B+

Almost everything in Vernon Chatman’s shuddering body-horror of work—from MTV2’s cult classic Wonder Showzen, to Adult Swim’s ugly-as-a-point-of-pride Xavier: Renegade Angel, to the backwoods soap-opera horror of The Heart, She Holler—has carried the half-logical madness of a really great nightmare.

Suggesting one possible way the Academy might get out of the increasingly difficult question of “Who the fuck is going to host next year’s Oscars, huh?” that it’s currently facing—i.e., “Pick two guys with so many skeletons, dead wives, and tuna in their closets that no one can choose just one thing to yell at them…

Trailer for this new James Gunn-produced horror project asks: What if Superman was the Antichrist?

James Gunn has laid relatively low since Disney—motivated by the baying, bad-faith hounds of the internet far right wing—booted him from his beloved Guardians Of The Galaxy franchise.

Kevin Hart responds to Oscars backlash via tried-and-true "groggy, shirtless Instagram video" strategy

Well, that was fast: It was just two nights ago when we reported that the Oscars had finally found someone—anyone!—willing to host them this year, in the form of certified movie star and comedian Kevin Hart. That’s also roughly how long it took for people who’d been following Hart’s career for a while now to note that…
