It’s not Halloween yet, but we want to get you in the mood for a ghoulish good time by spending the week scaring the tuna salad out of you. With only a week left until the big day we are cramming in the creeps to maximize the remaining days of Indie Screams. Here’s what to […]

The 12 most evil movie laughs of all time (with video)

“Mua-ha-ha-ha-ha!” It’s harder to do than it seems, which makes having a decent Evil Laugh one of the most underrated skills that an actor (or inanimate object, at that) can have. We’re not interested in just “decent,” though — we want the best, and here they are, for your moustache-twirling amusement. [#12-7]   [#6-1] 12. Count Olaf […]

What are the most iconic images in film history?

What would you say to a blog post about a big honking topic from the world of cinema that’s impossible to wrap your head around in a single blog post? Would that be something you’d be interested in before you head off for the long holiday weekend? Good. I enjoyed this list from WhatCulture.com that […]

“Edmond” And Other Movies About Angry White Guys

In “Edmond”, William H. Macy plays a man who is fed up. He’s had enough and he’s not going to take it any more. When Edmond cuts loose, he goes on a crawl through the city’s underbelly of watering holes, strip clubs, gambling dens, and brothels, where he comes face to face with the violence […]

Ranting in Pictures

“‘Star Wars: The Phantom Menace’ was the most disappointing thing since my son.” That’s the daffy opening line of filmmaker Mike Stoklasa’s “‘Star Wars: The Phantom Menace’ Review,” an insightful, rudely funny takedown of George Lucas’ prequel. And it’s as good a place as any to start an appreciation of a hybrid of the video […]

The Family That Slays Together: Ten Domestic Slashers

If you feel like you’ve seen this week’s new slasher flick “The Stepfather” before, you probably have, even if you’re not a fan of the 1987 original starring “Lost”‘s Terry O’Quinn. That’s because the family-bands-together-to-fend-off-the-one-member-who-turns-on-the-rest trope is at the heart of dozens of horror movies. Need proof? Here’s a list of ten different types of […]

You always adapt the ones you love.

Is David Foster Wallace really as adaptation-proof as everyone’s always said? The mediocre reviews for John Krasinski’s “Brief Interviews with Hideous Men” aren’t exactly encouraging on that front. At the Guardian, Danny Leigh believes that the film’s problems lie partially in the book Krasinski chose, a short story collection that’s no place for novices to […]

Haunted House Alternatives

Haunted houses — those old things? Sure, they’re a staple setting for horror films, but they’ve been done to (un)death. Fortunately for anyone looking for ghostly thrills beyond the creepy manse on the hill where all those terrible things happened that one time, horror flicks have also ventured out into just about every location that […]
