The Most Appropriately Hilarious and Ridiculously Bad Haircuts on Film

It’s September and you know what that means: Halloween is right around the corner! No, we don’t want to rush the year away, but once Labor Day comes and goes, stores start to load up on Halloween gear and those seasonal costume stores begin to pop up everywhere.

This past weekend we had a potential costume craze bomb on the big screen in Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star. In the film, Nick Swardson leads as Bucky, a small-town guy who wants to follow his parents into the porn biz.

Bucky’s a bit awkward from head to toe, but the most striking element of this guy’s look is certainly that hair. Should you opt to pick up a Bucky-like wig and toss that on for Halloween, we doubt many people will know who you are, but if you’re in the market for a hairpiece-based getup – appropriately hilarious or ridiculously bad – some of these might serve as inspiration.

Interview: Scream 4 Director Wes Craven

When I was 10 years old I sat next to my mother and watched Casey Becker, sans insides, hang from a tree. Yes, the image made it tough to sleep at night for quite a bit, but Scream also left a long-lasting impression in the best way possible. Just a year later, my grandparents were kind enough to take me for not one, but two viewings of Scream 2 and finally, by 2000, I found ways to sneak into R-rated movies so I could enjoy the third film minus a guardian. Having grown up with this franchise, getting to speak with Wes Craven about resurrecting the franchise with Scream 4 is honestly a dream come true.

On the other hand, the pressure is on for Craven. I’m not the only moviegoer who’s a dedicated franchise fan, meaning that in Scream 4 Craven doesn’t just have to do the original films justice, but he’s got to offer something new. No, the general story of Scream 4 or the decision to make another Scream film for that matter didn’t come from Craven, but the director certainly had a strong impact on the project from the moment Bob Weinstein offered him the gig.

Check out everything Craven had to say about bringing the franchise back to life, summoning the old, adding some new and where we can expect the series to go from here.

‘Scream 4’ vs. ‘Final Destination 5’: Battle Of The Horror Sequels

As a devoted fan of both the ‘Scream’ and ‘Final Destination’ franchises, the latest installments are two of the most highly anticipated releases of 2011. But, as much as I’m looking forward to ‘Scream 4’ on April 15th and to ‘Final Destination 5’ on August 26th, there’s no denying the fact that ‘Scream 3’ and ‘The Final Destination’ just weren’t very good. This is going to be a battle of redemption for each series and while our fingers are crossed both will exceed expectations, the horror film sequel odds are not in their favor.

Battle 1: Directors & Writers

‘Scream 4’
From the moment ‘Scream 4’ was announced, that seemed to be a likely winner. Why would Wes Craven return to a beloved franchise ten years later if he didn’t have a viable reason to do so? Originally, the answer was that he did have the reason to do so and it was likely because someone came up with a good story that made rebooting the franchise a worthy investment. After following the production process from beginning to end, hopes were still high, but then ‘My Soul to Take’ arrived and … yeah.

New Faces Take Over ‘Scream’ Franchise; Will The Alum Be Cleared Out In The Opening Scene?

With the “Scream 4” production’s July start date fast approaching, Wes Craven is getting down to business and trying to nab some hot young stars so the “Scream” alum can hand off the franchise to a new generation. As we reported earlier, Lake Bell is currently in negotiations to join the cast and Ashley Greene, Hayden Panettiere and Rory Culkin have all been offered key parts.

With Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courteney Cox set to reprise their roles from the original three films, these new characters clearly must have a connection to one, if not all, of our old friends from Woodsboro. If the deals go through, the most direct of the bunch will be Greene’s character, Jill. Not only is she Sidney Prescott’s cousin, but she’ll also be assuming the role of the film’s leading lady. Panettiere’s role is Jill’s best friend, a major movie geek, and Culkin would play Jill’s love interest. The closest to sealing the deal is Bell, who will play a police officer Sidney knows from her high school days.

Scream 4 Casting Kicks Off With Ashley Greene And Hayden Panettiere

Let the Scream 4 casting rumors begin, and begin with a bang at that. According to THR, Lake Bell is in the midst of negotiations and offers have been sent Ashley Greene,Hayden Panettiere and Rory Culkin’s way. But that’s not all–the article reveals the roles they’re going for, and they reveal some juicy plot details.

Much of the team from the first film–Wes Craven, Kevin Williamson, Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courteney Cox– are returning, which means the newcomers have to be tied into the characters we know. If all goes to plan, Bell will play a police officer who knew Campbell’s Sidney, while Greene gets a juicier role as Sidney’s cousin, Jill, and the series’ new leading lady.
