TriStarThis week the remake of Sam Raimi's classic horror flick "Evil Dead" hits theaters everywhere. You might have seen the poster, which reads, "The Most Terrifying Film You Will Ever Experience." That's a pretty bold statement. While the movie is really freakin' scary -- not to mention exceedingly bloody -- it's not the most terrifying one we've ever seen. Below you'll find flicks that truly horrified, unsettled, and unnerved the editors at Yahoo! Movies.Read More »from The Most Terrifying Films We’ve Ever Experienced

The poster for "Only God Forgives," unveiled last November, teases a decidedly violent thriller with its simple yet disconcerting image of one of Hollywood's most handsome leading men, Ryan Gosling, beat to a disfiguring pulp. Now, the red-band trailer for the film makes for a vivid companion piece with its gorgeous imagery of smashing fists, flying bullets, swinging swords and an ever-stoic Gosling asking, "Wanna fight?"
We do, in fact!Read More »from Redband Trailer: Ryan Gosling Picks a Fight or Two in ‘Only God Forgives’

'Upstream Color' (erbp)Shane Carruth's first movie, "Primer," takes all the paradoxes and mind-bending possibilities of time travel and distills them into one 77-minute-long head trip. If you saw it, you're probably still trying to figure out what that all was about. Carruth wrote, directed, shot, starred in, and composed the score for the movie, making him easily one of the most independent of all independent filmmakers out there.
Carruth's follow-up movie, "Upstream Color," is much stranger and more biological. If David Cronenberg and Terrence Malick ever got together and made a movie, it might just look something like this. The world that Carruth creates is as maddeningly opaque as it is compelling. This is not a flick that is easily summarized, but it centers on Kris (Amy Seitz), a woman who, after suffering a devastating if baffling crime, finds herself seeking out safety and comfort in the equally damaged Jeff (Carruth). But they both seem to be part of a surrealist ecosystem that involves worms -- which petty thugs use to create some kind of mind-controlling drug. And there are those menacing blooms of blue organisms. And a band of orchid thieves. And then there's that pig farmer who may or may not be God.

This year's MTV Movie Awards, airing later this month, has a bunch of goodies in store. One of them: the first two-and-a-half minutes of "Catching Fire" footage, to be introduced by Gale Hawthorne himself, Liam Hemsworth.
But first, you can catch an initial ultrafast glimpse of the extremely anticipated sequel to last year's box office smash "The Hunger Games," starring freshly minted Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Melark.

Getty Images/MarvelZoe Saldana is already a favorite among sci-fi fans, and it looks like she'll be putting that reputation to good use in her next project.
It was announced Wednesday that Saldana is in talks to co-star in the screen adaptation of "Guardians of the Galaxy," another comic book project from Marvel Studios. Saldana is in the running to play Gamora, a green-skinned warrior who is the last survivor of a humanoid race all but wiped out by their enemies the Badoon. Gamora will be roaming the outer reaches of space in the film, and given Saldana's experience aboard a starship in "Star Trek" and as a blue-skinned alien in "Avatar," she seems made to order for this role.Read More »from Zoe Saldana Goes Green For Marvel’s “Guardians Of The Galaxy’

Screenwriter Ruth Prawer Jhabvala (Photo: Evan Agostini/Getty Images)Critically-lauded and award-winning novelist and "Howard's End" screenwriter Ruth Prawer Jhabvala passed away Wednesday at her home in New York City. Her daughter Firoza told the L.A. Times Jhabvala died after battling a long illness. She was 85.
Over the course of her very successful professional life, the German-born author and screenwriter wrote 12 novels, eight short story collections and 23 screenplays. Jhabvala's screenwriting career was born out of her work as a novelist, when in 1961 the newly-formed filmmaking duo of producer Ismail Merchant and director James Ivory traveled from New York to Delhi to ask Jhabvala to sell them her book "The Householder" and to also pen the screenplay. That meeting led to a long friendship and many fruitful collaborations for Merchant Ivory Productions, which included Jhabvala's Oscar-winning adaptations of "A Room with a View" in 1985 and "Howard's End" in 1992, as well as scripts for "The Bostonians" and "The Remains of the Day."Read More »from Oscar-winning ‘Room With A View’ Screenwriter Dead At 85

Tom Hardy, right, and a young fan in New York (Photo: Splash News)Aww. Looksie the wee wittle Bane!
We couldn't help but notice the normally menacing Tom Hardy, known for his serious, ass-kicking roles in "The Dark Knight Rises," "Lawless," and "Inception," in an uncharacteristic moment of whimsey.
Hardy took a break from filming the crime drama "Animal Rescue" as he posed with a young fan on Tuesday in Brooklyn, New York.
The little guy was dressed as Hardy's infamous Bane character from "Rises."
I wonder how many little Banes will be running around next Halloween? Hmm.Read More »from Spotted on Set: Bane Never Looked So Cute, Tom Hardy Ain’t So Bad

The Purge (Universal Pictures)For Ethan Hawke, one "Assault on Precinct 13" remake isn't enough.
John Carpenter's 1976 genre mini-classic (remade in 2005 with Hawke and Laurence Fishburne in the leads) meets, I dunno, "1984" or something in "The Purge," a film that hands-down has the most ridiculous and offensively cynical premise of the movie year so far.Read More »from New Trailer: ‘The Purge’ Is Frontrunner For Most Stupidly Cynical Film of the Year
