Exclusive Clip From The Town That Dreaded Sundown: Blood On Their Hands

2 July 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Have you seen the original version of The Town That Dreaded Sundown? It pretty much hit the sweet spot of Southern horror / low-budget "truthfulness," as director Charles B. Pierce gave the material a faux-documentary look and appeal that helped distinguish it back in 1976, telling the supposedly true story of a serial killer who stalked lover's lanes in 1946 Arkansas. Even though I'm a huge fan of 1970s cinema, I have to admit that the original is showing its age; the tone veers all over the place, for one thing. That made it ripe for a thoughtful remake and -- surprise! -- that's what it got last year, courtesy of director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. Our own Andrew Mack saw it at the...

The Town that Dreaded Sundown Replays an Old Reel (2014): A Movie Review

28 June 2015 9:43 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

*full disclosure: a DVD screener of this film was provided by Visual Entertainment Inc. Director: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon. Writers: Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Earl E. Smith. Cast: Addison Timlin, Veronica Cartwright, Anthony Anderson and Travis Tope. A new slasher is set to release this summer. The horror film is titled The Town that Dreaded Sundown. Astute horror film fans will realize that this is the second film to be based on the "Moonlight Murders." In 1946, a serial killer stalked the local lovers of Texarkana. He killed eight and assaulted several more. He was never caught. In the latest version of The Town that Dreaded Sundown, writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa ("American Horror Story") tries to bring some fictional closure to events, which took place over sixty-nine years ago. Though, the real life murders are more horrifying than the ones shown here. This latest film is an homage to the 1976 original film; but, it lacks any real terror. »

Ghosts of the past take center stage in ‘Afterlife with Archie’ #8

Afterlife with Archie #8

Written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

Art by Francesco Francavilla

Published by Archie Comics

Afterlife with Archie is finally back, with the third chapter of the ominously titled arc “Betty Rip.” So far the series has shown it is willing to expand its horror goals beyond mere zombies, first intertwining H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos into the series, and now paying homage to Stephen King and Stanley Kubrick’s paranoia filled tale, The Shining, with a healthy dose of Charles Dickens. The result is an issue that is more somber and dread-filled than previous issues, full of slow-burn fear and hidden threats.

After a Thanksgiving marred by violence and betrayal, the remaining survivors of Riverdale settle into the sinister Bradbury Hotel for Christmas. The building bears more than a passing resemblance to the iconic Overlook Hotel featured in The Shining. Artist Francesco Francavilla pays homage to the labyrinthine, distressing »

Season Finale Review: 'Looking' - 'Looking for Home' or 'Wait, you're on Grindr?'

22 March 2015 9:51 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The second season of HBO's "Looking" came to dramatic end tonight and before we remark on where this episode leaves Patrick, Agustin and Dom, let's take a few minutes and review the entire season, shall we? After a bumpy, but often impressive first season, "Looking" returned in January with a strong season premiere ("Looking for the Promised Land") which found Patrick (Jonathan Groff) and Kevin (Russell Tovey) deeply involved in a discreet affair, Dom (Murray Bartlett) wondering if he'd become closer with his new boyfriend Lynn (Scott Bakula) and Agustin (Frankie J. Alvarez) trying to dig himself out of a his life hole with a slightly more positive demeanor (likely more thanks to viewer complaints than anything else).  The big news was that the show runners had 10 1/2 hour episodes to tell their story versus just eight the prior season. In theory, this meant they could spend more time fleshing out »

Archie Comics announces new horror imprint

22 March 2015 1:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Archie Comics has announced that acclaimed titles Afterlife with Archie and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina are set to return this Spring under a new Archie Horror imprint.

“[The Archie Horror books] have prompted the best work of our careers,” says writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. “To take these iconic characters and reimagine them and place them in situations they’ve never been in before—it’s a blast, and I’m glad people are responding to it.”

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #2 will arrive on April 15th courtesy of Aguirre-Sacasa and Robert Hack, followed by Afterlife with Archie #8 – an issue inspired by The Shining – on May 6th, with Aguirre-Sacasa writing and art from Francesco Francavilla.

‘The Town That Dreaded Sundown’ Review

18 March 2015 11:03 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Addison Timlin, Veronica Cartwright, Anthony Anderson, Travis Tope, Joshua Leonard, Andy Abele, Gary Cole, Edward Herrmann, Ed Lauter, Arabella Field, Denis O’Hare | Written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Earl E. Smith | Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon

When you think about it, John Carpenter and Wes Craven are to blame. Without them we wouldn’t have the stone-cold genre classics Halloween and A Nightmare on Elm Street. And without them we wouldn’t have their dubious legacy of derivative sequels, remakes and reboots that has plagued multiplexes for going on fifteen years now.

Outside of such an environment, a remake of (or sequel to?) The Town That Dreaded Sundown would never have been greenlit. The blind greed of studio executives is the only logical explanation for this movie’s existence. The creative merit of the enterprise certainly evades me.

Perhaps you need some context; I certainly did. The original was a 1976 slasher »

Looking, Ep. 2.09: “Looking for Sanctuary” finds some relationships strengthening while others break

16 March 2015 12:18 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Looking, Season 2, Episode 9: “Looking for Sanctuary”

Directed by Craig Johnson

Written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa & Tanya Saracho

Airs Sundays at 10 Pm on HBO

By now it’s clear that Looking isn’t too interested in exploring the friendship between its main characters. Far more episodes of the show’s first two seasons, including last night’s “Looking for Sanctuary” have Patrick, Dom, and Agustin going off on their own romantic or personal adventures, each character in his own storyline. Occasionally the three of them will go out to lunch and update each other about what’s going on in their lives, or they’ll see each other at a party and introduce one another to a current boyfriend, but ultimately they lead separate lives. While this actually pretty realistic – thirty-something men with careers and relationships usually don’t spend every waking hour with their friends – it’s almost unprecedented in the world of episodic television. »

Looking, Ep. 2.04: “Looking Down the Road” kills its idols

9 February 2015 11:57 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Looking, Season 2, Episode 4: “Looking Down the Road

Directed by Ryan Fleck

Written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

Airs Sundays at 10 Pm on HBO

Looking has often loved its secondary characters more than its leads. Patrick, Dom, and Agustin have continually paired off with people, in both romance and friendship, who are smarter, nicer, and more together than they are. Richie, Lynn, Doris, and Kevin have been the voices or reason, of patience, and of exasperation throughout the show’s run. They’ve shared their advice, which has usually fallen on deaf ears, and have tried to form meaningful bonds with the central trio of characters, with varying degrees of success. This intelligence gap, or empathy gap, has been detrimental to the success of the show. Why follow the lives of a group of emotionally stunted, unambitious babies when this rich tapestry of noble humanity is one degree away? Why can’t »

A few weeks ago came word that the ongoing horror comic series "Afterlife With Archie" might become either a TV series or a movie, and one separate to Greg Berlanti's currently in development,"Archie"-inspired TV series "Riverdale" which will likely screen on Fox.

Now, an old interview with comic writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa from a while back has cleared up some of the confusion. Apparently, "Afterlife with Archie" will be incorporated into "Riverdale," specifically every annual Halloween »

Fox's Riverdale Show Will Have Afterlife With Archie Episodes Every Halloween

5 January 2015 1:34 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In December, Jon Goldwater, CEO of Archie Comics participated in a Reddit Ama. During the chat Goldwater coyly said Afterlife With Archie could become a television series or a movie, but an interview from October with the comic's writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa reveals the real plan. Cbr: Roberto, is there anything else folks show know at this point about "Riverdale"? Nothing, except that we're really, really excited -- and that if, god willing, this works out the way we all want it to work out, every Halloween we'll be doing an "Afterlife" episode of "Riverdale." Currently, Arrow and The Flash showrunner, Greg Berlanti, is working on a television show based on characters from Archie Comics. It is tentatively titled Riverdale and is being developed for Fox. It will be a one-hour drama. If it goes well, you can expect a zombie-filled episode during Halloween every year. Neat! Afterlife With Archie Magazine »
