For a while now there's been talk of Steven Spielberg and Stephen King joining forces to develop a TV series based on King's supernatural thriller Under the Dome for Showtime. However, the landscape has changed a bit.
It isn't often that we mention the Grammys here at Dread Central, but a few genre favorites have landed nominations for the 54th Annual Grammy Awards, which will be presented February 12, 2012, on CBS, and we just wanted to share the news.
I was a little too old for this sort of thing by the time “Skeleton Warriors” came along in 1993, but it is exactly the type of monstrous “Masters of the Universe” type of cartoon/toyline that I would have been all about as a kid. For the first time ever, all 13 episodes are headed to DVD - just in time for Christmas.
We've been a bit sporadic in our coverage of the TV series "Medium" after its first couple of years on its original home of NBC, but when word came down today that it's been canceled, we thought it worth mentioning, particularly in light of the lack of respect its current network, CBS, has demonstrated.
After giving his "Medium" leading lady a brain tumor in last season's finale (no worries; she survived, as did the show in an eleventh-hour renewal this past May), fans of the series have been wondering how executive producer Glenn Gordon Caron is going to open up its seventh season, which kicks off September 24th. How does a little Freaky Friday homage sound?
Are you one of the many who missed out on "Harper's Island" during its television run? If so you NEED to check it out when it drops on DVD on September 8th. To make sure that you do, we're even giving away copies! See? Now you have no excuse!
Now that the show has made the move from NBC to CBS, "Medium" producer Glenn Gordon Caron is ready to snaz it up a bit to encourage viewers of new lead-in "Ghost Whisperer" to stick around. To that end, he has acquired the rights to use footage from Night of the Living Dead in an upcoming episode.
It's a shame "Harper's Island" did so poorly on TV. Truth is it's a solid little show filled with about as much violence as some R-rated films. Pretty shocking. Word of mouth just spread a little too late, and as a result the show's fanbase got to the party too late to save it from the sentenced to Saturday night Death Curse.
When it first premiered, I was as big a fan of "Medium" as anyone. Its balanced portrayal of psychic/medium Allison DuBois' professional and personal lives was rich and rewarding. But it started losing me in later seasons, mostly due to the fact that it began to feel a little too familiar week after week.
It may not have won over a lot of Dread Central readers' hearts, but "Harper's Island" isn't doing so poorly that it's being canceled. However, CBS is moving the show to Saturday night ... not exactly a ringing endorsement.
The first interactive video from the "Harper's Island" social experiment called HarpersGlobe.com just went live, and it's pretty creepy!
It's been a few weeks, but yet another postcard from "Harper's Island" has mysteriously shown up in our e-mail. This time it appears they have a bit of a maintenance issue because someone made a hell of a mess on the stairs. Dig it!
I will admit, CBS's new show "Harper's Island" has my interest as I'm a sucker for a good murder mystery. To make things a bit more interactive, the network has just put HarpersGlobe.com live so that you can get a little more involved with the mayhem.
As April approaches we find ourselves getting closer and closer to the impending debut of CBS television's latest slasher series "Harper's Island". Up until now all we've seen about the show in terms of promotion have been a few ominous promo-postcards, but now apparently it's time for a bit more of the proverbial cat to creep out of the bag.
We just got another postcard from the makers of the upcoming serial killer show “Harper’s Island”. It’s a little bit darker (tonally, that is) than the last, indicating that maybe things on this quiet little island aren’t as nice as the tourism board wants you to believe.
