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

20 December 2014 11:37 AM, PST

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. »

Joe Anderson to Replace Michael Pitt as Mason Verger in Hannibal TV Series

19 December 2014 3:48 PM, PST

Gary Oldman made a memorable impression on viewers as Mason Verger in 2001’s Hannibal and fans recently saw Michael Pitt leave his own imprint on the creepy character in Season 2 of NBC’s Hannibal TV series. Now a third actor will play the unstable Verger, as it’s been revealed that Pitt will not be back for Season 3, prompting showrunner Bryan Fuller to recast the role.

TVLine reports that Michael Pitt decided to drop out of his role as Verger, with no specific reason yet revealed, though scheduling for the in-demand actor is likely a factor. To fill Pitt’s shoes, Fuller has cast Joe Anderson in the vacated role for Season 3. When Verger was last seen in Season 2, he had undergone a major physical transformation similar to the 2001 film, which will cause Anderson to act under a hearty helping of makeup. Anderson has built a very respectable résumé in his 10+ year acting career, »

Although we won’t get to check back into A&E’s Bates Motel until the Season 3 premiere debuts in March, a new promo video has been released that teases the upcoming season and pays tribute to the creepy peeping scene from Psycho, with Freddie Highmore in place of Anthony Perkins and Tracy Spiridakos (Revolution) standing in for Janet Leigh.

The 10-episode third season of Bates Motel will debut on A&E in March of 2015. Returning cast members include Freddie Highmore as Norman Bates, Vera Farmiga as Norman’s mother, Norma Louise Bates, and Max Thieriot as Norman’s half-brother, Dylan Massett.

Tracy Spiridakos, who starred as Charlie Matheson in the now-defunct Revolution series on NBC, joins Bates Motel in the recurring role of Annika Johnson, an intriguing newcomer to the small town of White Pine Bay.

18 December 2014 9:29 AM, PST

Longtime Daily Dead readers should be familiar with the work of comic book writer Michael Moreci from our coverage of Hoax Hunters. He’s also behind the new Dawn of the Apes comic book series from Boom! Studios and I caught up with him for a Q&A feature to discuss his story that bridges the gap between ‘Rise’ and ‘Dawn’.

You’re working on the first ‘Apes’ comic book series in that’s associated with the new movies. Was this story something you came to Boom! with or did they hire you because they were familiar with your work and love of the series?

Mm: I was very lucky in that they came to me, knowing what a big fan I am of the series.

With this taking place in the gap between ‘Rise’ and ‘Dawn,’ did Fox provide you with may specifics as to what you could and couldn’t cover? »
