Horror / Fantasy Round-Up: Twin Peaks, Game of Thrones & The Babadook

  • DailyDead
We’re back with another round-up of news, this time focusing on the return of David Lynch’s seminal series, Twin Peaks, the upcoming Game of Thrones IMAX screenings, and when you can expect to see The Babadook haunt home media.

With Twin Peaks returning to television in nine all-new episodes in 2016 (25 years after it last aired), fans have been wondering which actors will come back. Series co-writer/director David Lynch and Showtime answered one big question by revealing that Kyle MacLachlan will once again step into the shoes of FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper. Lynch even tweeted a new photo of MacLachlan as Agent Cooper holding a “damn fine” cup of coffee. Here’s the official press release (via Collider) and photo (via David Lynch):

The Babadook Flies Santa’s Sleigh in New Animated Holiday Card from IFC Midnight

  • DailyDead
One Christmas Eve, a green, hairy monster that lives in the mountains comes down to Whoville and breaks into homes while the residents sleep—though a children’s tale, Dr. SeussHow the Grinch Stole Christmas! has some scary elements within its pages, but in the new horror movie The Babadook, a book called Mister Babadook contains a supernatural entity that’s way more frightening than the devious Grinch. Horror hounds looking for some twisted seasonal cheer will delight in seeing the crafty creature take Santa’s sled reigns in “How the ’Dook Stole Christmas”, a new holiday e-card from IFC Midnight.

“Six years after the violent death of her husband, Amelia (Essie Davis) is at a loss. She struggles to discipline her ‘out of control’ 6 year-old, Samuel (Noah Wiseman), a son she finds impossible to love. Samuel’s dreams are plagued by a monster he believes is coming to kill them both.

‘The Imitation Game’ Will Stuff Theaters This Holiday Weekend – Specialty Box Office Preview

‘The Imitation Game’ Will Stuff Theaters This Holiday Weekend – Specialty Box Office Preview
The Weinstein Company’s The Imitation Game is the big kid on the block among this holiday weekend’s batch of newcomers. The title is following in the footsteps of past TWC heavyweights The King’s Speech and The Artist, both of which opened to solid box office numbers and eventually scored Oscars for Best Picture. The distributor is expecting good numbers for Imitation Game over the Thanksgiving frame. IFC Films’ horror pic The Babadook has some good buzz heading into the weekend, though it might show its biggest heft via VOD with its day-and-date rollout. Remote Area Medical is one of those films one hopes everyone will see. Timed perfectly for this time of the year’s focus on thanks and giving, the documentary shows the underbelly of America’s healthcare crisis by way of people who provide free medical services to needy people in pop-up clinics around the country.

The Babadook review: A wonderfully disconcerting chiller

The Babadook review: A wonderfully disconcerting chiller
Director: Jennifer Kent; Screenwriter: Jennifer Kent; Starring: Essie Davis, Noah Wiseman, Daniel Henshall, Tiffany Lyndall-Knight, Tim Purcell; Running time: 93 mins; Certificate: 15

The best horror takes place within the dark recesses of your mind. It's not what you see, it's what you feel. An abundance of CGI beasts can never challenge that. The Babadook is a stark reminder of this, gripping and terrifying throughout with only rare lapses into convention.

What makes this Australian movie so chillingly effective is that it's primarily a character study in which writer-director Jennifer Kent takes you inside the tormented psyche of a lonely soul and doesn't let you leave until the end credits. The mind of widower Amelia (Essie Davis) is a disturbing and unsettling place, swamped with grief over the violent death of her husband and strained by the erratic behaviour of her young son Samuel (Noah Wiseman).

When a creepy pop-up book called

Recap: Battlestar Galactica 4.20: "Daybreak, Part II" - 2 of 2

  • TVStar
We left off with Battlestar Galactica having just jumped back to Earth. If you missed the first part, you can read it here. It's worth noting that it's "our Earth" - not the Earth they jumped to earlier in the season. Twelve hours have passed and the scene opens to a beautiful view of Earth's oceans with some light, fluffy clouds overhead and the fleet ships starting to jump in. A transport leaves for the surface where they see a lush, green planet... Admiral Adama, Lieutenant Hoshi, Saul Tigh, Dr. Cottle, and Gaius Baltar are on the planet. They are scouting out the local inhabitants. Baltar passes a pair of binoculars to the Adama and says, "Well, there you have it, Admiral, the most advanced civilization we could locate on this planet. I can't see them talking to each other so either they communicate in a different way, or they're preverbal.

Recap: Battlestar Galactica 4.20: "Daybreak, Part II" - 1 of 2

  • TVStar
The two-hour series finale of Battlestar Galactica starts off with a magnificient nighttime view of Caprica City. It's too bad the upcoming prequel series Caprica takes place fifty years in the past; I would enjoy seeing what the city was like prior to its destruction by the Cylons. At any rate, this is certainly a bittersweet moment in science fiction history. We don't want it to end, but we certainly want to see the ending... The episode starts off with William Adama and Saul Tigh in a bar. Saul is definitely smashed and tries to convince Adama to have a lap dance from one of the dancers, which he turns down. They talk about the decommissioning ceremony that is planned for Galactica. He finally gives in with a toast, "to retirement!" Of course, he has no idea that his decision to participate is what ultimately saves his life and that
