ROBERT ENGLUND CONFIRMED FOR FAMOUS MONSTERS’ SILVER SCREAM FESTIVAL

Horror icon Robert Englund — Freddy Krueger himself — has confirmed his appearance at Famous Monsters’ Silver Scream Festival, joining his NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET co-star Heather Langenkamp for a tribute to their late director Wes Craven (the ELM STREET series, SCREAM, THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT).

With more than 150 credits, Englund played the scarred slasher Freddy Krueger in all of the original ELM STREET films and has appeared in other genre classics such as URBAN LEGEND, WISHMASTER, HATCHET, and THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, in addition to the 1980s Sci-Fi television series V. He’s twice been nominated for the Saturn Awards for Best Supporting Actor by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Films, and in 2001 was bestowed the Academy’s Life Career Award. His memoir, HOLLYWOOD MONSTER: A WALK DOWN ELM STREET WITH THE MAN OF YOUR DREAMS, was published in 2009.

The Silver Scream Film & Comic Festival, scheduled for March 4-6 in Santa Rosa, California, will screen both A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and NEW NIGHTMARE in honor of Craven. There will also be appearances by seven-time Oscar-winning makeup effects artist Rick Baker (MEN IN BLACK, ED WOOD, THE WOLFMAN) and legendary director John Landis (THE BLUES BROTHERS, ANIMAL HOUSE, TRADING PLACES) in honor of the 35th anniversary of their seminal creature feature AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON; Bela Lugosi Jr.; SIMPSONS character designer Eric Keyes; and graphic novel superstar Darick Robertson, as well as an awards ceremony and screenings of the winning films.

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress.
