Lindsay Lohan to Play Porn Star in New Movie - In Entertainment (blog)

Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan was reported to have signed up to star in an upcoming indie movie by the name of "Inferno" last month, in which she would play Linda Lovelace – the late porn star most famous for the 1972 hard-core film "Deep Throat."

At the time there was no confirmation, so many may have just taken it with a pinch of salt. But now however, her photographer pal Tyler Shields is said to have confirmed the news to eonline.com at the weekend, that Lohan has indeed landed the role.

Tyler says that he has spoken to the movie's director Matthew Wilder, about Lindsay's new role. According to a report at Gossip Cop, Wilder and his producers are planning to announce "Inferno" later this month, at the Cannes Film Festival.

For a period of time after Linda Lovelace left the adult movie business, she ironically became an anti-pornography activist. Lovelace died back in 2002 at the age of 53, from injuries that she had suffered in a car accident. You can read more of this story here.

'Nightmare on Elm Street' movie review: Freddy Krueger returns in ... - NJ.com

Posted: 30 Apr 2010 01:49 AM PDT

freddy-kruger-nightmare-on-elm-street.jpgJackie Earle Haley portrays the classic horror-movie villain Freddy Krueger in the new remake of "A Nightmare on Elm Street."Freddy's dead.

But that never stopped him before.

And so, the famous villain of the "Nightmare on Elm Street" horror series — who first raised his ugly head back in 1984, and survived a slew of mostly crummy sequels — is back, rebooted and looking for blood.

And box-office.


A Nightmare on
Elm Street

(R) New Line (102 min.)

Directed by Samuel Bayer. With Jackie Earle Haley. Now playing in New Jersey .

Stephen Whitty's rating: Two stars

Rating note: The film contains graphic gore, strong language, substance abuse.



He may find it. Put out by Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes company — a ruthless recycler of old horror movies — "Nightmare" avoids the traps of their earlier remakes of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," "The Amityville Horror" and "Friday the 13th."

For once, the truly annoying characters have been kept off screen (in the "Friday the 13th" re-do, you were actually rooting for Jason). And the fratboy factor — gratuitous nudity, dope jokes and stupid double-entendres — has been dialed way down.

These are all smart subtractions.

But what's also been lost is the first film's genuine surrealism — phones that grew tongues, arms that expanded to cut off exits. The remake has dumbed-down its source to a genre it always transcended: the slice-and-dice, snip-and-quip gore film.

It starts off well with a spooky multi-media title sequence, then sketches in the story: A nasty, razor-fingered man named Freddy Krueger prowls the dreams of Springwood teens — and plays for keeps. If he kills you while you sleep, you never wake up.

Welcome to his nightmare.

This was original director Wes Craven's great idea, and he made it work by developing characters and casting wisely, whether it was corn-fed amateurs like the charmingly gauche Heather Langenkamp or babyfaced bohemians like the young Johnny Depp.

But here, Rooney Mara, the heroine, looks more bored than terrified; classmate Katie Cassidy looks less like a highschooler than a hardened Hollywood wife. And while Kyle Gallner, our pasty and bushy-browed hero, seems to have been groomed to evoke Robert Pattinson, all he recalls is Kate Winslet in "The Reader" — only less butch.

The one real actor on hand, Jackie Earle Haley, does what he can with Freddie; the makeup gives his disfigured face an eerie, snakehead look, and he conjures up some real emotion in the flashbacks. But he doesn't have original star Robert Englund's vocal panache; this Freddy is a dully rasping monster.

The movie hasn't been thoughtlessly changed; obviously some debate went into every tweak. Characters are killed off early, to start things off fast. The mythos has been rewritten to include "micro-naps" — five-second nod-outs that allow plenty of here's-Freddy shock effects.

Both revisions were clearly made to cater to a modern audience.

But what they really do is patronize. As the huge success of "Paranormal Activity" proved again last year, you don't need shock and gore to grab an audience. You need empathetic heroes, a strong situation, and a carefully built mood.

And as far as those go, this "

Elm Street
" is a dead end.
