Tim Allen Reveals The Original Plan For 'The Santa Clause' Was Way Too Dark For Disney

We've all seen The Santa Clause at least a dozen times, right? It's a Christmas classic and ever since it was released, it has become a staple in our holiday movie schedule. There's something about the movie that manages to keep that Christmas feeling without being way too over the top or corny. I mean, sure, Tim Allen literally becomes Santa, but somehow it all feels like that's totally plausible. The sequels may not have the same realistic feeling, but the original remains iconic. However, Allen just revealed that the original plan for the movie was a lot darker than

I know there were a lot of classic horror movies that came out when we were young, but you know what else there were? A whole bunch of movies disguised as these feel-good children's movies or cartoons that were safe for kids that ended up scarring us for life. A lot of movies out there that had these sequences in them that haunted our nightmares, crossing our minds when we were trying to go to bed. Then there were others that gave us a grim realistic view of the mortality of us all, and let me tell you, we weren't

'Mannequin' Was One Of The Weirdest Movies Of The 80s, And We've Still Got Some Questions

I know that 80s movies are a category of their own. Sure, there are rom-coms and action movies, but then there are also 80s rom-coms and 80s action movies. They are different, they are unparalleled, and they are just better than other movies. Case in point: Mannequin. The outrageously bizarre 80s rom-com brings joy to all of our hearts (or at least those lucky enough to remember it) even though the premise is absolute bonkers. Here's the thing, I love this movie with my whole heart. I can probably quote the entire thing to you right now (I won't) but

'Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret' Is Finally Getting A Judy Blume-Approved Movie

Judy Blume is one of those classic authors that creates stories that transcend time. One of her most famous books called Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret was published all the way back in 1970, but it still resonates today. The story follows young Margaret Simon as she makes her way through one of the most difficult time in her life: puberty. We've all been there, we all made it through, but we all remember what it was like to go through all of those changes. Margaret became something of a touchstone for young girls who were dealing with

'Mermaids' Was The Weirdest Movie Of The 90s But No One Remembers It

There are a lot of forgotten movies from our childhood. Some probably deserve to be forgotten, while others were too weird so they were just not appreciated as much as they should have been. One of these often ignored movies was the 1990 movie Mermaids. Sure, it's not really about mermaids specifically, but if there is any human in the world who is basically a real-life mermaid, it would be Cher. It's definitely a weird movie though, I mean, do you even remember how insane the plot was? Cher stars in this bizarre story about an unconventional family in the

'Halloween' Producer Wants To Revive 'Scream' And 'I Know What You Did Last Summer'

When it comes to classic horror movies, I think we can all agree that Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer are two of the best. These movies are iconic, and while a lot of people hate remakes and reboots, there's one person who is itching to get his hands on them. Jason Blum and his company, Blumhouse Productions is responsible for several iconic horror movies. He's also the one taking a run at bringing back Michael Meyers in the new installment of Halloween.

Wile E. Coyote Is Finally Getting His Own Movie So The Road Runner Better Watch Out

Everyone has watched Bugs Bunny and his buddies get up to all kinds of crazy hijinks, and we all had our favorite characters. Some people really loved watching Sylvester fail to catch Tweety, while others preferred to watch Bugs completely humiliate Elmer Fudd. For me, Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner were always one of my favorite parts of the entire show. If you ever need a lesson on persistence, Wile was your guy. No matter how badly he failed, how many cliffs he fell off of, or mountains he ran into, that dedicated and hungry fellow never gave
