Based on the novel by Margaret Atwood, the American government is overthrown by dissidents and replaced by a totalitarian regime. Women are stripped of all of their rights and forced into domestic servitude or used as breeding stock. Initially less interested in resistance than maintaining the status quo, book editor turned "breeder" June is now determined to tear Gilead apart from the inside. Her goal: saving future generations, particularly her daughter Hannah, from growing up in a patriarchal society where there are two options: submit or die.

Heroes are not born, they are made, and June has broken a few eggs on her journey from survivor to fighter. Here are

Looking for Alaska Review: Teen Drama Done Right

With TV shows premiering at an alarming rate, it's becoming increasingly difficult to cut through the clutter to find the ones that are worth watching. 

Hulu's Looking for Alaska, based on the John Green novel of the same name, is a coming of age story that is well worth watching. 

Yes, it's filled with the melodrama you would expect from a teen drama, but it delivers a solid plot about a group of younger people trying to find themselves in the world. 

At the wheel is Charlie Plummer as Miles "Pudge" Halter, a teenager who is fascinated by last words. 

It's certainly a different thing for a teenager to like in this social media conscious world, but Looking for Alaska feels like a teen drama from the early days of the WB, and it's all thanks to when it is set. 

It's refreshing to see a bunch of youngsters

I Watched the Trailer For The Turning, and Now I'll Probably Never Sleep Again

  • Popsugar
Hopefully, Mackenzie Davis picked up a few lessons in self-defense while filming Terminator: Dark Fate, because she'll need all the protection she can get in The Turning.

The trailer for the upcoming horror film stars Davis as Kate, a young nanny who journeys to a remote estate in the Maine countryside to help care for two orphans - Flora (The Florida Project's Brooklynn Prince) and Miles (Stranger Things alum Finn Wolfhard). Despite the gorgeous home where they reside, the children are clearly disturbed, and Kate soon discovers that they've been harboring a dark and potentially fatal secret about the mysterious death of their parents.

The Turning is directed by Floria Sigismondi (The Handmaid's Tale) and was inspired by the iconic Henry James novel, so yes - nightmares are in your future. (As if the shot of Wolfhard's character chomping down on a giant spider didn't give that away already.

Yes, Netflix's In the Tall Grass Was Filmed in Literal Tall Grass

In addition to its psychological thrills, Netflix's In the Tall Grass very much relies on its physical horrors. We're talking about not only the movie's dead bodies, but also the towering blades of grass that make the characters look like the creatures in A Bug's Life. Based on Stephen King and Joe Hill's horror novella of the same name, the film looks as though it were shot in America's heartland. But here's a surprise: In the Tall Grass was actually filmed in Canada.

Like season three of The Handmaid's Tale, the Netflix movie, helmed by sci-fi director Vincenzo Natali, was shot in the beautiful Canadian landscape. The most remarkable visual imagery in this movie is the grass. While it's creepy, it's not all CGI. Most of the filming took place on a grass farm in Ontario, and some parts took place on a soundstage that was transformed with tall green blades.

Bradley Whitford has already had a hell of a career, and tonight he adds a new gig to his resume: choir director.  Whitford stars in NBC's Perfect Harmony as Arthur Cochran, a depressed former Princeton music professor who stumbles upon a small town choir in need of some musical direction, and while he's not new to comedies, the show is a big leap from Whitford's most recent role on The Handmaid's Tale.  "I really wanted to do a comedy," Whitford said at the TV Critics Association summer press tour, explaining that it was creator Jason Winer who attracted him to this particular show, as well as the focus on music.  "I knew I wanted to work with Jason, and then I...
