    Cult of Outrage: 'Walking Dead' Star Slams T-shirt Controversy: 'People Are Stupid'

    Jeffrey Dean Morgan is shocked and stunned by The Walking Dead T-shirt controversy — shocked and stunned, that is, that anybody would find the shirt controversial in the first place. To recap: U.K. department chain Primark pulled a Walking Dead T-shirt (image below) from its stores after a customer complained the clothing item is “racist” and “offensive.” The shirt featured Negan’s signature Lucille baseball bat and his victim-selecting rhyme, “Eeny meeny miny moe, catch a tiger by the toe…” The problem? About 100 years ago, that rhyme commonly used the N-word instead of “tiger.”

    This Year's Adaptation of Stephen King's 'It' Will Be Scary and Rated R

    One of the many problems with the beloved 1990 adaptation of Stephen King’s It is that it was made-for-television, which served to rob the source material of much of its terror. I’m personally of the mind that the mini-series adaptation left much to be desired, and the good news with Andy Muschietti’s upcoming feature adaptation is that it’s not going to be pulling any punches.

    Horror films deserve Oscar nominations too

    Another year, another list of Oscar nominations. And yet again, as with most years in the history of the Academy Awards, not a single horror movie has been nominated. Sure, the dearth of award-winning horror flicks is nothing new, but as the genre continues to turn out excellent art, it's becoming harder and harder to justify the lack of awards recognition. Before diving into the numbers, here are some of the best horror flicks of 2016 that didn't receive any recognition from the Academy and should have.

    Trump too hard to satirise, say South Park creators

    The Donald Trump administration is too difficult to satirise because it is funny enough on its own, say Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of South Park. While the most recent series of their animated sitcom featured a character that clearly resembles Mr Trump, the pair made the decision to "back off" making fun of the latest US political events. "It's tricky now because satire has become reality," Parker told 7.30.

    When ‘The Simpsons’ Came Out of the Closet

    Twenty years ago, filmmaker John Waters showed up on Fox’s animated sitcom and kick-started a gay revolution on TV. John Waters had no idea. He didn’t understand the power of the greatest television series of all time until kids started recognizing him in public. Twenty years ago, before his cult classic Hairspray was turned into a Broadway smash, The Pope of Trash was largely known for making movies from which parents shielded their children’s eyes. That began to change soon after February 16, 1997, the night Waters appeared on The Simpsons.

    People, the final frontier: how sci-fi is taking on the human condition

    Call it the Tim Peake effect. Science fiction has always been as much about the human condition as saving the world from an alien invasion, but now a new wave of films and books are taking that interest one step further and developing an existentialist genre set in outer space.

    Netflix's gamble pays off as subscriptions soar

    Hundreds of movies disappeared from Netflix over 2016, the result of the streaming service’s decision to end several key content deals with top studios and distributors. It was a brave move - particularly given that its main rivals, such as Hulu, jumped at the chance to take on some of those titles Netflix decided it no longer wanted. The reason for the cull? Original content.

    “BRAAAM!”: The Sound that Invaded the Hollywood Soundtrack

    You walk into a local multiplex a few minutes after the lights have dimmed. You find your seat to the first trailer, some confection involving superheroes or zombies. As the light flickers over you, strings churn from the speakers, interrupted at certain intervals by a massive blast of indistinguishable brass, like an alphorn next to an amplifier.
