Daily Dead’s 2014 Halloween Horrors TV Calendar

30 September 2014 7:44 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

One of my fondest memories growing up as a young horrorphile was catching as many scary movies and fright-filled specials as I could during the month of October in order to prepare for Halloween night. With the hundreds of channel options out there for viewers these days, I thought it might be fun to break down where genre fans can catch various movies, specials and even Halloween-themed cartoons over the next 31 days so that you can start planning out your viewings in advance.

Here are some of the thrills and chills coming to your televisions this October. Please keep in mind that full schedules have not been announced everywhere yet, so we’ll be sure to update you guys with any additions to the calendar. All times listed are Et/Pt:

Wednesday, October 1st

2:00pm – The Dead (SyFy)

4:30pm – Dead Season (SyFy)

6:30pm – Halloween II (2009) (SyFy)

How 1991's The Addams Family nearly got derailed

26 September 2014 3:06 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Addams Family looked a seamless project to bring to the screen. But the film, starring Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston, was anything but.

When we talk about difficult film productions, the same names seem to come through. Apocalypse Now and The Deer Hunter, for instance, are productions with well-told stories of how those behind the scenes went to proverbial hell and back. In more recent times, most of us are more than familiar with the hell that those behind World War Z went through to get it to the screen.

What I though would be a bit different though is take a generally very successful film, and dig a bit deeper to see if there was a troubled story there. One where behind the scenes issues are rarely talked about. Given that I've come to this piece straight after writing about 1991's movies, here, I settled on The Addams Family. »

ABC Family’s 16th Annual 13 Nights Of Halloween Scares Up Fun Starting Oct. 19

18 September 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

I have to admit that I’m a fan of ABC Family in general, and there aren’t many of their original shows that have let me down, but their holiday efforts are among my favorite television “events,” and it’s closing in on Halloween again. The 16th Annual 13 Nights of Halloween is starting in a month and a day, and you should make sure you have your calendar marked with all the opportunities.

It is slightly repetitive, and a little Tim Burton heavy (if there is such a thing for an event centered around Halloween), but the programming has become a real tradition, and there are three shows with Halloween specials, and a reality prank program in the mix. Plus, you’ve obviously got all your Halloween staples to enjoy, and a good mix of your favorites and new entries.

Catch all the info below, get a tease of the Pretty Little Liars special, »

Films that'd get a fairer hearing if they weren't sequels

29 July 2014 4:42 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Some sequels are doomed to live in the shadow of the hits that triggered them. Here are a few examples...

Following up a successful movie with a sequel is a tough proposition for any writer or director, and it's often the case that such follow-ups fail to recreate the magic of their predecessors. But sometimes, sequels can offer a different yet entertaining experience of their own, and it's even possible that, if they didn't happen to share the same name as an earlier hit film, they might even have been better received.

This article's dedicated to a few of these kinds of films. They offer lots of excitement, comedy, jolts of terror and a smattering of great performances, and might have fared better with audiences and critics had they not been sequels. At the very least, they attempted to do something a little different than the films they followed. While other examples undeniably remain, »

Comic-Con Idea From Paul Rudnick: Supergay Man Of Steel?

24 July 2014 1:42 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Here’s some food for thought for Comic-Con: Paul Rudnick, the fine playwright and screenwriter of such films as Jeffrey, Addams Family Values and The Stepford Wives, has made a Facebook post on how ever-evolving movie superheroes can really change the spandex game. Under the heading Supergay, he writes: “Marvel has announced that in an upcoming edition, Thor will be a woman, and that the new Captain America will be black. And while there have been gay superheroes, and Archie Andrews has recently taken a bullet for his gay friend, Kevin, we could still use a re-thinking of a central icon. […] »

Team Top Ten: Best TV to Film Adaptations of All Time

19 July 2014 5:42 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Amir here, to welcome you to another edition of Team Top Ten, a poll of all of the website’s contributors. The topic du jour given that it's Emmy season is Best Films Adaptated from TV Series.

For as long as film and TV have coexisted, their fates, stars, successes, failures and histories have been entangled. Their ever-shifting dynamic has had an immense impact on both industries. The complexity of their relationship made devising a list like this one quite difficult, beginning with the question of what really constitutes an adaptation. For example, The Holy Grail and Life of Brian are not adapted from Monty Python's The Flying Circus; they are inspired by it, but one is more inspired than the other, so we rendered the former film eligible and the latter ineligible. On the other hand, series like Mission Impossible and Naked Gun present a different type of challenge »

Welcome to the Academy. 10 Interesting Invitations

26 June 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The Academy welcomes its new members at an invite only event in September, just as we begin to feel the rumblings of Oscar buzz everywhere.

While not every person nominated for the first time for an Oscar in any given year is invited to join the next year (isn't that weird?) it's common practice that they are. So new names like Lupita Nyong'o, Barkhad Abdi, and more established actors like Sally Hawkins and June Squibb will all be voting for the first time this coming season after walking the red carpets as nominees. That's expected. What's far more interesting is the people invited in any given year that have not been nominated.

Here are ten names I want to highlight because they're interesting invitations for one reason or another.

Sean Bobbitt - Cinematographer (12 Years a Slave) - egregiously snubbed last year which might have done it but that's not his only beautifully shot film. »

A few years after the film's release, Blair encountered trouble with the law when charged with possession of drugs and conspiracy to sell. She managed to turn her career around by the early '80s, going on »

Fitz and Mellie’s Kids Coming to Scandal

28 January 2014 2:39 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Scandal is looking to cast teen actors to play Jerry and Karen Grant, Fitz and Mellie's two kids who've been off at boarding school this whole time. TVLine reports that the little Grants will appear on the fifteenth episode of the season, which is currently scheduled to air at the end of March. Jerry is described as "quiet, smart and intense," and Karen is "polished, self-assured and older than her years." Meanwhile, baby Teddy is still largely absent, though every once in a while when he pops up he looks a little bit like Pubert, the baby from Addams Family Values. »

'The Lone Ranger' joins list of movies nominated for both Razzies and Oscars

16 January 2014 11:58 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

On Wednesday, The Lone Ranger received multiple Razzie nominations, including the notorious Worst Picture nod. The next day, The Lone Ranger was nominated for an Oscar, for best makeup.

This isn’t the first movie to get nods from both ends of the spectrum. Since the Razzies first began back in 1981, 47 movies have been nominated for both “awards”– some even for the same exact person or song. Here’s a look at the club The Lone Ranger just joined:
