Mr. Bell returns with Mr. Clarke to court/spark the faithful, and to pimp Erasure's latest, The Violet Flame, at ACL Live. Read More | Comment »

So forget about AMC’s FearFest and Walking Dead marathons, this weekend starts our very own October scarefest. Get ready for chills, thrills, and killer QTs. Read More | Comment »
