AMC Reveals Return Date for Fear the Walking Dead and New Trailer for The Terror

Published

on

AMC dropped a ton of news on viewers yesterday from the Television Critics Association’s Winter 2018 Press Tour, and of interest to our readers should be the return date of “Fear the Walking Dead” for its fourth season along with a new trailer for the network’s fact-based “The Terror.” For the sci-fi fans in the house, we also have more details on “AMC Visionaries: James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction,” which kicks off in April.

From the Press Release:
AMC announced from the Television Critics’ Association (TCA) Press Tour the premiere dates for new and returning series, including “Fear the Walking Dead” Season 4  and “AMC Visionaries: James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction.” As previously announced, AMC’s suspense thriller “The Terror” will premiere with back-to-back episodes beginning Monday, March 26th, at 9:00 PM ET/PT.

“THE TERROR”
Monday, March 26, at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT
As previously announced, “The Terror,” from executive producers Ridley Scott, David Kajganich, and Soo Hugh, prepares to take viewers on a harrowing journey with a two-hour series premiere. Inspired by a true story, “The Terror” centers on the Royal Navy’s perilous voyage into uncharted territory as the crew attempts to discover the Northwest Passage. Faced with treacherous conditions, limited resources, dwindling hope, and fear of the unknown, the crew is pushed to the brink of extinction. Frozen, isolated, and stuck at the end of the earth, “The Terror” highlights all that can go wrong when a group of men, desperate to survive, struggle not only with the elements, but with each other.

The ten-episode series stars Jared Harris (“The Crown,” “Mad Men”) as Captain Francis Crozier; Tobias Menzies (“Outlander”) as Captain James Fitzjames; Ciarán Hinds (“Game of Thrones”) as Sir John Franklin; Paul Ready (“Cuffs”) as Dr. Henry Goodsir; Adam Nagaitis (Suffragette) as Cornelius Hickey; Nive Nielsen (The New World) as Lady Silence; Ian Hart (Finding Neverland) as Thomas Blanky; and Trystan Gravelle (“Mr Selfridge”) as Henry Collins.

“The Terror” is produced by Scott Free, Emjag Productions, and Entertainment 360 in association with AMC Studios. In addition to Kajganich and Hugh, the series is executive produced by Ridley Scott, David W. Zucker, Alexandra Milchan, Scott Lambert, and Guymon Casady.

“FEAR THE WALKING DEAD” Season Four
Sunday, April 15, at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT
(NOTE: Subsequent episodes will air at 9:00pm ET/PT beginning April 22)
In Season 4 of “Fear the Walking Dead,” we will see the world of Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) and her family through new eyes — the eyes of Morgan Jones (Lennie James), joining the story from the world of “The Walking Dead.” The characters’ immediate past mixes with an uncertain present of struggle and discovery as they meet new friends, foes, and threats. They fight for each other, against each other, and against a legion of the dead to somehow build an existence against the crushing pressure of lives coming apart. There will be darkness and light; terror and grace; the heroic, mercenary, and craven – all crashing together towards a new reality for “Fear the Walking Dead.”

Produced by AMC Studios, “Fear the Walking Dead” is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, as well as Robert Kirkman, David Alpert, Gale Anne Hurd, and Greg Nicotero.

“AMC VISIONARIES: JAMES CAMERON’S STORY OF SCIENCE FICTION”
Monday, April 30, at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT
“AMC Visionaries: James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction” is a uniquely intimate, insiders’ look at the origins of the genre that has become a cornerstone of popular culture. Throughout each episode of the six-part television series, Academy Award-winning writer, director, and producer James Cameron explores science fiction’s roots, futuristic vision, and our fascination with its ideas through interviews with A-list storytellers, stars, and others whose careers have defined the field, including Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Ridley Scott, Christopher Nolan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Will Smith, and Sigourney Weaver, among many others.

Cameron takes us on a journey of discovery and exploration, helping us understand where science fiction’s ideas came from – and where they’re taking us. “AMC Visionaries: James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction” is executive produced by Cameron, Maria Wilhelm and Ken Druckerman and Banks Tarver of Left/Right TV. The series is co-executive produced by showrunner Jeff Cooperman and Mike Mezaros.

“AMC Visionaries” is a year-round documentary series in which groundbreaking artists curate and author the untold stories and fascinating histories of their respective genres. In addition to the recently aired “AMC Visionaries: Robert Kirkman’s Secret History of Comics,” previously announced series falling under the “AMC Visionaries” banner include the upcoming “AMC Visionaries: Eli Roth’s History of Horror” and “AMC Visionaries: Rap Yearbook.”

A recent scientific study concluded that since the year 2000 there have 4,374,139 killer Bigfoot movies. 2006’s Abominable is one of the better Sasquatch-ploitation flicks of the era. Now this creature feature is getting a collector’s edition blu-ray complete with a brand new cut of the gruesome flick.

MVD Rewind Collection has announced they’re planning a special edition of Ryan Schifrin’s gory Hitchcock-influenced Bigfoot flick Abominable, which cast Matt McCoy as a wheelchair bound man who begins Rear Window-ing a psycho Sasquatch terrorizing his hot-blooded cabin neighbors that then turns his big foot towards him.

It has been sighted 42,000 times in 68 countries, a vicious creature of myth and legend called Sasquatch, Yeti, and perhaps most infamously, Bigfoot. It’s been hunted it for years. But what happens when it decides to hunt us?



After recovering from a horrific accident, paraplegic Preston Rogers (Matt McCoy) moves back into the remote cabin where he and his now-deceased wife once lived. When his new neighbor Karen, is attacked by a gigantic creature, Rogers contacts the local authorities. But after the police and those around him dismiss Rogers as a delusional widower, he sets out to stop the abominable creature himself.

This won’t be your typical collector’s edition as not only will be getting a new high definition transfer of the film originally shot on 35mm, this will also include an all-new cut of the film with improved CGI-effects overseen by filmmaker Schifrin and editor Chris Conlee with enhanced color timing and correction.

Horror Retro Caps Boasts Hats Featuring The Lamp, The Video Dead, Rosemary’s Killer and more!

Published

on

Yesterday I was stumbling around on Instagram and I came across this killer account called @horrorretrocaps. They make horror movie-themed hats and I felt the need to share their work with you guys today.

It’s not so much the hats (which are cool), or the quality of the product (which looks sound as a pound) but it is the obvious love of horror by the guys behind the scenes that gets me all warm and fuzzy.

I mean sure there are products like A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. But they also have hats celebrating such classics as The Outing, The Lamp (hell, yeah!), The Gate, Zombie Lake, and The Video Dead.

Nice!

On top of that, the product that sealed the deal for me was their Rosemary’s Killer hat. As some of you might know, Rosemary’s Killer is the alternate title of Joseph Zito’s underrated slasher The Prowler. That alone just earned them horror-cred for days.

You can check out some of their choice caps below and then head on over to their account to purchase some product: @horrorretrocaps.

All caps are $15 plus $4 shipping in the U.S., and he also takes requests for $20.

Enjoy!
