Ryan Murphy is keeping a firm grip on small-screen horror. The co-creator of American Horror Story is on track to ensure that his next series, Scream Queens, will follow in the footsteps of his aforementioned smash hit. In addition to adopting the anthology format of Ahs, Scream Queens is accruing an equally impressive cast that genre fans are gonna love.
According to numerous sources, the 15-episode series will be led by bona fide horror legend Jamie Lee Curtis, and fledgling final girl, Emma Roberts. Both actresses have dallied with the dark side on more than one occasion. In fact, Curtis emerged on the film scene in John Carpenter’s 1978 Halloween. Before long she became a slasher pin-up, after starring turns in Terror Train, The Fog and Prom Night during the late 70s and early 80s. It wasn’t until the underrated reboot of the Halloween franchise, Halloween: H20, in 1998 that »

Ryan Murphy’s horror-comedy anthology series on Fox, Scream Queens, has cast its first two major leads. The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Emma Roberts and Jamie Lee Curtis have been cast, but details on their characters are currently being kept under wraps.
Roberts has had experience working in the genre on Murphy’s American Horror Story and in 2011’s Scream 4. Curtis is the major get for the show, though, being that she is the original “scream queen” by the common definition we know today. The actress famously starred in Halloween, Halloween II, H20: Halloween 20 Years Later, The Fog, Prom Night, and Terror Train. Having a show called Scream Queens without Curtis’ inclusion would’ve have been a giant missed opportunity, so this news is especially exciting.
The series is set on a college campus where a series of murders begin to take place. Like American Horror Story, the »

As Laurie Strode in four Halloween films, Jamie Lee Curtis was an exceptional horror movie protagonist opposite the malevolent Michael Myers, while Emma Roberts gave multi-dimensional turns in Wes Craven’s Scream 4 and Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story. It’s just been revealed that both actresses are set to take on lead roles in Murphy’s Scream Queens horror-comedy series on Fox.
Deadline reports that Curtis and Roberts are lined up for leading roles in the Scream Queens TV show. An anthology series that is scheduled to premiere its 15-episode season in the fall of 2015, Scream Queens centers on a college campus turned upside down by a string of murders.
In October, Murphy revealed that, like American Horror Story, Scream Queens will follow a new storyline with a fresh setting each season. He also mentioned that every season will focus on two female lead roles, so it’s »

The project, which has landed a straight-to-series order from Fox, is designed as an anthology series revolving around two female leads each season, with the first season focused on activity at a college campus rocked by a series of murders.
Roberts is well-suited for the series as a veteran of Murphy’s “American Horror Story” franchise, having appeared in “Coven” and “Freakshow.” Curtis has made her own mark in the horror genre with her roles in “Halloween,” “The Fog” and “Prom Night.”
Fox has ordered 15 episodes of “Scream Queens” for a premiere next fall. Murphy serves as co-creator alongside “Glee” collaborators Ian Brennan and Brad Falchuck, who is also co-creator of “American Horror Story.”

What new horrors await us on DVD this month? Well, lots of bloodsuckers, for starters...
As the old Simpsons quote goes, there are only three real monsters, kid: Dracula, Blacula and Son of Kong. Sadly, giant gorilla junior doesn’t make an appearance this month though we’ve at least got the first two categories covered.
Leading the way with aplomb, our friend Blacula finally graces this young blog with not one but two classics released on Blu-ray and DVD as a complete collection. In case you’re not familiar with this wonderful splicing of seventies Blaxploitation and gothic horror (shame on you if so), the tale of undead African prince Mamuwalde and his ongoing struggle with both his own bloodlust and pesky locals trying to stake him through the heart is both surprisingly well-made and massively enjoyable. Oh, and its success also led to the subsequent release of Blackenstein, »
In celebration of Sound on Sight’s 7th anniversary, writers were asked to come up with articles that present their childhood favorites in the realm of films, TV shows, books or games.
I chose films and anyone who has any familiarity with my writing knows I am virtually incapable of writing an article about a single film so I’m going to focus on a number of movies I saw in my youth.
Growing up in suburban Cincinnati, Ohio, I was fortunate enough to have my own room and my own TV set.
My family didn’t go out to the cinema very often so my introduction to movies was primarily through television.
The household cable television was limited to the family room and the parental restrictions that went with that so a far as movie watching went, it was mostly just me in my room where there were no »

“This is Joe Bob Briggs reminding you that the Drive-In will Never Die!”
In 1993, Monstervision on TNT in America, was mostly a program that aired old horror movies and science fiction with the occasional hosting from magicians Penn and Teller. During the early nineties, many cable channels hadn’t yet solidified their formats, and horror hosts were still ways to fill late night television since most channels couldn’t afford original programming. During that time, esteemed and controversial film critic John Bloom (known by his pen name Joe Bob Briggs), finished his tenure at the Movie Channel, which had also began changing its format.
Briggs was unfortunately released from his acclaimed show where he introduced uncut movies for his fans with his color commentary book ending the movies. The prologues and closers often featured comedy with the Briggs character, when he wasn’t interviewing genre favorites like Linnea Quigley. He »

One of the most influential women in horror of all time, Debra Hill would have been 64 years old this year. As a perfect way to pay honor and respects, the filmmaking team Dpyx (Marcy Boyle and Rachel Holzman) have announced that they will write, direct, and produce The Debra Hill Documentary. Lotti Pharris Knowles of Weirdsmobile Productions will serve as executive producer. This will be the first film about Debra Hill, and by telling her story, the filmmakers hope to preserve an important piece of the empowering history of women in Hollywood.

She teamed with Carpenter on his next feature, Halloween, as his co-writer and producer. After the extraordinary success of that film, Hill became a key player in a wave of trailblazing women who broke barriers in the male-dominated film industry. »

“If a movie makes you happy, for whatever reason, then it’s a good movie.”
*******Warning: Review Contains Spoilers*******
By Ernie Magnotta
If there’s one thing I love, it’s 1970s made-for-tv horror films. I remember sitting in front of the television as a kid and watching a plethora of films such as Gargoyles, Bad Ronald, Satan’s School for Girls, Horror at 37,000 Feet, Devil Dog: Hound of Hell, Scream Pretty Peggy, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, Moon of the Wolf and The Initiation of Sarah just to name a few. Some of those are better than others, but all were fun.
When I think back, there have been some legendary names associated with small screen horrors. Genre masters John Carpenter (Halloween), Steven Spielberg (Jaws), Wes Craven (Nightmare on Elm Street), Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and Joseph Stefano (Psycho) all took shots at television »
