With shows like The Walking Dead and American Horror Story scooping up high ratings and accolades like they’re going out of style, there’s no doubt that horror is dominating TV right now. It’s even becoming a big time trend to turn popular horror movies into their own series’, with spin-offs of Psycho and Silence of the Lambs already moving into their second seasons and others based on The Shining, Scream, The Exorcist and From Dusk Till Dawn currently in the works.
That said, the road to success hasn’t always been an easy one, when it comes to TV adaptations of beloved horror flicks. Over the years we’ve seen many of them come and go, either failing to catch on with audiences the way shows like Bates Motel and Hannibal have or even failing to ever find their way in front of the cameras.

A Two Coreys Halloween: The Essential Horror Movies of Haim and Feldman
On October 29, just two days before Halloween, St. Martin's Press will release the long-awaited Corey Feldman biography Coreyography: A Memoir. It is a must-read for any fan, as it delves deep into the trials and tribulations of this actor's young life in Hollywood. Some of it is funny, some of it is heartbreaking and a great big portion of it is truly scary.
In the book, Feldman talks in great length about his best friend Corey Haim. In the coming weeks, you'll hear a lot about what happened to the two teenagers behind closed doors, and a lot of it's not that pleasant. Instead of dwelling on that in our own review, we'd rather look at the work Haim and Corey Feldman have left behind. Specifically, in honor of the season, their horror movies. The pair met on »

Terrible news for Luke Cage fans last week as Terry Crews has officially taken himself out of the running for Marvel's Power Man. "Everybody's like, 'I want to play this superhero character, that superhero character,'" Crews states in a recent interview with Black Film. "I'd rather make up my own. Make a brand new one, you know. 'Blade' was basically a failed character. That comic book didn't do very well."
While it is a shame to hear that Crews is uninterested in portraying Luke Cage in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he does have a point as far as "Blade's" non-movie endeavors go. Although the vampire hunter has been the star of several ongoing comic series in the past, he never really took off until the "Blade" movie was released back in 1998, which went on to spawn two sequel films and even a live-action TV series. »

With the mammoth box office opening of "Iron Man 3" last weekend, Marvel's Phase 2 is now in full swing and the studio is already looking at possibilities for Phase 3. According to the Hollywood Reporter, scripts for a new "Blade" movie as well as a "Ms. Marvel" film already exist. We have previously seen the character Blade (real name Eric Brooks) on the big screen with Wesley Snipes playing the vampire hunter three times from 1998 to 2004. A television series lasted one season and starred Kirk 'Sticky Fingaz' Jones in the title role. Ms. Marvel, whose alter ego is Carol Danvers (and »

While there are no official plans yet, a betting man could wager that Marvel will eventually be moving forward with rebooting its recently regained franchises. Out of Punisher, Ghost Rider, and Daredevil, none has reached quite the financial success achieved by the Blade series. Wesley Snipes has been out of jail since April and is already back in acting, and reportedly in talks for Expendables 3. I'm sure he'd be good to sign on, but does Marvel need him?
You might say, "Of course. He Is Blade." Exactly my thoughts when I first thought of the question. When people think of a sword wielding vampire hunter, he's the guy that enters everyone's mind...well at least most our minds.
The original movie came out in 1998, and while there were sequels, today's Jon Smith 18 year old (born in 1995) might never have seen the film or be able to tell you much about the Marvel hero. »

Throughout April, we're counting down to the release of Marvel's Iron Man 3 with our picks for the Greatest Comic Book Movies of All Time; here's #23...
Directed by Stephen Norrington.
While Bryan Singer's X-Men (2000) is generally credited with kick-starting the current superhero movie boom, it was actually Marvel's Blade who got in there first, with the Daywalker arriving on the screen two years earlier - and just one year after the disastrous Batman & Robin - thanks to director Stephen Norrington, screenwriter David S. Goyer and star Wesley Snipes.
After the success of Blade, Wesley Snipes returned for the sequels Blade II and Blade: Trinity, but turned down the opportunity to headline the subsequent small screen spin-off Blade: The Series due to an ongoing lawsuit with New Line Cinema, with Kirk »

As you'll no doubt be aware if you're a regular around these parts, we're big fans of comic book movies here at Flickering Myth. So with the 2013 comic book movie season about to get underway in April with the arrival of Oblivion and Iron Man 3, we thought we'd spend the month counting down our picks for the 25 Greatest Comic Book Movies, beginning on April 1st and running right through to the UK release of Iron Man 3 on April 25th.
Over the past few weeks, the writing team here at Flickering Myth have been putting together their own individual top tens, which we've used to compile our list. Any film based upon a comic book was eligible for inclusion, providing it had received a theatrical release either in North America or here in the UK. So, if you're a huge fan of David Hasselhoff and you're outraged as to »

The film is set to be released on DVD on February 5, 2013. On paper (with this group as well as the synopsis), this sounds like it could be a good idea, »
