The 7 Best B-Level Villains

  • Pajiba
Just because they're A-List in our hearts, it just doesn't put them amongst the top hombres in Hollywood. Here's to the skeezy, low-life, double-crossing, drug-dealing mobsters. Here's to the foreign-accent brandishing, government vendetta-swearing, well financed anarcho-terrorists. The schemers, the dastardly dreamers, the life-time cons and dapper dons. The militants, belligerents, the crass and the eternally bad-ass.

1. Jurgen Prochnow

Every good villain list has to include a German. They're always three steps ahead of the good guy, but one good foot in the ass from being foiled. Cultured, composed, always crooked.

Bad Guy Roles: The Replacement Killers, Judge Dredd, Beverly Hills Cop II

Bad-Ass Moment: Trusting Brigitte Nielsen with his plans in the Alphabet Robberies. Seriously, giving that chick an electric toothbrush takes balls.

2. Vernon Wells

It's not his fault chainmail can't stop Ah-nold from throwing a steam pipe through his chest. His legend should be bigger, but just like Major League Baseball,

Horror at the Oscars Part 2: This Time It's Personal

Horror fanatics are still buzzing like chainsaws over the Academy Awards’ genre montage. Anywhere there could be a conversation about it online, there was one. Many were upset over the Twilight ‘tweens’ participation, as if their mere presence sent a message about the state of scary in Hollyweird, USA.

A few seemed happy, though, to just get a glimpse of their beloved Evil Dead and Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 if only for a few seconds. But many called the selections generic and thoughtless, demanding the likes of Demons and TerrorVision instead (well, maybe not TerrorVision; that was just me).

How about Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer? Re-Animator? It’s Alive? Tombs of the Blind Dead? Coffin Joe? No list is perfect, but with a bit more care and a phone call to any one of us, the Oscars could have elevated that section into a real scream. Or maybe they

Horror at the Oscars Part 1: The Quickening

It’s that time of year again, kids. Dread Central’s 2010 Horror at the Oscars coverage. Horror was indeed present this year and in black-tie. While Roger Corman and Lauren Bacall were honored a few months back at the Governor’s Award Ceremony, it was an unexpected delight to see Corman, recipient of the lifetime achievement Oscar, enjoy a standing ovation on national television.

I was, however, very disappointed that neither of them were allowed to speak. Roger Corman’s contributions to modern cinema are too vast for him to just stand up and wave. James Cameron was one of many Corman acolytes present, and his nomination speaks to Corman’s tremendous legacy. On the Terminator DVD Cameron mentions, "I trained at the Roger Corman Film School.” Jonathan Demme, Martin Scorsese, and Francis Ford Coppola, among many others, were also former students.

The terror continued with a spoof of Paranormal Activity

‘1408′ Writer Headed for the ‘Pet Sematary’

You remember Pet Sematary, that Stephen King book-turned-movie about undead house pets and zombie toddlers, which was one of the originators of the ‘Indian burial ground’ plot device? Well Pet Sematary is headed for remake town along with a bunch of other movies and to get it there, Paramount is tapping writer Matthew Greenburg to script the film.

Greenburg comes with a horror movie background, having recently adapted another Stephen King story, 1408, for the big screen. Other screenwriting credits include Reign of Fire, Halloween H20 and The Prophecy II.

For those who don’t remember, Pet Sematary is about a couple who move from the city to the country in order to raise their young son. They live by a busy highway and one afternoon the family cat ends up as roadkill. The father buries the cat in a small pet cemetery in the woods and soon after the cat comes back,

1408 Screenwriter Remaking Stephen King’s Pet Sematary

1408 Screenwriter Remaking Stephen King’s Pet Sematary
1408 screenwriter Matthew Greenberg has been hired to pen a remake of another Stephen King adaptation, Pet Sematary. Transformers/G.I. Joe/1408 producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura is attached, and the project is set up at Paramount Pictures. Aside from the previous King adaptation, Greenberg's screenwriting credits include a bunch of subpar genre efforts: Reign of Fire, Halloween H20 and The Prophecy II. No director has been attached. King's original novel was published in 1983, and was nominated for Best Novel at the World Fantasy Awards the next year. The book was brought to the big screen in 1989 with a film directed by Mary Lambert, and starring Dale Midkiff, Denise Crosby and Fred Gwynne. There was also a sequel, Pet Sematary II, which was met with less financial success and critical acclaim. At one point Alphaville was trying to get a remake off the ground with Face/Off scribes Mike Werb and Michael
