No one could be happier to kiss '93 goodby than Kim Basinger. Last year at this time, the actress was facing a multimillion-dollar civil suit over a role that changed her life forever. Ironically, it was a role she never performed. As the new year rolls in, Basinger finds herself focusing on her new marriage to Alec Baldwin, thinking of starting a family and rebuilding her shattered career--all in the midst of wiping out everything she owns. "I feel as though I have been through a crash course in life," Basinger says.

The 2013 Viscera Film Festival invades the American Cinematheque's Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood on July 13, presenting a blood-curdling evening of two programs of new horror-film shorts. But this scare-fest has a twist: All these tidbits of terror have been directed by a coterie of women. They hail from the United States, Canada, Mexico, England and Japan. The event kicks off with a "Bloody Carpet" ceremony and a tribute to this year's Inspiration Award recipient, Jennifer Lynch.  The daughter of iconoclastic director David Lynch, she has helmed such films as 1993's controversial "Boxing Helena," 2008's "Surveillance" and 2012's "Chained.

Her debut provocation, 1993's "Boxing Helena," revealed the limits of artistic heredity, and now director Jennifer Lynch -- daughter of David -- has returned with the prankish, ultra-violent hell ride "Surveillance." But, again, her quest to unnerve feels forced.

"It FEELS kind of miraculous being here and kind of surreal," Jennifer Lynch said as she picked on a light lunch Wednesday afternoon, just hours before her official reemergence from a long stretch in the wilderness. "Surveillance," Lynch's second feature as director -- and her first since 1993's much-derided amputee fairy tale "Boxing Helena" -- was scheduled to have its world premiere as a midnight screening at the Cannes Film Festival later that night. A twisty thriller with an unabashedly nasty streak and an almost theatrical taste for excess, the movie stars Bill Pullman and Julia Ormond as FBI agents investigating a massacre in the flatlands of Nebraska, where they must contend with the dim local cops and a host of highly unreliable witnesses.

Ads call Madonna's new movie "the erotic thriller of the year." But anyone under age 17 can see the pop star bare her breasts and make steamy love to Willem Dafoe in "Body of Evidence"--if they are accompanied by an adult. It's rated R. On the other hand, the movie industry's toughest warning to parents was given to the upcoming "Wide Sargasso Sea," an art-house film that has only modest lovemaking scenes compared to "Body of Evidence" or last year's R-rated "Basic Instinct."

Sixteen years after the release of her first film, "Boxing Helena," filmmaker Jennifer Lynch still can't believe the often toxic personal attacks she endured from critics over her controversial love story involving obsession and amputation. "Obviously, I am not going to make something that everybody likes all the time," says the 41-year-old Lynch, who enjoys exploring the dark side of life as much as her famous filmmaker father, David Lynch. "But the venom was really extreme on this.

In Hollywood, movie deals involving millions of dollars are routinely made with a simple handshake. It's often the case that a film has been completed before the lawyers work out the details and the star signs a contract. This may be common in industry circles. But will it make sense to a jury of Los Angeles County residents? That's the question this week as actress Kim Basinger confronts charges that she backed out of a movie she allegedly had agreed to star in. Main Line Pictures Inc.
