REST IN PEACE: Wes Craven (1939-2015)

According to a number of reputable sources, iconic horror director Wes Craven died Sunday evening following an ongoing battle with brain cancer. He was 76 years old.

Born August 2, 1939, in Cleveland, Ohio, Craven began his professional career in academia before taking a job as a sound editor for a post-production company based in New York. This change of scenery eventually attributed to his first credited feature, The Last House On The Left, which he wrote, directed, and edited in 1972. While this initial shocker was followed by a string of other notable titles (The People


‘Scream’ Is Now A TV Show & It Does Not Look Good

“You can’t do a slasher movie as a TV series.”

It’s as if the characters in Scream — the official TV series based on Wes Craven’s hit film that is allegedly an over-the-top remake of the original film, stretched to ten hours in length — want you to hate them. The series’ first promos, which premiered Sunday night during the MTV Movie Awards, offered a taste of the so-called carnage and terror that lies in store across three incredibly short montages. You can view all three clips below.

You will no doubt notice Bella Thorn, who appears in the network’s …

MUSIC VIDEO: Usher – Scream

Usher has released the music video for the single “Scream” and it can be described in one word, amazing.

This song/video has so much personality and gives Usher a boost, with a much more upbeat and club-ready anthem. Be sure to pick up his new release, Looking 4 Myself, which dropped yesterday via LaFace/Zomba. UTG is all over this release so go grab your copy now.

UTG LIST: Top 5 “Scream” Trilogy Kills

In celebration of the DVD/Blu Ray release of Scream 4 this week, UTG has compiled our 5 favorite kill from the original trilogy!

Kills, thrills, laughs, and Gale Weathers’ terrible outfits, the Scream films really have it all. Even if you think some of the sequels fell a bit short of the original (I still struggle to remember 3 at times), there is no way you can deny their impact on horror and pop culture as a whole. Hell, we may have never had the Scary Movie series without these gems (wait, would that be a bad thing?).
