Sex, Murder, and an Organ Auction in Three Trailers We've Had Our Eye On This Week

It’s the spookiest day of the spookiest month of the year. Let us celebrate with a First Look at season two of AMC’s Interview with the Vampire. Jacob Anderson is casually oozing sex appeal out of all of his pores in this clip as Louis de Pointe du Lac against Assad Zaman’s Armand. I’m very much looking forward to an entire season of Ben Daniels playing Santiago for campy cattiness. As much as the 1994 film holds a place in my heart, this show captures the mood and the vibe of the books so much better. And also the sex. There’s so much more sex. Thank the Old Gods.

Interview with the Vampire returns to AMC and AMC+ in 2024. Let’s go!

The trailer for FX’s A Murder at the End of the World seems like it’s going to be a moody, sexy version of Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians by way of the Scandinavian noir genre that has been popular in the last few years. It was created by Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij who collaborated on 2016’s short-lived The OA and The East and are also splitting director duties here.

The seven-episode series stars Emma Corrin (The Crown, My Policeman), Alice Braga (Queen Of The South, Predators), Brit Marling, Harris Dickinson (Triangle of Sadness), Raúl Esparza (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), Joan Chen (Twin Peaks), and features Clive Owen throwing super sinister vibes. It begins streaming on Hulu on November 14th.

When you’re having a bad day in a South Korean movie, you REALLY have A Bad Day. Woo-Sung Jeon and Byeongyun Choi’s series, Bargain, about a black-market organ auction gone horribly wrong (and really, when do those go right?) is already streaming on Paramount+, but we wouldn’t want you to miss what looks like one hell of a ride.

I’m not a fan of Please Don’t Destroy. I don’t think these guys are funny. But, for this week’s Lagniappe, I’m featuring their Peacock film debut Please Don’t Destroy: The Treasure of Foggy Mountain because they are inexplicably popular with many people. I see it as a further testament to Lorne Michael’s brainwashing skills and the powers of nepotism.

OK, fine, the CGI hawk strutting around is pretty funny. Please Don’t Destroy: The Treasure of Foggy Mountain will begin streaming on Peacock November 17th.
