It’s been a while since CineFix made a list that riled up its fanbase. But here we go. The movie enthusiasts picked their five best film follow ups “of all time”, including direct sequels, reboots and spinoffs. Let’s just think of it as a conversation starter rather than a definitive list.
Etsy store NancysJars makes LED night lights out of old VHS tapes. You can customize the LEDs and the picture. The latter doesn’t have to be from a movie, but if it is the shop will do its best to use a tape of that movie to make the night light. It’s powered by AAA batteries.
Now You See It argues that awful movies entertain us beyond their obliviousness. He points out that the elements found in the Sharknados and The Rooms of the world – unrealistic acting, cheesy dialogue, outdated effects – are also used in good films.
It’s been over 13 years, but Bob Parr and his super-powered family are coming back to the big screen. From the looks of the teaser, it’s Baby Jack-Jack’s time to shine. And unless one of his powers is slowing time, it takes place shortly after the original. Premieres 6/15/18.
Eleven-year-old Parvana and her family live in war-torn Kabul, Afghanistan. When her father is wrongfully arrested, Parvana decides to dress up as a boy to help provide for her family and find her dad, empowered by the stories that he told her. Premieres 11/7/17.
(PG-13, Gore) Streaming video is killing movie posters and covers. But Entertain the Elk argues that that shouldn’t be the case. He uses arresting VHS covers of horror movies to point out the ways that art and captions can convince viewers to give a film a shot.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Alien. The Silence of the Lambs. The Shining. Psycho. CineFix believes that those five are unassailable horror films. But they picked an alternative for each of those classics, so you’ll have something different to watch this Halloween.
(Gore) Did you know that Scream‘s original title was Scary Movie? And that the Ghostface mask was just some generic off-the-shelf mask that the movie made famous? How about the fact that Ghostface’s phone voice is also Mojo Jojo? All that and more in CineFix’s video.
Five teenage mutants – Magik, Wolfsbane, Cannonball, Sunspot and Mirage – try to escape from a secret facility. Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams and Stranger Things’ Charlie Heaton star in this horror take on Marvel’s New Mutants. Premieres 4/13/18. More on IGN.
(PG-13: Language, Gore) CineFix summon the Halloween spirit by listing some of the most popular horror movie tropes as well as some stellar examples. There’s the classic location, the person whom you just know is going to make it until the end, and… behind you!
