Forgotten Friday Flick - 'The Little Shop Of Horrors'
With the new film "The Age of Adaline" at the cinema this week it felt right to go old school and check out some black and white past picture fare with a memorable flair – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick! Don’t let the 1960 elder movie selection this week fool you, as there’s plenty of wit, sass and people eating botanical class to be had. It’s a joyous terror tale of sorts that was the origin of the famed character of a pesky plant with an unhealthy appetite.

Kelly Marcel wrote the screenplay for the first fi...

Simon Pegg Hopes 'Star Trek 3' Will Pay Tribute To The Late Leon
Some of our favorite stars are returning for "Star Trek 3," and many are wondering whether it will include a tribute to the late Leonard Nimoy, who played Spock on the original series as well as several films, including 2009's "Star Trek."

Interview: 'The Harvest" Helmer John McNaughton On Work Past And
Under the category of folks who made first films that freaked fans out, Director John McNaughton will always be top of the list.

He followed it up with a campy underrated genre outing "The Borrower," but then McNaughton delightfully decided to diversify. So from the dramatic and funny "Mad Dog And Glory" to the sexy and sinful "Wild Things," the notorious director b...
