In addition to terrorizing teenagers on the silver screen, Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees stalked and slashed 8-bit characters in the worlds of two 1989 Nes games appropriately titled A Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th. Nostalgic gamers can rejoice now that Funko and Super7 have captured the garish garb of the Nes versions of Freddy and Jason with new Nycc-exclusive ReAction figures.
The Nes Freddy and Jason figures will be available exclusively at Toy Tokyo’s booth at the New York Comic Con, which runs from October 9th – 12th at New York City’s Javits Center, and we have a look at the figures below (thanks to Toy Tokyo for the image!).
As a reminder, Funko and Super7’s ReAction Horror Series figures and Universal Monsters figures are now available. Similar to previous releases, the figures are 3 3/4 inches and come in retro Kenner-like packaging. These figures are priced at $9.99 apiece. »

Every week, Shelf Life sees Tom White select and talk about a movie that lives on his DVD shelf, one he thinks we should all see. With The Crow, director Alex Proyas made a huge mark on the main stream showing a lot of promise with his signature style and dark tone. While the likes of I, Robot and Knowing have seen his styleget diluted throughout the years, it was his third feature that showed Proyas at his best, and gave us a great sense of what he could achieve. That movie was 1998's Dark City. One full year before The Matrix (which also used some of the same sets), Dark City explored many similar themes and even shared many plot beats with The Wachowski's sci-fi classic, but while that movie went big and flashy, Dark City went smaller and deeper, with Rufus Sewell's John Murdoch discovering the city »

Maybe you think you know the story of Dracula, but Dracula Untold is unfurling a drama-packed revamp of the classic vampire tale full of gruesome war, family loyalty, and heinous curses. In the trailer above, see Luke Evans (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Fast & Furious 6) as Vlad Tepes, a man who will risk anything to save his family from the greedy maws of war, even if it means becoming a monster. Dracula Untold, or Dracula: Year Zero as it seems it's being called overseas, is intended to be a key step in Universal Pictures effort to reboot their classic monsters, like Dracula, Frankenstein, the Invisible Man, Creature From the Black Lagoon and the Wolfman. While the announcement of that plan is relatively recent, this particular re-imagined origin story has been a long time in coming. Back in 2007, The Crow's helmer, Alex Proyas, was hired to direct the project. »

Fans have become a bit jaded when it comes to these mythology-based fantasy epics (thanks Clash/Wrath Of The Titans), but can Alex Proyas (The Crow, Dark City), and a very impressive (though decidedly non-Egyptian looking) cast change that? Below we have the first artwork and an exciting sounding synopsis. Magic, monsters, gods and madness reign throughout the palaces and pyramids of the Nile River Valley in this action-adventure inspired by the classic mythology of Egypt. With the survival of mankind hanging in the balance, an unexpected hero takes a thrilling journey to save the world and rescue his true love. Set (Gerard Butler), the merciless god of darkness, has usurped Egypt’s throne, plunging the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict. With only a handful of heroic rebels opposing Set’s savage rule, Bek (Brenton Thwaites), a bold and defiant mortal, enlists the aid of powerful »
The Blood Stream mines the Internet for horror gold so you don’t have to, delivering streamable horror titles never before featured on Dread Central. Occasionally I’ll dredge up something good, maybe even great. To find those gems, I’ll have to sift through a lot of breathtakingly bad cinema. Enjoy!
Beneath Loch Ness has all the trappings of a Syfy original movie, though as far as I can tell that’s not how it came into existence. It has a plot built from half-assed homage and blatant rip-offs, obviously fake “location” settings, a Princess Bride synth score, and a list of B-movie has-beens longer than Nessie’s tail.
The framework here is basically a knock off of Jaws (of course it is), complete with a dopey local official who opposes preventing further deaths because it’s tourist season. The big difference is in this one, the incident that »
Novi, Michigan – Gone are the days when comic conventions were solely places for fans to search through long boxes for that one issue that completes their collection. Pop culture and movies have long since taken over these events to create massive celebrations of all things geek. While the Mecca for all cons is in San Diego, Metro Detroiters are lucky to have a con of their own – the Motor City Comic Con.
Now in its twenty-fifth year, Motor City Comic Con 2014 will be taking place on May 16th-18th at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi. There are plenty of TV favorites, comic artists, and professional wrestlers to see while you’re there, but since we care more about movies here at CinemaNerdz, I give you the five best bets for movie enthusiasts at this year’s con.
This year, Motor City Comic Con will be »

To fill the void left by the departure of "Numbers" a few years ago, CBS is back with another drama about eccentric geniuses helping the government solve crimes -- except "Scorpion" is inspired by a true story. Walter O'Brien ("Game of Thrones's" Elyes Gabel) leads a think tank of young braniacs trying to make the world a better place. But when Lax's mainframe is mysteriously hacked and 56 airborne flights are in danger of crashing like in "Die Hard II: Die Harder," O'Brien and his crew are recruited by a no-nonsense Homeland Security agent ("Die Hard II: Die Harder's" Robert Patrick) to help. They set up shop in a diner, where a waitress (Katharine McPhee) and her secret genius son also pitch in. Watch the trailer here: "Scorpion" also stars Eddie Kaye Thomas ("American Pie"), Ari Stidham and Jadyn Wong. And it looks like Ernie Hudson ("Ghostbusters," "The Crow") gets some screen time as well, »

Fast & Furious 7 fans, here’s the latest on the production:
For years, folks have said that computers were going to replace us. And they may be right. Especially at the cinema. With the technological advances in CG face-mapping, complex voice-replicating software, and motion capture…we may soon find ourselves in a cinematic landscape where actors can be replicated by digital counterparts. Such is the case with Paul Walker and Fast & Furious 7. According to a source for THR, the sixth sequel to The Fast and The Furious may have found its answer to “How do you solve a problem like Paul Walker dying mid-production?”
“They have hired four actors with bodies very similar to Paul’s physique and they will be used for movement and as a base. Paul’s face and voice will be used on top using CGI,” says the unnamed source who works within the Fast & Furious 7 production. »

In February of 2012, Legendary Pictures pulled the plug on Paradise Lost. It was to be a loose adaptation of John Milton's 17th century poem. Director Alex Proyas ("The Crow") had planned to use the most advanced 3D and motion capture technology to bring the biblical saga to life, but in the end budget concerns were too much to overcome. Legendary, tried numerous times to rework the numbers to get it below $120 million, but it was too daunting a task. At the heart of the issue, was the enormous amount of visual effects that were required for the celestial battles, that involved massive aerial warfare. It would've featured an all-star cast: Bradley Cooper as Lucifer, Benjamin Walker as the archangel Michael, Casey Affleck as Gabriel, Diego Boneta as Adam, Camilla Belle as Eve and Dijmon Hounsou as Abdiel, the Angel of Death.

Getting people psyched up for the new 24 series, 24: Live Another Day, may strike many people as something along the lines of Coke commercials. At this point, are you really selling to anyone? We all know whether or not we’re interested in Coke.
Still, despite the idea that pulling in the completely uninitiated may be a questionable pursuit, Fox is pretty clear on the idea that it wants to make sure it doesn’t miss anyone. The new teaser doesn’t exactly give you a lot to go on, perhaps in a way similar to the idea that Coke commercials don’t exactly explain the product. But, it does at least give you the impression that it may pull off the difficult and dangerous attempt of standing next to the previous entries. I’m not absolutely convinced that this is a game we can keep playing, but the trailer looks good. »
