Helstrom, Ghost Rider Just the Start of Marvel TV's 'Terror' Series
By Colin Hickson
Earlier this year, it was announced that Marvel Television would bring two of Marvel's horror-centric characters, Ghost Rider and Hellstrom, to Hulu in their own series, the former of which will see Gabriel Luna reprise his role from the character's appearances on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. But, according to Marvel Television Executive Vice President and Head of Television Jeph Loeb, these two characters are only the beginning for the studio's foray into "terror" programming.

How 'The Terror: Infamy' Draws on Japanese Ghost Stories to Depict Real Historical Atrocities
By Reid Nakamura
The second season of AMC's horror anthology "The Terror" centers a story rarely told in the American mainstream — the mass incarceration of Japanese-Americans during World War II. But for many of those involved with the show, the story is a personal one.

"I've done a few other projects that have taken place in the internment camps," said "Greek" alum Derek Mio, who stars in "The Terror: Infamy" as Chester Nakayama, a young man whose family is uprooted and imprisoned along with 120,000 other people of Japanese ancestry. "But it was just kind of chilling to see the parallels between the character and my grandfather."

Ads Pulled for Gory Universal Thriller 'The Hunt' in Wake of Mass Shootings (Exclusive)
by Kim Masters, Tatiana Siegel
In the wake of a trio of deadly massacres, the studio is evaluating its strategy for the R-rated Blumhouse satire in which elites stalk "deplorables."
"Did anyone see what our ratfucker-in-chief just did?" one character asks early in the screenplay for The Hunt, a Universal Pictures thriller set to open Sept. 27. Another responds: "At least The Hunt's coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables."

In the aftermath of mass shootings within days of one another that shocked and traumatized the nation, Universal is re-evaluating its strategy for the certain-to-be-controversial satire. The violent, R-rated film from producer Jason Blum's Blumhouse follows a dozen MAGA types who wake up in a clearing and realize they are being stalked for sport by elite liberals.
