‘Goonies’ TV Series Will Follow Kids Creating a Shot-For-Shot Remake of the ’80s Adventure Film

Here’s an idea that is sure to appeal to people in their late-30s/early-4os: A Goonies TV series! But wait, there’s a catch. This isn’t going to be a TV adaptation of the Richard Donner movie where a group of children screams for two full hours while dealing with skeletons. Oh, no. Instead, this show is about a teacher who helps her students create a shot-for-shot remake of The Goonies. And of course, lessons will be learned and friendships will be formed, and so on. Look, I know lots of peo...

Counting Down the 10 Scariest and Most Evil Children in Horror Movies

You don’t have to be a childless millennial at Disney World to be afraid of kids. There’s a whole time-honored sub-genre of horror that plays upon pedophobia, the fear of children. It’s yielded ghost girls aplenty and more than one son of Satan. Writer-directors Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala ventured into pedophobic territory with their 2014 Austrian film, Goodnight Mommy. It’s been a long road to the release of their new feature, The Lodge, which premiered at Sundance last year and earned s...

‘Lethal Weapon 5’ Might Be Happening After All, Even Though We’re Too Old For This Sh*t

The strange saga of Lethal Weapon 5 continues. Back in 2017, a report stated that the sequel was happening, and that stars Danny Glover and Mel Gibson would reunite with franchise director Richard Donner. But by 2018, Donner offered an update saying the project was probably dead due to behind-the-scenes problems. Now, however, producer Dan Lin is saying the movie will happen, and everyone is still involved. Maybe. If you were disappointed that Lethal Weapon 5 might no longer happen, here’s p...

Joe Pantoliano on Working With Tom Cruise, Being Directed by Steven Spielberg, and More [Interview]

Joe Pantoliano, affectionately known as “Joey Pants” to many, wears his roles like few others from his generation. His breakout role was in 1983’s Risky Business , with the indelible role of “Guido the Pimp”, and from there he consistently made films and shows better with his very appearance. He often plays wise-cracking, quick-to anger characters bemused by the idiocy around him, and it’s this acerbic yet intelligent takes that leap off the screen. Midnight Run saw him spend much of the mo...

Brightburn, the horror movie twist on the Superman origin story, has a new extended trailer, and it’s definitely worth watching. This dark and twisted take on superhero mythology hails from producer James Gunn, and looks like a remake of Richard Donner’s Superman and Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, done as a scary movie.
