Christmas has come and gone for another year. We hope you got lots of presents, stuffed yourself with delicious food, and managed to do as little as humanly possible. A new year is just around the corner, offering a fresh start and a whole new series of resolutions you'll keep for like three weeks then pretend you never made. Until then, here are the top 10 most read FANGRRLS posts from the past seven days.


 - The biggest thirst traps of 2018

You see, at SYFY FANGRRLS, our commitment to the thirst game is so powerful it practically makes a sucking sound. We don't mean that in a dirty way, at least we don't think. We're actually not sure how we mean it, but go with it.

 - Once Upon a Deadpool is a surprisingly delightful take on the original

My skeptical hackles raised, I braced myself for a watered-down version of one my favorite superheroes. I have to say, though, I was pleasantly surprised. The over-the-top violence, which I love but which is overwhelming for many viewers, was keyed back significantly, yet the story itself was still intact, with the delightful addition of a supercritical Fred Savage.

 - A queer kiss saves the world on Legends of Tomorrow

Queer love is our superpower. Queer love strengthens us. Queer love can save the world, even if just for a moment, even if we will have to save it again later. The impact of that love is revolutionary. Just ask Constantine.

 - The 10 best holiday horror movies

There's a wide and weird array of frightening and festive films from which to choose. SYFY FANGRRLS has searched through the creature features, seasonal slashers, and cult classics to single out the very best of holiday horror. Whether your wish list includes sinister Santas, slaughtering snowmen, dancings zombies, or family-friendly frights, we've got you covered.

 - Merry Witchmas: Paganism, witchcraft and the holidays

Every year, millions of people all across the world celebrate Christmas, and it is easily one of the most popular holidays. For many people, the history of Christmas is directly associated with the birth of Christ, and that’s as far back as it goes. Yet many of the traditions practiced during Christmas time have origins dating back much further than the beginnings of Christianity.

 - The 19 things we want most in 2019

Well, 2018 sure was a year, wasn't it? At least, we have been told it was a year. We're fairly certain it was actually an eternity we will never escape from and definitely a Jacob's Ladder scenario. Against all odds, 2019 is (allegedly) on its way. Despite its many horrors, 2018 actually gave us so much enjoyment. But 2019 has plenty of room to do better. With that in mind, we asked our fellow FANGRRLS what they most want to see in 2019.

 - We break down the radness that is Captain Marvel's second trailer

Oh, and -- our girl Carol ever so slightly punches an elderly lady. A lot of people were internet mad about that, but, honestly, let he among us who hasn’t punched an elderly lady in a tense moment be the first one to cast that stone. Besides, we’re dealing with Skrulls here, and Skrulls are infinitely punchable.

 - The 10 worst horror boyfriends

Whether it's offering up their girlfriends to be impregnated by Satanic evil, targeted by killers-for-hired in animal masks, or just straight-up murdering their moms, these are the guys you absolutely do not want to take home to meet the parents.

 - How Take Shelter helped me address my mental health

Depression isn't fair. It comes like a thief in the night, draining you of energy and the will to do anything before the day even begins. At least, that’s how I feel most times while dealing with my depression. I thought I had been doing a pretty good job of managing it on my own. Recently, I learned I wasn’t.

 - Our most anticipated video games of 2019

There are so many good video games coming out in 2019, and we're pretty sure it's going to take up all of our hard-earned cash. We've got a Star Wars game on the way, and finally, the next story in the Shenmue saga! We've picked out our most anticipated games of 2019 and put them all in the same place for you so you know how many extra hours to pick up at that side hustle of yours.
