15 Creepiest Buffy The Vampire Slayer Creatures

18 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Following on from our recent look at the very best of The X Files’ monstrous rogues gallery, we now turn to that other hit sci-fi/fantasy series of the 1990s – Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Buffy is fondly remembered for many things – great dialogue, charismatic characters, a lasting impression on nearly ever genre series since – but it’s often forgotten that the series could be scary too. With a premise based around a teenage hero who fights monsters from the pits of hell, Buffy features a bumper crop of dreaded demons and vicious vampires from across its 144 episodes. As the article mentioned above said, because Buffy was a show with a great sense of humour it would occasionally have a campy villain but that doesn’t stop a great number of others from being memorable monsters and, yes, indeed, creepy.

Even when removing the Big Bads from the equation – as this »

10 Insane X-Files Episodes‏ That Went Unmade

27 August 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fox

Basically everything good about the modern television renaissance began with The X-Files. Fox’s pioneering sci-fi, conspiracy theory, supernatural drama was a total risk when it began in 1993 – a risk that definitely paid off, as it became a ratings and cultural phenomenon, the latter of which lasts until this day. It also paved the way for more daring, experimental and downright weird TV programmes, the likes of which had never been seen before, and acted as a proving ground for writers who would go on to create and run many hit shows we like to have oh-so-serious discussions about around water coolers and internet forums to this day. Pretty impressive given the show was, more often than not, downright insane.

Seriously. You know the episode of The Simpsons where David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson guest star as FBI agents Mulder and Scully? That could practically be considered X-Files canon, »

Intruders Series Premiere Review: “She Was Provisional” (Season 1, Episode 1)

23 August 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Intruders marks BBC America’s arrival into the current climate of moody spook dramas. Produced by The X-FilesGlen Morgan, this mystical serial impresses from the jarring opening of its first episode. Why? Because it takes risks. If you’ve managed to avoid spoilers prior to watching the premiere, you may be inclined to agree that the show’s premise, even at the end of the episode… isn’t exactly clear. Therein lies the appeal and the mystery of Intruders. It gambles with expectations.

Dark and brooding from the outset, the show opens on an domestic incident that’s never fully explained, before jumping to a double homicide in suburban Seattle. It cuts to a married couple with a stilted relationship. Next up, there’s a nine-year-old girl troubled by visions. Then we see a bearded nerd delivering his conspiracy podcast out of a van. These seemingly isolated vignettes are »

Intruders Review: Secret Societies, Ghost Machines, and Unstoppable Assassins Abound in BBC America’s Body-Snatching Series

23 August 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

"In the beginning, there was death."  This is the mantra of BBC America's new series Intruders, and the show makes good on that promise from the outset.  The body-snatching drama based on British novelist Michael Marshall Smith’s work spans multiple genres, from the ever-popular police procedural, to the vogue of supernatural deaths and rebirths, with elements of classic crowd-pleasers like secret societies, conspiracies, and yes, even creepy children.  While Intruders is sure to draw comparisons to The X-Files (which makes sense considering that the hit show's producer Glen Morgan is both writer and executive producer of the new series), it's much less episodic in nature and skews more toward the cult series Twin Peaks than anything else, thanks in part to its Pacific Northwest setting and layered mystery spiraling around its central plot.   Hit the jump for my Intruders review, and for why you should welcome this show »

John Simm and James Frain Talk Intruders, the Unsettling Tone, Providing Answers by the End of Season 1, and More

23 August 2014 7:29 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

From writer/executive producer Glen Morgan (The X-Files), the BBC America drama series Intruders is about a secret society devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others.  A missing wife (Mira Sorvino), an assassin (James Frain) covering his crimes and a child (Millie Brown) on the run are all seemingly unrelated, but will intertwine to reveal a conspiracy that will lead former Lapd cop Jack Whelan (John Smith) question everything. During this exclusive interview with Collider, actors John Simm and James Frain talked about what attracted them to Intruders, having a brilliant novel to work from, trusting in their creative team, the show’s unsettling tone, that they will provide answers by the end of the season, and what’s to come for their characters.  Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers. Collider:  John, how did this come about? »

'Intruders': TV Review

22 August 2014 2:33 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Even before seeing a frame of Intruders, all the ideas sounded good. For starters, you have writer and creator Glen Morgan (The X-Files) getting to make a real X-Files-style show. That’s a good thing. And, since so many actors seem to be British these days, it seemed extra clever that this BBC America series, which takes place in the Pacific Northwest, chose to use a bunch of British actors but have them play Americans. Everybody gets it. So let’s play. And after having watched the first two hours of the eight-part limited series directed by Eduardo

Glen Morgan on Intruders, The X-Files, and Why the 22-Episode Season Needs to Die

21 August 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When one character meets a conspiracy theorist in Intruders, a new series debuting August 23 on BBC America, he looks at the wall and expresses disappointment: “What? No ‘I Want to Believe’ poster?” This was a wink to the X-Files roots of showrunner Glen Morgan, who adapted the program from the 2007 novel Intruders by British writer Michael Marshall Smith. “Well, for all of us, it’s kind of the elephant in the room,” laughed Morgan, in a recent interview with Vulture. The series slowly unravels a mystery involving a crew of immortal body-snatchers who can hop into the bodies of mere mortals and make their “hosts” seem a little out of sorts to their friends and family members. It’s an intriguing premise, and takes more than a few episodes to make sense, but like any great installment of The X-Files, not knowing exactly what’s going on is half the fun. »

The X-Files: 15 Creepiest Creatures

21 August 2014 8:29 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fox

The X-Files spent the better part of a decade scaring the socks off of television viewers by presenting a twisted menagerie of creeps and ghouls unlike any other show on television. Sure, Star Trek had the coolest alien races, and Buffy had some pretty awesome monsters, but most of them were pretty obviously just guys in rubber suits or with prosthetics glued to their faces growling a whole lot, and a lot of times they came off more campy than scary.

With a bigger budget than most of its closest competitors, The X-Files was able to branch out and come up with some incredibly unique creatures, aided by the fact that the show had a knack for hiring some generally unheard of yet extremely effective actors to portray them – a credit to their excellent casting department. Take the infamous Donnie Pfaster, for example. Though Pfaster had no real special power other than being absolutely, »

Sherlock meets Fargo, 24 vs Homeland: 12 fantasy TV crossovers

16 August 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The 'crossover episode' is surprisingly rare in television and only happens thanks to a particular set of circumstances; usually involving shared writers-producers, and both shows airing on the same network.

Do you remember when Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel's narratives would often criss-cross? We can look forward to more of the same when The CW's Arrow is joined by The Flash - and there's also a crossover special due for Fox's Family Guy and The Simpsons.

However, the vast majority of TV shows will never have crossover episodes because the circumstances aren't right, or because it's frankly a terrible idea.

But that doesn't stop people's imaginations running riot! Below are 12 very unlikely, or outright impossible, examples of past and present TV shows that could, or should, have combined forces... maybe.

Casting News and More Details on Helix Season 2

14 August 2014 1:32 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

By the time Season 1 ended, we were pretty disappointed in Syfy's "Helix," but some casting news for Season 2 has come in along with a few more details of what's ahead for the members of the Cdc so we thought we'd pass it on.

From the Press Release:

Syfy has announced that Steven Weber (pictured; "Wings," "Murder in the First") and Matt Long ("Mad Men," "Jack and Bobby") have joined the cast of its mysterious viral thriller "Helix."

The second season of "Helix" finds the doctors of the Centers for Disease Control, still haunted by the Narvik outbreak and the events that took place in Arctic Biosystems, investigating a deadly outbreak of a new disease on a Windjammer cruise ship. Their investigation leads them to a mysterious island inhabited by a cult with the hope of creating a utopian society.

Filming for the series’ 13-episode second season is currently under way in Montreal, »

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Adds 'World's Smallest Woman' to Cast (Photo)

14 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Well, the cast of this October's "American Horror Story: Freak Show" keeps getting more interesting. The newest addition to the cast, which recently announced Patti Labelle, is Jyoti Amge, a woman who holds the Guinness Book of World Recrods title for "world's smallest woman." Co-creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy announced the new hire on Twitter (via TV Line), complete with a photo of "American Horror Story" grand dame Jessica Lange holding the diminutive actress.

Amge, who previously appeared on an episode of "Body Shock" and guest starred on the Indian version of "Big Brother," stands slightly over two-feet-tall (hence Lange holding her like a little doll). She is joining a cast that includes Sarah Paulson (as the two-headed lady), Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, Gabourey Sidibe, Frances Conroy, Michael Chiklis and Wes Bentley. Plot details have yet to fully emerge, but at least some of it takes place »

Review: Sean Bean goes undercover in TNT's 'Legends'

13 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I will say this for "Legends," the new TNT drama (it debuts tonight at 9) starring Sean Bean: it does not attempt to hide Bean's native accent behind some bland non-regional American dialect, at least not in his main identity as FBI agent Martin Odom. Because Odom is a master of assuming undercover identities (the "legends" of the title), Bean gets to try on various semi-convincing accents the rest of the time, but at least "Legends" doesn't waste time trying to convince us that Ned Stark doesn't sound like Ned Stark when he's not playacting. The explanation for how a man with this accent ended up working for the FBI is utterly ridiculous, but it's also one line of dialogue that never has to be dealt with again, and it's an approach that I wish many more shows would take when hiring actors from the UK, Australia or New Zealand. »

The many screen deaths of Alan Dale

11 August 2014 1:07 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Heart-attacks, serial killers, gunshot wounds and Thalaron radiation. You name it, Alan Dale’s characters have been killed by it…

Warning: contains spoilers for Alan Dale's roles between 1985 and 2014. Listing them here would more or less defeat the object.

He didn’t die in The X-Files, nor in The West Wing. He got a little bit blown up in 24 and NCIS, and River Song sort of paralysed him in ER. Those were his good days.

Whenever the credits roll on a TV episode or film in which his character doesn’t end up kicking the bucket, it’s a good day for Alan Dale. If he can keep up his current trend of not dying on Once Upon A Time and Dominion then his ratio of role demises to survivals may just start to even out.

Before that happens, join us in a celebration of New Zealand’s answer »
