Quirk Books
Release Date: October 3, 2017

Oh, Quirk Books, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. A seventh film necessitates a seventh adaptation in the vein of all things theatrical. I present to you, dearest reader, William Shakespeare’s The Force Doth Awaken: Star Wars Part the Seventh! Follow the tale of Rey, Finn, and Poe Dameron whilst they struggle against the darkest of dark, the First Order. The tale is old to many, but the cycle begins anew as we begin a new trilogy of storytelling that explores the loss of heroes and the search for knowledge. Comedy and tragedy both play their parts in this play adapted by Ian Doescher, tugging upon both our hearts and emotions alike.

Happy Death Day review

Happy Death Day
Directed by Christopher Landon
Written by Scott Lobdell
Starring Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine, Charles Aitken, Laura Clifton, Rob Mello
Blumhouse Productions
Rated R | 96 Minutes
Release Date: October 13, 2017

If you’ve watched the trailer for Happy Death Day, then you know exactly what you are walking into. The writer and director make no effort to hide their influences, to the point of literally name-dropping Groundhog Day and Bill Murray IN the movie. One character’s last name is even credited as “Spengler” (Harold Ramis was Egon Spengler in Ghostbusters). That said, if you’re gonna walk the line between parody and homage, you better be careful and to their credit, writer Scott Lobdell and director Christopher Landon do a pretty great job. In order for this to work, like Groundhog Day, the lead character and actor playing them has to be convincing. While I’m not comparing Happy Death Day‘s Jessica Rothe to Bill Murray, she does do one hell of a job here and the results are a perfect little 95-minute meta-slasher film right in time for Halloween.

All Episodes Of ‘Futurama’ Coming To Hulu This Month

Futurama

Though it wasn’t listed on the lineup of things coming to and leaving this month, Hulu has a surprise for its subscribers. Coming soon to the streaming service (soon like today) is Futurama. Every single episode, including the four straight-to-video movies which helped to bring the beloved animated series back to life in 2010.

But while the news will no doubt be exciting to some, it’s not at all surprising. Recently many Netflix subscribers—many of whom routinely fell asleep to episodes each night—were outraged to discover that they would not be renewing their contract with FOX, meaning many shows including Futurama would be disappearing. It was assumed at the time that the show would end up on Hulu, because FOX is a part owner there and it only made sense. And so here we are.

You can find the full announcement below.

A Definitive Ranking Of The ‘Friday The 13th’ Franchise

Friday The 13th Film ranking

The stars of horror aligned and today is Friday the 13th… in October. While Michael Myers owns the month, this is Jason Voorhees’ day. The Friday the 13th franchise goes back to 1980, when Sean S. Cunningham directed the original as a slasher ripoff of John Carpenter’s Halloween. Jason made his debut at the very end in one of horror’s legit greatest jump scares. His legend grew instantly, and by decade’s end, he was 8 (!) films deep. Now nearly 40 years later, the franchise has produced 10 films, 1 crossover, 1 remake, and a short-lived TV series… and damned if that doesn’t add up to 13! So in honor of Friday the 13th, we’re going to rank them from worst to first. Harry Manfredini … HIT THE MUSIC!
