‘Van Helsing’: Neil Labute Challenges Expectations With Bloody, Surprising New Syfy Series

21 July 2016 6:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

“This is a show about pacifists.”

So claimed executive producer Simon Barry after fans at Comic-Con watched a particularly gruesome scene from the upcoming Syfy series “Van Helsing.”

Clearly, nothing could be further from the truth.

But what’s truly shocking about “Van Helsing” has little to do with blood (even though there’s a lot of it). Neil Labute is actively bucking expectations fans may have regarding vampires.

The award-winning playwright — who’s making his debut as a showrunner on this one-hour drama — decided early on things would be different with this interpretation of Bram Stoker’s age-old vampire hunter. For one, he would be a she. Syfy’s “Van Helsing” tracks Vanessa Helsing as she learns to deal with a “secret power” that helps her oust nightwalkers, and actress Kelly Overton couldn’t have drawn from a better source.

“The biggest inspiration I drew from was Sigourney Weaver in Aliens, »

Van Helsing Remake Is Inspired by Mad Max Says Writer

19 July 2016 12:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, production began on Universal's The Mummy reboot, which will be the first full-fledged adventure in Universal's monster universe. We got our first glimpse at this unique world in a post credit sequence for 2014's Dracula Untold, where Luke Evans' title character is transported to present day. But, aside from The Mummy, we don't know which project is next in this sprawling universe. One of the movies being included is Van Helsing, and today we have some new details from writer Eric Heisserer.

Eric Heisserer came aboard to write the script alongside The Mummy writer Jon Spaihts back in November, but the project still doesn't have a director yet and there is very little we know about the story. Eric Heisserer recently spoke with Hitfix, while promoting the new thriller Lights Out, which he co-wrote, where he revealed that this version of Van Helsing was inspired by another iconic character. »

The New ‘Van Helsing’ Movie Was Inspired By Mad Max

19 July 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

There’s an entire generation of moviegoers who only know the character of Van Helsing from the abysmal 2004 movie starring Hugh Jackman, and that should be a recognized as one of our great international shames. Introduced in the pages of Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel Dracula, Dr. Abraham Van Helsing is one of the horror genre’s […]

'Van Helsing' screenwriter: Mad Max was our inspiration for the character's new iteration

18 July 2016 3:54 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Not much is yet known about Universal’s Marvel Cinematic Universe-style Monster reboots, which have been racking up quite the cadre of A-list stars over the last several months. While shooting on The Mummy starring Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella is already complete and two of the other installments -- The Wolf Man and another untitled monster project -- have been given release dates, there are a total of six other films in the series that remain in some phase of development.  One of those developing projects is Van Helsing, which is being scripted by Eric Heisserer and Jon Spaihts and will serve as a big-screen vehicle for the eponymous monster-hunter who has been portrayed in various incarnations by Peter Cushing (Hammer’s Dracula series), Laurence Olivier (1979’s Dracula), Anthony Hopkins (Bram Stoker’s Dracula), Christopher Plummer (Dracula 2000) and Hugh Jackman, who embodied the character in Stephen Sommers' »

On this day: Lady Jane, Devil Dolls, Bergman Wedding, Phase Three

10 July 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Helena Bonham Carter & Cary Elwes star in Lady Jane (1986)On this day in history as it relates to the movies

1553 Lady Jane Grey takes the throne in England. Her reign is just nine days long and Helena Bonham Carter plays her in her feature film debut (filmed just before A Room With a View though it was released second)

1856 Nikola Tesla, famed inventor and futurist is born in the Austrian empire. He's later played by David Bowie in Christopher Nolan's The Prestige (2006) but isn't it strange that he has never received his own major biopic given his fame and eccentricity and pop culture relevances (bands named after him, characters based on him, etcetera)?

1871 Marcel Proust, French novelist is born.

 1925 The "Monkey Trial" in which a man is accused of teaching evolution in science class, begins in Tennessee. It's later adapted into a famous play and the Stanley Kramer film »

Syfy's "Van Helsing" Gets A New Poster

7 July 2016 9:01 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

We're getting a cinematic reboot of "Van Helsing" in a few years, but before that SyFy will premiere their take on the heroic vampire slayer from Bram Stoker's "Dracula". Set in the future, Kelly Overton stars as Vanessa Van Helsing who is resurrected into a world overrun by vampires.

Chad Oakes, Co-Chairman of Nomadic Pictures says: "Van Helsing represents a new mythology in sci-fi by challenging traditional vampire rules. The series is unique in exploring a world completely dominated by vampires, while the human characters have to learn the importance of working together to ensure their survival."

Jonathan Scarfe, Christopher Heyerdahl, Paul Johansson, David Cubitt and Tim Guinee also star in the Neil Labute-produced series which premieres this Fall. Check out the key art below:

Therapy For A Vampire – Review

23 June 2016 11:59 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Summer just officially started just a few days ago, so Halloween is months away. Perhaps a great way to get us cooled off, to put us in a Fall state of mind, would be to pay a visit to one of the oldest horror movie icons: the vampire. Everyone’s aware of how scary those fanged fiends can be, but you may have forgotten how funny they are (intentionally, of course). Movie audiences have emitted nervous laughter ever since  Max Schreck emerged from the shadows in the silent classic Nosferatu. And certainly there are bits (and bites) of humor (mostly comic relief supporting players) in 1931’s Dracula and Mark Of The Vampire, both with Bela Lugosi. It wasn’t until 1948 that he was in an all out farce (though the Count is never lampooned) in Abbott And Costello Meet Frankenstein. After Hammer Studios brought back (in full gory color) the bloodsuckers ten years later, »

If you love horror movies, this magnificent clip will make you appreciate them even more

16 June 2016 12:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I can take or leave most fan-made montage videos, but this 12-minute "History of Horror" clip edited by Diego Carrera is a real standout as these things go. Over the duration, Carrera takes us on a 121-year journey through the genre that gave us such masterworks as Bride of Frankenstein, Psycho, The Shining and 28 Days Later, using one movie a year to illustrate the trajectory from early silents like Edison Studios' Frankenstein to modern-day classics like Jennifer Kent's The Babadook. It's pretty fascinating to watch the genre evolve in just 10 minutes and 30 seconds of screen time (the latter minute-and-a-half is taken up by credits), highlighting both the massive changes that have taken place over the years and the foundational qualities that remain in place more than a century later. The only tiny quibble I have is that for the year 1992, Carrera chose to highlight Francis Ford Coppola's visually stunning but dramatically inert 1992 Dracula adaptation over Bernard Rose's smart, underappreciated urban legend flick Candyman -- but, of course, that's an issue of personal taste and not a knock on the video's quality. This is, overall, a superbly-edited piece with a pitch-perfect score to boot (if you were wondering, the track used is "Camino" by Mexican electronica artist Murcof). Thanks to Bloody Disgusting for bringing the video to my attention. »

Johnny Depp and His Hollywood Vampires Band Visit Dracula's Castle

4 June 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Johnny Depp continued his Romanian travels on Saturday, traveling with his band Hollywood Vampires to visit the home of the first vampire: Dracula. Depp, Alice Cooper and Joe Perry made a trip to Bran Castle, located in the Carpathian Mountains on the boarder of Transylvania - about 150 miles north of Bucharest. The castle is known worldwide as "Dracula's Castle" after being the only castle that fits the description of the home of the popular vampire in Bram Stoker's 1897 Gothic horror novel. It is more precisely the believed home of Vlad Tepes, the inspiration for the character. Vlad was depicted »

Dracula 'Count'-down: Ranking the Good, the Vlad and the Funny from Supernatural, Buffy and More!

29 May 2016 2:13 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Before Season 3 of Penny Dreadful got underway, we might have said that the character of Dracula had been done to death. But Showtime‘s monster mash (Sundays, 10/9c) has so artfully resurrected the blood-sucker that we have to admit that there’s still life — or at least undeath — in Bram Stoker’s infamous creation.

VideosPenny Dreadful Video: Behind the Scenes in the Wild West… Er, Spain

Christian Camargo, once Dexter‘s Ice Truck Killer, plays the legendary vampire with irresistible charm when he’s pretending to be mild-mannered zoologist Alexander Sweet — and bone-chilling menace when the mask drops, revealing his minions’ Master. »

Today is Peter Cushing’s 103rd Birthday! Here Are His Ten Best Roles

26 May 2016 5:44 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, Michael Haffner, Sam Moffitt, and Tom Stockman

Peter Cushing, born on this day in 1913, was one of the most respected and important actors in the horror and fantasy film genres. To his many fans, the British star, who died in 1994, was known as ‘The Gentle Man of Horror’ and is recognized for his work with Hammer Films which began in the late 1950’s, but he had numerous memorable roles outside of Hammer. A topnotch actor who was able to deliver superb performances on a consistent basis, Peter Cushing also had range.  He could play both the hero and the villain with ease.

Here, according to We Are Movie Geeks, are Peter Cushing’s ten best roles:

Dr. Maitland

During the 1960s, Amicus Studios had a knack for borrowing from the pool of Hammer Studios actors and filmmakers to make their own Hammer-inspired films.  While »

Why the 'Mummy' reboot won't be as terrifying as Russell Crowe claims

9 May 2016 6:14 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

During a recent roundtable interview to promote his new buddy drama The Nice Guys co-starring Ryan Gosling, Russell Crowe confirmed that he would be playing Dr. Jekyll in director Alex Kurtzman's upcoming reboot of The Mummy, and furthermore claimed that the big-budget film is -- contrary to perceptions in the industry -- "designed to scare the shit out of you." Sounds great! So why don't I believe it? Anyone who has been paying attention over the last couple of years knows that Universal is planning a Marvel Cinematic Universe-style crossover film series centering on the studio's classic monsters (Dracula, The Mummy, The Invisible Man and the Bride of Frankenstein, et al.), with The Mummy set to be first out of the gate next summer. As Drew and I agreed on last week's episode of my weekly horror chat series Nightmare Fuel (embedded above and below), this approach is troubling, »

Withnail And I Actor Richard E. Grant Joins The Cast Of The Wolverine 3 In A Villainous Role

26 April 2016 6:05 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Fox and director James Mangold really are playing this one close to their chests. Earlier in the month we found out that Narcos star Boyd Holbrook would play a mysterious villain in the follow up to The Wolverine, and now THR reports that he'll be joined by Richard E. Grant (Withnail And I, Doctor Who, Bram Stoker's Dracula) as another baddie. All we have to go on is that he'll be playing a "mad scientist type". There's a chance, of course, that this will turn out to be Doctor Cornelius, who worked on the original Weapon X programme and returned for the Death of Wolverine comic arc - but there are many other possibilities.  The Wolverine 3 will also star Patrick Stewart as Professor Xavier, and is set to hit theaters on March 3 next year. »
