Along with Hulu originals like the horror anthology “Into the Dark” and the second season of Stephen King’s “Castle Rock,” the streamer is also offering films from the “Saw,” “Blade” and “Hellraiser” franchises beginning next month. For the more faint of heart, Hulu is also offering three seasons of Food Network’s “Halloween Wars” and the surely adorable “Kids Halloween Baking Championship.”

Not specifically Halloween-themed, but potentially haunting: All six seasons of the original run of “The Hills” will be available to stream on Oct. 1 for those looking to revisit the halcyon days of reality television and questionable late-aughts fashion.

The Walking Dead Comic Almost Ended Much Earlier

John Saavedra Jul 3, 2019

Robert Kirkman has revealed that he almost ended The Walking Dead comic years ago.

Robert Kirkman has brought The Walking Dead comic to an end this week, and the conclusion has understandably shocked quite a few fans who expected the zombie series to continue for many more years to come. Just an issue after Rick Grimes was murdered by the coward Sebastian Milton, Kirkman closed out the story with a moving coda focused on Carl and the other remaining survivors. While the ending is bittersweet, it's safe to say that it leaves the world Kirkman has built over a span of 16 years in a much better place than he originally planned. 

In a letter to fans at the end of the now-infamous issue #193, Kirkman revealed that he had originally intended to close out The Walking Dead with the "No Way Out" storyline that saw Rick and the

Ray Milland in The Big Clock Available on Blu-ray May 14th From Arrow Academy

Ray Milland in The Big Clock (1948) will be available on Blu-ray From Arrow Academy May 14th

Adapted by acclaimed screenwriter Jonathan Latimer from a novel by the equally renowned crime author Kenneth Fearing, The Big Clock is a superior suspense film which classily combines screwball comedy with heady thrills.

Overworked true crime magazine editor George Stroud has been planning a vacation for months. However, when his boss, the tyrannical media tycoon Earl Janoth, insists he skips his holiday, Stroud resigns in disgust before embarking on an impromptu drunken night out with his boss’s mistress, Pauline York. When Janoth kills Pauline in a fit of rage, Stroud finds himself to have been the wrong man, in the wrong place, at the wrong time: his staff have been tasked with finding a suspect with an all too familiar description… Stroud s very own!

Here’s How To Unlock Infinite Ammo In Resident Evil 2’s Ghost Survivors Dlc

Though the Ghost Survivors Dlc for the remake of Resident Evil 2 ultimately didn’t prove to be my cup of tea, it’s been adored by those who love extra gameplay scenarios such as “The 4th Survivor” or Raid Mode. If you were to ask me, the new content kind of feels like a marriage of those two concepts.

Believe it or not, there’s a way to make your future Ghost Survivors playthroughs a lot easier. But much like how unlocking weapons with infinite ammo during the main game is quite difficult, so, too, is doing so in the Dlc. In fact, one could argue that it’s even more challenging after reading this article.

In order to get the elusive Gunslinger achievement, you’re going to have to unlock the “No Way Out” scenario. To do this, you’ll first have to complete all three of the initially available Ghost Survivors episodes,

Sidney Poitier movies: 20 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘In the Heat of the Night,’ ‘Lilies of the Field’
Sidney Poitier celebrates his 92nd birthday on February 20, 2019. The Oscar-winning star broke down barriers for actors of color, becoming a Hollywood leading man at a time before black Americans were even granted full civil rights. He also opened doors for black directors after stepping behind the camera for nine features. In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at 20 of his greatest films, ranked worst to best.

Born in 1927, Poitier made his big screen debut in “No Way Out” (1950), playing a doctor treating a racist white bigot (Richard Widmark). Just eight years later he was competing at the Oscars as Best Actor for “The Defiant Ones” (1958), which centers on two runaway fugitives chained together — one black, the other white (Tony Curtis). His bid made him the first black male performer to contend in an acting category at the Academy.

The Forgotten: Sub Sub

  • MUBI
James B. Harris is still with us, still wants to make films I believe, but has slipped below radar. His odd, discontinuous and peripatetic directing career, which has resulted in some remarkable works, has been consigned to footnote status below his early period as Stanley Kubrick's producer on The Killing, Lolita and Dr. Strangelove.I met Mr. Harris briefly at a party on a boat during the Lumière Film Festival in Lyons, but didn't get a chance to talk much as he was soon up on his feet dancing to Blondie. He was around 85 at the time. If "Heart of Glass" still gets you on your feet, there should be a rule that says you're still allowed to make movies.The Bedford Incident (1965) was Harris's directorial debut, and also the first film where Sidney Poitier plays a role in which his race is not mentioned or relevant to the plot.

WWE Elimination Chamber 2019 Results and Matches

Gavin Jasper Feb 17, 2019

Six men entered a dangerous cage to do battle...over a belt made out of hemp. Wrestling is weird sometimes.

On the Road to WrestleMania, the peanut butter to Royal Rumble’s jelly is Elimination Chamber. So before Fastlane and WrestleMania 35 hit us, we have to get through WWE Elimination Chamber 2019. While the Elimination Chamber match type has been around since 2002, the show itself started in 2010 as a renamed version of No Way Out. This one intends to be a special kind of installment due to introducing the women’s tag team championship.

The Chamber match itself is based on four wrestlers (or tag teams) hanging out in special pods, surrounded by a cage. Two others battle it out and every few minutes, a new opponent will be released from one of the pods. Pins and submissions are in play, but otherwise, everything goes.

‘A Raisin in the Sun’: Sidney Poitier Faces the Strains of a Segregated World

Lorraine Hansberry is sometimes lost in the shuffle of famous playwrights, which is quite a shame considering she was the first African American writer to have work produced on Broadway. While only a few of her plays made it to the stage due to her young and untimely death, Hansberry utilized her writing to help the Civil Rights artistic movement, specifically with her hit Broadway show A Raisin in the Sun. Starring Ruby Dee, Sidney Poitier, Diana Sands (all three of whom reprised their roles on screen), among others, the play centers on an African American family struggling with being swallowed by racism in their everyday lives. The show became so popular that Columbia Pictures adapted it for the screen with Hansberry writing the script. Despite the issues that can often come when adapting from stage to screen, Hansberry and company manage to create a space for their actors to

Color Of Night – The Blu Review

Review by Roger Carpenter

We all have so-called “guilty pleasures” in life and I guess my affinity for Color of Night would be considered a guilty pleasure. This film, which has been reviled by critics and viewers alike since it’s 1994 release, and won several Razzie awards upon its release, is one of my favorite films. I absolutely love this film. It’s not a guilty pleasure for me at all because I feel no guilt whatsoever in admitting my love for this film. I cannot tell you how excited I was when I received a screener copy from Kino-Lorber in my mail. So, now that my admission is out of the way, let’s talk about the release itself.

Director Richard Rush, who had not directed a film for 14 years after the success of 1980’s Peter O’Toole vehicle The Stuntman , was tapped to direct Color of Night. Rush

Sean Young Claims She Didn't Mean to Take Laptops from Film That Fired Her — as Producers Say No Way

Sean Young Claims She Didn't Mean to Take Laptops from Film That Fired Her — as Producers Say No Way
Following the news on Friday that she was being sought for questioning in a reported burglary in New York City earlier this week, actress and Blade Runner star Sean Young released a statement characterizing the situation as a misunderstanding and said she had yet to be contacted by authorities.

Others involved in the case, however, strenuously dispute this version of events.

The mounting war of words between Young and the crew of a film on which she had been hired — and then fired — this summer traces back to the loss of two laptops from that production’s office in Queens’ Astoria neighborhood.
