As with most unfortunate news, this one comes to us abruptly with no warning. The great Wes Craven, the legendary horror filmmaker who brought us films such as A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream, has died at 76. Craven had been battling brain cancer and passed away in his home in Los Angeles.

There was a lot to dissect from the Hannibal series finale, and while we covered a lot of it in our full review, there’s still so much that deserves another look. While the future of Hannibal remains cloudy, “The Wrath of the Lamb” carved up the absolute best, most perfect farewell for the series imaginable. Here, we take a closer look at the greatest and craziest moments from the finale.
All the fuss over the last couple of months about NBC’s cancellation of Hannibal may have been distracting us from just how perfect Season 3 has been — from the European-flavored surrealist horror of the first half of the season to the slow-simmering brutality of the back half, creator Bryan Fuller has not only expertly crafted the perfect ending, but he’s also created one of the greatest love stories of contemporary television. Do we really need another season of Hannibal?
We’ve been hearing some great things about the Goosebumps movie, and the latest trailer really supports that spooky-kooky-fun vibe, packed with monsters and laughs in equal measure. Not only does Goosebumps bring the creatures of R.L. Stine’s classic horror novels to life, but it also puts Stine himself in the center of it all in a metatextual monster mash.
The “killer kid” is one of horror cinema’s most provocative concepts because the mere concept gleefully pushes as many buttons as it possibly can. No matter what happens, a symbol of youthful innocence is going to be impossibly corrupted, especially if the adults decide to fight back against their pint-sized aggressors. The upcoming horror comedy Cooties isn’t shy about the fact that it’s about zombie children murdering their way across an elementary school and a new piece of art from the film doubles down on this glorious bad taste.
As Fear The Walking Dead explores a different angle of the zombie apocalypse well-removed from Rick Grimes and Alexandria, crossover rumors have repeatedly flown back and forth. That flight has just become literal, as Season 6 will host a series of Walking Dead shorts set on an airplane, introducing a new character for Fear The Walking Dead Season 2. Confused yet?
It’s no secret that Netflix original horror show Hemlock Grove hasn’t quite captured the critical raves of its brethren, though the streaming service will at least finish the story with a 10-episode final run. So, when can we expect Hemlock Season 3 to drop a whole new mess of bloody weirdness? Watch the final season teaser to find out!
Mileage may vary as to which American Horror Story season proved the strongest, though we’ve at least grown accustomed to their yearly Halloween presence. That is, until series creator Ryan Murphy crafts his scariest move of all, potentially placing two separate fall and spring seasons of American Horror Story in 2016.
Hannibal may yet enjoy his last meal later on tonight with the airing of Season 3 finale “The Wrath of the Lamb” (or on Saturday for American viewers), and we may have a taste of the fourth season. Our beloved cannibal appears to be on the lam (heh) once more in a new trailer for the Season 3 finale.
American Horror Story: Hotel had nothing to show by its presence at Comic-Con 2015, but with filming in full swing, Season 5 is dripping an elevator’s worth of fresh blood. Not only do we have our first photos of the cast, but also fresh details on a “drillbit dildo” killer, connections to the first season, and much more.
