Enter the Stephen King-inspired world for yourself, as a new 360-degree interactive video lets you relive one of the season’s scariest scenes, and subsequently stay up for days on end!

There are not one, but two recent films about renowned psychological experiments: the first is The Stanford Prison Experiment, based on the project of the same name, which hits VOD this Friday and is currently in select theaters. Then there’s Experimenter, starring Peter Sarsgaard as Stanley Milgram, the social psychologist known for his controversial “obedience experiments.” The new trailer for Experimenter gives us a peek inside the mind of the provocative experimenter himself.
The only unfortunate thing about Show Me a Hero is the realization that David Simon’s latest HBO enterprise is a limited series.

Oh, and he also has a real great mustache.
The following report has been brought to you by the phrase “Hot damn.” The Wire creator David Simon has been developing a miniseries (albeit a limited one) for HBO for some time now, and today brings excellent news about Simon’s new project. Oscar Isaac is set to lead an impressive ensemble cast in Simon’s Show Me a Hero, which debuts later this summer on the network.
