Today marks the 20th anniversary of the release of SCREAM 2, the sequel to the movie that kickstarted the 90s horror movie wave, and one of the rare sequels in the horror genre that was actually pretty darn entertaining. So to commemorate the occasion I decided to rank the death scenes in this movie from worst to best.
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER the TV series premiered 18 years ago this month on the now defunct WB Network. It is hard to believe that it has been almost 20 years since this show debuted and ever harder to believe that its been 12 years since the show ended. Well with the shows anniversary in mind I decided to put together a few of my unpopular opinions about this show that I loved to pieces.
With the announcement that there will be an all female Expendables-type film made many a movie fan began doing their own wishful casting. Most of the suggestions were along the same lines as the original Expendables casting and seemed to focus on seasoned action starlets like Sigourney Weaver, Linda Hamilton and Pam Grier. A curveball was thrown to aspiring casting directors everywhere when Gina Carano and Katee Sackhoff were announced as the first actresses to be signed for the film. So using those two ladies being selected as my inspiration of where I think this film is going casting-wise I came up with my own list.
The Not-So Final Girl is my own little observation about horror movies (most notably the slasher variety) and a tweak on the trope of the Final Girl, in that there is almost always one female character in a slasher film that usually gives the killer a run for his money before finally being taken out or just makes a huge enough impression on the audience (mostly through a strong performance by the actress) that we begin to wish she didn’t have to die.
