You Should Sit Down Before Looking at the Harry Potter Studio Tour's Halloween Decor

24 minutes ago

Of all the items on diehard Harry Potter fans' bucket lists, getting the chance to walk through London's Harry Potter Studio Tour is up there next to drinking butterbeer Irl and joining Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe's group chat. Although the latter is likely impossible, it's easy to score tickets to the magical tour (if you can afford a ticket across the pond, that is). If it's something that you're in the process of planning, we have just one recommendation for you: go in October or November. The brilliant minds behind the studio tour's decorations have incorporated a "Dark Arts"-theme in honor of Halloween, lasting between Oct. 1 to Nov. 12. In addition to spectacularly creepy appearances from masked Death Eaters (who lurk around nearly every corner of the tour's eerie Forbidden Forest section, and will give you at least 50 heart attacks), there are also over 100 floating pumpkins hovering in the iconic Great Hall set. »

Read This If You've Ever Wondered If Chrissy Metz Is Really Singing on This Is Us

54 minutes ago

In the second season of This Is Us, Kate Pearson decides to pursue a singing career, something her mom, Rebecca, always wanted to do and never really got a chance to explore. After an unsuccessful audition in the season premiere where Kate is told she has a lot of work to do to make it as a singer, she gets a phone call in episode two to sit in with a house band after the lead singer falls ill and lets loose with a beautiful rendition of Stevie Nicks's famous tune "Landslide." So now Kate is on her way to living out one of her dreams. While Kate's mom is played by real-life singer and former pop star Mandy Moore, fans have been wondering if it's in fact Chrissy Metz singing as Kate. The answer is definitely yes.

Once Upon a Time: If This Theory Is True, Henry's Family Tree Is About to Get Very Complicated

1 hour ago

Once Upon a Time really threw us for a loop during season seven's episode "A Pirate's Life." Not only does it reveal that Hook and Emma are expecting a baby, but it also reveals that the Hook from Hyperion Heights isn't exactly who we thought he was. He's actually the Hook we met in the Wish Realm last season! After Henry enlists help from his mom and stepdad in the Enchanted Forest flashback, the heroic trio is met with some difficulties when the gray-headed, drunken Hook teams up with Lady Tremaine. With a magic potion, he is made to look like the Hook we all know and love in an effort to win the affection of Emma.

The Real-Life People and Stories That Inspired Mindhunter's 3 Core Characters

1 hour ago

Mindhunter, Netflix's latest original series, is an unsettling, simmering foray into the grisly world of serial killer psychology. Executive producer David Fincher's fingerprints are all over the show, which shares the same gloomy color palate and stylized dialogue seen in House of Cards, The Social Network, and Gone Girl. The crime drama's three main characters, however - Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff), Bill Tench (Holt McCallany), and Dr. Wendy Carr (Anna Torv) - are plucked straight out of real life. Mindhunter itself is based on the 1995 book by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker called Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit (which also inspired characters in the films The Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon). Although the show's core characters aren't exact replicas of their real-world inspirations, they're pretty damn close. »

How Grey's Anatomy Is Setting Up a Dangerous Situation For Jo and Alex

1 hour ago

We're only a couple of weeks into the new season of Grey's Anatomy, but we're already getting a sense of the season's biggest storylines. There are the things we know, like we're meeting a new crop of interns and things aren't looking good for Meredith and Riggs. We have other suspicions, too, especially about Meredith's Alzheimer's and the potential for a "DeMelia" romance. Then there's the much darker plot lurking in the shadows: Jo's abusive husband. In season 13, as you might recall, Alex actually tracks down Jo's husband, Paul (played by Matthew Morrison). Alex fantasizes about bashing his brains in, but at the end of the day, he just introduces himself and engages in a little small talk. He even admits this to Jo. Now, in season 14, it's clear her husband is top of mind. What used to be Jo's dark secret is bubbling over; she tells Ben about her »

The Poltergeist Curse: Here's the Real Story Behind the Movie Myth

1 hour ago

It's the spookiest month of the year, and you know what that means! It's time to figure out whether you believe in curses or simply unfortunate coincidences. A reboot of the classic 1982 horror film Poltergeist came out in 2015, but let's be honest: nothing could compare to the original. While no horrific accidents occurred on the set of the new film (that we know of, anyway), the release reminded us of the rumors of a curse on the original film trilogy's cast. The movie revolves around a suburban family who move into a new home and begin to notice strange things surrounding their young daughter. Take a look below to find out about the mysterious events that have made people speculate that Poltergeist may be the most cursed franchise in Hollywood.

This Viral True-Crime Podcast Will Make You Seriously Question Your Significant Other

2 hours ago

In the wake of podcast hits like Serial and S-Town, a new true-crime podcast from the Los Angeles Times has transfixed listeners. Hosted by reporter Christopher Goffard, Dirty John tells the story of Debra Newell's nightmarish relationship with John Meehan as well as their relationship's effect on her family. Without giving too much away, it's clear from the first episode that the podcast's titular character is not who he says he is. Newell, a wealthy 59-year-old interior designer, began seeing Meehan, a 55-year-old anesthesiologist, after they connected on a dating site. After their first date, Meehan texted Newell saying he would be "the best thing that will ever happen" to her.

Good News, Mindhunter Fans - There Are More Serial Killer Confessions on the Way

2 hours ago

In case you haven't heard the good news, a second season of Mindhunter, Netflix's dark and gloomy (but fascinating) FBI thriller based on a true story, is officially in the works. In fact, Netflix had so much faith in the series that it renewed it for season two before season one even premiered on Friday, Oct. 13. The first season follows FBI agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) on their mission to interview convicted serial killers like Ed Kemper and Monte Rissell to learn more about what makes them tick. Executive producer David Fincher is clearly wasting no time in preparing season two for your next Netflix binge - he already has a real-life crime lined up to explore in future episodes: the infamous Atlanta child murders.

American Horror Story Hid a Sneaky Cult Easter Egg in Roanoke - Did You Catch It?

2 hours ago

If there's one thing you should know about American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy, it's that the man loves to drop a hint. In fact, pretty much every season of American Horror Story comes with secret hints about the theme for the subsequent season. Perhaps the most notorious among these is Freak Show's top hat clue, which infamously gave away both the theme of season five (Hotel) and the star (Lady Gaga). Now that we're quite deep into season seven, Cult, we should be able to look back and see glimmers of it in season six, Roanoke. As luck would have it, Reddit user jonygritte has already pulled out a pretty cool Easter egg. You might remember that Roanoke features the crazed Dr. Elias Cunningham (Denis O'Hare), who eventually goes mad while staying on the property. One of his rambling videos, as jonygritte notes, actually gives a nod to the Manson family cult. »

This Halloweentown Reunion Is Bringing Us Joy, Probably Infuriating Kalabar

3 hours ago

The beloved Cromwell crew from Disney's Halloweentown is back together again. Nearly two decades since the movie's release, the cast reunited for the annual Spirit of Halloweentown event in St. Helen, Or, where the first movie was shot. At the festive event, Kimberly J. Brown (who played Marnie) was joined by her onscreen family: Judith Hoag (Gwen), J. Paul Zimmerman (Dylan), and Emily Roeske (Sophie). Sadly, the magical Cromwell family was missing its matriarch, famously portrayed by the late, great Debbie Reynolds. In her Instagram picture in front of the town's oversize pumpkin, Brown was clearly feeling the nostalgia. "What an amazing weekend!" she captioned the cute shot. "Thank you so much to everyone who came to @spiritofhalloweentown! Truly so honored that everyone loves to relive Halloweentown back where it all began❤️ »

What Will Maggie Name Her Baby on The Walking Dead? We've Got Ideas

4 hours ago

Babies have always been in short supply on The Walking Dead - which, let's be honest, is a bit of a mercy considering what's become of some of the children who've crossed paths with Rick Grimes and company throughout the seasons (Rip Sophia/Penny/Duane/Meg/Lizzie/Mika/Sam/gas station girl). However, Maggie's about to hear the pitter-patter of more than just zombie feet in the coming months since she's still expecting her bundle with Glenn. With baby Judith, the show has stuck to the comics for her name choice, and if Maggie goes the written route as well, Baby Greene will become (Spoiler Alert: a graphic novel spoiler follows) a boy called Herschel as a tribute to her fallen father. That'd be all well and good, but on the off-chance this is another of those times when The Walking Dead veers from its source material, we started cooking »

The Influential Trailblazer Who Inspired Mindhunter's Dr. Wendy Carr

4 hours ago

Though Mindhunter at times seems like a fictitious and twisted nightmare, the new Netflix series is very much rooted in reality. Though it's been widely reported that the straight-laced protagonist Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) is based on real-life FBI agent John E. Douglas, another pivotal character was inspired by a living legend and trailblazer in her field. According to Screenrant, the character of Dr. Wendy Carr (played by Fringe star Anna Torv) is based on Dr. Ann Wolbert Burgess, a pioneer in the treatment of trauma and abuse victims. In the 1970s, she cofounded one of the first-ever hospital-based counseling programs for rape victims at Boston City Hospital with sociologist Lynda Lytle Holmstrom. The two created the phrase "rape trauma syndrome," which is still used to describe the psychological trauma a victim experiences after having been raped.

The First Song From the Stranger Things Season 2 Soundtrack Is Here, and It's Eerie Af

4 hours ago

Consider your Halloween party lucky, because the Stranger Things season two soundtrack is dropping just in time to creep out all of your guests. Like the show's highly anticipated new episodes, the album won't hit iTunes until the end of October (on Oct. 20, to be exact, seven days before the season two premiere). We just got our first preview of what the 34-track compilation will include, and it's just as eerie as you'd expect: The song, titled "Walkin' in Hawkins," is the first song on the soundtrack and has the same kind of atmospheric synth feel that the Stranger Things theme song does. If you're interested in speculating at what the rest of the song names on the soundtrack might mean, have at it: 1. "Walkin' in Hawkins" 2. "Home" 3. "Eulogy" 4. "On the Bus" 5. "Presumptuous" 6. "Eight Fifteen" 7. "The First Lie" 8. "Scars" 9. "I Can Save Them" 10. "Descent Into the Rift" 11. "Chicago" 12. "Looking for »

The Walking Dead: Rick Grimes's Most Inspirational Speeches Ever

4 hours ago

Rick Grimes has lost more than his fair share of marbles over the years on The Walking Dead, but there's one thing that's remained consistent about his leadership: the man gives good speech. In the promos for season eight, we get to hear a sample of the crowd-rousing that's about to commence, as he steels the survivors with phrases like, "That bigger world is ours by right" and "With everything we've beaten, everything we've endured, everything we've risen above, everything we've become, no matter what comes next, we've won. We've already won." Don't you get chills just reading those words? Rick is unquestionably good at his job, and it's obvious he knows how to key up his people. With a sure-to-be-epic battle between the Alexandrian allies and the Savior squad nigh, there's bound to be plenty more word-slinging where that came from. In the meantime, let's take a look back »

All the Gritty Facts For Season 8 of The Walking Dead

5 hours ago

Before the seventh season of The Walking Dead was even halfway over, AMC renewed the show for season eight. This means we've got plenty of apocalyptic zombie horror to look forward to, all the way through mid-2018. So if you were feeling bored by the most recent season's single-storyline pacing or find yourself looking far, far ahead to a time when Glenn's tragic, graphic death is a distant memory, season eight is the place to go. Let's go over what we know so far. The Season Will Kick Off With the Show's 100th Episode Typically, it's a huge deal when any TV show hits this triple-digit benchmark. It must be especially true for Twd, seeing as pretty much every season has been only 16 episodes in length. Considering this accomplishment is also a season premiere, chances are the show could pull out all the stops in a way they might never have before. »

This Blade Runner 2049 Theory Will Convince You That a Sequel Is Coming

6 hours ago

The following contains serious spoilers for Blade Runner 2049. While the ending of Blade Runner 2049 doesn't look good for Officer K (Ryan Gosling), his story might not be over . . . at least, not if this theory proves true. Much of the film's focus is on the miracle of life - specifically, the fact that it is possible for artificial replicants to conceive a child. But while the main revelation of the movie revolves around Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) fathering a daughter shortly after the original film concludes, it's possible that the audience also witnesses a new miracle without even realizing it. What if, over the course of the film, another replicant child is conceived? Image Source: WWE As viewers learn, Deckard and Rachael are the only replicants in their world's history to successfully procreate, and it puts them in immense danger. It is declared "a miracle" on several occasions and »

X-Men: The New Mutants Is Going to Be a Trilogy, and All 3 Movies Will Be Terrifying

8 hours ago

With its newest film, the X-Men franchise plans on going in a much darker direction. Like, much, much darker. The first trailer for The New Mutants recently dropped, and its overt horror genre vibes definitely gave some longtime fans of the series a shock. Like Logan, it looks like the new installment into the X-Men universe is making a big tonal shift, and if we're being honest, we're totally on board. The film doesn't premiere until next Spring, but apparently a New Mutants trilogy is already in the works. Here's everything we know about it so far!

Happy Death Day Is the Unexpectedly Great Horror Movie You Should Go See Tonight

9 hours ago

Let's get something out of the way right now: yes, Happy Death Day is like a mix between Groundhog Day and Scream. You know what, though? It works. Somehow it really, really works. While walking into the theater to watch the new slasher, which comes from Blumhouse Productions and the minds behind the Paranormal Activity franchise, I definitely wasn't expecting to be blown away. To be fair, I wasn't. But Happy Death Day, despite its mind-numbingly bad title (couldn't they just have left it at Death Day?), is a solidly entertaining entry into the horror-thriller genre. If you're looking for something scary to watch this October (especially with Friday the 13th weekend and Halloween happening), this movie is worth the $15 ticket. Here's why: The Premise Is Not as Annoying as It Sounds Like I mentioned above, Happy Death Day ripped off the "person relives the same day over and over »
