Real-life ghost hunter Lorraine Warren, who, with her late husband Ed, inspired The Conjuring series, has died at 92.

Ranking the Films of Edgar Wright on the 15th Anniversary of ‘Shaun of the Dead’

These concepts all sprung from the mind of filmmaker Edgar Wright, whose features over the last 15 years have managed to all feel daring and strikingly original even as he wears his references on his metaphorical sleeves. Wright’s first major feature film, Shaun of ...

Would England’s Morris Dancing Clubs Rather Die Out Than Go Co-Ed?

Yes, it’s apparently a real question: as clubs gradually disappear and the membership of the remaining groups ages, admitting women would seem to be an obvious way to keep things going. But whether or not to do so is an argument raging on within the (shrinking) Morris community. – The Guardian
