Now don’t panic, Halloween fans. Jamie Lee Curtis’ return to Haddonfield hasn’t been cancelled, just slightly delayed. The new Halloween film was supposed to begin filming in December, but for reasons unexplained the David Gordon Green helmed film won’t starting rolling until January. Films get delayed all the time and extras are still being sourced in South Carolina where the movie is supposed to be filming. A little delay never hurt anyone, has it?

Candyman comes to Riverdale

Who else is watching Riverdale? Do you love it like I do? Well you might like it even more after this week’s episode, which finds the one and only Tony Todd of Candyman fame visiting the series, as we delve deeper into solving the murder of who the Black Hood is (Alice Cooper is a theory, as is Jughead’s notorious Serpents lawyer). Here’s the rundown for the episode:

The town remains on edge after a chilling letter from the Black Hood challenges the town’s residents to remain sinless for 48 hours, or he’ll strike again.

Meanwhile, Jughead and Archie’s friendship gets tested after Penny Peabody unexpectedly calls in a favor that Jughead owes her. Elsewhere, Betty and Veronica team up to investigate someone who Betty thinks could be the Black Hood killer. Finally, things take an unexpected turn for Josie when a secret admirer takes things one step too far.
