There's this stylish film called Braid that's making the festival rounds that looks too wild to miss. It's called Braid and it's about two wanted women who decide to rob their wealthy psychotic friend who lives in the fantasy world they created as children and to take the money they have to take part in a deadly perverse game of make believe.

The film is directed by and written by Mitzi Peirone and stars Imogen Waterhouse Sarah Hay and Madeline Brewer.


One reviewer out of Tribeca recently reported that, "It’s difficult to define a film like Braid. Punk Alice In Wonderland exploitation? A Lynchian headtrip dashed with Ana Lily Amirpour’s sense of sensationalism? Pastel-blasted mind imprisonment thrills paced [Continued ...]

SciFi Wire - Tue, 05/01/2018 - 02:30

Today, April 30th, This Day in Twilight Zone History and The Twilight Zone Encyclopedia celebrate the birthday of actress Cloris Leachman, who turns 92 today.

To say that Agnes and her husband (John Larch) walk on egg shells every day is a great understatement.

The Simpsons has become the longest running scripted show in television history

SciFi Wire - Tue, 05/01/2018 - 01:36

For a while, nobody thought that the television record set by Gunsmoke would ever be broken — with 635 episodes (running over 20 seasons from 1955 to 1975), the only show that people thought could possibly have a chance was The Simpsons.
