Where you can stream Terrifier 2

2022 has been a banner year for horror films. From franchise reboots like Scream and Hulu’s Hellraiser to legacy sequels like Halloween Ends to original movies like Smile and The Black Phone, horror has been one of the most popular genres for scare-starved audiences.

Among these successful slashers is Terrifier 2, and low-budget sequel that has been the surprise hit of October. After opening in over 700 theaters, the film has so far made almost $8 million on a minuscule $250,00 budget. It’s also received mainstream press attention for its extreme violence and gore, which has caused some people to vomit, faint, or leave the theater sick to their stomachs. Not bad for an indie horror movie about a deranged clown terrorizing an unsuspecting public.

Maybe I Do director Michael Jacobs on working with Diane Keaton and Richard Gere
Four adults stand in a kitchen in Maybe I Do.

Annie Hall. Pretty Woman. Bull Durham. These movies are now considered classics and staples in the recently resurgent romantic comedy genre. Now, some of the stars of those films -- Diane Keaton, Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon -- have teamed with Fargo actor William H. Macy for Maybe I Do, a rom-com that's not, in the words of its director, particularly romantic or comedic.

Digital Trends talked to the film's director, veteran writer and producer Michael Jacobs, about how he came up with the idea in the 1970s and how his famous actors collaborated with each other to depict honest portrayals of marriage.
