The Soska Sisters Line Up Their Next Project

24 July 2014 9:04 AM, PDT

Jen and Sylvia Soska (American Mary) have been busy of late.  They have See No Evil 2 coming out later this year, they have wrapped shooting on another film, Vendetta, and now comes word that they have just signed on for their next project.

The twins will be taking on Painkiller Jane, a comic book character created by Jimmy Palmiotti and Joe Quesada in the 1990s.

In the comics, Jane Vasko, is a cop who, along with with her best friend and partner, goes undercover into an interconnected drug ring. When her identity is exposed, Jane is tortured, which leaves her with preternatural regenerating abilities and a high tolerance for pain.

If the name sounds familiar it may be because Jane has been adapted twice before for television.  The SyFy channel aired a made-for-tv movie in 2005 with Emmanuelle Vaugier as the heroine. That was followed in 2007 with a series starring »

Sharknado 2 seems to be getting all the attention these days when it comes to campy Syfy originals, but it isn't the only shclock on the block.  Premiering just a few days after Sharknado we will be treated to another Roger Corman mashup movie.  

Shartopus vs. Pteracuda (inspired by true events according to the poster) tells the story of a captive Sharktopus which must be unleashed to fight yet another science experiment gone wrong: the half-Pterodactyl, half-Barracuda. 

The movie also boasts a comeo by Conan O'Brien and he has just made a clip from his performance available.

Fair warning, this is what one would call a Huge Spoiler. if that concerns you, you may want to skip the clip.

The Annual Purge Will Commence...At Halloween Horror Nights

22 July 2014 9:41 AM, PDT

In the movies, The Purge is a 1 night only, annual event, but Universal Studios doesn't think that is nearly enough.  Halloween Horror Nights has just announced that this year, in both their Orlando and Hollywood parks, The Purge: Anarchy will have its own scarezone. Patrons will be able to experience Purge Night on select dates between September 19th and November 1st.

The Purge: Anarchy scarezone will greet guests with pure unadulterated fear, bringing to life the turmoil and pandemonium that awaits those vulnerable to masked vigilantes in search of new victims. Reimagining the movie’s premise that on one night every year, any and all crime is made legal, the scarezone will be inhabited by average citizens transformed into sadistic felons during this period of government-sanctioned lawlessness.

True Blood Recap: Episode 705 'Return to Oz'

22 July 2014 9:07 AM, PDT

True Blood Season 7 Recaps Can Now Be Found At Shock TIll You Drop.

Was this episode written by Shonda Rhimes? Because this week’s episode felt like a lot of emotional realizations without much actually happening. It wasn’t overly sappy, but this episode felt so long. It was a true “middle episode:” we wrapped up the plotline from the first half of the season, and set up the plots for the second half. Unfortunately, the plot setups were a little weak. We have a whole bunch of scorned lovers, and we discover Bill is infected. No surprise there. I am eager to see what kind of torture Eric will rain down on Sarah.
