All the Five Nights at Freddy’s Easter Eggs you probably missed

Roll up, one and all, for the grand opening of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza! If you’ve played the games, you’ll know there are more Five Nights at Freddy’s Easter Eggs than a supermarket in April. And with developer Scott Cawthon co-writing the movie’s screenplay and acting as a producer, you can be sure your basket will be overflowing on this particular egg hunt.

But if you don’t know where to start, have no fear. As someone who has frankly spent an unhealthy amount of time consuming everything Five

Director Emma Tammi on “breathing life” into Five Nights at Freddy’s

It’s been a long road to the silver screen for the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie. Development on the film began in 2015 but it spent years languishing in development hell until Blumhouse got their claws into it and brought on director Emma Tammi to bring the evil animatronics to the big screen.

Now, anticipation for the Five Nights At Freddy’s movie is at an all-time high, and it’s easy to see why. Blumhouse is the studio responsible for some of the best horror movies of the last decade, includ

10 things you didn’t know about Five Nights at Freddy’s

If you haven’t heard of Five Nights at Freddy’s, where have you been? Probably outside touching grass, but that doesn’t matter because the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie is coming out soon. On the surface, Five Nights at Freddy’s just seems like your standard point-and-click horror game as you try to survive the night shift at the abandoned Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. But it’s the murderous animatronics like Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie the Bunny, Chica the Chicken, and Foxy the Fox that make it really wor

With Sex Education, we had our first ever sex-positive TV series

Do you remember Sex Education in school? If you were lucky, you got the standard condom-on-a-banana treatment. Or a singular health class in school that involved passing around laminated photos of genital warts and herpes. Most of the time, boys and girls would be separated, with the boys being taught about self-pleasure, while the girls were often lectured in no uncertain terms that they should not have sex, or they would get pregnant and die. The only thing I remember from my sex ed is a horri

Yes, Riverdale was completely deranged. But it’s all on purpose.

After seven seasons of mysteries, love triangles, cult initiations, murder, and a little bit of incest, one of the most iconic TV series of the past decade has finally ended. And no, we aren’t talking about Game of Thrones. We’re talking about Riverdale. For those uninitiated, Riverdale began in 2016 as a gritty teen drama series, putting a dark twist on the twee Archie comics that follow the clean-cut lives of teens Archie, Veronica, Betty, and Jughead.

Classic Disney princesses aren’t unfeminist — they’re misunderstood

“I’m not your Cinderella. I’m bad Cinderella.” The idea of a ‘not like other girls’ Disney princess who spray-paints Broadway posters for some reason was the basis of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Bad Cinderella musical, as was Amazon Prime’s 2022 Cinderella remake, which turned the titular character into an ambitious, career-hungry dressmaker. But turning all our Disney princesses into girlbosses isn’t the win for women’s rights that everyone seems to think it is.

When it comes to live action Disney r

Blue Beetle director says film is “just the beginning” for Jaime Reyes

“I think Jaime Reyes speaks to a lot of people,” Angel Manuel Soto, director of Blue Beetle explained to The Digital Fix. “Perhaps more people than we thought.” As the first Latinx superhero to get their own solo movie, Blue Beetle, the latest outing by DC, is poised to make history.

Arguably, the odds have been stacked against Blue Beetle from the start. It’s one of the last superhero movies in the now-defunct DCEU, was originally relegated to a streaming service-only release, and promotion fo

Strays director Josh Greenbaum on making Homeward Bound for grown-ups

At the height of the action in Strays, dozens of dogs are mobilized by Reggie (a mutt voiced by Will Ferrell) to defecate in unison to the rousing beat of Miley Cyrus’ 2013 hit ‘Wrecking Ball.’

Truth be told, it’s difficult to put the R-rated comedy movie, which was produced by Across the Spider-Verse’s Lord and Miller, into words. But in describing this climatic shitting sequence, which is Strays’ equivalent to a final face-off with a Marvel villain, you can at least get an idea of what you’re

Ken isn’t the Barbie movie’s villain — the patriarchy is

Throughout the Barbie movie’s elaborate press tour, everyone fell deeper and deeper in love with Ken. Of course, the fact that Ryan Gosling plays Ken helps with this enormously, but as trailers and preview clips play up Ken’s ‘himbo’ mentality, it’s clear that we as a collective have ‘babygirlified’ the Barbie character.

For those of you not chronically online, what I mean by this is that every month, the internet collectively decides to swoon over a high-profile white man to near-pathological

The Bear’s Lionel Boyce on weekly cook-offs and Will Poulter ‘synergy’

While Carmy, Richie, and Syndey regularly tore strips off of each other at The Original Beef of Chicagoland, Marcus remained a consistent, calming presence. Throughout season 1 of The Bear, we watched the character unlock his passion for desserts and blossom from a shy and uncertain line cook to a talented and self-assured dessert savant.

Now, after a season on the sidelines, Marcus takes center stage in season 2 of the drama series. In our The Bear season 2 review, we note how Lionel Boyce’s p

XO Kitty’s bisexuality storyline is groundbreaking, here’s why

At exactly 0:01am on July 1, you’ll feel the seismic rumble of every corporation taking the rainbow off their profile pictures. “That’s enough guys,” they’ll tell us, “You had a whole month to be visibly queer, now get back into the freezer until next June.”

LGBTQ+ representation, especially on-screen, has improved a lot in recent years, but as another Pride Month ends, I can’t help but reflect on how much further we have to go with new movies and series.

Some things are more important than the MCU

In the past few months, some deeply concerning allegations have come to light. Jonathan Majors was arrested on assault charges in relation to a 30-year-old woman, with further women later coming to the District Attorney with further allegations, according to Variety. Tenoch Huerta was accused of sexual assault by an ex-partner on social media. Both actors have vehemently denied these respective allegations. But the one thing more terrifying than the nature of what they’re being accused of is how

The Idol just set back the feminist movement by at least a decade

From the very beginning, everything I’d heard about The Idol had been against my will. The snippets of information about the plot, characterizations, and behind-the-scenes changes alone went beyond red flags and delved straight into blaring scarlet alarm territory.

I’m no prude when it comes to TV — I consider Skins and Euphoria to be some of the best TV series of all time — so when I sat down to watch the first episode of The Idol, I did so with an open mind. Well, as open-minded as one can be

A live-action Little Mermaid remake was “uncharted waters”

“How do you do it? How do you create an underwater musical?” These were the questions Rob Marshall asked himself when he was approached to direct The Little Mermaid. The filmmaker is no stranger to movie musicals — his directorial debut was the Academy Award-winning Chicago — but in an interview with The Digital Fix, he explained how the feat had “never been done before.”

“I thought to myself, ‘I need the greatest team around me because we’re all going to have to jump into some ‘Wild Uncharted

In Guardians of the Galaxy 3, Nebula finally breaks the cycle of abuse

When she was introduced as a Marvel villain in Guardians of the Galaxy, I didn’t think much of Nebula. The trope of the ‘evil sister’ filled to the brim with resentment had been done countless times before, and even when she had a little redemption arc in the end, I rolled my eyes. For me, it felt all too predictable and shallow.

Even if you put the inherent misogyny of the ‘ugly sister’ trope and pitting two female characters against each other to one side, it just felt like a gender-swapped,

The Barbie movie’s body diversity couldn’t have come at a better time

We’ve all seen the memes at this point. For a while, it really felt like fatphobia and diet culture would remain a relic of 2000s movies and ‘90s TV shows. But something has changed in the past year or so, with pop culture again pedalling the idea that existing as a fat person is somehow ‘bad’ or ‘wrong’.

We’re less than halfway into 2023, and it’s become clear that, more than anything, people are utterly terrified of being seen as fat. This anxiety has become so widespread that influencers are

From Matilda to Wednesday, autistic girls are finally being seen

A lot has changed since Autism Acceptance Month rolled around last April. Usually, despite the acute focus on autistic people as a whole, autistic women and girls are often left feeling like an afterthought. With nearly 80% of autistic females being misdiagnosed in the first place, all the buzz around ‘raising awareness’ of autism and the importance of representing the experience on-screen seems to skew heavily towards boys and men.

Of course, autistic males deserve to have their voices heard,

The Moana live-action remake sends a sad message about animation

When Dwayne Johnson announced that Moana was getting a Disney live-action remake, many jokes were made about how ‘the hierarchy of Disney movies were about to change.’

Sure, this may have been a riff on his now-infamous PR campaign for DC movie Black Adam, but it gets one thing wrong. The hierarchy of Disney movies will, arguably, never change because if one exists, then animated movies are definitely not at the top. Instead, they’re arguably seen as inferior or second-rate to live-action movie

Why are we all so obsessed with The Hunger Games again?

Every evening, I log into TikTok for an eclectic night of entertainment — by which, I mean watching the same three South Park clips and a robot voice reading out Reddit Am I The Asshole posts alongside a split screen of someone playing Subway Surfers.

But in recent weeks, I’ve found my feed dominated by The Hunger Games content. No matter how hard I scroll, I’m faced with edits of Peeta cosplaying as a rock; breakdowns on how the reaping was rigged against Katniss all along; and my personal fav

Saul Goodman memes explained, by those who know best

It’s been a decade since Breaking Bad, widely considered one of the best TV series of all time, came to an end. The drug, violence, and crime-fuelled thriller series was quickly followed by Better Call Saul, a spin-off based on the misadventures of side character Saul Goodman. Bob Odenkirk’s sleazy lawyer was always a fan favourite, and the Netflix series was a triumph: lauded by critics and audiences alike before ending on a high in 2022.

But the legacy of Saul Goodman has been uniquely immort

Ahmed Best’s Star Wars return isn’t a ‘redemption’ – here’s why

In The Mandalorian season 3 episode 4, Disney combined our two favourite things: Baby Yoda and nostalgia. Entitled ‘The Foundling,’ the latest episode of the Star Wars series gave us some much-overdue insight into how our favourite little critter managed to escape Order 66. As well as getting glimpses of Stormtroopers and the city of Naboo, we also got to see some Jedi fight sequences up close. But there was one Jedi in particular that caught viewers’ eye.

We watched in wonder as Kelleran Beq s

You’s Penn Badgley – “I think Joe just needs to dissolve”

The most ironic thing about interviewing Joe Goldberg is that I was worried about looking like a stalker. I was always a fan of You cast member Penn Badgley, right back to when he was ‘Lonely Boy’ Dan Humphrey in TV series Gossip Girl. The similarities between Dan Humphrey and Joe Goldberg have been pointed out before, but now that Joe is terrorising the rich and elite in You season 4, the characters have more in common than ever.

But don’t worry — Penn made it clear to me that he still can’t s

In defence of going to the movies alone

For a long time, I was petrified of going to the movies alone. I grew up in a big family, with three brothers and a Marvel movie-loving dad, so a trip to the cinema wasn’t something done with spontaneity. In fact, it felt like a whole military operation, with myself and my siblings being rounded up and piled into a minivan like we were undercover soldiers in a spy movie.

Living in a small(ish) seaside town with not a lot else to do, the cinema was soon established as the go-to social activity.

Cocaine Bear screenwriter on why movie was “too perfect not to pursue”

Cocaine Bear is one of those movies that does exactly what it says on the tin. It’s about a bear going on a cocaine-fuelled rampage after a drug smuggling operation went wrong, but despite its ruthless gore and violence, this monster movie is no Blood and Honey.

With 21 Jump Street’s Phillip Lord and Chris Miller on board as producers, this movie based on a true story has become a comedic caper that takes its stranger-than-fiction premise to a whole new level.

But if it weren’t for Jimmy Warde
