Great news for fans of the possession sub-genre. News from Anchor bay has dropped, regarding the DVD/Bluray release of Buried writer, Chris Sparling’s The Atticus Institute, a demonic possession film produced by The Conjuring producer, Peter Safran. Anchor Bay is releasing the film on DVD/Bluray this coming January 20th and though it sounds a bit like The Quiet Ones, truth be told, it sounds like it could very well be an entertaining time.
“Dr. Henry West founded The Atticus Institute in the early 1970s to test individuals expressing supernatural abilities – E.S.P., clairvoyance, psychokinesis, etc. Despite witnessing several noteworthy cases, nothing could have prepared Dr. West and his colleagues for Judith Winstead. She outperformed every subject they had ever studied – soon gaining the attention of the U.S. Department of Defense, who subsequently took control of the research facility. The more experiments they conducted on Judith, the »

Monty Python's "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life," the jaunty singalong that first appeared in the comedy troupe's 1979 film The Life of Brian, has long been a staple at funerals for its optimistic tone, bubbly melody and lyrics about one's own demise. But in a new survey of funeral directors, the track has become the most popular song to play at British funerals, according to the Telegraph.

General Talbot continues to hunt down both Shield, while Director Coulson attempts to rebuild the secret organisation. But that is put on hold as an powerful object is rediscovered, and another powerful adversary is unleashed by Hydra.
After the strong second half to what was generally seen as a not so good first season of the Marvel TV show, the heat is on for Agents of Shield to capitalise on the shot of adrenaline it has been given in the form of the ‘Hydra Uprising’ story (courtesy of Captain America: The Winter Soldier). And from what I saw in this opening episode of season two, I am hopeful that the show will continue to improve on that.
The opening scene helped make the show feel like it was becoming even more like the small-scale version of the Cinematic »

A quick review of tonight's "Marvel's Agents of Shield" coming up just as soon as I have some Enya albums I've been hiding... "The Writing on the Wall" brought the arc of Coulson's incessant doodling to a welcome end, in an episode that was a good showcase for Clark Gregg — playing something deeper and more complex than the role usually affords him the opportunity to do — but also darker and/or more graphic than this show is probably meant to go. As Brian Van Holt's Sebastian carved up his victims, threatened Hank Thompson's family, and talked about cutting the information out of himself and others — on top of the return of all the horrific imagery from Project Tahiti — I began to find myself empathizing with Mac, who spent much of the hour wondering what kind of horror show he signed up for. "Shield" is obviously a show with life-and-death stakes, »

When news broke that Bryan Singer would be returning to the fold for X-Men: Days Of Future Past, much to the delight of mutant fan-peoples, the director sweetened the deal even further with a promise. "There will be some fixing," he said, hinting that his third X-flick (after X-Men and X2) would address perceived problems with X-Men: The Last Stand, aka the threequel Singer dumped in favour of Superman Returns.
Here's the thing: X-Men: The Last Stand didn't need fixing. In a world where movie threequels often topple promising trilogies, it stands out as a fun, action-packed, stakes-raising gambit that features some of the trilogy's boldest set pieces and more than a few gob-smacking twists. Picking up months after X2's downbeat, watery climax, we find the X-Men mourning the death of Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) even as Worthington Labs announce they've found a mutant cure. Needless to say this divides the mutants, »
Following three TV movies over the past decade or so, TNT decided a while back to turn its "The Librarian" franchise into a regular TV series. Now the results can be seen in a new full-length trailer for "The Librarians" released today by the network.
While Noah Wyle led the charge in the telemovies, here he takes a back seat and will pop in and out in a recurring role as the enigmatic supervisor of a new group of characters who will take on the task of looking for artifacts with mythical powers around the globe.
Said new faces include the likes of Rebecca Romijn ("X-Men"), Emmy winning comedian John Laroquette, Christian Kane ("Angel"), Lindy Booth ("Dawn of the Dead") and Australian soap star John Kim. Look out for a Bruce Campbell cameo too in the trailer, whilst the likes of Bob Newhart and Jane Curtin will pop up in the show. »

Rebecca Romijn (X-Men), Christian Kane ("Leverage," "Angel"), Lindy Booth (Dawn of the Dead, The Philanthropist) and John Kim (Neighbors, The Pacific) star in the series as the newest protectors of the world's mystical treasures, with Emmy winner John Larroquette ("Night Court," Deception) as their reluctant caretaker.

Today, "The Librarians" has debuted a new trailer, which you can check out in the player below. »
Admittedly, this story isn’t really horror-related aside from being of special interest to certain fans of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel.” That’s because The Asylum is launching a preemptive strike against the movie version of 50 Shades of Grey… Continue Reading →
Just in time for Halloween, Daniel Radcliffe gets some special powers and couple of appendages growing from his temples in Radius’ Horns, which will be this week’s biggest rollout among specialty newcomers. The title received a warm welcome at a Cinema Society event attended by its stars this week in New York. This week’s newbies are dominated by nonfiction fare, though with some exceptions. Kino Lorber is opening French/Swiss maestro Jean-Luc Godard’s Goodbye To Language following a successful festival run. It has been critically acclaimed, and the company is expecting it to be a box office winner too. The 2014 Best Documentary winners from South by Southwest and Tribeca are going head-to-head in their theatrical debuts. Radius’ The Great Invisible (SXSW) opened in limited release Wednesday in an exclusively theatrical rollout, and The Orchard is bowing Point And Shoot (Tribeca) in a single NYC run.

It’s Halloween! Icicles are glistening from window sills. Chestnuts are roasting on open fires. North Pole elves are… hang on, no. None of that nice, fluffy stuff is happening. At Halloween, demonic creatures hunt for flesh, monsters creep out of their graves, and TV does its level best to freak us all the hell out.
In the spirit of all that, we asked our writers to select and share the TV episodes, horror or otherwise, that have made them whimper with fear. Here they all are, 31 of them, because, well, at Halloween, we like things to add up to 31.
Note that this isn’t a Top 10, or a Best Of, nor is it listed in order of scariness. It’s a collection of the particular »
Gotham, Season 1, Episode 6: “Spirit of the Goat”
Written by Ben Edlund
Directed by Tj Scott
Airs Mondays at 8pm Et on Fox
Unlike last week’s “Viper”, this week’s Gotham turns in a case of the week that truly amps up the creep factor without going too far outside of the gritty reality that the show has set up. “Spirit of the Goat” presents an antagonist that not only fits well tonally with the series, but is entertaining, with a somewhat supernatural mystery whose answer falls in line with the noir style. One of the episode’s most pleasant surprises is that it places Harvey Bullock in the lead, allowing him some much needed character depth, as well as highlighting his skills as a great detective in his own right. This episode also provides a significant development in the ongoing Major Crimes Unit investigation of Jim Gordon and »

CSI: Channel 5, 9pm
This Us TV procedural brings its 14th season to a close with a very personal episode for Jim Brass (Paul Guilfoyle), who must make »
This review will be largely thematic, rather than a straightforward recapping of the events, which you can find out by watching the episode anyway (which is really good, and the review contains spoilers, so you might as well first watch it on official catch-up).
Season 2 sees the new Director Coulson's smaller, in-the-process-of-being-reconstructed Shield become underdogs, trying to stop Hydra while simultaneously evading the likes of the ridiculously gung-ho (and newly promoted) Brigadier General Glenn Talbot (Adrian Pasdar). (Seriously, how did he ever make any friends (that's assuming he has any), or get married, or even get promoted at in the first place? He's extremely tenacious, but kind of a jerk, using power to intimidate anyone who might possibly get in his way (or even try to work with him). And his idea of motivating people is to explain to them that he's threatening them less.)
The plot is somewhat reminiscent »

The folks at Fox recently announced they are developing a TV series pilot titled Frankenstein, but based on the show’s synopsis, you shouldn’t expect to see a mob of angry townspeople with pitchforks and blazing torches anytime soon.
Deadline reports that Fox is developing a pilot for Frankenstein, “a grounded sci-fi drama” with Howard Gordon and Rand Ravich executive producing, with the latter also writing the project. Here’s the pilot’s synopsis (via Deadline):
“Frankenstein centers on Adam Tremble, a morally corrupt FBI agent who is given a second chance at life when he is brought back from the dead. Now younger and stronger, Tremble will have to choose between his old temptations and his new sense of purpose — dealing with threats beyond the FBI’s capabilities. All the while navigating the complicated relationship with his “creators”: an antisocial Internet billionaire and his bio-engineer twin sister. »
