"You've got the body…I've got the brains." That was the scene that did it for me. We've all got our favorite Freddy Krueger moment ... Nancy in the bathtub, Johnny Depp getting sucked into the bed, the cockroach transformation scene or even "Welcome to prime time, bitch!". But the one that stuck with me was Krueger peeling back the top of his head, revealing a pulsing brain, while reciting that line to a screaming Jesse in A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge.
Next week the major broadcast networks will officially present their fall schedules. ABC today announced its pick-ups and cancellations. The news is bad for alien invaders and Gothic authors. The news is good, however, for fairy tales and the Paranormal Activity guy.
Way back when the original "V" aired on television, the aliens revealed themselves to look like glorified Sleestaks from "The Land of the Lost". My, oh my ... how things have changed!
The seventh installment of the Foycast has arrived. It really ought to be labled as Foycast 7.5 since this is a second take. On top of that, the original plan was to do a new Dinner For Fiends, only to have it turned into an impromptu Foycast at the last moment. For an hour long show with no prepared topic, somehow Uncle Creepy and I managed to stutter and stammer our way through it and hit a myriad of subjects in the process.
ABC just announced its new programming for the fall schedule, as well as a few mid-season replacement series for early 2010. Three of these new shows may be of interest to genre fans: "Eastwick" (or as I have already dubbed it, "Desperate Housewitches"), Happy Town ("Northern Exposure" meets "Twin Peaks"), and the jumpsuit-less remake of "V". Have a look at the promo trailers for all three.
For some reason ABC is again handing out the orders for a new look at the “V” series from the mid-80’s, which is news we last reported on back in October. The network has now given a “pilot order” to the new version, penned by Scott Peters, according to THR.
Yeah, yeah, I guess you could say that “V” is about as sci-fi as you can get, but ask anyone who watched the original mini-series on TV when they were a kid, like I did, and you’ll understand why it’s got horror cred. Fucking freaky lizard people, man!
