A Guide to the Serial Killers (and Infamous Murderers) Taking Over Film and TV

From Jack the Ripper to John Wayne Gacy to Aileen Wuornos, the horrific legacies of serial killers have managed to both appall and intrigue, as people attempt to explore and understand the darkest depths of the human psyche. Hollywood has mined this territory for years, with dozens of scripted true-crime movies and TV series exploring the “why” of those who snap.

But why are we so obsessed? Alex Wolff, who stars in the new movie My Friend Dahmer, about the high school years of the notorious mass murderer Jeffrey Dahmer, has a theory. “People are interested in seeing how things happen and maybe finding out what things could be different,” he tells Et. “Like, what is it about him that’s so different from me, or my next-door neighbor who seems a little bit off? That’s why people are interested in seeing the birth of things like this -- for their own comfort, for their own life

Of all the dysfunctional relationships on How to Get Away With Murder — and there are many — it might be Annalise and Bonnie’s that tops the Most Messed-Up list.

As we are reminded in a series of flashbacks in Thursday’s episode, we’ve watched Annalise and her former colleague go through all sorts of emotional dynamics in the last three years: Bonnie begging Annalise not to fire her after it was revealed she had kissed Annalise’s husband; Annalise fiercely reassuring Bonnie that she does love her; Bonnie and Annalise sharing a lip-lock of their own when Annalise was particularly drunk one night.

Dancing With the Stars Week 6 Recap: Did the Right Couple Go Home?

Dancing With the Stars Week 6 Recap: Did the Right Couple Go Home?
It’s all too appropriate that Monday’s episode of Dancing With the Stars was dubbed “A Night At the Movies,” because the two-hour broadcast contained some seriously cinematic plot twists.

A couple that earned its first pair of 10s just last Monday was knocked back down into seven-and-eight territory. Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli were both compelled to take their “six” paddles (!) out of storage for one particularly bad routine. And, after reigning for the past two weeks as the duo to beat, Jordan and Lindsay were bested in the scoring department by another couple.

A “Babysitter” McG Tries With

Ah, the Halloween season. The weather’s cooling down, the sun’s setting earlier, the leaves are browning and pumpkins are being carved for decoration and pies. It also means you’re sure to find a couple of new scary movies trying to make their genre marks while holding their own against the classics. And while Hollywood is currently focused on the horror of lascivious producers, Netflix and director McG are focused on getting their fantastical little yarn called The Babysitter out to thrill and make you laugh. The success rate of that, unfortunately, isn’t what it should be.

From the onset, preteen protagonist Cole (“Demolition”’s Judah Lewis) is a checklist of every movie nerd stereotype turned up to 12: terrified of Everything (even his own shadow would be afraid of its shadow), dresses like an outdated 1990s computer programmer, bullied by the older kids and has one

'Scandal' Reveals What Fitz Has Been Up To -- But How Does Olivia React?

'Scandal' Reveals What Fitz Has Been Up To -- But How Does Olivia React?
Thursday's episode of Scandal was all about Fitz -- and that's exactly how we like it!

The ABC drama finally revealed what the former president has been up to since his steamy makeout with Olivia on the White House lawn, and to be honest, it's not that great. 

Fitz learns how to use a debit card, sign up for grocery store rewards, and perfectly bake a chicken in the Scott Foley-directed episode, and while he tries his best to leave his Washington life behind, everywhere he turns he's only reminded of Olivia (as are we, thanks to a casual #Olitz4ever sign, Marcus' mention of an Olitz-decorated house, and a short appearance by Papa Pope -- more on that later).
