Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller is reuniting with NBC to resurrect the anthology series Amazing Stories, with Entertainment Weekly revealing that Fuller is writing and executive producing a pilot for an hourlong weekly anthology series telling fantastic, strange and supernatural stories.
Created by Steven Spielberg, Amazing Stories originally ran on NBC between 1985 and 1987, with 45 episodes in total across two seasons. Directors who contributed to the show included Spielberg, Joe Dante, Martin Scorsese, Clint Eastwood, Robert Zemeckis, Tobe Hooper, Irvin Kerschner and Tom Holland.

Though we just said goodbye to his latest stylish televisual baby with the cancellation of Hannibal, writer/producer Bryan Fuller is busier than ever, currently leading the writers’ room for the HBO adaptation of Neil Gaiman's American Gods at Us cable channel Starz. And now he’s added another gig, overseeing the revival of anthology TV series Amazing Stories. Spearheaded by Steven Spielberg back in 1985, the show was bursting with talent beyond the main man himself, providing platforms for the likes of Brad Bird, Sid Caesar, Harvey Keitel, Robert Zemeckis, Jon Cryer, Joe Dante, Tom Holland, Irvin Kershner and more. It featured a mixture of genres and ideas with half-hour stories narrated by different performers. But through it burned brightly, it only lasted through its initial two-season commitment, though picked up a handful of awards along the way.If anyone can do something new and interesting with the idea, »
Here's your daily dose of an indie film, web series, TV pilot, what-have-you in progress -- at the end of the week, you'll have the chance to vote for your favorite. In the meantime: Is this a project you’d want to see? Tell us in the comments. Frank & Zed Logline: Blood, Guts, & Felt. Frank & Zed must hack and chomp their way through the local villagers bent on killing them. From Puppetcore Films, "Frank & Zed" is perhaps the world's first all-puppet monster movie packed with detail, gore, and fire-breathing puppets. Elevator Pitch: Frank & Zed must team up to survive a mob of bloodthirsty villagers storming their castle. They’re outnumbered, out axed, and falling apart - but monsters don’t go down without a fight. Could this be the next cult classic? Director Tom Holland ("Child’s Play," "Fright Night") thinks so, saying “'Frank & Zed' reminds us that horror can »
After months of speculation that the new Spider-Man stand-alone might swerve the inevitable trajectory and focus on Miles Morales rather than Peter Parker, Marvel and Sony deferred to type, casting Tom Holland for the latest attempt at Parker.
But that doesn’t mean it’s the end of the road for Morales, necessarily. When Yahoo! UK asked director Jon Watts whether fans ever got close to seeing him in the new stand-alone as the lead character, he was oddly evasive:
“I can’t talk about that, because, you know, that will reveal too much. We’re still writing the story…we haven’t finished all the way through the story yet, so who knows.”
Don’t take that as a confirmation obviously, but crucially it’s not a denial either. There have been some rumours that Morales will be brought into the universe alongside Parker for a multiple Spider-Man vehicle, »

Last year, when we first began planning out what we wanted to do with Deadly Magazine, the very first thing I put on our editorial calendar was a celebration of Tom Holland’s Fright Night so that I could pay tribute to one of my very favorite films of all time in honor of its 30th anniversary.
Sometimes a movie comes along and changes your life and, for me, that film was Fright Night. Growing up as a horror fan, I often felt like the kid that was often misunderstood and so when I discovered Holland’s directorial debut on VHS in 1986, it had a profound impact on me because deep down, I was Charley Brewster. I was also a kid being raised by a single mom, that had a profound love of horror movies and a genuine affection for the hosts who brought them into my home week in and week out. »

A look back at Fright Night It’s a tall order to ask that a film that speaks to horror fans at an intelligent level also embraces its nostalgia factor and manages some genuinely creepy moments. Many try to do it but few succeed like Tom Holland’s Fright Night does. Released in the mid-80s when franchises…

Thirty years ago, a teenager named Charley Brewster peered outside his bedroom window and glimpsed the murderous acts of the new neck-chomper next door, Jerry Dandrige. Fright Rags is celebrating Charley, Jerry, and horror host extraordinaire, Peter Vincent, with a new Fright Night shirt.
Featuring Charley and Peter armed and ready to do battle with Jerry, who is pictured in full vamp mode, against a backdrop of Jerry's Victorian house and the swirling cloud reconstruction of Amy Peterson's impossibly wide grin, this shirt gorgeously captures the people and moments from Tom Holland's directorial debut that have stayed with fans for three decades.
Available as a T-shirt, hoodie, and baseball tee, Fright Rags' "Who's It Gonna Be Tonight" Fright Night shirt is now available to pre-order for $27.00 as a T-shirt, $47.00 as a hoodie, and $37.00 as a baseball tee. The shirts are expected to ship out in mid-September. To learn more, »

Tom Holland is a master of horror (he even directed the Masters of Horror installment We All Scream for Ice Cream) in the truest sense. With treasures like Fright Night Childs Play and Thinner under his belt hes firmly established himself a genre powerhouse. Fright Night is the mans most beloved feature which makes it more fitting that he may direct a new vamp tale Fresh Blood. His first feature length film in nearly 20 years the project isnt a go yet but Holland is in the mix and thats a good thing. »

The problem with found footage movies is sometimes, instead of pulling the audience closer into the action, we end up thinking that the person behind the camera is just an idiot who should have dropped it and run for his life when things got dangerous. However their are rare occassions where you can just enjoy being taken along for the ride… As is the case with Digging Up the Marrow.
Playing himself Adam Green films a documentary about a man, William Dekker (Ray Wise) who contacts him promising proof of the existence of monsters in the world. Taking Will Barratt along with him as camera man he interviews Dekker about the claims, agreeing to investigate the claims. »

Originally conceived and made as a 9-episode web series for the now defunct FearNet, Tom Holland’s Twisted Tales has been released on to DVD as yet another horror anthology rather than TV show – running a huge 144 minutes – encompassing the entire series in one “movie”; and an inconsistent movie at that.
Some would say that you have to give web-based programming some leaway, after all budgets aren’t as high etc. However when said web series comes from FearNet, a site that had backing and had the resources, you have to wonder why they didn’t spend that little bit more money to make something a little more polished. Apparently the budget for Twisted Tales was »
