Exorcism movies are a sub-genre of horror that’s constantly being mined for new ideas, despite the lack of new perspective on the tired topic. William Friedkin’s definitive film on the subject landed over 40 years ago and has yet to face any serious competition, but could that be about to change? The latest entry into the niche hails from Mark Neveldine, whose forthcoming horror The Vatican Tapes tackles the perils of having one’s body invaded by a nasty demon.
In this case, that unfortunate circumstance is bestowed upon 27-year-old Angela Holmes, played by Olivia Dudley. A seemingly ordinary girl, she starts to realize that her very being causes those around her to either suffer from hideous injuries.

Yes, there is life in outer space — there’s even the capacity to be prejudiced about the other life around you.
That was the lesson to be gleaned from the Television Critics Association press tour panel for Syfy’s upcoming drama “The Expanse,” an adaptation of the book series by Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, who write under the collective pen name James S. A. Corey.
The series takes place in a future where Earthlings have colonized out to the asteroid belt, where they’ve evolved into distinct societies with their own specific strengths — and specific biases, the cast and »

A lot of new words and phrases being tossed about at today's TCA panel on Syfy's upcoming series The Expanse, set 200 years in the future: "Future noir" (from series star Thomas Jane), "planetism" (that's like racism but about conflicts between folks from different planets, from cast member Cas Anvar). Then we have "space opera," from pretty much everybody on the panel, which included Ep/showrunners Naren Shankar and Mark Fergus and actors Anvar, Jane, Dominique Tipper… »
