17 Horror Movies That Haven't Aged Well

Sometimes, talking about art that "hasn't aged well" is an exercise in punching down. But you'll never see us make fun the perfectly imperfect stop-motion special effects of the original "King Kong," or the arch, gothic grandeur of classic Universal monster movies. When you meet old art halfway, it's magical -- the greatest movies from different eras offer a chance to communicate with the past, an opportunity to engage in pop culture time travel. But this list of horror films the /Film crew has ...

Peacemaker Star John Cena Was Rejected From Many Superhero Roles, Including Deadpool

Sometimes an actor is so perfect for the character they're portraying that we can't possibly imagine anyone else doing them justice. Ryan Reynolds was destined to become Deadpool. Nobody could have embodied the first live-action Shaggy as well as Matthew Lillard. And John Cena is absolutely perfect as Peacemaker. However, in a recent interview with Josh Horowitz on his "Happy Sad Confused" podcast, the "Peacemaker" star revealed that he faced a lot of rejection for superhero roles before finally...

Tales From The Box Office: How Wes Craven's Scream Saved The Slasher Genre

(Welcome to Tales from the Box Office, our column that examines box office miracles, disasters, and everything in between, as well as what we can learn from them.)Horror is truly one of the mainstay staples of Hollywood and, in many ways, its ever-reliable backbone. Slasher flicks, specifically, feel as though they have always done particularly well. It's a genre where an investment of a few million dollars can eventually lead to the "Halloween" franchise taking in over $700 million at the globa...

These Are The 7 Best Kills From Scream

The day we thought might never come has arrived: the fifth "Scream" movie is finally here. The first entry in the franchise in a decade is also the first without the involvement of the franchises' late director, Wes Craven. If you're waiting to see "Scream" number five at home, the movie should follow Paramount's Covid-era protocol for home release, with a streaming premiere 45 days after its theatrical release. If that is the case, this may not be the article for you, as we are about to get dee...

15 January Movie Releases That Were Surprisingly Good

The month of July is for big action blockbusters when aliens are blowing up Washington DC, or superheroes are flying in to save the day. The entire fall is generally dedicated to awards fare and everything that could reasonably be expected to compete at the Oscars. Then you've got January, which is for, well, pretty much all the movies the studios had completely lost faith in but felt obligated to release anyway. Poor old January has long been considered the garbage heap of the cinematic year wh...

No One Knows Which Killer Killed Who In The Original Scream

For an entire generation of horror fans, "Scream" is one of the most important films in our lives. The film responsible for the rebirth of the slasher genre and arguably the best meta horror film of all time, there's a reason "Scream" is an early favorite to win the /Film Greatest Horror Franchise Ever bracket. What separates "Scream" from a lot of the other slasher greats has always been the focus on survivors Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox), and Dewey Riley (Davi...

“Do you like scary movies?” Nearly 25 years ago, “Scream” lit up theaters and revolutionized the horror genre.

1999’s She’s All That Featured a Surprising Amount of Talent

I missed out on She’s All That when it was released way back in 1999 — 22 years ago! — but was very much aware of the film and the impact it had on my close group of high school friends. And while its Cinderella-inspired plot device — a “jock” falls for a “nerdy-because-she-wears-glasses” girl from another click — remains just as cheesy today as it did in the late ’90s, after watching the flick earlier this week, I get the appeal and understand how this rather routine comedy grossed over $100 mi...

‘He’s All That’ Trailer: Imagine an Algorithm Trying to Disguise Itself as a High School Rom-Com

One of the most beloved high school rom-coms to come out of the late 1990s/early 2000s was She’s All That. The story followed a hot shot jock (Freddie Prinze Jr.) as he tried to turn a bespectacled, outspoken, nerdy art girl (Rachel Leigh Cook) into prom queen after his cheerleader girlfriend left him for a reality TV star. Now Netflix is gender-swapping the lead roles and letting viral TikTok star Addison Rae take the lead in He’s All That, as she tries to turn an anti-social outcast boy (Tann...

‘She’s All That’ Reboot ‘He’s All That’ Headed to Netflix

No one needed a She’s All That reboot. In fact, a case could be made that we didn’t even need the first movie. But we got it anyway, and now we’re getting the reboot, too. It’s a gender-swapped version called He’s All That, and it stars a “Tiktok sensation.” Anyhoo, He’s All That is now headed to Netflix, where it will either be embraced by the youths of today or fade into the ether. Long live cinema! Remember the 1999 movie She’s All That? It was a modern-day adaptation of George Bernard Sh...

"Twenty-five years ago, cinema met cyberspace in a riot of funky fashion, cool music and surveillance paranoia.
