Edward Furlong and Tracey Gold Try to Survive an Arachnoquake

27 December 2011 11:16 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

New Orleans survived the worst hurricane of a generation, but can it survive an Arachnoquake? Not just an earthquake... an earthquake that unleashes giant albino spiders from deep within the bowels of the earth. Can Carol Seaver, John Connor, and Alfalfa save the Big Easy from an earth-rattling, eight-legged apocalypse?

Syfy sent out a press release Tuesday regarding the just-wrapped production Arachonoquake starring Tracey Gold, formerly of “Growing Pains”, currently on “Starving Secrets with Tracey Gold”, and soon to be seen on the new season of “Celebrity Wife Swap”, and Edward Furlong of Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Pet Sematary 2 fame.

Ethan Philips (Neelix on "Star Trek: Voyager") and Bug Hall round out the cast. The press release bills actor Bug Hall as one of the stars of The Little Rascals. If you’re like me, your first reaction to that would be, “Aren’t they all dead?” I was »

Steve Niles' Remains Preview: Zombies Come to Chiller Tonight

Steve Niles' Remains Preview: Zombies Come to Chiller Tonight

Tonight, Chiller brings the TV movie version of Steve Niles' Remains to your screens.  Niles is perhaps best known for creating the graphic novel 30 Days of Night.  Remains is based on another graphic novel by the writer.

The set-up for Remains is your average zombie back-story: in an effort to destroy all nuclear capabilities, a "peace bomb" is detonated in the Nevada desert.  Naturally, everything goes horribly wrong. Instead of destroying nuclear weapons, the bomb turns normal people into flesh-eating zombies.  Some people, however, were inside lead-lined enclosures when the bomb went off and they remained human.  The remaining people eventually team up in a vacant casino in Reno and try to fight off the horde of zombies in order to survive.

Remains marks Chiller's first original movie.  It stars Grant Bowler (True Blood, Ugly Betty), Lance Reddick (Fringe, Lost, The Wire »

Review: "Steve Niles' Remains" Is Your Typical Zombie Apocalypse ... With One Twist

16 December 2011 8:33 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

What is it about the zombie genre that's made it such a durable horror favorite? Why are the undead so much more accessible than Freddie or Jason or any of the other iconic villains?

Obviously it's because, unless we're nubile virgins, we don't stand a chance of escaping those monsters with our jugulars intact. But zombies are a different story. Deep down, we all believe that we can survive the Zombie Apocalypse, no matter how slutty we are, as long as we can run ... and wield a sawed-off shotgun.

The Chiller Network's entry in the zombie genre premieres tonight, with the adaptation of the graphic novel Remains, by Steve Niles (who's best known for 30 Days Of Night).

So what does Remains have that sets it apart? It's certainly not production values (it's on par with a Syfy Original Movie), or story (four survivors in a Reno casino try to keep »

Steve Niles’ Remains: New Pics and the Prequel for Chiller’s Original Movie

12 December 2011 4:00 PM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

As we told you back in October, Steve Niles’ Remains will be Chiller‘s first original movie, and now it’s nearly here. It premieres this Friday, December 16 at 10/9c, and we have some pics, a summary, and a prequel to share with you. We’ll have a review of this show, and excerpts from a Q&A session with Steve Niles, later in the week.

Although it’s destined to be compared with AMC‘s The Walking Dead, the zombies in Remains are very different, as you will quickly see if you click on to the 11-minute prequel that Chiller has very kindly posted on its website. Seriously, check it out, but Not while you’re eating. It is totally gross, but it also has at least one laugh-out-loud moment. If this is a taste – sorry – of what’s to come in the movie, this production is going to be Very entertaining. »

Did you remember to check out the online-only prequel webisode for Chiller TV's Remains entitled Remains: Road to Reno that premiered today? If not, be sure to head over to Chillertv.com and do so.

Niles recently conducted a roundtable conference call in advance of Remains' December 16th premiere on Chiller TV, and the network was kind enough to share the transcript with us. Read on for a look inside the mind of this creative genius as he discusses his role in the production, what he looks for when someone approaches him about adapting his work, his preference between vampires and zombies, and lots more!

Alexandre Aja Grows Horns

8 December 2011 4:02 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Since his crazy Gallic breakout Switchblade Romance, he's been all about the Hollywood horror remakes: The Hills Have Eyes, Mirrors, Piranha (he was even talking to Paramount about Pet Sematary for a while). But Alexandre Aja is now finally set to break that cycle, since he's signed on to direct Horns, based on the novel by Joe Hill.A dark fantasy about jealousy, murder, treehouses, rebirth by fire, and The Rolling Stones, Horns revolves around Ig Perrish, who wakes up one morning with a terrible hangover, and the titular protruburances growing out of his head. Hate when that happens. He also finds that people are suddenly compelled to confide in him their innermost thoughts and secrets, and that he can influence their behaviour, as long as he's nudging them towards actions they truly desire. All of which proves useful in unravelling the mystery surrounding the violent death of his fractious girlfriend Merrin, »

8 December 2011 3:36 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

This eleven-minute webisode, produced exclusively for Chillertv.com, will debut online Friday, December 9th, and will give viewers a glimpse at the origins of Remains’ post-apocalyptic zombie invasion.

Bradley Cooper Talks Flying the Coop of The Crow Remake

6 December 2011 5:05 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The Crow is a film property that has to be truly cursed. Everything from tragic accidental deaths to lawyers have kept these movies from happening. Star Bradley Cooper was attached to the latest redux, and he, too, left. Why, you ask? We'll let him answer that!

"There really weren't that many ups and downs," the actor tells Empire Online. "We were talking about doing it because of Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, who I was such a massive fan of. And timing didn't work out. Then he just dropped out of it also so I don't know what they're going to do."

To quote the classic Stephen King tale Pet Sematary ... Sometimes dead is better.

Top 10 Stephen King Movie Adaptations

24 November 2011 9:19 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Stephen King is undeniably one of the most recognised household names in modern literature. A prolific idea machine, King’s schlocky, pulp-style delivery and liberty-taking use of prose is an instant turn-off for some. But it can’t be denied that many of the concepts that he dreams up are truly touched by greatness.

There are a ridiculous number of varying movie/TV adaptations from throughout the length and breadth of Stephen King’s career; believe me, I counted them. In all, I found evidence that no less than eighty-four various projects (from shorts to feature films and the gamut in-between) have been adapted out of Stephen King’s novelizations and short stories. And chances are you’ve seen a good chunk of them, even if you’re not aware of it.

Of course they’re not all great, not by a long shot. Some of them are downright drivel (the T. »

NBC Readies Darker Reboot of ‘The Munsters’

19 November 2011 4:13 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

 

As far as properties ripe for a reboot, the classic 1960s sitcom The Munsters has to rank pretty high – and with NBC finally going ahead with a script from the creator of Wonderfalls and Pushing Daisies, the peacock network seems to think so as well.

Running on CBS from 1964-1966, The Munsters told the story of a clan of classic movie monsters (i.e. vampires, werewolves and Frankenstein’s monster) who, despite their outward appearance, were a normal, somewhat outgoing, middle-class family. The show was equal parts a send up of the spooky characters as it was other family sitcoms like Leave it to Beaver.

Though ratings were far from stellar during its two-year run, the show gained in popularity once it found its way to syndication – leaving future Pet Sematary star Fred ...

American Horror Story Review: Murder House

16 November 2011 9:04 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

You might think this week's American Horror Story was merely a continuation of the journey we've been on with the Harmons all season, as they live in, and fall prey to, their new life in a Los Angeles haunted home.

But "Open House" shattered what remained of our ignorance of the resident via glorious illumination of the birth of the mansion and some of its inhabitants. The more we learn about the Harmons, and particularly of Ben's nefarious nature, the more we come to realize this is exactly where they are meant to be.

I never imagined Dylan McDermott's "O" face would be so unattractive. As it was happening, I chalked it up to Vivien's dream that Ben was so seen in such a poor light. The sex fantasy portion of the series hasn't been my cup of tea, and we got a glimpse of her impregnator again, the rubber man. »

Stephen King's Rose Madder Gets Adaptation By In America Writer Naomi Sheridan

8 November 2011 4:00 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Stephen King has always been big business for Hollywood, and that hasn't changed even as the writer cruises through his '60s. As of this story, there are something like a dozen film and television projects in the works based on his material. Stuff like The Dark Tower and Under the Dome have been generating most of the chatter, but there are also pending remakes such as Firestarter, Carrie, and Pet Sematary. But the King spree isn't sticking solely to the author's best-known books. According to a story in Variety, there's also an adaptation of King's novel Rose Madder in the works, and it's being written by In America writer Naomi Sheridan. Published back in 1995, Rose Madder centers on a woman who flees her cop husband after many years of abuse. Settling into a new city, she finds work, begins dating, and generally sets about trying to build a new »
