Back in November, news broke that a new TV series is being developed based on the 1990 cult classic Tremors, with Kevin Bacon in the lead. He starred in the original as monster hunter Valentine McKee, and is coming back to both star in and executive produce the continuation of this popular horror franchise. Unfortunately, we haven't heard anything further about this TV series since then. Thankfully, Kevin Bacon revealed today that the project is still very much in development. It is being planned as a 10-episode mini-series. Unfortunately, we don't know much else at this point.
Kevin Bacon himself shared the news today during a video Q&A session on his Twitter page, where he was asked by a fan if he'd actually consider making another Tremors movie. Sadly, the actor doesn't shed any light on the story, or when the series may air, but it seems the miniseries is still in active development. »
Law & Order: Svu is taking on The Bachelor, but that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the "Assaulting Reality" episode. Things kick off when Rollins (Kelli Giddish) and Carisi (Peter Scanavino) are watching Heart's Desire: New York when a contestant's steamy night with the bachelor is shown on live TV…except she doesn't remember it. "Wait, I don't remember any of this," she says. "…I'm a virgin, I would never have slept with him. Did Ryan rape me?" Yikes. Guest stars include The Secret World of Alex Mack and 10 Things I Hate About You star Larisa Oleynik as a producer on the fake reality show, Michael Gross of Family Ties, Just »
As heartfelt as it is unsettling, the “Father’s Day” segment of the horror anthology Holidays is not only my favorite short of the film, it’s also one of the most enthralling things I’ve seen this year. For most of its runtime, the segment solely stars Jocelin Donahue as Carol, a woman listening to the instructions of her supposedly dead father (voiced by Michael Gross) on a tape player, leading her to a final destination of either hope or horror.
With Holidays now out in theaters and on VOD courtesy of Vertical Entertainment and Xyz Films, I had a chance to speak with Donahue, who discussed her powerful performance in “Father’s Day” as well as her improvised scene with Christian Bale and Antonio Banderas in Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups.

“Map of Bones,” published in 2005, is the second of a dozen novels Rollins’ best-selling Sigma Force series, which combines historical figures and events and creates fictional thrillers that are centered around Sigma Force — an elite covert arm of the U.S. Defense Department made up of former Special Forces officers trained as experts in various scientific fields.
The “Map of Bones” story centers on the bones of the three Magi who paid homage to the newborn Jesus Christ. The story starts at a crowded service at a »

No film franchise should ever make it to its fifth installment. A prime example: Disney is currently dead-set on making a fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie when we all know that stretching Johnny Depp’s eyeliner-smudged antics out into an entire trilogy was already teetering on the edge of way too much. I can understand the desire to turn one film into a trilogy, a la Peter Jackson. Trilogies tend to form a natural story arc, from (satisfying) beginning to (usually kind of boring) middle to (hopefully satisfying) end. However, once you venture beyond three, you are venturing into worlds best left unexplored. Yet I suppose one cannot expect storytelling restraint for the sake of avoiding creative burnout when it comes to the Tremors franchise. The original 1990 film starring Kevin Bacon, Reba McIntyre and Michael Gross is fondly remembered by many for its bizarre genre mash-up of comedy with good old-fashioned creature feature horror. »
