A scifi tale by virtue of its setting, but an old-school film noir at heart thanks to its story, Mute is a puzzle with eccentric pieces that eventually all fit together—perhaps a bit too neatly, given its fondness for jagged edges. But its love of sleazy neon and some unusual themes do much to make up for its…

5 Times That People Claimed to Be Real-Life Time Travelers 5 Times That People Claimed to Be Real-Life Time Travelers

Time travel as we see it in movies—using DeLoreans, phone booths, hot tubs, and the like—obviously doesn’t exist. But throughout history, people have insisted that they somehow managed to do it. Though most of their wild tales were eventually disproven, the stories are still incredible. Here are five of the most…

A Frozen-Faced Man Finds Unexpected Hope in Sweet Fantasy Short Cautionary Tales A Frozen-Faced Man Finds Unexpected Hope in Sweet Fantasy Short Cautionary Tales

Parental scare tactics come true in Luke Taylor and Chris Barrett’s fable Cautionary Tales, about a lonely young man who made a stupendously goofy face as a kid... and then, just as his mother warned him, was forced to live with that expression forever when it froze into place. But all is not lost.

The 8 Best (and 4 Worst) Twist Endings in Scifi and Fantasy Movies The 8 Best (and 4 Worst) Twist Endings in Scifi and Fantasy Movies

Scifi and fantasy films are famously fond of twist endings. Certainly, authors like Richard Matheson and TV shows like The Twilight Zone are a big reason why—but last-act shocks reach back to the era of silent cinema, as anyone who’s seen 1920's The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari can attest. Last-act shocks don’t always…

Wes Anderson’s next film, Isle of Dogs, returns to the furry aesthetic of his 2009 stop-motion comedy Fantastic Mr. Fox.

Tonight, Syfy’s horror anthology series Channel Zero dips back into the Creepypasta chest of frights for Butcher’s Block. The third season of the show is just as unsettling as Candle Cove and No-End House—with the added distinction of being the goriest Channel Zero yet. We watched the first four episodes (although we…

In an announcement that should surprise no one—considering the fact that Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is closing in on a billion dollars at the box office—there’s a sequel in the works to the comedy reboot starring Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan.

13 Horror and Fantasy Movies and TV Shows Inspired by Urban Legends 13 Horror and Fantasy Movies and TV Shows Inspired by Urban Legends

Eerie entertainment frequently takes inspiration from urban legends, with good reason—nothing’s scarier than a fantastical tale that still feels like it just might be true. TV shows like The X-Files and Supernatural have made liberal use of contemporary folklore over the years, and plenty of feature films have been…

Surreal Horrors Invade the Backwoods in Loopy Scifi Short Crittus Surreal Horrors Invade the Backwoods in Loopy Scifi Short Crittus

The wilderness is a favorite staging ground for horror filmmakers—but Marcus Alqueres’ short Crittus adds some extra dimensions to that concept. Literally. Without spoiling anything, suffice to say this depicts maybe the worst worst-case scenario that could come from a solo camping trip.

Cadet Sylvia Tilly, the youngest member of the USS Discovery’s crew, is wide-eyed, brainy, chatty, and intensely chipper. When the character (played by Mary Wiseman) first showed up in episode three, she made me cringe. But over the course of the season, she has completely won me over.

A Heartbroken Man's Emotional Baggage Marks Him in a Most Unusual Way in Scifi Short Picture Wheel A Heartbroken Man's Emotional Baggage Marks Him in a Most Unusual Way in Scifi Short Picture Wheel

Break-ups in the era of social media are rough—even if you “unfriend” and “unfollow” your ex, you’re still in danger of catching a glimpse of whatever they’re up to, especially if you still have mutual friends. But things are even worse for the sad, newly-single man at the center of Picture Wheel, thanks to the weird…
