Someone in Storybrooke is finding their unhappily ever after next Sunday, so it's time play 'Guess the Corpse!' The Grim Reaper may not be an official fairy tale character, but he's still making his way for Storybrooke... and just in time for the Dec. 11 episode of Once Upon A Time! We've known for a few weeks about the impending vacancy -- the victim's fairy tale counterpart will still be seen in flashbacks -- but with the major killing now less than a week away, we can really start to cook up some wild theories. So who do You think will be saying sayonara to Storybrooke? We already know that said corpse is someone who exists in both Storybrooke and the fairy tale world, so that eliminates Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Henry (Jared Gilmore.) And considering how vital they are to the real-world drama, I think it's also safe to »

After the fall finale of The Secret Circle airs this Thursday (The CW, 9/8c), viewers will be left with a few big cliffhangers to torture them during the break. What might they be?

There are thousands of movies out there that have fantastic concepts, but most are unlucky in that they don't get picked up by a big-name production company, and are thus doomed to make due with their minuscule budget. One such film that is among the lucky is 'Grim Night.' THR reports that Universal Pictures won a bidding war for the film that was brought on by its screenplay and its promotional trailer that made its way online a few days back. You can check it out below. The random disappearances of much of the Earth's population has been done quite a bit in cinematic history, so 'Grim Night' has come up with a twist: rather than simply disappearing, several thousands of people are killed once a year by unknown assailants. It's easy to pick on the promotional trailer as it was probably put together with very little money. The Grim Reaper »

Zombie , the audaciously disgusting spectacle from the late master of gruesome Italian horror Lucio Fulci, was made in 1979 and presented as a semi-sequel to George Romero’s Dawn Of The Dead from the previous year, (Dawn was released in parts of Europe as Zombie – Fulci’s film was known there as Zombie 2) though the films aren’t at all connected. Tisa Farrow and a group of vacationing tourists travel to an island where they find a doctor (Richard Johnson) who is attempting to cure a condition that reanimates the dead. Things quickly get out of control as undead Spanish conquistadors crawl from their graves hungry for human flesh. All this undead mayhem is highlighted by nauseatingly graphic set-pieces by make-up maestro Gianetto de Rossi. Zombie is an incredibly well-made shocker that was enormously popular worldwide and in many ways has aged better than the Romero film (it’s certainly scarier »

Question: Do you have any light to shed on the Glee situation in coming weeks? —Becks
Ausiello: Here’s the sitch: The word around McKinley is that next week’s episode, “Asian F,” is destined to be inducted into the Glee Hall of Fame, right alongside such celebrated installments as Season 1′s “Wheels” and Season 2′s “Grilled Cheesus.” The Ian Brennan-penned hour centers on the long-simmering rivalry between Rachel and Mercedes (they »

Bring on the cannibalism! A title not so simply called Antropophagus made its way to the “Video Nasty” list in the UK. In horror fans language, the video nasty list means it should be watched! This movie had controversy at the time due to how realistic the gore looks. It was released in the U.S. in 1981 under the Monterey Video title “The Grim Reaper”, though heavily edited. This movie has numerous alternate titles half of which make no sense. This movie is also known as “Zombie 6: The Grim Reaper”, which is misleading as this is not a zombie movie. Even the title “The Grim Reaper” makes no sense as the killer doesn’t take souls. If you can find the Monterey Video release, grab it fast as it is rare! If you can find this movie uncut, you are game!

In the past two Gop presidential primary of debates, the specter of death has cast an eerie shadow over the proceedings. But while most mortals live in fear of the "angel of death," that wasn't the case with recent Gop debate proceedings that saw enthusiastic and spontaneous applause for record executions and (hypothetically) letting an uninsured coma patient die. Stephen Colbert bravely stated what a lot of us were already thinking: regardless of who wins the primary, the next Gop running mate should be The Grim Reaper. »

With the ever increasing number of provocative movies such as the up and coming 3-D Sex And Zen: Extreme Ecstasy or Tom Six’s Human Centipede sequel looking to push the boundaries of human taste and decency, we here at Thn have decided to take a look at the stand-out movies that really got us this far and did they really deserve the notoriety they received. Growing up with my love of films and hearing about certain titles I was not allowed or unable to see because of the BBFC’s banned list of video nasties only made me more intrigued to see what I was missing out on.
Its only human nature to be intrigued as to why we are not allowed to view such entertainment which only prompts people to seek them out even more, a fact someone should have told Mary Whitehouse about before her crusading journey began in the early eighties. »

Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey celebrates its 20th birthday. Seb looks back at the film that made the Grim Reaper play Twister...
The Grim Reaper. Evil robot duplicates from the future. The Easter bunny. A seven-foot tall gestalt-entity scientist from Mars. The late George Carlin in a zip-up Pam Grier costume. Good robot duplicates assembled from vacuum cleaner parts. “Sir James Martin of Faith No More”. And, of course, killing off the lead characters by the close of the first act.
No, Bill And Ted’s Bogus Journey isn’t your typical big-budget follow-up to a good-natured sleeper blockbuster hit about time-travelling high-school metalhead slackers. And it’s all the richer for it.
In following up 1989’s Excellent Adventure, writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon eschewed the obvious route of sending their heroes off for yet more time-travel shenanigans – instead plucking all manner of weirdness from their collective imaginations in sending »
It’s got screaming skulls, pointy things and flying bits of concrete. It’s the final poster for Final Destination 5...
Once a clever and refreshing twist on the old slasher subgenre, the Final Destination series has itself gradually become an established part of the horror landscape.
By now, we all know broadly what to expect from the format: a bunch of teenagers sidestep some sort of disaster following a well-timed premonition. The grim reaper, understandably enraged at the teens' skilful death avoidance, begins to despatch them all in gruesomely inventive ways.
We've already had a plane crash, a motorway pileup, a malfunctioning rollercoaster, and a collapsing grandstand at a racing circuit. Final Destination 5, apparently influenced by the weird Richard Gere thriller, The Mothman Prophecies, will feature a collapsing suspension bridge.
With the movie out on the 26th August, Final Destination 5's marketing wizards have put out a new poster, »

The grim reaper’s axe fell heavily on Thursday’s Vampire Diaries. As Klaus’ sacrifice finally went down — Spoiler Alert — four characters bit the dust: Elena and Jeremy’s only remaining “parents,” Jenna and John, feisty werewolf Jules, and the witch we hardly knew, Greta.
Last month, executive producer Julie Plec promised that there would be “some severe and tragic consequences” as a result of the sacrifice, which called for a vampire, a werewolf, the doppelganger, and a witch to perform the act. “The loss of life will be extreme over the last couple of episodes,” she added.

The Grim Reaper (Italian: La commare secca), 1962.
Directed by Bernardo Bertolucci.
When a prostitute is brutally murdered in a park near the Tiber River in Rome, the police track down all visitors to the park that night in the hope of catching the killer, with each suspect giving their own account...
Sometimes, just sometimes, films resemble books very closely. No, not The Phantom Menace novelisation. More like those taut, briskly paced thrillers that keep you turning pages well into the small hours; those madcap comedies that make you laugh so hard and so often you feel your face is about to break in half. Not so common are the short stories; the films that break up into little segments, looking long and hard into brief periods of time. Tarantino is quite fond of this structure – look at Pulp Fiction or Inglourious Basterds. »

The 22-year-old Bertolucci made an impressive debut in 1962 with The Grim Reaper, a Rashomon-style thriller about the murder of a prostitute scripted by his mentor, Pier Paolo Pasolini. But it was his second film, Before the Revolution (1964), now rereleased to accompany a well-deserved retrospective at London's BFI Southbank, that made his name. Semi-autobiographical, partly inspired by Stendhal's The Charterhouse of Parma, and set in 1962 in his native Parma, the film is deeply indebted to the French new wave and centres on Fabrizio, a 20-year-old introspective haut bourgeois student both attracted to and repelled by middle-class conformity and revolutionary Marxism. He has an incestuous affair with his attractive young aunt (a recurrent theme in Bertolucci's work), and it is altogether a dazzling film, both continually vital and something of a time capsule. I think, however, that his best movies are The Conformist, The Spider's Stratagem, the first part of 1900, and, »
