Ridley Scott Talking Alien Prequel

I know, Ridley Scott’s a guy.  So what am I doing talking about him on Terror Hotties?  Well, it’s actually pretty simple.  See, he’s talking about an ALIEN PREQUEL.  And that’s got a really, REALLY, good chance of involving Sigourney Weaver.  The thought of that is enough to really get me.

Now, no one’s sure what exactly it’ll be about.  The only thing Scott’s been able to confirm is that a script is in fact being written for it.  This by itself is a slice of fried awesome in and of itself, even though I’m personally hoping for a little background on that crashed alien ship back on LV 426 or whatever the planet’s name was.

Scream Awards Best Sci-Fi Actress: Is This Some Kind of Joke?


(Megan Fox)

Okay, I don’t know who’s running the Scream Awards, but for crying out loud.  Giving Megan Fox a Best Actress award…that’s just not right.  Megan Fox isn’t an actress!  She’s a SET PIECE!  Seriously, what did she do for the Transformers series besides provide yet another lure for the target market?  She sure didn’t ACT!  I don’t even know what you call what she did but it definitely wasn’t acting.

When you consider that both Eliza Duskhu and Lena Headey were available, both prime terror hotties each, to hand over the Scream Award to a quasi-functional mannequin like Megan Fox is either a joke or an insult.  Maybe it’s both.  Maybe it’s an insulting joke in the style of Michael Richards’ infamous stand up comedy night.

Scary Movie To Get Remake

(Anna Faris)

You might not think of the brilliant and at the same time white hot Anna Faris as a terror hottie, but as the centerpiece of every Scary Movie installment to date it’s not such a stretch.  Anyway, that terror hottie laden franchise (if you start adding up the cameos you get a HUGE number of terror hotties) is looking to come back with–get this!–both a sequel and a remake.

Going into almost concurrent development is Scary Movie 5, and a remake of the original Scary Movie.  Now, some might say that the original Scary Movie really isn’t that old, and they’d be right.  But in these days of rampant Hollywood desperation, it’s not surprising to find them pushing to milk any cash cow they can get their hands on.

Sea of Dust Takes Best of Fest

(Ingrid Pitt)

Kentucky’s Fright Night Film Festival has recently announced the Best of the Fest award winner, and the lucky title is Sea of Dust from horror master Tom Savini and terror hottie Ingrid Pitt.

Described as a “satirical title” of “an otherworldly evil that threatens to possess humanity” and a “bizarre tribute to the European horror cinema of the 1960s”, Sea of Dust has taken its share of awards so fare, and was Fright Night’s keystone Friday night projection.  It has also taken a Best Picture Grand Prize from RIIFF, the Rhode Island International Film Festival.

Terror Hotties Face Down Satanic Cult Nightmare

Nikki Taylor Melton, Janette Benton, Danielle Block, Victoria Vukovic Bradley, Heather Chilson and Melissa Chirello-Wood are the absolutely mind-bogglingly large list of terror hotties behind Marc Selz’s upcoming Satanic Panic, a movie that carries the standard red flag warning that is “inspired by a true story” status.

When ten year old twins Toby and Cindy Richards were abducted by satanic cult members in 1980–as was every parent’s fear back in the eighties–Cindy manages to escape, but Toby remains missing to this very day.  But twenty five years later, as a group of canoeing friends run afoul of the same satanic cult that stole Toby, they’ve got the fight of their lives on their hands as they try to escape a small town full of horrors and satanic cultists.

Filming Begins on Not a Boggy Creek Remake


(Melissa Carnell)

Despite what you may think, Boggy Creek is not really a remake of the 1971 film The Legend of Boggy Creek.  Involving terror hotties Melissa Carnell and Stephanie Honore, this is actually described as “a thriller that centers around a story of five young kids who get caught out in a swamp in Boggy Creek, Texas”. From there, they end up taking on a massive shaggy monstrousity that lives in the swampy ground around Boggy Creek which is apparently almost but not quite exactly the same thing as a Bigfoot / sasquatch / monster from 1971’s The Legend of Boggy Creek.

Well, as far as I’m concerned, if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck then you’d better check the thing for feathers and a waterproof ass because chances are, you’ve got a duck.  You don’t just make a movie about the same thing as someone else and expect people to NOT call it a remake, or a reimagining or whatever the hell re-word you want to attach to it.

Murder, Mayhem, Sugary Treats and Terror Hotties in Butcher’s Hill

Jackie Rhoads puts on the terror hottie mantle in upcoming Butcher’s Hill, apparently also called Sweet Tooth, a movie that shows that sugary treats are often a prelude to mass murder and cannibalism.

There’s a teaser trailer already out for this little doozy, and it’s pretty…well…it’s something, anyway–whether or not you’ll call it good depends entirely on your tolerances.  Originally, it was a short film that was later expanded to a feature after its popularity at Screamfest back in 2008.  It’s about a man who takes his family fortune and runs off with a man named Brian, leaving behind his wife and two children who must now move to a middle of nowhere burg in New England, and as we all know, one of the greatest rules of horror movies is that the worst shit always goes down in New England.

Brittany Murphy Tackles Earth-Destroying Earthquake

All right, SyFy buffs who just can’t get enough of cheesy disaster fare–brace yourselves!  October 10th will bring the premiere of MegaFault, featuring terror hottie Brittany Murphy, alongside genre name Eriq La Salle.  It’ll then open on DVD November 24th, just in case you can’t bring yourself to actually watch a show on a network with a phoenetically spelled title.

Brittany Murphy plays a seismologist, and Eriq La Salle a miner, who discover that there’s a gigantic fault line running underneath the Earth’s surface.  If an earthquake goes off there, it could tear the entire planet in half.

Godkiller On Shelves Now!

By the time you read this, gentle reader, you’ll be able to indulge your desire for terror hotties by getting your hands on Godkiller: Walk Among Us episode 1 on DVD when it comes out October sixth.  Godkiller contains a pretty sweet load of terror hotties by putting both Danielle Harris and Tiffany Shepis in the same place, as well as bringing in Nicki Clyne, Katie Nisa and Lydia Lunch.

This return to adult comic book fare in the vein of Ralph Bakshi is actually a pretty exciting development and should be downright interesting, as long as it doesn’t get too outlandish, which is what Repo! The Genetic Opera’s big mistake was.  Look, challenging the audience is cool and all, but there’s a difference between attainable challenges and disturbing impossibilities.

Fresh Casting News of Priest


(Maggie Q)

There are plenty of terror hotties in Priest–both Madchen Amick and Maggie Q are on board–but the movie, described as a post-apocalyptic vampire thriller, is adding on cast members like no tomorrow.  Now inclded are Christopher Plummer and genre favorite Brad Dourif.

Now, if this sounds like a killer combination to you then you’re not alone.  Considering the plot of the movie involves all these folks in a post-apocalyptic world inhabited by, among other things, vampires and warrior priests, and the warrior priest in question is out to track down a group of vampires that kidnapped his niece, there’s a whole lot to like here, and you might as well get in while the getting’s good.

Dreamgirls Star Comes Back For A Little Murder


(Sharon Leal)

No, that’s not terror hottie Sharon Leal’s Friday night schedule–that’s the title of her next appearance.  She’ll be joining Saw star Cary Elwes (whom I’ll always remember for his romp through Robin Hood: Men in Tights) and fellow terror hottie Deborah Ann Woll in the upcoming release Little Murder.

Sophie Vavasseur Takes On The Devil

Sophie Vavasseur serves as the terror hottie of the day with the upcoming Exorcismus from Filmax.

This is actually a Spanish import, which is interesting enough by itself, especially given the success of Rec over here and the success of the remake, Quarantine.  And this one sounds like it could be almost as good.

Basically, this time, we’re following a girl named Suzy, whose family is worried about her.  She’s been behaving strangely, and her family is beginning to wonder if the cause of it all might not be demonic possession.  So they call in a priest, who tries solving the problem with hypnosis rather than jumping straight to the exorcism.  The result of the hypnosis meanwhile is…disturbing.

Dylan’s Wake To Pack In The Terror Hotties


(Amy Smart)

If you’re as excited as I am by the concept of Rose McGowan and Amy Smart in the same movie, then you’ll definitely be looking forward to the upcoming Dylan’s Wake.

Described as both a “supernatural love story” and a “horror mystery”, Dylan’s Wake centers on a young funeral parlor worker trying to unravel a ten-year-old mystery.  Filming is already currently underway in Iowa, and oddly enough, the whole thing is being bankrolled by a combination of private equity and Iowa tax incentives.

More Terror Hotties to Follow the After Dark Horrorfest

Coming this January to theaters–though probably not any near you–is the annual fourth installment of the After Dark Horrorfest, some of the best horror on Earth.

And already I’m worried, because one of the films involved in the 2010 installment is based on a short story by no less than Clive Barker, but featuring terror hottie Laura Donnelly.

Guess Who’ll Be Back In Resident Evil Four?


(Ali Larter

As hesitant as I am to admit there will be a Resident Evil Four in the first place (I actually did like the third one, but only because of the heavy dystopian content), I am however happy to announce that it’s a familiar face will be coming back for this installment, none other than terror hottie Ali Larter.

She’ll be reprising her role as Claire Redfield in the upcoming zombie heavy presentation– at least, I hope it’s zombie heavy– and not only that, she’ll also be appearing in 3-D. I happen to really enjoy the thought of seeing Ali Larter in 3-D, so maybe this installment won’t be all bad after all.
