We all have dreams of being with someone older than us. The one that is out of reach and sits only in our fantasy like a teacher, co-worker or perhaps a babysitter. In director Chris Peckover’s latest horror film Safe Neighborhood, we learn that such desires can be deadly. Opening as a similar story line to the recent wave of tense home invasion films, Peckover tells the story of family going through the motions during the holidays. Led by talented veteran actors such as Virginia Madsen (Candyman), Patrick Warburton (Family Guy) and rising talent like Levi Miller (Pan) and Olivia DeJonge as well as Ed Oxenbould of The Visit, we find that Luke (Miller) even in his early teen years still needs a babysitter. With a night of partying, Luke’s parent’s (Madsen and Warburton) are heading off to another Christmas get together, expecting just another night of their kids being babysat. »

It's the age old tug-of-war between art and commerce: movie studios want products they can sell, but they don't want them to look like something off a production line. They want movies that look and feel different, but not so different that audiences are too bewildered to buy a cinema ticket. In interviews, studio bosses and producers often talk about a filmmaker's "unique vision", and they often sound sincere while doing so. Yet the reality of spending huge sums on mainstream movies generally means that studios will often wind up feeling nervous when the cold reality of that vision becomes apparent.
Many films deal with the aftermath of a family death by becoming about how their characters live with the pain — it changing them into different people. Some distinctly show them living despite it instead. Rather than depict Connor (Marton Csokas) and Alise (Vera Farmiga) as the death of their baby girl just ten months prior consumes them, Jordan Roberts’ Burn Your Maps portrays their desire to move on after their transformations are complete. They’re searching for a future they hope exists but cannot yet see. They’ve dealt with grief already (at least they’re frustrated enough to believe they have), so now it’s time to embrace the life that remains. While their son Wes (Jacob Tremblay) readies for what this entails, we’re still uncertain if they are too.
But don’t think this story is one steeped in heavy drama from start to finish without room to breathe. »

When one custody battle closes, another door (to an ill-advised but salaciously entertaining thruple) opens.
Throw a side-eye in my direction for kicking off this week’s Mistresses recap with a wish that ignores the obvious followup question (“What about Baby Vivian?!”), but you know the thought crossed your mind, too, after Alec’s dropped his brief but infuriating play for full custody.

Six days before The Bachelorette‘s Joelle Fletcher selects her one true love, the annual “Men Tell All” special revealed 11 untold secrets from the season — and had us wondering why it wasn’t called “Little Boys Tell All.”
Indeed, much of the two-hour special found JoJo’s rejects bickering amongst themselves like children, with actor bad-boy Chad throwing most of the (metaphorical) punches. Below, please enjoy a smattering of the evening’s biggest jaw-droppers:

Potential serial killer Mitchell Hawthorne (and his corpse) are no longer.
American Gothic Season 1 Episode 2 followed the Hawthorne family in the wake of their patriach's death, as they prepared for his funeral. More secrets came to light and more potential Sbk suspects emerged.
I've decided that Brady is the best (or at least most interesting) character, though he is honestly pretty stupid and a terrible cop.
Perhaps working with the incredibly one-note brash and ball-busting Detective Cutter (who is an actual, offensively transparent caricature of a "hard-nosed lady cop") will do Brady some good.
At the very least, she forces him to challenge his assumptions. I understand that this is TV, not reality, but the idea that Brady would completely ignore the non-laborer workers who were present when the belt wound up in the concrete was so stupid that it actually pulled me out of watching the show. I had »
