Today sees the release of David Sandberg’s Lights Out, a deliciously creepy horror film which uses our innate distrust of the dark to great effect. The star of the show is undoubtedly the creepy monster who lurks only in the shadows, and the filmmakers use some genuinely unsettling visual tricks to play havoc with our primal fears.
You can read our review of Lights Out here, we called it ‘a film that is likely to terrify anybody who stumbles across it, with several intense, nail-biting set-pieces that make for truly indelible cinema.’
Part of what makes a great horror movie is a tangible fear of the evil we are presented with. Looking back into the days of cinema past we see a succession of terrifying horror movie monsters on the big screen. Even now we are on the »

And with that, Hairspray Live! is officially over!
After months of preparation, the three-hour live event hit television sets, dazzling audiences with its impressive sets and star-studded cast -- but not every moment shined so brightly.
Here are the best, worst, and weirdest moments of NBC’s live show.
Garrett Clayton’s Solo Mannequin Challenge:
Garrett Clayton makes just as good of a mannequin as he does a Link Larkin. The former Disney star shined throughout the show, but we just can’t forget his amazing poses during “I Can Hear the Bells.” Why wasn’t he better utilized during the cast’s amazing mannequin challenge?!!
Watch: The 'Hairspray Live!' Cast Just Did the Most Epic Mannequin Challenge Ever
Seaweed and Little Sis:
We could not get enough of Ephraim Sykes and Shahadi Wright Joseph, who graciously volunteered their Broadway talents (Sykes starred in Hamilton, while Joseph’s already racked up an impressive »
It takes a special kind of friendship to be able to be brutally honest with one another. And after over 30 years of being BFFs, Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King have definitely reached that special milestone. In fact, Oprah openly gives Gayle her uncensored opinions on her fashion and beauty looks. And the latest Oprah quip might have just started the most epic fight of their friendship.
The CBS This Morning anchor wore a plain, emerald top on Tuesday and accessorized it with a blingy, oversize bib-style necklace — and let’s just say it did its job as being an eye-catching piece. »

I’m sure I’m not the only person to say this, but I’m going to go ahead and say it anyway; Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was a very special title for me as it is the game that got me into online multiplayer shooters. Cherished by many, Infinity Ward’s critically lauded shooter darling was arguably the shot in the arm the Fps genre needed back in 2007 and helped catapult the Call of Duty brand into the cultural phenomenon it has become today.
Fast-forward 9 years and the juggernaut series’ dizzying rollercoaster success story seems to be hitting a few bumps; most notably, that trailer. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s sci-fi reveal trailer received a record number of dislikes earlier this year, and rapidly became the second most disliked video on YouTube. It’s understandable, too, as there are a number of reasons why some fans, »

San Andreas‘ Brad Peyton will direct Malignant Man, a sci-fi/action project being produced by horror icon James Wan (The Conjuring, The Conjuring 2, Saw, Dead Silence, Fast 7, Insidious), reports Heat Vision. “The story focuses on Alex Gates, a patient dying of a terminal disease who is resigned to his fate … until he discovers that his […] »
Director James Wan clearly knows a thing or two about sequels. His The Conjuring 2 is not simply a remake of the first one but delivers a wealth of new scares, and despite a steep running time, it’s a worthy follow-up. Wan (Saw, Dead Silence, Insidious) delivers another adventure of those true-life Catholic P.I.s (Paranormal Investigators) Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga). This time they’re introduced in 1976 performing a séance at the original Amityville horror house on Long Island where Lorraine is terrorized by a demonic nun who haunts her dreams. The Conjuring 2 then shifts to England, where it focuses on the real-life “Enfield Poltergeist” case (the Brit version of Amityville). Peggy Hodgson (Frances O’Conner) a weary working-class single mother of four, has had her home turned into a playground for a host of demonic forces that may center on an »

Ever since his first feature film, Saw, was unleashed on unsuspecting audiences at Sundance in 2004, James Wan has continued to leave an indelible mark on the world of modern horror, creating two successful franchises—the aforementioned Saw and Insidious—and crafting several other truly remarkable genre efforts along the way, including Dead Silence and Death Sentence.
This weekend, Wan is hoping for a franchise three-peat with The Conjuring 2, his stunning sequel to 2013’s highly successful supernatural tale about the work of Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine (Vera Farmiga) Warren, two paranormal investigators who tackled evil time and time again throughout their careers. The follow-up film takes the couple to Enfield, England, where they must help the Hodgson family deal with an entity that is relentlessly tormenting them, especially young Janet (Madison Wolfe), who has become a pawn for the angry spirit.

There’s no denying that as far as modern filmmakers go, James Wan is in a class of his own. For over the last 12 years, he’s been the driving force behind numerous great horror films (I’m even a sucker for his criminally underrated Dead Silence), and he even rose to the gargantuan challenge that came with helming last year’s Furious 7. And before he dives into the world of Aquaman, Wan returns to his cinematic roots this summer with a special treat for horror fans: a thrilling sequel to The Conjuring that’s even better than its incredibly well-made predecessor and proves that character-driven genre stories are still the best way to scare the pants off audiences.

Thanks to the breakout success of the gritty shocker Saw in 2004, James Wan was immediately tagged as a filmmaker to watch. His next two movies, the atmospheric horror tale Dead Silence and the brutal thriller Death Sentence, may not have performed well at the box office, but they showed the increasing range of his talent. They also set the stage for a trio of intense and popular fright flicks from Wan: Insidious (2010), The Conjuring (2013) and Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013). After the popular success of those films, Wan took on the action blockbuster Furious 7 after director Justin Lin stepped away from the franchise. Wan guided the movie through its many challenges, including the unexpected death of Paul Walker, and Furious 7 was a giant success worldwide. The filmmaker...

Movie junkie Jessie Robbins picks a fright flick for a Saturday night. Rarely do I find a man who is kind, clean-shaven, sharply dressed, big mechanically blinking eyes, silent unless I tell him what to say and has a nicely separated jaw. Wait, no, that’s ventriloquist dummies. Hah! That would have been weird. Dummies get…
