Information Courtesy of Dark Shadows News Page Kathryn Leigh Scott who played Maggie Evans in the original television show says that she was surprised that Helena Bonham Carter would disparage her soap opera. Helena in a recent interview had this to say about Dark Shadows, "a really bad, hilariously bad soap opera." Kathryn wrote a letter to the Dark Shadows News Page:"Lara Parker (Angelique) and I, who both play cameos in the new Dark Shadows film, are surprised by Helena Bonham Carter's comments because they do not at all reflect our wonderful conversation together on the set. She was eager to hear about Grayson Hall, who played Dr. Julia Hoffman, and we were only too happy to tell her about our old friend." "Helena and Michelle Pfeiffer »

As we’ve been telling you, Chiller has adapted Steve Niles’ graphic novel Remains into their first original movie, to air this Friday at 10/9c. He took some time out of his schedule to participate in a question and answer session last week, and he was terrific. He talked about the adaptation, the current popularity of zombies, his work on Paradise Lost, and more.
First, SciFi Mafia asked him about his involvement in the production.
Steve Niles: You know they kept me very close to it. Basically, I guess the best way to call my role was, I supervised a lot. They ran the script by me and I did set visits and I was in constant contact with the folks at Chiller and Synthetic and they kept me involved at every stage of approving makeup and like I said, the script.
But part of it is these guys »

Thousands of film fans responded to the survey, which was posted on Fandango.com during the first weeks of December. According to male moviegoers, the most anticipated blockbuster of 2012 will be Warner Bros’ The Hobbit, while for females, it’s Summit’s Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2. When it comes to remakes, men are most anticipating Sony’s Total Recall while women are most looking forward to Warner Bros’ The Great Gatsby.

Holy crap. I mean — holy crap. The trailer for “Invisible Mom 2″ director Fred Olen Ray’s upcoming monster movie “Super Shark” is packed to the gills with fish-related mayhem, so much so that I really don’t think I need to watch the entire movie. The embedded trailer is two-and-a-half minutes long, and features a large number of the flick’s flesh-munching kills. Why suffer through a pointless narrative when you can easily digest all of the highlights in a fraction of the time? I’m just saying. Synopsis junkies are about to get their fix: An offshore drilling accident triggers the release of a giant prehistoric shark. When marine biologist Kat Carmichael (Sarah Lieving) arrives, she runs up against corporate frontman Roger Wade (John Schneider, The Dukes Of Hazard, Smallville, Desperate Housewives), who plots with Stewart (Jerry Lacy, Dark Shadows) to disrupt her investigation. With the help of Skipper Chuck (Tim Abell, »

Are you ready for a giant shark that can walk on land? Are you ready to see a giant shark walk on land? Then you’re ready for Super Shark? If you’re not, you better get ready because this whale of a killer that makes Jaws look like Flipper is surfacing on DVD in early February.
An offshore drilling accident triggers the release of a giant prehistoric shark. When marine biologist Kat Carmichael (Sarah Lieving) arrives, she runs up against corporate frontman Roger Wade (John Schneider, The Dukes Of Hazard, Smallville, Desperate Housewives), who plots with Stewart (Jerry Lacy, Dark Shadows) to disrupt her investigation.
With the help of Skipper Chuck (Tim Abell, Soldier of Fortune, Inc.) and disc jockey Dynamite Stevens (Jimmie "J.J." Walker, Good Times), Kat tries to find a way to defeat the monster, which has evolved to a state where it can walk on dry land and fly. »

Welcome to the first of my reviews of Big Finish’s audio plays! For those of you who don’t know, these are (usually), full cast audio adventures based on various properties. They have ones for Dark Shadows, Highlander, Stargate, Sherlock Holmes, and, relevant to this review, Doctor Who.
Their Doctor Who line features past Doctors and their companions. So far we’ve had the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th Doctors and beginning next year, we get adventures with the 4th Doctor, along with, at various points, Leela, Romana and K-9. Fun times!
This particular story is a lead-in to several current and upcoming Big Finish audios featuring the 8th Doctor (Paul McGann), and his new companion, a young woman by the name of Mary Shelly (Julie Cox).

From Dark Shadows to the Godfather films to The Exorcist, Dick Smith’s body of work as one of cinema’s special effects makeup legends is as impressive as they come. But it’s not just his work on-screen that has made him one of the most influential artists in his field, it’s the fact that he was makeup’s strongest proponent, the guy who refused to keep the secrets for himself and inspired generations of kids to pick up makeup kits and start creating monsters in their own bedrooms. And this past Saturday, at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences building in Beverly Hills, CA, Dick Smith was rewarded with the highest possible honor for his lifetime of work and inspiration at Academy’s Governors Awards.

Dick Smith was presented with an honorary Oscar on Sunday during the 2011 Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences’ Governors Awards. For those that may not be familiar with his name, you’re definitely familiar with his work.
Known as “The Godfather of Makeup”, Dick Smith is the man responsible for the fantastic makeup effects in The Exorcist. With a career spanning over 50 years, he’s worked on dozens of projects, including The Godfather, Dark Shadows, Taxi Driver, Scanners, and many more. Unfortunately, the category for Best Makeup was not included in the Academy Awards until 1981, so some of Dick Smith’s best work was not eligible for an award at the time.

You probably already suspect you like Mindy Kaling. The smarty pants funny girl has carved a nice bit of niche fame for herself playing Kelly Kapoor on NBC's much-loved "The Office," and she did it all without a reality show, a divorce or public meltdown. But casual fans of the show may be less aware of her involvement behind the scenes. Not only is she a key member of the Emmy-nominated writing team that brings the show to life, she's even directed a couple of episodes.
If you follow her on Twitter, you also know she likes Beyonce and online shopping.
I've long been a fan of Kaling. I can always be counted on to rally around smart, funny women, and am eternally more interested in the most mundane things about them (What is Tina Fey watching these days? Does Amy Poehler have a favorite brand of beer?) than I »
