The upcoming film Hotel Transylvania 2 has audiences checking in once again to the “five stake”-rated hotel run by Dracula and his brood. This kid-friendly tale sinks its teeth into a long established trope, with lodging rooms on screen being the source more many creepy cinema stories. Here’s a list of some of our faves.
One of the best films of all time happens to also have one of the best, most creepy motels ever shot. The master of suspense leaves the big reveal until halfway through the film, but from then on we get a place filled with taxedermied animals, bedrooms with peepholes, and the house that looms over the rooms like a spectre. At the Bates Motel Norman and his mom make for quite the hosts, just careful when you take that shower!

As the casting announcements for Marvel and Netflix’s Luke Cage continue, the latest addition is an actor that most of you should recognize from his various and varied roles in film and TV over the years: Frank Whaley.
According to Deadline, Whaley – most recently seen as child-napping bad guy on Fox’s Gotham – has signed on to play a “hard nosed detective” named Rafael Scarfe. In the Marvel comics, Scarfe is a lieutenant and former partner of Misty Knight’s, who has also served as an ally to Cage and Iron Fist. The character actually became a villain in Shadowland, so though he’ll likely start out on the side of Cage and co., the potential is there for a bit of skulduggery as the series progresses.

The cast is building quickly now for the Marvel/Netflix Luke Cage series: part of the interlocking Defenders quartet that also includes Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist. Mike Colter is Luke Cage (Aka Power Man), with Alfre Woodward, Theo Rossi and Mahershala Ali signed up for other roles. And now there's also Frank Whaley (Pulp Fiction, Under The Dome) who'll be carrying a badge as Detective Rafael Scarfe.Straight from the comics, Scarfe works for the NYPD and is a regular fixture in stories featuring Luke Cage and Iron Fist/Danny Rand (his first appearance was in an Iron Fist issue, "The Name Is Warhawk", in 1975). He used to be Misty Knight's partner before she quit the force to form half of The Daughters Of The Dragon (who frequently teamed up with Cage and Rand as the Heroes For Hire). Scarfe went over to the dark side with some »
According to Deadline, Frank Whaley has joined the cast of Marvel and Netflix's Luke Cage as Detective Scarfe, a character described only as a hard-nosed detective in the series. However, he has a storied history in the comic books, serving as a close ally to characters like Luke, Iron Fist, and Misty Knight.

In Luke Cage, Mike Colter stars as Luke Cage, a wrongly accused man who, granted super strength by a sabotaged experiment, escapes prison to become a superhero for hire. Alfre Woodard, Simone Missick, Theo Rossi, and Rosario Dawson were all recently added to the cast of the series. Are you excited to see Luke Cage? »

Think back to the science fiction cinema of the 1990s, and some of the decade's biggest box-office hits will immediately spring to mind: The Phantom Menace, Jurassic Park, Independence Day, Men In Black, Armageddon and Terminator 2 were all in the top 20 most lucrative films of the era.
But what about the sci-fi films of the 1990s that failed to make even close to the same cultural and financial impact of those big hitters? These are the films this list is devoted to - the flops, the straight-to-video releases, the low-budget and critically-derided. We've picked 50 live-action films that fit these criteria, and dug them up to see whether they're still worth watching in the 21st century.
So here's a mix of everything from hidden classics to forgettable dreck, »
