The Conjuring 2: Expect the Worst (In a Good way)

21 March 2016 9:27 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

This June will see the release of the highly anticipated follow-up to hit horror outing The Conjuring, which means that once more we’ll be opening the past case files of famed paranormal investigative couple Ed and Lorraine Warren. The sequel is based on the true life events that occurred in a home in north England in the late 70’s, which was better known at the time as the Enfield Poltergeist, and revolves around the time that the Warrens visited the home and met with the family to investigate this unsettling event.

Here’s hoping that 2016 will be another great year in horror. It’s obvious that horror is already influencing a number of other mediums at the moment with horror on TV in particular enjoying huge success. Even the gaming industry is seeing a rise in genre-based franchises including the release of the Outlast sequel and the Scary Friends »

7 March 2016 4:40 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London — The fifth season of crime drama “Ripper Street” will be its last, Amazon Prime has revealed.

Amazon stepped in to save “Ripper Street” in early 2014, following outcry from fans when the show was cancelled by the BBC after two seasons. The original Tiger Aspect production team was commissioned by Amazon to create season three, which launched exclusively for Prime members in the U.K. in November 2014.

At the same time, seasons one and two were made available for unlimited streaming for Prime members. When season three launched on Prime Video, it was streamed more than any other TV show on the service and was the most popular British drama amongst customers.

In the final season, writer Richard Warlow shows how, as the Victorian age comes to a close, the police officers of H Division attempt to maintain law and order on the streets of Whitechapel. Joseph Mawle (“In the Heart of the Sea »

Ripper Street: confirmed to end after series 5

Amazon has announced that Ripper Street has begun filming on its "fifth and final series", with an old face returning...

When Amazon announced a simultaneous renewal for series four and five of the resurrected Ripper Street, there was a tacit understanding that those two runs would mark the end of the show.

That understanding has gone from unspoken to well... spoken, in the press release announcing the start of series five filming, which definitively calls it the "fifth and final season".

Ripper Street creator Richard Warlow previously announced his intention to take the show all the way to the end of the Victorian era, which, by our calculations, will require another short time jump to get from the 1897-set fourth series to the close of Victoria's reign in 1901. 

Sad news as the end is for any series which has, like Ripper Street, gone from strength to strength, »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies review – when the undead are dead boring

4 February 2016 10:08 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Wise-cracking Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy slash away at reanimated corpses in a bloody reworking of Jane Austen. But it’s not as much fun as it sounds

Early in Pride and Prejudice Mr Darcy offers his opinion of Elizabeth Bennet to Mr Bingley: “She is tolerable.” Would that I could say the same about this stupid film. Representing the lowest form of mashup, Burr Steers’ ridiculous adaptation is, to be fair, a fascinating example of an idiotic culture gone horribly wrong.

I have not read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (the “Quirk Book classic”, as it is described in the credits) for two reasons. One, life is finite, and two, if I simply had to dig into Seth Grahame-Smith’s oeuvre, I’d choose Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. It has to be said that the first two-thirds of Steers’ film has stretches that aren’t too bad. »

Ripper Street takes a turn to the Gothic in the latest episode of series 4, which is going from strength to strength...

This review contains spoilers.

4.3 A White World Made Red

When a man is found in an abattoir store hung upside down and drained of his blood and a woman is found nearby, also exsanguinated, Reid, Drake and Jackson investigate the double murder that seems to be resulting from scientific experimentation. Connecting back to Newgate, the killings threaten Jackson’s plans to keep Susan hidden and they’re both prepared to take whatever steps necessary to ensure she isn’t found. Elsewhere, Mathilda’s reading the latest bestselling novel and using it to make advances on the not-so-unsuspecting Sergeant Drummond.

Given its 1897 setting, it’s not surprising that Ripper Street decided to take a turn to the Gothic in its current run as Mathilda (a girl after »

The newly bureaucratic policing system - and lots of deaths - are providing difficult challenges for Edmund in Ripper Street this week...

This review contains spoilers.

4.2 Some Conscience Lost

If Edmund Reid thought his transition back to his old life at Lehman Street was going to be an easy one, he was sadly mistaken, as he discovers in the opening to Some Conscience Lost. After a boy dies in his arms and a distraught woman tries to claim the boy as her son, Reid finds himself battling the newly bureaucratic policing system as well as his former sergeant, Drake, who wants him to investigate a spate of victims having their right hands chopped off in Whitechapel. Drake is too busy trying to track down the murderer of a Salvation Army captain to worry about either, whilst Jackson is maintaining his drunken pretence of grieving for the still-very-alive Susan, »
