Q&A: Liesl Ahlers on Bringing Out Both Sides of Marina in Friend Request

21 September 2017 2:07 PM, PDT

You'd think it would be difficult to empathize with someone who uses Facebook to destroy people's lives in gruesome ways, but Liesl Ahlers absolutely pulls it off in Friend Request. With the new horror film coming out in Us theaters this Friday from Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures (the same studio behind the recent Us theatrical release of 47 Meters Down), I had the great pleasure of catching up with actress Liesl Ahlers, who plays Marina, the social outcast who blends witchcraft and social media to haunt her college classmate Laura (Alycia Debnam-Carey) and her friends. During the Q&A, Ahlers discusses how she brought out both the humanity and the vengeful side of Marina, learning to walk on stilts for the demonic version of the character, which member of The Breakfast Club she thinks Marina shares similarities with, and much more.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, »

Dolph Lundgren, Bill Sage & Anastasia Baranova Featured in Images from Welcome To Willits

21 September 2017 9:12 AM, PDT

Conspiracy theories and hard drugs blend into one deadly night of carnage in the new horror film Welcome to Willits, and before it's released in theaters and on VOD this Friday from IFC Midnight, we've been provided with a set of stills featuring some familiar faces.

"Aliens, burnouts and clueless campers collide in this bloody and bonkers slasher freak-out. Deep in the woods of Northern California lies the off-the-grid town of Willits, a haven for marijuana growers, meth addicts, and conspiracy theorists. When a gaggle of vacationing teens unknowingly set up their campsite on the property of Willits’ most disturbed resident—a psychotic, drug-addled pot farmer convinced extraterrestrials are out to get him—they’re in for one hell of a bad time. The feature debut from director Trevor Ryan is a no-holds-barred pileup of carnage, twisted comedy, and pure crazy."

Bernie Casey Has Passed Away

21 September 2017 8:24 AM, PDT

From the football field to the film lots, Bernie Casey left an indelible impression with a presence that couldn't be ignored, and we're sad to share the news that the actor has passed away at the age of 78.

According to multiple outlets, including THR, Casey passed away after a "brief illness" at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Before he entered the world of movies, Casey was a star in his own right as a track and field standout at Bowling Green State University. After making it to the finals of the 1960 United States Olympic Trials, Casey was a first round draft pick for the San Francisco 49ers and would go on to play eight years in the NFL as a wide receiver, raking in 40 touchdowns and over 5,000 receiving yards.

With his life as a professional athlete behind him in the late 1960s, Casey turned his attention to acting, »

Cavitycolors Summons the Sanderson Sisters with New Hocus Pocus “Buy or Die” Apparel

20 September 2017 4:52 PM, PDT

Every fall, as the days get shorter and the trees begin to shed their leaves, I eagerly await the return of the Sanderson Sisters on the TV screen. To me, Hocus Pocus is synonymous with the Halloween season, and while I could pop in the Blu-ray any time of the year, there's something magical about watching the movie as it airs, knowing that other people out there are doing the same while sipping apple cider and carving jack-o'-lanterns. That's why I'm ready to dance until I die after seeing that Cavitycolors' next "Buy or Die" release features an eye-popping Hocus Pocus design.

Cavitycolors' gorgeous new Hocus Pocus artwork features the film's lovable cast of characters, including all three Sanderson sisters, Max and his little sister, Dani, the resourceful Allison, the beheaded zombie Billy, and the adorable talking cat Thackery Binx.

The new Hocus Pocus design will be available on T-shirts, »
