When going in to see a scary movie, you usually know what you're getting, not just because you've seen the trailer or heard the buzz, but because the posters advertising the movie are completely terrifying.
The poster for the upcoming horror flick "The Last Exorcism Part II" is one of the freakiest, and the sight of Ashley Bell bending backwards (really, really backwards) inspired us to go searching for other posters that are just as creepy as the movies. We've learned that if you want to make someone have nightmares before they even step into the theater, be sure to include eerie children, missing body parts or creepy crawlies on the poster.
We recommend keeping a light on as you flip through these photos.
I don't like watching scary movies, because they scare me. The last scary movie I saw in theaters was "The Ring," during which I pretended to receive an inordinate amount of urgent text messages to divert my attention from the movie to my phone. "Ugh, another text message? (laughs in disbelief, shakes head) But I'm trying to watch this movie!" In reality, I received exactly zero text messages during the film. Get More »
Yesterday, we reported the completely non-shocking news that Eddie Murphy has officially been named the most overpaid actor of 2012 by Forbes. And this isn't exactly a new trend for Murphy, who also came in second on the list of most overpaid actors of 2011. In fact, given his mostly abysmal track record since the late 1980s, we'd have to say that poor Eddie is now in the running for the most overpaid actors of all time.
Which got us thinking: Which actors out there deserved to get some of that money that went to Murphy instead? Who are the most underpaid actors of all time? Get More »
You like "Home Alone." Heck, you may even claim to love "Home Alone."
But do you love it enough to ink a tribute to Joe Pesci into your skin, permanently?
They say that beauty is skin-deep, but there's no adage for how deep fandom goes. These 25 hardcore fans of movies from, yes, "Home Alone" to "Black Swan" proudly display their devotion on their bodies in the form of intricate ink.
Scroll on to see, and tell us in the comments how you would pay body art tribute to your favorite flick.
1. 'The Dark Knight'
When people found out what the horror film "The Human Centipede" was about, many shuddered and refused even to watch the trailer. Dutch director-writer Tom Six unleashed a movie about a mad German scientist who surgically attaches three people together mouth to anus, thus creating one gastrointestinal tract and one queasy night at the cinema. The movie is more psychological and darkly funny than gory, but some moviegoers couldn't get beyond the disturbing premise, and Six even received death threats.
"The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence)," which opens in select theaters today and will be available on On Demand, makes the first film look quaint by comparison. Six's sequel -- a stark, black-and-white horror show about a mentally challenged parking-lot attendant who worships the first film and attempts to attach 12 people together in the same way -- has already been banned in Britain. We sat down with the charming controversial director and asked him if he thinks he's gone too far. Get More »
"Is this a perverted film you've been talking about?"
So asks one of the cast members in the teaser for "The Human Centipede Part 2 (Full Sequence)." And, why, yes, it is.
Tom Six's "The Human Centipede" wasn't by any means a great film, horror or otherwise, but it managed to garner all sorts of buzz on its sicko premise alone -- it's one of those "controversial" films that gets talked about mostly by people who haven't even seen it. Get More »
We could explain in graphic detail what the first "Human Centipede" movie was about, but then we'd have to kill you… because you puked on our floor.
Apparently the prudish British censors who somehow gave the first film a pass have spit out their tea and crumpets in disgust at the sequel, and according to Empire have banned "Human Centipede II" everywhere in the UK. That means it's illegal to sell it. Damn.
What could have possibly been so filthy, so outright mortifying that the British Board of Film Classification deems it immoral for a couple of sweethearts to pop some popcorn, snuggle together on the couch, and enjoy some harmless ass-to-mouth action? Get More »
You know, when we were watching three people being connected mouth-to-backside in the super-sicko European horror movie "The Human Centipede," the thing that was running through our heads, other than a never-ending wave of nausea, was that this was treee-mendous fodder for a low-budget musical cleverly done by a bunch of college kids as a parody.
And lo, in a mere matter of years, here we have exactly such an invention. Humans truly are wondrous creatures. Get More »
