(Welcome to Now Scream This, a column where horror experts Chris Evangelista and Matt Donato tell you what scary, spooky, and spine-tingling movies are streaming and where you can watch them.)

‘Homecoming’ Season 2 Will Not Feature Julia Roberts

If you were hoping to see Julia Roberts in Homecoming season 2, I have some bad news. While Roberts will remain an executive producer on the fantastic Amazon series from Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail, she won’t be returning to play her season 1 character Heidi Bergman. This is a bit disappointing, as Roberts turned in a wonderful performance in season 1. THR is reporting that Julia Roberts isn’t coming back for Homecoming season 2, and I’m sad about that. Per their story, “Roberts’ initial de...

The Square Off chess board melds the classical with the robotic

CES crowds can be tough — especially toward the end of the week. You’re physically and emotionally drained, and you’re pretty sure you’ve seen everything the consumer electronics world has to offer. And then something comes along to knock your socks off. Square Off was one such product, impressing the crowd at our meetup and walking away the winner of our hardware pitch-off. The company’s first product looks like your run of the mill wooden chess board. And that’s part of the charm. Turn it ...

Honourable mention: Night Thirst

This was a 2002 horror portmanteau film directed by Jon McBride, John Polonia and Mark Polonia. I spotted it on Amazon video and, when I noticed the involvement of the Polonia brothers my heart fell. Whilst I haven’t seen much of their work we know them at TMtV for the utterly awful How to Slay a Vampire and that was more than enough. However, I watch the films so you don’t have to and this purported to feature a vampire. As things go that happens to be in the wraparound section and is thus a b...

Harmonix Harmony

I find it a bit funny and strange that last week I found myself playing not one, but two games from Harmonix, having terrific play experiences with each. Sure, I’ve enjoyed Rock Band games in the past (especially the Beatles one), but I hadn’t played anything from them in a while, and although it’s a coincidence I found myself playing both DropMix and Amplitude at the same, it’s a happy one. DropMix is an electronic board/card game the company released a year or two ago. I remember hearing it w...

Boys TV Show May Be Better Than the Comic

Once upon a time, it would have been unthinkable to me not to prefer the “original” version of a comic adaptation. But now, after we’ve gotten some highly entertaining Marvel movies that streamline too many years of continuity into more approachable stories, and a cartoon version of Batman that’s more fun than anything in the comics, I’m rethinking that approach. I suspect that’s going to be particularly true of the upcoming Amazon TV version of The Boys. The comic, by [...]

‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Reboot Coming From Producers of Previous ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Reboot

Well, here we go again, I guess. Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, folks from Platinum Dunes who produced the last Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, have just announced their next project: a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot. That’s right, they’re starting all over again, and might even start shooting the reboot this year. Cowabunga, I guess! Remember those hideous CGI monster-face versions of the Ninja Turtles? Well, they’re getting a new lease on life. Speaking with Variety at the Critics’...

2019 Critics’ Choice Awards: ‘Roma,’ ‘The Americans,’ ‘Mrs. Maisel’ Earn Top Prizes, Lady Gaga and Glenn Close Tie for Best Actress

Rotten Tomatometers and Metacritic aggregation can only show a sliver of what critics think about films, but the Critics Choice Awards is the definitive proof. The Broadcast Film Critics Association and Broadcast Television Journalists Association bestowed their annual Critics’ Choice Awards to the best in movies and TV over the past year, awarding a few festival and awards circuit favorites while mostly passing over The Favourite, despite the Yorgos Lanthimos film’s 14 nods — the most of any f...

Patlabor Ultimate Blu-ray Boxset Review

Readers who frequent my blog will know that I’m a massive Patlabor fan; I have a decent collection of art books from the franchise and thoroughly enjoy both the OVA series and feature films, so when Maiden Japan announced the release of this Ultimate blu-ray boxset I knew I had to get it. The boxset includes most, but not all of the Patlabor animation media out there – The 3 TV series ( Mobile Police Patlabor, Patlabor : The TV Series and Patlabor : The New Files ) and the 3 animated feature ...

Costco Releases 27lbs Mac And Cheese Bucket For The End Of Days

Get your wallets out and put on some elastic pants Ah, Costco. The land of plenty. Endless free samples, the best and simultaneously worst hotdogs $1.50 can buy, and so many things in bulk that you didn’t even know could be bought in bulk. Whatever the need, Costco has never failed to provide. So I guess it was only a matter of time before they saw the direction things are going (that direction being downward, very fast, like a bullet train off a cliff) and made some updates to their p...

Smart Speakers Make Inroads Into American Homes

According to a recent statement, Amazon shipped more than 100 million Echo devices since 2014, making it the leader in the highly contested ...

Jordan Peele may be horror’s new favorite son, but the ever-busy writer/producer/director is finding ways to acknowledge his comedy roots. Jordan Peele and former Key & Peele writer Charlie Sanders teamed up to create the YouTube Premium series Weird City, a sci-fi anthology that brings the funny to futuristic dystopias.
