  Halloween viewing guide: Scary movies and TV in cinemas and on streaming services in October It’s the scariest time of the year and so, as ever, movie studios and streaming platforms are plunging their hands into the darkest corners of their catalogues to uncover the most terrifying films and TV shows they can unveil to the world. Read more: Best horror films of 2019 With the majority of UK cinemas now open, there are a handful of new horror films scaring their way through multiplexes, including the terrific British effort Saint Maud. On the streaming side, Netflix has pressed the Mike Flanagan button for The Haunting of Bly Manor, as well as another take on Rebecca and the none-more-horrifying prospect of an Adam Sandler comedy.

As the new supernatural horror film “The Nun” prepares to haunt theaters, here’s a look at 20 movie nuns that are guaranteed to give you the creeps . Audiences first met the eerie title character of “The Nun” in the sequel to James Wan’s horror hit “The Conjuring.” Sporting a ghostly complexion, a bad

Good for you! Your options include checking out the current political news cycle (truly terrifying!!) or

Writing an appreciation of Sean Connery feels inevitably inadequate compared to experiencing the real thing. To glimpse his magnetism, you might turn to a photograph of him in a tailored suit, leaning against an Aston Martin. You’d probably get more of his menacing charisma by pulling up the “Chicago way” scene from “The Untouchables.”

It might be enough simply to say: The king is dead.

The Haunting of Bly Manor release date, trailer, news, and more on Hill House season 2

  The Haunting of Bly Manor release date, trailer, news, and more on Hill House season 2 Here's everything we know about The Haunting of Hill House season 2, including potential release date and more There's been a disturbance in the force. Almost every major movie which was set for release in 2020 has been pushed back until 2021, meaning our list of upcoming movies is shifting around like sand in a desert storm. It's a struggle to keep up! Most recently, Disney and Warner Bros. decided to delay their superhero movies, Black Widow and Wonder Woman 1984. Looks like Universal had the right idea in early 2020 when they decided to immediately move Fast 9 back a year. That seemed extreme at the time – now it feels like common sense.

I love most kinds of horror movies , but creepy films are probably my favorite. Or rather, my least favorite, because they give me nightmares and Set in an urban tower block, this film demonstrates that horror can strike anywhere, not just in spooky old mansions in the middle of the countryside.

But unlike horror movie monsters that can be defeated by saying “it’s just a movie ,” the savage tales on this list are very real. In the cover of compulsory darkness, Gordon Frederick Cummins terrorized London in a six-day spree of murder and assault. A total of seven women were attacked.

As a lion of movies for half a century, Connery’s talent was manifest. He was famously cast as James Bond without a screen test. It was that obvious. And from then on, in even the lesser films, Connery, who died Saturday at 90, was never out of place on screen. His presence was absolute. Noting his supreme confidence, the late film critic Pauline Kael once wrote, “I don’t know any man since Cary Grant that men have wanted to be so much.”

As a more earthy, macho movie-star ideal, Connery was so beloved that he was shared, like folklore, between generations. It helped that he never seemed to be appealing to the audience, or to anybody, for anything. With raised eyebrows and roguish wisecracks, there was little that Connery (nearly always the lead) didn’t command. And to a certain extent, that cocksureness shaped his career, too.

Connery, 32 when “Dr. No” came out,” had already lived through World War II. Born into poverty in Edinburgh, he left school at age 13 during the war and worked as a laborer and a bricklayer before he donned the tuxedo. He saw Bond, too, as a product of the war.

“Bond came on the scene after the War, at a time when people were fed up with rationing and drab times and utility clothes and a predominantly gray color in life,” Connery, who served in the British Navy as a teenager, told Playboy in 1965. “Along comes this character who cuts right through all that like a very hot knife through butter, with his clothing and his cars and his wine and his women.”

Long after achieving fame, Connery contentedly gave it up. He spent his final two decades cheerfully retired in the Caribbean, often playing golf with his wife, unimpressed and little tempted by more modern Hollywood productions. (He said he was “fed up with the idiots.”)


Gallery: 20 horror movies so bad they’re funny (Espresso)

A good horror movie should surprise, scare, or make us shiver in disgust. Sometimes, though, horror movies actually make us giggle or turn away in embarrassment, which, of course, is unfortunate … unless the horror is so awful that it turns into comedy! In preparation for Halloween, here is a list of 20 horror movies that are so bad they’re funny.

There was irony in that. Connery, as the original cinema Bond, did much to make the style and tone of today’s movie franchises — even if few carry a lick of Connery’s danger. His Bond heir Daniel Craig on Saturday credited Connery with helping “create the modern blockbuster.” It’s hard to imagine the suave secret-service spy would have ever become a cultural force if the franchise hadn’t from the start traded on its star’s brutal charm. Connery crucially added humor to Ian Fleming’s pages, along with a dash of cruelty.

In time for Halloween, Guardian writers have picked out their favourite underseen scary movies , from Brazil’s first horror film to a found footage gem.

I tried to concentrate on movies that are creepy , atmospheric, and suspenseful as opposed outright gore-fests. A boating accident runs a young man and woman ashore in a decrepit Spanish fishing town which they discover is in the grips of an ancient sea god and its monstrous half human offspring.

Connery’s Bond became etched as an icon of its era, one increasingly distant from today. He was the epitome of a dashing, womanizing, macho image that loomed over the second half of the 20th century. Connery differed from his character in many respects but not all. In that same Playboy interview, he explained why he believed hitting a woman with an open fist was justifiable.

Bond is the first word on Connery but it’s certainly not the last. Against the pleas of fans, he departed the character at 41 (he was later coaxed back for 1983’s “Never Say Never Again”), refusing to be typecast. His best and most interesting work all came after.

“The Hill” (1965) was the first a trio of films with Sidney Lumet (the others were “The Anderson Tapes” and “The Offense”), and while it’s less seen than many of Connery’s, it remains possibly the best expression of the actor’s rugged power. He plays a prisoner of indominable strength and defiance jailed in a sadistic British Army WWII military prison in the scorching Libyan desert.

He was a soldier again a decade later in John Huston’s “The Man Who Would Be King,” based on the Rudyard Kipling short story, playing a military officer who’s embraced as a god in Kafiristan, an impression he struggles to maintain. It’s a perfect role and performance for Connery, whose best work came when he — this former bodybuilder of unimpeachable force and magnetism — was humbled.

How The Addams Family Values inverts the ideal American household to make for the perfect Halloween movie

  How The Addams Family Values inverts the ideal American household to make for the perfect Halloween movie This Halloween, make sure you watch Addams Family ValuesWhen cartoonist Charles Addams created the fictional family in 1938, he dreamed them up as a “satirical inversion” of the ideal American household. A wealthy clan living in a big, dark, gothic house, they are obsessed with all things macabre. Originally a one-panel cartoon running in the New Yorker, the Addams Family has been hugely influential – spawning TV series, films, books, and video games. Their impact has been widespread, even influencing goth culture at large.

Connery’s confidence came through most dramatically when it was challenged by foes more formidable than a Bond villain. In his Oscar-winning performance in Brian De Palma’s Prohibition-era crime film, “The Untouchables,” he’s alive to Al Capone’s threat, telling Kevin Costner’s Treasury Department agent: “You see what I’m saying is, what are you prepared to do?”

Accepting the Academy Award, Connery addressed his wife since 1975, Micheline Roquebrune. “In winning this award, it creates a certain dilemma because I had decided that if I had the good fortune to win, that I would give it to my wife, who deserves it,” he said. “But, this evening, I discovered backstage that they’re worth $15,000 — now I am not so sure. Micheline, I am only kidding. It’s yours.”

Connery aged well as an actor, crafting more diverse and inquisitive portraits of masculinity. He played an aging Robin Hood, with Audrey Hepburn, in “Robin and Marian” (1976), a combustible submarine captain in John McTiernan’s “The Hunt for Red October” and a loveably playful father to Harrison Ford in Steven Spielberg’s “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” (1989).

Another “Indiana Jones,” Connery said, had been the only thing that really tempted him to come out of retirement. That could be because the glint of mischief that accompanied nearly every Connery performance was so present in “The Last Crusade.” Connery always left you feeling if not shaken then very happily stirred.

The Mandalorian is rewarding Star Wars fans – but its hero has been pushed to the side .
The Mandalorian is introducing Clone Wars characters at the expense of its own leadA New Hope aside, Star Wars has always required some prior knowledge. You can’t watch the sequels without appreciating what led to Luke’s descent into becoming the galaxy’s grouchiest hermit, nor can you enjoy (?) the prequels without Anakin’s irony-laced journey to the Dark Side. But The Mandalorian’s sudden reliance on knowledge of spin-off series The Clone Wars is potentially worrisome.
