Mom of 5 on Life Support After Refusing Cancer Treatment to Save Unborn Child: ‘This Is What She Wants’ Husband Says
Pregnant and terminally ill, Carrie DeKlyen never feared death — but she was terrified of losing her baby.

Now, the Michigan mother of five who was diagnosed with glioblastoma — an aggressive, rapidly growing malignant tumor that can affect the brain and spinal cord — lies in a “vegetative state” in a Michigan hospital, inching toward death so her unborn child can have a chance at life.

Carrie enrolled in a clinical trial at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor after her diagnosis in April, where doctors informed her that she was pregnant and would need to “terminate her pregnancy,” to receive treatment,

Sky Invests in Production Companies True North, Chrysalis Vision

European pay-tv operator Sky has taken stakes in two British production companies, acquiring a majority stake in reality-show producer True North and also investing in drama specialist Chrysalis Vision.

How The First Extensive Face Transplant Helped a Burn Victim Reclaim His Life: ‘Now I’m Just a Normal Guy — There’s No Staring’

How The First Extensive Face Transplant Helped a Burn Victim Reclaim His Life: ‘Now I’m Just a Normal Guy — There’s No Staring’
Last fall, for the first time in 14 years, Patrick Hardison was just another face in the crowd.

“The day I got out of the hospital, I needed a few things, so I went to Macy’s,” Hardison, 42, tells People exclusively. “I could tell the difference right then. Nobody was staring, nobody was saying anything. I was just there.”

It may sound like an everyday errand run, but for Hardison, that shopping trip in October 2015 was the moment he began to reclaim his life. Having lived with a disfigured visage since he suffered severe burns in a 2001 accident, the volunteer firefighter

‘Phantasm’ Lives! Why This Genre-Bending Franchise Stands the Test of Time

‘Phantasm’ Lives! Why This Genre-Bending Franchise Stands the Test of Time
In 1979, Don Coscarelli was 23 years old when he made a haunting, off-beat tale of two brothers facing off against an inter-dimensional threat known as The Tall Man, who Angus Scrimm (Coscarelli’s best friend) played with psychopathic intensity. “Phantasm” became a cult phenomenon, spawning four sequels; the purported finale, “Phantasm: Ravager” (Well Go USA), opens this week. But Scrimm’s no longer around to help promote it, and Coscarelli’s left on his own to contemplate a rocky career.

Whether or not it’s truly the last, “Ravager” does mark Scrimm’s final performance. The actor died in January at the age of 89, not long after production wrapped. When “Phantasm: Ravager” premiered at Fantastic Fest in Austin, alongside a new 4k restoration of the original film (aided by Jj Abrams’ production studio, Bad Robot), the screenings had the air of a wake.

'Game of Thrones' Recap: Jon Snow Watch Ends, Stark Watch Begins

And now his watch has ended. Rip, Shaggydog.

In "Game of Thrones" Season 6, Episode 3, "Oathbreaker," Jon Snow quit the post he took an oath to keep for life, saying his watch as Lord Commander had ended. Because Jon Snow is dead. So who is he now? It's a loaded question. It's a very important question. And it's a question that only just started to be addressed in this big bad tease of an episode.

Jon kept the job just long enough to see the people who stabbed him to death be hanged to death, with little hope of being resurrected. (Pause for an unpopular opinion: Olly was a traitor for helping to kill Jon, but the wildlings killed his entire family and it's understandable that he felt betrayed by Jon supporting them. Olly, I get you. Everyone else can go ahead and get mad.)

Omg, Is Homeland Going to Kill Carrie?!

Omg, Is Homeland Going to Kill Carrie?!
Please tell us Quinn got the code wrong. Please. We're only two weeks into the fifth season of Homeland, and there has already been a hit put out on poor Carrie Mathison. Things had finally become relatively stable for Carrie (Claire Danes): A new life with baby Frannie in Germany, a job in the private sector, and a hunky German boyfriend. We weren't foolish to believe it would last for too long. But Saul (Mandy Patinkin) making her the next target on Quinn's (Rupert Friend) hit list? That we never saw coming. But there it was in tonight's final moments: Quinn's shaky handwriting spelling out M-a-t-h-i-s-o before what he was actually writing finally sunk in. Yep, someone at the CIA wants...

The Valiant Ends and why Valiant is Comic Book Life – Now

The Valiant #4 came out this week from Valiant comics and it’s about beginning and endings, life and death, mortality and eternity. Not of the miniseries, nor a story arc, but for the Valiant universe. Even more, it felt like a message written to me, a long time fan, within this completely mainstreet hyper-dramatic action horror thriller. It was a countdown to a valiant zero hour. For the line and me.

The Eternal Warrior has been kind of a mess. Beyond a pretty cool Eternal Emperor promo and a hit the pavement frenetic intro by Van Lente and Emanuela Lupacchino in the pages of Archer & Armstrong not much going on with Gilad had moved beyond this cycle of monotony of duty he was experiencing, which the reader had not trouble understanding because we were tired of it after a year ourselves, nevermind the centuries Gilad had lived it.

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #52. Philippe Grandrieux’s Malgré la nuit

Malgré la nuit

Director: Philippe Grandrieux // Writer: Philippe Grandrieux

French provocateur Philippe Grandrieux may not be an auteur to everyone’s liking, but since debuting with 1998’s visceral Somber, his cinema has always been a point of contention, and he’s since cultivated a growing cult following that includes names like Marilyn Manson. His most infamous work is the Anna Mougalalis headlined A New Life (2002), which is difficult to find copies of. Since then, titles like 2008’s Un Lac (which is available streaming via boutique site Vyer Films) and 2012’s White Epilepsy have waned in peripheral conversations following their limited festival play. But we are excited to see that Grandrieux wrapped a new project in November, Malgré la nuit (Despite the Night), which should receive a more renowned reception as it’s headlined by Ariane Labed, one of the prominent faces from the Greek Weird Wave (Attenberg; Alps), and one

Family Drama Goodbye to All That Strikes One Note

Family Drama Goodbye to All That Strikes One Note
From the first moments of Goodbye to All That, when Otto Wall (Paul Schneider) is jogging past vibrant autumn foliage to the strains of a Haydn piano concerto, Angus MacLachlan's directorial debut feels like a 1980s Alan Alda dramedy (The Four Seasons, A New Life). Otto is a comfortably oblivious white-collar suburban dad who's unaware that tween daughter Edie (Audrey Scott) worries about his safety — or that his wife, Annie (Melanie Lynskey), is filing divorce papers. "Why do these things always happen to Daddy?" Edie asks after an Atv accident hobbles the marathon runner. "He doesn't pay attention," answers the weary Annie, and that's as insightful as MacLachlan's script gets. Otto's inattention is manifested in clumsiness and bad luck. Oth...
