'Jessabelle' Exclusive Clip: Maybe Don't Dig Up Graves Buried in Swamps
As a general rule, nothing good will ever emerge from a swamp in the bayou. Actually, if movies have taught us anything, it's that you should probably avoid swamps all together. They're either filled with gators or dead bodies or ghosts or evidence someone really, really wanted to hide. And in the case of the new horror movie Jessabelle, you're going to find more than a few of those things. Produced by Blumhouse (Insidious, Sinister) and directed by horror veteran Kevin Greutert (Saw 6 and 7), Jessabelle is about a young woman (Sarah Snook) who has to return to her childhood home after being injured in a bad car accident. And, as it turns out, more than just family and friends were waiting to say hello. There was also an evil spirit of some kind eager to have her...

Fantastic Fest: Is This the Most Disgusting Thing Ever Handed Out After a Movie Screening?
You gotta love Fantastic Fest. Not only does it celebrate some of the world's best new genre movies every year during its annual September film festival at the Alamo Drafthouse cinema in Austin, Texas, but it does so in the most creatively engaging ways possible. One of the things that separates this festival from all the rest is the lengths the people involved go to strengthen the moviegoing experience by making audiences feel like they're a part of the film they're watching. And sometimes... well, it gets a little messy. For example, in Kevin Smith's Tusk Justin Long's character is first taken hostage by a walrus-obsessed madman after he drinks tea laced with drugs that knock him unconscious. While this scene played out on-screen, the...

Watch: Steven Soderbergh Recuts 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' with Some Radical New Changes
  Mixmaster and not really retired director Steven Soderbergh has given the artsy mash-up treatment to Alfred Hitchcock and Gus Van Sant’s Psycho, and now he’s remaking a classic from the ‘80s. Soderbergh has gallantly tackled a reworking of Steven Spielberg's Raiders of the Lost Ark, giving it a new score (with lots of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross highlighted) and a black-and-white makeover. And Raiders does look amazing in monochrome—as though it was meant to be. “It’s because Douglas Slocombe shot THE LAVENDAR HILL MOB and the THE SERVANT and his stark, high-contrast lighting style was eye-popping regardless of medium," Soderbergh reminds us. So what was the point of this exercise? We’ll let the Magic Mike director...

Woman Fools Internet Pretending to Be the Real-Life Three-Breasted Character from 'Total Recall'
  Actress Lycia Naff would like to forget her role as a three-breasted prostitute in the 1990 film Total Recall, but one woman has reinvented herself as the character from the sci-fi film. Confirming that people will do anything for their 15 minutes of fame is 21-year-old "Jasmine Tridevil," who reportedly augmented her breasts with, well, a third.   The Florida resident apparently spent $20,000 on the plastic surgery. What kind of doctor would do such a thing? Apparently Tridevil met with 50 doctors before one would agree to perform the bizarre surgery (taking skin from her abdomen to graft the extra breast. And what compelled Tridevil to get the surgery? She stated it was an attempt to appear less attractive to men. “I don't want to date...

Watch: The Scariest Horror Movie for People Who Spend a Lot of Time Online
If you’re looking for privacy, you won’t find much of it online these days. Even the ads know what we’re up to. They follow us everywhere. You know how it goes: you shop for something you don’t need, add it to your cart, remove it from your cart, repeat this dance about three times, and eventually get distracted by some other thing and move on. But the ads don’t want us to forget. And every website you visit for the next week, two weeks, month, will feature that thing you don’t really need. UCBComedy and Pocketwatch feel our pain. They made a fun horror-themed short about this experience, featuring stalker-y ads that pop up everywhere. Directed by Kristopher Knight, check out Stalked by an Ad and vow to download Adblock to your...

The Stars of 'Police Academy' Are Reuniting for This Crazy Movie
We’ve survived two Sharknados, but now Syfy has a new biological threat in store for us: Lavalantula. You may be surprised to see who’s lining up to stop this latest menace. If the title didn’t give it away, the new menace to mankind are giant, fire-breathing tarantulas. Director Mike Mendez, who has experience with this sort of thing thanks to his work on Big Ass Spider, seems perfectly suited to bring this nightmare to the small screen. If the high concept doesn’t sell you (“Fire burns. Lava Bites.”), then perhaps the film’s Police Academy reunion will. That’s right, Lavalantula will feature Steve Guttenberg, Leslie Easterbrook, and Michael Winslow in major roles. We can only imagine what kind of kooky sound effects Winslow has...

Movie News: Shatner and Nimoy May Reunite for 'Star Trek 3'; 'Jurassic World' Teases a Familiar Image
Star Trek 3: While nothing has been cast yet, reportedly the script for the next installment in the Star Trek reboot could once again reach out to the original cast. This time Leonard Nimoy, as old Spock, would be reunited with William Shatner, as old Kirk, and that would mean the two appearing together for the first time since 1991's Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. It seems entirely logical as far as fan service goes. [Badass Digest]   Jurassic World: The latest teaser tweet from Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow came captioned "Autumn" and shows a familiar sign from the original Jurassic Park. This is a reminder that the sequel is set on Isla Nublar, the same island as the first attempt at a...

Joseph Gordon-Levitt May Play NSA Whistle-blower Edward Snowden
Joseph Gordon-Levitt in currently in talks to play NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden in Oliver Stone’s upcoming biopic. The Snowden Files is an adaptation of Anatoly Kucherena’s Time of the Octopus. The writer is actually Snowden’s lawyer, and as Variety explains, the book is “considered the closest thing to a documented account of the events since Snowden first released the documents.” In case you haven’t been reading the news lately, Snowden is a former U.S. intelligence analyst who released classified documents that revealed details of several covert global-surveillance programs. He is currently living in an undisclosed location in Russia and is seeking asylum for the long-term. If JGL takes the gig, production will start...

Watch: 'A Most Violent Year' Trailer Reveals One of the Worst Years in New York City's History
  We were a little disappointed when we found out that Javier Bardem dropped out of J. C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year—set during the winter of 1981, one of the most violent years on record in New York City. Bardem knows a thing or two about that kind of brutality (hello, No Country for Old Men). But after seeing the recently released trailer for the Margin Call director’s film, we’re feeling hopeful again. Inside Llewyn Davis' Oscar Isaac has since replaced Bardem, starring opposite Jessica Chastain in what looks to be a moody, caustic picture. According to IMDb, the film is “centered on a the lives of an immigrant and his family trying to expand their business and capitalize on opportunities as the rampant violence, decay and...
