“As Indian cinema’s worldwide audience grows, most people are acquainted exclusively with Bollywood – Hindi-language romantic dramas full of dazzling song-and-dance numbers that may or may not be related to plot.

But Indian cinema has always been more than that, just as Italian film extends beyond neorealism or and the French New Wave is just one piece of a rich history. Cinephiles may know Satyajit Ray’s Apu trilogy, which offers a glimpse of the type of gritty auteurship that doesn’t pay the Bollywood bills, but speaks to some truly fine artistry. Indian short films remain a source of this ingenuity and excellence, and Netflix’s Lust Stories is a fresh new installment.

Like Bombay Talkies before it, Lust Stories is an anthology of short films from known Indian directors Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee, and Karan Johar. They are exceedingly simple stories: a teacher’s obsession with…..”

From the teams behind Get Out, Insidious, and Udta Punjabcomes Netflix’s first original Indian horror series, Ghoul. And it looks pretty damn terrifying.

Let the witch hunt begin.

The upcoming reboot of the classic Nickelodeon sitcom Sabrina the Teenage Witch is going dark as hell. In the first poster for The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, starring Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka, makes it clear that this isn’t your mama’s teen witch. Cause this time around, Sabrina’s not afraid to let her Lucifer flag fly.

It appears that instead of dotting the ‘i’ in her name with a heart or some such nonsense, this Sabrina is straight up repping a pentagram. We could not be more down for this transformation. Like, yas girl! Summon all that lady power with a strong red lip!

Netflix describes the reboot of as a reimagining of the much more family-friendly sitcom witch we knew from childhood. It’s a “dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft,” with tonal aspirations toward Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist.

‘The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ looks bloody and wicked and we’re extremely here for it

We here at Mashable are firm supporters of the recent witchening of pop culture. Last year saw the rise of the Basic Witch, but this year is all about leveling up to full on blood sacrifice.

Created by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the man behind the gritty Archie reboot Riverdale, the show will revolve around “Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature — half-witch, half-mortal — while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.”

Consider us already part of the coven, Sabrina.Read more: https://mashable.com/2018/07/10/chilling-adventures-of-sabrina-teenage-witch-reboot-poster/
