Although it's still dwarfed by the parent series, and its ratings dropped significantly in the second season, fans shouldn't worry that the Fear the Walking Dead TV show will be cancelled too soon. AMC renewed The Walking Dead prequel series through season four, back in April of 2017. What's not clear is whether that renewal was for a fourth and final season. It's likely that both creative and business considerations will influence that decision. Notably, despite its drop-off, Fear the Walking Dead is still AMC's second highest rated series. Will it end next season, or continue for years to come? Stay tuned. An AMC horror drama, Fear the Walking Dead stars Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Rubén Blades, Mercedes Mason, and Colman Domingo. Buffy veteran Emma Caulfield is also joining the new installment. The story unfolds in Los Angeles and Mexico and centers on »

Game of Thrones and Doctor Who are two television juggernauts with a few things in common. For one, they’re both tremendously successful, with massive fanbases that are amongst the most dedicated out there. Aside from that, they also both deal with fantasy themes (though the latter is certainly more sci-fi) and each show has also spent a long time on the air. But despite all of this, a crossover between the two isn’t something one would normally think about.
Peter Capaldi isn’t just anyone, though, and during a recent convention appearance this past weekend, the actor was asked which show he’d like to see Doctor Who have a crossover with. While his co-star, Pearl Mackie, put forth Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Capaldi chose HBO’s hit series.
“Well I’d like to see Game of Thrones,” he said. “I think the Doctor would be like ‘White Walkers? »

Temperatures are beginning to drop, fall wardrobes are coming out of storage and the TV shows that kept us company for the last 12 weeks are winding down.
Fortunately, our newest Quotes of the Week will preserve all the best sound bites from summer’s final offerings.
This time around, we’ve got an uncomfortable moment of intimacy on Preacher, strong opinions about baked goods on Insecure, even more pregnancy woes on Zoo and the end to a Buffy the Vampire Slayer debate via Battle of the Network Stars.

Sci-fi TV fans would love to see the Tardis land on the USS Enterprise one day, and while we’re still a way off from that ever happening, it turns out that the Doctor himself almost appeared in the Star Trek universe at one point.
Yes, that’s right. Outgoing Time Lord Peter Capaldi auditioned to play the lead role of Captain Benjamin Sisko on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. This intriguing bit of news comes courtesy of the trekdocs Twitter account, which unearths little-known facts about the series. This time, they’ve got hold of a list of actors who auditioned for the show from a UK casting call from back in 1992.

The supernatural CBS TV series "Charmed", showcased the magic of the 'Charmed Ones' from 1998 to 2006, as the 'Power of Three' survived demons, warlocks, sorcerers and failed romances. Now, with an ongoing comic book series and a "Charmed" TV reboot in development at The CW, just how would 'The Power of Three' fare in the world of 2017 ? :
Would their eccentric behaviour protecting innocents from demonic harm be documented in an errant tweet, or to an 'Instagram' follower ? While their witch side would keep family and friends at bay, could demons start trolling them on 'Facebook' ?
Would 'Phoebe' (Alyssa Milano) get a premonition from a tweet?
Would the 'freezing time' of 'Piper' (Holly Marie Combs) affect a 'Snapchat' video? Could their cell phones pick up signals from the 'Underworld'?

Class has been dismissed.
The Doctor Who spinoff, which made its stateside debut in April, has been cancelled after one season.
RelatedCable/Streaming Scorecard: What’s Renewed? What’s Cancelled?
Damian Kavanagh, who heads up BBC3 — the U.K. network where Class originally aired — confirmed the news on Thursday to British magazine Radio Times: “There was nothing wrong with it. I thought [writer] Patrick [Ness] did a great job; he explored an amazing world. In honesty, it didn’t really land for us on BBC3. Some shows don’t, and I have to make decisions about what we’re going to do »

I am a huge wimp when it comes to scary or gruesome films and TV shows. In particular, I hate anything involving blades on flesh (stabbings in particular). Obviously it's easy enough to avoid straight-up horror films, but the extent of my fear (which could well be pungophobia) means a lot of other random stuff is off limits, too. For example, while everyone else was raving about 13 Reasons Why earlier this year, I was giving it a very wide berth because I knew I'd have a panic attack if I was made to watch one pivotal scene. My entire life I avoided the seemingly innocuous City of Angels because a friend told me that, in one scene, Nicholas Cage accidentally chops his finger off. Truth is, much of my phobia (if that's what it is) is in my head. I can cope with some fantasy violence and the kind of »

Even the most beautiful and exotic locations can be home to the most hellish horrors on Earth. That's what a real estate team discovers the hard way when they descend into a World War II bunker in Gehenna: Where Death Lives, and with the new horror film enjoying a well-received film festival run, we caught up with director Hiroshi Katagiri and executive producer Saik Meng Kee for our latest Q&A feature to discuss funding the movie on Kickstarter, working with the legendary Lance Henriksen and Doug Jones, and a chance encounter with The Texas Chain Saw Massacre cinematographer Daniel Pearl during filming on the island of Tinian.
Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Hiroshi, and congratulations on your new film, Gehenna: Where Death Lives. How and when did you come up with the idea for the movie?

No matter how much of a die-hard fan you think you are of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, there's always new interesting facts to discover about the show as the years go by. Recently, I found out that Katie Holmes was initially offered the role as Buffy Summers and, yes, my mind was completely blown. (No one could have played that part better than Sarah Michelle Gellar.) Read on to see six other jaw-dropping casting facts about the series ahead. RelatedBuffy the Vampire Slayer: Where Are They Now? »

Warner Bros.’ plans to remake “Lord of the Flies” — but with young girls stranded on a remote island instead of boys — has gotten a lot of people scratching their heads. Fans of William Golding’s 1954 novel and the subsequent 1963 film by Peter Brook were quick to point out on social media that re-casting with all females just doesn’t make sense considering the dystopian storyline. “All-female ‘Lord of the Flies remake’ Sounds Like Someone Missed The F——– Point Of Lord Of The Flies,” one user tweeted.

We thought all the great vintage music documentaries were accounted for, but Murray Lerner’s look at the Newport Folk Festival in the mid-‘sixties is a terrific time machine to a kindler, gentler musical era. The mix of talent is broad and deep, and we get to see excellent vintage coverage of some real legends, before the hype & marketing plague arrived.

Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, the executive producers of NBC hit “This Is Us,” are in advanced talks to produce an untitled “Suicide Squad” spinoff based on Batman supervillains the Joker and Harley Quinn, played by Jared Leto and Margot Robbie. Then there’s a solo movie in development, possibly directed by “The Hangover’s” Todd Phillips, that dives into the Joker’s backstory, except Leto won’t play him here.
Potentially even more confusing: These Jokers won’t have anything to do with each other. That means two actors will be putting their own spins on Batman’s archnemesis. Educating audiences could prove tricky.
After all, the approach is radically different from how Marvel has comprehensively planned its cinematic universe under studio president Kevin Feige. Marvel films feature a consistent “house style,” making »

“I am myself indifferent honest, but yet I could accuse me of such things that it were better my mother had not borne me.”
—Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act 3, Scene 1
Joss Whedon created Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and is credited with writing strong female roles and espousing feminist ideals – but not by his ex-wife, Kai Cole, who on the blog The Wrap accused him of being a serial cheater during their marriage and was a “hypocrite preaching feminist ideals.” This has led to a number of (now ex) fans venting their anger and feelings of betrayal.
Is it true? I dunno. I don’t know Whedon and Cole personally. Could she be lying? Possibly. Could he be an asshole? Possibly. It’s not the point of this column, however. The question I want to consider is – should Whedon, or any artist or celebrity, be considered a role model?

When the end of each summer approaches, it's time to sharpen your pencils, polish your apples, and make sure you stay on the good side of any telekinetic classmates. And even if you haven't had study hall since The Breakfast Club first danced on the big screen, the dawn of every school year might still make you smile or shudder with recollections of cafeteria conversations, passionate pep rallies, and your favorite horror films set in the halls of high school, a subject we take notes on in a new episode of the Corpse Club podcast.
In episode 14 of Corpse Club, titled "High School Horror Films," co-hosts Patrick Bromley, Heather Wixson, Scott Drebit, and Derek Anderson skip back-to-school shopping and instead prepare for another year of detention by looking back at some of their favorite high school horror films, including Carrie (1976), Scream, The Faculty, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992), Disturbing Behavior, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge »

Canaries is a British feature getting a Horror Channel FrightFest screening this weekend. We've been taking a look...
Think of big screen science fiction, and it’s likely to bring to mind glossy images of alien spacecrafts obliterating the White House, monsters running amuck in New York or Tokyo, or a post-apocalyptic Los Angelean wasteland. It’s perhaps unsurprising that these are the moments which linger in our collective consciousness; on screen at least, such cataclysmic events are usually clustered around the world’s big cities, with filmmakers giving little thought to how they might play out elsewhere.
There have been exceptions of course, such as classics like Village Of The Damned (1960) and The Stepford Wives (1975) and, in more recent years, UK filmmakers have also been looking to redress the balance. Marc Price set his 2008 zombie movie Colin on a suburban British estate, for example, while Stephen Fingleton »
