7 hours ago

Students on a college campus are stalked by a malicious murderer: horror film fans have seen this setup in many films like Final Exam, Scream 2, and Urban Legend, but we’ve never seen Ryan Murphy’s take on this story setup. That will change by next year, though, as the American Horror Story co-creator is moving forward on a university-set horror-comedy series called Scream Queens for Fox.

Press release via Yahoo: “Los Angeles (Reuters) – Fox has ordered anthology series “Scream Queens” from the creator of ‘Glee” and “American Horror Story,” the U.S. television network said on Monday, as broadcast TV takes a cue from a format largely successful on cable networks. »

Rick and company have discovered a temporary safe haven in Father Gabriel’s church, but they are not the only survivors in the walker-infested wilderness and it looks like things will take a dark turn in episode 3. Get a tease of the difficulties and distrust to come with these photos and preview clip:

“Season Four of “The Walking Dead” ended with Rick and the group outgunned, outnumbered, and trapped in a train car awaiting a grim fate.

See David Warner as Freddy Krueger in Early Makeup Test Images

13 hours ago

Robert Englund is celebrated by horror hounds for bringing to life the wicked wit and intimidating menace of Freddy Krueger in eight A Nightmare on Elm Street films and a TV series. But what may surprise some Elm Street strollers is that David Warner (The Omen) was originally cast in the role of the iconic killer, and we have a look at what Freddy would have looked like with Warner behind the scorched skin.

Originally considered to play Freddy Krueger, David Warner had to opt out of Wes Craven’s horror classic due to scheduling conflicts, but before he was out of the picture, early makeup tests were completed that show Warner as the dream invader.

David Warner has played a plethora of characters over the decades, including roles in The Omen (1976), Tron, In the Mouth of Madness, Titanic, and more recently portrayed Professor Abraham Van Helsing in Showtime’s Penny Dreadful. »
