Fritz Weaver Has Passed Away

28 November 2016 6:57 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Some very sad news is making the rounds today, as it has been reported that Fritz Weaver has passed away at the age of 90.

News of Fritz Weaver's passing was confirmed by Weaver's son-in-law, Bruce Ostler, according to The New York Times. In addition to winning a Tony award for his performance in 1970's Child’s Play, Weaver accumulated an impressive number of acting credits within the horror and sci-fi genres—on both the big and small screens—throughout his career.

Stephen King fans likely remember Weaver as Dexter Stanley from "The Crate" segment of Creepshow, where he starred alongside Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, and the creepy creature unleashed from its prison.

Weaver also left his mark on a number of anthology series, including The Twilight Zone, Monsters, Tales From the Darkside, Night Gallery, and Tales of the Unexpected, in addition to appearances on Friday the 13th: The Series and The X-Files. »

31 October 2016 5:20 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Director Griff Furst’s Cold Moon screens Friday, Nov. 4 at 7:00pm at The Tivoli Theater as part of this year’s St. Louis International Film Festival. Furst and Cold Moon screenwriter Jack Snyder will be in attendance. Ticket information can be found Here.

The supernatural crime thriller Cold Moon tells the story of Nathan Redfield (Josh Stewart), an arrogant man of great wealth who has either lost his mind or is being tormented by terrible forces beyond even the most paranoid of imaginings. In a sleepy Southern town, the Larkins have suffered a terrible tragedy, but the family is now about to face an even more grievous trial. As traffic lights blink an eerie warning, a ghostly apparition prowls the streets, and corpses erupt from the graves of the local cemetery in an implacable march of terror. And beneath the murky surface of the river, a shifting, vaguely human shape slowly takes form, »

Newswire: Horror streaming service Shudder gets every episode of Tales From The Darkside

27 September 2016 5:30 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Lots of streaming services have some horror offerings, but they’re usually limited to recent stuff that wasn’t very successful or older titles that even the people starring in them never heard of. Thankfully, though, there’s the AMC-backed Shudder service, which is completely dedicated to movies that are spooky and/or scary. With Halloween coming soon, Shudder has now branched out into the TV world by picking up the exclusive rights to every episode of George Romero’s ‘80s horror anthology series Tales From The Darkside.

'Stranger Things' Season 2: Here's a guide to 1984 in pop culture

1 September 2016 3:33 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Just in case you've been living in the Upside Down, let me get you up to speed: Stranger Things Season 2 is officially happening. And as revealed by the show's unreasonably-attractive creators the Duffer Brothers, the new episodes will be set a year after the events of the first season, which would place the characters squarely in the latter days of 1984 (Season 1 took place between November and December of 1983). While that's not a whole lot later, it's still enough time for a massive number of pop-culture and consumer products to have been introduced in the interim, from film to TV to music to technology. So what, pray tell, will Mike, Dustin, Lucas, Nancy, Jonathan and Steve (but not Barb, obvs) be using, watching, wearing, reading and listening to in the new season that wouldn't have been available to them in the prior timeline because they didn't exist yet? For those curious »

Friday The 13th TV Series Not Moving Forward at The CW

11 August 2016 12:27 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The CW won’t be heading to Camp Crystal Lake after all, as it has been confirmed that the previously in-development Friday the 13th series is no longer moving forward at the network.

Initially in development at The CW since last year, the Friday the 13th TV series, tentatively titled Crystal Lake Chronicles, was discussed at the Television Critics Association (TCA) presentation in Beverly Hills. According to EW, here’s what CW president Mark Pedowitz had to say about the series, which showed promise with its pilot but was not viewed as their best option for a longterm show:

The bottom line is we felt we had stronger things to go with, and we didn’t go forward with it. It was well-written, it was darker than we wanted it to be, and we didn’t believe it had sustainability … We didn’t believe that it was a sustainable script, »

The Law Is A Ass # 392: Bob’s Brain Has A Darkside

15 July 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I am reminded of a story my father told me. What story, I’ll get to that shortly. First I’ve got to tell you about another story.

That other story is “Sleepwalker” from Tales From the Darkside# 1. For those of you who, unlike me, aren’t as old as Pangean dirt, there was a syndicated TV show of that same name combined back when Hector was a pup, and I was in my 30s. A half-hour anthology show featuring horror, science-fiction, and fantasy stories that usually climaxed with a twist ending. The show wasn’t bad, but I had a problem with it. I was raised on The Twilight Zone and EC comics. I cut my teeth on twist endings. For me the endings of Tales From the Darkside had as much twist as a pretzel rod.

It Came From The Tube: Tales From The Crypt (1989 – 1996)

3 July 2016 9:50 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“Hello, Boils and Ghouls” was a typical opening salvo from The Crypt Keeper, the wraparound host (and animatronic cadaver) of HBO’s inventive, creepy and more often than not, mordantly funny salute to the EC Comics of yesteryear, Tales from the Crypt (1989 – 1996). Throughout seven seasons, viewers were subjected to as much gore, nudity, and twisted morality as we could handle. God (or his underworld counterpart) bless premium cable.

Tales ran from June 10th, 1989 to July 19th, 1996, for a grand total of 93 episodes. That’s a lot of grue to ingest, and until ratings started to slip by Season Six, horror fans found it easy to lap up. And as with any anthology series, mileage varies and quality flickers to and fro – but Tales from the Crypt’s success is anchored in the very fact that it was allowed to live, and thrive, for as long as it did.

TV Horror Comes Home When Friday The 13th: The Complete TV Series and Tales From The Darkside: The Complete Series Arrives This September!

28 June 2016 1:23 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

September 6th looks to be quite the day for classic TV horror. Thanks to the crew over at CBS DVD and Paramount, both Friday The 13th: The Complete Series and Tales From The Darkside: The Complete Series are hitting DVD in interesting new packing. Personally, I’m a fan of both, and with last year’s Awesome Curious Goods: Behind the Scenes of Friday The 13th: The Series book by Alyse Wax being such an in depth refresher, it’ll be cool to revisit the episodes that stood out in that great read.

CW's "Friday the 13th" TV Series Cancelled?

20 April 2016 9:34 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Last year came word that The CW network had picked up a new "Friday the 13th" TV series which "The Pretender" creators Steven Long Mitchell and Craig W. Van Sickle would pen.

That series would follow a detective who has been searching for his missing brother, a disappearance believed to tie into the re-emergence of Jason Voorhees,who was long thought to be dead but is know wreaking havoc once again in Crystal Lake.

Now a new report at Bloody-Disgusting claims The CW has halted plans to resurrect Jason Voorhees. They say the network wasn't onboard with that idea:

"So what happened? According to my source, the network didn't jibe with the concept for the series. What was the concept? Apparently, that's the problem. After months of development, there was still no real concept for the series, causing network execs to re-think bringing Friday the 13th (back) to the small screen. »

Friday the 13th TV Series Canceled at The CW?

20 April 2016 2:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in August 2015, we reported that The CW Network has picked up a new Friday the 13th TV series, with The Pretender creators Steven Long Mitchell and Craig W. Van Sickle coming aboard to write the pilot script. We haven't heard anything about the project since then, but with the network's upfront presentation coming next month, don't expect to hear about this series moving forward any further. Today we have a new report that claims The CW has halted plans to bring Jason Voorhees to the network.

We first reported on the series back in 2014, when Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films and Crystal Lake Entertainment signed on to develop the series, with special effects artists Bill Basso (Terminator 2: Judgment Day) and Jordu Schell (Avatar) coming aboard to write the script. That incarnation of the show was said to feature Jason Voorhees through multiple time periods. When Steven Long Mitchell and »
