‘Grindhouse 9: Laserblast’ Review

Stars: Kim Milford, Cheryl Smith, Gianni Russo, Ron Masak, Dennis Burkley, Barry Cutler, Mike Bobenko, Eddie Deezen, Keenan Wynn, Roddy McDowall, Rick Walters | Written by Franne Schacht, Frank Ray Perilli | Directed by Michael Rae

The latest release from 88 Films’ Grindhouse Collection label, Laserblast is a very early Charles Band production that, for fans of 80s Dtv productions, is probably one of the most notoriously “bad” movies to come from the Full Moon head honcho. Notorious in so much that the cover art for the VHS release (also present on this DVD) should be in the bad movie hall of fame… And so should some of the acting!

For those interested in a plot, Laserblast tells the story of Billy Duncan, a put-upon teenage loner who, after being bullied by two local teens and given a speeding ticket by two police deputies, wanders into the desert and discovers a laser

Sean Young talks about the new horror movie 'Jug Face' (and why she may boycott the next 'Blade Runner' movie)

Sean Young talks about the new horror movie 'Jug Face' (and why she may boycott the next 'Blade Runner' movie)
In the new horror movie Jug Face, Sean Young, Larry Fessenden, and Lauren Ashley Carter play members of a backwoods cult which sacrifices people to a pit-dwelling monster. Sounds creepily intriguing? Indeed it does. And we haven’t even mentioned the ghosts. Or the incest. Or, for that matter, the artisanal jug-making.

The directorial debut of Chad Crawford Kinkle, Jug Face is currently available on VOD and arrives in cinemas this Friday. Below, the endearingly candid Sean Young talks about the film — and much, much more.

Entertainment Weekly: Hi, how’s it going?

Sean Young: Good, good.

Bachelor Star Lands Ava Gardner Role
A star of America's TV dating show The Bachelor is set to make her acting debut - as legendary screen beauty Ava Gardner.

Gia Allemand auditioned for the role of Frank Sinatra's one-time wife shortly after her stint on The Bachelor ended and producer Gianni Russo admits he was stunned by her talents the moment she walked in to the room.

He tells the Globe, "She looks a lot like Ava, but it's really the passion that she had that convinced me to cast her."

The Godfather star insists his untitled movie will be more fact than fiction because he actually knew Sinatra.

Top 10 ‘They had it coming’ movie deaths

They were smug, evil, or maybe just plain stupid. Here’s our list of the top ten ‘They had it coming’ movie deaths…

"They had it coming. They had it coming. They had it coming all along."

So sang the hosiery-clad vixens of smash hit musical Chicago. Of course, they were referring to the many men they had brutally murdered, whereas I'm responsible for the deaths of no one on this list. But it's an appropriate introduction to a run-down of movie characters who, for one reason or another, really did bring their own cinematic demise on themselves.

Undoubtedly some of the 10 deserved their deaths more than the others. But as I've watched each of them shuffle off this mortal coil, either shaking my head in sorrow or slapping my thigh in triumph, I've been compelled to declare on each occasion, "Well, they asked for that."

'Bachelor Pad' Star Gia Allemand to Play Screen Siren Ava Gardner

"Bachelor Pad" beauty Gia Allemand has been cast as legendary screen siren Ava Gardner in a biopic about 'The Godfather' star and reported Mafia connection Gianni Russo. Russo calls Gia's (who was part of Jake Pavelka's "Bachelor" season) casting in the small role a "Cinderella story," and says he is happy to pay it forward since he was afforded a similar career opportunity years ago. "It's a small role. Gia looks a lot like Ava, but it's really the passion that she had that convinced me to cast her," Russo tells Zap2it.com. "Forty years ago someone did this for me. They stuck their neck out." "I was pursuing him to cast me as Ava," says Allemand. "After I heard about Mr. Russo signing on a napkin for 'The Godfather' (at The Palm in Manhattan in 1969), I recited Ava's whole life to him
