Video: AI researchers make SCARY Halloween-themed ‘deepfakes’ video of Donald Trump as Winnifred Anderson

By using 3,000 photos of Donald Trump and working in collaboration with deepfakes expert DeepHomage, they were able to insert the American President into a number of scenes from Young Frankenstein and Hocus Pocus.

This clip shows Trump replacing Bette Midler in 1993’s Hocus Pocus.

“Deepfakes technology is getting better and better at faking the content, but researchers are also coming up with new ways to ‘detect’ fakes. So I don’t think there will ever be a time (at least in [the] near future) where somebody will create a deepfakes video where nobody detects that it is [a] forgery.” Read More

Mister  D: I don’t know what is wrong with me but for a decade I just lost my voice, stopped being irreverant, and just seemed to go through the motions on everything. I’ll try to hold back on here.

This special was so cheesy, only a mouse could have loved it, Or maybe it was just geared to a younger audience which seems more likely. And no, the performance by those 3 girls was not “Iconic” Cute, yes, but Iconic is reserved and will remain the version by Bette Midler. I wish these hacky writers would leave certain words alone that used to mean something special. No, not every female singer and movie star is a diva, If you’re popular on Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook, you’re not a diva. So quit watering down the words.

Disney’s ‘Hocus Pocus’ Gets Giant Sanderson Sisters Plushies For Halloween
By SEAN FALLON – September 21, 2018

Winifred Sanderson from Disney‘s cult classic film Hocus Pocus isn’t often described as “cuddly”, but this 18-inch plush doll version of her certainly is. The Winifred plush is a Spirit Halloween exclusive that you can order right here along with her sisters Sarah and Mary for $24.99 each.

Winifred wouldn’t admit it, but these plush shouldn’t be purchased individually. The Sanderson Sisters need to stick together. The same is true for Spirit Halloween’s exclusive Hocus Pocus Funko Pop collection… Read More

25 Things We Learned from the ‘Hocus Pocus’ 25th Anniversary Blu-ray

25 Things We Learned from the ‘Hocus Pocus’ 25th Anniversary Blu-ray

Hocus Pocus, one of the campiest cult classics ever to be cooked up in a cinematic cauldron, delighted audiences 25 years ago. And as the new anniversary Blu-ray proves, the movie has never lost its magical touch. The story centers on the witchy Sanderson Sisters played uniquely and expertly well by Bette MidlerSarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy, who haunt Salem, Massachusetts upon awakening from their 300-year slumber. The only ones who can stop them are, ironically, the ones who woke them up in the first place: teenagers Max (Omri Katz) and Allison (Vinessa Shaw) and Max’s younger sister, Dani (Thora Birch), assisted by a cursed, immortal, talking cat, and a resurrected zombie (Doug Jones). There’s a reason that Freeform plays this flick a bunch of times during their annual 31 Nights of Halloween fest, but now you can pick up a tricked-out copy of your own. Read More
