Halloween Hangover -- More Celebrity Costumes! 

by Nathaniel R

Lady Gaga as Edward Scissorhands! (Hmmm, she might make a great fit for a future Tim Burton movie.) ICYMI we rounded up celebrities who got all dolled up for the holiday on Halloween night - many in movie-themed costumes!

But the pictures kept on coming so here are a handful more. Sarah Michelle Gellar, and more after the jump...

Beauty Break: Stars in Halloween Costumes

by Nathaniel R

Octavia Spencer announced on Halloween that she'd be dressing up as an actor "instead of a cat with boobs."That's a perfect nonsense funny to make while sharing a photoshopped portrait of yourself, don'cha think?! But the girls who won Halloween on the internet were these three adorables in this widely circulated photo of Hidden Figures costumes. Little mini Tarajis, Octavias, and Janelles, yaaas. 

Some celebrities actually did dress up for the holiday -- and not for an acting job --  this holiday so we're sharing the pics we could find. Patricia Clarkson, Zoe Kravitz, Samuel L Jackson, Busy Phillips, Kristen Bell and many more after the jump...

Moviegoers were in a horror mood -- what else is new? -- which is appropriate for Halloween time. Three of the top five were specifically seasonal while It logged what is probably it's last week in the top ten with another 2 million for its historical box office winnings. It's the highest grossing horror film ever now but only #4 of all time (not adjusted for inflation) in terms of R-rated films. It won't be able to overtake any of the top three: The Passion of the Christ, Deadpool, and American Sniper since it will surely lose a huge swath of theaters next weekend when everything at the multiplexes has to make room for Thor: Ragnarok...

This Is Halloween

By Salim Garami

What's Good? We're less than a week away from the spookiest time of the year so let's talk about what the holiday means in the cinematic sense. These are personal impressions and I hope you'll share your own as well.

We start with the actual season in itself: the autumn colors are there in a very muted way that signify the beginning of the end of the year in all its resigned reds and oranges. The palette chases away the greens and blues that took over the summer, although one could certainly see faint glimmers of those colors to remind us of the months past. Such as in Spielberg's E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and its Halloween scene, glowing with yellowish twilight and orange rays in the sun that reflect on the suburban homes and streets Elliot and his friends walk...
