Missing The Governor on The Walking Dead? Exec Producers Drop Some Clues on His Return!“The Walking Dead” has been spending lots of quality time with the crew we know and love, but what about the big bad we love to hate: the loathsome Governor? Isn’t he supposed to be back this season? Exec producers Robert Kirkman and Scott Gimple recently spoke about that very topic…

“…It’s not that we don’t like that character; it’s just that we needed to give that character a break,” executive producer Robert Kirkman tells THR’s The Live Feed. “Going right back into that would seem like more retread of Season 3, and that’s the thing we don’t want to do.”

Instead, they’ve focused on setting the group up to be at its weakest point for when the eye-patched villain played by David Morrissey returns to exact revenge on Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira). “He was never supposed to die in Season 3; we always knew there was a bigger story with him, and taking a break from that story is going to make things more heightened when he comes back,” Kirkman explains. “…[I]t adds another layer of tension. We wouldn’t be able to do that if we move right into his story… [Plus,] we’re going to see a very different Governor when he does come back.”

“Different” as in more dangerous or more passive in rethinking his life? “The Governor is going to see quite a leap in who he is and what his motives are. The Governor that we saw at the end of Season 3 was this homicidal maniac who lost control of his town, and we haven’t seen him for a long time. He’s been stewing, and we may be seeing a very different Governor when we finally do catch up to him,” Kirkman says of the character’s eventual return. “…[T]he Governor layer will be thrown in to make things that much more deadly and dangerous [for the weakened survivors]. It’s going to be a really big, memorable moment in the show.”

Adds Gimple: “What the Governor has done weighs upon him; that is the first time he has done something like that. When the Governor comes back, it’s going to be in a very significant way but in a way that we significantly exploit the character and go even deeper into who he is. Because who the hell is he? He has his public face, he has his private face. We know a great deal about him, but we don’t know the truth. When all is said and done, is he the guy who enjoys being a leader and being the salvation to people? Is he this tortured guy who needs to stare at the heads of the men and women he’s killed? Which one is he?”

Short Film: Tony Morales’ Hada Will Creep You Out

Published

on

Here at Dread Central, we are always on the lookout to peep and share cool new horror shorts from around the web. Case in point, director Tony Morales’ Hada.

The short film was selected for 260 festivals and received 50 awards, and you can now check it out in its entirety below.

I watched it this past weekend and there were more than a few shots contained within that chilled my bones. All about those feet moving up onto the bed. Brr. That’s all I’ll say.

Actually, I’ll say a (tiny) bit more: Someone needs to give Morales a shot at one of the new Conjuring-universe films. I think he’d knock it out of the park.

Watch the flick and you’ll see what I mean.

Again, you can check out the short below and then after giving the film a viewing, make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below!

You can become a fan of the short film on Facebook HERE.

Synopsis:

Tonight Hada comes to visit Daniel because his last child tooth has fallen out. What Daniel doesn´t expect is that his worst enemy is the light.

Dread Central: How is the film coming along?

Rocky Gray: The film is now completed and we are getting the perks out to our Indiegogo backers. The backers and Death By Festival got to see the first cut of the film in October and they loved it so we’re very excited to get the film out to everyone else very soon.

DC: What can expect from this anthology?

RG: Expect to have a lot of Halloween themed fun. Each segment has its own flavor so the pacing and the look change throughout the film. With masked killers, vampires, scarecrows, tricksters and old hags there’s something for everyone.

DC: Will there be a sequel?

Sounds good to us. Thanks for chatting with us, Rocky!

The Duffer Brothers Have Begun Working on Stranger Things 3

Published

on

I wasn’t the world’s biggest fan of the first season of Netflix and The Duffer Brothers’ “Stranger Things” to tell you the truth. That said, I absolutely loved the second season (read our reviews HERE).

It is with this in mind that we are all looking forward to “Stranger Things 3”.

Recently Deadline reported that at Vulture Festival LA the Duffer Brothers, producer Shawn Levy, Finn Wolfhard, Paul Reiser, and Linnea Berthelsen talked about season two and teased season three.

“We are [in] very early days on season three, and we’re still figuring it out,” Ross Duffer said, before taking a beat, then adding: “I probably wasn’t supposed to say that. That’s not official; that wasn’t an official announcement — we’re just working on it, just for our own amusement… for fun!”

Whatever.

We all know at this point that there is going to be a “Stranger Things 3” and that The Duffer Brothers will one day begin working on it. Don’t worry so much, Ross Duffer.

After all, your brother already let us know that season three will begin after a time jump:

“Even if we wanted to hop into the action faster, we couldn’t,” says Matt Duffer. “Our kids are aging. We can only write and produce the show so fast. They’re going to be almost a year older by the time we start shooting season three. It provides certain challenges. You can’t start right after season two ended. It forces you to do a time jump. It’s a long way of saying that yeah, we’re going to do a time jump.”

What did you think of “Stranger Things 2”? Did you dig it more (or less) than season one? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on social media!

“Stranger Things 2” is currently streaming on Netflix.

Synopsis:
It’s 1984, and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana, are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down, but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.
