the twilight zone review

You’re traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That’s the signpost up ahead—your next stop, The Twilight Zone, rebooted by Jordan Peele.

Riding a wave of acclaim left over from his masterful Get Out, and furthered by his recent Us, Peele brings Rod Serling‘s brilliant parable-infused sci-fi series into the 21st century. And what a perfect time it is for this show. Despite what some may have you believe, Serling’s Twilight Zone was always political, and Peele and company aren’t afraid to lean heavily into that. The end result is something exciting and vibrant, loaded with a cavalcade of stellar actors in colorful, memorable roles. It doesn’t always work, but when it does, The Twilight Zone is exquisite.

The Humans movie

Hollywood mega-producer Scott Rudin is one of the few people who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award (EGOT), and he’s arguably as well-known for his theater work as he is for his movies. Now he’s combining those two mediums and producing a film adaptation of the Broadway play The Humans, and he’s secured an excellent cast to star. Richard Jenkins (The Shape of Water), Amy Schumer (Trainwreck), Steven Yeun (Burning, The Walking Dead), and more are on board. Keep reading to learn about the story and who else is involved.

weird city trailer

Jordan Peele may be horror’s new favorite son, but the ever-busy writer/producer/director is finding ways to acknowledge his comedy roots. Jordan Peele and former Key & Peele writer Charlie Sanders teamed up to create the YouTube Premium series Weird City, a sci-fi anthology that brings the funny to futuristic dystopias. Set in a society where classes are starkly divided by the haves and have-nots, labeled in this case as “Above the Line” and “Below the Line,” Weird City stars LeVar Burton as a mad scientist who introduces all kinds of bizarre gadgets to better optimize love and life — to hilarious results according to the Weird City trailer.

Mayhem trailer

Remember The Belko Experiment? It came out earlier this year and was a B-movie set in an office building about employees who were forced to kill each other at the behest of a mysterious voice who locked them inside. I found that film to be an ugly and largely pointless exercise in brutality, but if that didn’t scratch your itch for office-set murder movies, perhaps Mayhem, the newest film from director Joe Lynch (Everly), will be more up your alley. It certainly looks like it’s a hell of a lot more fun. Check out a couple of Mayhem trailers below.
