After summoning the unrelenting spirit of Candyman, one woman is forced to make a choice that will last an eternity; and with each passing moment, another innocent life will be slaughtered by the evil entity, until that choice is made...
Despite its perky, all-American teen persona, Archie Comics has a surprisingly long connection to the horror genre.
However, the incredible artist Matt Talbot, from New Hampshire, has taken this to a whole new level with his series of amazing Archie Comics pastiches, reimagining classic modern horror flicks as Archie titles.
I don't know about you, but I really wish these were real comic books.
You can find further examples of Matt's work over on his website.

Out of Mind casts an entertaining eye on the work of American writer H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937), one of the early 20th century’s masters of gothic-horror literature.
Made for Canadian television in 1998, the film offers an encounter with Lovecraft and enters into his world.
Engaging in a kind of game around the writer, the film playfully winks at some of the themes characteristic of his work: the occult, cursed books, monstrous creatures.
Out of Mind draws its inspiration from Lovecraft’s personal correspondence and many of his stories, carrying the viewer through a labyrinth “beyond the wall of sleep”.

The holiday event you can’t miss! Start streaming the first two episodes of Marvel Studios' Hawkeye, an original series from Marvel Studios, November 24 on Disney+.
If I'm understanding this right, Lightyear is the "in-Toy Story-universe" movie that inspired the Buzz Lightyear range of licenced spin-off toys. And I think this kind of world-building is brilliant!
And Captain America himself, Chris Evans, is voicing Buzz, so that's a cool bonus.
