#SDCC14: Hannibal Season 7So this was a pretty exciting, albeit spoiler-y, panel. If you’re one to worry about that, here’s your warning. Otherwise showrunner Bryan Fuller had much to tease with respect to “Hannibal” Season 7.

Thomas Harris purists such as myself were a little dismayed this past season when it looked like one of our favorite characters, Dr. Frederick Chilton (Raúl Esparza) had been prematurely snuffed out. Turns out that we needn’t have worried, since Esparaza made a surprise appearance on this year’s SDCC “Hannibal” panel to confirm his return.

“By the end of next season, I expect to have an eyepatch, a hump, and a parrot,” he said. “I can’t believe how much people fell in love with Chilton this season…I love playing the part because he’s a total douchebag.”

On the topic of other returning characters, Fuller confirmed that we’d see Eddie Izzard’s Abel Gideon once more, but only in a flashback. Makes sense, considering his ultimate fate this season.

Fuller also went on to say that season 7 will pick up one year after the bloodbath that was season 2’s finale. This will give the surviving characters a chance to return in full, while allowing Dr. Lecter and Bedelia to be settled. As for their relocation locale? Fuller confirms that season 7’s episodes will be named for Italian cuisine. None too surprising, considering this season will, in part, be based on Harris’ Hannibal novel.

Speaking of that novel, fans can expect Inspector Pazzi to show up in episode 2, while we’ll be seeing Francis Dolarhyde at some point in the season as well (to set up the fourth season, which will be an adaptation of Red Dragon).

As for the upcoming season’s structure, “We are on track with the original plan with the one exception of condensing what was to have been season 7 and season 4 all into one season now,” Fuller told Deadline. “So, the first half of the season will have its finale that reaches a climax and wraps up that story in a great way, and then we start a new story, and then that will have its own climax at the end of the season. Two separate stories that’ll have two finales and so you get two seasons for the price of one.”

“The entire first half of the season is relatively FBI-light. It’s all about the pursuit of Hannibal,” Fuller said. We’re not expected to know who survived season 2’s finale right off, and Fuller admits that the time jump allows the show to create some additional uncertainty around the fates of our beloved characters.

There has been no additional movement with respect to securing the rights to Clarice Starling (from MGM), though Fuller confirmed they are still fighting the good fight.

“Hannibal’s” season 2 home video package will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD on September 16th and will include audio commentary with cast and crew on select episodes, a feature-length documentary on the making of episode 205, deleted scenes, and more.

Ryan Schifrin’s Abominable Gets a Sasquatch-Sized Blu-Ray

Published

on

A recent scientific study concluded that since the year 2000 there have 4,374,139 killer Bigfoot movies. 2006’s Abominable is one of the better Sasquatch-ploitation flicks of the era. Now this creature feature is getting a collector’s edition blu-ray complete with a brand new cut of the gruesome flick.

MVD Rewind Collection has announced they’re planning a special edition of Ryan Schifrin’s gory Hitchcock-influenced Bigfoot flick Abominable, which cast Matt McCoy as a wheelchair bound man who begins Rear Window-ing a psycho Sasquatch terrorizing his hot-blooded cabin neighbors that then turns his big foot towards him. Lance Henriksen, Dee Wallace, Jeffrey Combs, Tiffany Shepis, Haley Joel, Karin Anna Cheung, and Paul Gleason co-star.

It has been sighted 42,000 times in 68 countries, a vicious creature of myth and legend called Sasquatch, Yeti, and perhaps most infamously, Bigfoot. It’s been hunted it for years. But what happens when it decides to hunt us?



After recovering from a horrific accident, paraplegic Preston Rogers (Matt McCoy) moves back into the remote cabin where he and his now-deceased wife once lived. When his new neighbor Karen, is attacked by a gigantic creature, Rogers contacts the local authorities. But after the police and those around him dismiss Rogers as a delusional widower, he sets out to stop the abominable creature himself.

This won’t be your typical collector’s edition as not only will be getting a new high definition transfer of the film originally shot on 35mm, this will also include an all-new cut of the film with improved CGI-effects overseen by filmmaker Schifrin and editor Chris Conlee with enhanced color timing and correction.

Horror Retro Caps Boasts Hats Featuring The Lamp, The Video Dead, Rosemary’s Killer and more!

Published

on

Yesterday I was stumbling around on Instagram and I came across this killer account called @horrorretrocaps. They make horror movie-themed hats and I felt the need to share their work with you guys today.

It’s not so much the hats (which are cool), or the quality of the product (which looks sound as a pound) but it is the obvious love of horror by the guys behind the scenes that gets me all warm and fuzzy.

I mean sure there are products like A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. But they also have hats celebrating such classics as The Outing, The Lamp (hell, yeah!), The Gate, Zombie Lake, and The Video Dead.

Nice!

On top of that, the product that sealed the deal for me was their Rosemary’s Killer hat. As some of you might know, Rosemary’s Killer is the alternate title of Joseph Zito’s underrated slasher The Prowler. That alone just earned them horror-cred for days.

You can check out some of their choice caps below and then head on over to their account to purchase some product: @horrorretrocaps.

All caps are $15 plus $4 shipping in the U.S., and he also takes requests for $20.

Enjoy!

Jurassic Park T-Rex Stomps Through Ready Player One Trailer #3

Published

on

Is that the f*cking T-Rex!?

It was only earlier this week that we brought you guys the new “pure 80’s nostalgia” poster (to the right) for Steven Spielberg’s new action-adventure film Ready Player One.

And if all the promotional materials we have seen thus far haven’t done anything to raise your interest in the film (including trailers which featured Freddy Krueger, Chucky, Christine, and King Kong) then today’s new might not help matters much.

But all the same today we have a new trailer which features the mighty T-Rex from Spielberg’s own Jurassic Park and a bunch of new character posters for good measure.

I’m just going to come right out and say that as impressed as I am with the trailers for this film, I can’t help but feel someone watched theImaginationland episode of “South Park” and thought, “Mother of God… call Steven Speilberg!”

You can check out the character posters and the new trailer below and then let us know what you think of the film thus far.

Ready Player One is directed by Steven Spielberg from a script by Zak Penn and Ernest Cline, based on the novel by Cline. The film stars Tye Sheridan, Mark Rylance, Olivia Cooke, Simon Pegg, and Ben Mendelsohn.

The film hits theaters March 29, 2018.

Synopsis:

When the creator of an MMO called the Oasis dies, he releases a video in which he challenges all Oasis users to find his Easter Egg, which will give the finder his fortune. Wade Watts finds the first clue and starts a race for the Egg.
