SXSW Film Review: ‘Snatchers’

SXSW Film Review: ‘Snatchers’
Clueless” meets “It’s Alive,” among other things, in “Snatchers.” Stephen Cedars and Benji Kleiman’s first feature is a great argument for teenage chastity, in that its high school heroine’s first sexual experience leads overnight to an alien-monster pregnancy and, possibly, the end of the world. See, impulses have consequences!

Moralists may wish that message were delivered a tad more seriously, but there’s a great deal of fun to be had from this high-energy spinoff of an eponymous online series. In a SXSW Midnighters lineup overladen with variable horror comedies, this is at least one genuinely funny entry. It’s got a decent shot at theatrical exposure in addition to bright streaming prospects, all of which will no doubt be boosted by enthusiastic reception on the genre-fest circuit.

Sophomore Sara (Mary Nepi) has become a member of the Madre Vista High in-crowd led by snippy princess Kiana

High School Musical’s Corbin Bleu to Guest on The Fosters; Yes, He’ll Sing; No, He Won’t Shoot Any 3-Pointers

High School Musical’s Corbin Bleu to Guest on The Fosters; Yes, He’ll Sing; No, He Won’t Shoot Any 3-Pointers
High School Musical's Corbin Bleu will guest on The Fosters this coming March, so I guess I owe everyone an apology for trying to shut down that high school. It was a high school devoted solely to singing, dancing, and, to a lesser degree, basketball! How did they even get accreditation? Fortunately for Bleu, he will be appearing in the role of Mercutio in The Fosters' musical-within-a-show Romeo & Juliet. Bleu and fellow guest-star Ashley Argota recently also co-starred in a production of Romeo & Juliet: Love Is a Battlefield produced by Fosters co-creator Bradley Bredeweg. I guess I didn't correctly anticipate the nationwide uptick in high-school-musical-related job opportunities. It was shortsighted, and that is completely on me.

Tim Curry to the 'It' Remake's Pennywise: 'Good Luck'

Congrats to Tim Curry, who made a rare public appearance Sunday night in Los Angeles to accept an award. It was one of the first times the beloved "Rocky Horror Picture Show" star has been in the public eye since a 2012 stroke left him in a wheelchair.

The 69-year-old star may not be the same energetic force we remember as "sweet transvestite" Frank-n-Furter, but he told Moviefone he's "very lucky" to be honored by his peers. "It feels amazing. I feel very lucky," he said of accepting his Lifetime Achievement Award from the Actors Fund.

He also wished "good luck" to Will Poulter ("We're the Millers"), who's been cast as the new Pennywise the clown in the upcoming remake of Stephen King's "It," a role Curry played to perfection in the 1990 mini-series. "It's a wonderful part," Curry said of Stephen King's unforgettable evil clown, who terrorizes a group of children.
