We're entering final countdown stage as we head toward Halloween 2016, and for me that means that prime time to start watching the scarier stuff has arrived. For those who may be unaware, I have something of a "horror movie" past. You'd have to do some digging to find it, but I played a supporting role in one that was released in 2009... I used to do some work for a horror mag... and actually penned a few screenplays that were once set to become movies, but ended up spawning comics instead. Having kids changed my focus quite a bit, and with the exception of a few music videos that I've directed in recent years, for the most part I've moved the frights into the "seasonal" category, choosing to enjoy them as part of my annual Halloween rituals. As a writer for the Netflix #StreamTeam, I feel it's my civic duty to share some frightful finds for you to stream & scream in the last week prior to Halloween... but some aren't too scary, as I've got suggestions for the whole family.

This Sunday, October 23, 2016, it's time for a "Pumpkin Party" with PEPPA PIG! A new Halloween episode of the kid-favorite show, coming to Nick Jr. at 7pm ET.  In this very special extended story, guests will be coming dressed in scary costumes – Peppa is a witch, George is a dinosaur and Rebecca Rabbit is a carrot...gone bad! Viewers will also join Peppa on exciting new adventures that include participating in a pumpkin competition, taking a trip to a castle and more! Plus, Peppa will meet a new friend at playgroup, Gerald Giraffe! Check out a preview below, and be sure to visit the grownups section of the Peppa Pig website for some Halloween FREE PRINTABLES!

One of the worst-kept secrets in Hollywood just became official: Donald Glover has been cast as young Lando Calrissian in the upcoming standalone Han Solo "Star Wars Story." Lucasfilm announced today that the acclaimed actor, award-winning writer, and Grammy-nominated artist (aka Childish Gambino), will be stepping into the role originally played by Billy Dee Williams in the new film helmed by directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. 

We're getting extremely close to the theatrical debut of ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS Story, the very first of the standalone STAR WARS films, blasting into theaters on December 16. From director Gareth Edwards, this new tale tells the story of a group of unlikely heroes that band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves. As it's been for the past four decades, a key component to bringing that cinematic fun to life at home has been with STAR WARS action figures, vehicles and playsets - something I enjoyed back in the Kenner era, and something that our daughters enjoy with a wide array of toys from Hasbro. With that in mind, Disney/Lucasfilm, along with many of their product partners have been inviting fans to #GoRogue, telling their own stories. To celebrate, Disney Consumer Products and THE ROCK FATHER Magazine are offering readers a chance to #GoRogue and win a box of STAR WARS toys from Hasbro! Get details and enter below...
