Dark: Here Are the Real Elements of Netflix's Spooky New Series

Looking for another thriller after binge-watching the second season of Stranger Things for the second or third time in a row? Netflix has answered our prayers, with a new 10-episode supernatural thriller hailing from Germany, appropriately named Dark. If you've already dived in, you may be wondering if it's based on a true story. Set in the quaint, quiet town of Winden, Germany, Dark is full of gloom, dread, and an air of mystery. Considering the series is based on children disappearing without a trace, relationships being tainted and broken, and secrets being revealed, it all sounds like the perfect plot for a fresh take on a classic horror movie. Right? The series was shot in Berlin, and in an interview with Radio Times, writer Jantje Friese said, "It's a fictional town. We deliberately wanted that because we didn't want to color it with a specific Bavarian or northern German setting.

Dario Argento’s Suspiria 4k Restoration Midnights This Weekend at The Moolah – ‘Late Night Grindhouse’

“Bad luck isn’t brought by broken mirrors, but by broken minds”

Th 4k restoration of Dario Argento’s Suspiria screens Midnights this weekend (September 15th and 16th) at The Moolah Theater and Lounge (3821 Lindell Blvd, St. Louis, Mo 63108) as part of Destroy the Brain’s monthly Late Night Grindhouse film series.

Director Dario Argento redefined horror in 1977 with his masterpiece Suspiria, the Citizen Kane of Italian cinema, a Brother’s Grimm Fairy Tale of outrageously nightmarish proportions. Jessica Harper plays Suzy, an American ballet student, studying at an exclusive dance academy in the Black Forest of Germany. After one of the students and her friend are hideously murdered in the first of Argento’s breath-catching set-piece killings, Suzy discovers that the academy has a bizarre history and, as the body count rises, she gets involved in a hideous labyrinth of murder, black magic and madness.I first saw Suspiria

NYFF55 Revivals Includes Restored Films By Godard, Hou, Costa, Tarkovsky & More

It’s a given that their Main Slate — the fresh, the recently buzzed-about, the mysterious, the anticipated — will be the New York Film Festival’s primary point of attraction for both media coverage and ticket sales. But while a rather fine lineup is, to these eyes, deserving of such treatment, the festival’s latest Revivals section — i.e. “important works from renowned filmmakers that have been digitally remastered, restored, and preserved with the assistance of generous partners,” per their press release — is in a whole other class, one titanic name after another granted a representation that these particular works have so long lacked.

The list speaks for itself, even (or especially) if you’re more likely to recognize a director than title. Included therein are films by Andrei Tarkovsky (The Sacrifice), Hou Hsiao-hsien (Daughter of the Nile, a personal favorite), Pedro Costa (Casa de Lava; trailer here), Jean-Luc Godard (the rarely seen,

If anything, Vertigo continues to set the bar when it comes to mature comic book storytelling. Odds are that if you’ve ventured beyond DC’s usual standards, there’s at least something that’s captivated you at some point, be it V for Vendetta, Swamp Thing or Hellblazer. And while some may argue that the imprint’s best days are behind it, one need only open the pages of some of their greatest offerings in recent years such as New Romancer, The Sheriff of Babylon, The Dark & Bloody or Frostbite to prove naysayers wrong.

This year, Savage Things has kept the ball rolling, handily impressing us right out of the gate. The beauty of this particular series is that it can appeal to pretty much anybody who enjoys themselves a gripping thriller. Really, even if

John Mayer Talks About Taylor Swift: Let's Just ... Everybody Stop!

  • TooFab
John Mayer has no fears when it comes to talking about ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift. The two famously dated back in 2010 and both released songs about the breakup after they split. Swift's track, "Dear John," included lyrics like "Dear John, I see it all, now it was wrong / Don't you think 19 is too young to be played by your dark twisted games, when I loved you so" ... while his song, "Paper Dolls" contained references to the "22" singer. Though they clearly had a bad break, Mayer had only great things to say about his ex in an interview with MSNBC's Ronan Farrow. When talking about Swift taking on Spotify, Mayer praised her for not allowing her music on there -- saying "I think that's a really cool thing for a musician to do." He then addressed the song he reportedly wrote about Swifty. "All we're talking about is being honest with yourself

John Mayer Talks About His Ex-Girlfriend Taylor Swift
John Mayer isn't afraid to talk about Taylor Swift. The musicians dated briefly in 2010, and it didn't end well. Swift penned the song "Dear John" for her 2010 album Speak Now, and Mayer responded with "Paper Dolls" on his 2013 album Paradise Valley. Rather than ignore his ex's influence on pop culture, however, Mayer gave the singer-songwriter credit during an interview for MSNBC's 7 Days of Genius special. "How's technology changing? When you look at Taylor Swift—I want to talk about Taylor Swift, professionally here!" Ronan Farrow told Mayer, 37. "You have to talk about Taylor Swift!" Mayer said. "We have to be able to talk about Taylor...

Snuffed Out: Still More Series That Were Gone Too Soon

With the fate of ABC’s Happy Endings decided, it has officially become a member of the “Gone Too Soon” club, TV shows that were snuffed out before they had a chance to flourish … or jump the shark. The club used to be headed by the Holy Trinity of Arrested Development/Freaks & Geeks/Firefly, but Arrested Development has been miraculously resurrected, so let’s put … I don’t know … Pushing Daisies in its place.

While we mourn Happy Endings, let’s take a third trip down TV memory lane. In the first Snuffed Out, we paid tribute to the aforementioned Daisies, as well as Wonderfalls, Nightman, The Book Of Daniel, Popular, The Five Mrs. Buchanans, The Flash, Eerie Indiana, It’s All Relative, Paper Dolls and the newly-resurrected Veronica Mars.

“Teen Wolf” Paper Dolls!

Oh Teen Wolf how you tease! Much as we love the show, the denizens of Beacon Hills never quite do all the things we want them to do… or for a sufficient amount of time. To be fair, the episodes are only 41 minutes long. They have to pack a lot of awesome in, so sometimes our favorite supes and sidekicks get short shrift.

So for hardcore Wolfies who want more of their favorite characters… and have the vivid imagination to create their own adventures, we bring you the first entry in a fabulous Teen Wolf paper doll set by graphic artist Andy Swist.

How to start watching 'Doctor Who': Star Matt Smith and exec producer Steven Moffat suggest some Tardis entry points

How to start watching 'Doctor Who': Star Matt Smith and exec producer Steven Moffat suggest some Tardis entry points
Are you a Doctor Who virgin who wants to start watching the Time Lord’s adventures, but is daunted by the fact that the British science-fiction show’s half-century history now encompasses literally dozens of seasons, not to mention 11 small screen Doctors, two ’60s-era films, one TV movie, and numerous specials?

Good news! You don’t have to watch every episode of Doctor Who to know what’s going on. In fact, that’s impossible “thanks” to the BBC’s habit during the ’60s and ’70s of wiping the show’s tapes.

So where should non-Whovian readers start viewing? Well,

TV on Tap: Jean Smart Takes a Principal Pilot Role, "Grimm" Gets Caribbean and Why Is "American Idol" Sinking?

The Voice returns with a new line-up of judge and awkwardly bad photoshop.

News

Following roles in in Hawaii Five-0 and Harry's Law, Jean Smart has found a new comedy role, according to Deadline. She's joined the Craig Robinson-centered pilot, which has Robinson playing a musician who becomes a middle school music teacher. Smart will play the stressed out principal of Robinson's school.

Good news, Mr. Feeny will be a part of Boy Meets World follow-up series Girl Meets World as William Daniels will reprise the role. Those of you who thought it would be hard to revisit Cory and Topanga without Mr. Feeny's sage advice, you can let out a sigh of relief.

Whoa. The second season of Baby Daddy doesn't debut for another two months, but ABC Family has already ordered a third season.

It looks like Grimm is expanding its lore once more. The supernatural drama

Sounds Jewish podcast: Israeli elections aftermath and the Gerald Scarfe cartoon

Join Jason Solomons and guests, award-winning novelist Naomi Alderman, Middle East analyst at Chatham House and director of International Relations at Regents Park College Yossi Mekelberg, and writer and documentary-maker Alexander Bodin Saphir.

The elections in Israel may be over and the votes counted, but such is the complexity of coalition politics in Israel, the final makeup of Binyamin Netanyahu's government is still being negotiated. But what happened to the predicted surge to the extreme right?

What do the panel make of Gerald Scarfe's controversial cartoon in the Sunday Times, depicting Netanyahu building a wall on the bodies of Palestinians and using their blood as cement?

And as Oscar night approaches, we take a look at two of the shortlisted documentaries, The Gatekeepers and 5 Broken Cameras: both from Israel but with very different takes on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We ask the director of The Gatekeepers, Dror Moreh, what motivated

AfterElton Briefs: Divas Don't Help "American Idol," Matt Bomer Is Inspiring, and Gareth Thomas Has A Secret Past

By hurting people and being aggressive on the pitch, I was seen as a tough guy.

Review: Kylie Hams It Up For Hammersmith

Review: Kylie Hams It Up For Hammersmith
Kylie Minogue brought her stripped-bare Anti Tour to London last night, performing a catalogue of B-sides, demos and other relative unknowns to her hardcore fans at Hammersmith.

Some of the songs were obscure even to the pop princess herself, who had to keep a lyric sheet to hand, and even used it as a prop during Give Me Just A Little More Time.

Perhaps she was a little preoccupied, with the announcement earlier in the evening that her sister Dannii had split from her longtime partner Kris Smith.

And the sight in the 5000-strong crowd of Pete Waterman, the man who originally brought her to sing in the UK, and will no doubt be intent on her topping the bill at his Pwl reunion concert at Hyde Park in July.

Kylie came dressed for the part in an eighties-throwback ensemble, studs and all.
