If you missed Season One of the incredible BBC America series "Being Human", then you missed out on some truly quality television. Not to worry though ... director Greg Pritikin has something on the horizon for us that sounds, well, strikingly similar.
Want to talk about an unlikely trio to get together to make a film? Try this one on for size ... a writer who's penned an episode of a medical TV comedy, a director who's straight out of The Asylum, and a prolific genre director now serving as producer on a film with a title so wacky you can't help but want to see it. Interested yet? We are.
Kidnappings can be a harrowing experience. Just think of how helpless you would feel if some crazy or group of crazies decided that there would be nothing finer than capturing you and your significant others, killing them before your eyes, and making you wait those long seconds before you're offed yourself. True, that is the worst case scenario, but it's frighteningly possible.
I'm one of the many out there who were surprised by Deon Taylor's horror anthology Nite Tales (review here). Despite a few technical hiccups and a truly wretched performance from Flava Flav, the flick more than did its thing as far as being a competent little spooker. We just got word that Taylor's ready to start in on his latest flick -- Dark Christmas.
Viral marketing done right can feel like an extra added layer of goodness on top of a project we're all excited about. When done poorly, however, it feels like shills shoving crap down your throat that you have no interest in whatsoever. With the release of The Crazies remake rapidly approaching, two new viral sites have been set up to lure the fans in.
A new month; a new batch of DVDs and Blu-rays to consider. We've used the phrase "mixed bag" a few times before this year, but never has it been more apropos than with regard to those discs that are being released on December 1st, 2009!
More often than not, I really wish I'd been born earlier and had the opportunity to see horror classics like Evil Dead on the big screen. Sure, Blu-ray is great and 1080p projectors excel at replicating the theatrical experience, but they miss the mark. It's just that nothing really compares to seeing this stuff on the big screen with a packed audience of like-minded horror fans. But thanks to Grindhouse Releasing, I'll soon be able to cross another one off my wish list.
2006's Deaden (review here) was a bloody, nasty throwback to the 70s and 80s vigilante flicks, and those of us that dug it can look forward to an expansion of the story ... in printed form.
Arriving on DVD January 19th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment is Joel Schumacher's long-delayed Nazi fueled horror opus, Blood Creek (review here), and we've got a trailer for your perusal. Goose-step your way into this story to check it out!
Rumblings of some really good news have begun which may end in the goodness that will be seeing the original Rod Serling driven television hit "The Twilight Zone" hitting high definition!
Twilight. The Lord of the Rings. Harry Potter. "True Blood". "The Vampire Diaries." There are so many book series out there looking to attain the level of success that those titles have had transitioning to both the big and the small screens. Warner Brothers is about to start banking on another one -- Beautiful Creatures.
Some pretty cool casting news coming out of HBO's "True Blood" camp tonight! It seems that Sam Merlotte wasn't the only member of his ... ummm ... litter! Lay down some newspaper, kids! A young pup is on the way!
Every time we get to do another story on Nimrod Antal's semi-reboot of the Predator franchise, Predators, which is being produced by Robert Rodriguez, we get a little more excited. If only because neither Paul Anderson nor the dark duo of the Brothers Strause have anything to do with it. Ready for a quick look at where our favorite hunters call home?
Stephen King’s foray into hard-boiled noir, The Colorado Kid, wasn’t exactly among his most acclaimed efforts. That’s not stopping the powers that be from putting the story on film, however, as it’s set to become a thirteen-episode miniseries on the Sci-Fi Channel (sorry, I can’t bring myself to adhere to the ‘proper’ spelling).
Nothing quite says Christmas like a robot apocalypse that has pushed the human race to the brink of extinction! Am I right? Just in time for the holidays we're giving away a couple of copies of Terminator: Salvation on DVD!
