A Group of Kids Fight Off Vampires in Trailer for Netflix’s VAMPIRES VS. THE BRONX

Netflix is kicking off the Halloween season with an upcoming film that they’ve produced titled Vampires Vs. Bronx, and we’ve got a fun trailer to share for it with you today! The story follows a group of young friends from the Bronx who come together to fight to save their neighborhood from a band of blood-sucking vampires.

I’m in! I like the concept, I liked what I saw in the trailer, and this looks like it just looks like it’s going to be some good fun! I was actually pleasantly surprised by what I saw in the trailer! Here’s a brief synopsis:

Three gutsy kids from a rapidly gentrifying Bronx neighborhood stumble upon a sinister plot to suck all the life from their beloved community.

Vampires vs. The Bronx stars Jaden Michael, Gerald W. Jones III, Gregory Diaz IV, Cliff “Method Man” Smith, Shea Whigham, Coco Jones, Joel “The Kid Mero” Martinez, Chris Redd, Vladimir Caamano, Jeremie Harris, Adam David Thompson, Judy Marte, Richard Bekins, and Zoe Saldana.

The film is directed by Oz Rodriguez, with a script co-written by Blaise Hemingway. The movie hits Netflix on October 2nd, later this week.


Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #54 drops this Wednesday, and it’s going to be big. The penultimate comic of the series (before it splits) will bring in a brand new bad guy that we get to meet in the preview below. Called the Empyreal, this thing seems like really bad news. Do you think the Omega Rangers will be working with him in the future? I guess we’ll probably find out in either Mighty Morphin or Power Rangers.

While the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers battle Lord Zedd’s DARK RANGERS, the Omega Rangers come face to face with an all new enemy – one that threatens to destroy all life in the galaxy… and already has a head start!

MMPR #54 is written by Ryan Parrott with art by Moisés Hidalgo. You’ll be able to grab your physical copy from local comic shops and a digital copy from outlets like comiXology on September 30.











CBS All Access Gives Season Order to Comedy True Crime DocuSeries FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE

for heaven's sake.jpg

The streaming service CBS All Access has placed an order for a true crime comedy docuseries titled For Heaven’s Sake. The series was created by Mike Mildon and Jackson Rowe (Trophy Husbands), who also star in the series, which attempts to solve the 85-year old case of Mildon’s missing great-great-uncle.

Here’s the synopsis:

The series will follow the search for Harold Heaven, who mysteriously disappeared from his remote cabin in Ontario, Canada, in the winter of 1934. While local police searched the nearby woods and dredged the adjacent lake, Harold was never found nor heard from again. The case was unceremoniously closed as a likely suicide. 85 years later, his great-great-nephew, Mike, attempts to solve the case, with the help of his extended family and true-crime-obsessed best friend, Jackson.

Julie McNamara, executive vice president and head of programming for CBS All Access, said:

“The true-crime genre may never be the same as best friends Mike and Jackson rely on their real-life bond and total lack of crime-solving experience to try and figure out what happened to Mike’s great-great uncle Harold. We couldn’t be in better hands than with this hilarious duo.”

This sounds funny, crazy, and super interesting. It’s a cool angle that the hosts actually have a personal connection to the case. I can’t wait to see if it gets solved. Does this sound like an intriguing docuseries to you?

Sadly, the moment doesn’t last long as Tai has to go to class and Matt says he has other things to do. You can tell that Agumon and Gabumon are pretty sad that their reunions were cut short, but at least there are T.K. and Kari. Don’t forget that on October 3, there’s a special viewing party for fans to enjoy the film with members of the cast.

  • The Once and Future Witches

    • By Alix E. Harrow

    • Publication Date: October 13

In 1893, there’s no such thing as witches. There used to be, in the wild, dark days before the burnings began, but now witching is nothing but tidy charms and nursery rhymes. If the modern woman wants any measure of power, she must find it at the ballot box.

But when the Eastwood sisters–James Juniper, Agnes Amaranth, and Beatrice Belladonna–join the suffragists of New Salem, they begin to pursue the forgotten words and ways that might turn the women’s movement into the witch’s movement. Stalked by shadows and sickness, hunted by forces who will not suffer a witch to vote-and perhaps not even to live-the sisters will need to delve into the oldest magics, draw new alliances, and heal the bond between them if they want to survive.

There’s no such thing as witches. But there will be.

  • Black Sun

    • By Rebecca Roanhorse

    • Publication Date: October 13

In the holy city of Tova, the winter solstice is usually a time for celebration and renewal, but this year it coincides with a solar eclipse, a rare celestial event proscribed by the Sun Priest as an unbalancing of the world.

Meanwhile, a ship launches from a distant city bound for Tova and set to arrive on the solstice. The captain of the ship, Xiala, is a disgraced Teek whose song can calm the waters around her as easily as it can warp a man’s mind. Her ship carries one passenger. Described as harmless, the passenger, Serapio, is a young man, blind, scarred, and cloaked in destiny. As Xiala well knows, when a man is described as harmless, he usually ends up being a villain.

Crafted with unforgettable characters, Rebecca Roanhorse has created an epic adventure exploring the decadence of power amidst the weight of history and the struggle of individuals swimming against the confines of society and their broken pasts in the most original series debut of the decade.

  • The Silence

    • By Don DeLillo

    • Publication Date: October 20

Don DeLillo completed this novel just weeks before the advent of Covid-19. The Silence is the story of a different catastrophic event. Its resonances offer a mysterious solace.

It is Super Bowl Sunday in the year 2022. Five people, dinner, an apartment on the east side of Manhattan. The retired physics professor and her husband and her former student waiting for the couple who will join them from what becomes a dramatic flight from Paris. The conversation ranges from a survey telescope in North-central Chile to a favorite brand of bourbon to Einstein’s 1912 Manuscript on the Special Theory of Relativity.

Then something happens and the digital connections that have transformed our lives are severed.

What follows is a dazzling and profoundly moving conversation about what makes us human. Never has the art of fiction been such an immediate guide to our navigation of a bewildering world. Never have DeLillo’s prescience, imagination, and language been more illuminating and essential.

Established in 2025, the purpose of the new organization was simple: To advocate for the world’s future generations and to protect all living creatures, present and future. It soon became known as the Ministry for the Future, and this is its story.

From legendary science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson comes a vision of climate change unlike any ever imagined.

Told entirely through fictional eye-witness accounts, The Ministry For The Future is a masterpiece of the imagination, the story of how climate change will affect us all over the decades to come.

  • A Wild Winter Swan

    • By Gregory Maguire

    • Publication Date: October 6

Following her brother’s death and her mother’s emotional breakdown, Laura now lives on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, in a lonely townhouse she shares with her old-world, strict, often querulous grandparents. But the arrangement may be temporary. The quiet, awkward teenager has been getting into trouble at home and has been expelled from her high school for throwing a record album at a popular girl who bullied her. When Christmas is over and the new year begins, Laura may find herself at boarding school in Montreal.

Nearly unmoored from reality through her panic and submerged grief, Laura is startled when a handsome swan boy with only one wing lands on her roof. Hiding him from her ever-bickering grandparents, Laura tries to build the swan boy a wing so he can fly home. But the task is too difficult to accomplish herself. Little does Laura know that her struggle to find help for her new friend parallels that of her grandparents, who are desperate for a distant relative’s financial aid to save the family store.

As he explores themes of class, isolation, family, and the dangerous yearning to be saved by a power greater than ourselves, Gregory Maguire conjures a haunting, beautiful tale of magical realism that illuminates one young woman’s heartbreak and hope as she begins the inevitable journey to adulthood.

  • Attack Surface

    • By Cory Doctorow

    • Publication Date: October 13

Most days, Masha Maximow was sure she’d chosen the winning side.

In her day job as a counterterrorism wizard for an transnational cybersecurity firm, she made the hacks that allowed repressive regimes to spy on dissidents, and manipulate their every move. The perks were fantastic, and the pay was obscene.

Just for fun, and to piss off her masters, Masha sometimes used her mad skills to help those same troublemakers evade detection, if their cause was just. It was a dangerous game and a hell of a rush. But seriously self-destructive. And unsustainable.

When her targets were strangers in faraway police states, it was easy to compartmentalize, to ignore the collateral damage of murder, rape, and torture. But when it hits close to home, and the hacks and exploits she’s devised are directed at her friends and family–including boy wonder Marcus Yallow, her old crush and archrival, and his entourage of naïve idealists–Masha realizes she has to choose.

And whatever choice she makes, someone is going to get hurt.
