Great horror films were not hard to find this year, but as is usually the case the best ones didn’t open wide in theaters nationwide. The studio efforts were once again the year’s lesser genre entries, and while I had some fun with the likes of Annabelle and As Above So Below the fourteen films below offer far more when it comes to chills, thrills and creative atmospheres. And a quick note on some of the other titles you won’t find below… both Afflicted and Willow Creek were on last year’s list, and several movies — Black Mountain Side, Cooties, Creep, Cub, The Editor, It Follows, Spring, What We Do In the Shadows and Zombeavers — would have made this year’s, but they’ve only played festivals and have yet to see an official U.S. release. 14.

Here's the best of Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Crackle for the beginning of December. So cheer up, Charlie Brown! Netflix "Almost Famous" Fifteen years after Cameron Crowe's amazing film about his time as a young "Rolling Stone" intern made us fall in love with Kate Hudson, it remains a singular accomplishment. The immersive, heartfelt movie has an incredible soundtrack and great performances across the board. Never forget that Katy Perry had to change her name from Katy Hudson so as not to be confused with Goldie Hawn's Oscar-nominated daughter. "American Beauty" Kevin Spacey's existential crisis. Annette Bening's fury. Thora Birch's woefulness. Chris Cooper's scariness. These are the kinds of things that make a Best Picture. The dream sequences involving Mena Suvari certainly weren't a detriment. "Batman Forever" Jim Carrey's performance as the Riddler in this cartoonish romp might be the most »

Maybe it was DC Cupcakes, because we didn’t need another cable reality show about cake bosses. Or perhaps it was the latest chronicling of blue-collar workers in Alaska or Louisiana. (Doesn’t Crawfish Catchers look tedious? And we bet you can’t even tell whether that title is real or not). Or it could have been Bravo’s seventh Real Housewives series. Or E!’s fourth Kardashians title. Whatever marked the official tipping point, it all feels familiar now: the master chefs, treasure seekers, tattoo artists, makeover experts, ghost hunters, dirty jobbers, untrained pets, C-list celebrity families, and glow-tanned bickering glambots overturning restaurant tables. »

We TV has pulled the plug on “The Divide,” its first foray into scripted drama series, after one season.
Series revolved around a lawyer’s efforts to prove a death-row inmate was wrongfully convicted. The show was produced in-house by We and hailed from feature vet Richard Lagravenese and “Scandal” star Tony Goldwyn, who wrote and directed the pilot, respectively. John Tinker served as showrunner and exec produced with Lagravenese and Goldwyn.
“We are extremely proud of ‘The Divide’ and grateful to its brilliant creators, Richard Lagravenese and Tony Goldwyn, and an amazing cast and crew, for bringing this story to life as We tv’s first scripted series,” the cabler said in a statement.
“The Divide” had an eight-episode run that began in July. We execs have said expanding into scripted is a priority for the channel, which has undergone a brand makeover during the past year under the leadership of prexy-g. »

Christian Slater has a new title: Mr. Robot.
The Mind Games and Breaking In alum has landed the title role in USA Network’s cyber-crime pilot, which centers on a mysterious anarchist (Slater) who recruits a brilliant cyber security engineer (24‘s Rami Malek) into an underground hacker organization intent on bringing down corporate America.

“It’s great to be back. This is so much more fun than directing movies, I can’t even begin to tell you.”
So quipped Jason Reitman at the start of the fourth season of Film Independent’s Live Read at Lacma series on Oct. 16. Tackling Alan Ball’s Oscar-winning screenplay for “American Beauty,” the director recruited a clutch of actors from his most recent film, “Men, Women and Children.”
Adam Sandler took on Kevin Spacey’s signature role of Lester Burnham, with Rosemarie DeWitt once again playing his wife in the part originated by Annette Bening. Olivia Crocicchia read for Mena Suvari’s teenage sexpot; Travis Tope limned pot-dealer/videographer/amateur-philosopher Ricky Fitts; and Kaitlyn Dever, Dean Norris and Phil Lamarr rounded out the cast.
It would be easy to read the casting as a sort of crypto marketing stunt — as Reitman noted in an aside, “go see the film, »

Who says TV programmers have run out of ideas?
Why, just in the last week, the trade papers have announced deals and casting for as many as 15 new reboots spinoff series and specials. Some sound like familiar shows, others like mutant Frankenstein hybrids of familiar shows. We'll leave it to you to decide which of these programs sound like must-see-tv and which sound like much-skip-tv.
"Care Bears and Cousins." Fuzzy is the new black at Netflix, which is reviving the candy-colored kiddie cartoon series but adding some new characters. No, Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright are not going to have a threesome with one of them.
"Cheerleader Death Squad." The CW has ordered this series, from the showrunners behind "Desperate Housewives" and "Under the Dome" (that'd be Marc Cherry and Neal Baer, respectively) about an elite prep school where the pep squad is made up of spies-in-training. Dan Truly ("Blue »

Does it feel like your Netflix account is always stuck in second gear? Does that metaphor even make sense? It doesn’t matter, because Friends is (finally!) coming to Netflix.
