Longtime actor and former child star Sean Astin is not a fan of watching horror movies.
“That sensation of jumping because somebody's hand comes through the window to grab your throat -- I don't like that,” he tells Et, which is a bit ironic considering he’s starring in two back-to-back horror projects released in October.
First is Dead Ant, a campy film about killer ants, which Astin says is an homage to those ‘70s B-list horror movies like Empire of the Ants, that premiered at the 2017 ScreamFest in Hollywood, California. The film sees the actor playing an aging rocker with an insane mullet and bad tattoos, who doesn’t quite make it to the end. “I wish I had more time to play with the rest of the group,” Astin says of the cast, which includes Tom Arnold and Jake Busey, but he had fun playing up the Los Angeles music scene. “I felt strangely »

The rarely-spotted unicorn that is Netflix's ratings data has cantered out from the forest of secrecy once more...
“There’s a unique satisfaction that comes from being the first to finish a story — whether it's the final page of a book or the last climactic moments of your favourite TV show. Netflix allows you to watch in a way you never could before, and there's nothing better than seeing a show engage our members and ignite a passion for viewing.”

Netflix is very interested in traveling back to Stars Hollow — and now we have a big clue as to why.
The super-secretive streamer pulled the curtain back on its internal data stream this week, releasing a list of their most “binge-raced” series (i.e. those shows where viewers watched a full season in a single day or less), and Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life came in at No. 1.

The opening season of Netflix’s Stanger Things may have been teeming with memorable moments and breakout performances, but Millie Bobby Brown arguably stole the show as Eleven, a reticent orphan who escapes the fictional Hawkins National Laboratory and, in doing so, develops an insatiable taste for Eggos.
Last seen confronting the Demogorgon in order to spare Mike and the gang, many feared that Millie Bobby Brown’s pint-sized heroine had slipped into the Upside Down forever. Left to rot beside Barb and all of the other victims that had been dragged into the show’s nightmarish alternate reality.
Thankfully that’s not the case, as Netflix has today unveiled the first clip from Stranger Things season 2 and it brings us back to Hawkins High – or, more specifically, its horrific mirror image. And so, after a brief introduction from Millie Bobby Brown herself, who has already muscled her way into »

With its newest film, the X-Men franchise plans on going in a much darker direction. Like, much, much darker. The first trailer for The New Mutants recently dropped, and its overt horror genre vibes definitely gave some longtime fans of the series a shock.

The film doesn't premiere until next Spring, but apparently a New Mutants trilogy is already in the works. Here's everything we know about it so far!

Can't wait for Stranger Things season two? Thank McM Comic Con London and Millie Bobby Brown for this exclusive clip. You already know Brown's character Eleven will return to Hawkins—she was featured in all her moody glory in the final trailer for the upcoming batch of episodes—but it appears this might be how she gets out of the Upside Down. You may recall Eleven ended up trapped in the Upside Down at the end of season one after she saved the day. In the clip above, Eleven, who is in her pink dress from season one and without the mop top seen in the season two promo materials, uses her powers to open the rift between what appears to be the real world and the Upside Down and pops out in gooey »

Earlier this week, 20th Century Fox revealed the first trailer for its horror-themed X-Men spinoff The New Mutants, and now director Josh Boone has been chatting to IGN about the film’s tone, his plans for a trilogy of movies, and their place in the wider X-Men universe.
“We brought it to Foxas a trilogy of films, really all based on that long run by Sienkiewicz, and kind of incorporates some stuff from later issues in the 1980s,” said Boone. “These are all going to be horror movies, and they’re all be their own distinct kind of horror movies. This is certainly the ‘rubber-reality’ supernatural horror movie. The next one will be a completely different kind of horror movie. Our take was just go examine the horror genre through comic book movies and make each one its own distinct sort of horror film. Drawing from the big events that we love in the comics. »

Halloween is just around the corner, meaning it’s that time of year for inappropriate costumes to spark outrage online. The latest is a costume modeled after Millie Bobby Brown’s “Stranger Things” character Eleven. Called the “Upside Down Honey,” the costume features a pink dress-blue jacket combo similar to the one worn by Brown in the series. It also has a higher hem and lower neckline than Brown’s original version, and is paired with thigh-high socks and heels. The costume has been met with outrage online, given that Brown’s character is a child, and the actress herself it just 13 years old. »

After months of sitting in limbo, Paul Reiser’s period comedy “There’s… Johnny!” has finally been given a premiere date: All seven episodes launch November 16, on Hulu.
For Reiser, it’s a relief to finally get to show his pet project to the world. “There’s… Johnny!” had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year and was originally set to debut on NBC Universal’s Seeso digital platform in August. But then Seeso was shut down, leaving all of its original series hanging.
Some of Seeso’s existing programs, including “Harmontown,” were sold to another digital company, Vrv. After three or four months of conversations with various potential homes, “There’s… Johnny!” finally landed at Hulu, as part of an overall distribution deal the streaming service signed with NBCU.
