What was the first song you ever listened to? Did it make you pregnant? That’s what happens to young Mormon girl Rachel (Julia Garner) in Electrick Children. Her family in shock, she runs away from the fundamentalist Utah commune and into Las Vegas, followed by her brother, Mr. Wills (Liam Aiken), to find the father of her magical foetus. There she meets teenage loser Clyde (Rory Culkin).

Fused with an honest love of music and faith, it’s a beautiful piece of magic realism from debut director Rebecca Thomas.

How much of it is based on her own childhood as a Mormon? Does music really have the ability to knock you up? And what does all of this have to do with Billy Zane?

Julia Gardner, Electrick Children

Director: Rebecca Thomas
Cast: Julia Gardner, Rory Culkin, Billy Zane

Drew Barrymore's starring role in Scream is one of the most famous of modern movie cameos. And now Anna Paquin and Kristen Bell are set to continue that tradition in Scream 4.

The pair have both signed on to appear in Wes Craven's fourth Scream movie. It's already started shooting around Ann Arbor Michigan, with the old cast of Courteney Cox, Neve Campbell and David Arquette reuniting for what may well be a franchise reboot.

Newcomers to the Craven fold include Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Rory Culkin and Marley Shelton, all of whom are just waiting to be sliced and diced by Ghostface.

As for Anna and Kristen? There's no word on their characters or the nature of the cameos, but you can bet they won't last long. Unless they're really, really good at answering horror trivia questions.
