San Diego Comic-Con 2012: Being Human Showrunner and Cast Drop a Few Hints for Season 3

Syfy's Being HumanHands down the funniest group we spoke with during Comic-Con was the cast of Syfy’s “Being Human”. We also caught their panel and learned a bit more than during the all too brief roundtable interviews. Their banter was so entertaining we totally didn’t care if we got scoops or not!

Executive producer Anna Ficke, who’s now the sole showrunner since her husband, Jeremy Carver, left “BH” for “Supernatural”, said his absence hasn’t affected the show since they wrote the first episode and worked out the arc of the whole season together. In fact, that morning they’d been talking about Aidan and Bishop – good news to fans of Mark Pellegrino, who also appeared in the Season 3 sizzle reel they showed us (we expect that to pop up online shortly).

They are well into filming the new season, which should begin airing some time in January, 2013. It picks up a little over a year after the end of Season 2. Now that dangerous, life threatening decisions have been made, what are the consequences? The theme is “be careful what you wish for.” There will be a lot more interaction among the roommates with them banding together to a greater extent.

Ficke mentioned a new guest star we hadn’t heard about yet. Along with Bobby Campo as a mortician and Xander Berkeley as Brynn and Connor’s father, Amy Aquino will be playing a mysterious woman who helps Josh and Aidan find Sally.

As far as similarities to the UK show, Ficke hasn’t watched past Season 1 to avoid any intentional crossover, but sometimes parallel storylines have emerged organically. As she sees it, “When you swim in the same supernatural pond, some similarities are bound to occur.

Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, and Sam Huntington are pretty much inseparable so their comments were constantly intertwined and, as mentioned, hilarious, but they were all quite stingy about revealing anything. Looking back at how far they’ve come, Meaghan mentioned that the most challenging aspect of her character at first was not being able to touch anything or anyone… and now it’s having to put up with each other.

Huntington was asked if there will there be any changes in the romance area for Josh in Season 3, and he assured us that everything he went through in Season 2 pays off beautifully. He and Nora are in a “really interesting place” now. And his relationship with Aidan reverses with Josh coming into his own; the wolf protects the vamp for a change.

Witwer provided the biggest spoiler of the day: Aidan gets out of the coffin! But he’s not firing on all cylinders, and social anxiety and awkwardness are introduced in the character. We will also see Aidan in yet another flashback to a different era this season.

Check out a couple of clips from the panel below; they’ll give you a good idea of the kind of shenanigans that went on.

Night of the Living Dead 4K and The Silence of the Lambs Come to the Criterion Collection

Published

on

It’s been a long time coming for these two classics, especially Night of the Living Dead after the ridiculously bad transfer put out by Mill Creek Entertainment, whose transfer was supposedly remastered from a new 2K scan. I swear I thought it was some kind of a joke when I first put it on to watch. In any event…

IndieWire is reporting that horror classics Night of the Living Dead and The Silence of the Lambs will be added to the 2018 Criterion Collection, a hallmark label for home video cinephiles.

According to the site, Criterion will release a new 4K digital restoration of The Silence of the Lambs, which has been approved by the movie’s cinematographer Tak Fujimoto. Included on the DVD and Blu-ray sets are 35 minutes of deleted scenes and audio commentary from 1994 featuring the late Jonathan Demme (director), stars Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins, screenwriter Ted Tally, and former FBI agent John Douglas.

Night of the Living Dead will also be released in 4K with never-before-seen 16mm dailies included as a bonus feature(!).

These will be added in February of 2018 so make sure you save up some cash after the holidays!

DIS Review – Not for the Faint of Heart!

Published

on

Starring Bill Oberst, Jr., Lori Jo Hendrix, Peter Gonzales Falcon

Directed by Adrian Corona


I’ve made this claim many a time on this website before, and in the company of film friends as well: Bill Oberst Jr. is one of those actors that can literally be thrust into ANY role, and deliver a performance with so much harnessed electricity that you couldn’t believe that it was possible. I was the lucky recipient chosen to get a look at his latest project, titled DIS, and I think that I can honestly say – this is the stuff that nightmares are constructed of.

Directed by Adrian Corona, this 60-minute dive into the black depths of hell, and in actuality DIS is located between circles # 6 and 9 in Dante’s Divine Comedy, and trust me when I tell you – there’s not a shred of comedic relief in this demented presentation. Oberst Jr plays an ex-soldier named Ariel, and his seemingly harmless jaunt through the woods will become anything but that, and judging from the film’s opening scenes, you are meant to feel as uncomfortable about this watch as any you might have checked out in recent memory.

Perversion is the norm here, and lord help you if you’re caught where you shouldn’t be…my skin’s crawling just thinking about what I saw. Ariel’s travels are basically dialogue-free, but it only adds to the infinite levels of creepiness – you can tell he’s being stalked, and the distance between he and the horrors that await are closing in rather quickly.

Visually by itself, this hour-long chiller can sell tickets without any assistance – hollowed-out buildings and long sweeping shots of a silent forest give the movie that look of complete desolation. Sliced up into three acts, the film wastes no time in setting up the story of a killer needing fresh blood to appease his Mandrake garden – seriously guys, I can’t type as much flashy stuff as there needs to be in order to describe this innately disturbing production.

If you’re one of those types who tends to shy away from the graphic side of things, then I’d HIGHLY advise you to keep your TV tuned to the Hallmark Channel for some holiday entertainment, because this one registers high on the “I can’t believe someone thought of this” meter. So the quick recap is this: Oberst Jr in a standout performance, visual excellence, and an unshakable sense of debasement on a cellular level – keep the kiddies out of the living room with this one. Corona should be lauded (or locked up – just kidding) for his work on this one – HIGHLY recommended, and one that I’ll throw down as a top 5 for me in 2017.

Summary

Director Corona should be lauded (or locked up – just kidding) for his work on this one – HIGHLY recommended!
