Sci-Fi Horror Movie Meander Looks Absolutely Terrifying and I Hate It

“You wake up. You’re stuck in a pipe.” That’s all this trailer for Mathieu Turi’s French horror film Meander had to say to chill my bones and make me what to turn off the trailer in visceral loathing.

Neill Blomkamp's Demonic Movie Definitely Has Demons in It, I Guess?

Flush with $42M, hot AI startup Faculty plans to hoover-up more PhDs… and steer clear of politics
