What we're watching: Ok, so this might not be "Mom friendly" fare (then again, who's to say your Mom isn't super cool and totally twisted...), but the musical horror comedy STAGE FRIGHT hits theaters today, and we can't wait to see it! Starring Allie MacDonald and Douglas Smith, plus appearances by Minnie Driver and Meat Loaf, STAGE FRIGHT follows a teen working at a musical theatre camp who gets caught in the clutches of a masked killer. Just based on the trailer -- watch below -- we think it's bound to be darkly hilarious!
