We rounded up 10 female horror directors for Jason Blum, who seems to have trouble finding them

With the release of Blumhouse’s rebooted Halloween just a couple of days away, studio head Jason Blum has been doing his usual round of interviews touting the studio’s success. But rather than letting Blum rest on the laurels of Get Out and Halloween, Matt Patches of Polygon asked Blum about a less flattering aspect…

The Real World is pivoting to Facebook video, which, uh, good luck with that

Catching the zeitgeist just as aggressively as the days when it first introduced the world to concepts like “roommates” and “people acting like assholes for attention on TV,” MTV has announced that its long-running reality series The Real World is making the move to Facebook video, that most reliable and profitable of…

Jane Curtin on the worst SNL guest host: "God, there were so many"

There are few gigs in modern TV more fraught with the potential to out yourself as a massive asshole than hosting Saturday Night Live. Pretty much every factor—the rush, the pressure, the presence of the live camera—is almost guaranteed to bring out the worst in people, whether it’s deciding to bust out their “funny”…

Aubrey Plaza leads a parade of bad taste and noir misfits in An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn

B-

To the extent that Jim Hosking’s cartoonishly grotesque characters can be called human, they paint an unflattering portrait of the species. They are dopes and bullies, middle-aged virgins and horndogs with bad hair, disgusting habits, ugly thrift-store clothes. The Greasy Strangler, his debut feature, pitched itself…

Redman's fine with not being in the How High sequel, for it is not as God intended 

How High broke no box office records when it hit theaters in 2001, nor did it turn rappers Redman and Method Man into Hollywood A-listers. It did, however, feel distinctly theirs, so it was something of a shock to learn that MTV’s upcoming sequel wouldn’t feature either of the franchise’s original stars, despite the…

Night Of The Living Dead is coming to get you, America—and we've got free tickets

Sure, technically you could watch Night Of The Living Dead (1968) on YouTube, thanks to the copyright registration error that’s made George Romero’s game-changing horror masterpiece also one of the most famous public-domain titles of all time. But those versions won’t be the 4k Ultra HD restoration of the film, which…

Nathan For You won't be returning for season 5, unless this is just another wacky scheme 

Get ready for a real taste of poo-flavored frozen yogurt: As reported by Pitchfork, Comedy Central has confirmed that Nathan For You won’t be returning for a fifth season. As a little bit of silver lining, it sounds like the decision to stop the show came from creator and host Nathan Fielder, not the soulless Viacom…

See Nicole Kidman as you've never seen her before in the Destroyer trailer

We were fans of Destroyer, director Karyn Kusama’s followup to her 2015 thriller The Invitation, when it made its North American debut at this year’s Fantastic Fest. At the time, we said that what made this particular variation on the rogue-cop movie special was the “collaboration between actress and director that…

Here's what's coming to (and going from) Hulu in November

November’s a month for binging, what with that surplus of Halloween candy and Thanksgiving’s bountiful scraps. As such, Hulu has packed its platform with a slew of series, from Hulu’s own The Bisexual to the debut season of AMC’s Dietland to the entirety of Fox’s perverse Married... With Children. You can also verse…

Michael can't explain what's going on in this exclusive The Good Place previewbut Agent Rick Justice can

The Good Place thrives on a sense of manic improvisation, both from its characters, and from itself. Nobody embodies that sense of “Screw it, let’s try the next plan/idea/iteration of the planet Earth” better than Ted Danson’s Michael, who’s been scrabbling for three seasons now, first to keep Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani,…
