Paranormal Activity 3 has arrived in theaters to a glowing A- review from EW. An A- is impressive for any sequel, let alone a third film in a horror franchise. The last non-vampire horror movie I saw in theaters was Scream 3 in 2000. As a single woman who lives alone, enjoys sleep, has an active imagination and a history of needing to move the VHS copy of The Exorcist to her roommate’s side of the room after watching it in college, I just don’t need to risk it. But again, the latest review intrigued me, and so, in the safety of my office, in midday, with the lights on and the door open, I decided to watch the first film on Netflix. Is it still scary?

Rubber Man! The flukeman! The Man from Another Place! Television has a longstanding history of giving viewers the heebie-jeebies, whether it’s via a bald, nearly-silent observer who can seemingly read your mind, or a posse of desperate humans covered in guts so they can safely pass through a pack of zombies.
But what TV show has been the absolute best at slithering underneath our skin and haunting our slumber for days after it airs? Is it the newest addition to the horror show coterie, FX’s American Horror Story? Is is a short-lived-but-no-less-sinister mid-’90s show like American Gothic (with Gary Cole) or Millennium (with Lance Henriksen)? Is it the show that helped inspire The X-Files, the 1974 cult favorite Kolchak: The Night Stalker? Or is it a death match between the grandpappy of hair-raising television, The Twilight Zone, and its upstart cousin The Outer Limits?

'American Horror Story' starts tonight. Will you be watching the season's biggest love/hate TV show?
When I first watched the pilot for American Horror Story one week ago, I found myself possessed by an unsettling demon: Indecision. Did I love it? Did I hate it? The birth of bloody brilliance… or the crowning of something rank? Part of my agitation had to do with the frantic, feverish sensory experience crafted by Ryan Murphy, who co-created the show with his Glee collaborator Brad Falchuk. The pilot left me wrung out by its battery of shock images and strung out from its jittery editing schemes. The show’s not scary – it’s punishing. Which, actually, might be the point, the more I think about it. And I have thought a lot about American Horror Story over the past seven days. (I will be recapping the show, after all.) I’ve also watched the pilot three more times, and each time, I’ve enjoyed it more, and seen more in it. The matter is now settled in my mind: American Horror Story is my favorite new show of the fall season.
You may disagree. It’s certain that many of you will. READ FULL STORY
Boxing hobbits! Elijah Wood and Dominic Monaghan 'beat the s--' out of each other at Fantastic Fest -- VIDEO
A couple of weeks back, Fantastic Fest organizer Tim League spoke to us about his then upcoming debate and boxing match with bare knuckle pugilist James Quinn McDonagh, star of the Austin, Texas fest’s selection Knuckle. What League neglected to mention (the swine!) was that another of the night’s bouts would feature Lord of the Rings co-stars “Relentless” Elijah Wood and “Domineering” Dominic Monaghan.
That’s right, on Saturday, Frodo and Merry stepped in the ring to first argue the merits of World of Warcraft and then, in the words of Wood, “beat the s— out of one other.”
