Stephen King Was Seriously Creeped Out by Netflix's 1922
Netflix's 1922 is an adaptation of Stephen King's short novella of the same name from the Full Dark, No Stars collection and the legendary author is claiming that the rough cut that he saw of the movie is "super creepy" and that it "won't leave his mind."

Don't Call it a Controversy: How 13 Reasons Why Prepared for the Suicide Debate

Don't Call it a Controversy: How 13 Reasons Why Prepared for the Suicide Debate
The people behind 13 Reasons Why knew exactly what they were doing when they depicted Hannah's suicide in the final episode of the first season. The scene in questions has Katherine Langford's Hannah slit her wrists in her bathtub, later found by her parents played by Kate Walsh and Brian D'Arcy James. The depiction has sparked some controversy—or a debate if you ask the people involved with the show. "You always want to make a show that connects and I think we knew we were making a show we felt we were onto something with the show we were creating," director and executive producer Tom McCarthy told E! News at 13 Reasons Why's Netflix FYSee event. "You can never anticipate a response,...

In Praise of the Unflinchingly Honest Approach to Teen Suicide on 13 Reasons Why

Trigger Warning: Discussions of suicide and depression below. There are also spoilers for 13 Reasons Why throughout. There's a good chance Hannah Baker is just like you. At the very least, Hannah Baker is just like someone you know; she's smart, she has a bright future ahead of herself, she has loving parents, she just wants to be liked. Maybe that's what makes the fact that Hannah Baker slices her wrists open and bleeds to death in 13 Reasons Why so difficult to swallow. Netflix's 13-episode drama, an adaptation of Jay Asher's best-selling 2007 Ya novel, follows quiet high school student Clay Jensen (Dylan Minnette) after he receives a box of 13 cassette tapes from Hannah (Katherine Langford), his classmate and crush who killed herself a few weeks earlier. "Hi, this is Hannah," she announces on the first tape. "Settle in, because I'm about to tell you the story of my life. More specifically,

13 Surprising Connections Between the Cast of 13 Reasons Why

Image Source: Netflix The cast of 13 Reasons Why may be young, but their résumés are long. While a few stars (like Katherine Langford) are just getting into the business, many of the members of the ensemble cast have been in Hollywood for years, and they've even starred in projects together before! I started digging into their past roles, and found 13 - that wasn't planned, I swear - interesting connections. Note: I'm not including the fact that they've almost all been on some iteration of Law & Order, because you could throw a pebble out the window and hit someone who's been on Law & Order. Image Source: ABC Grey's Anatomy: Kate Walsh, Dylan Minnette, Mark Pellegrino, Wilson Cruz, and Ajiona Alexus were all on Grey's Anatomy. Walsh was a recurring character, while the others turned up as guest stars. Minnette memorably played a boy with no ears. Private Practice: Walsh's character,
