‘Ash vs Evil Dead 2×02′ Review

With the strong start of Ash vs Evil Dead, attention now turns to the second episode to see if it delivers. With most of the action taking place in a morgue, Bruce Campbell is given the chance to show he still has it when it comes to slapstick comedy.

Ruby is back (Lucy Lawless) and has asked Ash (Bruce Campbell) for help. In the search for the Necronomicon he finds himself alone in the morgue looking for the book, while his father Brock (Lee Majors) has a date night at home.

In my review of the season opener I did hint at the morgue scene, and it is one that you do have to have a strong stomach for. The main comedy piece is something that you can see coming, and when you see it, it is as disgusting as you expect. The payoff after this scene is fitting as typically for Ash,

The CW Developing The Lost Boys TV Series

“Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It’s fun to be a vampire.” The CW is looking to tap into the fun and frightening concoction of Joel Schumacher’s The Lost Boys, as they are developing a TV series based on the beloved film.

Deadline broke the news about The Lost Boys TV series, which is being developed and written by Rob Thomas (iZombie, Veronica Mars) at The CW in conjunction with Gulfstream TV and Warner Bros Television.

According to Deadline, the series is being planned by Thomas as a massive seven-season story that would follow an immortal group of vampires (the Lost Boys) as they live through the triumphs and tribulations of each decade. Each season would be set in a new decade, with the debut season expected to take place in San Francisco circa 1967.

It’s unknown at this time whether or not

‘The Lost Boys’ Anthology TV Series in the Works at CW

‘The Lost Boys’ Anthology TV Series in the Works at CW
Yet another remake is making its way to television.

The CW has put a re-imagining of the 1987 film “The Lost Boys” into development, Variety has confirmed.

The potential series hails from “Veronica Mars” and “iZombie” creator Rob Thomas, furthering his relationship with the CW, as his DC Comics zombie rom-com is heading into its third season at the network.

Based on the movie, CW’s “Lost Boys” will be an anthology of sorts, looking at vampires through a new lens, asking the question: what does it really mean to be immortal? The series will tell a story spanning 70 years, each decade a new season — meaning the plan is for the show to go on for seven years. Each season, the humans, the setting, the antagonist and the story all change — only the vampires, our Lost Boys, remain the same. The first season will be set in San Francisco during 1967 — the Summer of Love.

The Lost Boys Is Getting a Comic Book Sequel

The Lost Boys Is Getting a Comic Book Sequel
Truth, justice and the American way prevail! It seems we're getting a true Lost Boys 2, only in the form of a comic. 30 years removed from the release of the original cult classic, this is perhaps the only way to go, especially since one of the main stars has long since drifted into the chilly night air of Santa Carla. The Lost Boys sequel comic will pick up where we last left Sam, Mike, his mother and their vampire fighting Grandpa.

There's no denying that The Lost Boys is an 80s cult classic that has a legion of fans. But the franchise hasn't exactly faired well over the past few decades. The movie was supposed to get a true sequel heading into the 90s, which never happened. It would have revolved around an all-girl vampire coven, and may have just been too far ahead of its time. It wasn't until 2008 that

‘The Lost Boys’ Sequel Comic in the Works from Vertigo (Exclusive)
The Lost Boys” never grow old and never die, which means it’s never too late for a sequel to the cult classic film.

The team promises to deliver a gruesome and stylish return to the bloody boardwalks and big hair of 1987.

In the new miniseries, Santa Carla, California, is on edge. The eccentric coastal town and haven for the undead was finally returning to “normal” after

“All Aboard”: Top Ten Bus-Related Moments in the Movies

Taking public transportation on the bus in everyday life is essential for workers worldwide as we need to make that daily grinding trek to the workplace, shopping malls, school, doctor’s appointment or whatever our destination may be at the moment. In particular, there is a love/hate relationship with buses as it presents all sort of social challenges: anxiety, chattiness, impatience, friendliness, kindness, anti-socialism, invasive behavior, alienation, nervousness, sense of unity, etc.

Well in the world of movies the bus-related experience can be more colorful and adventurous for the imagination at heart. Thus, it brings up this prolonged thought: what is your favorite or memorable moments dealing with buses on the big screen?

  • Deadline
R.I.P. Lauren Bacall, Sultry Star Of Stage And Screens
Update August 14: Broadway will go dark: The marquees of Broadway theatres in New York will be dimmed in memory of Lauren Bacall on Friday, August 15, at exactly 7:45 p.m. for one minute.

One of the leading ladies of Hollywood’s Golden Age died today after a stroke. The sultry, fiery Lauren Bacall was 89. MSNBC’s Thomas Robert broke the news in a tweet, and the Bogart estate has confirmed it. She was famous for starring — onscreeen and off — with Humphrey Bogart in such 1940s classics as The Big Sleep, To Have and Have Not, Dark Passage and Key Largo. In one of Hollywood’s great love stories, they married in 1945 and stayed together until his death in 1957. Four years later she married another acting legend, Jason Robards Jr.; they divorced in 1969.

‘Sisters’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

Stars: Jennifer Salt, Margot Kidder, William Finley, Charles Durning, Lisle Wilson, Barnard Hughes, Mary Davenport, Dolph Sweet | Written by Brian De Palma, Louisa Rose | Directed by Brian De Palma

Fans of Alfred Hitchcock movies will watch Brian De Palma’s Sisters and at the beginning notice that the music sounds a little like that out of Psycho. Then they’ll notice that the relationship between the two sisters is a little like Norman and his mother, before they are suddenly slapped in the face with a change in tone and suddenly it’s Rear Window. I guess you could say that De Palma was ripping off Hitchcock, it’s been said many times. In my view though this is of little importance when Sisters works so well. If you are going to take inspiration in your filmmaking from anywhere, why not copy off the master? Plenty of others have done so.

The Lost Boys 4 Is Dead and the Frog Brothers TV Series Is Homeless

The Lost Boys 4 Is Dead and the Frog Brothers TV Series Is Homeless
The Lost Boys franchise is a strange one. A cult hit from 1987, it was supposed to get a proper sequel two years after its release, which would have revolved around The Lost Girls. That never came to fruition. But the film, which was notable for bringing together two of that eras biggest teen stars, The Two Coreys, the late Corey Haim and Corey Feldman, continued to have a solid shelf life throughout the years.

In 2008, Warner Premiere, the home video division of Warner Bros., notable for turning some of the studios past hits into straight-to-dvd franchise, decided to revive The Lost Boys with Lost Boys: The Tribe, a film the fans didn't really want. It was more of a reboot than a true sequel, and it was quite disappointing. Except for the inclusion of its one returning star, Corey Feldman, who reprised his role as Edgar Frog, one half of the Frog Brothers,

31 Days Of Horror For October - Day 11: Sisters (1973)

Brian De Palma is a director who seems to have lost his way with the more recent films of his. But to go back and see the beginnings of such a greatness is the quite the experience. Sisters is one of his earlier works, a Hitchcockian style horror/thriller and easily one of the best films I have seen from him. Watching the film now, I can feel the influences it has had, not sure how this missed my radar until now but I sure am glad I found it.

Margot Kidder stars as Danielle, a young and beautiful woman who lives in a Staten Island apartment and works as a model/actress. After an appearance on a TV show called Peeping Tom, she goes on a date with someone else who appeared on the show. They are followed by a man who she says is her ex-husband, and then head back to her apartment.
