Respecting your elders is a staple of all cultures. But you really respect them when they can use their shoe like it’s a switchblade knife.
There are multiple terrors lurking in Christopher Alender’s horror short Kinderfänger. The first is telegraphed by the title, which loosely translates to “child snatcher.” The second, as you can see in the thumbnail below, is a ghoulish, flute-playing creature. The third... well, you’re gonna have to watch and see.
Over the past year, I have sought solace from our current political climate and the day to day terrors of the world in a most surprising source: Violent, scary horror movies.
The trailer is so bonkers, I’m not sure if there are any other words necessary.
Within a matter of minutes after Ron Howard announced the name of his upcoming Han Solo prequel film, Star Wars fans flocked to Twitter to express their distaste for the (admittedly) straightforward title: Solo: A Star Wars Story. Here’s the thing, though, the name is perfectly fine.
Boils and Ghouls, the spooky season is upon us once again, and that can only mean one thing: you’ve already started preparing your fabulous costume for Halloween. That means we want to see it! Yes, the io9 Halloween Costume Show is back, and we’d love to get a look at what you’re working on.
Netflix and Marvel made the right decision a few weeks ago when the companies decided to cancel The Punisher panel at New York Comic Con in the wake of the October 1 shooting in Las Vegas that left 58 people dead and 489 others wounded. The timing would have been beyond offensive, which raises the question: When can…
EA is shutting down Visceral Games, the studio behind games like Battlefield Hardline and Dead Space, the publisher said today. The Star Wars game in development at Visceral will be revamped and move to a different studio, EA says, although it will now be something completely different.
Fear the Walking Dead is about to change. The third season just ended and the finale left many characters’ fates a mystery. This was by design, because Dave Erickson, showrunner for the first three seasons, is leaving. However, in a new interview, he gave fans a tease of how he might have ended the show if he…
Animated films are notorious for sneaking little jokes and oddities into the frame. That’ll happen when each piece of the movie takes so long to create. But in Pixar’s Cars 3, there are so many Easter eggs, you literally could never, ever see them all by simply watching the movie.
Rumors have been circling about Western adaptations of Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima’s seminal manga epic Lone Wolf and Cub for years at this point. But the latest attempt is now underway at Paramount, with a little help from Fast and Furious and Star Trek Beyond’s Justin Lin.
The idea of a Samurai Jack movie sounds amazing—all the style and drama of what made Genndy Tartakovsky’s scifi sword-swinging cartoon so good with the budget and screen real estate of a film. But it turns out we could’ve got one in the gap between the show’s fourth and fifth seasons... and it doesn’t sound as good as…
Nintendo created three gorgeous books that are must-owns for any Legend of Zelda fan, and all three are on sale today. They aren’t all-time low prices (except for the Zelda Encyclopedia, which comes out next year), but they’re solid discounts off what you’d normally pay, so you won’t have to break too many pots or cut…
Batman’s undergone countless permutations in thousands of comics over the last eight years. Yet for all that storytelling, the actual politics of a Gotham City protected by an obsessed vigilante has been an under-explored notion—and it’s one Sean Murphy’s going right to the heart of in Batman: White Knight.
Astronomy has entered a new era, one where light and gravity both play a role in understanding the Universe’s craziest phenomena. On August 17, 2017, over 70 observatories around (and above) the world, including ones like LIGO and the Hubble Space Telescope, all spotted a flash of energy. This light came in many…
Looks like Mark Ruffalo isn’t the biggest Thor: Ragnarok leaker anymore. During a recent Australian television appearance, both Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth were forced to play referee after the TV host repeatedly blurted out a pretty important plot twist for the upcoming film.
It’s Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Last week, Fox dropped the first trailer for its upcoming X-Men spinoff film The New Mutants, and it proved to be every bit the horror-inspired riff on the superhero genre that director Josh Boone promised it would be.
