(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: As an uncivilized swine who barely has enough time to keep up with weekly cinema releases, let other mediums of storytelling, Chris has informed me that some of my favorite horror films are actually based on written literature. I didn’t believe him at first, but some quick researching proves he’s actually right! Who knew books could be good for something besides kindling for campfires? In any case, in honor of some little movie called Drowsy Physician or something, here are a few rad horror movies based on authored horror you can stream right now! 

Chris: Happy Doctor Sleep month! Yes, it’s time for yet another Stephen King adaptation – this time adapted from his sequel to The Shining. In honor of this particular literary horror adaptation, Matt and I are turning to the wild world of horror books for this week’s Now Scream This! Too lazy to read a book? Don’t worry! There are movies!

Matt: Halloween is so close I can *taste* and wow, it tastes rank. How else would rotten zombie flesh, newt eyes, and intestinal slasher trophies tickle your taste buds? There’s no deception there, but sometimes when seeking spooky October cinema, we’re tricked by unassuming titles or treated to hidden gems. In the spirit of finding something more palatable for y’alls seasonal parties, Chris and myself are going to spotlight some tricky winners and horrific treats to watch.

Chris: October feels like it’s flown by, but I hope you’ve been enjoying it, boils and ghouls. As Halloween approaches, Matt and I have put together a list of cinematic tricks and treats sweeter than any candy apple and chewier than a handful of candy corn. So put on your full Dracula costume, grab your rubber skeleton mask, and get ready to scream your face off!  Read More »

Horror Movies Streaming 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: With October’s howl now at full volume, Chris and I have so many different weekly themes to choose from! Maybe “Werewolf Wonders,” or “Sleepover Slashics,” or – well, let me rephrase that. If Chris and I had the time to follow such possible themes, we’d have a bounty to choose from. Unfortunately, we are busy little beavers inundated by Halloween articles on tight deadlines so you’re getting another grab bag! BE THANKFUL FOR WHAT YOU GET, GREEDY PIGGIES.

Chris: What do we have here? Why, a whole bunch of streaming horror! Just for you! Aren’t you lucky? In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve also been writing about one streaming horror movie a day, every day, this month in honor of Halloween. You can read every entry so far here. With that, and our latest column, I’m giving you a ton of options for Halloween season, folks. You’re welcome.

2019 Emmys Speeches

Last night brought the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards to FOX, and well, we’re just glad that the awards and acceptance speeches were remarkable, because the broadcast of television’s biggest night wasn’t super enjoyable. Without a host, the show felt nearly lifeless, and the few moments of entertainment came from a handful of presenters and the wonderful, consistent, and silly presence of Thomas Lennon. But we’ll get to that later.

Despite the disappointing broadcast of the 2019 Emmys last night, there were still some highlights to be found from the show, especially from the speeches, not to mention a few surprises among the award recipients, and several television records broken and set. So let’s get down to the finer points of the 2019 Emmys broadcast from last night. Read More »

Now Scream This

(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: Every September, there exists a genre film festival mecca called Fantastic Fest. I’ve been lucky enough to attend for four of the last five years, soon to be five of the last six. Mr. Evangelista is new to Austin’s most fantastic excursion, but the time has finally come. This year, ‘dem “Now Scream This” boys are taking down Fantastic Fest together. We’ve already conquered New Orleans, Austin’s up next. Why not honor some past festival favorites now streaming as a primer? 

Chris: This marks my first year attending Fantastic Fest, and I honestly don’t know what to expect (other than consuming dangerous amounts of alcohol). So to help get into the spirit, Matt and I have combed through the Fantastic Fest history to come up with some highlights that played at the fest.

Horror Movies to Watch Before It Chapter Two

(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: With the release of It Chapter 2 next weekend, Chris and I are tackling horror films based on common phobias. Trigger warning and all that. Not specifically just clowns, either. I’ll leave Chris to recommend any eight-legged scare flicks, because yes, even the fearless Matt Donato has a phobia or two. Everyone’s got their own worst nightmare; mine happens to involve creepy crawlies of a particular kind.

Chris: What scares you? If you’re like me, the answer is: everything. But there are a handful of horror films that hone in on very specific fears, with It and the upcoming It Chapter Two being two of the most high-profile examples. With the impending It Chapter Two release, Matt and I have delved into films that exploit certain phobias. So watch out!  Read More »

Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Hotel

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge has been open at Disneyland for nearly two months now, and the Star Wars expansion at Disney World opens in just a few days. But that’s just the beginning of the Disney theme park efforts to whisk you off to a galaxy far, far away.

Coming soon to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida is the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Galactic Starcruiser hotel, allowing guests of Disney resorts the experience of staying in their very own Star Wars hotel room aboard a ship called the Halcyon, part of the Chandrila Star Line. Before the weekend, we got a look at the model depicting the ship that fans will be “aboard” for their Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge hotel experience, and now we have even more details on the continued expansion at Disney theme parks. Find out what we learned below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

When you think of Disney Parks, the first things that come to mind are probably staples of The Magic Kingdom: rides like The Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the trinity of Mountains (Space, Splash, and Big Thunder). But it’s rare to find someone who initially conjures up imagery of anything from Epcot, the Walt Disney World park that’s spent decades struggling to define itself. But with Disney parks chairman Bob Chapek recently announcing that the next generation of that park would become “more Disney” than the current iteration, that long struggle may be coming to an end.

At today’s Epcot D23 presentation, Chapek took the stage and gave us some more insight into the renovations that are planned for the park. Here’s what we learned. Read More »
