The world is watching the involuntary manslaughter trial of Michael Jackson‘s personal physician, Conrad Murray. It’s off to an emotional start as the case built against the doctor is being presented. As Murray awaits his fate, we’d like to ask who is really at fault here? Clearly, it’s doctors from movies.

Yes, he did give his patient dangerous drugs. Whether he realized the harm they would cause is beside the point, because Conrad Murray could easily be considered a victim too. A victim of Hollywood’s depiction of doctors. With role models like these, it’s no wonder he turned out negligent.

Dr. Evil

You can’t make an accurate list of evil doctors without including Dr. Evil. Turns out that it’s not an unfortunate name, as Evil has been the brains behind several plots to take over the world and extort its governments. Although, he can’t really be blamed for his evil leanings. He was raised by the Dutch after all.

Dr. Christian Szell

As a former SS dentist at Auschwitz, Dr. Christian Szell uses pain as his paintbrush. That and he looks slightly like a giant sea turtle. But back to the pain thing. A skilled interrogator, Szell drills Dustin Hoffman‘s teeth without anesthetic in Marathon Man while repeatedly asking his confused captive, “Is it safe?” Years later, Hoffman would go on to make Meet The Fockers. When will his suffering end?

Dr. Giggles

Easily dismissed due to his persistent giggle and gimmicky methods of killing victims with over-sized medical tools like giant needles, thermometers, Band-Aids, and blood-pressure arm bands, Dr. Giggle gets a bad rap. He’s perhaps the most insane doctor on this list and therefore one of the most dangerous. In one night, his house-calls severely cut down and entire town’s population. I can’t think of any other time where it was so easy to see a doctor.

‘Drive Angry 3D’ Somehow Garners Filmmakers More Work http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/drive-angry-3d-somehow-garners-filmmakers-more-work/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/drive-angry-3d-somehow-garners-filmmakers-more-work/#comments Thu, 24 Feb 2011 17:56:13 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=29572 While they are already slated to sh*t all over your memories of Hellraiser and Halloween, Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer don't show any signs that they will stop churning out unwatchable horror flicks.

All the best directors work in the nude.

While they are already slated to shit all over your memories of Hellraiser and Halloween, Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer don’t show any signs that they will stop churning out unwatchable horror flicks. The team that gave audiences a headache with My Bloody Valentine 3D and Drive Angry 3D have two more in the pipeline.

First, there’s Circle of Silencea departure from the horror genre for the duo that centers around the still-unsolved real life murder of a police officer murdered in a Harlem mosque back in 1972. It’s filled with political intrigue that is sure to really pop in 3D.

Then there’s Already Dead (aka In Darkness), which I can’t help but be curious about. It’s a vampire movie/courtroom thriller. I like to imagine a courtroom full of all the vampire archetypes. Edward Cullen could play an intrepid young lawyer trying to shake a confession out of Gary Oldman‘s butt-haired dracula, which of course will lead to Dracula shouting, “You can’t handle the tooth!” Yeah, you groan now but I wouldn’t put it past these guys. They did think it would pass as funny to have characters named “Jason” and “Freddy” in My Bloody Valentine. (The Playlist)

‘Hellraiser’ Remake Picks Up A Director And Possibly Amber Heard http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/hellraiser-remake-picks-up-a-director-and-possibly-amber-heard/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/hellraiser-remake-picks-up-a-director-and-possibly-amber-heard/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Let's raise a little hell. Looks like Amber Heard is now Hell's go-to girl when it is breaking loose. Last week we all had a good laugh at the Drive Angry 3D trailer, starring Heard and Nicolas Cage, and today there's news that she may join the on-again, off-again Hellraiser remake. It's reported that lazily-named director Christian E. Christiansen has signed on, and that producers hope to get Heard for their new teen-friendly take on the franchise. We'll keep you posted as the more sanitzed Heckraiser heads toward a start date. (Bloody Disgusting)
