10 Unintentionally Terrifying Kids Movies I Still Haven’t Recovered From

Seriously, I think the '80s were trying to kill me.

There’s an endless supply of titles meant to unsettle adults, but when I was younger, some of the movies that horrified me the most weren’t horror movies at all. Here are 10 films that (mostly) unintentionally terrified me as a kid.

Summer baes, drifting away...

It’s hard to believe that summer is nearly over. It’s been a scorcher, and I’m not even talking about the weather: this season has blessed us with some serious sci-fi baes who have captured our attention and deserve some recognition for their other-worldly baeness.

Wynonna Earp Recap: Episode 13, “I Walk the Line”

After just a deluge of heartache, Wynonna Earp and its fans have really been the beacon on the horizon of what queer inclusive and female fronted shows and fandom can be. I know fans are nervous about its chances for renewal. The show’s ratings have been less than what we would have hoped for, but a passionate and dedicated fanbase sure has made this little Canadian show hard to ignore.

Wynonna Earp Recap: “House of Memories”

This penultimate episode of Wynonna Earp had more sweet, sweet action than BoBo’s on 25 cent Buffalo wing night. I mean it had love triangles, sweet lady kissing, knives, cocktail dresses, CHAMPAGNE, twisted sisters and so much more. After a thoroughly enjoyable first season (where’s the renewal, Syfy?), this episode really brought a sense of what this show has become and what it has the potential to be—which is freaking epic.

Wynonna Earp Recap: Episode 11, “Landslide”

We’ve all had those awkward family moments, haven’t we? Take Wynonna and Waverly. They’ve been minding their own business, sending Revenants back to hell, and all of a sudden Wy runs into her long lost (and supposedly dead) sister in a cult compound. Oh, and supposedly dead sister doesn’t remember her past! AND she can use her great-great granddaddy’s magic gun, which is a thing that has been defining Wy as of late. Can’t wait for Canadian Thanksgiving!

Hear ye, hear ye, it’s the episode all you thirsty shippers have been waiting for. Multiple ships too. What have we done to deserve such a blessing? Speaking of thirsty, there’s also a lot of salt in this episode, and the return of the Stone Witch. Grab your tasers, because it’s on.

Wynonna Earp Recap: Episode 8, “Two Faced Jack”

When we last saw Wynonna and Haught, they were heading out to have delicious pancakes and talk smack about demons. However, some massive buzzkill has evidently captured them, as Doc deduces from Haught’s bloody squad care and two missing badass ladies. Well, anyone could really deduce that something bad happened, but we’ll give Doc this one.

Wynonna Earp Recap: Episode 7, “Walking After Midnight”

We are halfway through Wynonna Earp’s first season, and IMHO this was the best episode to date. That certainly bodes well for the rest of the season, as the show has more than found its footing and is busy kicking ass and taking names.

Wynonna Earp Recap: Episode 6, “Constant Cravings”

You have to love an episode named after famous Canadian k.d. lang’s song of love and longing, “Constant Craving.” Lang is from Alberta, which is also where Wynonna Earp is filmed. (Speaking of Alberta, lets send some collective good vibes to the people of Ft. McMurray, who are experiencing a forest fire of catastrophic proportions.)

Wynonna Earp Recap: Episode 5, “Digging Up Bones”

We’ve known that Wynonna has been haunted by the kidnapping and murder of her sister, Willa, but it looks like all this death and terror is starting to take a toll on Wynonna’s subconscious. In her dream, she’s dressed as Willa, and essentially being told she’s a poor substitute for the actual heir, by Willa’s ghost. […]

Interview: Showrunner Emily Andras on Wynonna Earp and Why Shying Away From Representation Is BS

Emily Andras, the showrunner and executive producer of the hot new SyFy show Wynonna Earp, sat down to chat with us about the multi-genre show that already has fans all atwitter (and a Twitter). The show is led by some pretty badass ladies and is queer-inclusive, something Andras is known for. We spoke to her about bringing Wynonna from the comic book to the small screen, the rise in female fronted shows, and how tropes have suddenly come under much more scrutiny.

Wynonna Earp Recap: Episode 4, “The Blade”

When is an apology too late? Can withholding forgiveness be harmful? This week’s Wynonna Earp explores this by introducing us to a particularly creepy Revenant of the Week—one who punishes people for their lack of ability to receive forgiveness. Talk about a nightmare. But first, let's get our Doc Holliday on.

Wynonna Earp Recap: Episode 3, “Leavin’ on Your Mind”

Purgatory can be a hell of a place. The third episode of Wynonna Earp really brings the fire, and I’m not talking about the smoldering little pits that open up to swallow up unlucky Revenants.

Wynonna Earp Is the Heroine We Need (and Deserve), Especially Right Now

It’s been a hell of a couple of months for women on TV. Queer female characters have been getting killed off at an alarming rate, which spawned a fandom revolution and raised a lot of money for a great cause. Wonderful, rich characters like Abbie on Sleepy Hollow have been fridged to further the stories of their male counterparts. Frankly, it’s been really depressing to be a TV fan as of late.

The Resurgence of Buffy the Vampire Slayer

It’s been almost 20 years since Buffy Summers slew her first vampire and changed the way we viewed female characters forever. As I write this, I can look up and see the Buffy prints and figures that inspire me daily to work hard, love deeply, and never be afraid to embrace my cookie dough-ness. Buffy has played a big role in my life for nearly two decades, and unlike many other shows of its era, Buffy refuses to fade away.

Seeing Star Wars Through Someone Else’s Eyes With The Force Awakens First

In the months and weeks leading up to the release of The Force Awakens, the excitement on social media (where I spend waaaaay too much time) was palpable. In fact, everywhere you looked in stores, on television, and around the water cooler, everyone was talking about Star Wars. Well, except for one place: my house.
