La Llorona 

A military general on trial for war crimes faces the wrath of La Llorona in a new movie said to “reimagine the iconic Latin American fable as an urgent metaphor for Guatemala’s recent history, and tears open the country’s unhealed political wounds to grieve a seldom discussed crime against humanity.” La Llorona comes to Shudder August 6.


Monsterland

Kelly Marie Tran will star in “Iron River, MI” an episode of Hulu’s upcoming series based on Nathan Ballingrud’s short story collection, North American Lake Monsters. According to THR, she plays Lauren, a woman who “returns to her small Michigan hometown to be married” where “she had managed to build a new life for herself after her best friend, Elena, went missing when they were 16.”

Loki

Showrunner Michael Waldron promises the upcoming Loki television series will lean into “unexpected” science-fiction territory, via an instagram story update.

We have a landing page on Disneyplus. And an old trailer. But I like the green nebula. It indicates that this is a science fiction (“sci-fi”) show. You know they say about “sci-fi”: Expect the unexpected when it comes to science fiction.

uh, I think you missed some pretty big news here. 15 episodes of Supermarket Sweep are on Netflix now!

https://www.glamour.com/story/supermarket-sweep-netflix-twitter-reactions

Supermarket Sweep, your favorite grocery store-themed show from the ’90s, is back on Netflix!

On Monday, July 9, the streaming platform announced it added 15 episodes of the classic game show that originally aired on ABC from 1965 to 1967 before being revived by other networks in the 1990s and early 2000s. (Though it’s been off the air in the U.S. for nearly two decades, there have also been several international versions.)

Not the series. Not a season. 15 episodes. 15. 15 probably random episodes.

So, we’re just out of entertainment. This is what it comes to when you’re stuck inside your house streaming content 24/7 and production on new content comes to a screeching halt. I figure we’ll have 5 episodes of My Mother the Car show up on Prime next month, and 7 episodes of Small Wonder on Hulu the month after.

I think we’re boned now.
