From Dread Central:
One of the most underrated horror movies of 2020 is also one of the best genre anthologies of the 21st Century. I’m talking about The Mortuary Collection! If you missed it, RLJE Films will release The Mortuary Collection on VOD, Digital HD, DVD, and Blu-ray on April 20th, 2021.
Set in the phantasmagorical town of Raven’s End, nothing is as it seems…. In The Mortuary Collection, a misguided young girl takes refuge in a decrepit old mortuary. There she meets Montgomery Dark, an eccentric undertaker with more than a few skeletons in his closet. Montgomery chronicles the strange history of the town through a series of twisted tales, each more terrifying than the last, but the young girl’s world is unhinged when she discovers that the final story…is her own.
Written and directed by Ryan Spindell (50 States of Fright, The Babysitter Murders), The Mortuary Collection stars Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption, Thor: Ragnarok), Caitlin Custer (Teen Wolf, Swingtown), Christine Kilmer (Hollywood, Shameless), and Jacob Elordi (The Kissing Booth franchise, Euphoria). RLJE Films will release The Mortuary Collection on DVD for an SRP of $27.97 and Blu-ray for an SRP of $28.96.

In 2020, the superstar K-pop band BTS broke seven Guinness World Records with their song “Dynamite”: it became the most viewed YouTube video in 24 hours, got 7,778,950 streams within a day (and subsequently nabbed the title for the biggest Spotify release of 2020), and spent the most weeks at no. 1 for Billboard’s Social 50 chart. We at W were inspired by the impact BTS—and its fandom, known as the Army—made, not just in the realm of music, but for the culture at large, and chose their song “Dynamite” for our annual round of Lyrical Improv. Watch Jacob Elordi, George Clooney, Tom Holland, Jared Leto, Andra Day, and more of our 2021 Best Performances stars give their renditions of the chart-busting track here.
In Euphoria, Australian actor Jacob Elordi’s character, Nate, is a case study in American teenage toxic masculinity, a complete 180 from the more conventionally romantic role in his breakthrough film, The Kissing Booth. Off-screen, however, the 23-year-old embodies something of a new type of masculinity unbothered by convention. Perhaps it’s because he spent parts of his childhood dressed in a curly wig and wearing red lipstick. For W’s annual Best Performances issue, Elordi, who is set to appear in the upcoming Deep Water, discusses his first kiss, audiences’ reactions to his role as Nate, and his early crush on Orlando Bloom in The Lord of the Rings.
Have you wanted to be an actor your whole life, or was that a sudden desire?
I think subconsciously, my whole life I wanted to be an actor, because I demanded all the attention from my parents and friends and people around me. Probably from when I was 12, I started doing musical theater. I did Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Seussical. From there I took drama classes. And then from about 15, there was not much else for me to do.
Were you a dramatic child?
Yeah, still am. I still am a dramatic child, for sure.
You’d start singing in the middle of public places?
No, I don’t think I would call myself a theater kid necessarily, who just starts whooping out ballads and songs. I’m more dramatic like in a drama movie. I’ll make everything 10 times more intense, serious, or heartbreaking than it needs to be.
You’re the baby of a large family. Did your sisters dress you up like a doll?
I think it was all of us dressing up. My mom has videos of me with this great ginger curly wig, with red lipstick on, and my sister’s purse. I don’t remember ever resenting it or putting up much of a fight.
