Leerhsen Talks Living Hell



Erica LeerhsenWhile visiting the set of Fox’s upcoming direct-to-DVD sequel Wrong Turn 2 (full set report is on its way … believe me, it’s better than you think), I got to chatting with star Erica Leerhsen, whom you may recall from Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 or, cooler than that, 2003’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake.

While we were there to discuss Wrong Turn 2, she mentioned that she just finished up work on Richard Jeffries’ Living Hell, one of the set of films being produced by Dark Lot Entertainment and Media 8. Erica was kind enough to discuss her character in the film as well as divulge some minor plot points I had not heard before:

“My character is the one responsible for letting this thing out, so she gets a lot of Sigourney Weaver from Alien moments,” she told me. Erica plays Carrie Freeborn, a military wife who is unexpectedly given the hero role when a deadly organism is unleashed on a military base. “She starts the whole thing and is not your typical action hero, and then she has to try and stop it.”

“[Co-star Jonathan Schaech] knows that we shouldn’t open this box that we’re going to open, and he comes to warn us. His father is the one who created this experiment and it’s implanted in his character’s body, so he’s got a natural immunity to this creature.” She explains, “He’s this very tortured guy, but my character is not; she’s just forced into this situation. She ends up leading him out of his pain in a way. There’s a really well written scene towards the end with these two characters connecting, which ends in a very cool blood smearing moment. I can’t wait to see how that comes out. It should be very sexy/scary, which is always a good combination!”

Indeed it is, especially when that sexiness is coming from Leerhsen, who looks just as good covered in blood as not. We’ll have more on both Wrong Turn 2 and Living Hell in the coming weeks, so don’t move!

AMC Reveals When The Walking Dead’s Last Stand Will Begin



Last night “The Walking Dead” took one of its biggest detours yet from the storyline of the comics on which the series is based, but you won’t find any spoilers here aside for a peek at the show’s midseason return trailer.  In addition to the video, we have confirmation of when Episode 8.09 will be airing… read on for the details of when our survivors’ last stand begins!

Season 8 of “The Walking Dead” resumes on Sunday, February 25th, at 9/8c.  While you wait, if you’re not totally caught up, you can binge all the latest episodes on AMC.com or the AMC app.

Season 8 Synopsis:
Last season Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his group of survivors were confronted with their deadliest challenge yet. With the comfort of Alexandria, they let their guard down, only to be reminded how brutal the world they live in can be.

Feeling powerless under Negan’s (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) rules and demands, Rick advocated the group play along. But seeing that Negan couldn’t be reasoned with, Rick began rallying together other communities affected by the Saviors. And with the support of the Hilltop and Kingdom, they finally have enough fire power to contest the Saviors.

This season Rick brings “All Out War” to Negan and his forces. The Saviors are larger, better-equipped, and ruthless — but Rick and the unified communities are fighting for the promise of a brighter future. The battle lines are drawn as they launch into a kinetic, action-packed offensive.

Up until now, survival has been the focus of Rick and our group, but it’s not enough. They have to fight to take back their freedom so that they can live. So that they can rebuild. As with any battle, there will be losses. Casualties. But with Rick leading the Alexandrian forces, Maggie (Lauren Cohan) leading the Hilltop, and King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) leading the Kingdom — Negan and the Saviors’ grip on this world may finally be coming to an end.
