We were thrilled to get a whole miniseries focusing on Marceline, Adventure Time’s resident vampire, a while back. Adventure Time: Stakes is out on DVD today—and to celebrate, here’s an exclusive clip showing the animatics of the story’s scary climax.
For my money, Truly, Madly, Deeply is Alan Rickman’s greatest work. The story of a man who dies, but returns to his beloved as a ghost, is a masterpiece that captures just how hard it is to let go of a loved one who’s gone.
Jane Lynch is one of our comedy gods, so it’s too bad her new TV show Angel From Hell is kind of a bust. (Although it could get better.) Luckily, there’s one hilarious scene in the first episode, and you can already watch it right now.
Before Joe Cornish directed Attack the Block (and cowrote Ant-Man and Tintin), he was one half of the Adam and Joe Show, which was one of our favorite British comedy shows. And they used to make truly weird movie spoofs with stuffed animals and other toys. Here’s their riff on Se7en.
Seriously, Hollywood keeps making weird-ass fairytale movies. And they really ought to take a note from this insane new Taylor Swift video for “Out of the Woods,” which does for fairytales what her “Bad Blood” vid did for action movies.
This is the time of year for reflection, for asking the big important questions. Like, which B-movie exploitation riff on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is better: Jacqueline Hyde or Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde?
Watching this video might make you want to go back to Jack Black’s school of rock. Here’s Black, and Tenacious D bandmate Kyle Gass, performing one of the greatest movie themes of all time: Queen’s “Flash Gordon.” Aaaaaaaa!
Back when Star Wars was brand new and nobody knew what it was, Mark Hamill had to go on the BBC’s iconic children’s show Blue Peter and explain it to the kids. And his explanation is just perfect.
Now that Marty McFly’s arrived from 1985, it’s time to give Marty a proper greeting: with a porn spoof! After all, porn spoofs are the most important cultural artifacts of our futuristic era. Here’s the first trailer, exclusively at io9! It’s work-safe, apart from some sex toys.
The science fiction movie High Treason was considered one of the most important films of its time, up there with Metropolis. It was also the first full-length “talkie” made in Britain, although it was released in both silent and “talkie” versions. And now, it’s finally rediscovered and restored.
We’re still bummed that Victor Frankenstein turned out to be kind of a dud. But at least there’s always Hung Wankenstein, which has one of the funniest titles of any porn spoof ever.
Melissa Rosenberg just helped redefine what we expect from superheroes on screen with the new Jessica Jones Netflix series. But let’s not forget her previous foray into superheroics: the 2002-2003 Birds of Prey TV show, which featured a ridiculously creepy Harley Quinn.
There have been a lot of adaptations of Alice in Wonderland over the years, including a Disney animated version, an X-rated musical, and Tim Burton’s lavish CG fantasia (which is getting a sequel!). But the strangest, and maybe best, is the 1972 version...featuring Peter Sellers as the March Hare and Dudley Moore as…
Pan was kind of a letdown in general. But the Peter Pan origins movie does have one totally bonkers moment that’s worth checking out—when Hugh Jackman leads all the captive boys in a singalong of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” Hear it for yourself!
A group of teenagers jams on a train, not realizing that they’re actually on the special train where God and Satan are debating theology and watching crappy short horror films. It can only be the classic Night Train To Terror.
You think the sitcom Last Man on Earth has a weird spin on post-apocalyptic survival and the problems of the one man left alive? Check out this bizarre skit from In Living Color, in which the last man on Earth has an uncomfortable awakening.
This is kind of bizarre. French pop-art stars Nicolas et Bruno have edited together a ton of the world’s most bizarre porn movies into one X-rated comedy epic called In Search of the Ultra-Sex, overdubbed with their silly voices. Warning: Video is NSFW!
In researching Man from UNCLE, an interesting bit of trivia kept popping up: Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner’s first appearance together was in UNCLE’s season one episode “The Project Strigas Affair.”
Found footage films are everywhere these days, but few short films use the concept as effectively as Timelike does. That’s because it puts its own spin on a familiar concept: one night, a young physics student receives a message from her future self. What follows quickly goes from unnerving to distressing.
The 2005 version of Fantastic Four isn’t held up as an example of superhero-movie brilliance... and it hasn’t aged well. It’s mostly a pretty forgettable origin story, with boring action and broad-brush characterization. But it does have one great moment, and here it is.
