#SDCC16: SNL’s Cecily Strong Joins Scream Queens as it Jumps Ahead 3 Years

Published

on

Some big news came out of the San Diego Comic-Con on Day 2 during the “Scream Queens” panel: Cecily Strong (“Saturday Night Live,” Ghostbusters) is guest starring as a patient in the hospital (which used to be an asylum) where Season 2 is set.  In addition, there will be a three-year time jump when the show returns on September 20th.

Some other highlights of the panel per THR include:

  • Keke Palmer’s character, Zayday, is now a med student at the hospital. In addition to being a doctor there, John Stamos’ new character is also “the recipient of the world’s first complete hand transplant.” It could be the hand of “a brilliant surgeon” or maybe from “a squash player who killed his opponents.”
  • The Chanels are in a “low-status position” in the new season according to exec producer Ian Brennan. “They have fallen from glamour,” star Emma Roberts said. “It’s really funny seeing them trying to hold on to their style when they have no money. They have to work, which is something really foreign to them.”
  • When asked if we might see the Red Devil this season, Brennan said, “It’s a different killer this year, the look is different, the color is different… [Season 2] will be “bloodier and funnier… I think we’re leaning into the creepiness a little more and a little bit more into the comedy as well.”
  • Palmer added, “The mystery aspect with the killer is much higher this season. In this one it’s like. ‘What’s going on? Where is this happening, and why is this happening?'”

Body-Horror Frankenstein AKA Larry Fessenden’s New Flick Depraved

Published

on

I’m not sure if you guys are aware or not, but legendary horror producer Larry Fessenden is all set to return to the director’s chair with his Frankenstein flick Depraved.

You can check out the film’s poster to the right and a rundown on its cast, crew, and synopsis below.

But today we have a new update on the film as Fessenden recently sat down with Daily Dead and discussed the film a bit more in-depth.

“In a funny way, I want to make all the classics again,” Fessenden told the site. “I’ve made a vampire movie. I want to make a werewolf movie, but Frankenstein is one of the greatest creations of pop culture. The original version is a masterpiece, and oddly enough, it’s a story that hasn’t been done that well since. And it’s often attempted. I feel there’s a core theme in that story that I would like to explore and bring it very much back to this idea of loneliness.”

He continues: “It’s about waking up, and you’re someone, and you don’t know who you are or why you are. And then there’s the question of what brought you into this world. In my story, there will be conflict of the parental figures as the scientist who made him and the other people around him. I’m very interested in the subjective lonely experience of being alive in this world and in this culture, and Frankenstein is such a fantastic, iconic way to look at it. And also, there is the physical body horror aspect to this story, of someone being sewn together, and there’s identity horror, too. There’s so much possibility in it that I’m just overflowing with excitement.”

Are you excited about Larry Fessenden’s return to directing? Let us know below!

Depraved is written and directed by Larry Fessenden and set to star David Call, Joshua Leonard and Alex Breaux as the monster. The movie will be produced by Fessenden, Jenn Wexler, and Chadd Harbold.

The film begins shooting this month.

Synopsis:

The contemporary re-imagining of Mary Shelley’s timeless classic Frankenstein centers on Henry, a field surgeon suffering from PTSD after combat in the Middle East, who creates a man out of body parts in a makeshift lab in Gowanus, Brooklyn. The creature he creates must navigate a strange new world and the rivalry between Henry and his conniving collaborator Polidori.
