Fear is the Mind-Killer for Legendary’s New Dune Development Deal

By JoshuaMacDougall on

Put on your Stillsuit and mount your sandworm – Legendary Entertainment has acquired the film and television rights to Frank Herbert’s Dune. In the past, the novel was made into a film in the ’80s directed by David Lynch and starring Kyle MacLachlan and a miniseries on SyFy (then the Sci Fi Channel) in the early 2000s, starring …

Review: Thankskilling

By Alyse Stanley on

The concept is one viewers have no doubt seen before: a group of star-crossed teens on a road trip (as we all know, Thanksgiving break being the peak time for co-ed shenanigans) tailed by a murderous…turkey?
