Can you hear that? The sound of “Unchained Melody” wafting gently through the air and around your extensive collection of nostalgic 90s memorabilia?  According to Deadline, Ghost, everyone’s favorite story about murder, true love and pottery sex is getting the TV adaptation treatment via writers Akiva Goldman (Fringe, The Da Vinci Code, Batman & Robin) and Jeff Pinker (The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Fringe). The original movie centered upon a freshly-murdered man (Patrick Swayze) who uses a psychic (Whoopi Goldberg) to reconnect with his fiancee (Demi Moore and her terrible haircut) back on Earth. Seeing is this is a pretty self-contained story, that ends with Swayze finally leaving the Earthly world and traveling to Heaven (the spiritual plane? afterlife?) after fulfilling his duties and protecting his lady, it’s unclear what a weekly TV series would entail. In my dreams, it’s a buddy cop-esque show where Oda Mae and Ghost Swayze stand-in team up to solve mysteries together.



When the calendar page turns to October, we Rejects have only one thought: horror. To celebrate this grandest and darkest of months, we’ll cover one excellent horror film a day for the entirety of the month. That’s 31 Days of Horror and 31 Films perfect for viewing on a dark, chilly, October night. If you, like us, love horror and Halloween, give us a Hell Yeah and keep coming every day this month for a new dose of adrenaline. Synopsis: No matter where Josh and Renai run to, they can’t escape the terror pursuing their family. With the horror threatening their son’s life and their sanity, Josh looks into his past and goes to hell and back to search out what has taken residence in his boy.



If movies are to be believed, it’s easy for couples to meet in some cute way, fall in love, and tumble right into the sack without any trouble in the world. Yes, some films address the clumsiness of lovers’ first times together, but by the end of the scene they have figured out each other’s ticks, pleasures, and even kinks. No matter how long the on-screen couple has dated, their comfort with each other develops quickly, never leaving the audience time to question their accelerated level of intimacy. It’s as if they know each other perfectly or had a well-paid sex choreographer on retainer. But, truth be told, steamy intense intimacy doesn’t always need to involve gyrations.


There's Something About Mary

Although certain politicians and even scientists will suggest otherwise, most agree our basic human desire for sex remains pretty unchanged. Over the centuries we’ve acknowledged that ladies like it just as much as the men folk, both sexes can be completely uninterested, and there’s also the possibility that same sex lovers getting down and dirty isn’t, in fact, dirty. Every new generation accepts something as tame that the previous generation thinks taboo. My mother finds the practice of bondage troubling, but the idea is ordinary to me. Whereas I don’t quite understand her fascination with the word “slutpuppy” because that’s just ooky. I’m not saying one generation is better than the other, I’m more curious about how we got to the place we are. I am pretty in tune with the going-ons of Gwen, so I have no problem pinpointing a lot of my sexual identity development happening simultaneously with the films and TV that I watched in the 90s. Thinking back, the 90s stand out to me as a hodgepodge decade when it came to sex in film. We had the renewal of romantic melodramas as a reaction to the social commentary-filled erotic thrillers of the 80s, the depiction of realistic sex in comedies, and the rise in popularity of rape culture. Of course all these themes wouldn’t have been possible without the decades before them, but something happened in the 90s that made sex seem pleasurable through love, humor, and invasion.



There’s nothing scarier than being relatively alone and hearing mysterious noises in the middle of the night. It’s even worse if you’re possessed by a demon.



Patrick Swayze died yesterday after a battle with pancreatic cancer at the age of fifty seven. But we all know that actors live on in their work, frozen forever at different stages of their lives and their careers. Some of them, like Swayze, are imprinted on our minds in roles that make them larger than life.
