Flavorwire Exclusive: Leaked Memo Details Michael Bay’s Benghazi Movie, Other Political Thrillers Based on Real Events!

We’ve all had a good, hearty laugh over this idea of cinematic candy purveyor and accomplished public speaker Michael Bay helming a super-serious political thriller about your Fox News-watching great-aunt’s favorite political almost-scandal, Benghazi.

10 Terrible American Remakes of Great Foreign Films

This week, the Criterion Collection unveiled a new Blu-ray edition of The Vanishing, George Sluizer’s critically acclaimed and bluntly effective 1988 Dutch thriller. But it’s also a film with a tainted legacy, as most American moviegoers are far more familiar with the inferior and ill-conceived 1993 remake, starring Jeff Bridges, Kiefer Sutherland, and Sandra Bullock. Yes, it was another case of the disastrous American remake, and rest assured, for every Departed or Birdcage, there are three or four stinkers like these. … Read More

10 Heavy Metal Horror Movies to Watch on Halloween

You don’t have to think for too long to discover the commonalities between heavy metal and Halloween. Evil, horror, blood, gore, and ugliness go hand-in-hand with the imagery often used by your favorite metal band. And even people who don’t listen to metal seem to love to dress up like a campy, C-grade ’80s hair metal band — or, for those with a bit more imagination, a member of Slipknot. But this year, Flavorwire encourages you to think beyond the stereotypical metal-themed Halloween revelry and dig deep into the darker psychological recesses of human existence.

To help you do this, we chatted with Mike McPhadden, author of Heavy Metal Movies: Guitar Barbarians, Mutant Bimbos & Cult Zombies Amok in the 666 Most Ear-and Eye-Ripping Big Scream Films Ever! We picked ten horror — or just plain psychologically disturbing films — from McPhadden’s book that, while not always “metal” in the strictest sense, spotilight religious and spiritual tropes that are often used within metal lyricism and imagery, with enough blood and gore splatter to make your Halloween evening a memorable – if not disturbing — one. … Read More

‘Bruk Out!': Inside the Hypersexual and Totally Empowered World of Dancehall Queens

“Bruk out” may be a phrase known only to Jamaican dancehall novices via the early Major Lazer song of the same name. Essentially it means to get wild, and by Major Lazer’s interpretation, the “Bruk Out” world centers around a gold-digging stripper named Jill. If documentary director Cori McKenna has her way, however, some may come to associate the phrase with a portrait of female strength via dancehall’s hypersexualized moves. … Read More
