Paul Reiser on Reviving ‘Mad About You’: ‘There’s Still Comedy To Be Mined’
For many years, Paul Reiser refused to even entertain the notion of revisiting his 1990s sitcom “Mad About You.” But clearly, he has come around: TVLine reported on Tuesday that Sony Pictures TV is developing a revival of the romantic comedy.

Mad About You” was part of NBC’s successful “Must See TV” stable of sitcoms and ran for seven seasons, from 1992 to 1999. The comedy, which Reiser created with Danny Jacobson, starred Reiser and Helen Hunt as Paul and Jamie Buchman, a young couple living in New York. The decision to potentially revive “Mad About You” comes following NBC’s successful return of “Will & Grace” and ABC’s impending revisit of “Roseanne.” Other hit reboots have included “The X-Files,” “Full House” and “Gilmore Girls.”

“People were asking about bringing ‘Mad About You,’ and for years I said no, why would you?” Reiser told IndieWire in October. “Literally for 18 years I was adamant,

Halloween 2016: 31 Movies to Stream on Netflix this October to Get You into the Spirit of the Season

  • DailyDead
One of my favorite things to do every October is to binge-watch as many horror and sci-fi movies as possible (something I can guarantee I’m not alone in doing), and for those of you with Netflix, the streaming service can be an invaluable resource this time of year, although I do remember a time when there were a lot more options than we get these days.

That being said, I culled Netflix's entire library and put together 31 great movie choices that will undoubtedly get you into a macabre mood to celebrate Halloween this year. Take a look at our Netflix list below, featuring one film for each day of October, and get ready to enjoy an entire month’s worth of fright-filled fun, courtesy of Netflix’s streaming database.

RuPaul's Drag Race recap: season seven, episode nine - Divine Inspiration

Filth master John Waters provided the inspiration for the queens this week as the all-singing, all-dancing season seven rolls on

Hello Baltimore (and John Waters)! Not only was the library open tonight, but it was filled with filth, as legendary director Waters graciously allowed the queens to perform skits inspired by the Queen, Divine.

Team Cha-Cha Heels (Kennedy Davenport and Katya) squared off against Team Eggs (Ginger Minj and Trixie Mattel), while Team Poo (Miss Fame, Pearl and Violet Chachki) brought up the rear. And the musical theatre numbers played out as every other musical and/or theatre number has this season: Kennedy couldn’t quite remember her lines, Pearl’s performance was flat, Violet was forgettable and Miss Fame couldn’t take direction. Ginger, Katya and Kennedy were, however, fantastic – especially Ginger, who channeled the Edith Massey from Pink Flamingos so well that they showed a split-screen with the two characters to the audience.

Celebrating cinema's 15 less famous killer robots

Never mind The Terminator and Ed-209, what about Eve, Hector or Warbeast? Here's a pick of 15 less famous killer robots from the movies...

"They say Zapp Brannigan single-handedly saved the Octillion system from a horde of rampaging killbots!" enthused Leela in classic the Futurama episode, Love's Labour's Lost In Space.

It was, reflected the alcoholic, cigar-smoking robot Bender, "A grim day for Robotkind", before adding as an afterthought, "Eh, but we can always build more killbots."

Killer robots are a longstanding staple of science fiction cinema, and if we were to compile the list of the best and most celebrated, it would probably read pretty much like everyone else's - The Terminator, 2001: A Space Odyssey and the Sentinels from X-Men: Days Of Future Past would all get a mention.

But what about the less famous killer robots from film history - the ones that have been largely eclipsed by

Rob G.’s Top 10 Horror Films Of 2014!

Welcome, fellow fiends! Another year come and gone & it was quite a year for independent cinema. Not a single “studio” picture on my list, which isn’t surprising, considering some of the greatest horror films of all time – Halloween, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Blair Witch Project, etc – were all innovative low budget independent efforts. If you’ve listened to the latest episode of Killer Pov, then you’ll already know my picks, but I didn’t want that to deter from my annual tradition here on Icons. So without further adieu, here we go! My top 10 horror picks of 2014!

10 – Cheap Thrills

The definition of what we personally consider “horror” has changed and evolved so drastically over the years. Granted, I’m guilty of constantly claiming certain “fringe” titles are Not horror. But the older I get, true horror to me are the things that people do to each other.

The Taking of Deborah Logan (2014) Review

By Jennica Lynn Johnson

MoreHorror.com

I was about 8 years old the first time I saw the inside of a nursing home. This wasn't a senior apartment complex or an assisted living facility. It was a depressing place with fluorescently lit rooms for sleeping and a television room for visiting. And it was full of people that time forgot and especially people who forgot time.

My step-grandfather had Alzheimer's and for some reason my parents thought bringing a strange little girl to visit him would lift his spirits as if he wasn't confused enough.

I'll never forget the moment when I walked through the doors into the waiting room. An elderly woman who I had never seen before in my life bent down until she met me at eye level, smiled, and said, "I remember you when you were just a baby."

Aside from being just as confused as she was,

Three New Found Footage Films Are Hitting VOD, But Only One and a Half Deliver the Goods

Blah, blah, blah, found footage movies suck. Okay, now that that (far too frequently correct) generalization is out of the way let’s take a look at three new horror titles available this week on VOD. Yes, they’re all found footage films, but there’s a twist… only one of them sucks. Another is mediocre at best, and the third? Well it just might be one of the year’s best horror movies. Hangar 10 follows a trio of friends who head into a British forest to investigate search for gold but get caught up in strange events that appear to echo a UFO sighting there 33 years prior. Exists follows a group of friends who head into an East Texas forest for some deep woods shenanigans but unintentionally piss off Bigfoot along the way. The Taking of Deborah Logan does not involve aliens, Bigfoot or the woods, but it does feature a harrowing look at the pain

Here a trailer and clip from a creepy looking horror film called The Taking of Deborah Logan. I haven't heard of this film until recently, but it's one that I plan on checking out in the near future. It comes from producer Adam Robitel, who wrote and directed the film. He's also the producer of films such as X-Men, and my favorite Halloween horror movie ever, Trick 'r Treat. Here's the synopsis:

Mia Medina (Michelle Ang) has finally found the perfect subject for her PhD thesis film on Alzheimer’s Disease. For the next several months, cameras will record the everyday life of mother Deborah Logan (Jill Larson) and her daughter Sarah (Anne Ramsay). But as the days progress, strange things beginning to happen around Deborah that are not consistent with any findings about Alzheimer’s.
