Second Teaser Trailer for Being Human on BBC America Begins the Final Season CountdownIt’s almost here! The final season of “Being Human” (UK) premieres this Saturday, July 13th, on BBC America, and we have a second teaser trailer to share.

The fifth and final season of “Being Human” premieres July 13th at 10:00pm ET/PT as part of BBC America’s Supernatural Saturday.

Synopsis:
At the end of Series 4, viewers witnessed former housemate and ghost Annie (Lenora Crichlow) meeting her supernatural end when she saved the world from being ruled by the powerful vampire group “The Old Ones.” Now Hal (Damien Molony) and Tom (Michael Socha) have a new ghost in the midst of their Honolulu Heights home in Alex (Kate Bracken), a vibrant tomboy who lost her life to a vampire’s fangs in retribution for a crime Hal committed 100 years earlier. After being marooned to the afterlife by Hal, their former romance turned sour. With Hal reeling from guilt and desperately trying to tame his thirst, this season sees him conflicted between his hedonistic vampire instincts and being an upright citizen. Meanwhile, Tom’s ambition is to gain confidence and progress in life. He is determined to get noticed by his peers and prepared to take action to make it happen – but at what cost?

With bills to pay, Hal and Tom find new employment at the Barry Grand Hotel. The hotel, however, is the home of a poisonous retiree, Captain Hatch (Phil Davis, “Whitechapel,” “Sherlock”), who on the surface seems to be a grumpy old man. But unbeknownst to them, he hides a dark secret that threatens not only the housemates’ friendships but the entire world. Obscurely, Captain Hatch manipulates the way the trio feels about each other, and suddenly minor disagreements turn into major conflicts. Gradually their treasured trust decreases; and Hal, Tom, and Alex’s common goal – to find humanity – becomes more distant than ever before.

This final season also sees Mr. Rook, the shady figure whose government department protects the world from supernaturals, battling to hold on to his power. Much to his horror, the government intends to close his organization due to high running costs. Attempting to justify his association’s existence and keep his job, Mr. Rook creates problems to prove the danger posed by supernaturals.

In a town where a threat is lurking around every corner and where the Devil is growing stronger each day, Hal, Tom, and Alex need to overcome their differences and unite in order to save themselves and the world from destruction. Even the best of friends can become enemies in a ruthless world, but collectively they will try to rise against the evil like true heroes.

“Being Human” is produced by Touchpaper Wales (part of Zodiak Media Group), Cymru Wales for the BBC and co-produced by BBC AMERICA.

EPISODE ONE – SATURDAY, JULY 13, 10:00PM ET/PT
Chained up like an animal, Hal frantically requests to be set free by best friend Tom and new housemate Alex. Once released, Hal is accidentally involved in innocent bystander Crumb’s (Colin Hoult) death and “saves” him by recruiting him as a vampire. But the disobedient vampire proves to be difficult to handle. Meanwhile, Mr. Rook (Steven Robertson), a civil servant in charge of keeping supernaturals at bay, is told that his secret department is being shut down.

EPISODE TWO – SATURDAY, JULY 20, 10:00PM ET/PT
Alex feels like the house is haunted by another ghost, but Hal and Tom aren’t convinced. Besides, they have more important things to think about, like the Employee of the Month competition at the hotel they are desperate to win. In the interim, Captain Hatch secretly turns Hal and Tom’s contest into a competitive battle… Meanwhile, Mr. Rook has a plan to justify his secret government department by using the new and slightly unhinged vampire Crumb to show the importance of keeping supernaturals under control.

EPISODE THREE – SATURDAY, JULY 27, 10:00PM ET/PT
Television weatherman Larry Chrysler (Julian Barratt, “The Mighty Boosh”) is successful – beauty-queen wife, sharp suits, and flashy cars – but he is also untrustworthy and not what he seems. However, Tom doesn’t realize any of that because he is enamored with Larry and sees him as a new mentor. Meanwhile, Hal meets his old ghost friend Lady Mary (Amanda Hale, “Ripper Street”), which sparks intense jealousy from Alex.

EPISODE FOUR – SATURDAY, AUGUST 3, 10:00PM ET/PT
Mr. Rook is desperate as his government department inches closer to its end, and in order to prevent it from happening, he sets off searching for private investors. Ahead of his trip, he leaves Bobby (Ricky Grover, “EastEnders”) – a werewolf who has been on lockdown for decades – under Tom’s supervision. However, Captain Hatch has other plans for Bobby. While Hal is entrusted with getting vampire Crumb in order, Alex is not so sure he can be managed.

EPISODE FIVE – SATURDAY, AUGUST 10, 10:00PM ET/PT
Tom falls for new hotel staff member Natasha (Kathryn Prescott, “Skins”), but she has come to the attention of Hal for seedier reasons. Meanwhile, Alex is positive there is something suspect about hotel resident Captain Hatch. Reeling from unfortunate occurrences at the hotel, Alex is determined to get to the bottom of it, even if it means putting her safety at risk.

EPISODE SIX – SATURDAY, AUGUST 17, 10:00PM ET/PT
In the shocking series finale, hotel resident Captain Hatch is determined to cause as much chaos and devastation as possible. While Hal is turning excessively malicious, Tom has returned to his default setting – vampire killer. Alex, knowing the truth about Captain Hatch, needs to join the trio in order to prevent Captain Hatch’s plan, but at what cost to humanity?

Alien: Covenant’s Carmen Ejogo Joins True Detective Season 3

Published

on

“From the dusty mesa her looming shadow grows…”

The first season of HBO’s “True Detective” was one of the best seasons ever put on a TV screen. Hands down. The second season was another story altogether. While not a complete waste of time (Colin Farrell owed) the season was basically merely ‘meh’.

But what about “True Detective” season 3?

Well, a few months back it was announced that the third season had been greenlit by HBO, with creator Nic Pizzolatto returning to pen the series and director Jeremy Saulnier (Green Room) taking the helm of the episodes.

Today we have news that Carmen Ejogo – who you may recognize Ejogo from such recent fright flicks as It Comes at Night, Alien: Covenant, and The Purge: Anarchy – will be joining the previously announced Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) for Season 3.

Ejogo will play the female lead, Amelia Reardon, who THR describes as “an Arkansas schoolteacher with a connection to two missing children in 1980.”

Nice Pizzolatto will serve as showrunner and direct alongside Jeremy Saulnier. Executive producers include Pizzolatto, Saulnier, Scott Stephens and season one stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as well as original director Cary Joji Fukunaga. Steve Golin, Bard Dorros and Richard Brown are also credited as exec producers.

Synopsis:

A macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.

Danielle Harris Tried to Get Jamie Lloyd into New Halloween Movie

Published

on

One of the top films all of us are looking forward to the most here at Dread Central is Blumhouse’s upcoming sequel/reboot thing to John Carpenter’s Halloween.

The new Halloween (2018) film is written by Danny McBride and David Gordon Green and is all set to be directed by Green this year. Recently we learned that original Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis was going to be returning to the new film.

Not only that, but Curtis’ classic character Laurie Strode would have a daughter… played by Judy Greer. But what about Danielle Harris?

After all, Harris was the star of Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers and Halloween 5: The Curse of Michael Myers. Let alone, she had a starring role in both Rob Zombie’s remake and it’s sequel. So how about the new film?

Turns out Harris tried to get her character Jamie Llyod (aka the daughter of Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode) from Halloween 4 and 5 into the new film… but she was turned down by Blumhouse and the new creative team. That sucks.

Harris was pretty bummed about the whole deal and took to Facebook recently to clear the air. You can check out quotes from her video, along with the video itself, below.

After that make sure to hit us up and let us know how much you would have liked to see Harris return to Halloween in the comments below or on social media!

“What I am bummed about is… [Laurie] has a daughter,” Harris says. “I was okay with it when she had a son… but they’re saying it’s the last one and… she has a daughter. And it’s not Jamie. It’s just kind of a bummer, I guess. I think somebody had said, it wouldn’t have hurt the movie to have Jamie reunited with [Laurie]. But that didn’t happen.”

“We did put in a call, thought it’d be kinda cool even just to have a little flashback…” She continues. “They were not interested. So. I tried.”

Blumhouse’s Halloween hits theaters October 19, 2018.

Through the Cracks – Trick or Treat (1986) Review

Published

on

Starring Marc Price, Tony Fields, Lisa Orgolini, Glen Morgan, Gene Simmons, and Ozzy Osbourne

Directed by Charles Martin Smith


I have been a horror fan for more than half of my life at this point. Meaning I have seen most of the quality horror offerings under the sun. But that said, every once in awhile a classic sneaks past so we wanted to create this “Through the Cracks” review section for such films.

Case in point, I had never seen the Halloween horror flick Trick or Treat until last night. I know, right? How the hell did that happen? But these things do happen and so for everyone that has seen the flick a million times, this will be a review of the movie from a super horror fan that – at the age of 33 – is seeing Trick or Treat for the very first time.

Now let’s get to it.

First off you have to love the movie’s plot. Mixing horror and heavy metal seems like a given, yet preciously few films Frankenstein these two great tastes together.

Like many of you out there, I am a big metal fan as well as a big horror fan. The two seem to go together like chocolate and peanut butter. Or Jason and horny campers.

I dig bands like Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, and even those hair metal bands (Dokken forever!) and I’m well aware of the legends surrounding playing these records backward.

Off the top of my head, the only other flick that combines the two to this degree is the (relatively) recent horror-comedy Deathgasm. I say more horror-metal flicks! Or should we call it Metal-Horror? Yeah, that’s a much more metal title.

It only makes sense that someone, somewhere would take the idea of “What if Ozzy Osbourne really was evil and came back from the dead (you know, if he had passed away during his heyday) to torment a loner fan?” Great premise for a movie!

And Trick or Treat delivers on the promise of this premise in spades. Sammi Curr is an epic hybrid of the best of the best metal frontmen and his resurrection via speaker is one of the great horror birthing scenes I have seen in all my years.

Add to that the film feels like a lost entry in the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. More specifically the film feels like it would fit snugly in between two of my favorite entries in that series, Dream Warriors and The Dream Master.

This movie is 80’s as all f*ck and I loved every minute of it.

And speaking of how this film brought other minor classics to the forefront of my brain, let’s talk about the film’s central villain, Sammi Curr. This guy looks like he could share an epic horror band with the likes of Mary Lou from Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II and the Drill Killer rocker from Slumber Party Massacre Part II.

Picture that band for a moment and tell me they aren’t currently playing the most epic set in Hell as we speak. I say let’s see an Avengers-style series of films based on these minor horror icons sharing the stage and touring the country’s high school proms!

In the end Trick or Treat has more than it’s fair share of issues. Sammi Curr doesn’t enter the film until much too late and is dispatched way too easily. Water? Really? That’s it?

That said, the film is still a blast as director Charles Martin Smith keeps the movie rocking like an 80’s music video with highlights being Sammi’s rock show massacre at the prom and his final assault on our hero teens in the family bathroom.

Rockstar lighting for days.

Even though the film has issues (zero blood, a rushed ending) none of that mattered much to this horror hound as the film was filled to the brim with striking horror/metal imagery and a killer soundtrack via Fastway and composer Christopher Young.

Plus you’ve got to love the cameos by Gene Simmons (boy, his character just dropped right out of the movie, huh?) and Ozzy Osbourne as a mad-as-hell Preacher that isn’t going to take any more of this devil music. P.S. Watch for the post-credits tag.

More than a few of my closest horror buddies have this film placed high on their annual Halloween must-watch lists. And after (finally) viewing the film for myself, I think I just may have to add the film to mine as well. Preferably on VHS.

Trick or Treat is an 80’s horror classic. If you dig films like Popcornand if you put the film off like I did, remedy that tonight and slap a copy in the old VHS/DVD player.

Just don’t play it backward… God knows what could happen.

All said and done, I enjoyed the hell out of my first viewing of Trick or Treat. But what do YOU think of the film? Make sure to hit us up and let us know below or on social media!

Now bring on Trick or Treat 2: The Prom Band from Hell, featuring Sammi Curr, Mary Lou Maloney, and Atanas Ilitch’s Driller Killer from Slumber Party Massacre Part II!

  • Trick or Treat (1986) 3.5
3.5

Summary

Charles Martin Smith’s Trick or Treat is a sure-fire Halloween treat for fans of 80’s horror flicks, as well as fans of heavy metal music.
