Shudder’s Creepshow series is coming back just in time for Halloween with an animated special. Our first official glimpse of the special arrived today in the form of a trailer teasing plenty of cartoony terror in the form of adaptations of stories from Stephen King and Joe Hill (who just happens to be Stephen King’s son, making this special a bit of a family affair).

Joe Manganiello (Magic Mike) appeared briefly in a post-credits scene of Justice League back in 2017, playing a menacing mercenary named Deathstroke. His appearance was designed to set up a sequel and maybe even a solo spin-off movie, but so far, neither one has happened.
But now Manganiello is getting another shot at wearing the character’s eyepatch. A new report says he will be a part of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the four-episode HBO Max series which will consist of footage Snyder shot the first time around, as well as additional photography that’s taking place right now.

(Welcome to Now Scream This, a column where horror experts Chris Evangelista and Matt Donato tell you what scary, spooky, and spine-tingling movies are streaming and where you can watch them.)
Matt: I know what you’re thinking. “Now Scream This” does Halloween. Another streaming horror recommendation column highlights all the genre options already pointed out on every other entertainment website across the web-o-sphere. Don’t get me wrong! Shudder is crushing their October content drops with titles like Scare Me and The Mortuary Collection. Netflix is pumping out two new releases a week, one of which, Vampires Vs. The Bronx, deserves way more love. That said? We’re focusing our spooky-scary column on an even more underserved medium: horror shorts.
Chris: I love a good short horror film. There’s something fun about a quick, concise attempt at creating something scary that I just can’t resist, and I know I’m not alone. After all, Hollywood seems to be constantly mining short films for features. Lights Out, Saw, Mama, and more all originated as shorts. So while we usually try to highlight features around these parts, we’ve decided to give you a treat for Halloween season and gather up some horror shorts you can watch right now. Right here. You don’t even have to click off the page! In fact, you should never click off the page. Stay here forever. Click on some ads. Happy Halloween!

Margot Robbie already has quite the reputation as a big screen criminal thanks to her fantastic portrayal of The Joker’s ex-girlfriend, the Clown Princess of Crime, Harley freakin’ Quinn. But this fall, Paramount Pictures has her on the run from the law in a very different kind of movie.

“I never do this,” Glen Keane muses as he swivels his laptop around his office at Netflix, filled with stacks of drawings and doodles — half thought-out ideas that the legendary animator had while working on his feature directorial debut Over the Moon.
Through the grainy Zoom video screen I can see reams of sheets that are hung around the room. Some of them storyboards that Keane has drawn for Over the Moon (“I drew more for this movie than I did for The Little Mermaid,” he remarks dryly), others snapshots of people and life in the Chinese water town of Wuzhen, which Keane and his team visited as part of their research into the China-set animated film that reimagines the myth of Chang’e, the goddess of the moon. It was important to Keane that the town where the film’s young protagonist, Fei Fei, lives felt as real as the town that he visited, filled with savory dishes or the bustling sound of a close-knit town.
“Everything you feel, and smell, and taste, and touch, and see — that’s what I want to share,” Keane says.

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm is available on Amazon Prime right now, and the movie is replete with plenty of outrageous interactions with unsuspecting members of the American public. With a movie like this, where countless hours of footage is shot, there are many scenes that hit the cutting room floor.

Mindhunter, one of the very best shows Netflix has ever produced, might indeed be over. We’ve heard rumblings of this ever since the second season ended. The cast members of the David Fincher-produced series were released from their contracts after season 2, and there’s been very little news since then. Now, Fincher is suggesting the show is probably over, or, at the very least, on hold – and will remain on hold for the foreseeable future.

Before Borat Subsequent Moviefilm even arrived on Amazon, it was making headlines.
