Syfy dipped into surreal horror last fall with Channel Zero: Candle Cove, based on a Creepypasta story about a children's TV program that made people do very bad things. A new story informs the anthology show's second season, No-End House, and it looks quite different — albeit equally as disturbing.
Video: There's a murderer on the loose in Kill Me Please — and the teenage girls in the Rio neighbourhood favoured by the killer react with both fear and fascination. Anita Rocha da Silveira's debut feature mixes dark menace and burgeoning sexuality to achieve what looks to be a distinctly stylish result.
Last week, the 2017 World Yo-Yo Championship was held in Reykjavík, Iceland. And as in years past, watching these performers, including world champion Shu Takada, can only lead you to a single conclusion: these competitors were probably born with yo-yos attached to their arms.
We've already had a tiny glimpse of the first Godzilla anime movie, but this new trailer gives us an even fuller look at the film's crazy premise — namely, that Godzilla defeated humanity, forcing the remnants to escape to outer space. But it also gives us our best look at this newest version of big G himself, in all his anime glory.
The Defenders debuts on Netflix this week, bringing together four different characters and TV shows into one giant super mega crossover. For anyone who needs a reminder of what the heck these characters have been doing, or maybe skipped Iron Fist for relatively obvious reasons, here's a video crash course.
Last week, an amateur drone pilot landed his DJI quadcopter on the deck of Britain's newest and most advanced aircraft carrier. The incident was accidental, but highlights the irony of how difficult it is to neutralise threats from smaller aircraft like drones that are slowly filling the skies. But perhaps modifying a missile that can hit speeds of mach 2.2 isn't the best solution to the problem?
There's a moment in the finale when the characters get a chance to breathe. To take it all in and take stock of their lives and the circumstances that brought them to that one specific instance. For a show as high concept as Orphan Black, with its clones and genetic mutants and world wide conspiracies of eugenics, it's remarkable how little the concept itself ultimately mattered. From its schlocky sci-fi framework these actors, led by the incomparable Tatiana Maslany, built something excruciatingly human.
The funny thing about seeing all of Netflix's Defenders fighting together is that when you think about it, they all kinda have a variation of the same archetypical superpower. The Defenders aren't just the Marvel Cinematic Universe's street-level heroes, they all punch things really hard — and that's part of what makes them so unique.
There are plenty of people who enjoy the warm sadness cowboy drink known as whiskey. While some might have a John Wayne instinct to drink it neat, the real aficionados know that adding a few drops of water to the drink can improve and expand its flavour profile. Now, in the great whiskey war of whether or not one should add water, some chemists have chosen a side: they say yes, you should add water to your whiskey.
What was life really like here on planet Earth before animals were big enough to leave fossils behind? How did living things turn from dinky capsules of genetic material into the intelligent, complex organisms that do things like fart and type curse words into posts on the internet? Scientists think they have found the answer... in algae steroids.
The upcoming fighting game pitting the heroes and villains of the Marvel Universe and Capcom's legendary roster of video game stars already revealed that its story is going to be a bizarre mashup of the two worlds. But even with that going on around them, somehow Steve and Tony still find the time to beat each other up.
Despite our squabbles here on Earth, the universe is full of so much beauty it's almost stupid. Jupiter is perhaps the most unreasonably beautiful thing in our entire solar system, and it's not shy about flexing. Recently, citizen scientists/JunoCam superstars Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran created one of the most incredible enhancements of a Jupiter pic we've ever seen. It's rare that Jupiter out-Jupiters itself, but here we are.
