Kellan Lutz, now most famous for his role as Emmett Cullen in The Twilight Saga movies, is rumored to be joining the cast of 2010's A Nightmare on Elm Street -- a modern remake of the popular '80s horror flick.
Lutz is no stranger to the horror genre, as he appeared in 2008's low-budget slash-fest Prom Night, which was -- surprise, surprise -- another '80s retelling gone bad. He's scheduled to play a "popular high school jock," which sounds similar to his recent part in the revamped version of 90210. He pulled that off quite convincingly, so it shouldn't be too much of a challenge for him.
Also rumored to be joining him are Thomas Dekker (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) and Kyle Gallner (The Haunting in Connecticut, Veronica Mars). Do we really need another horror movie remake? It's the same formula every time: hot, young cast + modern setting = box-office failure. Still, maybe this one will fare better. After all, no one can pull a crowd like a Twilight actor can. Posted 04.24.09 by reelz

In the new horror flick Prom Night, Brittany Snow (Hairspray) stars as a perky high school senior whose big dance is crashed by an escaped mental patient who just happened to murder her entire family three years prior. Does this slasher flick remake compare with the original 1980 version? Check out our Prom Night review. Posted 04.11.08 by reelz
Horror movie villains are often modeled after real-life figures. As most genre fans know, the famously creepy mask worn by Halloween's iconic villain Michael Myers was actually a store-bought William Shatner mask, its hair teased out and face spray-painted white.
Bearing that in mind, it's hard not to notice that the murderous stalker of the new slasher flick Prom Night bears a remarkable resemblance to a certain chronically underemployed, astoundingly fecund former beau of tabloid queen Britney Spears. Did Prom Night's producers intentionally model villain Johnathon Schaech's baseball-hat-and-five-o'clock-shadow ensemble after Kevin Federline? Check out a screening of Prom Night and let us know what you think. Posted 04.11.08 by reelz
