Rumour: Negan cast in The Walking Dead

6 November 2015 10:43 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rumours surrounding who might play Negan in The Walking Dead have floated around the internet for quite some time; Kevin Durand and Jon Hamm have been said to be the alleged frontrunners, with Hamm even expressing an interest to work with Robert Kirkman earlier this year.

Now, this is simply speculation at the this point, but talk is circulating suggesting that Garrett Dillahunt – star of Justified and Deadwood – has been cast in the role, which stems from a post on Twitter where he revealed he’s busy reading Compendium Three of The Walking Dead comic.

Whilst this is no indication that he has actually been cast on the show, the general reaction is that he will play Negan and will show up some time in Season 6. But of course, take this with a »

Kevin Durand Talks The Strain Season 2

17 September 2015 9:57 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

As exterminator turned strigoi slayer Vasiliy Fet, Kevin Durand is easily a fan favorite cast member of FX's The Strain. Daily Dead recently took part in a conference call with the actor, who discussed humor, horror, and love on The Strain Season 2.

On Fet's unique connection with Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley):

Kevin Durand: Fet is a survivor and if he was on his own, I believe he’d still be alive. He’d be finding ways to survive, different places to go. He and Setrakian are so similar in that sense. He genuinely connects with the old fella, as I do with David [Bradley] in real life. He’s a smart guy, he’s pragmatic. Fet knows that Setrakian has over sixty years of knowledge that he’s been compiling, and he’s learning from him. Setrakian is so happy and pleased to get to pass down that knowledge as they forge ahead. »

After a logging company decimates an area of the forest, a rash of increasingly violent and unexplainable events transpires.

Review: Dark Was The Night

4 September 2015 1:49 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

There’s something incredibly powerful when genre films are elevated by great writing. As a fan of horror, there is no greater reward to being given a hell of a story in which you Care and sympathize for every character in front of you. It’s what sets certain horror films apart from typical slasher fare, and films like Jack Heller’s Dark Was The Night really show what can be accomplished with a solid script, great direction and performances that you don’t see in a lot of genre films these days.

A deeply emotional story following a sheriff that has lost his faith in himself after one of his children dies in an accident, Dark Was The Night does a great job of making you care about its characters, all of which inhabit a small town that for the most part, is haunted by a long-standing urban legend »

Holy cats, the Summer o’ Screams™  is rapidly rocketin’ towards a climax, and to that end I present the following epic length column to blow out the metric ton of fright flicks that have descended on the ol’ Crypt like a swarm of beastly bats… bats made out of shiny lil’ circles rather than the furry bits they are usually made of… anyway, here comes Daniel Xiii’s Blow-a-Thon!
