    Sigourney Weaver Confirms Her Character’s Son For ‘Ghostbusters 3’; Says There Could Another ‘Aliens’ Story To Tell

    Well, actress Sigourney Weaver is certainly a chatty Cathy as of late.

    When Women and Hollywood asked me if I wanted to do a couple of guest posts on horror movies, I jumped at the chance. Like Kerensa Cadenas mentioned in her introduction to the series, I have an abiding fascination with horror movies and the way they manage to articulate seemingly inarticulable fears...
