‘House by the Lake’ Review

Stars: James Callis, Anne Dudek, Amiah Miller, Natasha Bassett, Michael Bowen | Written by Josh Burnell | Directed by Adam Gierasch

Despite his output being less than prolific, I’ve been a huge fan of director Adam Gierasch for years – ever since I saw Autopsy and his stellar remake of Night of the Demons (one of the “good” remakes, even though the original is a stone-cold classic). House by the Lake is only his third feature since those films, though he was a part of the portmanteau Tales of Halloween in 2015. Surprisingly, unlike the rest of his oeuvre this film is the first Gierasch has directed that he hasn’t written – and it shows. House by the Lake is unlike any of his other films; feeling very much like a low-budget family drama instead of the usual balls to the wall horror Gierasch is associated with.

Castlevania season 2 is a go! The Belmont clan's battle against Dracula will continue, across eight more episode...

While Netflix's recent discovery that you can actually cancel a show has left some fans worrying that their favorite new Netflix series may be a one and done proposition, those who have already learned to love Netflix's Castlevania will be thrilled to learn this: the streaming service has already greenlit the show's second season.

Count Dracula Looms Over Creepy New Action Shots For Netflix’s Castlevania Series

Few would argue that July 7th belongs to Spider-Man: Homecoming, but over on Netflix, there’s another high-profile release ready to take flight, and it ought to appeal to those old-school gamers pining for some fantastical nostalgia.

Its name? Castlevania, a four-part animated series conceived by Warren Ellis, Kevin Kolde, Fred Seibert, and Dredd producer Adi Shankar. Split across two seasons – the second and seemingly conclusive chapter will air via Netflix in 2018 – Castlevania stays true to the Konami classic in that it follows the disgraced Belmont clan as they rise up against Count Dracula in order to bring peace to Transylvania.

Netflix’s Castlevania Series Lifts The Curtain On Its Impressive Voice Cast

It’s rather fitting that Netflix’s latest Castlevania-related announcement, one which involves the show’s starry voice cast, comes by way of Dracula himself – or at least the actor on board to play the supernatural menace.

As you’ll see from the video above, that task has fallen at the feet of Graham McTavish (Outlander, The Hobbit), who stands alongside the show’s producer and all-around figurehead, Adi Shankar (Dredd).

Even if you only have a passing interest in Konami’s video game classic, you’ll know that Castlevania largely centers on the Belmont clan and their seemingly never-ending quest to defeat Count Dracula and bring a sense of peace to Transylvania and the rest of Eastern Europe. Leading that revolt against Vlad Dracula Tepe and his wicked ways is Richard Armitage. He’ll voice vampire hunter Trevor Belmont in Netflix’s adaptation, which is a major coup

Joined by actor Graham McTavish, who will be voicing Dracula in the series, the duo announced a full cast that includes Richard Armitage (Trevor Belmont), and James Callis (Alucard). Check out the video below for the full announcement…

Quite an impressive cast for Netflix’s first dip into the video game realm. Both Graham McTavish and Richard Armitage had sizeable parts in The Hobbit trilogy, with McTavish having a history of lending his voice to video games (The Order: 1886); Armitage recently portrayed “The Great Red DragonFrancis Dolarhyde in the last season of NBC’s Hannibal to chilling effect. You may also recall James Callis’ incredible performance as Gaius Baltar in Syfy’s hit series Battlestar Galactica. Rounding out the cast are Alejandra Reynoso (Sypha), Emily Swallow (Lisa Tepes), Matt Frewer
