Original Vs. Remake: Carrie

We had a near unanimous agreement with the result of our last Fright Night Original Vs. Remake . The 1985 classic definitely set the bar damn high, but the remake was thankfully, not a piece of shit. That was the general consensus. For today's O vs. R, we are sticking with the whole "school starts in September" motif and covering a horror flick that truly tells the terrors of attending...

Dissecting Scarlett Johansson!

ACTRESS SCARLETT JOHANSSON! Seriously, is there a sexier person in pictures these days than Scarlett Johansson? I truly doubt it.

Top 10 Horror Psychics!

So, what do you guys and gals think of the CARRIE remake, opening today? Word is the cast and crew went back and reshot a bunch of shite in order to make the flick worthy of a hard-R rating. You think they pulled it off? Like most remakes, I personally find this a completely unneeded one, but damn if I'd ever pass on seeing such a juicy role played by Julianne Moore. And Chloe Moretz? Say...
