Lance Henriksen is a genre icon. And one of his most memorable roles is that of forensic profiler Frank Black from the “Millennium” television series. Those who loved the show will be very interested to learn about a new book, and a related movement looking to return the character to the air.

Back to Frank Black is a new book coming out next month containing a series of essays from an amazing group of contributors about the memorable “Millennium” series. And the Back to Frank Black movement is an effort to collaborate the efforts of fans of the show to inspire FOX Television to return their hero to the air in the future. Hey, it worked for “Family Guy,” why the hell not?

From the Press Release
Fourth Horseman Press has confirmed the September 2012 publication of Back to Frank Black, a book based on the FOX television series “Millennium” (1996-1999) and produced in association with the titular campaign to return its protagonist, Frank Black, to the screen.

Back to Frank Black offers fans of Millennium a hitherto unprecedented volume of material exploring this landmark series. The book features forewords from lead actor Lance Henriksen and co-executive producer Frank Spotnitz as well an introduction by series creator and executive producer Chris Carter. Back to Frank Black presents extensive interviews with cast and crew in addition to exclusive new material that includes an original essay by actress Brittany Tiplady. The collection further boasts essays from a number of authors with in-depth knowledge of the series including Joseph Maddrey, co-author of Lance Henriksen’s autobiography Not Bad for a Human (2011), and award-winning media critic John Kenneth Muir. The volume features cover artwork by Matthew Ingles and illustrations throughout by campaign founder James McLean.

“Millennium” tells the story of Frank Black (Lance Henriksen), a legendary forensic profiler gifted with the ability to see into the minds of the killers he seeks. Through his work as a consultant with the F.B.I. and the mysterious Millennium Group, the series offers a thoughtful exploration of the nature and manifestations of evil in the modern world. “Millennium” earned critical acclaim as well as a number of awards and nominations and remains highly regarded in the industry.

The Back to Frank Black movement—dedicated to seeing the return of “Millennium’s” unique hero to the screen—has gained support from throughout the entertainment industry, including active involvement from Henriksen himself.

Back to Frank Black is edited by Adam Chamberlain and Brian A. Dixon, publishers for Fourth Horseman Press and consultants to the Back to Frank Black campaign. The book will be available in both hard and soft cover editions with a multi-platform electronic edition set to be released later in the year. The collection will not be sold for profit and all proceeds will be donated to Lance Henriksen’s preferred registered charity, Children of the Night.

Watch a City Come Together and a Monster Created in These Videos From The Sinking City

Published

on

I’ve been keeping a very close eye on Frogwares’ The Sinking City, which is a 3rd person horror adventure that takes place in a world that is as inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes as it is by H.P. Lovecraft and his eldritch terrors. While still early in development, the team is beginning to share some pretty incredible things out of their offices (like these creepy statues) to keep the public up-to-date as well as show them just how much work goes into creating something so expansive and fascinating.

Today, I want to bring you a taste of the world that Frogwares is building through two videos. The first shows the process by which they created the actual city that the game takes place in. Obviously trying to hand create each and every building is a tedious process at best, nigh-well impossible task at its most realistic. Rather than attempt such a monumental undertaking, the team created a program that will build the city based on criteria that they set forth. It’s a very clever solution to a very real problem and the end result still feels like their personal touch is all over it.

The second video is a 3D time lapse of a monster as it goes from rough shape to a highly detailed, grotesquely designed monstrosity that is nothing short of nightmarish. It’s a chance to see how an artist creates something phenomenal from something so simple, each step adding a new layer of sickening, yet fascinating, macabre horror.

Jim Carrey and The Grinch Go Beyond Whoville

Published

on

Dr. Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a regular holiday staple in many households, including my own. The cartoon is just brilliant; and truth be told, the live action film captured a great deal of the magic infused within the original tale due in no small part to an electric and manic portrayal of the title character by Jim Carrey.

A new video has surfaced courtesy of Nerdist that’s a joyous play on the Netflix flick Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond – Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton. Check it out below. It’s SO worth your time.

The Crucifixion Review – Should’ve Left This One Nailed to the Cross

Published

on

Starring Sophie Cookson, Corneliu Ulici, Ada Lupu

Directed by Xavier Gens


Claiming to be inspired by actual events, director Xavier Gens’ The Crucifixion forgoes the affecting shocks and awes, and instead beats its audience into the ground with a laundry-list of ho-hum dialogue and lesser-than-stellar instances…forget the priest, I need a friggin’ Red Bull.

A 2005 case is spotlighted, and it revolves around a psychotically damaged woman of the cloth (nun for all you laymen) who priests believed was inhabited by ol’ Satan himself. With one rogue priest in command who firmly believed that this was the work of something satanic, the nun was subject to a horrific exorcism in which she was chained to a cross and basically left to die, which ultimately resulted in the priest being stripped of his collar and rosary…how tragic. Enter an overzealous New York reporter (Cookson) who is intently focused upon traveling to Romania to get the scoop on the botched undertaking. After her arrival, the only point of view that seems to keep sticking with interviewees is that the man who sat close to the lord killed a helpless, innocent and stricken woman, that is until she meets up with another nun and a village priest – and their claims are of something much more sinister.

From there, the battle between good and evil rages…well, let me rephrase that: it doesn’t exactly “rage” – instead, it simmers but never boils. Unfortunately for those who came looking for some serious Father Karras action will more than likely be disappointed. The performances border on labored with cursory characters, and outside of some beautiful cinematography, this one failed to chew out of its five-point restraints.

I’d normally prattle on and on about this and that, just to keep my word limit at a bit of a stretch, but with this particular presentation, there just isn’t much to bore you all with (see what I just did there). Gens certainly had the right idea when constructing this film according to blueprints…but it’s like one of those pieces of Wal-Mart furniture that when you open the box, all you can find are the instructions that aren’t in your language – wing and a prayer…but we all know what prayers get you, don’t we, Father?

My advice to all who come seeking some hellacious activity – stick to The Exorcist and you’ll never be let down.

Summary

The Crucifixion is one of those films that needs the help of the man above in order to raise its faith, but I think he might have been out to lunch when this one came around.
