Deadly Pleasures: Texas Chainsaw 3D

  • DailyDead
Do your thing, cuz!”

Not since Busta Rhymes challenged Michael Myers to a kung fu fight has one moment in a horror movie so signified that a beloved franchise had completely lost its mind. But unlike Halloween: Resurrection, which represents the desperate, pandering death rattle of the Halloween franchise, those four words spoken near the end of 2013’s Texas Chainsaw find the series embracing a lunacy it had left behind for 20 years and attempting to inject new blood into Tobe Hooper’s dynasty. Literally. [Spoilers for Texas Chainsaw follow.]

Though it made a boatload of money upon its January 2013 release (about two and a half times its $20 million budget), Texas Chainsaw—originally called Texas Chainsaw 3D, as it was the first in the series released in the 3D format—is the kind of widely reviled sequel that most horror fans mention in conversations about the worst modern franchise films, standing alongside Jason Goes to Hell

Goliath Season 1 Review

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast

Creators David E. Kelley and Jonathan Shapiro’s latest excursion into the inner workings of a law firm and a discarded group of practicing underdogs builds to nothing more then a rehashed and conventional legal drama. From its antagonistic firm, an indomitable, monopolizing juggernaut, right down to our crass yet loveable antihero, a disgraced, alcoholic practitioner, Goliath cannot overcome familiarity to do its impressive and invested ensemble justice.

Former courtroom hotshot Billy McBride (Billy Bob Thornton) spends his days scrounging the bottom of a bottle, seeking the strength to settle his court-appointed cases and forget his many woes. Divorced, a bordering insomniac on account of his sleep apnea, and deadbeat dad, McBride swishes the sympathy trifecta. Going about his unfulfilling day, feeding a stray hound along the way to his local bar then stumbling his way in and out of court. The self-loathing

David E. Kelley and Billy Bob Thornton mount impressive comebacks in 'Goliath'

David E. Kelley and Billy Bob Thornton mount impressive comebacks in 'Goliath'
In his day, Billy McBride was the best damn lawyer his colleagues had ever seen, a courtroom virtuoso and founding partner of one of the biggest law firms in the world. Now, though, he's an alcoholic who lives in a motel, works out of the bar next door, and is either a joke to those who only know him like this or a sad cautionary tale to those who remember his glory days. David E. Kelley, the writer who co-created Goliath, the new Amazon drama in which Billy (played by Billy Bob Thornton) is the central character, was once every bit the colossus of the TV legal drama. As creator and/or executive producer of shows like L.A. Law, Picket Fences, The Practice, Ally McBeal, and Boston Legal, Kelley won 10 Emmys himself — including the unprecedented, unlikely to be duplicated feat of winning the comedy and drama series Emmys in the

Why You Should Be Watching: Switched at Birth

Switched at Birth cast: (back, l to r) Lucas Grabeel, Dw Moffett, Lea Thompson, Constance Marie, Ivone Coll. (front l to r) Vanessa Marano, Katie Leclerc

One could easily lump Switched at Birth in among the ranks of the typical melodramatic soapy family dramas, wrought with teen angst, but to do so would be a mistake: Switched at Birth has much more inimitable qualities, placing it above the average-teen centered drama. It’s not only entertaining, but also compelling and thoughtful television. At the core of the series is the unique relationship between the two very different female leads who are both equally the protagonist of the series. Theirs is a relationship unlike any other on TV, as they have essentially been living each other’s life.

The series’ premise is that a girl, named Bay, discovers that when she was born, she was mistakenly given to an upper class family with the surname Kennish,

‘Manson Girls’ To Go Helter Skelter

  • Deadline
‘Manson Girls’ To Go Helter Skelter
Exclusive: As Charles Manson gears up for his behind-bars nuptials to a young follower named Star, a February shoot has been set for long-gestating indie drama Manson Girls. Susanna Lo is directing the film about the female devotees who joined Manson’s flock in the 1960s and helped carry out brutal killings meant to start an apocalyptic race war. Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects) will portray Manson in the film, which TriCoast Worldwide boarded this month at Afm.

Rather than probe the twisted brain of Manson himself, Manson Girls will chronicle how eight young women in his brood came from diverse and even privileged backgrounds to become the most notorious female serial killers of the decade’s Love Generation. The pic will follow the girls’ pre-Manson teen years through their indoctrination into the Family and up to the bloody summer of 1969 when their violent “Helter Skelter” campaign that

'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' Prequel to Follow Leatherface's Teen Years?

'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' Prequel to Follow Leatherface's Teen Years?
The long-running Leatherface horror franchise got an update last year with Millennium Films' Texas Chainsaw 3D, which starred Alexandra Daddario as the daughter of Loretta Sawyer, and the cousin of Leatherface (Dan Yeager) himself. Back in January 2013, we reported that a sequel isn't in development, though Bloody-Disgusting claims that a prequel is moving forward instead, which may explore Leatherface's teenage years.

The production company is currently in talks with an unidentified screenwriter for this project, which will actually be a sequel to Tobe Hooper's 1974 original classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and a prequel to last year's Texas Chainsaw 3D, which means that Dan Yeager and the rest of the Texas Chainsaw 3D cast will not be featured. That would also mean that Leatherface is also a teenager in the original? Which doesn't make sense, since he is clerly a forty-year-old man. Maybe this new prequel will provide flashbacks?

'The Big Bang Theory': Sheldon and Amy share a monumental Valentine's Day in 'The Locomotive Manipulation'

Consider it a Valentine's Day miracle: Sheldon Cooper is embracing romance.

During Thursday's (Feb. 6) episode of "The Big Bang Theory," the series' early celebration of all things Valentine's, the gawky doc and his beleaguered girlfriend Amy (Mayim Bialik) took a remarkable step forward when he finally, finally kissed her.

Sure, it was at the tail end of a date aboard a restored classic train that Sheldon (Jim Parsons) epically ruined by ignoring Amy and bonding with a brain-damaged man obsessed with trains. And it came in the same episode where he referred to his long-suffering love as Princess Corncob, Fester and Gollum.

But it was a kiss! A real kiss. A long kiss. One that Sheldon initiated, however spitefully in the beginning, and seemed to genuinely enjoy. This is uncharted territory for a show that, seven season in, has been all about pushing its characters to the outer limits of their comfort zones.

The Big Bang Theory: Will Tania Raymonde Be Raj’s Valentine?

  • Boomtron
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m growing a little tired of The Big Bang Theory’s insistence on repetition. At what point does this series grow tired of using Raj as someone who has the worst luck with women? His inability to speak to women while sober was a trait that was cute for maybe two seasons, but it dragged on for way too long and made little sense even as a joke. It was like a crutch to keep him away from finding a proper relationship. So Big Bang is looking to throw him toward another girl that will likely prove to be nothing much in terms of romance, but will certainly go miles towards making Raj unhappy.

The latest woman to come into Raj’s life will be played by Lost alum Tania Raymonde, according to TVLine. She’ll be guest starring,
