Need to catch up? Check out the previous Nashville recap here.

The thing that many of us thought might happen to Scarlett and Gunnar after last week’s Nashville actually does happen in this week’s Nashville, and it’s heartbreaking. If you read these recaps with any regularity, you know that I’m far more likely to make a hemp-choker joke about Scarlett than to sympathize with her flights of emotional fancy. After all, how many public crying fits can a grown woman have before people stop taking her seriously? Yet when Deacon’s niece suffers a miscarriage in “You Can’t Lose Me,

‘Scream’ Season 2 Finale Reveals Killer and Finally Pays Homage to Wes Craven

‘Scream’ Season 2 Finale Reveals Killer and Finally Pays Homage to Wes Craven
Warning: If you haven’t watched the Season 2 finale of “Scream” yet, spoilers are ahead.

MTV’s “Scream,” the television show inspired by the successful film franchise, ended its second season on Tuesday night by revealing a final surprise prepared by season one killer Piper (Amelia Rose Blaire) and Kieran (Amadeus Serafini), a disclosure that gradually revealed itself as the finale approached. Choosing this path was perhaps the closest the show had ever come to recreating the spirit of the Wes Craven film series.

The season finale — the strongest of a very uneven season — finally celebrated Craven’s work openly. Making references to all of the previous “Scream” films, the episode offered fans of the original story a chance to relive it in more modern ways. An opening car crash scene was strikingly similar to a moment in the second film, and other instances and dialogue closely recreated portions of the other films.

Scream Season 2 Review

One episode was provided prior to broadcast.

Slasher enthusiasts were presented with two episodic genre offerings last year, but they probably didn’t exactly get what they were looking for from either. Fox’s gaudy, exhausting Scream Queens had the glitz and glam of a Ryan Murphy production, but it boasted little of the dreadful fear needed to reign in the astronomical campiness radiated by its opening title sequence alone.

Then there was MTV’s Scream, a show adapted in spirit from the blockbuster series of films that reinvigorated slashers in the first place. Despite a nifty premiere – and some gnarly kill sequences throughout the season – it too suffered from a lack of coherent pacing and follow-through – not to mention actual horror – to truly earn the right to its brand name.

According to the always-meta Noah Foster (John Karna), “taking subconscious fears and externalizing them is what horror is all about.

Scream, Season 1, Episodes 8 to 10

Created by Jill E. Blotevogel, Jay Beattie, and Dan Dworkin

Aired Tuesdays at 10pm (Et) on MTV

There’s something we’ve got to talk about before we can talk about the final three episodes of Scream, and that’s about the sad passing of Wes Craven on Sunday, August 30th. There’s a thousand things to say about Wes Craven and what he did for the horror genre, especially in the Scream franchise, and there are plenty of great pieces on the man all across the internet, so I won’t repeat was has already been articulated. We wouldn’t have this show without Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson’s Scream franchise, which is one of the only horror franchises without a single bad installment. Even the weakest entry (Scream 3) is still pretty good. Horror, at one level, functions as an interplay between what

Scream: The TV Series Season 1 Episode 4 Review – ‘Aftermath’

Martin Carr reviews the fourth episode of Scream: The TV Series

It would be presumptuous of me to think that I have influence on the course of any programme, much less one like Scream: The TV Series. That strangest of all hybrids. An ironic genre mash-up, which itself was a deconstruction and revitalisation of the tired slasher movie. However it is nice to see that someone, somewhere recognised the need for Scream: The TV Series to pull its finger out.

After the lacklustre effort of last week, there exists in episode four reasons to be cheerful. Aside from a weak sub plot involving Connor and Amadeus. Which finds these two model slash jock straps whispering in corners like pre-school toddlers trying to hoard all the toys. Things are finally getting interesting. With Karna, Taylor-Klaus and Fitzgerald taking centre stage once more, there is cause for concern. By which I mean

How Will Doctor Strange Differ From Previous Marvel Movies?

Given the recent and pronounced changes to Marvel’s line-up, there is clearly a marked desire to reach a more modern and diverse audience. From the development of complex and diverse lead characters to the promotion of female superheroes, Marvel is dragging its brand into the modern-day and winning an army of new fans in the process.

One of the most exciting aspects is that it has brought new characters and narratives to the forefront of the comic book and cinematic world. Just as Thor introduced extra-terrestrial elements to the Marvel brand, so too we can expect the upcoming Doctor Strange film to leave its own unique mark on the superhero genre. This is something that we cannot wait for, and we’re sure that other fans feel exactly the same!

Due for release in the autumn of 2016, the new Doctor Strange film is expected to introduce magic and sorcery

If one glances around at the Movie-to-tv adaptation landscape, things are looking surprisingly good. Hannibal is the best show on television right now, Fargo was one of the best surprises of last year and looks like it will continue as such in its second season this fall, and now MTV is adding one more Movie-to-tv adaptation to its roster; shout out to MTV’s other Movie-to-tv breadwinner Teen Wolf, a show that is totally unashamed of how ridiculous and heightened it is and succeeds because of it. MTV’s Scream is so far surprisingly not terrible in the same way that Albert Pujols is playing surprisingly not terrible baseball right now–it’s a comfort, but you still expect more.

Laff Review Roundup: 'Caught,' 'Crumbs,' And 'Incorruptible'

"Caught" Largely a four-hander featuring a high school track star, the older businessman with whom she’s having an affair, the man’s wife, and the wife’s sister, “Caught” unfolds in a single suburban house and breaks out all the machinations to keep them there. If you’ve seen “Wait Until Dark” or “Panic Room,” you know the hiding spots, the camera angles, the shifts in power dynamics over a single evening. But director Maggie Kiley floods every room with light, bumps the bright production design up to overt, and sets a satirical tone that sets the thriller apart. Her teenage protagonist Allie (Stefanie Scott) sits at the film’s moral and thematic center, as a flawed, failing student wrapped up in a seemingly perfect package. It’s the ideal picture for bubbly housewife Sabrina (Anna Camp) to covet, and also attempt to destroy by kidnapping Allie with her

Laff 2015 Review: Caught

A darkly comedic spin on a familiar tale, Maggie Kiley’s Caught is an energetic and clever cat-and-mouse thriller revolving around the determination of one woman to preserve the sanctity of her marriage after she finds out she’s been cheated on. Written by Marcy Holland, Caught features a powerful and hilarious performance from True Blood’s Anna Camp and also co-stars Stefanie Scott (Insidious Chapter 3), Amelia Rose Blaire ( True Blood) and Sam Page (Mad Men) as the trio who must endure her madness after things go horribly awry.

Caught’s initial set-up is pretty straightforward; Sabrina (Camp) is a tightly-wound housewife who strives for perfection but discovers that her husband Justin (Page) is sleeping with a younger woman named Allie (Scott), forcing her to take drastic measures. Rather than confront her spouse, Sabrina decides to teach his lover a lesson by kidnapping Allie with the assistance of her sister
