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 »

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 »

Here’s what we know about the new attraction so far. Read More »

marvel web d23

It appears that even though Spider-Man may no longer appear in future Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, the movies may be spinning a WEB of their own without him. WEB, aka the Worldwide Engineering Brigade, is a part of Disney’s theme park narrative that’s tied in to Avengers Campus, the new Marvel-themed land coming to Disney’s California Adventure and Disneyland Paris. WEB is a fictional company within the parks that was created by Tony Stark, and during today’s D23 presentation, it was revealed that the organization is going to be incorporated into upcoming comics and movies.

Get the details on that below, and check out some new concept art from the Spider-Man attraction, Pym Kitchen, and more.

Rise of the Resistance footage

With Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run as the only ride in Disney’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge so far, the new Star Wars-themed expansion has been impressive, but still feels a bit incomplete. But soon, guests will be able to step onto Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, a massive dark ride with action that’s set in between The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker.

At this morning’s D23 presentation, Disney parks chairman Bob Chapek unveiled a new Galaxy’s Edge commercial that contains tons of new Rise of the Resistance footage, and the official video has been released online. Check it out below.
