15 Things You Never Knew About David Fincher’s ‘Zodiac’

Underappreciated when it came out a decade ago, “Zodiac” is now widely considered David Fincher‘s best film.

The 2007 drama, which chronicles the notorious San Francisco slayings of the late 1960s, is more than just another serial killer thriller from the director of “Seven” — it’s a meditation on the pursuit of truth, a quest that sometimes goes frustratingly unfulfilled. “Zodiac” also marked a career highlight for its trio of sleuths, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, Robert Downey Jr., and Mark Ruffalo, a cast that would be difficult to assemble today without a truckload of cash and some superhero costumes.

Even for longtime Fincher fans who’ve seen “Zodiac” multiple times, the film itself offers some still-ambiguous mysteries. Perhaps we can put some of them to rest in the items below.
1. Screenwriter James Vanderbilt had been fascinated with the Zodiac case

She handed her baby to a stranger — and never saw them again

It’s a child snatch horror story that will send chills through every parent.

The tragedy unfolded 35 years ago when a mom gave her tiny girl to a strange woman who begged to hold her at a bus stop – then vanished with her infant daughter.

Eleanor Williams, 52, said the woman approached her at a bus station in 1983, asking to hug the tot.

The young mom, then just 18, naively let her take 3-month-old April Williams in her arms after she pleaded: “please, just for a minute?” in a “sweet voice”.

Shortly after the stranger, who called herself Latoya, insisted she take baby to the bathroom to change her, telling Eleanor: “you look exhausted”.

But the woman never came back – and the pair have been missing ever since.

The incident took place on December 2 in downtown Washington, DC.

Heartbroken Eleanor says she will never forgive herself for the decision that day.

Otsego teen vanished in 1972, never forgotten on Christmas birthday


OTSEGO, Mich. — Despite its festive qualities, the holidays can also be a somber time for those remembering lost loved ones. That includes the family of Kathy Wilcox. The Otsego teen disappeared 45 years ago. Christmas is her birthday.

“I called her our family clown. She was outgoing. She was courageous. She was just brave. Everybody loved her,” Karen Wilcox described her sister.

Karen said, to her knowledge, Kathy didn’t have any enemies. So what exactly happened to the 15-year-old in June of 1972? Otsego police closed her case that summer and classified her as a runaway. Wilcox said it wasn’t until 2014 that police opened a missing person’s investigation.

“Spiritually, I’ve been sort of stuck in this place of limbo because of the not knowing. What would it have been like to have

A Young Woman Was Last Seen by Police, Then Never Again – VICE

Almost five years ago, 26-year-old Emma Fillipoff vanished, virtually without a trace, off the streets of downtown Victoria.

Emma, a young, free-spirited woman had travelled to Victoria, British Columbia, like many young people do, to bask in the beauty of the West Coast. But some now suggest Emma may have been running from something in her life, or perhaps, someone. Days before Emma disappeared, those who knew Emma claim she was acting strange—that it looked like she was struggling with some sort of mental health crisis. On the night she went missing, Emma was left standing on the street, alone, barefoot, when she disappeared into the night. Since then, no one has ever publicly heard from Emma, or knows what exactly happened to her.

On the evening of November 28, 2012, a light rain periodically fell on the streets of downtown Victoria. The temperature was mild for late November, hovering

Missing Syracuse teen promised to be back by Thanksgiving, but never showed up

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — A Syracuse teenager missing for the past week had promised her mom that she would be back in time for Thanksgiving.

But Tatiana Martinez, a 17-year-old Fowler High School student, hasn’t been heard from since Nov. 20, said her mother, Belinda Bidwell.

Martinez left a relative’s home sometime between 3 and 6 a.m. Nov. 20, Bidwell said.

“Everything was fine,” Bidwell said.

Martinez sent her mom text messages later that day, telling her that she wasn’t in Syracuse but that she’d be back home by Thanksgiving, Bidwell said.

“I am concerned something is not right,” Bidwell said Sunday night.

Syracuse police have Martinez listed as a missing person, “but there does not appear to be anything suspicious or criminal about her disappearance,” city police Sgt. Richard Helterline said.

“She has been reported as a missing person several times prior to this incident,” Helterline said. “We will continue to list her as a missing person

7 Doctor Who spin-offs that never made it to TV, from Daleks in America to Rose Tyler: Earth Defence

Doctor Who has been blessed with a number of successful and not-so-successful spin-off series over the years. From 1981’s K9 and Company to 2016’s Class, the Who-niverse has been expanding its characters and worlds, as everyone from Captain Jack Harkness to Sarah Jane Smith get their own adventures.

The Best Movie You Never Saw: The Cable Guy

Welcome to The Best Movie You NEVER Saw, a column dedicated to examining films that have flown under the radar or gained traction throughout the years, earning them a place as a cult classic or underrated gem that was either before it’s time and/or has aged like a fine wine.

This week we’ll be looking at THE CABLE GUY!

THE STORY: A newly single man (Matthew Broderick) is stalked by a crazed cable man (Jim Carrey) bent on becoming his best friend.

THE PLAYERS: Starring: Jim Carrey, Matthew Broderick, Leslie Mann, George Segal, Jack Black, Owen Wilson. Directed by Ben Stiller.

THE HISTORY: In the mid-nineties, nobody was bigger than Jim Carrey. ACE VENTURA: PET DETECTIVE (and its lame sequel, WHEN NATURE CALLS), THE MASK, DUMB AND DUMBER, and BATMAN FOREVER made him a household name, and every studio in town

Never Before Seen Photos of CANNIBAL CORPSE On Set on Ace Ventura: Pet Detective Surface

One of the biggest moments in Cannibal Corpse’s illustrious career was when they showed up in Jim Carrey’s breakthrough hit, Ace Ventura. It was a big moment and the band claim that not a day goes by where a fan tells them they discovered the death metal greats through the wacky comedy. Despite previous reports to the contrary, Jim Carrey was a big fan of the band’s and personally requested that they perform “Hammer Smashed Face” during their big scene in the movie.care

If you’ve never seen the movie, here’s the scene:
