Urban Legend (1998)
Taglines may not be the most important component of a film’s advertising, but having a good one can be beneficial. A good tagline should be something that is memorable, catchy, informative of the films’ plot or tone, and unique. Consider the tagline from Alien, “In space no one will hear you scream,” or Jurassic Park, “An adventure 65 million years in the making.” At other times, movie taglines have been famous quotes from the film. Examples are “One ring to rule them all,” from Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings films, or “All work and no play make Jack a dull boy,” from The Shining. Simply put, having a solid movie tagline is worth the effort.
This is a look at a few films where the effort was clearly lacking or misplaced. Sometimes they are trying too hard.
The first season dealt with the story of Candle Cove. A Creepypasta about a group of people who all remember an old creepy kids show that never existed. This new season is completely separate from the first season and deals with a different Creepypasta. It's called "No-End House". It's a scary house with six rooms that you have to go through to get to the end. Each room scarier than the last.

Now, perhaps motivated by the fact that the mere act of making a movie in 2017 feels like an experiment with life after death, Hollywood is about to unleash a remake starring Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, James Norton, and Kiersey Clemons. Directed by Niels Arden Oplev,
5. I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)
While this movie didn’t get many favorable reviews, Jim Gillespie’s I Know What You Did Last Summer has all the elements of a slasher film. Clueless teenagers and a relentless killer. Loosely adapted from a Lois Duncan novel, Kevin Williamson’s script flips the hit and run incident from a small boy to a fishermen. There was a lot of things that worked in this movie-particularly the attractive cast and the inspiration

While that is up for debate, this is not: If you are swimming in Australia’s waters there is a good chance a shark is somewhere nearby.
In New South Wales, Australia, the government has spent $16 million on the Shark Management Strategy. This is a proactive plan to cut down on the number of shark attacks without harming any sharks. Along with sonar detection, helicopter surveillance and net trails, this strategy also uses drones to capture and study the behavior of sharks near the country’s coastline.

By the mid-’90s, slasher films were considered dead and buried (pun intended), thanks in part to a slew of poorly received sequels to iconic franchises -- Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare and Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday. Until, of course, Scream changed the game entirely.
Praised by theatergoers and critics alike, Scream grossed over $100 million at the domestic box office on a production budget of just $14 million. It was unheard of at the time for horror movies, and, as a result, it fully revitalized the genre. Following the success of Scream, a new generation of horror fans was treated to the

Bruce Campbell, Lucy Lawless, Rob Tapert, and more on Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2...
This article is from Den Of Geek Us.
Every San Diego Comic-Con offers a different experience and a unique hue to its vintage. Thus it’s impossible to rank one Sdcc adventure over another, yet there are moments at each that stand tall. And running into Bruce Campbell and friends on several occasions this past week while they were promoting Ash vs Evil Dead season 2 certainly qualifies as a hard-to-top highlight.
