15 Killer Body Counts

The leaves have changed colors, there's a chill in the air, and the kids on your block are already plotting their elaborate revenge for the lousy off-brand candy you're planning on putting in the bowl, come October 31st. It's almost Halloween, gang, and in honor of the unholyday, your pals at RT decided it would be fun to compile a list of some of the most iconic serial killers in horror film history. You'll find Freddy and Jason here, of course, but we've also made room for a few less obvious choices, and we've scoured the internet to come up with our estimates. Let the slashing begin!More…

Pictures Picture Gallery of the Week: Saw VI Yes, this is also going to be a shameless plug for the marathon series I just concluded for the Saw series. If you ever find yourself trapped in a bizzare and violent movie watching session, here's a tip: find a chaser.

See Saw with Alex, Day 6: Saw VI

Saw is a rare horror series that maintains narrative integrity; the movies are completely unwatchable if you haven't seen (and discussed and dissected) previous entries. It's something that's as commendable as it is something to lament. I appreciate the writers' pursuit in building a mythology, but (especially in the sequels after IV) the end results are movies that feel increasingly small and lacking in clarity. Both V and VI end with the same sudden tone of "Tune in next year, kids!" At first it was fun to chew through all the backstory the filmmakers tossed at us. Now, it's dissatisfying to sit through movies that are lacking semblances of conclusion.More…

Critics Consensus: Astro Boy Doesn't Quite Soar

This week at the movies, we've got an anime hero (Astro Boy, with voice work from Kristen Bell and Nicolas Cage); a vampire war ( Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant, starring Chris Massoglia and John C. Reilly); an aviation pioneer (Amelia, starring Hilary Swank and Richard Gere); and gore galore (Saw VI, starring Costas Mandylor and Mark Rolston). What do the critics have to say? Osamu Tezuka's Astro Boy is one of anime's most iconic and venerable characters. Now he's getting the big-screen CGI treatment, and the result, critics say, is an energetic but derivative affair. In the film, Astro Boy is a young robot with super powers who learns, slowly but surely, what it means to be human; he also must protect his new-found friends from danger.More…

Six Horrible Part Sixes

With the seemingly never-ending Saw series notching up its sixth instalment this week -- that's six in just six years, which must be some kind of series record -- weary audiences and critics may well be wondering whether it's time for the filmmakers to put down the torture tools. (Of course, that's unlikely to happen if the reliable Halloween grosses continue to roll in on as predicted.) How will Jigsaw's latest outing rank next to these horror franchises, whose part sixes invariably rank among the series' very worst? Oh and don't get us started on Cosby riding an ostrich. The horror, the horror...More…
