Just in time for Halloween, Daniel Radcliffe gets some special powers and couple of appendages growing from his temples in Radius’ Horns, which will be this week’s biggest rollout among specialty newcomers. The title received a warm welcome at a Cinema Society event attended by its stars this week in New York. This week’s newbies are dominated by nonfiction fare, though with some exceptions. Kino Lorber is opening French/Swiss maestro Jean-Luc Godard’s Goodbye To Language following a successful festival run. It has been critically acclaimed, and the company is expecting it to be a box office winner too. The 2014 Best Documentary winners from South by Southwest and Tribeca are going head-to-head in their theatrical debuts. Radius’ The Great Invisible (SXSW) opened in limited release Wednesday in an exclusively theatrical rollout, and The Orchard is bowing Point And Shoot (Tribeca) in a single NYC run.

It’s Halloween! Icicles are glistening from window sills. Chestnuts are roasting on open fires. North Pole elves are… hang on, no. None of that nice, fluffy stuff is happening. At Halloween, demonic creatures hunt for flesh, monsters creep out of their graves, and TV does its level best to freak us all the hell out.
In the spirit of all that, we asked our writers to select and share the TV episodes, horror or otherwise, that have made them whimper with fear. Here they all are, 31 of them, because, well, at Halloween, we like things to add up to 31.
Note that this isn’t a Top 10, or a Best Of, nor is it listed in order of scariness. It’s a collection of the particular »
Gotham, Season 1, Episode 6: “Spirit of the Goat”
Written by Ben Edlund
Directed by Tj Scott
Airs Mondays at 8pm Et on Fox
Unlike last week’s “Viper”, this week’s Gotham turns in a case of the week that truly amps up the creep factor without going too far outside of the gritty reality that the show has set up. “Spirit of the Goat” presents an antagonist that not only fits well tonally with the series, but is entertaining, with a somewhat supernatural mystery whose answer falls in line with the noir style. One of the episode’s most pleasant surprises is that it places Harvey Bullock in the lead, allowing him some much needed character depth, as well as highlighting his skills as a great detective in his own right. This episode also provides a significant development in the ongoing Major Crimes Unit investigation of Jim Gordon and »

CSI: Channel 5, 9pm
This Us TV procedural brings its 14th season to a close with a very personal episode for Jim Brass (Paul Guilfoyle), who must make »
This review will be largely thematic, rather than a straightforward recapping of the events, which you can find out by watching the episode anyway (which is really good, and the review contains spoilers, so you might as well first watch it on official catch-up).
Season 2 sees the new Director Coulson's smaller, in-the-process-of-being-reconstructed Shield become underdogs, trying to stop Hydra while simultaneously evading the likes of the ridiculously gung-ho (and newly promoted) Brigadier General Glenn Talbot (Adrian Pasdar). (Seriously, how did he ever make any friends (that's assuming he has any), or get married, or even get promoted at in the first place? He's extremely tenacious, but kind of a jerk, using power to intimidate anyone who might possibly get in his way (or even try to work with him). And his idea of motivating people is to explain to them that he's threatening them less.)
The plot is somewhat reminiscent »

The folks at Fox recently announced they are developing a TV series pilot titled Frankenstein, but based on the show’s synopsis, you shouldn’t expect to see a mob of angry townspeople with pitchforks and blazing torches anytime soon.
Deadline reports that Fox is developing a pilot for Frankenstein, “a grounded sci-fi drama” with Howard Gordon and Rand Ravich executive producing, with the latter also writing the project. Here’s the pilot’s synopsis (via Deadline):
“Frankenstein centers on Adam Tremble, a morally corrupt FBI agent who is given a second chance at life when he is brought back from the dead. Now younger and stronger, Tremble will have to choose between his old temptations and his new sense of purpose — dealing with threats beyond the FBI’s capabilities. All the while navigating the complicated relationship with his “creators”: an antisocial Internet billionaire and his bio-engineer twin sister. »
- Derek Anderson
The last time we saw Frankenstein’s monster on the big screen, he was being played as a ripped, immortal badass named Adam in the mostly awful I, Frankenstein. It wasn’t a good look for the horror icon. Then, this past summer, Showtime’s Penny Dreadful put an interesting spin on the character’s origins, exploring the murky morals of Victor Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway) and his creations. Now, Fox is ramping up for its own Frankenstein series – and it may be one of the most far-out adaptations to still bear the name of Mary Shelley’s classic novel.
Simply titled Frankenstein, and described as “taking inspiration” from Shelley’s work, this new project centers on Adam Tremble, a morally corrupt FBI agent given another chance at a good life after being brought back from the dead by two peculiar individuals – an antisocial Internet billionaire and his bio-engineer twin sister. »

It's always fun when our favorite TV shows give us Halloween themed episodes during this fun and creepy time of year. Some shows offer us real horror, while others use the opportunity to make us laugh. There are certain Halloween episodes that I have enjoyed watching over the years that have stuck with me, and I've put together a list of ten of my favorites that I think are awesome. I didn't include Halloween specials like It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown or Garfield's Halloween Special because those was more specialized, and not really a part of a series. You can go through my picks below, and when you're done, let me know what some of your favorite Halloween episodes are!
The X-Files - "Home"
Technically this isn't a Halloween-themed episode, but it did air in October, and it was one hell of a terrifying hour of television. I mean, »

The 'Modern Family' star tells Et about her past experience with thyroid cancer.
The 2014 Angel Ball was an opportunity for stars and philanthropists to get together and raise money and awareness for cancer research.
Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara looked absolutely stunning on the red carpet outside the gala celebration, and the Colombian star stopped to talk to Et about her own reasons for supporting the event.
"I had thyroid cancer some years ago," the 42-year-old actress revealed. "But it's not only because of that. [Cancer] is such a horrible sickness that we all should help anyways, even if you have never had it."
Video: Sofia Vergara Shares Her Secrets to Looking Your Best at 42
When Vegara was 28 years old, she had to have her thyroid removed and undergo radioactive iodine therapy. According to an interview she did with The New York Times, she now has to take daily doses of medication to battle hypothyroidism.
Absolutely gorgeous! Those are the words most fans will repeat after seeing Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds on their first red carpet together since announcing they were expecting. While attending Gabrielle's Angel Ball in New York City, Lively wore a pale yellow silk Gucci gown that featured a plunging neckline composed of silver crystal embroidery. The long-sleeve dress perfectly showed off the expectant mom's glow and growing baby bump! Not to be outdone, Reynolds looked quite handsome as well as he donned a Gucci tuxedo with a navy silk bow tie and black leather shoes. Is it too early to crown the Best Dressed Couple of 2014? The Angel Ball is a star-studded event that »
Now that it’s finally been released on DVD, we look at the TV shows that built on The Wonder Years’ foundations…
The Wonder Years, famous for being the show that made a generation of kids nostalgic for a decade they’d never even set foot in, finally arrived on DVD this month following the resolution of a years-long music rights tangle. Neal Marlens and Carol Black’s comedy drama ran for six seasons between 1988 and 1993 on ABC, following Fred Savage’s Kevin Arnold through his late-sixties and early-seventies suburban adolescence.
Thematically, stylistically, and tonally, The Wonder Years blazed a trail for television comedy and teen-focused drama that was subsequently traipsed down by numerous shows, from the superlative Freaks And Geeks and My So-Called Life to How I Met Your Mother, Malcolm In The Middle and countless others. Its innovative film-style use of a single-camera, lack of laughter track, fourth-wall breaking, »
Marvel’s Daredevil follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.
With a plethora of Marvel and DC characters coming to life on the big and small screen, there appears to be no sign of things slowing down with this series on the horizon’s and particularly Marvel’s stronghold seemingly taking over the world. This time, thanks to Netflix, Marvel’s first original series on the streaming service is executive produced by series Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, »

Marvel and Netflix have released the first images of Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock and Daredevil and I have to say...they look great. While showrunner Steve DeKnight promised the show would explore the noir side of the Marvel Universe in a modern day Hell’s Kitchen, I wasn't sure if Daredevil would start off wearing the red costume or if they'd slowly build towards it as the show went on. Judging from the first images, DeKnight has definitely been influenced by Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.'s run on the series (Daredevil: Man Without Fear), and it wouldn't surprise me if the storyline borrows liberally from their take. After all, it was a great run, so why not use it. Anyway, we're going to have a lot more on Daredevil later today with Perri's recap of the New York Comic-Con panel. Until then, check out the first images. »

The legendary movie palace The Redford Theatre in Detroit presents a Three Stooges film festival this weekend. Here is the press release:
It’s October and Halloween is only a few weeks away. What better way to start getting ready for that scary holiday than a “Three Stooges Horror Festival”? Join us this weekend for a few frights and loads of hilarity as the Stooges roll through six of their spookiest shorts. “Mummy's Dummies” finds the boys selling used chariots in ancient Egypt (and not quite on the up and up). Soon they find themselves appearing in front of King Rootentootin, (a large and rotund Vernon Dent). Hilarity follows. Strangely, in another one of our features, “We Want Our Mummy”, we find the Stooges back in Egypt several centuries later, looking for the mummy of that same King Rootentootin — who is discovered to be a midget. Go figure. That latter »

Supernatural, Season 10, Episode 1: “Black”
Written by Jeremy Carver
Directed by Robert Singer
Airs Tuesdays at 9pm (Et) on The CW
It was inevitable that Dean would suffer lasting consequences from receiving the Mark of Cain last season, especially once he had killed Abaddon, and thus had no more need for the Mark or the First Blade. However, the ninth season finale’s final reveal that Dean had become a demon, a lifelong fear of his, drove home just how deep those consequences were. The tenth season opener takes a look at how Dean has changed as a result of his death last season, in a compelling episode that sets up a potentially fascinating Angel storyline as well.
The Angel issue raised in the season premiere is a promising storyline. As Hannah points out in this week’s episode, much of the Angels’ storylines have been about gaining control, »
