Simon Brew Oct 2, 2017

Revisiting the film of Stephen King's The Shawshank Redemption

Rebecca Lea Sep 25, 2017

Our lookbacks at the screen adaptations of Stephen King arrive at the hugely popular The Shawshank Redemption...

The film: Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) is accused of murdering his wife and her lover. Despite protesting his innocence, the jury is unconvinced and he is given two life sentences, the duration of which will be endured at Shawshank Prison. There, he meets Red (Morgan Freeman) who narrates their story. The two men form a close friendship as Andy gets used to prison life, dealing with aggressive fellow inmates, corrupt prison officials, and eventually running the Shawshank library.

American Horror Story - Cult episode 3 review: Neighbors From Hell

Ron Hogan Sep 20, 2017

American Horror Story has dialled down the supernatural but stayed as horrifying and unpredictable as ever. Spoilers...

7.3 Neighbors From Hell

There's a rope around the neck of Ally Mayfair-Richards (Sarah Paulson), and it seems that at every turn, rather than try to extract herself from the gallows, she only manages to tighten the noose a little tighter with every episode of struggling. Her business was failing and her marriage was a wreck before she shoots an innocent man in a case of mistaken identity, but after that, things only seem to be getting worse.

Cult is operating in a world not unlike our own, just heightened to a ridiculous degree. After shooting Pedro in a case of mistaken identity, the gun-fearing liberal Ally

Want to Know Who's in the Cult on Ahs? This Theory About the Characters' Names Tells You

  • BuzzSugar
While it's somewhat obvious which American Horror Story: Cult characters are evil (*cough, Kai, cough*), this one theory connects all the potentially evil cult members, and it makes too much sense to ignore. During this week's episode, "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark," we were introduced to Ally and Ivy's new neighbor, Meadow Wilton (Leslie Grossman), who we flagged as suspicious the second she compared Beyoncé's "Lemonade" to her powder Crystal Light. But what's even more sketchy is that her name perfectly aligns with the other nature-inspired character names in the series thus far. We get it, it's 2017 and people have some crazy names, but Reddit user thismaybemean brings up the idea that all the characters with nature-inspired names are cult members, and we're convinced. Read on to see the proof that all cult members have similar names. RelatedWhat Happens on Ahs: Cult Could All Boil Down to This Character's

34 Things About This Week's American Horror Story: Cult That Made Us Hyperventilate

  • BuzzSugar
Spoilers for American Horror Story: Cult below! Someone get Ryan Murphy on the phone, because that man is responsible for sending my blood pressure through the damn roof during this week's episode of American Horror Story: Cult. While watching "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark," I somehow surpassed the loud volume of hyperventilating I did during the premiere, waking up not only my boyfriend downstairs, but also my cat and perhaps the entire neighborhood. Do you think my therapist will accept personal checks from FX? Anyway. In season seven's second episode, we're treated to more creepy clown spottings. And a man dangling from a meat hook. And another terrifying encounter with Kai, who desperately needs a trip to the salon. Oh, and how could we forget about that shooting?! Without further ado, let's dive into what went down this week before I pass out from fear (again). RelatedThe Exceedingly Creepy

What Happens on Ahs: Cult Could All Boil Down to This Character's Unique Name

  • BuzzSugar
Of all the insane things that happen in American Horror Story: Cult's second episode, "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark," one of the more shocking moments is when Ally (Sarah Paulson) and Ivy (Allison Pill) offhandedly reveal the full name of their young son, Ozzy: Ozymandias Mayfair-Richards. Quite a mouthful, huh? While the nature of Oz's true parentage is still up for debate - we have a strong feeling his "real" mom is Ivy, but who's the father? - the meaning behind his full name is crystal clear. So, where does the name Ozymandias come from? A poem, actually. A very ominous poem. Although the name Ozymandias (which means "a tyrant, a dictator, a megalomaniac; someone or something of immense size, a colossus") has Greek roots and dates back to roughly 323 BC, Percy Bysshe Shelley brought the word to prominence in 1818 after publishing a sonnet by the same name.

Since American Horror Story: Cult is intent on giving us a copious amount of nightmares, we turned to the one place we know will always make us smile: the fridge Twitter.

7.2 Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark

Fortunately for Sarah Paulson, she has a much calmer week this week than she did during Election Night. Rather than screaming and breaking down multiple times, she only has a few crying jags. For most of the episode, rather than being completely irrational, she's more paranoid and anxious. Ally's fear turns inward, rather than outward, which allows Sarah Paulson to do more subtle work this week as a woman taken to the very fringes of her ability to withstand life. When there are dangers lurking in every shadow and your personal and professional life seem to be falling apart,

'American Horror Story: Cult' Recap: Do Ally's Delusions Get Worse?
American Horror Story: Cult returns with another spine-tingling episode full of clowns and scares. It's been difficult to tell whether the clowns are real or not already. One minute, they seem like Ally's delusions, and the next, they're possibly real. Even Twisty isn't a certainty, especially considering he was in Freak Show.

This episode, titled "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark," kicks off exactly where the season 7 premiere ended: Ally is in bed with the three-headed clown.

Darkest Hour: new trailer for acclaimed drama

Simon Brew Oct 2, 2017

The second of the two competing Winston Churchill movies edges closer. Here's the latest trailer for Darkest Hour...

Remember the summer when Deep Impact and Armageddon went head to head at the box office? Well, it’s sort of the same this year. Just with, er, Winston Churchill.

We’ve already had the release of Churchill, starring Brian Cox. A film that without Brian Cox in it would have been a pretty forgettable movie. Director Joe Wright is next to have a go, though, with Darkest Hour, which lands in cinemas later this year. Well, that’s if you’re in the Us.

  • DailyDead
From her key role in Don't Be Afraid of the Dark to her work on Good Witch, Holliston, and R.L.

'Deadpool' Tops $490M Worldwide; 'Risen', 'Witch' & 'Mermaid' Open Strong

'Deadpool' Tops $490M Worldwide; 'Risen', 'Witch' & 'Mermaid' Open Strong
Deadpool took #1 at the weekend box office once again in its second weekend of release, crossing $235 million domestically. But it wasn't a weekend all about the Merc with the Mouth as a pair of newcomers in Risen and The Witch had strong opening performances. Additionally, Focus' Race finished its debut sprint with a sixth place finish and Sony saw an impressive limited opening for Stephen Chow's Chinese box office behemoth The Mermaid. In first, Deadpool brought in an estimated $55 million in its second weekend, a 58.5% drop from last weekend, which is well within expectation as films that open over $100 million tend to drop, on average, 54.3%. Deadpool, as it turns out, had a similar drop to the previous R-rated opening weekend champion, The Matrix Reloaded, which dropped 59.8% in its second weekend back in 2003. The film's drop, however, is much better than last year's Valentine's and President's Day weekend champ, Fifty Shades of Grey,

Growing pains by Amber Wilkinson

Kuba Czekaj: 'We know that the son, for the mother, is maybe like a girl because she doesn't recognise that he is becoming a young man' Photo: Lukasz Bak Kuba Czekaj's Baby Bump is showing as part of the Biennale College initiative at Venice Film Festival, which helps emerging filmmakers to develop their work. Starring Kacper Olszewski and Agnieszka Podsiadlik , it charts an 11-year-old boy's relationship with his mother and his own body as things begin to shift and change. I caught up with Czekaj to talk about why growing up can be a tricky business.
