The descriptions detailing what Richard Lagravenese’s new ABC drama is about are a little messy and hard to follow, but I think any misunderstandings lie solely on my end because other people seem to find this project alluring. It’s been a long time since Katie Holmes starred on Dawnson’s Creek, but she has somehow been enticed into returning to television despite a movie career that ain’t nothing to scoff at. So whatever this untitled pilot is actually about, it must be pretty good if Holmes is getting onboard. Maybe I should meditate on this – sometimes meditating can open your mind up, allowing you to see things that were always there, which in this case seems to be the brilliance behind destroying somebody else’s marriage.
This pilot, which is set in New York City, tells the tale of the love and rivalry between two equally matched, »

Something very strange happened in the small village of New Bethlehem, a devout community kept under the tight reins of the town's vigilant Elders. Six girls born on the same day to different mothers. Perhaps a coincidence or, as most believe, a chilling omen of something yet to come. Now, on the eve of their 18th birthday, the young women are mysteriously disappearing one by one and feared dead. Terror has overtaken this quiet community. Could this be the work of a serial killer, »

An official one-sheet for Where the Devil Hides (formerly The Occult and The Devil's Rapture) has arrived, and it's just as creepy and subtle as the last bit of eye candy we brought you back in April of 2013. Really good stuff!
The film is heading into this year's Efm so hopefully we'll have some distro news soon.

It's been awhile since last we had a good horror/sci-fi hybrid flick, but given what we're hearing about the upcoming Animus, that could be exactly what's on the agenda. Read on for the first details and possible casting news.
The Thomas Konkle-written script fixes on space-journeying scientists who, on the way back from investigating some far-off moons, are hit by micrometeorites.
One of the scientists is infected, and it’s not long before another side of him comes out – threatening the family– killing the men, while dominating and impregnating the women. It’s up to the rest of the guys on the ship to kill the infected man – and thus, the monster within – before the evolved contagion makes it to Earth.
Commercials director Konkle is also directing. More as we get it!

Kellan Lutz ‘The Legend of Hercules’: New Summit release has 0% Rotten Tomatoes approval rating (photo: Gaia Weiss and shirtless Kellan Lutz in ‘The Legend of Hercules’) Starring Kellan Lutz, best known as the hunky and likable vampire Emmett in the Twilight movies, The Legend of Hercules opens today, January 10, 2014, in North America. That’s the good news for Kellan Lutz fans. Now, the bad news: The Legend of Hercules isn’t about to become the next Spartacus — or even the next Gladiator. “The only thing epic about The Legend of Hercules is what a failure it is,” writes Stephanie Merry in the Washington Post, while Newsday‘s Rafer Guzman’s complains that “this painfully feeble version of the strongman story fails on every level, from Lutz’s wooden acting to the styrofoam special effects.” In fact, out of 35 reviews, the Summit Entertainment / Lionsgate Pictures release has a 0% approval rating »
