Before Stephen King (on the printed page) and John Carpenter (on the big screen) introduced horror fans to a ’58 Plymouth Fury with a violent temper in Christine, George Bowers set out to give them goosebumps with The Hearse (1980), coming to Blu-ray this May from Vinegar Syndrome.
Blu-ray.com reports that Vinegar Syndrome will release The Hearse on Blu-ray on May 30th. No special features or cover art have been released at this time, but you can be sure that we'll keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are revealed.
Synopsis (via Blu-ray.com): "Jane Hardy, recovering from emotional problems following a difficult divorce, leaves San Francisco for a summer in the country house left to her by her late aunt. On the road, she has an eerie, near-collision with a hearse. Arriving at "the old Martin place," she discovers it's been left as it was when her aunt died 30 years before. »

3.4 Empty Orchestra
“When you’ve cut someone’s bum off and eaten it, you kind of go, well, better try something different!” Steve Pemberton told us at the Inside No. 9 series three launch. In Empty Orchestra, a (whisper it) love story with a (keep whispering) happy ending, something different is exactly what he and Reece Shearsmith have done.
Compared to the thoroughgoing nastiness of The Riddle Of The Sphinx, this one’s as refreshing as a sea breeze. The baddies are punished, the goodies are rewarded, and the viewer can skip happily to bed »

You've probably heard of chaos theory and a thing called the butterfly effect - a concept where the flapping of an insect's wings in a London borough causes a shed to collapse somewhere in the Australian outback. In other words, seemingly incidental events can have a knock-on effect on everything else - like that old board game, Mousetrap, where a ball falling into a bath caused a boot to kick a bucket, which eventually led to the cruel detainment of several rodents.
The concept applies even in the high-stakes, high-energy world of filmmaking, where the success of one type of movie can prompt rival studios to greenlight their own, »
White Martians took over the bodies of some of our heroes on Supergirl Season 2 Episode 11, making it impossible to know who to trust.
We also said goodbye to M'gann, who is sadly heading back to Mars.
React to M'gann's decision to go back to Mars.
Steve: Well, good-bye then I guess? Something tells me M'gann will be back sooner rather than later. I think she will end up becoming a valuable ally to them down the road.
Christine: I wasn’t expecting that. I appreciated her reasoning, that if good people (or aliens) don’t stand up and fight for what they believe in, then that allows evil to take over. But I do feel bad for J’onn. The poor guy deserves a little love. »

This has easily been the hardest time I’ve ever had whittling down my favorite genre offerings for the year. I was fortunate to watch so many great movies throughout the course of the last 12 months (over 150—new and old!), and considering the quality of projects from both the studio and independent sides of the business was exceedingly high, I probably could have featured 20 films on this list, and still would have at least a dozen more I could recommend to fellow fans. 2016 was definitely one of the best recent years in horror and that’s pretty rad.
Beyond the realm of movies, horror also had a strong showing on TV, as it seems almost every single network these days has something of interest if you’re looking to immerse yourself in horror on the small screen. I was also fortunate enough to attend several amazing genre events in 2016, making »

Here at Et, we love an anniversary -- whether it’s the 20th anniversary of Scream or Clueless, 10 years in the life of The Hills or the magical time making No Doubt’s Magic Kingdom 20 years later. And as we settle in 2017, it’s time to look ahead at all those upcoming moments that will have you saying, “I remember when…”
Here’s a brief look at our favorite TV and film milestones of 2017:
While fans are crying over Mandy Moore’s Golden Globe-nominated performance on NBC’s hit new series This Is Us, it was just 15 years ago that they cried over her performance in the weepy adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ book about a girl with cancer who falls in love with a rebellious classmate.
