Following a vicious storm, a small town is enveloped in a mysterious mist leaving a band of survivors to seek refuge in a supermarket. Trapped in the market by monstrous creatures lurking in the mist, the group also has to contend with the growing distrust and delirium of each other that soon proves to be a bigger threat than the monsters outside.
Frank Darabont is arguably the best director when it comes to bringing the work of Stephen King to the big screen, giving us the excellent weepie that is The Green Mile and arguably one of the greatest films ever made in the form of The Shawshank Redemption.
However, Darabont wouldn’t merely confine himself to bringing King’s non-horror works to the screen, using

Jim is delivering a car from Chicago to San Diego when he stops to pick up a hitchhiker named John Ryder who quickly reveals himself as a serial killer who kills anyone foolish enough to pick him up. Narrowly escaping from Ryder’s clutches, Jim soon finds himself being pursued across the desert road by his new foe – a foe who will not stop until he kills his new prey.
Hitchhikers are a favorite of the horror genre with them either being the unsuspecting victim about to be picked up a passing psychopath or, more often than not, it’s the hitch-hiker who is the psychopath hoping to catch a ride with his latest victim. For me, one of the best examples of this trope comes in the form of Robert Harmon
According to Nielsen data, the Season 2 finale drew in an estimated 1.02 million viewers, airing at 10 p.m. on Showtime. The season premiere averaged 753,000 viewers in its initial airing, meaning this season’s finale improved on the premiere by 35%. It also managed to edge out the Season 1 finale, which drew 1.01 million viewers back in April 2016. Across multiple airings, the Season 2 finale managed 1.32 million viewers for the night. Based on eight weeks of available data, the second season is averaging 4.6 million viewers per episode across multiple platforms.
This season of the critically-acclaimed series picked up shortly after the events of the explosive Season 1 finale. U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) and hedge fund king Bobby “Axe” Axelrod (Damian Lewis) will stop at nothing to settle their personal war. But both men will have to contend with

The territory — big money on Wall Street — felt like it had been well-trodden recently on the big screen too, with the success of “The Wolf Of Wall Street” and “The Big Short.” So all told, it felt like it was destined to be overshadowed by other shows like HBO’s “Vinyl,” which debuted around the same time
Recently released from prison, Byron (Quinton Aaron) has secured a probationary placement at his step-brother’s family farm. Working for widower Beth (Amy Pietz) and her two daughters, Eliza (Gillian Zinser) and Julia (Nicole Scimeca), Byron has something of a rude awakening when he realises just how much work is involved in a farm’s day-to-day operations. His sponsor Josh, a lawyer, isn’t around much, so it’s left to a skeptical and overworked Beth to show him the ropes. Meanwhile, Paulie (Marcus Henderson), Byron’s friend from prison, tempts him with an easier and eminently more appealing alternative.

Mommy and Santa, were getting on grand.
This threw little Harry, into such a tizzy
He grew up demented; delusional, dizzy.
He spied on the children, through windows he peered
To check if they’re nice, or if they be jeered.
He kept a big book, with names he did fill
Those who did or did not, follow St. Nick’s will.
His job at the toy plant, was covered in scorn
Co-workers would trick him, to work until morn.
He tried to be nice, and swallow his hate
But when they pushed Harry, ’twas too little, too late.
In full Santa gear, he took to the road
With presents for children, he had a full load.
His nondescript van, could give some folks pause
A sleigh painted on the side, a pedophile Claus. (Relax! He wasn’t.)
But though he was decent,

Starring Brandon Maggart, Jeffrey DeMunn, Dianne Hull and Andy Fenwick.
After being mentally scarred by the realisation that Santa Claus doesn’t exist, toy factory worker Harry strives to take on the role of St Nicholas himself keeping an eye on the local neighbourhood children and noting who is naughty and nice. After having had enough of his co-workers’ belittlement and exploitation of him, Harry suffers a mental breakdown and eventually coming to believe that he really is Santa Claus, he embarks on a campaign of gift giving for the nice and brutal punishment for the naughty.

Sarah Wayne Callies chats to us about The Other Side Of The Door and The Walking Dead...
When I first spoke to Sarah Wayne Callies in 2014 for the release of the joyous disaster movie delights of Into The Storm, it took a while to adjust to the completely different persona she exudes in real life, compared to the often quiet and maternal characters she’s played over the years. Filled with a blunt and refreshing honesty, she’ll happily share experiences – good and bad, while punctuating the air with an occasional swear word, making her an incredibly easy person to talk to.
We caught up with her, complete with cold, to discuss her latest role in The Other Side Of The Door, a horror movie that is as much a tragic family drama, as it is a grisly ghost story. Directed by Brit Johannes Roberts, the story
Press Release: Miami – Dec. 17, 2015 – NBC Universo, the modern entertainment and sports cable channel for Latinos, announced today the network will premiere the Spanish-language debut of “The Walking Dead” on Wed., Jan. 20, at 10 p.m. Et/Pt. Subsequent airings of new episodes dubbed into Spanish will air weekly on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. Et/Pt.
“The Walking Dead” tells the story of the months and years that follow after a zombie apocalypse. Following a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, the series explores the challenges of life in a world overrun by “walkers” or zombies. Over time, the characters are changed by the constant exposure to death and willingness to do anything to survive. The
So please note that this is by no means a comprehensive list – for those so inclined, by all means, get excited for Legends of Tomorrow, American Crime Story, The Magicians, Lucifer, and, sure, why not, Fuller House. The list below are just a few that seemed, for one reason or another, to be especially noteworthy. (In at least one instance, “noteworthy” is not necessarily a compliment.
The site reports that, early on in The Walking Dead's development, Frank Darabont had been eyeing Thomas Jane to play Rick Grimes, when the series creator had been trying to sell the show to HBO. Eventually, HBO passed on the project, and then Thomas Jane became attached to star in HBO's Hung,
Coming off the success of the recently renewed Scream TV series on MTV, Dimension Television announced today that they are resurrecting The Mist in a similar fashion. The project, which has Stephen King's blessing, is a continuing series from acclaimed writer Christian Torpe. Christian Torpe created the successful show Rita in Denmark, which is now finishing its fourth season. Christian Torpe has also been developed programming for both Showtime and AMC.
Using the book and movie as influences, The Mist series tells an original story about a
A familiar yet generally charming vehicle that impressively utilizes a pair of actors known mostly from a mainstream comedic realm, Adult Beginners is a low-key dramedy assembled from unpredictable voices. Premiering at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival before making its Us bow at SXSW earlier in 2015, it serves as producer Ross Katz’s feature debut (previously he directed the 2009 television drama Taking Chance, starring Kevin Bacon), with Nick Kroll credited with the story, and a screenplay penned by Liz Flahive (“Nurse Jackie”) and Jeff Cox (Blades of Glory, 2007). Neither as broadly comedic or serious minded as the credits would seem to indicate, the title serves as an estranged sibling reunion film that plays like the lighter, rosy faced cousin of last year’s The Skeleton Twins. Produced by the increasingly philanthropic Duplass Bros., the film displays the sort of vibrant charm
