Before the door slams slut on 2015, hopefully hitting it in the ass on the way out, here’s a prediction: 2016 will be 1992 in different clothes.
Consider the evidence: there’s a new Batman movie, The X Files is back on TV and Clinton is running for President. Also, the horror movies slated for release are mostly sequels and remakes.
1992 gave us such culturally enriching experiences as House IV, Prom Night III: The Last Kiss and the awesome Witchcraft 4: The Virgin Heart, and while 2016’s line-up isn’t quite that bad, it still leaves much to be desired. Among the least desirable titles is a remake of The Blob, from the director of the When A Stranger Calls remake.
Amityville 1992: It’s About Time was the 6th film in the haunted house franchise, and guess what? Not only is another Amityville film due in 2016, but if »

Rob Kazinsky has certainly come a long way since his days on the much parodied, long-running UK soap opera, EastEnders. After several years spent playing supporting characters in notable projects, such as True Blood, Pacific Rim and Hot Pursuit, he has finally landed his first leading role – in a brand new sci-fi/drama series for Fox, titled Second Chance.
The premise of the show is something of a mixture of classic sci-fi themes, police procedurals, and family drama. The elderly Jimmy Pritchard is a retired, disgraced La county sheriff, renowned for corruption. Despised by his family, he is murdered during a break-in at the home of his son – but two “tech billionaires” resurrect him as one of their science projects. They find that, in returning, he is much younger and has strength and stamina five times greater than that of the average adult male. This realization leads to the idea »

Frank Spotnitz is no stranger to altered realities. As one of the core writer/producers on “The X-Files,” Spotnitz was one of the people who introduced millions of avid viewers to mutants, bizarre killers and ominous plots that may have involved alien visitation.
Spotnitz’s new show, “The Man in the High Castle,” is firmly anchored to Earth-bound reality — but it’s a grim reality in which North America, having lost World War 2, has been split up by the Axis powers and its populace must contend with an enormous array of discriminatory and oppressive policies. In Spotnitz’s version of the classic Philip K. Dick novel “The Man in the High Castle,” the forbidden books that characters exchange have been replaced by copies of an underground film, but the themes of subversion, rebellion and compromise remain in play.

"The 'X-Files' was not only a seminal show for both the studio and the network, it was a worldwide phenomenon that shaped pop culture – yet remained a true gem for the legions of fans who embraced it from the beginning. Few shows on television have drawn such dedicated fans »
