Marley Shelton

Planet of Terror Rose McGowan

They said it couldn’t be done. A fifth year of 31 Days of Horror? 31 more terror, gore and shower scene-filled movies worth highlighting? But Rejects always say die and never back away from a challenge, so we’ve rounded up the horror fans among us and put together another month’s worth of genre fun. Enjoy! Synopsis In Robert Rodriguez’s instant zombie classic, a small Texas town becomes ground zero for a gruesome epidemic when the Army’s “Project Terror” – a biochemical doomsday weapon – mutates a platoon of soldiers (and eventually most of the townspeople) into raving, pustulent cannibals. Leading the charge against the zombies are a hard-assed sheriff (Michael Biehn), a lone wolf with a checkered past (Freddy Rodriguez (no relation to Robert)) and Cherry Darling – a one-legged go-go dancer (Rose McGowan). Of course, she’s not one-legged at the start of the film. That would make no sense. How she loses the leg and winds up with a machine gun prosthetic is a tale for the annals of horror legend.


Carla Gugino - Sex Scout

I know what you’re thinking: “That’s not what the regulation Sex Scouts uniform looks like! Couldn’t this production have done any research?!” And you’d be right, but you’d be missing the point. In Elektra Luxx, Carla Gugino reprises her role as the titular porn star who has given up the business for baby. And, yes, it’s hers. The funny, sexy, strange, soap-y comedy was written and directed by Sebastian Gutierrez as the meat of a Women in Trouble and Women in Ecstasy trilogy. It’s got the same heart, ovaries and potty mouth as the first, and it now has more Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a sex blogger. Check out the surprisingly not-red-band trailer for yourself:


Carla Gugino as the title character in ELEKTRA LUXX (2)

Women can be smart, strong and sexy all at the same time. It’s true. They can also add to that pile a bit of insecurity, sensitivity and compassion. And about two dozen other emotions and states of mind that men don’t even have words for yet. It is that dynamic nature of women that Carla Gugino and the rest of the cast of Women In Trouble and its sequel, Elektra Luxx, attempt to capture alongside a healthy bit of soap operatics and sexual comedy. Gugino plays a porn star who finds out that she’s pregnant and stands as the center piece of several other stories that intertwine directly and thematically. Both movies are great, and now Elektra Luxx is seeing the light of day and so are these images:



As shooting begins in Michigan this week, the production known as Scream 4 is getting more supporting cast to go along with previously tagged slasher victims Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Rory Culkin and Nico Tortorella. This time around it’s a few more recognizable faces for the Wes Craven directed fourquel, including Adam Brody, Marley Shelton and Erik Knudsen.



(Untitled) is a sharp satire, pitched at a precise tone, that’s the perfect movie for anyone who’s ever questioned what makes some modern art, art.



We’ve been beating the Women in Trouble drum quite loudly lately, haven’t we? And for good reason, as it was by and large one of our favorite SXSW ’09 films.


Carla Gugino Spells Trouble

A very cool new advertisement for Women In Trouble has popped on the internet on our site. Did I mention it involves Carla Gugino looking sexy as always? I have now. So check it out.



Kevin Carr breaks down the week’s releases, looking at G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Julie & Julia, and A Perfect Getaway.



Sebastian Gutierrez’s interwoven story of ten women on the craziest day of their lives is emerging from the festival circuit and coming to a theater near you. Fair warning – Carla Gugino plays a porn star.



One of our favorite films from this year’s South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival was undoubtedly Sebastian Gutierrez’s Women in Trouble. Therefore we’ve scored two clips from two of our favorite scenes and we’d like to share them with you.



Carla Gugino. Connie Britton. Marley Shelton. Cameron Richardson. Emmanuelle Chriqui. Rya Kihlstedt. And Sebastian Gutierrez, the pied-piper who got them all to strip down to their underwear. They all sit down with Cole Abaius to discuss the brilliance of their latest film.



What does it take to make a good, honest comedy driven by a cast completely comprised by women? For one, it needs to take its female characters seriously. Take for example, Sebastian Gutierrez’s new film Women in Trouble.



Of all the things we love, Carla Gugino is definitely near the top. So to hear that Gugino’s next role might be as a smokin’ hot porn star makes us, well, happy.



Fans of this year’s underground internet sensation turned box office flub Grindhouse will know exactly who I am talking about when I say the name Marley Shelton. That is, as long as you stuck around for the credits.
