The popular HBO show has taken fans on a rollercoaster ride for its 8th and final season — and it’s paid off with a nomination for best show. Star Maisie Williams was nominated for best hero, while Emilia Clarke was nominated for best performance in a show.

‘Avengers: Endgame,’ ‘Game of Thrones’ Dominate MTV Movie & TV Award Nominations
Two of this year’s biggest pop-culture entities, “Avengers: Endgame” and “Game of Thrones,” led the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards nominations.

This year’s show will feature three new categories: reality royalty, most meme-able moment, and best real-life hero. And continuing the precedent set in the 2017 show, the awards will not separate nominees by gender.

Marvel’s box office behemoth “Avengers: Endgame” dominated on the film front with four nominations, including best movie. The Oscar-nominated documentary “Rbg,” a touching non-fiction film about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, nabbed four nods: best movie, most meme-able moment, best fight, and real-life hero.

HBO’s “Game of Thrones” led the way for TV with four nominations. The final season of the fantasy epic was recognized for best show, best hero (Maisie Williams as Arya Stark), best performance (Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen), and best fight (Arya Stark vs. the White Walkers).

The Scariest Movie Scenes of 2018

The Scariest Movie Scenes of 2018
Decapitation, broken bones and supernatural monsters were popular additions to many of this year’s scariest film and television moments. And with multiple scenes reportedly causing audience walk-outs, this year’s horror entries didn’t shy away from the gratuitous gore and disturbing deaths that have made the genre what it is today.

See if scenes from your favorite horror show made the list below.

Suspiria” – Olga’s Death

Even if you haven’t seen Luca Guadagnino’s 2018 remake of “Suspiria,” you’ve most likely heard about it’s opening dance-studio death. The terrifying scene, which features the gruesome murder of one of the film’s principal dancers, caused some viewers to walk out of the theater, and with such a visceral death, it’s easy to see why. As Dakota Johnson’s character performs a violent dance number in the film’s central dance studio, her actions magically ravage

Michael Myers Gets Arrested by Pennsylvania Police in Halloween Prank

After having his new Halloween film become the highest-grossing slasher movie of all time, Michael Myers is one of the world's most infamous murderers. He might be a fictional character, but the boogeyman is spreading his terror worldwide, recently pulling in over $200 million at the global box office. In the film, Michael is a seemingly-unstoppable madman and no match for the Haddonfield Police Department. According to their official Facebook account, however, the Carlisle Borough Police Department in Pennsylvania fared much better with the masked maniac, announcing on Thursday they had arrested Michael Myers.

Of course, you can't arrest a movie character, so the post is obviously a joke. Still, it's humorous to see everyone getting into the Halloween spirit, even police officers. "Last night, the Carlisle Borough Police Department apprehended Michael Myers, a 61-year-old fugitive from Haddonfield, Illinois," the Facebook post begins. It is then described that Michael was arrested

Second Opinion – Halloween (2018)

Halloween, 2018.

Directed by David Gordon Green.

Starring Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, James Jude Courtney, Nick Castle, Haluk Bilginer, Will Patton, Rhian Rees, and Jefferson Hall.

Synopsis:

Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

Retconning the entire Halloween franchise was a ballsy move, but the 2018 version of Halloween – which acts as a direct sequel to the 1978 original – succeeds because of it. It’s been 40 years since Michael Myers attacked Laurie Strode (Curtis) and he’s back again. After escaping during a transfer to a new mental hospital, Michael comes back to Haddonfield and significantly ups the body count.

The original Halloween set the tone for every slasher film that came after it. Other than the original Scream (1996) which reinvigorated the genre for a moment, the

Jamie Lee Curtis Will Return in Halloween 2 If David Gordon Green Directs

Jamie Lee Curtis Will Return in Halloween 2 If David Gordon Green Directs
Jamie Lee Curtis is more popular than ever, riding a newfound wave of tremendous success. Now playing in theaters, her new Halloween movie has broken several box office records, exceeding all of the film's performance expectations by far. With the ending of the film leaving the door open for a sequel, the chances of Halloween 2 were hinging on the success of David Gordon Green's film. With these numbers proving there's tons of money to be made with Michael Myers, it's very likely a sequel is going to be made, and if Green returns to direct, you can count on seeing Laurie Strode again as well.

This week, Curtis spoke about reprising the role which started her acting career four full decades ago. The actress spoke at length about playing the character, now given the chance to weigh in a little further on the film's unprecedented success. Curiously, Curtis was

Alternate Halloween Ending Had a Very Different Michael Vs. Laurie Fight

Michael Myers is now back in theaters after a near-decade wait, making fans and critics both very happy. In addition to butchering the box office with ticket sales passing expectations by far, Halloween has been pulling in generally positive reviews. The film has certainly been met with some criticism, but the consensus with everyone seems to be that the ending itself was very satisfying. Now, with portions of the original script leaking on Twitter, fans can see how the ending was originally written, for better or for worse.

Before we proceed, know that we are going to be talking about the ending of Halloween, and thus, there are going to be major spoilers. Now, what happens in the theatrical release of the film is Michael Myers winds up trapped in Laurie Strode's secret cellar. The room is then filled with gas before being lit, putting the entire house in flames.

‘Halloween’ Review (Second Opinion)

Stars: Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Nick Castle, Andi Matichak, James Jude Courtney, Haluk Bilginer, Will Patton, Rhian Rees, Jefferson Hall, Toby Huss | Written by David Gordon Green, Danny McBride, Jeff Fradley | Directed by David Gordon Green

David Gordon Green and Danny McBride’s Halloween has set itself up as the forty year sequel to John Carpenters 1978 adored original, advertently, canonising itself as the one and only true sequel in a franchise that’s been in the grave more times than a skeleton and with retcons and continuity errors with each new entry in order to survive a plague of disastrous results in each predecessor, only resulting in more dumbfounded timeline confusion.

If anything Green and McBride’s film conquers the said issue of canon confusion. It ignores, somewhat fairly, the latter entries after John Carpenters’ departure, including the much underrated 1981 sequel and all Donald Pleasance as well as Curtis absentee entries.

Creepy 'Halloween' Opening Scene Was Added Late in the Game

Creepy 'Halloween' Opening Scene Was Added Late in the Game
[This story contains minor spoilers for Halloween.]

Halloween features one of the more arresting opening sequences of the year, and it only happened thanks to the tight purse strings of budget-conscious producer Blumhouse.

The scene shows a team of British podcasters (Rhian Rees and Aaron Korey) visiting Smith's Grove Sanitarium in hopes of landing an interview with Michael Myers, the famed serial killer who hasn't spoken a word since being locked up 40 years ago. The audience sees Myers chained up and standing in the sanitarium's checkerboard-patterned yard. Soon one of the podcasters holds out Myers' mask, and ...

Stars: Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Nick Castle, Andi Matichak, James Jude Courtney, Haluk Bilginer, Will Patton, Rhian Rees, Jefferson Hall, Toby Huss | Written by David Gordon Green, Danny McBride, Jeff Fradley | Directed by David Gordon Green

The original Halloween, like most people, is my favorite horror film and the franchise, despite some issues (I’m looking at you Season of the Witch) continues to have a special place in my heart. Rob Zombie tried to bring the franchise back to prominence and despite an average first try, Zombie’s sequel failed and killed the new spin on the franchise before it had a chance to take off. Now 40 years since the original, comedian Danny McBride, of Eastbound and Down fame, and crew attempt to reboot the horror franchise by ignoring any film or event that occurred after the original. It’s an interesting strategy and one that pays off.

Michael Myers Goes Unmasked in Creepy New Halloween Sneak Peek

Michael Myers Goes Unmasked in Creepy New Halloween Sneak Peek
With the new Halloween film stalking its way into theaters this weekend, Michael Myers has finally come back home. One more time, the Shape will come face to face with his longtime nemesis Laurie Strode, played by a returning Jamie Lee Curtis. Ahead of the film's official premiere, a newly-released teaser video from the film gives viewers their best look yet at Michael Myers, since the character was unmasked in the original film four full decades ago. You can take a look at the video down below.

In the clip, two true crime podcasters (Rhian Rees and Jefferson Hall) confront Michael in the insane asylum where the boogeyman has been locked up for the past forty years. They attempt to garner some kind of reaction from Myers by dangling his trademark mask, pleading for him to just take a look at it. Keeping his back to the duo, Myers slightly turns his head,

Hush Hush, Hush, Here Comes the Boogeyman… A Worthy “Halloween” Forty Years Later

When it comes to slasher movies, the gold standard is undoubtedly John Carpenter’s Halloween, something other legends and veterans in the scary movie industry openly attest to. Back in 1978, no one could predict that an independent film about a masked serial killer going after babysitters on All Hallow’s Eve would thrust itself into the proverbial stratosphere the way Halloween did and continues to with endless sequels, remakes, comic books, action figures, countless conventions and so on. It’s the franchise that keeps giving. So what better way to celebrate its 40th anniversary than for someone like independent auteur David Gordon Green (from the likes of George Washington and All the Real Girls to Pineapple Express and Stronger) to make a sequel that has some bold ideas about what direction thing should have gone in the first place? It’s a gamble that worked as he’s paid homage

Halloween Review #2: Jamie Lee Curtis Rises Above This Tired Slasher Flick

Halloween Review #2: Jamie Lee Curtis Rises Above This Tired Slasher Flick
Forty years have passed since Michael Myers made mincemeat of hapless babysitters. Halloween is the eleventh film in the franchise, but a direct sequel to the horror classic. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode, but she isn't running scared this time around. Director David Gordon Green stokes the primal fears and elemental characters that birthed the slasher genre. If only he had kept that initial creative momentum. Halloween succumbs to the same tired tropes we've seen countless times before.

Serial killer Michael Myers hasn't uttered a single word during his four decade incarceration at a sanitarium. Two intrepid true crime reporters attempt an interview before his relocation to a more secure facility. They bring his terrifying mask; hoping to elicit some kind of reaction. He doesn't move a muscle.

The reporters next stop is to interview the survivor. Laurie Strode lives secluded in the remote woods. Her house is a tactical fortress.

Movie Review – Halloween (2018)

Halloween, 2018.

Directed by David Gordon Green.

Starring Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, Virginia Gardner, Haluk Bilginer, Rhian Rees, Jefferson Hall, Toby Huss, Dylan Arnold, Miles Robbins, Drew Scheid, James Jude Courtney, and Nick Castle.

Synopsis:

Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

The act of restraint comes to mind following the conclusion to this 40 years later direct sequel to John Carpenter’s landmark masterpiece, identically named Halloween. I don’t remember the exact time offhand, but in that original slasher, psychopathic and seemingly invincible serial killer Michael Myers doesn’t actually encounter Jamie Lee Curtis’ teenage babysitter Laurie Strode until the climax, and while I have avoided the marketing for this follow-up to the best of my abilities, it is still surprising that

‘Halloween’ Review: A Slasher-Movie Reboot for the #MeToo Era

‘Halloween’ Review: A Slasher-Movie Reboot for the #MeToo Era
Want to scream bloody murder? Then the new Halloween is the trick-or-treat frightfest for you. But, first, a leap of faith is required. You have to forget that there are already nine sequels and remakes of John Carpenter’s 1978 original — thankfully, director David Gordon Green and coscreenwriters Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley pretend those lame copies never existed (no loss there). To them, Halloween 2018 is the first sequel ever to Carpenter’s horror classic. It’s been 40 years since babysitter Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) got rocked by Ptsd when

David Gordon Green puts his stamp on “Halloween” and crafts a terrific sequel

Horror sequels generally are not great, and that’s being charitable. Usually, they outright suck. So, it’s an absolute delight to see that David Gordon Green has defied the odds. Along with Danny McBride, Green has managed to honor the Halloween franchise, while also giving it a new spin. When Halloween hits theaters this week, it won’t just be another big hit for Jason Blum and Blumhouse, it’ll mark a rare cinematic achievement. Halloween, due in large part to Green and McBride, is one of the best horror sequels of all time. The competition may not be fierce, but it’s still high praise. This new version stands tall alongside the original, and that’s really saying something. Set four decades after the events of the original Halloween, this follow up erases all of the sequels that came before it, which is an excellent call. Here, Michael Myers is locked up,

New Halloween Director Wanted to Kill Dr. Loomis in the Opening Scene

New Halloween Director Wanted to Kill Dr. Loomis in the Opening Scene
With the new Halloween movie just days away from release, it's a great time to be a slasher movie fan. The film establishes a new timeline for the franchise by ignoring the events of every previous sequel in the series, only recognizing John Carpenter's 1978 original. Even that film almost saw its events revised, however, as the original opening for the new Halloween was going to retell what happened at the ending of the first movie in a huge way. Rather than having Dr. Loomis shoot Michael Myers in the end, Loomis himself would have been killed by the Shape, with a body double in place of the late Donald Pleasence.

With Carpenter himself on board as an executive producer, he was given the chance to weigh in on the story. The legendary filmmaker claims that when he heard about the idea of killing Loomis, he told director David Gordon Green
