Reminder - Dread Central Heads to Television with Back-to-Back Episodes of Paranormal Paparazzi TONIGHT!The moment has arrived, and we couldn’t be happier or more stoked! The Travel Channel television show we are a part of, “Paranormal Paparazzi,” debuts TONIGHT, September 28, at 4pm PT/7pm ET.

Consult your local listings for more!

That’s right, kids! Dread Central will be presenting a segment on several episodes of the new original series “Paranormal Paparazzi,” which premieres today only on Travel Channel.

This new sliver of spooky comes to us from the mind of “Ghost Adventures'” Zak Bagans, who serves as executive producer on the series, and is hosted by paranormal researcher, journalist, and personality Aaron Sagers (interview).

Sagers, host and co-exec producer of “Paranormal Paparazzi,” is an entertainment journalist and contributor to CNN.com. He is founder of the entertainment website Paranormal Pop Culture. His work has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Philadelphia Inquirer, The Miami Herald, Playboy.com, and MSNBC.com among other outlets. He has spoken at conventions such as San Diego Comic-Con and New York Comic Con of the topics of Pop Culture Curses, Celebrity Ghost Stories, Zombies, Apocalyptic Cultures, Horror, and Paranormal Entertainment. He has appeared on the Travel Channel and CNN and was a guest judge on “Paranormal Challenge.” He resides in NYC and is a professor of journalism at New York University.

I’m really excited about ‘Paranormal Paparazzi’ because it is such a unique addition to the paranormal genre,” says Sagers. “In a fast-paced format, my team of reporters travel around the country tracking down and filming the most current, bizarre, and unsolved paranormal stories. We also revisit some classic stories to shed new light, uncover fresh evidence, and get a new take from witnesses.

Sagers continues, “In each episode the audience travels along with my reporters and experiences what they do as they research, track down, and shoot their stories in the field. Then they return to our newsroom to share their reporting and findings to me – and we’ll hash out whether the story has real merit or not.

There is also a strong celebrity component as my reporters strike out to interview famous faces and dive into the horror world. There will be interviews with celebrities revealing their own paranormal experiences. We also go to a variety of places including a zombie survival camp in New Jersey, an apocalypse bunker in the mountains of Texas, the Amityville Horror house in New York, Will Ferrell’s haunted trailer in New Orleans, and more.”

“I’ve experienced some crazy things – a few of them with Zak and his crew,” Sagers adds, “but I’m still a skeptic. And this show lends itself to the skeptical crowd. For those who question the paranormal, or don’t believe in it at all, the show is still a fun ride that takes viewers to a variety of locations across the country they wouldn’t necessarily go to and shows them things they may not typically get to see.”

Speaking of Zak, he, too, chimed in on what viewers can expect from the new show.

I am SUPER-STOKED to have Dread Central involved in my new series, ‘Paranormal Paparazzi’” says Bagans. “They will be featured in various episodes, giving us exclusive inside-look segments within the horror and gore industry… there’s no one better to do this than them. ‘Paranormal Paparazzi’ is a macabre newsroom full of a group of diverse opinionated reporters led by Aaron Sagers giving us the most bizarre supernatural news headlines across the globe…. pop culture has never been so weird! I promise… you will laugh, you’ll get freaked out, you’ll fall in love and say “WTF is that?!?!?!?” A lot!!!!!!…this is ‘Paranormal Paparazzi.'”

As you can imagine, this is a HUGE step for us, and we’d like to thank Zak for taking a chance on our little asylum. Special thanks also go out to Dan Farrands, KW Low, Mike Maddocks, Jon Condit, Joe Townley, Adam Green, Debi Moore, Andrew Kasch, Buz “Danger” Wallick, and of course you guys. We have a lot of cool things in store for you cats and hope that you will dig it! We’re keeping a lid on exactly what and who for now, but believe me when I say star power and lunacy abound!

Synopsis
The all-new original series “Paranormal Paparazzi” features eight half-hour episodes, each of which follows Aaron Sagers’ (journalist, pop culture enthusiast, editor-in-chief of the Paranormal Pop Culture blog) hand-picked team of reporters as they travel around the country tracking down the most current, bizarre and unsolved paranormal stories. As Sagers’ team reveals their findings in the fast-paced newsroom, the group reviews and assesses whether or not the stories are bona fide or bogus. Through the lens of each reporter, viewers will travel to New Orleans and experience Will Ferrell’s haunted trailer, a UFO sighting at the Jersey Shore, a teenage exorcism squad in Arizona, a zombie survival camp in New Jersey, and more, including segments provided by Dread Central.

Class of 1999 Graduates to Blu-Ray in 2018

Published

on

Coming to blu-ray in early 2018 will be Class of 1999, which was originally released in 1990 and designed to be an unofficial sci-fi sequel to 1982’s Class of 1984, which itself received a special edition blu-ray in 2015. Confused yet?

In 1982, writer-director Mark L. Lester made Class of 1984, a slightly futuristic action thriller about teachers contending with teenage gangs in an inner-city high school. Lester would go on to grace us with Commando and Firestarter before returning to the premise in 1990 to give us the very futuristic Class of 1999. This time the action takes place near the turn of the millennium when gang violence overruns inner-city high schools to the point that the government steps in and replaces the teachers with reprogrammed military-grade battle androids. The super soldier cyborg faculty revert to their militaristic ways, naturally, and rack up quite a body count as they declare war on the student body leading to teenage gangs putting aside their difference to lead an anti-robot uprising in the halls of the school.

The time is the future, and youth gang violence is so high that the areas around some schools have become “free fire zones” into which not even the police will venture. When Miles Langford (Malcolm McDowell), the principal of Kennedy High School, decides to take his school back from the gangs, robotics specialist Dr. Robert Forrest (Stacy Keach) provides “tactical education units.” These human-like androids have been programmed to teach and are supplied with weapons to handle discipline problems. These kids will get a lesson in staying alive!

Boasting a screenplay by Full Moon stalwart C. Courtney Joyner and a cast including the likes of Stacy Keach, Pam Grier, Malcolm McDowell, Patrick Kilpatrick, and Traci Lind; Class of 1999 and its unique Stand and Deliver meets The Warriors meets The Terminator premise has garnered a loyal cult following over the years. We won’t mention the sequel. Forget I even brought it up. Sequel? What sequel?

Lionsgate Home Entertainment has announced Class of 1999 will be the next title getting a blu-ray release as part of their Vestron Collector’s Series in the first semester of 2018 with a fully loaded edition guaranteed to please fans and those that have yet to be educated on this enjoyable early Ninties b-movie extravaganza.

Disc extras will include:

Audio Commentary with Producer/Director Mark L. Lester
Interviews with Director/Producer Mark L. Lester and Co-Producer Eugene Mazzola
Interview with Screenwriter C. Courtney Joyner
Interviews with Special Effects Creators Eric Allard and Rick Stratton
Interview with Director of Photography Mark Irwin
Trailer & TV Spot
Still Gallery
Video Promo
Optional English, English SDH, and Spanish subtitles for the main feature

Class of 1999 graduates to blu-ray on January 30th.

KISS Meets Army of Darkness in New Comic Miniseries!

Published

on

Dynamite Entertainment just announced that they are planning to bring two of their bestselling brands together in “KISS/Army of Darkness #1”. The new comic book series will unite the rock band with none other than Ash for some Deadite ass kicking.

The series will be written by Chad Bowers and Chris Sims and illustrated by Ruairi Coleman. And the debut issue of “KISS/Army of Darkness” features three art covers from Kyle Strahm, Goni Montes, and Ken Haeser.

You can find all three covers below along with quotes from the creative team. After looking through all of that make sure to hit us up and let us know how excited you are about this new hybrid comic series in the comments below or on social media!

With Ash vs. The Army of Darkness, Chris and I were given kind of carte blanche to do whatever we wanted to the world of AOD, and we went for broke,” Co-writer Chad Bowers says. “We introduced some new characters and concepts, and built a legacy for Ash’s comics adventures that I’m immensely proud of, but not in a million years could I have guessed we’d get to continue that momentum with the added bonus of tossing the world’s greatest rock n’ roll band into the mix! I’ve been in the tank for KISS since I was in middle school. I remember buying the KISS tribute album, KISS My Ass for the Lemonheads (they covered Plaster Caster), which lead to me picking up Greatest Hits, and so on. But when I found out there was a KISS comic with blood in it, I signed up for life! Of course, I adore the songs (literally listening to Do You Love Me right now), but I’m just as obsessed with the way KISS transcends the music to become something of a genre themselves. It’s something I think about a lot, honestly, so no surprise, it’s a big part of our story too!”

“When it comes to Army of Darkness, I guess you could say that Ash is a bit of a gambler, but he’s nobody’s fool,” Co-writer Chris Sims says. “And since our first story was set back at Alan Shepard High, we’re looking forward to showing him some things that you can’t learn in school. Okay, okay, I’ll stop with the deep-cut lyrics now, but for real — if you thought Deadites at Homecoming and the Supernatural Military-Adjacent Response Team were taking Ash in a new direction, just wait until you see how we team him up with the Starchild, Space Ace, the Demon, and the Catman. In the grand tradition of the film, we’re tearing up the entire space-time continuum and if you think you know how weird this is gonna get… well, you sure know somethin’!”

“Having done some work for Dynamite in the past, I’ve really been wanting to get my foot in the door here for a long time so I can play in the sandbox of the amazing licenses they have,” Artist Ruairi Coleman says. “Chief among those, and high up on my bucket list, is Army of Darkness: Hail to the king, baby! So, when I was offered the job of drawing the KISS/Army of Darkness crossover, I couldn’t believe my luck! The concept is totally bonkers, but in a way, that would make complete sense in the world of Army of Darkness. Thinking about it, I’m surprised it hasn’t been done already and I’m honored (and more than a little intimidated) to be the guy who draws it.”

“After a more than 40-year career, KISS continues to be one of rock’s most celebrated bands, while Army of Darkness continues to be a staple in the comic book industry. We’re both honored to have the opportunity to work so closely with Gene and Paul to bring their world-renowned alter-egos to comics alongside our very own Ashy Slashy,” says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. “The raging guitar chords and pyrotechnic spectacle of their stage shows could have come straight from the pages of the Necronomicon, and this epic battle between The Demon and Deadites will appeal to the hellions in all of us!”

Issue #1 will be available on digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, Madefire, and Dark Horse Digital.

The KISS/Army of Darkness miniseries event hits February 2018.

Synopsis:

KISS is on top of the world and rocking faces until the night disciples of The Destroyer show up and the band disappears. With the tour canceled, a young Ash misses one of the most important events of his life that will change his destiny. Now the Chosen One has to get back on the right path and join the KISS ARMY OF DARKNESS!
