(2018– )


The Purge 5 Has Cast Its Male Lead

The Purge 5 has found its male lead. Narcos: Mexico star Tenoch Huerta, who played Rafael Caro Quintero in the Netflix series, will be joining the cast of the upcoming horror sequel. This new and final chapter will be helmed by Everardo Gout, who’s known for directing episodes of Mars, Luke Cage, and The Terror, while Huerta is set to join Army of the Dead star Ana de la Reguera onscreen.

Little is known thus far about about the plot of the movie, but it’s obvious that the film will be based around the same premise that’s anchored the popular series thus far. After all, the franchise has made a killing (no pun intended) off of exploring a not-too-distant utopian future where in exchange for 364 days of peace, the American government has agreed to implement one night a year in which all violent crimes are legal.

The Purge Season 2 Episode 5 Review: House of Mirrors

Things are spinning out of control for Ben and Ryan, as impulsive actions lead to a tense episode of The Purge.




This The Purge review contains spoilers.

The Purge Season 2 Episode 5

The concept of Purge tourism has always been an interesting idea, and one that hasn’t nearly been touched on enough in the Purge media universe. There was talk of Purge tourism, but there are nuts-and-bolts concerns that are addressed in this week’s cold opening, in which a Brazilian bride is planning an American Purge bridal shower trip with her six bridesmaids over her Maid of Honor’s objections. The trip comes with weapons, a hotel stay, and bodyguards for all involved, but the bridesmaid asks a very important question: what happens for those people who cannot make the trip back? With every plan, there is a risk for something to go wrong, no matter how prepared you might be.

Selena Netflix Series Trailer Reveals The Walking Dead’s Christian Serratos as the Star

Joseph Baxter Nov 12, 2019

The Walking Dead’s Christian Serratos will star as the iconic late singer, Selena, in a Netflix series.

Popular-music-focused dramatizations seem to have found new life, thanks to recent cinematic offerings like Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman, with many more currently on the industry docket. It’s a notion that Netflix might have taken into consideration with a television project it just unveiled, set to chronicle the story of Selena Quintanilla, the 1990s Mexican-American crossover pop sensation whose rise was tragically cut short upon being murdered by her friend and agent.

The Walking Dead’s longtime cast member, Christian Serratos, will field the starring role on the Netflix television offering, titled Selena: The Series. The show – obviously limited in nature – will be released on Netflix in “parts,” rather than seasons, with Part 1 set to arrive with six 1-hour episodes.

  • The Wrap
Ready to get some chills? Great, because Netflix has dropped a first look at “Walking Dead” star Christian Serratos in character as Selena Quintanilla in the streaming service’s upcoming “Selena: The Series.” And the resemblance between the actress and the late singer is uncanny.

“Selena: The Series” is described by Netflix as “a coming of age story following Selena Quintanilla as her dreams come true and all the heart-wrenching and life-changing choices she and her family have to make as they navigate success, family, and music.” Season 1 will include six hour-long episodes.

“Selena is an inspirational figure who’s transcended generations. At Campanario, we’ve always known it was crucial for this series to find actors with the right mix of talent, charisma, and passion to honor Selena’s legacy and the story of her family,” said Jaime Davila, president and co-founder of Campanario Entertainment. “Our casting director Carla Hool

Fantasy Island Trailer Goes Full-On Horror at the Classic Resort

  • MovieWeb
Sony Pictures has revealed the first trailer for the upcoming Fantasy Island movie. This serves as something of a modern update to the classic 70s/80s TV series of the same name. Though, in this case, the filmmakers have decided to give the show something of a twisted, horror-tinged update, which might surprise fans of the original ABC series who are just stumbling on this trailer. In any event, this isn't business as usual on this otherwise lovely island getaway.

The trailer kicks off with Lucy Hale getting into a mysterious elevator, with some soothing voiceover provided by Michael Pe&#241a. It's promised that the life one has always dreamt of is hiding just behind those doors. We then see gorgeous shots of the seemingly tranquil and lovely island where "anything and everything is possible." Though, rather conveniently (or inconveniently depending on how one wants to look at it) there is no cellphone service.

Blumhouse's Fantasy Island Movie Poster and Synopsis Promise You're Never Coming Home
We've got some new goods for the upcoming Fantasy Island movie. Blumhouse Productions and Sony Pictures are turning the classic TV series into a big screen affair next year, but with something of a twist. Instead of being a happy, fantasy-fulfilling affair, this is going to have a horror twist. That is teased by both the movie's first synopsis and the newly released plot synopsis.

Starting with the poster, the image itself is gorgeous. We see a lush tropical island covered in greenery and surrounded by crystal blue water. It's the kind of island getaway that so many dream of. There is a small plane heading toward the island and the ominous hashtag, which serves as the movies' tagline, #NeverComingHome. Sony Pictures shared the one-sheet on Twitter with the following caption.

"This island is a scream. Blumhouse's Fantasy Island in theaters Valentine's Day."

EW Debuts Creepy First Photos From Blumhouse’s Invisible Man Reboot

The disastrous Dark Universe may be long dead and buried, but that doesn’t mean that Universal are going to leave their stable of classic monsters alone. The studio are now taking a different approach to their iconic characters, and handing them off to a new group of filmmakers in a concerted effort to move away from the big-budget, star-driven approach that saw their last attempt derailed at the first hurdle following the dismal critical and commercial reactions to Tom Cruise’s The Mummy.

Paul Feig is currently developing an interesting-sounding concept called Dark Army, but first out of the gate next February is The Invisible Man, from Saw co-creator and Upgrade director Leigh Whannell. The movie is being overseen by Jason Blum, who has a solid track record in the horror genre, with his Blumhouse production company responsible for a string of box office hits including the Paranormal Activity,

The Purge Season 2 Episode 4 Review: Grief Box

  • TVfanatic
Time is speeding along, and The Purge Season 2 Episode 4 takes place three months after Ben killed the beloved Strawberry farmer.

At this rate, we'll probably be at another Purge Night by the finale, but it seems too early.

The storylines are inching up to that night too fast without offering enough backstory on how The Purge came into existence.

There are small reveals that tickle the imagination, but if the series isn't renewed (and it's not looking good), then we'll be forced waiting for another Purge movie to dole out information.

And let's be honest, this material is ideal for a TV show, but the people who go to see The Purge movies want blood and gore and frights galore. Policies won't fly.

Esme and Darren have gathered enough information that they realize it was someone in power who killed Professor Adams to keep her and her research quiet.

Abigail Spencer Embraces Her Inner Dark Side in the Intense Trailer For Hulu's Reprisal

  • Popsugar
Abigail Spencer is a woman on a mission in the latest trailer for Hulu's Reprisal. In the new drama, the Timeless alum stars as a woman named Katherine Harlow who is hell-bent on seeking revenge against her brother and his gang. After being left for dead many years ago, Spencer's character takes on a brand-new identity as a soft-spoken blond named Doris Quinn. But don't let her poise throw you off - she clearly means business! "I feel as though something is waking up inside me," Spencer calmly states in the trailer. "This darkness, like a sickness. And you helped me realize it."

The series, which also stars Rodrigo Santoro (Westworld), Mena Massoud (Aladdin), and Rhys Wakefield (The Purge), doesn't hit the streaming service until Dec. 6, but it already looks like one heck of a ride. Watch the latest trailer above.

It’s Halloween season. The time for sitting down with candles glowing, a hot cup of black coffee in hand, and the dark night bellowing silence outside the windows, and watching a bloody good horror film. I’m always excited to find and experience new cool horror movies that are set during the season of blood and chills, and so I was fully all-in for One Night in October when I was offered a chance to review it for Nerdly.
