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 He is founder of the entertainment website Paranormal Pop Culture. His work has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Philadelphia Inquirer, The Miami Herald,, and 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!

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.

Todd and The Book of Pure Evil: The End of The End Coming to Blu-ray



If you were a fan of the kickass Canadian series “Todd and The Book of Pure Evil,” then you’re in for a real treat as the final chapter of the terrifyingly funny series, Todd and The Book of Pure Evil: The End of The End, is coming home.

Continuing where the critically acclaimed cult TV series left off, Todd & The Book of Pure Evil: The End of The End (review) returns to Crowley Heights to find Todd, Jenny and Curtis grieving the loss of their dear friend Hannah, whose death may or may not have been caused by Todd’s banishing of the Book. The three must reunite to fight evil when the Book of Pure Evil returns to Crowley High, bringing with it some familiar faces (Guidance Counselor Atticus Murphy Jr., Jimmy the Janitor, and The Metal Dudes) as well as some new foes, such as the Sweater Vest Beast and an Acidic Acne-Faced Teen. But these enemies are merely warm-ups to the final battle with their greatest nemesis yet: The New Pure Evil One, whose intimate knowledge of our heroes may ultimately lead to their destruction! Todd & The Book of Pure Evil: The End of The End is loaded with the same juvenile jokes, gore gags, and satanic sing-alongs that made the original TV series a world-wide hit.

Featuring the original award-winning cast providing their voices – Alex House, Maggie Castle, Bill Turnbull, Melanie Leishman, Chris Leavins and Jason Mewes, among others. The animated flick is directed by Craig David Wallace (co-creator and showrunner of the live action series) and Richard Duhaney, with a script by Wallace and co-creator Charles Picco, and original music by Shawn Pierce.

Metro Exodus Gets a Haunting New Cinematic Trailer



One of the biggest horror games of 2018 is Metro Exodus, the third installment in the critically acclaimed post-apocalyptic first-person franchise based on the novel by Dmitry Glukhovsky. We haven’t heard much about the game since it was announced at E3, although a brand new cinematic trailer debuted at the Game Awards ceremony. And while it didn’t show any actual gameplay footage, it did give us a look at some of the hideous monsters we can expect to encounter in the Russian wasteland when Metro Exodus launches on PS4, Xbox One, and PC late next year.

Like the previous entries in the franchise, Metro Exodus will be developed by Maltese developer 4A Games and published by Deep Silver.

Children of the Fall Review – This Israeli Slasher Gets Political



Starring Noa Maiman, Aki Avni, Yafit Shalev, Iftach Ophir, Michael Ironside

Directed by Eitan Gafny

Reviewed out of Utopia 2017

Slashers are a subgenre of horror that are often looked down upon. After all, what can a movie about a killer slaughtering multiple people have to say about, well…anything. Those of us in the community know full well that this is nonsense and that any kind of horror movie can be a jabbing (no pun intended) commentary on society, culture, politics, art, etc… And that’s precisely what Eitan Gafny aims to do with Children of the Fall, one of the few Israeli slashers ever created.

Set on the eve of the Yom Kippur war, the film follows Rachel (Maiman), a young American woman who comes to Israel to join a kibbutz after suffering some serious personal tragedies. Her goal to make aliyah (the return of Jews to Israel) is however hampered by some rather unpleasant encounters with local IDF soldiers and members of the kibbutz. Pushing through, she makes friends with others in the commune and her Zionistic views are only strengthened, although they do not go untested. Once Yom Kippur, one of the holiest holidays in Jewish culture, begins, a killer begins picking off the kibbutz workers one by one in violent and gruesome ways.

Let’s start with what Children of the Fall gets right, okay? As slashers go, it’s actually quite beautiful. There are wonderfully expansive shots that make use of the size and diversity of the kibbutz. The film opens with a beautiful shot of a cow stable, barn, water towers, and miscellaneous outbuildings, all set against a dark and stormy night. The lighting of this scene, and throughout the film, is also very good. I found myself darting my eyes across the screen multiple times throughout the film thinking I’d seen something lurking in the shadows.

The kills, while unoriginal, are very satisfying. Each death is meaty, bloody, and doesn’t feel rushed. In fact, the camera has no problems lingering during each kill, allowing us to appreciate the practical FX and copious amounts of blood used. And if you believe that a slasher needs to have nudity, you won’t be disappointed.

The acting is middle of the road. Maiman is serviceable as Rachel but the real star of the film is Yafit Shalev as “Yaron”. His range of emotion is fantastic, from warm and welcoming to Rachel when she arrives to emoting grief and pain during his Yom Kippur announcement where we learn that he was a child in a concentration camp. The rest of the cast are perfectly acceptable as fodder for the killer.

So where does Children of the Fall stray? Let’s start with the most obvious part: the runtime. Clocking in at nearly two hours, that’s about 30 minutes too much. The film could easily have gone through some hefty editing without affecting the final product. Instead, we have a movie that feels elongated when unnecessary.

Additionally, the societal and political commentary is very in-your-face but the film can’t seem to make up its mind as to what it’s trying to get across. Natalia, a Belarussian kibbutz worker, raises the concept of Israeli racism, misogyny, and xenophobia, her hostility unabashedly pouring out in the midst of IDF soldiers, locals, other kibbutz members, and more. Is there validity to what she’s saying? Undoubtedly. But there is also validity to Rachel’s retorts, which include calling this woman out on her own vitriolic views. This back-and-forth mentality frustratingly prevails throughout the film, as though Gafny was unwilling to just commit.

The dialogue is also quite painful at times, although I attribute this to difficulties with translating from Hebrew to English. Even the best English speakers in Israel don’t get everything perfect and the little quirks here and there, while charming, are quite detracting. Also, why is this movie trying to tell me that Robert Smith of The Cure is a character here? While amusing, it makes absolutely no sense nor does it fit in Smith’s own timeline.

Had this film gone through a couple rounds of editing, I feel like we’d have gotten something really great. Eitan Gafny is definitely someone that we need to be watching very closely.

  • Children of the Fall


While Children of the Fall has a lot going for it, it has just as much working against it. Overly long, you’ll get a really great slasher that is bogged down by uneven social and political commentary.
