Over the past five years, I have gotten sucked up in the seasonal haunted maze phenomenon and you may have already read my reports from the events at Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights and Knotts Scary Farm here.

Stranger Things star David Harbour became a viral sensation when he followed through on a promise to officiate a couple’s wedding in full wardrobe as Chief Hopper if a tweet requesting his presence racked up 125,000 retweets. But now he’s made another promise to one fan that would make for one hellacious wedding ceremony.
Spencer Perry is the managing editor of ComingSoon.net, and he’s a good friend of some of us here at /Film. He’s also engaged to be married, and when David Harbour recently put out the call for new retweet challenges, Spencer asked the actor how many retweets it would take for him to officiate the wedding dressed in full Hellboy make-up and gear. Well, Harbour has responded, and it’s a tall order, but it’s not impossible if the internet comes together to make this incredible event happen.

Winterfell is opening its doors to the masses. Finally, we unwashed peasants can traverse the great halls of Winterfell and the dank hallways of Castle Black with the launch of Game of Thrones Legacy, a tourist experience that opens the Northern Ireland sets of Game of Thrones to tourists. The Legacy experience will launch in 2019, which gives you ample time before the final season of Game of Thrones premieres sometime in spring 2019.
But, if you can’t afford a ticket to Ireland right at this moment, there’s another Game of Thrones-related purchase you can make while biding your time for the eighth and final season: more Funko Pops, including one of A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin. Maybe if you yell at his toy, he’ll write faster.

Many years ago, human beings inserted black rectangles into giant whirring boxes, all for the sake of entertainment. Those were the days of VHS, a format that’s essentially extinct now thanks to the advent of DVD and Blu-ray. While the quality of those later mediums is far superior, a certain nostalgia still swirls around VHS. That’s where Alamo Drafthouse’s new VHStival comes in. The event “celebrates the glory of the enduring and iconic video format with screenings, special appearances, and analog-driven events.”
