Expectations are high for the thirteen-episode second season of Frank Darabont’s television adaptation of the Robert Kirkman zombie epic for AMC, “The Walking Dead”, and fans everywhere are wondering just what Season Two will hold. Read on for a few more details.

Our friends at FEARnet recently caught up with Darabont, who shed a little light on some burning questions.

On the possibility of seeing fan favorite Michonne this season, Darabont said, “When she [appears], she’s gonna rock your world. I can officially tell you Michonne is coming in the third season.” No possible casting ideas have been made available at this time, but at least we know when to expect her.

Also, on whether or not Stephen King and his son, Joe Hill, plan on penning any of this season’s episodes, “I’m keeping my fingers crossed. It’s just a matter of… They want to do it together. I’m proud to say that they’re both addicted fans of the show. In fact, Steve started harassing me by email, because I sent him the first one as soon as we had a lab pressing a disc. Like a decent Blu-ray. Then he started harassing me for the next one. Because Joe would drive up from wherever he lives, because he lives an hour away, and they’d sit and watch it together. [Laughs.] He’d say, ‘C’mon, where’s the next one?’ ‘It’s in the lab, Steve. We’re still mixing the sound. I’ll get it to you. I promise.’

In this latest season of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” TV series, the survivors arrive at Hershel’s Farm, where we will meet Hershel Greene, a vet (as in a veterinarian); his daughter, Maggie; and Otis (Pruitt Taylor Vince), the middle-aged ranch foreman who’s such a sweetheart that he all but loses it when he accidentally shoots a fellow survivor.

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.

The Harrowing Starring Michael Ironside and Arnold Vosloo Premiered at EFM

Published

on

The HarrowingOne of the great modern horror movie actors out there is Michael Ironside. No question. It is with this in mind, and our love for his performance in Turbo Kid, that we always look forward to a new Michael Ironside film.

Case in point, Jon Keeyes’ new, mind-bending horror-thriller The Harrowing co-starring and produced by Matthew Tompkins. The film held its world premiere and EFM debut in Berlin on Friday, February 18th and hopefully, this means we will be hearing about its eventual release very soon.

But until we know an official release date, you can check out the poster to the right, and a bunch of quotes from the filmmakers along with some choice stills below.

After that let us know what you think of The Harrowing thus far!

“As a lifelong genre fan, The Harrowing is a movie that is going to get audiences excited across the world,” Keeyes says. “We’ve carefully crafted an intelligent, suspenseful, tense thriller that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats while driving them down a road of psychological twists and turns. Right out of the gate, we pull them in with an explosive opening sequence and then keep them guessing as the mystery unfolds until we blow their minds in the final moments. Being able to construct such an intricate puzzle like this – that is both entertaining and thought-provoking – has been a joy.”

“We’re thrilled to screen The Harrowing to distributors and audiences for the very first time in Berlin.” Film Mode Entertainment’s Clay Epstein added. “Horror and thriller fans are in for the ride of their lives with The Harrowing – a gripping, mind-bending, nail-biter of a film that has a great deal of worldwide commercial appeal with the recent success of the genre.”

“The Harrowing is carefully constructed to be a powerful synergy of elements that make it one of those rare ‘elevated’ genre films with true crossover appeal to a wide variety of hardcore fans…,” Tompkins says. “The film is a potent mix of horror and supernatural elements that underpin a very smart, disturbing, and complicated psychological thriller…the idea of being able to drive the narrative utilizing all of these things, to truly pull that off, from both a commercial and artistic perspective, was a fantastic opportunity for us as Filmmakers.”

The Harrowing is written and directed by Jon Keeyes (American Nightmare, Fall Down Dead) and stars Michale Ironside (Scanners, Turbo Kid), Matthew Tompkins (Sicario) and Arnold Vosloo (The Mummy).

We’ll let you know when we hear more!

Synopsis:

A Vice Detective (Tompkins) is wrongly accused of the ritualistic murder of his best friend. Bent on finding the truth, he is plunged into Hell when he goes undercover and discovers the truth behind a demonic myth.
