7 Totally Lame Movie Sequel Plot Twists

Entertainment Weekly’s big new cover story on the upcoming Terminator: Genisys (yes, that’s actually spelling it, this is not a gag) has got fans of the series plenty riled up — and for good reason. It seems that the geniuses behind the flick have gone and screwed up the story’s mythology in a pretty major way, creating an epic “ret-con”/continuity issue that would be shocking, were it not so common among sequels to beloved movies. You’ll find the spoiler after the jump, along with a few other examples of sequels that asked us to swallow some pretty strange reveals. … Read More

50 Visually Stunning Horror Movies for Twisted Aesthetes

Lumbering weirdos in hockey masks and pizza-faced serial killers have their place in the world of horror, but body-count movies can quickly wear out their welcome if you aren’t a slasher-film lover.

Flavorwire Premiere: Orenda Fink Salutes Hitchcock, Lynch, and Kubrick in “This Is a Part of Something Greater” Video

The latest clip from Orenda Fink’s third album, this summer’s Blue Dream, may be the scariest music video you see this year. Not because it’s unthinkably disturbing like a Die Antwoord video or anything, but because you may find yourself recalling the first time you hid under a blanket while watching the most iconic horror thrillers ever made. Fink, who rose to fame as one half of Azure Ray, plays both the victims and their tormentors in the clip, paying shot-for-shot homage to Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, David Cronenberg’s Videodrome, David Lynch’s Blue Velvet, and Tobe Hooper’s Poltergeist along the way. Flavorwire is pleased to premiere the “This Is a Part of Something Greater” video below, just in time for Halloween. … Read More

Let’s Not Break Our Arms Patting Marvel on the Back For “Diversity”

Tuesday morning, a packed house of fans, filmmakers, actors, and media gathered at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood for a mysterious “event” hosted by Marvel Studios. But as the event began, the mystery evaporated: studio president Kevin Feige was there to announce the entire slate for Marvel’s “Phase 3,” the presumed blockbusters that will roll out following next summer’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. In many ways, it was the very essence of hype: an advertising event at which a throng of superfans freaked out over dates and title fonts. But it was a morning of mostly good news — particularly with regards to expanding representation in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which has to this point been dominated by straight white guys. The only question is, did they go far enough? … Read More
