Filmmaking debuts don’t get much more fascinating, or promising, than the horror-tinged sci-fi tale Coherence, the first feature from writer-director James Ward Byrkit, which begins its theatrical run this Friday.

David Koechner is best known for playing the Ron Burgundy-obsessed Champ Kind in the Anchorman movies. But the comic actor is becoming something of a horror genre regular, thanks to his appearances in Piranha 3DD, the not-exactly-a-horror-movie-but-still-plenty-horrific Cheap Thrills, the forthcoming Scouts vs. Zombies, and Crawlspace, which is now available to watch exclusively on Hulu Plus.
What do Cecil B. De Mille, Alfred Hitchcock, Michael Mann, and Michael Haneke have in common? They all remade movies they had themselves previously directed. Filmmakers Lucky McKee (May, The Woman) and Chris Sivertson (I Know Who Killed Me) can now claim membership of this small but illustrious group thanks to their new collaboration All Cheerleaders Die, a remake of the pair’s 2001 horror movie.
Released to cinemas tomorrow (and also available on VOD) the revamped All Cheerleaders Die stars Caitlin Stasey, Brooke Butler, Amanda Grace Cooper, and Reanin Johannink as a quartet of cheerleaders who die in a car crash but are brought back to life by a high school acquaintance (Sianoa Smit-McPhee) and face off against the jocks responsible for their death.

The A Nightmare on Elm Street star appears in a new, PSA-lampooning ad for the original movie output of horror network Chiller.

Instead, he lives a life of amateur gardening and eating old human teeth.”
Englund concludes by explaining how you can make everything better — or worse, depending on your point of view — by watching Chiller. You can check out the full video below.
In 2001, writer-directors Lucky McKee and Chris Sivertson killed off a group of cheerleaders in All Cheerleaders Die. Now, they’ve done it again in a remake of their own film, which hits theaters Friday and is also available on VOD. So why do the pair hate cheerleaders so much? READ FULL STORY
