Stargate is making a comeback! Ten episodes of Stargate: Origins will arrive online this autumn...

Sound the revival klaxon! Stargate is the latest property to get a nostalgia-fuelled kick up the arse, with MGM going so far as to launch its own streaming service to house a new series.

Stargate Command will be the name of the streaming platform, and Stargate: Origins is the title of the show. Ten episodes of the latter will arrive on the former this autumn.

A report from Variety tells us that the show will focus on Catherine Langford, "daughter of archaeologist Paul Langford, who discovered the ancient, round Stargate". In the established canon, she was a young girl when the Stargate was first discovered.

In previous iterations of the franchise, Catherine has been played by Elizabeth HoffmanNancy McClure, Glynis Davies, Kelly Vint and Viveca Lindfors.

Drive-In Dust Offs: Fear No Evil (1981)

17 June 2017 9:56 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

As a first time filmmaker, it takes a lot of courage to not follow the trends. The early ‘80s were flooded with slashers, and for good reason; they were, for the most part, instant ATMs to the studios. Thank God then (or Satan, your florist, a masseuse, whatever floats your boat) for Frank Laloggia, a New Yorker in his mid-20s who decided to go epic out of the gate with Fear No Evil (1981), a parable on Good Versus Evil, capital letters, with a strong Catholic bent filtered through Carrie’s prom dress.

Filmed in 1979 with initial funding coming from Laloggia and the rest from Avco Embassy (who ended up releasing it), this January release found little love from critics (except for Variety) but did pick up the Saturn Award for Best Low Budget Film – and well earned, indeed.
