Gil Kenan's Poltergeist remake haunted by a PG-13 rating

This is one we can't get too up in arms about: The POLTERGEIST remake, which has been spookily reticent to show itself to us, has been given a PG-13 rating by the overlords at the MPAA. The first film was rated PG and scared us all out of our wits when we were kids, so this is no big deal. The new take on the Tobe Hooper-directed, Steven Spielberg-produced classic earned its...

Final poster for Annabelle, starring Ward Horton; in theaters today

So, do you have any big plans for the weekend? How about making a date with ANNABELLE ? The spinoff of last years hit THE CONJURING finally haunts theaters today, and now New Line Cinema has dropped the final poster for the flick on us. Peep it below. I'm actually quite curious to see how ANNABELLE is received. Our head honcho The Arrow wasn't a fan (peep his review HERE...

Second TV spot for The Conjuring spinoff Annabelle attaches itself to you

Last week we shared the first TV spot for the upcoming THE CONJURING spinoff ANNABELLE with you, and today we have another TV spot to throw your way. This one hammers home that demons can sometimes attach themselves to objects (in this case it's the creepy titular doll), and this latest TV spot offers a few new looks at the October 3 release while it attaches its nightmarish...

New TV spot for The Conjuring spinoff Annabelle, starring Annabelle Wallis

Every evil has an origin, and next month we'll learn the terrifying origins of ANNABELLE, the creepy doll that inspired nightmares with her appearance in THE CONJURING. Now we have a new TV spot for the October 3 release, and while things may have 'started out small' they certainly gain frightening momentum here. We just learned that the MPAA slapped ANNABELLE with an...

Annabelle will be intense and disturbing, according to MPAA

In case you were concerned this October's ANNABELLE would be a watered-down, PG-13 wimpfest, the MPAA has some positive news for you. Just like THE CONJURING before it, ANNABELLE has been slapped with an R rating. "Intense sequences of disturbing violence and terror," is the reason given by the ratings board. To compare, THE CONJURING similarly received the R for "sequences...

Eva Green responds to Sin City: A Dame to Kill For poster controversy

Last week we brought you the news that the MPAA had banned a sexy Eva Green poster for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's upcoming SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR because it dared to hint at Green's boob and nipple. It's yet another testament to how ridiculous and prudish the organization is, and actually only served to direct more attention to the poster than it would have...

Eva Green's boob rejected by MPAA in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For poster

Display a gun, sword or any other killing instrument? That's fine. Suggest a boob? No way! The MPAA has struck again, rejecting the below poster for FRANK MILLER'S SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR for the silliest of reasons. According to PageSix, the one-sheet of femme fatale Eva Green didn't make the cut because of "nudity curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle...

Eli Roth's The Green Inferno to spawn a sequel; Aftershock's Nicholas Lopez to helm

Earlier this morning we dropped our review of Eli Roth's THE GREEN INFERNO on you (check it out HERE ), fresh off of the films worldwide premiere screening this past weekend at the Toronto International Film Festival, and now we have the word that Roth is already plotting a sequel to the gorefest, only he won't be in the directors seat for this go-around. The Hollywood...

Eli Roth's The Green Inferno could be his most disturbing movie yet

The MPAA has just officially slapped an unsurprising R rating to Eli Roth's THE GREEN INFERNO for its "aberrant violence and torture, grisly disturbing images, brief graphic nudity, sexual content, language and some drug use” — in other words, this is going to be one nasty piece of cinema from Mr. Roth. Seriously, THE GREEN INFERNO has "date night"...

MPAA dishes out ratings to Pacific Rim, R.I.P.D. and 7500

It's that time again; the MPAA has given their ratings to a few movies of interest to us, so we're going to pass the info along. First up, Guillermo del Toro's epic PACIFIC RIM , which has been predictably slapped with a PG-13, for sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence throughout, and brief language. PACIFIC RIM hits theaters on July 12th. R.I.P.D. , which just...

Evil Dead has scored an NC-17... for now

Here's something that may not exactly qualify as breaking news, but it will still please those of you (all of us) looking forward to THE EVIL DEAD : Director Fede Alvarez confirmed via Twitter that the remake nabbed an NC-17 rating. Groovy! Naturally, studio TriStar Pictures will not be releasing the film that way, but it's nonetheless heartening to learn the film has enough unholy...
