San Diego Comic-Con 2012: Dexter Panel Highlights; Watch the First Two Minutes of Season 7!The “Dexter” Comic-Con panel just ended, and while, per usual, not a lot was revealed about the upcoming Season 7, we did get a peek at the first two minutes of the season opener and a few other choice tidbits to share. Read on for the details – if you don’t mind a few spoilers.

First a “Dexter” fan art contest was revealed. Visit dexterfanart.com for more details on that.

Next the new “Dexter 2: The Game” was mentioned (find out more about that here), and then we saw a sneak peek of the first episode of “Dexter Early Cuts: All in the Family” in which Dexter is stalking someone who ritualistically kills on New Year’s Eve. Good stuff!

Finally we got to the meat of the panel with a quick video recap of Season 6, which led right into the reason we were all there: the first look at Season 7.



Then the panel started with stars Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter, guest star Yvonne Strahovski, showrunner Scott Buck, and producer Wendy West.

All they would tell us about Yvonne’s character, Hannah McKay, is that she’s a woman of mystery with a dark past who helps Dexter with an investigation into an old murder.

What about Deb? Does she finally “know” what’s up now? Jennifer Carpenter said no, she’s taking it one step at a time – one forward, ten back.

What about Dexter becoming more human? Hall said he is learning the darker side of human nature – manipulative, paranoid, self-centered. That was followed by a funny moment when Hall was asked by a fan how he’s like Dexter – he turned to Jennifer Carpenter and asked, “You want to answer that?”

If the theme of Season 6 was spirituality, what about Season 7? Buck said it’s the simplest of all – What are the consequences of love?

Hall was asked if he can explain the appeal of the character to so many people. He said it appeals to people in a lot of different ways, but mostly he thinks it’s that we all have a shadow side we have to hide and manage.

What about Harry (James Remar, who unfortunately wasn’t there)? We’ll see Harry as usual in Season 7 and also in flashbacks to when Dex and Deb were young.

How will Deb evolve this season? Carpenter said she feels lost with no compass. The tables have turned – Dexter is moving with certainty now, and she’s trapped in her own fucking head.

And Dex’s relationship with Harrison? As Harrison becomes more perceptive, the situation becomes dicier. Dexter has to face what he’s trying to pull off as a parent.

Finally, what was Dexter’s most satisfying kill? As expected, Hall said the biggest prize was Trinity. But they’re like his children – he loves them all!

The new season begins September 30th on Showtime. For more in the meantime be sure to visit “Dexter” on Facebook, and follow “Dexter” on Twitter.

Zac Efron Looks Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Ted Bundy

Published

on

We told you a while back that Zac Efron would be assuming the role of charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger’s new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (that title is a wondrous mouthful); and today Efron himself took to Twitter to share the first image of himself as Bundy. Check it out!

Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

Principal photography began back in October 2017.

Make a Date With The Devil and Father Amorth

Published

Well, that headline’s not entirely accurate… you wouldn’t want to be a third wheel now, would you? What we’re talking about here is William Friedkin’s new documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. In it Friedkin witnesses first-hand the work of the Vatican’s in-house exorcist; and if that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will!

Deadline is reporting today that we can expect to see the flick sometime this spring in theaters via The Orchard.

Known as the “Dean of Exorcists,” Father Amorth (who turned 92 not so long ago) has performed thousands of exorcism rituals to rid evil from the human body.

In the early 1970s when I directed The Exorcist, I had not witnessed an exorcism; but I wondered how close I had come to portraying reality,” Friedkin tells the site. “I had been curious to meet Father Amorth for many years; and when he granted permission to meet and film him in Rome last May, it was the opportunity to complete the circle and see how close that film came to reality.
