#SDCC 2013: Everything We Learned About The Vampire Diaries Season 5During the SDCC roundtables for “The Vampire Diaries,” we chatted with most of the stars in attendance, but per usual the bulk of our info came from the show’s executive producer, in this case Caroline Dries.

Candice Accola – Caroline
– She’s excited about Caroline going to college because Candice herself never went.
– Last season began with a dark tone, but this new season starts lighter because a lot of the characters are not aware of the new threat.
– There may be possibilities for Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Caroline to cross paths again, but right now the producers want both shows to stand on their own.

Nina Dobrev – Elena
– Nina had one piece of advice to Paul Wesley upon learning that he’ll be playing two characters also: “Sleep now while you still can!”

Ian Somerhalder – Damon
– The producers are trying to dial down the darkness of the show, tone-wise and color-wise. So for Season 5 they are returning to the interactions among the characters like in earlier seasons and not just depending on big action and explosions.

Paul Wesley – Stefan
– Stefan is having hallucinations under the water.
– Silas is impersonating Stefan very well, at least at the beginning, but eventually it’ll be very apparent who’s who.

Caroline Dries – Executive Producer
– They create their own mythology but try to ground their ideas on the already existing concept. So the idea of Silas was conceived from the devil serpent.
– They rejected the Dracula idea because it was too literal and the fans probably would make fun of it.
– Even though Damon was turned human in the books, the producers didn’t think there’d be much stakes resulting from it after the audience got over the initial shock. They also didn’t want to see Damon stop killing people. So they decided on Katherine because while she makes the best vampire, she would make the worst human.
– In the first episode in Season 5, Katherine will try to get turned back into a vampire, but that cannot happen anymore for her.
– Katherine continues to be bitchy, conniving and manipulative even though now she is a human that can get sick, be hurt and killed.
– Last season there were too many characters and storylines, and since “The Originals” have their own show, “TVD” has finished telling all the stories about the Originals on this show.
– Crossovers will happen, but it’s hard to coordinate the storylines of both shows far enough ahead of time to work together. However, both shows’ offices are located next to each other so…
– In the show no one knows Bonnie has died, and eventually the audience will see what the other side looks like from Bonnie’s point of view.
– Right now the producers have no immediate plans to bring Bonnie back to life. The reason they killed Bonnie was because they had run the gamut of storylines to put a witch through that are not clichéd.
– The doppelganger mythology will unfold this year, and the audience will learn why Stefan is Silas’ doppelganger.
– We can expect some flashbacks about Silas, especially in Episode 5.03.
– Having taken over Stefan’s identity, Silas manages to fool everyone, but Damon should catch on soon because he knows his brother so well.

Dread Central Assembles Ghost Hunters to Investigate the Winchester Mystery House

Published

on

On Friday, February 2nd, Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built arrives in theaters. The film, directed by Michael and Peter Spierig and starring Helen Mirren, is based on actual events.

While many movies claiming to be based on true stories are actually highly fictionalized, that’s not the case this time. The subject, Sarah Winchester was real; the location, a labyrinthine mansion, still stands. And tonight, we’re being given unprecedented access to “The House That Ghosts Built”. Our goal: To determine if the estate deserves its reputation as one of the most haunted locations in America.

While the Winchester Mystery House, as it’s now known, sees visitors almost every day, we’re conducting our investigation after hours—at night. Not only does this opportunity afford us a more intimate experience, we’re being allowed into areas restricted to the general public. We’ve assembled a team of some of the country’s leading paranormal investigators and psychic mediums, who will attempt a variety of techniques in order to detect the supernatural entities long rumored to roam these halls.

Tim Wood is a paranormal investigator and founder of the TV series In Search of the Paranormal which launched in 2006; he’ll be bringing his team members Kristen Manning, a medium who uses her drawing talents to tap into supernatural vibrations, and Patrick Langdon, an investigator who utilizes special cameras to detect paranormal remnants.

Tim Meunier is the founder of American Paranormal Investigations as well as the founder of both the Sacramento Horror Film Festival and the bi-annual Sinister Creature Con. Michael B. Chochla is a medium and member of River City Paranormal and Michelle Goyette has been working as a professional spiritualist for over 5 years, specializing in connecting the living with loved ones who have passed over.

The estate is so complex, a previously undocumented room was discovered as recently as 2016, so there’s truly no telling what awaits us within.

We’ll be joined by an on-site historian and a camera crew who will document our entire visit. Whether we come away with answers to some of the Winchester Mystery House’s most enduring secrets remains to be seen, but we’ll be sharing the results of our investigation in the days leading up to the release of Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built. Stay tuned!

About The Winchester Mystery House: “Since 1923 the story of Sarah Winchester and her incredibly peculiar house has fascinated more than 12 million people from around the world who have toured its lonely hallways, dark passages and ornate rooms. Come and be intrigued by this truly American tale with its combination of the beautiful and the bizarre, its narrative of heartbreak, tenacity and invention and its flourishes of the paranormal and spirits.”

Here’s what you can expect on a Mansion Tour“Sarah Winchester was a true woman of independence, drive, and courage who lives on in legend as a grieving widow who continuously built (and built and built) onto her initially small, two-story farmhouse to appease the spirits of those killed by the guns manufactured by her husband’s firearms company.

 “Today you can tour through 110 of the 160 rooms of Sarah’s stately mansion, known around the world as the Winchester Mystery House, and see the bizarre attributes that give the mansion its name; a window built into the floor, stairs leading to ceilings, doors that open onto blank walls, a seeming obsession with the numeral “13,” cobweb motifs, etc.”
