Idw to Release Joe Hill’s Tales From The Darkside Scriptbook this October

12 May 2016 11:24 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

After The CW passed on moving forward with Joe Hill’s reimagining of the 1980s horror anthology series, Tales From the Darkside, Idw Publishing announced that Hill’s ideas for the show would be collected in a comic book series, and now the company has announced that they will release Tales From The Darkside: Scripts by Joe Hill this fall.

Set to hit shelves in October, the Tales From The Darkside scriptbook will allow readers to see exactly what Hill had planned for the reboot of George A. Romero’s anthology series.

The collection will include three scripts written by Hill for the reboot. Each script will come with artwork from Charles Paul Wilson III, who previously worked with Hill on Wraith, the prequel graphic novel to N0S4A2.

Penned by Hill and illustrated by artist Gabriel Rodríguez (who collaborated with Hill on the acclaimed Locke & Key comic »

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 »

Tribeca ’16: Holidays Review

15 April 2016 7:33 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Holidays review: Screening at Tribeca Film Festival as part of the Midnight programme we review new horror anthology Holidays.

Ever since V/H/S snuck its way onto the scene there has been a resurgence of anthology movies within the horror genre. We’ve had another two V/H/S movies as well as two A, B, C’s of Death, a Christmas themed one – A Christmas Horror Story, and Tales of Halloween. Now comes Holidays, a film that builds on the idea of the latter mentioned films, but expands from just Christmas and Halloween to encompass all our favourite holidays. Here’s our Holidays review, straight from Tribeca.

Holidays review

Many other anthology films, right back to the likes of Tales from the Darkside: The Movie and The Twilight Zone Movie, feature an overarching plot that wraps around our series of short films. This decision has been many »

Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez reviving Tales from the Darkside for Idw

19 February 2016 3:18 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Idw Publishing has announced that Locke & Key creators Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez are reuniting for a new four-issue series that will reimagine the cult classic horror anthology TV series Tales from the Darkside.

“This is the show that could’ve been,” states Hill. “The original Tales from the Darkside was a fun, bleak little spin on the Twilight Zone style anthology. My idea is to give readers a little more. Every story is meant to stand alone, but gradually, you will come to see how they all connect, to tell a single larger story.”

“The universe that Joe is building here is wholly unique while still doing justice to the original show,” adds Tales from the Darkside editor Michael Benedetto. “And having Gabriel collaborating with him again is the best we could have possibly hoped for. These guys have a proven track record, and this series will only serve »

Tales From The Darkside Comic Book Series from Joe Hill to Debut this June

19 February 2016 3:15 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Last year, The CW ordered a pilot for a rebooted Tales From the Darkside show, with author Joe Hill writing and executive producing the new take on George A. Romero’s beloved 1980s anthology series. A few months later, the network passed on the project, but Joe Hill is now re-teaming with Locke & Key artist Gabriel Rodríguez and Idw Publishing for a four-issue Tales From the Darkside comic book series.

The modern day-set Tales from the Darkside comic book series debuts this June and will feature standalone stories that are ultimately linked together in one all-encompassing arc. Rather than adapt specific episodes of the TV show, the comic books will instead be inspired by their source material and will have a meta vibe as well.

The comics are written by Hill and brought to life on the paneled page by artist Rodríguez, who previously worked with Hill on the acclaimed »

Abe Vigoda, ‘Barney Miller’ and ‘Godfather’ Actor, Dies at 94

26 January 2016 11:19 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Actor Abe Vigoda, best known for his roles as mobster Tessio in “The Godfather” and as Detective Sgt. Fish in TV’s “Barney Miller” and a spinoff series in which he starred, has died. He was 94 and died in New Jersey of natural causes, his daughter, Carol Vigoda Fuchs told the Associated Press.

The tall character actor with the characteristically slouched shoulders and hangdog face became something of a pop culture figure due to repeated false reports of his demise, which became the subject of jokes. Reflecting his somewhat odd celebrity was the existence of a punk rock band named Abe Vigoda; his recurring appearances in the late 2000s on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien”; and the existence of a website named Isabevigodadead.com, which for years consisted simply of a blank page with the word No.
