Here's the thing about babies in film, they're often horrible and sometimes homicidal -- and we're not talking about the rom-com versions. Despite real-life infants, which are the quintessential images of innocence and hope for the future, many movie babies, especially horror movie babies, have all of our awful instincts and none of our refinement
Monsters have been a part of human culture since we invented the very concept of stories. They've been warnings. They've been metaphors. They've been exaggerations of reality. In some way or another, we're all scared of monsters
‘True Blood’ fans have once again been left at a loss, now that Bon Temps has been boarded off until season 7 bursts out in 2014.
