Here's what's coming to Amazon Prime in February Here's what's coming to Amazon Prime in February

Netflix hopes that perhaps you may be able to help solve some Unsolved Mysteries Netflix hopes that perhaps you may be able to help solve some Unsolved Mysteries

What you are about to see is a news broadcast (sorta): Netflix is making new Unsolved Mysteries episodes with the bygone nightmare factory’s original creators. It’s a shock it didn’t happen sooner, to be honest, what with the resurrection of cold cases being this generation’s pastime.

In some very 2019 news, pop stars Grimes (née Claire Boucher) and Azealia Banks have been subpoenaed in the ongoing lawsuit over Elon Musk’s bad tweet. You remember the one: In August, he announced that he might be taking Tesla private at $420 a share, a figure that turned out to be a wildly miscalculated weed joke.…

Sony’s upcoming Ghostbusters sequel is shellacked in a slimy gauze of secrecy, despite the nascent project already having a cryptic teaser. Just how will Jason Reitman’s vision will align with the one his dad, Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman? How much time has passed? Is the EPA still bad? And, perhaps most…

Fyre Festival's graphic designer left the country because "nobody abroad knows about Fyre" Fyre Festival's graphic designer left the country because "nobody abroad knows about Fyre"

There’s some palpable tension between Netflix and Hulu over their competing Fyre Festival documentaries, with both parties decrying the ethical implications of the other’s approach. The good news, however, is that, ethics aside, both are compelling, thoughtful, and funny as hell.

We’re in the midst of the longest government shutdown in history and, with no end in sight, the White House is on the verge of asking federal employees to head back to work without pay.

Rob Zombie's Devil’s Rejects sequel is done filming and apparently "chockablock with gratuitous violence" Rob Zombie's Devil’s Rejects sequel is done filming and apparently "chockablock with gratuitous violence"

It was the bloodthirsty, Leatherfacian Firefly family of 2003’s House of 1000 Corpses that introduced us to the filmmaking of Rob Zombie, but it was its sequel, 2005's The Devil’s Rejects, that had us thinking he may actually be good at it. Since then, he’s had some highs (The Lords Of Salem), some lows (Halloween),…

Last year, he composed the score for David Gordon Green’s box office-breaking Halloween and spoke candidly about potential reboots of They Live and Big…

SyFy cancels horror anthology Channel Zero, depriving us of our nightmares SyFy cancels horror anthology Channel Zero, depriving us of our nightmares

Channel Zero got off to a shaky start, but SyFy’s creepypasta anthology series grew eerier and more resonant with each season.

Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche are space trash in the first trailer for Claire Denis' High Life

Audiences fled the theater in droves when Claire Denis’ High Life, the French filmmaker’s English-language debut, premiered at 2018's Toronto International Film Festival. Our own A.A.
