Francesca Eastwood Makes Your Day w/ Nude Debut in M.F.A.


Francesca Eastwood, daughter of movie icon Clint Eastwood, is out for some Dirty Harry type justice in M.F.A., a revenge drama starring Eastwood as a college rape victim turned vigilante when she inadvertently kills her assailant during a confrontation and uncovers the rampant rape culture on her campus.

Dark Sky Films releases M.F.A. on Oct. 13. Early reviews reveal the film is a bit on the chatty side, but Eastwood does flash some boob (thanks, Mr. Skin) so you can still get some enjoyment from the flick while appearing sensitive at the theater – just keep your pants zipped!

Eastwood’s genre creds include playing mutant Molly Walker on NBC event series “Heroes Reborn” and co-starring in photographer and then boyfriend Tyler Shield’s revenge thriller Final Girl. She is best know for burning a $100K Birkin bag in a photo shoot for Shields.


Feast Your Eyes On Gabrielle Haugh In ‘Jeepers Creepers 3′


Screen Media Films has released a full-length trailer for Jeepers Creepers 3, the long gestating sequel in the popular horror franchise from writer/director and convicted child molester Victor Salva. Set during The Creeper’s final day of feeding, the film finds police task forces attempting to figure out the monster’s origins to kill it.

Original final girl Gina Philips reprises her role as Trish and Jonathan Breck returns as The Creeper. But, it’s model and actress Gabrielle Haugh who will make you turn a blind eye to Salva’s despicable behavior and watch Jeepers Creepers 3, assuming you can find a theater playing it.

Jeepers Creepers 3 was meant to be Haugh’s first major release up until that pesky child molesting thing impeded the film’s theatrical run, forcing Regal theaters to screen the film for one night only on Sept. 26. Rumor has it Haugh lost her recent gig on NBC’s “Days of Our Lives” over an Instagram post announcing her involvement in the sequel.

Haugh made her acting debut in Lifetime’s lesbian vampire dramedy “Mother, May I Sleep with Danger.” She has since starred in the indie frighteners The Midnight Man and The Institute and co-starred on Netflix’s teen suicide soap “13 Reasons Why.”

Megan Fox Robbed Again! ‘Crown’s’ Claire Foy Is New Lisbeth Salander!


Earlier this year, Sony Pictures announced it was looking to replace Rooney Mara in the role of emotionally disturbed hacker Lisbeth Salander in The Girl in the Spider’s Web, a new volume in late Swedish author Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series – made popular by its first novel, “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”

Naturally, we assumed Megan Fox was a shoo-in. How else to keep the franchise alive after the initial’s release was met with a tepid response at the box office without the casting of a hot chick? The announcement reportedly drew interest for the role from stunners Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, and Alicia Vikander – all excellent choices.

Megan Fox Woulda Killed As Lizbeth Salander!

Megan Fox Woulda Killed As Lizbeth Salander!

Sadly, the studio found an actress with less sex appeal than Mara: Claire Foy (”The Crown’s”). Has this Foy person even done a nude scene or semi-nude photo shoot? Was Fox really not available? I mean, c’mon, first screwed out of Wonder Woman role and now this!

Fede Alvarez, director of exceptional fright flicks Don’t Breathe and 2013’s Evil Dead remake, is at the helm of the sequel.

Alvarez lied said:

I couldn’t be more thrilled about Claire taking the reins of the iconic Lisbeth Salander. Claire is an incredible, rare talent who will inject a new and exciting life into Lisbeth.  I can’t wait to bring this new story to a worldwide audience, with Claire Foy at its center.

“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” is the first book in what is collectively known as the Millennium Trilogy, novels by late Swedish author Stieg Larsson. They have sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. Larrson, a journalist and political activist, died of a heart attack at the age 50 in 2004. According to his longtime live-in girlfriend Eva Gabrielsson, he left behind pages to his unfinished fourth book in the series.

“The Girl in the Spider’s Web” is not based on those pages, but instead written by David Lagercrantz with the Larsson’s estate’s support. Gabrielsson calls Lagercrantz an “idiotic choice” for carrying on the book series.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web is slated for release Oct. 5, 2018.


Marilyn Manson Is Nun to Subtle In ‘We Know Where You Fucking Live”


Marilyn Manson has released a video for “We Know Where You Fucking Live,” the first single from his upcoming 10th album Heaven Upside Down,” available Oct. 6. The video follows Manson and a group of gun-wielding nuns as they torment and abuse a suburban family during a home invasion.

As a diehard Manson fan, the shenanigans seem just a little too obvious and uninspired at this point. But, as a Catholic school survivor, hot and fetishized nuns looking to rub their holiest of holies on dudes’ faces is absolutely brilliant and stroke-worthy.

Jamie Lee Curtis Is Next Year’s ‘Halloween’ Treat!


Jamie Lee Curtis is set to reprise her iconic role as Laurie Strode in a new and reportedly final Halloween sequel from horror hit machine Blumhouse and Universal Pictures. David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express) directs and co-writes with longtime collaborator and actor Danny McBride (”Eastbound & Down”).

Curtis tweeted (along with the pic above):

Same porch. Same clothes. Same issues. 40 years later. Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween.

With Blumhouse in the driver’s seat and Halloween creator John Carpenter on board as executive producer, the new Curtis-starring film could be the best out of all the sequels and reboots in the franchise since Halloween IV! At the very least, we’ll get some quality dick jokes from Green and McBride.

The new Halloween is slated to release Oct. 19, 2018.


Bella Thorne’s Lesbian Kiss Is Coming to Netflix in ‘The Babysitter’


Netflix has set an Oct. 13 premiere date for The Babysitter, a horror-comedy from producer and director McG (Terminator: Salvation) for New Line Cinema, starring Bella Thorne and Aussie model-turned-actress Samara Weaving (Hugo Weaving’s daughter).

The Babysitter follows a 12-year-old boy (Judah Lewis) and his ridiculously hot nanny (Weaving) on a night when dreadful things occur. If that’s not enough to pique your interest, Thorne and Weaving share a sultry lesbian scene in the film as well.

Thorne told ET Canada:

It’s super controversial, it will be a lot to deal with. There’s this really slow-mo girl on girl scene, with me and the main character.
Thorne most recently starred in MTV’s adaptation of Wes Craven’s Scream and will soon be seen in Screen Gems’ home invasion thriller Keep Watching and Dimension Films Amityville: The Awakening, a reboot of the chilling 1979 classic horror film about a family tormented by the demonic forces occupying their home.


‘The Shape of Water’ Merman Is Totally Gonna Hook Up!


Fox Searchlight has released a trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s critically acclaimed creature-feature, The Shape of Water. Sally Hawkins (Godzilla) plays a lonely deaf woman working as a janitor in a government lab who falls for a merman being used in top secret experiments during the Cold War, circa 1962 America.

Judging by the trailer, there won’t be many endearingly awkward lobster dinners between the pair being that researchers have their own plans for the creature. The Shape of Water is written by del Toro and Vanessa Taylor (Divergent). It arrives in theaters Dec. 8

‘Better Watch Out’ … Christmas Comes Early!


Well Go USA has released a trailer for Better Watch Out, a home invasion thriller from Chris Peckover, writer/director of 2010’s timely and frightening immigration thriller Undocumented. Aussie stunner Olivia DeJonge stars as a babysitter tormented during the Christmas holiday by trespassers unlike any others.

Better Watch Out co-stars Levi Miller (Pan) as DeJonge’s charge, Virginia Madsen (The Haunting in Connecticut) and Patrick Warburton (”Seinfeld”) as his parents, and Ed Oxenbould, DeJonge’s co-star in M. Night Shyamalan’s comeback sleeper, The Visit.

Better Watch Out arrives in theaters and VOD Oct. 6.

QM’s Dark Harbor 2017 Serves Up New Ship Maze ‘Feast,’ Get Tix Now!


Halloween season is upon us and if you’re getting that sinking feeling that you’re gonna miss out on something big then obviously you haven’t purchased your tickets to this year’s Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor event, featuring the launch of an all-new fourth ship maze! Fortunately, you haven’t missed the boat.

Running select nights from Sept. 28 through Nov. 1 at the historic Queen Mary in Long Beach, Dark Harbor 2017 unleashes seven maddening mazes, hundreds of ghouls, monsters, and sea-faring creeps, immersive attractions, live undead entertainment, tasty slop, and intoxicating spirits (yes, we mean booze!).

Feast is this year’s new maze and it marks the fourth on board the Queen Mary vessel. This is mind-blowing news as the ship’s mazes are unparalleled in eeriness with the uncanny ability to scare and disturb without the aid of hellish creatures – though they appear as well, those sick paranormal pranksters!

Feast tells the tale of Chef, a culinary genius at serving up WWII soldiers as flavorful delicacies, burnt alive in his own oven upon discovery from the ship’s crew. Not one to let a bad review torpedo his career, the Chef returns from the dead with new fish to fry. Feast joins Lullaby, Soulmate, and B340 as the ship mazes, taking guests deep into the engine rooms, corridors, and galleys.

The docks will see more intensified versions of returning mazes Intrepid, Circus Big Top Terror, and Deadrise – an intricate maze so well crafted and long (and wet) it’s easy to get sucked into its story and believe it is a sunken World War II escort ship haunted by drowned mariners and their fearsome Captain.

Tickets – including online deals – are available now and can be purchased at the Dark Harbor website. Check out our reviews for Dark Harbor: 2016, 2014, and 2013.
