Best Two-Way Mirror Scare Prank Featuring THE CONJURING 2 NUN [Video]
James Wan created a terrific horror entity in The Nun featured in The Conjuring 2 (2016). Here is what I think is the best video yet featuring the horror character. Participants were led into a room which they thought was a waiting area for an interview about the film.

The Soska Sisters HELLEVATOR Season 2 Premiere Episode Review
GSN’s Hellevator Season 2 premieres Friday, October 7, 2016, at 9:00 pm ET/PT. We were thrilled to be granted access to watch the first episode from the new season. Hellevator is one of those TV shows that combines both horror and game show into one. The first series snuck up on me and quickly became a household favorite of mine resulting in us binge watching the entire tv show on Hulu. So I bet you are wondering my thoughts on the new season of Hellevator.

Ghost Rider Featured in New Poster for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Season 4
Are you still watching ABC’s Agents of SHIELD and are you looking forward to watching the new season? Marvel and ABC’s Agents of SHIELD Season 4 will feature Ghost Rider. The fourth season will have fewer cast members than the previous season 3 which should make the subplots more manageable and a little less complicated in having to flesh out each character and still deliver a terrific story. This poster features Gabriel Luna‘s Robbie Reyes as Ghost Rider and his Ghost Rider Hell Charger. The second news item is the September 20, 2016, premiere date and the new time at 10:00 pm EST, ouch, why so late at night?
Netflix / Mike Flanagan Push Forward with Stephen King's GERALD'S GAME Film Adaptation
Director Mike Flanagan (Before I Wake (2016), Hush (2016), Oculus (2013), Absentia (2011)) was originally pursued to direct the Stephen King film adaptation of Gerald’s Game (2017) since 2014. Netflix then put the film on hold because the story is a little hard to see the potential as the story revolves around a woman who is chained to a bed for the majority of the film. The woman accidently kills her husband leaving her chained to the bed and eventually she gives in to the voices in her head. Not only has Netflix agreed to produce the film, but they have also agreed to give Mike Flanagan complete freedom to make the film how he wants. This news comes after the success that Flanagan’s Hush (2016) film has received on Netflix streaming service even getting a positive tweet from Stephen King. This all sounds great, and I cannot wait to see the first set of promo material.

GRIMM Cancelled with Season 6 as Series Finale!?
NBC’s Grimm Season 6 will premiere on January 6, 2016, with a shortened season six. Season 5 seemed to be heading to a smooth conclusion with news of the show ending with season six a little expected.

The big question now is whether NBC will give us another horror tv series or will they give up on the genre. What do you think, is it time to end Grimm?
