Whereas others are just back-burned due to being under major development or limited to a particular platform. Hence why you have to read up on this! Take notes. Prepare. And.... Perhaps subscribe to those streaming platforms?

    10 Creepy Cartoon Network Theories

    Since its debut in the early 90s, Cartoon Network has been a favorite channel among young viewers and even adult viewers as well because of the shows that aired on it.

    Top 5 Funniest Cursed Items in 'Annabelle Comes Home'

    Annabelle Comes Home is winding down its theatrical run after just over a month on the big screen and a successful run at the box office.

    'The Blair Witch Project' Director May Go Into the Forest Again Soon
