“On August 28, 2003, 46-year-old pizza deliveryman Brian Wells walked into a PNC Bank in Erie, Pennsylvania, with a cane that was actually a shotgun and a bomb strapped to his body.

Demanding $250,000, he got approximately $8,000, but his getaway was stymied by responding police officers, who sat him down in the middle of a nearby road, where they quickly discovered that he wasnt lying about his explosive device. The thing was, the bomb was attached to a giant metal collar around his neck, and Brianwho was in possession of nine pages of rambling handwritten notes, some of which contained instructions for a scavenger hunt he was supposed to complete in order to release himself from the explosivedesperately wanted it removed. Its going to go off. Im not lying, he warned police, and before the bomb unit could arrive, go off it did, blowing him to kingdom come.

It was a sight straight out of a Saw sequeland so horrifying, it legitimately earns the designation unforgettable.

Wells fatal fate is depicted in stark video footage at the beginning of Evil Genius: The True Story of Americas Most Diabolical Bank Heist, and establishes the mood of callous violence and perplexing treachery that defines Netflixs latest true-crime gem. Executive produced by Wild Wild Countrys Mark and Jay Duplass, and written and directed by Barbara Schroeder (alongside co-director and executive producer Trey Borzillieri), this four-part documentary series is yet another of the streaming services based-on-real-events triumphs; a mystery so bizarre and confounding, one wouldnt dare write it as fiction for fear of having it labeled unrealistic. Its no surprise that Schroeder avoids excessive aesthetic embroidery for her materialthe insanity speaks for itself.

As is soon revealed by Evil Genius, Wells wound up with his collar after delivering a pizza to a remote tower site, where he claimed (shortly before his demise) that some African-American men had affixed the contraption to his neck. There were signs of struggle at that location, but as with the…”

We know better than anyone – the first female U.S. President will have a mighty task proving herself. Claire Underwood faces an onslaught of skepticism and enmity as she ascends the highest office in the land on House of Cards, and the final trailer for Season 6 shows her inspiring fear among those who oppose her.

Claire (Robin Wright) takes over for her late husband Frank (Kevin Spacey, fired for allegations of sexual assault and misconduct), only to be immediately faced with doubts from pundits and the public about her “ability to lead” (and no doubt her temperament, emotional stability, and more). But the greatest mistake her enemies make – as the trailer notes – is underestimating her.

House of Cards‘ final season premieres Nov. 2.

Netflix is planning a sci-fi universe based on the novel ‘Recursion’

Published

“Netflix is making the most out of its deals with TV legend Shonda Rhimesand Planet of the Apes/Cloverfield director Matt Reeves by putting them together for one ambitious project. The creators will work on a feature film and a TV universe based on Blake Crouch’s upcoming sci-fi thriller novel Recursion. It’s unclear what the streaming platform means by “TV universe” — it could be a full-blown series, but it could also just be a limited series that expands on the feature film. According to Netflix Recursion is about a “save-the-world sci-fi thriller, an epic romance, and an intricate police procedural,” which makes it sound like a cross between Cloverfieldand How to Get Away with Murder……………………”
