Here are 25 political thrillers which are underappreciated but brilliant.

Watch: ‘Bye Bye Man’ Feeds on Fear in New Trailer
A powerful supernatural entity has begun to dominate the lives of three college students in the new trailer for Stx Entertainment’s new teaser trailer for its horror-thriller “The Bye Bye Man.”

The teaser starts with a series of violent crime scenes in a suburban area with a chilling voiceover that intones, “You hear the stories every day. Violent crimes. Countless victims. Unthinkable acts. You wonder what could possess a person to do such unthinkable things.”

The film recounts a series of terrifying events experienced by three Wisconsin college students, played by Douglas Smith, Cressida Bonas and Lucien Laviscount, who move into an old house off campus and unwittingly unleash a supernatural entity known as the Bye Bye Man — who comes to prey upon them once they discover his name.

BitTorrent’s First Web Series Will Be (Legally) Available In 2015

BitTorrent is out to prove it’s not all about illegal downloads and questionable sharing ethics. The tech company is releasing its first original web series called Children of the Machine in fall 2015. Directed by Marco Weber (producer of The Thirteenth Floor and Unthinkable), Children of the Machine is a sci-fi series set in the year 2031. It chronicles the lives of a society where humans must work together to survive after androids start dominating. Children of the Machine will be available for download exclusively on BitTorrent. According to AdWeek, Weber chose to release his upcoming series on the data-sharing website because its male-dominated, 170+ million user base was exactly the type of audience he was looking for. "This is a science fiction show catered to the typical tech-savvy, male-dominated audience," Weber said. "We're not trying to launch a romantic comedy, so the concept of this show moved us toward BitTorrent."

Arrow season 3 episode 1 review: The Calm

Arrow returns as slick and strong as it was in season 2. Here's Caroline's review of the third season opener...

This review contains spoilers.

3.1 The Calm

We ended Arrow’s second season on a much happier note than after its first, but the title to this third season premiere was a pretty big indication that the characters wouldn’t stay safe and happy forever. The titular calm actually seems to refer to the time over the summer rather than the bulk of this episode, with Oliver’s desperate grab for normalcy and safety for those he loves once again proving just out of his reach.

Team Arrow is a well-oiled crime fighting machine at this point, with the addition of Roy as back-up hero, Laurel as their aid in the court room and Quentin still acting as their ‘friend on the force’ against doctors orders, all boosting their numbers significantly. Crime
