week. Here’s what to watch on IFC this week: Monday Sit down with your loved ones to watch Derailed and make sure they never ever even consider cheating on you for…

Wes Craven Gets the Mondo “Director’s Series” Treatment

Article: Wes Craven Gets the Mondo “Director’s Series” Treatment

The fine folks at Mondo, sent over images of their latest “Director’s Series” posters, “A Nightmare on Elm Street” and “Scream,” from director Wes Craven (who — none too coincidentally — has a fourth “Scream” coming out this week) designed by artist Alex Pardee. The Craven “Director’s Series” will eventually expand to include “Swamp Thing,”…

When Religion Goes Bad: ‘The Wicker Man’ and More

Article: When Religion Goes Bad: ‘The Wicker Man’ and More

We’re showing the deliciously creepy 1974 film The Wicker Man tonight as part of Indie Screams. Not to give too much away about the film, but a very pious police officer is summoned to a distant Scottish isle to find a missing girl, but when he arrives on the island everyone claims the girl never…

What to Watch on IFC: October 18-October 24

Article: What to Watch on IFC: October 18-October 24

Do you hate Mondays? I bet you like lasagna, too. And maybe you have an enemy named Nermal? You’re not alone. Here at IFC we are working hard to make everyday less like Monday and more like Sunday when the comics are in color and The Whitest Kids U’Know are taking over your television set.…

Go Back to Wonderland with “Alice: Madness Returns”

Article: Go Back to Wonderland with “Alice: Madness Returns”

About a decade ago, iconoclastic game designer American McGee (yes, his real name) worked with a team at Electronic Arts to craft a twisted video-game version of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland.” “American McGee’s Alice” went on to become a classic, selling more than a million copies and becoming part of an influential canon of…

Casting a new generation of slasher victims, in anticipation of “Scre4m.”

Article: Casting a new generation of slasher victims, in anticipation of “Scre4m.”

In 1996, Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson gifted the world with “Scream,” the indelibly smart-ass slasher movie that works even for people who don’t like horror movies (like me) and better still for those who love them. The cast was a group of no-names — David Arquette, Matthew Lillard, Rose McGowan — plus TV folks…

“Alice in Wonderland” through the years.

Article: “Alice in Wonderland” through the years.

Screenwriter John August‘s reliably insightful blog caused a stir yesterday with a post about the misconception that he wrote the latest adaptation of the Lewis Carroll classic. It’s an understandable mistake, since August has collaborated on four films with “Alice” director Tim Burton, including “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “Big Fish.” But then, he…

When did B-movies go from bloody to bloodless?

Article: When did B-movies go from bloody to bloodless?

Having decided that a divide-and-conquer strategy is for wusses, there’s a rather sordid and protracted battle going on between Paramount and Lionsgate right now, with the studios poised for a “Paranormal Activity 2″ vs. “Saw VII” face-off on October 22nd. Lionsgate decided to get evil on Paramount’s upstart franchise by exercising an option they had…

The Sandbox: “Resident” Racism

Article: The Sandbox: “Resident” Racism

This wasn’t the type of horror “Resident Evil 5″ was trying to elicit. Long-brewing controversy over the latest installment of Capcom’s genre-defining survival horror series reached its high point two weeks ago, when the sure-to-be-blockbuster title hit retail shelves and millions were allowed the opportunity to determine for themselves whether, as some pundits had insinuated…

Recession, Depression and Just Plain Depressing

Article: Recession, Depression and Just Plain Depressing

After a couple of months that for all intents and purposes defined “moribund,” actual moviegoing, at least in the major cities, is getting interesting again, with several masterworks or near-masterworks creeping into theaters. Jan Troell’s scrupulous, beautiful “Everlasting Moments,” Olivier Assayas’ genuinely Renoir-esque “Summer Hours” and Philippe Garrel’s blunt, idiosyncratic “Frontier of Dawn” are all…

Of Soldiers, Playmates and Poets

Article: Of Soldiers, Playmates and Poets

This week sees, for once, nothing imported from Russia and nothing opening in 3D. Hmmm…signs and portents. Download this in audio form (MP3: 7:43 minutes, 10.6 MB) Subscribe to the In Theaters podcast: [XML] [iTunes] “Brothers at War” While his very premise negates a documentarian’s objectivity, filmmaker Jake Rademacher brings an intimacy and affection to…
