Billy Connolly & 9 Other Celebs With Parkinson's Disease

September 16th, 2013 9:08pm EDT
Billy Connolly
Scottish actor and comedian Billy Connolly revealed today that he is receiving treatment for Parkinson's disease. There is no cure for the disease, which includes symptoms such as tremors and slowness of movement.

More than 1.5 million people in the United States have been diagnosed with the disease, according to The American Parkinson Disease Association.

The progressive disorder develops gradually, sometimes as just a small tremor in one hand. It also causes stiffness or soft and slurred speach, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Connolly isn't the only celebrity who has been diagnosed with...

31 Days Of Horror: 'The Masque Of The Red Death' (1964)

October 5th, 2010 12:02pm EDT
I was a bit of a lazy student in high school. When I came into 9th grade, rather than taking the honors courses I was scheduled for, I opted to take the remedial regular courses to avoid having to read Cat on a Hot Tin Roof or whatever over the summer. Summer is a time to sleep, not read a bunch of sentences and words. So, it shouldn’t come as too much of a shock that rather than try to teach a bunch of slovenly 14 year-old degenerates the elegance of the written word, my 9th and 10th grade English teacher typically just showed us the movie versions of everything, no doubt hoping to God tha...

Can 'The Wolfman' Live Up To These Werewolf Movies?

February 12th, 2010 1:11pm EST
The Wolfman
The Wolfman, inspired by the classic Universal film, premieres in theaters today. It continues the tradition of films based on lycanthropy since Werewolf of London in 1935. There has been a plethora of werewolf films since, and here are some particularly memorable ones.

Dog Soldiers: Like 28 Days Later, Dog Soldiers was a gritty horror movie from overseas that helped resurrect the genre for another decade. Dog Soldiers also helped boost its director's career - Neil Marshall has since directed horror films The Descent and Doomsday. 28 Days Later's director, Danny Boyle, has since helmed h...

Review: MoMA's Tim Burton Exhibit

December 1st, 2009 3:04pm EST
MoMA
The Tim Burton exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) opened this past Sunday in New York City to a crowd of more than 10,000 people going though it on its first day. MoMA and the SyFy Channel arranged to have us go on a private tour of the exhibit that spans four floors of the museum so we could check it out and report back to you some of the goodies that are currently on display.

The items in the exhibit were handpicked by MoMA curators who walked into Burton's London home, were greeted by a sofa full of oompa loompas and were informed outright that they had pretty much free reign...

Candyman
With the coming of the Halloween season, Starpulse contributing writer Kris King is dedicating every day in October to watch a horror movie that has passed him by.

This week we learn the dangers of transvestites in camp with "Sleepaway Camp," get hooked on Viper in "Street Trash," and venture down a road that never ends in "Dead End."

Sleepaway Camp (1983): It Has A Weirdly Surbersive Gay Vibe

"Sleepaway Camp" is a strange movie. In essence, it's nothing more than a cheap, by-the-numbers Friday the 13th knock-off, but while the two movies are identical in setting, time p...

Movie Remakes & Recastings We Hope To Never See

June 8th, 2009 9:40am EDT
Mary Poppins
In the wake of the current brain-draining drive to remake just about everything Hollywood has ever had to offer, there are some films that are so sacred they should never be touched. This is a blatant retort to the deluge of watered down franchises, remakes, medium changes, etc. It ranges in levels of snark from low to apocalyptic strength.

My frustration with this extremely long trend came to a fever pitch after watching the Obsessed trailer. Anyone even peripherally familiar with Fatal Attraction could easily catch the obvious, racially spurred recasting of a classic film.

Movies That Did Not Live Up To Their Potential

March 3rd, 2009 10:39am EST
Star Wars Episode III
Nothing can be more frustrating than something not living up to its potential. Movies are especially guilty of this. There's something about watching a movie that was on to something but didn't quite make it that can stick with you. Watching them unfold feels akin to a runner screaming towards the finish line only to fall and break their ankle thirty feet short. Films like these fall apart for many reasons be it last minute changes by a studio, unnecessary plot twists, or just good old-fashioned incompetence. For whatever reason, these movies are bad-they just didn't have to be. Here's a fe...

Ten Underrated Thrillers

October 17th, 2008 10:12am EDT
The Descent
Horror movies are some of the most consistent pieces of the film industry. Sure there have been highs and lows in the genre, and resurgences have come and gone, but one thing remains true: people will always yearn for those cinematic chills.

The demand, however big it may be, is always constant. The golden age of cinema through the 60s brought on big studio monster movies, sly noir thrillers, and of course, Hitchcockian suspense (a subgenre, respectively). The 1970s, arguably the paramount epoch of cinema, period, saw the expansion of the genre and gave filmgoers some of the best nail...

'Survivor' Fantasy Cast: Who Would You Strand On An Island?

February 4th, 2008 12:00pm EST
Snoop Dogg
I'm an avid fan of "Survivor." I have been since the first episode of the first season. What's not to love? With the amount of scheming, deception and backstabbing, I always found myself thinking of people that I would want to see wasting away on "Survivor." This list usually included people that I intensely disliked because the experience can be tough on some people.

I have assembled my list of celebrities, historical figures and fictional characters that I would love to have on my island. The latest season had 16 people, so that's the number I'm going with.
