‘The Season of Passage’: Mike Flanagan Directing Christopher Pike Adaptation

When it comes to the glory days of young adult horror novels, there’s Christopher Pike and then there’s everyone else. Pike wrote incredibly weird, batshit crazy scary books for younger readers, and while Hollywood had dipped into the work of his contemporary R.L. Stine, Pike’s work has been sorely underrepresented on the screen. But that’s about to change, thanks to Mike Flanagan. Not only is Flanagan adapting Pike’s The Midnight Club into a Netflix series, but he’s now signed on to turn Pike’...

‘Confessions of a Dangerous Mind’ TV Series Will Star Justin Timberlake as ‘Gong Show’ Host and Self-Confessed CIA Assassin Chuck Barris

Chuck Barris was the host of The Gong Show and creator of The Dating Game and The Newlywed Game. He was also an assassin for the CIA. Okay, that’s more than likely not true – but Barris himself made those claims in his autobiography Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. The CIA denied Barris was an agent – but that’s exactly what they would say, isn’t it? Of course, Barris himself also admitted he made the whole thing up. No matter – it was a good story, and it was turned into a twisted little film ...

Lost Soviet ‘Lord of the Rings’ TV Movie Resurfaces on YouTube

In 1991, a Lord of the Rings TV adaptation titled Khraniteli aired on Soviet television. By all accounts, it’s the only Lord of the Rings adaptation made in the Soviet Union – and it was also thought to be lost forever. However, much like the One Ring itself, the Soviet Lord of the Rings TV movie has resurfaced – on YouTube. It’s a charmingly low-budgeted affair, looking more like a TV game show than a J. R. R. Tolkien adaptation, and you can watch it in full below. Soviet Lord of the Rings...
