Editorial: An In Depth Look At Why TV’s Scream Queens Matters by Leonel VHS

25 November 2015 2:34 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Lately I’ve been reveling in the fact that horror has made a huge resurgence on the small screen within the last few years. Back when I was a youngster in the late eighties, horror had a small presence on television, but albeit in a different form. Most of what was on the air then were memorable anthology series ranging from the wonderful reincarnation of the beloved The Twilight Zone to Tales From the Darkside and Amazing Stories to series based on well-known horror franchises: Friday the 13th begat its own series and A Nightmare On Elm Street brought forth the ultra-cheesy and fun Freddy’s Nightmares. I love that there are quite a number of series now on the air to choose from. But unfortunately, the quality varies between them on a great scale. With some of them now having established loyal audiences and rabid cult followings, in their »

Romero's 'Empire of the Dead' TV Show Coming to AMC?

9 November 2015 1:07 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in May, we reported that horror icon George A. Romero has signed a deal with Demarest to develop a TV series adaptation based on his comic book miniseries Empire of the Dead. The report revealed that George A. Romero is co-writing the TV adaptation with his longtime collaborator Peter Grunwald, although it wasn't revealed if a network was involved at that time. Over the weekend, Empire of the Dead comic artist Arthur Suydam attended the Wizard World Comic Con in Louisville, Kentucky, where he revealed to local news station Whas 11 that the series has been picked up by AMC. Here's what the artist had to say, while holding up a copy of the Empire of the Dead comic.

"This just got signed to AMC. The new big zombie series on AMC is expected to be this one right here."

Pieces of Terror: Tales Of Halloween and a Look Back at Horror Anthologies

21 October 2015 5:24 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With the impossibly fun Tales of Halloween now in wide release, it seems like as good a time as any to dig deep into one of my favorite subgenres of horror: the anthology film. From Tales from the Crypt to Tales from the Darkside to Tales from the Hood, the horror anthology offers something for everyone. And apparently that something is “tales.”

In speaking with most of the directors from Tales of Halloween, there was consensus in their feelings about what makes for a great anthology film: singularity of vision and consistency of quality. Both can be difficult to achieve, as the format practically dictates that some segments be stronger than others or express a different voice. But when an anthology can achieve even one of those things, there’s the potential for real horror movie magic.

There are great anthologies made by one filmmaker, among them Mario Bava’s Black Sabbath, »

Interview with Tales Of Halloween’s Darren Lynn Bousman

19 October 2015 4:29 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

To celebrate the recent release of the horror anthology Tales of Halloween (now available on iTunes and all VOD platforms), Daily Dead spoke to the filmmakers behind the movie to discuss the project, their individual contributions and more.

Darren Lynn Bousman exploded onto the horror scene in 2005, taking over the Saw franchise with Saw II and turning the series into a household name at the helm of the first three sequels. He has since balanced studio projects with fiercely independent, more personal cult films like Repo! The Genetic Opera and The Devil’s Carnival. His contribution to Tales of Halloween, “The Night Billy Raised Hell,” stars Barry Bostwick as Satan pulling a series of dark pranks on Halloween night. It’s the lightest thing Bousman has made yet, and also the funniest.

While there has been comedy in some of the other films you’ve made, “The Night Billy Raised »

The CW Developing Friday The 13th TV Series

11 August 2015 8:52 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Pining for those long summer days and blood-splattered nights at Camp Crystal Lake? The CW President Mark Pedowitz revealed today that the network is looking to bring Jason Voorhees to the small screen with their in-the-works Friday the 13th TV series.

Deadline reports the news of the in-development Friday the 13th TV series, which would be a dramatic take on the 12-film franchise that kicked off in 1980 with Sean S. Cunningham's seminal slasher. Steve Mitchell and Craig Van Sickle (co-creators of the late 1990s series The Pretender) will write the new take on Crystal Lake.

The series is being coined as a "sophisticated, horror/crime thriller" that could follow "the ongoing quest of a detective’s search for his missing brother that is somehow tied to Jason Vorhees, a long thought dead serial killer who has now returned to wreak havoc in the new Crystal Lake."

Horror Anthology Series Channel Zero In Development at Syfy

30 June 2015 4:35 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

For better or worse, the Tales From the Darkside TV series reboot isn't moving forward at The CW, but Syfy is still working on bringing new horror anthology goods to the small screen with Channel Zero, a new project from Max Landis and Nick Antosca.

Coined as Channel Zero: Candle Cove, season one of Syfy's in-the-works horror anthology series will be based on a seriously unsettling 2009 creepypasta.com short story titled "Candle Cove."

Antosca, who is also penning the new Friday the 13th movie, is set to write the Channel Zero series with Landis slated to produce and overlook the creative efforts of the show along with Antosca. We have the official press release with full details below, and if you haven't read the "Candle Cove" story (written in faux forum posts style), you can read it by visiting:

Interview with Filmmaker Reyna Young

29 June 2015 11:10 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

By Jonathan Weichsel


I recently got to ask Filmmaker Reyna Young a few questions about her new film Forgotten Tales. You can read our conversation below.

Jw- What made you decide to make a horror anthology film as opposed to a narrative feature?

Ry- I've always had an anthology film in the back of my mind and wanted to make it a reality. I wrote my first comic issue of Forgotten Tales, Audition, years ago for Scattered Comics in Sacramento, and I will have a comic coming out based on the film and cannot wait for that. But I've always loved Creepshow and wanted to do my own anthology.

Jw- In Forgotten Tales there is a ghost story, a home invasion story, and a stalker story. Do you like to watch all different kinds of horror? What are some of your favorite kinds of horror to watch? What »

Hollywood is refusing to make George Romero's Stephen King adaptations

1 June 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Just now seeing this, but it seems a couple of interesting tidbits came out of George A. Romero's Wizard World St. Louis Q&A last week: 1. Nobody will make his Stephen King movie adaptations "...we haven't been able to sell 'The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon' to anybody. I have been working on that, and recently wrote another draft of that, but nobody wants to do that. We can't get anyone interested. That and 'Gerald's Game.' Those are the two I was interested in, but we can't get anyone." King and Romero famously collaborated on a number of films and TV shows back in the '80s and early '90s, including the 1983 anthology classic "Creepshow" and its 1987 sequel, the "Tales from the Darkside" TV series and film and the 1993 big-screen adaptation of King's "The Dark Half," which Romero wrote and directed. Romero adapted King's 1999 novel "The Girl »

Empire Of The Dead: George A. Romero Marvel comic coming to TV

22 May 2015 12:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

George A. Romero’s Marvel horror comic Empire Of The Dead is being adapted for the small screen by Demarest Films

We’re undoubtedly in the golden age of the comic book TV show, with everything from The Walking Dead to Daredevil - via The Flash, Lucifer, Powers and many more – now making the leap from the page to the screen.

The latest comic to be announced for small screen treatment is an interesting one to choose – George A. Romero’s Empire Of The Dead. The 15-issue run was entirely written by horror icon Romero, with illustrations by Alex Maleev, Dalibor Talajic and Andrea Mutti.

The comic – published by Marvel Comics – only came out last year, but Demarest Films (Tusk, A Most Wanted Man) have been quick to pick up the rights. Romero is believed to be writing the television version, with help from Peter Grunwald (a producer of Romero’s Land Of The Dead, »

The Real Creepshow III: Tales From the Darkside: The Movie at 25

21 May 2015 1:12 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

George Romero’s Tales From the Darkside television series was born from an inability to follow up Creepshow II. Warner Bros. still owned certain rights to the franchise, and Romero (along with producing partner Richard P. Rubinstein) came up with a way to circumvent the studio’s grasp on their William Gaines-influenced classics. Utilizing Rubinstein’s Laurel Entertainment,…

Monday’s season finale of The Originals (The CW, 8/7c) cues up the long-awaited — yet slightly unexpected — return of Claire Holt, the final battle with Dahlia and, according to executive producer Julie Plec, a whole mess of “emotional surprises.”

'Tales from the Darkside' TV Reboot Not Happening on The CW

8 May 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sad news for horror fans! The CW has officially passed on the Tales from the Darkside revival. A reboot of the popular 80s anthology series has been in development since November 2013. It is not exactly clear why The CW passed, and it's possible that the show could move to another network or digital streaming platform.

Joe Hill, the author of Horns, Locke & Key and the son of celebrated novelist Stephen King, wrote the pilot script, while serving as an executive producer alongside Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. The author had publicly raved about the pilot, and the revival had been gaining quite a lot of traction among fans. While the pilot is said to have been well executed, The CW was uncertain about the anthology format, even though season long anthologies have been working for FX with shows such as American Horror Story and Fargo.

'Flash'/'Arrow' gets a series order and a title - 'DC's Legends of Tomorrow'

7 May 2015 1:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The CW officially ordered three new dramas on Thursday afternoon, but the big news is the pick-up we all already new was coming. The "Flash"/"Arrow" spinoff has officially been ordered to series and after having been called various permutations on "untitled," it finally has a title: Say hello to "DC's Legends of Tomorrow."  I'll remind you of the details on "Legends of Tomorrow" in a minute, but The CW also ordered "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" and "Cordon" to series.  Since The CW already has 10+ returning shows on tap for the 2015-2016 season,  the network isn't announcing schedule timetables or episode counts yet. We'll see if that news comes at The CW's upfront presentation to advertisers next Thursday. Let's get details: "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" focuses on time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter, who has to recruit a rag-tag team of heroes and villains to help prevent an apocalypse that could impact not only Earth, »

Tales From The Darkside TV Series Reboot Not Moving Forward at The CW

7 May 2015 12:58 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The CW won't be returning to the place that's "not as brightly lit", as the network has apparently passed on the reboot of George A. Romero's 1980s anthology series, Tales From the Darkside.

According to CarterMatt.com, The CW will not be moving forward with their Tales From the Darkside reboot, with the show's anthology format and lack of a showrunner reportedly two of the reasons why the network passed on the series.

Joe Hill (Horns, NOS4A2, Locke & Key) wrote and executive produced the project and Kris Lemche (Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., Final Destination 3, Ginger Snaps, eXistenZ, Haven) was playing the lead role, a character named Newman who had knowledge of The Darkside and was going to appear in all (or most) episodes.

As fans will remember, the original Tales From the Darkside was a spinoff of Romero's Creepshow efforts. Like a 1980s cousin of The Twilight Zone, »
