Comic Screams Top 10 Horror Comics of 2008

29 December 2008 12:52 AM, PST | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

With the year coming to a close, Fangoria.com's Mike Fish presents his Top 10 favorite horror comic books of 2008, and fills you in on what you've been missing, and what's worth reading!

10.) Pigeons From Hell

Dark Horse Publishing http://www.darkhorse.com/

Writer Joe R. Lansdale takes on the classic Robert E. Howard tale with great passion and delivers a frightening story through the use of artist Nathan Fox and his unconventional, yet stunning artwork. Most of the book takes place at night, and colorist Dave Stewart enhances that environment by using colors you would only see with limited lighting by the moon making this the perfect book to read at night. If the visuals alone don’t captivate your attention, the back-story on the monster will as it undoubtedly influenced many well-known horror staples like Pumpkinhead and Children Of The Corn. The marriage between story and vision is superb in Pigeons From Hell, »

Fans freak out over Eliza Dushku's topless scene

28 December 2008 10:46 AM, PST | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

In Eliza Dushku's new serial killer film The Alphabet Killer, she's got a brief topless scene that's causing a huge stir among fans of the Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Wrong Turn star. It's not really racy at all (I mean, compared to the nudity some of her contemporaries have done, not to mention Angelina Jolie who is a walking topless scene) but for some reason people are making a huge stink about it. It's not even sexual - she's just changing her shirt.

Eliza plays a cop tracking a serial killer whose work causes her to hallucinate and eventually lands her in a mental institution. The Alphabet Killer comes out on DVD January 6th. www.alphabetkiller.com Watch the 'racy' clip below and decide for yourself...

Dr. Horribles Sing-Along Blog

23 December 2008 2:31 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

A good part of the charm of Joss Whedon’s 42-minute “Internet miniseries event” Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog is that its small scale, low-fi stunts, cheap props, and enthusiastic tone capture the aesthetic of something a bunch of teenagers cobbled together and put up on YouTube, hoping their peers would love it. Which is about what happened, except the teenagers were industry professionals, and their peers were anyone they could lure in for an experiment in Diy production and distribution. Written and directed during the writers’ strike as a side project for Whedon, his brothers Zack and Jed, and Jed’s fiancée Maurissa Tancharoen, Dr. Horrible launched online as a free three-part serial, starring Neil Patrick Harris as an adorably gawky supervillain who can’t bring himself to confess his feelings to crush object Felicia Day, even when she takes up with his cheesy archnemesis, Nathan Fillion. Whedon’s legion of Buffy The Vampire. »

Producer’s new batch of indie horror features

23 December 2008 9:47 AM, PST | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

Fango got word from producer Linda Craddock about several upcoming genre titles she’s involved with. The films run the gamut from slasher stories to paranormal chillers to flesheaters.

On two of the films, Craddock is a producer. Projections, written and to be directed by Jose Zambrano (Delivery) Cassella, focuses on Laura Carpenter, who, after witnessing the murders of her mother and sister, has grown into a successful artist and left her dark past behind. Laura begins having strange dreams, however, which she soon finds out are astral projections in which she is transported to other locations. Laura soon realizes she is visiting the grisly crime scenes of a serial killer—and the maniac has become aware of her presence. Melissa Gruver and Randy Molnar are also producers on this one. You can check out the movie’s MySpace page here.

Neil Patrick Harris Loves Being One of Joss Whedon's Players

23 December 2008 6:03 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

"Oh, God, I wish I could say there was going to be a Dr. Horrible sequel, but I know there's so many people involved in the creation of it that have a lot of other stuff going on right now," Neil Patrick Harris told Sci Fi Wire. "Mainly, Joss [is doing] Dollhouse, and he has another movie, Cabin in the Woods, that he's doing at the same time. So I don't know that anything would happen soon. But everyone has been super-enthusiastic about it, and I think that means that hopefully something will come."

Dr. Horrible just hit stores as a DVD after becoming one of the most talked about Internet sensations of the year, appearing on numerous Best Of lists. Harris, as the super-villain, recognizes that once you work with Whedon, you tend to get cast in his future projects.

After all, Dr. Horrible featured Firefly’s Nathan Fillion and Buffy »

Sarah Michelle Gellar has a death wish in her new film

22 December 2008 1:00 PM, PST | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

In the P.B. era (post-Buffy, that is), Sarah Michelle Gellar has had largely a hit-and-miss or totally-missed-it movie career. The Grudge in 2004? Hit. The Return in 2006? Miss. Suburban Girl in 2007? Never even heard of it. But as a loyal follower of the Buffyverse, I've always rooted for her to do well. So when I heard about her latest film, Veronika Decides to Die, I was naturally curious, if a tad wary.

Based on the bestselling 1998 novel of the same name by Paulo Coelho, the film follows Veronika, a young woman whose successful outward facade hides her deep depression. So, as the title suggests, she decides to commit suicide. But her attempt fails and she winds up in a mental institution instead, where she is told she has only days to live. Cheery, no. Interesting, yes.

The film also stars David Thewlis (Harry Potter films), Jonathan Tucker (The Ruins »

ABC promises to bring “Fables” to life

22 December 2008 12:00 PM, PST | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

If you’re a comic book fan, you know that your most trusted advisers are the employees of your comic store. After all, these people know who you really are. You can tell the nature of a woman by the comics she reads. (If she reads Strangers in Paradise, marry her.)

So, when a clerk from my comic store put the first Fables trade in my hands, I bought it without question. I was not disappointed.

Here’s the concept: Characters from familiar fairy tales have been forced out of their mythical homelands by “The Adversary” and now live in Fabletown, an undercover community within a luxury apartment in New York City. Those who look human do their best to blend in with the rest of society undetected. The others live at “The Farm” in upstate New York.

The Fables, as they call themselves, live in peace until someone murders Rose Red, »

First Look At Whedon.s Dollhouse

22 December 2008 1:57 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

There are many reasons to be excited bout 2009: Avatar, Star Trek and Watchmen, to name but three. One thing that’s had our Spider Sense tingling for quite some time, though, is the triumphant return of Joss Whedon (we are not worthy) to the small screen. Whedon’s his first sojourn into television since the criminally cancelled Firefly, Dollhouse stars Eliza ‘Faith from Buffy’ Dushku as Echo, one of a number of human ‘dolls’ who are programmed to fulfil clients’ fantasies before having their memories erased and being returned to the waiting area that gives the show its name. Entertainment Weekly has posted an exclusive clip from the pilot episode, where we see Echo emerging from a recent memory wipe. You can watch the Dollhouse clip here.Reports of rewrites and altercations from the set have caused some to worry abour Dollhouse but indications are that Whedon had simply »

New Dollhouse Clip

22 December 2008 12:24 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Entertainment Weekly has a new video clip from the February 13th premiere of Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse. In the clip, we see “the first time we see Echo (Eliza Dushku) wake up after having her memories wiped in the special memory-flushing chair” which “leads into a discussion between lab tech Topher (Fran Kranz) and Echo’s handler Boyd (Harry Lennix) about her last “date,” delving into just what being a doll/active means.” I’m still not excited for this show, as much as I would like to be. What do you guys think?

And the Latest Members of the Evil League of Evil are…

19 December 2008 2:48 PM, PST | Tilzy.tv | See recent Tilzy.TV news »

It’s an early Christmas for Joss Whedon fans. The highly anticipated DVD of the Buffy and Angel aeuteur’s wildly successful Dr. Horrible Sing-Along Blog ships today (at least if you live in the Us). The disc comes replete with musical commentary, Wiccan (yes, Wiccan) subtitles, the Making of Dr. Horrible Featureettes, a ton of easter eggs, and (my favorite part) the latest inductees into the Evil League of Evil. Earlier this year, Bad Horse announced his organization would officially accept applications for entry, and the 10 most immoral, wicked, and punny evildoers around would be welcomed into the League. Out of some 500+ entries I chose my fave five (and got one of them right!), but below is the nefarious set who actually made the cut. Enjoy these “seriously not good men (and women).” Mr. Terrible Calamitous Orphan Princess Zombie The Reverend L’Enfant Terrible Duchess of Defeet Tur Mohel »

Season Finale Preview: Are Dexter and Rita Headed for Trouble?

13 December 2008 4:33 PM, PST | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

As Rita Bennett, the fiancée of Dexter's eponymous leading man, Julie Benz radiates vulnerability, tenderness and belief that she'll soon have a normal, married life with her main squeeze, who's secretly a serial killer (Michael C. Hall). But on the cusp of their wedding day, danger looms over the couple — including a vendetta from the family of Dexter's recently deceased enemy, as well as Dexter's own nagging concerns about what giving up his independence will mean.

In addition to her role on Dexter, Benz plays Angela Donatelli in Punisher: War Zone, the third big-screen adaptation of the Marvel comic series. As the movie hits theaters for the second weekend and Dexter's third season finale arrives Sunday (9 pm/Et, Showtime), the Buffy alumna chatted with TVGuide.com about the dynamic between Rita and Dexter and whether the pair is headed for a "train wreck."

Charisma Enters House of Bones

13 December 2008 3:48 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

I've never been much of a fan of all those ghost hunting shows but if more ghost hunters looked like Charisma Carpenter I might start tuning in. Until that day arrives I'll have to settle for House of Bones, in which the former "Buffy"/"Angel"/"Charmed"/"Veronica Mars" starlet will play a ghost hunter getting more than she bargained for.

Corin Nemec (Mansquito, SS Doomtrooper) co-stars alongside Carpenter as TV ghost hunters that enter a reportedly haunted house that may prove to be the death of them. Produced by Leigh Scott (Transmorphers), Griff Furst (100 Million BC), and Ken Badish (Showdown at Area 51) under the Louisiana-based Bullet Films banner, directing duties for this paranormal scarefest fall to Jeffrey Lando, he of Decoys 2 and Insecticidal fame.

Look for House of Bones to premiere on the Sci-Fi Channel sometime in 2009.
