I was just watching a clip of tonight’s episode of The CW’s H8r — in which Kim Kardashian confronts a rather salty woman who openly hates her (pictured) — and kept imagining what would happen if someone suddenly reached over and attempted to flick Kim’s doll eyes shut. I’ve been fantasizing about this for months. Would she continue to smile placidly and caress her synthetic doll hair? Would the doll lashes snap off? Would she cross over to an even darker element and become the Kim Kardashian Old Navy Robot? Would she die? Because dolls are supposed to die when you do that. READ FULL STORY

Boxing hobbits! Elijah Wood and Dominic Monaghan 'beat the s--' out of each other at Fantastic Fest -- VIDEO
A couple of weeks back, Fantastic Fest organizer Tim League spoke to us about his then upcoming debate and boxing match with bare knuckle pugilist James Quinn McDonagh, star of the Austin, Texas fest’s selection Knuckle. What League neglected to mention (the swine!) was that another of the night’s bouts would feature Lord of the Rings co-stars “Relentless” Elijah Wood and “Domineering” Dominic Monaghan.
That’s right, on Saturday, Frodo and Merry stepped in the ring to first argue the merits of World of Warcraft and then, in the words of Wood, “beat the s— out of one other.”
The website for the chilling new series American Horror Story is called YoureGoingToDieInThere.com. Sure, it doesn’t have quite the same easygoing panache as, say Facebook.com, and it sounds like it could also possibly be a thinly veiled threat from Tamar Braxton, but it’s still a pretty cool site.
Upon entering the site, visitors are informed they can “go behind closed doors to discover the secrets of the American Horror Story house” where you’ll find “artifacts of murder, lust, perversion, and betrayal.” (So, sorta just like your Sims house!) After a stop at the mailbox (you can sign up to have trinkets sent to you via email or snail mail to unlock parts of the website), you’ll be greeted by ghost children, Jessica Lange, and a man on fire who crawls up into the fireplace. Hey, you can’t say they didn’t warn you. This website is called YoureGoingToDieInThere.com, after all. READ FULL STORY
You remember the old tag line, courtesy of the classic 1979 sci-fi thriller Alien, “In space, no one can hear you scream”? While that may be true (I’ve never been to space, but I can say with the utmost certainty, I would freak out to deaf ears the entire time), people can most definitely hear you scream when you’re in a movie theater watching a freaky flick set in the infinite galaxy.
I’ve never met a person without a single pop-culture-caused childhood scar — and I don’t mean horseplay gone wrong because you thought you could fight like the kids on Three Ninjas without it ending in disaster. No, I’m talking about the real childhood scars. The ones that are so embedded in your brain that they still make you shudder just a little, like when you get up from bed to close the closet door before turning out the light (guilty!) or when you realize your toes are hanging over the bed (not that this shrimp knows what that feels like) and quickly curl up to get them back on mattress territory. For me, a lot of my irrational minor fears actually stem from one of my absolute favorite shows: Goosebumps. READ FULL STORY
Fright Night (1985) vs. Fright Night (2011): Why the update's far more old-fashioned than the classic
Real men do not read Twilight.
That’s what high school kid Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) tells his nerdy, vampire-obsessed friend Evil Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) in the 2011 update of the campy horror classic Fright Night. What he’s really saying is clear: this is not going to be one of those romantic vampire movies where some pale, skinny guy messes around with a pretty young promise-ring type but refrains from sticking it in her (his tooth, that is).
And Charley’s right. The vampire in this movie (a bloodlicker named Jerry, played by real-life nighthawk Colin Farrell) is not a moral guy. Living on the outskirts of Las Vegas, he’s a stripper-torturing, teenage-girl-perverting, Real Housewives of New Jersey-watching fang-banger who preys on single moms and brags to the cops that he’s making the local women scream every night. (Read EW’s excellent defense of Jerry’s horrible, disgusting mercilessness here.)
So what’s that bad boy doing in such a conservative movie? After the jump, we’ll discuss why this sexier, bloodier update is actually far more old-fashioned than the 1985 original. WARNING: There are tons of major spoilers below. Plus, “Edward Cullen” and “chastity belt” are used very close together. Read at your own risk.
I have trouble believing that people “trust” celebrities. That’s probably because I have trouble trusting anyone. (My sister: “Try this mascara!” Me: “What’s your motive?”) At any rate, a survey of humans claims Betty White is the most popular and “most trusted” celebrity.
Meanwhile, you wouldn’t let Paris Hilton or Charlie Sheen babysit your hamster, much less consider them worthy of your “trust.” Lauds to you, America, for your excellent judge of character. (But jeers for making Paris Hilton a celebrity in the first place. Thankfully, you’re over that.)
More fun facts from said poll, conducted by Reuters/Ipsos to determine the celebrity most likely to drive up the business of a brand they endorse: You also trust the likes of America’s male sweetheart Tom Hanks; America’s actual sweetheart Sandra Bullock; the man who narrated a movie about little adorable penguins, Morgan Freeman; and Kate Middleton, who reuses her clothes, officially giving us all no reason not to trust her. Joining Hilton and Sheen at the bottom
(of humanity), is Britney Spears, Kanye West, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tiger Woods, Kim Kardashian, Mel Gibson, Donald Trump and LeBron James.
What do you think of that list, PopWatchers? Who would you add/subtract?
Because when I think “torture porn,” I immediately think “good-time family fun.” Don’t you?! Horror auteur Eli Roth is teaming up with Universal Studios to create a theme-park riff on his 2005 genre-reviving film, Hostel. “Eli Roth’s Hostel: Hunting Season,” takes its bloody bow at Universal Studios’ Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights on Sept. 23 and will run through Halloween.
