Anyone that follows any of my social media profiles (I’m on everything short of LinkedIn) is aware that I watch a lot of television. Discovering cult classics like The Prisoner to current hits like American Horror Story, I legit schedule my lack of social life around my shows. I do have morals and refuse to post spoilers unlike the many assholes out there who just can’t resist a good Game Of Thrones supposed death. My love always resides in horror and there’s a variety of horror programming on several networks, each aiming for their own Walking Dead hit, but I don’t stick to just one type of programming. There’s other shows I’ve been checking out (Ok, maybe obsessed with) that prove to be just as riveting and, at times, just as scary as what you might find in a murder house.
David Semel has been brought onboard to direct the pilot episode of the Bryan Fuller-produced upcoming "Star Trek" TV series set for CBS All Access in the U.S., Space in Canada and Netflix around the rest of the world.

Along with offering hope for fans of "Hannibal" earlier today, producer Bryan Fuller has also spoken a bunch about his "Star Trek" TV series currently in the works ahead of an early 2017 launch on CBS' All Access streaming service.
Fuller, who got his start on TV working on episodes of "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" and "Star Trek: Voyager," is returning to the fold and this time has the keys to the kingdom. Obviously enthusiastic about the material, he spoke with Collider at the Saturn Awards this week and offered a ton of updates about the show's current status.
He confirmed the first season will be thirteen episodes with production aiming to run from September through to March. He confirmed it will be serialised with one story over thirteen episodes.

Mark Korven is a Toronto-based, award-winning composer of music for film and television, and has also composed feature film scores for acclaimed directors Deepa Mehta, Patricia Rozema and Vincenzo Natale. His latest work, for Robert Eggers‘ feature The Witch, helped elevate the truly unsettling film. The story follows a family of seven who are pulled apart at the seams by a malevolent force; while there are prolonged moments of downtime, it is still non-stop tension. The film is a “folk-tale” and if there’s anything to be learned, it is to honor your Mother and Father, don’t make a pact with Black Phillip (or any goat for that matter), and never play peek-a-boo with an infant in a New England field.
Sometimes, a film and its music are so symbiotic it’s impossible to separate one from the other. For instance, were you to only listen to the music from Timecrimes, »

A New England folktale envisioned by production designer turned director Robert Eggers has become a critical and box office darling. As striking as The Witch‘s imagery of a 17th century Puritan family exiled to live beside an ominous forest is, it is made even more haunting when combined with the score conceived by Toronto-based composer Mark Korven (Cube). Filmmaker: You must be pleased with the critical and box office reaction to The Witch. Korven: Both have been amazing. I certainly didn’t expect for the movie to go this far. When I started working on it I thought that a lot of people weren’t going […] »
