Wes Craven

RIP: Director Wes Craven

Movie News | August 31, 2015

Hollywood lost another because of stupid cancer. Horror legend Wes Craven passed away yesterday at the age of 76 after succumbing to brain cancer. Wes Craven created the Nightmare of Elm Street series and the character that gave me nightmares every night as a kid (and still do), Freddy Krueger. Besides A Nightmare On Elm Street, he also created/directed the Scream series, The Hills Have Eyes, Swamp Thing, The Serpent and the Rainbow, The Last House on the Left, The People Under the Stairs and loads of other movies.

Rock The Kasbah trailer

Video: Rock the Kasbah trailer

Media | August 28, 2015

Bill Murray! I don’t even need to continue because you’ll go see the movie now. But I will. Rock the Kasbah is the latest film starring Bill Murray and a bunch of other people (Bruce Willis, Kate Hudson, Zooey Deschanel, and Danny McBride to name a few). The movie is about a has-been rock manager who goes over to Afghanistan and stumbles upon a new talent. The movie is directed by Barry Levinson and will be out October 23rd. I’m sold but they could have used The Clash or the very least, Rachid Taha’s cover of it.
