By Zach Schlein
An era of American television ended in September.

The Venture Bros

Its death came quietly, with news of its passing drowned out from all sides by crumbling institutions, environmental disasters, a historic pandemic and pervasive social unrest. As with all matters of public interest in 2020, its demise was announced via Twitter.

After spanning three presidencies and surviving several cultural sea changes, The Venture Bros. was cancelled after 17 years on the air.

James Wan dubbed King Of Horror
By Travis Bean
For years and years—spanning Halloween season after Halloween season—the question has persisted: what is the scariest movie ever? There are movies that are tense, and there are movies that are suspenseful—and then there are movies that scare the ever-living daylights out of you.

*FeoNote for the purists: This title could have gone to Jamie Lee Curtis for HALLOWEEN in 1978 - but despite her gunplay on Michael Meyers (and his subsequent immolation and beheading to name a few) he never dies! Throughout the sequels, Curtis' character of Laurie Strode remains a victim of the same antagonist while Weaver's Ripley destroys all who threaten her.
