'Supernatural' 7.18 Recap: Raise Your Glass

March 31st, 2012 8:31am EDT
padalecki, ackles
Leave it to “Supernatural” to wallop fans with Sam bravely facing his own demise only for poor dead Castiel to fly in for a last minute save and then to return with a lighthearted, filler episode that played as both a love letter to binge-drinking and a PSA for drinking and driving, and then stomp on our hearts with a one-two punch of--SPOILER ALERT-- Bobby Singer’s singers return. That’s enough to drive this liquor-averse blogger to drink in celebration and because of all the feelings. Where’s a raspberry mojito when you need one or 14? I love this show so much.

7 Not-So-Scary Movies

The Blair Witch Project
Halloween is slowly approaching and you know what that means; a time for endless costume parties and for the sentimental ones, a time to cuddle up in front of the TV screen to get a healthy dose of scary movie marathons. Though there are oodles of horror films begging for the dust to be blown off of them, there are the others that are not worth pressing the play button on - simply because they tend to lack the scary in scary movies. Here are 7 films whose fright level is hardly lukewarm.

'Battlestar Galactica' Recap: 'Someone To Watch Over Me'

March 3rd, 2009 12:17pm EST
Battlestar Galactica
Okay, Boomer, now I'm just pissed. This episode of Battlestar Galactica, "Someone to Watch Over Me," proved to us once and for all the true nature of Boomer, which had previously been pretty murky due to her mistreatment at the hands of both humans and cylons, her traumatic murder and rebirth as a cylon, and her flip-flopping allegiances between New Caprica and the Cylon Civil War. All of those overwhelming experiences, coupled with the fact that the girl just can't seem to catch a break from either side, would frak with the head of anyone, biological or machine. Thus, I rooted for her, and...

Underrated & Overrated Horror Films

Today is Halloween. No introduction necessary. Check out our list of five of the most overrated and underrated horror movies of all time:

UNDERRATED

5. "Scream" (1996)

Ah, the classic case of so overrated it became underrated. Actually, it's more that this movie was so good and influential that its hallmarks have become so deeply ingrained in moviedom that we can't imagine a time that existed before it. It didn't invent the slasher genre, it just brought it to a new level, adding humor and bringing a spot of intelligence to its leads. It was also a perfect parody of ...

A scream queen can be the damsel in distress and the protagonist. Whatever role she plays, she's as prominent as the villain. A Scream Queen...

...Is usually the good girl (in front of the camera)

The biggest scream queens are the ones usually cast in the good girl role. In slasher films that focus on teens, the good girl is the one turning down drinks and sexual advances because she often represents purity in a corrupt world. Many Scream Queens later try to drop the good girl image they were locked into. In recent films, Scream queens are not all good girls, but they're still lik...

Horror-ible Remakes: Why Horror Film Do Overs Often Fail

October 28th, 2008 10:27am EDT
Prom Night
Hollywood seemingly goes through the horror section of a video store to find films they can exploit for a quick profit. This year there was Prom Night, The Eye, Shutter, and One Missed Call, to name a few. Studios continue to produce remakes while attempting to best the originals, but they are not always concerned about quality. What makes these remakes so terrible? (Warning: possible spoilers ahead).

Failure to Change What Was Bad to Begin With

Not all remakes are bad, but there are select films that never were that original to begin with. The original Prom Night (1980) starring...

Guyliner 2.0

Tokio Hotel
Okay, so Starpulse ran an article on February 21 titled "Guyliner: Hot Or Not? You Decide," but we left a number of big names off of that list-- enough, in fact, to make a second list of more men who publicly wear the dark penciling around their eyes.

Some find it sexy and attractive, while others find it downright disgraceful; but in either case there are plenty of guys doing it lately. While our first article may have taken a positive slant on the issue at hand, this writer is only creeped out by these men who are obviously more concerned with their image than anything else.

The Wicker Man
Fall officially begins Sept. 22, but The Wicker Man (Sept. 1) deserves a spot on the list of upcoming creepy movies.

The sheriff’s investigation is repeatedly stalled by the highly secretive, neo-pagan community that inhabits the island, and he soon discovers that there are still some cultures that refuse to play by the rules of modern society.
