How Netflix's The Sandman brought the scariest issue of Neil Gaiman's comic to screen

Warning: This article contains spoilers for the fifth episode of Netflix's The Sandman, "24/7." The Sandman is not primarily a horror series. Over the course of 75 issues, writer Neil Gaiman used his protagonist — Morpheus, the king of dreams — to explore all manner of stories, from fairytales to historical fiction.

By tube, he means his film's set: a series of distinct train cars for his cast of trained killers to play in. As a former stuntman for the likes of Brad Pitt (in Fight Club) and Keanu Reeves (in The Matrix), and now the filmmaker behind such action game-changers as John Wick and Atomic Blonde, Leitch was up for the challenge.

Bodies Bodies Bodies review: The kids are not alright

Horror movies can and do kill whoever they want to, but their primary food group has always been youth. (And their key audience, too; by the time you've lived a few decades, there seems to be less urgency to seek this stuff out — maybe because the threat of ordinary mortality has already become more than enough off-screen.)
