First Look at Jamie Lee Curtis in 'Scream Queens' Revealed!

Our first official look at Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween, Halloween II, Halloween H20, Halloween: Resurrection) as Cathy Munsch, the dean of the college, in Fox's upcoming comedy horror series Scream Queens has just arrived, via Entertainment Weekly, which also has an interview with series creator Ryan Murphy (American Horror Story, Glee), confirming that the show will be an homage to '80s slashers and will feature a masked killer.


Says Murphy: "It’s different than Horror Story. Jamie Lee and I were talking about that in horror movies, particularly in that era, there was always the last girl, the final girl. So we’re playing with that. Whoever survives—and there will be people who will survive—they will go on next season to a new location and a new terror. Unlike Horror Story, which completely reboots, this has some of the continuity in that some of the characters and some of the relationships continue into a new world."

[Interview] Danny Trejo Talks 'Halloween', 'Brady Bunch' and 'Machete'

Danny Trejo is a genre icon who has been in hundreds of films in his career, having faced Michael Myers in Rob Zombie's Halloween and killed as one of the few to go against The Devil's Rejects among many others, but he reached a new level earlier this year with that hilarious Brady Bunch inspired Snickers commercial that everyone can't stop talking about.


We caught up with Trejo at the Mad Monster Party horror convention last month in Charlotte, North Carolina, where we discussed everything from playing Marcia Brady to almost not getting killed by Michael Myers, revealing a shocking alternate fate that was originally intended for his Halloween character.

Gunnar Hansen Comments on New 'Leatherface' Prequel [Exclusive]

While at the Mad Monster Party horror convention in Charlotte, North Carolina this past weekend, we had the pleasure of meeting the legendary Gunnar Hansen, who created the iconic Leatherface in Tobe Hooper's 1974 classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and we learned that Hansen could be returning to the franchise and reprising his role from 2013's Texas Chainsaw 3D as "Boss Sawyer" in the upcoming Leatherface prequel!

Hansen told us that the upcoming prequel will take place 15 years prior to his flashback appearance in the beginning of Texas Chainsaw 3D (and the events of the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre), which means Boss Sawyer and the rest of the Sawyer clan who were slaughtered in the opening of the seventh film in the franchise (including Bill Moseley and other Chainsaw alumni) would still be alive and kicking.
