Great Moments in Horror Actressing: Margot Kidder

"This genre gives actresses some really juicy lines and roles,but denies them the acclaim that comes from more 'serious' roles.Kidder was a gifted actress who was indelible in a few films."-Lady Edith

"She won a Genie for it - because Canadians have great taste!"-Mike in Canada

Beauty vs Beast: Scream in your PJs

Jason fromMNPPhere - if you went and saw David Gordon Green'sHalloweenthis weekend did you catch that voice cameo in the classroom scene?Mirroring a near identical scene in John Carpenter's original we see the granddaughter of Laurie Strode discussing the subject of Fate in her English class,and the voice of her teacher is none other than that of P.J.Soles,aka Lynda from the first movie and a total Horror Icon.Totally!And so we feel like giving some love to,whose seal of vocal approval must count for at least 50 million dollars of its insane opening weekend box office.Totally.Just two years beforeHalloweenSoles memorably co-starred in Brian De Palma'sCarrieas Norma,another example of "girls making really bad choices in their best friends,and so let's face them down...

PREVIOUSLYClearly we're on a Halloween kick,having gone the Jamie Lee Curtis route last week - only this time it was Linsday Lohan who got shivved with a knitting needle in the neck,JLC taking just under 90 PERCENT of yourvote on ourFreaky Fridaypoll.Ouch,way to kick a redhead when she's down,y'all!SaidMareko:

"Lohan is indeed great in this movie—it still pains me to think of what could've been had she stayed focused on her talent vs.celebrity—but Curtis is the real MVP,no question.Love that the NYT stanned for her so hard in 2003,as you do,and she should've *easily* scored an Oscar nom over the likes of Naomi Watts and even Samantha Morton."

Beauty vs Beast: Ye Olde Switcheroo Movie

Jason fromMNPPhere with this week's "Beauty vs Beast"-- this Friday the latest iteration of the freak-filledHalloweenfranchise hits theaters,but what of another Freaky Friday that cast the great Jamie Lee Curtis in a pivotal role?In 2003 - yes it turned 15 this past August,if you want to feel ancient) Mark Waters' remake ofFreaky Fridaywith Curtis playing mama (then daughter) to daughter (then mama) Lindsay Lohan hit theaters,and it was a great big hit success with everybody.(I mean Jamie Lee should've snagged an Oscar nom,dammit.) So why don't we all eat a fortune cookie and repeat after me...

PREVIOUSLYWe ventured back toWes Anderson'sRushmorelast weekand y'all took Bill Murray's side in a squeaker (just 53%) - saidlylee:

"Team Blume only because Max is so annoying (even though they're both annoying,and Blume in some ways has less excuse to be so immature)!Really,the beauty here is Olivia Williams,whom I found very appealing in this,if a little softer-edged than in her later roles.She's still one of my favorite slightly-below-the-radar actresses out there today."

Months of Meryl: A Prairie Home Companion (2006)

JohnandMattheware watching every single live-action film starring Meryl Streep.

#33 —YolandaJohnson,a Midwestern songstress and longtime staple of the titular radio show.

MATTHEW: Two of the most revered artists in American cinema history,Robert Altman and Meryl Streep each built their lauded careers by probing into characters from countless corners of the world,driven by an ardent and undiminished interest in the micro — but never minor — idiosyncrasies of collective human behavior.For those who believe in the supernatural forces of fate,there is something undeniably kismetic in Streep and Altman's first collaboration,which would turn out to be this mighty auteur's valedictory effort.A Prairie Home Companion,Altman's final film,is a moving backstage comedy that sketches out the (fictional) final broadcast of the historic and beloved Minnesota radio variety show of the title,created and hosted byGarrison Keillor,who also scripted the picture.(Keillor was fired from his program in November of last year over allegations of sexual misconduct.) Brimming,like all of Altman's work,with an abundance of people and all their peculiarities,A Prairie Home Companionrelies on the character-inhabiting talents of an irresistible and excitingly-paired ensemble,whose every member gets ample opportunity to ingest spirit and specificity into a wide array of oddballs and straight-men,from Woody Harrelson and John C.Reilly's ribald cowboys to Maya Rudolph's quietly panicked and heavily pregnant stage manager to the pair of aging songbirds brought to fanciful,rueful life by Streep and Lily Tomlin.

As Yolanda and Rhonda Johnson,the two surviving members of a four-sister singing act,Streep and Tomlin are,quite simply,a match made in acting heaven...
