Horror fans are in all their glory as Halloween quickly approaches. Those looking to bolster their 31 Days of Halloween horror movie viewing should act now and join AMC’s Shudder, the biggest and best horror streaming service available. And I mean like right now! The service just announced that new members signing up for a year of Shudder can get 31% off annual subscriptions by visiting try.shudder.com/halloween2019. That’s a measly $3.28 per month in the U.S. and Canada, and Â£/â‚¬2.78 in the UK and Ireland. This extremely limited offer expires at midnight Pacific Time on Halloween (Thursday, October 31, 2019).
Shudder also just acquired the exclusive U.S. and Canadian distribution rights for Rob Zombie’s 3 From Hell, the conclusion to his Rejects trilogy. The film will premiere on Shudder in February of 2020, and will join other Zombie films such as Shudder Exclusive 31, House of 1,000 Corpses, and The Devil’s Rejects.

I love talking about movies with people, and so a matter that recently came up in discussion was a brainstorm/list of some of the most fucked up movies we’ve ever seen. While many suggested were ones I had seen, one stood out to me as one of those I’d always anticipated to see, but had never gotten around to it: Audition. So, taking the advice of a gypsy goddess, I dove back into my healthy obsession for horror and gore and challenging movies, and queued it up for my streaming review.
Audition is, in essence, a very deceiving movie. While it’s marketed and classified in the horror genre, the very cringe-inducing moments come much later in the film, though this does not diminish its impact. The story focuses on Shigeharu Aoyama (Ryo Ishibashi), a widower, who after many years of raising his son Shigehiko Aoyama (Tetsu Sawaki) on his own decides that it is time to begin dating again.
Fatalities are a crucial part of the Mortal Kombat video game franchise; the graphic and gruesome death of an opponent by your own hands has been satisfying gamers for years and is still going strong today.
But have you ever wondered what the Fatality finishing move would be for other classic video game characters like Mario, Link, or Pacman? Well, my friends, that day has now come. A hilarious new video has been released showing off the lost “audition tapes” of many different classic game characters, who use familiar elements from their own games to brutally end the life of a Mortal Kombat opponent.
You can see the video right now by continuing on below.
One of the most entertaining things to see when it comes to your favorite movies and TV shows is the audition videos of the cast and maybe even the auditions of famous stars who didn’t get a particular role.
While we don’t have any of those here, we do have plenty of the audition tapes of most of your favorite stars from ABC’s Lost. With the curtain set to fall on the show in just about 24-hours now, what better way to make a weekend of it than by witnessing the very beginnings of these characters and the stars who would play (some of) them. The auditions were commonly used as funny special features on the Lost DVDs, but if you have not seen them yet, now you have your chance.
