Festival of fear

How many chances do you get to see your favorite horror film star up close, without the makeup, without the axe in hand? Well unless you travel around North America, following conventions, probably not that often. Here is a chance for all you fright seekers on the east coast to mingle with the scariest of them all.

Toronto, the home of Movieposter.com, is hosting the 2005 Rue Morgue: Festival of Fear. This event promises to make lovers of the horror genre, and entice those who already can't get enough.

Reading the list of stars that will be there surprises me. I have never been to a convention like this but I have heard of the magnitude that they can reach. Here is a list of some of the actors and directors that will be there,

Clive Barker - writer/director Hellraiser



Elijah Wood - Lord of the Rings, Sin City




Linda Blair - Exorcist



Gunnar Hansen - Leatherface, Texas Chainsaw Massacre



Ken Foree - Devil's Rejects, Dawn of the dead



I will personally be attending this convention. Apparently there will be more then just the horror genre present. From the ads I've read, comic book, sci fi and other genres will be there aswell.

Mr. and Mrs. SEXY!


I'm not one for hype, but I am one for gorgeous actors sharing a romantic scene. I don't really care if Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie did have phone sex, or any other type of sex that broke up his marriage to Jen Aniston for that matter. Mr and Mrs Smith is going to be my summer blockbuster. Pitt and Jolie are #1 on my top hottest male and female actors list. A combo like this doesn't come around very often. Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock tried in Speed, but failed in my opinion. Cruise and Kidman in Eyes Wide Shut was a pretty anticipated match, but the onscreen chemistry just wasn't there, dispite their real life marridge.

I don't think either actor has looked as good as they do now. Brad keeps in amazing shape, manages to get his body ripped before each movie and it definitely helps. Angelina will never get tired in my eyes. The new trailer depicts the steamier scenes in the movie, and there are not 2 other actors I would rather see rolling under the covers.
