From Dusk Till Dawn’s Pulp Origins Explored in a New Featurette

Posted by Debi Moore on August 28, 2015

“From Dusk Till Dawn” made my list of the Top 10 horror TV shows you should be watching, and according to Ted’s Season 2 preview, things are really kicking into high gear in next week’s Episode 2.02, “In a Dark Time.”

If you’re curious about some of the series’ influences, then check out this new featurette in which executive producer/showrunner Carlos Coto discusses its “pulp” origins.  In the below video Coto explains how the show’s foundation creates an actual crime drama.

“From Dusk Till Dawn” Episode 2.02 – “In a Dark Time” (airs 9/1/15)
Seth (D.J. Cotrona) and Kate (Madison Davenport) stage a heist, while Gonzalez (Jesse Garcia) endures frightening visions that lead to a grisly discovery. Back at the Twister, Malvado’s (Esai Morales) plans are set into motion by Carlos’ (Wilmer Valderrama) emergence from the labyrinth.

We don’t have a preview of the upcoming ep to share yet so how about an inside look at Episode 2.01, “Opening Night”?

Ultimate Jason Voorhees Action Figure Slashes NECA to Pieces

Posted by John Squires on August 28, 2015

Earlier this year at the San Diego Comic-Con, NECA provided us with a sneak peek of their upcoming Ultimate Jason Voorhees action figure, based on his look in Jason Lives. All they had to show off was an unpainted prototype at the time, but now a full gallery has been unveiled. Dig in!

To commemorate the 30th anniversary of Friday the 13th Part 6, NECA presents the definitive collector’s version of Jason as he appeared in the 1986 film. This deluxe 7″ scale action figure features a gruesome, freshly unearthed sculpt and over 25 points of articulation.

The figure is loaded with accessories, including a removable mask, a machete and a knife that both fit into sheaths on his belt, the fence post that reanimated him, and his tombstone.

Shipping in late December, Ultimate Jason is packaged in a collector-friendly Deluxe 30th Anniversary window box.

Posted by Debi Moore on August 28, 2015

It may not generate the attention or ratings that “The Walking Dead” and its progeny do, but Syfy’s “Z Nation” is a helluva lot of fun, and we’ll be tuning in for sure when Season 2 kicks off on September 11th.  If you plan to be there as well, here’s a new trailer for the show that will help you get ready… with a song!

Excited for S2 but a little rusty as to what exactly went down in S1?  Then be sure to scroll down below the trailer for a quick recap.

Synopsis:
“Z Nation” starts three years after the zombie virus has gutted the country. A team of everyday heroes must transport the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab waits for his blood. Although the antibodies he carries are the world’s last, best hope for a vaccine, he hides a dark secret that threatens them all. With humankind’s survival at stake, the ragtag band embarks on a journey of survival across three thousand miles of rusted-out post-apocalyptic America.

Fear the Walking Dead Stand-Alone Special to be a Flight of the Living Dead

Posted by Steve Barton on August 28, 2015

With “Fear the Walking Dead” smashing a multitude of cable records it’s not surprising that AMC is looking to bring more zombie related programming to the forefront. According to Entertainment Weekly AMC is producing a half-hour special that will tell a stand-alone story following a group of passengers facing a walker attack on an airline while in flight.

One character who survives that encounter will then join the cast of “Fear the Walking Dead” in season 2. Previously, AMC has had a stand-alone “The Walking Dead” online web series, but the network never used such content to introduce a new character before they joined the show.

The airline attack story will debut online, and will unfold this in chapters that will air during “The Walking Dead”’s on-air telecasts. In other words: You’re watching “The Walking Dead,” AMC cuts to commercial break, then you get a chapter in the as-yet-untitled stand-alone airline attack drama.

Beyond that, details are scarce. Stay tuned.

“Fear the Walking Dead” Episode 1.02 – “So Close, Yet So Far” (airs 8/30/15)
While Madison (Kim Dickens) struggles to keep Nick (Frank Dillane) from crippling withdrawal, Travis (Cliff Curtis) ventures out to find his son (Lorenzo James Henrie) before the city of Los Angeles falls.

Stay up-to-date on all things walker-related by visiting “Fear the Walking Dead” on Facebook and “Fear the Walking Dead” on AMC.com.

Become Blood Brothers With Michael B. Jordan

Posted by Steve Barton on August 28, 2015

Though his stint in The Fantastic Four as The Human Torch fizzled, star Michael B. Jordan is still pretty hot in Hollywood and is ready to tackle yet another comic franchise.

According to The Tracking Board, Jordan’s in talks to nab the role of Tree, one of the key leads in the big screen adaptation of the horror comic Blood Brothers for MGM. The story follows two blood-sucking best friends whose relationship enters a crisis.

The pic’s based on the Dark Horse comic series of the same name written by Hit List, Black List, and Young and Hungry List alums Mike Gagerman and Andrew Waller. Mike Richardson of Dark Horse Entertainment is producing the action/comedy, with Keith Goldberg overseeing. Matt Dines, Adam Rosenberg, and Jonathan Glickman are overseeing for the studio.

Men in Black 3 scribe Etan Cohen recently took a crack at the script, as well as Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly before him. However, sources now confirm that the studio is looking for a new writer/director to approach the project with a more grounded vision, tonally in line with buddy films like Lethal Weapon and 48 Hours.

Pitched as Ghostbusters meets Men in Black, the story follows best friends Nick and Tree, two vampires that have been inseparable party fiends for over a thousand years. Together they’ve smoked opium with Genghis Khan, had orgies in Michelangelo’s studio, and even fronted a death metal band.

Now, after centuries together, a mid-life crisis threatens to send them on their separate ways. That is, until, a megalomaniac with an apocalypse fetish threatens to end the human race, forcing the once BFFs to stick together to save the world.

Clip From British TV Adaptation of Jekyll and Hyde

Posted by David Gelmini on August 28, 2015

An action packed clip from the new British ITV adaptation of Jekyll and Hyde has surfaced, have a look below.

Set in 1930s London, the ten episode series will focus on the grandson of the original Doctor Jekyll, who has clearly inherited the curse.

ITV is one of the biggest TV networks in the UK, and is mostly known for trashy X-Factor style reality TV, so it’s certainly refreshing to see them tackle something truly fresh and creative.

All episodes are directed by Colin Teague, known for Being Human, and the series stars Richard E. Grant, Tom Bateman and Stephanie Hyam, and will premier on British TV in October. No word yet on a US broadcast.
