Hulu is stepping into the spotlight regarding its array of LGBTQ+ content and its latest offering comes as the continuation of the 2018 movie, Love, Simon. With Love, Victor, we follow a new character as he enters Simon's old high school a few years later. Similar themes of sexual identity hover over the show, but it serves as a solid follow-up to a groundbreaking major motion picture featuring, for the first time, a gay teen romance.
One major criticism of the horror genre as of late is that the genre simply isn't performing. With more blockbuster releases, and endless sequels within the same franchise, horror fans have become a bit disillusioned with the genre. Whether it's the same monsters, the same tropes, same characters, or same stories being played on repeat, it's safe to say that a lot of moviegoers go into horror films with low expectations.
We are truly living in a new age of horror cinema. While the genre has always included diversity and featured non-male lead characters, the genre has really taken a turn when it comes to black cinema. If you would have told someone just a decade ago that a horror movie about systemic racism would win an Academy Award, people probably would have thought you were dreaming. But it happened and diversity within the horror community has been at an all time high.
Nickelodeon was a much different channel back in the 90s. Millennials like me who grew up in the decade no doubt remember the abundance of awesome television game shows, comedy shows, and shows aimed at teens. One such inclusion that caused us younger kids to sleep with the lights on was Are You Afraid of the Dark?
Very rarely do we see the words "horror" and "musical" in the same sentence, but it's not something that has never happened before. After all, we've had hits such as The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, The Phantom of the Opera, and Little Shop of Horrors.
Audiences were first introduced to a film adaptation of the classic Parker Brothers murder-mystery game, Clue, back in 1985. Despite having a cast of comedic stars such as Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, and Martin Mull, the film was basically a flop at the box office and somewhat fell on its face. However, a continued cult following of the murder-comedy has kept it alive for over 30-years and it has began slowly rising in cult popularity. Even with that, and a forthcoming remake with Ryan Reynolds, there are still many people who have never sat down to watch Clue.
