Some spooky movies just stay with you, especially when you see them as an impressionable kid. So in honor of Halloween, I asked you to chime in with the first childhood flick that scarred you. Some are outright frightening, while others are unintentionally scary. Take a look at this list — courtesy of Buzz readers — and please, leave the lights on.
If it's bad, it'll just be drawn that way: '80s animated/live action classic Who Framed Roger Rabbit? is getting a sequel, 21 years after its release.
The film's director, Bob Zemeckis, has confirmed that a Roger Rabbit sequel is moving forward, and the original screenwriters are working on a script. Zemeckis is looking forward to using digital tools to update this new installment, which makes me wonder just how different this movie will look from the 1988 original. There are also no details yet on the plot or which characters will be returning — though I assume that Roger and Jessica Rabbit will be back, not having aged a cartoon day.
I'm very curious about this project, considering that the original director and writer are on board, but I wonder if the same humor will hold up; it could either be a total disaster, or a modernized take on the movie. What do you think of this news?
This Easter weekend, bunny-related things will be everywhere, so I thought I'd add to the frenzy with a rabbit-themed Movie Night! The bunnies in these films aren't necessarily the cuddly springtime icons we normally associate with Easter, because those kinds of bunnies don't make the greatest movie characters. So grab your pile of Peeps and prepare for a "hare-raising" night. (I know, sorry, sorry.)
Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit
If you're familiar with Wallace and Gromit, then you may already adore this movie, and if you're not, this is a perfect opportunity to fall in love with the endearing British duo. Bucktoothed, cheese-loving inventor Wallace and his mute, loyal dog Gromit are determined to solve the case of a giant were-rabbit (like werewolf, but a rabbit) who is terrorizing the town's vegetable growers. Watching this film I had to marvel at how completely entertaining a claymation movie can be for a grown-up, and I appreciated the many adult jokes.
