'The Ring' Arrives On Blu-ray March 20

March 19th, 2012 6:06am EDT
The Ring
A disturbing videotape appears to hold the power of life and death over those who view it in the offbeat thriller "The Ring."

A strange videotape begins making the rounds in a town in the Pacific Northwest; it is full of bizarre and haunting images, and after watching it, many viewers receive a telephone call in which they are warned they will die in seven days. A handful of teenagers who watched the tape while spending a weekend at a cabin in the mountains scoff at the threat, but as predicted, they all die suddenly on the same night.

Rachel Keller (Naomi Watts), the aunt of one of the ...

When you think of horror movies, you think of suspense, blood and gore, and serial killers. There have been many great horror movies with some scary serial killers. Some of them include the mysterious tape in The Ring, death in Final Destination, and Lindsay Lohan in Herbie Fully Loaded.

Who Green Lights These Movies In Hollywood?

No one ever seems to listen. When reading through the announcements that come out of Hollywood, one gets the feeling that the industry should know better by now. A Max Payne movie? Aliens vs. Predator 2? A Drop Dead Fred remake? Who green lights this stuff? The film industry is rife with bad ideas, often resulting in empty-pocketed executives standing around wondering why Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li didn't make any money. People keep losing money, yet the bad ideas keep pouring in. Here are a few upcoming bad ideas:

Underrated & Overrated Horror Films

Saw
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 ...

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...

Ten Underrated Thrillers

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...

Spotlight On Australian Entertainers

Russell Crowe
What is it about Aussies that Americans find so fascinating? Is it the cute accents? The laid-back attitudes? The "party animal" reputations? It could be a mix of all of these traits. It could also be because, although we speak the same language and our cultures have many similarities, many of us know very little about Australia. That strange yet familiar vibe makes those down under denizens appear exciting and mysterious - an irresistible combo!

Since Americans are also fascinated with celebrities, it's no surprise that so many awesome Aussie entertainers have found fame in the U.S. ...

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.

Point/Counterpoint: Should Hollywood Stop Remaking Classic Films?

January 18th, 2008 1:45pm EST
Rob Zombie
Over the years many classic movies have been remade. Don't get me wrong, some of those remakes have been really good. But the majority of the movies have been really bad.

These days, special effects are being taken to a whole new level, but that's not always a good thing. One of the main reasons these films are classics is because CGI was in the distant future. People loved the original "Godzilla" because you can see the man in the Godzilla costume crushing a cardboard box, also known as Tokyo.

There are few movies that have scared me, and one of those films was the 1978 movie "Ha...

Survey Reveals Most Haunting Movie Moments

September 28th, 2006 10:51am EDT
The Ring
Participants in a Halloween survey by Blockbuster said that the scene in the film The Ring in which the dead Samara crawls out of the television haunts them more than any other, although scenes from Hannibal, The Exorcist and The Blair Witch Project come close behind.

Close to 60 percent of those surveyed reported being unable to get a scary image out of their mind after watching a horror film. It's easy to see why, with a feast of frightening films to see that include Hannibal Lecter dining on Ray Liotta's brains while he's still alive in Hannibal.
