‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’ Film Review: Teen Horror Anthology Spins Some Spooky Yarns

‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’ Film Review: Teen Horror Anthology Spins Some Spooky Yarns
In the opening moments of director André Øvredal’s “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark,” a child’s voice tells us that stories have the power to hurt or heal. They make us who we are. True to its word, “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” delivers an entrancing thriller that explores the power of narratives with a few screams to boot.

It’s welcoming enough for teens and perhaps just creepy enough for the average grown-up horror movie fan, since producer and co-writer Guillermo del Toro is one of the filmmakers bringing the monsters from Alvin Schwartz’s original novels to the big screen.

Like a late-’60s send-up of “Stranger Things” (itself a reference to other horror-movie inspirations from the ’80s), “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” follows a close group of friends, all outsiders, as their paths cross with a nefarious, supernatural presence. The

Legendary Is Developing a Series Set in the World of The Wizard Of Oz

Legendary Entertainment is developing a TV series that will be set in the land of Oz that was created by author L. Frank Baum. If you’re a fan of The Wizard of Oz, then this is a series that you might be interested in watching.

‘Glass’ Review – Second Opinion

Stars: Bruce Willis, James McAvoy, Samuel L. Jackson, Sarah Paulson, Anya Taylor-Joy, Spencer Treat Clark, Charlayne Woodard, Adam David Thompson, Luke Kirby | Written and Directed by M. Night Shyamalan

Crafting the breadcrumbs in only his second feature Unbreakable, after his breakout hit The Sixth Sense – both starring action hero Bruce Willis released in 2000 and 1999 respectively. A string of critical and financial failures with Lady in the Water, The Happening, The Last Airbender and After Earth seemed to, unfortunately, conclude the end of writer-director and twist talisman Shyamalan’s career.

‘Homeland’ Final Season: Nimrat Kaur & Numan Acar To Reprise Season 4 Roles

  • Deadline
Exclusive: We are getting a major new clue about the upcoming eighth and final season of Showtime’s terrorism drama Homeland. Nimrat Kaur and Numan Acar, who had major recurring roles in Season 4, are rejoining the cast for the upcoming eighth and final season.

Kaur and Acar played Tasneem Qureshi, a member of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence, and Haissam Haqqani, a Taliban leader, respectively, in Season 4, which was set in Afghanistan and Pakistan. No setting has been announced for the upcoming final chapter of Homeland, which is set to film in Morocco, but there has been speculation that it would be set entirely or partially in Pakistan/Afghanistan. Kaur and Acar’s return certainly support such plot line.

The Alex Gansa-Howard Gordon political thriller, based on an Israeli format, had alternated domestic and international settings, with the action based primarily in New York and Washington D.C. the last two seasons.

35 Things You Didn't Know About Stranger Things

Dan Cooper Nov 20, 2018

Inspirations, special effects, a nod to Jaws and what could have been a near fatal accident, we go behind the scenes on Stranger Things...

This story originally appeared on Den of Geek UK.

If like me, you’re a Stranger Things aficionado, you’re probably kicking your heels and mourning not making the annual round trip to Hawkins, Indiana this autumn, as the show takes a year off before season three releases. Upsetting, I know. While you could "do a Joyce" and spend that time howling in anguish at the walls, cursing the fickle and cruel gods of television, ultimately, that’s an inadvisable approach, as you’ll probably just get a sore throat and blame it on us.

Fear not though, because a crumb of comfort is on the way. The official Stranger Things behind-the-scenes companion has just released, courtesy of Penguin Random House, and it

6 Good Things That Came Out of Bad Movies

Paul Bradshaw Oct 15, 2018

Because every Gigli has a silver lining, we look at how bad movies ultimately made good things happen.

No movie is all bad. Some films seem so misguided that it’s hard to see why anyone didn't stop them being made before they cost so much time, money and talent, yet sometimes those same mistakes have led to something genuinely great further down the line.

Careers have been ruined by stinkers like After Earth and Gigli – but they’ve also been made. A really, truly, unequivocally terrible movie often makes a big impact in the film industry as everyone else scrabbles to try and avoid repeating it – shaping genres, shifting tides and making sure we never have to watch The Last Airbender again.

However bad some movies might be, there’s always a silver lining if you look for it…

Matt Reeves and Shonda Rhimes Are Developing a Film and TV Adaptation of The Sci-Fi Thriller Recursion

Netflix has landed the rights to Blake Crouch’s upcoming sci-fi thriller novel Recursion and there’s a great creative team coming together to develop it as both a film and a series. Filmmaker Matt Reeves has jumped on board the project as has Shonda Rhimes (Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice). Before we go on, here’s a rundown of the fascinating story which comes from the guy who wrote the Wayward Pines trilogy:

Recursion is part save-the-world sci-fi thriller, part epic romance, as well as an intricate police procedural. The book explores what happens when a brilliant female scientist invents a powerful technology that allows people not just to reactivate their most visceral memories but to reinvent them entirely. For some, it offers the chance to rewrite their entire lives. In the wrong hands, it will upend the world as we know it.
