Ja from Mnpp here with a new round of "Beauty Vs. Beast" for us to play... this week's inspiration? It's the 54th birthday of one of my favorite actors, Scotsman slash raving lunatic Robert Carlyle. Alright yes he's (probably) just acting the "raving lunatic" part... over and over again... so well... by all accounts he's a very nice gentleman. Think how sweet he seemed romancing Linus Roache in Priest! That was the first place I ever saw him - it was two years later where he'd cement the scary status he'd carry on to roles in Ravenous and 28 Weeks Later (which I actually prefer to the original) with the one and only terror that was Begbie in Danny Boyle's 1996 phenom Trainspotting.
Did I say "one and only"? Make that twice and doubly - now that Ewan and Danny have finally made up following DiCaprio-Gate (Boyle cast Leo over Ewan in The Beach, »
Once Upon a Time, Season 3, Episode 16, “It’s Not Easy Being Green
Written by Andrew Chambliss
Directed by Mario Van Peebles
Season 3, Episode 17, “The Jolly Roger”
Written by David H. Goodman
Directed by Ernest Dickerson
Airs Sundays at 8pm Est on ABC
The first half of season three of Once Upon a Time was very shaky. Most of it left us agitated, frustrated, and downright bored. However after the very long hiatus, the writers came back rejuvenated and fighting fresh and the first handful of episodes back have been packed with the magic that Once featured in its first season. Episodes 16 and 17 are no different. Both of them have us biting our fingers in suspense and laughing out loud.
In “It’s Not Easy Being Green” we are finally treated to a backstory for Zelena. The episode gives great in-depth detail about Zelena, showing why is the way she is. »

Howdy fright fiends! All of us here at Icons of Fright are pretty hardcore when it comes to being soundtrack fanatics. Whether it be Rob or Justin blasting away with their Death Waltz vinyl, or little ol’ me (Jerry), sorting through my insane amount of iTunes soundtracks or Mondo vinyl collection, the fact is that we’re constantly in adoration of all things music, especially when the tunes are from our favorite fright films. Since this whole month of April is one big celebration of our ten year anniversary, and we wanted to make things really fun, we decided that instead of just writing an article about Our favorite soundtracks, we would reach out to our friends and colleagues and ask them to join up and contribute to this one. So, without further ado, we bring you Icons and Friends: Our Favorite Genre Film Scores!

Warning: We're about to address some major spoilers that happened on this Sunday's episode of Once Upon a Time. If you have not watched the episode, or don't want to know what's coming up next. Click your magic slippers together and get the heck out of here! Sunday's heartbreaking episode of Once Upon a Time has brought forth a whole lot of tears from their magical fandom. In a desperate attempt to resurrect his father Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) from the afterlife, Neal (Michael Raymond-James) sacrificed his own life to take Rumple's place.

Once Upon A Time, Season 3, Episode 15: “Quiet Minds”
Written by Kalinda Vazquez
Directed by Eagle Egilsson
Airs Sundays at 8pm (Et) on ABC
Just when we think that Once Upon a Time has forgotten about our beloved Belle, the writers hit us with an episode like “Quiet Minds”. While Belle does not have much of a role in the present day storyline, it is nice to see her and Neal popping up in the past.
Emilie de Ravin has always been a nice addition to the cast and she knows how to hold her own against the big gun characters. She proved that when she first debuted back in the first season of Once Upon a Time. It’s clear that she is glad to be given something to do here and that something just happens to be teaming up with Neal- the two of them are convinced that »

A week after Once Upon a Time resurrected one dead character, another paid the ultimate price.
On Sunday's episode, Neal (Michael Raymond-James) suddenly reappears in town with a mysterious mark on his hand. Unaware of the past year, Neal is distraught to hear that Henry (Jared Gilmore) doesn't remember anything about him. His arrival is lucky for his fellow fairy-tale characters, who have all been attempting to find his father Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) to no avail.

A new fairytale character is introduced in this week's suspenseful episode of Once Upon A Time...
This review contains spoilers.
3.14 The Tower
“Scary” isn’t the right word to describe this horror-inspired episode, but “suspenseful” certainly is. Despite a flimsy plotline and an uninteresting Ringwraith/Dementor wannabe hanging around, the episode conjures up some impressively tense scenes.
It’s a Charming-centric episode, focusing on his fear of fathering another child and screwing up as a dad, like he feels he did with Emma. For once Charming isn’t completely infuriating; fears springing from self-doubt are easy to sympathize with.
In flashbacks, Charming is advised by resident therapist Robin Hood to seek out Nightroot, which will cure his fear. Charming finds the root, and also a tower where Rapunzel is being kept by a witch. As I said last week, I am thrilled that Rapunzel is a person of colour, »
It’s just a few months now until Jack Bauer will return to television screens after a four year absence in 24: Live Another Day, a miniseries continuation of the show that aired for eight seasons across a nine year period on the Fox network. Here, the former CTU (Counter Terrorist Unit) agent will be joined in a London-set story by the ever-dependent Chloe O’Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub), his former love Audrey Raines (Kim Raver), her father, Secretary of Defence turned President James Heller (William Devane) and a collection of new characters played by the likes of Chuck’s Yvonne Strahovski, Game of Thrones’ Michelle Fairley, Colin Salmon and even Stephen Fry as the Prime Minister.
Whilst this new iteration will drop the series’ most notable quirk – events being shown in real time over a twenty four hour period – it will presumably be as manic and unpredictable as its predecessor, »

Once Upon A Time is in danger of repeating itself one too many times. Here's Kylie's review of Witch Hunt...
This review contains spoilers.
3.13 Witch Hunt
Once Upon A Time is full of 'surprises' tonight.
“Surprise” #1: Regina and the Wicked Witch Zelena are sisters. Which nobody saw coming at all because none of the characters on this show are ever secretly related.
“Surprise: #2: Rumple is alive! Which is completely shocking because it would have been completely logical for them to kill off their most interesting and popular character midway through season three, and as we all know I have not been predicting his return ever since he died. (Granted, that happened all of two episodes ago. Which shows how long this show can last without him.)
Number two is easy to forgive because, well, Rumple’s back, and who doesn’t want that? »
After having put their differences aside to work together and save the day, the fairy tale characters from the ABC drama series Once Upon a Time are now facing a new threat, in the form of the Wicked Witch of the West (Rebecca Mader). With Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) having successfully jogged Emma Swan’s (Jennifer Morrison) memory, which had been wiped clean in order to save the residents of Storybrooke, she must once again help her fairy tale family and friends out of a desperate situation. The show also stars Ginnifer Goodwin, Lana Parrilla, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Michael Raymond-James, Jared S. Gilmore and Robert Carlyle. During this recent interview to discuss what’s to come for the remainder of this season, showrunners Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis talked about why the Wicked Witch wants vengeance, how much we’ll learn about her backstory, what type of »

When I reviewed Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow Ultimate Edition, I stated that while it wasn’t the 3D Castlevania game I had been waiting for, it was a serviceable title. Not great, definitely not horrible, but decidedly something worth playing for a fan of the franchise. As such, I was pretty stoked when I found out I would be the one reviewing Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, thinking that they may have cleaned up the glaring faults and finally found a way to offer what I was looking for. I couldn’t wait for the return of Dracula, and to see where this storyline ended up. However, now that I’ve wrapped up my time with the game, I can safely say that Dracula isn’t the only thing that sucks here.
I can save everyone a bit of time here by making a very simple statement: If you didn’t »

Bon appétit! It is the chef, or the cook if you will, that makes all the magic happen with the food we eat. The right chef can take your ordinary meal and make it extraordinary… or is that Hamburger Helper? Anyway, here are the Top 9 Sinister Chefs in horror.
With the release of Serving Up Richard (review), we decided to dig down deep and remember some of our favorite chefs and cooks throughout the history of horror.
Whether they be chefs of the gourmet variety, or they just threw something (like a boiling bunny) on the stove, the following list of ne'er-do-wells all know their way around a kitchen. And that's one of the reasons why we love them.
As always, we'll give you a few honorable mentions to get things going. Glenn Close's previously referenced character, Alex Forrest, was perhaps not a true chef, but she sure knew »

Emma Thompson has joined the cast of The Long Midnight of Barney Thomson.
The dark comedy follows Scottish barber Barney Thomson, who stumbles into the world of serial murder through a series of accidental events, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Saving Mr Banks actress will play Barney's mother, while Robert Carlyle stars as Barney. The film marks Carlyle's directorial debut.
Thompson received major awards nominations for her role in Saving Mr Banks but fell short of securing an Oscar nod.
Last month, Meryl Streep revealed that she wrote Thompson a "long email" after she was overlooked at the Oscars.
"I was really shocked. And I wrote her a long, heartfelt email saying how bad I felt," Streep said.
Watch the trailer for Saving Mr »
Robert Carlyle himself will take the title role, starring as a troubled Scottish barber who suddenly finds himself wrapped up in a serial murder. The screenplay is adapted from a series of novels by author Douglas Lindsay, written by Richard Cowan and Colin McLaren.
Emma Thompson will play Robert Carlyle's mother, who cheerfully emasculates him at every turn as his darkest fantasies suddenly become a reality. Ray Winstone and Ewen Bremner are also attached to co-star in supporting roles.
The Long Midnight of Barney Thomson is currently being shopped by Myriad at the European Film Market in Berlin. The film itself will be a Canadian/U.K. co-production, and will begin filming later this year under producers John G. Lenic and Kaleena Kiff through their Trinity Works Entertainment banner. »
An adaptation of Douglas Lindsay's The Long Midnight of Barney Thomson (the first book in his "Barney Thomson" series) is on the way to the big screen, Variety reports. Emma Thompson, who recently starred in Saving Mr. Banks , will headline opposite Robert Carlyle ( Trainspotting ), who will also be using the project to mark his directorial debut. Richard Cowan and Colin McLaren are providing the adapted screenplay for the comedy thriller, which will feature Carlyle as the titular Thomson, a Scottish barber who haplessly stumbles into a new life as a serial killer. Thompson, then, will play the character's vicious mother. The project, which could foreseeably, like the books, launch a franchise, will also feature roles for Ewen Bremner and Ray Winstone. (Photo »
