“As soon as he enters the bathroom it was pop, pop, pop,” the man said. “Roughly an hour and a half went by and he shot again. So we were like, this man is looking to exterminate all of us.”

Charlie Minn, director of the 90-minute documentary called “49 Pulses,” said he was driven to make the film because so many of the

‘Get down! Get down!’ Witnesses recount gunfire, horror at school …

Brian Rodgers was putting out the “Espresso” banner in front of his small coffee shop when he heard the staccato of 10 shots from across the road in this small community.

Then he heard the screaming and shouts from Rancho Tehama Elementary School just down the road.

“You could hear the teachers tell the kids, ‘Get down! Get down!’ ”

It was just before 8 am. Students would have been on the playground as classes did not start until 8:15 am. Rodgers knows because until recently his own children went to school there.

A film geek’s guide to Canadian horror movies

What do you get when you cross exploding heads, teen wolves and vigilantism? The glory of Canadian horror movies. 

The following five flicks span the past 25 years of Canadian film and have made an immense impact on the genre. Since it’s the Halloween season, it seems natural to keep the spookiness alive. 

Scanners (1981) 

There’s no one quite like Canadian director David Cronenberg, not just when speaking of the horror film genre but also the film industry as a whole. His earliest works are the stuff of pure horror magic. 

One standout film, and his first big success, is 1981 sci-fi horror film Scanners. The film’s plot features a group of supernatural characters with powers of telepathy, telekinesis and mind-control — dubbed Scanners — recruited by an organization called ConSec to act as human weapons.

Scanners takes place in a world where corporations act without restraint in making the most powerful weapons possible. The film also has

‘American Horror Story’ Edited Mass Shooting Scene Airs … But the Gore’s Still Online

Producers for “American Horror Story” made good on their promise to edit a mass shooting scene for this week’s episode, but the carnage can still be seen online.

FX aired “Mid-Western Assassin” Tuesday, and you can see they significantly pared it down to avoid showing anyone actually getting shot. You mostly just hear the victims.

The decision to make major cuts to the shooting scene came on the heels of the Vegas mass shooting. However, viewers can still use FX’s video-on-demand feature to watch the unedited version of the scene … where at least 3 people are shot onscreen.

How American Horror Story: Cult Handled a Mass Shooting After the Las Vegas Attack

This story contains spoilers about Tuesday’s episode of American Horror Story: Cult.

American Horror Story frequently bases its creepy fiction on real-life events and people, from actual murders to performers in genuine freak shows. But in its seventh season, American Horror Story: Cult, the anthology series takes that approach to of-the-moment levels by setting its action around the 2016 presidential election and commenting directly on the national climate now that Donald Trump is in the Oval Office.

Both the risks and subtextual benefits of tapping so directly into the Zeitgeist are on full display in this week’s episode, “Mid-Western Assassin,” one that FX announced on Monday

American Horror Story: Will Meadow and Kai’s Mass-Shooting Plan Work?

This post contains spoilers for American Horror Story: Cult Episode 6, “Mid-Western Assassin.”

Poor Meadow. She was a cancer survivor, a Nicole Kidman stan, and above all, a hopeless romantic. Sure, she was also clueless—but we loved her. So it is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our beloved blonde, and pray that wherever she ends up, there’s a decent cable package.

As American Horror Story fans saw Tuesday night, Meadow never stood a chance. Once Kai decided to prey on her insecurities and loneliness, she quickly zoomed toward a horrific end. The cult leader convinced Meadow to elevate his political career to the national stage through a mass shooting and assassination attempt. In a clever twist, the episode used the massacre as a frame story—and in its opening sequence, which was edited to nix some of the on-screen violence in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting on
