Karen Gillan & Katee Sackhoff’s Oculus Might Be The Most Horrifying Film Ever

Ok, maybe not ever, ever but holy crap, this looks scary as hell. And that makes me want to see it even more. And look at Karen Gillan go with her American accent! (Here’s the first trailer if you missed it.)

A Delicious New Trailer For Hannibal Season 2

Our resident Hannibal expert is Rebecca but I have to say, after seeing the first trailer for Hannibal and now this second one, I’m going to have to put the series on my watch list. Plus, my X-Files rewatch is almost over and I’ll need my Gillian Anderson fix.

A Coward’s Search For The Perfect Halloween Game

Ah, Halloween! My favorite holiday! Not a likely favorite for a confessed scaredy-cat like myself, but October 31 is the one day of the year in which I embrace the dark and creepy. I’ve spent the past two and a half years living in a Halloween-less country, but this year, I’m in luck. I’m stateside for several weeks, serendipitously here in time for pumpkin carving and costume making. I’m feeling celebratory, and what better way to get in the mood than by playing a spooky game?

But what to play? That’s a tough question. Join me now as I peruse my Steam library, in search of the perfect Halloween game.

6 Book Covers From The Guillermo del Toro-Curated Penguin Classics Horror Series

Entertainment Weekly revealed the covers to a fun project from Guillermo del Toro I was unaware of (he’s got about a thousand going at once so this doesn’t surprise me). As we all know very well, del Toro is a huge horror fan so he teamed up with Penguin Classics to produce a set of his favorite horror stories! EW says the covers are all designed and illustrated by Penguin Art Director Paul Buckley and del Toro will be writing introductions for each. The titles should be available starting later this month.

A Bravest Warriors Short To Tide You Over Until Season 2


The 11 episode first season of Bravest Warriors concluded in early March, but yesterday Cartoon Hangover released a new short featuring the quartet of futuristic crime fighters to help kick off YouTube’s Geek Week. “Moo-phobia,” sadly, does not feature CatBug, but is still an entertaining addition to the list of Bravest Warriors episodes. If you haven’t watched the show, which could best be described as Adventure Time, in space, with no censors, the entire first season is available on the Cartoon Hangover Youtube channel.

Pacific Rim Explains How Robots Work, We Nod

A good friend of mine, who is equally excited for Pacific Rim as I am, pointed out that the Jaeger pilot system doesn’t exactly make a whole lot of sense: it hardly seems like two pilots who have to maintain a very deep emotional link would actually be the most efficient solution to the problem. However, we don’t care, because it’s the rare plot device that actually makes the story more compelling than it complicates things. It’s a brilliant literal core of emotion at the heart of a literal giant, mindless metal beast.

So metal. So meta.

UN’s Moratorium on Killer Robots Sounds Funny; Is Actually Horrifying

A United Nations Human Rights Commission report out this week examines the current technological state of autonomous weapons. Not automatic weapons, to be clear: autonomous weapons. Computerized weapons that detect targets automatically and do not need the intervention of human input to dispense lethal force.

Ha ha ha, I mean, come on, it’s not like we have those already, right? And we’re certainly not about to start building the Terminator or anything like it, right? Ha? Heh? Heh. No, seriously, please refute the things I have just said.

This Mouth is an Eye, Your Argument is Invalid [Unsettling Makeup Effects]

Sandra Holmbom is no stranger to the surreal makeup look. Just check out her Timon (yes, from The Lion King). But this one certainly caught our eye.

Or maybe our lips. Check out another shot of it below, this time with teeth, because this the internet and uncanny things live here.

First Monsters University TV Spot Is a Spot-On Commercial for… Monsters University. [VIDEO]

I’m 99.5% sure I’ve seen this first TV spot for Monsters University, the prequel to Monsters, Inc. before—maybe at a screening of The Hobbit? If so, it was only at the first screening. I’ve seen it twice since, and it didn’t play either time. If I see the trailers for The Host, Oblivion, or After Earth one more time I’m going to snap. I’d rather just watch this 30 seconds of glorious Pixar monsters several times in a row instead.
