Toronto Film Review: ‘The Obituary of Tunde Johnson’

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Obituary of Tunde Johnson’
Eighteen-year-old Tunde Johnson (Steven Silver) isn’t consciously able to explain why he wakes up gasping every day. Every day is the same day, May 28, and every night, he’s murdered by the cops and “The Obituary of Tunde Johnson” is read anew: an upper-middle class, gay high schooler destined to be shot by jumpy officers who don’t know him at all. The interesting crinkle in Ali LeRoi’s coiling drama is that (Besides, notes LeRoi, the first time he dies, he does everything perfectly, placing both hands visibly on the wheel as though he’s been expecting danger his whole life.)

Instead, LeRoi (who created the TV series “Everybody Hates Chris”) and screenwriter Stanley Kalu chooses to wipe the majority of his memories, freeing Tunde to spend this slick, chillwave-injected film embracing life instead of dodging death. But death is coming from someone’s nervous trigger fingers and

Into the Dark: Exclusive First Look at Next Episode of Hulu Horror Movie Series

Alec Bojalad Oct 25, 2018

Hulu's Into the Dark debuts its second episode of their horror franchise, Flesh & Blood, on November 2. Here is a first look.

Hulu's collaboration with Blumhouse, Into the Dark, is yet another interesting step in the evolution of television and the convergence of media in general.

This is a first look at Into the Dark episode 2...but can something that arrives monthly and that is completely unrelated to its other "episodes" in anything other than tone really be called an episode? Or is it a movie? Into the Dark's October debut feature, "The Body," was 80 minutes after all.

Into the Dark will run for 12 months and feature a new horror or horror-adjacent installment every month loosely based on a holiday within that month. October's "The Body" was about a contract killer on Halloween night. Its November follow-up, "Flesh & Blood," will debut on November 2 and
