People in horror movies do the darndest things, don't they? We've all had a "Don't go in there, you idiot!" moment or twelve while watching fright flicks. Horror sure does bring out the stupids.
This counter-intuitive behavior makes it seem like these folks are handing over their lives on a silver platter, so in honor of this weekend's "Evil Dead" let's celebrate the good, the bad and the dumber-than-a-bag-of-hammers of the genre. Appropriately enough, our first entry comes from that franchise. Get More »
Guys, it's not like if you decide to stay in a cabin in a secluded area of the woods — oftentimes with three or four of your attractive friends — that you're all going to be killed one by one by demonic creatures/flesh-eating viruses/other people.
It's that you probably will. There's a difference. Get More »
There may be a slight possibility that standards for movie titles have become more lenient over the years, since we can't really fathom an action movie like this week's "Bullet to the Head" coming out in 1954 with a title like that. No sir.

That's why they call him Leatherback.
No, but really: You'll only see the back of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" baddie Leatherface in the new production still released today. The murderer stands, back turned to the camera in his infamous tool shed torture chamber, surveying his array of chainsaws and other tools of home improvement/bodily disfigurement. Get More »
The horror genre is always the first to jump on the bandwagon of any sort of gimmick that gets butts in the seats. Life insurance policies, 3-D, found footage, "See Paris Hilton Die" ... but let's be honest: Nothing is a better sales tool than real life.
Slap the label "Based on a True Story" in ominous red letters on that poster, and you've got yourself a surefire scare flick. People say to themselves, "Well, if it could happen to those people ..." Hang on, though, because while a storyline may have at least one toe in the waters of fact, there are varying degrees of "true" in the horror game.
We're taking a gander at the best this gambit has to offer. You can be sure that whether they happened for truthsies or not, these nine shockers have what it takes to frighten you out of your jammies. Get More »

Over the years, the many iterations of the "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" franchise have boasted a number of famous names. Renee Zellweger. Matthew McConaughey. Leatherface. And now it appears that the brand new remake of the 1974 original will boast its own famous name:
Wait, Trey Songz? Yes, as random as that sounds, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the Grammy nominated R&B singer will be making his acting debut in "Texas Chainsaw Massacre." I guess now we know what inspired the "pain" portion of his last album, "Passion, Pain and Pleasure." Get More »
If you were Leatherface, would you mess with Clint Eastwood's kid?
Yeah, you probably would. And that's exactly what's going to happen as Scott Eastwood is set to face the saw in the new 3D adventures of everyone's favorite Texas family, according to Deadline.
Eastwood joins "Percy Jackson" star Alexandra Daddario in "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D," a rebooted slaughter of sorts that takes place shortly after the events of director Tobe Hooper's original 1974 nightmare. The film will be directed by John Luessenhop ("Takers") and begins production this week in Louisiana.
We'll soon find out how well Alexandra Daddario can scream.
The "Percy Jackson & the Olympians" star is set to join the hallowed ranks of Scream Queens as she takes on the lead role in "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D," according to Variety.
This new "Texas Chainsaw" isn't a sequel to the 2003 remake starring Jessica Biel but is rather a reboot of sorts, taking place shortly after the events of the original 1974 film. The new adventures of Leatherface and his bizarre and dangerous family will be directed by John Luessenhop ("Takers"). Get More »
