Anticipated Hulu Originals will also premiere this coming month. Season 2 of “Light as a Feather” will launch on the streamer on Oct. 4, while “Looking for Alaska,” based on John Green’s best-selling novel of the same name, will premiere on Oct. 18.

Hulu in October: Here’s Everything Coming and Going

Hulu in October: Here’s Everything Coming and Going
Spooky season is upon us, and Hulu is getting into the spirit with a number of horror or Halloween-themed offerings on its October line-up.

Along with Hulu originals like the horror anthology “Into the Dark” and the second season of Stephen King’s “Castle Rock,” the streamer is also offering films from the “Saw,” “Blade” and “Hellraiser” franchises beginning next month. For the more faint of heart, Hulu is also offering three seasons of Food Network’s “Halloween Wars” and the surely adorable “Kids Halloween Baking Championship.”

Not specifically Halloween-themed, but potentially haunting: All six seasons of the original run of “The Hills” will be available to stream on Oct. 1 for those looking to revisit the halcyon days of reality television and questionable late-aughts fashion.

Rob Zombie Talks ‘Miserable’ Studio Projects, Naked Shoots and (Yes) Robert Altman (Guest Blog)

Rob Zombie Talks ‘Miserable’ Studio Projects, Naked Shoots and (Yes) Robert Altman (Guest Blog)
Rock star turned horror film auteur Rob Zombie this month releases “3 From Hell,” the third in a trilogy that started with 2003’s “House of 1,000 Corpses” and continued with 2005’s “The Devil’s Rejects.”

I’ve appeared in several Zombie films over the years, including playing the warden in “3 From Hell” — which continues the story of the murderous backwoods Firefly family.

And I sat down with Zombie to talk about his work and what has influenced him.

As a kid, what kind of films did you like? Was it always horror?

It was everything. I was media obsessed. I would collect TV Guide for decades and sometimes I’ll go back and look at them. I would first grab the TV Guide, I’d circle everything I was going to watch for the week, which was basically everything. But back then, when you look at it there were so few channels.

Post-TIFF, the Best Actress Oscar Race Is Scarlett Johansson v. Renée Zellweger

Post-TIFF, the Best Actress Oscar Race Is Scarlett Johansson v. Renée  Zellweger
The Toronto International Film Festival gives, and takes away. Toronto’s notoriously friendly audiences are not to be trusted entirely — with the exception of the People’s Choice Award, which has gone to such Best Picture winners as “Chariots of Fire,” “American Beauty,” “Slumdog Millionaire,” “The King’s Speech,” “12 Years a Slave,” and “Green Book.”

So when TIFF audiences give a standing ovation, you have to figure out what it means. They enthusiastically applauded Netflix’s “Marriage Story” with Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson on hand, which continues to build momentum from Venice to Telluride and Toronto, followed by New York, where it will play like gangbusters on its home turf. (It’s sitting at 96 on Metacritic.)

Never-nominated Johansson is duking it out in the Best Actress race with thrice-nominated Oscar-winner Renée Zellweger (“Cold Mountain”), who channels emotional wreck Judy Garland at the end of her tragic life in “Judy.

Which lead actress is most in need of overdue Oscar attention? Saoirse Ronan, Scarlett Johansson or Alfre Woodard? [Poll]
A quintet of leading ladies listed on Gold Derby’s combined odds list of Academy Award predictions all qualify as being overdue for a Oscar statuette. Most have been nominated before while one former vampire lover has never been in the running. Here, in order of their current placement among lead actress contenders on the site, are those who might go on to give a speech at the ceremony on Feb. 9, 2020.

1. Saoirse Ronan, “Little Women”: The Irish actress follows in the bookish Civil War-era footsteps of Katharine Hepburn, June Allyson and Winona Ryder — the actresses who most notably played Jo, the headstrong and ambitious March sister — in the 1933, 1949 and 1994 big-screen adaptations of Louisa May Alcott’s novel “Little Women.” Ryder was nominated for Lead Actress and Ronan just might do the same. She has been nominated for a supporting Oscar as a spiteful teen in 2007’s “Atonement” followed by

‘The Naked Kiss’ Blu-ray Review (Criterion)

  • Nerdly
Stars: Constance Towers, Antony Eisley, Michael Dante, Virginia Grey, Patsy Kelly | Written and Directed by Samuel Fuller

The Naked Kiss opens with a fight. And Kelly (Constance Towers) – an experienced escort reclaiming her money from a punter – will never stop fighting. Just for one night it looks like she’s left her worst times behind, as she arrives in Grantville, a small town where no one knows her name. But then she discovers her first customer, Griff (Antony Eisley), is a local policeman.

But Kelly is looking for a life more meaningful. So, she finds herself in a hospital for disabled children. She’s a natural. The kids love her. Her colleagues love her. But Griff still can’t trust her – especially when she falls for his enormously wealthy best bud,

‘Shock Corridor’ Blu-ray Review (Criterion)

  • Nerdly
Starring: Peter Breck, Constance Towers, Larry Tucker, Gene Evans, Hari Rhodes, James Best | Written and Directed by Samuel Fuller

The prolific Samuel Fuller carved a niche – or perhaps a gutter – in making exploitation shockers just outside the Hollywood studio system. His had an ability to elevate trash material to something approaching art. Writer and producer on most of his movies, he undoubtedly wielded enough control to be regarded as an auteur.

He also had high-minded ideas. Shock Corridor opens and closes with a quote from the controversial Greek tragedian Euripides: “Whom God wishes to destroy He first makes mad.” Sandwiched between is an absurd thriller, nonsensical and enjoyable and almost certainly allegorical.

Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island saw a detective enter a mental asylum to solve a case. Here, the guy going deep is a Pulitzer-pursuing journalist named Johnny (Peter Breck), who’s there to solve the murder of a man named Sloan.

The 50 Foot Art of Reynold Brown

Reynold Brown: A Life in Pictures

by Daniel Zimmer and David J. Hornung

2009, The Illustrated Press, Hardcover, 224pp. ,$39.95 – 2017, Expanded version

With the publication of an expanded edition of Reynold Brown: A Life in Pictures, it’s official… Brown was responsible for illustrating every movie poster ever made. Ok, not really but it will seem like it to anyone poring through page after page of some of the most potent propaganda in Hollywood history. An update on the update appears at the end of this review of the 2009 edition.

The era of the illustrated movie poster, that ideal marriage of art and commerce, has long since faded along with the posters themselves. From the big-top colors of Al Hirschfeld’s caricatures for A Night at the Opera to the orange whirlpool of Saul BassVertigo one-sheet, these were advertisements that excited the senses as much as the films they were designed
