Doom Patrol returns for the back half of its fourth and final season this October. Season 4B’s premiere episode is directed by Bosede Williams. It picks up after January’s mid-season finale, in which the members of Doom Patrol were sent to the pocket dimension known as Orqwith.

“The show creator [Jeremy Carver] really wanted to present Orqwith to the fans, because they’ve been talking about it since season 1 … We knew that it should be dark and completely disorienting, because the characters have never seen anything like it. It should be gloomy, just to really take them out of their elements,” said Williams.

“We worked very closely with the production designer to put it together and figure out: What was the lighting going to be? How big were the bones? What were the flowers going to look like? There were so many details,” the director continued. “It was really fun putting together that world.”

Williams further explained that in the Orqwith, Immortus is capable of stripping away the Doom Patrol’s shared longevity, which “deeply [affects]” the team. “It’s a real turning point for every single character. It’s a massive thing that they’re going to be struggling with, and some of them are conflicted. Some of them are okay with that and want to move on, but then others are not so sure.”

That said, there are still “beacons of light” in the form of Casey Brinke (Madeline Zima) and Dorothy (Abi Monterey). “Doom Patrol is dark, it is about trauma and dysfunction,” Williams said. “But Casey evokes a simpler time. They bring the brightness, and it’s really nice to see them come running in when they do.”

The Exorcist 4K UHD: The Power of 4K Compels You

Just in time for Halloween, the upcoming sequel, the 50th anniversary of the film and the 100th anniversary of Warner Brothers, The Exorcist comes to 4K UHD. This edition captures the impact of this seminal horror film.

The 4K UHD preserves the film grain of the 1973 film. Georgetown looks beautiful in the daylight, when they’re filming Chris MacNeil’s movie. It’s lush and green, with autumn leaves visible as she walks through the neighborhood.

A visit to the dark attic shows how deep the shadows can go, illuminated by a burst of flame. Regan’s green vomit looks thick and dark but no brighter than it used to be.

Regan’s room is scary enough in broad daylight, but when the exorcists arrive it gets darker and darker.

For contrast, the opening shots of the archeological dig in Iraq look as golden and gritty as Indiana Jones. Especially closeups of dirty hands that have been digging all day. It provides a nice contrast to the rest of the movie.

The Exorcist got a surround mix over the years, so you hear digging in the background during that opening. Music in a bar, cocktail chatter at Chris’s party, rumbles of Pazuzu moving furniture around. The ringing phone provides a good jump scare.

Archival commentaries by the late William Friedkin and William Peter Beatty are also included, though you might want to keep your Blu-rays for all the other bonus features.
