How am I the only one who thinks this is a bad idea?
There's a pretty good movie that you've probably heard of called The Dead Zone (1983). It was a movie from David Cronenberg based on a Stephen King book where a man could see someone's future just by touching them. This lead the character on a battle against fate. Dark House (2014) is about Nick Di Santo (Luke Kleintank) who touches people and knows how they will die (if it's gruesome enough). After his lunatic mother dies, Nick is bequeathed a house, a house he's been drawing all of his life. So, with his subtly named pregnant girlfriend Eve (Alex McKenna) and buddy Ryan (Anthony Rey Perez), Nick goes in search of his ancestral home. Once they get in the neighborhood, they run in to Scut Farkus (Zack Ward)--who has changed his name to Chris and become a geological »

Watch Walken waltz in, Buscemi step it out with De Blasio, a cat who thinks he is an escapologist and a Disney near-disaster
We've got our dancing shoes on this week and start the list with a wonderful dance compilation featuring Christopher Walken. The much-imitated actor has appeared in more than 100 films and television shows, including The Deer Hunter, Annie Hall, The Dogs of War, The Dead Zone, A View to a Kill, True Romance, Pulp Fiction and Catch Me If You Can, as well as music videos by many recording artists, including Madonna. In 2001 Walken helped to choreograph a video for Fatboy Slim's Weapon of Choice, which won six MTV awards.
Someone who could do with a little Walken magic is New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, who makes his debut at the Inner Circle Show later this month. Luckily he gets some training tips from Steve Buscemi for the charity event, »

While Academy Award winner Christopher Walken is probably best known for playing the creepy guy you can't help but love in films such as "Annie Hall," "The Deer Hunter" and "Pulp Fiction," what he really wants to do is...dance! Believe it or not, the iconic actor started out as a musical theater dancer at the Washington Dance Studio. Somehow, without our noticing, he has managed to find a way to fit a song-and-dance number (or at least a dance number) into almost every film he's been in. Don't believe it? Check out this infectious supercut of Walken dancing with footage from "The Dead Zone," "Puss in Boots," "Wedding Crashers," "Hairspray" and many more films. You've got to admit that Walken's got the moves!Check out the video from Huffington Post below and read more about the making of it here. »

One of the most prolific writers of the past few decades, Stephen King has never been a stranger to television. In fact, countless novels and short stories in the writer’s catalog have been adapted for the small screen since the late 1970s. However, it does seem as if King’s work is experiencing a bit of a resurgence on television.
While many television adaptations of King’s work have opted to format his novels into mini-series, networks have become increasingly interested in transforming his stories into full-fledged series. USA’s The Dead Zone – which ran from 2002 to 2007 – is one fairly recent example of this trend, but newer projects like CBS’s Under the Dome and Syfy’s Haven indicate that King’s TV presence may be on ...

You’ve got to love a show that gets stronger over time… or at least gets higher ratings, and since that’s exactly the case with Syfy‘s Haven, fans can relax for quite a while. The network has ordered 26 new episodes, and they will air as a split fifth season. 13 will air in the fall, and the remaining 13 will air sometime in 2015.
According to the announcement, it isn’t just ratings that are high on the network’s radar. Up on the social media chatter front, the show is clearly proving itself as one with loyal, and vocal, fans, and the network is paying attention to that.
