Streaming bloody murder: 24-hours of Netflix horror

This Halloween, navigate this scary-movie marathon using the language of fear

Who has the time or motivation to seek out those rare, esoteric or obscure picks? As a product of Internet culture, if a movie's not readily available with a click of a button (or a nesting in the trusty Redbox a block away), chances are I'm not going to go looking for it.

Exploring ‘Doctor Benjamin Franklin’s Dream America’

A work of historical fiction with a speculative twist
